Chapter 197 – Ruan Qiuqiu opened up her eyes slowly and she saw bright light in front of her (2)
The weather was surprisingly good today. The sun was out and shined on the walls of the mountain, giving them a light and warm golden look.
A little bit of light shone inside the cave and casted onto young Mr. Grey Wolf’s cheeks. It made him looked like he was bathed in light.
In warm weather like this, there would be an abundance of food and it was also much saver to hunt.
Ruan Qiuqiu still didn’t want him to go. She could sense that she didn’t have much time left to keep him company.
This time, however, young Mr. Grey Wolf was very determinant.
He insisted on going no matter what Ruan Qiuqiu said.
Ruan Qiuqiu nodded “docilely” (helplessly) but the wolf cub was still a little worried.
Picking up Ruan Qiuqiu’s hand he hooked her pinky with his and then touched her forehead with his.
“Wolf clan prom-, promise,” said young Mr. Grey Wolf seriously. “Wai-wait for wolf to come back.”
Ruan Qiuqiu wanted to laugh but once young Mr. Grey Wolf had left, she couldn’t share the feeling that what he had done was somewhat familiar.
It seemed that big Mr. Gray Wolf had done the same things before she entered into the memory world.
If that really was wolf-clan’s promise, then what was big Mr. Gray Wolf trying to tell her?
She had already figured out that Yuan Jue did not dislike nor resent her as she had initially thought.
Ruan Qiuqiu had no idea what time had done to the cute young Mr. Grey Wolf. To a point that he became worse and worse at expressing himself and getting along with.
Closing her eyes, she waited for the wolf cub to come home.
Ruan Qiuqiu waited for a long, long time and still didn’t see any signs of young Mr. Grey Wolf when it was already almost dark outside.
Ruan Qiuqiu was getting a little worried. Most of her body had already turned transparent. Any later, she just might have departed from the memory world.
She stood up on one foot as she leaned against the wall. She picked up a wooden bat from inside the cave and, using it to support her consciousness that was falling apart, wanted to go out to look for the wolf.
She hadn’t even taken a few steps out when she heard laughter coming from not too far away. It was the male demons from the Water Pig Tribe talking. “What a silly wolf. He wanted to trade his tail for herbs. Oh mi, that was funny. What could we possibly want his tail for?”
“Tsk. You weren’t there at the time. Zhuzhu’s father beat him up so much that he was vomiting blood. You didn’t see that look of disbelief and desperation in his eyes at the time.”
“Tsk. He’s a wolf demon, right? Why did he care about herbs for humans?”
“He had probably lost his mind. Let’s stop talking about him. So creepy. Hurry up, he’s about to stop breathing. Let’s hurry up and toss him back into his cave and leave him on his own. That way no one can say that our tribe had wronged him.”
The voice from afar got closer and closer. Ruan Qiuqiu felt like her heart was being pricked by a million of needles. Tears streamed down her face uncontrollably.
With a loud THUG! sound along with the smell of blood, two adult male demons tossed the young Mr. Grey Wolf, who were alive and well just that afternoon, into the cave.
There was blood all over him and half of his tail was broken off. He, however, was clutching something tightly in his hands.
With an indescribably anger and aching of her heart, Ruan Qiuqiu could barely stand. She was shaking so much that she could hardly breath.
This was done by Zhuzhu’s dad?
But wasn’t that the good demon that had helped young Mr. Grey Wolf in the past?
He had told her in the last couple of days how Zhuzhu’s father had given him so hot water in the past and had also given him this very old piece of animal skin that he had here.
What did it mean by being banished?
What did it mean by leaving him on his own?
So, being bullied and having stones thrown at him was only a small portion of the nightmare?
So, Fire Wolf Tribe wasn’t the first tribe that abandoned him?
How many times had her young Mr. Grey Wolf been abandoned?
