Chapter 37 – Why was she sleeping next to him?! (3)
The conversation that had taken place in the Fire Wolf Tribe’s shaman’s cave was so short that it was like an insignificant interlude in the snowy night.
The interlude didn’t affect Lin Xun, who had been scolded and was walking back to his cave with an ashen face; it didn’t obstruct the heavy snow that fell to ground without restraint; it had no effect on the inhabitants of a cave that was at the edge of the forest. Ruan Qiuqiu, who had an animal skin wrapped around her, was sweetly sleeping. By her side, Mr. Gray Wolf, who had fainted because of his injuries, was still unconscious.
The snow fell for a long time. Ruan Qiuqiu, who had been tired for a long time and hadn’t had a chance to rest until now, also slept for a long time.
So much so that she slept even longer than Mr. Gray Wolf.
When Mr. Gray Wolf regained consciousness, she was still asleep. She was sleeping sweetly too.
Yuan Jue had thought since he had coldy told her, “Stay away from me”, she would definitely be unhappy. She would probably leave him lying on the cold ground, beat him up to vent her anger, or go straight to turning him into wolf jerky.
He had already prepared himself to wake up on the cold ground before falling unconscious.
His slender fingers gently brushed the soft animal skin underneath him. His upper body, which was naked after he had transformed into human form, didn’t feel any dampness or pain. He only felt the warmth of being wrapped in an animal skin.
Even his stomach, which had been in constant pain from not eating in a long time, felt better.
She must have fed him.
As Mr. Gray Wolf felt the changes in his condition, he couldn’t resist slowly clenching the animal skin underneath him.
Why did she do this?
That… human named Ruan Qiuqiu.
Yes, that human named Ruan Qiuqiu, where was she now?
Mr. Gray Wolf suppressed the strange emotions in his heart. He tried to stretch out his demon consciousness to observe Ruan Qiuqiu.
But right now, he was so weak that he didn’t have any demon energy available. He tried a few times, but he couldn’t even “see” the spot where he was lying down, much less the rest of the cave to capture the image of Ruan Qiuqiu’s figure.
He exerted himself physically to open his eyes, but he only saw familiar darkness.
His wounds and leg stump throbbed with pain. Mr. Gray Wolf pursed his pale lips. A thought suddenly flashed through his mind.
Could a demon or fiend have kidnapped her and eaten her while he was unconscious?
His heart abruptly leaped up in alarm. If he was in his demon form, his fur would be bristling.
Mr. Gray Wolf’s nails uncontrollably shifted into sharp claws, and he accidentally poked ten inconspicuous holes in the animal skin.
He didn’t know why he cared so much about that human. He had clearly thought it through already; he wouldn’t let her stay by his side for long.
And yet, he really wanted to know, where was she right now? Was she alive?
As he thought of how she had blushed because of him yesterday, it felt hard to breath. He wanted to speak, but an iron taste came from his throat.
Blood slowly dripped down from his lips, but he didn’t even have the strength to raise his hand to wipe it away.
He could only weakly cough.
Really, he was just like a useless person.
“… Huh?” Ruan Qiuqiu was awakened by the bout of light coughing. Right after waking up, she saw that the wolf demon lying next to her was painfully coughing out blood with his eyes open.
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…” This image was so horrifying that it took several seconds before she could react.
Her first reaction was – Mr. Food Reserve was so hard to raise! Fortunately, she hadn’t removed the animal skin she had put underneath him last night to catch the food and water.
Ruan Qiuqiu blinked. Her whole body felt sore and painful. She almost couldn’t move her legs and feet. After recovering from her shock of seeing Mr. Gray Wolf coughing blood, she didn’t care about anything else and rolled over to his side.
Very worried, she forced herself to raise her arm despite barely being able to so and poke his hand, which was underneath an animal skin.
She worriedly asked, “Husband, why are you coughing blood? Are you in a lot of pain? When did you wake up? Ah, the fire went out. No wonder it’s so cold…”
Shocked to hear a voice by his side, Yuan Jue stopped coughing for a moment. In the next moment, the combination of surprise, happiness, anger, and shyness made his coughing even worse.
This human, why was she sleeping next to him?!
