Chapter 39 – They had already reached a relationship milestone of sleeping together on the same stone bed (2)
After all, he had once been an aggressive and prideful alpha wolf.
Ruan Qiuqiu could understand why he was in this mood, so she didn’t insist on making Mr. Food Reserve admit that he had woken up. Although she felt sympathy for his pride, she wasn’t completely over him telling her to stay away yesterday.
Ruan Qiuqiu’s eyebrows slightly moved. She curved her lips into a smile. Enduring the soreness and pain in her legs and feet, she sat up and worriedly asked, “Husband… Did you faint again because of your serious injuries?”
She saw that the tip of Mr. Gray Wolf’s ear had turned reddish, but he didn’t refute her words.
Ruan Qiuqiu felt bad for him and also found his behavior laughable. She draped her wedding outfit over herself as an outer layer, then she carefully crawled off the bed. She did her best to avoid touching Mr. Gray Wolf on her way off the bed.
That wolf had too many injuries. If she accidentally touched him anywhere, it would probably cause him pain.
As she wrapped animal skins around her feet, Ruan Qiuqiu saw that Mr. Gray Wolf was trembling from her peripheral vision. Cold wind was blowing through the cracks of the tattered animal skin curtain. She shivered too. “It’s very cold, right? I’ll go start a fire.”
After she finished putting on the makeshift shoes, she stumbled over to the stone stove, picked up the flint, and worked on starting a fire.
This type of firewood was truly special. Although it had been completely burned, there weren’t much ashes left in the stone stove. It was very easy to light it on fire too.
After the fire was set up, Ruan Qiuqiu felt that the somewhat damp cave was warming up.
Enduring the pain from her injured feet, she slowly walked back to the stone bed to observe Mr. Gray Wolf’s condition.
He seemed a bit better. Although he was pretending to be unconscious, he was no longer coughing blood.
However, the animal skin she had placed under his neck was frightfully stained and sections of his long hair was matted together from the blood. The handsome wolf’s face, which already looked sinister from the scar, looked even more horrifying with blood drying on his face.
“Thank god, you’re not coughing blood anymore.” Taking advantage that the wolf was pretending to be unconscious, Ruan Qiuqiu lifted up the blood-stained hair, revealing Mr. Gray Wolf’s entire face.
She looked at his deathly pale face and his unnaturally shaking eyelashes. While stretching out her finger, she mobilized her water ability and explained, “Fortunately, my mutated water ability has a weak healing effect…”
As Ruan Qiuqiu said this, a drop of water slowly condensed at her fingertip. Worried that the droplet would fall off, she blurted out “Mr. Food Reserve” instead of “husband”.
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…”
Since she had already said those words, she put on a bold face and ignored that Mr. Gray Wolf’s brows had furrowed even more. Gently pinching his chin, she fed the droplet that contained healing effects.
After doing this, Ruan Qiuqiu immediately took two steps back. She hoped that while the wolf wasn’t paying attention, she could change back how she addressed him. “Husband, you have to get better soon.”
After saying those words at the speed of light, she picked up the animal skin on the stone table as well as on the wooden basin she had used last night from the floor. She turned around and left the bedroom by wiggling through the gap between the animal skin she had pressed to the wall with a stone bench and the cave wall.
Shortly after she left, Mr. Gray Wolf slowly opened his eyes.
Although what he saw was the same whether he opened his eyes or not, he still instinctively did so. His blue-gray eyes chased after the figure of Ruan Qiuqiu, who had just left the bedroom.
The droplet that she had fed him had a slight chill. That feeling spread from his lips to his mouth and throat. She had said the droplet only had a weak healing effect, but almost instantly, that droplet gave him relief from the severe pain he felt. The droplet also had strong spiritual energy.
