Chapter 54 – But now, she felt that being able to eat artificial meat was also a kind of happiness (2)
Ruan Qiuqiu thought this was very strange. She thought of how terrifying it had been to see how these black spots had been rapidly spreading when they were outside in the snow. She made a bold guess by connecting these spots to the fiend that had been killed.
Could it be that these numerous black spots were because Mr. Gray Wolf had gotten infected with the fiend’s poison and energy during the fight?
Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t know if her guess was right or not. But if she was right and the healing effect of her water ability could restrain the fiend energy, that would explain everything.
In that case, she had to feed Mr. Gray Wolf more of the healing water so that he could get better sooner.
After cultivating yesterday afternoon, she had increased the amount of healing water she could produce up to seven or eight droplets a day. But, she had already used up the maximum amount and couldn’t easily produce anymore.
Ruan Qiuqiu sighed. Her head was throbbing. Although her hands and feet were warm, the rest of her body was cold. These were signs that she was coming down with a cold.
However, she knew that she couldn’t get sick right now.
Gray Wolf Tianluo was already badly injured. If she got a fever and couldn’t get out of bed, then they were doomed.
Ruan Qiuqiu endured her exhaustion and decided to cook something.
When people were hungry, their immune system would be very weak. Even though they had limited food, this wasn’t the time to save it.
Ruan Qiuqiu shivered. She took out a palm-sized jerky, cut off most of it, and then cut that part into tiny strips before putting it into the pot to cook. She added a small piece of salt into the pot, dried herself off, and pushed herself to condense another droplet of water and added that into the pot.
She wanted to cook some meat to feed the wolf.
According to her memory, most of the demons in this world had a primarily meat diet. Although demons could survive by eating plants, the nutrition from plants for demons was a lot less than what they could get from eating meat.
She had been very frugal before because she didn’t know when the snow would stop, so they had to be conservative with their food.
But now, she could see that they could always hunt more food. It would be too late for regrets if the wolf died.
She didn’t know what kind of emotions she felt towards Mr. Gray Wolf, but there was one thing she was sure of. She didn’t want to lose him.
While waiting for the meat to cook, Ruan Qiuqiu looked at Mr. Gray Wolf’s hands. He hadn’t loosened his grip around the stuff he was clutching. She wanted to pry open his hands.
He was holding the trophies of his fight with that fiend in both hands. She could see that he was holding a sharp thing that looked like a claw in one hand. In his other hand, he was holding a small patch of red fur. She didn’t know what it was used for.
Ruan Qiuqiu used her swollen red hands to try to pry open Mr. Gray Wolf’s somewhat deathly pale hands. She tried several times, but the wolf was clutching those items too tightly.
On one hand, she was relieved that Mr. Gray Wolf still had so much strength even though he was unconscious. On the other hand, this was problematic.
