Chapter 66 – My husband and I have been intimate several times (3)
Xie Yu’s face was extremely ugly after he heard Ruan Qiuqiu’s words. He wanted to rush forward and rip apart this human, but she had accurately poked his weak spot.
He didn’t dare to get too close to her. Even with the distance separating them, he could smell the former chief’s scent on Ruan Qiuqiu. She might already bear the same curse as that wolf now.
In addition, there was the faint smell of a fiend on her body.
Thinking of how not even a blade of grass grew near Yuan Jue’s former cave, Xie Yu didn’t dare to gamble.
He had been biding his time for so long to become the strongest fighter in the tribe’s younger generation. That gray wolf, who was over a decade younger than him, was now handicapped. There was no reason to take a risk to attack a woman that had no appreciation of the gravity of things, but he couldn’t just let things go.
Xie Yu dryly laughed. Blue veins were angrily protruding on his face and his arms. As he darkly looked at Ruan Qiuqiu, he caught a glimpse of the spear on the side of her oddly-shaped backpack. The animal skin on top was half opened, revealing the sharp claw of a fiend.
Shocked, Xie Yu’s expression immediately changed.
That sharp claw clearly came from a level 3 fiend. A level 3 fiend had strength that was similar to his. It wasn’t an opponent that Ruan Qiuqiu, an ordinary human, would be able to beat.
Could it be… Was it Yuan Jue? That wolf had clearly already been injured that badly. Could he still have such a strong fighting strength?
If what Ruan Qiuqiu said was true, that wolf liked her a lot. If he attacked Ruan Qiuqiu, would Yuan Jue get revenge for her even if it ended in mutual destruction?
Xie Yu’s emotions were very complicated. He wanted to stop here, but with so many wolf demons watching, he couldn’t just back off.
Ruan Qiuqiu’s heart was beating very quickly. She carefully observed the wolf demon’s expression. She knew that her gamble had paid off when she saw that the wolf demon looked a bit like he was cowering despite being furious.
However, Xie Yu’s expression looked undecided. Ruan Qiuqiu instinctively wanted to take the spear out of her backpack. Planning for the worst outcome, she prepared to fight.
Her palm was too sweaty, and she didn’t grab the spear firmly enough. It slipped out of her hands and plopped onto the snow. Only the animal skin was left in her grasp.
Ruan Qiuqiu immediately became nervous, but kept that feeling hidden. She looked at the demons and saw that they… were more nervous than her?
Ruan Qiuqiu carefully checked their expressions and body language. She was right. The moment that the fiend’s claw had fallen out, it wasn’t just Xie Yu’s expression that got uglier, the other wolf demons’ expressions instantly became twisted.
The young wolf demon, Ning Yue, couldn’t even say a word. He looked at Ruan Qiuqiu as if he was looking at something extremely dangerous and threatening.
Ning Yue didn’t know why in the short span of a week, the previously quiet and seemingly extremely weak human they had brought back from the Wind Lion Tribe would become like this.
Ruan Qiuqiu vaguely realized something. She clenched the animal skin and tentatively took a step forward.
Smelling the strong scent of Yuan Jue on the human’s body, Xie Yu instinctively took a step back. It wasn’t just Xie Yu. Almost all of the wolf demons near her retreated too.
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…”
As it turned out, the idea that the gray wolf was abnormal was this deeply entrenched in the Fire Wolf Tribe?
Not only did Ruan Qiuqiu not feel happy when she realized this, she felt a bit bitter. With him being feared by so many demons, he probably didn’t have any friends before she married over here.
Ning Yue, who was hiding behind Xie Yu, bared his teeth and growled out to Ruan Qiuqiu, “We male demons won’t bother quibbling with a woman.”
His words gave Xie Yu a way to step down.
Xie Yu coldly looked at Ruan Qiuqiu. This woman had already contracted such a serious curse and would probably be dying soon. There was no need for him to get angry over a soon to be dead person’s words.
Once that thought occurred to him, Xie Yu was able to recover his gentle and oily smile. Looking at Ruan Qiuqiu, he said, “Right, we’re male demons. We won’t quibble with a woman.”
After saying these words, he turned around and left with the foul-mouthed Ning Yue following after him.
