Chapter 72 – But didn’t you say that you’ve been intimate with your husband several times? (1)
Ruan Qiuqiu had spoken quietly in order to avoid disturbing Mr. Gray Wolf, who might still be resting in the bedroom.
However, her quiet voice was no match for Mr. Gray Wolf, who had perked up his ears to eavesdrop.
The words, “This is my husband and I’s home”, “little kid”, “hide out from the snow” were all clearly heard by him.
His wife’s soft and gentle voice didn’t sound forced at all. It seemed that she really was willing to tell outsiders that this was their home.
Home. This word felt both strange and familiar. It was a precious thing that he had never possessed before. He couldn’t put into words what he was feeling right now, but the inexplicable grievance and pain he had been feeling scattered like haze underneath the sunlight.
He slowly came back to himself. Even the fur on his big tail, which had bristled after he had smelled the scent of a human male, returned to normal.
Now that he was clear-headed, he realized that he had torn up the animal skin that his wife had sewed up. He quietly turned his claws back into nails and covered up the ten holes with his big hands.
Enduring the pain, he kept his ears perked up to listen to conversation outside.
After Ruan Qiuqiu said those words to the thin, little boy, she saw his expression becoming very nervous. She smiled and said, “Our home is very big. You can just stay at the entrance to hide from the snow. You don’t have to see my husband.”
It was very obvious that Mo Yu relaxed when he heard that he didn’t have to see Yuan Jue. He looked Ruan Qiuqiu in the eye. His slightly mature-looking face showed the awkwardness and childishness that was more appropriate for his age.
Mo Yu’s hand, which was holding the bone stick, trembled a bit. And then, he rather bravely walked to the cave’s entrance with shaking hands. “I… I’m not scared of y-your husband. It’s not like the former chief would suddenly start eating children.”
Hearing the voice of a child, Yuan Jue’s residual vexed feelings finally went away. The furry ear that was injured softly drooped down and only one ear remained perked up.
Ruan Qiuqiu enigmatically smiled at Mo Yu and teased him, “You’re really not scared?”
Mo Yu scratched his head in embarrassment and patted the snow off his body. “I’m not scared.”
Mo Yu hesitated for a moment and looked into the dark cave at the animal skin curtain covering the bedroom’s entrance. He gritted his teeth and said, “I used to be very scared of him… But didn’t you say that you’ve been intimate with your husband several times?”
Ruan Qiuqiu didn’t know why this anxious kid would suddenly say these words.
Looking very serious, he analyzed, “Since you’re okay even after being intimate with him, I probably should be okay too.”
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…”
The eavesdropping Yuan Jue: “…?!”
He was overcome with shock. Heat rushed to his cheeks and quickly spread to the tips of his ears and then to his neck. It felt as if all the fur on his body was burning.
D-Did he hear that wrong? Why did that human boy say those words? It couldn’t be that Ruan Qiuqiu had told him that, right?
But how come he didn’t remember being intimate with his wife?
It couldn’t be that… he had done something beastly to his wife when he was unconscious?
Yuan Jue fell into chaos. He desperately tried to recall what happened during the past few days when he was unconscious.
Could it be that… he had bitten her?
He knew that Ruan Qiuqiu smelled very fragrant and she was so soft too. She looked so delicious. She was the favorite type of food for fiends and demons that had gone crazy.
But if he had bitten her, why didn’t he have any impression of that?
Even if he had been in half-demon form and his teeth were sharp, he should feel something if he bit her…
Unless, she meant that he had groped her. But, he had always controlled his sleeping posture. Other than the first time, when he had deliberately fallen on top of her, he had never crossed the line…
Recalling the first time they met and the softness he had accidentally touched, Yuan Jue blushed to the point that it looked as if blood was going to drip down in the next second.
If he had really groped her and several times at that, it was impossible that he would have no impression of that…
But if that was true, why would Ruan Qiuqiu say that then?
Yuan Jue was so perplexed. His head felt dizzy as his imagination ran wild.
