Chapter 82 – So she was testing how good his tail was at keeping something warm? (2)
When the big egg was placed next to Mr. Gray Wolf’s big, furry tail, it looked rather petite in comparison. Ruan Qiuqiu lifted up Mr. Gray Wolf’s tail and carefully placed it over the egg.
The long silvery-gray fur rested on the round egg, but because the egg was too smooth, the big tail slipped off.
Ruan Qiuqiu couldn’t stop the giggle from coming out.
Ruan Qiuqiu tried a few more times, but her attempt at pretending to use Mr. Gray Wolf’s tail to incubate the egg failed. In the end, she settled for the next best thing by wrapping Mr. Gray Wolf’s tail around the egg. She tried to curl the tip of the tail to the middle of the tail to make a makeshift nest around the egg.
However, although Mr. Gray Wolf’s tail was fairly soft, it wouldn’t curve that much. And so, she settled with curving the tail a little bit and put the egg in the middle.
Yup. That works.
Ruan Qiuqiu was still thinking if she could play the wolf’s tail more to make a better nest, but she heard a muffled sound. It was a hoarse sound with a trace of confusion and a slight gasp at the end. In the cold air, it burrowed into Ruan Qiuqiu’s ears.
She instinctively loosened her grip on Mr. Gray Wolf’s tail. Her heart beat faster. Perhaps, that was due to a guilty conscience.
“… H-Husband?” Ruan Qiuqiu tentatively called out with a red face.
Having been forcibly awakened by a strange sensation, Yuan Jue felt something weird on his tail and heard Ruan Qiuqiu calling out to him.
Although he didn’t know why her voice sounded guilty… She had come back. She didn’t leave him.
A strange feeling suddenly fluttered in his heart. It was like eating honey from the Winter Bear Tribe, sticky and soft.
Although his body still hurt and the fiend energy in his body hasn’t dispersed, Yuan Jue felt completely different from before. He didn’t open his eyes and restrained that soft feeling in his heart. He gulped and seriously thought about how to respond to her.
Would it be too cold to reply with “en”? If he called her wife, would she be unhappy? Her heart had gray wolf Tianluo. Would he scare her if he called her Qiuqiu? Speaking of which, did his little human wife know that he knows her name?
Yuan Jue was extremely nervous, even his ears were trembling. His slender fingers dug into the holes in the animal skin. Ten seconds passed, and he still couldn’t say a word.
Ruan Qiuqiu actually felt relieved when she didn’t get a response from Mr. Gray Wolf.
It was easier to get along with Mr. Gray Wolf when he was pretending to be unconscious. She didn’t know what to say to him when he was awake.
Seeing Mr. Gray Wolf’s fluttering eyelashes, as if he was about to speak, Ruan Qiuqiu hurriedly said, “Umm… Husband, I… I’m going to go take a bath.”
She felt even more awkward after saying that. She hastily tried to remedy her words. In a shaky voice, she said, “Don’t worry. I… I’m just taking a bath. I don’t mean anything by it.”
Ah! What was she saying?!
Ruan Qiuqiu wanted to dig a hole and hide in it. Seeing that Mr. Gray Wolf’s eyelashes were shaking even more, she gave up on explaining.
Never mind. Too late. Surrendering to her fate, she said, “I’m going out.”
She left the bedroom with animal skin clothing and hot water. She forgot about the egg she had placed on the wolf’s tail.
As for Yuan Jue, his face felt increasingly hot.
He felt a bit dizzy. Ruan Qiuqiu’s recent words kept echoing in his head.
Take a bath…
As he recalled what he had seen before – Ruan Qiuqiu’s fair skin, her lovely neck – Yuan Jue inexplicably felt hot.
Was his wife hinting at something? But, didn’t she like gray wolf Tianluo and was using him as a substitute? Oh right, was that why she was feeling guilty? Because of gray wolf Tianluo? Did she like that wolf that much?
In that case, he wouldn’t do anything to her. He hadn’t wanted to do anything to her to begin with.
Yuan Jue’s eyes were faintly stained with red.
