Chapter 94 – Realizing that she had misunderstandings about Mr. Gray Wolf (1)
The little kid vigorously shook his head. “I was careless. It’s not big sister Qiuqiu’s fault.”
Mo Yu squeezed the bone stick and looked at Ruan Qiuqiu. “Thank you for bringing me home yesterday, big sister Qiuqiu.”
Ruan Qiuqiu smiled. “I was too careless. I covered you with the animal skin that my husband used. Wouldn’t it be too outrageous of me if I didn’t send you home after you fainted from my carelessness?”
At the mention of Yuan Jue, Mo Yu’s expression changed a bit. Somewhat scared, he hesitated to speak. “Big sister Qiuqiu…”
Ruan Qiuqiu knew that he wanted to ask her why she was unaffected by the curse, but it was too complicated to explain, so she skipped the topic. She straightened up and interrupted him, “Alright, Little Yu, it’s not early anymore. Take me to find herbs, okay?”
Mo Yu was very smart and didn’t continue to ask. He nodded without hesitation. He didn’t forget that the purpose of coming over here today was to go find herbs with Ruan Qiuqiu.
The two of them left the vicinity of Mr. Gray Wolf’s cave and headed towards the forest.
Mo Yu walked in the front, and Ruan Qiuqiu followed behind him while holding her spear. She was alert for the potential appearance of prey. After several minutes of walking, she almost couldn’t see Mr. Gray Wolf’s cave anymore. They were well past the border of the forest and were in the depths of the forest.
They were icicles hanging from the surrounding giant trees, and many branches had broken off from the trees from the weight of the accumulated snow.
The further they went in, the quieter it got. Ruan Qiuqiu did her best to lighten her footsteps, but little Mo Yu didn’t seem worried that a beast might suddenly lunge out to attack them.
Seeing his confident steps, Ruan Qiuqiu asked, “Little Yu, are you not worried about wild beasts rushing out and attacking us?”
Mo Yu scratched his head and smiled at her. “Big sister Qiuqiu, the area within fifteen minutes walk of your cave… it’s all part of your husband’s territory! Large animals that have lived near here for a long time generally won’t approach here.”
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…”
She actually had no idea that Mr. Gray Wolf was that powerful.
Realizing that she had misunderstandings about Mr. Gray Wolf, Ruan Qiuqiu asked Mo Yu questions about Mr. Gray Wolf and the Fire Wolf Tribe as she followed after him.
Mo Yu answered her questions in full, “There are over 400 hundred wolf demons and over 100 humans in the Fire Wolf Tribe. The former chief came to our tribe over a decade ago. I think the chief before him is the current shaman’s older brother.”
Hearing this, Ruan Qiuqiu was even more curious about Mr. Gray Wolf. Since he had only come here over a decade ago, where was he before that? Also, she still didn’t know Mr. Gray Wolf’s name or age.
Mo Yu continued to speak, “The wolf demons in the tribe usually patrol the tribe’s territory and hunt. The humans have a gathering team. They’ll follow the wolf demons to pick fruit when the weather is good or help out with doing miscellaneous tasks within the tribe.”
Mo Yu was indignant when he mentioned the gathering team. “I’m already 10, but they won’t allow me to join the gathering team and there was very little food distributed to us this winter. If older brother wasn’t lucky in catching a small rabbit…”
Mo Yu trailed off once he remembered that Ruan Qiuqiu hadn’t entered the gathering team either. He hastily said, “Big sister Qiuqiu, that gathering team isn’t that good. There is nothing to regret if you can’t join.”
Ruan Qiuqiu smiled and shook her head. “It’s okay.”
She and Mr. Gray Wolf weren’t welcomed by the Fire Wolf Tribe. It was normal that humans wouldn’t invite her to join the gathering team.
Ruan Qiuqiu glanced at Little Mo Yu in surprise. “You’re already 10?”
Seeing how thin and small he was, she had though he was only 7 or 8.
“I’m already an adult!” Mo Yu saw that she wasn’t upset about the gathering team matter and sighed in relief. “Little Bohe is already 7!”
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…” What? Little Bohe was already seven? She thought she was only 5.
Mo Yu saw her shocked expression and asked, “Big sister Qiuqiu, guess my older brother’s age.”
Ruan Qiuqiu hesitantly said, “13?”
Mo Yu: “… Older brother is 15.”
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…”
Translator Ramblings: It would be strange if Ruan Qiuqiu ask Mo Yu for Mr. Gray Wolf’s name after she said she’s been intimate with him many times, but it’s baffling why she still hasn’t asked him for his name, even with him falling unconscious a lot. What an odd choice by the author. Readers on JJWXC (the Chinese publisher site) commented about this, so its not because it hasn’t occurred to the author.
