Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 236
[This…Madam Host, I don’t know. But, you should, probably, be. Madam Host, it’s already the middle of the night. Why did you think of such a question?] BaoBao shook his head, as if he wasn’t fully awake yet. He really didn’t want to respond to this question.
XunMi smoothed out her hair without responding. She put on her shoes and walked out through the cave opening. The light coming from the slowly rising sun shone through, slowly gifting light to the entire land.
The path ahead was filled with pitch black, tall plants. She could vaguely make out the large trees ahead and occasionally hear the sound of insects and birds. There was also the sound of frogs. In this early moment of dawn, there was a distinctive melody.
Wearing a white gown, the light and the cold of the brisk morning air spilled onto her, making her appear as if she was floating.
Yuan He stood below and watched, frozen. A sudden sense of frantic panic rose in his heart. He didn’t like this feeling as if she could leave him in the very next moment. Transforming into a wolf, he quickly ran over. His large tail picked XunMi up and placed her atop his back, securing her tightly.
XunMi was busy thinking when she felt a fluffy sensation near her legs and a new weight around her waist. Looking down, she made contact with a pair of green amidst pitch-black pupils, almost giving her a heart attack. Luckily, she was able to distinguish this figure as her dear husband. Myths said that wolves’ eyes were green at night. This was the first time she carefully observed her husband at night. The myths were right.
“Yuan He, what are you doing here?” Sitting on her husband’s back, she played with his large tail.
Yuan He nudged XunMi’s leg with his snout.
“You saw me standing here and was worried?” XunMi rubbed the silver wolf’s large head and smiled.
The wolf nodded and nudged his head again on XunMi’s lap, this time leaving it there. Some might have thought that this wolf was playing cute. But the drool landing on her leg told XunMi that this fellow was eating her tofu again. Old habits really do die hard. No matter what personality he adopted or whether he remembered his memories or not, he had never forgotten how to benefit himself.
She pushed his head away and saw him immediately raise his head to look at her, as if asking what was wrong.
XunMi frowned. #WhatDoIDoMyHusbandIsTooShameless#
“What are you doing here so early?” She’ll overlook his behavior for now.
The silver wolf waved his tail at the area below them, hinting to XunMi to look. XunMi followed his direction and understood what he wanted to say. Beastmen were taking turns watching over the animals they had brought home yesterday. En, this was a good sign.
Her mission was making good progress. She only needed to make sure the female lead won’t suddenly go rogue in the future.
But more importantly, she needed to first change her dwelling. This cave was a bit inconvenient. Their high placements were mainly to counter an attack from wild beasts. But even amidst an attack, they would still need to go down to grab food and other equipments.
The beastmen didn’t understand strategizing for fights. When they encountered an attack from wild beasts, they often fought ferociously but recklessly. They fight back for as long as they could and evade when they could. However, they still needed to eat to regain energy. It was ineffective to be up atop the mountains. As soon as the stock of food was exhausted, what were they going to do?
“Yuan He, let’s change to a different dwelling. Like those tents that you guys built below.” XunMi pointed at the shed where the gege beasts were held.They had built two layers for the beasts. The top layer contained the herbs and grass that the females had gathered from the back of the mountain. XunMi was truly impressed with whoever thought of this addition.
Yuan He looked down at the sheds and then thought about the cave that Mi was in. Wooden sheds? How could they build it so that it wouldn’t be destroyed by winds and rain? They had already thought of this problem before. Ontop of the roof, they would place large tree leaves and attach sturdy reeds.
But this was a temporary situation. After the rain season, a few trees begin secreting a type of glue that could be used. They could place glue in the gaps of the wooden boards to make it more secure.
XunMi knew Yuan He was considering her suggestion. She adjusted her position and leaned her entire weight onto Yuan He’s back.
This was obviously a beast tribe. They often transformed into beast form to go hunting. But the fur below felt so smooth a clean. Lying on the fur made XunMi feel as if the world was full of hope and light.
The truth was that Yuan He realized how much XunMi adored his beast form. He took on the habit of washing more than usual to keep the texture of his fur. That way his XunMi would be focused on him and won’t have the time to think about others.
Yuan He quietly laid down, enjoying the warmth of the pressure on his back. His wolf eyes were filled with happiness. He wanted, more than anything, to have her lean on him like this forever.
When the morning light was at its brightest, the entire tribe began to awaken.
Sleeping soundly, XunMi suddenly felt as if she was moving. But the ground around her was too soft. She didn’t want to wake up, so she went back to sleep.
When Mu Yan carried Gu Li out, Gu Li was still blinking away the sleep in her eyes, just like XunMi.
“Eh, where’s XunMi? Why don’t I see her?” Gu Li finally fully awoke thirty minutes later. She had seen the large silver wolf lying underneath a tree. She knew this was the junior chief leader Yuan He. But why wasn’t XunMi with him today? That’s illogical.
Mu Yan helped Gu Li peel a red berry before pointing to Yuan He’s back. Gu Li blinked and squinted but couldn’t see anything. Wait-there was something bumpy on his back.
My god! That’s a person. Moreover, a person in a white dress. Eh, she knew there was no way Yuan He would be here without XunMi.
But was it really a good idea to be spreading dog food so early in the morning? She really wasn’t hungry, really.
