Chapter 12 The injured beastman
The next day, the beastmen began their preparation to depart.
Lin Mu stuffed some fruit and a bottle filled with water into his backpack. He raised it and felt that the weight is okay and not very heavy. Then, he looked at his slightly muscular arm; he exercised quite a bit after he arrived in this beastman world.
Patrik bundled his stuff and Lin Mu’s luggage together, the pile was not small. Lin Mu has saved a lot of things recently.
Seeing the considerable amount of stuff that Patrik has packed, Lin Mu said, “It seems a bit too much.”
He frowned and reluctantly wondered what he could take down. These were food that he had recently collected in the forest, and he does want to keep them.
Looking at Lin Mu’s frown, Patrik naturally knew what he was thinking. He smiled and said, “These are nothing to me.”
Thinking about the size of Patrik’s beast form after he transformed, and then looking at these things in front of him, Lin Mu felt that it is really nothing to Patrik.
Having nothing else to say, Lin Mu doesn’t dare to look at Patrik when he saw Patrik smiling softly at him. He sighed in his heart that the atmosphere just now was clearly harmonious, how did it become ambiguous all of a sudden?
“Uh, I am going to get Qiuqiu.”
Lin Mu ran away after he said that. In his heart, he scolded for being spineless. Ain’t it just being chased by a man? But he still felt like running away; looking down at himself right now!
Patrik looked at Lin Mu running away with a blushing face, but he was not angry. It always has been difficult in Beastman’s path to pursue a female. And a female’s restraint is scary to the beastmen.
Lin Mu looked at Qiuqiu laying next to Casso. It actually refused to go with him, such a thing with no conscience.

When they were about to depart, Patrik found Lin Mu looking very dissatisfied. He then shifted his eyes at Qiuqiu, which was still laying on top of Casso, and immediately understood. Qiuqiu has always been very close to Casso.
Because Matt was not there, Casso and Qiuqiu walked together with Misha, who sat on the back of Damon’s beast form and said in a sour tone, “Lin Mu, Qiuqiu likes to follow Casso. Just let it be then”. Why won’t Qiuqiu get close to him(M)? Misha has completely forgotten how he teased and pranked Qiuqiu.
Lin Mu supported his chin while lying on Patrik’s back. Without Qiuqiu for him to rub, Lin Mu felt bored. That hateful Casso, it actually snatched away his Qiuqiu. But then, when he thought of how Casso is often bullied by Qiuqiu, Lin Mu couldn’t help but think ‘Could it be Qiuqiu likes to be with Casso because Casso is the only one who can be bullied by Qiuqiu?’
“Patrik, don’t you think Qiuqiu is very smart?”
Patrik thought of Qiuqiu’s usual behaviour. “It is very smart.”
Lin Mu suddenly had a light bulb moment. “Do you think Qiuqiu is also a beastman?”
Patrik thought for a moment. He never sees Qiuqiu as a beastman because Qiuqiu’s animal type had no fighting power, and it is difficult for one to survive in a powerless beast form.
“I never see Qiuqiu as… um… beastman. However, I have never heard of any beastman whose form looked similar like Qiuqiu’s either.”
Indeed, Qiuqiu’s spherical body really has not much threatening and domineering aura, so that’s why Qiuqiu is his pet.
When evening comes, not waiting for the beastmen to descending signal, Lin Mu rushed Patrik to immediately go down.
“I couldn’t hold it anymore, hurry up.”
Patrik did as requested, and Lin Mu hurriedly climbed down from him before running to an obscure area in the woods.
“Don’t come over.” Lin Mu turned back and warned Patrik behind him.
Patrik stopped walking. “I will wait for you here.” Ever since that accident, Patrik has never let Lin Mu go out alone.
After solving his basic needs1, Lin Mu sighed comfortably. Holding it in really make one anxious. When he is about to leave the spot, Lin Mu suddenly heard a very low groan from the bushes in front of him. He can detect pain from that voice. Lin Mu picked up a branch and decided to check it out. He had such great courage probably because he knew Patrik was nearby. Looking at a tree that is blocking Patrik’s figure, Lin Mu felt that he has to man up. That unexpected night created a huge obstacle in his heart, which caused him to be afraid to be alone and make his lost his courage. Although he knew that Patrik would always be there to protect him, but Lin Mu is a man himself, and he didn’t want to be so weak.
He boosted himself in his heart and carefully brushed apart the bushes. Then Lin Mu saw a pair of eyes that have become round by fear. Lin Mu was surprised to see what he saw: a thin ‘female’2, who looked at Lin Mu in vigilance. He was holding onto a tall beastman who was lying on the floor. That beastman’s pale face and terrible wounds on his chest let Lin Mu know that his current situation is very bad now.
“What happened to him?” Lin Mu whispered, fearing that he would scare the nervous female.
Unexpectedly, because of his words, the thin female looked at the person in his arms with a sorrowful expression. He then shot a pleading look at Lin Mu, “I beg you, don’t let other people kill him? He is a good person, he became like this because of me, because of me.” He silently cried.
Lin Mu couldn’t handle it when other people cry, and he was very surprised towards why this person would request him that so he asked, “Why would I want to ask other people to kill him?”
Looking at that pair of wet eyes, he added, “No matter what, I won’t get other people to come and harm him.” He couldn’t help but questioned in his heart if this person saw him together with Patrik, so he was afraid that their drifter beastmen will kill his lover?
Phil was relieved when he heard that female standing in front of him promised. “Thank you.” He looked at Lloyd, who was already in a coma. “He is a good person, really, really good person.”
His voice was very light, but Lin Mu heard it very clearly.
“Why are you keep stressing that he is a good person?” Could it be….
“Because the person in his arms in a drifter beastman.”
Patrik’s sudden appearance frightened Phil. He pleaded Patrik. “I beg you, please don’t hurt him?”
Then he said to Lin Mu. “You promised me, you won’t let other people kill him.”
He thought that the beastman appeared with Lin Mu is from a tribe. Phil is very clear of how the beastmen from a tribe hated drifter beastmen, but Phil knew even more how much a female weighed in a beastman’s heart. Not to mention how beautiful this female in front of him looked, so he turned to beg Li Mu.
“Don’t let him hurt Lloyd, please? I’m begging you.”
Lloyd seemed to sense the dangerous atmosphere, and was trying to wake up but unable to do so.
Lin Mu looked at the sad and scared person in front of him and quickly comforted him, “Don’t worry, Patrik won’t hurt Lloyd.” As he said, he signalled to Patrik with his eyes so that Patrik will give his confirmation.
Patrik looked at the weak beastman on the ground. A drifter beastman who can make a female desperately tried to defend him, this beastman called Lloyd is not an easy person. Patrik looked at Lin Mu, who was desperately trying to signal him with his eyes and wondered if this was him, will Lin Mu desperately defend him like this female did? But then he felt that this assumption is really terrible because he will never let Lin Mu be in this unsafe state.
Phil nervously looked at the beastman who didn’t say anything and held tightly against Lloyd’s arm.
“He’s in a bad situation right now.”
Beastman who couldn’t wake up in an extremely dangerous situation (in the presence of a stranger and a powerful drifter beastman like Patrik) is in serious condition.
Phil didn’t think Patrik would say such a thing, and he relaxed a little. At least the other party did not immediately shout to kill them, indicating that there is hope.
Lin Mu crouched and put his hand on Lloyd’s head, this action made Patrik feel bad.
“He has a fever, and his wound may be inflamed.” Looked at the complicated herbs spread on the wound, “Are you a witch doctor?”
Phil heard Lin Mu said words like fever and inflammation. Although he couldn’t understand anything, Lin Mu’s knitted brow let him know that it is very serious and he heard Lin Mu’s question.
“I am not a witch doctor, but I went to collect herbs with the witch doctor in my tribe before, so I know some herbs.”
Looking at the beastman who was lowly groaning but still in a coma, Lin Mu said, “He has to be treated quickly.”
Then he turned to look at Patrik. Although Patrik was very dissatisfied with Lin Mu’s concern for other beastman, he nodded to acknowledge it. Lin Mu gave Patrik a big smile, then turned to Phil and said, “I might be able to help him.”
“Really?!” Phil was really surprised. He looked at Lin Mu with gratitude.
Lin Mu smiled at him and bowed his head to see Lloyd’s injury. The wound has a rotten stench and has begun to produce pus. Lin Mu endured and said, “His wounds need to be cleaned up, and he lost too much blood. It would be nice if we have some salt here.”
“I have salt.” As Phil said that, he took out a small bag made from animal skin. “I don’t know if it’s enough.”
Lin Mu was pleased to pick it up, it was about half a catty3. How long has it been since he last saw salt? As the saying goes ‘One day of absence is like 3 autumns(season)’, and he does not know how many autumns have passed by now.
“Patrik, help to move Lloyd out.” Next, he turned to the thin female, “My name is Lin Mu, what is your name?”
“My name is Phil.” Phil felt that this female is a very kind and good person.
“Phil, I think the herbs you put on Lloyd is used to stop bleeding. We need to gather more of this.”
Then he said to Patrik, “Boil some hot water after you placed Lloyd down in an open space.”
Patrik didn’t intend to let two females go out by themselves to collect the herbs. He sent a signal to the sky and soon, a beastman arrived.
“Coley, take care of this beastman and boil some water as well.”
The three of them quickly picked enough herbs, and they also took some herbs to reduce swelling and pain. Lin Mu asked Coley to grind the herbs. After that, he handed his knife to Patrik and ordered, “Cut off the rotten part and apply the herbs. Then wrap his wound with animal skin.”
Although Lin Mu has decided to help Lloyd, he doesn’t have enough courage to put a knife down on other people. After giving the instructions, Lin Mu pulled the worried Phil to the side of a pot. The hot water boiled in the big pot is used to handle Lloyd’s wounds, and some salt was added in the water. That caused Lin Mu’s heart to hurt, but thinking that the salt was someone’s belongings, he endured.
In the small pot, it was only half-filled as per Lin Mu’s instructions. He put in a lot of sweet fruit into the pot. Pulling at Phil, who couldn’t help checking the other side, Lin Mu said, “There is nothing to look at, don’t look.”
After that, he gave Phil a sweet fruit to eat. “You probably didn’t eat much?”
Phil bit onto the fruit. Since Lloyd was injured, he didn’t eat much in the past few days.
“Oh, now that we have salt, you are lucky for lunch today.” Lin Mu decided to make a good meal, and he even gave himself a good reason, that is Phil and Lloyd needs some nutrient to replenish their body.
Patrik quickly handled Lloyd’s wounds, and the syrup Lin Mu cooked is also done. He gave Lloyd a big bowl after added some salt to the soup, and gave Phil a bowl as well.
Phil carefully fed Lloyd with a spoon and watched him take a sip of hot soup, he couldn’t help but shed tears.
“Lin Mu, thank you.”
Lin Mu smiled in embarrassment. “It’s nothing.”
Lin Mu didn’t dare to make a big meal because the salt was not much, but he was satisfied because he finally gets to eat the meal he dreamed of for so long. Phil is also convinced by Lin Mu because he can make such a delicious thing, and also create pots, bowls and convenient things like spoon. That makes Phil deeply admired Lin Mu.
Lloyd was fed with some chicken soup. After the meal, Lin Mu gave him some quick-acting medicine (from his world). Calculating the time needed for the drug to show effect, Lin Mu thinks Lloyd should get better soon.
