Extra 1 Part A Qiuqiu and Casso (PS: This is not chapter 42)
Qiuqiu knows that he is round, fluffy, very cute, and is the best choice for a pet. In Qiuqiu’s mind, he fantasized how good it is to be someone’s pet! To have someone to feed him, love him, and also play together with him, what a good deal. So, Qiuqiu decided to find a feeder for himself, and of course, his first choice is a female. This was Qiuqiu’s goal when he left the Mist Forest.
The Mist Forest is one of the most peculiar places on the beastman continent. It is said no beastman ever came back out from the forest after entering, so the Mist Forest is a mysterious place in the hearts of many beastman.
As far as Qiuqiu could remember, he had already lived in the Mist Forest when he had memories. He ran around in the forest every day, but he had never seen his own kind, nor had he ever seen a beast that could be called his parents.
Qiuqiu has a best friend named Songsong, a giant chipmunk. Songsong likes to eat pinecone. Although Songsong’s father, the old chipmunk often scolded Songsong for being a glutton, Qiuqiu can see that the old chipmunk loves Songsong very much. This makes Qiuqiu envious, but he couldn’t find his parents to care for him.
Songsong: “I heard Dad said that he has never seen a beast like you before in the Mist Forest. You seem to just appear all of a sudden.”
Qiuqiu was depressed because he couldn’t find out anything about his parents. However, the Mist Forest is very beautiful, and there are many animals of his size that can be his friend. Qiuqiu’s life is actually very happy. It’s just that Qiuqiu will miss his parents when he is sleeping at night, thinking that if they are by his side, then Qiuqiu will have someone to care and love him as well.
The urge to search for his mother and father has been hidden in Qiuqiu’s heart, so Qiuqiu’s favourite thing to do every day is to run around in the Mist Forest. Although Qiuqiu told Songsong that he was just exploring and playing around, he actually wanted to find his parents or even his own kind. Just like Songsong has a lot of beasts that looked like him, like those little children?
But the Mist Forest is too big. When Qiuqiu was 3 years old, he still couldn’t find the edge of the Mist Forest. Apart from that, the old chipmunk told Qiuqiu that there are many dangerous places in the Mist Forest. So, if he wants to find his parents, he can try to ask the fox.
The fox’s cave is not very far from where the chipmunks live. The fox is bluish-black in colour and was in an aging stage, so the fox decided to spend the rest of his life in a cave located in the center of the Mist Forest. This is what Qiuqiu could think of because he thinks powerful beasts only come to live in the forest when they get older. From what he heard from the chipmunks, this fox was quite powerful and had been to many places in the Mist Forest. Qiuqiu listened to the old chipmunk’s suggestion, and originally wanted to take Songsong with him, but Songsong was too afraid of the fox, so Qiuqiu had to go by himself.
At the risk of being eaten, Qiuqiu asked the big fox for advice. Fortunately, the fox seemed to be already full when he went to see the fox, lying lazily in the sun. Actually, Qiuqiu thinks that the real reason why the fox didn’t eat him was not only because he(F) was full, but also because he(QQ) was too small; not enough stuff his(F) teeth. That’s why he managed to escape the tragic fate of being ration.
Qiuqiu has a deep impression of that day. He remembered that when he cautiously came to the fox’s cave, he saw a big fox lying in front of the cave, and yawned lazily at him. However, the fox suddenly pounced at the next moment and pressed Qiuqiu under his paws. When Qiuqiu thought that he is going to die, he lamented his bad luck, and regretted that he still hasn’t found his parents yet, he realized that the fox didn’t do anything further; just pressing him(QQ) under his paws, and continued to lie down to sunbathe.
This fox is called Kanos, and he is the only non-white fox in the Mist Forest. Because the colour of his coat is different from other foxes, he is shunned by them. However, as Kanos grew up, his strength was significantly powerful than other foxes. He explored the Mist Forest and fought with other beasts, which made Kanus felt very interesting. But as time went by, it became more and more boring for Kanos. Although the Mist Forest is large, as if no one could ever touch the border, in Kanos’ eyes it was just a boring scenery. He started thinking to leave the Mist Forest, he wanted to see the scenery outside.
All the animals in the forest know that that bluish-black fox left the Mist Forest. They think that Kanos is very powerful because he is the only beast who managed to get out of the Mist Forest. For some reason, many animals couldn’t get near to the edge of the Mist Forest, so they couldn’t leave.
Kanos’s return was as sudden as his departure. It was 10 years later, Kanos appeared again in the forest. To everyone’s surprise, Kanos came back with a body full of wounds. Even the powerful Kanos was injured in the outside world, it made the beasts in the forest even less desire to go out. Kanos stopped running around in the forest to find other beasts to fight like he used to. He became very quiet and liked to laze in the sun.
In Qiuqiu’s mind, he had imagined countless ways for Kanos to eat him. Just when he was scared to death, Kanos yawned and asked lazily, “What do you little meatball want with me?” As he said that, he revealed his sharp fangs, “Are you sending yourself to my doorstep as food?”
The teeth glinted. It scared Qiuqiu, and he screamed, “No! I don’t want to be eaten, I just want to ask you something!”
Kanos put his head on his forelegs and looked at Qiuqiu, who was not even half as big as his own head. His voice was still lazy as he asked, “What do you want to ask me?”
“Have you ever seen a beast like me?” Qiuqiu asked quietly. After all, he is still under the fox’s paws, and his life is not under his own control now.
Kanos’ eyes were half-open, “Like you…” He loosened his paws and took a closer look at Qiuqiu’s figure. “Hmm, I have seen small and roundish beast similar to your size, but I have never seen one that looked like you.”
Kanos’ words made Qiuqiu very disappointed and agitated.
“Why not?! Aren’t you the most knowledgeable beast here? Aren’t you the only beast that can leave the Mist Forest? How is it that you never have seen a beast like me before?!”
Kanos lifted his paw and flicked Qiuqiu away. “I’ve been to many places in the forest and outside the forest, but I indeed have never seen a beast like you.” As he said that, he revealed his sharp fangs again.
Qiuqiu flinched and ran away.
Kanos watched as Qiuqiu ran away, and muttered, “Outside is not good anyway.” He looked at the distance, and his gaze was lonely. Then, Kanos swiftly returned to his lazy state and rested his head on his front paws to continue sunbathing.
Not able to obtain information about his parents, Qiuqiu was very depressed, so he wandered aimlessly in the forest. And this is the day where Qiuqiu met a special person. After that, he came to know about his own background and made a special decision — He is leaving the Mist Forest. He managed to know more about himself, and he listened to that man telling him how charming and colourful is the world outside the forest in a tempting tone. Qiuqiu decided to fulfil the responsibilities that that person told him. It was not difficult anyway, plus he also get to check out the outside world that he has been curious at, Qiuqiu feels nothing’s wrong with his decision.
After saying goodbye to his best friend Songsong, Qiuqiu was sent out of the forest by that person. The different scenery outside the forest made Qiuqiu delighted. He happily ran around the entrance of Mist Forest to express his excitement. But after he calmed down, Qiuqiu began to worry – Where should he go?
Qiuqiu: “According to that strange person, females like cute animals, and females are precious. It is best to be their pet. Hehe, how good is it to have someone to feed me and play with me.” And so, Qiuqiu’s goal is to find a female to be his owner, and then live a good life.
Although Qiuqiu’s ideas were good, the difficult part is that the females in this world are so rare that they do not leave their tribe at all. Not able to find any tribes nearby, Qiuqiu ran around like a headless fly. Compared with those beasts with wings, Qiuqiu, who can only rely on his four short stubby legs, it was very hard for him to travel around. Other than that, he also has to avoid being captured by those carnivorous animals. Although he really doesn’t have much meat on himself, Qiuqiu doesn’t want to be the meat in other beast’s teeth.
Because he still hasn’t found any tribe after a long time, Qiuqiu lost his patience. He decided not to look for any females, and he was too lazy to walk. In the forest, he found a small abandoned nest. He doesn’t know what kind of animals lived there before, but Qiuqiu decided to settle there.
In an unfamiliar forest, with no friends around, also the food is unfamiliar as well. He saw a lot of foods that were not seen in the Mist Forest before, but many foods in the Mist Forest cannot be found here too. These make Qiuqiu miss the days he lived in the Mist Forest. Qiuqiu laid in his nest at night, looking out at the black sky outside the hole, and began to feel homesick. He missed Songsong, he missed the old chipmunk uncle, he missed the flowers and fruits in the Mist Forest…
Just when Qiuqiu is feeling sad for himself, a sudden drop of water carried by the wind fell on the tip of his nose.
“It’s raining?” Qiuqiu felt even sadder.
“What amazing beastman continent? What owner who is good at cooking? Lies! Wu wu wu… Songsong, I was deceived…”
After the rain.
Qiuqiu came to the river to drink water, and he looked at his reflection in the water, “I’m still very cute. It’s a pity that I couldn’t find an owner.” Qiuqiu held his face with both paws, continued, “So cute, what a pity.” The idea of finding a feeder for himself has always been in Qiuqiu’s heart.
The day when he met Lin Mu, Qiuqiu has just found a piece of mushroom. The delicious mushroom made Qiuqiu very happy. But then he sensed a dangerous aura approaching him, causing him to hide away subconsciously. This aura was stronger than any beasts he has ever meet, but then it gave off a slightly different feeling from those carnivorous beasts (Author note – Still remember the scene where Patrik caught Qiuqiu? The aura Qiuqiu mentioned was intentionally released by Patrik so that other beasts can’t get close to them).
Qiuqiu stayed still while hiding in the grass, and then he saw two people approaching. He quietly looked at the two people and secretly thought ‘These two people looked like that ‘strange man’. Especially the shorter one.” Qiuqiu decided to eavesdrop.
“Patrik, the air here is so fresh, feels very comfortable to take a deep breath. Unlike my place, there is a hint of bad smell in the air.”
“Ai, I still haven’t found the vegetable I want. It’s not early anymore, let’s pick some fruits and go back. What do you think?”
Qiuqiu does not know why he was found, he felt extremely uneasy being caught in Patrik’s hand, whose aura is pressing on him. He struggled desperately but couldn’t get away, which made him yelped in fright. At the next second, he was sent to another person’s arms. This person’s aura is soft, making Qiuqiu feel comfortable and at ease. Listening to this person praising his cuteness, and said he(LM) likes his appearance, Qiuqiu generously decided to let this female called Lin Mu be his owner. Although Lin Mu named him Qiuqiu, which he found was unpleasant, but this name was much better than others, hence he reluctantly accepted it.
Qiuqiu was very happy with his new owner, so he decided to give him some gifts. Thinking of the delicious mushrooms he just discovered, Qiuqiu generously decided to share it. As expected, his owner liked his gift very much, making Qiuqiu feel proud.
When he was carried back to the beastman team by Lin Mu, Qiuqiu discovered that there were many others like them. He thinks that these people are of the same kind, and he felt that it is really good for everyone to live together like this. Just like the chipmunk family in the Mist Forest, many beasts living together felt very lively.
Qiuqiu really hated Casso when he first saw Casso. You ask why? Very simple, Casso is also very cute.
Qiuqiu knows that he himself is small, round, fluffy and, very cute. But Casso is also fat, fluffy, and silly, plus he is small as well. ‘That person’ said it before that females like this kind of fluffy and cute animal the most. The proof is his owner likes to rub Casso’s head whenever he saw him, his owner thinks Casso is cute. So in Qiuqiu’s heart, Casso will compete for affection with him, causing his owner to not like him(QQ) as much. That’s why Casso is the most annoying beast.
Chewing the grilled meat in his mouth, Qiuqiu couldn’t help sighing that it is really delicious. That man was right, this owner can provide him with delicious food indeed. It’s just that this stupid wolf is too annoying for eating so much. Qiuqiu decided in his heart to snatch Casso’s food.
But how can the greedy Casso tolerate other beast snatching his food? Although Casso knew that Qiuqiu is Lin Mu’s pet, he doesn’t concern himself with this tiny beast at the size of his head. When Qiuqiu wants to snatch his food, he will push Qiuqiu away with his head. But who is Qiuqiu, he is the beast that came out of the Mist Forest. Being pushed away is nothing, how could he give up? So Qiuqiu continued to rush forward to snatch Casso’s food.
Casso became impatient. “Of all the people here, why do you insist on snatching mine?”
“Because I disliked you. Who ask you to be so cute when you are obviously a wolf ?” Qiuqiu replied in his heart. In Qiuqiu’s mind, wolves are powerful animals, unlike this little thing in front of him now. Qiuqiu continued his snatching attempt until Lin Mu picked him up with a smile. The grilled mushrooms Lin Mu gave him was super delicious. Qiuqiu felt happy that he has an owner to feed him from now on.
Casso was very curious about that little animal named Qiuqiu that Lin Mu brought back. He had never seen such a little animal. It’s fat and chubby, makes him wonder if Qiuqiu tastes good or not. Seeing Qiuqiu resting beside the tree to bask in the sun, Casso stepped up. He squatted in front of Qiuqiu, as he checked him out in curiosity. “Father said he had never seen such an animal like you, even Uncle Patrik said the same. How strange.” He reached out a paw and poked Qiuqiu, “Hey, what kind of beast are you? I haven’t seen anything like you before.”
Qiuqiu was lazy to answer, and he didn’t even bother to open his eyes. He turned around and used his b*tt to face Casso.
Casso saw Qiuqiu ignoring him, and poked Qiuqiu with his paw again, “Hey, why aren’t you answering my question?” After asking that, Casso suddenly thought of something and said, “I forgot, you are just an ordinary beast and not a beastman. Of course, you can’t understand what I said.” Thinking of the other party is just an ordinary small animal, Casso walked proudly in front of Qiuqiu and said, “You are just an ordinary small animal. Such courage you have there to snatch my food. I’m warning you now if you try to snatch my food again, I will eat you. Hehe.” After he said that, he opened his mouth to reveal little wolf teeth.
Qiuqiu stood up angrily, took a swipe at Casso’s face and ran away immediately. Don’t see that Qiuqiu looked tiny, his claw strength is not small. Casso cried out in pain, and try to grab Qiuqiu angrily.
Annoyed, Casso vowed to tear Qiuqiu to pieces. What an infuriating guy for an ordinary beast. Qiuqiu fled in the crowd, with Casso chasing behind, causing commotions. Finally, Qiuqiu jumped into Lin Mu’s arms and hid there.
Casso yelled angrily at Qiuqiu, “You useless little beast, don’t hide in Lin Mu’s arms. See I don’t tear you to pieces.” Casso angrily ground his teeth, “Come down this instant!”
Qiuqiu made jiji sound at Casso and gave him a look of contempt. Then he buried himself into Lin Mu’s arms and faced his b*tt to him.
“Idiot Casso, stupid wolf!” Qiuqiu scolded Casso many times in his heart, many times.
Casso is fuming in anger. He thinks that even as an ordinary beast, Qiuqiu should not hide in the arms of females to seek protection. He must tear Qiuqiu into pieces.
Lin Mu thought that they were playing around, so he smiled and rubbed Casso’s head. But thinking that Casso is not an ordinary beast, he took back his hand and placed Qiuqiu on Casso’s back.
“Casso is bigger than Qiuqiu (in size), so Casso must tolerate Qiuqiu a bit more.”
Qiuqiu did not expect Lin Mu to put him on Casso’s back, nor Casso too. Hence, Casso became furious that an ordinary beast is riding on his back. This is an insult to him, so Casso threw Qiuqiu on the ground angrily and pounced to bite him.
Lin Mu was stunned by the unexpected situation.
Stunned by the incoming attack, Qiuqiu froze on the ground and forgot to escape.
Fortunately, Damon stopped his child in time, saving Qiuqiu from the danger of being killed by a wolf ‘kiss’.
Held in Lin Mu’a arms, Qiuqiu felt angry and aggrieved. He didn’t expect that the abominable little fat wolf is really going to kill him, so awful. Qiuqiu felt despair in his heart, staying in Lin Mu’s arms listlessly.
Although Casso is still angry with Qiuqiu, his anger dissipated as quickly as it comes. Thinking that the other party is just an ordinary beast, and is also Lin Mu’s pet, Casso decided not to be petty with Qiuqiu. Of course, this is also what Damon taught him. After all, everyone can see that Lin Mu likes Qiuqiu very much, and Lin Mu is also very good to Casso. If Casso really hurt Qiuqiu, Lin Mu will definitely be sad.
During a meal, Qiuqiu slumped in Lin Mu’s arms and stopped snatching Casso’s food, while Casso only cared about eating and would not care about Qiuqiu. Qiuqiu watched as Casso joyfully ate his food, and felt a bit unhinged. This fat little thing actually dared to try eating him. Qiuqiu decided to be arch enemies with Casso. After Qiuqiu made up his mind, he started to snatch Casso’s food again. How could he let Casso eat so smoothly?
Casso saw Qiuqiu wants to snatch his food again, and was about to kick him away, but Misha picked Qiuqiu up and fed Qiuqiu with food to please him. Casso swore that Qiuqiu’s smug look must be trying to provoke him, his gaze was filled with contempt. He was about to get angry but was stopped by his father again.
“Eat your food properly, why are you trying to get angry with an ordinary beast? Eat quickly!” Then he whispered a reminder to Casso, “Do you want Misha to teach you a lesson?”
In Casso’s eyes, Misha is the most unreasonable and savage person. But then because he(M) is a female, he has to listen to him(M). Casso glared resentfully at Qiuqiu eating skewers smugly and muttered, “Humph, only know to make the females protect you.” Then he looked at the happy Misha holding Qiuqiu with a smile, “Females only like good-looking but useless thing, humph!”
In the following days, Qiuqiu and Casso will fight for food every time they eat. In normal days, Casso will chase Qiuqiu all over the woods. Qiuqiu will also provoke Casso every day and ended getting chased everywhere. The two have been in a state of loathing each other for days.
Lin Mu often can see Qiuqiu holding his paws up trying to get a swipe while Casso is not paying attention to him, and then Casso will get up and started chasing him. Lin Mu knew that there is a conflict between the two, but he did not try to intervene to resolve it. After all, isn’t it amusing to watch them being noisy?
For so many days, Casso and Qiuqiu met each other with baring teeth. This scene was not uncommon; hence it was quite surprising to see Qiuqiu huddling under a tree motionless today. Casso was very doubtful towards Qiuqiu’s corpse-like state. He saw that Qiuqiu did not come to provoke himself today, nor did he tried to grab his food. That was very strange. If it was the usual, even if Casso is eating fruit, Qiuqiu will go to grab it. Unlike now, even if he is eating not far away, Qiuqiu still didn’t move.
Casso walked in front of Qiuqiu and saw Qiuqiu listlessly opened his eyes, looked at him, then closed his eyes again. Seeing him like this, Casso was very uncomfortable. He extended his paw to poke Qiuqiu but was ignored. Seeing that Qiuqiu didn’t respond, Casso pushed him again. Qiuqiu’s body moved a bit, but still no response. Casso became irritable, he won’t believe that he couldn’t make Qiuqiu move.
Nudging Qiuqiu with his head, Casso pushed Qiuqiu with his front paws. Qiuqiu’s body was originally round, and when pushed by Casso, he rolled forward like a ball. But even then Qiuqiu didn’t get angry and didn’t respond. Casso pressed Qiuqiu with his paws and asked, “What’s wrong with you today? So weird!”
Qiuqiu just looked at him weakly and didn’t respond. Casso looked down, picked Qiuqiu by the scruff with his mouth and left.
Raw word count : 11853 (in total)
Banana: I used pronoun ‘He’ for Qiuqiu and Casso in this extra because it’s a bit hard to use pronoun ‘It’ in the entire chapter. But I will continue to use ‘It’ in normal chapters. It’s easier to distinguish who is who, otherwise there will be too much ‘He’.
