Chapter 48 Lin Mu’s opinion
Lin Mu sprawled on the bed while looking at his notebook, which is densely filled with words. This notebook was originally placed in a small compartment in his backpack. He didn’t notice it before and only realize it when he was tidying his backpack one day. Lin Mu suddenly felt that he is getting further away from words and civilization. Looking at the notebook that has around 50 pages, he has a sudden urge to write down his own experiences, hoping his memories will be preserved. Then he can reread it when he gets old, it is a good way to pass the time. Just as he finished writing down what happened for today, Lin Mu sensed someone opened the curtain and came in. He raised his head and smiled at the person who came in. Patrik’s hair is wet, it seemed that he had already taken a shower.
As soon as Patrik walked into the room, this is what he saw – a slender person lying on the bed under the soft light, his raised feet revealing a portion of pale skin, and a faint smile on that handsome face. Patrik’s heart was warmed to see Lin Mu smiling at him. This is his female ah, his most precious treasure! Placing the wooden tub on the floor next to the bed, Patrik said, “Mu Mu, come and wash your feet.” He hugged the person in his arms as he said, “May I help you?”
Lin Mu smiled, “Hehe, don’t want. Let me down, I’ll do it myself.” But Patrik didn’t seem like he will let him go, so Lin Mu raised his head and kissed him, “How about now?”
Patrik happily released his hold.
Because the bed is relatively high, Lin Mu can’t sit on the bed to wash his feet. He had to stand in the tub and step around in the water. Supporting his hand on the bed and resting his chin, Lin Mu smiled while watching Patrik make the bed. This man is simply outstanding like that, and he looks good no matter how one look at him.
Patrik made the bed and tidied up the things on the bed. Then he saw Lin Mu looking back at him with a smile. Seeing that he is almost done washing, Patrik picked him up with a smile and helped him dry his feet. He kissed Lin Mu on the forehead and said, “You lie down first, I will pour the water out.”
Lin Mu watched as Patrik went out with the tub, and it didn’t take long before he returns with a new tub of water for washing tomorrow. This person always cares about him so meticulously. With a warmed heart, Lin Mu feels that it is his greatest fortune to be living in this world.
After everything is done, Patrik gathered all glowing stones on the bedside table to make the space on the bed brighter. Lin Mu snuggled in his arms and whispered, “You are the best.” Patrik held the person in his arms and watched as Lin Mu snuggled in his arms like a small animal. Then he heard him muttering something, and smiled as he stroked his back. To have his female saying that he is the best is the greatest compliment for him.
“Mu Mu, our house is almost finished. Are we going to build a courtyard wall?” Although Patrik heard Lin Mu talking about how their house should be built before, he didn’t mention about the wall.
“It’s going to finish soon? That was fast?” He couldn’t help but sigh, “Beastman’s efficiency is high!” After thinking, Lin Mu said, “Let’s build the courtyard wall. Although having a fence where we can see our neighbours and their activities in the yard are very interesting, but thinking that this is our home, I still like to have a space of our own; an independent space that belongs to us both only. We can plant fruit trees in the front yard, and flowers that we like. We can also plant some vegetables in the backyard. It makes me very happy just from thinking about it.”
Lin Mu looked hopeful, and yearning while talking and Patrik liked it. It is their own home. Seeing his partner happily talking about their home and how to construct it, Patrik said, “Mu Mu, I am very happy. Very happy that you can stay beside me.”
“I’m also delighted that you can stay beside me.” Lin Mu kissed Patrik. “I’m afraid of being alone. You have to stay with me forever, you know?”
Patrik: “Ah, I really want to have the ceremony soon.”
“Don’t worry yo, we’ll get married once the house is built, hehe.” It’s funny to see Patrik’s impatient look. “Beastman works fast, so you won’t wait long.” Lin Mu smiled. He held Patrik’s face with a smile, and wonder why he thought he(P) has facial paralysis at first.
Thinking of the ceremony, Lin Mu asked, “Patrik, do you think there is something wrong with Jason and Lais?”
Patrik thinks about Jason’s emotions lately. “I don’t know about Lais, but Jason is a little irritable these days.”
“Irritable huh…” Lin Mu thought for a moment, “Patrik, Jason didn’t propose to Lais, do you know? But, both Lloyd and Locke have proposed marriage, and they will hold their ceremony together with us. So, Lais felt that Jason may not like him.”
That surprised Patrik. That stupid big guy Locke had his own female, and yet Jason still hadn’t succeeded. Thinking about it makes him feel disappointed (towards Jason). Females are precious treasures for any tribe, and even more so for the drifter beastman tribe. There are only 5 females in their tribe, and one of them is still immature. Now there is an outstanding female in Jason’s room. With such an enviable and hateful advantage, he didn’t even propose to Lais and caused the female to think that he(J) did not like him(L). Jason, can you fail any lower?!
When Patrik gets furious, Lin Mu patted him, “Patrik, does Jason likes Lais?”
“No doubt about this.”
Lin Mu wondered, why he is so sure? He himself also thinks that Jason likes Lais, but who knows what the other party is thinking.
“If he doesn’t like Lais, Jason won’t agree to live with Lais.”
“Then, why hasn’t he acted yet? After all, everyone else has proposed marriage, and he knows it too. If he doesn’t take action, it will inevitably make Lais overthink.”
“Who knows which of his animal nerve went wrong?!” What a failure!
“Patrik, go and talk to Jason tomorrow. Lais is not happy these days, it’s not good.”
“To make his female unhappy, Jason failed too much,” Patrik said very solemnly. “Tomorrow I will interrogate him. Jason is not the only beastman pursuing Lais.”
“Interrogate? You won’t get into a fight with Jason, right?”
Patrik seriously replied, “I won’t fight with beastman for other females. This should be done by Lais’s suitors.”
There is something like this huh?
“You just need to know why Jason didn’t act and let him take the initiative.”
After a night of good sleep
Patrik followed Lin Mu’s instructions the next day and found a time to talk to Jason. After talking, Jason and Patrik both returned to their rooms with a deep expression.
Lin Mu was tidying things in the room when he saw Patrik looking worried. Putting down the animal skin in his hand, he asked, “What’s wrong with you?”
Patrik hugged Lin Mu, “Mu Mu, are you staying with me out of gratefulness?”
“What?” Lin Mu was surprised and puzzled by Patrik’s words. What does he mean?
“Mu Mu, you are staying with me because I saved you? Because you were grateful to me?”
Lin Mu understands what happened now, but why does Patrik think like this? He asked, “Why do you think like this?”
Patrik looked at Lin Mu and said, “Beastman generally needs to pursue their female for a long time.”
Lin Mu angrily poked Patrik’s head, “What’s in your mind?! Who would let you ‘do this and that’1 out of gratitude?!” He couldn’t help but blush as he said, “Say it ba, how did you get into such thinking all of a sudden today?” In his opinion, Patrik is not someone who would trouble himself with these questions.
Lin Mu’s words let Patrik understand that his Mu Mu is staying with him because he likes him, so he can rest assured. Then he told Lin Mu what caused the question.
After listening to Patrik, Lin Mu said, “You mean, Jason didn’t propose because he felt that Lais doesn’t have any choices and had to be with him?”
Patrik: “He felt that Lais is staying with him because he(L) had no choice but to choose him(J). After all, he saved Lais and Lais is now in a drifter beastman tribe. Females generally have a deep fear of drifter beastman. Moreover, Lais only knows him out of everyone here. Hence, Jason feels that if he proposes, Lais will have no choice but agree. After all, females need males. However, the union will only be happy when both parties like each other.”
Lin Mu: “What he means is we only have drifter beastman here, with very little choice to choose from. Plus he saved Lais. So, Lais chose him not because he(L) likes him(J) but because there’s no other way?”
Lin Mu couldn’t help having black line on his face2, “Jason thinks too much. Why would Lais choose him if he doesn’t like him? Even though we have very few options here, but if Lais doesn’t like it, he can leave the drifter beastman tribe anytime. Females are precious everywhere, so he doesn’t have to wrong himself by staying.”
To be honest, if he thinks about it, the reason why Jason thinks that way is because of his identity as a drifter beastman. It turns out that even the proud beastman will feel inferior because of this identity.
“I have to help them.” His mind turned, “Hehe, I got it.”
Patrik looked at Lin Mu’s weird smile, wondering what kind of bizarre thing he had in mind again. He pamperingly embraced Lin Mu in his arms and stared at him. It’s fine as long as Lin Mu likes him.
