Chapter 52 New house Part 2
After breakfast the next morning, Lin Mu approached Matt and told him what he wanted him to make, and then explained the usefulness of the glue he found. This kind of gum is really good. He tried the glue on a wooden board, and it was firmly glued together. And so, the rest of the tribe collected a lot of the gum, and they brought back the solidified ones as well. Lin Mu tried to heat them, and it melted. Moreover, its adhesive effect was not affected.
After talking to Matt, Lin Mu went to his new home. Standing in front of the nearly completed house, Lin Mu can see that their house is the only one in the tribe with a courtyard wall and is the largest of the newly built houses. It’s not that they want to be unique or emphasize Patrik’s status as the tribe leader. In fact, the valley is really big, and the land is vast enough to build anything. But for the other tribesmen, they felt like they don’t have the use of a big house, and they think it is more convenient to not make a courtyard wall.
Lin Mu came to the courtyard and glanced around. From the entrance, the main room is across the living room, and there was a room on the left and right sides of it. Then, there is a room on either side of the main room, which would be used as a kitchen and storage room1. Going around the kitchen to the backyard, Lin Mu can see that the front yard and backyard are quite big. He started to wonder if he would grow something when Patrik walked out of the house and called him, “Come in and see.”
Lin Mu walked over with a smile, and Patrik took his hand, “Look at the house and see how you want to decorate it; the decision is up to you.”
“Alright!” Then he pulled Patrik into the house.
“I want to put a big table in the living room. We will eat here in the future. In the summer, we can eat in the yard. You can make a stone table and some stools, and we will place them under the wooden shed in the yard.”
After Lin Mu finished speaking, he ran into the room on his left. The room is still very empty, but it will be full when they put their things in.
“This room is sunny, so let’s stay in this room in winter. I always hear people say that it is freezing in winter. Makes me wonder if we should make kang beds. Of course, I can’t make authentic kang beds, but I probably can make a similar one.”
“En, kang bed is warm when fired up.” Lin Mu checked the size of the room and started thinking about where to start. After decided on a plan, he said, “Let’s go to the other room and have a look. It’s a wise plan to build two rooms indeed. When it’s cold, we can stay in this room. If it’s hot, we can change to another room.”
Looked at how excited Lin Mu is, Patrik wondered whether to tell him the real reason he built two extra rooms, which one is actually for their future children. Their house was not like other beastmen’s, as they simply build a large main room, a kitchen, and a storage room. Thinking about it, Patrik decided not to mention about children to Lin Mu. If they have children in the future, they can build another room then. It is difficult for females to get pregnant after all. He won’t insist on having children; it’s fine as long as Lin Mu stays with him forever. He followed Lin Mu to look at the other room and said, “Let’s move our things in two days.”
After that, Patrik stood with Lin Mu outside their house, listening to Lin Mu sighing, “Patrik, this is our home.”
Patrik held Lin Mu in his arms. He knew that Lin Mu really wanted to have a home, a place to rest. Seeing that Lin Mu can now live such a free and happy life, Patrik felt very relieved. Seeing Lin Mu smiling in his arms, Patrik recalled some memories. He could see Lin Mu’s initial anxiety, but he didn’t know how to give him a sense of security or how to make him happy. But now he knows, he just has to provide Lin with Mu a home, a place for him to wait for him, and letting Lin Mu depend on him.
The two were immersed in the feeling of happiness.
“Lin Mu, Lin Mu…”
Lin Mu turned around and saw Lais and Phil walking towards him. Sasha ran over happily, “Lin Mu, my house is done. Do you want to check it out? Although it is not as big as yours, I think Locke has built it quite well.”
“Alright, I’ll take a look at your house. When are you all going to move in?”
Lais: “Jason said we should move in two days. We talked about how to decorate our house just now, but we also want to hear your opinion. We don’t have a courtyard wall, so I want to ask you how to make the fence you mentioned before.”
“Fence is good; if you plant some vine plants, it will be lovely. Alright now, I will check out your houses.”
Then Lin Mu turned his head to Patrik behind him, “We still lack a wooden door. You can start making one. As for our room, it’s cool right now, so let’s use animal skin curtains as the door.”
When Lin Mu got up in the morning, he opened the door curtain and saw the table in the living room. It was just a simple square wooden table and square stools, but it was good enough in Lin Mu’s opinion. He has lived in the new house for two days. Now that everyone’s houses are almost completed, they started moving into their new homes one after another. Everyone was quite disappointed in this emptiness for a while, though; after all, they were used to staying together under one roof; it was very lively. But everyone knows that this move is necessary, and they were actually looking forward to their new home.
Strolling into the kitchen and eating the breakfast Patrik prepared for him, Lin Mu thought about what Patrik told him last night.
“I’m leaving for a few days.”
“Why?” Lin Mu was surprised because Patrik has never left him for a long time.
“I need to catch a firefox2. Since we are going to have the ceremony, I need to hunt for your ceremonial clothes.”
“Will there be any danger?”
“No,” Patrik said comfortingly. He couldn’t predict whether it’s perilous or not himself.
Thinking that it’s their tradition to make clothing for the ceremony, Lin Mu naturally won’t object. So he said, “Then you have to come back early.”
Lin Mu sighed after eating the food in the bowl; he felt a little uncomfortable when Patrik is not around. Although Patrik used to go out hunting, Lin Mu knew that he would at least be back at night, but now it is different. Lin Mu couldn’t think about anything right now and suddenly felt that he is really dependent on Patrik. If this is back in his previous world, he would definitely feel scared because over-reliance in that society is not a good thing. But here, relying on his partner is natural.
“I should ask Phil and the others for something to do to kill time.”
The females gathered together to find out that their beastman has gone out as well.
“Lin Mu, you can learn to make clothes with us these days. You can’t escape this time, and we can’t help you with the clothes either.” Lais suggested while looking at the listless Lin Mu.
The other two supported the suggestion.
“Ai!” And so, Lin Mu entered the painful days of making clothes.
