Chapter 19 Lawnmower
Life is still going on, and the group of people who just returned has joined the construction team.
Lin Mu’s bed making team finally overcome several problems, and the first bed ever of another world was born. The bed was intertwined with dense black rattan, but fortunately, the black rattan was thin, so it doesn’t hinder the usage of the bed. Lin Mu suggested that the size of the bed should be around three meters in length and two meters wide. As for the two other extra beds that are way larger than a normal king-sized bed, those were not within Lin Mu’s scope of consideration.
“Lin Mu, your bed is ready. Let me try it for you.”
Because Lal was not participating in this great creation, he has been watching the progress of bed making. As soon as he heard the news that the bed is out, he immediately rushed over. When he saw a few people standing around the wooden bed and checking it out, he went over and impolitely laid on the bed.
Lin Mu felt that it was funny when he saw Lal looking very excited about the bed, “How was it?”
“Comfortable!” Lal squinted slightly to show that he is speaking the truth.
Lin Mu thought for a while then decided with a wave of the hand. “Then, you get the first one.”
Lal immediately sat up. “How can I? The first one should be given to the boss. How can I take it?”
Lin Mu did not expect that Patrik would be given the privilege of priority. But then again, as their leader, like a King of mountain bandits, the best should naturally be given to him and let him enjoy it first. But Patrik himself didn’t care much for this kind of privilege. Lin Mu didn’t think it was necessary to give Patrik the first bed, and he doesn’t think Patrik would care about the first bed either, so he said, “Since you laid on it already, this is yours.”
Lal said bitterly, “Lin Mu, this will give me a huge pressure if you do this.”
“Really!” Lal nodded hard to make his words more credible.
Lin Mu smiled with an unscrupulous smile and said, “Then continue to feel pressured ba.”
“Lin Mu, you’re not kind anymore. It must be you have gotten too close to the boss, so you become bad.”
Lal’s exaggerated and distressed expression made Lin Mu laugh out loud, but to say that he has turned bad from being with Patrik, Lin Mu has to say that Lal is really sensitive, because very few people could see that Patrik is very black-bellied under his usual extremely strict expression.
“Quickly take away your bed,” Lin Mu kindly reminded, “if you feel embarrassed, you and Cohen can find a hidden place to sleep tonight.”
“Lin Mu, you are not cute anymore.” After saying that, Lal lifted the bed and left in anger.
Now that the first bed is ready, as long as one copy the blueprint and follow the previous steps to assemble the bed, Lin Mu can gloriously quit his position as the technical guide.
“Jason, you can continue doing the next one. I’ll go to help Lais and the gang.”
Jason didn’t even stop the movement in his hand and just nodded his head, considered as a response to his words.
“Then, I’ll go first.” Lin Mu was about to leave but was pulled away by Misha.
Misha has been following Matt around since he came back. Even when Matt went to work in the construction team, Misha still will be on his side. It can be seen that Misha was deeply saddened by the time they were separated. He wondered why Misha’s expression would so black and wrinkling his small face, he looked quite dissatisfied.
“What’s wrong, Misha?”
“Lin Mu, why did you give the first bed to Lal? It should be mine. Lal didn’t even help out with anything and took away the first bed made by my father. Lal is the most annoying person!”
So this was the reason. Lin Mu smiled and said to him, “Misha, you can let your father make another one for you, make a better one than this. Let me think, how about asking Matt to make you a bed with a box built into it? This way, you can put some of your treasures inside. Also, Misha’s bed can be carved with beautiful patterns, it would surely be better than Lal. Satisfied now?”
Misha stopped feeling angry when he heard that he could have a better and more beautiful bed made for him. “En, I’ll ask my father to make a bed better than you, oh no I mean, make one just a little worse than yours.” In Misha’s heart, Lin Mu, as Patrik’s prospective partner, should use the best.
Lin Mu rubbed Misha’s little head. “Hehe, alright. Mine is the best, and Misha’s one will be the most beautiful bed.”
After that, Lin Mu went to Matt and discussed how to make the beds more beautiful and convenient. He mainly talked about the style of some modern beds, and let the rest of them freely expand their ideas. Matt has lived up to expectations, so with that, Lal’s bed became the simplest bed in the tribe.
Lin Mu came to where Phil worked, and they are still mowing the grass. They needed a lot of thatch to build the roof, so Lais and Sasha helped out as well. Lloyd, who was originally helping out because of his injury, immediately left the female group the moment he was fully healed. With that, Lloyd has once again let Lin Mu experience the powerful vitality of the beastman. Lin Mu handed them some fruits he brought along the way and said, “Don’t worry too much, just balance your work and rest. Eat some fruits, drink some water, and rest a bit before going back to work.”
The three wiped the sweat from their foreheads and went down to rest on the grass.
Lin Mu handed some water to Lais and the other two, asking, “Tired?”
After drinking a few gulps of water, Sasha wiped the water droplets from his mouth. “I’ve never been this tired, but I’m happy doing it.”
Lais nodded in agreement.
“I felt tired at the beginning. It was quite unbearable, but it’s much better now. My arm didn’t throb at night anymore.” Phil felt that he had made great progress.
“You have to let your beastman massage your arms at night, and it will be better. Everything needed to be so rushed because the time is tight.”
Looking at the large grass field in front of him, Lin Mu kind of missed the lawnmower. Lin Mu felt that there should be another way to do this. They still have a lot of work to do, and they can’t keep cutting the grass here. Lawnmower, lawnmower… then a light bulb suddenly flashed in his mind, “Yes! Lal, there is no better person than Lal.”
“Lin Mu, why do you need Lal for?” Phil knew who Lal is, he is a very lively beastman. But why would Lin Mu suddenly became excited and asking for him?
“Of course we need to ask him for help. Hehe, we can save a lot of time and effort now.”
“No need to get the beastmen for help, we can do it ourselves.” Lais felt that they had a good division of labor. He didn’t want to ask the beastmen for help, and they were doing fine.
Lin Mu winked and said, “You’ll see.”
Lal was very happy that Lin Mu came to ask him for help but hesitated when he heard that they want him to help cutting the grass. He is a beastman, so being in the female group makes him feel so awkward.
When Lal was still immersed in his thoughts, Lin Mu hopefully said to Lal, “Lal, quick. Transform now.”
“Transform?” He glanced at the other three females looking at him curiously and said, “That’s not good ba.” After all, his beast form is not very cute.
“I ask you to transform, so hurry and transform.” Lin Mu urged.
Lal saw Lin Mu insisted, so he agreed. He asked them to step aside and then instantly turned into a huge beast, a huge centipede.
Lin Mu looked at Lal’s numerous feet and ordered, “Lal, your legs are so sharp, you just need to cut the grass as you go. Also, please help us to make a path in all four directions.”
Because there isn’t anyone living in the valley before, naturally, there aren’t any obvious pathways in the mountain. There were lush grasses everywhere. They still have to go up the mountain to find treasures, so how can they be blocked by the road problem?
“Okay, no problem.”
It was a piece of cake for Lal. After he said that, he shook his huge body and started sweeping the grasses with his legs.
Phil and the other two looked at the grasses and branches that went flying wherever Lal passed by in surprise, and Lin Mu was very satisfied with Lal’s efficiency.
“This is a very useful lawnmower.” Then he spiritedly asked the three who were still stunned in amazement, “What are you waiting for? Let’s pack the grass that Lal cut.”
The efficiency has increased several times, Lin Mu’s group only need to pile up the grass cut by Lal, and let the beastman carry it back. Following behind Lal, they also collected the branches that Lal swept down. Picking firewood is also one of their tasks. After all, in the rainy season, they still need to make fire and busy around in the morning cooking, and this method was very effective.
Four people were very tired from doing the chores and laid in their respective hammocks to rest. The hammocks were made by Lin Mu using black rattan. Because when he looked at the bed and then at the trees, he thought of hammocks. There are ready-made materials around, so Lin Mu naturally will not let the chance go; hence, hammocks are born, and it was very popular too.
“I have decided, I will not cook at noon. I want to rest.”
“En, me too. The beastmen know how to make soup anyway.”
“En, we don’t have to eat stir fry at noon.”
Lin Mu: “…”
Sasha: “I’m really hungry.”
Hahaha…The three laughed out loud.
Lais thinks that life is really good now.
