Chapter 38 The end of the season
Lin Mu thought both Sasha and Phil were taken to some ‘ideal appearance’ re-education. As for Lais, he must have gone back to make clothes. Such a diligent guy, Lais has started to make winter clothes now. Lin Mu thought about why he didn’t go to make clothes together with him(L). Lais is quite quiet when he is making clothes, so if he(LM) is going to be sitting in a daze anyway, why not go to Patrik instead? Other than that, he wondered what Patrik was discussing with Jason.
Lin Mu saw Jason coming out from the room, and he greeted Jason with a smile. Jason nodded blankly. Accustomed to Jason’s behavior, Lin Mu went into his room and pulled the curtain down.
“Patrik, take out the glowing stones, the room is too dark.”
Patrik was sitting by the bed when he saw Lin Mu came in. Hearing what Lin Mu said, he stood up and took the glowing stones out of the bed cabinet. He talked to Lin Mu while putting the stones, “Why did you come back so early? Not staying to play with the females?”
Lin Mu climbed onto the bed and laid comfortably on a pile of animal skins.
“Lloyd and Locke have pulled them away, and Lais went to make clothes again. So I came back.”
After Patrik has placed the glowing stones on the wooden brackets by the wall, the room was illuminated in soft and bright lights. He saw Lin Mu lying lazily on the bed, but Lin Mu is still very likable no matter how he looked at him.
As Patrik came nearer, Lin Mu sat up with his chin raised up, and asked, “What are you talking about with Jason in the room? So sneaky.”
Patrik sat by the bed and rubbed Lin Mu’s hair. “Sneaky? How?”
Lin Mu avoided Patrik’s grabby claws and said, “Deliberately avoiding me, not letting me listen, isn’t that sneaky? Say it, what were you talking about? Reveal a bit to me?” Lin Mu asked curiously with his head tilted.
Patrik put away the small animal skin bag that was used to store the glowing stones. “Discussing with Jason what to do after the rainy season.”
“Really?” Lin Mu looked at him with suspicion, “It shouldn’t be that simple? If it’s so simple, why don’t you let me listen in? Instead, you diverted me away this morning.”
“It’s that simple. I was about to discuss with you what we have to do after the rainy season. Mu Mu, you think, what should we do after the rainy season? How should we collect food?”
Hearing Patrik talking about serious matters, Lin Mu sat up and crossed his legs, “Hmm, what should we do?”
Patrik saw Lin Mu thinking about something else and stopped asking about Jason. He didn’t want to lie to Lin Mu but also wanted to make things better for both of them. Looking at Lin Mu seriously taking care of the tribe and him as well, and thinking about how to make the tribe better, Patrik’s heart softened into a puddle. He felt that this was the grace given by the beast god.
Lin Mu thought about what to do after the rainy season ends. Collecting food is the first task. After all, food is the most important thing. There is also the problem of keeping warm in winter.
“Patrik, how long is the winter season?”
Patrik: “Over 150 days.”
“More than 5 months ah. Then we have to prepare a lot of food.”
“You don’t have to worry about food. The beastman in our tribe are all hunting experts. Although there is fewer prey in winter, but rest assured, we can definitely live through winter safely. Moreover, we have a house now, which is much better than before. ”
“I heard Misha talked about the winter season. You haven’t been able to eat enough in winter before. That’s not enough.”
Patrik sighed, “Although there is a lot of food in autumn, it can’t be preserved. Hunting in winter is not easy, so gathering food will be harder. However, I will not let you suffer, trust me.”
Lin Mu smiled softly, “I believe in you, but we can definitely have a comfortable winter this year. You have to believe me too.”
Patrik hugged the person in his arms, “I have always believed that Mu Mu is the most amazing person.”
Lin Mu chuckled, “I’m not that amazing. I’m actually one of the most useless people back in my place. I stayed at home all day and don’t contact people. Although I don’t want to admit it, it’s actually a way of escape reality.”
“Mu Mu is the most talented and useful person in my heart. And even if Mu Mu is useless, it doesn’t matter, I can raise Mu Mu to be chubby and fair.”
“Tsk, I don’t want to be chubby, I’m not a bun(baozi).”
Although Patrik doesn’t know what a bun is, he still thinks that a chubby Lin Mu looks cute. “It’s better to be fat, you are too thin.”
“I think I’m good enough. Back at my place, thin is beauty. If I’m thin, I’m handsome. If I get fatter, I’m going to be called a pig.”
“It is the responsibility of each beastman to raise their partner up strong and healthy.”
“Strong?” Lin Mu looked at him with a smile.
Patrik nodded, although Lin Mu’s smile seemed a little wicked.
“Then, if I am bigger, will you let me ‘gong’1 you?” If so, Lin Mu felt that growing up strong is good.
“’Gong’ me?” Patrik couldn’t understand Lin Mu’s words.
“It means, during ‘those’ times, I will be on top, and you will lie down.” On the other hand, Patrik’s figure is outstanding.
Patrik understood it now. He looked at Lin Mu with suspicion, as if to say, ‘Are you sure you can?’
“What are you looking at? There is nothing wrong with weak gong and strong shou.”
Patrik nodded in agreement, “Mu Mu, let’s duel.”
“Duel? Why do you want to duel with me?” Lin Mu was surprised.
Patrik: “Because Mu Mu, you said that you are a male. When two males become partners, they will duel to decide who is the top. Therefore, if Mu Mu wants to ‘gong’ me, we will fight a battle for it.”
Lin Mu looked at the smile on Patrik’s face. That’s a smirk, absolutely a smirk. “Humph, I just can’t win over you, what’s there to be proud of?”
Patrik looked at Lin Mu acting stubbornly and bent down to kiss his forehead happily. “Mu Mu, you can’t transform into a beast, so it’s confirmed that you will never beat me. Don’t think about it anymore.” He just wants Lin Mu to stop thinking to ‘gong’ him. Because his chances of winning in a duel with Lin Mu is not that great, as he is not willing to hurt Lin Mu.
“However, I encourage Mu Mu to become stronger,” Patrik added.
Lin Mu ground his teeth in hatred and tickled Patrik, “I said I couldn’t beat you, and you get so proud…”
Lin Mu kept tickling Patrik, “Being prideful huh, I’ll tickle you to death…”
Patrik swiftly pressed Lin Mu under him. Then he returned the favor back to Lin Mu.
“Hahaha…” Lin Mu twisted and turned from the itchiness, “Itchy, don’t tickle me, ha ha ha…”
His loved one wriggling beneath him makes Patrik felt pressured.
Sensing that Patrik’s breathing becoming strange, and his skin burning hot, Lin Mu doesn’t dare to move anymore. He looked at Patrik with sincere eyes, “Patrik, I’m wrong, let me go.”
. . . . . .
An energetic exercise took a lot of Lin Mu’s physical strength, which caused Lin Mu to sleep the entire afternoon until the sky becomes dark. But when he saw Patrik beside him the moment he opened his eyes, Lin Mu felt much better; at least he didn’t swiftly take a bite out of Patrik. After all, Lin Mu is quite angry from being ‘tossed’ around by Patrik. Although he also enjoyed it, the aftereffect was too apparent.
Patrik saw Lin Mu woke up, he immediately delivered a gentle smile and then handed over the food he prepared for Lin Mu. After all, Lin Mu went through a physically demanding exercise with him and missed lunch, so he must be hungry.
Lin Mu felt much more comfortable after drinking some hot soup, but ‘that place’ still felt uncomfortable. Too lazy to get out of bed, Lin Mu thought to himself, ‘I knew I shouldn’t be soft-hearted.’ But he was not angry with Patrik.
“You can go to do your thing, it’s almost dinner time, go out to eat.”
“It’s alright, I’ll accompany you for a while.” Patrik gently hugged the man in his arms, and the two of them enjoyed the silence shared between lovers.
Lin Mu cuddled in Patrik’s arms and thought, although the living condition here was harder, he has someone here who loved him and will accompany him so that he would not feel lonely. With that, Lin Mu is very satisfied.
Two days later.
Lin Mu and Lais were chatting in the main hall when all of a sudden, they felt the hall becoming much brighter.
Sasha looked out of the door. “The sun is out! It seems that the rain has stopped!”
Lin Mu also ran out to watch, looking at the sunny sky, “The rain really stopped. That’s great, the rainy season has finally passed!”
Lin Mu happily ran back to the room and said excitedly, “The rain has stopped, let’s go out and see.”
Being pulled out of the room, Patrik shook his head as he watched Lin Mu getting all excited. Before this, he could already guess that the rainy season would be ending in a day or two. Then, he heard their exclamation of excitement coming from outside the room.
When Lin Mu and Patrik came out, they saw other beastmen outside the door as well, and they were thrilled that the rainy season has passed. After all, hunting in the rainy season is not an enjoyable thing. Lin Mu pulled Patrik out of the door, and basked in the sunlight shining on him, “It’s so comfortable.” Then he pulled at Patrik, “Let’s go, Patrik. Take me to the sky.”
Patrik saw Lin Mu’s joyful expression, instantly transformed to let him up.
Seeing Patrik transformed, Sasha and the rest of the females also asked their beastman to transform and fly2. Other beastman also transformed, eager to move around. Instantly, several giants can be seen flying over the valley at the same time.
Sitting on Patrik while they ascended into the sky, Lin Mu felt like he has gotten one step closer to the sun. “After so many days in the rainy season, I think that even my bones have become humid. It is really comfortable to bask in the sun now.”
He touched Patrik’s dark leathery, armor-like skin. “Patrik, your skin color is black and is easier to absorb light. Do you feel warm?”
“It’s hot but still comfortable.”
Lin Mu touched the scales under his hand. “It’s said that snakes are cold-blooded animals. But Patrik doesn’t seem to be afraid of heat. Moreover, I don’t think your temperature is low.”
Patrik stayed silent, he knows that Lin Mu is just muttering to himself.
“Haha, Lin Mu. It’s comfortable to bask in the sun.” Sasha sat on Locke, and they came to fly beside Lin Mu.
“En, it feels like I haven’t come out for a long time. From the above, our valley still looked pretty.” Phil also came.
Lais: “How about we go around and see?”
Everyone agreed with Lais’s words; they were all suffocated by that rainy season previously.
“Looking from this view, this mountain range is huge.” Lin Mu said while looking at the rolling hills. When they came here, all he could think of was just rushing to the valley as soon as possible3, and he did not look around carefully. What is the mountain? He learned it in elementary school that the mountain is a treasure trove of nature. When he thought of his next treasure hunt, Lin Mu felt quite excited.
“En, there are animals in the mountains, so we don’t have to worry about food.” Lais agreed.
Phil: “The mountains are so big, I wonder if there are other tribes around.”
“There was a tribe nearby, but the cave where they lived collapsed during the rainy season. So they moved away.” Lloyd explained to Phil. He once saw the tribe marching away in the rain.
“Collapsed?!” Sasha exclaimed in surprise, “It’s better to build a house like we did.”
Lin Mu also sighed, those people didn’t have it easy. In fact, if he can, he really wants to teach others how to build a house as well. Not only because of his pity for them, but also because he feared their jealousy towards their unique home. But right now, it is too early to think about it.
Four people, and four beasts, flew in the air. Pleasant laughter could be heard from time to time.
