Chapter 81 Winter accessories
When Lin Mu got up that morning, Patrik told him that it is snowing again. Lin Mu didn’t expect that it hadn’t cleared a few days before it started to snow again. Due to the cold weather, Lin Mu hasn’t gone out much. The last time was the previous sunny day, so he played a lot with Huang Yuan and the others in the yard that day.
Also because it was sunny that day, Patrik took the opportunity to shovel out the snow that has accumulated in the yard, and on the roof. Before the yard even has the opportunity to dry, snow started falling again.
“Patrik, your efforts are wasted. It’s snowing again.” There was a little tone of gloating in Lin Mu’s words. Humph, serve you right for not letting me play in the snow.
What happened that sunny day was, Lin Mu and the other females clamored to play in the snow, build snowmen, and snowball fights, but the beastmen was afraid that their female would get frostbite, so they disagreed. Although Patrik didn’t say anything to oppose Lin Mu, he showed it with his actions. His method was straightforward; he gets rid of the snow. The females were not allowed to play outside the yard, and there was no snow in the yard. Hence, the snowball fight and building snowmen cannot be done.
Patrik only laughed when Lin Mu said this. He knew that Lin Mu is complaining about that day he didn’t let him play in the snow, but he didn’t regret doing that. Females are terribly weak. Not only they would suffer the consequences, the beastman would feel more distressed if their partner is suffering. That’s why he has to consider for Lin Mu’s sake all the time. As far as Lin Mu’s physique is, Patrik feels that he is more relieved if Lin Mu stays in a warm bed all winter.
Lin Mu sat in the living room watching the snow after eating lunch. Of course, this view was only through a gap. They don’t have doors fitted to the doorframe so they used large pieces of animal skins as door curtains in winter. The skins are thick and heavy, which can block the cold air from coming in and is better than wooden doors. But the only disadvantage is that it’s inconvenient to look outside. He can’t pull up the curtain just to see the scenery outside, right? Won’t the cold wind all blow into the house? Hence, to satisfy Lin Mu’s urge to peek outside and enjoy the scenery, Patrik opened a small hole in the middle and right side of the door curtain. The hole is only the size of Lin Mu’s forehead. Whenever Lin Mu wants to see outside, he can remove the animal skin covering the small hole.
Lin Mu shifted and sat on the stool next to the curtain, watching the snow scene from the small hole. It was unfortunate but he can’t tolerate the cold at all.
Patrik gave Lin Mu a bamboo tube filled with hot water for Lin Mu to warm his hands. The chair made for Lin Mu is a recliner, but it has also been deliberately made large so that two people can lie on it together. Patrik lay down next to Lin Mu after cleaning up their lunch, then enveloped him in his arms. After that, he covered both of them with an animal skin blanket, which was considered warm. Lin Mu was completely nestled in Patrik’s arms. Covered with a thick animal skin quilt, and only exposing a pair of eyes were exposed, one can feel how warm and nice it is from looking at Lin Mu.
When the two thought they will be quietly watching the snow falling to pass this day, the door/curtain of their house was pushed open, and then they saw Locke coming in with the tightly wrapped Sasha.
“Boss, you are at home, right? So I’m coming in?”
Lin Mu couldn’t help but roll his eyes when he heard what Locke said. Normally, people will knock on the door outside the courtyard to ask if they could come in. But this man is better, he simply barges in first before asking if he could come in.
Seeing that someone has arrived to bother their time, Patrik can only feel helpless in his heart. He had no choice but to take Lin Mu to the back room and put him on the kang bed. Because they kept the fire under the kang bed burning, the room and the bed are warm.
After cleaning up, Patrik said, “Come in.”
In fact, Locke was waiting anxiously. Although it was only a little bit of time and he is not afraid of the cold, he is afraid of freezing the person in his arms. However, thinking of his boss’ face that could freeze anyone, Locke doesn’t dare to go further into the house. Moreover, it’s winter time where ambiguous things could happen anytime. If he rashly went in and saw something he shouldn’t, it would be terrible. Locke is afraid that his boss would eliminate him on the spot. He wouldn’t mind dying but who will take care of his family Sasha? So he must not offend his boss!
Locke slowly placed the completely wrapped up Sasha down when he entered the living room, but the person in his arms can’t wait to be uncovered.
“Locke, you can chat with tribe leader here, I’ll talk to Lin Mu,” Sasha said that and swiftly ran into the back room.
Beastman can’t enter the back room of other people’s house. Moreover, if all females are gathered together, even their beastman can’t enter. Anyone dare to go, they can wait to get beaten up by other beastmen. As for why, the reason is simple. These females will be chatting, laughing, playing together, and all of them will be on the kang bed. Such a beautiful side of their partners, the beastmen will feel uncomfortable to let other beastman see it.
As if everyone set the appointment to get together, the females came to Lin Mu’s house one after another. Unexpectedly, Ria also came today, and he was carried over by Damon. It was unfortunate that Lin Mu didn’t get to see this scene. Otherwise, he will definitely brainstorm whether there is a taste of ‘affair’ in this action. But it’s a pity that Lin Mu didn’t know anything about it, and Ria was the last one to arrive. After Damon carefully put Ria down, Ria blushed and ran into the back room.
The other beastman naturally wouldn’t say anything except to make fun of Damon. They won’t gossip about it unless of course, their partner took the initiative to ask.
The females were laughing and chatting when Ria suddenly ran in while blushing. They all cast their eyes on him, causing Ria to walk in the same hands and feet instantly.
Lais hurriedly supported Ria and scolded, “Why are you running in such a hurry? You are pregnant, this is not good.”
At the moment, Ria also realized that it is not good for him to run. But he was too shy just now and forgot about it. Knowing that Lais is caring for him, Ria nodded and said, “I won’t do that anymore.”
Receiving an ‘I’m wrong’ look from Ria, Lais smiled and said, “You are a witch doctor and should understand this better than me. Just remember next time.”
Lin Mu quickly invited Ria to come up to the kang. He put a bolster pillow at the wall, and let Ria sit next to him. Ria can rest against the wall when he is tired, and with the pillow as a barrier, the cold from the wall won’t affect him.
Ria walked carefully to Lin Mu and sat down. Lin Mu covered him with a quilt, and then looked at his stomach curiously. Because everyone is wearing thicker in winter, he couldn’t see the shape of Ria’s stomach. “Ria, when will the baby born?”
Speaking of the child in his belly, Ria gave a motherly smile, “There are still more than 6 months left.”
“That means after the 4 months of winter. The baby will be born in spring? The weather at that time won’t be too hot or cold, just nice.”
Ria smiled and nodded.
When it comes to babies, the females have endless topics, such as what the child’s name should be. What? You haven’t think about it? Then start thinking. Another example of their topic is whether the baby will be a little female or a little male? They even thought about the baby’s future. For example, if the baby is a female, what kind of beastman should be his partner. If the baby is a male, how should the beastman find his dear female partner, etc… The females chatted happily, thinking that there will be more children in the tribe in the future, they became happier.
“Ria, you must be careful in your daily activities. Don’t do anything if you can not do anything. Let Damon do the tiring and heavy work. Don’t be polite to him and just tell him what you want.” By now, Lin Mu learned one thing very well: beastman should help females.
Ria listened to Lin Mu’s words and whispered, “That’s not very good? After all, I am living in his house and bother him a lot.”
“What bother? Beastman should help you.” Sasha said.
Lais: “Yes, the most important thing is you are pregnant now. It is nothing to ask him to do something, right? Plus, the other party looked quite willing to do it?”
“En, En, Damon is a good person. I can see that he takes good care of you. Don’t feel awkward. The most important thing for you now is to maintain your health.”
Lin Mu smiled and said, “They are right. You really don’t have to be polite with Damon. If you are polite with him, he will feel uncomfortable instead. You should learn from Huang Yuan. Can’t you see him casually instructs Ryan to do this and that? And Ryan cheerfully did everything.”
“Hey hey, aren’t we talking about Ria? How did it get shifted to me? But Lin Mu is right. You don’t have to be polite with the beastman.”
Ria nodded but didn’t agree or disagree.
After a while, the females changed the subject.
“The snow is so heavy today, so why all of you come to my house?” After all, such weather is not suitable for going out.
Phil replied honestly, “I actually wanted to go out and watch the snow, but Lloyd wouldn’t let me, so I wanted to come and play with you.”
“En, I want to go out to play as well, but it’s too cold. Before this, I playfully grabbed a handful of snow in my hand, and it makes me feel freezing to death. Then, standing outside being blown by the wind, my face and ears hurt so much that I can’t play.” Sasha said disappointedly.
For Lais and Adeline, they felt that it would be warmer to gather around to talk on such a snowy day, so they came to Lin Mu’s house. Of course, they didn’t expect everyone to gather together.
As for Ria, he was carried over by Damon. Damon thinks that Ria would be happy to chat with Lin Mu. The last time after coming back from Lin Mu’s house, Ria stayed in a good mood for a long time. Therefore, on a quiet snowing day like this, Damon thinks he should let Ria stay with Lin Mu a bit, lest he thinks about bad things by himself.
To be honest, looking at the thick layer of snow outside, Lin Mu also wanted to go out to play, but it was too cold. The cold wind that blew on his face felt like a knife slicing on his skin. If only he had a hat… Thinking of the modern winter essentials like gloves, masks, and hats, Lin Mu felt that he could make gloves and hats for himself. If he is tightly covered, he could go out to play.
Hence, Lin Mu said to the females, “Let’s make hats and gloves.”
The females knew about the gloves. In summer, Lin Mu made gloves to avoid hurting his hands because they had to go up the mountain to pull weeds. As for the hats, it was the first time they heard about it (except Huang Yuan).
Now that Lin Mu thought of doing it, he naturally wanted to start immediately. Moreover, all of the females happened to gather here. Whenever there is a problem, everyone can study and discuss it together. Lin Mu got out of bed to get animal skins and needles, while Huang Yuan is responsible for telling others about the common style of hats and its function.
When he went out, Lin Mu saw the beastmen sitting in the living room chatting with each other. It seemed that the entertainment option in this world is really sad. In his mind, he wondered if he could find something for the beastmen to kill time also.
Seeing Lin Mu come out, Patrik stepped forward and asked, “What’s wrong? Just tell me what you need.”
“I want to make gloves and hats. Bring out all the rabbit skins for me.” As they were talking, the 2 little young ones got in.
Lin Mu saw Qiuqiu and there were water drops on its body, so he took a towel and wiped Qiuqiu dry. He also wiped Casso, and then put a small blanket next to the stove to let them dry themselves. After that, he took out some snacks for them.
Lin Mu took the rabbit skin that Patrik had brought and said, “Give me 1 of the persimmons on the windowsill.”
The taste of frozen persimmon is quite different than usual, but one can’t eat a lot of it. Patrik limited the amount and stated that Lin Mu can only eat 1 at most a day.
Of course, Patrik would not really bring just 1 back. Upon seeing Lin Mu eating something, the other females would want it too, so he picked up 6 persimmons for Lin Mu in a small basket. “Don’t let Ria eat the persimmons.”
Lin Mu is not going to let Ria eat those icy persimmons too, so he took a lot of jerky as snacks for him. Lin Mu discovered that it might be because of pregnancy, Ria likes to eat non-stop recently.
The females ate while studied the making of gloves and hats in the room, and the gloves were smoothly made. Everyone tried to put them on, and the gloves felt quite warm. Plus they looked fluffy and cute. Since they found out how to make the gloves properly, the females started to make a pair for themselves. Of course, this does not including Huang Yuan, he still doesn’t know how to sew. So, Lin Mu gave Huang Yuan the first pair he did, and proceed to make another pair for himself.
For the hat, Lin Mu wanted to make the kind with ear protection and drew a rough outline for the females to see. Everyone tried to make it but it was not very successful at first, though the basic form is there. If they try again, it might work next time. The style of the hat is very simple, that is, the animal skins cut into pieces are simply stitched together to form the shape he wanted.
After putting on the gloves and hat, Lin Mu hides his ears in the hat and looked at himself. He is just missing a scarf and the whole winter look is completed. Lin Mu decided to make a scarf with the kind of mosquito net cloth made by Patrik at night. That fabric is soft and stylish, so it’s quite nice to be made into a scarf.
Ever since the gloves and hats were made, boots, cotton shoes, and slippers were born. Of course, the process took everyone about 6 or 7 days.
The weather was fine on this day. Lin Mu brought his rabbit leather hat and gloves, animal leather cotton boots, and came to the door with a scarf. Finally, Lin Mu can come out of the house and walk around. At this moment, he saw Huang Yuan walking towards his home, so he waved to him, “Ah Yuan.”
“Hey.” Huang Yuan greeted Lin Mu and speed up his pace. He too finally could go out on his own.
