Chapter 91 Little Wu Fan
This is already the 25th sunset that Lin Mu has seen in this island tribe. Lisa came over and took the baby away to play with the little Yin Yao, so at this moment Lin Mu has some free time to enjoy his private time with Patrik. Hence, they went to the highest mountain on the island to watch the sunset over the sea.
The sea always gives people a welcoming feeling and majestic atmosphere. At this moment, the sun is setting, and the orange-red sunlight dyes the sea red. Before this, Lin Mu got curious and asked Patrik to fly in the direction of the sun, chasing the sunlight to see how the sea looked like under the sunset. Right now, he is quietly nestled in Patrik’s arms, and still feeling that everything is so beautiful. Lin Mu held Patrik’s hand and looked at the scenery of the sea in the distance. From time to time, he could see the dolphins jumping up from the sea.
“It’s really beautiful here.”
“If you like, we can come often in the future.”
This is not a big problem for Patrik. Things in the tribe are running smoothly, and he has Jason and Rey in the tribe. It doesn’t matter if this tribe leader is not in the tribe, so he could accompany Lin Mu out occasionally. Coming out to play is not a problem, but the premise is that they must never bring the little bun1 out, he is hindering his welfare! Fortunately, they are temporarily staying in the tribe and Little Wu Fan is happy to sleep with Yin Yao at night. Otherwise, he will die from restraining himself these days.
Patrik has already planned that after they returned to the tribe, he must cultivate the habit of sleeping alone with the baby as soon as possible. He even wondered if he should get a playmate for Wu Fan. Of course, this playmate must be a small female, he doesn’t want to get a beastman with his little baby. Also, he needs to guard against those young beastmen from setting their sight on his baby. Ai, being a father can’t help worrying about these! However, this is a sweet burden, ain’t it? Although Patrik sometimes thinks that the baby is disturbing his time with Lin Mu, his liking for children doesn’t reduce in the slightest. Besides, there isn’t anyone disliking having a cub in the family.
Lin Mu felt nice after listening to Patrik’s words, but if they only come here every time, it will be a bit monotonous. So he said, “In the future if we have time, let’s go around. This world is so big and there are too many places to go. There are so many places to see. I have always been curious about this world, so I really want to take a trip around the world.”
“When the tribe matures and the baby gets older, I will take you out for a tour. Of course, we can also have short-term trips like this before then.”
The ‘short-term’ that Patrik said is not short at all. The time limit set for their trip this time is anytime before the rainy season, so they have more than 3 months of travel time. The time they spent has passed 2 months, but they can be considered to have fun along the way, so Lin Mu is satisfied with this trip.
Patrik’s words made Lin Mu very happy. He turned his head and kissed Patrik on the cheek, “You are so kind.”
Patrik whispered with a smile in Lin Mu’s ear, “Since I’m so kind, let’s get little Wu Fan to sleep with Yin Yao tonight.”
Lin Mu knows what Patrik means. He(LM) is a normal man too, of course he wants to satisfy his ‘needs’ as well. Hence, he blushed and nodded in agreement. Satisfied with the answer, Patrik pressed down on Lin Mu and kissed him fiercely. He almost couldn’t hold it, but Lin Mu, who got dizzy from the kisses, didn’t forget that they are outside right now, so they could only calm down and continue to watch the sunset.
Little Wu Fan is a little sad tonight because his father asked him to sleep with Yin Yao again. But then when he saw Yin Yao, little Wu Fan’s sorrow is gone. He actually liked being with Yin Yao, and the next day after he stayed over at Yin Yao’s house, his dad would make a good meal for him. The most important thing is every time he sees little Yin Yao and thought of the fact that he(YY) sleeps by himself every night, little Wu Fan feels that at least he has Yin Yao to accompany him2. Moreover, his father has requested him to learn from Yin Yao to sleep by himself in the future. Although Wu Fan really wanted to sleep with his dad, but when he remembers the scene where his father generously praises Yin Yao3, little Wu Fan wants to be praised by his father too.
The next day, Patrik felt refreshed after being ‘fed’ and went out hunting with the men in the tribe. Today, he is going to catch some small fishes that Lin Mu likes to eat. This small fish is very small, only the length of Patrik’s palm and it’s slender. Due to its small size, people in Fony’s tribe don’t bother with it as they think the meat is not enough even to fill the gaps in their teeth, so they generally don’t catch fishes like this that grow only to the length of their palm at max. The fact that the tribe doesn’t hunt them caused a large number of these fish in the area closest to the island. These little fish their life leisurely because except for their natural predators, they are rarely attacked by humans. Of course, this situation ended after Lin Mu came.
When Lin Mu was swimming in the near island area, he saw this kind of fish swimming around him in groups. Him swimming in the area actually didn’t disturb them. Maybe because no one would catch those small fish, they don’t know how terrible humans are. Such a group of small fishes swam past him, they looked like small fried fishes in Lin Mu’s eyes. Lin Mu salivated and hence these small fishes suffered the consequences.
Lin Mu asked Patrik to catch a pot of the fishes. A pot made by Patrik is not small though, it’s a large wooden pot with a diameter of nearly 1 meter and a depth of more than 20 centimeters. Next, Lin Mu and Patrik get together to process the small fishes. Although the fish is not big, it has everything a fish would have. It means there are many things to do when cleaning the fish; removing the scales, gills, and the things in the belly of the fish. The size of the fish made it harder to clean, but Lin Mu can’t resist good food. So two people carefully processed the fish, marinated it, and then covered it with a layer of flour to fry it in the pan. After that, sprinkle some cumin powder on top, perfect!
The family of three like the small fried fish and Little Wu Fan ate them as snacks. Of course, those who were given some of the fishes also liked it, but the beastman still felt that the meat is too small. One bite means one whole fish, it’s not enjoyable. The beastmen like the fried fish fillet that Lin Mu taught them before instead. After all, beastman likes the feeling of eating large pieces of meat. On the contrary, the females like such small fish. The small fish is full of flavor and can be used as snacks. Especially the little Yin Yao from Lisa’s family, he is fond of them. He will pick one to eat while playing with little Wu Fan. There are not many fish bones, so the adults don’t worry that it will get stuck in the children’s throats. Moreover, Yin Yao is familiar with the skills of eating fish.
Since the females and children like to eat it, the little fish started to suffer from then on, but the amount caught by the beastman is not large, so it will not affect the development of the school of fish. Though the beastmen do not know what ‘sustainable development’ means, but they know not to hunt too much. Food is their source of life, so they will not hunt too much and just enough to eat. Moreover, when they hunt, they usually do it away from the island where they live, in order not to damage the environment of the island.
Lin Mu only woke up near noon. When he woke up, he saw little Wu Fan lying next to him and staring at him. As soon as Wu Fan saw Lin Mu opened his eyes, he said happily, “Papa, you woke up.” Little Wu Fan can speak a lot more clearly recently from playing with little Yin Yao. They often chat happily, so Wu Fan’s ability to speak has also increased a lot.
The moment Lin Mu saw little Wu Fan, he started looking for clothes to cover himself, so as not to let the baby see those ambiguous traces on his body. If little Wu Fan became curious and asked, it would be difficult for him to explain. But just as he is about to look around, Lin Mu realized that he is neatly dressed. Thinking that Patrik helped him put them on, he felt warm at heart for Patrik’s carefulness.
Sitting up, Lin Mu picked up the baby, and asked in an amused tone, “Baby didn’t go to play with Yin Yao? Why come back so early?”
“It’s not early and it’s about time for lunch. I ate some from Yin Yao’s house. The meal is not as good as ours.” Wu Fan tilted his head and said, “But I did say thank you. It’s not as delicious as ours, but I still remember to thank others for inviting me to eat. I remember this is what dad taught me.”
Lin Mu laughed. His baby makes him happy when he sees him.
Lin Mu found out that little Wu Fan didn’t have many memories of his past. He didn’t remember who is his real father and dad and he almost forgot everything in the past. Right now, little Wu Fan only sees him as his dad and Patrik was his father. Also, getting along with Yin Yao made Wu Fan more like a child now. He would act like a baby and know to please the adult. He also knows to scream or fake cry when Lin Mu didn’t give him what he wanted. Of course, these are all caused by mimicking other children, but Lin Mu is happy to see that. Children should act like children, like acting cute and pretending to cry. Although Patrik will pretend to be regretful when the baby is making trouble and saying things like, ‘Baby is not as good as he used to be” but Lin Mu can see that Patrik is satisfied with Wu Fan’s change.
When Patrik came in, he saw Lin Mu holding little Wu Fan. The pair of father and son is laughed happily together. Smiling, Patrik went to carry Wu Fan; the baby is quite heavy for Lin Mu.
“What are you two talking about? You looked so happy.”
“I’m smiling at our Wu Fan’s sensibleness for knowing to thank his friend.”
“En, quite sensible.” Although Patrik didn’t know what it is about, he still gave his compliment to little Wu Fan.
Embarrassed by the praise, Wu Fan whispered, “Dad taught me well.”
“Pff…” Lin Mu laughed again and went out to cook in a jovial mood. “What baby would like to eat today? Dad will make it for you.”
Hearing that he can choose his meal, Wu Fan immediately listed, “Fried chicken legs, shrimp, and, also… also… potatoes.”
“Then do you want to give a portion to your little friend?”
“Yin Yao likes to eat shrimp, Dad. I will give some shrimps to Yin Yao.”
Lin Mu continued to tease Wu Fan and asked, “Then will baby give a chicken leg to Yin Yao?”
Little Wu Fan struggled internally. Dad will only make 2 drumsticks for him. Finally, he said, “Alright, I’ll give him one.”
Seeing that his baby is so reluctant to give up the drumstick, Lin Mu laughed out unkindly. When the baby looked like he is going to be angry, Patrik chipped in and said, “Let dad make 3 drumsticks for you today.” The baby is instantly pacified.
Lin Mu looked at Patrik’s helpless smile and touched his nose embarrassedly, “I’m going to cook.”
Wu Fan saw that his dad is going to make lunch, and said to Patrik, “Father, let me down. I’m going to help.”
Although little Wu Fan is most likely can’t help with anything, Patrik is not someone who will hit a child’s self-esteem. So, he put little Wu Fan down and watched him run after Lin Mu happily.

My computer can’t access the Internet these past two days. It seems that this problem occurs just in my dormitory building. Sad. Fortunately, the Internet is available now.
