Chapter 95 Returning to the tribe – Lin Mu flipped 1
When Patrik and Lin Mu reaching the area near their tribe, they happened to bump into Jason who just came back from hunting so Lin Mu greeted Jason happily.
“Jason, it’s nice to meet you. We are back so how is the tribe now?” Lin Mu felt happy to meet his friends from the tribe.
At first, Jason is delighted to see that Patrik and Lin Mu have returned, but when he heard Lin Mu’s question, all the joy disappeared in an instant.
Seeing that Jason didn’t respond to him, Lin Mu felt something is wrong. Even though Jason kept his usual icy expression, Lin Mu could still see the troubled look on the side of his face at the moment.
Patrik also noticed Jason’s strangeness. Thinking of Lin Mu’s question, Patrik realized that something happened in the days when they left the tribe.
Patrik: “Let’s go back and talk about it.”
The joyful feeling that Lin Mu has for returning to the tribe has completely gone. They followed Jason to his house, and the tribe people greeted them warmly along the way. However, they also met some strangers. Lin Mu disliked the wait-and-see attitude of those strangers.
“Jason, why are there so many strangers in the tribe?”
Patrik pulled Lin Mu, whose’s expression obviously looked bad, and comforted, “Let’s wait until we arrived at Jason’s house and talk about it.”
Lin Mu didn’t say anything anymore, but in his heart, he felt extremely suffocated. This is completely different from the cheerful scene he had expected. It is really disappointing!
Lin Mu angrily strode towards his home. After listening to Jason and Lais talking about the recent events, he has a bellyful of anger and has nowhere to vent. Everything happened because their tribe let the Mis tribe entered. It turns out that this year’s rainy season has not only came in advance, but the rain is so fierce compared to the past that the caves of some tribes have been flooded. Losing the place they lived in, the tribes have to move away. The Mis tribe is one of them. They can no longer live in the cave where they originally lived and have to find other places to live in the rainy season. Therefore, they can’t help but migrate together. Traveling in the rainy season is an unbearable experience, let alone for females. And so, a female fell ill, and they happened to be near the drifter beastman tribe.
Originally, this meant nothing for the drifter beastman tribe. Towards other tribes, their tribe would not bother with them but unfortunately, this Mis tribe is the tribe that Ryan grew up in. Also, the female that got sick is exactly the same female who almost became Ryan’s partner and let him out to escape1.
Therefore, Ryan can’t just watch the female continue being sick like that. Moreover, that tribe’s current environment is too bad for the patient to recuperate. Having no choice, Ryan told Jason his thought to invite the female to recuperate in their tribe. No one can sit by the side while a female gets sick to his death, so Jason and the others agreed to let the sick female, Leah, into their tribe to recuperate.
Originally, this matter was very simple. They can just wait until Leah gets better and let him leave. However, the weak Leah insisted on asking the drifter beastmen tribe to take in their tribe. Which beastman could resist the female’s tears? What is the difference between rejecting a female’s request and seeing someone dying without saving them? Just like Leah said, the females in their Mis tribe are prone to get sick if they don’t have a place to hide from the rain. In this world, getting sick can easily lead to death.
Beastmen have always been very tolerant of females. If the role changed and it’s a beastman who begged them with the same request, the drifter beastmen could definitely refuse it with cold eyes. But the other party is a delicate and still sick female, hence most people agreed to let the tribe enter. Jason and the others beastmen2 had no choice but to let the tribe in. In the eyes of the drifter beastmen, they are just temporarily letting the tribe spend the rainy season in their tribe. After the rainy season is over, those people will definitely leave to establish their own tribe.
Unfortunately, their thoughts are too simple. A tribe with twice as many beastman as the drifter beastmen tribe entered their territory. At this moment, the drifter beastmen haven’t seen the potential danger.
When the newcomer tribe saw the houses where the drifter beastmen lived and the food they ate, they were still able to look grateful at first. However, this slowly changed. Although the newcomer tribe is staying in the drifter beastman tribe’s houses and eating the food they made, the newcomers maintain a high attitude and felt that everyone in the drifter beastman tribe is lowly.
The female’s side also didn’t get along harmoniously. The newcomer females who were spoiled by their tribe are defiant and self-righteous. They looked down on the females who choose to have a drifter beastman as their partner. Quarrels are common among females. Lais and the others might have good tempers, but it does not mean that they are easily bullied. Although they may not necessarily be bullied, living in such an environment every day will definitely make people feel uncomfortable.
The people from the drifter beastmen tribe started to regret their temporary overflow of sympathy for inviting such troubles. It’s a pity that troubles are easy to invite in but harder to sent away. For the tribe that has no intention of leaving after the rainy season, Jason and the others don’t dare to act rashly. After all, the other party has more people than them. The most important thing is that there are females and cubs in their drifter beastmen tribe. They can’t let their partners get implicated in a dangerous situation. The beastmen really regret it, but there is no way, they can only wait for Patrik and Lin Mu to come back.
Lin Mu went to his home angrily. Then he heard someone arguing in the yard as soon as he walked to the entrance. Quickening his pace, Lin Mu wanted to see what is going on. His temper is over boiling point now, anyone who hits his button can only blame themselves for being unlucky.
“I want to live here, what about it?! Why are you guys able to live in such a spacious place and we have to huddle together instead?” This is an unfamiliar voice.
“You are sure funny. Never mind that this is the home of our tribe leader, you are freeloading in our tribe now. What qualifications do you have to make requests? You can leave if you don’t want to stay in our tribe, no one is keeping you!” Lin Mu heard Huang Yuan’s voice.
“Hmph, want us to leave? Not so easy. These houses are the gift from the beast god to the continent’s beastmen. Now, they are taken by you shameless people. How could we let you tarnish the gift of beast god?!”
As soon as Lin Mu entered the yard, he saw Huang Yuan angrily quarreling with a brown-haired female. When he heard what this female said, Lin Mu is stunned as the amount of information in this sentence is too much!
Huang Yuan, who is already about to explode, realized that Lin Mu has returned. He is very happy to see Lin Mu coming back.
Lin Mu waved his hand to gesture to Huang Yuan not to speak first. He walked toward the other female with a cold face. In the past few years, he has grown a bit taller to 178 cm, but still not as tall as the female in front of him. However, this did not affect his aura in the least.
“I am telling you to scram now!”
The female is obviously frightened by Lin Mu. He hadn’t seen this female(LM), but still, he stubbornly stood his ground. He has always held up/pampered by other people in his tribe. No one dares to talk to him like this.
“What right you have to make me go? I just won’t go.”
Huang Yuan gritted his teeth, “He is the owner of this house and our tribe leader’s partner. Of course he has the right to make you leave.”
“Hmph, he said that this is his house and it’s his? Then I can also say it is mine. I won’t leave anyway, I’m going to live in this house.” The female relied on his identity as a female to act stubborn.
Lin Mu sneered, “I have seen shameless people but never seen one as shameless as you. I really don’t know how your parents can raise you up like this. Throwing away your own face is not enough, you also wanted to throw away your parent’s face.”
Huang Yuan helped to add the insults, “People like him, if he knows what shame is, then it’s not him anymore. He doesn’t even know he is being shameful. Say, how stupid can he be?”
Hearing what they said, the female flushed with anger and shouted, “You bastard, ugly hag! No wonder Ryan would rather choose Leah than you. Leah is a hundred times better than you. As a witch doctor, you want to marry a beastman, how shameless.”
Those words caused Huang Yuan to paused momentarily but he instantly returned to normal. He just about to refute, but Lin Mu already mocked, “I don’t know where your courage comes from. The shameless is fearless indeed. As far as I know, we don’t seem to say anything like wanting to accept you. We just pity you guys and took you in ‘temporarily’. Already freeloading in someone’s home but acted like nothing, fine! But you still want to be ‘doves occupying the magpie’s nest’? Open your eyes and see the reality clearly ba, what an idiot” Lin Mu knew that this person has been used to cause trouble.
The female heard the words and said angrily, “The fact that I want to live in your tribe, that is your glory, humph! What’s the point if the tribe is good? It’s still a drifter beastman tribe. Drifter beastman is drifter beastman, they are always lowly and inferior. And you get married to a drifter beastman, that is really disgusting!” His contemptuous eyes were expressing his disdain clearly.
Lin Mu flipped. Before this, he resisted and tried his best to calm down, but now he is done with it. He stepped forward and gave the female a strong kick. Then, he slapped the female soundly while scolding, “Fcxk you! Who the fcxk you think you are?! Patrik is a thousand times or ten thousand times better than your whatever. Moderfurker, this Lao Tzi doesn’t show off my might and you treat me as Hello Kitty, huh?!”
On one side, Huang Yuan watched Lin Mu pressing down the opponent and his brain went blank for 2 seconds. Then, he came back to his sense and stand on the side, watching the ‘play’ leisurely. En, Lin Mu is really handsome when he is showing his might.
Although the opponent is taller than Lin Mu, his attack level is obviously inferior to Lin Mu. As the result, he was slapped a few times.
“How dare you hit me?!” Since when he suffered such humiliation before?! The female’s expression turned ugly.
Lin Mu kicked his opponent again and retorted, “So what I hit you? In your words, what can you do to me?!” Lin Mu looked at him contemptuously. The female is obviously a man (appearance-wise), but he actually didn’t have the strength to fight back. “What a waste of your height, trash!”
As Huang Yuan watched, he thought in his heart ‘Lin Mu’s words are sure poisonous, but they sounded so nice.’
At this moment, some people came in. When the female saw one of the people, he rushed over and complained aggrievedly. He looked at Lin Mu with bitter eyes as if he was about to eat him.
Lin Mu ignored the female. He let out a sigh and smiled to meet Patrik, “You’re back, where’s Wu Fan?”
Patrik rubbed Lin Mu’s hair fondly, “I asked Lais and the other females to help take care of Wu Fan. Actually, when they heard that you are back, they wanted to come to see you. But I see that we still have something to do so I told them that you will go to see them when you’re done with your things.”
Lin Mu nodded. Indeed, he has things to be busy with. Thinking about it, his face couldn’t help but turn icy. Lin Mu looked at the people who came in with Patrik. There are Jason, Rey, Ryan, and a beastman who he didn’t know. He should be the tribe leader of the newcomers. Ryan kept staring at his room as if he could see through the walls. Lin Mu then discovered that Huang Yuan has unknowingly hidden in his room. Thinking of Huang Yuan’s usual temper, and the fact that he is hiding himself right now, Lin Mu’s gaze turned cold. He looked at Ryan and thought in his heart, ‘Right now, I have something to do, you just wait for it. When I’m free later…’ Then he turned his eyes to look at the stranger tribe leader.
Patrik saw Lin Mu look at the man and said, “He is Bennette, the tribe leader of the Skobul3 tribe.”
Lin Mu greeted the man with a blank face without any expression. On the other side, the female is still making noises, “Bennette, that hateful female dared to beat me. You have to help me teach him a lesson.”
Lin Mu sneered. Let’s not say that he is the tribe leader’s partner, even with his ‘fake’ female4 identity, the other party won’t dare to do anything to him. Asking a beastman to teach a female a lesson, can this person be stupider?
“Entering someone’s house without the consent of others is not something a good female should do. Whoever beastman marries you, it would be a disaster for them.” Lin Mu says but directed an unsmiling smile to the beastman named Bennette.
Although this person hasn’t spoken and even carried a smile on his face, Lin Mu feels that this person is dangerous, which naturally makes him extremely disgusted.
Bennette didn’t say anything. He didn’t say to help the female, nor revealing any attitude towards Lin Mu’s statement. The fact that beastman doesn’t participate in the quarrel between the females, his action is not wrong, but in Lin Mu’s opinion, he somehow sees it as Bennette giving the female free rein to make trouble.
Lin Mu stepped forward, “Tribe leader Bennette?”
“En.” Bennette smiled and nodded.
Lin Mu gave the man an unsmiling smile again before saying, “As a tribe leader of a tribe, you can’t even control your people. I really doubt the necessity of you as a tribe leader.” Lin Mu admitted that he is being deliberate. He wanted to test this Bennette beastman.
Hearing what Lin Mu said, Bennette’s face stiffened for a moment, but immediately changed to a smile, “I’m sorry for the trouble Irey has caused you.” He calmed down the female, Irey, who is about to get angry, and added, “But it’s not suitable for me to intervene in conflicts between females.”
Lin Mu smiled, “That’s what I said. Just that I felt it’s really your misfortune to have such stupid people in the tribe.” He shook his head pretending to be regretful.
Lin Mu’s words made Irey furious, but because Bennette is there, he had to obediently leave. It seems that Bennette also knows his(I) existence will make things worse.
Lin Mu saw that the annoying person is gone and walked up to Bennette. With a smile, he said, “The rainy season is over. When you plan to leave and rebuild your tribe?”
“En, there are 2 females in our tribe who are still sick. I planned to leave when they get better. After all, weak females are not suitable for long journeys.”
“Yes, I didn’t mean to drive you away” [I just really wanted to drive you away] Lin Mu thought to himself. Still smiling, he added, “After all, as a tribe leader, you need to have a tribe of your own, right? ”
Lin Mu’s words are absolutely piercing. Seeing that the other party only smiled and nodded in agreement with his statement, as if he didn’t understand his subtext, Lin Mu smiled for the last time and said, “It’s nice to meet you, Bennette. My name is Lin Mu.”
“Tribe leader Patrik’s female, I am also glad to meet you.”
Lin Mu didn’t intend to continue the nonsense with the man here. Turning to Patrik, he said with a relaxed expression, “You guys talk, I’m tired and will go take a rest first.”
“Alright, go to sleep for a while. Leave it to me to clean the house.” Patrik felt very sorry for his partner. After traveling for so many days, Lin Mu must be terribly upset to encounter such a problematic thing upon returning.
Lin Mu went into his room. Even though they left for so long, their house seemed well taken care of. It seems that someone came to clean the house after they left. Although he is very tired, he doesn’t have any intention to rest. The main reason why he wanted to go into his room is to see the Huang Yuan who is currently hiding. Never knew that there will be a day where there’s a third party appearing between them5. Lin Mu thought it was funny, but thinking that it happened to his friend, Lin Mu can’t laugh anymore.
Just as Patrik led the men into the living room, Lin Mu stretched out his head and said to Patrik, “My dear, we have to celebrate our return. I planned to invite our tribe people to a barbecue at our house. Would you mind?” Lin Mu did that deliberately. He had absolutely no interest in asking people from Bennette and his tribe over to spoil his appetite.
Hearing Lin Mu’s words, Patrik replied, “As long as you like it.”
“I know you are the best!” Flirting in broad daylight didn’t cause the two to feel any psychological burden at all6.
In the evening, everyone gathered and looked happy to see Patrik and Lin Mu’s return. After all, the tribe leader and backbone of their tribe have returned. Lin Mu looked at everyone in front of him. He really didn’t want to spoil everyone’s appetite, but the anger in his heart couldn’t be put out.
It is apparent to Patrik that Lin Mu looked angry. He is furious too. He motioned the noisy crowd to silent. Although Patrik has always been expressionless, but everyone can see that he is angry right now and everyone knows why.
“You did not protect our tribe.”
Patrik’s words didn’t carry any emotions, but they made everyone very guilty.
Lin Mu looked at the depressed people and said coldly, “The easy life these years seems to make you forget who you are. Drifter beastman!”
“You are THE drifter beastman. No matter what you have, your identity is still the drifter beastman! The burdens that the word ‘drifter’ makes you carry, you seem to have forgotten all about that. You forget! Forget that you are the public enemy of all the tribes on the mainland. Why did I try my best to find such a hidden place for you to live in? What qualifications do you have, you who should have learned to escape from the world, to overflow with compassion?!”
Lin Mu’s words are hard to their ears, but they are facts. Why did they choose such a hidden place to live? Isn’t it to avoid other tribes? But now, they let other people into their tribe!
The barbecue continued, but everyone felt like they are chewing wax. If Patrik’s words made them feel guilty, Lin Mu’s words woke them up. They realized that they could never get along with ordinary tribes. Lin Mu is a special existence in their tribe and is their spiritual pillar. They all know that the life they enjoyed today is given by Lin Mu. And now, they have finally realized how dangerous their action was.
Lin Mu looked at Jason and Rey in front of him, “You guys disappointed me very much.”
Not wanting to say more, Lin Mu turned around and left after speaking.
At night, Lin Mu lay in Patrik’s arms, “Ai, I’m worried.”
“It’s alright, I’m here.”
“En.” Lin Mu nuzzled against Patrik’s chest. “That Bennette guy makes me very upset. He is not an impulsive person. The calmer he is, the more dangerous he will be. When I heard what the female said earlier, I know that someone with his low intelligence will not be able to think out something like the house in our tribe are gifted by the beast god to the beastman tribe. This kind of thought must have been taught by someone, and we both know who this person is.”
Patrik stroked Lin Mu’s back, “Don’t worry, nothing will happen.” He gently kissed Lin Mu’s forehead, “Sleep early ba.”
The author has something to say:
In the middle of stockpiling
Banana: Does the chapter makes you angry? If yes, remember that Banana felt the same every time I read the lines and I have to read it at least 4 times during translation process. I never did it before but I had to listen to some calming songs and drink cold water while translating this chapter _(;3/
Btw, if you want to ask why didn’t LM’s tribe retaliate, please remember that the newcomers have twice their number _(;3/
