Chapter 97 Danger
More than 10 days later, the beastman who left with their child and partner all returned by themselves. According to them, the females who had left bumped into each other so they decided to go out to play; not planning to come back anytime soon.
Time is still passing, their everyday life is still dull day by day, and the females from the Skobul tribe are relatively peaceful. Lin Mu didn’t know if he is thinking too much, or this is just the peace before the rainstorm.
On this day, Patrik is not at home, and he who is feeling upset, walked along a path to relax. Before Lin Mu knew it, he walked a long way from his house. Looking around, he realized that he is at a place he rarely visits.
“Hmm, is that?” Lin Mu saw a strange plant and walked nearer the grass to check it out.
He is about to get up after looking but immediately hid in the grass when he saw the 2 beastman coming from far away. There is just a little smelly grass growing in this patch of grasses, which could cover up his smell, but at the same time is suffocating him. Lin Mu clutched his nose and listened hard to the conversation between 2 beastman not far away. It’s Bennette and a beastman that Lin Mu didn’t know, he should be a beastman from another tribe.
“You, go to the Leopard tribe and tell Archie this. If he wants to get Ria back, today is the best time. Ask him to bring his men over.”
Before this, Bennette contacted many tribe leaders he knows about taking over the drifter beastman tribe. But those tribe leaders who have led their tribe for many years naturally have more wisdom than ordinary people. They won’t be tricked by his words about something called houses being bestowed by the beast god and is currently occupied by the drifter beastmen. Nor Bennette’s words about redeeming the glory of the beast god, saying that they should take the house back and not let these drifter beastman defile the miracle given by the beast god. In their opinion, all things in this world have cause and effect, and the person who arranges all of this is naturally their supreme beast god. If those so-called houses are really a miracle bestowed by the beast god, how can He let the drifter beastman tribe occupied it for so long? Also, their oracle has never received any message from the beast god about the house, which only means that the thing called house is owned by the drifter beastman tribe and that is the beast god’s intent. Moreover, those drifter beastman have already formed a tribe. No matter how much the people Bennette sent emphasized that the drifter beastman should not tarnish the gift, they can’t simply attack another tribe, albeit formed by a group of drifter beastman. Otherwise, what is the difference between them and other evil drifter beastmen who attack other tribes? The most important thing is that this drifter beastman tribe is not established in their tribe’s territory, so they don’t even have the right to expel them.
Bennette is not discouraged by this result. To start with, the beastmen on his side is more than the drifter beastman tribe’s people. The reason for inviting foreign aid is just to minimize the damage on his side and increase the possibility of winning the drifter beastman tribe. He doesn’t need a lot of support from outsiders, but it is best to find a tribe to cooperate with him. Finally, he successfully contacted the leopard tribe closest to this valley. This so-called ‘closest’ is a relative term, as the leopard tribe is on the side of the rolling mountain.
The reason why the leopard tribe came is because of Ria. Ria used to be the leopard tribe’s witch doctor and the current tribe leader is the beastman that Ria loved before — Archie. Archie felt sorry for Ria at first because he did like Ria, but at the time he was asked to choose between the tribe and Ria. Archie felt that he is going to be the leader of the tribe in the future which means he is responsible for the entire tribe. Hence, he struggled between his responsibility for everyone in the tribe and Ria. Archie comforted himself in his heart that he shouldn’t give up the whole tribe just for his love, so he finally chose to give up Ria. Of course, the reason he used to comfort himself is a laughable one! Archie still missed Ria. When Bennette said that Ria is in the drifter beastman tribe and gave birth to his child, then was forced to become a drifter beastman’s companion, Archie agreed to cooperate with Bennette.
Bennette instructed the beastman to go to the leopard tribe to find Archie. The beastman hesitated, “But… tribe leader, Ria is not in the tribe anymore, this…”
“But he doesn’t know, does he?”
“Tribe leader…” The beastman hesitated, “Isn’t this wrong?”
Bennette glared at the beastman who looked like it’s unbearable with cold eyes, “Who is the tribe leader here?! Now, go!”
After hearing what they said, Lin Mu is very anxious. Patrik and Jason went out hunting today and these people actually planned to use this absence to deal with the people in the drifter beastman tribe. He wanted to inform everyone as soon as possible. Lin Mu paid careful attention to Bennette’s actions. He waited for Bennette to leave before telling everyone to be prepared for the incoming attack. When the other party is about to leave, Lin Mu got suddenly taken aback by the insects that appeared next to him. He only moved a little but he realized that Bennette’s eyes are looking over in his direction. Lin Mu knew that he must have been found, and immediately ran away.
Bennette watched as Lin Mu ran away. Smiled weirdly, he then moved to catch up with Lin Mu. He is not in a hurry. This game of cat and mouse is very interesting, isn’t it?
How could Lin Mu’s speed be comparable to a beastman? So he realized that Bennette is teasing him. His heart almost jumped out of his chest from the run. Watching as this man gets closer and closer, Lin Mu has no strength left and he has to stop. Leaning on a tree with his back, Lin Mu panted and glared at the person in front of him in resentment, “You found out that I was there from the start!”
Bennette smiled, “You have underestimated the sense of hearing of a beastman. I heard you the moment you planned to hide in the grass.”
“You really are a bastard. We kindly took you in but not only you are not grateful, you wanted to harm us in return!” Guessing is one thing, and hearing about the truth with his own ears is another. It made Lin Mu felt furious.
“I am the tribe leader of a tribe, so I have to think for my tribe and make my tribe better. There’s nothing wrong with it!”
“High-sounding rubbish! Don’t find excuses for your incompetency!” Lin Mu felt that this person is really disgusting.
Bennette stared at the person in front of him. Ever since he heard about this female, an idea has been imprinted in his heart; he must obtain him! Only this person deserves to be his partner.
“You always talk so bad to me, but I still like you very much.”
Hearing Bennette’s words, Lin Mu’s expression turned ugly, as if he had swallowed dead flies.
“Pei (spit)! It’s disgusting to be liked by someone like you!”
Bennette’s face instantly became cold, “You will definitely be my partner!”
“Even if I die, I won’t be with someone like you!”
“It’s not up to you,” Bennette said with a twisted expression.
“What’s so good Patrik? He is just a drifter beastman and his achievements today all came from you. I am better than him, why don’t you choose me?!”
Hehe, Lin Mu sneered, “Choose you? Why? So that I can disgust myself? Let me tell you. In my heart, you cannot be compared even with the nail on Patrik’s little finger!”
Lin Mu agitated Bennette while his gaze swept around, calculating the possibility of escape.
“You didn’t like me. You just saw that Patrik can build his tribe so well, while your tribe has to lodge under people’s roof from charity. You are jealous. You are jealous of Patrik because you know that you are not as capable as him!”
Perhaps Bennette got over-agitated, he laughed instead. But what he said was extraordinarily evil, “Since you like him so much, I will let you watch him die in front of you with your own eyes. Say, if I caught you and threatened him to commit suicide, will he die for you? Hahaha…”
Hearing that, Lin Mu understood what Bennette wanted to do and his face instantly turned pale.
He definitely couldn’t let Bennette catch him and threaten Patrik. Seeing the man coming towards him to catch him, watching him get closer and closer, Lin Mu suddenly raised his arm and said, “Da Jin, bite him!”
Bennette saw a golden flash of light shooting at him and instinctively blocked it with his arm.
Lin Mu took advantage of this opportunity and ran away.
“Damn it!” Looking at the teeth marks of a poisonous snake on his arm, Bennett saw that the poisonous snake has disappeared, and Lin Mu is frantically running away. He immediately chased after Lin Mu regardless of the other matters.
Lin Mu ran wildly without a specific direction. He had only one thought in his mind, that is he absolutely couldn’t be caught. He didn’t know where he ran to in panic, but his feet suddenly stepped on empty space and he fell into a hole, “AHH!”
Bennette heard the shout and saw that it is from a hole that appeared on the flat ground. The hole is so narrow and he wouldn’t be able to get in due to his body size. He found a small stone and threw it in. There isn’t any echo. It seemed that this strange hole is quite deep.
“Since you don’t want to follow me, then go and die!” As Bennette said that, he moved a big rock and placed it on top of the hole before leaving.
Let’s talk about the battlefield that has already begun here.
When Patrik and the other beastmen returned, they saw beastmen fighting in the sky above the valley and also on the ground. Because of the disadvantage of the number of people, their beastman had it worst. Hence, the drifter beastmen who just returned immediately joined the battle.
“These bastards, I wanted to beat them a long time ago. Finally, I have a chance today.” Damon gritted his teeth.
These drifter beastmen have been restraining themselves for too long!
Coincidentally, Damon met Archie. After knowing each other’s identity, the men flushed with anger. This is a scene of enemies bumping into each other.
“Bastard, today I will beat you to death for Ria and Snowe’s sake!” Damon wanted to teach Archie a lesson for a long time. If it weren’t for Ria’s objection and that their tribe is not suitable to invite trouble, he would have rushed to the leopard tribe to ask for a duel.
“Drifter beastman, return Ria to me!”
The two fought without hesitation with the intention to kill.
The fight is not a win-or-lose duel. They will fight until blood splatters on the ground. No one will retreat, and the beastman who is fighting to protect his tribe will definitely not retreat!
Patrik beat his opponent to the point where he could not fight back. Then he immediately went to find Lin Mu. He is worried about Lin Mu’s safety and wondered if he is still at home at this moment. Patrik arrived home and called out for Lin Mu many times, but no reply. He even went to the cellar but still couldn’t find him. Patrik got flustered. Where did Lin Mu go? Where is Lin Mu? What happened to his Lin Mu?
Patrik ran out of their home frantically, looking for Lin Mu.
