Chapter 90 Island tribe
Lin Mu and Patrik finally went to their tribe, because Fony said, “You have to be careful when you went out on a trip by yourself. You must pay attention to your safety. The tide will be high at night on the beach, and the beasts will come out to hunt too. I think it’s better for you to go to our tribe, at least it’s relatively safe.”
Considering that he is bringing an adult (LM) and a child (WF) with him, Patrik took Fony’s offer to go to their tribe. The purpose of this trip is for Lin Mu to come out and see the sea. (Actually, his main purpose is to eat seafood ^_^)1 Hence, going to Fony’s tribe does not hinder their purpose.
On the way, Lin Mu was surprised to hear from Butz that their tribe is located on an island in the sea. In fact, it’s a nice coincidence that they can meet their group today because their adult beastman usually fishes in the deep sea. Just that the deep sea is always full of various dangers, and the sea creatures have bodies far larger than the beastman. So when they want to teach their young beastman some hunting skills, they usually choose relatively safe offshore. The coastline is quite long, so one has to say, it is a nice coincidence that Lin Mu and Patrik can meet these beastmen.
Butz and Burton, these 2 small beastmen, are trying their best to praise how good their tribe is while flying next to Patrik, hoping that Lin Mu could stay longer. Both of them made small plans in their hearts, hoping that maybe their father can learn some cooking skills from Lin Mu so that they can eat good food. As for why they are counting on their father to learn cooking, instead of their dad, the two children can only sigh that their father didn’t manage to get a female like Uncle Lin Mu. But how many people can have such good luck to meet a good female like Uncle Lin Mu? On the other hand, the two expressed that they still love their dad very much.
“Uncle Lin Mu, our tribe is very beautiful. To tell you a secret, I found a pretty place and it is my secret base. I haven’t told anyone about it. I will take you there someday, the scenery looks pretty.” Butz revealed the secret to express that he liked Lin Mu very much.
Burton listened and snorted from the side. Then he said to Lin Mu, “I also know a place that looked beautiful, and I will take you there too.”
Lin Mu chuckled and thought these two little guys are really cute. Also, he can’t help praising that good food is really a good way to bring people closer.
“Alright, I’m looking forward to it.”
Both children are happy, and Butz suddenly thought, “Burton, why didn’t you tell me about the nice place you found?”
Burton glanced at Butz, and said angrily, “You didn’t tell me about your secret base either.”
Butz couldn’t understand the anger and explained, “But, it’s my secret base so I can’t tell other people casually like that. You didn’t say that your place is a secret base so why didn’t you tell me about it?”
Burton decided to ignore the idiot.
It is already dark when they arrived at the tribe. Lin Mu’s eyesight is incomparable to Patrik’s, but he could still tell that the island is quite huge. With dense green forests, it is really a very suitable place to live. They landed nearby a campfire, which seemed that everyone just had a meal together.
“You all eat together at night?” Lin Mu asked Butz next to him.
“En, it’s more fun for everyone to eat together.”
Lin Mu looked at the bonfire in the empty space thoughtfully, wondering whether his tribe could set a fixed interval for a bonfire party. It looked very interesting.
Their arrival attracted everyone’s attention. York brought Lin Mu and Patrik to their tribe leader to introduce them, while Yitz and Fony were to look for their partner to show off the grilled fish skill they just learned. The tall tribe leader with a white beard enthusiastically introduced Patrik and Lin Mu in front of the crowd and explained that they will temporarily stay in their tribe for some time. Hearing that, the people in the tribe welcomed them warmly.
After they said hello, Patrik and Lin Mu followed York to their barbecue spot. Because Fony, York, and Yitz’s family have a good relationship, their grilling spot is next to each other. Lin Mu carried the baby to where they were and saw Butz eating more fish. Isn’t this kid full already?
Lin Mu got acquainted with the females of the 3 beastman. There is also a female baby in York’s family, who is very cute and currently being held by York’s partner. Little Wu Fan who is in Lin Mu’s arms curiously looked at the baby who is about his size.
York’s female partner is called Lisa. Noticing little Wu Fan looking at his child, Lisa smiled and said to Lin Mu, “Your baby is so cute and his clothes looked nice also.”
Because of the hot weather, Lin Mu only let Wu Fan wear a dudou. His pale skin looked tender and soft, it makes people like to look at him.
“The clothes are made of fabrics produced in our tribe. They are soft and suitable for female babies.”
“En, animal skin is too hot to wear, and it is not soft enough.” Lisa hopes that his baby can wear clothes made of this fabric too, but she is embarrassed to say it. After all, Lin Mu only came out for fun and will not bring an extra cloth. If not, at least he could exchange things with him for the cloth. York understood what his partner is thinking, and he loves his son very much, but there is nothing he can do about it.
Lin Mu saw that Lisa wanted to make this kind of clothes for his children too, but he did not bring any extra fabric on this trip. On second thought, Lin Mu thought of the cloth in the bag that is supposed to be used as a towel and said, “I still have a small cloth. It’s enough to make a dudou for your baby. Dudou is what my baby is wearing.”
Lisa’s eyes lit up when he heard it, but he refused Lin Mu’s offer because it’s uncomfortable to accept things from other people like that.
“Just take it first. A dudou is comfortable for your baby.”
Lisa is about to refuse again but at this moment, little Wu Fan said, “Papa, hungry.” So, Lin Mu simply gave Lisa the cloth and went to cook for little Wu Fan.
Lisa held the cloth and feeling the soft sensation makes him happy. In his heart, he decided that he couldn’t take Lin Mu’s things and not giving anything in return. Tomorrow, he will ask York to hunt the best whitebait fish for Lin Mu.
The cloth that Lisa got everyone curious. They have long stared at Lin Mu’s clothes and found it quite strange. Now that Lisa got a piece of the cloth, they wanted to check it out, so the piece of cloth is passed around to others. People who get to touch the cloth expressed that they liked this soft sensation, especially when they felt that it must be cool to wear in summer.
Butz and the other beastmen are also curious about new things like cloth, but they didn’t like it as much as females. What he cares most about is food. Watching the baby eating the stir-fried shrimps Lin Mu left for him, Butz drools silently on the side.
“I can’t take it, I’m going to catch shrimps/prawns2.” Butz didn’t like to eat shrimps before this. In his opinion, shrimps have only small pieces of meat so it’s not enjoyable, unlike fish where he could take large mouthfuls of meat. But since eating various kinds of crustacean dishes made by Lin Mu, he has fallen in love with this kind of food.
“I’ll go too.” Burton voiced out.
Father – Yitz
Dad – Li Wen
Son – Butz
Father – Fony
Dad – Wen Ni
Son – Burton
Father – York
Dad – Lisa
Son (female) – Yin Yao
Yitz and Fony’s partners, Li Wen and Wen Ni ate the food grilled by their partner and they liked it. Li Wen said to Lin Mu, “Yitz’s grilled fish today is very delicious, thank you so much.”
Wen Ni: “En, the fish that Fony grilled is also delicious.”
Lin Mu smiled and said, “It’s nothing.” After that, Lin Mu gave some of the stir fry shrimp to Lisa’s baby Yin Yao. He can’t just let the baby watch by the side.
Lisa thanked Lin Mu again and was surprised that Lin Mu could cook such delicious food.
Butz and Burton came back with a lot of prawns. It seems that these 2 little guys are determined to eat until they are bloated. They don’t dare to ask Lin Mu to help them cook again, so they just ask Lin Mu’s permission to use his kitchen utensils. They can’t make complicated dishes, but they can at least cook the steamed brine prawns, and get some garlic juice to eat it. It’s the easiest dish to make.
When Lin Mu asked Patrik to take out the utensils, the people in the tribe get curious again; wondering if the tribes on the other side of the sea are so advanced now because they have made so many utensils. But the beastmen who went out to gain experience has never seen these in other tribes either.
The prawns cooked by the 2 little guys with some help from Lin Mu is quite successful, and they were distributed to everyone to taste. The batch of prawns that they thought is not enough is really not enough in the end. Hence, another beastman went down to the sea to catch more prawns, satisfying the females’ desire to eat more.
“I didn’t expect prawns to be so delicious. I have seen this ‘garlic’ too in the mountain. I’m going to get some more tomorrow.” Li Wen said.
His son, Butz nodded as he ate, “You have to pick more, Dad. There are other ways to cook shrimps/prawns, and those are more delicious!”
Hearing Butz’s words make many people look forward to their next meal.
That evening, everyone had a rare amazing meal and was very satisfied.
The people in Fony’s tribe live in tents. Like Lin Mu make the tent, their tents are made of animal skins too, but the shape is simpler; like a cone. However, due to the current hot summer and the good weather today, it won’t be raining at night. Therefore, everyone decided to sleep outside the tent. They simply find a comfortable spot to rest, and then burn some mosquito-repellent grass to sleep comfortably until the next morning.
Lin Mu packed up the tent and put the things in place. Then he went to a clean spot to put the blanket and went to sleep like others did. Because they didn’t sleep in the tent, the mosquito nets they carried were not used.
The next morning, Lin Mu woke up and finally saw the island clearly. There is a mountain in the distance that is not very high. The rest of the land was flat so there aren’t any volcanoes nearby. The scenery on the island is really good. Greenery fills the entire island, and the air is naturally good in such a place.
For breakfast, Lin Mu cooked some white porridge, while Patrik hunted a few small animals on the island to grill them. Of course, fish became the main meat. Lin Mu doesn’t like to eat greasy food in the morning, so he made a vegetable dish for himself and add a few meat pieces, while Patrik ate grilled meat and grilled fish. Lin Mu thought of the gluttonous child, Butz, so he coated some of the fish that Patrik hadn’t finished eating with flour and fried some fish fillets.
The scent of fried fish was unbearable for everyone, but they can’t ask for it naturally like Butz. Hence, they can only smell it a few more times, [Ah! How can it be so fragrant?!]
Because of the limited oil supply, Lin Mu can’t make so many deep-fried foods, so he can only pretend he didn’t notice the look at those longing eyes [Feel so guilty!]
Patrik smiled and told Lin Mu that he is going to land with Fony this afternoon to see if he could hunt other prey to store some oil. To be honest, Lin Mu doesn’t like to use animal oil very much. He felt that animal oil is not as healthy as vegetable oil, but it is undeniable that food fried with animal oil is really fragrant. He is not omnipotent; making vegetable oil is out of his hands.
To be able to eat delicious fried fish upon waking up in the morning, Butz and Burton feel very happy. The only regret is they don’t have enough to eat and have to share it with other children.
Patrik went out hunting with the beastman in the tribe, while Lin Mu got dragged by the females to go to the mountains to find food. Because they heard that the ingredients that Lin Mu added to the food to make them delicious are made of fruits or plants, they started treasure hunting.
The products on the island are really rich. Lin Mu found a lot of condiments, and also found a lot of edible vegetables like wood ear fungus, and mushrooms. He also luckily found a few bamboo shoots, so the harvest is quite abundant. The females who came out together also returned with a load of ingredients. Moreover, they also found the fruit used to make vinegar and soy sauce.
After they went back, the females gathered together to listen to Lin Mu teaching them how to use these things. When it’s possible, Lin Mu also made the dishes and lets them taste the food. The females were satisfied with the taste. They unanimously decided to get their partner (or father) to make a set of kitchen utensils, as well as those convenient tableware. However, chopsticks are really hard to use!
