Chapter 93 Leaving
Lin Mu and Patrik entered the tribe leader’s tent and saw the old man drinking tea. Of course, this tea is only available after Lin Mu came to their tribe. “Tribe leader Moss, I have something to discuss with you.”
When the Tribe leader Moss saw Lin Mu and his partner, he greeted them with a smile and invited them to come in. Lin Mu’s arrival has brought a lot of delicacies to their tribe. For example, the tea that he likes to drink is made by Lin Mu. Thinking about the other foods, he is, no doubt, happy to meet Lin Mu.
“What do you want to tell me?” Moss took out some fruits to entertain the guest. But of course, only Lin Mu likes to eat fruits, so it is obvious who Moss is biased to.
“It’s about building a wooden house.” After Lin Mu saw the puzzled look on Tribe leader Moss’s face, he then explained about the wooden house.
The more Moss listened, the excited he becomes. His eyes brightened at first, and then he smiled until his eyes cannot be seen. He simply can’t believe it but felt delighted at the same time that they will live be able to stay in such a house in their tribe. Moss wanted to thank Lin Mu the most, he couldn’t imagine how many people will be willing to pass on this important skill to other tribes.
When they finished talking about how to organize the manpower and other house-building matters, tribe leader Moss stroked his beard and said, “Lin Mu, you are such a kind and good boy ah.”
Lin Mu smiled embarrassedly and said nothing.
The next day, everyone started moving to build a house. Towards this wooden house they heard about, the entire tribe is looking forward to the day of completion.
Their tribe is called the Hayes tribe, which is one of the ocean tribes. Its size is only considered to be medium. Due to the ocean is large and there are many islands on the sea, the ocean tribes don’t have competition between them for the right of island residence. As for food supply, the ocean is so big, whoever has the ability to hunt in the sea will naturally have food, and there is enough food for them in this sea. Therefore, the ocean tribes’ life is relatively comfortable. Although the sea beasts are very dangerous, but for those who hunt in the sea all year round, it’s still fine. It may be difficult for them to fight with the sea beasts, they still escape from them with no problem.
Lin Mu’s suggestion is to build a wooden house to see first, and then they can build another wooden house based on it if there’s no problem with the first one.
They have enough people in the tribe and the efficiency of the construction is amazing. So, the house is built in just 3 days. The wooden house Lin Mu asked them to build is the traditional type where everything is made of wood; like the floor, wall, and roof. The wooden boards used to build the house are brushed with tung oil. It is moisture-proof and anti-corrosion, which is very good.
They discovered tung trees when they went out to play on the outer islands. There are a lot of tung trees on that island, and the seeds are very large. Thinking of tung oil, Lin Mu tried to extract the oil from the seed. Although the oil yield rate is not high due to the manual process, the seeds are big enough and available in a large amount. Hence, they managed to get enough oil to coat the house.
After the house is built, people in the tribe gathered around to watch and sighed in admiration. Thinking that they would be able to stay in such a building, they couldn’t help but look forward to the future.
Lisa stood beside Lin Mu and sighed, “To be able to live in such a good place, it’s so nice.” His York has helped to build the house so Lisa went into the house and looked around. He felt that it would be a nice experience to stay in one, and Lisa thinks he should get York to build their house as soon as possible. It is best if they can move into the new house before the rainy season. Of course, he is confident that they could achieve that. His York is very capable, he has always known that.
Wen Ni leaned against his partner, “This house is really good. I feel happy to think that we can live in this kind of house in the future. Lin Mu and his tribe are so amazing, they can invent a house like this!”
Fony agrees with his partner and admires Lin Mu and their tribe in his heart.
As for the little guys in the tribe, they are running and playing in the wooden house right now. The structure of the wooden house is simple. Upon entering the house, one can see the living room. There is a room on each side of the living room. The space in the wooden house is large, which is convenient for the beastmen.
The tribespeople gathered around Lin Mu and thanked him for teaching them the skills of building a house. They gave their gratitude from the deepest of their heart. Lin Mu really didn’t know how to deal with this situation and everyone is so enthusiastic. Fortunately, the tribe leader saved him in time. Then, Lin Mu immediately pulled Patrik and ran away from the encirclement. Next, Lin Mu taught the people how to make beds and cabinets and finally, informed them about his leave.
The people in the Hayes tribe felt reluctant to part with Lin Mu and his family, but they can’t keep them as Lin Mu wanted to go back before the rainy season starts. So, they can only wave goodbye in the end.
Tribe leader Moss said to Patrik, “You will always be friends of our Hayes tribe. We welcome you to come to our tribe at any time.”
Lin Mu also felt a bit sad about the parting, but he missed his friends in the tribe and missed his home as well.
Waving goodbye to the people in the tribe, Lin Mu hugged the sad little Wu Fan and sat on Patrik’s beast form, “We will come to play when we have time.”
Flying high in the sky and looking at the people waving farewell on the island below, Lin Mu said to Patrik, “Let’s go home.”
The people on the island only disperse after Lin Mu’s figure cannot be seen anymore. To be honest, they know about the existence of the drifter beastmen. So when they saw Patrik’s beast form, they realized that Patrik is the drifter beastman they had heard of. But for a drifter beastman who had his own partner and children, they only see Patrik as a kind person. Yes, even with the saying that drifter beastman is citizens abandoned by beast god, but in their eyes, kindness is kindness. Moreover, the tribespeople has never seen the beast god before. Whether drifter beastman is really abandoned or not, who knows. The people in the Hayes tribe are more direct with their beliefs. They believe what they see. A harmless person will not become evil just by being labeled as a drifter beastman.
On this day, Lin Mu sat on Patrik’s body and flew in the air. Looking at the little Wu Fan who is asleep in his arms, he couldn’t help sighing. Little Wu Fan was dejected about leaving his little friend. Lin Mu coaxed him and said that they are going home, and he will meet a lot of people when they go home. Then he can also make new friends there. Apart from that, Lin Mu said will take him to the Hayes tribe when they have time. When that time comes, he will be able to see Yin Yao and the others again. Although the little guy stopped crying, he was still unhappy after a few days. Lin Mu has to think about how to make his baby becomes happy again. Alas, raising a child is really not easy.
After flying for more than 10 days, Lin Mu felt that the sunlight today is too harsh, so he said to Patrik, “Let’s find a place to rest. The sunlight is too strong!”
Patrik felt uncomfortable too under this kind of exposure. Thinking that Lin Mu is more afraid of the sun than him, Patrik swiftly flew into the woods. After placing the blanket, he gently put down the little Wu Fan. Patrik saw that Lin Mu’s face has turned red from the sun, and touched Lin Mu’s face distressedly. He asked, “Does it hurt?”
Lin Mu held Patrik’s hand and stared at this man who felt sorry for him. Smiling, he replied, “I’m fine, just felt hot. It doesn’t hurt.”
Patrik quickly took out some water to give Lin Mu a drink, and then asked, “Aren’t you tired? Do you want to take a break?”
Lin Mu smiled, “I’ve been sitting on you all the time. It’s you who are flying, why would I feel tired? Here, drink some water too.” As he said, Lin Mu handed the bamboo tube containing water to Patrik’s mouth to feed him water.
After the two sweetly drank the water, they sat down and chatted softly, until that they heard the sound of Wu Fan waking up. Lin Mu looked at the little guy who is rubbing his eyes and he wiped his face with a soaked towel to make him sober. If it wasn’t for the lack of water, Lin Mu would like to wipe Wu Fan’s body so that he would feel more comfortable.
Since the baby is awake, Lin Mu feeds him some coconut milk. Compared to plain water, the little guy prefers this instead. Then he took out the snacks like dried fish that he made and let little Wu Fan eat by himself. After serving the young, Lin Mu went to take care of the adult. Taking out the grilled meat leftover in the morning, Lin Mu handed it to Patrik and said, “Although it is not time for lunch, you should have some first after flying for so long.”
“How about you? Are you hungry?”
Lin Mu shook his head. It is too hot, he doesn’t have much appetite to eat.
“I’ll just eat a fruit.”
Patrik nodded. He knew Lin Mu’s appetite, so while eating, Patrik thought about what food he would bring back later.
As Lin Mu is eating fruit, he paid attention to Wu Fan who is eating obediently by himself. The family of 3 is resting quietly when suddenly…
“Bear bear! Bear bear…” Little Wu Fan’s voice sounded very cheerful.
Lin Mu followed the little guy’s gaze, and saw a little brown bear happily running over, “Rick?” Little bears generally looked alike, Lin Mu doesn’t know if it’s the one they met before, so he looked inquiringly at Patrik.
Patrik nodded, “It’s that little guy. It’s him, but I don’t sense Tru nearby.”
“This little guy should have run out randomly.”
As the pair are talking, Little Bear Rick had already run to Wu Fan’s side. Little Wu Fan is obviously delighted to see Rick, and he laughed happily. Then the little bear jumped directly on Little Wu Fan’s body and licked him.
Lin Mu only finds it amusing to look at. The main thing is Rick is in his bear form. The scene where Rick licks little Wu Fan looked like a puppy licking its owner, so Lin Mu felt nothing. But it is different in Patrik’s eyes. This little guy is a beastman, and his little female is being taken advantage of by a beastman. Patrik narrowed his eyes dangerously, then picked up the bear and threw it out. Dare to take advantage of my son, you are seeking death!
When the little bear got thrown away, Wu Fan thought his father is playing a game. Clapping his hands happily, Wu Fan said to his father, “Fly fly, I want to fly fly too.”
Tru arrived just in time to see his son hit the tree beside him. He looked at his son and the little female. Alright, he understood what happened.
Lin Mu apologized to Tru and said, “Patrik… he” Lin Mu actually wanted to say ‘he didn’t mean it’ but couldn’t say it. Nevertheless, Lin Mu felt sorry for throwing his son out.
Tru smiled and said, “It’s okay, this little bastard must be taking advantage of Wu Fan again.”
Hearing what he said, Lin Mu realized something and thought of the problem that so-called females here cannot casually be touched (like the real females in his world), but they are still children. Does Patrik have to go that far?
What Lin Mu didn’t know is for any beastman who has a small female at home, they will beat up the beastman who coveted his baby, no matter if that beastman is his ‘son-in-law’ in the future, en, they don’t have this kind of address at the moment. But as a father, the beastman will definitely teach that beastman a lesson. If the female’s family has any beastman siblings, then the young beastmen will join the beating-future-bro-in-law together. Throwing him out is definitely the lightest attack. Due to the other party is still young and has not turned into human form yet, Patrik didn’t get serious with his actions. At the moment, Lin Mu still does not have a deep understanding of the preciousness of females.
Lin Mu greeted the father and son pair and invited them to sit down together.
“It’s so nice to see you again.”
Tru looked at the excited little bear playing with little Wu Fan, “So are we.” Then, Tru shifted to look at Patrik and asked, “You are going back?”
Don’t ask why he is not asking the easy-going Lin Mu but the wooden-faced Patrik. Chatting with a female in front of his partner is simply asking for a fight. Hence, avoiding misunderstanding is absolutely important between the beastman.
Patrik nodded, “We are going back to our tribe for the rainy season.”
Concerned about how the father and son pair spending the rainy season, Lin Mu asked, “What about you? What are your plans with Little Bear?”
“Just like before, I planned to look for a cave.”
Lin Mu didn’t know what to say after hearing that. Many beastman spent their rainy season like this. As for searching for a cave, Lin Mu doesn’t know if it would be easy to find.
Tru looked at Patrik and added, “This time, the rainy season seems to be coming earlier, I have this feeling.” He knows his feelings are always accurate.
Hearing that the rainy season is approaching sooner than expected, Lin Mu counted the days needed for them to go back. Then he looked at Patrik with a worried look, trying to determine if what Tru said is true, and whether they could rush back in time.
Patrik nodded. He felt the same way in the past few days. Thinking about the distance that they have to travel, he has a bad feeling.
“We should not be able to rush back to the tribe before the rainy season.”
Lin Mu heard Patrik’s words and fell into deep thoughts.
Tru looked at them and suggested to Patrik, “I think you should look for a cave nearby. It is very dangerous to travel with Lin Mu and your child in the rainy season.”
Lin Mu looked at Patrik and saw that he is also thinking about what to do. After thinking about it, he said to Patrik, “Let’s go back to the basin ground, it’s only 2 days away.”
Hearing what Lin Mu said, Patrik understood what he is thinking. As for why he didn’t say to go to the Hayes tribe instead, Patrik knows that Lin Mu has always liked the basin ground. Looking at Tru and the little bear beside him, Patrik guesses that the father and son pair should be also part of the reasons.
Patrik nodded and agreed with Lin Mu’s idea. Just as he expected, Lin Mu smiled and said to Tru, “Tru, you guys should come with us.”
Lin Mu sent an invitation to Tru. He really likes the little bear. Moreover, Tru is a kind person, so he is willing to help them.
Tru naturally agreed to Lin Mu’s invitation. If they were to stay together, they would be relatively safer.
Now that the decision is made, Lin Mu happily announced, “We will take a break now and set off after lunch. Next, we will have to work harder. We must reach the basin ground as soon as possible.”
Standing on the upper part of the basin ground, Lin Mu looked at the lush greenery below. He took a closer look, then pointed to a flat place and said, “Let’s build a house there.”
The concept of the house was introduced to Tru by Lin Mu during these days they travel to the basin ground. After being surprised, amazement followed behind. He couldn’t imagine that there is such a good thing called a house.
The following days, everyone is busy with their task. Cutting down the trees, putting the newly cut trees on the open space, peeling off the bark, and exposing them to the hot sun, then use them when the roof is built. Next, they collected stones and cleaned them up for later use. After everything is ready, the next step is to lay the foundation.
Naturally, Lin Mu is not idle either. Cooking is his job. Then he cuts grasses, weaves straw mats, rattan mats, and stockpiles food by the way. The basin ground is really rich in plants, and Lin Mu found a lot of things that can be used.
Being busy is expected, but even in such weather where it would occasionally rain, Patrik and Tru still managed to make the 2 big beds they need. Finally, it took them 10 days to build the house. Looking at the two-bedroom and one-living room house, it feels really good. The living room doubles as a kitchen, while the 2 rooms are for each of the family. Lin Mu and his family of three will stay in the room on the right.
“To celebrate the completion of the house, I have decided to make a good meal tonight!” Being busy for many days, they did not eat any good things. Now that the house is built, they will proceed to treat their stomachs. As for good food, anyone who fell for Lin Mu’s cooking skills will not object.
