Xue Ling carried Huanhuan all the way to the territory where the feather tribe lived.
As soon as they landed, many feather beasts surrounded them and spoke at once.
Huanhuan felt dizzy from listening and didnt hear anything clearly.
In the end, Xue Ling interrupted the feather beasts to calm them down.
Take your time.”
Huanhuan looked confused.
“Whats going on”
At this moment, the leader of the feather tribe, Shen Yan, walked through the crowd.
He clenched one hand into a fist and pressed it to his chest.
He bowed slightly and solemnly.
“On behalf of the feather tribe, I thank you for giving us new life!”
Huanhuan was still confused.
Xue Ling smiled and explained, “I gave the medicine you gave us the last time to the females in the tribe.
They all got pregnant this winter and gave birth to nearly 40 bird eggs one after another.
Today, all these bird eggs hatched.”
In recent years, the fertility rate of the birds had been decreasing.
Each female could only lay one egg a year, and the egg might not hatch successfully.
Many of them were dead eggs that would never hatch.
Some of them barely hatched.
In the end, the hatchlings died not long after because they were weak and sickly.
However, the 40 bird eggs that were born this winter had all hatched successfully, and every hatchling was very healthy.
This could be considered the most successful mass reproduction of the feather race in decades!
This made all the feather beasts excited!
You are reading on MYBO XN 0 V E L.
“So thats what happened.” Realization dawned on Huanhuan.
Congratulations for being able to add to the population.”
Shen Yan said sincerely, “Its all thanks to your medicine that our females could all get pregnant and their eggs could successfully hatch.
In the future, youll be our benefactor.
As long as you say the word, well go through fire and water for you!”
The idiomgoing through fire and water was something Huanhuan taught to the children of the rock mountain.
After they returned home, they told their parents, friends, and relatives.
Hence, the beasts would bring up an idiom or two in conversations now.
Huanhuan quickly waved her hand.
“I didnt do anything.
Theres no need to trouble yourself.
In the future, our tribes will get along well.
We can just support each other when were in trouble.”
Seeing that she did not blackmail him into returning the favor, Shen Yan heaved a sigh of relief.
At the same time, he admired her magnanimity.
He smiled kindly.
“Since youve already become mates with Xue Ling, it means that the Rock Wolf Tribe and the feather tribe are family.
Well definitely help each other!”
The other beasts agreed.
“Thats right! Elder Xue Ling will be yours from now on.
You have to quickly give us a few more children!”
“Were family from now on.
If you need any help, feel free to let me know!”
“I wish you happiness!”
In the face of everyones blessings, Xue Ling clenched Huanhuans right hand, and his smile grew brighter.
Huanhuan shook off his hand and frowned.
“When did I become your mate”
She didnt speak loudly, but the beasts had a keen hearing.
Everyone heard her clearly and couldnt help but be stunned.
Xue Ling said calmly, “Although we havent officially mated, youve already promised to be my mate.
You said it yourself.
We even exchanged love tokens.”
He waved the ring on his ring finger to show that he was telling the truth.
Huanhuan felt that this person was really good at avoiding important issues.
“You lied to me back then.
I agreed to be your mate because I thought you were dying.”
“I was indeed about to die at that time, but I lived.
I wasnt completely lying to you.” Xue Ling looked at her with a faint smile.
“Besides, isnt it good for me to be alive Do you have to be mates with a dead person”
“You!” Huanhuan was so angry that she couldnt speak properly.
“Youre being unreasonable!”
Xue Ling took her hand again and comforted her.
Dont be angry.
I was wrong that time.
I promise I wont lie to you again.”
Huanhuan shook off his hand again.
“I told you, I wont believe anything you say again! Not a word!”
With that, she ran back.
Xue Ling stood alone and accepted everyones gazes.
Everyones eyes were filled with confusion.
They didnt understand what was going on between the two of them.
The corners of Xue Lings mouth were still slightly curled up into a faint smile, but there was no warmth in his blood-red eyes.
They were frighteningly cold.
“What are you looking at Have you never seen a couple have a conflict”
Shen Yan waved his hand and dismissed everyone.
After everyone had left, Shen Yan patted Xue Lings shoulder and asked tentatively, “Was what Huanhuan said just now true Did you really lie to her”
Xue Ling sneered.
“If I hadnt lied to her, she wouldve never seriously considered me.”
He had never been a gentleman.
If he wanted something, he would fight for it.
Even if the methods he used were a little inferior in some peoples eyes, it was fine as long as he could achieve his goal.
Shen Yan looked at him with a complicated expression.
“But Huanhuan looks really angry.
Will you end up pushing her farther away”
“Shes never been close to me.
Even so, how far can she go”
Xue Lings tone was cold as if he had expected this outcome.
However, Shen Yan heard the sadness in his voice and hesitated.
“If it really doesnt work, forget it.
Although females are precious, shes not the only one.”
Xue Ling said, “If I could just look for any female, would I have waited until now to mate”
It wasnt that he was narcissistic.
With his conditions, even though female beasts were rare on the continent, he would have no problems attracting many females to him.
For him, Huanhuan was different.
She was irreplaceable.
Shen Yan sighed helplessly.
Even if you have to have her, you have to change your way of pursuing her.
With your current attitude, youll die sooner or later.”
Xue Ling glanced at him.
“What do you have in mind”
“First, you have to make yourself look gentler.
Females like to be gently cared for.
When they choose a mate, theyll be more inclined to pick the male beasts that are gentle and kind, like that tiger beast.”
Xue Ling scoffed.
“Bai Di is gentle and kind He has the deepest mind out of the three.”
“But at least he looks gentle and kind! Females love him! Huanhuan is completely under his control!”
Xue Ling was speechless.
Shen Yan continued to give him ideas.
“Also, you have to learn to show weaknesses.
Females are born with a maternal instinct.
Its easier for them to get close to weak and harmless creatures.
This will make them feel like mothers.
Theyll subconsciously want to protect the weak.”
Xue Ling thought of Sang Ye.
That guy always looked pitiful in front of Huanhuan.
Hence, Huanhuans heart ached for him.
“Last but not least, use fewer tricks and show more sincerity! Although Shuang Yun is neither gentle nor pitiful, hes sincere.
Many females cant resist his straightforward passion.”
Xue Ling chuckled.
“Hes just stupid.”
“But hes so silly that hes cute! Unlike you, whos full of tricks.
Huanhuan cant even tell whether what you say is true or false.
Huanhuan will definitely think that youre not a good male beast that she can trust.”
Xue Ling stroked his chin thoughtfully.
“I think I understand what you mean…”
