When Huanhuan woke up, it was already the next morning.
The sun was big and full in the sky.
The glare made her instinctively raise her hand to shield her eyes.
She struggled to her feet and found herself lying on the riverbank that was covered in tiny river pebbles.
Not far away, a few small crabs crawled out from under the pebbles and walked past her ankles.
‘Where am I
Huanhuan sat on the ground and looked around.
In front of her was the surging river, and behind her was the endless forest.
As for the camp and the rock mountain, they were long gone.
Being in an unfamiliar environment, Huanhuan was stunned for a moment.
Then, she came back to her senses and remembered what had happened last night.
Big worms, small worms, countless worms, and Little Brat… Oh right, Little Brat!
Huanhuan perked up.
She got up and called out to Little Brat.
But no one responded even after several shouts.
Was last night just a dream Did Little Brat not come back at all
Huanhuans heart sank, and a huge sense of loss and sadness welled up in her heart.
She lowered her head and rubbed her eyes hard.
“Liar!” she scolded in a trembling voice.
“You lied to me again!”
“Who lied to you Daddy will help you teach them a lesson.”
“Who else Its Little Brat… Huh” Huanhuans eyes widened.
“Little Brat, is that you!”
The system sounded weak.
Huanhuan immediately smiled through her tears.
“I thought you were gone again.”
“Since I came back, I wont leave again.”
“Thats great!” Huanhuan was so happy.
She rambled on for a long time.
She wanted to tell it how much she missed it.
When she had said all she needed to say, she realized that the system had barely spoken.
Huanhuan immediately became uneasy again.
“Are you still angry with me”
The system said, “No.”
“Then why are you ignoring me”
The system said, “Im not ignoring you.
Im just feeling a little uncomfortable.”
Huanhuan quickly asked, “Why are you unwell Are you sick Can a system take medicine”
“Dont worry, Im not sick.”
“Then what happened to you”
Seeing how concerned she was, the system sighed.
“I spent a lot of effort dragging you ashore last night, so Im exhausted.
Ill wake up again after a few days of rest.”
Huanhuan recalled what had happened last night.
She had the impression that someone had carried her ashore from the river.
But no matter how hard she tried to remember, she couldnt remember what the person who saved her looked like.
She couldnt help but confirm again, “Little Brat, were you the one who carried me ashore last night”
“You can become human”
The system was silent for a moment before saying softly, “Yeah, but it takes a lot of energy to become human.
Ill be in hibernation soon.”
Although Huanhuan was curious about its ability to turn into a human, its health was the most important.
She quickly said, “Then hurry up and rest.
Well talk about other things after you recover.”
Take good care of yourself.
Call me if youre in danger.
Daddy will come and save you.”
Huanhuan couldnt help but laugh.
“System Daddy, youre so good!”
She heard a prompt.
The system has entered a deep dormant state.”
With the system by her side, Huanhuan felt different.
Even if she was in a completely unfamiliar environment, she didnt feel afraid.
Huanhuan wrote a line on the slab to show that she was safe and sound.
She stuffed the slab into her space, hoping Bai Di and the others would see it soon.
She caught two small crabs and skewered them on sticks to roast.
She ate them as she walked.
Last night, she was washed here along the river.
Logically speaking, this should be the lower reaches of the Black River.
As long as she followed the river up, she should be able to return to the camp.
‘Well, lets hope this river has no tributaries.
Huanhuan bit on the crab and made a crunching sound.
The lotus bud was raised and erected above her head.
From time to time, it looked around.
The crabs tasted really good, but they were too small.
Huanhuan ate them all in one go.
It was not satisfying.
Huanhuan licked her fingers clean.
Her sharp eyes noticed that not far ahead, two crabs were climbing out of the river.
They were quite big and looked fat.
Huanhuan wiped her saliva and sneaked over.
She caught them off guard.
Haha, more good food!
She was feeling smug when a hand suddenly grabbed her ankle!
“Theres a ghost!” Huanhuan was so frightened that her soul almost flew out, but even so, she did not throw the crabs in her hand.
It reflected her strong spirit as a foodie.
“Who are you calling a ghost”
Huanhuan was stunned when she heard this voice.
Ghosts couldnt speak, right Moreover, it was broad daylight and the sun was so bright overhead.
Which ghost would be stupid enough to come out and wander around at this time!
She calmed down a little and looked down to see a man.
No, in this world, he should be called a male beast.
He had short, grayish-white curly hair that was stuck to his cheeks because it was soaked.
Water dripped down his deep, three-dimensional outline, and his lower body was still in the water.
Huanhuan asked, “What are you doing here”
“Taking a shower.”
The male beast answered very calmly, making Huanhuan feel a little guilty and short of breath.
It was as if she was the one peeping at him taking a shower.
The man stood up in the water, naked.
He was long-limbed and tall, but his skin was excessively pale.
He looked transparent in the sunlight.
Most importantly, he was naked.
Huanhuan wanted to cover her eyes, but she was still holding two big crabs in her hands.
She couldnt free her hands for a moment.
She could only turn around and face away from him.
She asked, “Dont you have any clothes”
The male beast stared at her back for a moment before suddenly saying, “I cant see.”
“Huh” Huanhuan was very surprised.
“Why cant you see Is there something wrong with your eyes”
“Yes, theres something wrong with my eyes, so can you help me get my clothes Theyre under a rock.”
Huanhuan looked around and saw clothes not far ahead.
She ran over and asked Little Green to help move the stones.
Then, she rolled up the clothes on the ground and ran back to hand them to the male beast.
The male beast had walked ashore.
He took the clothes and put them on.
He put on the black robe.
He had pale skin, lips as red as blood, and deep amber eyes.
He had a mysterious quality.
Huanhuan looked at him in a daze.
“Have I seen you somewhere”
She felt that the person in front of her looked familiar, but she couldnt remember where she had seen him before.
The male beast smiled.
“You have a unique way of striking up a conversation.”
