POA Ch 23

Fire

“Even though you hunted this creature, you didn’t kill him, so we also have the right to the distribution of this prey.” White sat to the side as he coldly said.

 

He felt that they should have left this stranger buried somewhere, but Black stopped him from doing so.

 

White was successfully dissuaded by Black, but he still did not have any good feelings towards this unfamiliar male. Kantas were not group animals, and they were instinctively hostile to other males invading their territory.

 

The moment White stood up, Eim was stunned. A suspicious blush appeared on his cheeks.

 

What a beautiful person!

 

His hair was brighter than the rising sun, and his eyes were darker and colder than the deepest lakes on the snowy mountaintops. His lips were red, as if he had just drank fresh blood…

 

Well, probably because this beauty was currently eating raw meat.

 

The sight of the beauty half naked and gnawing on a raw beast leg did not faze Eim. He even felt his heart beat faster.

 

However, this beauty’s accent was a little strange, did they come from a village somewhere? Sure enough, beauties were easier to find in smaller villages! Eim tried to comprehend the words the beauty just said, er… The beauty actually thought that this beast was hunted by him… this… that…

 

Eim thought, between being an “idiot chased by a monster to the point of pissing his own pants” and “a hero capable of killing huge beasts”, he would rather be the latter.

 

“That, erm– Raw meat isn’t that delicious, I can make delicious roast meat, should we eat that instead?” The residual fear from surviving the previous ordeal had disappeared, and the only thought left on Eim’s mind was to impress the beauty with his cooking skills.

 

White was completely unaware of Eim’s inner thoughts, and thought that Eim was blushing only due to his awe at his own might. White even wanted to flap his wings, only to remember after a while that due to his wings losing feathers, Black did not permit him to do so [1]raws say black doesn’t let white retract his wings, but it doesn’t make sense to me in this context..

 

He then tore off the chewiest chunk of meat diligently for his partner, before carefully removing the tenderest portion for their bald baby, then tearing another piece of meat for their well-fed baby, Louis, before finally taking the claw which had less and harder meat for himself.

 

Enjoying the slightly crude, yet attentive care of his fathers, Meng Jiuzhao stopped chewing, instead looking at Eim who was running around collecting lots of dry moss. Eim then took out something that looked like a black rock, using it to create something that shocked Meng Jiuzhao.

 

A faint wisp of flame–

 

“Tweet tweet!!!” The moment he saw the flame, Louis tossed aside his half eaten chunk of meat and jumped to the youth [2]referring to Eim. Meng Jiuzhao hurriedly grabbed Louis into his arms.

 

Eim carefully protected the flame within his palms, continuously adding dry moss and the black stone. This made the fire burn bigger, becoming a bonfire.

 

White, who initially didn’t think much of this fire, also stood up vigilantly, spreading his hand out to shield his partner and children. Feeling the increasingly dangerous atmosphere around White, Eim quickly explained, “This is fire, our tribe exchanged it with 30 carts of black stone, it’s a very precious thing.”

 

Eim’s bag was like Doraemon’s four-dimensional pouch, he took out from it fresh Crunchy Grass and some yellow powder, smearing it over the meat as he roasted it. The long lost scent of cooked food drifted past their noses, and along with it, the cave they were in also warmed up.

 

This was the first time their family had their first cooked meal.

 

 

Translator has something to say:

Paragraphs longer than 2 lines on google docs on my tablet are the bane of my existence.

Also, my tablet died after 3 years of service (rip, you will be missed). I got a replacement tablet but I don’t have a keyboard for this new one. I’ll be getting a laptop and figuring out how to use it, since I never owned one before. It won’t affect current chapters since I have a healthy stockpile, but translating on it may be hard to get used to so… I’ll try my best… in the worst case scenario where I can’t get used to my new laptop, I’ll have to get a Bluetooth keyboard since the Samsung ones are really very expensive…

Please notify me if there are any typos since I’m editing on my phone and it’s kind of hard to read. WordPress site on mobile internet is extremely painful to use QwQ

This is the story of a Kantas couple’s successful efforts to lay (steal) egs: “… You stole it?” Black’s expression tensed as he cautiously lowered his body, using his wings to conceal the nest more tightly. “I didn’t steal–” Listening to Black’s question, White’s expression became prouder. He stuffed the large white egg beneath his butt as he replied excitedly, “I laid it!” Boom– Black seemed to have heard the sound of a string known as rationality snapping in his head. He finally knew what was more infuriating than a husband leaving home for half a year only to come back with a wife three months pregnant. Which was– A wife leaving home for a few days to find out that his husband had laid an egg! The story’s protagonist → Meng Jiuzhao (crying) : I am that egg.   Support the author here
