POA Ch 29

A Tribe Dripping in 囧

White looked around curiously.

 

Right now, they were in a “tribe”. Team Fendi- which was also the team that brought them back here- was immediately called by the chief of the tribe to report the situation. And as people brought back by them- Eim, White, Black and all the Crunchy Grass they gathered on the way here, were arranged to a place.

 

They had yet to realise if anything was wrong.

 

“This is a tribe?” White jumped off the platform and started walking around.

 

“I’m not very sure either. I’ve only come once with my dad, and have never entered their houses… I heard that these houses are very comfortable to live in, is this what their interior look like?” Eim slept for a while, and once he woke up, only Black and White was left around him.

 

“It turns out they’re the same as us rabbits, and also like to live in burrows!” Not realising that he was also a “bumpkin”, Eim laughed happily.

 

“What is this?” White noticed another item he did not recognise.

 

“That’s a knife. It can be used to cut objects like Crunchy Grass and meat. It’s super useful!” Eim enthusiastically explained.

 

“Then what’s this?” White continued exploring.

 

“That is flint, when you strike it, fire appears. You can use it to keep warm, and even roast meat~”

 

“Oh! Then what does this do?”

 

“That’s the pot that I told you guys about! You can use it to make soup, and it is particularly good for babies to eat!” Eim’s feet pattered as he ran to the pot, “As expected of a big tribe, even their pots are so big!”

 

But… It seemed like something was not right? Why was everything here… Eim finally began to feel that something was not right.

 

He looked at the pot which had been scrubbed clean and even filled with water, then at the flint and firewood placed neatly at one side. He then turned to look at the knife White asked about, and finally at the platform he just jumped off. That shape was that of a–

 

Chopping board?!

 

Eim’s head was in a muddled mess.

 

    *****

 

At that moment, near the Vash tribe chief’s nest, tribe members gathered. The Vash tribe was a very united tribe. All matters had to be discussed between the tribe members before coming to a decision, and this time was not an exception.

 

The chief of the Vash tribe– Salle, was a liger [1]Although Ligers are artificially bred, author used lion and tiger together to call his species so I’ll keep it as that beastman. Unlike the others in the tribe who loved to move around in humanoid form, Salle preferred to live with his original form. He had just finished listening to Team Fendi’s report.

 

“So, the forbidden zone split apart?” Salle said slowly.

 

“Yes, the area where the snow rabbits lived also cracked, just like what happened a few years ago…” Fendi, a tiger beastman and team leader of Team Fendi, described what he saw and heard.

 

Salle’s eyelids lowered.

 

This action meant that he did not have anything else to say, so the others could start speaking. Hence, Batu, who had been resisting the urge, quickly jumped out. “Why did you guys go for so long? Did you encounter any trouble?”

 

A journey which was originally three days long ended up taking double the time. They even thought that Fendi’s team had encountered a disaster and would be unable to come back! Who would expect that everyone came back alive and kicking, seeming like nothing happened. Hold on, not everyone was perfectly fine, Holstein was…

 

A gossipy smile appeared on Fendi’s face, “Wasn’t it because of Holstein–”

 

It became widely known to the tribe that in order to carry those beauties for a little longer, Holstein stretched out the journey which was originally three days long to be six days.

 

Holstein, who was applying [2]ing was in english in the raws a medicinal patch at the doctor’s: T口T I did not do it intentionally, I really couldn’t walk faster!

 

“I refuse to believe that rabbits can look that good.” Treating the situation involving Holstein as a joke, Batu dismissed it, even feeling that Fendi and his team’s decision to bring them back to the tribe was incomprehensible.

 

The Vash Tribe, which Batu and the others were part of, was a tribe mainly consisting of carnivorous animals. Even if there were some exceptions, they would be animals like mammoths, reindeers, or those with an advantage in terms of size and strength, or skill. 

 

Animals like rabbits… Could you imagine a wolf bringing out a rabbit to hunt?

 

“Is it because you guys were craving rabbit meat?” Batu continued mocking them, “How many rabbits did you bring back? Fifty? A hundred? If there are less than fifty, there aren’t even enough to fill the gaps of our teeth!”

 

“… We only brought four back, and they all have humanoid forms! If you don’t believe me, why don’t you take a look… Hm? Where are they?” Fendi wanted to show them to prove his point, only to find out that the people in question- Black and white- weren’t there at all. “Oh right, Carat, where are the four rabbits I passed to you just now?”

 

Tribe chef • Carat looked towards them with blank eyes, slowly saying, “… Oh, I left them in the kitchen.”

 

“Uh– Why would you let them go to the kitchen to eat? Did you give them carrots? If you didn’t you should have at least given them some Crunchy Grass!” For such beautiful people, special treatment was a must. What if they ran away because they were being mistreated?

 

Carat scratched his head and tilted his head after a while, “I left them on the chopping board.”

 

“You told me that they were rabbits, so I naturally thought they were dinner…” Carat looked towards the kitchen, at a loss, “… Because I rushed here for the meeting, I didn’t even have the chance to deskin them…”

 

Note: Carat, the chef of the tribe, was a python with extremely bad eyesight. With eyesight barely reaching 0.01,[3]Google says 0.05=blindness, so Carat is worse than being blind XD he would often mistake seasonings and cause their dinner to taste terrible.

 

Fendi: 囧!

 

Translator has something to say: 

Oh my goodness, Carat!

Also, Carat’s gender is unknown, so I’m going with Carat instead of Carla, which was the other name google translate used.

Now, an explanation for how I translated the chapter title. 囧哒哒 was used, which I assumed was a modification of 湿哒哒, which means dripping wet, the repeated characters were bolded. There isn’t any explanation for the word 囧 (which was used to replace 湿) as it is usually used as an expression of exasperation/awkwardness among many other meanings. So that’s how I arrived at using dripping with 囧  instead of dripping wet. (There may be another meaning of the title that I may not be understanding so if anyone understands, please feel free to leave a comment explaining it to me! ^^)

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
