At the same time, in the kitchen–
“Goodness!” White and Eim were stunned by the sight before them.
There were so many Kantas cubs! And they were all imprisoned in such a dirty cage! ← This was White’s thoughts.
Just as Eim figured out that they were going to be someone’s dinner, White ran into the cave too quickly for Eim to stop him. In a corner of the cave was a roughly made fence. They looked curiously inside to see a group of fluffy Kantas cubs.
“Louis! Louis! Where have you gone?” While tidying Baby’s hair, Black noticed that Louis was missing. Initially, he did not worry much, only thinking he had gone somewhere to play. But when Black was done with Baby’s hair, Louis was still not back, causing him to be worried.
Black carried Meng Jiuzhao and sweated as he went around looking for Louis to no avail. Eventually, he got to the same corner only to see a group of fluffy little bodies and was visibly stunned.
“Chirp?” Louis, who was covered in grime, squeezed out from the group of furballs and looked at Black in confusion.
Black wept tears of joy as he hugged Louis.
And hence, by the time Fendi rushed to the kitchen, he was met with such a scene.
“…That, I thought it was a chicken you caught on the way here, so I placed it in the tribe’s chicken coop.” Carat explained slowly. “Although it’s still a chick, it’s pretty fat.”
“This is my cub! Not just any chicken!” Black wiped his tears, and White stared daggers at Carat.
Carat turned a blind eye to this. Well, he was really blind. We can’t expect a disabled man of 0.01 vision to be able to discern between a chicken and Kantas cub, right? Besides, even the cub’s father wasn’t capable of such.
A weeping beauty made one feel pity. The men of the tribe could thoroughly understand the reason behind Holstein’s actions: If it were them, how would a six day journey be enough? It had to be ten at least!
(Holstein who was currently wrapped in medicinal plasters: T。T)
Eim paid no heed to the argument Black was having with Carat. His attention was completely focussed on a couple of white fluff balls in the coop. He carefully walked close, taking some time to identify them, before his eyes filled with tears, “Dad! Brother! Little cousin! Third aunt!”
His voice was so shrill that everyone was stunned. Eim sprinted to the chicken coop, a bunch of claw prints and feathers getting onto him as he hugged the big, trembling rabbits in the corner.
“Dad! Brother! I thought I’d never see you again!” Eim burst into tears. His cries were much louder than Black’s, and his tears also more abundant. Forgetting about his argument with Carat, Black hugged Louis as he stood dazedly.
Not only him, everyone at the scene was shocked by this turn of events.
“Ah, those are rabbits I encountered on the road a couple of days ago. I saw that they were quite fat, so I caught them back. Why? Did I catch the wrong thing again?” Carat raised his head blankly.
“No! You didn’t catch the wrong thing, they’re indeed rabbits.” Eim sucked back the mucus in his nose, then raised his head to show a face of gratitude, “I really need to thank you! You’re a great person!”
“Oh…” Carat accepted Eim’s good person card with dazed eyes.
Translator has something to say:
A good person card, the chinese equivalent of a friendzone, except that it can be used in all sorts of circumstances, not just when someone’s confession gets rejected.
