“This is… Your father?” White pointed to the white dumpling that Eim was hugging tightly.
“Yeah~ Dad’s fur is the softest and comfiest~~” Eim happily started nuzzling the white dumpling. Looking at the tears and snot which had been rubbed on the snow rabbit, Black edged away.
Eim pulled apart the hind legs of the rabbit to show Black, “Look, there are two spots on Dad’s tummy. I only recognised him after I saw this.”
Black & White & Meng Jiuzhao: So you can’t tell at a glance either? Also, casually letting others look at your old man’s jjYou know, the peepee, is that really a good idea?
Also! Is this dumpling even a Kantas?
Only then did Black and White realise, they seemed to have mistaken something… = =/// because they had the misconception that they were the same species as Eim
“This is my brother! Brother has the longest ears!” Completely unaware of the changes in Black and White’s expressions, Eim nuzzled one rabbit, then another, and then another.
Only after he had made sure that all of them were covered in tears and snot (he even checked each one multiple times =.=), did he gratifyingly look at Carat who was tidying the kitchen.
“It’s nothing much, those rabbits were buried in the snowdrift. I tripped over them, so I brought them back.” Carat’s face was still expressionless. He ignored everyone and continued cleaning up.
“Can I help?” Eim put down the white dumpling in his hand, wanting to lend a hand, but was stopped by Fendi.
“Rather than helping, why don’t you guys settle down first?” Although these words were directed to Eim, Fendi’s eyes were looking straight towards Black’s direction.
Listening to his words, Black and White met eyes, before looking at the “Kantas cubs” that were currently barricaded, then hugged Meng Jiuzhao and Louis even tighter.
They were now conflicted: Should they follow these strange creatures to their territory? But these creatures actually ate Kantas! They even raised a bunch of Kantas– As livestock?!
They decided, with their tails tucked between their legs, to first observe the situation… Before running away. o(╯□╰)o
Hence, they were brought to the location for registration of new tribe members. Although it was a small hut made simply from logs and animal hide, it was sufficient to cause Eim’s jaw to drop as he had never seen such things.
“Wow! This must be the roof stated in legends! This is my first time living in a place other than a cave!” Eim was extremely excited. If he was tall enough, he even wanted to jump up to feel the roof.
“It’s a little smelly…” Black frowned. Although he led a primitive lifestyle, he had extremely advanced living habits. Though he had never lived in a burrow, his own nest was always kept clean. He loved cleanliness since he was a cub, (he is still a cub that loves cleanliness 囧, ) and his cubs also loved cleanliness!
“May I ask, what is your species?” It was his first time helping such a beautiful person register. The person in charge of registration was so happy he did not know what to do.
“Snow rabbit!” Eim rapidly replied.
“Are the two of you also snow rabbits?” After casually recording down Eim’s information, the person in charge patiently turned to Black and White and asked.
“Yeah! They’re snow rabbits too!” The enthusiastic Eim continued answering.
“…” The recorder gave Eim a look, before switching back to a wide smile as he turned to White and asked “Are you two also snow rabbits?”
Black and White were unique Kantases with patience and perseverance. Even among their entire species, their degree of perseverance was rare. This could be seen from them going to the mating ground for five years in a row for the sake of stealing eggs. o(╯□╰)o
During those times, they could stay until they were the last to leave just so the other Kantas would not find out about their identity as cubs. Now, to hide their Kantas identity, they could also–
“…” Glancing at White, Black nodded firmly.
“Ah! Snow rabbits~ I love them the most!” The recorder continued smiling widely.
“What is your species?” Eim curiously asked. Black and White also looked towards him.
The recorder who was being looked at by two beauties was in high spirits.
“I, am a wolf! I- I’m Tooth!” 牙=Ya=Tooth. Opted for tooth because google translate uses it lol
“…” Eim nervously tugged on Black as he hid behind him.
“… Is this wolf the one you mentioned along the way, that terrifying animal that loves eating rabbits?” Black asked in a low voice.
Eim nodded in a way that was barely noticeable.
Hence when they looked at the recorder Tooth again, Black and White’s eyes became more vigilant.
“!” Recorder, Tooth, suffered a great blow. He tried to salvage his good (?!) image in the beauties’ hearts. “I don’t like eating rabbits at all! I, I prefer chickens!”
Chicken? Isn’t that how those people called the Kantas cubs locked in the cages?
Thinking about this, Black and White’s eyes towards Tooth were no longer just vigilant, but guarded and even hostile.
This guy likes eating Kantas, absolutely unforgivable!
Author has something to say:
I like reading everyone’s comments. Sometimes, I even feel that your comments can be made into a little theatre, for example:
Infant Shoes for the Dumpling: So cute so cute so cute, the entire family has finally reunited! Congratulations! (sillycute.jpg)This is supposed to be an emote of sorts, but I don’t know what it is called in english, so please make do with this
Planting Tofu: They reunited in the cage of another family’s kitchen… (diggingnose.jpg)
Author-sama: 囧！(explodingkitty.jpg) alternatively, angry cat
Translator has something to say:
The “chicken” in the chapter title can imply many different things and I chose to think of the worst one…
|↑1||You know, the peepee|
|↑2||because they had the misconception that they were the same species as Eim|
|↑3||牙=Ya=Tooth. Opted for tooth because google translate uses it lol|
|↑4||This is supposed to be an emote of sorts, but I don’t know what it is called in english, so please make do with this|
|↑5||alternatively, angry cat|
Now there a question…are really kantas in the cages? I find it hard to believe they find so many cubs of kantas without the parents be nearby…!
