POA Ch 50

Our Bald Baby Has Hair Now!

Snowflake’s arrival spelt good news for the tribe.

 

He could knit sweaters.

 

Xuehua sat in the middle of a group of females, smiling gently. He personally instructed the females on how to select the appropriate animal fur, before weaving them into thread. 

 

The long thread was twisted between his fingers as he used two wooden sticks to dexterously weave them. 

 

The final product was a beautiful set of clothes they have never seen before.

 

“Wow!” The female tribesmen, led by Sita, were awed by his godly craftsmanship.

 

No longer angry at him for mistaking her gender, Sita earnestly asked him for advice.

 

Xuehua was a great teacher, and selflessly taught the basics of sweater weaving to the women. Not only that, he was sick of seeing their terribly tangled nest-like hair, and gave them a crash course on “Eighteen Ways of Tying Hair”.

 

Looking at the various types of pigtails on each female’s head, Meng Jiuzhao made an “ah” sound to Xuehua.

 

If you have time to teach them how to tie hair, can’t you teach them how to set up a security system for the tribe? Male god~ In times when we can’t even guarantee our safeties, our lives matter more than pigtails!

 

“But I really don’t know how to set up a security system, my strength lies in singing, knitting, and tying hair.”

 

“Ah!” If you only have lifestyle related specialties, why don’t you teach them how to cook! Carat’s cooking is too unbearable! Meng Jiuzhao was unable to stand his food anymore.

 

“I know absolutely nothing about cooking. I said already, my strength lies in singing, knitting and tying hair. Ai [1]sighing sound, although your hair is pretty neat, there’s no style at all. Let uncle braid it for you. Your face is very round, so braids are the cutest on you!”

 

 ̄▽ ̄ My male god praised me for being cute!

 

The flattered Meng Jiuzhao was well behaved, letting his idol tie 3 braids on his head. After realising what he had unconsciously done, Meng Jiuzhao got annoyed.

 

Ah damn~ This isn’t the time to be tying braids!

 

That’s why I said, an artist’s world cannot be understood by ordinary people.

 

It was said that the people who were the first to be allowed to buy the space-time capsule were all leaders in their industries. Some of them were idols or entertainers who had been popular for centuries, artists who had pieces valued at the price of an entire planet, and even popular authors…The empire gave such people the priority of purchasing a space-time capsule, in hopes that these exceptional people could still exist after the disaster. This was called Noah’s Plan.

 

Looking at it now, the person who came up with this plan was definitely an idiot!

 

After the disaster that made everywhere a wasteland, what kind of help could idols, artists and authors provide in rebuilding civilization?

 

By letting them paint? Letting them write stories? Or by letting them sing?

 

It’s no wonder that so much time had passed, but no progress had been made, because they were all artists–

 

Meng Jiuzhao was depressed.

 

On the other hand, Black and White were extremely happy.

 

They carefully learnt how to knit, then used their own fluff to knit an especially thick sweater for Meng Jiuzhao to wear. (Louis also contributed a bit of his feathers)

 

The sweater was ugly, and the stitches were crooked, but when worn on his body, his eyes got hot[2]ie, he was on the verge of tears.

 

Even though the feathers on their bodies were not growing properly, they were still willing to pluck their own feathers to knit him a sweater–

 

“Our Baby isn’t a bald cub anymore!” Seeing his cub clothed in a “Papa” brand sweater, Black’s eyes shone.

 

Meng Jiuzhao’s eyes were also shining. He touched the little sweater he was wearing, before placing his hands on the floor and exerting force with his legs. 

 

He stood up and toddled to Black.

 

“White! Look! Look! Baby can walk now!” Just like every ordinary parent, every little development in their children were seen as unparalleled feats.

 

Black’s tone became exceptionally cheerful, and he joyfully called his partner over to take a look.

 

As soon as he heard Black, White came over. He and Black nervously watched Meng Jiuzhao stumble towards them. Although the baby did not walk very stably, they resisted the urge to carry him up, quietly watching him do his best to walk over.

 

Meng Jiuzhao wobbled as he walked. Finally, he couldn’t hold on any longer. His legs softened, but before he even managed to fall onto the hay covered ground, a pair of strong arms immediately caught him.

 

Meng Jiuzhao looked up to see Black’s tense expression.

 

He giggled, to the point that his eyes became crescents, and there were tiny stars shining in his eyes. He hugged Black’s face, pressing a smooch on his face, before doing the same for White.

 

“Chirp~~~” Seeing Louis look at him with anticipation, Meng Jiuzhao beckoned him over. Louis ran over happily, and Meng Jiuzhao proceeded to kiss… His fluffy hair.

 

Although there wasn’t any toilet paper after he used the toilet, even though there was no salt in everything he ate, even though life was simple, crude, and full of danger-

 

Meng Jiuzhao felt extremely happy.

 

In this life, he finally had a real family.

 

In his past life, he was an orphan. The one he called Dad was just the dean of his orphanage. Although the dean treated him very well, that was a general form of love, and was different from the love that Black, White and Louis showered him with.

 

Louis[3]Referring to the kantas emperor, thank you. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to come here, to gain such a precious family. Thank you–

 

Rolling with his fathers and brother into a pile, Meng Jiuzhao expressed heartfelt gratitude to the Louis of his past life.

 

    ***

 

The entry of a new tribe member brought along a new style of clothing, which made the females of the tribe much happier, but still could not mask the existence of those monsters.

 

Because they decreased their hunting area, the animals available for hunting decreased day by day. Later, some hunters of the tribe found the remains of some prey as well as some strange large footprints within their hunting area.

 

Upon examination, it was found that the wounds on the bodies of those preys were identical to those on the bodies of the Phil brothers.

 

What did this mean?

 

It meant that the monsters had started entering their hunting grounds to hunt.

 

With the entry of these formidable opponents, the number of prey available for them to hunt decreased further.

 

“Chirp~~~” Louis hugged his own tummy as he rolled around on the floor.

 

He had been listless recently.

 

This wasn’t unexpected. Since less food was hunted, everyone also ate less. Even though they had a big feast a couple of days ago, all that food was long digested.

 

Black and White looked at their cubs, slightly worried.

 

The rabbit Eim was worrying along with them.

 

The environment here wasn’t good, so whenever there was food, everyone would eat it. As such, his rabbit family also ate meat.

 

But in the end, their main diet consisted of plants. There was still meat left in the tribe, but not any plants.

 

His dad ate so much meat that he got constipated.

 

Eim would become brave when his family was involved, which was why he previously went so far to harvest some Crunchy Grass[4]referring to the time just before Eim met B&W. So when he saw Black and White preparing to sneak out of the tribe to hunt, he raised his hand in determination to sign up for this trip.

 

There were many hunters in the tribe, but not many of them would bring their entire family out to hunt with them.

 

“The monster that Sita described sounds terrifying, I hope we don’t bump into them.” Eim treaded the path carefully. His dad and brother were hopping in front of him, looking like two snowballs.

 

Dad was always able to find things to eat, so Eim felt safe letting him lead the way.

 

“When we reached Sita, there were only three Utah Raptors around her, so we also never met those terrifying monsters.” Black frowned.

 

If possible, he didn’t want to run into a monster that was so difficult to deal with. After all, they didn’t plan on revealing their original forms to Eim unless it was completely necessary. Additionally, White’s teeth were still–

 

Meng Jiuzhao: ——///

 

Even till now, Black and White had yet to realise that the monsters everyone else was talking about were dinosaurs. This– Their comprehension abilities were really god-tier.

 

But they couldn’t be blamed for misunderstanding. The fearsome monsters as described by Sita were simply too different from the Utah Raptors who were extremely fragile in face of Kantas.

 

“Utah Raptors are usually found in groups. I wonder if those three we hunted that time have other companions. If we’re lucky enough to hunt two more, Baby and Louis can finally have a good meal.” Black silently planned.

 

“What are Utah Raptors?” Eim, who was from the outer continent, naturally didn’t know how Black and the others classified and named species. He was curious about the new noun, hence he raised a question.

 

“It’s the meat we had the first time we met!”

 

“Ah! So it’s that scary looking fellow! I thought I was gonna die at that time!” Remembering that experience, Eim felt anxious, “Thank goodness you two managed to kill it so easily.”

 

“Those guys move very quickly, but aren’t very strong. As long as they do not get the chance attack together, they are very easy to catch!” White wasn’t stingy in sharing his knowledge.

 

“Really? Then let’s try to catch that thing you call a Utah Raptor! You know, although their flesh was a little tough, when I chewed carefully, I found that it was actually pretty chewy! I kind of miss that texture!” Eim earnestly said.

 

Meng Jiuzhao  ̄▽ ̄ : You’re definitely the bravest rabbit in the world, a rabbit that has thoughts of catching a dinosaur to eat! I give you a like! [5]like as in those reactions on social media

 

“But those Utah Raptors are annoying when they run around. They are quick on their feet, and it’s easy to lose them when you stop paying attention…” 

 

Black wasn’t very optimistic. He and White were still cubs and their speed and strength were incomparable to the adult Kantas. 

 

The previous time, they were lucky to have Sita gain the Utah Raptors’ attention, allowing them to capture all three raptors. If they were hunting alone, it would be hard to catch more than one.

 

“Why not dig a hole when you find traces of the Utah Raptors? Don’t look down on me because I’m weak, I can hunt when I want to eat meat too!” Eim was motivated, and quickly started thinking of ways to hunt.

 

“We first have to prepare food that they like to eat, and place it in the spot we intend to capture them. Usually, I’ll dig many holes, so that when the prey comes, I can start chasing them. When they fall into one of the holes, they will be successfully caught!”

 

Eim shared his hunting experiences with excitement, opening a new door for Black and White.

 

They never knew that so much preparation was involved in a hunt. To Black and White who always thought that hunting only consisted of 3 simple steps, “Run→Pounce→Catch”, Eim’s experiences sounded amazing.

 

It sounded very fun! ( ⊙ o ⊙)

 

After some time, they finally found traces of Utah Raptor activity. From the footprints, they deduced that there were at least 5 raptors.

 

They prepared to hunt them.

 

Eim then inquired in detail about the pacing and size of the Utah Raptors, before circling many areas on the ground according to these measurements.

 

They then dug many holes. The holes were very deep. Once the raptors fell in, they would definitely be buried alive.

 

“Alright. Next, we are going to prepare their favourite food. Oh right, do the Utah Raptors eat plants or meat?” Eim wiped off the sweat on his forehead, asking. After he asked, he realised that that was a silly question to ask.

 

“With such powerful teeth, they should eat meat, right? Then we should get some meat.”

 

Eim looked around, finally pointing to his brother who was doing his best to make the pits deeper.

 

“I choose you! Brother’s meat is the softest!” [6]?! Eim?! What are you doing?!

 

Translator had something to say:

So far from all the author’s works I’ve read, the MC has no living biological family–

Also, happy new year to you readers. Thank you for the comments and reviews you’ve given, and thank you for reading my translations <3 Please continue supporting me in the year ahead.

(now i will follow with a rant. I damaged my laptop and sent it for repairs, but because it was sent in nearing the end of 2022, the repair centre is very inefficient and I’ve not even gotten a quote for how much the repair would cost. So now I’m just sitting, depressed, praying that my laptop will come home before my new school term (which is 1 week from now qwq), and also hoping it’s not gonna cost too much ;-; my precious laptop, I promise not to hurt you duer to my clumsiness ever again ;-; my heart hurt too much from seeing your sides smashed ;-; sobs)

Status: Ongoing Type: Author: , Released: 2014 Native Language: Chinese
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

      I don’t think this constitutes as a spoiler since it isn’t shown in the story, but this story has pretty much no focus on past Louis and MJZ’s relationship (much to my disappointment)
