The fat and chubby Brother Rabbit hopped a couple of steps, before turning back anxiously to look at his brother.
Silently gesturing for his brother to go ahead, Eim continued hiding behind a pile of snow. Brother Rabbit could only muster his courage and brave forward.
“He looks very anxious.” Hiding next to Eim, Black quietly asked. “Are you sure he’s up to the job?”
“Don’t worry and leave it to Brother! We have been hunting together for five year now. Other than failing the first few times because of our lack of coordination, there has never been a time where we failed.”
Eim patted his chest, not thinking much. “Brother is delicious looking, so he’ll definitely attract those guys over here!”
The trembling big rabbit was jumping forward little by little. Every time he landed on the ground, his flabby meaty butt would shake along with his big ears.
Meng Jiuzhao couldn’t help swallowing some saliva.
Really, he really looked delicious.
The snow white rabbit finally reached the Utah Raptor’s territory.
There, 5 Utah Raptors were fighting over an animal’s leg. All over the snowy ground were blood splatters, showing that a brutal massacre just took place.
Brother Rabbit started trembling even harder now.
But he still remembered that he had a mission, so as usual, he approached his targets in an enticing fashion, jumping back and forth before them.
Usually, when he jumped about, the other party would usually take notice of him and start chasing him around frantically.
Brother Rabbit was long prepared to escape.
But in the end, his target didn’t even give him a glance.
He turned his head to look at where his little brother was hiding, before jumping back to the Utah Raptors.
There was still no reaction…
Brother Rabbit, who couldn’t believe this, jumped a couple more rounds, but the Utah Raptors were still scrambling for the other half of the animal’s leg, not paying him any attention.
The leg of meat was quickly won by one of them, and the Utah Raptors prepared to leave.
A fat and tasty looking rabbit is standing in front of you, yet you actually, decided, to, leave–
His. Temptation. Was. Actually. Being. Ignored?!
Brother Rabbit’s confidence took a great blow.
( ⊙ o ⊙)
“Brother… Is too small…” After waiting for half a day yet seeing no prey referring to the raptors come over, Eim followed behind his brother.
Seeing the difference in size between his brother and their prey, Eim couldn’t help shrinking back. “Do you think we can really catch them? Those guys… They’re much bigger than us…”
As cubs who were still developing, Black and White’s original forms were indeed slightly smaller than those raptors. In fact, they were smaller than the largest one of that group.
“And look at those teeth, how sharp…” Even from afar, he could see an entire mouthful of sharp teeth. The more he looked, the more the densely packed teeth frightened Eim.
“Our teeth are much sharper than theirs!” White retorted. He even wanted to show his beautiful big teeth, but remembered after he opened his mouth that 2 of his teeth had dropped a few days ago. Hence he could only sullenly close his mouth.
“We are stronger than them. Although they are good at running, their stamina is far inferior to ours. We also have those traps.” Sensing his partner’s dejection, Black immediately listed their advantages. Seeing White cheer up quickly, he heaved a small sigh of relief.
“You’re right! Our stamina is good! Also, we have the best traps!” Eim, who was just frightened, cheered up even faster than White.
Seeing how Eim’s eyes sparkled as he looked at the group of Utah Raptors, Meng Jiuzhao was dumbfounded: Hey! The “we” that Black and White are referring to and the “we” you are referring to aren’t the same people alright! Wake up, you rabbit! You have been deceived!
“What do we do, they’re about to leave.” Seeing the backs of the raptors shrink in size, Eim felt anxious.
Although the method of digging traps to hunt sounded like a great idea, there was a flaw- the prey had to be led to the traps. If their prey left, all their effort would be wasted.
“I’ll be the bait this time.” Eim stood up.
After giving him a critical look all over, White shook his head, “That’s not possible. You don’t look the least bit appetizing.”
As a connoisseur of all types of food (are you sure?), White’s comment was straight to the point.
“You’re just a sack of bones, with little meat on your arms. You even have more muscles than meat. The tastiest part of the body, the butt- doesn’t even have a single bit of fat. Other than an old Utah Raptor who has gone blind from hunger, no one else will be interested in your meat.”
White’s comments pierced through Eim’s heart deeply.
If it was possible, he also wanted to be a fat rabbit with glossy skin. After all, that looked delicious(you’re mistaken)! But what could he do if he was naturally unable to gain weight! trade your body with me is what you can do. I gain your physique, and you gain my flabby bits. I think that’s a pretty good deal!… Sorry, I couldn’t help interjecting here…
Eim wanted to cry, but there were no tears
“Alright then, you guys be the bait.” Eim compromised. “However, do you know how to act as bait? It’s very difficult, you know.”
“Slowly approach the other party by walking over?” White remembered what Eim’s brother did.
He felt that approaching his prey wasn’t a difficult task, but what was difficult was making them think that he was delicious and willingly come up to chase them and fall into the pits.
“Don’t underestimate the power of the bait, they’re not easy to be.” Eim cleared his throat and started teaching.
“Firstly, you must very carefully approach your target and act as if you’re unaware of their existence. Make it seem as if you’re silly and an easy catch. Sometimes, when the target is full, they may not be willing to waste their physical strength to catch more prey. At this moment, you will have to display your figure in a way that makes them think that you’re really delicious.
“That’s not all, the real action starts from this. When the target starts chasing you, you need to start running! You have to outrun your target! Oh right! Are you able to outrun the Utah Raptors? Those monsters run pretty quickly–”
Suddenly thinking of this, Eim anxiously asked.
“Don’t worry! We run very quickly!” White said proudly.
“Remember to lure them here!” Looking at White’s face full of confidence, Eim nodded his head.
Thus, their forces were split into 2, with Eim being responsible for guarding the trap while Black and White went to act as bait to lure their prey.
Under Eim’s slightly worried gaze, Black and White chased in the direction the Utah Raptors left.
Black and White who entered their hunting state seemed like entirely different people.
Meng Jiuzhao was held in Black’s arms. He felt the atmosphere around this pair of cubs becoming unfamiliar. It became cold, awe-inspiring, and dangerous.
He wasn’t the only one who noticed. Even Louis who was carried by White no longer looked around. Just like his two fathers, his little eyes fixed onto the direction the Utah Raptors went.
Having an example to follow, Meng Jiuzhao slowed his breathing, holding on tightly to Black. He also fixed his eyes in the same direction.
Although Black and White were still very young, they were already very good at hunting. Losing their father’s protection at a young age, the cubs were forced to provide for themselves from a young age.
Other cubs had the protection of their father and were chasing after injured prey brought back by their father, but these two had already started fighting on their own.
If their hunt failed, a lenient punishment would be an injury, while a serious one was death.
Even so, they had to continue hunting.
Newborn Kantas cubs were much smaller than their counterparts of other species.
In order to grow into the behemoths they would be in decades, they had to eat more than an average dinosaur. This was the only way only way to maintain the regular functioning of their body.
Food was even more important to Kantases who were still cubs. Adequate food meant adequate energy. Energy was was the only thing that allowed them to freely transform between their human forms anad original forms.
If they did not eat their fill, their growth would be stunted, and their feathers would shed.
If this continued for long periods, it would even cause them to be unable to transform back to their original forms for the rest of their lives.
A Kantas who was stuck in their humanoid form was labelled as trash.
They didn’t need to be taught this. It was instinct that kept them hunting.
They ran slightly faster than the Utah Raptors, and the raptors were already behind them. They only needed to wait for a few minutes before the raptors appeared before them.
Black and White gave each other a look. Their long standing cooperation made them very well aware of each other’s thoughts.
Black continued standing on the spot, while White went over to the middle of the Utah Raptors’ path.
White, who was pretentiously walking on the side of their path, ran into the group of Utah Raptors very quickly.
White’s human form was tall, only slightly shorter than those Utah Raptors.
If I’m this big, I should be able to attract the attention of those Utah Raptors~
Thinking like this, White raised his vigilance.
His opponents were 5 adult Utah Raptors. If they decided to all pounce at once, even he wouldn’t be able to hold on completely on his own.
But his goal right now wasn’t a 5 on 1, but to simply attract their attention. Then when they chased after him, he would bring them over to the traps they made.
While White was carefully scrutinizing the Utah Raptors, they were also identifying him.
Meat that we’ve never eaten before ← This was their first impression of White
I don’t want to try it either ← This was their second impression of White
Since we’ve already had our fill, let’s go on ahead ← The Utah Raptors made their decision
Thus, just as White was prepared to run away, the Utah Raptors bypassed him and continued on their way
A delicious looking Kantas is standing in front of you, yet you are, actually, leaving–
His. Temptation. Was. Actually. Being. Ignored?!
And so, White’s confidence suffered a tremendous blow.
At this moment, his emotions were in sync with Brother Rabbit.
