POA Ch 64

Giving Dad Some Love

The weather was truly starting to warm up. This process was gradual, mainly reflected in the changes in the earth [1]earth referring to ground, I still don’t really know what this planet is called and number of animals. The ice sheet which was formed over an unknown number of years also slowly melted, acting as a sign that winter had passed.


The earth had stripped off its silvery white layer and was now covered in green.


Life hasn’t been good for the beastmen. Everyone’s hair was falling, and because it fell too quickly, many of them started having bald spots. 


To these beastmen who were born and raised in the cold climate, there was nothing more uncomfortable than having their fur fall. The thick fur that had accompanied them since birth suddenly got lighter, making even walking uncomfortable. 


Louis wasn’t spared either, but because of the brush that Meng Jiuzhao specially made for him, any falling hairs would be brushed off in time and he still had the external appearance of an ordinary chick. Because of this, Meng Jiuzhao’s brush got popular throughout the tribe.


The adult beastmen were wary of the changes in their surroundings.


Many never seen before plants started sprouting from the ground, and while hunting, they encountered many creatures they didn’t know of. This piece of land suddenly seemed to have become foreign. They tried adapting to the changes in their environment, but these changes were too fast for them to adapt to.


On the other hand, the cubs were extremely carefree. They felt that the surroundings have become so fun!


This was a period where they were hyperactive. Their teachers were not free all day and on occasions when the adults did not pay attention to them, the cubs would sneak out. Slowly, the area they ventured got further and further.


Although he knew that this was possibly dangerous, Meng Jiuzhao’s desire to see the outside world was too strong, so he silently acquiesced to their exploration.


Under his request, the cubs followed the flow of the river and expanded their scope of exploration.


The riverbanks were naturally suited for the growth of plants, and Meng Jiuzhao discovered 4 different types of edible plants one after another!


The first type of plant he discovered was the Earthflower. Just like its name suggested, it was green all over, but looked like a small, blooming flower. 


The Earthflower grew on Earth for tens of thousands of years, and had strong vitality. The moment Meng Jiuzhao found the flower, Paula snatched it away.


Meng Jiuzhao was thankful to see from this that the female cubs of the tribe still had a feminine side to them.


“So pretty!” Paula refused to let go of the flower after she snatched it away.


The people of the Vash Tribe had never seen such things like “flowers” before, but they instinctively knew that this form was beautiful.


Naki and the other girls who didn’t manage to snatch the flower stopped and squatted at the riverbed to search for more. In the end, they really managed to find a few more flowers. Those flowers were extremely small, obviously just grown.


“What is this?” Tucking the flower next to her ear, Coco turned to ask Meng Jiuzhao, “Can you eat it?”


After all, she wasn’t a girl from Meng Jiuzhao’s era. The girls here cared more about practicality.


“… Yes.” He nodded.


The girls who got his reply immediately cheered and went to look for more of them.


The Earthflower’s rhizome and lower leaves could be eaten, and the other leaves could be made into medicine for pain and stasis, and could even cure, abnormal, periods.


You girls would definitely need it in the future. [2]I need it now pretty please?


Probably… maybe… perhaps…?


Looking at the girls jumping up and down, Meng Jiuzhao decided not to talk about the effects of the Earthflowers.


Although the Earthflowers were pretty, they weren’t tasty to eat raw. Meng Jiuzhao later discovered a fruit that was delicious on its own. The fruit looked like a persimmon and tasted like a persimmon, but grew in the soil. Meng Jiuzhao thought that they were peanuts, but when he pulled them out of the ground, he pulled out a long string of fruit.


The fruit was named after herself by the domineering Paula.


Listening to everyone say stuff like “I ate three Paulas today” was… 


Well, if Paula herself didn’t mind it, he shouldn’t say anything either.


Discovering these plants were at best finding that there was dessert after dinner, the surprise came later!


They found a herd of horned sheep!


Horned sheep were picky animals, only willing to eat fresh grass and fruits. The barren Vash continent was unable to accommodate such squeamish residents, so the number of horned sheep they had hunted were very little.


However, the flesh of a horned sheep was really tender and delicious. Even the oldest horned sheep would still be as tender as prime horned cattle. The first time he had horned sheep, White was stunned! Although Black’s expression wasn’t shown on his face, he couldn’t help eating even the bones.


After that, they rarely ate horned sheep.


The horned sheep hunted by the tribe were only allocated to families with cubs, and the portion they got was strictly for Meng Jiuzhao to eat.


As a pure-bred human being, his teeth could not be compared with those of anyone else in the tribe. To him, horned sheep meat was moderate in texture. After noticing that his bald cub’s acceptance for horned sheep meat was particularly high, Black and White would save up every bit of horned sheep they obtained for Meng Jiuzhao to eat, and even Louis was only able to get a tiny bit each time.


This was why, since young, Meng Jiuzhao’s dream was to hunt a horned sheep everyday for his dads to eat!


However, there were very few horned sheep near the tribe, so it was very precious…


In such a situation, a herd of soft and fluffy horned sheep actually appeared in front of him!


Meng Jiuzhao was moved to tears!


The Vash Tribe’s Youth Killer Legion set off and hunted 3 horned sheep at once!


The 5 girls got the largest and smallest horned sheep, while the Kantas brothers got the middle sized one.


The girls immediately finished the horned sheep that afternoon.


Holding back his saliva, Meng Jiuzhao dragged the horned sheep back with Louis.


Recently, aside from going out daily with the tribesmen to explore their territory and look for food, they would go out far to practise flying without the others’ noticing, so they usually returned later than the other tribesmen.


However, their bald cub and Louis were sensible children, whenever the tribe had dinner, there would be jerky left in their nest, so they didn’t worry that their cubs would starve.


But thinking back to the times when they depended on each other after Dad left, hugging each other every night while trembling, they couldn’t help quickening their footsteps.


White was the first to reach their nest. The moment he entered, he stepped on something soft, giving him a fright. Immediately braking, he didn’t forget to block Black from entering as he hurriedly looked towards the floor–


He immediately saw his two cubs.


Louis chirped aggrievedly, getting up to shake his butt twice. Only when his feathers that were trampled flat by Dad stood back up did he regain his happiness.


Thank goodness it was Louis he stepped on– White thought distressingly.


Black hurriedly pulled the cubs over to check, especially their bald cub. He looked all over, even lifting their animal skin clothes to look underneath. Only after making sure that the 2 weren’t injured by White’s feet did he heave a sigh of relief.


Meng Jiuzhao flushed as he pulled his clothes back down, before tugging on Black for him to look down.


Only then did they notice that there was actually a horned sheep on the ground?


“But we didn’t see any horned sheep today ah?” This was the first thought in Black’s mind. In order to feed their squeamish cub more of his favourite food, Black and White always paid attention to any trails of horned sheep.


“Who gave this to you?”


He was waiting for Black to ask this.


Meng Jiuzhao immediately puffed up his little chest in pride.


“Dad, Louis and I hunted it! I said before that I would get you a horned sheep to eat everyday!”


Black and White were greatly shocked!


One had to know that horned sheep weren’t just a little difficult to find! Not to mention that horned sheep were really agile!


Being able to find a horned sheep and successfully hunt it was proof of being a good hunter!


Both Dads immediately became happy, and White lifted up the horned sheep. What a good catch! It’s even heavier than their bald cub! But…


Why was this horned sheep’s wool… so wet?


Switching the hand he used to grab the sheep, White frowned as he gave his empty hand a sniff: it was full of the scent of Louis’ saliva.


“Uh… When we were waiting for you to come back, Louis got hungry…” 


He stared at the delicious looking sheep all day long, wanting to eat it yet not being allowed to. So every time he couldn’t bear it, he would give the sheep a lick, and when he couldn’t bear it again, he would give it another lick–


He licked it all over a couple of times, and by the time Black and White returned home, a layer of wool had already been licked off the sheep.


“If you were hungry then you should have eaten it! This is something you hunted!” Looking at Louis gaze pitifully at him, Black laughed. Who knew–


“No, this horned sheep is for Dad to eat. We won’t eat it, it’s only for Dad!” Baby firmly refused, and Louis also chirped in agreement.


Looking at their cubs’ fawning eyes, Black and White felt their hearts soften just like the horned sheep’s wool. (←Of course, referring to the wool before it was licked wet by Louis)


Hence, under his cubs’ stares, the 2 Dads split the horned sheep into half, one for each person. Not even leaving the bones, they finished eating everything.


This was the most delicious thing they have eaten in their entire lives!


The two young Kantases thought blissfully.


They were extremely inexperienced due to losing their dad at an early age. While they were still ignorant children, they ended up with their own eggs. 


Just living was already difficult enough, but now they had two even younger cubs. With one of them being an exceptionally weak human, the difficulties they faced could be imagined.


No one thought that they would be able to raise these two cubs safely, not even Gulunza who wished them luck when they parted.


While raising their cubs, they endured difficult times with food shortages, the horrifying earthquake and even the biggest danger for Kantas cubs– losing fur and teeth.


In the above situations, even an adult Kantas might have abandoned their cubs to ensure their lives.


But these inexperienced cubs chose to persevere.


They didn’t have experience, so they could only shower their cubs with love.


And now they received in return the love of the cubs they raised. Even more love.



Translator has something to say:

I fell sick for a bit and realised the months was over when I recovered. Then I realised school was starting and was suddenly swamped with a bunch of commitments I forgot about ;-;

How do adults even manage to juggle all their busy schedules


1 earth referring to ground, I still don’t really know what this planet is called
2 I need it now pretty please?

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
