Supreme Crazy Wife - Chapter 44
“As long as Xue’er believes Big Brother,” Leng Ruohan said with relief.
“Big Brother, aren’t you going to tell Xue’er what happened?” Leng Ruoxue asked.
“Xue’er, let the matter pass since things have developed to this point. It’s enough as long as Xue’er believes me.” Although he wanted to tell the truth, he didn’t want to make things difficult for his master, nor did he want to damage his academy’s reputation because of a few black sheep.
“I’ll listen to Big Brother,” Leng Ruoxue coaxed. She knew that her brother had concerns and would rather suffer himself. But she didn’t have any. Hmph, let the matter pass? It’s not going to be that easy. How can I let anyone who bullies the Leng Family off so easily? Do they really think that the Leng family are pushovers?
“Big Brother, it’s getting late. You should rest early. Xue’er will visit you tomorrow.”
“Okay. Big Brother will sleep now and wait for Xue’er to come tomorrow.” Leng Ruohan didn’t want Xue’er to worry.
Leng Ruoxue watched her brother fall asleep on the bed with her own eyes before leaving with Ye Chen.
“Xue’er, do you really intend to let this matter pass?” Ye Chen asked curiously.
“What do you think?” Leng Ruoxue asked rhetorically.
“No matter what you want to do, don’t leave me behind. You have to count me in.” Ye Chen didn’t believe that this protective little woman would let those fellows who made her elder brother the scapegoat go unscathed!
“Okay, no problem,” Leng Ruoxue said generously. Why should I decline if someone is willing to be a free goon?
“Come up,” Leng Ruoxue said to Ye Chen as she sat on Quill’s back.
“Where are we going?” Ye Chen was curious.
“Misty Woods,” Leng Ruoxue’s pink lips softly murmured.
The Misty Woods was one of the many medium-sized forests in the Eastern Lagoon Empire. It was incomparable to the Illusionary Forest, regardless of size and the population, types, and levels of spirit beasts. The Misty Woods was much safer than the Illusionary Forest, and it was very close to Phoenix City. As a result, the Heavenly Phoenix Academy often regarded the Misty Woods as a training ground for new students. She had learned from Ming An that her brother met with the accident in the Misty Woods.
“Are we going hunting in the Misty Woods at this late hour?” Ye Chen teased.
“Yes, hunting,” Leng Ruoxue said lightly.
After flying for less than half an hour, Quill brought them to the entrance of the Misty Woods.
“Quill, find a spirit beast and ask where the fire rhinoceroses’ territory is,” Leng Ruoxue said directly.
“Yes, Master.” Quill’s sharp eagle eyes searched around and found an owl hiding in a tree.
Quill flew directly to the front of the owl and asked, “Where is the territory of the fire rhinoceroses?”
“This in-insignificant beast will bring you there,” the one-meter tall owl said while trembling in fear.
“Th-this is it,” the timid owl said.
“Thank you. This is your reward.” Leng Ruoxue threw a spirit fruit to the timid owl.
The owl opened its mouth to catch the fruit, nodded in gratitude, and quickly flew away.
“Quill, go and capture a fire rhinoceros for me,” Leng Ruoxue ordered. The fire rhinoceroses should be asleep, so she had to lure them out.
“Yes.” Quill flew around in the sky and then swooped down. A chubby fiery red rhinoceros appeared in his sharp claws when he flew up again.
Fire rhinoceroses were fire-attribute rhinoceroses. They were mostly intermediate spirit beasts, but a small number of them were advanced spirit beasts of level seven and above. The fire rhinoceros caught by Quill was a level seven spirit beast.
“W-who are you people?” the fire rhinoceros stammered.
“Don’t be scared. We just want to have a chat with you,” Leng Ruoxue said with a smile.
“I-I have nothing to talk about with humans,” the fire rhinoceros said fearfully. How could it not be afraid? There was a holy beast eyeing it covetously next to it. Boohoo…
“Xue’er, I’m hungry. Let’s roast it and eat it. It seems to have a lot of meat, so it should taste good.” Ye Chen looked at the fire rhinoceros lying on the ground.
“Yes, I heard that fire rhinoceros meat is very delicious. I haven’t eaten it before!” Leng Ruoxue said cooperatively.
“It’s more than that. The hide of fire rhinoceroses is also very valuable. So are their horns. They are all good raw materials for making equipment,” Ye Chen commented critically about fire rhinoceroses.
“One probably isn’t enough to eat, right? Why don’t we catch a few more? We can bring them back for Grandpa and the others to try,” Leng Ruoxue said.
“Master, I’m going to catch more.” Quill flew up again.
In less than half an hour, Quill caught more than a dozen fire rhinoceroses, each of them a level seven spirit beast.
“Quill, well done,” Leng Ruoxue praised. Her beast was so smart and knew to capture advanced beasts. Spirit beasts with intelligence were more interesting.
“Xue’er, which one should we grill?” Ye Chen asked expectantly.
“I’ll leave it to you to decide.” Leng Ruoxue started a fire.
“This one… this one… they’re all quite fat. Which one should I choose?” Ye Chen murmured to himself as he circled the fire rhinoceroses.
The captured fire rhinoceroses all lowered their heads, afraid that they would be chosen by this nasty man.
“Since they’re all good, just pick any one,” Leng Ruoxue suggested.
“Then this one. It’s the fattest one.” Ye Chen pointed at a 200-kilogram fire rhinoceros and kicked it out.
After being kicked, the fat fire rhinoceros rolled to Leng Ruoxue’s feet like a ball.
“Let’s let out some blood first.” Leng Ruoxue held a sharp dagger in her hand and gestured at the fat fire rhinoceros.
“Boohoo… Don’t eat me. My flesh stinks and isn’t delicious.” The fat fire rhinoceros whimpered and sobbed.
“Where should I start? This is it.” Leng Ruoxue thought for a long time before finally deciding on the spot to insert her knife. It was the fat fire rhinoceros’s butt. She raised her dagger and stabbed it fiercely.
“Aaahhhh!” A shrill scream echoed through the entire forest.
“Who’s bullying my fire rhinoceros tribe!” A loud roar resounded from the distance.
“You’re finally out. It would have been better if you had cooperated earlier,” Leng Ruoxue said with satisfaction after seeing that she had achieved her goal. They had caught so many fire rhinoceroses, but the fire rhinoceros king had actually pretended to be dead.
