Chapter 248 - I Don't Trust You

Bai Di won Huanhuan. That night, she slept with him.

Due to the fact that Huanhuan was still carrying babies in her stomach, the two of them could only sleep under the blanket and chat. Other than that, they could not do anything else.

Even so, Bai Di felt content.

The next morning, Xue Hui came to visit Huanhuan. She saw Huanhuan’s rosy complexion and smiled. “You’re in good spirits. It seems that your mates have been taking good care of you.”

Huanhuan smiled generously. “They’re indeed good to me.”

Shuang Yun and Bai Di had gone down the mountain to work today, while Sang Ye and Xue Ling stayed at home.

The children had run out early to play and wouldn’t be back until lunchtime.

Xue Hui sat down by the bed. She glanced at Xue Ling and Sang Ye beside her and smiled. “Can I talk to Huanhuan alone?”

Before Sang Ye could speak, Xue Ling refused. “No.”

Xue Mei raised her eyebrows. “Why?”

Xue Ling said frankly, “I don’t trust you.”

“Are you worried that I’ll hurt Huanhuan? This is your territory. I won’t let myself die like this.”

Xue Ling still refused to change his mind. “No matter what you say, I won’t let you be alone with Huanhuan. You can say what you have to say now. Huanhuan still has to rest later. She can’t waste too much time on you.”

Xue Hui laughed in anger. “We females have to talk privately. You’re a mal beast, why are you standing here?”

“You can pretend I’m invisible.”

“I’d rather you go out immediately.”

Xue Ling leaned against the wall and smiled lazily. “This is my house. You’re the one who should go out.”

Xue Hui’s eyes were filled with undisguised disdain. “I’ve never seen a male beast as rude to a female as you are. No wonder you’re single until now. You deserve it!”

She held Huanhuan’s hand and sighed. “It must be hard for you to tolerate his temper. If it were me, I would have beaten him up.”

Huanhuan thought for a moment. “Actually, I want to beat him up sometimes. Unfortunately, I can’t beat him.”

Xue Ling smiled. “If you want to hit me, just say it. I promise I’ll stand still and let you hit me. I won’t fight back.”

Huanhuan shook her head. “Forget it.”

Xue Hui said, “Why? You have to beat him up mercilessly when it’s necessary. Otherwise, he’ll become more and more arrogant. Sooner or later, he’ll bully you!”

Huanhuan hesitated. “But with his personality, the more I beat him up, the more excited he’ll be, right?”

Xue Ling’s eyes lit up. “Huanhuan knows me best!”

Xue Hui: “…”

She was speechless.

Although Xue Ling always said sharp words to Xue Hui, Huanhuan could sense that the two of them were very good friends. She asked Sang Ye to wash some sweet fruits and bring them over.

Huanhuan said slowly, “We don’t have anything good in our house. We only have these fruits that we planted. I hope you don’t mind.”

Most beasts did not know how to be polite.

Xue Hui casually grabbed a sweet fruit and nodded as she ate. “It’s very sweet and delicious!”

Huanhuan smiled. “Eat more if you like.”

Xue Hui ate five sweet fruits in one go before stopping. She said, “I’ve heard that the ones planted in the rock mountain are especially delicious. I didn’t believe it at first, but now that I’ve tried them myself, they’re really delicious.”

“When you leave later, I’ll send you some more sweet fruits.”

Xue Mei sighed. “I really hope your fruits and vegetables can be sold in Divine Wood City too.”

Huanhuan asked, “I heard that the beasts in Divine Wood City like to eat vegetables. Is that true?”

“That’s right. Most of the beasts living in Divine Wood City are herbivores. Some of them are omnivores. Compared to meat, we prefer to eat fruits and vegetables. The fruits and vegetables you plant here are of good quality. If you sell them to Divine Wood City, many beasts will definitely fight to buy them.”

Huanhuan’s mind raced. The Divine Wood City was a big market. If she could open up a sales channel, she would definitely be able to earn a lot of crystals in the future.

Xue Hui could tell that she was tempted. She smiled and said, “If you trust me, I can help you contact the Golden Leaf Chamber of Commerce’s branch manager in Divine Wood City. With them in charge of transporting the goods, your vegetables and fruits can be sent to Divine Wood City.”

Huanhuan’s eyes lit up. “Really? Thank you so much!”

“You’re my kind. You should help each other.”

Huanhuan was stunned and looked puzzled. “I’m your kind?”

Xue Mei’s smile became gentler. “That’s right. You and I are descendants of the Divine Wood clan. Of course, we’re from the same race.”

Huanhuan did not understand when she had become a descendant of the Divine Wood clan. She was about to explain that she was not a member of the Divine Wood clan when she heard Xue Ling cough lightly. He said, “Huanhuan hasn’t admitted her identity yet. Don’t rashly acknowledge her.”

Xue Hui glanced at him and said angrily, “She has the aura of the Divine Wood. She must be a descendant of our Divine Wood clan. Whether she admits it or not, it’s the truth.”

Huanhuan wanted to say that she had misunderstood, but she noticed Xue Ling’s gaze and guessed that he probably didn’t want her to tell the truth.

Hence, she had no choice but to shut up and let the misunderstanding continue.

Xue Ran held Huanhuan’s hand, and her gaze was very kind. “The number of our race is decreasing. It’s a pleasant surprise to find you here. When you return to the Divine Wood City with me, the elders of the tribe will definitely be happy to see you.”

Huanhuan quickly said, “I’m pregnant now. I can’t go to Divine Wood City with you.”

Hearing this, Xue Hui couldn’t help but be disappointed. “That’s right. You’re not suitable to travel far now. You can’t come with me to the Divine Wood City to meet the other tribesmen.”

Xue Ling said coldly, “Even if Huanhuan gives birth, you can’t just take her away.”

Xue Hui said righteously, “She’s a descendant of the Divine Wood clan. She should follow me to Divine Wood City. If you can’t bear to part with her, you can live in Divine Wood City with her.”

Xue Ling had no intention of explaining too much to her and only replied with a sentence.

“Whatever. I’ll be wherever Huanhuan is.”

Xue Hui began to describe the various advantages of Divine Wood City to Huanhuan. She also talked about how friendly and enthusiastic the people of the Divine Wood clan were. In any case, she did her best to persuade her to settle down in Divine Wood City.

Huanhuan was indeed planning to go to Divine Wood City. She still had a mission there.

But not now.

More importantly, she never intended to settle in Divine Wood City.

She couldn’t say these thoughts out loud, though. She maintained a sweet smile. “I understand what you’re saying. I’ll think about it.”
