Tamer: I built a home on the back of the Black Tortoise. - Chapter 13
Chapter 13: The dumbfounded girl.
Time went back to ten minutes ago.
In a wooden shelter on the outskirts of the camp.
Mino swiftly skinned all the little lizards and three mice, removed their internal organs, tied them with ropes, and hung them on the fire pit to smoke.
Then she rubbed her palms with sand to remove blood from her hands.
Since there was no water to wash her hands, she could only use sand to clean up the dirt.
“What is taking Mu Liang so long? Where exactly did he go?”
Mino’s blue eyes stared at the door of the wooden shelter in a daze.
“It’s been a long time. Is something wrong with him?”
It took about an hour for the girl to deal with small lizards and mice
Now that Mino had nothing to do, she started feeling worried because she had not seen Mu Liang for a long time.
Or rather, she felt insecure because she was lonely.
“Aiya! Mu Liang is so powerful. He will definitely be fine.”
Mino shook her little head and forced herself to calm down.
She focused her attention on the wooden shelter and thought about how to move the things from it.
“This pillow and this quilt made of wild rabbit’s skin have to be taken away.”
“The beds also need to be moved, otherwise there will be no beds to sleep on.”
“This wooden bowl should also be brought, and this wooden barrel can hold the water.”
Mino looked around and felt that she was unwilling to throw anything away. She even wanted to take away the door of the wooden shelter.
Everything in this wooden shelter was collected and built by her sister, bit by bit.
Suddenly, a scraping sound came from the wooden door, and it was pushed open in the next second.
A blurry figure squeezed in.
“Who?” Mino’s face changed. However, she reacted very quickly and pulled out the bone blade from her waist.
Then she retreated to the other side of the wooden shed.
“Hiss~~” The tricolored lizard hissed a few times and its body emerged from its invisible state.
“You, you…… You are Xiao Cai?” Mino looked at the strange-looking tricolored lizard in astonishment.
She hesitated for a moment and said, “If you are Xiao Cai, then nod.”
The tricolored lizard ignored her, twisted its body, and used its claws to pull the rope tied to its belly.
“Stupid, who else has the ability to let a lizard carry things except for Mu Liang?”
Mino thought for a moment and realized that she was being stupid.
She put away the bone blade, stepped forward, and said, “Let me help you.”
When the three-colored lizard saw that the girl was approaching, it obediently stopped twisting its body and let her untie the five rolls of cloth, wolf skin, and a sword.
Then it turned around and went out of the wooden shed to carry more things for its wicked master.
“Hey? Where’s Mu Liang?” Mino quickly asked, but the tricolored lizard left without looking back.
Although the tamed animals had evolved and they had developed intelligence, their intelligence was equivalent to two or three years old children. How could they understand Mino’s words?
“It seems like you can’t understand me at all.” Mino sighed helplessly.
Then she focused her attention on the five rolls of cloth, the wolf’s skin, and the sword.
Mino rubbed the cloth, and her blue eyes sparkled as she commented, “These clothes are so soft. They should be made of beast fur.”
“It’s just that, where did Mu Liang get all these clothes? Dozens of sets of clothes can be made from five rolls of cloth.”
The young girl reluctantly put down the cloth and picked up the wolf skin. It was longer than her height.
“This wolf skin is definitely from a vicious beast.”
Mino hugged the wolf’s skin excitedly. Then she wondered: “How did Mu Liang get these things?”
She couldn’t help but guess, “Could it be that the chief gave these things as a reward because Mu Liang told him about Bloodbeard’s attack??”
The girl felt that only this guess could explain the origin of these things.
After a while, Mino put down the wolf skin and picked up the sword instead.
“This kind of sword is only used by the hunting team.”
Mino felt that her guess was correct.
The familiar scene happened once again, and the door of the wooden shelter was pushed open.
This time, the tricolored lizard came in carrying a cloth bag.
Mino rushed forward to help it untie the cloth bag, and then she watched as the tricolored lizard left.
She curiously opened the mouth of the bag. “What’s inside?”
“Eh eh eh??” Mino froze.
The whole bag was full of dried meat.
Suddenly, the girl felt that her guess was not accurate. How could a piece of news make the chief so generous?
“Mu Liang didn’t go to the chief’s house to steal things, did he?”
Mino looked down at the dried meat in the cloth bag and then she twisted her head to look at the five rolls of cloth, as well as the sword and wolf skin.
That haughty chief would never reward these things.
“Mu Liang must have stolen these things.”
Mino quickly tied up the cloth bag and stuffed it under the bed just in case someone came to search for it later.
“Let’s just hide for the night and leave right before dawn tomorrow.”
“Mu Liang is really too much. He shouldn’t steal so many things, even if we are leaving.”
“Why don’t we move to the back of Little Black Tortoise overnight and hide there?”
“Mm, this is a good idea. I’ll discuss it with Mu Liang when he comes back.”
Mino hid everything and walked around the wooden shed as she thought about how to hide these things.
As for returning these things?
That was not possible.
Since Mu Liang had stolen these things based on his ability, she had no intention of returning them.
