Chapter 46: The amazing bounty for crystal fish.
Li Yue’s face flushed red, and her head could not help but come out from the animal skin quilt. She leaned her ears to hear the cries of surprise coming from the hall.
Her heart itching with curiosity, and she murmured, “Should we go out and see what the crystal fish look like?”
Regarding the appearance of the crystal fish, the white-haired girl had only seen it from the description of the reward issued by the Moon Lake tribe, and had never seen what the crystal fish really looked like.
“Let’s go take a look.” Li Yue couldn’t resist her curiosity, got up and cleaned up a bit, and lightly went to the door.
The white-haired girl poked out half of her head and looked at the corner of the hall. She discovered that the two of them were chatting in front of the large bathtub.
Mu Liang’s perception caught the white-haired girl, and beckoned sideways: “Li Yue, come and say hello to the new member of our family.”
“Oh, I’m coming.” Li Yue bit her lower lip, and walked over with her pretty blushing face.
In her brain at this time, there was no option to refuse.
Seeing the approach of the white-haired girl, Mino made a space for Mu Liang who was clinging next to her.
Li Yue approached and whispered, “Thank you.”
“No, no need.” Mino waved her hand nervously.
Li Yue smiled slightly, looked down at the half-meter-long crystal fish in the large bath tub, and a stunned look appeared on her cool expression.
Was the crystal fish that big?
Why wasn’t it the same as the description on the Moon Lake Tribe’s bounty?
What about the palm-sized crystal fish?
Mu Liang turned his head to see the white-haired girl’s shocked look, and said in a wicked way: “Is it different from the crystal fish you know?”
“It’s totally different, it’s too big.” Li Yue didn’t see the wicked grin on someone’s face, otherwise she would have been able to think of something.
“I’ve been meaning to ask, what did the Moon Lake tribe use as a bounty for the crystal fish?” Mu Liang asked.
After all, the crystal fish could condense water, so it was not too much to say that it was a treasure bowl.
In the post-apocalyptic world of the wasteland, water could also be used as a trading currency, and was still a universal currency.
“The seat of an elder of the Moon Lake Tribe, can control one-twentieth of the water produced by the crystal fish in the future, a large house, twenty slaves, and ten thousand pounds of dried meat……”
Li Yue wrinkled her snow-white eyebrows as she recalled, coldly talking about the contents of the reward.
“Okay, don’t read it anymore.” Mu Liang rubbed his eyebrows, and the Moon Lake tribe really made a lot of money.
With such a sky-high bounty, even he was moved by what he heard, let alone others.
Mino was even more stunned, her blue eyes staring at the crystal fish in the big bathtub.
In her mind, the words ‘10,000 pounds of dried meat’ echoed.
“So, you should understand by now that the crystal fish will definitely attract many people’s prying eyes.”
Li Yue saw Mu Liang’s distressed expression, and the corners of her mouth curved slightly.
She quickly stopped smiling and warned with a serious face: “Especially, the seat of the elders of the Moon Lake Tribe represents a position above ten thousand people, and can attract many ambitious and capable people.”
“It seems that I have to do more preparations.” Mu Liang decided to overturn the content of the previous plan.
“No? You’re still going to the Moon Lake tribe?”
Li Yue was stunned. Why was it different from what she had thought?
The white-haired girl persuaded earnestly, “It will be very dangerous for you to bring the crystal fish there. There is no need to go to the Moon Lake Tribe. You can go to other tribes.”
“Other tribes? Are there any larger tribes than the Moon Lake tribe?” Mu Liang asked curiously.
“There is, about twenty days to the east at the present speed, there is a golden lion tribe.” Li Yue pointed in the direction of the side of the rock-armored turtles.
“Twenty days? It’s too far.” Mu Liang thought about it and shook his head.
He urgently needed a large amount of beast crystals, so he didn’t want to waste too much time on his journey.
As long as there were a large number of evolution points, the Moon Lake Tribe was not the least bit of threat.
“It’s about being far enough away to avoid the most dangerous times.”
Li Yue’s original intention was to let Mu Liang avoid the tight wind and the turmoil caused by Blood Beard’s loss of the crystal fish.
Let the many forces think that the people who stole the crystal fish have already disappeared far away, and wait for some time before trying to sneak over to the Moon lake tribe.
“Sometimes, danger is also an opportunity.”
Mu Liang patted the white-haired girl on the shoulder, turned around and walked towards the table.
“Ugh~~” Li Yue sighed impotently, knowing that she had wasted her breath again.
This strange man was too stubborn.
“That…… is nothing to worry about.”
Mino looked at the weak expression of the white-haired girl, and said timidly: “We have to trust Mu Liang, he is very powerful.”
“That’s because he doesn’t know what he’s up against……”
Li Yue was halfway through when she looked at the blue eyes of the rabbit-eared girl with a trace of worry, and she could not continue.
She pursed her lips and changed her tone: “Well, Mu Liang is indeed very powerful, and it will be alright.”
“Hee hee…… I’m going to cook breakfast.” Mino smiled reassuringly and happily went to cook breakfast.
“Really…… when did I become so naive?”
Li Yue looked down at the crystal fish in the large bath tub and saw a blurred version of herself from the swirling water.
In just two days, she found that she was not like herself anymore.
The white-haired girl had always planned for the worst, which was why she was still alive and well.
“……” Mu Liang saw the white haired girl’s disheveled back and knew she was thinking too much.
He couldn’t help but complain in his heart, “What a worrywart.”
After all, he knew what he was capable of. Now that he hadn’t exposed it, it was only right for her to worry.
Mu Liang did not want to show off and wanted to keep some cards.
He opened his mouth and shouted, “Li Yue, come here, I have something to ask you.”
“What is it?” Li Yue returned to her senses and came to the table in confusion.
Mu Liang held up an animal skin and asked softly, “Do you recognize these words?”
Li Yue came forward and scanned the writing on top of the animal skin.
She raised her chin slightly and said, “Yes, isn’t that the word for beast?”
“It’s actually called hieroglyphics.” Mu Liang was surprised.
He did not expect oracle bone pictographs, which are also known as hieroglyphs in this world.
“It’s always been called a hieroglyph, anyone with a little common sense knows it.” Li Yue rolled her eyes and said.
She didn’t understand how this man became so stupid today.
There were some words that Mu Liang couldn’t explain.
He changed the topic and asked the contents of the animal skin,” What’s written on it?”
“Hmm~~ let me see.”
Li Yue took the animal skin and looked, her beautiful snow-white eyebrows were wrinkled together, and she recognized it with a little distress.
She muttered in a whisper, “Mrs. …… Oh, so it’s a sunflower.”
“…” Mu Liang immediately understood something when he saw the white-haired girl like this.
He narrowed his black eyes and said quietly, “Li Yue, are you also illiterate?”
“……” Li Yue’s body froze, and the animal skin was pinched and wrinkled.
She looked calm and said coldly, “Who said that? How can I be illiterate?”
“Oh? Really?” Mu Liang raised an eyebrow.
He smiled and pointed to the three words on the animal skin and asked faintly, “So do you recognize these three words?”
“Of, of course I know.”
The corners of Li Yue’s mouth twitched slightly, and she said in an uncertain tone: “The first word is… it’s the word white.”
“I also have an impression of the last two words, don’t rush me, let me think about it.”
“I didn’t even say a word.”
