Being a clean freak, Youyou frowned in disgust at the lake water. It was unknown whether the water was clean or not.
His twin explained, “It’s not smelly. It’s just that the water has quite a fishy smell; all unfiltered water smells like this.”
He then solemnly dipped his finger into the water and brought it to his nose. His brows locked tightly and his face turned awful when he gave it a sniff.
How could he tolerate such poor quality of water when he himself usually liked cleanliness so much that he had not drunk tap water before?
Lisa approached the lake and reached her hand into it to feel the water temperature.
The lake water was icy cold, but when compared to the chilly mountainous air, it felt surprisingly warm.
Her hands cupped a scoop of water. The instant she gulped a mouthful of it, its fishy taste spread in her mouth, making it hard to swallow.
She forced herself to swallow it with a gulp and nearly vomited from the momentarily nauseating feeling in her stomach.
Her brows furrowed as she smacked her lips to force herself in drinking another mouthful.
It was very quiet in the mountain; hence, the sound of her drinking caught Youyou’s attention. The sight of her swallowing several mouthfuls of the lake water made him feel sick.
Mu Yichen also scooped the water to drink a few mouthfuls. He, too, nearly vomited when the strong taste spread in his mouth.
It tasted awful!
The fishy taste was so overpowering that he nearly vomited.
From their furrowed brows, he presumed that this water must be awful, so he decided to give up on drinking it.
Without caring about the twins, the girl pried her outer clothes off.
The blood, which had already dried up, made her clothes stuck tightly to her skin so she was forced to separate it carefully. The girl then washed off the blood on her face and chest.
A bone-chilling sensation seized her when the icy water from the lake touched her skin. It felt as if her blood had frozen.
She could not help sucking in a mouthful of cold air. She then speeded her actions.
The older twin could not believe his eyes when he saw her standing calmly in front of him with her clothes half-removed.
From an early age, he had been taught that men and women were anatomically different. Hence, he shifted his gaze awkwardly with a frown. His face was strangely red.
By the time the girl was done cleaning herself and looked up, she realized that Youyou had already moved far away.
He did not force himself to drink the lake water despite his parched throat. Even though the water was not really dirty, it was hard to ingest. There was no way he would even lick that water despite his thirst.
Lisa left to hunt for food when he decided to take a break mid-way. She caught two snakes, which she skillfully separated the flesh from the intestines and then carefully washed several times.
When she was gathering firewood to make a bonfire for cooking and warmth, she saw the younger boy trying to start a fire.
She did not know if he was taught wrongly or he was inexperienced with surviving in the wild, but she saw him gathering a bunch of dried leaves and sticks then clumsily rubbing a twig to start a fire to no avail.
The boy looked down gloomily at that pile of dried leaves.
Could he start a fire this way?
His brother held back his laughter as he watched him from behind.
The girl gathered plenty of dried firewood and a huge pile of dried leaves. Her movements on the grass caught Mu Yichen’s attention. Seated on the ground, she pulled out a flint and a dagger, then hit the flint with blade of the dagger. The dried leaves sizzled with smoke when the sparks landed on them.
