Chapter 1237: Wolves’ Encounter
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
At dawn, the sun was seen rising from the east.
The air in the rainforest was dense with the morning dew, so wet chills assailed their bodies constantly. Youyou could feel his joints getting cold and stiff.
On these mountains, the howling of wild beasts was constant.
With one hand holding up a fire torch, Mu Yichen’s other hand gripped a dagger to cut off the obstructions in their path.
Lisa, who was guarding the rear, would occasionally look around.
The younger twin muttered, “How much longer before we can leave this place?”
“Shouldn’t be too far away!”
As his energy seeped out gradually, he was near collapsing point.
He had not rested for two consecutive days and nights. Adding that he had not eaten or drunk the last day, the long and arduous journey made him famished and cold.
His condition deteriorated down to the bottom.
His brother tried to comfort him. “Soon, we’ll be out of this place!”
The younger one suddenly stopped in his tracks with his breathing hastening.
The girl walked up to him and took him on her back without a second word.
The boy might be stubborn and unwilling to be carried by her, but he had truly fully exhausted himself this time and no longer had any strength to resist. Without a struggle, he let her carry him on her back!
“Thank you.” He told her wryly in a hushed tone.
She merely replied, expressionless, “You are my master.”
Her meaning was clear. Protecting him was her responsibility and what she was engaged to do.
The boy could only sip his lips in response. This girl was really single-minded.
She was like a cool, steel machine that meticulously performed the program it was set with tirelessly.
Doesn’t she feel tired?
The trio continued their trek across the jungle.
Even though she was carrying the boy, the girl did not feel tired.
Trained to withstand tough load, where she was made to wear combat uniform with pieces of lead, that weighted much heavier than the twins combined.
As for Little Yichen, he began to slow down due to his injury.
At this time, a slight movement was heard from the jungle bushes ahead of them, and it startled him.
He was about to approach to look closer when Lisa suddenly stopped him. With a ‘shh’, she signaled him not to move.
In the stillness and peering from within the dark forest, two pairs of sharp, yellowish eyes could be seen glistening.
Soon after, two creatures, resembling wolves or dogs, slowly emerged from the fauna; their ferocious eyes glinted hungrily at them.
“What are these?!” The older twin stifled.
The girl narrowed her eyes and sized up the creatures before replying all of a sudden, “Wolves!”
The boy was taken aback; they appeared to have run smack into the worst-possible situation!
His brother furrowed his brows as well when he studied the animals. “No. These are more ferocious than wolves.”
He had seen this breed in the zoology encyclopedia before. They were definitely not wolves.
The girl stumbled a step backward with a frown when she heard that.
Youyou added solemnly behind her. “These are two jackals!”
There was a Chinese idiom comparing jackal to a tiger and a leopard. From here, one could deduce how fierce these creatures were!
They usually hunted in pairs, which was rare in the animal kingdom.
In reality, many often mistook jackals for wolves, though there were differences; jackals were much smaller than wolves.
This Canis was typical seen in mountainous terrain and inhabited grasslands.
