Silly Spring Attack - Chapter 20
Coming out of Tan Tu’s territory, Su Ce was pulled by two females bouncing away. The softer and smaller hands in his palms would gave people a strange warm feeling.
Tan Tu followed closely behind them. He saw his sweetheart’s straight back and the actions of answering the twins’ from time to time. He felt his carefulness that was hard to detect but did exist. How could he have a very happy feeling.
If they have children in the future, they would also feel happier. He thought so.
Ah right! Ah Ce said he couldn’t have children. Well, he can go and raise one of the loveliest back. He believes that Ah Ce, who can make the twins like him, will certainly make their adopted son liked him.
Ai Guo looked up and asked, “Brother Ah Ce, what do you want to see first?”
Su Ce thought for a while, “I saw a lot before…” He paused, “…well, many females are dealing with something like food. Can you introduce me first?”
Ai Guo nodded, “Okay!” He pulled him and turned in the other direction, “Brother Ah Ce said “food”, right? There are seeds in the tribe that each female has allocated land. It’s usually used to plant.”
Ai Mi also said, “We…also…”
Ai Guo suddenly turned around, “Hey, Tan Tu!”
Tan Tu stepped forward by two steps. He had been a few steps behind in order not to disturb the whispering between the females, “Why? Is Ah Ce looking for me?”
Ai Guo rolled his eyes, “Can’t I find you?”
Tan Tu was a little disappointed. He looked at Su Ce and said, “…Okay.”
Ai Guo said grumpily, “Well, actually it had something to do with Brother Ah Ce!” Seeing Tan Tu’s spirit lifted, he shook his head and sighed, “You males are always too careless. So I ask you, Brother Ah Ce has been recognized by the Patriarch and is already a member of the tribe. Did you help him get the land?”
Tan Tu paused.
From yesterday to today, he just wanted to cultivate a good relationship with Ah Ce and actually forgot to get the land for Ah Ce. Ah, what to do!
He anxiously rushed in front of Su Ce, “Ah Ce, I’m sorry, I’m sorry…”
Now that he has been Su Ce’s guide, all of this should be his responsibility. Land is an important tool and one of the most precious materials for females, but he forgot this.
What would happen if Ah Ce didn’t forgive him… Would it make Ah Ce feel that the tribe didn’t welcome him, would he run away in anger?
Tan Tu kept scratching his hair and wanted to give himself a good beating.
Su Ce thought about it, and also probably understand.
However, he didn’t think this was a problem. If females were so rare and precious, even if Tan Tu forgot, others would tell him.
What’s more, it’s impossible for Tan Tu to have any bad heart. He also doesn’t want to see Tan Tu always being so careful.
Tan Tu has always been nice to him, he knows.
So Su Ce shook his head, “It doesn’t matter, don’t worry.”
Tan Tu’s eyes lit up.
Ai Guo sighed in his heart, Tan Tu is really lucky. You know, although most females are not bad-hearted, they still want to do something about these rough and rash males. Who isn’t like Brother Ah Ce that’s so gentle.
…Su Ce, who didn’t know he was “gentle”, had a strange look at Ai Guo. He had to treat as if he hadn’t seen it.
Ai Mi tugged at Su Ce’s clothes, his little fingers pointed in one direction, “It’s…there.”
Ai Guo also turned his head, “Yeah, here we are.”
Su Ce looked at it. It seemed to be the northern part of the tribe. There was a large field, divided into many pieces by a fencemade of rope and wooden sticks, but each piece was about an acre or two. Taken together, there must be a few hundred acres of land.
On one side is a very high mountain, which is also relatively steep. A beast basically cannot get down from there. Because the other side leads to the tribe, many male houses can be seen within a short distance. It’s also very difficult for the enemies to attack here.
Su Ce glanced over. According to his rough estimation of the land area, there are about 2,000 people in this tribe. Females accounted for a quarter of them, about five or six hundred, and the rest are males. Strictly speaking, this is a fairly large tribe.
Thinking of this, Su Ce bowed his head to asked, “Ai Guo, how many people are there in our tribe?”
Ai Guo bit his finger and thought, “Maybe…there are two thousand adults…the cubs don’t know. Recently, several more females have given birth.”
It was bigger than he expected, but not too much. Su Ce nodded and looked up at the fields again.
The climate here is a bit dry, but not that hot. He doesn’t know what kind of crops are suitable for planting… He hasn’t planted any land. It seems there’s still a lot to learn in the future.
Because it’s the first time, that meal has been cooked for a long time. It’s about noon now. The females went back to cook and looked at the emptiness of the field.
Ai Guo and Ai Mi took Su Ce to the middle left of the field. Ai Guo pointed at one of them and said, “This one is mine.”
Ai Mi clicked on the next block, “That one…is mine.”
There are a lot of crops on the both plots. The one that belongs to Ai Guo has some short root plants in it, with green leaves patched together. While Ai Mi’s is much higher, it looks similar to the broomcorn plants that Su Ce has seen before.
If you look at other fields, most of them are the same.
Su Ce asked, “What are these all called?”
Ai Guo said, “This is Bai Bu.”
Ai Mi, “This is…broomcorn grains.”
Su Ce walked for a while. There were also some magenta or turquoise climbing plants with thick leaves or delicate vines, a bit like some unknown wild vegetables on Earth. In retrospect, it seemed some of them were vegetables that Tan Tu had brought in these past two days.
Ai Guo said to him while pointing out, “This is the ground fern, which eats stems and leaves. That one is called dragon root, which eats only root whiskers. And, that, Luo Luo grass, also eats stems and leaves…”
Su Ce secretly wrote it all down then looked back at the tall Orc, “Tan Tu, what do you like to eat?”
Tan Tu smiled widely, “I like to eat whatever Ah Ce likes!”
Su Ce nodded. That isn’t choosing…
Ai Guo said, “Luo Luo grass is the tenderest and sweetest. It can be eaten raw. It’s usually pulled around the waist when playing games.”
…the tenderest? Su Ce’s eyes moved.
At this time, females came one after another. Ai Guo saw one, waved his hands twice, and shouted, “Mo La! Mo La!”
“Ah!” He was answered by a tall, thin, and a beautiful female with long brown hair, covering his waist, and a healthy complexion. He was followed by several males, all looking at him with chasing eyes, “Ai Guo, you lazy little fellow, why are you interested in coming here?”
Ai Guo pursed his lips, “What are you saying, I also have the land to plant…”
The female named Mo La laughed wantonly. He had long hands and feet, when he walked over, his body rhythm seemed to be dancing lightly.
He walked up to several people, touched Ai Mi’s face gently, and nudged Ai Guo’s face, before looking at Su Ce saying, “This one has never seen before. Ai Guo, is it your friend?” Of course he also saw Tan Tu behind Su Ce, but he just glanced over and didn’t stay much.
Ai Guo pulled Mo La’s hand down and led over Su Ce saying, “This is Brother Ah Ce, the female Tan Tu brought back from outside!” He wrinkled his nose, “Tan Tu is pursuing him.”
Mo La looked at Su Ce up and down for a while, then nodded and smiled, “Good looking.” He stretched out his hand and shook into a fist, “Hello, my name is Mo La.”
Su Ce hesitated. Not sure whether this was a courtesy, but he had to learn to do it. Indeed, Mo La knocked his fist against his, so he also knocked back, “Hello, I’m Su Ce.”
Judging from other people’s expressions, he didn’t seem to have done anything wrong.
He didn’t do anything wrong. On Kanda, this is how females express friendship. However, if males and females do the same, it will be regarded as a kind of harassment. If males and males do the same, it’s equivalent to courtship between the same sex. The correct way to express friendship between males is to hit their chest with their fists. While there’s no special declaration of greeting between males and females.
Mo La looked at the new female and felt the other side’s calm expression seemed to hide a little embarrassment. He couldn’t help but feel interested. He felt even more interested when he saw the more famous and powerful but dull male in that tribe, who always looked at the female so intently.
Just as he was about to say something, he saw Ai Guo gave him a look.
Mo La was amused to see Ai Guo’s gaze swept between Tan Tu and Su Ce.
Perhaps because of Tan Tu’s nature, although the strongest males in the tribe will take turns protecting the precious twins, Ai Guo is best for Tan Tu—although he sometimes teased him, he will help out when he really likes a female.
No. This isn’t to say that he is holding Tan Tu’s own heart, but also to let himself test it out…well, for Tan Tu’s sake, he can also draw the conclusion that he isn’t easily tempted.
So Mo La coughed softly, “Can I call you Ah Ce?” After receiving a positive answer, she continued, “Since everyone is in a tribe, they are also friends. When you and Tan Tu get married, don’t forget to invite me.”
Su Ce didn’t expect that this was the case when the other party spoke.
……Is this the only problem that females in this tribe are most concerned about when they see people? He thought of La Ya who solds fabrics, it seemed the same.
He should have said it was a misunderstanding, but somehow he turned his head and saw Tan Tu with a tense expression on his face.
He suddenly couldn’t say anything.
