Silly Spring Attack - Chapter 24
What was used in cleaning was in a large wooden bucket, similar to where Su Ce bathed last time. The water inside steamed. When looking down, he found the water turned out to be light green. It’s probably for dissolving the drug stains on his body.
Ka Mai’s strength wasn’t strong enough, but Tan Tu took him in. Because he was worried about him all the time, although Su Ce isn’t wearing any clothes now, Tan Tu did not have any such things like ‘nosebleed’ and ‘drooling’.
Su Ce’s strength gradually recovered. He picked up the brush Ka Mai gave him and slowly scraped off the outer layer of medicine mud on his body. When the skin was almost cleaned, he began to scrub it with his hands, he did not dare challenge the rashness of the brush, so as not only to wash away the drug stains but also to scrape off a layer of his skin.
Soon after, Tan Tu had already rushed home in the process and brought a new set of clothes, the old one had been wet with sweat, which obviously isn’t suitable for his newly recovered patient.
When Tan Tu was about to take Su Ce out, he was driven out by Ka Mai. This is not an ‘extraordinary period’, males have to stay away from females!
Ka Mai smiled at Su Ce and said, “It’s almost okay. I’ll give you some more herbs. If you feel uncomfortable, you can use them directly.” He looked out and added, “Just now, though you didn’t know, Tan Tu watched the whole process. He knows what needs to be done.”
Since Su Ce decided to accept Tan Tu, he didn’t feel as embarrassed as when he was teased before, he nodded, “Thank you. If there’ll any incident again, I’ll let Tan Tu do it.”
This tone is obviously different from before. Ka Mai is a very clever female, he sees Tan Tu as the pursuer’s attitude, now that Su Ce has said so, he understood. He smiled again, “Tan Tu is very good.”
Su Ce was already very fond of Ka Mai, he smiled slightly, “I know.”
After going out, Tan Tu was afraid Su Ce isn’t yet good. He wanted to carry him back but gave up after Su Ce shook his head. However, Su Ce asked him to help himself and immediately made the single-celled male happy.
By this time, it was already dark. There was no light on the road except the moonlight. Tan Tu carefully held Su Ce along, holding his back with the other hand for fear of any accident.
The atmosphere was a bit too calm so Su Ce asked, “By the way, Tan Tu, witch doctor…what is it?”
When it comes to ‘witch doctor’, Tan Tu’s attitude is somewhat solemn, “Witch doctors are the most respectable people in the tribe.”
Turned out that in any tribe on this continent, it’s too dangerous to fight with all kinds of wild animals in the nature. From then on, a kind of person who specializes in treatment of Orcs was born, namely ‘witch doctor’.
It’s not easy for the witch doctors to hold a position. Males are careless by nature. Although they deliberately identify simple herbs, they cannot do so in more subtle terms. Therefore, almost all witch doctors are females.
However, to become a real witch doctor, there are too many things to learn. They must be very familiar with the habits of each herb, to know its smell, taste and efficacy, and be able to match them with each other. At the same time, they must also understand the characteristics of various animals on the continent, including which are toxic and whether the toxicity is strong or not, and formulate antidotes against these toxicity. In addition, they have to deliver the females to welcome the arrival of newborns. They must be familiar with all edible plants on the continent, understand their advantages and disadvantages to Orcs. Bear the responsibility of discovering new food. They also need to know the astronomical phenomena and the its various laws represented.
It can be said that if you succeed in becoming a witch doctor, then if you are on Earth, every witch doctor is undoubtedly a botanist, zoologist, Chinese medicine scientist…and even astronomy is proficient. Moreover, if this is only a big difficulty in learning, then there’s another one that is hard for females to accept—
No witch doctor can have children.
In the process of learning, a witch doctor loses her fertility because he tasted all kinds of herbs, and his hair will turned white. Because they are responsible for the health of the whole tribe, they are often busy, so they can’t form a family with an ambition—because they can’t maintain the family wholeheartedly.
In other words, witch doctors belong to the whole tribe, but they are lonely.
There are no more than three witch doctors in the tribe, Ka Mai being the best one.
In any case, Su Ce admired those who devoted themselves to the whole tribe. He thought about the soft female and sighed.
It’s still too lonely.
The two walk towards home side by side. They didn’t go far before they saw an oncoming procession of more than ten people.
Tan Tu hurriedly took Su Ce to the side of the road and let him lean against the wall. He crossed his arms, clenched his hands into fists, hit the shoulder sockets on both sides, and bent down deeply.
Su Ce knew what the etiquette was and did the same thing. While he was bending, he saw everyone passing by had done the same.
It didn’t take long for these people to pass, Tan Tu straightened up, and took Su Ce back into his arms again.
Su Ce allowed him to mingle and glanced back at those people in doubt—several of them carried a huge wooden board and bulged up.
Tan Tu took him and explained, “They are going to the Forbidden Grounds.”
Su Ce looked up, “Forbidden Grounds?”
Tan Tu nodded, “It’s the place where we Orcs are buried.”
The Forbidden Grounds is behind the tribe, and is the only place where the Orcs are buried.
When an Orc die, their bodies will be lifted up by their loved ones with wooden boards, covered with beautiful dead grass, and sent to the Forbidden Ground, allowing them to return to the embrace of the Earth.
Tan Tu’s etiquette expressed condolences for the dead, while the return ceremony of the dead Orc’s loved ones represents gratitude and common memory. This a very heavy emotion.
After listening to Tan Tu, Su Ce felt a heavy atmosphere for the first time. He asked, “Tan Tu, are you sad?”
Tan Tu shook his head and smiled, “No… Death is just the beginning. I only need to be with the most important person while I’m still alive, then I won’t regret when I leave. Every male thinks so.”
Su Ce was silent. He looked up and saw they were already ahead of Tan Tu’s house.
Su Ce held the edge of the wooden ladder and walked up to the second floor under Tan Tu’s nervous watch. The hide(or animal skin) had already been replaced. He reached out to touch it and found it was much softer than the previous one.
Maybe it won’t be so uncomfortable to sleep, he thought.
Not long after, Tan Tu jumped up. He brought a whole night of hot soup to let Su Ce warm his stomach.
Su Ce looked at him, “Have a drink, too.” After taking care of him these days, Tan Tu should be more tired than he is.
Tan Tu spiritedly handed over the wooden bowl, “Su Ce drink it. I’ll just go down and chew two pieces of meat later!”
Su Ce didn’t say anything more and reached out for the bowl.
As soon as it got into his hand, he felt something’s not right.
Su Ce, “…Tan Tu, did you make this bowl again?” Although it looks the same size, it seems much lighter.
Tan Tu hastily said, “No, it’s the same one.” Thinking about it, he added, “Ah Ce, do you want a new one? I can make one for you now.”
Tan Tu is too nervous…
Su Ce shook his head, “…No, I just said it casually. This is fine.”
Is it an illusion?
Tan Tu has no habit of asking questions. He propped up his chin and watched Su Ce drink soup, smiling contentedly.
After Su Ce finished, he saw Tan Tu’s eyes. It was full of himself.
Su Ce slowly put down the bowl and stopped Tan Tu, who was about to take it for washing.
Tan Tu wondered and looked at him sideways.
“What’s the matter, Ah Ce?”
Su Ce looked down, “Tan Tu, do you remember what I said to you?”
Tan Tu nodded, “Ah Ce said a lot.”
“I said that in the future…”
“Oh! I remember! Everyday I have to wash the dishes and take a bath. Ah Ce will do the cooking, I’ll just need to help out occasionally.”
Su Ce looked at Tan Tu seriously, “You have done a good job these days. Can you stick to it in the future?”
Tan Tu was infected by the atmosphere and became serious, “Of course! I won’t let Ah Ce down.”
Su Ce stopped.
Tan Tu looked at him, a little nervous, because his Ah Ce seemed a little wordless.
The next moment, Su Ce spoke out, “Go and get the land tomorrow.”
“Later…you hunt, I’ll farm and cook.”
“When I need to pick something, let’s go to the mountain together.”
“So…” Su Ce looked up.
Tan Tu looked at him, “So?”
Su Ce’s eyes softened, “So, let’s get married.”
