That night, after Bai Rong fell sound asleep, Mu Chongyan quietly left the room. He walked to the door of Lu Kun’s room, and knocked twice.
Lu Kun put down the knife he was wiping, and walked over to open the door, “Mu……?”
Mu Chongyan made a silent gesture.
“Come in.” Lu Kun let go of the doorknob.
Mu Chongyan shook his head and pointed outside.
“Alright.” Lu Kun went to take a coat and quietly went out with Mu Chongyan.
“What’s the matter?” The two walked to the periphery of the yard, surrounded by darkness. Lu Kun looked at Mu Chongyan, completely devoid of any wild thoughts.
Those who said that the evening atmosphere was suitable for dating probably had a screw loose in their brain?!

“We’re not really going?” Lu Kun frowned slightly, “What do you mean?”
“I have something I’m hiding from Rongrong, so I was thinking of a plan.” Mu Chongyan paused, not adding any further explanation. “In short, I would like to trouble you to find Lu Ya for a while, ask him to take Rongrong and Kuku to the rumble beasts’ gathering area tomorrow, and tell him that they must come back a little later, probably… at around six or seven in the evening.”
Lu Kun thought for a while, and guessed that this was probably the surprise Mu Chongyan had wanted to give to Bai Rong, so he agreed.
“Thank you.” Mu Chongyan gratefully patted Lu Kun on the shoulder.
“No, there is nothing to be thankful for.” Lu Kun waved his hand, and walked back into the house, turning to a corridor to head to Lu Ya’s room.
Mu Chongyan glanced at the yard, turned around, closed the door and locked it, before returning to the house to rest.
Ten seconds later, a few meters away from the yard, two figures sneaked over, poking their heads and looking left and right for a while. Seeing that there was no one around, they continued to tiptoe forward until they reached the door of the courtyard of the house.
The tall black figure raised his head and glanced at the house number repeatedly, as though he was going to write it down. Then he fumbled for something out of his pocket, and took out a soybean-sized limestone-colored monitor, and cautiously squatted down.
“Won’t it be too conspicuous here…?” The shorter figure whispered.
“No, this monitor looks exactly like a pebble. It was specially given to me by the manager Man Da’er, and it’s impossible to spot.” The taller man touched his pocket again and took out a little tube that had a narrow top and a wide bottom the length of a finger. After twisting the tail of the tube, and squeezing out some transparent liquid, he spread a thin layer on the back of the monitor, and then carefully stuck the monitor on the corner of the doorstep.
After waiting for two minutes in the same place, reckoning that the glue was completely dry, the tall man stretched out his hand and poked the monitor vigorously. Seeing that the monitor remained motionless, he stood up with confidence and whispered, “Let’s go. Time to report this to Man Da’er.”
The two shadows sneakily crept back, gradually disappearing into the night.
The next day, several people got up early in the morning and went to the bathroom one by one to wash.
Because 20 kilometers away from the East Gate of Zone C was the wilderness, which was about the same distance from the wilderness in Zone D, the gang did not feel that time was particularly tight, taking a bath at the same pace as before.
Today’s breakfast was freshly fried omelets made by Lu Ya. There was also a plate of cut mutant beast meat, a large plate of cold leafy vegetables, and a pot of gnocchi soup. It was very hearty, making all of them feel very satisfied.
After Bai Rong had eaten, he was about to go back to his room to retrieve a weapon. His dark eyes were gleaming, and he emitted an excited air.
Although he currently lacked the strength to fight directly against the firetooth beast, just standing by the side with a weapon showed that he was very different from the past!
“Rongrong, I have something to tell you.” Mu Chongyan put down the bowl and spoke suddenly.
“What’s the matter?” Seeing Mu Chongyan look a little serious, Bai Rong was stunned and sat down again.
“This matter…” Mu Chongyan smiled seeing Bai Rong look like an obedient student listening to class and rubbed the top of Bai Rong’s hair. “It isn’t that serious nor is it a big deal. I just want to let you know something.”
“Oh…” Bai Rong nodded and raised his face slightly. “What’s the matter?”
“I’m going to explore the gathering place of red tiger beasts with Lu Kun.” Mu Chongyan glanced at Lu Kun. Lu Kun suddenly understood, and immediately said: “En, we’ve already discussed this matter, but you and Lu Ya aren’t strong enough to deal with them.”
“Red Tiger Beast? Bai Rong’s expression froze, “Isn’t that a fourth-level beast?!”
“It’s a fourth-level beast, but only of intermediate level, Lu Kun and I can handle it.”
“I’m going as well!” Bai Rong said quickly.
Fourth level intermediate was still two small levels higher than a firetooth beast so it must be very dangerous. It was impossible for him to let his wife go alone!
“It wouldn’t be good for you to go.” Mu Chongyan looked at Bai Rong, his gaze was gentle but disapproving, “You and Kuku will hunt the rumble beast together, okay?”
“No, I must go with you!” Bai Rong raised his voice, his brows furrowed tighter. How could he be at ease letting Mu Chongyan go to such a dangerous place? He had to protect his wife!
Catching his brother’s signal, Lu Ya, who was next to him, cleared his throat, and said, “Bai Rong, you don’t have to worry too much. Even if they’re discovered by the Red Tiger Beast, with both Brother Mu and my brother’s abilities, they would have no problems escaping…” Seeing his brother give him a meaningful look again, Lu Ya continued reluctantly, “But… if Brother Bai Rong insists on going, they’ll only be forced to slow down.”
His brother was so annoying. His idol was so powerful, he didn’t want to say such things at all!
“But I can detect the danger in advance, I can warn in advance.” Bai Rong looked up at Mu Chongyan, his black pupils only reflecting Mu Chongyan’s figure, “Please Chongyan…Can we go together?”
Mu Chongyan nearly blurted out “Okay”, but swallowed the word back with difficulty.
“No, I’ll be worried if you go, be good..and go hunt rumble beasts with Lu Ya and Kuku, ok?” Mu Chongyan said softly, “Don’t you believe in my abilities?”
In fact, he believed very much in his Little Sweet Cake. He believed that their group would be safer if Bai Rong goes. After all, Bai Rong’s perception was really keen, far surpassing some advanced monsters, and it was only continuing to grow.
But now he just wanted to find an excuse to send his Little Sweet Cake away…
“It’s not that I don’t believe in your abilities.” Bai Rong shook his head quickly, “But no matter how good you are, I want to accompany you. Otherwise, my heart won’t feel at ease.”
“It’ll be fine..” Mu Chongyan’s heart softened, and he held Bai Rong’s hand, “I promise to come back in one piece, and this’ll only happen today. Next time, I’ll take you to the gathering place of the red tiger beasts, okay?”
Seeing Mu Chongyan look at him with eyes that asked for trust, the words that had already reached Bai Rong’s mouth got stuck and he clenched his hands and pursed his lips.
“Please?” Mu Chongyan squeezed Bai Rong’s hand, “Trust me, I’ll be fine.”
Bai Rong looked at Mu Chongyan for a while. As if he had made some decision, he then said, “Then promise that from now on, no matter what gathering place of mutant beasts you’re going to, you’ll take me with you!”
“…Okay.” Mu Chongyan thought for a while, nodded and agreed, “Then you, Kuku and Lu Ya will go hunt rumble beasts together today, okay?”
“Okay!” Bai Rong clenched his fists. Today, he was going to hunt dozens of rumble beasts and prove his ability, letting his wife know how amazing he was!
Seeing that Bai Rong looked really fired up, Mu Chongyan glanced at Kuku and said, “Don’t stay out too late, come back once you’ve finished .”
“Yeah.” Kuku responded.
He certainly wouldn’t let his brother stay in the wilderness for too long, the radiation was so strong, it wasn’t good for the health at all.
The gang finally concluded the matter, and then packed up their things. They took their weapons, and rushed to the East Gate of Zone C together.
