Ancient Eden - Chapter 88
Li Mang had pulled her out of a trap he had dug with his companions a long time ago. He had been hunting in the vicinity at the time and, remembering that he hadn’t checked the trap for a long time, he went to see if there was any prey who had fallen in it by chance.
He didn’t expect to get a woman.
Back then, she was lying on the ground and when she looked up, she looked at him with extremely surprised eyes. In fact, his surprise at that time was probably no less than hers. She was so different from the women he was used to see, her hair, the color of her skin, the look in her eyes, and the strange coverings wrapped around her body. Bach then, his first impulse was to tear apart the coverings around her upper body to see whether or not she had two breasts like other women. Otherwise, why would she cover them up like that ? But he held back. It wasn’t until the next night that he actually did it.
He felt slightly relieved when her body was revealed. She was no different than any other woman. But …… something was indeed different. As he ran his hands over her chest, he felt an unusual smoothness and saw a beautiful shape unlike anything he had ever seen before. He felt he liked it very much.
Thinking about it now, he regretted having been so rough. She must have been terrified at the time, but she looked at him with a calm demeanor and said words he didn’t understand. He didn’t think about it much at the time, but now that he knew her, with the eccentric temperament that she had, she was definitely cursing at him.
Cursing at him was fine. He didn’t care at all if she cursed at him. To the point where, as long as she was happy, he would happily let her kick him and bite him a few times.
Later on, after interacting with her for a few days, whenever he saw her glaring at him, half pouting, looking like she was angry but also like she was acting coquettishly, he started to feel his heart soften from the very bottom, becoming so soft that he had no strength to resist her. He felt comfortable in his entire body even more than when he was jumping into a deep stream to swim during a scorching day. It was a full-body experience, and he loved it, even going so far as to make her angry on purpose sometimes just to see her like that.
He thought for a few days about it, back then when he brought her back to the tribe, and offered her to Da Wu in accordance with the rules of the tribe, why did he feel somewhat ill at ease, even taking the excuse to strike a conversation with Da Wu to accompany him back to his hut, and then later why did he quietly wander around the night, in low spirits, not feeling like leaving?
Now he knew, that was because of the temptation he felt from her. This kind of temptation, from the first few days he was with her, was already slowly taking its roots into his body, and from that point on, it could never be cut off.
It was an all-consuming feeling for him. He was addicted to the feelings she gave him, and gradually became unable to extricate himself from those feelings.
He felt that she was a mysterious woman from the start, whether it was the various oddities he found in the bag she was carrying, or the feelings she made him feel.
It was her knife that he had just used to slit that man’s throat. He had never dreamed that such a tool would exist in this world, cold, sharp, solid and handy. Using it to slit the throat of a prey was as easy as it could get.
He didn’t know where she came from. Sometimes he suspected that she was a gift sent from a god in heaven.
When she smiled and revealed her white teeth, her eyes curved into the crescent moon in the sky, and he would look at her in daze, so much so that he felt ashamed of himself; when she laid in his arms in a good mood, she would hum in a low voice a tune he could never imagine, and though he did not know what she was singing, he found it beautiful and moving, and wished that she would continue singing it.
She could make all kinds of strange knots, and she could teach the children of the tribe many games, and she could think of so many clever ways to make tools to use for the harvest, and lately he had even learned that she could do calculations better than any of the people in the tribe, and that even the wise Da Wu of the tribe asked her for advice.
