Tales Of The World Devouring Serpent - Chapter 12
Watching as the dark shadow was fleeing outside, Fang Yun got a bit surprised, but he quickly lost interest, it should be a type of rodent, or some small animal, in short, it is unlikely to pose a threat to himself.
He is going to spend the night in this tree hole. If the rain stops tomorrow, he will go outside to search for a more suitable nest. If he finds it, he will return this tree hole to its original owner.
But if the weather doesn’t improve tomorrow, he will continue to stay here.
After thinking for a while, Fang Yun stopped thinking about that, calmed down and prepared to sleep.
He felt that this tree hole was very comfortable to lie down in. It seemed to have a fluffy mattress underneath. It is very soft and warm. As a cold-blooded animal that needs to raise his body temperature through basking in the sun, Fang Yun felt that such a resting place was simply too comfortable.
As he is exhausted from that crazy escape not long ago, he soon fell asleep.
On the early morning of the next day, Fang Yun was woken up by the faint sunlight passing through the tree hole.
Just as he wanted to observe the layout of this tree hole, his attention was drawn by sudden a sharp scream.
Fang Yun looked over to the hole entrance. He saw that outside of the tree hole. There was a small furry animal constantly waving its small hands and screaming at him.
Seeing the little thing that is yelling at him, Fang Yun got a bit surprised.
It’s a squirrel.
“Target locked: long-tail squirrel. Species: mammal. Family: rodent, can provide 20 bio-energy point.”
When he heard the sound of the system in his mind, Fang Yun was slightly surprised. The bio-energy that this squirrel could provide him is actually quite a lot, even more than the vole that he had eaten last night.
But when he looked at the squirrel size, he immediately understood why. The squirrel is about twenty centimeters tall, much bigger than yesterdays vole.
It’s just that he doesn’t have the intent to prey on this squirrel. Squirrels were very agile and capturing them is not an easy task.
And it’s only because he has seized the other side nest, that he can sleep well last night.
”Well, let’s be a good snake just for once.” thought Fang Yun.
So after Fang Yun glanced at the squirrel a few times, he stopped looking at him and then looked around inside the tree hole.
After a few glances, he couldn’t stop his amazement.
Because in this tree hole, there is actually a lot of furs spread on the ground, rabbit fur, some furry animal wool…
”It’s a very particular squirrel.”
Fang Yun sighed in amazement, this squirrel is really smart, knowing how to dress up his own nest.
”No wonder I felt warm and comfortable while sleeping here last night.”
On the other side inside the tree hole, there is a lot of tree seeds like pine cones and chestnuts stacked together. This squirrel probably has the habit of storing food. This pile of pine cones and chestnuts should be the stock of the squirrel.
Regaining his gaze, Fang Yun crawled out of the tree hole, ready to investigate the situation in this area.
The squirrel at the entrance of the cave, seeing that Fang Yun is crawling over, thinking that he is coming to kill himself, immediately ran, disappearing in the blink of an eye.
Fang Yun didn’t bother him, climbing out of the hole, then looking around, scanning the surrounding scenery for possible preys or threats.
The rain hasn’t stopped, but it’s a lot smaller and can be considered at most a drizzle, enabling him to see everything around him.
At this time, he also discovered that the big tree he is currently in is a huge pine tree with a diameter much bigger than the length of his body, he estimates that it should be more than two meters.
Its canopy is also very large, covering a distance of more than ten meters around, it’s leaves are dark green, and does have a lot of pines, showing the vitality of this pine tree.
Additionally, the area where he is currently in is extremely lush, housing a lot of lush trees and bushes, there are very few empty spaces around.
This grove is almost covered with lush trees. Most of them being eucalyptus and pine trees.
However, on his right side about a hundred meters away from this pine tree is a meadow, where only a few shrubs exist.
The terrain on that grassland is very flat, like a slope sinking, on the other end is a steep cliff with bare gray rocks.
Only on the dark side of some raised stones, some green moss grows.
A sharp cry broke Fang Yun’s thoughts. He looked over to his right side. seeing that on a branch on another tree. The previous squirrel was standing there and yelling at himself.
Seeing Fang Yun looking at him, the squirrel screamed even louder.
Fang Yun couldn’t help getting annoyed at the guy who interrupted his thoughts, so he swayed his head from side to side, hissing and then making an attacking gesture.
The squirrel on the branch was immediately scared to jump, and which he couldn’t stand still, falling straight toward the ground.
The squirrel fell to the ground while screaming, but the soft grass on the ground, plus the thick fur on him, protected him from injury.
Watching this scene the whole time, Fang Yun on the trunk couldn’t help but smile.
”Oh, what a silly squirrel.”
After it was quiet once again, Fang Yun began to think about his next survival problem. It is still raining, which mean that he can’t find a place suitable for his own residence for now.
Without mentioning that he still doesn’t know whether this area is suitable for his own survival or not.
For a nest to be suitable for his survival, there are two important points to consider.
The first point is that the nest must be concealed from predators, furthermore, the size should be moderate, not too small, nor too big, to prevent natural enemies from drilling into the nest to attack himself.
Another point is that the nearby prey should be sufficient for his growth.
He looked up at the gloomy sky, seeing that the rain has no tendency to stop, all he could do is to return to the tree hole.
At the moment, the weather in the forest is quite cold, which made him particularly uncomfortable, all he could do is snuggle between the pile of rabbit fur and the furry wool.
As for finding a nest to live in, Or wait until the weather becomes fine before going to search for it.
But what he didn’t expect was that the heavy rain actually went on for a whole seven day.
During those seven days, on which he did not go out to hunt, but on a certain afternoon, he saw a bird whose wings were drenched with rain, lying on the ground not far from the pine tree.
That little bird gave him 10 bio-energy point.
It is worth mentioning that when he returned to the tree hole after swallowing the little bird, he found a shadow hurriedly running out of the tree hole, which was the squirrel whose nest had been seized by him.
The squirrel didn’t leave this whole time. At night, Fang Yun didn’t know where it went. It’s estimated that he stayed on some branch and rested.
In the daytime, it either stands in front of the tree hole and looks at himself with resentment or when he return to the tree hole, He can see it running out of the hole when he comes back.
Fang Yun thought that the silly guy was ready to rest in the nest, but then he saw the squirrel running with a chestnut in his mouth.
It turned out that the squirrel is risking his life to return to the nest to get food.
Since then, Fang Yun has been deliberately going out every day for a while, leaving the squirrel with the time to enter the tree hole to retrieve food.
In seven days, just eating a small bird made Fang Yun’s a little annoyed.
But fortunately, after seven days, the weather has finally cleared.
