Chapter 7: The Hungry Old Wolf
Looking at the System, in the Skill Column, there was now an extra “Wolf God’s Golden Body”.
The joyful me, nodded my head and wagged my tail.
TL Note: Idiom for being pleased with oneself.
Obtaining this BUG-like skill, my future wasn’t just a dream anymore!
I was already fantasizing within my heart about entering the human world and starting a harem.
Yao Yao, that girl who doesn’t respect herself at all. He should confine her for one million years.
But it then occurred to me. After I got the skill, the changes to my body didn’t seem too big at all!
Why wasn’t there any impurities being discharged from my body? Why didn’t I become keen and alert? Why does my body feel just as fragile and weak as it was before, and why do I not have the feeling that I can one punch Xiao Bai to death now?
TL Note: Xiao Bai = Pretty boy, idiot, fool, also a typical dog name….
What’s going on with this thing?
Perhaps the skill hasn’t been started up yet?
After searching for a while, I poked the “Wolf God’s Golden Body” and the System immediately switched screens and brought out a great deal of introductory information.
“Wolf God’s Golden Body: The result of Doctor Hui Tai Lang’s work of blood, sweat and tears. It is an external Divine Art to refine one’s body. Theoretically, this Divine Art can allow the body to achieve immunity from all harm and improve one’s recovery ability receiving unceasing strikes to one’s body. It has a total of ten stages.
- When the practice of this Divine Art reaches its culmination, he will theoretically become invincible, it’s just that no one has ever attempted it before.
- This practice is a form of self-abuse. if there is no pain, there will be no progress. Of course, when the damage that the practitioner had suffered has passed the body’s ability to endure, it is still possible to die.
- This godly cultivation can only be practiced by the beings that possessed the blood of the wolf race. If any other race tries cultivated in it, I, the doctor, will not be shouldered with any lawful or moral responsibility.”
At the bottom, there was an “Activate” this one word. My claw went and pat against it.
Very quickly, a large amount of information spilled out in an unending stream into my small head. And I nearly ended up fainting.
Only after enduring that suffering did I discover that a red line had appeared on the System with a label within it: Zeroth Stage of Experience: 0%.
How can it be like this?
I almost couldn’t believe my own eyes.
Don’t all the web novels say, when you do missions and stuff and get a skill, it is directly installed and successful?
How come when I finally get to this point, it is necessary for me to gain experience as well?
I had the sudden urge to bite all of the web authors to death. You guys have obviously never transmigrated before, so don’t write random fictional plots!
In the end why weren’t web authors commonly recognized by the masses?
It’s because they wrote without having any basis to their story and carried no sense of responsibility with their writing, not even considering the subtle influence their work would have on their readership, allowing the readers be subtly led astray.
If they had tried it before they had start writing, then those who ended up writing about being transmigrated from being hit by a car should be hit by a car; those who write about transmigration after jumping into water, would have went and drowned themselves; those who wrote about transmigration from being electrocuted, would have went and tried to shock themselves with high voltage and after the following explosive feeling…… It would certainly have made the whole world hold online writers to a higher esteem, becoming the world’s model worker was also not an impossible task!
Of course, I also have the potential to become a glorious and devoted martyr to communism.
I’m currently thinking: Turning off the System Fairy, would it be right or wrong of me?
But asking me to release Yao Yao, that is just not happening. That sentence she had left behind as she disappeared, even thinking about it now ends up horrifying people.
Finding a stone, my small claws softly pat it down and after turning my head to look at the experience value. There wasn’t the slightest bit of movement to it.
Using a bit more force, the experience value still didn’t have any movement on it.
Perhaps I was being a bit too soft?
I need to grit my teeth and bear the pain. For the happiness and livelihood of tomorrow, I’ll stake it all!
My small claws resolutely patted against the rock, paining me to the point that I almost shedded some tears. But since I didn’t hear any “ka-ca” sounds, my bones probably hadn’t broken.
With my lame leg, I lay on the floor and took a look at my experience value: 0.01%.
This simply wasn’t meant for humans to practice!
I can only state it like this.
Which mental case would had the spare time to go and do such self-harm?
I’m not a mental case.
But how could I afford to not practice this Divine skill?
The surroundings were extremely quiet. You could hear the distant white wolves occasionally howling.
The night does not affect a wolf’s vision. A few white wolves were lightly walking around. There were hunting activities going on even during the night. The wolves that were left behind were all pretty much the elderly and the sick wolves.
Wolves, really lived freely and without suffering restraints.
But if you didn’t have strength, then you definitely wouldn’t live a long. The Wolf Race had no specific charity to them. Those without the strength to fight, practically existed right on the edge of death.
I indeed admired the wolves for their freedom. But their freedom was also based on their power.
At the same time, I really want to enter the human part of this world and take a look at it. But without strength, I wouldn’t even need to try thinking about that. The type of morality and manner of conduct the humans had, I was all too clear about it.
I’m afraid that just as I would get close to a city, my tendons would already have been plucked and my pelt stripped!
As if I’ll believe that all the people of this world are part of the Animal Protection Organization.
Then again, it’s not like I’m a Great Panda.
Except for Dummy and Miki, every wolf in the pack rejects me.
Dummy is a female lone fighter with an above average level of fighting strength, while Miki is simply a wolf cub. To be honest, staying within this wolf pack, I don’t feel even the slightest sense of security.
I really thirst for more power.
I also long to interact with others; I really want to become a person.
Looking at the twinkling starry sky, I really wanted to sing the song《I am a Wolf From the North》.
I’m afraid that Yao Yao is the only one I can interact with!
RIght now, I genuinely miss her, a little.
Licking my wounded foreleg, it really was awkward. I could not lick the flesh, so could can only lick the fur.
It would have been great if I could take off this layer of fur.
Under the stars, over the prairie, who can ever understand this bro’s depression and loneliness?
Another old white wolf passed by, his savage and greedy eyes sweeping across my body. His long tongue licked along his large mouth and flowed out with disgusting drool.
I suddenly remembered. The wolf pack came back after only a single trip today, the food they had brought back wasn’t enough after all.
A few days before, the wolf pack would always be able to bring back enough food by themselves. The young wolves would be able to eat the leftovers and the old wolves could also settle their stomach. However today, dozens of the old wolves seemed to have ended with nothing.
In the case that there is a lack food, the wolf pack would always give priority to the younger wolves.
This is exactly the cruelty of the wolf pack’s world.
“System Mission: Escape from the Old Wolf’s pursuit. It is really hungry, and wants to use you to fill its stomach; Mission Reward: Unknown!”
Yao Yao’s melodic voice rang out in my ear.
I was stunned.
“Hurry up and run, you idiot!” Yao Yao loudly shouted.
Needless to say, I already knew, that old wolf has something in store for me, and that I didn’t even have any time to care about why Yao Yao had come out.
I turned and ran, fearing for my life. The only place that allow me to feel safe was where my foster mother was!
But that place is more than 30 meters away. Even if I start running right now, how can I escape from the old wolf’s pursuit?
Around 10 meters on the old wolf had already caught up with me. All of a sudden, he tripped me, and I fell head first into a tumble. After a few rolls, I stood up from the ground.
But unfortunately it was already too late for me. I only felt a sudden pain in my hind leg and then realised that my body was in midair. With a “ka-ca” sound, this time a bone of mine really ended up breaking.
A few drops of fresh blood dripped onto the underbrush.
I loudly cried out, but there was no response.
Don’t tell me that I’m going to be eaten by a hungry old wolf just like that?
I’m really not reconciled to that at all!
I can’t even go out with a bang!
The old wolf flung me with all his strength, and I flew seven or eight meters away. My body then fell down heavily, almost knocking me dizzy.
“Hurry and stand up! Quickly run along to where your mother is!” Yao Yao loudly shouted out.
One of my hind legs had already lost all feeling in it.
But the direction the old wolf had flung had me pushed me closer to where my foster mother was.
Fueled by my instinctual desire for survival, I kept limping toward where my foster mother was while incessantly sending out painful “ao ao” sounds, hoping that she would wake up faster.
But she simply did not wake up.
By the time I had crawled to where that lump of meat was, the old wolf was already standing by my side.
At the critical moment, I was hit by an inspiration. With one leg, I swept the meat to where the old wolf was. He sniffed it and swallowed it in one gulp, not even bothering to chew on it and not even afraid of choking to death.
But this allowed me to win some precious time at least.
I, your father, can’t allow myself to die!
With a bite, I bit down on foster mother’s ear. And then unyieldingly bit through her ear.
Foster mother, don’t blame me for this, just think of it as me giving you a piercing. I will give you a pair of diamond earrings in the future I promise.
Under the stimulus of the pain, foster mother stood up at once.
With my supporter awake, the old wolf had finally turned fearful.
Letting go of a breath of air, only now did I notice that my thigh has already been drenched in blood. The skin had even been ripped away, openly exposing the white bone underneath. It really motherf*cking hurts. I fear that it’ll be deformed from now on.
I hate this old wolf to the extreme.
Foster mother, that old bastard dares to bully your obedient son! Hurry up and bite him to death!
Foster mother licked my wound a bit, making me gasp from the pain. Which side are you on?
But seeing her turn and half lower her body, making preparations to battle against the old wolf, I couldn’t very well try to lecture her.
“Xiao Hui Hui, be careful.” Yao Yao’s voice appeared once again.
“What’s going on?”
“The System hasn’t said that the mission was completed!”
I raised my head to take a look around, and in the end more than ten bright eyes appeared in my surroundings.
