Volume I – Isolated island survival memoir
Chapter D – Carelessly and haphazardly
Hugging the fox woman gently in his bosom, Liu Zhenhan felt that her body had gradually begun to warm up, and this was a good thing, as long as her body could regain its heat, perhaps her life could be saved.
Liu Zhenhan removed the wolf skin from her shoulder, revealing her soft and tender shoulder. He carefully picked up her delicate arm and put on his own waist to give it a support, then, he began to rub her arm with his hands. Gradually, her arm began to heat up and turned red.
Liu Zhenhan was not blinking, as if he had forgotten how to blink. His head was rested on his folded right hand while he was using his left hand to rub her arm. His face was close to hers and he was unknowingly observing her extremely beautiful face and could not help but appreciate her beauty.
She had a high nose, beautifully carved facial features, soft baby-like smooth skin. The ivory color of her skin made a stark contrast to her fiery red hair. It seemed like the creator had a lot of free time when he sculpted her.
As he continued to look at her face, it gave him an indescribable feeling. He recalled how before joining the army, his friends had urged him to meet his hometown’s most famous slut. She had left a similar impression on his mind.
Wait, what? Liu Zhenhan immediately denied this thought. How could he think like that about a pitiful girl he had saved? How could he have such shitty thoughts about her? He scolded his brain several times for bringing up such a thought.
Erotic! Yes, she was very seductive! She had an inherent charm that could shake any man’s heart and leave them burning in passionate desires! This face certainly belonged to the goddess of seduction! Liu Zhenhan was at a loss of words, he couldn’t find suitable words to describe her almost indescribable beauty.
She had a high and pointed chin, long and beautiful eyelashes, small juicy lips, and a perfect figure. Countless women claim to possess unmatched beauty, several empresses were said to have killer beauty, enough to cause the downfall of nations. Some beauties are solemn, some are mighty, some are cold like iceberg, but the beauty of this fox woman was beyond description. Once a man would lay his eyes on her, he would find himself trapped in a constant search for an explanation to understand what he was seeing. Of course, he would fail to do so since there is no explanation behind her beauty, but he would still continue to try, again and again.
Although he had not seen her eyes but his imagination was rude enough to imagine her eyes as a pair of beautiful gems, a pair of talking eyes with unimaginable depth that could suck away his very soul with just one look.
As he kept on thinking about her beauty, he unintentionally held her tightly. The coconut shell had to go through more and more rapid poundings from beneath that finally brought him back to reality. Liu Zhenhan let go of her and mentally scolded himself for being a despicable hoodlum, but he could not control his thoughts from going wild. He knew that he should not have such evil intentions, especially after rescuing her life, but he was still drowning in a whirlpool of desires.
He suddenly felt something soft and furry rubbing against his belly. He gawked, looked down and saw Fruit sticking out its small head from his bosom, its big ears were proudly dangling against his belly and there was a naughty look in its eyes.
“Little rascal! You scared me to death!” Liu Zhenhan blushed and made a funny face towards Fruit by sticking out his tongue. Fruit also stuck out its small pink tongue as its big tail was swinging proudly.
Fruit’s interference happened at the right time and proved vital in dragging him out of his wild fantasies.
He finally came out of the trap set up by her peerless beauty and indescribable charm, but it once again brought up a fairly important question in his mind.
He had thought about this several times before but was unable to reach an answer. The question was – How did he come to this island and where was it located? He was sure about one thing that he lost his life on the battlefield. This scene was still vivid in his memories, but then he woke up on a deserted island. Then he continued to encounter strange beasts with strange abilities and finally rescued an exceptionally beautiful fox woman with a tail.
Liu Zhenhan did not know how many times he tried to find an answer to this question and each time, he felt as if his brain would explode before drawing any conclusion.
The sky color was getting brighter as the sun’s half smiling face gradually peeked from the horizon. The rays of sunlight made beautiful refraction patterns as they passed through the dew drops hanging on the thorny bushes. Liu Zhenhan felt like he was having a beautiful dream.
Just then, an alluring aroma entered his nose and pulled him back to the reality.
Liu Zhenhan felt that her body was not as cold as it was last night. He quickly spread the wolf skin on the grass bed and laid her down, then folded half of the wolf skin over her to cover her body. He did this to contain her body heat from above and below.
In doing so, the wolf skin slipped a bit and he ended up seeing something he shouldn’t have and slapped his forehead to punish himself. He immediately pulled the wolf skin slightly and covered her thighs and big red tail.
Her eyebrows wrinkled slightly. Liu Zhenhan felt that she might be thirsty and quickly picked up a coconut and poked a hole in it with his machete. He wanted her to drink coconut juice since it contained water and natural vitamins.
But her lips were terribly dry and remained closed all the time. So he could not pour in the coconut juice properly, spilling it several times on the wolf skin.
Liu Zhenhan touched her head and noticed that it was burning hot.
Liu Zhenhan knew that high fever could sometimes be fatal. He quickly shot open a coconut and pulled over Fruit, placing it in front of the coconut and pointed his finger towards the coconut.
Fruit quite innocently jumped towards the coconut and opened its mouth as if to take a bite, but before it could do so, Liu Zhenhan took the coconut away from its reach.
“Wu” Liu Zhenhan pointed towards the coconut and gestured, as if telling Fruit to release the cold air from its mouth.
Fruit shook its head and very cutely showed its unwillingness.
“Hurry up!” Liu Zhenhan put on a serious look on his face and strictly said.
Fruit quickly jumped towards the coconut and shot a cold breath on it. The juice inside immediately crystallized and turned into a mass of ice.
After seeing this, the fatigued expression on Liu Zhenhan’s face was replaced by a bright one. He immediately hugged Fruit and fiercely kissed it few times.
He wrapped the ice in his sock and put it on the fox woman’s forehead then sighed with relief. He quickly sucked a mouthful of coconut juice and slowly fed to her mouth to mouth. She coughed a few times but the juice still managed its way into her stomach.
“Good!” Liu Zhenhan wiped the sweat from his face.
Before he could rest for a while, Fruit quickly ran to the place where she was sleeping and slept next to her on the wolf skin with its belly up. It blinked a few times and looked at Liu Zhenhan then opened its mouth, pretending to be thirsty and called out ‘Fruit’ ‘Fruit’ several times while its big tail was swaying back and forth.
“You spoiled brat!” Liu Zhenhan rolled his eyes but did not scold Fruit, instead poured some coconut juice in its small mouth.
He saw water dripping from the roof and began to exercise his brain, thinking of a way to warm up her body. He thought of something, picked up the machete and went to the tamarisk forest. He cut off three-four good vines and tied them together to put together a makeshift pulling cart to carry things.
On the way, he saw a kind of small animal that looked like a fat rabbit. It was peeking out of a rabbit-hole. Liu Zhenhan immediately rushed forward to catch this fat rabbit, however, it suddenly shot a water arrow at him. He instinctively dodged and it went grazing his arm a bit.
“Fuck, Fuck!” Liu Zhenhan’s face contorted in pain, but he immediately grabbed the fat rabbit and twisted its neck to execute it.
These fat rabbits were not rare in this area and he saw many more hidden in the bushes. As soon as they saw him coming with his pulling card, they immediately drilled holes and hid under the ground. He just wanted to catch one but never expected to get hurt in the process.
Liu Zhenhan looked at the wound, although a lot of blood was flowing out but the wound was not too deep. It was just a scratch wound.
“This damned island!” Liu Zhenhan shook his head and felt that there was no hope to find any normal creature in this place. Besides those seabirds, all other creatures he had seen so far on this island possessed strange ability. Even the sea creatures such as that crab he ate earlier, and the mussels, seemed unusual.
He went home and looked for the fox woman’s skirt kept in a corner. He quickly ripped the skirt and used the torn piece of cloth to bandage his wounded arm.
He cut off the branches and bark of a red willow tree with his machete, exposing the wet gum-like substance inside. He truncated the bark and silently praised the machete for being so easy-to-use.
This gum-like substance was inflammable and became crucial in starting a fire. He put together a stove inside the house and used stones to encircle the fire.
Last night, he had put two the cauldrons outside to collect rainwater. He skinned the fat rabbit and put its meat into a cauldron and began to cook.
He went back to touch the fox woman’s forehead. Her body temperature had come down to normal and she was on the verge of opening her eyes. This made him very happy as he laughed foolishly.
Liu Zhenhan spread her clothes on the ground for drying in the sun. He was blushing all the while thinking what would she think if she woke up now?
His face burned up just from thinking about it.
Liu Zhenhan smelled fumes of meat fragrance coming from the mussel cauldron and turned his head. He saw Fruit standing on the stove stones and curiously peeking inside the cauldron. He was frightened and quickly rushed to the stove, and grabbed its big ears to carry it down.
“Do you want to burn yourself to death, you little beast!” He scolded Fruit, and in response, a cute expression appeared on its face as if his concern and scolding fell on deaf ears.
Liu Zhenhan cursed for a long time and his arm hurt more than before. He saw blood seeping out of the cloth bandage and a dark red stain appeared on it.
“Damn, from the moment I have set foot on this island, bad luck just cannot seem to leave me alone!” Liu Zhenhan tightened the bandage cloth and felt that god was being unjust to him. In spite of being a veteran soldier, he was injured by a rabbit. Today, he really lost face in his own eyes.
Just then, he saw the rabbit meat burning and hurried to put off the fire and removed the stove from there. Then he carried her over to the place where stove was kept earlier thinking that this place was fairly hot and definitely a better choice for her to rest. However, at this time, the wolf skin slipped from her body, exposing her creamy **
And, right at this moment, she finally opened her eyes a little. Liu Zhenhan was suddenly thrown into confusion because he wanted to set the wolf skin but actually did not dare to do it when her eyes opened. He did not dare to see what kind of look was there in her eyes and turned his face, but since he did not get a sense of proportion, his hand did not grab the wolf skin but something else. He felt grabbing a thick and soft thing and it certainly wasn’t the wolf skin. He immediately turned his head to look what he grabbed and their eyes met.
Liu Zhenhan’s face as if turned into a large block of iron.
