When Beauty Meets Beasts - Chapter 49
“There’s no such thing as a permanent enemy,” Bai Di said. “There are only permanent interests. If we give them enough, we can make them our allies.”
Shuang Yun looked thoughtful. “What do you mean?”
Bai Di held out a black jewel pendant. “Show this to the leader of the Wild Horse Clan when you see him.”
Shuang Yun and Huanhuan’s gazes paused at the same time.
Shuang Yun was very surprised. “This is a high-level black crystal! Doesn’t it only appear in high-level beast cities?! How do you have such a precious crystal?”
Bai Di said, “It was brought back by Huanhuan.”
Shuang Yun immediately looked at Huanhuan, who looked confused.
She found the black gem pendant very familiar, but she couldn’t remember how it had come about.
She forgot about that memory due to her illness.
But instinct told her that the black stone pendant was important to her. She couldn’t abandon it.
Lin Huanhuan couldn’t help but ask, “Can you return this pendant to me after you finish using
Bai Di agreed readily. “Of course. It’s yours. No one can take it.”
Lin Huanhuan was relieved.
As long as the pendant could be returned to her.
Bai Di said to Shuang Yun, “Tell the leader of the Wild Horse Clan that there were originally many high-level black crystals like this in the Rock Wolf Tribe, but they were all snatched away by the Black River Wolf Tribe. If the Wild Horse Clan cooperates with us, we’ll give the black crystals to them.”
Lin Huanhuan asked carefully, “But we don’t have that many black crystals. What should we give to the wild horses after this?”
Bai Di smiled. “They’ll have to ask the Black River Wolf Tribe about that. After all, the Black River Wolf Tribe stole the black crystals. Only they know where they’re hidden. What does it have to do with us?”
Lin Huanhuan immediately felt that this handsome and gentle guy in front of her was really evil!
The Black River Wolf Tribe would never clear themselves of suspicion!
Shuang Yun immediately decided. “We’ll do as you say!”
Shuang Yun braved the snow and descended the mountain to quietly find the leader of the wild horses.
Shuang Yuni s suggestion of cooperation was a little tempting, but in the end, the leader of the Wild Horse Clan refused.
Although the Black River Wolf Tribe was very despicable, the Rock Wolf Tribe might not be kind, The Wild Horse Clan did not want to drive away the tiger at the front door and bring in wolves at the back.
Shuang Yun had long expected this reaction from the other party. He calmly took out the black gem pendant. “Look at this.”
When the leader of the Wild Horse Clan saw the black gem pendant, his eyes widened. He asked in shock, “A high-level black crystal? How do you have such a precious crystal?!”
“We originally had a lot of these crystals, but unfortunately, they were all snatched away by the Black River Wolf Tribe. If you’re willing to cooperate with us, those black crystals will all be yours. I just need to take back the supplies that were snatched away. What do you think?”
The eyes of the Wild Horse Clan’s leader followed the black gem pendant. He couldn’t help but swallow,
If such precious crystals could be owned by the Wild Horse Clan, the Wild Horse Clan would definitely become the most powerful clan on this land!
In the future, they could use black crystals to exchange for all kinds of rare materials from beast cities. They might even be able to obtain the qualifications to live in a beast city! Just thinking about that scene made the leader of the Wild Horse Clan excited.
He gritted his teeth and agreed to Shuang Yun’s suggestion.
“We’ll work together!”
Shuang Yun took back the black gem pendant and smiled. “A wise choice.”
Shuang Yun returned to the rock mountain and returned the black gem pendant to Lin Huanhuan.
Lin Huanhuan carefully hung the pendant around her neck.
She gently touched the black gem and kept thinking about how she had obtained this pendant.
The long-awaited system prompt suddenly rang out in her mind.
“Congratulations to the host for triggering a special mission! Please collect crystals of five different colors. After the mission is completed, the host will receive a special reward!”
Lin Huanhuan was stunned.
This was the first time she had triggered a special mission.
What was the special reward mentioned by the system? It sounded very impressive!
Lin Huanhuan immediately asked Shuang Yun, “Are these crystals difficult to obtain?”
Being watched by the little female’s sparkling eyes, ShuangYun felt especially happy. If he were in his original form, the wolf tail behind him would definitely be wagging.
He raised his chin. ‘Crystals are a special energy gem. Soul beasts can absorb energy from crystals to strengthen themselves. Almost all the mines that can produce crystals are controlled by the beast cities. It’s very difficult for ordinary tribes to obtain crystals.”
Lin Huanhuan couldn’t help but be disappointed. I‘Then wouldn’t it be very difficult for me to gather five crystals of different colors?”
“Why do you want so many crystals?”
Lin Huanhuan stammered and could not answer.
Seeing that she didn’t say anything, Shuang Yun didn’t continue asking. He casually threw the animal hide bag he carried to her.
Lin Huanhuan quickly caught the hide bag.
She opened the bag and saw more than ten crystals inside.
They were all transparent colorless crystals the size of fingernails.
Lin Huanhuan asked slowly, “Are these also crystals?”
The system gave an answer. “Yes.”
Shuang Yun thought that she was talking to him, so he snorted. “Of course, they’re crystals! Colored crystals are very rare. Most of the currencies circulating among the tribes are crystal coins polished from colorless crystals.”
Lin Huanhuan suddenly remembered that when she went to the market with Bai Di, Bai Di had taken out crystal coins to buy many things.
It turned out that crystal coins were equivalent to money!
Lin Huanhuan took out a crystal coin and returned the animal hide bag to Shuang Yun.
“I only need one crystal.”
Shuang Yun frowned and said, “Take what I give you.”
After finding a mate, the males in other families would hand over all their assets to the females. This meant that they had become a family, and all their assets would belong to the females.
Previously, Shuang Yun had already moved all his food and hides into the cellar of Huanhuan’s house. Only these crystal coins had always been with him. Since she liked them, he would give them all to her.
But Huanhuan refused to accept his crystal coins.
Was it because he had too few crystal coins?
Shuang Yun immediately said, “When spring comes, I’ll definitely be able to hunt a lot of prey. I’ll exchange all those prey for crystals. I can get as many as you want.”
Lin Huanhuan quickly waved her hand. “No need. Those are your prey. You can keep them for yourself.”
Shuang Yun was instantly unhappy.
“Are you looking down on me?!”
Lin Huanhuan’s hair stood on end from his glare. She stammered, “No, no!” “If you aren’t looking down on me, why aren’t you willing to accept my things?”
Lin Huanhuan did not understand what he meant and could not answer.
Seeing that she was silent, Shuang Yun was even more certain of his guess. He was so angry that he turned around and left.
He ran so fast that Lin Huanhuan could not catch up to him.
She had no choice but to put away the bag of crystal coins. She planned to keep them well and return them to Shuang Yun when he needed money in the future..
