Chapter 1086: Let’s Be Friends
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“You’re too short, boy! Talking to you like this is rather inconvenient.” The black bear expressed his dissatisfaction with the state in which he had to keep looking down.
Yun Yang was not offended in the slightest as he smiled and said, “I don’t like this either. Look, I have to keep looking up as well, and since I don’t have the divine ability to transform myself larger or smaller as Senior does, there’s nothing I can do.”
The black bear thought for a moment and found what he said made sense. “Well, since you can’t grow taller, I’ll make myself smaller. It’s too tiring talking like this!”
He had hardly finished when his gigantic body suddenly shrunk, then shrunk again, and again…
Qin Ruogu was so anxious that he seemed like a cat on hot bricks. ‘Why are you becoming friends with him? I thought you promised me to fight today! What you are doing right now is not what we agreed upon last night!’
“Bear Saint King!”
“Shut up, boy! I know what to do!” The black bear turned and shot Qin Ruogu a fierce look. “You better not spoil my mood!”
As he grew smaller and smaller, the black bear felt the smell coming from Yun Yang grow richer. It was not the kind of smell that would make him drool like food, but a smell that gave him a feeling of intimacy.
At last, a charmingly naive middle-sized black bear appeared in front of Yun Yang. He was as tall as Yun Yang, but had plump arms and legs, a fat neck, and a pair of fat lips. No matter how Yun Yang studied the bear, he still could not figure out which part of him made him look handsome. Was the aesthetic sense of bears so different from human beings?
“Much better now,” the black bear said thoughtlessly. “What’s your name? Do you have any wine?”
“Wine?” Yun Yang was struck dumb. The bear was asking for wine? It was a praise to say he behaved very much like a human, but it seemed he was more human than a bear. Was he really not some man wearing a bearskin?
“Of course! In fact, not only I have wine, but I also have plenty of delicious food, more than enough to fill our stomachs!”
“Aye, take them out quickly! How can a gathering between brothers be without wine? We have to get drunk today!” As soon as he spoke, saliva began to run from his mouth.
“Damnit, I’ve forgotten myself! Whenever I think of wine, my mouth always…” The black bear wiped his mouth with a paw and actually laughed at himself.
“Bear Saint King!” Qin Ruogu could not stand it any longer. He rushed over from behind and said, “The reason I asked you here is to fight the match. Don’t forget that the outcome of this match will affect Beast Trainer Sect’s thousands of years of glory! Drinking now is not worthy of…”
“Fu*k your trainer sect!” The black bear exploded. “Try to mention that whatever trainer sect again! Drinking is the most important thing now! Do you know what it means by the most important thing?!”
“…” Qin Ruogu was struck dumb.
It was a fact that Beast Trainer Sect was much hated by high-level mystical beasts, but once they were tamed, the hatred should be gone, especially for a guardian divine beast who had stayed in Beast Trainer Sect for thousands of years. Shouldn’t he have already gotten used to it?
But, why did he…
“Senior Bear Saint King, I hope you will abide by the spirit of the contract…” Qin Ruogu began to play emotional cards. “If not necessary, this junior would not want to use the contract to restrain you, but this match…”
The black bear rolled his eyes and bared his fangs, “Why don’t you try and use that contract?”
Unhappy with Qin Ruogu’s attitude, the black bear grabbed a wine jar taken out by Yun Yang and cracked its mud seal with a slap. Then, he threw his head back and began to drink, before the jar shattered with a pop.
But, its inside was already completely dry, as if it had been exposed under the sun for a thousand years in a desert.
“A fine wine! A fuc*ing fine wine…” The bear snorted and said, “You’ve tricked me for thousands of years and yet you still want to trick me!”
Yun Yang knew there must be something between them, so he simply stood by and watched like an onlooker while taking out pots of food and being a good dining companion. “Senior Bear King, come, you must try this dish. It’s delicious!”
The black bear patted Yun Yang on the shoulder and said, “You’re good, very good!” Suddenly he laughed merrily. “I came to this world thousands of years ago, and so far, you are the first human who dares to let me pat on the shoulder. Hah! You’re good, really good!”
As he said that, he patted Yun Yang on the shoulder again.
Yun Yang suddenly felt bad for him.
‘Had this black bear never enjoyed a bit of trust in his life? Is it really appropriate to be so friendly to someone whom he had just met for the first time? Initially, my plan was to kill him when he had shrunk smaller after being tricked by me. But, with the way he is treating me now, I feel somewhat guilty in doing that…’
The black bear kept his body the same size, but his mouth suddenly expanded as he poured two pots of food into it. Then, he drank another two jars of wine before breathing out a long sigh with a look of reminiscence in his eyes.
“The wine is good, and so are you. When I have finished drinking later, we will fight each other. You won’t mind, will you? I did promise that little guy over there, and I can’t go back on my own words!” The bear was surprisingly polite.
“No, I don’t mind at all. A promise is a promise, and a man’s word is his bond,” said Yun Yang. “We are friends, and such a trifle thing will not affect our friendship.”
The black bear was delighted. “Good, good, good!”
All of a sudden, he opened his mouth wide and leaned over, putting his jaws around Yun Yang’s body.
In the face of such a sudden change, Yun Yang did not move at all. Instead, he was still taking out pots of food and jars of wine, and his expression was unchanged.
Then, the black bear sniffed around Yun Yang with his big nose. It was a long time before he pulled his head back with a look of intoxication, and the way he looked at Yun Yang was even kinder now.
Yun Yang had his own definition for friends; whomever he took as friends, he would trust them without reservation. His unflinching attitude, as a result, had boosted the bear’s good opinion of him.
The mystical beast’s friendliness toward Yun Yang just now was based on the inexplicable fondness, but it was now based on the trust between friends, and even the kindred feelings between brothers!
“It’s been thousands of years, yet today is my happiest day since that old fella who tricked me died…” There was a look of loss in his eyes. No one would have believed that a bear, a mystical beast, would have such a look in its eyes.
Yun Yang did not say anything. He knew he could not interrupt the black bear now. Whether man or mystical beast, memory had always been the most precious treasure and could not be violated.
The black bear drank another jar of wine and his eyes grew misty. “Before he died, that old fella asked me…he asked me to guard his sect for him, protect his disciples, and their disciples…and not let anyone bully them.”
“It’s been so many years that I almost can’t remember his face. But the promise…oh that fuc*ing promise…”
