After I opened my eyes, the world seemed different from the world in the past. Surprisingly, my vision can see really far. My sense of smell is really sensitive. The taste of soil, the smell of grass and there’s a fishy smell in the air at the moment.
I blinked. I felt that my body was a little strange. I stood up with shaking legs, but there are four legs. They are four furry claws. I raised my “hand”. Startled, I looked at it for a moment. This…if I’m not wrong, this group is called tiger. I turned and looked at my back. I saw my long body and hairy ass. There’s also a white tail with a nice pattern.
I was startled for a moment. Then the memories began to come back. Oh! I fell into the well of animals and reincarnated into an animal.
I hugged my face with the claws.
Great insult ah great insult!
Such a great existence as I, a fairy cloud, turned into such a state! I bit back my bitter tears. My broken heart and sadness will not change the fact that I’ve turned into an animal. It was totally disheartened. I was stupefied for days. My heart felt sour. But then I thought that Chu Kong also turned into an animal, something with four legs, my mood turned better.
Well, Heavenly emperor Lee, you arrange it. Let’s see how you will turn this into an inspriring love story about two animals that couldn’t even talk. I’m waiting.
I sighed positively. Suddenly something bit my neck. I smelled the smell of the tigress. My “mother” has come…
Perhaps it’s instinct. Though I was now dangling and the tigress biting me in my neck, I was not wary.
If she used a little more force she can bite me to death. But I let myself dangling from her mouth. She brought me back to “home.” I returned “home”without having to touch a single grass. There are two of my siblings playing. Seeing that the tigress has returned, they kept walking around mother to drink milk. The tigress put me down. Lazily, I lay on the ground with a look of needing someone to assist me to eat. My siblings immediately scrapped around mother. I looked at mother’s hairy belly. Bitter tears felt down my eyes. I stayed at the tigress side and shivered. Suddenly, my back felt warm. A warm and strangely comfortable feeling climbed on my back. I turned and looked in dismay. The tigress extended her tongue and licked my hairy forehead (see the first picture).
I was startled at being licked. In the time I was shocked, she licked me from head to toe. Finally, contented she touched my head as if to say: “En, I’m done, you can go play.”
So like this I was actually…being belittled by a tigress…
Although I know that she is using her tongue to comb my hair, but I …I …I burst into tears. While in the netherworld, why didn’t I drink that soup of oblivion?
With an extremely contradictory heart, I hobbled to the belly side. Looking at my siblings sucking and hearing my belly rumbling, I closed my eyes, bent my head and leaned over the belly. Such a life is also an experience.
After living for a few days like this, I came to my senses. Now even though I’m an animal, but that doesn’t prevent me from practicing. I can practice and become a demon. Then I can live a decent human life! But the problem is that even if I practice very much, I won’t cultivate and become Yue Lao’s temple’s fairy. I would just become something parallel to that. In my previous practices, I would only increase my cultivation. Now I don’t have a clue how to start. I hung my head and sighed.
The warm sunlight sprinkled on me through the dense foliage. I yawned lazily. In my hazy memories I saw Chu Kong rocking on a chair reading. He said: “Xiao Xiang Zi, ‘I observe one, to keep the place in peace’ did you understand those words?”
Of course I understand. The one who doesn’t understand is that fool.
Right! I still remember the tricks Chu Kong taught me in the previous lifetime. Before I was too stupid and didn’t learn them well. Chu Kong has been teaching me how to enter. Now I only need to recall his guidance. I was excited and began to jump. The two tiny tigers next to me also began to jump. I ignored them. I looked for a quiet place and tried to remember all those tricks. Meditating, I started my cultivation.
Three months haven’t even passed when the tigress began to teach us how to hunt. My reactions are significantly faster than the two other cubs. According to the current situation, I would be able to talk after one year of practicing. This knowledge made me very happy. In my heart, I was very impressed by Chu Kong and his tricks. No wonder in the previous lifetime, he cultivated from a mortal to a demigod in just two decades. Although that guy is really arrogant, he does have some true abilities.
Today the sun is just right. The air is full of cultivation. I took a rest and rolled on the ground. I began to think about the previous lifetime.
In fact if I stop and think about it, Chu Kong didn’t treat me extremely bad in the previous life. While in the netherworld, new hate and old hate stacked together, that’s why I was so angry. Now that I think about it, Chu Kong likes to order people around, likes to bully people, has a bad temper, is harsh on people, doing things a little overboard, but he treated that disciple, silly Xiang well. At the end, he even cut out his heart to save me. It can be considered that we formed some sort of friendship. Is it only friendship? When he cut out his heart, he didn’t hesitate. If it was me, I wouldn’t be able to do it. After all is my own flesh. It’s different from when I saved Lu Hai Kong. When I saved Lu Hai Kong some other people did it.
The sunlight went into my eyes. It felt a little hazy. I don’t know why, suddenly I remember that day on top of the roof. Drunken Chu Kong kissed Xiang.
My limbs were stiff. My mind turned blank in an instant.
He didn’t drink the soup of oblivion. I know. He knows it better than me, but in the previous lifetime he……
It must be the wine that muddled his head or….A thought formed in my head that made me blush. But tigers do not blush. So my whole body turned really hot. It can’t be…it can’t be!
That arrogant celestial star Chu Kong actually….actually fell in love with me? I shook my head, forcing myself to throw this absurd thought out of my mind. I and he are enemies, doomed enemies! Although in the two previous lifetimes, no matter if it was I who has memories or Chu Kong who has memories, we didn’t use a ruthless hand against each other. But when we see each other we always fight! Although it seems that this time it’s only I who beat him, he only used his mouth….
Why am I explaining for him?!
I sharpened my claws on a piece of wood. I saw it as Chu Kong’s face and happily clawed it. After my heart calmed down, I put my head on the piece of wood. Suddenly a fantastic thought crossed my mind. If Chu Kong is like Lu Hai Kong, if he likes me, then I’ll also be happy. My body turned slightly hot, but I didn’t think it’s a bad thing.
Staying by the tigress side, I grew very fast. After about a year, the tigress is pregnant again. She drove us away to let us search for our own territory. Timely, I can talk now. I can be regarded as an intelligent animal. I don’t need to use much effort to search for food unlike my siblings. Being a king of the forest is quite comfortable. At least none of the animals whom want to continue living will dare to provoke me. Usually it’s like that, but in life there are always things you don’t expect.
It was a beautiful sunset. I lay quietly at the lake, drinking water. Suddenly, a breeze of wind passed by. I smelled a prey. But this sort of prey has always been in groups. Then why do I only smell one smell?
I looked up. The sunrays make the lake sparkling bright. At the other side of the lake a black animal was also quietly drinking water. His looks felt familiar. A thought flashed in my mind. I gently spoke: “Chu Kong?”
The animal stiffened. Then he also looked up. Our eyes met. Instantly I recognized the other’s identity.
I laughed really hard. The animal’s body turned stiffer. I was lying on the floor and beat my chest unstoppable with my claws.
“Wild boar! Hahahaha! You actually reincarnated into the prince of pigs1! Hahaha!”
Chu Kong seemed a little angry. He turned around and walked away. I saw it and tried my best to stop laughing. I stepped into the lake and swam to him.
“Hey! Wait, I’ve something to discus with you.”
Once again, I set foot on shore. I shook the water. Looking at him, I laughed with a “pu” sound again. Chu Kong seemed really mad now. He hmpfed coldly. Proudly he raised his head and said: “I really don’t know what’s so proud about a girl turning into a tigress. Is this the irony of the gods?”
His voice was really thick. It’s deeper than usual. I didn’t have the strength to refute him after all that laughter. Chu Kong couldn’t tolerate it anymore and kicked the stones on the ground. One after one they landed on my head. They made my head hurt. I got mad: “Don’t you like me?! Why do you always bully me?!”
Chu Kong was startled. He took a few steps back. He stammered for quite a while before saying angrily: “Who who who who who……who the fuck likes you?!”
“In the previous you didn’t drink the soup of oblivion, but you still kissed me!”
“That’s because I was drunk.”
“You don’t like seeing me with the stone demon. You were jealous.”
“That’s because I hate the stone demon.”
“Finally, you dug your heart out to save me.”
“That’s only because I own you a favor.”
“No matter what else you say, you, Lu Hai Kong absolutely fell in love with me in that lifetime!”
“That’s because I drank the soup of oblivion and was delirious!”
I asked, he replied. It felt like he rehearsed it for countless of times in his heart. I don’t know why, but hearing those answers, I felt disappointed. Fortunately, animals couldn’t make facial expressions. I nodded and said: “So it’s like that, in your heart you still want to harm me.”
Chu Kong said fiercely: “This conclusion, how did you…”
His voice stopped, seeming like he eat the last part that he was about to say. He was silent for a while. He took a few breaths, gritted his teeth and said: “That’s right! I just want to harm you. Hurry up and go reincarnate and get out of my sight.”
“Heng, do you think I like to look at you?”
I rubbed my forehead and said: “Wild boar Kong, let’s make a deal. Let’s draw a clear line. In this lifetime, you don’t step into my territory and I don’t step into your territory. Don’t care how Heavenly emperor Li has arranged it. If we never contact each other again, it’ll be alright.”
Chu Kong stared at me for a moment. He didn’t say anything when the earth shook. A group of birds fly by. The mountain suddenly turned lively. I was startled.
“Is the earth ox turning his body?”
Chu Kong said with a serious tone: “No.”
He immediately ran to the west. I shook my head. I don’t know the reason, so I curiously ran after him.
I’m sorry for ruining your image of Chu Kong ^^
- Pigs are seen as stupid, dirty and lazy in China. XXZ is mocking Chu Kong.
