Chapter 694: No Do No Die
Ning Shu didn’t participate in the dinner since she still had a lot of things to do. She needed make sure the things she needed were easily portable, so she started working on grinding the herbs into powder and sharpening wooden sticks.
She made piles of sharpened wooden sticks in her free time in preparation for dealing with the wild beasts that would go crazy due to the earthquake.
An incident occurred during the dinner. Basically, Qian Jia fell in the snow and started bleeding right then and there on the scene.
Wu couldn’t do anything about it, so she hastily sent Zhi to call Ning Shu over.
Ning Shu: …
It was seriously a case of ‘no do, no die.’ Flaunting came with a risk.
Qian Jia simply wanted to show off the fact that she had gotten pregnant, and while at it, get her mates to dote on her more.
When Ning Shu got over there, she saw that Qian Jia was lying on the snow-covered ground as her mates hovered worriedly around her.
The blood that flowed out from Qian Jia’s lower half dyed the snow red and emitted faint steam. Qian Jia covered her stomach as she moaned in pain.
Ning Shu rolled her eyes and said, “Hurry up and carry her inside the cave.”
“Oh! Oh…” The male beastmen only snapped out of it once Ning Shu said that and they all rushed over to carry Qian Jia. Qian Jia was tugged at by multiple beastmen who refused to let someone else handle her.
So now Qian Jia was in even more pain. It felt like there was a knife stirring up her insides and she was getting intense cold and heat flashes.
“Ah, it hurts!” Qian Jia’s voice was shrill from pain. When the beastmen saw that Qian Jia looked like she was on the verge of dying, they hastily let go and allowed Rui to carry her back.
Ning Shu followed them into the cave as she asked Wu, “How is the divine maiden?”
Wu shook her head. “It looks like the young in her stomach is gone.”
Ning Shu knew that the child was done for the moment she saw Qian Jia. Qian Jia had been lying in the snow for a while so the shock along with the fact that Qian Jia’s genes were different from that of the beastmen in the first place made it really easy for her to have a miscarriage.
It was just like how the genes of pigs and the genes of dogs didn’t mix.
Qian Jia was inherently a different species from the beastmen.
However, Ning Shu was still surprised by the fact that Qian Jia would actually have a miscarriage despite her strong luck.
“Go take a look and see if you can save the divine maiden’s young with some herbs?” said Wu.
Ning Shu glanced at Qian Jia whose forehead was covered with sweat due to pain and said, “It’s not possible.”
When Qian Jia’s mates heard Ning Shu said that it wasn’t possible, they looked towards her with loathing.
Qian Jia’s cries gradually got weaker until her head finally dropped to the side and she passed out.
Ning Shu said, “Boil some hot water and help her wash up.”
Since it felt like the rest had nothing to do with her, she turned and left.
However, it was strange that Qian Jia had a miscarriage. In the original storyline, Qian Jia had a lot of children. There was no record of her first pregnancy resulting in a miscarriage.
She glanced up at the cloudy sky. It felt like there was a lead block pressing on her heart. Even though she knew that a calamity would be coming from the start, it was seriously balls-breaking to have to wait for it to come around.
It was like waiting for death. Not knowing would’ve been better.
“Cao, Cao…” Zhi walked into the cave, her head covered with snow, to ask, “Cao, do you know how the divine maiden lost her young?”
“Someone shoved her?” Ning Shu threw out a guess.
“How did you know? Then guess who did it?” Zhi looked really excited about gossiping.
Ning Shu guessed again, “A female beastman?”
“Cao, you truly are a female that’s communicated with the Divinity! You even guessed this right!” Zhi looked towards Ning Shu with a worshipful expression.
Ning Shu: …
This big sis is someone that’s seen all aspects of society after all.
“Then do you know who it was?” asked Zhi.
Ning Shu shook her head. It wasn’t like she was a god that could fortune-tell by pinching her fingers.
“It was Xie. Xie has shoved Jia down,” said Zhi as she slapped her leg. “Everyone saw Xie do it, so this matter has already reached the tribe chief’s ears.”
