Being Chieftan at a Moe Tribe - Chapter 36
Then, Fu Rui began to explain the use of whistle notes. He explained what three short and one long whistles meant, as well as what three long and one short whistles represented.
Every different tempo and pitch had their own meaning. As long as they could remember it, it would be best to use these whistles to give orders on the battlefield.
It looked useless. However, in fact, in this relatively primitive environment, having this advantage gave the beast-eared tribe a chance of winning against the porcupine tribe.
Fu Rui had made so many preparations just for the arrival of the day when they would fight the porcupine tribe.
The accumulation of these small chances at victory gave them confidence in defeating the strong!
Halfway through the lesson, there was a commotion behind the crowd.
It was the eagle girl.
Over a hundred pairs of eyes turned toward her. Xi Xi was an outsider, so it was inevitable that she felt a little awkward here.
“I… didn’t disturb you, did I?”
In order to understand what she was saying, Fu Rui used the [Proficiency in Languages of Any Race] that he had previously received to understand the language of the eagle people. At the same time, he placed his hands behind his back and acted like an expert.
“No. Since you’re awake, I want to know why you came to our beast-eared tribe.”
Xi Xi looked at Li in confusion. Then, Li hurriedly explained, “Rui is now the Village Chief of the beast-eared tribe. If you have any issues, just let him know.”
“You’re the Village Chief?” Xi Xi’s brows furrowed slightly with displeasure.
Fu Rui simply nodded slightly.
There was no need for him to explain too much to outsiders. Xi Xi would naturally say what she wanted to say. Meanwhile, he wasn’t interested in hearing what she didn’t want to say.
After all, respect was mutual.
Since the beast-eared girls had given him enough trust and respect, he reciprocated with the same attitude.
It had nothing to do with their looks or figure.
Li was already very familiar with Fu Rui, but she had never seen such a cold expression on his face before. Thus, she hurriedly grabbed Xi Xi’s hand and whispered into her ear.
After a long while, Xi Xi came to a sudden realization, and a hint of admiration appeared in her eyes as she looked at Fu Rui.
“I really envy the beast-eared tribe for having such a great wizard.”
“I’m not a wizard. I’m just their Village Chief.”
Fu Rui waved his hand, “Tell me your origins and your purpose in coming to the beast-eared tribe.”
Upon hearing this, Xi Xi’s expression became a little dejected as she began to narrate her story.
It turned out that she was a candidate for the tribe leader of the eagle-bodied tribe. A few days ago, they were invaded by the porcupine tribe, and more than half of her tribe members were dead or injured. Even their witch was severely injured. Meanwhile, the most precious Stone of Talent in the tribe was plundered by the porcupine tribe.
Their witch had heard from one of the elites that the porcupine tribe was about to invade the beast-eared tribe, so Xi Xi had immediately rushed over after the battle to warn her old friend Li to prepare for the attack.
However, she did not expect that the current beast-eared tribe had a new Village Chief.
“What is the Stone of Talent?”
Fu Rui quickly caught onto the main point of Xi Xi’s story. This was the first time he had heard of such a fantastic name in this world.
Xi Xi explained, “This is a mysterious stone that can help people awaken their natural talents. Moreover, it can only be used with the ancient bloodline in my body.”
As she spoke, she sneered, “It’s laughable that those stupid porcupines don’t know this. They simply snatched the Stone of Talent and treated it like a treasure.”
“Do you still have the Stone of Talent in your tribe?” Fu Rui was tempted and wanted to get a piece to study.
“No, that was the last piece.”
Xi Xi shook her head before heaving a long sigh. “Alright, I’ve already delivered the news. You should all move out as soon as possible. The porcupine scouts will be here soon.”
“Move out? Why should we move out?” Fu Rui raised his eyebrows and looked at her with a meaningful gaze.
“Are you not moving?”
Xi Xi furrowed her eyebrows again. “From what Li said, you’re a mighty wizard, but why would you make such a stupid decision?”
Fu Rui smiled, but did not speak.
Li was a little unhappy. “Rui has never made a stupid decision. Please watch your attitude.”
“Perhaps I was wrong.”
Xi Xi shrugged nonchalantly and looked directly at Li as she extended an invitation to Li. “Li, I sincerely invite you to visit my tribe. What do you think?”
“No.” Li immediately refused.
Xixi fell silent as her eyes darted between Fu Rui and Li, as if she were trying to think of a way to get Fu Rui to order Li to stay in her tribe for a few days.
Then, Fu Rui suddenly said, “If you’re worried about Li, you can stay in the beast-eared tribe for two days. If the situation isn’t good, it won’t be too late to take her away.”
Xi Xi was intrigued. This was indeed a good suggestion.
She flapped her wings and flew into the air. “In that case, I will stay here for two days. If you are unable to hold on after being beaten by the porcupine tribe, I will take Li away.”
Her words made the beast-eared girls furious. Was she looking down on their tribe?
However, Fu Rui ignored her and continued his whistling lesson.
Xi Xi had no idea what he was talking about, so she flew toward the forest.
Li chased after her and asked, “Xi Xi, where are you going?”
“I’m going to hunt. Wait for me, I’ll bring you something delicious.”
“Don’t go. The village has…”
Before Li could finish speaking, the eagle girl had already disappeared from her sight.
Fu Rui patted her on the shoulder and asked her to return to her original position. Then, he taught the beast-eared girls all the remaining whistle techniques.
Hence, they had another job in the afternoon.
It was to make bamboo tubes with holes.
Moreover, the bamboo tubes had to be similar to the one in Fu Rui’s hands, and the discrepancy couldn’t be too great. Otherwise, the effects of the whistling sounds would be greatly reduced.
Correspondingly, Fu Rui also received a certain amount of Civilization Points as a reward for teaching them long-distance communication technology.
Then, Fu Rui examined the shoe-making team led by Tu Tu, the bow-making team led by Li, and the team led by Xia, who was digging trenches and laying traps outside. As a result, he obtained the latest information in the tribe.
They had 34 communication bamboo tubes.
The shoe-making team had made 307 pairs of grass shoes.
They also had 255 stone spears.
Meanwhile, the bow-making team had made 144 bows.
Correspondingly, they also had 144 release aids.
Moreover, they had more than 6,000 arrows.
They also had several bottles of toxin mixture for soaking.
As for Xia’s team, they had achieved 90% progress with the trenches.
Only less than 10% of traps had been damaged as well.
They also had a few food reserves, which were enough to last all the beast-eared women for a week without the need to hunt.
Other than that, there were also many scattered resources that were enough to support the beast-eared tribe in a full-scale war with other tribes.
At night, Fu Rui personally cooked once again.
It wasn’t that the beast-eared females didn’t want to cook. Instead, after Fu Rui was able to make porcelain, he became pickier with food. However, the beast-eared females had never heard of many dishes, let alone cooked them.
Thus, he had no choice but to cook them himself.
Very quickly, he cooked two dishes and a soup one after another, and the fragrance spread into the depths of the forest.
In order to reward everyone for their hard work during this period, he made more food.
The people of the tribe sat around the fire as they ate their meat and soup happily.
“Li, I brought you something good… eh? What smells so good?”
The eagle girl descended from the sky and was stunned when she saw the three pots of meat beside the bonfire. Even the bamboo rat in her hands fell to the ground.
