Being the Chieftain of a Moe Tribe - Chapter 17

Fu Rui followed the footprints all the way into the forest. Other than a small amount of blood, there were no traces of battle.
This caused Fu Rui to feel much more at ease.
From the looks of it, the brown bear might have been hit in the vitals by the stone spear, causing it to be unable to catch up to the two dog-eared girls.
This was a good thing as it meant that the dog-eared girls were still safe.
However, as Fu Rui went deeper, the sounds of even more large beasts came from the forest.
Many wild beasts in the forest were territorial. This meant that under the pursuit of the brown bear, the dog-eared girls might have accidentally intruded into the territory of other wild beasts.
He seemed to have heard the brown bear’s roar among all these sounds.
It seemed to be nearby!
Fu Rui frowned and quickened his pace.
However, when he passed through a dense patch of grass and saw the scene before him, his head hurt even more.
There were bloodstains everywhere on the field. The battle had destroyed the entire patch of grass, and a dying brown bear lay in the center of the field. Its body had been pierced by more than ten spears, making it obvious that it wouldn’t survive.
Beside the brown bear, the dog-eared twins had their hands and feet tied. They were lying on the ground with their backs against each other.
The culprits behind all of this were three robust porcupines that could walk upright!
Among these three porcupines, two were about the same size as the one Fu Rui had hunted.
However, the third one was a head taller than the other two.
Fu Rui hesitated as he did not have the confidence to deal with three porcupines at once.
However, the dog-eared girls were right in front of him. If he did not save them, it would probably become a knot in his heart that he could not get rid of for the rest of his life.
At this moment, the three porcupines were talking non-stop. After some communication, the two weaker porcupines actually left the place as if they were looking for something.
Fu Rui knew that his chance had come!
He quietly followed behind the two porcupines and charged from behind without them noticing.
Fu Rui’s strengthened body was shockingly fast. When the two porcupines heard the commotion and were about to turn around, one of their heads was pierced by the stone spear!
Its pupils gradually dilated. It was clearly unable to survive.
The other porcupine was shocked and angry. It kept producing strange sounds as it watched this creature that was much smaller than itself kill its companion so easily. Then, it took two steps back and turned to run.
Fu Rui also did not expect his strength to be so great. This instantaneous burst of strength could actually allow the coarse stone spear to pierce through one of the porcupine’s hardest parts. It was truly a pleasant surprise.
However, there was no way he could let the other porcupine that had escaped return to the large porcupine.
He simply picked up the stone axe from the dead porcupine’s hand and chased after the other porcupine, attempting to chop it down.
However, the porcupine knew that Fu Rui was very fast, so it was already prepared. It also used its stone axe to block him.
However, it never expected that Fu Rui’s strength was much greater than its own. That force was not something that it could withstand. The handle of its stone axe broke with a loud bang. Then, it felt a pain in its head and lost consciousness in the next second.
This was another instant kill!
Fu Rui looked at the collapsed porcupine whose head had been severed. He was also somewhat stunned.
“Am I that strong?”
No one responded to him. It was as if the corpses of the two porcupines on the ground were the best proof.
Next up was the large porcupine.
Fu Rui looked at the stone axe embedded in the porcupine’s skull and shook his head. He could not take it out.
The other porcupine had a stone spear stuck in its head, which was also very difficult to retrieve.
Without a weapon, it would be very difficult to kill a porcupine with thick skin even if he had the strength.
Thus, he had no choice but to use his brain.
The production methods for countless traps flashed across Fu Rui’s mind. Suddenly, he had an idea. “I got it!”
There was definitely no time for a time-consuming trap.
However, light and simple traps were extremely easy to create.
Fu Rui gathered materials in this forest and set up a trap that could create very loud noises. He tied the trap to the trigger. Then, he held onto the thin rope he always carried with him and walked for a distance. After that, he suddenly triggered the trap.
The loud noise startled a flock of birds.
Fu Rui believed that the large porcupine, who would be worried about its subordinates, would definitely come over to check.
Thus, he walked halfway around the forest to avoid running into the large porcupine. He returned to where the dog-eared girls were from the side.
As expected, the large porcupine had already been lured away by the sound, leaving behind the brown bear’s corpse and dog-eared girls.
The dog-eared girls had lost all hope. However, when they saw Fu Rui walking out of the woods, they couldn’t help but widen their eyes and shed tears of excitement.
“Shh, don’t make a sound.”
Fu Rui reminded them and untied their limbs. “Can you still walk?”
The two dog-eared girls nodded repeatedly.
“Alright, then let’s leave quickly. That porcupine will soon realize that something is wrong and return here.”
“What about this bear?” Li Li asked softly.
“Why are you still thinking about the bear at a time like this? It’s more important to stay alive.” As the older sister, Wei Wei knocked on Li Li’s head and then held her younger sister’s hand. “Village Chief, where are we going?”
Fu Rui pointed in a direction. “That way. Xia should have brought some people over.”
