Bai Di had just finished stewing the chicken when Huanhuan ran back angrily.

He quickly wiped his hands clean and walked over. “Who made you angry?”

Huanhuan said angrily, “Who else? It’s that bastard bird! He actually spread rumors everywhere that I’ve become his mate!”

But Bai Di said, “You’ve already given him the contract ring. Isn’t it your intention to be his mate?”

Speaking of this, Huanhuan was angry.

She told him about how Xue Ling had pretended to be dying and tricked her into giving him the ring.

Bai Di understood after hearing her story. “I was wondering how he was able to make you accept him so quickly. So that’s the truth.”

“He’s a big liar. He doesn’t tell the truth!”

Bai Di stroked her head. “Don’t be angry. The chicken is ready. Do you want to try it?”

As soon as she heard that there was food, Huanhuan immediately forgot her anger. Her eyes lit up as she said, “Sure!”

Bai Di’s chicken soup was so delicious that she almost bit her tongue.

Huanhuan smacked her lips and praised happily, “Your culinary skills are getting better and better!”

Bai Di wiped the soup from her mouth and smiled. “I’m glad you like it.”

Before long, Xue Ling returned.

Huanhuan said to Bai Di, “It’s getting late. I’ll go look for Big Goody and the others. They should come back for dinner.”

She walked out of the house without looking at Xue Ling.

Bai Di didn’t try to persuade her to stay either.

He gave Xue Ling a look that said, ‘You asked for it.’ Then, he turned around and walked into the kitchen to continue cooking dinner.

Xue Ling was tall and had long legs. He easily caught up to Huanhuan.

He took her hand. “What will it take for you to forgive me?”

“If you don’t think you’re at fault, what does it matter if I forgive you or not?!” Huanhuan shook off his hand and walked around him to continue walking.

“I like you. I’m trying my best to be your mate. What’s wrong with that?”

Huanhuan sneered. “You told me before that you liked someone else, but now you’re saying that you like me. Is there any truth to your words?”

Xue Ling asked instead of answering, “If I had told the truth from the start, you would have run away long ago, wouldn’t you?”

This guy was a liar, and now not only was he not admitting to his mistake, but he was even blaming her!

Huanhuan was even angrier. “Does that give you the right to lie to me?”

If it were any other time, Xue Ling would already be impatient. In his opinion, the other party was fussing over a trivial matter over and over again. Was there a need to keep harping on this?!

However, Shen Yan’s words still rang in his ears, which forced Xue Ling to calm down.

He tried to lower his tone. “I admit that I have a bad mouth. Sometimes, I do whatever it takes to get what I want. It has made you think I’m unreliable. It’s my fault that you feel this way. I’ll try to change it in the future.”

Huanhuan turned her head away, her eyes looking elsewhere. She didn’t speak.

Some passing beasts saw the two of them pulling each other and looked at them curiously.

Xue Ling ignored the gazes of the passersby around him and stared at Huanhuan’s face. “I’m not a good person, but at least I’m sincere to you. Otherwise, why would I risk my life to save you?”

Huanhuan’s heart softened when she remembered how he had rushed into the Sea of Illusions alone to save her.

Either way, he’d saved her life.

He had saved her life.

Seeing that her expression had softened, Xue Ling immediately struck while the iron was hot and continued.

“I didn’t save you because I wanted to use this favor to threaten you into submission. I just want you to give me a fair chance to compete on account of my selflessness.”

His tone was very sincere. Even though Huanhuan knew that this guy was a habitual liar, she couldn’t help but waver.

Xue Ling pulled back his collar, revealing the scars on his chest and shoulders.

They were all scars left behind by injuries he got in the territory of the demons. Most of them had healed, and only some light pink scars were left.

Even so, Huanhuan’s heart still ached.

Xue Ling said, “Even with my injuries, can’t I get another chance?”

The passersby around him were also moved by him. They couldn’t help but stop and speak up for Xue Ling.

“He went this far for you. He must be sincere. Give him a chance.”

“That’s right. He risked her life for you. Don’t you feel touched at all?”

“Give him a chance to try. If it doesn’t work, kick him out.”

Huanhuan’s mood was already a little unstable. When the surrounding crowd said this, she immediately became even more at a loss.

She looked at Xue Ling in front of her and asked softly, “When you said that you liked someone else, was that true?”

Everyone immediately looked at Xue Ling with questioning gazes.

“There’s someone else in your heart?”

Xue Ling quickly raised his hand and swore. “I lied to you. I promise there’s no one else but you.”

Huanhuan was skeptical. “You always lie. I don’t know if what you’re saying this time is true or not, but since you risked your life to save me previously, I’ll choose to believe you again.”

Huanhuan immediately added, “But don’t lie to me again!”

“I promise I won’t lie to you anymore.”

Huanhuan turned to leave. “I’m going to look for Big Goody and the others. You can go back first.”

Xue Ling leaned over and took her hand. “I’ll go with you.”

Huanhuan didn’t shake his hand off this time. She glanced at his chest. “Tidy up your clothing first.”

Xue Ling immediately pulled his collar closer and smiled. “I’ll only show you my body. No one else.”

Huanhuan: “…”

She had never seen such a shameless person.

When the passersby saw that the couple had reconciled and there was no more drama to watch, they went home in groups.

Huanhuan found the wolf cubs at the field and asked them to go home for dinner.

Xue Ling looked at the furry wolf cubs and suddenly whispered into Huanhuan’s ear, “When will you give birth to my children?”

Huanhuan replied calmly, “You’re still under probation. Instead of thinking about having children, why don’t you think about how to get through the probation period smoothly?”

Xue Ling squeezed her small hand.

Although he was still under probation period, at least she wasn’t pushing him away now.

This was a big step forward.

It seemed that Shen Yan was right. When facing a female, he couldn’t just force himself. He had to learn to retreat in order to advance.

Not long after Huanhuan and Xue Ling returned home with the wolf cubs, Shuang Yun and Sang Ye returned.

Huanhuan was still thinking about how to explain her complicated relationship with Xue Ling. Unexpectedly, Shuang Yun and Sang Ye seemed to have automatically accepted Xue Ling into their family.
