Chapter 43: First time in his life

On the way back to the campsite, Ren Xiaosu kept thinking about what kinds of changes the current wilderness had gone through.
Why were the wild animals evolving, yet there didnt seem to be any changes in humans?

No, there were some changes!
For example, there was Zhang Baogen, who had demonstrated his superpower to him. Or Yan Liuyuan and himself? Werent they all different from before?
When Ren Xiaosu returned to the campsite, the band and the soldiers were eating porridge and canned food.
When everyone saw the fish that Ren Xiaosu was holding, they were stunned. In the afternoon, they had thought they would see Ren Xiaosu make a fool of himself. This was because Ren Xiaosu was only wearing a loose jacket, and they knew at a glance that he had not brought along any dried food with him.
So when Liu Bu told Ren Xiaosu to handle his meals by himself, everyone gloated at him. They were all quite annoyed with Ren Xiaosu, this refugee kid who constantly gave them an inexplicable feeling of unease. However, they could not tell what it was that made them feel so.
But now, while they had to make do with canned luncheon meat in the wilderness, the smell of Ren Xiaosus roasted fish drifted over.
Ren Xiaosu had brought along a metal cup, a bone knife, and a box of matches with him for this journey. These necessities were part of his survival kit whenever he went into the wilderness. Of course, he couldve left the matches behind since he knew other techniques for starting a fire. But if he could save some trouble by bringing matches along with him, why would he want to make it more difficult for himself? The matchbox didnt take up a lot of space anyway.

Liu Bu wrinkled his nose when he smelled the roasted fish. "Hur hur, no big deal, its only a fish."
All of a sudden, Ren Xiaosu heard the voice from the palace say, "Quest: Good things should be shared with others."
Ren Xiaosu was stunned for some time. He picked up the branch that the fish was skewered on and walked to Liu Bu.
Liu Bus eyes lit up as he said in a reserved tone, "What, are you going to invite us to eat the fish? Well, I guess we can"
"What are you thinking?" Ren Xiaosu said, "I was only showing it to you to share my happiness."
Liu Bu was confused.
"Quest complete. Awarded 1.0 Dexterity."
Alright! Ren Xiaosu was overjoyed. There were many ways of sharing after all!

Liu Bu flew into a rage from shame. "Ren Xiaosu, do you really think that I would have any of your fish?"
Ren Xiaosu looked at the fish that was about half a meter long and felt that a person would not be able to finish this on their own. So he looked at Liu Bu and said, "Ill trade half of the fish for three bottles of water."
Liu Bu said without hesitation, "Deal!"
Ren Xiaosu wanted to trade his food for some water because it was really troublesome for him to find water. Initially, he had planned to go to the river to get his water but gave up on the idea after being frightened by what he saw there. He could also look for pine needles as his water source, but it would be too slow to squeeze the water out of them bit by bit. So he might as well make it more convenient for himself by using something that he did not require in exchange for some water from the other party.

With three bottles of water, he could drink one bottle tonight and leave the other two bottles for the journey.
"Come, come, everyone, come and have some fish." Liu Bu took out a pot they had brought along and laid half of the fish that Ren Xiaosu had given to them in it. But what Liu Bu had not expected was that the group of soldiers had already distributed the fish among themselves before Luo Xinyu, Yang Xiaojin, and he could even get to eat it!
"Um..." Liu Bu looked at Luo Xinyu in embarrassment. He could never have expected the soldiers to be such selfish people!
At this moment, Ren Xiaosu was sitting alone beside his personal fire pit while the others congregated around the larger campfire. Both sides drew a distinct line between themselves as though they were people from two different worlds.
Suddenly, Yang Xiaojin got up and went over to sit down across from Ren Xiaosu. She calmly said, "Fish."
Ren Xiaosu was so surprised to find her tone unusually calm that he could not come up with a reason to reject her.
The light of the campfire was flickering against the figure of the girl. Ren Xiaosu started wondering if the girls from the stronghold were all as beautiful like her. But, lady, can you move the gun away from me first? You have Perfect Firearms Proficiency and youre pointing a gun at me, so I cant help but feel a tad nervous!
Ren Xiaosu had never robbed anyone before, but he hadnt been robbed before either. This was the first time hed experiencing something like this in his life!
"Ill let you have two bites, just two bites!" Ren Xiaosu said firmly.
