The big mussel cheered and quickly placed a jar of liquor in front of itself. The perfect leisure for a freeman was to drink a big bowl of alcohol while eating a big piece of meat. Finally, Gu Xijiu also started to drink. Though it was dangerous in the dark forest, she would be safe with the three beasts beside her even if she was drunk.
The big mussel admired its owner today. Gu Xijiu not only drank a lot but also ate a lot. She finished an entire portion of lamb shank, a pair of chicken wings as well as a steak and was now biting on a piece of lamb chop while drinking a jar of liquor. The big mussel wondered where all the food was going since her body was so tiny.
After the big mussel had drunk several bowls of liquor, it started feeling tipsy. It asked its master, "Master, aren't you full yet?"
Gu Xijiu was stunned for a moment. She suddenly realized that she was so full and felt uncomfortable. Her chest was somewhat painful, and she was a bit dizzy too. She was so full to the extent that she wanted to cry!
Her eyes were getting more red as the night continued. She tried blinking her eyes to stop herself from crying, but her tears were already starting to flow down. Suddenly, she vomited. She vomited out all of the food while crying simultaneously. When she finally stopped vomiting, she felt so weak that she had to sit on the floor. All of a sudden, she felt sleepy.
Though the mussel was big, it was not a good drinker. It was starting to feel drunk after only having one jar of liquor. However, it still cared about its master. When it saw that Gu Xijiu was about to sleep on the ground, it quickly opened its shell and went over to her. "Master, you can lean on my shell."
Gu Xijiu leaned on its shell, but she could barely sit properly. Her body was unstable, and she fell inside the big mussel's shell! Though the shell of the big mussel was not very spacious, it was almost the size of a small room and was able to accommodate one person comfortably. The inside of the shell was quite soft, and so Gu Xijiu felt like she was lying on a mattress while she was inside. Hence, she decided to sleep there.
Unfortunately, the big mussels felt uncomfortable. Even though it had stored some other animals inside its shell before, they were dead animals. It could save them wherever it wanted. However, Gu Xijiu was a living human. When she stretched her body and moved inside its shell, it triggered the desire of the big mussel to eat. The baby inside the big mussel tried pushing Gu Xijiu out from the shell, but it failed.
"Don't… Why… I don't want to be a substitute… I am suffering…" She muttered with a choked voice. "I am hurt…" She frowned and her eyes were closed tightly. There were tears at the corner of her eyes.
The big mussels felt sad. It leaned over and wanted to hold Gu Xijiu's hand to comfort her. However, it was drunk at the moment. When it stretched out its hands, it also involuntarily opened its mouth. It had swallowed a lot of people before. It would be a disaster if it consumed Gu Xijiu!
Wind Caller was still the most reliable one during times of crisis. It quickly rushed over to block the mouth of big mussel with its horn and tried making a noise to warn the big mussel.
Lu Wu also rushed over to Wind Caller. At first, it had intended to sleep inside Gu Xijiu's arm. However, when it saw the huge mouth of the big mussel, it sensed that something was wrong and so it quickly waved its tail and slapped the big mussel's mouth.
