After interacting with the polar bear cub, Oddis lowered his head again and continued to eat. His clean and smooth appearance made Qiao Qixi feel safe.

  From hunting to eating, they have been here for several hours.

  At a distance, a male polar bear, also foraging for food, wandered over.

  It was said before that they would try to avoid other polar bears on the way, but now it was the other side that was approaching them and with their stomachs still not full, there was no way Oddis would leave behind the food.

  As summer approaches and the glaciers melt, polar bears have to retreat inland and gather by the sea, where they concentrate on locations where they can catch food and wander around all day looking for it.

  This is a suitable location for catching beluga whales and it is not surprising that other polar bears are drawn to the area.

  This male polar bear probes the shore, surveying a pair of small and large bears feeding on the shore and perhaps decided it was not worth the effort.

  Given the size of Oddis, and the aura of seemingly not to be messed with, can also make the situation fraught with danger.

  So it’s better to work hard on your own.

  Qiao Qixi watched the other side with some curiosity, eyes wide open, like a small child who can’t concentrate on eating properly.

  It was the second time he saw another polar bear. He only felt that this polar bear was not as big and tall as Oddis or as white as Oddis’ fur.  

  Needless to say, even Oddis looks more handsome and lovely compared to the other’s physique.

  Oddis makes a special sound, which is learned from Qiao Qixi who always makes all kinds of strange sounds to communicate with him.

  So sometimes, Oddis, who is surprisingly good at learning, also uses the familiar tones of the cub to urge the other to eat.

  Seeing that Oddis did not care about the other polar bear at all, Qiao Qixi also shifted his eyes and stopped being curious.

  Fortunately, the other polar bear is very sensible and seems to have decided to hunt for himself and dive into the sea to catch a beluga whale.

  From the standpoint of polar bears, Qiao Qixi still hopes that it can hunt successfully.

  Within a short time, Oddis led him away.

  Before leaving, Qiao Qixi cleaned his little bucket and put it on his head.

  The Arctic Ocean will have relatively less marine litter than other oceans, but Qiao Qixi, who often wanders the shore, still spots them from time to time.

  There were some bottles and jars, as well as bikinis… Er, there was also a time when Oddis took back a small colorful ball for him.

  Maybe it’s because Oddis thought that he would like these things.

  Although Qiao Qixi has already passed the age of playing with small balls but receiving such a gift, he still felt very surprised.

  Never did he expect Oddis, who was completely born and raised in the wild, to pick up toys for him.

  Qiao Qixi thought this habit was only available to polar bears that grew up in zoos. After all, wild polar bears don’t have the concept of toys in the first place.

  And since, survival alone takes up most of their energy.

  Of course, it’s also impractical for them to take toys on the road with them when they are constantly on the move and living in different places every day. 

  Qiao Qixi can only give up the small colorful ball and throw it back into the water so that the garbage boat that catches garbage on the ocean can retrieve it as it floats on the water.

  After a full meal, Oddis took Qiao Qixi and made his way north along the coastline.

  The weather here is a little slower to heat up and the snow and ice have not completely melted yet, large areas of fluffy white snow still cover the ground which is no different from winter but with no more snow falling.

  The mother bear, which has been in the process of breeding since early spring, first came out to feed with her two-month-old cubs.

  At this point the polar bear cubs are like little puppies, so white and lively and cute.

  They play next to their mother, pounce on each other, and then stop to look around from time to time. It’s a natural instinct for polar bears to be alert and keen at all times.

  It has been there since childhood.

  Meanwhile, the mother bear has picked up the scent of an unknown male polar bear, which makes her very wary and uneasy.

  That is, until she saw that the adult male polar bear was followed by a polar bear cub who was clearly not yet an adult.

  A large and a small pair passed nearby, like a mother with a child, so the mother bear’s eyes got confused, a little lost in the situation.

  What’s going on here?

  Could it be that there is something wrong with my sense of smell……?

  The likelihood of conflict between a mother bear with cubs meeting another mother bear is generally minimal.

  For them, nothing is more important than the safety and security of themselves and their cubs.

  The mother bear found that the other party was also a…bear with cub, and her vigilance dropped steeply by a large margin.

  On this side, Qiao Qixi also saw the mother bear with cubs. This was the first time he saw a female polar bear whose figure would indeed be a little more petite than the male polar bear.

  The face also looks nice, not as rough as the male polar bears.

  “Wait a minute!” Qiao Qixi was suddenly shocked!

  “Something’s wrong with me?”

  Has he been a polar bear for too long?

  How could he think that female polar bears are attractive?

  But soon, Qiao Qixi’s attention was drawn to the two cute polar bear cubs.

  So cute and adorable!

  If he himself has white fur that is 90% new, then the polar bear cubs that were just born two months ago looks only 10% new.

  The fur on his body is white, almost as white as snow.

  Qiao Qixi believes that when the darn summer comes, those 2 cubs and the mother would be completely covered with dirt if they have good luck, if not…

  …even the odds of surviving are slim.

  With a sigh in his heart, Qiao Qixi shook off his head thinking about all those things and is now wondering if he would be chased by the mother bear if he forced himself to go over and play with the cubs.

  Definitely…even if he is also a cub

  ”Ao ao… Awooo……” Qiao Qixi followed Oddis and once again made a strange sound, causing Oddis to be confused.

  After all, other polar bears don’t have as many problems as he does.

  Perhaps Oddis thought Qiao Qixi was afraid of the nearby sow bear, so he simply walked ahead of Qiao Qixi and made a low voice full of soothing intentions.

  For a huge male polar bear, pressing his vocal cords to make this low, slow sound is considered very gentle and accommodating.

  If Oddis were to find out that he wanted to go over and rub the mother bear’s cubs, would Oddis beat him up and kick him to the curb?

  No, such a complex and contrary to instinct is something that Oddis is not destined to know and yet this big guy comforts him like an emotionally disturbed bear.

  The language barrier between them leaves Qiao Qixi with no way to express that he just feels uncomfortable because he can’t touch other polar bear cubs.

  But this kind of emotion, come and go quickly. After all, the number of polar bears is quite small and missing it once is nothing, there is no need to put yourself at risk.

  The thick snow and the rare sight of evergreen pine leaf forest rendered Qiao Qixi speechless.

  It looks like Christmas trees in winter. It would be more like it if there were stars and presents hanging on the tree.

  Tree by tree, dotted among the snow, is a romantic and beautiful landscape for humans, and a natural shelter for animals.

  No wonder there are mother bears with cubs digging holes to live in here.

  Possibly, the mother bear dug the hole she used to give birth in the early spring of this year, and it was only in the summer, when the cubs were growing up healthy and active, that the mother bear made her first appearance with her babies.

  Odysseus liked the snow, and having filled their stomachs, they lay down on a patch of snow away from the mother bear.  

  Looking like he wants to take a lunch break.

  On the contrary, the cool weather makes it less likely for Qiao Qixi to get sleepy.

  He put down the small yellow bucket and fumbled around on his own, but he did not have the courage to go far.

  There are wolves in the forest, even if he has this tonnage that seven wolves together can’t take him away, he can’t help but still be afraid.

  He heard somewhere that there would be mountain treasures under the snow-covered trees so Qiao Qixi, who was idle and juiced up, arched his big butt and used his bear claws to pick apart the snow under the trees for nothing.

  He only got his paws dirty.

   Qiao Qixi cleaned his paws and ran back to Oddis. Suddenly, he quickened his pace and pounced on Oddis from afar.

  “Why did I do that, you ask? Well, I hope that Oddis, who was taking a nap, would get up and accompany me to practice hunting skills.”  

  Oddis did not even lift his eyelids, just straight out stretched his paws to gather the polar bear cub into his arms, suppressing him with his handsome big head.

  At this point, his body is covered with the words: “Bear child, go to sleep or else, Lao Zi will whip you.”

  Qiao Qixi does not want to sleep, and only blame Oddis’s arms were too warm and totally different from the temperature outside.

  This comfortable warmth is hard for him to resist.

  Before falling into dreamland, Qiao Qixi suddenly thought of a problem. Since Oddis is so afraid of heat, this time cuddling himself should be even hotter, right?

  So why cuddle up and sleep?

  Why can’t humans understand the heart of a bear?

  Wait, can we call this sleeping together?

  But Qiao Qixi fell asleep before he could think straight.  

  In the snowy coniferous forest, there are real wolves where you can hear from time to time, howling in the distance.  

  That’s the Arctic wolf, a hardy and tough animal.

  After enduring up to six months of darkness, the few mammals that could live in this inhospitable land came out frequently to feed.

  Unlike polar bears, they have the ability to go up and down the mountain while having no natural enemies that threaten their lives.

  Arctic wolves, which can only live on land, have even tougher survival conditions for they are not strong and fast enough either.

  Qiao Qixi slept a little restlessly amidst several wolf howls.

  It sounded as if there was a conflict nearby.

  He tried to poke his head out to take a look, but Oddis had him surrounded and seemed to be calming him down so he could go back to sleep.

  But how can Qiao Qixi sleep? It’s too boring to be among the boring bears, and it’s rare to have a wolf to get things going, so he wants to see what’s going on.

  Having a small bear whose size can no longer be called a cub arched around in his arms caused Oddis to have no peace of mind and sleep.

  He lifted one eyelid, a skill unique to polar bears, and guessed Qiao Qixi’s thoughts.

  Getting crazy?

  This is something that Oddis has only recently become aware of. Since he met Qiao Qixi, a polar bear that doesn’t follow the usual rules, it has stimulated him to develop the habit of guessing.

  Occasionally Oddis can guess what Qiao Qixi wants to do, but will not spoil Qiao Qixi, depending on his mood and will not always obey.

  Now, for example, when a pack of wolves hunts in the forest and make noises that disturbs this bear’s clear dream.

  Other polar bear cubs would hide cautiously, while Oddis’s picked-up cub was full of interest in the wolves.

  The same way, the other side likes to eat oysters that taste strange.

  Qiao Qixi: ???

  Qiao Qixi: No, it’s not the same!

  Oddis bites the back of the cub’s neck skin and pulls him back in the opposite direction.

  Qiao Qixi: Wait! My yellow…

  He took his own small yellow bucket in his mouth as Oddis whisked him away.

  His nap was disturbed and Oddis, who hadn’t slept enough, was covered with a slight depression.

  If not for his dislike of wolves—which are not good to eat, have little meat that needs lots of work and taste average, yes, he would have eaten them.

  Quite vindictive Oddis, will probably go over and f*ck over the Arctic wolves who are making so much noise in the woods.

  Eh? Are we going to see the action?

  Qiao Qixi happily followed Oddis with what is called “excitement” and “anticipation”. 

  Only later did he learn that Oddis was not taking him to see the action, but to hunt.

  Damn it! Qiao Qixi thought to himself. The life in the North Pole is nothing but eating or ways of finding something to eat!


The author has something to say

Wait until summer and Qiao Qiao will say, “AwOooohhh! I’m starving! Food! Please give me something eat!”

Mei has something to say

Imagine seeing a polar bear cub in person—you’ll definitely want to touch it, right? I mean just imagine how cute they are!
