After giving up the plan to make use of Burke to lure Cole out, the tribe had also more or less recovered and there was no need for them to continue recuperating at the same spot.
Auretin and Ian made the necessary arrangements and the next morning, everyone got ready to set off towards Saint Nazaire at Gu Mengmengs command.
Burke had been inviting Gu Mengmeng every morning to come along with him for the hunting expeditions of Kanwu and his brothers. However, Gu Mengmeng never agreed again. She replied with a "You guys go ahead, I am not going." every single time, not even bothering to make up an excuse.
Nevertheless, Burke persisted in appearing before Gu Mengmeng every morning to inform her of where Kanwu and his brothers would be training that day, what type of wild animals would they encounter, as well as what kind, brave performance her children might put up.
At the start, Gu Mengmeng steadfastly rejected.
However, she was rather tempted by the progress of her children.
But whenever she was nearly convinced by Burke and wanted to tag along, Lea would suddenly scurry over and pull her into his arms before baring his teeth at Burke. Sometimes, he would even attack Burke with a paw or a vicious swipe of his tail.
Burke behaved like a piece of wood. He did not retaliate or become angry at the blows.
Heh, Gu Mengmeng knew that this was an ordeal that all males must undergo when pursuing a female. Before getting the permission of the female to become part of the family, single males in the territory of a female would naturally be treated as an invader.
There were only three outcomes to this situation: The suitor was so powerful that the original partner had no choice but to cede; the original partner was so powerful that he would chase after the suitor and kill him; or the female was touched by the suitor and accepted him as a partner.
Only the above three scenarios would end the conflict.
Burke and Lea were both third-level beasts. He was not in peak condition and may not be Leas match, but he would not be an easy fight. Nevertheless, he was content to stand there and absorb the beatings. Burke was putting up a subservient front so that they would all get along when they became one big happy family one day.
Gu Mengmeng sighed. It looked like this Burke had truly fallen for her.
Realizing that, Gu Mengmeng started avoiding Burke when he came to invite her, so as to prevent the insanely jealous Lea from accidentally killing Burke. She pestered Lea to hold her while having Elvis go reject Burkes invitation.
A team with 18 females moved at a snails pace.
They finally reached somewhere near Saint Nazaire five days later.
"Settle down and take a rest." Elvis raised his hand as a signal, while still carrying Gu Mengmeng.
A simple sentence uttered from his lips was like a decree that could not be defied. Everyone had no choice but to comply.
Burke came over once again. This was the second time today he had sought out Gu Mengmeng.
"At this rate, we should be able to reach Saint Nazaire by night time." Burke stood about five paces away from Gu Mengmeng. He gazed at her with profound eyes. "After reaching Saint Nazaire, I need to return to Sauder to continue taking care of my tribe. That is why today will be the last time Kanwu and the rest will be training under me we will be carrying out a coordinated hunt and the prey might be a tiger or horned animal. It will be a major challenge for the children. Do you want to come along?"
