Chapter 806: Just Say The Word And I Will Do It For You
Gu Mengmeng relied on Elvis, and he knew that all along.
But her current clingy behavior was rather unusual.
For the first time ever, she wanted Lea to feed her during mealtime. Meanwhile, her little hands remained circled around Elvis’ neck, unwilling to let go for even a second.
Elvis thought it might be because Peter’s story had upset her?
Frowning, he wiped her mouth which was dirty from eating. “You saw the female and listened to their story. Let’s go back. The children are waiting for us.”
Elvis’ heart ached even if Gu Mengmeng suffered the slightest discomfort. He could not forgive Peter for dredging up those unhappy matters from the past to make Gu Mengmeng feel depressed. He must settle this score with him sooner or later. But rather than venting his own frustrations, it was more important to bring Gu Mengmeng out of this gloomy and rundown place. He cannot let her continue to be so affected.
Gu Mengmeng shook her head and looked up at Elvis. She pressed her lips into a firm line. Worries filled her eyes but she refused to speak.
Her expression made Elvis feel heartache and frustration. He looked at Lea, signaling with his eyes for him to think of a solution.
But Lea just shrugged. He had a “she’s in your arms now and doesn’t even want to look at me. What can I do?” face. He took the plates and pots for washing, obviously distancing himself from the issue.
Elvis frowned. He was willing to do anything for Gu Mengmeng. He could do anything as long as it was good for her.
However… he did not know how to handle her emotional state as well as Lea.
She was refusing to talk and he was at a loss.
“Xiao Meng…” Elvis sighed. He stroked her little head. “What are you thinking about? Tell me, please?”
Gu Mengmeng kept lips tightly pursed and refused to speak. She just held onto Elvis’ neck and burrowed her face into the crook of his neck, breathing warm air onto his skin.
Elvis really had no idea how to handle Gu Mengmeng.
He liked her being coquettish and clingy, and wished for her to always stick to him like that, never parting from him even an inch.
But it must be on the condition of her being happy.
Her troubled expression gripped his heart.
He had already mentioned the wolf pups, but she still refused to return to Saint Nazaire…
Who knew what potion that female gave her just now in the cave. Causing her to behave like this in such a short while.
He still preferred her rowdy, trouble-making self.
Gently holding Gu Mengmeng’s head, he said in a voice laced with doting and exasperation, “What can I do to make you happy again? Just say the word and I will do it for you. Alright?”
Gu Mengmeng thought about it before lifting her head. She looked doubtfully at Elvis. “I want to save Natalie. Will you help me?”
“Save her?” Elvis was astonished. Although related by blood, she was just a stranger to Elvis. “Although she is a complete female, she is already very old. Even if we bring her back to our tribe, no one will be willing to be her partner… nevertheless, if you wish to save her, then we will do so. Our tribe is so big, we can afford to feed one female. However, she is very weak now—you cannot cry if she still ends up dying.”
