TL: Moonlit

Shu Shuishui made an effort to smile (^-^) and said, “You’re not cute at all.”

Yu Jin didn’t care.
“Being cute or not doesn’t matter for a man.”

Shu Shuishui (^-^), pointing a claw, said, “You’re going to lose your fur like this.”

Yu Jin replied, “Impossible! My fur has always been fine.”

Shu Shuishui extended a paw.
“I plucked it!”

Yu Jin sighed, “You win.”

Yu Jin put down the pen, and Shu Shuishui continued to roam around the map with the pen as he wished.
Shu Shuishui was quite excited about the feng shui treasure land he had discovered.
After all, winter had arrived, and would hibernation be far behind?

He roughly calculated the amount of spirit stones needed to transform the protective array.
If it covered the entire hill and valley, it would require about seventy-two top-grade spirit stones or seven thousand two hundred high-grade spirit stones.
Shu Shuishui carefully counted the spirit stones in his spiritual storage space.
Since the space was limited, he only stored top-grade spirit stones there, with the only difference being their size.

As for the high-grade spirit stones, they were mostly stored in his storage ring on Earth.
Shu Shuishui’s speed of walking with the pen became slower and slower until he finally plopped down on his bottom, his little head hanging low and his two small ears becoming droopy.
In the puzzled gaze of Gu Langu, it took a while before Shu Shuishui sighed, “I’m so poor.”

Yu Jin couldn’t help but burst into laughter again.
It was the first time he had heard a dormouse lamenting about being poor.
Although the little dormouse seemed sad, the scene was quite comical.

Shu Shuishui sat motionless, holding the pen, for a while, and then unconsciously brought his little head close to the pen shaft, preparing to gnaw on it.
Instead of the expected resistance on his teeth, he felt something soft.
Shu Shuishui focused his attention and realized that Gu Langu’s finger had unknowingly extended toward him.

Gu Langu took the pen from Shu Shuishui’s paw.
“These pens are made of relatively hard material.
If you want to grind your teeth, use my hand instead.” He thought for a moment and added, “It’s better for your teeth.”

Shu Shuishui “…”

Shu Shuishui felt that he wasn’t the kind of owner who would let his pet gnaw on his teeth, so he declined Gu Lan Gu’s proposal and instead seriously pondered the issue of spirit stones.
Top-grade spirit stones were hard to come by, and the remaining ones in his spiritual storage space were given by Shu Bao, after all, spirit stones couldn’t be produced on Earth with its spiritual power.
For a treasure-hunting dormouse like Shu Bao, top-grade spirit stones were not considered rare, so he never lacked them, although he usually used them for growing vegetables.

According to what Shu Bao had said, spirit stones were mainly produced in higher realms.
Shu Bao’s parents came from a cultivation continent called Huan Chen.
Shu Bao was a second-generation cultivator, which is why he had abundant cultivation resources.
So the few top-grade spirit stones left in Shu Shuishui’s spiritual storage space were non-renewable resources.

Shu Shuishui clearly wasn’t the type to sit and wait for death, unless he was in hibernation.
In that case, the only possible substitute for spirit stones would be energy stones.
Although they contained chaotic energy, it couldn’t be denied that the concentration of energy was no weaker than that of top-grade spirit stones.

So, in the gaze of Yu Jin and the others, the initially dejected little mouse suddenly stood up from the map and happily jumped off the table with a thud.

“I’ll go back to my room first, don’t think about me.” The little dormouse scurried out of the meeting room without looking back, leaving Gu Langu, who was still holding his hand, behind.

Gu Langu retracted his hand without much expression, and he glanced down at the faint tooth mark on his index finger.

Next to him, Yu Jin also noticed Gu Langu’s action and the small tooth mark.
“Rub it a bit, and it should disappear soon.”

Gu Langu looked at Yu Jin with a glance.

Yu Jin shivered and inexplicably felt the dissatisfaction in Gu Langu’s eyes.

Gu Langu asked, “Do we have modeling glue?”

“Yes!” Although he didn’t know how he stepped into a minefield, Yu Jin, driven by a strong will to survive, immediately sought remedial measures and quickly found a bag of modeling glue.

The so-called modeling glue was actually a semi-liquid gel that became highly plastic after being exposed to air and quickly hardened to an extremely hard state.
It was often used to temporarily replace damaged parts.

Today, Yu Jin and Nan Ge discovered another function of modeling glue: making tooth molds.

That’s right, the once wise and valiant war god, who never wasted a single second on meaningless things, poured the modeling glue on the shallow tooth mark on his finger.
Soon, the modeling glue took shape, and two teeth models that were identical to Shu Shuishui’s incisors were created.

Gu Langu satisfactorily put away the molded teeth.

Nan Ge and Yu Jin: “…” So, was Gu Langu dissatisfied just now because the tooth mark was about to disappear? Does it mean that Shu Shuishui feels regretful for not being able to grind his teeth on his finger?

Nan Ge and Yu Jin couldn’t understand Gu Langu’s behavior.
They even wondered if Gu Langu experienced some sort of confusion during the recovery of emotions and desires, leading to a series of abnormal actions.

However, Gu Langu was very clear-minded.
Every part of his body was created later, except for his brain.
So, he was well aware that every action he took was in accordance with his own will.

Upstairs, Shu Shuishui returned to the bedroom without knowing that his teeth had been collected by someone.
After all, he didn’t have any gold teeth or anything.
Shu Shuishui took out the energy stone he had obtained earlier by exchanging it with a hazelnut from the first drawer of the bedside table.

According to Nan Ge’s words, this energy stone was of the highest quality, which meant it belonged to the supreme class.
However, the energy contained within it was like the chaos before the creation of heaven and earth, with unclear differentiation and the mingling of all types of energy.

On the other hand, the supreme spirit stone in Shu Shuishui’s spiritual mansion was pure and genuine spiritual power.
It was transparent, while the energy stone was a chaotic black satin.
In terms of form and color, they were complete extremes.

If Shu Shuishui wanted to use the energy stone as a substitute for the spirit stone, he had to find a way to distinguish the chaotic energy within it and refine it into the purest spiritual power.
It seemed that Gu Langu had also mentioned a concept similar to quantum sorting, where humans separated the energy within the energy stone in order to maximize its utilization.

This might sound simple, but the process was extremely complex.
Furthermore, Shu Shuishui couldn’t really purify it through technological means.
It can be imagined that if technology could successfully purify the energy stone into a supreme spirit stone, cultivators would have appeared in this world long ago.
However, based on the available information, this world did not have the concept of cultivation, indicating that the method of obtaining spirit stones through technological purification was not feasible.

Sitting on the bedside table, Shu Shuishui held the energy stone in his arms and kept examining it.
Due to the touch of his little paws, ripples of energy waves continuously rippled across the surface of the energy stone, and the overflowing energy particles kept changing, resembling a magnificent aurora.
Soon, Shu Shuishui was enveloped in it.

After carefully feeling it, Shu Shuishui sat cross-legged, trying to distinguish the energy contained within.
Wood, fire, earth, metal, and water were self-explanatory, and there were also two extremely concentrated energies—one dark and one clear.
The clear one was undoubtedly spiritual power, while the dark one seemed to be chaotic energy, which was the main reason for the mixture of these various energies.

On the bedside table, within the splendid and gentle flowing aurora, the little dormouse sat earnestly, tapping and knocking on the energy stone in his arms, occasionally attempting to explore it using spiritual power.

Shu Shuishui took out the custom-made notebook and pen from his spiritual storage, as well as the glasses, and lay them on the bedside table.
He started writing down various methods to modify the energy stone in a systematic manner.
Shu Shuishui was such a diligent mouse.
He would list and try every possible option he could think of, crossing out the unsuccessful ones and moving on to the next.
This was Shu Shuishui’s persistence—life could present difficulties, but they must be approached in an orderly manner.

It was precisely because of Shu Shuishui’s approach to life that he never found it boring.
After all, even during hibernation, Shu Shuishui would plan each day’s hibernation carefully.
Shu Bao had once seen Shu Shuishui’s hibernation plan, which was written neatly in a small notebook:

Day 1 of hibernation: Hibernate.

Day 2 of hibernation: Hibernate.

Day 3 of hibernation: Hibernate.

Day 273 of hibernation: Hibernate.
(Note: May starve to death.)

Day 274 of hibernation: Hibernate.
(Note: Wild boars should be out foraging, may be eaten.)

Day 275 of hibernation: Hibernate.
(Note: If still alive, time to wake up.)

Day 276 of hibernation: Hibernate.
(Note: Can struggle a bit, wake up tomorrow.)

Day 277 of hibernation: Wake up.
(Note: Hurry and prepare food and supplies, prepare for hibernation three months later.)

After that, Shu Bao never saw Shu Shuishui’s hibernation notebook again because Shu Bao said it was tiring to read.

Scratching his head, Shu Shuishui carefully reviewed his hibernation plan, not finding anything tiring about it.
So, he happily continued writing his year after year of hibernation plans.

As Shu Shuishui leaned on the bedside table, vigorously writing, he paused for a moment and tapped his chubby cheek with the pen, contemplating whether he should prioritize this year’s hibernation plan.
After all, life must always be organized and filled with a sense of ceremony.
