“Bi Xia had ever caught it alive before, but what a pity it died after a few days because it stopped eating and drinking!”
“I’ve heard that its pelt is warm and comfortable, so if you wear it in the winter, you won’t have to wear another fur coat. If it is used to make a fur collar, it’ll definitely be gorgeous and impressive!”
“Yes yes, I wonder who will be …
