Chapter 24: Using the Boston Ivy as Ropes to Build a Hammock

Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios

As the number of Bell’s fans increased, the screen was covered in comments.

Among the contestants, Bell was already one of the few who received the most attention.

With Bell’s age and his professional skills, some lurkers who entered his stream for the first time were converted into his fans.

Bell’s reputation was also gradually building.

At this moment, Bell, who had chosen his shelter, began to search for materials.

“We’re building a hammock. It’s actually very simple, and can only provide us with some stability when we rest at night.”

“At least with such a hammock, we don’t have to worry about being attacked by wild boars in the middle of the night like yesterday.”

Bell yawned as he spoke.

Because he had been tussling with the wild boar for the entire night, Bell had not gotten much rest.

“I’m already a little sleepy, but I can’t rest right now. On one hand, it’s because of the shelter. On the other hand, we have to dry our clothes first.”

“Sleeping with damp clothes is the easiest way to fall sick.”

Bell explained while moving.

Seeing how exhausted Bell was, many people expressed their heartache in the comments.

“Alright, let’s not talk about this. Let’s choose the materials to build the hammock first.”

“Rope is naturally a very important part of a hammock.”

“In the wilderness, ropes are an important tool second only to knives.”

“Many times, it can save your life.”

“Unfortunately, we don’t have ropes now, but we can find a replacement.”

Bell looked at a tree in the distance and walked over quickly.

“Haha, our luck is good. The toughness of the Boston ivy is enough to be a substitute for the rope.”

Bell even tugged twice. After weaving a few vines, the toughness of the vines could actually withstand Bell’s pull.

“If you see such plants when you are adventuring in the wild, I suggest that you collect some.”

“Heavens, the host is too hardworking.”

“I saw that many of the other contestants have already withdrawn from the competition.”

“Haha, those guys can’t even solve the food problem, unlike Bell.”

The audience praised Bell generously.

It was mainly because they could make a comparison.

Compared to the other contestants, Bell’s condition was too good.

He had food and water.

On the other hand, the other contestants were chewing on tree barks.

This was not a joke. It was literally chewing on tree barks, mainly because tree barks usually did not carry any poison.

These contestants were really afraid of being poisoned.

After a while, Bell had finished weaving the Boston ivy.

He then picked two thick wooden branches.

After trimming it with the dagger, he used the vines as a rope and tied it around the two sticks, making a stretcher-like shape.

Looking at Bell’s smooth operation, everyone was stunned.

“What just happened? Why did it finish fast? Why didn’t I see anything?”

“Haha, you’re not the only one. I was staring at the screen just now. When I lowered my head and drank some water, the stretcher was already prepared.”

Everyone was amazed at Bell’s speed.

Bell also got up and wiped the sweat off his head, feeling a little exhausted.

However, he still had a smile on his face as he looked at the stretcher he had created with satisfaction.

“Alright, it is finished.”

“What we need to do now is to fix it between the trees.”

Bell looked confident.

The female host, Bear, Ed, and Li Ziqi watched Bell’s live broadcast with attention.

“After experiencing the storm, contestant Bell’s condition doesn’t seem to have declined.”

The beautiful host looked at Bell and said.

Ed nodded.

“Not bad, our contestant is very smart. I noticed that he had been drinking fish soup to maintain his body temperature.”

“This is a very smart move.”

“It can greatly reduce the possibility of being sick.”

The people in the broadcast room were constantly analyzing Bell’s actions.

At the same time, they saw the stretcher that Bell had just made.

“Looks like this contestant is preparing to build a hammock.”

Bear saw through Bell’s intention.


The host was puzzled. She did not know what the two of them meant.

Ed smiled and explained.

“It seems like our contestant has learned from yesterday’s lesson. In order to avoid the attack of the beasts, he is preparing to build a temporary shelter in the middle of the trees.”

“The best thing about this hammock is that it can avoid the attacks of the beasts on the ground.”

“Moreover, since he doesn’t have to sleep on the ground, it will be easier to avoid a cold.”

After hearing their explanation, the host finally understood what Bell was doing.

But soon, a question troubled her.

“According to the two of you, this hammock should be placed at a very high position. If it’s too low, it won’t be of much use. But our contestant Bell isn’t tall because of his age. How would he tie it between the trees?”

When the beautiful host said this, Bear and Ed were stunned. They had also made hammocks, but this height problem did not affect them.


Because the two of them were adults, this problem could be resolved easily, but the seemingly small problem became a very difficult thing for Bell.

At the same time, everyone in Bell’s live-stream also noticed this problem.

Seeing Bell look up at the height of the tree, many people felt that it was a little cute.

“LMAO, it’s a pity that the host isn’t tall enough.”

Bell was helpless.

“No need to worry. It’s not a difficult task.”

Bell used the stretcher as a ladder and stepped onto a tree.

He skillfully hung it between the two trees.

Then, he covered the ground with thick fallen leaves.

“Alright, that’s enough. At least we don’t have to worry about falling and injuring ourselves when we sleep at night.”
