Chapter 1015: Unt.i.tled
An’an had still felt a little uncomfortable during the last full month. She was now nearing the age of being able to speak and had developed a certain degree of rational thinking. The strange hallucinations that had appeared when the poison acted up had seriously affected her learning abilities. Before she was six months old, she would still cry out occasionally, but the older she got, the more she became cold and indifferent.
The joy on Bai Qingqing’s face turned fainter after seeing her daughter like this. She raised An’an to her face, nudging their noses together, and mumbled, “Mommy’s good baby.”
Winston jumped down from midair before the eagle beastman landed. He looked at the intimate scene between the mother and daughter, his gaze turning increasingly gentle, and his cold expression also turned soft as water.
He quickly walked up to Bai Qingqing’s side, hugging her pet.i.te figure with one hand, then stroked the female child’s soft and curly hair adoringly.
“Where are Parker and Curtis?” Winston asked softly.
Bai Qingqing looked toward the bedroom and said, “Curtis just shed skin and is sleeping in the bedroom. Parker is teaching the leopard cubs to be flying leopards.”
Winston said, “We’ve found traces of the scorpion tribe. I want to ask for their opinion.”
Bai Qingqing’s innocent puppy eyes instantly squinted slightly, radiating a hostile glow, and her chest clearly undulated.
Just at this moment, a snort from a leopard cub rang out from the backyard. At the same time, a “plop” sound of a body falling onto the ground also sounded. He had no idea which cub had fallen off the tree again.
Bai Qingqing’s heart ached when she heard that. She also knew that this was a skill that leopard beastmen needed to learn, so she could only turn her eyes away and console herself that the trees in the backyard weren’t tall. Under her strong insistence, gra.s.s piles were stacked at the bottom, so it shouldn’t hurt too much when they fall.
Now, she had finally found a reason to save the leopard cubs. She quickly said, “Let’s go and call Parker first.”
Winston nodded, taking An’an from her arms since she was now considered a bit of a burden for her. He carried An’an with one arm and took Bai Qingqing’s soft hand with the other.
Bai Qingqing tugged him and wanted to head to the backyard, but Winston hesitated in his footsteps, wondering if he should inform Muir. However, he heard steady footsteps coming from outside the door. He turned and saw that Muir had taken the initiative to come.
Bai Qingqing also turned to look. When she saw that it was Muir, she was stunned for a moment, then nodded politely. Seeing that she didn’t have any objections, he gestured for Muir to enter.
Muir heaved a large sigh of relief and then moved his long, straight, and slender legs to enter the courtyard.
“Parker, the leopard cubs have been practicing for half a day. Let them rest for a while.” Bai Qingqing spoke up in a loud voice after entering the backyard, raising her head to search for the leopards at the top of the trees over ten meters tall.
A series of shakes appeared in a corner amongst the lush treetops, and a leopard head that looked very childish darted out and cried out softly toward her. From his intelligent little eyes, she could recognize the smartest Third.
Bai Qingqing saw that the branch was thinner than the leopard’s legs, and when the cub stepped on it, it would cause the branch to shake up and down. Her heart immediately rose, and she couldn’t help but pull her hand out from Winston’s.
“Come down quickly.” Bai Qingqing walked over under the tree in quick steps, reaching out her arms to catch him.
Third swung his tail, causing the branch to shake intensely. His body also shook, as if he was an acrobat standing on steel wires. He then kicked out his hind legs and pounced toward his mommy.
Bai Qingqing was prepared to catch Third, but at the critical moment, she was raised by a pair of arms and moved elsewhere. Winston stood where Bai Qingqing originally was, catching Third’s stomach with one hand. If he had caught him firmly, it’d definitely cause Third’s tender ribs to receive pressure.
