Chapter 1031: Unt.i.tled
When Winston sent the stewed meat to Harvey’s place, Muir was squatting on an empty s.p.a.ce in the wooden house, not moving, looking just like a statue. When he smelled the familiar fragrance of cooked food, his eagle eyes immediately opened, a hint of disbelief flas.h.i.+ng in his pitch-black eyes.
This… Bai Qingqing sent it to him?
Winston also tried to cover up, saying, “She heard that you’re receiving treatment and was worried that you won’t be able to get food. Therefore, she told me to bring some to you. I’ll take responsibility for your food these few days. You can just recuperate in peace.”
The eagle beak opened. It was hard to conceal the astonishment and great joy on the eagle face, and even his breathing quickened, his chest undulating intensely.
Flying was an action that depleted a lot of oxygen, and eagle beastmen were the best at flying. Their lung capacity was undoubtedly the best in the natural world. Ordinary eagle beastmen wouldn’t pant even after flying for one to two days consecutively. However, Muir’s chest was undulating intensely today. This was rare even amongst all the beastmen who could fly.
It was just a line, but Muir’s reaction was already so intense. It seemed that his feelings for Qingqing were a lot stronger than he imagined.
Winston had heard about the matter between Muir and Curtis. He held no comments for Muir’s actions. He felt that Muir had lost by one move and lost everything. If he had succeeded that time, the one at home now wouldn’t be Curtis, but the eagle beastman Muir.
He was quite pitiful to have reached this state. After this matter was over, Curtis wouldn’t be able to let him stay either. At that time, Muir would either have to die or leave. To think that he could only survive by relying on someone else’s evil deeds.
Winston once again felt thankful that he was so lucky in comparison.
As Winston went into deep thought, Muir gulped and quickly finished the pot of meat. He also kept on pecking, finis.h.i.+ng all the sauce as well.
Muir ate everything cleanly, causing his mouth to be covered with grease. He tilted his head and rubbed his beak against the feathers at his neck. Keeping his emotions, he looked up toward Winston.
Winston nodded at him and then carried the pot with one hand, walking into the rain.
Harvey had been sorting out medicinal herbs at the side. He threw a glance at the eagle beastman, whose viciousness had faded by a lot, then shook his head helplessly.
He had no idea what had happened between this eagle and Bai Qingqing’s group. He had already done his best to help out and hoped that they’d get together. This eagle beastman was so strong. With him around, Bai Qingqing would be safer.
In the next few days, Winston sent food to Muir on time every day. For the sake of his recuperation, the food would all be cut into bite-size pieces.
Harvey only allowed Muir to move five days later, but he was forbidden to transform. It’d make his bones, that had finally started to recuperate, to break again. All the previous effort would go to waste then.
Winston continued to bring food to Muir, ensuring that Muir had no other worries. Without Winston’s help, just the matter of food alone would bring about a great threat to him.
The first rain in the heavy rainy season continued for six to seven days. The sky didn’t clear up, and the humidity in the air was so strong that it irritated the nose. Even the males felt a little uncomfortable, and half of the females fell sick.
Bai Qingqing wasn’t one of them. After all, her body had received countless vaccinations and her immunity was a lot better than the native females.
Although the rainy days were stifling, it was also quiet. The sudden leopard howl broke this precious tranquility.
Bai Qingqing was chewing on fried dough twists on the highest floor. An’an, whom she was carrying, was also holding onto a fried dough twist and chewing on it.
The air higher up wasn’t as stifling, and the wide vision also made her mood better. However, she suddenly saw that the leopards in the village came darting out from the trees, running outside anxiously. It seemed like something serious had taken place.
