Chapter 1089: Muir, Don’t Leave (3)
Males’ senses weren’t comparable. Muir was still groggy in the earlier moment, but at the next moment, he had completely recovered his clarity and happened to hear Bai Qingqing’s last line clearly.
His body shook intensely. Roast chicken…
Although he had no idea what “chicken” was, he knew that Bai Qingqing liked to eat roasted birds that had their wings broken off. He reckoned that they were similar to each other.
He immediately realized that he was being regarded with disdain. Opening his eyes, the memories from before he fell unconscious rapidly returned to him. The great pain in his black eyes was instantly replaced by panic, and there was even a hint of despair.
Why didn’t he die? How was he supposed to face Bai Qingqing now? It was fine to say that he was weak, but he really didn’t dare to face Bai Qingqing. He didn’t dare to face the fact that she might despise him.
When Bai Qingqing saw that Muir had suddenly woken up, surprise appeared on her face. Before she could say anything, she was pushed down to the ground. A black shadow flashed before her with a hint of charred scent.
“Muir!” Bai Qingqing let out a surprised cry and got up, then turned to take a look. There was no sign of the black eagle in the room anymore.
Bai Qingqing felt that things were bad and quickly dashed out. Even after running all the way to the main hall, she still didn’t see him.
It was still raining heavily outside, and the front courtyard was very muddy, allowing her to see a trail of large bird claw prints.
Bai Qingqing lowered her head and looked at her furry slippers, then at the rainy weather. She hesitated and asked herself if she should chase after him.
At this moment, Parker entered while holding a bowl of piping hot noodles. When he saw Bai Qingqing, he immediately asked, “Why did you come out?”
“You’re just in time.” Bai Qingqing quickly walked toward him, saying anxiously, “Muir has woken up. He just ran out. Quickly go and take a look. Don’t let him leave.”
Bai Qingqing had no idea why Muir had run off, but she had the vague feeling that this time around, he might never come back after he left.
Parker was instantly elated. After hearing the latter half of Bai Qingqing’s words, he then seemed a little displeased. However, he still agreed. “Alright. You stay here and have your noodles. I’ll go right away.”
“Mmm.” Bai Qingqing nodded, but she didn’t look at the food at all.
Parker stared at her anxious expression, not panicked at all. He slowly and calmly walked over to the table and placed the noodles on it.
His calm demeanor almost made Bai Qingqing jump from anxiety. She ran over to his side and said, “Hurry up.”
Parker’s countenance sank, and he pressed his hands down on Bai Qingqing’s shoulders, using his leg to hook over a stone stool that was cus.h.i.+oned with animal skin. He made her sit down, then said, “Be good and have your noodles.”
Bai Qingqing looked very anxious and wanted to say something when Parker said, “If I see that you haven’t finished the noodles after I’m back, I’ll chase him away.”
Bai Qingqing glared, feeling so angry that she wanted to bash him up. However, in order not to have any more delays, she lowered her head and immediately started eating.
Parker let out a breath, feeling consoled. He then immediately felt upset. The reason Qingqing was being so docile was that she wanted him to hurry and look for Muir.
He didn’t make things troublesome. After seeing that Bai Qingqing was eating seriously, he immediately undid his animal skin skirt, transformed into his leopard form, and gave change.
Bai Qingqing turned her head with a mouthful of noodles in her mouth when she heard Parker’s departing footsteps. With his help, it was definitely possible to find Muir.
Bai Qingqing felt a.s.sured, and only then did she realize that she was starving. She turned and started eating her food seriously.
Although the heavy rain had rapidly washed away the scent of the tracks, the muddy ground still had obvious traces on it. Parker ran rapidly, following the traces, and quickly caught up to Muir, who had run to the city gates.
A leopard roar stopped the eagle beastman’s violently charging legs.
