Chapter 1101: Mysterious Tree Bark Fiber (1)
Bai Qingqing was afraid that Muir might harm his body if he transformed, and her tone had a hint of anxiety to it. How could Muir not be able to tell that she was trying to give in to him? He felt both dejected and secretly pleased.
The reason for his dejection was that Qingqing had misunderstood him. After all, the reason he was secretly pleased was that she was concerned for him. With this, it didn’t matter even if she misunderstood.
The sound of the rain came from outside the room. The two of them continued to maintain such an intimate posture, and the atmosphere became warm and harmonious.
When Parker and Winston came back, they immediately saw how intimate the two of them were and felt upset.
They dragged back a big piece of bark that was like a tarpaulin. At its widest spot, it was about ten to twenty meters, and its length was also over thirty meters long. The rough bark dragged out a long muddy trail on the ground, looking as if a huge snake had just slithered past.
Bai Qingqing let out a “wow” and then darted out from under Muir’s wings. Even though she shuddered from the cold wind, she didn’t pay it any heed. She stood under the roof and said happily, “It’s so big. Hurry up. I can’t wait.”
Seeing how childish their mate was being, Parker, who also had a playful nature, was immediately influenced. He broke into a smile and came running over, dragging the bark with him. Winston’s upset feelings also suddenly dissipated and he let go of his grip, letting Parker drag the bark away.
Parker placed the bark by the door. Bai Qingqing squatted down and smelled an astringent plant scent. She wanted to use her hand to poke it but was scared that there’d be poison. She looked up at Parker and said, “You guys didn’t get hurt, right?”
“No.” Parker squatted down by her side, then did what Bai Qingqing wanted to do but didn’t dare to. He poked the bark that was fresh with a hint of white to it, making Bai Qingqing so scared that she quickly grabbed his hand.
“Be careful, it might be poisonous.” Bai Qingqing turned his hand over to check it, and only felt a.s.sured after seeing that there was no wound.
Winston walked over slowly, standing in the rain and not entering. His voice sounded deep but had a hint of gentleness to it. “What else do we have to do?”
Bai Qingqing thought about it, then turned to look toward the storeroom next to the kitchen and said, “I remember that there are a few stone hammers in the storeroom. Use the stone hammers to smash the bark until it’s shattered.”
“Huh?” Parker was perplexed. He looked at the muddy bark but still decided to believe in his mate.
“Alright, I’ll go get them.”
Bai Qingqing nodded and let out an “en”.
Parker brought back two stone hammers and then worked together with Winston to lift the bark, was.h.i.+ng the mud off it with the rainwater, then brought it into the main hall.
Thankfully, their house was ma.s.sive. There was plenty of s.p.a.ce in the main hall to place such a big piece of bark. It was laid out on the floor, looking like a carpet.
“Thud thud thud.”
The two males held onto stone hammers and started hammering down on the bark, sending shattered pieces of bark splattering out. Bai Qingqing watched from afar, and Muir used his wings to block in front of her, preventing her from being cut by the bark.
They had thought that the bark would become shattered pieces after being hammered on but didn’t expect that, although the bark was broken into pieces, there was still a layer of green-white fiber fabric left behind amidst the shattered pieces of brown bark.
“Hmmm?” Parker was the first to notice the abnormality. He stopped hammering, picked up a thin piece of fabric, and rubbed it, his eyes filled with disbelief.
Winston glanced at him and also stopped, a hit of surprise flas.h.i.+ng in his eyes. He subconsciously looked toward Bai Qingqing.
Bai Qingqing was no less surprised than they were, and her expression was filled with disbelief. “Wow! It really works.”
As upas trees were rare, Bai Qingqing had specially researched it out of curiosity for rare species. When she read the information about it, she had found it amazing. Now that she was looking at it with her own eyes, she found it even more amazing.
