Chapter 1118: Lollipop Eagle Beastman
Bai Qingqing realized that, even though Muir was strong, his physique was plagued by misfortunes as compared to Parker. If all of his injuries were bandaged, he’d be wrapped up into a mummy. Even… cough, that spot wouldn’t be missed.
Bai Qingqing felt embarra.s.sed as all sorts of thoughts ran through her mind.
Muir said up and threw a glance toward Curtis’s sleeping spot. Seeing that he wasn’t around, his expression relaxed a little.
Curtis must have gone to prepare breakfast for Qingqing. Muir recalled how Parker and Winston had taken care of Bai Qingqing when she woke up over the past few days and looked around. He picked up the clothes that were kicked to the floor by her, patted away the dust, then handed them to her.
“Thank… thank you.” Bai Qingqing unconsciously glanced to the spot between Muir’s legs. She didn’t bother that the clothes had gotten cold and swiftly put them on.
Then, she shuddered from the chill.
Only then did Muir recall that Winston had once warmed up the clothes before handing them to Qingqing. He felt annoyed with himself and swore to remember this the next time.
An’an was still deeply asleep. Bai Qingqing walked over to check on her and planted a kiss on her tender face before leaving the bedroom together with Muir.
The leopard cubs were playing in the s.p.a.cious main hall. Having gotten used to the good food prepared by their daddy, they didn’t care for Curtis’s cooking. Therefore, it was a rare sight that they didn’t stay around in the kitchen.
Seeing their mommy coming over, the leopard cubs’ eyes lit up. Out of which, Third’s eyes were the brightest.
However, he wasn’t looking at his mommy, but at the… delicious-smelling eagle beastman next to her.
“Howl howl howl!” Third raised his head and ran toward Muir, looking so enthusiastic that even Bai Qingqing felt a little jealous.
“When did the children start to get along so well with you?” Bai Qingqing smiled and asked.
Muir didn’t understand, either. He guessed it was probably because he had secretly fed them food.
However, who in the family hadn’t fed the leopard cubs before? They didn’t appear especially close to the others.
“We probably have a good affinity,” Muir said.
Bai Qingqing suddenly recalled that Muir was the first male that the leopard cubs had seen. It was true that they had an affinity with each other.
Wait a minute, it couldn’t be that the leopard cubs could still remember Muir, right?
“Children, do you guys remember Muir?” Bai Qingqing squatted down and patted Third’s head, asking.
Third turned his head to look at Muir, then replied with a high-pitched voice, “Howl!”
Bai Qingqing immediately understood the meaning behind that affirmative tone and couldn’t help but say, “You guys really have good memories.”
Muir felt flattered. It was no wonder that the children seemed happy when they saw him. It was because of what had happened two years ago.
Third rubbed against his mommy’s palm, then ran over to Muir’s side, brus.h.i.+ng his hot tongue onto Muir’s strong leg, licking it deliciously as if he was licking a lollipop.
“That’s enough. I don’t see you guys being so close to your daddy.” Bai Qingqing flicked Third’s forehead and stood up.
Muir also immediately got up, and they walked alongside each other toward the kitchen.
Third shook his head and then followed behind Muir. Whenever he had the chance, he’d lick his leg.
Eldest and Second finally noticed an abnormality and, after following the adults to the kitchen, also licked the eagle beastman’s legs.
The two young beastmen’s eyes instantly opened wide, exchanging a glance and noticing the surprise and disbelief in each other’s gazes.
Before the eagle beastman had turned into his human form, he laid in the gra.s.s nest and didn’t move at all. They almost thought of him as a roasted bird that could be eaten. However, they smelled an extremely familiar scent later on and held in their craving, not biting him.
