Chapter 1126: Becoming Toads
Harvey said with certainty, “Don’t worry, the newly grown fur will be even better. Some young children have spa.r.s.e and dull fur. The treatment given to them would be to shave their fur.”
He glanced at Muir and Curtis. The two beastmen understood and immediately went to catch the cubs.
Not long later, the three cubs were caught back, all of them howling away non-stop. They sounded so pitiful as if they were reared pigs that were about to be slaughtered.
Hearing their agonizing cries, Bai Qingqing’s heart ached for them. However, when she saw Third’s nose swollen to the size of a table tennis ball, she steeled her head, raised the blade, and said, “Come, let’s do it for Third first. He must have been stung the worst.”
“Howl howl howl howl howl howl!!!!” Third cried out agonizingly as loud as he could, his legs struggling so much that they were going to cramp up.
He hadn’t forgotten how strange his daddy had looked with a bare spot on his head. It looked so bad with just a part of the fur gone, so how could it look good after all of his fur was shaved off?
However, his parents were merciless and he wasn’t able to get away. When he felt the icy object against his skin, his body releasing fine buzzing sounds, he immediately sensed the part of skin over there feeling cool.
Bai Qingqing shaved his fur with an aching heart. After the fur on Third’s back was all shaved off, his skin didn’t look much different from that of a toad.
This made Bai Qingqing even more determined to shave the children, and she became more decisive when putting it into action.
Curtis didn’t just watch. After Bai Qingqing was done shaving Third, he had already used a scale to shave the other two cubs cleanly, with nothing left.
Of course, the fur on the cubs’ face was left untouched. Firstly, it was because their whiskers mustn’t be shaved. Secondly, it was to protect the cubs’ last bit of pride as males.
When they looked at their own reflections in the water pitifully, they’d at least be able to see their adorable leopard faces.
The shaving blade was placed down and three huge toads were presented.
The toads felt like all hopes in life were gone, and the sweet honey was no longer attractive to them at all. They looked at the golden glistening honey with wide-open and dead gazes, laying on the floor weakly while the adults got busy working on their bodies.
After spending the entire afternoon, the bee stingers on the cubs were more or less removed. They then gave the cubs a medicinal bath with the medicine Harvey gave them. Only then was the treatment completed.
The cubs were carried to the gra.s.s pile that Muir slept on. Their bodies were still a little wet and Bai Qingqing sat next to them, using a clean piece of animal skin to wipe off the water on their bodies.
“Alright, don’t be sad. You’ll grow even more beautiful fur in the future. How about I make delicious food for you guys tonight?” Bai Qingqing coaxed them with a gentle voice.
At the mention of “delicious food”, the leopard cubs’ dejected gazes lit up slightly. Then, they acted pretentiously and let out a few moans, saying that it didn’t matter to them.
Without their fur, their fat and round bodies looked like sausages. Paired with their pretentious behavior, they looked really adorable.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but smile, then said, “Should I carry your sister back to play with you?”
At the mention of their younger sister, they finally gave in and let out a few more moans.
Although it was the same reply, Bai Qingqing could tell the difference. She immediately sent Muir to the waterhole to pick An’an up.
An’an seemed to have just woken up. She yawned as she rubbed her eyes, not noticing that she had been placed together with the pile of plump leopard cubs.
“Howl~” The leopard cubs nudged against their sister intimately. Only a female born without any hair could console their fragile hearts.
An’an’s attention was finally turned toward them, and she stared at their unfamiliar and ugly skin that was rubbing endlessly against her.
She watched on in a daze for a few minutes, then suddenly raised her snow-white little plump hand to smack the ground. An abrupt and crisp slap sound rang out.
