Chapter 1128: Unt.i.tled
There was a slight movement in the gra.s.s pile, and black noses and golden almond-shaped eyes popped out in succession. Their eyes beamed with curiosity and they gulped, suddenly no longer feeling so world-weary anymore.
However, none of them planned on coming out, not even if they had to die.
Bai Qingqing looked at them and then placed the plates on the floor in front of them. She then took meat pieces that were about the size of the leopard cubs’ faces from the food basin that Muir was carrying. She placed them in front of them and added two strips of honeyed fried dough twists.
The leopard cubs’ noses sniffed for a while before they stuck out their tongues and tasted it reservedly. Their eyes instantly lit up, and, after letting out a “howl~”, they started eating away.
Bai Qingqing smiled. Looking at them laying on the floor and eating, she couldn’t help but recall the pet dog she had kept in the modern world. She then suddenly felt awkward.
Muir looked at her smiling and the corners of his lips also curled up slightly.
Curtis took all the food and also entered the bedroom. He threw a glance at Bai Qingqing, who was squatting by the gra.s.s nest and looking at the children. His eyes warmed up and he called out, “Come over and eat too.”
“En.” Bai Qingqing turned and smiled at him, slurping her saliva and getting up.
The new dishes were very popular, and both An’an and Bai Qingqing ate a few more bites than usual. The leopard cubs who refused to come out howled away on the gra.s.s after they were done eating, only stopping after their stomachs were bloated from all the food.
When the sky turned dark, An’an started to kick up a racket again. Bai Qingqing had no choice but to look for Bluepool and borrow his luminous ball.
The light rays in the room flickered between bright and dark. An’an was chewing on the luminous ball, so a lot of the light rays would occasionally be covered up by her.
Bai Qingqing felt unaccustomed to the silence since it had been a while since the last one. This was especially when someone unfamiliar was laying down next to her. All she could smell was the scent of an unfamiliar male, and it was even stronger than on a rainy night.
Bai Qingqing’s heart was getting a little fast. She turned and faced An’an, who was on the other side, then gradually relaxed as she entered her sweet dreamland.
After she was fast asleep, Muir’s stiff body relaxed and his arms turned into huge wings, covering her tightly in his arms. He then went to sleep, feeling satisfied.
The next day, Bai Qingqing felt that it was abnormally quiet at home the moment she woke up. She only realized this when she was having breakfast. It was because the leopard cubs didn’t kick up a racket.
She went back to the bedroom to take a look. As expected, all of them were hidden in the gra.s.s pile.
“Are you guys planning on staying in there until your fur grows out?” Bai Qingqing poked a bulge in the gra.s.s pile, touched a warm body, and said in amus.e.m.e.nt.
Of course, they had to wait until their furs had grown out before they could come out. The leopard cubs thought in unison.
Bai Qingqing’s heart ached for them while finding it amusing at the same time. She suddenly heard a series of howls coming from outside and walked over to the door to take a look.
Winston and the others had traveled day and night, rus.h.i.+ng to bring back the food while the rain had stopped.
Three hundred of the village’s strongest beastmen had gone out for this trip. Each of them was lugging net-shaped bags that were several tens times bigger than their bodies, looking like a group of ants gathering food.
In order to reduce their burden and to conserve the salt, the food in the baggage was meat that was torn out into pieces. The bones and skin were all removed.
This amount of meat was enough to last the beastmen in the village for half a month. All the males in the village cried out excitedly, shaking all the leaves in the forest and causing them to make rustling sounds.
“Distribute this food to everyone.” Winston handed the matter over to the tiger tribal head and then headed home.
The tiger tribal head happily went to carry out the command.
Parker was unburdened from responsibilities and had already run to the entrance of their home.
The leopard that had a long and slender figure, as well as a beautiful running posture, cried out excitedly at the door, “Howl howl howl!” [Qingqing, I’m back!]
