Chapter 1135: The Dust Settles (2)
She thought to herself that if she was a male, she’d definitely join in the howling. It was a strength that people yearned to have.
The beastmen’s cries a.s.sured the eagle beastmen in the sky. Then, they carefully ferried the females down.
Winston also turned into his beast form, with him and Curtis standing on Bai Qingqing’s sides, protecting her as they headed home. Muir looked at the bundle on the ground and then resigned himself to it as he picked it up with his beak, following closely behind them.
The City of Beastmen’s trial was over. Although several thousand lives had been paid, what they didn’t know was that this battle also caused the behemoths to change their perspectives of beastmen by a little.
After all, the price they paid was too great. The death rate was too high. It wasn’t worth it to take such great risks for the sake of getting food.
This change of perspective wasn’t obvious now, but as time pa.s.sed, it would grow increasingly intense.
When the behemoths pa.s.sed by this place again, they’d recognize the City of Beastmen’s location and subconsciously avoid it. It even went to the extent that they wouldn’t prioritize beastmen tribes when they pa.s.sed by them anymore like how they had done in the past. Of course, this would be a story for later.
Half of the beastmen stayed at home to reconstruct their homes, while the other half went to deal with the behemoth corpses. These were going to be the main food source for the City of Beastmen in the heavy rainy season or even up to the cold season.
Bai Qingqing squatted down on the floor, occasionally poking the leopard cubs cosplaying as rocks. She said, “Come out. There’s a lot of meat to eat.”
One of them snorted, sounding exactly the same as a human. Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but feel like laughing again.
This wouldn’t do. She must bear with it. The cubs were already embarra.s.sed enough as it was.
The leopard cubs felt like there was nothing more to live for. So be it if their fur was shaved off. They were prepared to not head out anyway, not showing it to people. But…
When they grew up, they might feel thankful that there weren’t any females present. Otherwise, it might really affect their chances when pursuing a mate.
Curtis and Winston washed off the blood on their bodies in the small river, then entered the bedroom in succession. Bai Qingqing stroked a leopard cubs’ uneven back and asked, “How are we going to move the dead behemoths back?”
“I’ve already made the arrangements. Latest by tomorrow, we’ll finish dealing with the food. I hope that it doesn’t rain these two days.” Winston then relaxed. The burly man let out an unusual sluggish vibe, looking indescribably s.e.xy.
Winston’s lips curled up and he added, “The food will be enough to last us till next year’s light rainy season.”
Bai Qingqing smiled as well. “That’s great. Oh right, the transparent crystals on the corpses…”
Bai Qingqing had no idea if she should be asking that. Beastmen were very simple and honest. Maybe she shouldn’t doubt their characters.
However, Winston said, “They were eaten when we were hunting the behemoths, to replenish energy. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to keep up with the behemoths’ stamina.”
Bai Qingqing understood. “That’s good, then.”
Both Winston and Curtis were exhausted. After chatting for a while, they went to sleep. Bai Qingqing squatted by the leopard cubs, gently stroking their bodies.
All the threats had been removed. Bai Qingqing felt completely at ease now.
The fragrant smell of food woke Bai Qingqing’s senses. Muir came in with a bowl of noodles with thick soup, walking toward her restrainedly.
“You haven’t had breakfast yet. I’ve made noodles, but it seems like it isn’t well-made. Try it to see if it’s edible. If it’s not good, I’ll go remake it.” Although Muir said this, his eyes were filled with antic.i.p.ation as he looked at Bai Qingqing.
How was this well made? It was definitely not well-made. The noodles looked like they were going to dissolve into the soup.
However, it smelled quite nice and the meat slices looked very appetizing as well. Bai Qingqing thanked him and then started eating happily.
