Chapter 1178: Leopard Cubs Stealing Eggs
However, Bai Qingqing was very happy. She even smiled and said, “Open your mouth. I’ll pour the soup into it.”
Muir kept himself composed and then shook his head firmly. The amount he drank was enough to make him feel regretful.
Bai Qingqing then picked up the other bowl, saying, “Come, have some meat.”
There were nutrients in the soup, and Muir felt that he had recovered some energy. Therefore, he refused to open his mouth.
After Bai Qingqing received no results after trying to persuade him for a while, she could only leave helplessly.
The result of drinking too much soup was that Muir couldn’t help but want to relieve himself. He held it in until the next morning. After Bai Qingqing brought in delicious soup hopefully, he moved his body uncomfortably.
Bai Qingqing’s mouth was agape as she quickly headed over to Muir’s side, asking nervously, “Are the chicks going to break out from the sh.e.l.ls?”
“Coo~” Muir shook his head and turned his beak in the direction of the bed-stove, nodding to gesture something.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t understand. She turned and looked at the empty floor, asking, “What do you want? To move the nest on top of the bed-stove to warm up the eggs from both the top and the bottom?”
Bai Qingqing frowned. She felt that the bed-stove’s temperature was too high and the eggs might get cooked.
Muir didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. He tilted his body, putting out one claw with great difficulty, then grabbed onto Bai Qingqing’s blanket, tugging it toward the direction of the bed-stove.
Bai Qingqing finally understood. “You want me to put the blanket on the bed-stove?”
Seeing his nod, Bai Qingqing immediately did as he asked.
The blanket was quickly warmed up, but Bai Qingqing had no idea what Muir wanted it for. They communicated with each other for a very long time without success. In the end, Muir fell apart. He suddenly stood up, dashed over onto the bed-stove at the fastest speed possible, revealing a nest of eggs that had dried black and red blood traces.
Bai Qingqing opened her mouth wide. This was the first time she saw what the eggs were like, and she quickly ran over to the nest to stare at them. Due to her agitation, her heartbeat was a little fast.
Muir brought the blanket back and covered the warmed-up part onto the eggs. This also blocked Bai Qingqing’s vision.
Bai Qingqing slouched disappointedly and was about to ask what Muir was doing when she felt a gust of wind. She turned her head and saw no bird next to her.
Bai Qingqing chased after him, and when she saw Muir das.h.i.+ng straight for the sandpit, she finally realized the truth.
It was a necessity when Muir insisted on not drinking water. However, she didn’t regret it in the least. If it was life-threatening to hatch the eggs, then she’d rather risk the chicks that didn’t have a consciousness yet instead of Muir.
The vision from the corner of her eyes blurred. It was as if something had charged over.
Bai Qingqing turned her head and saw the leopard cubs’ figures flas.h.i.+ng past. Before her vision focused, they were already out of sight.
What reason could there be for the leopard cubs to dash over? They must have smelled the fragrance and ran over to drink the soup.
The eggs were still there, and she wasn’t certain if the leopard cubs would break them.
“Stop right there!” Bai Qingqing chased after them.
As expected, they had come to steal the soup. The moment they entered the room, their eyes swept around the room and then they dashed straight for the soup bowl.
They were about to drink the soup when they paused again.
Hmmm? Where was the eagle beastman who smelled like barbecued meat?
The leopard cubs exchanged a glance as they looked at the empty nest. All of them shared the same sentiments and got closer to it, pulling down the blanket.
Then, their golden almond-shaped eyes opened wide, with their mouths also slightly agape. Their expressions looked exactly like Bai Qingqing when she saw them.
However, there was an additional hint of contempt in their eyes. The black blood traces were an eyesore.
At the age of two or three, they were at their most playful phase. They felt that they had grown up and wanted to try everything to prove their abilities.
Despite their despise, after seeing the eggs, all of them fought to open their mouths to pick them up. They planned on stealing two back to hatch the eggs themselves.
