Chapter 1179: Leopard Cubs Receive Scolding
However, the instant they bit onto the egg, they paused, feeling perplexed.
When Bai Qingqing rushed over, what she saw was the scene of the leopard cubs holding onto the eggs in their mouths.
Horrified, she thought that they wanted to eat eggs. She immediately let out an enraged bellow, “Put them down!”
“Howl!” The leopard cubs were given a fright and all their fur stood up. Their mouths opened in unison and all three eggs fell.
Bai Qingqing’s heart felt like it was going to fly out as she watched the eggs falling.
Thankfully, the blanket that had been messed up by the cubs was on the floor and the eggs landed silently on it. They didn’t seem to be damaged at all.
Bai Qingqing heaved a slight sense of relief, glaring at them furiously as she walked forward.
The leopard cubs knew that they made a mistake, and this was also the first time they were being treated so harshly by their mommy. All of them tucked their tails in and trembled as they backed off to the side.
Of course, Bai Qingqing was concerned about the eggs the most and ignored them for now. She picked up the eggs and checked them, then her tensed-up heart relaxed a little after seeing no cracks.
It should be fine, right?
The leopard cubs sneakily backed off toward the door while their mommy wasn’t paying attention to them.
Bai Qingqing seemed to sense something and suddenly looked toward them harshly.
The leopard cubs’ plump bodies shook, and they all ran off after letting out a howl.
Bai Qingqing’s chest undulated, angered by their appearances. She patted her chest and said, “You’re going to be the death of me!”
Muir came back very quickly, and the rus.h.i.+ng leopard cubs knocked into his legs. He found this suspicious and quickly entered the bedroom.
“Coo-coo~” Muir entered quickly. When he saw the eggs exposed to the air, he instantly quickened his footsteps and arrived by the nest at the speed of the wind.
Bai Qingqing looked toward him guiltily and said in a soft voice, “These three eggs were dropped. They should be fine, right?”
After saying that, Bai Qingqing clearly saw the black eagle’s pitch-black pupils contract. He clearly minded this a lot.
That pair of eyes then emitted flames of fury as he turned to look toward the door.
Bai Qingqing quickly said, “It was me…”
Although Muir doted on the cubs, he wasn’t their daddy, after all. Even Bai Qingqing was extremely angry. Muir might end up hating them. She didn’t wish to see that.
Muir understood her meaning and lowered his head to rub against her head. He then placed the eggs into the nest one by one, squatted into the nest, then continued to incubate the eggs.
He felt extremely regretful and scared.
He had been hatching them for a month, so they should be breaking out from the eggs soon. At this critical moment, why did he have to be greedy and drink soup? If he didn’t drink it, he wouldn’t have the urge to relieve himself. If he hadn’t gone to relieve himself, the cubs wouldn’t have the opportunity to touch the eggs. This danger wouldn’t exist then.
His departure might have already affected the eggs. He was really scared the eggs would spoil because of this.
The atmosphere in the room instantly became heavy. Bai Qingqing sat down by Muir’s side, feeling at a loss. In the end, she couldn’t sit still and got up to look for the cubs to get even with them.
“You naughty cubs! All of you scram over here!” Bai Qingqing broke a piece of wilted vine, then angrily went to search the places where the leopard cubs usually played at.
Parker came back with a gray rodent with lush fur in his mouth. Upon hearing this, he hastened his footsteps, walked to the castle’s door, then bit down to kill the rodent, tossing it to the pile of snow at the side. He then cast an inquiring look toward Bai Qingqing.
Bai Qingqing immediately said, “The leopard cubs were naughty just now. They almost took the eggs away.”
Parker’s brows furrowed harshly together. He took a whiff of the cubs’ paw prints, then went out to search for them while following the scent. Very soon, he chased the cubs back.
The cubs ran back home, trembling in fear, praying in their hearts that their mommy could defend them.
