Chapter 1186: Bai Qingqing’s Improvement
Curtis let out a sound that sounded like a cold snort, turning his head and ignoring her.
Bai Qingqing felt aggrieved and tried to pry his body to take a look inside. As expected, she found the little snakes inside.
“I knew that they were here.”
Bai Qingqing felt a little scared after seeing the little snakes, and she glared at Curtis. It was all because he left things be that the little snakes went around attacking others.
The leopard cubs came running over as well, going around Curtis.
They didn’t have a good impression of the little snakes (they had been bullied too much by small Curtis back then). They had initially thought that they could get their revenge after seeing the newly born little snakes this time around but didn’t expect them to be so fierce right after they were born. Moreover, there were a lot of them and they were also fast. Thankfully, they hadn’t been bitten.
This made the leopard cubs both fear and detest the young snakes. Therefore, they didn’t dare to get close recklessly.
Bai Qingqing had no idea what the cubs’ true feelings were and thought they wanted to get close to their brothers. Therefore, she wanted to give them a push.
She held her breath, glared at Curtis, then reached in to touch the snakes.
She didn’t believe that Curtis would watch her get bitten.
As expected, Curtis finally moved. He turned his head and took out the snake that was closer to the outside.
He threw a threatening glance at the little snake before handing him over to Bai Qingqing.
Bai Qingqing took the little snake proudly, threw a glance at Curtis, and snorted softly. She then turned toward the leopard cubs and immediately changed her expression into a soft and loving smile. “Look, this is your younger brother.”
The leopard cubs took a step back in unison, arching their bodies slightly, a pose that could allow them to jump at any moment. They also let out a growl they would only release when encountering an enemy.
Bai Qingqing was speechless.
It didn’t feel good with his body half dangling in the air and human temperature was warm. After the initial panic, the little snake bound himself around his mommy’s arm.
That was right. They could recognize their mommy. The legacy they received from the moment they broke out of their sh.e.l.ls was a protection that snake beastmen had for their mates. They didn’t allow the young snakes to harm their mates.
The reason for the riot earlier was because they had seen their arch-enemy—eagle beastman Muir—even though the warmth that they had been feeling thus far came from him.
The heavy weight on her arms caused Bai Qingqing to turn her gaze onto the little snake on her arm. Looking at the curled-up snake body, Bai Qingqing suddenly broke out in gooseb.u.mps all over and her arm tensed up as she shook it down.
“Shall we steam eggs for the little snakes?” Bai Qingqing asked.
Curtis tugged off the young snake that couldn’t bear to part with Bai Qingqing’s body, stuffed it under his tail, then said, “They just came out from their sh.e.l.ls. They don’t have to eat anything for now.”
Bai Qingqing nodded. As they were young snakes, she had a strong desire to communicate with Curtis on how they should raise them. However, she found it hard to bring this up.
They were supposed to be giving each other the silent treatment… Although, it seemed as if she was the one given the silent treatment?
No, this wouldn’t do. To think that Curtis gave her the cold shoulder first before she even said anything. So what if he was cold, handsome, and dignified?
Hmmph, she was also going to put up a cold, beautiful, and dignified stance. The one who gave in first would be the one to lose.
Bai Qingqing held in her desire to communicate and sat down by the side to think about how she should feed the snakes.
Heck. She had fed the last batch steamed eggs. She should use steamed eggs to get into the little snakes’ good books first, build up a good relations.h.i.+p with them, then feed them with fresh meat strips.
At the thought of building a good relations.h.i.+p, Bai Qingqing suddenly thought of something and the delight in her eyes suddenly froze. She then lowered her eyes, trying to hide the pain in them.
Curtis threw her a glance, not wearing any expression on his face but feeling very satisfied inside.
Snow finally had the consciousness of letting them go. Excellent.
He wasn’t going to be softhearted to this nest of snakes. He’d let them go after the light rainy season arrived.
