Chapter 1188: Frozen Little Snakes (1)
Females didn’t want the ones they liked to see them looking ugly and disheveled. Similarly, Muir didn’t want Bai Qingqing to see him looking weak and forlorn.
Muir paused drinking the porridge, feeling the strong urge to hide on the spot.
When Bai Qingqing saw that, she urged, “Hurry up and eat. Does it not taste good?”
Muir quickly buried his face and continued eating, raising the bowl to block his face, which might have a very bad complexion.
Muir felt so hungry that he could eat an entire behemoth by himself. He kept on chugging down bowl after bowl of meat paste. The more he ate, the hungrier he felt.
There was quite a lot of meat paste in the pot. After he had eaten three bowls, Bai Qingqing stopped him from getting another.
“You haven’t eaten anything for one and a half months. You should take it slow. Don’t hurt your body,” Bai Qingqing explained in a soft voice.
Muir’s eyes had turned red from his starvation. Unlike humans who would give off a weak feeling when they were hungry, wild beasts would give off a dangerous feeling when they were hungry. Their hostility would be many times stronger than usual. This situation appeared even more intense when reflected by a beastman.
If someone else said this, they’d definitely be sent flying by Muir’s wings. However, when Bai Qingqing said this, he felt very consoled in his heart. Without even thinking, he said, “Alright.”
Even though at the point when he gave this reply, the thought on his mind was still to fill up his stomach. Anything would do.
Bai Qingqing smiled and tugged at Muir to squat down. “We’ll warm up by the fire here. After resting for a while, you can continue to eat.”
A faint smile also appeared on Muir’s skinny face, and he squatted down by his mate.
Parker looked at them for quite a while, feeling very jealous. Qingqing seemed to have become nicer and gentler toward Muir.
To think that this worked… Should he also look for an opportunity to starve himself for a few days so that Qingqing’s heart would ache for him?
However, looking at how Muir looked so skinny like a wild beast that was going to starve to death, Parker hesitated. This was too risky. He had to always maintain a strong image in front of Qingqing. He should dismiss the thought of starving himself.
Bai Qingqing and Muir left and didn’t come back after very long. Curtis finally couldn’t hold it in anymore and quietly climbed out from the window. His body was enveloped by cold air, and his blood instantly cooled down as well. His movements quickly stiffened and slowed down.
The group of little snakes looked at their daddy’s tail slipping away. They exchanged glances amongst themselves and also slithered to the window. All of them leaned against the wall, straightening their bodies, with only a few centimeters of the tip of their tails bent.
Despite this, they still couldn’t reach the window. Not long later, the ten snakes all pasted themselves against the wall, looking like an upright organ.
Thankfully, the bedside cabinet was next to the window. A clever snake climbed up onto the cabinet, straightened his body, and was finally able to reach the animal skin curtain by the edge of the window.
He bit onto the animal skin curtain and curled his body up, successfully slipping out of the window.
The eyes of the other little snakes lit up and they imitated what the first one did. All of them slipped out from the window’s gap in succession, making the ones lagging behind feel anxious.
It was only after they had arrived outside did they realize how cold it was. The little snake that came out first smacked into the ground, his body already frozen stiff. He froze up into a rod on the ground that had a thin layer of snow on it, his eyes filled with disbelief as if he was saying, How is that possible? The air was so warm earlier.
The little snake that came out right after him also felt his body rapidly turning stiff. He turned his head, unwilling to accept this, and saw yet another snake falling out. They thought to themselves how foolish that snake was to come out despite it being so cold, forgetting that they had also come out anxiously in the same way.
Not long later, all ten little snakes gathered under the window. None of them were able to crawl away, and they had all frozen stiff on the ground.
