Chapter 1190: “It’s Over” Little Snakes
Bai Qingqing also thought of this and immediately stood up, looking toward the door as well as the curtain.
They had just come in through the door. The long corridor wouldn’t be able to hide the snakes. They shouldn’t have crawled out through the door.
Therefore, Bai Qingqing walked toward the window and parted the curtains to look downward. Her lips twitched.
The little snakes presented all sorts of shapes as they were frozen stiff on the ground. There were some in the shape of mosquito coil, fried dough twist, waves, as well as some with a semi-standing pose, wanting to turn their heads to look back at the window as if wanting to climb back.
No matter their poses, all were hard, looking like carved-out wax art pieces with exaggerated designs.
Although Bai Qingqing was very worried, she still burst out laughing when she first saw this.
“Qingqing?” Muir also walked over to the window.
Bai Qingqing held back her smile and her expression changed into that of worry. She propped her hands by the windowsill and climbed, avoiding the little snakes on the ground, and carefully jumped down.
Muir also saw the little snakes in a variety of poses. His lips instantly twitched, and his expression turned indescribable.
Bai Qingqing squatted down and carefully poked an upright little snake.
The little snake was frozen to the extent that he couldn’t even turn his eyeb.a.l.l.s. However, there was still a gleam in his eyes.
His body had frozen up?
At this thought, Bai Qingqing’s expression changed drastically. Freezing would cause one’s cells to expand and crack. If humans were frozen into ice, they couldn’t survive.
However, snake beastmen had strong vitalities and shouldn’t die so easily. Moreover, their gazes still looked spirited.
Bai Qingqing got her act together and carefully picked up an upright snake so that he wouldn’t suddenly fall and break into pieces.
That icy touch made Bai Qingqing’s palms painful from the iciness. Her heart ached even more.
Standing up, Bai Qingqing handed the little snake to Muir. “Be careful, don’t knock him.”
“En.” Muir’s expression was solemn as he put out his hands to receive the upright little snake.
He had no idea if it was his illusion, but Muir felt that at the instant the little snake landed in his hands, an expression similar to “it’s over” flashed in the little snake’s eyes.
Muir paused as he received the little snake, then he turned his body stiffly. He saw Curtis from the corner of his eyes. Muir had no energy to pay him any heed and slowly walked over to his nest, placing the little snake horizontally down in the nest.
Curtis looked at them with a dubious expression for a while before walking over to the window and looking out. The corner of his eyes instantly twitched. He couldn’t believe that these were his children.
He felt that he wasn’t stupid, so why would he have such stupid children?
It wasn’t that the little snakes were stupid. It was an injustice to say that of them.
Under normal situations, young snakes wouldn’t hatch during the cold season. Moreover, the children had been staying in a warm environment since they had hatched. This gave them the delusion that the weather was very warm, which was why all of them would become frozen stiff after getting caught off-guard.
“Curtis.” Bai Qingqing wore a bitter expression as she called out to him, handing him the second snake.
Curtis wasn’t as gentle as Muir was. He casually picked up the coiled-up little snake with one hand and then turned to leave.
His indifference made Bai Qingqing’s heart beat frantically, not daring to hand him the little snakes anymore.
Contrary to Bai Qingqing’s thoughts, the little snake who was brought away by Curtis felt extremely thankful to not have ended up in the eagle beastman’s hands. He was then placed in Curtis’s nest.
Despite Curtis’s enraged expression, Bai Qingqing didn’t hand him any one of the remaining little snakes. She pa.s.sed them all to Muir.
After all of the little snakes entered the room, there were nine little snakes in Muir’s nest but only a pitiful one in Curtis’s.
Muir looked at the snake in Curtis’s nest and didn’t say anything about it. He said to Bai Qingqing, “I’ll warm them up right away.”
