Chapter 1201: Delivery Plan (1)
Muir hovered high up in the skies with a captured prey. This was a prey he had flown a great distance to capture for his spouse to consume.
Amid the dense foliage, Muir caught a glimpse of the sprinting Parker through the slim cracks.
What was Parker doing out here when it was his turn to hunt today?
Muir instinctively sensed that it had to do with Qingqing, so he turned around and followed him.
The two beasts, one in the skies and one on the ground, arrived outside of a cave simultaneously.
Parker saw Muir when he raised his head. He sneezed and, with a wary expression, walked into the cave.
The female’s pleasant soft laughter resounded throughout the cave, accompanied by the cracking sounds of burning from all around. Parker let down his guard momentarily and opened his mouth to let out a howl.
Bai Qingqing was drawing circles with a piece of firewood in her hand and teasing An’an, when she heard Parker’s voice, turning her head in surprise. “Parker?”
Parker froze momentarily at the marvelous scenery in the cave before his attention was attracted by his mate’s laughter.
He quickened his pace and leaped to Bai Qingqing’s side in a few moves, nearly jumping into the fire, before halting next to her side and excitedly jumping up and down.
Bai Qingqing giggled and was about to turn her head when she saw a human figure. “Muir, you’re here too?”
“Mm,” Muir responded. Gazing at his spouse up ahead, his footsteps involuntarily quickened, his heart directly flying to her side.
Winston said, “Just nice that the food is brought here. Qingqing, you can have your lunch here today.”
“Okay!” Bai Qingqing responded happily. She was a tad afraid of returning to her familiar home, for the scent of her little snakes would linger everywhere there. In a foreign environment, she would be able to relax a little.
Upon hearing this, before Muir reached the place his heart was at, he reversed to head out to hunt for food. Despite the helpless feeling in his heart, there was a smile at the corner of his lips as he quickened his pace out of the cave.
Muir was in charge of handling the food. On the other hand, Parker, who was familiar with cooking, found all sorts of condiments in the interim, and also headed home to retrieve the salt.
Very quickly, the aroma of roasted food permeated throughout the cave.
Watching as the food turned alluring bit by bit, Bai Qingqing was particularly looking forward to it. Without waiting for the meat to cook thoroughly, she reached out a hand.
“Tsk~ ouch!” The moment Bai Qingqing’s hand came in contact with the meat, she shrunk it back.
Winston smiled. With a hand s.h.i.+elding An’an, he reached out with his other hand to yank off a roasted leg and wrapped it in a washed tree leaf, before handing it to her.
“Be careful,” cautioned Winston.
Bai Qingqing said, “Heh, thanks.”
Before her smile vanished, she felt someone pinch her chin. Looking towards the owner of the hand, she saw Parker.
“What are you doing!” With her chin gripped, Bai Qingqing murmured incoherently. She glared at him, then glanced towards the roasted meat, clearly drooling for it.
Parker grinned and said joyfully, “You’ve become chubbier. After feeding you for three months, you’ve finally become chubby again.”
Bai Qingqing slapped Parker’s hand away. If this was in the past, she would definitely be annoyed to hear that. Now, having realized that it was truly not an easy feat to grow fatter here, she no longer felt that skinny people who never seemed to grow fat no matter how much they ate were punch-worthy.
After finally shaking off Parker’s meddling hand, Bai Qingqing took a bite of the meat and, after blowing upon it, fed it to An’an.
An’an was very responsive towards food. She immediately opened her mouth and ate what was fed to her. Her pink and tender little mouth tried hard to chew, looking adorable as a child would at long last.
With Winston and Parker by each side of Bai Qingqing, Muir could only sit opposite of her and wasn’t able to help her with anything. He merely sat there quietly, fetching some firewood from time to time.
He was adding firewood into the fire when he suddenly heard Winston say, “Seems like you’ve almost fully recovered. You should be going into heat soon.”
