Chapter 1241: Temporary Stay at Rock Forest

The rock forest had steep cliffs, and few plants took root there. Parker had no choice but to tie Bai Qingqing to himself using vines, and only then managed to climb up the highest cliff.

By the time they finally reached the peak of the giant stone cliff, Parker had turned into a dead exhausted leopard. With a large bundle before his chest and Bai Qingqing on his back, he was too tired to move anymore.

“Hey, let go of me first.” Feeling both amus.e.m.e.nt and heartache, Bai Qingqing wiped his sweat with her hand.

Coo coo—

Several familiar bird sounds suddenly rang from the cliff. Bai Qingqing was invigorated. “Muir?”

An eagle’s head poked out from the rock fissure, delight evident in his eyes at the sight of her.


“Shh! Stop screeching!” Bai Qingqing said as she tugged on the vines. “You get thirsty from screeching, and you dare not drink water.”

Muir then shut his beak. He had managed to persist for over a month. A short seven days was nothing to him.

Moreover, with the heavy dew at night, the tiny water droplets gathered on his beak would prevent him from dying of thirst.

This round of egg incubation could be described as “comfortable”. The only thing lacking was that his mate wasn’t by his side.

Now that Qingqing was here, Muir felt that everything was perfect.

Parker finally steadied his breathing and got to his feet with Bai Qingqing on his back, before untying the vines.

“How’s the incubation going? Can I take a look?” Bai Qingqing ran excitedly towards him.

Muir had settled down in a narrow spot between two rocks, with rocks blocking the front, back, left, and right. Also, he had camouflaged himself. If he hadn’t taken the initiative to stick out his head, Bai Qingqing might not necessarily have found him.

This was, after all, not the Sea Cliff, where he would have protection from his fellow tribesmen. Muir dared not construct a nest by the cliff in a conspicuous fas.h.i.+on. He wasn’t afraid for himself, but he feared that when the little eagles who couldn’t fly were left by themselves, they would be in danger.

Hence, this well-hidden spot would be the little eagles’ home before they learned how to fly.

Bai Qingqing pried the feathers on Muir’s abdomen away, wanting to take a peek, when Muir sank his body and pinned her hand down.

“Hey!” Bai Qingqing glared at him. “Fine, I won’t look. Why are you pinning me down?”

The word “pin” touched a certain nerve in Muir, making him gulp down his saliva, suddenly feeling parched. Indeed, he required water?

Bai Qingqing retracted her hand, imprints showing on her palms. She showed her palms to him and complained, “Look, this is all thanks to you.”

In the males’ eyes, females were pet.i.te and exquisite. Bai Qingqing’s palm was fair and smooth like jade, making the red imprints particularly striking.

Although Muir knew that it didn’t hurt, he couldn’t help feeling heartache for Bai Qingqing. He edged his beak closer to her and gently grazed it against the reddened spots.

This brought about an itchy sensation, making Bai Qingqing retract her hand with a giggle.

Using rocks, Parker had constructed a simple triangular tent beside and laid tree leaves over the top.

“Qingqing, come over here. What do you think of this tent?” Parker shouted as he crouched on the top of the tent.

Bai Qingqing looked up and was unable to open her eyes due to the scorching sun. Her skin also felt unbearably hot.

Who cared what sort of tent it was. So long as it could shelter her from the sun.

Bai Qingqing got up and felt her way to him, squinting her eyes under the strong glare of the sun.

As it was a steep cliff right beside, Parker felt worried looking at her. He immediately jumped down from the top of the tent and carried Bai Qingqing into the tent.

Muir twisted his head and looked over. But even with his neck twisted nearly into a fried dough twist, all he could see was one corner of the tent.

He couldn’t help but suspect that Parker had deliberately designed it this way. Hateful!
