Chapter 1259: Searching for Right (2)

This place was too barren, and there were almost no animals to be seen. The little eagle shouldn’t be in danger of being picked up by a hunting animal.

Muir took a look at his legs. He recalled that the stomach of the necrophagous eagle he had stomped through just now had no food in it.

But this could only prove that Right hadn’t been eaten by that necrophagous eagle. Other necrophagous eagles might have attacked them, grabbed Right, then flew off.

Muir didn’t move even after a long time. His pose was upright, but he somehow emitted a strong feeling of grief.

In the end, he could only return to the top of the cliff with the few feathers in his mouth.

“Did you find Right?” When Bai Qingqing heard the sound, she immediately looked over. Seeing that Muir had a few feathers in his beak and there were no signs of Right either on his back or claws, her body suddenly felt weak.

Thankfully, Parker was standing behind her. He held her and asked worriedly, “Qingqing?”

Bai Qingqing shook her head and took the few arm-long feathers from Muir’s beak. She opened her mouth but didn’t manage to say anything. She shut her eyes and put the two feathers close to her face, a row of tears quickly moistening her face.

Parker carried her up horizontally, looked at Muir, then said, “How is it? Where… is Right?” He forced himself to swallow back the word corpse. He didn’t dare to agitate Qingqing anymore.

Muir said with a grim expression, “I didn’t find him.”

Bai Qingqing thought of something and her tears flowed even more fiercely. However, Parker became spirited, shaking her, and said, “It’s a good thing that he wasn’t found. It means there’s a chance he’s still alive. Let’s continue the search.”

“En,” Bai Qingqing replied with a choking voice.

Bai Qingqing and Parker wanted to head down to look for Right. Muir was unable to just sit there and wait, wanting to go along. None of them felt a.s.sured to leave Left here by himself, so they could only make the exception and bring him down the stone cliff.

Muir first brought Bai Qingqing and Left down, pointing to the gra.s.s patch where Right had landed on.

“Right fell here?” The tears on Bai Qingqing’s face had dried up, leaving behind faint traces, and she felt a piercing pain when the wind blew on them.

“En,” Muir replied with a deep voice.

Bai Qingqing wiped her tears and walked beside the gra.s.s patch that was so tall it reached her chest. She forced herself to raise her spirits to look for leads, not caring about the piercing itch she felt when the gra.s.s p.r.i.c.ked her.

After a while, Parker came down. He immediately sniffed out a lead.

“A beastman came here before!” Parker kept his head to the ground and suddenly said.

Bai Qingqing opened her eyes wide. “A beastman? Did he bring Right away? Do you know that beastman?”

Muir also felt hopeful and stared at him.

Parker shook his head. He crouched on the ground and sniffed as he took a few steps, then saying with certainty, “He was the one who took Right away. It’s a fox beastman.”

“Fox beastman?” Bai Qingqing was stunned. There didn’t seem to be any fox beastmen in the tribe.

Muir said, “There’s a fox tribe about three days’ flight away from our village. This is the closest one to us. There are definitely a lot more in further places.”

“Why would a fox beastman come here?” Bai Qingqing felt perplexed, but her brows relaxed slightly. “It’s fine if it’s a beastman. Beastmen won’t eat other beastmen, right?”

Parker immediately chipped in, “There’s sufficient food now, so that’ll definitely not happen. Moreover, the beastman couldn’t have been hunting in this desolate place. Qingqing, don’t be worried.”

The bird who lived in a desolate place (Muir) threw him a cold glance.

Bai Qingqing felt a lot more at ease. She grabbed Parker’s hand and pleaded, “Let’s quickly give chase. He isn’t from our place and might end up getting too far away.”

“Alright.” Parker agreed without any hesitation. He quickly took off his animal skin skirt and handed it to Bai Qingqing, then turned into his leopard form and started to trace the scent.
