Muir carried Bai Qingqing and Left as he followed tightly behind Parker.

They said that the weather in June was like a child’s face, changing without notice. This applied to the beastmen world too.

It was late in the morning, but the sun wasn’t hot. The fog in the mountains became thicker and the strong winds weren’t even able to disperse them. The pressure was so low that it was hard to breathe.

Bai Qingqing’s curly hair was blown messily by the wind. She put her hands to her chest and said worriedly, “I hope it doesn’t rain!”

Not long after she spoke, an exploding thunder suddenly rang out in the sky, and heavy rain covered the mountains and wilderness.

Bai Qingqing looked toward the sky with a stoned expression, putting up a middle finger.


Another erupting thunder came down nearby. Bai Qingqing quickly hugged Left to shelter him from the rain.

Parker came running back. He turned into his human form and said, “This won’t do. You’ll fall sick from getting drenched in the rain. We’ll need to find a place to take shelter.”

“I’m fine. You should hurry up and continue searching. Otherwise, it’ll be too late,” Bai Qingqing said anxiously. “The rain will wash off the scent. Can you still smell it?”

Parker fell silent for an instant, then said to Muir, “Bring them somewhere to take shelter from the rain. I’ll come to find you guys later.”

Muir nodded. Then, Parker instantly turned into his beast form and ran off.

The rain became heavier and big droplets of rain hit Bai Qingqing’s skin so hard that it hurt. Her exposed skin was even showing a hint of redness.

By the time they found a cave, Bai Qingqing’s hair was completely wet. Left, whom she had been s.h.i.+elding, also had half his body wet. His feathers stuck onto his body, making him look like a drenched chicken.

Muir wiped off the water on her face and asked, “Are you cold? I’ll start a fire right away.”

“En.” However, Bai Qingqing didn’t pay any heed to herself. Her mind was only on taking care of Left. “His feathers inside are drenched as well. Let’s get the fire up quickly.”

As she said this, she carried Left into the deepest part of the cave.

The cold wind kept blowing into the cave and making sounds like a natural flute. Rainwater also blew in occasionally.

Muir immediately went out to pick firewood. He didn’t dare to go too far away, and it took him a lot of effort before the fire was started up.

“Screech~” Left s.h.i.+vered as he tried to walk into the fire. Before he got into the flames, he was carried back by his mommy and could only watch.

This was the first time he saw fire. He only knew that with fire, his body would warm up. That orange-yellow color looked very warm. If only he could squat inside surrounded by the fire.

Left craved to do that innocently.

Although Muir had been moving around amidst the wind and the rain, his feathers didn’t get wet. He’d dry just from shaking off the layer of water on the surface.

He sat down next to Bai Qingqing, turning one arm into a wing, then embraced her s.h.i.+vering form. He said reproachfully, “It’s all my fault that you have to go through this hards.h.i.+p.”

Bai Qingqing leaned into his embrace, feeling as if she had entered a furnace, and her body instantly warmed up.

“Why is it your fault? I only have myself to blame.” Bai Qingqing was feeling down. If she didn’t let Muir stay behind, the little eagles wouldn’t be exposed to such danger, right?

If Bai Qingqing knew that the little eagles had encountered danger because they wanted to find the nest they had stayed in before, she’d probably feel worse. However, she no longer blamed herself.

Predators in Sea Cliff would attack young eagles. They were all experienced hunters who were much more dangerous than necrophagous eagles. It was extremely normal for one or two young eagles to die from each nest.

In the beastmen world, the males who could live until they turned of age were all lucky individuals in the natural world.

After knowing Bai Qingqing’s att.i.tude, Muir heaved a sigh of relief and consoled her, “No one is to be blamed. This is heaven’s will. Right is still alive, and we’ll definitely be able to find him.”

Bai Qingqing smiled and nodded vigorously. “En!”
