Chapter 1265: Look for Another Method (2)
At this moment, Winston entered the kitchen with wet hair. He took a look at Bai Qingqing, who seemed as if she was at her wits’ end, and immediately said, “I’ve gathered a group to head to each fox village. We’ll definitely be able to find news of that fox beastman.”
Bai Qingqing’s eyes lit up, and she quickly got up and walked over to him, grabbing his hands and looking at him with glistening eyes. “I’ll go, too! Let’s set off right away!”
Winston frowned. Seeing that the weather seemed like it was going to clear up soon, he said, “Alright. But if you go, we’ll wait till the rain stops before we set off.”
“I’m fine! Let’s go right away!” Bai Qingqing pulled him, wanting to leave.
Parker was angered. He grabbed her by the waist and placed her on the stool. “Have your breakfast first!”
Bai Qingqing looked as she was sitting on pins, fidgeting non-stop. Winston said, “Be good. We’ll talk after you’re done eating.”
Only then did Bai Qingqing stop. She picked up dining utensils and started eating as if to fulfill a mission. Not caring if she was full or not, she put down her chopsticks after she had finished the food in her bowl.
“I’m done! Let’s go!”
Winston felt helpless and could only start preparing.
The weather worked in their favor. After they were done packing Bai Qingqing’s luggage, the rain stopped.
Curtis wasn’t able to go along on this trip. Because Winston had gathered eagle beastmen in order to ensure speed. There was no way Curtis would trust his life to his natural enemies.
Muir joined the group as well, being tasked with the responsibility of ferrying Winston and Bai Qingqing.
There were three leopard cubs, An’an, and Left to take care of, so Parker could only stay at home, sending the group off with a gaze filled with complaints.
They traveled through the day and night, arriving at their destination that would normally take three days in only two.
The eagle beastmen landed outside the borders of the fox tribe’s territory. Winston carried Bai Qingqing and jumped off from Muir’s back, saying apologetically, “The fox tribe’s village is right in front. To show our respect, we’ll have to walk over. I’m sorry that you’ll have to go through this hards.h.i.+p.”
The long travel over the two days didn’t make Bai Qingqing appear haggard. Instead, she looked energetic because she was hopeful. She waved her hand and said, “I’m fine, let’s hurry over.”
Winston took out the face mask he had prepared to cover half of her face before they headed for the fox village.
A “woof” suddenly rang out and then a few red foxes with long and slender figures darted out at the next instant.
Bai Qingqing was stunned. Weren’t they foxes? Why did they sound so much like dogs? Even wolves didn’t cry like this.
Winston walked at the very front and said with a sincere tone, “We hold no ill will. We’re here to look for someone. Can you allow us to go in and meet the tribal head?”
The four animal stripes on Winston’s face showed his capabilities, and no fox beastmen dared to offend him. Moreover, he was often out a.s.sociating with the small villages around. Therefore, many beastmen had an impression of the white tiger.
These few fox beastmen gathered into a circle and discussed for a while before one of them turned into his human form and said respectfully, “Sure. But we’d like these eagle beastmen to stay outside.”
If it was an ordinary beastmen, they’d at least inform their tribal head first. However, the other party was a king beastman, so they had to show him this respect.
Winston covered Bai Qingqing’s eyes without leaving a trace and said gratefully, “Thank you.”
He then said to the group of eagle beastmen behind him, “Go rest nearby and wait for my news.”
The fox beastman who spoke turned back into his beast form and then led Winston into the village. The remaining fox beastmen stood where they were, watching over the eagle beastmen.
In his beast form, Muir tried to follow after them but was stopped by these fox beastmen. His expression turned cold, not planning to back off. The atmosphere instantly tensed up.
“Hold on, he’s my mate. Let him come, too,” Bai Qingqing suddenly said.
