Chapter 1267: Visiting the Fox Tribe (2)
Winston placed Bai Qingqing onto the floor and lowered his voice. “It seems we’ve gotten it right.”
Bai Qingqing felt a new bout of antic.i.p.ation and said softly, “You’re saying that the fox beastman is from this village?”
That was too much of a coincidence.
When the female in the house stopped crying, the fox tribal head came out once again, going straight to the point. “To tell you the truth, a litter of fox pups died recently. Due to the father’s neglect, the children all fell in the river and drowned to death. That male was chased out of the village, and I don’t know if he was the one who picked up your child.”
“It’s a pity Parker didn’t come.” Winston felt a little troubled. “He was the only one who smelled that male’s scent.”
Muir turned and looked around, turned into his human form, then said, “I’ll go bring him here right away. I should be able to come back in two days.”
They took two days traveling here. However, Muir was only planning on using two days for a two-way trip. It was clear how much of a rush it’d be.
Bai Qingqing frowned, walked up to Muir, took his hand, then said, “Alright, but don’t make it too tiring for yourself. You guys haven’t slept for two days and two nights. You must pay attention to get rest.”
Muir’s gaze turned warm. “I know.”
Only then did the tribal head throw a glance at Bai Qingqing, thinking that this was a female who cared for her mates. Maybe he could encourage his tribesmen to get close to her.
Muir flew away. The fox tribal head suddenly said politely, “Then, you guys can stay at our village for now.”
Winston knew that this male harbored other intentions, but he couldn’t bear to put Bai Qingqing through hards.h.i.+ps outside. He carried her up and gave a brief thanks.
Bai Qingqing didn’t think too much into it and went along with them into a gra.s.s hut not smaller than the one the tribal head lived in.
The gra.s.s hut was very clean, clearly lived in by someone recently. There were many wooden containers and also a faint medicinal scent in the air. Bai Qingqing immediately understood the ident.i.ty of this house’s owner.
“This is the house of the male who was chased out?”
The fox tribal head said, “That’s right. As he’s a doctor, he often returns home even after becoming mates with my mate to tidy these medicinal herbs.”
Bai Qingqing wanted to know what kind of beastman this doctor was. It concerned Right’s safety, after all. “What kind of person is he? As a doctor, he should be very gentle, right?”
The tribal head let out a snuff, and the unconcealed contempt on his face caused Bai Qingqing’s heart to rise.
It couldn’t be that he had a horrible character, right?
“He’s useless. If it wasn’t because his medical skills aren’t bad, my mate wouldn’t accept him and end up losing the only litter of children she had in five years,” the tribal head said coldly.
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. Thankfully, it was just a problem with his lack of capability. He was a father as well and should show more concern and love toward Right.
The tribal head realized that he had exposed his feelings and immediately restrained himself, saying politely and in a distant tone, “You guys can rest here. I’ll get people to send food over.”
“No need.” Winston immediately rejected the tribal head’s “kind intention.” “We have companions outside and don’t lack food.”
The tribal head didn’t say anything else. He nodded toward Winston and then turned to leave.
Bai Qingqing quickly took off the cloth covering her face, then took in deep breaths. “That was suffocating.”
Winston looked outside nervously, then carried her and entered the deepest part of the house. “We’re outside. Try not to show your face.”
“I know.” Bai Qingqing stuck out her tongue. “I only pulled it off after checking that there was no one opposite.”
Where would there be any females who would go to this extent in order to cut off connections with members of the opposite s.e.x? Although Winston had his guards up against the fox beastmen, not wanting for Bai Qingqing to gain more mates, his heart hurt a little when he heard this.
