Chapter 1271: Finding Leads
The awkwardness between them suddenly dissipated and Bai Qingqing pursed her lips, smiling, finding Winston, who was cold on the outside but was actually pa.s.sionate on the inside, quite fun too.
Winston had a strong body, and it felt quite comfortable to sit on his thigh. She found a more comfortable position and nestled there, looking very leisurely.
The male who brought food came by again. This time around, he was chased off by Winston before he managed to reach her.
At night, Bai Qingqing and Winston shared one bedding. It was a rare alone time for them.
The night was very quiet, so quiet that they could only hear the frogs from the river outside.
The temperature at night was cooler. Bai Qingqing nestled in Winston’s embrace, thought of Right, then let out a sigh.
“Don’t worry.” Winston wasn’t a sensitive person, but because of the spousal mark, he could immediately sense his mate’s feelings. He said, “I’ve already sent a few eagle beastmen to the fox villages in the vicinity to check for news. Even if this isn’t the right place, we can head straight for the next possible village.”
Bai Qingqing hugged him even tighter, saying gratefully, “Thank you.” Pausing for a moment, she rested her face on Winston’s scorching and tight chest and added, “It’s not just for this time. Thank you for what you’ve always done for me. I’m really… thankful.”
With her soft face on his chest, his heart took a quick leap. Winston suppressed his palpitating heart and smiled, pressing Bai Qingqing’s head tighter toward his chest.
“You don’t ever need to thank me.” Winston’s deep voice had a hint of oath as he spoke, “I feel very blissful to be able to do things for you.”
Bai Qingqing’s lips curled up slightly. She rested her head on his chest and steadily entered dreamland.
Two days later, Muir brought Parker to the fox village as planned.
After flying for four consecutive days without any rest, even someone as strong as Muir felt exhausted. His eyes were bloodshot, looking frightening.
Bai Qingqing walked over to help him. “Quickly go in and take a rest. Didn’t I tell you to pay attention to rest?”
Bai Qingqing’s words carried a hint of fury at the end.
However, Muir felt as if all the fatigue seemed to be cleansed by water. He said, “I’m not tired.”
However, his hoa.r.s.e voice exposed his fatigue. Bai Qingqing immediately pushed him into the house. “Go and sleep!”
Muir had initially wanted to follow Parker to ascertain the ident.i.ty of the fox beastman who had seen Right, but found it hard to reject his mate’s concern. He had no choice but to head toward the gra.s.s house.
In his beast form, Parker whiffed and looked toward the house at the side.
Bai Qingqing was elated. “Did you find out anything?”
Muir paused in his footsteps and turned to look at him.
Parker took big strides into the gra.s.s house, exhaled, then stood up and turned into his human form, saying excitedly, “To think it was this place! This house is filled with the scent of that fox beastman! It’s definitely right!”
Overjoyed, Bai Qingqing grabbed Winston’s arm. “That’s great!”
He patted her shoulder and said, “I’ll go ask the fox tribal head right away.”
“No need. I’m already here.” The fox tribal head walked over in huge strides upon being mentioned. Malcolm, who had been hanging out nearby during these two days, was also following behind him.
Bai Qingqing immediately asked, “Where did he go? Where can we find him?”
At the mention of that beastman, the tribal head’s face turned cold. “There’s still one more child from amongst the litter who fell into the river and whose corpse hasn’t been found. He probably went to search along the river.”
After saying that, he laughed coldly. “So what if he continues with the search? With so many days having pa.s.sed, the corpse has probably long been eaten up.”
“My condolences.” Bai Qingqing nodded, but she felt elated inside.
That guy had headed downstream along the river. This meant that they’d be able to find him if they went down the river!
