Chapter 1294: Arthur Returns Home (3)
“I’ve checked out the fox villages nearby and was planning to continue to search for medicine while looking for more villages. Now that you’re here, you can bring him back,” Harvey said as he walked up to the two foxes, stroking the little fox’s back with reluctance to see him leave.
“Howl~” The little fox turned his head and licked the back of Harvey’s hand, expressing his like for him. Harvey found it even harder to part with him.
It didn’t seem bad to be able to bring up a nest of children like this too.
Harvey suddenly wanted a nest of children of his own. He didn’t need much love from his mate. It’d be fine as long as he could bring up his children like he had taken care of the little fox.
He secretly threw a glance at Bai Qingqing, then turned his gaze away, smiling. He knew that was impossible.
However, if he looked for other females, he wouldn’t hold many expectations for the future anymore.
Therefore, this idea was immediately pushed back down to the bottom of his heart.
“Then, we won’t be intruding on you anymore.” Arthur suppressed his joy, put down the little fox, then looked at Right.
“Screech~” Right let out a cry and then ran toward him.
Arthur patted Right’s head with the unwillingness to part with him. He said gently, “Thank you for your company during this time. And…”
He looked toward Bai Qingqing and Muir, saying guiltily, “I’m sorry to have brought you guys trouble.”
Bai Qingqing stuck out her head from behind Muir’s back, grinning, and said, “It’s fine. We already found you guys when you started to develop the consciousness of escaping, anyway.”
Arthur broke out in a sweat. That was true. When he wasn’t trying to hide, things had been fine. However, when he noticed Bai Qingqing’s group goal, he was caught.
Arthur turned back into his beast form, picked the little fox up, then planned on leaving.
Muir said, “The distance from this place to your village isn’t short. It’d be too dangerous for you to go back with a child. I’ll get someone to accompany you.”
“Howl!” Arthur expressed his thanks.
Muir nodded and told him to wait here for a while. He then took Bai Qingqing’s hand and walked out.
Bai Qingqing asked, “Who are you going to ask to escort them?” She hadn’t seen Muir taking in any underlings.
“I have to teach Right to fly and can’t escort him personally. Let Parker go,” Muir said.
Bai Qingqing was rendered speechless. She felt that Parker would explode.
As expected, he erupted after finding out about Muir’s goal.
However, it was an important thing for Muir to teach Right to fly. He couldn’t do it in Muir’s stead. Winston had to manage the tribe. Curtis… He could be treated like air.
In the end, Parker still went off begrudgingly.
After roaming outside for an entire month, Arthur felt unsettled to be returning to the village once again.
“I’ll just see you to this place. I’ll be leaving!” Outside the village, Parker cleanly threw off the burden and turned around.
Arthur entered the village with the little fox by his side.
The fox tribal head was grinding stone tools outside his house when he saw Arthur and the little fox. He paused.
[Where is she?] Arthur asked.
The little fox next to him had already made his way happily to the fox tribal head, licking his leg.
The tribal head hadn’t expected Arthur to really find the child. He looked at him a little longer, feeling very surprised.
“In the house.”
Arthur nodded at him, suppressed his palpitating heart, then headed into the house.
The little fox dashed into the gra.s.s house before him. Before Arthur entered the house, he heard a familiar female voice.
The female then started crying. Arthur stood at the door quietly for a while, wiping off tears from the corners of his eyes, and said with a choking voice, “Can I come in?”
The female’s voice paused, then she spoke up, seemingly with a faint smile, “Come in.”
Arthur dashed into the gra.s.s house like the wind.
At the door, the tribal head smiled, then continued grinding his stone tool…
