The two of them hugged tightly for a while, neither of them unwilling to part. In the end, Bai Qingqing’s nose suddenly twitched and she pushed his face away. “Did you eat octopus?”

“So that was an octopus? I had a few skewers before I came. The taste is a little strong. You’ll definitely like it.” Parker said excitedly, “I’ll bring you to eat it tomorrow.”

“Wait, how did you get to eat? You didn’t steal it, right?” Bai Qingqing looked at him with a gaze filled with doubt.

Hearing his mate’s tone, Parker knew that she didn’t like his “stealing” behavior. Therefore, he said, “Of course not. I bought them with paper.”

“What paper? You brought my wallet?” Bai Qingqing felt pleasantly surprised. There were still 40 to 50 yuan inside.

Parker’s brows fell a little. He took off the animal skin bag that he had tied to his waist, opening it while saying, “I didn’t. I bought it with paper I picked off from the ground. Paper gets wet easily when it rains. I only brought your comb, mirror, and nail clipper.”

As he said this, he poured out everything on the bed, releasing crisp clanking sounds.

Bai Qingqing only took it that Parker was lucky to have picked up some money and didn’t doubt his words. She reached for the switch to turn on the light. After the light was turned on and she turned her head, she felt she was going blind.

There was a small pile of green crystals on the bed, making up to at least four to five hundred in number.

She gasped, her face filled with disbelief. “Where did you get these from?”

“I hunted for them.” At the mention of hunting, an excited gleam flashed in Parker’s eyes. He felt a little proud about it, too.

Bai Qingqing shook her head. “No, that’s impossible. It has only been six days.”

Parker no longer had any animal stripes on his face, either. He had clearly become a stripeless beast. However, it was said that herbivorous behemoths that had green crystals inside them were a lot more difficult to deal with than carnivorous ones. Even Curtis said that he’d usually try not to offend them and would only hunt one when required.

“What six days?” Stunned, Parker’s voice turned a little aggrieved. “It has been six years. I’ve been waiting for you over there for six years.”

Bai Qingqing instantly felt that all the blood in her body had turned cold. She no longer felt agitated at the sight of the green crystals and only felt heartache and guilt.

“I’m sorry, I didn’t know that you guys spent so much time there.” Bai Qingqing knelt and pounced into Parker’s chest. When she blinked, two scorching drops of tears fell onto the leopard-print clothing, splattering and then landing onto the bedsheets.

Parker was stunned. “You don’t know? Time over here…”

“Six days.” Bai Qingqing nestled against his chest, saying, “In another half a day, it’d have been seven days.”

There was no pattern to the time flow in both worlds. On the first occasion, she had transmigrated and spent five years there. But when she came back, the time in the modern world hadn’t changed. On the second occasion, she summoned Curtis and Muir over. The time was in sync. However, things were flipped over this time around. Six days had pa.s.sed here while six years had pa.s.sed over there.

The two worlds were likely to be not connected at all, thus explaining the lack of pattern. She had only gone over by accident, leading to this series of changes.

Bai Qingqing felt extremely thankful. Thank goodness she had managed to wait until Parker arrived. Thank goodness the time flow in this world was slower. If she were to age and die, with only a few days pa.s.sing in the beastmen world, then it’d really be despairing.

Bai Qingqing held in with her sobbing and asked in a soft voice, “What about the children? Where’s Winston?”

“Uhh…” Parker looked embarra.s.sed, only saying after his mate asked him anxiously, “To become stronger faster, I never returned to the tribe after leaving… Hasn’t Winston come over yet? He should have leveled up earlier than me.”

He didn’t dare to continue. Also thinking of the same possibility, Bai Qingqing’s face turned pale.
