Chapter 1406: An Accident in the Wildlife Zoo (2)
The pa.s.sengers in the tourist vehicle instantly fell silent. All that could be heard were gasps. The atmosphere was incredibly tense.
In the next moment, an even more agonizing cry pierced into everyone’s ears like a blunt and rusty knife. Shrieks rang out all over the tourist vehicle.
Being held in Curtis’s arms, Bai Qingqing imagined what was going on back there and turned pale.
She shoved Parker’s head and said, “Go help.”
Parker scoffed and looked coldly at the car behind. He said, “I’m not going. If I do, I’ll be regarded as a freak.”
Hence, Bai Qingqing stopped talking. She wanted to turn back and look, but Curtis refused to loosen his grip on her. Hence, she could only speculate from others’ expressions.
The man’s agonizing cries had long stopped, but the low growls of wild animals continued.
The tourist vehicle only started moving again after waiting for a full five minutes.
Curtis also loosened his iron-like grip on Bai Qingqing. She turned her head and saw the car behind shaking abnormally. The gla.s.s windows were covered with blood, making it hard to see inside.
Bai Qingqing immediately understood that there was no hope for the people inside.
People were surrounding the car, probably trying to grab the leopard inside. The tourist vehicle had already driven far away. After making a turn, that car disappeared from the sights of the tourist vehicle pa.s.sengers.
Bai Qingqing hunched her back and quietly leaned against Curtis’s chest.
While he gently patted her shoulder, Parker suddenly said in a nonchalant tone, “What’s there to be scared of? There are so many humans, anyway. One or two fewer wouldn’t make a difference.”
Bai Qingqing immediately shot him a glare. Thankfully, Parker’s voice was soft and the one seated beside him was Winston. No outsiders had heard what he said.
Bai Qingqing said, “I’m not sympathizing with that human. I’m just worried about that leopard.”
Parker froze. “Why? One who manages to survive here shouldn’t be dumb. When it sees that there are so many humans around, it probably wouldn’t attack.”
Bai Qingqing shook her head. “Since it has bitten a human to death, it will generally be killed humanely.”
The four males were stunned and turned back to look in unison.
Parker sneered. “Humanely, huh.”
“That can’t be helped. Although it’s not the animal’s fault,” Bai Qingqing said helplessly.
Parker’s brows creased deeply and he fell silent.
Because of that accident, the wildlife zoo was closed with immediate effect. The tourist vehicle they were traveling in headed straight out.
Bai Qingqing was no longer in the mood for sightseeing, either. Seeing that it was getting late, they went home. She packed her luggage and placed the money for gla.s.s on the bedside cabinet, then took a bus to school.
In a bank near the school, Bai Qingqing taught her spouses how to use the bank card, before distributing the four cards to each of them despite still feeling worried. She feared that they would be duped, or they would finish using the money all at once.
But other than Muir, probably none of them wanted to use this card.
When they got home, Curtis went to his own room and started studying the book Bai Qingqing bought for him today.
The other three sat on the sofa and watched TV in the living room.
Indeed, the accident at the zoo was broadcasted on the news. In the end, that leopard was carried out of the car. None of the family of three inside the car had survived. But this wasn’t what the four beastmen were concerned about.
What they cared about was whether this leopard was dead or alive, seeing that things indeed weren’t looking good for it and it wasn’t moving at all.
“It’s still breathing. Probably knocked out by some anesthetic needle.” Parker was the most concerned among them four, and he was squatting on the coffee table with his gaze fixed upon the TV screen.
“What are you thinking of doing?” Winston asked in his deep voice.
Parker curled his lips. “Haven’t you already guessed?”
Muir and Winston were rendered speechless. Parker said, “Find a place and raise it. If we can’t afford to raise it, at most we’ll eat it.”
