Chapter 145: The Cry of a Bear Beastman
The lobsters in the basket climbed up, making “thud thud thud” sounds as they moved, and it looked like they were about to overturn it.
Bai Qingqing quickly poked those lobsters back down.
Parker was speechless.
Cortis was speechless.
Meeting their astonished gazes, Bai Qingqing laughed dryly. “Hur hur hur…”
Bai Qingqing now recalled that Eve frequently used a rattan basket to bring her leopard cubs out to play in the mountains, but she didn’t give this too much thought back then. She was surprised that this tiny detail implicated the customs in the beastman’s world.
“Stop poking it…” Parker could sense the vibration in the basket. His hands shook a little, and as he lowered his head and saw the lobsters in the carrier used for cubs, gooseb.u.mps rose all over his body.
Parker was about to pour out the lobsters from the basket, when Bai Qingqing hurriedly held it down and said, “Let’s just put the lobsters in there for a while. After we’ve picked enough lobsters, we’ll pour them out at home. It’s fine.”
“But…” Parker gazed at his surroundings. It was a rare sunny day, and the beastmen had all come out, but they hadn’t noticed them for the time being.
“We’ll be ridiculed by others,” Parker said worriedly.
Bai Qingqing pouted.
Cortis ruffled his hand through Bai Qingqing’s fringe that had been made messy by the wind and said indulgently, “If you wish to use it, just use it. No need to care about how others will look at you.”
Before the anxious Parker could speak, he heard Bai Qingqing say in a soft voice, “Forget it, gossip is a fearful thing.”
It wasn’t that Bai Qingqing was making a concession. Lobsters were living creatures, after all. This was probably the equivalent of people in the modern ages putting their dogs in baby prams. But then again, dogs were human’s best friends, so it was perhaps common for dog lovers to do this. However, if you place a bunch of lobsters in a baby’s pram…
It was a pretty scary thought.
Parker instantly ran back and brought over a stone basin. “Alright, I’ll go and catch lobsters now. Qingqing, don’t move about. Be careful of their pinches.”
“It’s okay, I’ve been pinched so many times I’m experienced now,” Bai Qingqing said cheerfully, bending over and looking for lobsters.
Lobsters weren’t on beastmen’s menu as they had little meat and tough sh.e.l.ls, so eating river prawns was preferable to eating lobsters. Hence, Bai Qingqing and her family’s act of catching the lobsters garnered the beastmen’s attention very quickly.
As there was a four-striped snake beastman amongst them, the other beastmen only dared to look from afar and dared not get near. By now, Cortis was famous for being protective of his female.
A bear beastman stared for a good while and finally couldn’t resist getting near.
“Bai Qingqing, why are you catching lobsters?” Tony asked, scratching his fluffy head.
Upon hearing his voice, Bai Qingqing straightened her body. When she saw that it was Tony, she greeted him with a smile. “Ah, it’s you, Tony. I’m catching them to eat.”
Tony didn’t register anything the female said. He was stunned the moment he looked at the female’s face. His hand was placed behind his head, and his body was completely frozen.
So, so, so, so beautiful…
Other than these words, Tony couldn’t hear anything else. He felt like he had sunk into fluffy clouds, his body feeling so light that he might fly any moment.
But suddenly, Tony’s body shook. He felt an icy-cold and stiff hand land on him, causing him to s.h.i.+ft his gaze. He found himself looking into a pair of murderous blood-red eyes.
Cortis, standing behind Bai Qingqing, was staring mercilessly at the bear beastman gazing dreamily at his female.
Cortis had only s.h.i.+fted his tail a little, and Tony seemed to instantly recover the ability to move now. He turned around and started running, like a rat being chased after by a cat, crying in fear as he turned around. “Oh—”
Can you imagine what a bear crying in fear sounds like? It’s like a young lady’s delicate voice that had its pitch lowered. It sounded like that voice was forcefully made to sound like the deep and masculine voice of a male.
It made one’s ears feel like vomiting.
