Chapter 170: Parker Bit Curtis
Parker bit on the snake’s tail and dragged hard, wanting to tear him apart. Remaining solidly rooted in his original spot, Curtis slowly released his upper body and transformed into half-human form.
Parker’s ears shook, and out of his instinct to escape danger, he wanted to run away speedily. But at the thought of how Qingqing had been eaten by the snake beastman, Parker lost all rationality, and he now bit Curtis even more ferociously.
Curtis grasped the leopard’s neck with his hand, forcing him to let go of his bite.
“Roar—” Parker winced in pain as he gazed at Curtis with hatred.
Curtis said coldly, “She’s perfectly fine.”
“Roar?” The leopard’s pupils turned from vertical slits into pretty circles, gazing hopefully at the snake.
Curtis let go of him and revealed Bai Qingqing.
Deep in her slumber, Bai Qingqing’s hands were clasped together resting beside her cheek. Her curly brownish-black hair had turned wet from sweat and was sticking to her flushed face. She seemed to be sleeping soundly.
“Roar—” Parker no longer appeared as aggressive as he did earlier. He transformed into a human and crouched next to Bai Qingqing, sticking out a finger and gently poked at her cheek. He said in a dazed manner, “So adorable…”
The snake moved his body again, and Bai Qingqing’s body was wrapped up again. Curtis said, “Don’t interrupt her sleep.”
“I know.” Parker turned quiet. As he was getting up, he glanced at the two rows of b.l.o.o.d.y teeth marks on the snake’s body, before walking out of the bedroom.
Having been through this roller coaster of emotions, Parker walked outside to calm himself down. After breathing in some fresh air, his mind was much clearer now.
There was a deep pit under the window, which he had spent a night digging. He caught sight of it and decided right away to destroy the evidence. He was just about to fill the hole with soil when he saw the sh.o.r.eline and hesitated.
As the volume of rainfall this year was particularly high, the old willow trees by the river already had their tree trunks half-submerged in water. Even the newly planted th.o.r.n.y fruit plant was almost fully covered by the water.
Parker transformed into a leopard and jogged to the th.o.r.n.y fruit plant. Using his claws, he speedily dug out the th.o.r.n.y fruit plant and planted it in the pit outside the window.
Bai Qingqing had no idea how long she had been sleeping for. When she regained consciousness, she felt so tired she thought she was going to die, unable to even move her fingers. After panting heavily for a while, she finally let out a feeble voice.
“Ssss—” Curtis instantly transformed his upper body into human form, revealing Bai Qingqing.
Although Curtis’s body was cold, the spot within his tail was airtight; the air within had turned warm due to the human’s body temperature. As he released his tail, cold air entered immediately, making Bai Qingqing s.h.i.+ver instantly.
Very quickly, a thick piece of animal skin was laid over Bai Qingqing’s body. Right away, Bai Qingqing could hear Parker’s delighted voice. “Qingqing, you’re finally awake. I was worried sick.”
“How long have I slept?” The minute Bai Qingqing spoke, she realized her voice was awfully raspy. She cleared her throat and said feebly, “I’m so tired…”
“You and Curtis have been mating in the house for a day and a night, then you went on to sleep for another day and night. You must be famished. I have prepared the food. I’ll bring it over to you right now.” Parker immediately ran off after speaking.
There was the sound of someone chopping firewood in the main room, followed by the sound of something knocking against rocks.
Bai Qingqing was shocked. d.a.m.n. One day and one night?
Bai Qingqing wanted to look at Curtis, who she was leaning against, but because she was completely devoid of strength, she only succeeded in rolling her eyes around. “Curtis…”
