Chapter 183: Returning to the Camel Hump Valley to Seek Treatment
“Huh?” Bai Qingqing looked at Curtis, her expression a little silly.
Curtis rubbed Bai Qingqing on the head, bent over to grab onto Parker’s two front legs with one hand and two hind legs with the other, then lifted him and headed toward the bedroom.
Bai Qingqing didn’t have the time to bicker with them. She quickly used her hands to support Parker’s back, sending him back to his pile of gra.s.s.
“Parker won’t die, right?” Bai Qingqing spoke in a sobbing tone.
Winston followed them but stopped at the door, saying, “When I saved him, he was still awake.”
“Let’s go and look for a doctor.” Bai Qingqing grabbed onto Curtis’s hand, then looked toward Winston after saying that. “Do you know where to look for a doctor?”
Winston looked around at the bedroom quietly, then said, “All doctors are from the ape tribe. They won’t treat males easily. Moreover…”
“Moreover what?” When Bai Qingqing heard that doctors were all from the ape tribe, she had a bad feeling about it and looked at Winston, feeling unsettled.
“Rosa has been very close to the ape tribe recently. As long as she gives the word, no doctor will be willing to treat him,” Winston said.
Bai Qingqing’s hope was destroyed, and she immediately flared up. “You’ve been harmed by the ape king, so why is she still on good terms with the ape tribe?”
Winston let out a stifled laugh. “She doesn’t have a four-striped beastman as her mate, so there’s no conflict no matter who she gets along with. Her four-striped beastman father is just someone for her to make use of. Her father believes in her words over mine.”
“That’s too much!” Bai Qingqing was so angry she hammered her fist onto a patch of gra.s.s.
Curtis turned his head to look at Bai Qingqing, wearing an indifferent expression. He also felt the same calmness he wore on his face. His emotions were never stirred in matters that didn’t concern Bai Qingqing.
Curtis rubbed Bai Qingqing’s head and consoled her, saying, “It’ll be fine. He hasn’t died and will wake up. Don’t cry.”
Bai Qingqing didn’t want to cry, but when he heard Curtis say that, her chin shrunk back uncontrollably. She suddenly recalled something and her eyes lit up. “Oh right, there’s a doctor at the Camel Hump Valley. I’ll go and look for him.”
Saying that Bai Qingqing stood up. Curtis also stood up, hugging Bai Qingqing in his arms. She at Curtis’s skirt and tugged at it, saying anxiously, “Quickly transform into your snake form.”
The corners of Curtis’s lips curled up, and he hugged Bai Qingqing with both arms, leaving her to tug at his skirt. It was only after Bai Qingqing had tugged off his skirt that he took on his snake form and slithered outside.
Winston made way for him and said to the two of them, “I’ll stay here and keep an eye on him.”
“Thank you,” Bai Qingqing said thankfully.
Curtis frowned and pa.s.sed by Winston as he headed out.
During the rainy season, Camel Hump Valley was very muddy. The muddy water from the mountains on both sides flowed down quickly like small streams. Although the river water flowed rapidly, it was still unavoidable that the water level surged rapidly. Only a small half of the remaining ground was left, and it was covered with drowned bugs.
The snake beastman’s scent attracted quite a number of beastmen. At the sight of a four-striped beastman, their bared fangs returned to their mouths, and those with females in their homes closed their doors with a bang.
Curtis s.h.i.+elded Bai Qingqing from the rain with a big leaf and swam to the door of a wooden house.
As the wooden house was soaked in water for prolonged periods of time, there was a lot of fungus growing on it and small trellises crawling around. The house was very quiet as if there was no one inside.
“Bang bang bang!” Bai Qingqing banged on the door, calling out loudly. “Harvey, are you in?”
“Howl—” A leopard’s howl rang out in the house, and the door was quickly opened from the inside, with half a leopard head peeping out. The light yellow-colored eyes looked upward and were immediately stunned.
