Chapter 184: He’ll Live
“Harvey?” Bai Qingqing called out tentatively.
The door closed again with a thud. A series of clanging and thumping sounds could be heard before silence fell over the house. The door was then flung open once more.
Harvey smoothed out his fur before opening the door. He was shocked to see Bai Qingqing again. “Bai Qingqing?” He took a glance at the beastman hugging her and finally managed to confirm her ident.i.ty.
Bai Qingqing went straight to the point as she didn’t have the energy to make small talk with Harvey. “Parker’s injured. Please quickly take a look at him.”
Harvey didn’t ask further and agreed readily. “Okay.”
The peacefulness outside caused the females hiding in their homes to not feel as scared. A daring female stuck her head out the window and exclaimed, “Hey, isn’t that the snake beastman who said he’d take Bai Qingqing away? Is that Bai Qingqing he’s hugging?”
This female was immediately pulled back by the other females in the house.
Before long, Bai Qingqing and her companions arrived at the City of Beastmen. As a doctor, the most important thing to Harvey right now was saving Parker. He rushed into the bedroom out of habit.
Cortis clenched his tail and nearly rushed forward.
Harvey quickly carried out a physical examination on Parker, checking his pupils and listening for his heartbeat. He said, “He’ll live. He’ll definitely recover after sleeping for two days.”
The wariness in Bai Qingqing’s eyes was clear as she looked at Harvey while listening to his diagnosis. “Really?”
Harvey smiled and turned to look at Bai Qingqing. His eyes flashed with lifelessness before he said awkwardly, “Males aren’t as delicate as females. He’ll probably live since he didn’t suffer any fatal injuries.”
Now that she had received some consolation, Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief and replied, “Give me some medicine to treat external wounds, then.”
“Okay. I’ll go get them for you.”
“Thank you for your hard work,” Bai Qingqing said gratefully as she stroked the leopard’s head.
After Harvey left, Cortis wrapped his arms around Bai Qingqing’s waist and rubbed his palms against her abdomen. “You’re starving. I’ll head out to hunt.”
Bai Qingqing then recalled that she had been hungry since that morning as she was waiting for Parker to return home. However, now that he had suffered serious injuries and was unconscious, she didn’t have much of an appet.i.te either.
With his arms still wrapped around Bai Qingqing, Cortis glanced sideways at Vincent.
Vincent immediately said, “I’ll go hunt.”
“No need. Help me guard her,” Cortis said. She was his female, so he naturally had to feed her himself. Parker couldn’t be depended on right now, and he would rather not have food from an outsider.
Cortis pulled away from Bai Qingqing and adjusted her animal skin clothes before slithering out of the room.
Bai Qingqing glumly sat beside Parker. Seeing that Vincent was standing in the doorway, she said to him weakly, “You can come in.”
Vincent’s heart instantly began to race as he walked into the room stiffly. The air was filled with the female’s scent, which he was completely enthralled by.
Bai Qingqing used a towel to wipe away the blood on the back of Parker’s head, and without raising her head, she asked, “How is the tiger tribe? Are they going to change their target to the leopard tribe now that Rosa has befriended the ape king?”
“Not necessarily,” Vincent said in a deep voice. “The ape king wants all the power for himself, so he’ll definitely attack the tiger tribe. Rosa’s father is being deceived. The ape king has so much authority—of course he would trust him.”
“Why?” Bai Qingqing asked in confusion. “What has the ape king done? He’s just a beastman with two animal stripes.”
Vincent glanced at Bai Qingqing and suddenly said, “You’re not from the ape tribe.”
Bai Qingqing’s heart skipped a beat and she quickly raised her head.
Vincent watched Bai Qingqing’s reaction and smiled. “Just as I thought.”
