The roasted sweet potato tasted even sweeter and was also more fragrant. Even though Bai Qingqing had changed to have a preference for meat after her pregnancy, she still finished one.

The next day, Parker entered the mountains excitedly to dig for sweet potatoes. He came back with a pack basket full of sweet potatoes and had even plucked back quite a lot of the leaves.

“Qingqing!” Parker put the pack basket outside and entered the bedroom with a big bunch of potato leaves. “Do you want to eat the leaves today? I picked the nicer ones.”

Bai Qingqing was still chewing onto jerky when she saw the leaves in Parker’s hands, and there was a hint of aversion in her eyes. It wasn’t because of any other reason, but that those leaves really didn’t look like vegetables.

Curtis threw a glance at the sweet potato leaves, then picked up a palm-sized jerky, handing it to Bai Qingqing. “Have meat.”

“En.” Bai Qingqing opened her mouth and bit into the jerky Curtis pa.s.sed her, chewing as she said, “Why not plant the leaves outside? We might have sweet potatoes growing outside this year.”

“Alright.” Parker left with the leaves but encountered a beastman he wasn’t expecting to see.

“Bai Qingqing is pregnant?” The ape king was holding onto a bamboo pole that had a bunch of leaves tied to it. It was just nice to protect his head from the rain.

The ape king was the beastman with the most amazing medical skills in the City of Beastmen. Whenever a female in the tribe was to be pregnant, he would go and check on the female’s health. Parker was stunned for a moment, then let the ape king into the house.

“That’s right. Qingqing’s stomach is a little bigger now.” Parker was quite happy about the ape king’s visit. He called out toward the bedroom, “Qingqing, come out for a minute. The ape king is here to take a look at you.”

Bai Qingqing had just stuffed a piece of meat into her mouth. When she heard what Parker said, she quickly chewed on the food and swallowed it, wiped her mouth, and got up. “Oh, I’ll be right out.”

Curtis frowned impatiently and got up as well.

Bai Qingqing didn’t have a good impression of the ape king because of the matters with Winston. She a.s.sessed the ape king after coming out.

The ape king looked to be in his thirties or forties, but on a closer look, his slightly balding head made him appear old. His skin condition wasn’t different from that of someone in their twenties or thirties. His face looked quite handsome as well, appearing amicable. He didn’t look as aggressive as carnivorous beastmen.

However, in Bai Qingqing’s opinion, compared to ferocious carnivorous beastmen, he was someone that shouldn’t be offended even more. He was like a real human being, knowing how to put on a disguise and scheme. She couldn’t tell from the ape king’s expression whether he liked or detested her.

“h.e.l.lo.” Bai Qingqing smiled and greeted the ape king, wearing a sweet smile.

Like the ape king, Bai Qingqing also concealed her emotions. As a human, she was born with a layer of outer sh.e.l.l. The only difference was that some people used it to protect themselves, while others used it to scheme against others.

The ape king was stunned momentarily after seeing Bai Qingqing’s face and quickly returned to his senses under the cold gaze of the four-striped beastman in the room. He wore a gentle and refined smile. “You look really beautiful. Probably even the females from the merfolk tribe can’t compare with you.”

As Bai Qingqing wasn’t from the ape tribe, she was sensitive and felt that the ape king seemed to be testing her with his words. He might be suspecting that she was from the merfolk tribe.

“Is that so? I haven’t met the beastmen from the merfolk tribe before,” Bai Qingqing shrugged and said, smiling.

The ape king went with the flow and said, “I haven’t seen them before either. The merfolk tribe keeps their females very well protected, and no beastman has met a female from the merfolk tribe before. They look upon the females from other tribes in disdain, and even if the poorer tribes were to use their females to exchange for salt from them, they would reject without any hesitation, even if it’s just a jar of it. That’s why I think that their females must be extremely beautiful.”
