Chapter 203: Ran into a Love Rival
Bai Qingqing reached out to carry a cub. Surprisingly, although the little cub didn’t appear very big in size, his body was as heavy as lead. When Bai Qingqing overly exerted her strength, her tummy would start to ache. Hence, she had no choice but to give up.
“Yeah, they can catch rats by themselves to eat already.” Eve squatted down and patted her cubs lovingly.
The two little cubs rubbed their faces against Eve’s hand continuously, while the third cub remained by Bai Qingqing’s side. He moved a step towards its mother, then turned back to look at Bai Qingqing. After hesitating for a moment, he went back to Bai Qingqing and started rubbing his face against her hand.
Speechless, Bai Qingqing’s hand froze. Although she knew that the rats of this world weren’t as dirty as the ones in the modern world, eating rats still gave her a weird feeling.
“You’ve become so pretty now. If I hadn’t heard Harvey mention earlier, I wouldn’t have dared to confirm it was you.” Eve stared at Bai Qingqing in disbelief. The more she stared, the more shocked she was. She was amazed that a female could be this pretty. Even though Bai Qingqing was so thin that her chin had turned sharp, there was a special aesthetic to it, and it didn’t at all give others a bad impression.
It was worth mentioning that being thin and frail was fatal to a female—males tended not to like thin and frail females, because it would be difficult for such females to procreate. Also, such females tended to die easily.
But for the thin and frail Bai Qingqing, it only made one yearn to bring her the best foods so that she could become healthier quickly.
Bai Qingqing touched her face and smiled shyly, not knowing what to say.
“By the way, you were in heat when you were abducted by the snake beastman. Do you have babies of your own now? And how did you manage to come back?” Eve’s expression grew worried as she recalled the intrusion of the snake beastman in their village.
Bai Qingqing glanced at Parker, then stood up. Pulling Parker along with her, she said as she walked to the wooden house, “Parker asked someone to rescue me. That snake beastman’s name is Curtis, and he now lives in the City of Beastmen. I gave birth to a nest of snake eggs last night, and he’s hatching them right now.”
Worry and even fear could be seen in Eve’s eyes as she asked in a panicked voice, “Oh no, what can we do about this? The two of you had better run away quickly. Run as far away as you can while he’s hatching the eggs.”
Chuckling, Bai Qingqing pulled Eve’s hand and said, “Don’t worry, Curtis treats me very well.”
Eve gazed at Bai Qingqing with heavy doubt in her eyes and said worriedly, “Don’t lie to me. He’s a feral beast, a cold-blooded beastman.”
“I’m serious.” Bai Qingqing wasn’t mad about Eve’s prejudice against feral beasts, for before getting to know Curtis, she too had resolutely felt that feral beasts were all wicked.
Feral beasts were indeed like everyone had made them out to be, but they knew how to love. It was just that they didn’t express themselves in a proper way.
Eve calmed down and said with a bitter expression, “Forget it. No matter where you flee to, he can sense it. Err, are you really unable to cancel your spousal relations.h.i.+p?”
“I’ve tried. I can’t,” Bai Qingqing said. When she recalled how heartless she was then, she felt a vague tightening sensation around her ankles.
Bai Qingqing felt extremely guilty. If Curtis had lost a sense of belonging for good because of her, there was nothing she could do to make it up to him.
Eve was a smart and sensitive person. Noticing that Bai Qingqing’s countenance wasn’t very good, she changed the subject.
“Huh, isn’t that the female who was abducted by the feral beast?” A female walked towards them. She was wearing a dark red fox fur coat and holding a rattan basket of a contorted shape, from which the babyish sounds of little beasts could be heard.
Quite a few beastmen were following behind her, and she was gazing at Bai Qingqing with a stuck-up expression.
Bai Qingqing stared at her for a good while and felt that this person kind of resembled Sister Feng, before recalling that this person was Eudora. She subconsciously looked up at Parker.
