Chapter 204: The Wooden House Is Occupied?
Parker huffed and his nostrils flared. He had a rather deep impression of this female too. Of course, when he saw this person, he only felt irritated.
“Qingqing, ignore her.” Eve pulled Bai Qingqing’s hand, and the latter nodded her head in agreement.
Surely you couldn’t bark back when a dog barked at you? It’d be disgraceful. So long as her interests weren’t affected, Bai Qingqing couldn’t be bothered to waste her breath with Eudora.
As she stared at Bai Qingqing’s face, strong jealousy clouded Eudora’s eyes. It was only when her little cubs called out to her in their babyish voices that she snapped out of her trance. She looked up at Parker, the admiration she had once felt turned into abomination. But she couldn’t take it lying down. Especially after she saw the three animal stripes on Parker’s face.
“Some beastmen don’t know what’s good for them. If you had become my male, you would have a litter of cubs by now,” Eudora said, feigning an air of nonchalance.
“It’s not like I fancy Qingqing because she can give birth to my cubs.” Parker glanced at the males behind Eudora and said sarcastically, “Hope all of you manage to have babies of your own.”
That was, of course, not possible. Eudora already had eight males, and none of them were formidable. Thus, they weren’t able to bring her a green crystal to prolong her lifespan. As a female could only give birth for thirty years or so, it would be good enough if she could give birth five or six times. Giving birth eight times was nearly impossible. Moreover, looking at how fickle in love Eudora was, she would probably have more mates in the future.
Eudora was speechless. She was even more jealous of Bai Qingqing now.
Which of her males didn’t become mates with her with the hopes that she would give birth to their offspring? Yet Parker didn’t woo Bai Qingqing because of this reason. Moreover, Parker was so formidable—he was already a three-striped beastman now and even moved into the City of Beastmen. He should be very formidable in the City of Beastmen too.
Eudora stared viciously at Bai Qingqing and only left with a sulky expression under the urging of her mates.
Bai Qingqing poked Parker’s tummy with her elbow. “Well said.”
Parker’s gloominess went away instantly. He shook his tail gleefully.
“She’s so smug about having given birth to a litter of cubs.” Eve rolled her eyes, then suddenly chuckled. “After you left, she’s been going around asking people how to roast meat the way you did every day. But the meat she roasted tasted super awful. She even came to me and asked me to teach her how to cook fish steamboat. I keep hearing her gloat about you getting abducted by a feral beast. No way will I teach her how to make it.”
Bai Qingqing hadn’t expected Eudora even thought that way of her. Fuming, she said to Eve, “Thank you for not telling her.”
“Mm.” Eve nodded her head vigorously.
The three of them walked to Parker’s wooden house. The door was tightly shut, and no one could tell whether there was a beastman inside.
Seeing Bai Qingqing stop there, Eve immediately reminded her. “We’d better go away quickly. This house is now occupied by a four-striped tiger. He…”
“No worries, I know him.” Without waiting for Eve to finish, Bai Qingqing interrupted her. She was relieved to hear this—the four-striped tiger likely referred to Winston.
“Knock knock knock!” Bai Qingqing knocked on the door. “Winston, are you in there?”
With his hands propped on the ground, Parker crouched down and sniffed the ground at the door. He then raised his head and roared twice.
Bai Qingqing leaned against the wooden wall feebly. “Don’t touch the ground with your hands. How are you going to carry me later?”
Parker wiped his hands on his body and was about to push open the door when they heard the roar of a tiger from behind.
“Winston?” Bai Qingqing turned her head with a beam.
With a b.l.o.o.d.y prey hanging from his mouth, the white tiger exuded a naturally intimidating aura. Eve couldn’t help but retreat two steps. Her three leopard cubs also scurried behind her legs, their round bodies s.h.i.+vering with fear, clearly frightened.
Parker straightened his body, and his lips parted and closed several times before he finally managed to utter, “Are you free?”
