Chapter 205: Go Back to the City of Beastmen Together
“Huff!” Winston dragged the prey with him as he walked over, his gaze falling upon Bai Qingqing.
Bai Qingqing smiled at Winston. “It’s been a long time since I last saw you. Are you used to living here?”
Stunned by the female’s smile, Winston loosened his bite, and the prey fell to the ground with a loud thud. He instantly snapped out of his trance and licked his mouth, before transforming into a human.
In his human form, Winston looked even more intimidating—he was ridiculously muscular and his firm physique gave off a strong imposing vibe. Combined with that grotesque scar on his face and his head of merciless-looking silver hair, he appeared ferocious and unapproachable.
“Ah!” Eve shrieked and retreated several steps until her back pressed against the wooden wall. She opened her mouth wide and panted violently.
This was the first time Winston transformed into his human form in Camel Hump Valley. His beast form was frightening enough to the females, but Eve hadn’t expected that the white tiger’s human form was even more terrifying. If it weren’t for the fact that there was something for her back to lean against, she would perhaps have fallen sitting on the ground now.
“Eve?” Bai Qingqing turned around and looked at her.
Eve bent over and picked up one of her cubs, her voice trembling a little. “I’ll go back first. Let’s chat next time.’
“Oh, goodbye.” Bai Qingqing waved at her. She knew that Eve must be frightened by Winston. But considerate of Winston’s feelings, she pretended she didn’t realize that.
Winston said, “I’m free anytime.”
Parker’s gaze swept over Winston’s reproductive organ with a wary look in his eyes. He rushed up to Bai Qingqing in one swift step and blocked him from her view, then bent over to lift her into his arms.
“I’m going hunting now, and there’s no one to take care of Qingqing,” Parker said to Winston. Of course, as Bai Qingqing laid in Parker’s arms, the top of her head was facing Winston.
Secretly overwhelmed with joy, the corner of Winston’s lips twitched stiffly for a bit. Without any hesitation, he said, “Got it. I’ll go back with the two of you right away.”
Winston then transformed into a tiger and, picking up the prey on the ground with his mouth, walked back with them to the City of Beastmen.
Bai Qingqing turned back and glanced at the wooden house, before asking Winston, “Aren’t you going to pack up your things?”
“Roar!” Winston shook his head with the prey hanging from his mouth.
When they reached the stone house in the City of Beastmen, Parker placed Bai Qingqing on the gra.s.s nest in the bedroom.
Missing her snake eggs, Bai Qingqing instantly looked towards the grinding stone and noticed that there was now a tuft of dry gra.s.s in that tiny crack. This way, no one would be able to tell there was a problem with that patch of ground.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t resist smiling. It must have been Curtis who did that. He was indeed an alert creature. Also, she wondered how her snake eggs were doing—were they developing well in their sh.e.l.ls right now?
Parker was about to head out when he saw Winston transform into a human. He hurriedly went back into the house and found an inferior piece of animal skin.
“Cover yourself with this.” Parker tossed the animal skin to Winston. It wasn’t that he was stingy, but that there were too few animal skins in the house, and he wanted to leave the better pieces for Bai Qingqing.
Winston didn’t mind. He wrapped it around his waist, and only then did Parker leave with a peace of mind.
Bai Qingqing heard the conversation outside. Knowing that Winston had put on clothes, she walked out graciously.
The limbs of the prey that Winston had set down by the wall in the main room had already stiffened, and the blood on its neck wound had already dried up and blackened. Hence, Bai Qingqing asked, “Why aren’t you eating it? If you leave it there any longer, it’s going to go bad.”
She then walked to the firewood and drew out a few. “I’ll help you start a fire. Hurry up and remove the skin by the river.”
“… Oh.” Winston awkwardly strode out the door with the prey in his hand.
As she handled the firewood, Bai Qingqing gazed at Winston’s back view and wondered why he didn’t own anything.
