Chapter 211: It’s Raining Ice

Parker then said, “Our village can use ten prey to trade for one jar of salt. Let’s trade five jars. Three days will be sufficient. You’ll have enough new clothes then as well.”

Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to say much, nodding as she said, “Oh, oh, oh. I’ll do what you say.”

Four days later, as Parker predicted, they already had 50 prey at home. After smoking them for one day and one night, they were hung up the willow trees next to the river to dry. Every family did this, and the trees along the entire stretch of the river were hung with jerky. They were like wind chimes, swaying with the wind. They gave off a slightly terrifying atmosphere.

It was already in the cold winter, and a layer of thin ice had formed on the surface of the river. It would melt once the sun shone down.

After finis.h.i.+ng with all the work, Parker started to make clothes for Qingqing. Winston helped him out in the bedroom. Fishbones were no longer able to pierce through the thick skin, so Parker used his fangs to grind a needle and sewed a few crooked st.i.tches before Bai Qingqing s.n.a.t.c.hed the job from him.

“Let me do that,” said Bai Qingqings. It was only after poking the needle through that she realized that the animal skin was extremely tough. Her body had mostly recovered, and there was now a lot less flab around her waist.

If only Curtis was awake. The clothes that he made were so neatly st.i.tched as if they were like those put up for sale. Moreover, he was also very fast.

“It’s raining ice!” A female outside shouted, then the children’s surprised voices rang out. There were also several “boom boom boom” smas.h.i.+ng sounds.

Bai Qingqing was fighting with the animal skin when she heard the voices. She got up and headed outside, asking in elation, “Is it snowing? Or is it hailstones?”

When Parker saw how excited she was, he immediately felt that something wasn’t right. He got up and chased after her. He had just gotten out of the bedroom when he saw Bai Qingqing das.h.i.+ng outside. He was so shocked that he cried out loudly, “Qingqing!”

Parker quickly grabbed onto Bai Qingqing’s arm and pulled her back.

“Bang!” A block of pomelo-sized ice smashed at the door, sending shattered ice splattering all over.

“Ahhh!” Bai Qingqing cried out in surprise and looked outside, feeling stunned. Everything was white outside, and it was only upon a careful look would it be possible to see that countless white shadows were gliding in the air. Pieces of ice smashed like rocks onto the ground, the shattered ice causing the ground to remain snow-white.

It was only a short while, but the hailstones had suddenly become dense and terrifying. The “boom boom boom” sounds on the rooftop were deafening.

The female outside returned to her house under the protection of the bear beastman, and the four wolf cubs left outside were fleeing desperately, howling in their childish voices. Bai Qingqing watched as one of the cubs was unable to dodge in time and was smashed to the ground by a piece of ice that wasn’t that much bigger than it. A patch of piercing red color spread out on the snow-white ground.

Fortunately, the other three cubs had managed to run back to their house. The male beastman then dashed into the hailstorm, bearing with the ice pieces that smashed onto his body, and left with the cub that was no longer moving and had turned limp.

“What are you doing?” Parker grabbed Bai Qingqing by the shoulders and bellowed, feeling scared of what could have happened as he embraced her tightly.

Bai Qingqing’s face turned pale, her eyes opening wide and in a daze. She was woken up Parker’s anxious voice, and she hugged him back, saying, “I was wrong… I didn’t do that on purpose.”

Who knew that the hail in this world would be so big that they would smash someone to their deaths! If the house one lived in wasn’t st.u.r.dy enough, even the roof would be pierced through.

Parker was extremely thankful that he had run out to take a look. Otherwise… Recalling how Bai Qingqing had almost run out of the house earlier, Parker’s heart felt like it was going to stop. He let go of Bai Qingqing, seeing her in one piece, and his expression changed. A hint of crying could be sensed in his voice. “You fool!”
