Chapter 229: Ask Them to Compensate

“Coo coo coo—”

The short-winged birds kept on crying out, but with Winston around, none of the birds dared to bully Bai Qingqing, who had no attacking abilities.

Unlike domestic chickens, the short-winged birds were aggressive. They were also territorial, with each of them possessing an individual nest. Bai Qingqing found it strange when she chased off a short-winged bird and saw that there wasn’t a single egg inside.

To get the short-winged birds to always lay their eggs in the same spot, she would never remove all of their eggs. She would leave one behind. However, there wasn’t a single egg left in this short-winged bird’s nest.

There were eggs in the other short-winged birds’ nests, but she also discovered shattered These might have been cracked by the short-winged birds themselves, but there were also traces of blood on the dried gra.s.s in the corner.

Based on these signs, Bai Qingqing was certain that a thief had gotten in.

“Who would come and steal our birds? They are so small and not enough to satiate one’s hunger.”

Winston sniffed the smell on the ground and said in a deep voice, “It’s an adolescent. From the wolf tribe.”

“No wonder. They must have wanted to practice hunting.” Bai Qingqing sighed. “Forget it. We’ll just keep watch carefully in the future and don’t allow them to come again.”

This matter was laid to rest, but it hadn’t been two days when thieves broke in again.

However, this time around, there weren’t any beastmen snooping on other people mating to cover up for them. Winston quickly noticed them, and the adolescents who came to steal the birds threw the loot away and ran off.

Winston returned with the dead prey. Four had died this time around.

Bai Qingqing walked out sleepily, covered up with a blanket as she rubbed her eyes. When she saw that four birds had died, her heart ached so much that her sleepiness was chased away. “Why did so many of them died? Did you see their looks clearly?”

“En.” Winston nodded softly, his brows furrowed tightly together. “They are Rosa’s children.”

It’d be easy to take care of the matter if this was done by mature beastmen. They could just kill them and end the matter. However, they were children, and it was forbidden to kill children in the City of Beastmen. The importance of children was second only to females. After all, they were the hopes for the next generation.

Bai Qingqing instantly flared up, feeling so angry that her chest was undulating intensely. “They must have been instructed by the adults. The tiger castle is so far away from us, so how could a few children that have just stopped drinking milk find their way here? We mustn’t leave this matter be!”

“Growl!” A low growl came out from Parker’s throat. “I’ll go look for their father and ask for a duel!”

“Why would you look for their father for a duel?” Bai Qingqing asked.

“What else can I do?” Parker stopped his growling. “I can’t duel against children.”

“Ask them to compensate!” Bai Qingqing said a matter-of-factly.

Parker was speechless.

Winston was speechless.

Both Winston and Parker looked like they wanted to laugh. Winston’s lips were pursed together as he tried to hold back his laughter. Parker rubbed Bai Qingqing’s head and said, “Who taught you this logic? This is a territorial invasion. We either chase them off or kill them. Why would you have the idea of getting them to compensate for the food? Moreover, it’d be very quick for me to go out and catch a few short-winged birds. They generally don’t move in the cold season.”

Bai Qingqing’s face fell. She didn’t wish for Parker to kill. Moreover, Parker might not be able to beat Rosa’s mate, who was a three-striped wolf beastman. Were they going to be made to take the loss helplessly just like that?

Bai Qingqing felt so aggrieved that tears started to well up in her eyes, and she stomped her foot hard, saying, “I don’t care. I want them to compensate.”

Parker’s heart ached for her and he quickly said, “Alright, alright, alright. We’ll get them to compensate.”

After saying that, Parker looked toward Winston, using his gaze to express that he was going to leave Bai Qingqing in his care. Winston nodded solemnly, and Parker took the dead short-winged birds as he left the house.

“He really went.” Bai Qingqing sighed. “Forget it, let’s see how things go.”
