Chapter 234: Oxygen Deprived Fish Are Easy to Catch

The edges of the hole in the ice started to freeze up, and the water surface got increasingly smaller. The area quickly shrunk in size by a lot.

Bai Qingqing grabbed Parker’s arm and shook it. “How did you do that? Quickly tell me.”

Parker smiled, his golden hair revealing a brilliant glow under the sunlight, causing him to give off the scent of sunlight. “I only discovered this a few days ago. When you asked me to wash up when we mated the other time, after I washed up, I noticed that fish were jumping upward. I was in a hurry to mate back then and didn’t have the time to catch them.”

When Bai Qingqing kept on hearing Parker mentioning the word “mate”, her face flushed up.

“You weren’t the one who did it?” Bai Qingqing threw a glance at the water surface and saw that the fish kept on trying to break through from the surface, their mouths gaping as if trying very hard to take in oxygen.

So they were oxygen deprived? She thought that it was due to a similar kind of mental power like the one from the ape tribe.

Even if fish kept on jumping up, the water surface still froze up relentlessly.

The piping hot fish let out a fragrance that permeated the cold air, adding a hint of warmth to the horrible weather. The pot was filled to the brim with fish, and the boiling water would overflow if it got just the slightest bit more intense.

Many fish reproduced in the cold season, and thus this pot of fish all had fat stomachs. Bai Qingqing picked up a fish with a big stomach and said in surprise, “There is fish roe!”

Parker made a “hmmm” sound and looked at the fish roe curiously. “You like to eat them?”

“En, en. I love to eat fish roe the most.” Bai Qingqing picked up a small chunk of fish roe and put them in her mouth, then chewed on them. Her eyes squinted slightly and she said in satisfaction, “It’s more delicious than I expected.”

“Have a taste.” Bai Qingqing then took a slightly larger chunk of fish roe, sending it to Parker’s mouth.

Parker couldn’t bear to eat them. He held onto Bai Qingqing’s hand, sending the fish roe back to her mouth. “You eat.”

“No matter how good something tastes, there’s no meaning in eating it alone.” She glared at him. She couldn’t beat Parker in strength and could only eat the mouthful of fish roe first. She then said to Winston, “Get your bowl and chopsticks and eat up. You should like to eat fish too, right?”

Tigers and leopards were both animals from the cat family. Given how even Parker liked to eat fish, Winston should like them too.

Winston’s eyes had been staring for a long time, and a lot of saliva was secreted in his mouth. He had never eaten fish before but had a crazy yearning for the fragrance coming from the pot. It was instinctive, like how moths would fly toward the fire.

Vince clenched at the firewood in his hand tightly, forcibly restraining his craving. However, his deep voice still emitted a clear desire. “Can I?”

“Of course you can.” Bai Qingqing turned and took two sets of bowl and chopsticks, handing one set to Winston. She suddenly realized that she had never invited Winston to share the food that was meant solely for her.

It was no wonder Winston was being so restricted.

Winston’s eyes gleamed, and he was about to take the bowl and chopsticks when Bai Qingqing drew her hand back. The glow in his eyes rapidly turned dim, and he tried to hide it as he added more firewood into the flame.

Bai Qingqing put three fish into the bowl, and only handed it to Winston again when it was so full that she wasn’t able to add any more. “There, don’t stand on ceremony. There are so many fish, we have to try hard to finish them all.”

“I can finish them,” Parker said in an eccentric tone, but without much confidence. It was because females were the center of a family, and even food would be distributed by them.

Bai Qingqing glared at Parker. When she felt the bowl leaving her hand, she changed into a smile, handing the chopsticks to Winston. “Do you know how to use chopsticks? Let me teach you.”

Winston held onto the piping hot stone bowl. However, the enticing scent seemed to become non-existential, and all of his senses were starting to become vague.
