Chapter 237: Curtis Ate Someone
If he were to leave, the baby snakes’ safety wouldn’t be a.s.sured.
However, Winston didn’t ask. He dusted the snow off his hands and continued to bury the wooden pillars.
After the fence was built, Parker wrapped them up densely with vines. Short-winged birds couldn’t fly high. He removed all the vines tied to their legs, allowing them to roam around freely within the fences.
In the days that followed, Bai Qingqing had counted every pa.s.sing day. Although she knew that the duration of the cold season wasn’t an exact three months, she still couldn’t suppress her agitation when she saw that the three months were going to be up.
She was finally going to see the baby snakes!
One night, the short-winged birds’ agonizing cries rang out in the night sky. Bai Qingqing could even hear the sounds of them flapping their wings.
Again! Was there an end to this?
Bai Qingqing immediately wanted to get up. The activity this time around was too great. Parker didn’t insist on letting Bai Qingqing sleep either. He helped her put on her clothes and came out together with her.
Winston was out long ago, catching the young wolves within the fence.
Three bright moons illuminated the earth, and it was chaos within the fenced area. Many short-winged birds were fluttering around, and seven to eight dead birds could be seen on the floor.
This time around, they didn’t eat sneakily but were openly creating trouble. There were four young wolves. Winston caught one with his mouth and pressed one down to the ground with his foot. Two more were crazily pouncing on and killing the living short-winged birds.
Bai Qingqing broke out in tears of frustration and cursed. “d.a.m.n it!”
Parker’s hand on Bai Qingqing’s shoulder tightened its grip. He was about to jump in and catch the young wolves when a ma.s.sive black shadow suddenly flashed past.
A large area of the fence fell at lightning speed. Before the sound ended, one young wolf had already disappeared. The black shadow stopped moving, revealing a black and red cold gleam.
Bai Qingqing opened her mouth. “Curtis…”
A pair of scarlet beast eyes looked toward Bai Qingqing. There seemed to be a wolf leg moving under it, but it quickly disappeared. The shadow got up, and a huge snakehead gradually came into clear sight.
The remaining three young wolves started to cry out in horror. Winston seemed to be stunned, allowing the young wolves in his mouth and under his paw to escape.
The snake figure moved with a flash once again, and the young wolves’ voices rapidly decreased.
Bai Qingqing turned completely stiff. Was this Sn… Sn… Sn… Snake?
The young wolves’ screaming came to a stop. Curtis was still crawling on the ground, and he ate up all the dead birds as well.
Bai Qingqing finally returned to her senses, shuddering as she asked, “Are you able to spit them out?”
The snake beastman raised his upper body, turning into a semi-beast form, his voice calm as usual. “Snakes don’t regurgitate feeding.”
Bai Qingqing looked at his flat stomach, her expression cracking up. Oh my G.o.d, everything he ate must have been pressed into a flat biscuit!
Curtis swung his snake tail lightly. Although he looked as if he was moving slowly, he appeared before Bai Qingqing in an instant. His icy-cold fingers touched Bai Qingqing’s face, and his cold expression finally turned warmer.
“You’ve gotten fatter.” Curtis wore a light smile, his voice sounding a little hoa.r.s.e. However, his tone was the same as before, as if they had never been separated. He looked at Bai Qingqing with his glaze-like red eyes filled with adoration.
“Those aren’t wild wolves! They are young beastmen!” Bai Qingqing said with great anguish.
Curtis said calmly, “I know.”
Bai Qingqing was speechless.
Parker and Winston exchanged a glance, neither of them saying a word.
“I recalled the sound of their footsteps from the other time. They are the children of the tiger tribe’s female.” Curtis smiled, but there was strong killing intent in his smile. “How can my female be someone she can bully?”
Although Bai Qingqing felt very touched, she was still unable to calm down. Her heart was seething with the thought, Oh my G.o.d! Curtis ate someone!!!
