As they were talking, before she realized it, they had reached a gra.s.sland outside the valley.

This gra.s.sland was the entrance Parker carried Bai Qingqing in—a clear lake occupied half the gra.s.sland, and as a gentle breeze blew, a hint of mist over the lake surface could be felt.

Eve bent over and placed the basket tipped over, causing the cubs to spill out of the basket and begin running about. The three little beasts chased each other and had a merry time, adding much joy to this quiet scenery.

“You’re in heat now. Very soon you’ll be able to have little leopard cubs with Parker. Congrats.” Eve congratulated from the bottom of her heart.

Speaking of this, Bai Qingqing’s face collapsed. She glanced around and seeing that there wasn’t anyone around, she said to Eve with a gloomy expression, “Eve, you must help me!”

Shocked to see Bai Qingqing’s expression and thinking something major had happened, Eve instantly grabbed Bai Qingqing’s hand and said, “What happened? If I can be of help, I’ll surely help you.”

“I don’t want to… mate with Parker,” Bai Qingqing’s eyes lowered as she said drearily. “Although I’m very grateful to him, this is all happening too fast for me. I’m unable to accept that.”

Eve sighed, stroking her soft chest. “You gave me quite a scare. I thought something major had happened.”

Bai Qingqing said nothing. Eve continued, “Then, do you dislike Parker very much?”

“I don’t dislike him,” Bai Qingqing replied right away.

Eve then urged. “Then just mate with him. What if you manage to conceive cubs this time?”

Bai Qingqing shook her head resolutely. “No, I don’t wish to give birth so early!”

She then saw a disapproving look on Eve’s face, as if she was an old-fas.h.i.+oned teacher looking at a disobedient bad student.

Bai Qingqing instantly realized she had touched upon the beastmen’s taboo, so she hurriedly added, “Even if I were to give birth, I hope to do so after my relations.h.i.+p with the other party is stabilized. Please help me think of a way. He said after I’m done with going into heat he wants to…”

Seeing Bai Qingqing about to cry, Eve’s heart softened. “There is a way.”

Bai Qingqing raised her head immediately, a hopeful look in her eyes.

Eyes meeting Bai Qingqing’s pitiful-looking ones, Eve’s hesitant heart tipped in bias towards Bai Qingqing. “You can simply tell Parker you’re unwilling.”

“I’ve told him that. He refuses to listen to me.”

Eve smiled slyly. “Then just tell him you’ll abandon him after you mate. That you’ll call off your partners.h.i.+p. He surely wouldn’t dare to force himself on you.”

“Eh?” Bai Qingqing asked with uncertainty, “Will that work?”

“You’ll know the wonder of it all once you have a partner. If us females don’t like a male, we can resolve off our partners.h.i.+p,” Eve suddenly said in a serious tone. “But if you two really come to that stage, don’t easily abandon Parker. That way, he won’t be able to have a partner anymore. Not even with you.”

Bai Qingqing felt dazed from all the new information. Resolve what partners.h.i.+p? She sounded like they were discussing a contract.

Bai Qingqing felt like she had opened the door to a whole new world. In this world, there was even something like divorce, and it was a one-sided one. She couldn’t help but feel pity for the males once again!

“How does one go about resolving their partners.h.i.+p? I must go back and say this to Parker, to scare him,” Bai Qingqing asked enthusiastically. But at this point, Eve fell silent. Bai Qingqing, however, noticed the lifelike leopard tattoo on Eve’s arm.

Has it got something to do with the tattoo?

Bai Qingqing suddenly felt that there was a profound mystery behind the tattoos on the females.
