Chapter 266: Moving House
Bai Qingqing opened her mouth but hadn’t said anything when she heard Parker’s inspirited voice, “Alright, I’ll go pack up right away.”
A hint of exhilaration seethed in Winston’s eyes and he looked toward Qingqing agitatedly.
Bai Qingqing had no choice but to say, “Thank you, then.”
Parker used a piece of animal skin to wrap up the nest and also rolled up their clothes using a big sheet of animal skin. Although there were only twenty or so sets, they weren’t light. In the end, he even carried along a large sack of rice.
Curtis was in-charge of the living creatures. He used a few vines to tie up the short-winged birds and then carried the young snakes with his other hand.
Winston was in-charge of moving the stoneware in the house. As for Bai Qingqing, she had to put up a bit of a struggle to avoid being carried along like a piece of furniture.
The tiger castle was of a completely different style as compared to the exquisite ape castle. There were dying vines crawling on the outer walls and it looked like it had been abandoned for many years. When the sky turned dark, it looked just like a filming site for a horror movie.
The front yard was a clean piece of land with gra.s.s stubble. When the weather turned warmer, this place likely would be a green piece of land filled with gra.s.s.
They entered the tiger castle’s front entrance. Many tiger beastmen were cleaning the bloodstains on the ground, and there was still the smell of blood around.
Bai Qingqing tried her best to not look at the bad stuff. She looked up and a.s.sessed the stone infrastructure.
Although the tiger castle was almost the exact same as the other castles, the beastmen living here were different, and thus it gave off a different feeling. The place gave off a rough and wild feeling.
There were a total of six floors in the castle, and the entire infrastructure was in a stable equilateral triangular shape, similar to the pyramid. The higher the floors, the smaller the s.p.a.ce. The large slabs of stones on the walls seemed coa.r.s.e but were extremely stable.
Winston led Bai Qingqing up to the highest floor, the sixth floor, happily. The area on this floor was about the same as an ordinary stone house, and there were three rooms.
“This floor is for the royalties to live in. Ordinary beastmen won’t be able to come up.” Winston introduced. Bai Qingqing nodded when she heard that.
She hadn’t been to the highest level of a castle before, and she stood at the fence, looking out at half of the City of Beastmen that was within sight. Every street and every river could be seen clearly, giving off the feeling of constantly striving for the top and looking down at the rest of the world.
“You guys can sleep here.” Winston pointed to the main bedroom.
Winston’s voice drew back Bai Qingqing’s attention, and her gaze followed the direction he pointed in. She quickly waved her hand. “We’ll sleep in the room at the side. You take this room.”
Winston smiled and said, “I’m already settled down in the secondary bedroom.”
Parker suddenly thought of something and quickly dashed into the main bedroom. As expected, he noticed that both rooms on the side were connected to this one by a wooden door.
In the first place, the highest floor was meant for the king and his female. The rooms at the side were meant for the female’s other mates as well as younger children. Parker had slept in the secondary bedroom when he was very young, but after he got older, he was thrown off to the lower floors.
Parker let out a snort, feeling displeased, but didn’t say anything. After all, the castle belonged to Winston.
Bai Qingqing ended up living in the main bedroom. Curtis placed the basket with the young snakes on the ground. They opened their big eyes and looked around, carefully climbed out, and then started to recognize the new territory.
The old tiger king’s belongings had been cleared, but there were still lingering scents left behind.
Both Curtis and Parker turned into their beast forms and rubbed around in the room, not letting go of even the dead corners.
When the males were prepping the room, Bai Qingqing sat by the fence, looking toward the ape castle not far away. The towering poisonous tree had already disappeared.
“It’s a pity that we didn’t bring back those seeds.” Bai Qingqing mumbled to herself.
To replace the ape king, it was a must to take over his job. The seeds for growing crops each year were an absolute necessity.
