Chapter 274: Young Snakes Should Be Set Free
The young snakes fled into the empty room next door and no sound came from them.
“They can remember things now, right?” Bai Qingqing asked again.
Curtis replied, “Of course.”
Bai Qingqing said decisively, “It’s time to let them live separately from us.”
Curtis took the animal skin in Bai Qingqing’s hands and covered up her legs, then carried her to sit in the nest. Bai Qingqing could sense Curtis’s desire and sat docile on his legs, not daring to move.
“We lone beastmen are commonly not brought up by our parents. That’s why we have the inherited legacy to help save our lives. They are my children, and when they enter the mature phase, they’ll awaken memories related to mates. The two of us will be the clearest memories they have.”
Bai Qingqing’s expression immediately turned strange. She looked at Curtis’s face for a while, then shook her head vigorously.
These young snakes wouldn’t grow up with an Oedipus complex, right? If they were all as domineering and stubborn as Curtis were… She really didn’t dare to imagine how things would be.
“I’d like to let them go when they get a little bigger,” Curtis said in an emotionless tone, the depth of his deep eyes hiding faint but persistent killing intent.
Bai Qingqing fell silent. Curtis gently stroked her head, not rus.h.i.+ng her for an answer, but saying, “Don’t blame me.”
Bai Qingqing knew that Curtis was being serious and she turned anxious, saying, “We can let them go when they’ve matured, and then only keep in contact with them after they’ve found their mate.”
“They have feelings for you. In addition to the disturbances they have from my memories, they’ll definitely return to look for you immediately. You’re forcing me to kill them,” Curtis said ruthlessly.
Bai Qingqing’s face turned pale as she looked toward a small door in the bedroom.
A few young snakes probed their heads out and were sneaking looks at them. When they saw Bai Qingqing looking over, they flicked out their tongues, hissing away. There wasn’t the usual energetic tone in their voices.
They must have understood!
Bai Qingqing thought to herself.
“Then we must treat them better before we let them go,” Bai Qingqing bore with the ache in her heart as she said.
Curtis smiled in an indulging manner. “Alright.”
Parker ran to the fields and saw from afar that there was a muscular tiger beastman standing in their field.
“You’ve come too.” Winston didn’t turn but could discern who it was by his footsteps.
The seedlings that had grown to be one palm in length were soaked halfway by the rainwater, and Winston was using a basin to scoop water out. Some of the water that was scooped out would still seep back into the pit.
Many beastmen were doing the same, their faces filled with joy. They knew that the seedlings would grow very quickly when there was ample rainwater. What they didn’t know was that there was going to be an impending storm.
Parker let out a snort. To think that he had s.n.a.t.c.hed his job. He was too detestable!
Thinking of Bai Qingqing, who was back at home and in heat, Parker’s mood immediately improved as he chatted with Winston leisurely. “The tiger beastmen have informed you, right?”
Winston didn’t reply and continued to work quietly.
Parker also jumped into the field, scooping water out. “Curtis said there’s going to be a heavy rain soon. Snakes are very sensitive toward the weather, and he said that the rain is going to be extremely heavy.”
