Chapter 296: Better Looking Than Curtis

“Pa!” A stack of snakeskin fell upon the floor, and no one could be bothered with it.

This kiss was extremely pa.s.sionate. With his red hair draped around the two of them, they were locked in a tight embrace. Anyone seeing this scene wouldn’t be able to deny the love between this pair.


The furious roar of a leopard was heard from downstairs. Only then did the duo locked in a pa.s.sionate kiss break away from each other.

Bai Qingqing wiped her lips and awkwardly gazed down the stairs. So it turned out Parker and Winston had returned. They were carrying one big bag of stuff each, their bodies looking dusty, giving off a sense of fatigue.

Bai Qingqing waved at them. Parker seemed to be jealous—without saying a word, he ran into the stone castle.

Bai Qingqing twirled her fingers together helplessly, before picking up the snakeskin on the floor.

This snakeskin wasn’t as exquisite as the previous one—this time, the scales were much larger, exuding a majestic glamor. If this was the snakeskin she saw previously, she wouldn’t have mistaken it for fine silk.

“Very pretty,” Bai Qingqing said.

The corners of Curtis’s lips curled up slightly. “I’ll make you new clothes.”

“Mm,” Bai Qingqing said. “Let’s go down. You’ve been sleeping at home for a few days, it’s time to get some fresh air outside.”

“Okay.” Curtis smiled indulgently at her. After tossing the snakeskin into his nest in the main room, he followed Bai Qingqing towards the staircase.

Before they exited the staircase, Bai Qingqing saw seven to eight puffed up bags made out of animal skin on the floor in the main room. She was so startled that she let out a gasp. “You guys kept so many?”

Upon hearing Bai Qingqing’s footsteps as she edged closer, he forgot all about his jealousy. In a stern voice, he exclaimed, “Qingqing, don’t come over!”

Bai Qingqing immediately halted in her footsteps. “What’s the matter?”

“You will feel itchy,” Parker replied.

Bai Qingqing’s heart was put to ease upon hearing that. Seeing that the air was pretty clean, she walked out, unperturbed. “Don’t worry, there is no dust here. Are you done harvesting the grains?”

“Yup, all done.” Parker looked at her and saw that the scratch marks on her body had lightened. His tight heart finally eased. Very quickly, he detected that the smell of garlic had dissipated. He reprimanded. “Disobedient. I’ll apply chopped garlic on you again later.”

Terrified, Bai Qingqing gazed pleadingly towards Curtis. “Boss, protect me!”

“Okay.” Curtis played along with her and, with his legs transformed into a snake’s tail, leisurely slithered into the main hall.

Parker’s gaze fell upon Curtis’s face, and his pupils shrunk as the highest alert mode within him was triggered.

Why did the snake suddenly become better-looking? Did he eat a transparent crystal? No wonder Qingqing has been so fond of him lately. Detestable. He decided he was going to capture a behemoth himself and become even better-looking than Curtis!

Curtis glanced at the bag of grains and said to Bai Qingqing, “Shall I cook wild grains for you today?”

“Qingqing gets itchy when her skin comes into contact with wild grains. We’ve distributed them to the females in the village.” Parker retorted at Curtis’s words coldly.

Winston also nodded his head.

The anxious Bai Qingqing ran out from behind Curtis and protested loudly. “No! I can eat it! I used to eat wild grains every day. Wild grains are my favorite!”

“Really?” Parker gazed at her skeptically.

Bai Qingqing nodded repeatedly. “Really! Didn’t I recognize the wild grains at one glance? If I didn’t know about wild grains, why would I want to eat them?”

The hesitation in Curtis’s eyes vanished. After casting a disdainful look at Parker, he lifted a bag of grains and walked towards the backyard. “Snow, come over, I’ll cook it for you.”

With Curtis holding the fort, Bai Qingqing was relieved. She jogged to Curtis’s side and said in an embarra.s.sed tone, “This is more troublesome, it needs to be ground into powder before cooking. Let’s not do it today.”

Seeing that the skies had darkened, Curtis said, “Okay. I’ll cook it for you tomorrow.”
