Chapter 337: The Place Where Eagle Beastmen Grew Up
He used tree bark to weave a big net with holes that were the size of a fist according to the net weaving method Bai Qingqing invented. He then put in a layer of tree bark, then a layer of thick waxy tree leaves, making a hammock for her.
When they were on the way, he would grab onto the hammock with his claws.
Bai Qingqing’s dejected feelings became a lot lighter due to the children’s arrival. For the sake of her children, she would do her best to take a few bites of the tasteless meat.
Muir had been flying in the forest over the past two days, and Bai Qingqing kept on glancing behind, hoping to be able to catch a glimpse of Curtis and Parker from a corner. After ascertaining that they had thrown the eagle beastmen off track, Muir flew above the canopy and flew even faster and more stable.
Bai Qingqing was unable to see anything in the forest and thus could only lay down to rest with nothing to do. It was hot and sunny, and she was barely able to hold on after covering up with a few layers of tree leaves.
Seven days later, they arrived at their destination.
There were vast plains under them that they couldn’t see the ends. There was lush gra.s.s plains, rivers that reflected the blue sky and white clouds, as well as groups of animals that were leisurely eating gra.s.s…
Mid-sized black eagles would occasionally fly past in the sky in search of prey.
This place was heaven for the eagle tribe.
It was just that there wasn’t a place that was suitable for residence.
If they were to continue forward, it’d be the sea. There was a stretch of towering black and gray boulders along the edges of the sea, with no hints of gra.s.s at all.
Seeing Muir dash straight for the rocks, Bai Qingqing thought that Sea Cliff was an island located in the sea. However, he suddenly glided down, landing on top of a stone cliff.
Bai Qingqing crawled out from the hammock, used her hand to s.h.i.+eld from the sun, then looked at the desolate land around her, her mouth agape.
“This is Sea Cliff?”
Bai Qingqing looked up at Muir’s face. The two of them were very close together. When she raised her head, half of her vision was taken up by Muir’s abnormally muscular chest.
Her face flushed up and she turned to look toward the sea.
The sea breeze blew up Bai Qingqing’s long hair, and the hems of her skirt fluttered intensely, creating flapping sounds.
Muir was embarra.s.sed by how desolate the Sea Cliff was, but his eyes were fixed on Bai Qingqing as he replied in a deep voice, “En.”
Bai Qingqing didn’t say anything but turned to take a look.
A flock of mid-sized eagle beastmen flew over from all directions, creating a clamor and surrounding the two of them standing on the top of the cliff.
The older eagle beastmen were close to maturity, while the younger ones were only the size of an arm-length. All of them fought to cry out before others did.
[Is this a female?]
[The female is so beautiful. Her body is so smooth, unlike how our bodies are covered in black feathers.]
[This is the first time that a mature eagle beastman has brought a female back. Is she pregnant? Matured beastman, did you bring her back to give birth?]
Muir wasn’t planning on paying these young eagles any heed. However, when he heard this, his expression flickered for a moment and his throat rolled as he let out a short eagle cry.
[Yes, she’s pregnant with babies.]
The young eagles became even more fervent, and several tens of young eagles had their gazes fixed on Bai Qingqing’s stomach.
Bai Qingqing cried out in surprise, “Everyone in this place is from the eagle tribe?”
“En. This is only the place we grow up in. After we mature, we’ll go to various parts of the world in search of a mate. After we have descendants, we’ll bring them back here to hatch before returning to our mate.”
“Why?” Bai Qingqing asked, baffled. “Why don’t let the children live together with the parents?”
Muir walked up to the edges of the cliff, looking down on the gra.s.s plains below, his gaze seeming to be recollecting something.
“A harsh environment will make us strong. I’ll also let my descendants live here so that they can obtain this strength.”
Muir said as he turned to look toward Bai Qingqing.
