Chapter 347: Whereabouts Exposed
Followed by adult eagle beastmen?
Muir’s heart sank. He instantly dove downwards. He couldn’t let that group of eagle beastmen find him, else Qingqing’s whereabouts would be exposed.
[Hey, you’re going to scare away all the prey!] A young eagle shrunk in his stomach that had gone flat due to hunger and was prepared to fly elsewhere to capture prey when he halted upon hearing his brother’s words.
[Let’s go to where the adult eagles are. Perhaps they have also brought a female back.]
[Yeah, let’s go and look at the females!]
Several young eagles flapped their little wings and found the adult eagle beastmen following Curtis. Their father was among them.
The young eagle’s father flew out of the crowd and hovered before the young eagles.
The young eagles fought to speak.
[Dad, I hadn’t expected to see you before coming of age. We’re here to see the females. Yesterday a grown eagle beastman brought back a female.]
[He said a formidable snake beastman is s.n.a.t.c.hing the female. He told us to keep a watch nearby.]
The young eagle beastmen’s father let out a high-pitched screech as he said excitedly to his companions: [No need to follow the snake beastman anymore. Bai Qingqing is at Sea Cliff!]
The eagle beastmen let out excited screeches that resonated throughout the entire forest.
Curtis glanced at them, feeling odd. He suddenly had a bad feeling.
This is bad. Snow might have been discovered!
Several black figures flew by the clifftop of Sea Cliff briskly, making the atmosphere appear harsh and severe.
The eagle beastmen searched all the nests at Sea Cliff, but they couldn’t find the female anywhere.
[Where’s the female?] With a ferocious gaze, the grown eagle beastman asked the young eagles.
Under the intimidation of someone of a higher level than them, the young eagles were so terrified that they kept s.h.i.+vering.
They instinctively sensed these adult eagle beastmen’s killing intent towards Bai Qingqing. Even though these young eagle beastmen and that adult eagle beastman were basically father-and-son, none of them dared to make a sound.
[Let me tell you, that isn’t a female. She’s just a good-looking monster who has a knack at bewitching males. With her around, many beastmen will die. Quick, tell me where they are.]
The young eagles stared at each other and finally quietly led them to Muir’s nest.
[They’re here. But Muir just flew away with the female earlier.]
[In which direction?]
Curtis followed closely. Upon seeing the eagle beastmen stop on the cliff, his heart was put to ease. He could sense that Bai Qingqing was somewhere else.
Part of the eagle beastmen flew towards the direction pointed out by the young eagles. Just to be safe, part of them continued to tag behind Curtis.
Curtis sneered inwardly. Seems like he had no choice but to settle this trouble once and for all.
With Bai Qingqing on his back, Muir flew through the forest and didn’t dare fly in the skies.
“Why is that group of eagle beastmen here? Did Curtis and Parker come?” Bai Qingqing felt ecstatic. Immediately after though, she shook her head. “Curtis said he would reach the seaside in another two weeks’ time. Parker isn’t as fast as him either. It’s a coincidence, I guess.”
Muir continued flying quietly.
Suddenly, Bai Qingqing—who was lying face-down on Muir’s back—let out a moan. Muir instantly landed on the ground.
“What’s the matter with you?” Muir asked nervously.
With a hand over her stomach, Bai Qingqing panted twice. “I feel a little uncomfortable with something b.u.mping against my stomach.”
Muir lifted Bai Qingqing horizontally and gazed around, his tone urgent. “I’ll bring you to the peac.o.c.k tribe to look for a doctor. You’re a female, they won’t ignore you.”
With one arm hooked around Muir’s neck, after resting for a while, Bai Qingqing felt much better. Hence, she said, “I’m fine, fleeing is more important.”
Muir took a look at Bai Qingqing’s countenance and continued in the same direction.
