Chapter 349: Wait for Me to Pick You Up
“Eagle beastman, you’ve invaded our territory.”
The green-haired young beastman pointed to the front and bellowed, his gaze only landing on the pet.i.te female next to the eagle beastman for an instant before turning his gaze away in disdain.
As the young beastman’s voice rang out, over 100 peac.o.c.ks flew over from all directions, surrounding Bai Qingqing and Muir. The big tree beaming with life instantly looked even lusher.
Bai Qingqing hid behind Muir, lowering her head, letting her trailing hair covering up two-thirds of her face, leaving only her nose and mouth exposed outside. She looked like a diffident ugly girl.
This wasn’t like what she had imagined. The place seemed to be repulsive against outsiders. Could it be that she was too ugly and they were in disdain toward her?
Muir extended one of his arms, protecting and gently consoling her. He then spoke to the green-haired young beastman.
“We’ve been chased by a feral beast. Qingqing is pregnant and it isn’t convenient for her to travel. We only came to seek help because we were left with no choice.”
“En?” Bai Qingqing looked up toward Muir, her eyes twitching.
Hey! The feral beast you’re referring to can’t possibly be Curtis, right? What’s going on?
Muir pressed down Bai Qingqing’s head with one hand, and she saw the gra.s.s that popped up through her toes, trying to think back on what Muir said.
Muir’s way of saying things were good. He turned the attention from the eagle beastmen to the feral beast that everyone detested. That way, no beastman would doubt her background.
No ordinary female would be chased after by groups of males. This was something that the peac.o.c.k tribe better not know about.
“You guys are aware of how rare children are. You can’t possibly leave us to die.” Muir stared at the peac.o.c.k tribe’s males with a sincere gaze.
The young beastman’s dark green brows were furrowed, and his expression seemed to be that of annoyance. After a.s.sessing the female in the eagle beastman’s arms, he realized that, although her skin wasn’t considered tanned, it looked dirty. There was a black-red snake spousal mark on her left ankle that stood out a lot.
“Snake beastman?” The young beastman asked.
“That’s right,” Muir replied.
The young beastman nodded. The spousal print on her leg showed that the female and the snake beastmen had a bond. The eagle beastman didn’t lie.
“Of course. But you better not create trouble for us. We won’t go to battle for the sake of a female from another tribe,” said the young beastman arrogantly as he raised his chin.
“Thank you.” Muir heaved a sigh of relief. It seemed that these bunch of fools didn’t manage to tell how beautiful Qingqing was. That was good.
He turned to look toward Bai Qingqing, handing her the package wrapped in tree leaves. He tied up the messy hair on the side of her face and then his hand paused in mid-air, blocking off other gazes.
“Be good and stay here. Wait for me to come and get you,” Muir said gently, his gaze showing his unwillingness to leave.
“En, en.” Bai Qingqing nodded vigorously, then looked up at him. “I’m fine. You must be careful.”
Muir bent over and quickly planted a kiss on Bai Qingqing’s forehead. Bai Qingqing took a step back in reflex and then raised her hand to cover her forehead. When she looked up once again, Muir had already transformed into his eagle form and flew away.
A smirk rang out from the side.
“You’re quite docile. But given how ugly you are, if you aren’t docile, probably no one would want to be with you.”
The young peac.o.c.k beastman had walked up to her without her noticing.
Bai Qingqing lowered her head, allowing her hair to cover up her face. She pouted her lips, not saying a word.
“Come with me.”
After saying that, the young beastman took the lead and walked off before Bai Qingqing could give a response.
Bai Qingqing quickly caught up. After seeing his smooth b.u.t.t, she buried her face even lower.
So bird-type beastmen all didn’t have tails.
That made sense. It was really inconvenient to be dragging along a feathery tail behind one’s b.u.t.t when in human form. It might not look good either.
The young beastman led Bai Qingqing to the big tree’s trunk. Even though she had seen many huge trees, she was still astonished by the tree in front of her.
