Chapter 350: Watching Others Flaunt Their Love From the Side
This tree didn’t look like a natural plant at all. Its diameter was at least 100 meters and no one would think of it as a tree with just one look. It looked more like a wall that had tree-print wallpaper pasted on it.
The vines dangling down from the branches were woven into a spiraling staircase, revolving around the trunk. It had clearly been woven for many years, and the vines were squeezed into a rope. Their surfaces were all stuck together.
As Bai Qingqing stepped on it, the staircase started to swing.
She let out a cry and anxiously grabbed onto a vine handle at the side. However, the handle wasn’t stable either and her entire body swung on the staircase.
“So stupid.” The young beastman’s tone sounded extremely impatient as he threw a glance at her.
“Quickly catch up. I still have to peel pine nuts for Bella. Otherwise, she’ll get angry.”
“I’m sorry. I’ll help you to peel them later,” Bai Qingqing said apologetically.
The young beastman’s countenance improved a little and he turned to head upward.
When Bai Qingqing saw that the young beastman was walking steadily, she took in a deep breath, then slowly raised her leg. The staircase finally stopped wobbling.
“I’m Bai Qingqing. May I know how to address you?”
The young beastman paused for quite a while. Just as Bai Qingqing thought that she wouldn’t get any reply, he replied half-heartedly, “Alva.”
“Alva. It’s a good name,” Bai Qingqing said politely, then immediately regretted it. The females in this world were all very precious, and praises like this would probably be treated as favorable attention from the female.
As expected, Alva let out a cold snort and said in a disdainful voice, “Don’t try to have any ideas on me. I won’t like you, ugly female.”
Bai Qingqing was rendered speechless.
She immediately felt that life was very arduous.
Muir, come back quickly! I can’t withstand this by myself!
Alva came to a stop at a spot that was 20 meters above the ground. He walked up a branch that had a diameter of two meters. The leaves were lush at the end of the branch and it hid a wooden house that wasn’t big but was very exquisite.
“Why was it so noisy earlier?” A female’s voice rang out from the wooden house. It sounded very young.
Bai Qingqing took a look inside out of curiosity and two brown pine nut sh.e.l.ls came flying out.
“Why are you back only now? I’ve finished all the pine nuts and can only peel them myself,” said the female inside.
Unlike how cold Alva had treated Bai Qingqing, he anxiously walked over in big strides, speaking in a pacifying tone, “It’s all my fault. I should have peeled more yesterday. An eagle beastman came to entrust a female to our care. As the female is pregnant, I agreed.”
“You’re the next head of the tribe. If you want to let her stay, then do it.” There was a hint of jealousy in the female’s voice as she probed her head out.
Bai Qingqing thought to herself that these two were really a couple. She raised her head slightly and looked toward them.
This female by the name of Bella had smooth, shoulder-length, grayish-blue hair. This was her most attractive feature. What came next would be her long lashes.
Other than that, she was about the same as the females from the City of Beastmen. She had dull yellowish skin, a flat nose, as well as thin but intentionally pouting lips. This might appear to be s.e.xy and cute to the males, but she just felt that it was a little pretentious. However, she was definitely considered a great beauty considering how confident she was.
Bai Qingqing was used to the inequality between the appearances of males and females, so she wasn’t really surprised. She lowered her head after taking a glance, greeting in a soft voice.
“h.e.l.lo, I’m Bai Qingqing.”
“Ahh!” Bella let out a cry in surprise. “So ugly!”
Alva half-knelt by Bella’s side, wearing a hurt expression.
