Chapter 386: The Heavy Rainy Season Is Coming
“What do you want to make this animal skin into? I’ll get it done and bring it to you,” said Alva as he backed off.
“There’s really no need. Give it to some other female,” Bai Qingqing said.
“Then I’ll make a set of clothes for you. Goodbye.”
After saying that, Alva turned and ran off before she could respond.
Bai Qingqing let out a helpless sigh.
The extent of how badly Alva had treated her back then was as intense as how hard he was trying to woo her now. Both were done in the same style.
Muir took a look at the animal skin at his waist and said, “It’s my bad. I forgot to make new clothes for you, causing you only to have one piece of clothing to wear.”
Bai Qingqing smiled and said, “Curtis’s snakeskin isn’t like animal skin and can be worn immediately after was.h.i.+ng. I don’t need to change my clothes and wash them. Moreover, Parker said that animal skins are the best after the heavy rainy season. The animal skin in this season drops hair very easily.”
Muir took note of this.
It was no wonder the animal skin clothing he made wasn’t as good as what Bai Qingqing used to wear. So this was the reason.
Faint sounds of beast roar rang out from the surroundings, but they didn’t sound too clear in the s.p.a.cious forest and amidst the continuous sound of the waves. Bai Qingqing looked around, unsure if she had misheard it.
Even though eagle beastmen didn’t have a good sense of hearing, it was still 100 times sharper than that of a female’s. His heart tensed up and stood up, saying, “The wind outside is strong. Don’t catch a cold. I’ll carry you up to the wooden house to rest.”
Bai Qingqing was feeling a little sleepy after the meal and thus nodded in agreement.
Parker went around the peac.o.c.k village for a few rounds. This group of peac.o.c.ks clearly had their guards up against him. They were many times stricter on their watch as when he had just come.
Unable to sneak in yet unable to beat them either, Parker could only feel anxious as he hung around outside the village.
He had no idea what was going on with Curtis. The other area had a lot of his scent, but there was nothing at the peac.o.c.k village. Clearly, he hadn’t been here.
Sigh, if he knew this would happen, he wouldn’t have thrown Winston off his tracks. With him around, what would a couple of three-striped beastmen matter?
Parker hid near the peac.o.c.k village every day, waiting for a chance to make his move. Bird-typed beastmen had excellent vision, and he would always be detected when he was about to get close to the village.
A few days later, Parker saw Muir, whom he had almost forgotten.
The black eagle was holding onto a sea fish with his mouth, and he flew into the peac.o.c.k village without any obstruction.
Parker looked at the black eagle calmly. Why do I have to be stopped outside, yet Muir can get in?
All bird-typed beastmen belonged to the same family. It must be Muir who wanted to keep him out of the village.
Parker, laying hidden amongst the gra.s.s, dug his toes fiercely into the ground. His golden eyes slightly narrowed as he stared at the black eagle, emitting a dangerous glow.
Over the past two days, Bai Qingqing had a strong preference for fish and prawns. The braised fish today perked up her appet.i.te, and her stomach became even more prominent.
Touching her stomach that was like a small watermelon, Bai Qingqing let out a sigh in her heart. It was a lot easier to be pregnant with leopard cubs than young snakes. Her stomach wasn’t as big in comparison.
It was no wonder Curtis said that giving birth was harmful to the body and had intentionally not mated with her so that she wouldn’t lay any more snake eggs.
As Muir said this, he habitually lowered his head and put it against Bai Qingqing’s stomach.
Such an intimate act often happened between the two of them, and Bai Qingqing felt that it wasn’t good. Muir was behaving too much like he was the children’s father.
“The children aren’t moving now. You won’t be able to hear anything,” said Bai Qingqing, pus.h.i.+ng his head away.
Muir remained in the same position and looked up at her face, a slight smile appearing on his masculine face. “I like to listen to their movements. I can hear something.”
“Really?” Bai Qingqing was surprised. She also wanted to bend over to listen, but she couldn’t put her ear on her stomach unless she were to remove her head.
