Chapter 411 Merfolk Suddenly Appeared
Her nails were immediately filled with sand.
“It’s been very long since I’ve trimmed my nails. It feels really uncomfortable.” Bai Qingqing sc.r.a.ped her nails.
Her fingernails were soft and broke easily. She used to trim them once every two weeks in the past, but it had been two to three months since she had last cut them. Her fingers felt very uncomfortable. Her toenails were in a slightly better condition, but they were due to be trimmed as well.
Parker held onto one of Bai Qingqing’s hands and brought it in front of him. “I’ll bite them off for you.” “How are you going to do that?” Bai Qingqing said in disbelief, trying to take her hand back. Parker tightened his grip, not letting her pull away. He suddenly thought of something and laughed. “Before I reached maturity, I often saw males helping their mate to bite their nails, and I wanted to try it out. However, you have that hard nail clipper, so I never had the chance in the past.” After saying that, he pried up one of Bai Qingqing’s fingers and started biting.
“Hey!” Bai Qingqing let out a soft gasp and hit Parker’s head without much force. “You’re really biting them? There’s no way that it can be done well this way. Don’t break my nails.”
A “Kacha” sound rang out, and a crisp sound rang out from Parker’s mouth. That sound was clean and sharp, similar to that from a nail clipper.
Bai Qingqing paused and moved her finger.
“It really works?” Bai Qingqing looked at Parker’s mouth in disbelief.
His teeth were sharp, and Bai Qingqing’s nails were as crispy as instant noodles in his mouth. They broke off after he took an aim and then bit down.
With her finger in his mouth, Parker’s voice sounded a little m.u.f.fled. “Keep an eye on the children. Don’t let them go into the forest. They’d be s.n.a.t.c.hed by those out hunting.”
“En.” Bai Qingqing nodded in reply.
The leopard cubs jumped on the beach, then kicked up the sand with their hind feet. They would also run alongside each other happily as if they were in a compet.i.tion.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t understand their childish meows but still felt that it was interesting to look at them like this.
Under the sunlight, the surface of the sea glimmered. The waves slapped onto the beach continuously, bringing forth white ripples. A pair of blue eyes close to the surface of the blue sea didn’t stand out. Bai Qingqing was looking at the children, unaware that someone was also looking at her.
Bluepool was a strong beastman amongst the new generation of the merfolk tribe. He was in his twenties but was already a three-striped beastman. He was the youngest male merfolk who had the right to mate with the tribe’s only female.
Today, he had mindlessly swum to the sh.o.r.es but didn’t expect to see their merfolk tribe’s female there.
Oh my G.o.d! How’s that possible? Why is our tribe’s female on the sh.o.r.es?
Who is that male? He isn’t merfolk! Why would the female be so intimate with him?
Bluepool was sure that the female on the beach was the only female in his tribe, Jean.
Although he had only seen his tribe’s female in the year he was born, he had yet to hatch then and hadn’t seen her in person. However, he had heard that Jean had skin that was fair as pearls and long hair that was soft and smooth like seaweed.He had seen several females on land, people who were offered to them by smaller villages who couldn’t afford to use food to trade for salt. Those females were all very dark and were worlds apart from this female. He’d never accept those females offered to them.
This female was unlike those from the land. She was definitely from their merfolk tribe!
This was bad! This was big trouble! Their female had been s.n.a.t.c.hed! He must go back and report this to their leader immediately.
Bluepool took one final look at the female on the sh.o.r.es and then dived into the sea.
Parker suddenly looked at the sea.
That was strange. Something seemed to be staring at him earlier. Was it a delusion?
Bai Qingqing moved her fingers. “Are you done?”
“En, I’m done. Take a look to see if you like it.” Parker drew back his gaze, waiting for her reaction in antic.i.p.ation.
