Chapter 430: I Want to See Qingqing
Bluepool swam leisurely back to the cave.
Bai Qingqing was feeding the children. She was surprised when she realized that there was someone else when she felt a few strands of icy-cold hair landing on her shoulders. She quickly pulled up her clothes.
The leopard cubs refused to let go, causing their mother’s shoulder to be exposed.
Bluepool opened his eyes wide and asked, “What are you doing?”
Bai Qingqing turned her back to him, infuriated. “Didn’t you go out to look for the snake? Why are you back?”
“I sent the others in the village to look for him. As long as he’s in this sea domain, I’ll have him dug out even if he’s buried in the soil.”
Bai Qingqing’s countenance cleared up, and her lips curled up. “Thank you.”
Bluepool then said, “You haven’t told me what you’re doing. Why are you letting them bite you? Are they being naughty?”
She flushed. How was she going to tell an oviparity virgin guy such an awkward topic about viviparity?
“I’m feeding the cubs. Some beastmen on land do this.”
Bluepool nodded as if he had learned something. He said, “So females have this function as well.”
Bai Qingqing smiled awkwardly.
“That snake beastman was the one who stole you away back then, right?” Bluepool looked at her back view and suddenly asked.
Bai Qingqing knew that Bluepool would have his suspicions and said calmly, “He’s not.”
Although it was true that Jean had been stolen by Curtis, and she had been s.n.a.t.c.hed by Curtis before as well, she wasn’t stolen from the bottom of the sea. Therefore, she was able to openly deny this.
“That mate of yours can dive in the water for a long period of time and is so amazing as well. If it wasn’t him, then who could it be?” Bluepool only realized this after agreeing to Bai Qingqing’s request. “But don’t worry. Since I’ve promised you, I will get it done. If it really was him, then even if I don’t look for him, he’d still come back if he wishes to steal you away. It doesn’t matter.”
Bai Qingqing turned her head to look toward him, smiling. “Thank you. You’re a good guy.”
Bluepool nodded in agreement. “Then you must call for me often in the future, laying the most fish eggs for me.”
Bai Qingqing was rendered speechless. She had felt a little touched earlier, but that emotion was instantly extinguished.
“King is getting old. You’ve given birth to so many merfolks for him. You can look for younger ones like me.”
Bai Qingqing silently turned her head back. After saying so much, it seemed that only the last line was the emphasis.
The merfolk’s female was even more impressive than the emperors from the ancient times, having a harem of several ten thousand.
Bai Qingqing pinched her cheeks that couldn’t help but want to grin. Be calm. Don’t smile.
She couldn’t feel at ease to feed the children in front of a member of the opposite gender. She got Bluepool to go up the sh.o.r.es to look for Parker to cook more food for her. When he saw that Bai Qingqing had to use her own nutrition to feed the three male cubs, Bluepool went out without saying a word.
Parker was still sitting on the beach, and he stood up when he saw Bluepool. He quickly ran toward the sea.
A hint of surprise flashed in Bluepool’s eyes. Had this leopard beastman been sitting here, facing the sea in a daze all this while?
If that was the case, then the males on land were too devoted. If he was in his shoes, he wouldn’t have stayed here all this while. Wouldn’t it be better to stay under the tree’s shade while waiting?
No wonder Qingqing liked the males from the land so much. In this aspect, they merfolks couldn’t be compared to them.
Bluepool had brought fish, but Parker didn’t use them. He just took out a heavy container.
Bluepool was about to receive it when Parker drew his hand back.
“I want to see Bai Qinqing.”
“I can’t call the shot for this. Our female is under layers of protection, and she can only come out with the leader’s agreement.”
