Chapter 432: Can’t Find

Bai Qingqing had also heard the merfolk’s message. So, when Bluepool came, she anxiously asked, “How is it? Did you find him?”

Bluepool lowered his head and said without confidence, “Not yet.”

A disappointed expression appeared on Bai Qingqing’s face. “It has only been half a day. It’s still early.”

Bluepool didn’t dare to tell her that they formed large groups and had already combed through this part of the ocean domain. They hadn’t even let go of the graveyard’s vicinity.

“Are you sure he’s nearby?” Bluepool couldn’t help but doubt her.

Bai Qingqing said with certainty, “I’m sure. Beastmen and their mates share a sense, and given that even I can sense it, it means that he must be nearby.”

Bluepool had also heard of this before. He just had no idea if females could also sense males as well. Since she said that, then he’d believe it.

“Alright. I’ll continue the search.”

Where could he be? They had searched everywhere, except for the graveyard. However, he couldn’t be at the graveyard. No living creature could survive under the temperature there. Even if he wished to go down to search, he couldn’t.

The leopard cubs were deep asleep. Bai Qingqing’s lips were so cold that they had turned pale. She could only hug the cubs to get some warmth.

In the daytime, she had already gotten Bluepool to bring her animal skin down. However, those pieces of animal skins were all very thin, and she still felt cold after wrapping herself up in them. Clothes for the cold season would only be made after the heavy rainy season.

Thankfully, although the leopard cubs were young, they were males. So, they didn’t have any discomfort in such a cold environment.

“Why are you trembling so much? Are you very cold?” Bluepool touched Bai Qingqing’s forehead. “It’s hot.”

Bai Qingqing puffed out a white breath and replied with a trembling voice, “You’re the one who is too cold.”

Bluepool took a long look at her before suddenly saying, “I’m now really suspecting that you’re not Jean.”

“I’m really not.” Bai Qingqing’s words might seem like a statement by itself, but when connected with Bluepool’s words, it sounded like a joke.

Bluepool didn’t take it seriously and said, “It might be because you’ve gotten used to living on land and can’t get used to it for now. I’ll hug you while you sleep.”

Bai Qingqing didn’t object since there was an animal skin between them. It would be a lot warmer with someone wrapping it around her tightly.

The next day.

Despite spending a cold night at the bottom of the sea, Bai Qingqing didn’t catch a cold the next day. She felt some admiration for herself.

The arms around her were extremely heavy, making her arms feel so sore. They were holding tightly onto her, and she was unable to pull them off.

“Hey, get up.”

She put up a struggle.

The leopard cubs had woken up a long time ago, and they came running over when hearing their mother’s voice. They collided into their mother’s chest.

As Bai Qingqing was wrapped too tightly by the animal skin, the leopard cubs were unable to eat after waking up.

Bluepool woke up when he heard the sounds and let go of her. He suddenly stopped in his actions, his nose twitching.

“Do you smell something weird?”

Bai Qingqing looked around and pointed to a few piles of unknown things further into the cave. “Are you referring to those?”

“What are those?” Bluepool’s fishtail turned into a pair of legs. He stood up and walked inside, leaving a half-concealed, half-exposed back to her as his long hair draped down.

Bai Qingqing turned her head and moved her body.


Bluepool suddenly let out a loud cry. “Isn’t there a chamber pot? Why did they p.o.o.p outside?”

Bai Qingqing rubbed her nose. “This is the leopard beastmen’s nature.”

Bluepool wore an expression as if he was valiantly facing death as he used a piece of dried seaweed to pick up the cubs’ feces, and then quickly tossed them into the chamber pot. Only then did he open his mouth and took in huge breaths of air. He still felt that there was a strange scent in the air.

“This won’t do. I’ll change the air in the cave right away.”

Pa.s.sing by her, he asked, “Don’t you find it smelly?”

Bai Qingqing carried Third and said, “I don’t. I’m used to it.”

“Meow—” Third opened his mouth and rubbed against her chest.
