Chapter 435: Survival Plan
“I don’t know. It could be that Jean wishes to return to the sea. Once she does, you’ll be in danger. This won’t do, I must take you away.” The more Parker spoke, the more agitated he became. His golden eyes moved about rapidly as he took note of the mermen around them.
Bai Qingqing thought of this as well and felt anxious. However, her mind was calm.
“If you bring me along, neither of us will be able to escape. The mermen are all down there. Their numbers are beyond your imagination,” Bai Qingqing said softly.
Parker looked toward the ocean. When he came, he had sensed countless gazes in the water. It seemed that their numbers were greater than what he had thought.
“There’s still Alva. He’ll get a chance to bring you away.”
“Then what about you?” Bai Qingqing immediately asked.
Would Parker be able to escape when surrounded by so many of them?
She had gained some understanding of the merfolk by now. They weren’t as romantic and gentle as what the fairytales made them out to be. They were like the beastmen, or even colder. They were a little like Curtis.
If she were to escape, they’d definitely kill Parker to vent their fury.
Parker fixed his gaze on Bai Qingqing’s face and planted a kiss on her lips. “Your safety is the most important. Bring the cubs with you.”
Parker then turned to the cubs and said, “Come over.”
The cubs had been cooped up in the sea for an entire day, and they were having so much fun to be finally out in the sun again. They looked at their father unwillingly and didn’t move immediately.
Parker squinted his eyes, showing fury and impatience in his gaze. Only then did the cubs come running over.
Bai Qingqing picked up Third and threw a reproachful glare at Parker. “Don’t be so fierce to the cubs. I don’t agree with this. You’ll definitely die. We must all be well… I still have another idea.”
She threw a glance toward Bluepool. He had been staring at her, and when his gaze met Bai Qingqing’s, he immediately broke into a wide grin.
Bai Qingqing smiled at him as well.
Bluepool felt overwhelmed to receive this unexpected favor.
“They don’t know that I’m not Jean. The merfolk’s leader lied to them. I want to go back and tell him about this. He was the one who brought me to the sea, and knowing my situation, he’d definitely feel guilty and bring me to the sh.o.r.e.”
Parker also looked toward Bluepool. The latter’s expression changed and didn’t even bother to look at him.
“Your impression of him isn’t bad?” Parker sounded jealous.
Bai Qingqing was feeling very anxious at this moment and threw him a harsh glare. “Take a look at the situation. You bring along the cubs while I’ll go with them to the sea myself. I’ll find a chance to make things clear to Bluepool.”
“Are you confident?”
Bai Qingqing sounded very certain, but Parker was still not at ease. He asked, “Then, why hand the cubs to me? I don’t have any milk to feed them with.”
“It’ll definitely work. Bluepool is very nice.”
Regardless of what the chances were like, Bai Qingqing had to act as if she’d definitely succeed. Otherwise, Parker definitely wouldn’t allow her to take the risk.
“I’m just worried about the cubs. It’d be too dangerous if an accident happened and they were to fall into the water or something. It’d be safer for them to be with you. Just find a lactating female leopard and wait for me to come back.”
Parker was still young and hadn’t spent enough time with her. He naturally didn’t wish to die. After hesitating for quite a while, he finally nodded. “Then, be quick. I’ll wait for you at the beach.”
Jean would be coming at any moment. Time was tight. After they were done with their discussion, Bai Qingqing walked out.
“So fast?” Bluepool quickly walked toward her. He could accept them spending a little more time together, but of course, it’d be better if they could end things earlier.
Parker threw a glance at his reproductive organ, then stood in front of Bai Qingqing, blocking her view.
“Parker.” Bai Qingqing called out softly behind him.
