Chapter 462: The Tiger Village (3)
Amid the beastmen’s shocked gasps, the middle-aged female refused to believe her. She declared with conviction, “That’s impossible! My mates are in the village every day.”
Becky glanced at the middle-aged female with bitter hatred in her tiny eyes.
The middle-aged female seemed to recall something, which made her say in a startled voice, “Don’t tell me it’s him.”
Becky turned her head away and started sobbing in a restrained manner.
In those few days before Becky was abducted, a male who had left home to strike it out on his own had returned. When he left he only had one animal stripe, but when he returned he had leveled up to three stripes.
As Becky’s mother used to have a spousal relations.h.i.+p with him, Becky had felt it was a pity for her mother then. This was because her mother had despised that tiger beastman for being useless, so she canceled her spousal relations.h.i.+p with him back then. Yet now, he had become one of the most formidable beastmen in the village.
It didn’t occur to them that he was back to seek revenge.
“Why did he harm me and not you?” Becky laid a hand over her chest and stared at her mother with resentment in her eyes. “He even killed my mate and tortured me with the other beastmen.”
The middle-aged female abruptly froze. She was so stunned that she didn’t manage to utter a single word for a long time.
All the beastmen had thought that it was a feral beast who had abducted Becky. They could never have imagined that it was a male from their own tribe. Even Bai Qingqing was shocked by this revelation.
So it turned out this wasn’t just a random atrocity, but because they bore hatred in their hearts. Yet, they still loved their mates deeply, so they transferred that hatred to the female cub whom their spouse most dearly adored.
She knew that feral beasts weren’t as wicked as they were made out to be; feral beasts only abducted females to get themselves a spouse, so there was no need for them to torture the females. She wondered how many wrongful accusations were borne by the feral beasts.
Just as she was lost in her thoughts, she suddenly felt a piercing pain, causing her to yelp.
Curtis instantly crawled into the tree hole, held Bai Qingqing’s shoulders, and nervously asked, “What’s the matter?”
Parker also transformed into a leopard and crawled into the tree hole speedily, squeezing beside Curtis.
Bai Qingqing’s face was wrinkled into a bun as she gently flicked Eldest’s head. “Be gentler. You bit Mommy so hard it hurts.”
Curtis yanked Eldest’s body away from her, and Parker also reached out a hand to pry open his mouth. Under the cooperation of the duo, they forced the cub’s mouth open.
Bai Qingqing’s face quietly turned red.
“What are you guys doing? Baby hasn’t drunk his fill,” Bai Qingqing slapped Parker’s hand away and said with a blus.h.i.+ng face.
“Let me take a look.” Without waiting for her to protest, Curtis raised Bai Qingqing’s hand with heartache at the sight before his eyes.
This one month of breastfeeding had turned the tiny dot on Bai Qingqing’s chest into the size of a small red date. Right now, the milk upon it was mixed with a trace of blood, indicating that the skin over it was broken.
Something suddenly occurred to Bai Qingqing, making her eyes light up. “Is Eldest teething?”
Roar! Eldest, who was still being held in Curtis’s grasp, twisted his body disobediently as he gazed at his mommy asking to be fed.
Bai Qingqing was just about to check Eldest’s mouth when Curtis suddenly edged closer. He flicked out his slim, long, and forked tongue to lick away the bloodied milk.
It was as though something had exploded in Bai Qingqing’s brain, instantly turning her tender and fair face red as a tomato.
She didn’t feel anything when her babies bit her, yet Curtis’s simple act made her heart abruptly skip a beat, and the skin all over her body turned a pinkish shade, the color of peach blossom petals.
Curtis retracted his tongue and smacked his lips, as though he was savoring the taste.
Only then did Bai Qingqing sober up. She slapped Curtis’s face and pushed him away.
