Chapter 467: The Tiger Village (8)
Curtis glided down a story. After a bout of vibration, quietness was restored in the tree hole.
“Let’s be softer.” Bai Qingqing lowered her voice as she drank her soup and sized up Parker with her peripheral vision.
Parker must have seen what happened last night.
After finis.h.i.+ng the bowl of hot soup, Bai Qingqing asked, “Where are the babies?”
“Playing downstairs.” Parker gazed outside.
Bai Qingqing looked outside as well and saw that her little cubs were having fun on the ground and that two tiger cubs about their age had run over to sneak an attack on them.
As the leopard cubs weren’t as strong as the tiger cubs, they constantly fell backward from being pounced upon. It was a pity though, the leopard cubs hadn’t many teeth yet, so their bites didn’t have any impact on the tiger cubs.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t resist smiling as she watched them roll about on the ground. She poked at Parker’s tummy and asked, “Do leopard cubs tend to be weaker in their infancy?”
Parker instantly reb.u.t.ted. “They’re still babies. When our physiques mature, we’ll be able to display our advantages.”
Bai Qingqing nodded to express that she understood.
She went down the tree and ate some meat, before asking Parker to bring her to the river to wash up. The cubs of the two species bit and fought as they followed along.
There was a waterhole in the center of the tiger village. One look at the color and one would know that it was rather deep. Bai Qingqing had just squatted beside the water when a human head bobbed to the surface.
“Bai Qingqing, you’re finally here to see me.” As Bluepool spoke, he gazed around before saying with a frown, “The females here are so annoying.”
Bai Qingqing cast another glance at Bluepool’s three animal stripes and striking good looks. He’s the kind that’s popular with the females. Seems like Bluepool had plenty of females expressing interest in him yesterday.
“Isn’t that wonderful? You’re free to choose the one you fancy.”
Bluepool slapped his fishtail in frustration, forming ripples on the water surface. “They’re ugly and tanned. Just let me be your mate, I’m too lazy to search for one.”
“Ooh!” Parker instantly let out a low growl from his throat as he waved a paw at Bluepool, his head bobbing above the surface on Bai Qingqing’s other side.
Bai Qingqing smiled helplessly. “If there’s a chance, I’ll ask the beastmen here if there are bigger villages in the vicinity.”
“You’re Bai Qingqing?”
From behind sounded the voice of a female. Bai Qingqing, who was in the midst of brus.h.i.+ng her teeth, rinsed her mouth and turned around. “You are?”
A young female clad in a tiger-skin tube top and short skirt came jogging over. With her flattering curves, she looked like a pet.i.te and s.e.xy wild cat.
Her facial features were a little more proportionate than Becky’s, and her skin was also a shade fairer. Judging based on past experience, Bai Qingqing deduced that this should be a female of the G.o.ddess level in the tribe.
“My father is the head of the tiger tribe in this village. He asked me to invite you guys over to our house,” the female said as she huffed and puffed after running to the lakeside.
“Ah, okay. Wait for a while,” Bai Qingqing replied. She quickly washed her face.
The tribal head of the tiger clan lived just near that waterhole. At first glance, Bai Qingqing caught sight of that man standing under the tree, with three animal stripes on his face, who appeared to be in his prime.
When the tribal head saw Bai Qingqing and Parker, he went straight to the point. “I’m the tribal head of the tiger clan, Will. I ought to have visited you yesterday, but…”
Bai Qingqing felt her heartbeat getting messed up. Surely the tribal head didn’t hear her doing it with Curtis yesterday?
F*ck. She even managed to disgrace herself in front of another tribe.
“Are you accustomed to staying here?” Will asked amiably. He didn’t at all display the ferociousness of a beastman when facing a female.
“It’s nice staying here. The tree hole is very comfortable,” Bai Qingqing replied politely.
Parker sized up the tribal head’s physique and compared himself to the latter. He asked, “You’re here to talk about the accommodation matter with us, aren’t you?”
