Chapter 468: The Tiger Village (9)
Will cast Parker a look of approval. “That’s right. Seems like you’re the descendant of a tribal head, to be so experienced in such matters.”
“My father is the leopard king,” Parker said in an aloof manner.
Even though the tribal head wasn’t a young lad, he was still shocked to hear this.
It was only when one earned four animal stripes was he fit to be a beast king. No wonder the male before him already had three animal stripes at such a young age—so it turned out bloodline was so important.
Will’s att.i.tude towards Bai Qingqing and Parker became even more affable now. He said, “Since you like it here, why don’t you stay here for good? Our village is considered the strongest among the neighboring villages. Moreover, the cold season is coming soon. A female will easily fall sick roaming outside.”
Bai Qingqing—who was just fretting over how she could shamelessly stay on in this place—was ecstatic at the offer.
“Okay.” Bai Qingqing immediately agreed. Then, she looked towards Parker. “What do you say?”
Will heaved a sigh of relief. He suddenly said to Parker, “You said your father is the leopard king. Did you come from the City of Beastmen?”
“That’s right,” Parker replied in the same aloof manner.
Will then said, “Previously, a tiger king came to our village. He’s also from the City of Beastmen. Perhaps you two might know him.”
“Winston?” Bai Qingqing asked in astonishment.
“Indeed, you do know him. That’s right, his name is Winston,” Will said.
Bai Qingqing smiled and glanced at Parker. Upon seeing his completely uninterested expression, she looked towards the tribal head. “When did he come? And why did he leave?”
“He came a month ago. He said he was looking for the female he was guarding. Since he didn’t find her in the village, he left.” Will raised an eyebrow and gazed at Bai Qingqing with interest. “You’re the female he was looking for, aren’t you?”
Bai Qingqing didn’t manage to force a smile.
A month ago? It had been so long, and Winston was still looking for her? He didn’t have a spousal mark, how was he going to find her without any clues?
Parker, whose countenance had turned dark, pulled her hand and said, “Let’s go.”
Bai Qingqing yanked her hand away and stared at Will as she asked, “Did he say when he would be coming back again?”
Will’s gaze roamed between Parker and Bai Qingqing. He naturally knew that Parker was jealous. But as a fellow tiger beastman, he certainly had to help the tiger king.
“Because we’re the tiger tribe, he said if he didn’t manage to find the female next year, he would come back to visit us. If you guys wait, you should be able to see him.”
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. “That’s great.”
She couldn’t bear for Winston to go on searching for her endlessly.
Parker forced a smile and said, “If you’re done talking, let’s go.”
With that, he pulled her and prepared to leave. Bai Qingqing twisted her head and flashed an apologetic smile at the tribal head before leaving with him.
Will glanced at the young female by the side and said, “Molly, bring Bai Qingqing around to play. She’s just arrived and has yet to familiarize herself with the place.”
“Okay.” Molly agreed enthusiastically, before catching up to Parker and Bai Qingqing. She hooked her arm around Bai Qingqing’s in a friendly manner, as though they had known each other for a long time.
“I saw you eating weeds just now. Do you like to eat that? Let’s go play by the waterhole.”
Bai Qingqing’s mouth twitched. “I was brus.h.i.+ng my teeth.”
Molly turned her head sideways at Bai Qingqing, a perplexed look in her eyes. “Why do you need to brush your teeth? Did meat get stuck between your teeth?”
Seeing that Molly’s teeth were slightly yellowish, Bai Qingqing knew that she didn’t have the concept of brus.h.i.+ng teeth. Hence, she explained, “No, I was just using the weed to cleanse my teeth, so that my teeth will look whiter. Look.”
Bai Qingqing revealed her teeth.
Molly’s mouth dropped open. “So white, just like a male’s.”
“If you brush your teeth daily, they will become white too.”
