Chapter 483: Matchmake for Bluepool (4)
Ford had a tall and burly figure, looking very dignified and impressive. He held a stone bowl as he walked over, not looking up.
“Can you share some food with me?” After saying that, Ford immediately said, “I’ll bring over an entire prey later in return.”
Bai Qingqing quickly swallowed the food in her mouth, pa.s.sing him the bowl of chestnut chicken she had prepared for Becky. “I’ve already prepared some for Becky. It’s good that you’re here.”
Ford’s hand paused. He took the bowl, poured the food into his bowl, then returned the bowl to Bai Qingqing.
Seeing that he looked restrained, Bai Qingqing said, “No need for thanks. You’ve given me p.r.i.c.kly fruits as well. There’s no need to return us food.”
When Ford heard the female’s casual and magnanimous tone, he felt a strong sense of relief. As a young and robust male, it wasn’t honorable to be asking others for food. However, Becky didn’t often make requests. How could he not satisfy her?
“I’ll still have to return the food. This is the rule. When will you guys be eating again? I’ll send it over on time.” Ford insisted.
Parker didn’t stand on ceremony with him. He took a look at the sky and said, “You can bring it over in the evening.”
“Alright.” Ford agreed and straightened.
Bai Qingqing asked while eating, “Did Becky ask you to come? She smelled the fragrance?”
Ford broke into a simple-minded smile and quickly replied, “Yes. She immediately reacted when the fragrance drifted into the tree hole. She tugged my hand and said that she wanted to eat it.”
Bai Qingqing let out a stifled laugh. She was really a foodie. Great food was as good as medicine for her.
“Tell her that I’ll go and visit her later. I’ve prepared other good food for her.”
Ford agreed happily, then brought the steaming food and headed back quickly and steadily.
When the other beastmen nearby saw that Ford had gotten some food, they didn’t look down on him, but instead, wore an envious gaze. The food smelled so nice. They really wanted to have a taste.
“You want to roast chestnuts for Becky?” Parker thought of what she said and told, “We’ve peeled all the p.r.i.c.kly sh.e.l.ls, and they’re easily charred. Moreover, aren’t there chestnuts in the pot?”
“The taste is different. Hotpot is the main dish and will be finished after a meal.” Bai Qingqing said, “Use the pot to toast the chestnuts. Toast more. We can eat it slowly.”
Parker added more firewood into the fire, saying indulgently, “Alright. I’ll toast them right away.”
Bai Qingqing grinned, then said, “Oh, right. Do you know where there’s sand? It’ll be easier to toast after adding sand.”
The tiger tribe’s toilet was also the sandpit. Bai Qingqing was sure that there was sand in the vicinity.
“Really? I’ll go look for it right away.” Parker stood up. He then added, “Our sandpit will need to be changed as well. It’s filled with other people’s scent.”
“It’s alright.” Bai Qingqing wasn’t able to smell anything, anyway.
Parker was about to head out when Curtis stopped him with his tail. “I’ll go.”
“Do you know how to choose? We want loose ones.”
Curtis threw him a cold glance, then headed out with an animal skin bag.
While waiting for Curtis, Molly brought over a bundle of teak that had been washed. Bai Qingqing told her to go back first, then brought the stone oil extractor to Parker. Parker also felt that it wasn’t convenient to have no plant oil and immediately went to take care of that.
Parker forged a pile of stone tools and extracted a small barrel of oil. Only then did Curtis return with a bag of sand.
“Why did you take so long? Qingqing is going to get hungry again,” Parker said, feeling displeased. He quickly added more firewood to the almost extinguished fire.
Bai Qingqing poked her head out from the tree hole after hearing the voices. She put out her arms, asking to be carried. “Quickly carry me down. Let’s toast chestnuts.”
