Chapter 490: Dealing With the Aftermath (4)

The opportunity to mate was less than one hundred in more than tens of thousands. How tragic were the males of this tribe?

“You’re incredible to have received the opportunity to mate under such intense compet.i.tion.”

Bai Qingqing truly admired him for achieving this feat.

Bluepool gleefully raised an eyebrow. He looked towards Bai Qingqing, his long and curly blue lashes adding a bewitching charm to his gaze. Under the gentle glow of the luminous pearl, this enchanting quality was greatly enhanced.

The Bai Qingqing who had just transmigrated to this world would most certainly have swooned over such good looks.

Thankfully, she was experienced by now. After a momentary pause, she turned away and sized up the nest seriously. She critiqued. “Very good. It’s just a little cramped, though. Don’t you think so? It’s fine if it’s just you living here alone. Now that the two of us have entered, there isn’t any s.p.a.ce for us to move around.”

Bluepool merely smiled and didn’t reply.

Since there weren’t other merfolk around, why did he need such a huge place? If it were cramped, he would be able to hold the female more tightly and interact with her more intimately.


When Bai Qingqing touched the wall, she found, to her surprise, that it felt smooth. She asked, “Why are there also bubbles in there? I remember you only sealed the entrance of the cave back in the sea.”

“The earth here is moist. If I don’t keep it out using the bubble, water would seep in and cause it to collapse. That’s bad for females.”

Though Bluepool’s words sounded logical, one would detect his desire towards Bai Qingqing if they were to ponder over what he said. He wasn’t planning on getting a tiger female spouse, yet he was designing the nest with a female’s needs in mind.

Bai Qingqing, who quickly realized this, said, “Send me back up. I’ve been gone for too long. Parker’s going to get anxious.”

Bluepool’s brows drooped instantly. “You’ve only been here for a short while.”

“I also spent some time at Molly’s talking to her.”

As Bluepool’s phobia of Curtis was too deep, he didn’t dare insist on her staying. So, he blew a bubble and sent her out.

Meanwhile, Parker was letting out low growls by the water, with the three little cubs by his feet roaring following his cue.

Seeing the two of them float to the surface, Parker instantly a.s.sumed a posture that he was going to jump into the water to fight with Bluepool.

Bai Qingqing instantly squeezed her way out of the bubble and yanked Parker’s fur. “Let’s go back.”

“Pff!” Parker sneezed, before running back with Bai Qingqing riding on his back.

Curtis captured more than ten prey with thick and pretty fur, which Parker tanned into animal skins and laid under the tree to dry.

After the prey was skinned, they were smoked as usual.

About this aspect, the tiger village and the City of Beastmen were similar. The males were kept busy as the smell of blood and smoked meat wafted through the entire village.

Without any thick items of clothing, Bai Qingqing had no choice but to remain inside the tree hole. After the animal skin dried, Curtis took her measurements so that he could make her clothes.

“You’ve grown fatter,” Curtis said mercilessly as he measured Bai Qingqing’s chest.

Bai Qingqing, who didn’t realize which area he was talking about, pinched her tummy in alarm. “Really? I only grew a little bit fatter, right?”

She felt that she had regained her figure pretty well. But she figured others would be able to judge more accurately because one tended to beautify in their minds what they saw in the mirror.

Curtis grabbed Bai Qingqing’s chest and said with a serious expression, “Your chest became plumper. You didn’t realize? Have you forgotten how you could no longer squeeze into that snakeskin tube top I made for you?”

Bai Qingqing’s face exploded with redness as she slapped his hands away. “Hooligan snake! Don’t think that you can mask your hooligan behavior with a serious countenance.”

Curtis helplessly said, “Alright, you’re not fat. Open your arms and let me take measurements.”

Parker also came forward and chimed in, “You’ve indeed grown fatter. Just admit it, Qingqing. I won’t despise you for it.”

“Ah!” Bai Qingqing let out a tragic cry. She spread her arms and shut up.

This was a gap between different species that could not be resolved.
