Chapter 538: Going Home
Parker took Bai Qingqing from Winston’s arms and carried her into the tree hole.
Having long detected the odor of lovemaking, Parker didn’t face Winston with a pleasant countenance. Though, he ultimately said nothing.
But when he lifted the tree leaf and saw the bite wounds on her shoulders, rage exploded in his chest instantly.
“Ooh! I’ll bite you to death!” With that, he transformed into a leopard.
“Parker!” Bai Qingqing s.h.i.+elded her chest with the tree leaf with one hand and held him back with the other.
“Don’t fight. There’s a lot of filthy stuff on my body. Will you help boil me some hot water? Cold water will do as well.”
Parker glared ferociously at Winston.
“I’ll go boil water,” Winston offered, then jumped down the tree right away.
Holding back the urge to give chase, Parker hurriedly tore off the tree leaf from Bai Qingqing’s body, completely exposing the purplish-green bruises and blood streaks all over her snow-white skin.
The rage in Parker instantly evaporated. Staring intently at her body, he restrained his rapid breathing, a pained look evident in his eyes.
Bai Qingqing squirmed and gazed at him sheepishly.
“How did this happen?” Parker cautiously touched a b.l.o.o.d.y hole on Bai Qingqing’s smooth and fair shoulder. He couldn’t believe Winston would treat her in such a brutal manner. Yet, when he sniffed the scent on her body, all he could smell was Winston’s scent.
That moment he managed to get a clear look at Bai Qingqing’s body, he had thought that she was raped by a member of the scorpion tribe.
“Sss~” Bai Qingqing drew in a gasp. She glanced at Parker’s expression and regurgitated the script she had mentally prepared in advance.
“We mated in the Flos Eriocauli field, and things got a little crazy. It was only after it ended that I felt the pain.”
“The aphrodisiac effects of Flos Eriocauli when it started blooming are the strongest.” Seems like Parker bought the story. He glared at her with a mixture of anger and heartache. “You actually dare to mate with a four-striped beastman like Winston there.”
Bai Qingqing’s brows unfurrowed. From the sounds of it, Parker wasn’t opposed to the addition of Winston into the family.
Winston went to the waterhole with a stone basin to fetch water.
From the water surface bubbled up half a snakehead. Curtis flicked out his tongue, his red eyes rolling to Winston’s reproductive organ which carried his spouse’s scent.
Winston took one glance at him, then filled the basin with water and turned around to leave.
A loud splash sounded from behind. Winston rolled his eyes to the side, then continued walking on as though nothing had happened. The next moment, his body was abruptly sent flying with a sweep. Even the basin of water was splattered all over the floor.
The black and red snake’s body crawled out from the waterhole. After taking his frustration out on the male who mated with his lover, he slithered home.
Winston got to his feet, filled the basin with water once more, then went back with his head lowered.
Food was being roasted under the tree, and the bottom part had become a little charred, with black smoke rising from it. Three half-grown leopard cubs went in circles around the food. Upon hearing the footstep sounds, they raised their little heads in unison and looked at Winston.
Even at their tender age, they acutely sensed that this tiger’s ident.i.ty had undergone some changes.
Winston tore off a large slice of meat and tossed it to them, then flipped the food over and doused some water over it.
“Who bled?” Curtis detected a b.l.o.o.d.y stench the instant he entered the tree hole and then reached out to lift the animal skin off Bai Qingqing’s body.
Bai Qingqing hurriedly held it down, for she didn’t dare to let him see it.
“Hmph, Winston bit Qingqing.” Anger surged in Parker’s chest at the mention of it. Finally, he couldn’t hold himself back anymore. Transforming into a leopard, he leaped out of the tree hole.
With a dark countenance, Curtis firmly lifted the animal skin from her body.
The atmosphere in the tree hole plunged to freezing point all of a sudden.
The sounds of fighting could be heard from below. Without even having to look, Bai Qingqing knew that Winston didn’t retaliate. Worried that Curtis would join in the brawl, she immediately leaned against Curtis’s chest in a wheedling manner.
Curtis inhaled deeply and held her in his arms.
