Chapter 540: Bluepool Wants to Rise Up (1)
Of course, Bai Qingqing wouldn’t bear to let Winston do all the work by himself. She immediately went to look for Curtis and Parker, but both of them were displeased with Winston and neither of them made a move.
Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to pester Curtis, so she grabbed Parker’s arm and focused on tackling him. “Please help. There’s really a lot.”
The more she pleaded, the more Parker was displeased. He tugged off his animal skin skirt and said, “I’ll go hunt. The children are hungry.”
After saying that, he turned into his beast form and jumped out of the tree hole.
“Hey!” Bai Qingqing ran over to the entrance and looked down. Not long later, she saw the leopard disappearing from view. She let out a sigh and looked toward Curtis, hesitating for a moment before saying, “Send me down.”
Curtis raised his tail sluggishly, curling Bai Qingqing up and bringing her to the ground.
Winston, who was busy at work, took a look at her and said, “There’s really no need to help. I’ll be able to get it done in a few days.”
“No, how can I let you do the work by yourself.” Bai Qingqing moved a stone basin that weighed over five kilograms with much difficulty, then started to fill it up with stone fruits.
“I can wash the stone fruits.”
After filling up the stone basin, she couldn’t move it at all.
Bai Qingqing frowned, then took the stone fruits out, mumbling to herself, “I’ll fill it up with less.”
Winston lowered his head, and his lips curled up into a faint smile, feeling as if his heart was being filled up with something.
In the end, Bai Qingqing successfully filled up the stone basin with some fruits and brought it to the waterhole. It had been a few days since Bluepool saw her, and he immediately came up to the surface.
“What happened to your shoulder?” Bluepool’s expression turned dark when he saw the pink scar on her shoulder.
Bai Qingqing poured the stone fruits to the ground, putting them into the basin one by one after was.h.i.+ng them. She said half-heartedly, “It’s nothing.”
Bluepool swam half a round around Bai Qingqing, noticing the white tiger on her arm. His solemn countenance turned into astonishment. You became mates with Winston?
“En.” Bai Qingqing nodded.
Bluepool stopped moving, feeling a myriad of emotions.
He first felt jealous of how Winston had gotten her. Then, he felt elated. Since even Winston could succeed, then there was a chance for him as well, right?
“Can Curtis accept him?” Bluepool asked.
Bai Qingqing sighed and then threw a glance back, looking troubled. “He can, but he’s not allowing him into the tree hole anymore. Things will get better in the future.”
Bluepool felt at ease, then asked hesitantly, “Then, what about me?”
“If I were to mate with you, Curtis will be able to accept it as well, right?” He looked at Bai Qingqing, wearing a careful expression.
She glared and smashed a potato fruit at the merman’s chest. With a “thud,” it fell into the water and was caught by a pale white hand.
“You… Back then, we only agreed that I would bring you here to look for a female,” Bai Qingqing said anxiously.
“What if you’re the only one I accept?” Bluepool’s gaze was firm.
Bai Qingqing said, “He won’t accept you.”
Bluepool’s expression turned anxious. He swam to the sh.o.r.e, grabbed her shoulder, and asked, “Why?”
Bai Qingqing turned a little. The icy- old touch on her shoulder caused half of her body to break out in gooseb.u.mps.
“The reason that Curtis accepted Winston is that he can a.s.sist in the hunt. He said that you can’t and isn’t of any help. So, he won’t accept you.”
The grip on her shoulder suddenly loosened, and Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief as she looked at him.
Bluepool was stunned. After feeling disappointed for a short moment, strong determination once again returned to his eyes. “I can hunt on land. I’ll start practicing right away.”
“Hey, don’t act recklessly.”
Before Bai Qingqing finished speaking, Bluepool had dived into the water.
