Chapter 558: The First Beastman to Join the Village
Two days later, the rain stopped, and Curtis came back as well. His expression was very dark because he hadn’t found p.r.i.c.kly fruits.
Bai Qingqing was a little disappointed as well, but she still consoled him. “It’s fine. It also works using weed to clean teeth with.”
Curtis didn’t give up. “I’ll have to make a trip back to the City of Beastmen and bring all your things over. That th.o.r.n.y fruit tree might still be there.”
“It’s so far.” Bai Qingqing immediately frowned.
Curtis knew that her heart was aching for him, and his countenance turned a little better. “If I go alone, I’ll be able to arrive in ten days without too much of a rush. On the trip back, with the things with me, 15 days should be enough.”
“Then, when will you be going?” Bai Qingqing asked.
Curtis tidied her hair and then looked at her gently. “The heavy rainy season. I wish to go after I’ve shed my skin.”
If he were to go now, it’d be bad if he were to start shedding skin midway. He wished to let Snow guard over him.
Moreover, Snow would definitely be in heat by then. But with them being unable to mate, it was better for him to leave.
A blue shadow retreated behind a large tree nearby.
Bluepool smiled. So Bai Qingqing was fretting over the cleaning of her teeth. Hmph, what would be better than the small silver fishes he reared? He had been thinking about cleaning his body, and it was also the rainy season now. He could make a trip back to the sea.
If he could make Bai Qingqing happy, the chances of him becoming her mate would be a little higher.
As Bluepool thought this, he immediately turned and walked toward the river.
Curtis threw a glance in Bluepool’s direction and didn’t pay him much heed.
A peac.o.c.k cry that they hadn’t heard in quite a while rang out in the sky above them. Bai Qingqing immediately looked up.
A big brightly colored bird glided past in the sky, spreading out his long tail feathers. Many blue eye-shaped prints amidst the green feathers made it look like an extravagant piece of clothing was trailing behind him.
“Alva?” Even though Bai Qingqing had gotten used to seeing peac.o.c.ks, she was still astonished by the beautiful sight after not having seen one for so long.
“Gah gah!” The peac.o.c.k’s cry became agitated, and he immediately dashed down.
Curtis also looked up. The peac.o.c.k anxiously flapped his wings and forcibly stopped in midair.
The sound of the flapping from its flashy wings was very loud. It blew up a strong gust of wind, sending Bai Qingqing’s hair flying around messily.
The peac.o.c.k rested on a branch above her and turned into his human form. It was really Alva.
“Bai Qingqing, I finally see you again.” Alva’s eyesight was very good, and he quickly noticed the tiger tattoo on her right arm. His brows drooped down. “The tiger king is really your mate.”
He increasingly felt that he wasn’t compatible with Bai Qingqing. He felt very sad.
“Why have you come?” Bai Qingqing asked. “You didn’t go back?”
“I didn’t. I’ve been staying outside the village all this while. You don’t come out at all.” Alva looked at her with an aggrieved expression. “If it wasn’t for the tiger king, I wouldn’t have been able to see you now.”
At the mention of him, Winston came back with a basin of wild vegetables.
Quite a number of beastmen were alarmed by the peac.o.c.k’s cry and came out from the tree holes. When they saw that Winston was around, they didn’t feel scared anymore.
Molly saw the big beautiful bird in the sky when it was a long distance away. She had been astonished then but didn’t expect that the bird turned out to be a beastman as well. She immediately came running over from her home.
Bai Qingqing was about to greet her when a “bang” rang out. Molly, who had her head inclined up to look at the beautiful man, got it bad. She tripped over a root protruding from the ground and fell. She even slid for quite a distance.
From the sound and impact, it was clearly immensely painful.
Bai Qingqing was speechless.
Alva was also shocked by this huge commotion. He raised his head and looked over.
