Chapter 562: Welcome Party
“What about the leopard tribe? How’s the leopard king and the rest doing?” Bai Qingqing asked as she glanced at Parker’s countenance.
Although Parker didn’t look like he much cared, he had his ears p.r.i.c.ked up
Winston said, “The leopard king and his mate are well. As for the other males of the leopard king, I have no idea.”
Parker and Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief.
“When the females were being distributed, the leopard king kept the leopard females with him. I’m guessing they’ve set up a leopard village by now.”
Parker chuckled. “Not bad.”
Bai Qingqing nodded in agreement.
As time pa.s.sed amid the lively atmosphere, night quietly descended.
Under the moonlight, piles of bonfires lit up the ground. Very quickly, the aroma of food wafted through the air.
Having gone wild playing for an entire day, the leopard cubs had returned. When they grew to a certain size, the changes in their sizes weren’t that obvious anymore. Though, they appeared stronger and more muscular as the days pa.s.sed. Having mastered the techniques of hunting, they would stay outside for the entire day and usually wouldn’t return home until it was time to eat.
Parker kicked away Third, who was about to rub against Bai Qingqing. “Little rascal, go away.”
“Roar~” Mommy is wearing the animal skin hunted by me!
Third roared in excitement.
Somehow, Bai Qingqing understood what he was saying. She chuckled twice and bent over to caress his head. “Thank you, Third. Mommy likes it very much.”
“Roar!” Third agitatedly opened his mouth to bite his mother’s hand to grind his teeth. Aching from the bite, Bai Qingqing retracted her hand and smelled it. It smelled awful.
She hurriedly pulled Parker to the waterhole and washed her hands, then went to sit down beside a nearby bonfire.
Curtis, who had seen the new members, had his mind put to ease and didn’t come this time.
Bailey came to the bonfires. After surveying the surroundings, she went to sit down beside a bonfire next to Bai Qingqing’s.
“Bai Qingqing, are these your cubs?” Sadness and envy appeared in Bailey’s eyes as she gazed at the strong and muscular leopard cubs.
“Mm, where are your wolf pups?” asked Bai Qingqing.
Bailey grabbed the large hand of the bear beastman beside her and said with her head lowered, “They’re dead. If it wasn’t for Tony, I wouldn’t have survived as well.”
“Yeah, that earthquake was too scary. Thankfully, you guys had left by then.” As a male who had once pursued Bai Qingqing, Tony didn’t partic.i.p.ate in the mission to hunt her down. But even then, he felt ashamed about what the City of Beastmen had done back then.
Bai Qingqing scolded herself inwardly and said, “Everything’s fine now. Let’s eat meat.”
“Mm.” Bailey nodded.
Parker asked, “Qingqing, which part would you like to eat? I’ll help you add condiments.”
She was given a sheep, and it had just started roasting, so condiments could still be added at this point.
Bai Qingqing waved a hand. “No, I should eat like the rest on such an occasion.”
Thus, Parker simply roasted it on the firewood.
Before the meat was cooked, Ford pulled Becky and came to a neighboring bonfire as he gave her advice.
Bai Qingqing was delighted to see Becky. “Becky? You’re here as well?”
“Bai Qingqing.” Becky looked up at her and greeted her softly.
Becky and Ford finally successfully copulated on the Flos Eriocauli field. After that, Becky seemed like a different person—when she stood quietly outside, she appeared just like everyone else; it was only when there were more people around that she couldn’t help getting nervous.
Bai Qingqing’s smile widened. “Hurry up and sit.”
The beastmen in the village were more or less here. Acting on Winston’s instructions, the tribal head arranged for the single males to combat on an empty plot of land, and the victor would have priority in getting a spouse.
In any case, Bailey had to choose one and mate with him tonight.
With the atmosphere instantly heated up, Bailey stopped talking to Bai Qingqing and riveted her gaze upon the battleground.
