Chapter 57: Unt.i.tled

After filling up Bai Qingqing’s stomach, Cortis brought her and went on the way.

On the journey, Bai Qingqing would always feign sickness during critical moments. Other than being taken advantage of every now and then, everything else was calm and peaceful.

The team of leopards searched for seven days without any results and thus returned. Only Moore, who had only come to offer a.s.sistance, stayed in the forest and continued to search for the snake beastman’s traces.

As Parker was seriously injured, he was ordered by his mother to stay at home to recuperate. He waited by the city gate every day. When he saw the group, he immediately dashed up.

“How is it? Did you find my female?”

One of the leopards came up, holding a female skirt made from animal skin with his mouth. Parker immediately s.n.a.t.c.hed it over, and his eyes immediately turned blood red. “This is Qingqing’s. Where is she?”

“Howl~~” The leopard backed off for two steps and spoke in leopard beastman’s language, “We found this in a cave in the mountains. We couldn’t win against that snake beastman in a fight, nor were we able to track him down. It’s better to wait for the leopard king to return before we go and save your female.”

Parker clenched the skirt tightly in his hand. With a “bang”, the skirt around his waist was torn as he took on his animal form. “Tell my mother that I went to look for Qingqing! Howl!”

After saying that, he ran out.

In the blink of an eye, it had been over 20 days since Bai Qingqing had been captured. She calculated things and estimated that her period was going to come soon!

The moment her period came, Cortis wanted to mate with her. Bai Qingqing was so anxious that ulcers appeared in her mouth.

Cortis carried Bai Qingqing and moved along the mountains. Seeing that the female was very worried, he said, “We’ll arrive at the seaside after ten or more days of swimming. There are waters that you cannot see the ends of. It’s very beautiful. You’ll definitely like it.”

“Oh,” Bai Qingqing answered listlessly.

Cortis caught a few field rats the size of pomelos on the way, stopped by a river, and prepared food for her.

Over these days, Cortis’s culinary skills had improved, and Bai Qingqing had handed the job of cooking over to him. She wasn’t feeling up to it today and so didn’t do it.

The weather had turned a little cooler. Bai Qingqing rubbed her arms and walked to the river, using her foot to test out the temperature.

“Ssss, it’s so cold.” Although Bai Qingqing said this, she made up her mind and entered the water, until she was completely soaked in the water. She was so cold that she curled up into a ball.

When one was on their period, they mustn’t be subjected to the cold. Otherwise, their period would become irregular and the amount of their flow might be reduced or even stop for a few months.

Therefore, Bai Qingqing hoped to make use of this point to get through things.

Cortis liked water and had dreamed of having a romantic time with his mate in the water. Seeing that Bai Qingqing had entered the water, he quickly roasted the field rats and bamboo rice, then followed her into the water.

Bai Qingqing turned and saw that there was only a fire by the sh.o.r.e. She quickly looked around. “Where is he?”

“Splash—” A splas.h.i.+ng sound rang out and Bai Qingqing let out a scream. She was then lifted up from the water.

Cortis used his tail to wrap around Bai Qingqing’s waist. He leaned against the sh.o.r.e and let out a few soft laughs.

Bai Qingqing glared at Cortis angrily. “You gave me a fright!”

Cortis drew back his tail and embraced her with both arms, intimately rubbing against her face.

Bai Qingqing pushed him away and swam deeper into the water. She felt the water flow coming from behind her and knew that Cortis was following her.

“Don’t follow me. Go and keep watch over the fire.” Bai Qingqing turned as she said this. She only saw a snakehead soaking in the water. There was only a pair of scarlet eyes on the surface of the water, looking at her.

“Hiss hiss~” Cortis caught up to Bai Qingqing, used his wet and smooth head to rub against her arm, then swan past her. He then turned to face her, his eyes filled with delight.
