Chapter 586: Sleepless Night (3)
The males in the village instantly opened their eyes. Before their brains even sobered up, they jumped out of the tree hole.
Parker halted in his actions and immediately got up from her body.
“What’s the matter?” Bai Qingqing asked between heavy pants, lying limply on the gra.s.s nest as though she hadn’t a single bone in her body. It was apparent from her voice that her l.u.s.t had yet to be fully satisfied.
Parker didn’t pounce at her like he usually did. Holding back his primitive urges, he looked out the tree hole and said, “Our village is under attack.”
Bai Qingqing sobered up right away. She crawled up and said, “What beastmen? How many? Hurry up and go over to help them.”
Parker walked back and helped her put on a snakeskin dress. “Stay by Curtis’s side and don’t leave the tree hole no matter what happens. I’ll get the cubs.”
“I know.” Bai Qingqing nodded. “Be careful and don’t get injured.”
Parker wasn’t able to guarantee her that, so he simply planted a kiss on her head before transforming into a leopard and leaping out.
Before das.h.i.+ng into the battlefield, Parker called for the cubs to come down.
The alert leopard cubs were already crawling down the tree as he called out to them. Very quickly, they squirmed into the second story of the tree hole and ran towards their mommy, trampling over the soundly asleep giant snake as they did so.
Seeing her three cubs, Bai Qingqing stroked their heads and coaxed gently. “Babies, don’t be afraid. Mommy’s here.”
The cubs didn’t seem happy to hear this, for they simply twisted their heads away and crouched by their mommy’s side.
They felt that they were at least stronger than their mommy and that they had to protect her.
Bai Qingqing smiled.
The giant snake s.h.i.+fted, and the three leopard cubs sitting prim and proper like a stone statue fell off.
Curtis was usually dead to the world when he slept.
Bai Qingqing said apologetically, “Did they wake you?”
Ssss~ Curtis flicked out his tongue.
Bai Qingqing said, “Our village is under attack.”
Ssss~ Curtis s.h.i.+fted the one human and three leopards into the middle of his coils, before closing his eyes and going back to sleep.
Alright, seems like the soundly asleep Curtis couldn’t be counted on.
Roars and growls rang through the entire village, and from time to time one could hear agonizing cries. However, it was unclear whether it came from a friend or a foe.
Bai Qingqing was genuinely worried. Having depleted their energies during tonight’s duels, the young beastmen were bound to be at a disadvantage if they went into battle at a time like this.
She crawled out from Curtis’s body and watched from the entrance of the tree hole.
Brutal killing was taking place down there. The number of intruders was half of the number of tiger males in the village, but they were focused on climbing into the tree holes where females resided. Clearly, their target was the females.
The tiger tribe would have been able to fend off these intruders originally, as each female had the protection of several male beastmen. But the twenty-plus newly arrived females didn’t have as many protectors, and only one or two were fending off the attacks underneath their trees.
Thankfully, Bai Qingqing and Parker did that thing in the middle of the night, causing Winston to realize something was amiss when he went out. Any longer and those beastmen would have successfully launched a sneak attack, putting them in a much worse situation.
Males had no sense of alertness when they were mating. Case in point, even Curtis once got injured while engaged in the deed. Much less ordinary beastmen.
Bai Qingqing’s heart clenched as she watched a beastman have a chunk bitten off his leg. She looked around to see where Parker was. On the other hand, she easily caught sight of Winston, for his body of white fur was particularly eye-catching. Despite having several beastmen encircling him, he solidly had the upper hand.
As Bai Qingqing was peering into the distance, she didn’t pay attention to what was going on underneath her own home. Only when she heard the familiar roar of a leopard did she finally saw Parker under their tree.
Parker let out a roar as he pounced towards the wolf beastman opposite him, and the duo got entangled in a fight. Next to them, seeing that the leopard beastman was kept busy by his companion, a wolf beastman stealthily went behind them and entered the first story of the tree hole.
The sound of flesh slamming against the ground instantly rang from inside.
