Chapter 626: Going on a Sightseeing Tour
Parker only came back roughly half an hour later. He brought with him a blade of gra.s.s, then crouched on the ground without a word and pounded it using the stone mortar.
Bai Qingqing cast quite a few glances at him.
After crus.h.i.+ng the medicinal herb, Parker went to her with his head lowered.
“Does it still hurt?”
“Mm?” Was this medicine really for her?
After freezing for two seconds, Bai Qingqing recalled the pain in her chest. Smiling, she said, “It’s not serious enough to warrant medicine. I’m fine.”
Parker pulled down her clothes, and his breathing halted.
Was it so exaggerated? Bai Qingqing also lowered her head and took a look, and to her surprise, she saw that it was much more swollen now. No wonder she kept feeling pain.
“I scratched you with my fingernails,” Parker said ashamedly as he applied the medicine on her and laid a hand over it.
“Let me do it myself.” Bai Qingqing put on her clothes and removed his hand from her chest.
The leopard cubs woke up at the same time and flipped onto their backs, stretching lazily with all fours up in the air.
If only one cub did this, it would just be normal cuteness. But when three cubs did it at the same time, it was an incredibly adorable sight.
Bai Qingqing sputtered with laughter. “Let’s bring the kids out to play. Oh, right. Winston found a suitable place and is building a house right now. I wonder how it’s going. Let’s go over and take a look. There’s a large plot of empty land over there, suitable for the cubs to practice their sprinting.”
It was rare for Bai Qingqing to be in such a good mood. Not wanting to dampen her spirits, Parker and Curtis set off immediately.
Right now it was the hottest time of the year. Even with the shading from the trees, it didn’t block out the invasion of the scorching temperatures.
They walked into the empty plot of land Winston chose to build a house upon, where the blazing sun shone directly upon, and the gra.s.s appeared dull and lifeless.
But because there weren’t any trees to block out the wind, they could feel a breeze, which felt particularly comfortable as it blew upon their bodies.
Now that they had an un.o.bstructed view, the cubs excitedly broke into a sprint on the gra.s.sy plains.
Bai Qingqing gazed at the plants in the surroundings and shouted worriedly, “Be careful!”
Parker raised his head and let out an angry roar, making the plants in the vicinity shake noisily, and countless animals to flee frantically.
“You don’t have to worry now,” said Parker.
With their daddy backing them up, the cubs dashed into the trembling bushes.
Bai Qingqing said, “They really make me worry. Let’s quickly go in.”
Once they were exposed underneath the sun, Bai Qingqing felt an aching sensation from her skin. The sun seemed even more vicious here than in the City of Beastmen.
Curtis covered her body with his hair and dashed to the pile of rocks at the speed of lightning.
The foundation had been set, and it was laid with even rocks, occupying an area of about 500 square meters. The walls of the first story had also been built. Hiding under the chilling stone wall and taking in the breeze, it felt really relaxing.
Just then, the cubs came back with a small-sized prey one after the other.
Third placed the short-winged bird he caught at Bai Qingqing’s feet. The short-winged bird lurched forward half a meter before Third held it between his jaws and brought it back to her.
Heart melting, Bai Qingqing stroked his head and said, “Third, is this food for Mommy?”
Jealous, Eldest and Second also went over to their mommy and wanted to rub against her legs.
Second had caught a short-winged bird as well. But the prey Eldest brought back was a large spiky ball resembling a porcupine.
And now, Eldest’s mouth had been p.r.i.c.ked by the spikes from holding the prey between his jaws.
Without waiting for Eldest to bring the prey over to rub against Bai Qingqing, Parker kicked the cub aside.
“Go over to the side and eat by yourselves.”
Bai Qingqing cast a grateful look at him and said, “Mommy’s not hungry. You three can eat the prey yourselves.”
The three cubs aggrievedly crouched in a row in front of her and started to enjoy their prey.
