Chapter 657: Alligator Meat Tastes Good
Bai Qingqing felt completely at ease. “It’s nothing.”
Winston said, “Then, I’ll be going out.”
Bai Qingqing could guess that he was going out to build the house. She immediately said, “Is it something urgent? If it isn’t, then just stay at home. We’ll make a larger animal skin so that it’ll be sufficient for us to sleep in.”
Both Parker and Winston looked toward the bedding at the same time.
Turned out that she had noticed that only half of Winston’s body was sleeping on the animal skin.
Bai Qingqing got up and walked up to the wooden chest, tossing out animal skins. She grinned and said, “Anyway, the tree hole is so big. We can just sew a large piece of animal skin and lay it out on the ground. We’ll be able to sleep however we want then.”
The tree hole was only over ten square meters, so Bai Qingqing’s idea wasn’t extravagant. However, even if she wished for the castle they had stayed in the past to be completely laid with animal skin, the three males wouldn’t refuse her either. As long as it could make her more comfortable.
Curtis personally sewed things together, and it didn’t take long for an animal skin blanket to be completed. There was both black and white fur, and it looked quite good on the ground.
“Ahh! It’s really comfortable!” Bai Qingqing lay in the middle of the tree hole, stretching out her hands and legs. If it wasn’t for her big stomach, she’d be rolling on the ground.
She turned her head and saw Parker, then said, “You will have to clean your paws before coming up in the future. It won’t be easy to wash such a big piece of animal skin if it gets dirty.”
Parker often slept in his nest with his legs covered in mud. After a night of sleep, his legs would miraculously become clean—the mud would have fallen into the gra.s.s pile. Due to this, Bai Qingqing would often turn the gra.s.s pile out to clean the soil.
Having grown up in modern society, she wasn’t able to accept this and thus had often nagged him about this.
Parker said unhappily, “It’ll be gone after it dries, anyway.”
Bai Qingqing glared at him before he said unwillingly, “Alright. When I come back in the future, I’ll change into my human form and wash my legs.”
“That’s better.” Bai Qingqing nodded, feeling satisfied. She then said to the leopard cubs, “You guys will also have to wait for your legs to dry before entering. Understand?”
“Howl howl—” The leopard cubs replied.
Winston quietly looked at his legs and dug out a piece of soil hidden between his toes. He quietly threw it downstairs.
After the animal skin was sewn up, Winston still went out. He sent a group of beastmen to search for Rosa’s companions nearby and also to keep watch on the floating beasts’ traces.
At lunchtime, Parker roasted floating beast meat and added a few pieces into Bai Qingqing’s soup.
The floating beast had a hard exterior, but the flesh inside was tender and delicious. They tasted like braised pig head.
Bai Qingqing tasted the difference from the first bite and asked in surprise, “What meat is this? It’s delicious.”
Hearing that, Parker became excited and said, “This is a floating beast. I only noticed it today. It’s good that you like it. I’ll catch them for you every day in the future.”
“Pffft!” Bai Qingqing spat out the noodles in her mouth and coughed. Then, a strand of noodles came out from her nose as well, hanging down next to her mouth, looking ridiculous.
Alligator? Could that thing be eaten?
Parker was surprised by Bai Qingqing’s skill. He reached out and drew out the noodle.
Bai Qingqing’s nose felt uncomfortable from the salted water and tears gushed down. She kept on wiping away her snot while flipping through the alligator meat.
“It’s good!” Bai Qingqing nodded in certainty. At the same time, she started to wonder if the floating beasts were the same as the alligators she knew. If they were, then it’d be hard for her to eat this.
After she had finished eating, Parker took care of the dishes before bringing the cubs down for food.
Quite a number of beastmen had caught floating beasts to try them today. No one had expected that this try eventually caused them to continue eating floating beasts for the entire raining season.
