Chapter 669: Suspecting Rosa
The floating beasts kept swarming over like zombies surrounding a city. Several floating beast “mountains” piled up outside the city walls.
If it weren’t for the existence of this wall, even with Curtis around, their village wouldn’t have been able to withstand their attacks.
They were simply outnumbered.
At night, when Bai Qingqing heard of this matter, she said while curled up in her blanket, “This is so spooky! Just how great is the charm of us females, for the floating beasts to be so bent on coming in even if it means they have to drill holes.”
“Very spooky, indeed,” Winston responded. In order for her not to catch a cold, he carefully wiped off the rainwater on his body before sitting on the bed.
As she caressed her tummy, she wondered why weren’t the floating beasts attacking her when she too was pregnant with a baby and had a high level of estrogen?
Even if she as one person couldn’t compare with tens of females, they shouldn’t be leaving her completely alone, right? Could it be because she was a human and didn’t have as strong a scent as beastmen?
“Winston, why don’t you let the females who aren’t in heat move back?”
“Okay.” Winston said, “It’s just that we will now have to allocate some males to protect them.”
“At least this group of females will be safer,” Bai Qingqing said. She intertwined her fingers resting on her tummy and said hesitatingly, “I feel that… this matter has something to do with Rosa. Let me make it clear first: I’m not really picking on her, but her arrival is too great of a coincidence. Right after a mysterious person appears outside our village, we get attacked by the floating beasts.”
Winston immediately expressed his stand. “I have the same suspicion.”
Bai Qingqing relaxed.
“I feel that females in heat don’t have that great of an attraction to floating beasts. I mean, just look at how peaceful it is around here.” she continued, “If we wish to confirm this hypothesis, we can use the elimination technique and isolate the females one by one.”
Winston said in a defeated tone, “Our village isn’t powerful enough, there aren’t enough males.”
“Then…” Bai Qingqing was about to suggest leaving Rosa outside to observe the results, but before she could finish her sentence, Winston cut her off.
“I will take care of it as soon as possible.” Winston reached out and caressed Bai Qingqing’s brows that had subconsciously creased. He said, “Don’t worry about this.”
Winston’s composed and confident manner made her reveal a faint smile and say, “Alright. I’ll leave you to it, then.”
With the tree hole blocked by a pile of gra.s.s, the sounds of wind and rain outside subsided by quite a bit. Parker kept away the source of light and tossed it into the wooden case, and the tree hole instantly plunged into pitch darkness.
Bai Qingqing laid down properly with the leopard and tiger on each side. Both were warm and toasty, but comparatively, Winston with his larger body seemed quite a bit warmer.
Ah, how nice would it be if I can hold him to warm up?
Parker laid down on his side with his front facing Bai Qingqing and rested his paws upon her body. Even though she couldn’t understand the language of leopards, she knew what he was trying to say—Quickly come into my embrace.
Alright, in that case, I shan’t disturb Winston.
Bai Qingqing let out a soft sigh and turned towards the leopard, then squirmed into his warm and soft embrace.
The moment she did so, Bai Qingqing felt so comfortable she let out a sigh.
Ooh! Although he’s not as big as the tiger, he feels so warm and toasty!
Parker purred in satisfaction as well, gripping his paws inwards, hugging the female in his arms like a human being.
Bai Qingqing, who gave up on her original intent due to embarra.s.sment, wouldn’t have imagined that while she was hesitating, Winston was also waiting in nervous antic.i.p.ation.
In the darkness, the white tiger let out an exhale, and his body immediately relaxed.
She didn’t hug me again tonight.
But after she falls asleep, she will still roll over, right?
