Chapter 703: Received News of the Little Snake
Feeling sheepish, Parker’s tone softened by quite a bit.
“I can’t bring you back directly. Hide in the vicinity first. After the rain stops, I’ll bring Qingqing over for you to secretly meet with her.”
The little snake nodded excitedly.
Parker glanced at the surrounding bushes that had been crushed by the floating beasts and reminded, “Be careful, there are many floating beasts around here.”
The little snake cast a sideways glance at the bushes Parker was referring to, then turned his vision back to him, as though saying “I feel that you’re more dangerous.”
Parker shut up in embarra.s.sment.
This little fellow looks exactly like Curtis, really makes me feel like beating him up.
Thankfully, Curtis wasn’t close to his children, much less would he help the little snake. Before the little snake came of age, he wouldn’t be able to lodge a complaint with Qingqing. Moreover, it didn’t look like the skies were going to clear up in a day or two, so he wouldn’t have to show Qingqing her child in this state. Hopefully, by the time the skies cleared up, the little snake would have recovered.
“I’ll get going. When the skies clear up, I’ll come here to look for you,” said Parker.
The little snake immediately replied with a hiss.
Parker transformed into a leopard and found some wild fruits as he roamed around.
By the time he got back to the village, it was around mealtime, so he did the cooking before entering the tree hole.
As leopard beastmen had light bodies, Parker didn’t make a single sound when he came up with the food.
Bai Qingqing, holding a tiny piece of clothing and pondering over how to make it prettier, detected the fragrance of food before she even heard anyone enter.
Raising her head, she saw that it was indeed him. She quickly set down the clothing and asked enthusiastically, “How did it go? Did you find the little snakes?”
Due to her excitement, Bai Qingqing’s volume was a little high. Right after she spoke, she instantly shut up and cast a glance over at Curtis.
She was relieved to see that he didn’t show any reaction.
Parker said gleefully, “Of course.”
With a broad beam on her face, Bai Qingqing walked to his side and asked softly, “How is he? With so many floating beasts outside, did he get injured?”
Recalling that lump of meat on the little snake’s waist, Parker’s gaze started losing focus. He masked his uneasiness with a cough.
“Cough, he’s living in a tree hole. It looks pretty safe.”
Bai Qingqing then asked, “Did you talk to him? Did you tell him I miss him very much? When can we meet?”
With that, she carefully looked towards Curtis. Though she was meeting her son, it felt like she was sneaking out to see her lover instead. How tiring.
Parker placed the food on the table and pressed her shoulders down to make her sit down on the chair. He said, “Eat something.”
The leopard cubs detected the aroma and came running over. They stood up on their hind limbs like pet dogs, mouths watering as they stared at the food on the table.
Bai Qingqing smiled and hurriedly picked up a slice of meat to feed them.
In order to make Parker answer her question faster, she started eating as well. As she ate, she urged, “Quickly tell me.”
“I told him that after the rain stops, I’ll bring you out for a breather and to meet him.”
Bai Qingqing bit her chopsticks, and her lips curled involuntarily. “I’m so looking forward to it.”
Parker stroked her head and said, “Eat up.”
Bai Qingqing looked up at him, her eyes narrowed in a smile. She s.h.i.+fted her chopsticks away and said, “Err… it’s been three days. After I finish eating, let’s mate.”
Parker’s breathing halted. Though it had been two years since they became mates, he still froze on the spot like a wooden rod.
“I’ll drink the medicine a little later, before dinner,” Bai Qingqing said as she ate. Having not gotten a reply from him, she raised her head. She couldn’t help laughing at his reaction.
