Chapter 71: Delicious Fruits
“Howl~” Parker yawned, then laid on Bai Qingqing’s legs and closed his eyes.
Parker immediately fell asleep. It was clear that he was exhausted. He constantly purred as he slept, as if he was a comforted kitten.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but scratch Parker’s chin. Bored from being all on her own, she pulled out her legs from underneath the leopard’s abdomen. She then laid down on the ground next to Parker and closed her eyes to rest.
In his sleep, Parker pulled Bai Qingqing into his embrace, hugging her with all four of his limbs.
When Moore returned, he saw the beautiful female sleeping quietly in her admirer’s arms. This peacefulness seemed even more heavenly when compared to the male’s unpleasant snoring.
Moore suddenly felt jealous. This male leopard, Parker, didn’t do a single thing. Yet, he got the best chance to pursue the female.
He remembered overhearing that Parker saved Bai Qingqing by chance when he was out hunting in the jungle. This guy was so lucky that others wanted to rip him into pieces.
He also had a hand in saving the female. This time, it was from the hands of a snake beastman, where her chances of survival were the lowest. However, the methods he used were indeed harsh. He wasn’t thick-skinned enough to use this to request to stay by the female’s side.
Even if word got out, everyone would only criticize him, and females would have a worse impression of him. He was already surprised at Bai Qingqing’s att.i.tude towards him.
Humans had an intriguing ability to sense when others were looking at them. After Moore stared at her for a long time, Bai Qingqing suddenly woke up from a light sleep.
Bai Qingqing was surprised to see Moore the moment she opened her eyes. She purposefully lowered her voice and asked, “You’re already back?”
“Coo~” Moore opened his black beak and cooed. He then looked down and nudged a pile of wild fruits placed on a large leaf.
“Shh~” Bai Qingqing quickly gestured towards Moore to be quiet, then carefully turned around to look at Parker and let out a sigh of relief after seeing that he was still asleep.
“He’s exhausted. We shouldn’t disturb him.” Bai Qingqing quietly got up from Parker’s arms.
Then, Parker’s snoring stopped. He waved his limbs in the air as he tried to find something to hold on to. When he was only met with air, he wrapped his limbs around his body and continued snoring.
Moore transformed into a human and then said softly, “Eat some wild fruits first. I’ll roast some meat for you.”
“Thank you.” Bai Qingqing began to nibble on the fruits.
Although the wild apples looked small and insignificant, they were surprisingly sweet and crunchy and tasted much better than the ridiculously expensive apples she would find at the grocery store.
That was the taste of naturally ripened fruit.
Curious, Bai Qingqing picked up a red peach that had been washed clean and bit into it.
The peach hadn’t turned completely red, but its flesh was very soft. The moment she bit into it, the flesh was cleanly removed to reveal a crimson seed covered in grooves. There wasn’t even a single drop of juice on it.
“Wow!” Bai Qingqing exclaimed. With an apple in one hand and a peach in the other, she said sincerely, “These taste really good!”
The corner of Moore’s mouth curved up stiffly. Was she really a female? Weren’t these just some normal wild fruits? How was she so satisfied with them?
“I’ll go roast some meat,” Moore said as he picked up a pheasant, which had been washed clean and placed on a leaf. He then turned around and left.
“I’ll come with you,” Bai Qingqing said in a m.u.f.fled voice while nibbling on a peach. She then choked slightly when she looked up and saw Moore’s firm b.u.t.t.
Males were really too bold and unrestrained when out in the wild. They didn’t have the sense to cover themselves up at all!
Moore crouched down outside the shelter, then turned around and glanced at Bai Qingqing. “It’s sunny outside. Don’t come out.”
