Chapter 826: You Smell Very Nice
It hadn’t been long before the sound of scales rubbing against the floor rang out from inside the cave.
Bai Qingqing beamed and walked in.
A snake that wasn’t very big appeared from the darkness, gradually standing up and turning into a young man with a long and slender figure.
Bai Qingqing rocked An’an and said, “I’ve told you many times that when you change to your human form, you have to wear an animal skin skirt. Quickly go and put it on.”
“En.” The little snake was about to turn when he suddenly paused in his footsteps, turned back, and put his head close to Bai Qingqing’s body.
Bai Qingqing moved away. “What’s the matter?”
“You smell so nice—” The little snake’s voice sounded a little stupid, and his red lips flicked out a long and slender tongue, touching Bai Qingqing’s arm.
His tongue shrank back into his mouth, and the little snake’s expression turned into an intoxicated one like that of a drug addict.
Bai Qingqing was stunned. Was even the little snake able to smell the change to her body scent?
Bai Qingqing slapped the little snake’s head and chided. “Quickly go put on your clothing!”
The little snake swung his head hard and stood up straight, then turned and ran off with a swoosh.
Bai Qingqing a.s.sessed the cave’s environment meanwhile. It looked shabby as if no one stayed here. Her heart ached for him.
Placing An’an down on the gra.s.s pile, Bai Qingqing tied her hair back and started to tidy up the cave.
After quite a while, the little snake came out with his animal skin skirt on.
“Why did it take you so long to put on your clothes?” Bai Qingqing looked at the little snake strangely.
The little snake grabbed onto his smooth red hair that hung down his shoulders, saying, “I’m not too good at it.”
Bai Qingqing smiled and said, “Mommy can accompany you for a little longer today. Is there anything you want to eat? Why don’t you go look for a nest of bird eggs and I’ll make steamed eggs for you?”
Snake beastmen rarely liked cooked food, but the little snake had eaten steamed egg when he was young. In his memories, it was an amazing delicacy. A large amount of saliva was instantly secreted in the little snake’s mouth.
Gulping, he said, “I’ll go out and play with mommy.”
Bai Qingqing gave it some thought and agreed. With her trip to the desert, she had no idea when she’d be able to see the little snake again. She should spend more time with him if she could.
The little snake was overjoyed and quickly picked An’an up, putting on the vest that was used to carry her.
An’an didn’t even look up when she landed in a pair of unfamiliar arms. She continued chewing on her piece of wood.
The two of them left the cave. The little snake carried An’an on his back and led the way. Bai Qingqing said, “Little snake, walk slower. My feet hurt.”
The little snake instantly turned back to look at her, his gaze landing on Bai Qingqing’s fair and tender feet. He then turned back and squatted down in front of her. “I’ll carry you on my back.”
When Bai Qingqing saw that the little snake wanted to carry her on his back despite his small figure, she found it amusing.
“Where are you thinking of bringing me? Let’s just find a clean and cooling piece of gra.s.sland. There’s no need for you to carry me.”
The little snake said, “The beastmen in the village will kill me if they find me. I don’t dare to let others notice me. Let’s go outside the village.”
Bai Qingqing was stunned and hesitated. “It’s very dangerous outside the village.”
The little snake immediately said, “It’ll be fine. I’ll be very careful and not let wild beasts come close. Even if they come, I can defeat them!”
Bai Qingqing understood that males of his age were very complacent as they had just obtained stronger abilities. Therefore, she shouldn’t believe the little snake. However, she still agreed.
“Then, you must protect Mommy well.”
Bai Qingqing smiled. She still had her mates’ protection, there was no way that her life would be in danger.
The little snake beamed.
