Chapter 843: Unt.i.tled
Curtis handed An’an to Bai Qingqing, then carried her and went off first.
Laying sprawled on Curtis’s shoulder, Bai Qingqing reminded Parker behind them, “Be careful not to be scalded.”
“Got it!” Parker responded with a smile, then followed them.
Curtis had already entered the lake with Bai Qingqing in his arms. He floated through the water surface steadily and very quickly swam to the sh.o.r.e.
It was a tad more troublesome for Parker, who looked like an acrobat balancing a bag of rendered fat pieces on his head and a scalding pot with each hand. Despite that though, he entered the water steadily, taking care to make the top of the oil pots stay above the water surface so that no water would enter, while he swam to the opposite sh.o.r.e.
Naturally, Curtis and Bai Qingqing arrived at home first. By then, it was already noon.
They had just entered the yard when Bai Qingqing couldn’t resist shouting out loudly, “Babies!”
Hearing her own voice, Bai Qingqing’s heart raised to her throat. She had no idea how the leopard cubs were like now, and if they were startled, or whether they would head out in search of their daddy and mommy.
But almost immediately, she heard the roars of leopard cubs from inside the house.
The leopard cubs should be sprinting, for their voices were jolting and sounded increasingly near.
Bai Qingqing quickly got down from Curtis’s arms and handed An’an to him, before das.h.i.+ng into the house with a smile.
The moment she got to the entrance of the main hall, Bai Qingqing froze.
There was bloodied fur, feathers, and also sinister-looking white bones of various shapes scattered all over the ground. The air reeked of the odor of blood and a rotting stench. It was like the place had turned into a butchery.
The leopard cubs sprinted in from the backyard, their physiques looking elegant and muscular, their golden fur glistening with a glow, starting to take after their daddy.
The three cubs raised their heads and nudged them against their stunned mother, their mouths parting and closing.
Bai Qingqing’s mouth twitched. If she hadn’t seen the house full of prey, she would have thought that her cubs had suffered a great grievance.
Although there was no conflict between the two, the traces in the house seemed to be telling of how high the perpetrators were when they were committing this.
As Curtis slithered in, he frowned in disdain.
However, among the three births, the ones Curtis doted on most were the leopard cubs. Hence, he said nothing and simply prepared to place An’an in the bedroom before coming out to tidy up the place.
Unexpectedly, when he opened the bedroom door, he couldn’t bear to enter.
It looked as though a crazy party had taken place in the bedroom. There was an unfinished prey in the house attracting a swarm of houseflies. The most dreadful thing was, several piles of vomit could be seen in the center of the bedroom.
All sorts of odors combined into a biological weapon, making one not dare to breathe in the air.
Curtis s.h.i.+fted backward.
Bai Qingqing walked past the corridor and saw Curtis retreating backward, so she halted in her footsteps and asked, with one arm on the wall, “What’s the matter?”
Curtis turned around immediately and retreated from the room with An’an in his arms.
Bai Qingqing instantly felt something amiss. She glanced at the leopard cubs and saw that they were now much more well-behaved, and were obediently nudging their heads against their mommy’s legs.
She shoved them away with a leg and walked in the direction of the bedroom. Just as she walked past Curtis, the latter grabbed her hand.
“Take An’an away to play and come back later.”
“What’s inside?” Alarm bells rang off in Bai Qingqing’s head. She retracted her hand from his hold and briskly walked towards the bedroom.
Seeing its state, Bai Qingqing couldn’t control herself from cussing.
The leopard cubs trailed after her and let out a few meek roars.
“Scram to one side!”
Bai Qingqing glanced over at her cubs and saw that they were looking spirited and not at all sickly. That could only mean that those piles of vomit were the result of over-eating.
While outside, she had been constantly worrying that they would go hungry, worried that they would be scared. But in the end, things turned out the opposite.
