Chapter 846: Unt.i.tled
Curtis was obviously implying she had done a bad job. Bai Qingqing pouted unhappily and stuffed a piece of meat into her mouth, then spent the entire time heading downstairs chewing it.
When she swallowed that piece of meat, it was still nearly in its complete form, making Bai Qingqing choke and burp a few times.
Parker had returned too. The animal fats had solidified on his way back, so he closed the clams together and transformed into a leopard before carrying it back, resulting in the aroma of oil lingering on his body.
The moment he entered Bai Qingqing made him take a shower.
After taking a shower, on the way back, Parker ran into his cubs, who sprinted off immediately at the sight of him.
Parker cast a confused glance at them. The moment he got home, he asked Bai Qingqing about it.
“Why are our cubs so scared of me today?” Parker gazed at his arms. “Do I look very imposing today?”
Bai Qingqing said, “Did you run into them?”
“Mm. The moment they saw me they ran away.”
Feeling amused and annoyed at the same time, Bai Qingqing said, “That’s because they got into trouble and are afraid you would wallop them.”
She then told him about the disastrous situation at home.
Parker wrinkled his nose and crumpled his face into a bun instantly.
“I was wondering why there’s an odd stench in our home.” Parker let out a low growl from his throat, removed his skirt, then transformed into a leopard and sprinted out.
“Hey! I told you not to transform into a leopard in the village!”
Bai Qingqing hurriedly gave chase, but Parker had sprinted off into the distance. Ahead of him, three half-grown leopards maniacally fled for their lives.
Shaking her head helplessly, Bai Qingqing then heard the abrasion sounds behind. Without even having to turn her head around, she knew it was Curtis.
“Let’s set off tomorrow,” said Bai Qingqing.
Curtis grabbed her hand and walked out.
Watching the cubs scurrying around the village with Parker hot on their tails, Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but smile. “Let’s not bring along the leopard cubs. It’ll be safer for them to remain in the village. I wonder if the tribal head will agree to help look after them.”
“I’m sure he will,” Curtis said with certainty.
The duo walked to the tree hole where the tribal head resided, and Bai Qingqing went straight to the point about her intent.
The tribal head chuckled and said without hesitation, “Of course. You’re His Majesty’s partner, so we will naturally look after your offspring. You can ask them to eat at our place every day. I can still afford to feed a few leopard cubs.”
Despite his burly build, when he smiled, the tribal head exuded an amicable feel and not a hint of the ferocity of wild beasts.
Bai Qingqing said gratefully, “Thank you so much. We’ll return your food when we get back.”
“No need. His Majesty has given us way too many things. This insignificant help is nothing compared to that,” said the tribal head.
After exchanging some pleasantries, the satisfied Bai Qingqing prepared to leave. However, Curtis didn’t look like he was leaving.
The tribal head asked, “Is anything else the matter?”
Curtis said, “I wish to borrow some beastmen to protect Snow.”
The tribal head hesitated for a moment.
Bai Qingqing immediately said, “There’s no need for this. We’ll be causing them too much trouble.”
“Your safety is what matters most,” Curtis said resolutely.
The tribal head gave it some thought, then opened his mouth and let out a deep tiger growl from his throat.
The roar of the tiger caused the ground to tremble. The young tiger beastmen in the village, as well as several males who didn’t understand tiger language, came running over.
“Bai Qingqing wishes to go to the desert and needs some protectors. Any volunteers?” The tribal head asked loudly.
The crowd of beastmen instantly responded vigorously. There wasn’t a bachelor beastmen who wasn’t excited to hear this. Those who already had spouses didn’t make a sound, leaving the opportunity to the young beastmen.
Curtis’s gaze swept over them, before finally landing on the eagle beastmen who didn’t show any response.
