Chapter 851: On the Road to the Desert (3)
A bird’s shadow moved around on the golden sand. Alva circled in the air for a while and landed when he saw that they weren’t planning to move on.
His huge but beautiful wings sent up sand and rocks flying, making it hard for them to open their eyes. However, it also brought along a cooling sensation.
“Aren’t we going to move on?” Alva turned into his human form and asked.
Parker said, “It’s time for Qingqing to eat.”
“Everyone, put down your luggage and take a break,” Parker said loudly.
The tiger beastmen tilted their bodies and allowed the heavy luggage on their bodies to slide down. They stretched their bodies, occasionally sticking out their tongues to lick their noses that had been dried by the wind.
Parker pulled the luggage over and rummaged for food.
“Everyone’s thirsty. Parker, give them some water,” Bai Qingqing said.
The tiger beastmen immediately became spirited and ran over with their tongues stuck out.
Parker first poured a bowl of water for Bai Qingqing, then gave each beastman a big bowl of water. He then also brought a bowl for Curtis.
Water was usually tasteless, but it felt sweeter than honey in the desert.
However, Bai Qingqing only took a small sip. She then brought the bowl to An’an’s lips and carefully fed her.
“Qingqing, there aren’t any firewood in the desert. You can only have cold meat.” Parker stored a bowl of jerky in a bowl and placed a few pieces of rendered fat pieces.
“I made these last night. I added a lot of salt for fear that the rendered fat pieces would spoil, so it might be a little salty. Eat it together with the jerky.”
“It’s not cold meat. It’s clearly hot.” Bai Qingqing picked up a piece of jerky that had been roasted by the high temperature and teased him.
Parker gently flicked her forehead. “Eat it quickly.”
“En,” Bai Qingqing replied and took a bite of the meat. It tasted like wood, and her cheeks felt sore after she swallowed the mouthful of meat.
This was really the best way to slim down one’s face.
The rendered fat lost its crispiness under the high temperature, tasting soft and oily. It was unbearable to be taken by itself, but it didn’t taste bad when taken together with the jerky.
It was so hot that Bai Qingqing couldn’t even open her eyes. She took a glance at An’an and then squinted her eyes and tried to continue eating.
The tiger beastmen also felt very hot. Seeing that Bai Qingqing wasn’t going to finish up anytime soon, they dug at the sand and buried themselves in, exposing only half of their heads.
Alva took a look at the sand, then glanced at his colorful and beautiful feathers. He hesitated for quite a while before also burying himself into the sand.
Bai Qingqing was worrying about how she should feed An’an when she saw this. She was elated and pushed Parker, saying, “Go bring out their animal skin skirts and cover their heads to block the sunlight.”
It’d also block their vision. This was simply killing two birds with one stone! Hahahaha!
The beastmen buried in the sand cried out gratefully. They were also complaining that the sunlight was glaring and wished that their animal skin could fly up to their heads. It was really a dream come true.
Parker covered their heads for them. After going through a round of checks, Bai Qingqing then said to Curtis, “Carry An’an over to me. My hands are greasy.”
Curtis said, “Hmmm?”
Bai Qingqing pulled down her clothing, exposing her well-endowed b.r.e.a.s.t.s. Curtis immediately understood her intention and carried An’an to her chest.
When Parker returned and saw this, his throat tightened. He walked over to her side but didn’t mention anything in case the other beastmen were to have strange fantasies.
“Qingqing, is it hot?”
Parker touched her face. The skin under his hand was red and hot, causing him to frown in worry.
“En.” Bai Qingqing frowned.
