Chapter 858: Delicacy in the Desert (2)
Curtis didn’t care about this at all. In his eyes, beastmen were no different from ordinary animals. They could be eaten as well.
The egg fragrance rose in the air, causing Bai Qingqing to gulp. She reached for the salt jar from the luggage and scattered a small pinch.
She then applied another layer of oil into the pan, flipped the egg crepe over, then continued frying it.
About ten minutes later, an egg crepe was done.
Bai Qingqing struggled about eating it for a moment while drooling. She eventually glanced at An’an, who was smacking her lips while laying by the side, and, clearly not having had her fill yet, she summoned her courage, picked up the egg, and stuffed it into her mouth.
The egg that was cooked at low temperature was extremely tender and had a slight stench. However, when mixed together with the animal fats, they formed a strange delicacy, instantly subduing Bai Qingqing’s taste buds.
Bai Qingqing gulped down the egg and was enjoying the delicacy when her heart wavered.
It tasted so good. Should she fry another one?
However, she didn’t know where this egg came from and was very worried. She might be eating what could become a male beastman in ten or more years.
Just as Bai Qingqing was struggling over this, Curtis had already cracked a second egg.
Looking at the glistening yellow egg in the pan, Bai Qingqing took another mouthful of egg crepe and instantly decided to give up on the treatment.
“I’ll eat it!”
Bai Qingqing clenched her fist and bellowed.
Curtis smiled, cracking another two eggs.
There were a total of five eggs, and Bai Qingqing finished all of them in one sitting. After taking a rest, she started to have a surge in her milk.
An’an finally got to have a full meal, and the remaining eggsh.e.l.ls were all eaten by Curtis as well. He quite liked to eat eggs, but he liked the taste of the crispy eggsh.e.l.ls even more.
When the sun set in the west, the beastmen crawled out and continued on their way.
After going through hards.h.i.+p, everyone gradually got used to things. They started to travel at night and rest in the day.
Curtis’s wariness allowed them to avoid many dangers, and they went on without going through any mishaps.
At night, Curtis would go around to look for food for Bai Qingqing. She got better food and even managed to try many delicacies that couldn’t be found in forests.
Five days pa.s.sed by in the blink of an eye. They persisted until the sunlight became intense before stopping.
“We should have traveled half the journey.” Alva reckoned.
Bai Qingqing planted a hard kiss on his face, saying in delight, “That’s great. We’ll arrive at Flame City in another five days. An’an, we’ll be able to see your daddy very soon.”
An’an had clearly become skinnier in these five days, but she looked even more exquisite and adorable now. She was also a lot more spirited.
She rolled her eyes gradually, reaching to grab Bai Qingqing’s clothes.
Bai Qingqing quickly turned her back to the beastmen and leaned on Curtis while feeding An’an.
Parker threw a glance at Bai Qingqing and then quickly diverted the tiger beastmen’s gazes. “Everyone, come and have some water!”
The parched beastmen all gushed toward him, not noticing the wonderful view next to them at all.
Curtis started to fry eggs for Bai Qingqing again. She’d eat a few big eggs every day, and that helped to produce a lot of milk. Bai Qingqing felt that An’an was going to have a fill and thought that things weren’t good.
“An’an, hold on.” Bai Qingqing gently pulled An’an away and let her feed on the milk on the other side.
There was too much milk. If An’an had her fill, it’d be too late for her.
It was a pity that it was still too late. After An’an’s mouth parted away, she got too lazy to continue eating. Even though Bai Qingqing brought her chest to An’an’s mouth, she turned her head away.
Bai Qingqing felt like crying. “Go on and eat. Your leopard brothers aren’t around. What’s Mommy going to do?”
Moreover, milk contained a tremendous amount of moisture. How precious was water in the desert?
