Chapter 862: Food Has Been s.n.a.t.c.hed
The situation would become worse if they lost the water.
Curtis curled up all the remaining things and said to the tiger beastmen, “You guys can go back now.”
The tiger beastmen were stunned, and all of them looked in Bai Qingqing’s direction, unwilling to part with her.
Bai Qingqing waved her hand at them.
The tiger beastmen walked over in Bai Qingqing’s direction. The tiger beastman in the lead said, “We know that you won’t become mates with us. After we return to the village, we’ll look for other mates. But if you need to increase your mates in the future, please do not forget us.”
Bai Qingqing smiled awkwardly. “I don’t think I’ll become mates with anyone else. But I won’t forget about you guys. Thank you for your help.”
The tiger beastmen looked at the female’s beautiful smiling face and were all stunned. They then got back to their senses after hearing an enraged shout.
Parker ran over to Bai Qingqing’s side with a cold face, waving his hand, and said, “Quickly go. This half a jar of water…”
He then hesitated. It was fine for them to go without the water, but if they had one jar less, it wouldn’t be convenient to set up a tent for Bai Qingqing.
“Bring a jar of water with you.” Bai Qingqing continued from Parker’s words and then knelt by a jar, tugging off the animal skin.
Parker said anxiously, “This one over here is full! Take the one over there!”
“We drank half a jar in five days. That jar only has a little left. How would it be enough for them on their trip back?” Bai Qingqing said.
The tiger beastmen smiled and said, “It’s enough. We’ll be able to return to the village in at most three days. We’ll be fine even without water.”
They took half a jar of water with them. Bai Qingqing wanted to get Parker to share some food with them, but the tiger beastmen immediately refused upon seeing that there was only one bag of food left. They ran back in the direction of their village with half a jar of water.
Parker set up the tent again. With one jar less, it could only be made into a triangular one.
Alva stayed behind. He looked at the quicksand river and said, “Let’s change to another place. This quicksand is too scary.”
Curtis held onto the rope and seemed to be lost in his thoughts. He suddenly said, “I want to go down to take a look.”
Bai Qingqing crawled to the sides of the tent and said anxiously, “It’s too dangerous!”
Curtis tossed the rope into the quicksand and said to him, “Come over here and hold onto the rope. I’ll climb up by myself later.”
Parker looked at him as if he was a nutcase. However, he also felt curious about the quicksand and patted Bai Qingqing’s shoulder to console her before running over to Curtis’s side.
Curtis handed the rope to Parker and then jumped into the quicksand river.
Bai Qingqing held her breathing and screamed as she watched Curtis’s tail being engulfed by the quicksand. “Come up quickly!”
Curtis smiled at her, then waved his tail. Half of his body was immediately engulfed by the sand.
Bai Qingqing almost shrieked. Without thinking, she dashed out of the tent and ran toward him.
The sand under her feet felt like a heated iron plate. When she stepped on it, she felt like a piece of meat on an iron plate
Bai Qingqing jumped her way to Parker’s side, reaching for Curtis. “Come up!”
Curtis’s body sank, and he was completely immersed in the quicksand.
Bai Qingqing looked at the sand that returned to calmness, unable to believe that Curtis had disappeared just like that.
He wouldn’t suffocate to death, right? He shouldn’t. He was able to hold his breath in the water for very long.
There was nothing to be scared of, there was nothing to be scared of. She could summon Curtis back. He wouldn’t go missing.
That should be possible, right? She wondered if she could use normal spouses’ powers in the same way.
Parker carried Bai Qingqing up and touched her feet, saying angrily, “Do you want to die?”
