Chapter 883: Snake and Tiger Show a Public Display of Affection
Parker threw a glance at Bai Qingqing.
She was just eating. Did she have to look as if she was looking at death in the face?
Parker was feeling puzzled when a soft and slender hand held onto his chin, and his mate’s face then went up right in front of him.
“Mmm?” Parker opened his leopard eyes wide, stunned as he received the food from his mate’s mouth.
Bai Qingqing parted from his mouth. Looking at his stunned face, she said while appearing tough on the outside but weak inside, “You’re aren’t allowed to regard it with disdain. I don’t want to do this, either. You were the one without the strength to eat.”
Parker swallowed the food, and the tail behind his bag wagged furiously.
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief as if a great burden has been taken off her. Thankfully, she hadn’t guessed wrongly. Parker didn’t dislike it and even seemed willing to accept it.
She took another big bite and then chewed hard.
She was also feeling very hungry, and it hadn’t been easy for her to chew up the food, yet it was going to end up in someone else’s stomach. She felt mentally tired.
After feeding him the entire piece of meat, Bai Qingqing felt that her cheeks were almost dislocated.
“Finally done with one,” Bai Qingqing said, feeling consoled. She took out another big piece.
Parker’s temples twitched.
Curtis wouldn’t kill him if he were to come back to find that the food was gone, would he?
“Why are you in a daze? Open your mouth.” Bai Qingqing’s cheeks puffed up as she said in a blurry voice.
“Oh.” Parker forgot his earlier hesitation and excitedly came into contact with his mate’s mouth.
Forget it! He’d just eat!
When Curtis brought Winston back, he saw the scene of the duo “entangled” together and pa.s.sing food through their mouths.
The sound of a flickering tongue lowered the surrounding temperature.
Winston, covered in dust, also wore a grim expression. The scar on his face twitched.
Parker’s ears twitched, and his eyes turned to face outside.
Bai Qingqing followed his gaze, only to discover Curtis and Winston. She said happily, “Winston! Curtis! You guys are finally back!”
Curtis’s body shook and he arrived at the hole, his tail piercing toward Parker.
Bai Qingqing had been together with Curtis for three years. Bai Qingqing just needed a gaze from him to be able to tell what he was going to do. Long before Curtis made a move, she went to stand in front of Parker.
“Parker’s hurt and has no strength to chew the jerky. If I don’t feed him, he’s going to die from hunger.”
“Is that so?” Curtis said coldly.
Bai Qingqing nodded vigorously. “Look, he’s covered in wounds.”
Curtis threw a glance at Parker’s countenance and knew that this leopard was resorting to petty tricks. He threw him a gaze that suggested that he was going to take revenge at a later time, deciding not to do anything for now.
Winston came in after Curtis. Bai Qingqing took his hand while raising the luminous ball with the other hand to a.s.sess his face.
“You’ve become thinner.”
Winston had a huge bone rack, to begin with. After becoming thinner, she could now see the bulging bones on his face. His lips were also dry and flaking. G.o.d knew how long it had been since he last drank water.
“Quickly have some water. We don’t have much food, but our water can last for many days,” Bai Qingqing said.
Winston’s eyes gleamed and he licked his lips, receiving the bowl Bai Qingqing pa.s.sed him and pouring a full bowl from the jar. He then gulped it all down in a few mouthfuls.
Only after drinking three consecutive bowls of water did Winston suppress his yearning for it. If it wasn’t because there was a limited supply of water, he could still drink a few more bowls of it.
“Why are you guys here? I’ve saved up over 300 black crystals. I’ll be able to go back in another three or more months,” Winston said.
Both Bai Qingqing and Parker exchanged a glance, then smiled.
“It’s really 1,000 black crystals,” Bai Qingqing said.
Winston said, feeling strange, “How do you guys know?”
“I met the scorpion king just now.” After saying that, Bai Qingqing added, “He’s a strange male.”
