Chapter 908: Sightseeing in the Oasis
“Oh my, just let things take their natural course.” Bai Qingqing waved her hand. “Come, let’s go to other places.”
“En.” Winston immediately followed behind Bai Qingqing.
Bai Qingqing saw the golden fruits from the corner of her eyes, and saliva flooded her mouth.
It could be a pregnancy reaction or that she hadn’t replenished vitamins for very long, Bai Qingqing still wanted to eat the lemons.
Therefore, she plucked off another two fruits, sniffed them, then walked off.
This oasis was quite big, and there were hoof prints of quite a number of animals. Parker left for a while, and it wasn’t long before he came back with a big and fat goat in his mouth.
Since the prey was killed, they should eat it while it was still fresh.
Bai Qingqing said, “Parker, you go back first. I’ll gather some wild vegetables with Winston, and we’ll head back in a while.”
Howwl! Parker let out a m.u.f.fled reply and then ran with the bag of food.
It was rare for Winston to be alone with Bai Qingqing. He suddenly felt a little nervous.
“Are you tired? Should I carry you?” Winston asked softly.
Bai Qingqing wasn’t tired, but the back of her feet was in pain from the gra.s.s ropes. Hearing that, she came to a stop and said, “Alright.”
Winston was pleasantly surprised and immediately squatted down.
A soft body came up onto his body, and he stood up slowly, surprised by his mate’s weight once again.
She was so light, lighter than the prey he hunted every time.
It must be very hard on her to have to feed and bring up so many children.
Winston’s heart ached for her, and he said in a deep voice, “There’s no need to eat less. There’s enough food.”
He was referring to Curtis’s words earlier, in which he told Bai Qingqing to eat less.
Bai Qingqing laid her head sluggishly onto Winston’s st.u.r.dy shoulder and said, “Curtis is worried that it won’t be easy to give birth if the baby is too big.”
Winston fell silent.
“Hey, the path of gra.s.s there looks very tender. Let’s go and take a look.”
The two of them arrived at the gra.s.s patch. They looked like evergreen Chinese cabbage but less fat and not as green. These were slender, long, and had a lighter color. There were traces of them being eaten by bugs and animals, so they should be safe to eat.
Winston still ate one, not feeling a.s.sured, before he let Bai Qingqing try one.
“Uhhh, it’s fine.” Bai Qingqing nodded. The taste was like Chinese cabbage as well, so it should be fine.
“Let’s pick these back to eat.”
After they had washed up the vegetables and returned to their temporary residence, Parker had already started to fry the meat.
A large piece of lean meat that was about one centimeter thick was laid out in the stone pan, scattered with various condiments, and was smelling very nice.
Bai Qingqing let out a “wow”. Wasn’t this lamb steak?
“Why did you do it this way today? It’s so thick.”
Parker said, “The animals here seem to be lacking in natural foes and rarely exercise, so their flesh is very tender. You should be able to bite through them easily.”
“Really?” Bai Qingqing salivated. Looking at the meat in the pan, she had thought of how to eat the lemons.
Steak with lemon juice was the best match.
As for the vegetables, Bai Qingqing planned on eating them raw.
Parker had the experience of juicing oranges for her before and easily squeezed out the lemon juice, then diluted it with some lake water.
Bai Qingqing took a sip, and her expression became distorted once again. “It’s… it’s not bad.”
Parker had gotten scared after tasting lemons once. After seeing Bai Qingqing drinking it, he shuddered and thought: Qingqing had such a strong taste preference.
However, when eating the meat, the sour lemon water became a delicious drink to get rid of the greasiness.
Parker ate the meat in large bites. When he saw Bai Qingqing enjoying the drink, he took a sip secretly.
“Ugh~” Parker’s expression changed and he held it in, not spitting it out. However, after he swallowed it, he suddenly realized that the taste wasn’t bad. It left a refres.h.i.+ng taste in his mouth, and his appet.i.te improved.
