Chapter 975: Lecturing the Leopard Cubs (2)
“She’s basically fine now. There’s still some remnant poison, but I don’t dare to go look for the scorpion tribe anymore. Just let An’an slowly expel the poison.” After saying that, Bai Qingqing slid into the water. It felt very good to take a cold bath on a hot day. She hadn’t managed to clean herself properly earlier, so she planned on doing a thorough cleaning now.
Bluepool had sneakily gone to the stone castle on a full moon night once. His heart wrenched up when he heard those heartbreaking cries. Hearing this, he sighed and said, “It’s fine that some of it has been neutralized.”
Bai Qingqing nodded happily.
“Hey, call the little silverfish over.” Bai Qingqing couldn’t wait to do a thorough cleaning of her entire body.
Bluepool’s mouth opened “silently”. Not long later, a stretch of silver light rose from the bottom of the water, crowding around Bai Qingqing.
There must be ample “food” for the little silverfish to be so enthusiastic. Bai Qingqing’s cheeks flushed up a little when she realized this.
To get rid of the awkwardness, she tried to look for a topic to talk about. “Why don’t you keep them in bubbles? Aren’t you afraid that they will get eaten by bigger fish?”
As Bai Qingqing said this, she looked around. The number of big fish in the water had clearly surged. There were even fishes the length of one’s arm eating aquatic plants on the surface of the water. Even when little silverfish went close to them, they just allowed them to do as they wished.
Bluepool said, “After adapting to this place for several months, the fishes here all realize the unique characteristic of the little silverfish and won’t eat them anymore.”
“What if they get hungry and eat them?” Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to believe the self-control of fish.
Bluepool smiled and said, “This is the rule. If any fish didn’t abide by it, the little silverfish would slowly notice and stop helping them to clean their body.”
Bai Qingqing said in surprise, “This works? They’re really smart.”
Bluepool smiled even brighter. “You’re making it sound as if they are smarter than you.”
Beastmen didn’t think of themselves as superior animals. To them, there was only the distinction between the strong and the weak. Therefore, they wouldn’t consider themselves as being smarter than animals. Bluepool had taken Bai Qingqing’s words seriously and thus couldn’t help but smile.
They only remembered dangerous elements, so why was that considered smart? Only females would think this since they didn’t need to hunt.
However, Bai Qingqing didn’t manage to get Bluepool’s train of thoughts. She thought that he was teasing her and rolled her eyes.
However, she felt a lot more a.s.sured to see him so relaxed.
It seemed that Bluepool didn’t harbor feelings of love toward her. When he saw her, he felt happy as if he had met a friend, unlike how Parker and the others felt agitated toward her. Even Muir could pose a stark contrast against Bluepool.
Pop~ The leopard cubs struggled for quite a while before their claws finally burst the air bubble. Air gushed out from the water, releasing quite a loud sound.
The leopard cubs were completely soaked in water and were given a shock. They cried out instinctively, only to produce moans. They swung their limbs and put up an intense struggle.
They were given a bad scare, but they were brought up to the surface of the water at the next second. Their wet heads floated above the water and they kept on coughing.
Bai Qingqing swam up to them, her heart aching for them as she patted their backs. She also threw Bluepool a reproachful gaze.
Bluepool averted his gaze, feeling guilty.
“Oh, right. I’ll remind you of one thing,” she suddenly said.
She a.s.sessed the surroundings and then said, “Scorpions shouldn’t know how to swim, right? You won’t be in any danger, but I should tell you about this first. In another few days, scorpion beastmen might come to invade us. You must be careful when going out to hunt.”
Bluepool didn’t have a good impression toward scorpion beastmen. He frowned, his expression filled with disdain.
“I got it. But this time around, the females can’t hide in here anymore. There isn’t enough oxygen.”
