Chapter 979: Settling Muir Down
“Is there enough time?” The tribal head said, not feeling at ease. However, his eyes were gleaming with antic.i.p.ation.
He had long wanted to wipe out those feral scorpion beastmen. They often came to s.n.a.t.c.h their females. Otherwise, their village wouldn’t have been left with only 20 over females at the point their king came.
Winston said, “It’ll be a few more days. We have time.”
The small fries from the scorpion tribe would be left to the other beastmen in the village. Their enemy was Saint Zachary.
Winston said a few more words, bringing the atmosphere to the greatest height. He then handed the follow-up work to the tribal head.
Seeing that Winston had left, Bai Qingqing extricated herself from Curtis’s arms and then ran downstairs, saying, “Come down quickly. Curtis, you’ll be responsible for hunting. Parker and Winston have just come back, so the two of you go take a bath and freshen up, then get ready to eat.”
She was very energetic and disappeared without a trace in just a moment. She didn’t realize that she finally had the disposition of the head of the family.
This was the first time Curtis had been ordered in such a way, but he didn’t mind it. He only felt that it was interesting and replied, “I’ll go right away.”
This was despite Bai Qingqing having run far away and thus not having heard his reply.
Curtis turned into his snake form and slid down the walls. Parker smacked his dry lips, only feeling starved and parched upon Bai Qingqing’s reminder. He jumped down like the wind and went to look for water.
The leopard cubs liked racing. When they saw their daddy running fast, they also gave chase at their fastest speed. One of them wasn’t careful, leading to all three of them falling into a bunch at the turning point at the stairways.
The fragrance of the roasted meat filled up the s.p.a.cious main hall. Bai Qingqing urged Parker and Winston to quickly eat meat and then suddenly recalled that she didn’t see Muir.
“Where’s Muir?” Bai Qingqing looked outside. As a Chinese, she wouldn’t feel at ease leaving someone alone without caring for them after bringing them to an unfamiliar place.
But after taking a look at Curtis, she swallowed the rest of her words.
“I didn’t pay attention,” Parker spoke up in a m.u.f.fled voice as he gulped down the food.
Winston swallowed the food in his mouth and replied, “I saw him on top of a tree earlier. I don’t know where he has gone off to now. Should I go and bring him in?”
Curtis’s face didn’t have any expression at first, but after hearing this, for some reason, it felt that his disposition had turned cold.
Bai Qingqing waved her hand and said, “Winston, you can eat first and then go look for him later. This stone castle is our home. We’ll just let him stay at the tree hole we were previously staying at.”
Curtis’s countenance warmed up gradually. He then slithered into the bedroom to rest.
Winston nodded and said, “Alright.”
After the meal, Bai Qingqing told Winston and Parker to get some rest while she went off to look for Muir. They had traveled long distances for so many days, they were too tired.
Bai Qingqing guessed that Muir was near the stone castle, so she ran out barefooted. She stood outside and looked around.
The sun was blazing, and the female standing on the gra.s.s couldn’t keep her eyes open. Her body, which was exposed under the sun, was s.h.i.+vering. She seemed very uncomfortable, but she didn’t leave.
The wind blew at the snakeskin dress she was wearing, bringing out her beautiful figure. She was pet.i.te but exquisite, her snow-white skin looking even fairer and translucent under the sunlight. Her beautiful and spirited face looked flawlessly fair, covered with a layer of soft facial hair, which made her look even softer.
Muir looked at her in a daze. The sharper his vision, the harder it was for him to peel his eyes away. Even after looking at her so many times, he’d still go into a daze from looking at her.
He wanted to continue looking at her like this forever, but he couldn’t bear to see her exposed to the sun. He quickly came back to his senses and jumped down from the tree.
Bai Qingqing looked over after hearing sounds. Seeing that it was Muir, she quickly ran over.
Arriving in front of him, she quickly handed the skirt she was holding to him.
