Chapter 992: Unt.i.tled
At the thought of green crystals, Bai Qingqing suddenly thought of how she was still holding onto some of Muir’s green crystals. She should go visit him personally later and return the green crystals to him.
“The surface of the food is done roasting. I’ll carry An’an. Qingqing, eat up quickly.” As Winstone said this, he took An’an’s from her.
Parker immediately prepared roasted meat for her.
Bai Qingqing broke free from Curtis’s arms and blocked in front of him, saying, “You just sit behind us.”
Curtis smiled, and the feelings of disgust he felt from Saint Zachary dissipated a little.
“We managed to push Saint Zachary back this time around, killing a large portion of his tribesmen. He should also understand that we aren’t to be trifled with,” Parker said proudly while feeling jealous inside.
Next time, he must get Winston to stay back and keep watch at home while he headed off to the battlefield!
Winston cradled An’an in his arms. His actions and expression were very gentle, but his tone was extremely cold. “Rootless beasts are all lunatics. Rootless beasts with targets are even crazier. They won’t give up easily. Catching Curtis is just secondary. His primary target is Qingqing. Qingqing, sorry that you’ll have to go through this, but you should stay in the village these few days.”
Toward the very end, Winston’s tone sounded as if he ached for her.
Bai Qingqing nodded heavily. “I know.”
In order to let her mates feel at ease, Bai Qingqing waved her hand as if unconcerned, saying, “I’ve had fun in the desert previously, and I’m fatigued anyway, so I can’t be bothered to go out. My scorched feet are still feeling tough. It hurts even when I walk.”
Bai Qingqing crossed her legs, placing one on top of the other, holding onto her sole that had a thick layer of dead scorched skin onto it. She was only intending to console her mates when she suddenly felt a little aggrieved.
Parker quickly threw the roasted meat aside and grabbed onto her legs, his golden beast eyes glaring wide, filled with reproach, remorse, heartache, and other feelings.
This pair of feet had been so soft in the past, just like cooked rice. However, they now seemed as if they were covered in a layer of hard and yellow husks.
“To think that your feet are burned so badly. Why didn’t you say so earlier?” Parker’s heart ached so much that he felt like crying. He raised Bai Qingqing’s foot and was planning on licking it.
Bai Qingqing almost fell back from this. Thankfully, Curtis was behind her, and she fell into his cooling embrace.
“Parker! We’re about to eat meat! Don’t touch my feet!” Bai Qingqing was caught between being angry and amused.
However, Parker didn’t listen to her and was still planning on licking her foot. Bai Qingqing moved her foot a little to the side but was unable to break free from his grip. She decided to just kick his face.
Bai Qingqing didn’t use any force, and when that soft strength came into contact with his face, it didn’t show any blame but showed intimacy.
Curtis and Winston appeared nervous as well. They had been busy dealing with the scorpion tribe over the past few days, so they didn’t notice the abnormality on their mate’s body. As her mates, they had failed.
Curtis hugged Bai Qingqing once again. Winston placed An’an down by his side and took her other foot to take a look.
When Bai Qingqing saw that they were all so solemn, although she felt that she had been pampered too much that she had become too delicate, she couldn’t bear to refuse them. She smiled and said, “Alright, since you aren’t a.s.sured, then help me rub them.”
Both Parker and Winston rubbed one of her feet each.
“They must have been burned on the day Curtis fell unconscious.” Winston thought back before saying. That was the only time Bai Qingqing had walked under the scorching sun. She was no fool and wouldn’t usually stand on the sand to have her feet burned.
Curtis didn’t have memories from that time. His expression became a little stunned, then he furrowed his brows, feeling remorse. However, his lips couldn’t help but arch up. It was really contradicting.
