“You’ve been asleep for two days. Your body kept fluctuating between cold as ice and hot as fire. I was so scared.” Parker’s voice still sounded terrified. The fear he felt was hard to be described in words. Words would only be able to express a small fraction of his feelings.
Bai Qingqing was taken by big surprise, not expecting that she’d be knocked out for two days. After the astonishment, she then felt anxious.
“Where’s Curtis? Did Saint Zachary find us? What happened to the City of Beastmen?” Bai Qingqing asked anxiously.
Winston was the one who answered these questions. “Saint Zachary is definitely searching for us. I’ve already gotten the members from the City of Beastmen to find their own places to hide. The city is now empty. We’re in a valley on a low terrain, and there are pools of water everywhere. The scorpion beastmen wouldn’t dare to come here.”
Hearing that the arrangements had been taken care of properly, she felt slightly at ease and then asked, “What about the children? Where’s An’an and the leopard cubs?”
Winston said, “Bluepool took them away. They’re the safest.”
Bai Qingqing felt completely assured. She knew that this must be Winston’s arrangement, and she looked at him with admiration. “Thank goodness there’s you.”
Winston’s face flushed up, and the corner of his lips curled up slightly.
Parker felt jealous and said, “If it wasn’t because he had emptied the place so early, we wouldn’t have ended up unable to find a doctor when you’re sick. You almost died from the illness.”
Parker was only planning on making himself stand out more, but as he spoke, the complaint in his tone increased, and he grabbed her small hand tightly from the lingering fear.
“Aren’t I alright now?” Bai Qingqing smiled, returning Parker’s grip to console him.
She understood her own body. She was very healthy, and she usually wouldn’t even catch a cold. Even if she caught a cold, she would never have to take medicine. She’d recover after a few days.
This time around, the illness just came more fiercely than it usually did, but she’d probably heal very quickly. Bai Qingqing wasn’t worried at all and only wanted to get better soon.
The three of them had a heart-warming interaction, completely neglecting the fact that an outsider was there.
Without anyone noticing him, Muir let his envy loose, not averting his gaze as he looked at them.
“I’m hungry. What’s there to eat?” Bai Qingqing asked as she looked around. To be honest, she didn’t have much of an appetite. However, in order to summon Curtis, she had to recover some stamina first.
Parker immediately went to make preparations, and he soon prepared a serving of fish soup held in a bamboo container. There weren’t any condiments, and the soup was very fishy. However, Bai Qingqing’s sense of smell and taste were all numb after not having eaten anything in two days. She drank it up like water and ate the fish as well.
After having a serving of hot food, Bai Qingqing’s stomach felt very harm, and she started to recover some strength. She couldn’t get herself to rest and said, “Bring me to somewhere high up. I’m going to get Curtis back.”
Both Parker and Winston’s eyes flashed with disapproval at the same time. Winston was still hesitating when Parker immediately said, “No! Look at how weak you are right now. You’ll become even more ill if you get drenched in the rain again.”
“But Curtis…” Bai Qingqing looked at them pleadingly. Before she could finish her sentence, Winston interrupted her.
“What Parker said makes sense. Don’t worry, Curtis is still fine. I did contact Saint Zachary. Before catching you, he won’t lay his hands on Curtis. This is his bargaining chip to lure you in.”
Bai Qingqing was still feeling unsettled. What if Saint Zachary killed Curtis out of anger? She couldn’t take the risk of this gamble.
Moreover, Saint Zachary wanted to take over Curtis’s body. He might also be able to share a connection with her, then. If that happened, he’d be able to make use of the connection between mates to locate them. They’d suffer a double loss, then.
