The golden leopard instantly turned into a brown color. With the densely packed bees sticking onto his body, the scene could deal an instant kill to anyone with trypophobia.
Bai Qingqing didn’t even dare to look. She squinted her eyes and pointed to him, saying, “Go save Third quickly.”
Muir glanced at the bees that were about to reach Bai Qingqing and, for the first time, didn’t listen to what she said. He carried her with both claws and dashed out from the tree crown.
“Ahhh! Children!” Bai Qingqing turned and looked worriedly toward the tree crown that was getting further and further away. She then saw two panicking leopard heads from the purple flowers.
They should have given up on seeking help and their heads shrank back at the next second, disappearing somewhere.
“Just put me down anywhere and quickly go and get the children out,” Bai Qingqing said anxiously.
“Screech—” Muir replied, and when he saw that Curtis had already stopped under the tree they had been at previously, he immediately dashed over.
Before the eagle beastman landed, Curtis used his tail to prop himself higher up, carrying Bai Qingqing off from the eagle beastman’s back.
“Curtis.” Bai Qingqing wanted to get his help, but when she saw that his expression was black as a pot’s bottom, she instantly fell silent and threw Muir an urging glance.
He then flew off immediately.
“Was it fun?” Curtis didn’t allow her to escape and used his hand to turn her face back to him.
Bai Qingqing gulped guiltily, then shook her head while feeling aggrieved, “It wasn’t fun. The children licked a beehive.”
Curtis’s countenance changed, and he immediately raised her, turning her around to check her. “Are you alright?”
Bai Qingqing felt a lot more relaxed after hearing the worry in his voice. She said, “I’m fine. But the children are still on the tree.”
Curtis couldn’t bear to be angry at his mate when he saw how pitiful she looked. He carried her and walked over to the tree.
It was a height of several hundred meters, and there were many stacking layers of branches and leaves. They couldn’t see a single bee, let alone any sight of the leopard cubs.
“Don’t worry. I’ll go up and check things out.”
Curtis placed her onto a branch that grew horizontally, then said, “Grab onto this branch.”
“En, en.” Bai Qingqing docilely grabbed onto another branch that grew next to the branch she was on, then said urgingly, “Go on quickly. I’ll wait here for you guys.”
Curtis looked worriedly around before climbing up.
Snake beastmen also excelled in climbing trees. Curtis’s speed was extremely fast, and he disappeared amongst the branches in a flash.
When Muir flew back up to the tree crown, the leopards were nowhere to be seen. There were only the bees that were so densely packed that no gaps could be seen between them.
Strange. Where were the leopard cubs? Could these be carnivorous bees?
Muir felt both shocked and scared. If the leopard cubs were eaten under his watch, he wouldn’t dare to imagine how disappointed and enraged Qingqing would be at him.
Muir quickly reacted. These bees lived amongst flowers, so they couldn’t be carnivorous. They’d at most sting beastmen and render them unable to move.
Then, it must mean that the leopard cubs had run off by themselves.
He felt at ease and cried out while searching for the leopard cubs.
Somehow, the leopard cubs had all darted up to the crown of the trees nearby. From either the green or purple bunches, a leopard head popped out, darted a look, then shrank back. Another head then popped out, looked around, then disappeared. If they saw a branch in which they could jump onto to escape, they’d leap over and sink into another crown, not fearing for the great height at all. As they passed through the crowns, the densely packed leaves could effectively stop the bees’ pursuit.
There were supposed to be only three leopard cubs, but it seemed as if there was a large group of them.
When they heard the eagle cries from the beehive’s tree crown, the leopard cubs started howling as well, exposing their locations.
