Muir dashed toward the source of the sound at the fastest speed possible, and when he saw a leopard cub looking at him with an anxious gaze, Muir felt like a huge burden had been relieved from his heart and his heart turned extremely soft. He immediately flew over and pecked his fur to console him.
It was unknown if this leopard cub had been rubbing against the trees for too much that his fur was all messed up. Muir hadn’t seen a leopard with his fur so messed up before.
He grabbed the leopard cub and flew down, handed him to Bai Qingqing, then continued his search.
Curtis heard leopard howls coming from all directions and gave up attempting to search for them. He changed to seek revenge for them.
He climbed all the way to the tree crown and easily found the large beehive.
Curtis lashed out with his snake tail and swept a piece of the golden beehive the size of a table away. This completely enraged the bees, and they charged toward the invader in fury, not caring for their fragile lives.
Curtis’s body was covered in scales and naturally didn’t fear these small, sharp, pointy pieces. He grabbed onto the beehive with his hands, ignoring the bees covering his body like clothing. He then slowly climbed down the tree.
The massive body wrapped around the tree trunk and would unconsciously crush many bees. The bees’ corpses would then fall off in bunches like falling rain.
Bai Qingqing patted off the bees’ corpses on her head and squinted as she looked up. “Curtis! How are you? All the children have been found!”
Three small leopard cubs were laid on the same branch, no longer as energetic as usual. They lay limply on the tree branch that had enough space for them to roll, occasionally licking their swollen paws.
Seeing the state they were in, Bai Qingqing’s heart ached badly. She grabbed a leopard paw and blew on it, asking with a gentle voice, “Does it hurt?”
“I’m sorry.” Muir stood at the side, feeling upset.
Bai Qingqing said, “It’s not your fault. Accidents are inevitable.”
Muir looked at her with gratitude, and, at the same time, he felt increasingly guilty. He had failed to take good care of them.
After this incident, Muir understood how frail females and children were. He should have checked out the location first and eliminated or averted the sources of danger when they first arrived. This wouldn’t have happened then.
When Parker brought Bai Qingqing over back then, that was what he did. These were fine details that beastmen would only learn after they become mates with females.
Buzzing sounds rang out from above them, and all of them looked up. Turned out that it was Curtis wearing a coat of bees and dragging along a group of them like a black fog, coming down toward them.
Afraid that the bees would discover the group below him, Curtis came to a stop.
Muir immediately said, “Let’s go back first.”
Bai Qingqing looked worriedly at the black group above him and agreed to Muir’s decision.
Curtis only climbed down the tree after they had left. He used a few big leaves and wrapped up the bees, then dove into the nearest river.
No matter how relentless the bees were, they couldn’t chase into the water. They let the invaders escape just like that.
Muir’s group had just arrived at home when Curtis came back while using a big piece of tree leaf to wrap up the beehive, carrying it above him like an umbrella.
Bai Qingqing turned to look at him. After seeing that he was unscathed, she heaved a sigh of relief and said, “It’s great that you are fine. Hmm? What are you holding?”
The leopard cubs, laying on the ground like corpses, didn’t move when they heard this. However, their eyes turned curiously toward Curtis and their noses twitched. Then, all of them jumped up energetically.
Howl howl howl!
Bai Qingqing was stunned by this stark change and immediately understood the thing that was wrapped up in the leaf. Her eyes lit up as well.
