Chapter 1182: Hatching (2)
The snake wasn’t small. It was over 20 centimeters long. Looking at his cold appearance, Bai Qingqing subconsciously backed off a little.
Muir finally returned to his senses. “Ka~”
Turning to meet Bai Qingqing’s gaze, Muir saw the astonishment on his mate’s face as well as how skinny and foolish he looked from the reflection of her eyes.
Bai Qingqing pulled him and backed off a few steps. This was the right thing to do. The little snake didn’t appear to be intimate with either of them when he came out. Instead, he looked at them very warily and then slithered off with his guard up.
“Qingqing, I heard you guys saying that they have broken out from the shell. Have the eagle chicks hatched?” Parker’s cheerful voice rang out from outside. He had just finished speaking when his ending note suddenly stopped. The door curtains and the little snake on the floor also paused as the little snake looked at Parker.
The leopard’s and snake’s gazes met for several seconds, and then Parker let out a fierce roar at the snake. “Roar!” Damn it. This snake looked just as detestable as Curtis.
The little snake instantly backed off a little, arching his body, looking like he was facing a tremendous foe.
The hostility spread and Parker’s face looked increasingly ferocious. He opened his mouth and revealed two slightly longer fangs.
“Parker!” Bai Qingqing called out to him with disapproval, causing him to restrain himself.
The little snake also relaxed a little, but he didn’t let down his guard. When Parker entered, he immediately hid in the corner of the wall.
“Close the curtains.” When Bai Qingqing saw the little snake going everywhere, she added.
“Hmph.” Parker glared angrily at the little snake, then turned to use a few pieces of small rocks to press down the curtains tightly.
During this time, the second egg cracked. Muir suppressed his anxiety and stared at the broken egg hopefully.
“Crack!” Another little snake slithered out.
Muir instantly slouched and looked even skinnier than before, like an old man who was getting closer and closer to death.
After the initial astonishment, Bai Qingqing’s attention turned to Muir and she paid attention to his emotions worryingly.
“Muir…” Bai Qingqing had no idea how she should console him. She couldn’t say a complete sentence, and all sorts of feelings seethed in her heart.
Damn! Curtis, you’re really incredible!
Bai Qingqing didn’t believe that Curtis didn’t know about this. This was her oversight. Curtis had been certain all along that there were snake eggs in her stomach previously, and she shouldn’t have chosen to believe the majority when they said that she was pregnant with eagle eggs.
She had had doubts before.
Muir held on and stood on the spot, not making a sound. His pitch-black eyes stared at the remaining eggs in the nest.
The two of them stood by the nest, watching as the eggs cracked one after another, with little snakes crawling out in succession. In the end, what remained was just a pile of shattered eggshells.
Muir’s countenance was stiff and his eyes were dull without a hint of ripple.
Bai Qingqing raised her head and looked toward him again, saying worriedly, “Muir… It’s fine. It should be a coincidence. Curtis mated with me over four months before we did. None of us expected this.”
Although she was certain that Curtis had done this intentionally, she mustn’t tell Muir this. She didn’t wish for there to be a conflict between them again.
Muir’s wing around Bai Qingqing tightened and he lowered his head to rub against her face. He then let her go and took big strides with his tough claws, heading out.
This was a great humiliation. He was going to find Curtis and fight him to the death!
“Where are you going?” Bai Qingqing asked in a surprised tone, quickly chasing after him.
Parker didn’t feel as upset as the two of them. He looked at the snakes hissing everywhere in the room and, for some reason, felt a sharp pain on his face.
If Parker had been to the modern world before, he’d understand that this feeling was “getting a slap in the face”.
