“You guys went overboard.” Bai Qingqing flicked the leopard cubs’ noses in amusement. “You didn’t even let them eat a single prey.”
“Howl~” The leopard cubs feigned aggrievement, but their tails wagged excitedly, sending water droplets flying everywhere.
There were several dead animals on the ground. They had been caught by either the little snakes or the leopard cubs, but they hadn’t had enough time to get to eat them. After resting for a while, the little snakes climbed over with great effort, driven by their hunger, picking up the loot.
The little snakes who had slower reactions could only hunt by themselves again. This caused them to feel the importance of filling their stomachs and maintaining their stamina. This lesson wasn’t for naught.
The next day, Bai Qingqing brought the little snakes and the leopard cubs to have another round of drills in the courtyard.
This time around, the little snakes had gained experience and could finally eat some food under the cubs’ malicious obstruction.
Moreover, the little snakes would also constantly look for opportunities to launch sneak attacks at the cubs. The miraculous thing was that, although the cubs looked as if they were having a difficult time avoiding the snakes, they were never bitten.
Gradually, the cubs’ fear toward snakes became fainter. When they were attacked by the little snakes, it became easier and easier for them to dodge. Their exaggerated movements no longer seemed as if they were in a sorry state.
After the prey they had been keeping were all fed, Curtis’s patience wore out. He got a bag, grabbed the sleepy little snakes, and stuffed them in.
Bai Qingqing was surprised and subconsciously stood up. She took in a deep breath and wanted to say something, but regained her calmness before speaking.
“Are you sending them off today?” Bai Qingqing heard herself say this. She had intentionally controlled her voice to sound calm, but it still gave off a hint of panic.
Curtis placed all the little snakes into the bag and raised his head to see that his mate’s gaze was still fixed on the bag. His heart ached for her.
He walked over to her side and rubbed her head. “It’s not raining today, do you want to go?”
Bai Qingqing opened her mouth and almost agreed. But her eyes lowered and her reluctant gaze landed on the little snakes who were feeling at a loss and had their heads raised to look at her. She said softly, “No. I’ll wait for you at home.”
“Alright,” Curtis replied.
Bai Qingqing put her hand into the bag and stroked them gently, saying extremely softly, “Take care of yourself in the future… Don’t come back anymore.”
The little snakes seemed to be in a daze, but none of them seemed pained. They just felt a little unwilling to part. After all, they had been nurtured lovingly till now. If Bai Qingqing had ignored them from the very beginning, they might not even feel this unwillingness to part.
After drawing her hand back, Bai Qingqing took in a deep breath and said, as if going all out, “Go on.”
Curtis didn’t hesitate and immediately turned to leave. Bai Qingqing only hesitated for a second, then Curtis and the little snakes disappeared when she opened her eyes again.
“Curtis!” Hold on!
Bai Qingqing had made preparations for over a month and thought that she had completely accepted it. However, when the moment came, she still wavered. She stood up and gave chase to the door, using all of her strength to him.
Curtis was still in the tribe now. They might still be able to make it if she were to get Parker or Muir to chase after him. This thought caused Bai Qingqing to struggle even more. She closed her eyes tightly, forcing herself to not think about anything.
Winston saw from outside that Curtis had gone out with a bag and guessed what happened. He immediately returned to the bedroom, and what he saw was his mate, who had her eyes closed and was crying.
Winston’s calm voice woke her up and she opened her eyes, pouncing into his broad chest, hugging his waist.
Closing her eyes, hot tears flowed down her cheeks. They moistened the male’s firm tanned skin and also burned Winston’s heart.
