Chapter 827: Unforeseen Occurrence (1)
Parker was picking cotton flowers in the village when his heart suddenly palpitated. His body trembled, and he looked up.
He rushed back home with the bag of cotton flowers. When he didn’t see Bai Qingqing at home, he felt a stronger feeling that something was amiss.
He was about to dash out of the stone castle when he noticed from the corner of his eyes that Curtis seemed perfectly fine. He hesitated and didn’t say anything. He just turned to go out.
If Qingqing was in any danger, she could summon Curtis. Since she didn’t, she should be just looking for him.
Parker had two leads. Firstly, there were Bai Qingqing’s footprints. Secondly, there was the spiritual connection that mates shared.
For efficiency, Parker chose the second method. That was why he didn’t notice any lead on his way.
It wasn’t until he didn’t manage to find Bai Qingqing even after leaving the village that he realized that she was in danger.
It’d be delaying time to go back to find leads and to inform Curtis. Parker let out a furious bellow and ran even faster.
When Bai Qingqing was a sufficient distance away, Curtis also noticed that something was amiss.
He searched around and realized that Parker, Bai Qingqing, and An’an were nowhere to be seen.
Curtis was instantly enraged. He uncontrollably turned into his full beast form and charged out of the village.
When the leopard cubs met him, they raised their heads and called out at him.
When Curtis saw them, his body paused for a moment, and his fury eased up a little.
The children were still at home. Snow wouldn’t leave them behind. He could have misunderstood things. Snow didn’t abandon him.
Curtis’s snake figure quickly disappeared from the leopard cubs’ vision. They exchanged a few baffled glances and started talking amongst themselves.
Eldest said: [Did Curtis go out to hunt? Howl—]
Second said: [It should be. Let’s go back home to wait for the food. Howl—]
Third nodded: [Howl!]
They then stood by the stove, planning to have some innards appetizers before their meal. However, they sat there until the sky turned dark but the food still didn’t come.
The three lonely leopard cubs were sad for very long. Then, they each caught food that they liked and had a feast.
When Bai Qingqing woke up, she saw a wooden roof. The air was hot and humid, making her feel sticky all over.
“You’ve woken up.” The little snake’s face appeared in her vision.
Bai Qingqing looked at the little snake’s face and recalled the events that had taken place before she fainted. She sat up angrily.
“Little snake, what are you doing?”
“Call me Curtis.” The little snake placed his hand on her head and patted her gently.
Bai Qingqing was stunned and then broke out in goosebumps from his touch. She slapped off the little snake’s hand.
“What did you say?” Bai Qingqing’s gaze was full of doubt when she looked at the little snake.
What was wrong with this kid? Could he have been possessed by Curtis?
The little snake looked a little displeased, but he quickly restrained himself, looking at her with adoration, and said, “Snow, I’m Curtis.”
“Slap!” Bai Qingqing slapped hard on the little snake’s head, furious.
The little snake tensed up his cold face, staring at Bai Qingqing with his crimson eyes. His expression shared quite a strong resemblance with Curtis.
It was just that he was too young and didn’t have the disposition of a strong beastman like Curtis.
But this was enough to astonish her.
Bai Qingqing looked around and found An’an sleeping by her side. She felt a little more at ease.
She had no idea where this place was and glared at the little snake furiously. She carried An’an and got up, quickly walking out of the wooden house.
The little snake didn’t stop her and just followed quietly behind her.
