Chapter 847: Seeking Helpers

An eagle beastman instantly transformed into a human and explained, “We can’t fly into the desert. It’s too hot, our feathers will burn under the heat.”
Glancing at their black feathers, Bai Qingqing was instantly enlightened.
That must be because black was the color that absorbed most heat.
A look of pity surfaced Curtis’s eyes, who then pointed a finger at a peacock watching the fun while perched on a tree branch.
Alva flapped his wings, and out fell several pretty feathers.
Bai Qingqing admired the peacock’s glamorous appearance for a moment, then waved at him with a smile.
Gazing at her vibrant beaming face, Alva couldn’t help but fall into a daze.
Only when he suddenly felt a pair of icy eyes riveted upon him, causing his blood to turn cold from head to toe, that he snapped back to his senses.
Shifting his gaze away, he sighed with emotion internally: Bai Qingqing must be the most beautiful female in the world!
Such a beautiful female wasn’t someone a beastman like him could covet. He should just be content to stay next to Molly; him meeting her made leaving his village worthwhile.
“Seems like you’re the only one who knows the way in this village.” Bai Qingqing clasped her hands together and pleaded. “Please help us.”
Alva flew into the tree hole he used to occupy and then came out after putting on a skirt. He replied, “But I need to take care of Molly.”
The tribal head instantly said, “Molly is my female cub. I’ll take care of her.”
Alva looked towards Molly’s tree hole and hesitated for quite a while, before finally nodding. “Alright! When are we setting off? I’ll make some preparations.”
He had to prepare more food at home. Thinking the fruits on the fruit tree facing the sun should have ripened, he decided to pick a bunch for Molly before leaving.
“Tomorrow,” replied Bai Qingqing.
“So fast?” Alva’s brows drooped. That wouldn’t be enough time. By the time he came back, the fruits would likely have rotted.
Curtis then pointed at five strong beastmen among the volunteers. Without bothering to exchange pleasantries with anyone, he dragged Bai Qingqing with him and prepared to leave.
As she walked, Bai Qingqing greeted those five male beastmen. “Thanks.”
Curtis circled his arm around her waist, lifted her, and picked up his pace.
When they got home, seeing that Curtis’s face was still sullen, she poked his arm.
“Eh, why did you ask those beastmen to come along? There are merely five of them. If a fight ensues, we’ll likely still be outnumbered.”
“To carry our luggage.” Curtis said with an icy face, “Your food, clothes, cutlery, and also water.”
Heart brimming with sweetness, Bai Qingqing tilted her head and, glancing at his countenance, said with a smile, “It’s okay, I’m not afraid of hardship. We can dispense with all the unnecessary items. We don’t need the help of those beastmen.”
With a sullen expression on his face, Curtis somehow looked adorable. He himself was the one who found those males, the very cause of his anger right now, hahaha…
“Your safety is what matters most.” Curtis said, “But you are not to speak a single word to them! You’re too softhearted.”
Bai Qingqing shrugged. “Alright, I’ll do as you say.”
After Parker taught the cubs a lesson, he came back and, having heard Bai Qingqing’s plan, instantly went off to hunt.
The two males ate to their hearts’ content that night, then prepared several urns of clear water and some roasted smoked meat, packed up the clothes, and also prepared a huge pile of stuff.
Only after staring at the luggage did Bai Qingqing realize they did need a minimum of five helpers to carry everything they were bringing along.
The leopard cubs spun circles around the luggage, seemingly realizing something. After filling their tummies, they didn’t go off to play like they usually did and instead stared eagerly at the adults.
Bai Qingqing caressed their heads one by one and said gently, “I’m going out. The three of you, be good and stay in the village. Don’t practice hunting in the wilderness all day long. Just go to the tribal head’s home to eat meat in the afternoon. You hear me?”
