This was the first time An’an was drinking soup. The salt and fresh taste made her stunned for the slightest moment, then a faint hint of surprise flashed in her gray and blurry eyes.
Bai Qingqing continued to feed her, and Curtis started to feel a little unhappy about it. He asked, “You’re full?”
“En, en,” Bai Qingqing replied half-heartedly, then fed An’an the soup excitedly.
An’an clearly liked the taste of soup a lot, and she wolfed it down. The soup dripped down to her chin, but she continued to lick it.
When Bai Qingqing started to have milk, An’an couldn’t eat anymore. Her stomach was filled with soup.
Bai Qingqing was on the brink of tears, and she could only squeeze out the milk and let the leopard cubs drink it.
After sleeping and having a full meal, Bai Qingqing felt revived. Curtis also had a big meal and was laying on the bedroom’s cool slab stone to digest the food.
After coaxing An’an to sleep, Bai Qingqing walked over to his side and said softly, “Keep an eye on An’an. I’ll go out and take a walk, alright?”
“Ssss~” Curtis replied unwillingly.
Saint Zachary shouldn’t let them off easily. After Parker and Winston came back, they’d probably bring the scorpion tribe behind them. It was better to inform the tribal head about this.
Bai Qingqing brought the leopard cubs out while holding onto a heavy animal skin parasol. Although it was heavy, it was very good for shielding from the sun and heat. Hiding under the parasol was about the same as hiding under a tree’s shade.
On the way to the tribal head’s place, they’d pass by the iron-smelting room. Bai Qingqing went in to take a look when she passed by. It was extremely busy and hot inside, and when she reached the door, she felt a heatwave gushing toward her.
Thankfully, the ventilation in the room was good and the smell of coal wasn’t strong.
Bai Qingqing coughed, then turned to head to the iron-smelting room.
There were now a few iron-smelting rooms, and the clanking sounds rang out everywhere. Bai Qingqing took a rough look and saw a tremendous amount of iron parts.
A golden-haired young male next to the fire basin raised his head, showing a face that bore a close resemblance to Parker. When he saw Bai Qingqing’s appearance, he smiled, revealing his white teeth. “Why have you come?”
Bai Qingqing was stunned for a moment, and it was a while before she remembered that this was Parker’s brother. She smiled, feeling embarrassed.
“I came to see how everyone is doing with the weapons.”
Parker’s brother smiled proudly and said, “We forged several ten sets of armor based on Parker’s. Mine is done as well, and I’m working on refining it.”
Bai Qingqing smiled and said, “Congratulations.”
At the thought of Parker’s armor, Bai Qingqing was elated.
That was right. The scorpion beastmen’s poisonous spike could pierce through Parker and Winston’s skin and flesh, but they couldn’t pierce through Curtis’s body easily. This was because the two of them didn’t have a tough protective layer.
With this armor, even blades wouldn’t be able to slash through it, let alone those fine poisonous spikes.
The more Bai Qingqing thought about this, the brighter her smile. She suddenly heard the male in front of her saying in an anxious tone, “Don’t smile at me. My heart is beating out of control. Or do you have the intention to accept me?”
Bai Qingqing was shocked by his words and covered her mouth, shaking her head anxiously. “No, no, no. Don’t misunderstand. I’ll be leaving right away.”
After saying that, she left as if fleeing.
The male who was left behind heaved a sigh of relief. He had just found a suitable female to woo. If Bai Qingqing were to change her mind, he wouldn’t know what to do.
The male returned to the iron-smelting room to his work. Bai Qingqing hurried to the tree where the tribal head lived and met him as he was about to head out.
When the tiger tribal head saw Bai Qingqing, he was a little surprised. He then smiled and said, “You guys are back.”
Bai Qingqing had no time to regulate her breathing and went straight to the point. “Tribal head, please get the beastmen in the village to hasten on the progress of forging weapons.”
