The one who was pulled inside, Eldest, widened his large watery eyes in an attempt to soften his mommy’s heart with his pitifulness.
That tactic indeed worked on Bai Qingqing, and she very nearly let him go.
But behind Eldest, Second’s shifty little actions, who then stuck his head in, were indeed too punch-worthy, so Bai Qingqing steeled her heart and angrily rebuked them. “Get in here and take care of this mess!”
Second and Third entered the tree hole one after the other. The three leopards stared at the pile of bones that stood even higher than them and simultaneously sighed. With a look of extreme disdain on their faces, they opened their mouths and picked up a bone with their mouth.
As the bones had been left there for several days, there was bound to be germs on them. Satisfied to see them behave obediently, Bai Qingqing waved a hand and softened her tone. “Forget it, Mommy will clean this up for you. The three of you go out and find me a thicker tree leaf. Help Mommy drag the bones out later.”
The leopards instantly spat out the bones from their mouths and spat their saliva, before enthusiastically running outside.
Shortly after, they each brought back a large tree leaf between their jaws.
Bai Qingqing placed the bones on the tree leaves and asked the leopard cubs to drag them to the rubbish pit beside them, then she also cleaned up the entire tree hole.
With the first story of the tree hole and the crazy post-party state of the stone castle as contrast, the upper stories of the tree hole appeared clean and tidy, even though the decorations weren’t yet put back in their proper places.
After taking out all the rubbish, Bai Qingqing set fire to the rubbish pit to burn the rubbish.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t take care of the matters that followed, so she didn’t force herself and simply left it there and waited for Parker and Winston to come back and do it.
One would easily perspire all over on a hot day, and right now, Bai Qingqing was drenched in sweat from head to toe and feeling incredibly hot. Without even taking a breather, she walked in the direction of the waterhole.
She had to quickly cool herself down.
Splash splash splash! The water wheel spun leisurely, slowly bringing clear water to the surface, stirring up the lake that wasn’t very big in size.
Exposed under the daylight, the waterhole glistened like a clear mirror, while the bushes and weeds in the surroundings had bright light spots reflected upon them.
A merman was sprawled on a rock next to the water wheel, his tail slapping the water surface every now and then, a leisurely expression on his handsome face. His blue curly hair was draped on his body, even carrying with it water vapor. Several streaks of water could be seen on his fair skin, adding a touch of seductiveness to his aloof and abstinent aura, attracting peeks from quite a few females.
When Bai Qingqing saw Bluepool from afar, the latter looked over. She waved at him with a smile, lifted her skirt, and ran over.
The moment she ran, the leopard cubs started sprinting maniacally. Bluepool speedily entered the water and blew a large bubble. Just as the cubs were about to run over from the side of the waterhole, Bluepool suddenly leaped out and contained all the cubs with that one bubble, before tossing them into the water.
Behind, Bai Qingqing roared with laughter unkindly.
Bluepool glanced at her, then bounced the cubs-filled bubble with his tail, like a dolphin playing with a ball.
Roar roar roar!
The cubs let out shrieks of protest as they rolled around haphazardly in the bubble.
Pretending he didn’t see that, Bluepool tossed it forward, then backward. Feigning rage, Bai Qingqing glared at him. “Are you done!”
Bluepool chuckled, his inviolable celestial air disappearing entirely, his eyes filled with an impish and teasing look.
“Why were you gone for so long? Has An’an’s poison been neutralized?” Bluepool pressed the bubble into the water, and the leopard cubs’ howls instantly turned muffled.
With the same smile, Bai Qingqing sat down by the waterhole and dipped her feet into the water to test its temperature.
