Bai Qingqing only felt that it was brutal when she heard this. She asked worriedly, “How many casualties do we have?”
“Only several tens,” Parker said, wearing a hint of grief and mostly admiration on his face. “Dying in a battle to protect the village is the greatest glory for beastmen. There’ll be no regrets!”
Bai Qingqing sighed in relief. This number was still within an acceptable range for her.
The beastmen quickly removed their armor, and their bodies instantly felt lighter. In addition to their excited emotions, they felt as if they were going to fly.
The beastmen who had stayed behind to protect the village had long prepared food for everyone. Upon Winston’s command, all the food was brought over, and a campfire banquet was held under the sunlight.
The atmosphere became a lively celebration. Bai Qingqing took Parker’s hand and said happily, “Let’s go over. Choose that shaded spot!”
Females couldn’t be exposed to the sun, so many campfires were under the shade of trees. However, the closer they were to sunlight, the hotter it would be. Therefore, all the females would fight to sit on the very sides.
Bai Qingqing felt anxious and tugged Parker as she ran over.
Parker smiled. He carried her up horizontally and then started to run very quickly. His legs moved so quickly that they were like the wheels of a unicycle, with only a fan-shaped figure still visible, not losing out to the speed of ordinary beastman in their beast form.
Bai Qingqing’s hair was blown up by the wind, blowing into Parker’s face and blocking his vision.
Parker shook his head while he ran. Bai Qingqing saw that she was about to knock into a tree, let out a scream, then quickly turned her head to brush off her hair from Parker’s face.
Parker narrowly missed the big tree and took a spot next to a campfire of an extremely good spot. The two of them exchanged a glance and burst out laughing.
“Quickly bring An’an over, as well as the leopard cubs. They should be near the small river in the backyard.” Bai Qingqing only managed to hold back her laughter after a while, then ordered Parker to run errands without standing on ceremony.
Parker planted a quick kiss on her face, then, as she glared at him angrily, he rapidly turned to run off.
Bai Qingqing wiped her face, but her expression was joyful. It was truly a good day. The males were happy over having won a battle while Bai Qingqing was happy over having an assurance for the future.
If the village couldn’t stand up against the scorpion tribe, then she could only leave the village and live a life roaming and fleeing.
Parker hadn’t come back, but Winston, who had removed his armor, first came to Bai Qingqing’s side. He even brought along a big fat prey, putting it up on the campfire.
Bai Qingqing smiled when she saw him, calling him to sit by her side. “It’s been tough on you.”
Winston’s silver eyes were filled with strong feelings. With this one line from Bai Qingqing, there was nothing to fear no matter how dangerous the battlefield was.
“It wasn’t tough. Parker was still complaining about how he wasn’t able to participate in this battle.” Winston wore a faint smile on his face.
It was unknown when this started, but Winston’s inferiority and taciturn had lightened. He no longer just felt confident in battle, but with the relationship with his mate, he also started to let go of himself in front of her.
Bai Qingqing was very pleased with this side of him. “You should smile more. Do you know that the reason you hadn’t been able to get yourself a mate was that you don’t know how to smile? If you were like this in the past, the females would all be fighting for you.”
Bai Qingqing pursed her lips and smiled.
Winston shook his head and held onto her small, soft, and slender hand tightly. The hot temperature of his skin was like his intense feelings, channeling into Bai Qingqing’s senses.
“I don’t want to. If that were to happen, I wouldn’t have the right to stay by your side when you appeared.”
The spot where their skin came into contact was quickly covered in a layer of sweat, but Bai Qingqing couldn’t bear to draw her hand away. She couldn’t bear to reject Winston’s scorching feelings.
