406 Her New Admirer?
On the other hand, she yearned to take care of Third more. If he received sufficient nutrition when he was little, he would definitely grow well.
In any case, she had sufficient breast milk and wasn't worried about the issue of feeding her babies.
When Parker came back, his heart brimmed with sweetness upon seeing his mate play merrily with his little ones.
Bai Qingqing looked towards the small cave. "So fast? Move aside. You're blocking the light."
Parker smiled and shifted a rock away, and the cave instantly became bright. The glaring light made Bai Qingqing narrow her eyes.
The little cubs, who had toned down their restlessness upon seeing Parker, dug their front paws into the ground and climbed onto their mother.
"You're hungry again?" Bai Qingqing scooped up Third, pulled down her shoulder straps, and fed him first.
Parker came back with all the things they needed at one go. The firewood he brought back was half-wet, and it took him quite some effort before he managed to light it. Although he did manage to start a fire, it was extremely smoky.
"Qingqing, come over and warm yourself up by the fire." Parker twisted his head, and upon seeing the two little cubs hanging by Bai Qingqing's chest, his lips involuntarily curled up into a silly grin.
The blushing Bai Qingqing blocked part of her chest with her cubs and said, "Nah. It's so smoky over there. It's more comfortable leaning against the wall."
"We can only eat roast meat today," Parker said. He had captured a deer on the way back and tossed it outside the cave.
Seeing that the stone wall was blackened, she turned around and looked at her shoulders, only to see that her snow-white dress had turned black as well.
However, she didn't really mind it and merely rubbed at it haphazardly.
Bai Qingqing realized that ever since she transmigrated here, her fondness for cleanliness had dwindled. In the past, if her clothes landed in this state, her mom would certainly have nagged her for an entire night.
As there wasn't enough firewood, Parker only roasted a large portion of meat for her. After she finished eating, he transformed into a leopard and crouched at the entrance of the cave as he devoured the prey.
Bai Qingqing would cast a glance over at him from time to time. By now, she was somewhat used to the fact that males ate their meat raw here.
This time, having drunk their fill, the leopard cubs fell asleep. Bai Qingqing held them in her arms and didn't dare to move. As time went by, she started feeling drowsy as well.
After tidying up the innermost area of the cave, Parker carried her inside together with the animal skin.
Bai Qingqing opened her fatigued eyelids and glanced at him.
Parker's gentle pats on her chest had a hypnotizing effect. "Go ahead and sleep, I'll guard by your side."
With him around, Bai Qingqing fell into slumber with her heart put to ease.
Parker stared intently at Bai Qingqing's face and didn't tire of it regardless of how long he looked.
Now that he had finally found her, he swore never to part with her again. It didn't seem like a bad idea for them to carry on living like this with that feral beast.
Parker subconsciously revealed a smile. Suddenly, his ears shook, and he looked out the cave.
A wet peacock had flown to the cave. With his fur in a wet state, even a drenched chicken was better looking than him.
Roar! Roar! Parker revealed his teeth and let out a low growl from his throat.
The peacock instantly transformed into a human and peered into the cave.
"Where's Bai Qingqing? Are you taking her away?" Alva looked panicked. He knew he shouldn't have let this leopard in. Now, this leopard was going to bring Bai Qingqing away.
He had no idea where Muir had gone. Wasn't he anxious?
Parker analyzed his opponent's ability and relaxed. He sized the other party up with a picky expression. "And who are you? A new admirer of my Qingqing?"
Alva didn't bother to hide it. Instead, he said straightforwardly, "That's right. I like Bai Qingqing. Let her stay on in my village. It's not safe here."
Parker's countenance changed instantly. He revealed his teeth, straightened his long limbs, and pounced over in two to three steps.
