Bai Qingqing tried her best to maintain her gaze on Winston’s upper body. She relaxed and smiled. “That’s great.”
Gazing at Bai Qingqing’s smiling face, Winston’s heart raced wildly.
He stared at her dazedly, as though nothing else existed around them. All he could see was the beautiful female before him.
“You’re so beautiful…” Winston couldn’t resist saying that out loud. Perhaps he didn’t even realize what he was saying.
It was always nice to be complimented by someone of the opposite sex, especially if that person was someone so powerful. In the eyes of the other females, perhaps Winston was ugly, ferocious, unreasonable. But in Bai Qingqing’s eyes, she saw someone full of charisma and masculine charm. In any case, she didn’t at all find him ugly.
Hence, Bai Qingqing’s face flushed very quickly. Her body moved in embarrassment. “Thank you for the compliment.”
It was only then that Winston realized what he had just said. His tanned face turned awkward.
“Ssss—” Curtis held Bai Qingqing tightly in his arms, his gaze fixed intently upon Winston.
Winston instantly retreated two steps and said, “I’ll go back to the city now.”
Bai Qingqing waved at him. “Goodbye.”
After the white tiger disappeared from sight, Curtis asked in a dark tone, “You like him?”
“Who? Winston?” Bai Qingqing rolled her eyes at Curtis. “How can I possibly like someone I don’t even know all that well?”
Bai Qingqing had to admit that she felt a little nervous facing Winston, but that was more of an admiration of a handsome man. Winston’s aura was too strong. Any girl would be nervous in his presence, alright?
“But you looked shy just now.” Parker had transformed into a human since god-knows-when. A sense of reprimand and a hint of aggrievedness could be seen in his expression.
Bai Qingqing shrieked loudly. Her face was even more flushed now, and she was caught between laughter and tears. “This is normal, alright? When someone confessed to me in the past, I felt embarrassed. But I didn’t accept any of them.”
Even when the plainest guy in her class wrote her a love letter, she would feel very shy, before rejecting him in a serious manner.
Bai Qingqing was exasperated. With Curtis and Parker questioning her as though she had committed adultery, she really wished she could dig a hole and hide in it.
Curtis glanced coldly at her. “That’d better be the case.”
Bai Qingqing shivered under his gaze. Shaking his tail, Curtis slithered back with Bai Qingqing lying her head on his shoulders and gazing at Parker, who was following behind.
Curtis is so aggressive toward my suitors. Isn’t Parker afraid? This fellow sure isn’t afraid of death.
“Let’s hurry back home, lest the short-winged birds are eaten by the wild beasts,” Parker said.
“Mm.” Bai Qingqing responded as she raised her head to look at the skies.
A black eagle perched on a tree branch screeched. “Screech—”
Bai Qingqing flashed it a smile. That’s Muir, indeed. That’s how he sounds.
Bai Qingqing suddenly understood something—no wonder Muir had never appeared before her—he was fearful of Curtis, probably. After all, Curtis nearly poisoned him to death, and he even snatched her away from Curtis. These two were sworn-enemies.
If he dared to appear before her, Curtis would probably pounce on him in a second.
The three of them went back to their original spot. Thankfully, their stuff was still intact. That bound short-winged bird even attracted another short-winged bird with feathers more vibrant and colorful than hers. Clearly, this was a male bird.
Upon seeing that it was a male bird, Parker was about to pounce upon and kill it, when Bai Qingqing hurriedly stopped him. “Spare him!”
“Roar!” Parker loosened his bite on the male bird at the crucial moment, then transformed into a human and tied its wings up with vines as well.
