Chapter 446: Curtis Is Here (3)
The large banyan tree in the peacock village had dense foliage that blocked out the sun; as there were few plants, the lighting remained very bright, and the amount of sunlight was just right.
As it was the heavy rainy season now, it was the peak season for the females of the peacock tribe to go into heat. Peacocks with their wings spread open could be seen everywhere. One could even vaguely smell the scent of love and reproduction in the air.
Three leopard cubs were playing on the clean ground when they saw their mother, at which point they uncontrollably dashed towards her.
Roar! Roar! Roar!
Parker said happily, “They can roar like big leopards now.”
Bai Qingqing swung her legs to indicate for Curtis to set her down. She then squatted down to welcome them.
“Babies, did you miss Mommy?”
The leopard cubs roared as though they were replying to her question.
Eldest and Second, who had greater strength, rubbed against their mother’s arm vigorously. The slower Third didn’t get to crawl up his mother’s arm, so he had no choice but to rub his back against his mother’s calf vigorously as he roared.
Curtis pointed a finger at the fur on Third’s nape and asked, “That’s them?”
“Mm.” Bai Qingqing felt joyful as she watched Curtis nod his head.
Curtis glanced at Parker and gave a rare compliment. “Not bad, they’re very strong.”
Parker instantly revealed a broad grin and gleefully said, “Of course, they’re my cubs.”
Bluepool, who had been trailing after them, finally arrived. His eyes sparkled upon sighting the river and, with the straightening of his fishtail, he leaped into the water.
He hadn’t expected the river to be so shallow though, so his body ended up slamming heavily against the riverbed. He had difficulty breathing in the murky water as mud entered his gills.
Curtis surveyed his surroundings before commenting, “This place isn’t too bad.”
“Really?” Bai Qingqing pouted and glumly said, “But I don’t like it here, let’s leave right away.”
“Be good and stay here for a while.”
Curtis’s lips were arched lightly, yet his eyes were icy. “I’m going to take care of some matters. I’ll be back soon.”
“What is it?”
“It’s time to put an end to my vengeance with the merfolk tribe.”
Curtis caressed Bai Qingqing’s head reassuringly, before transforming into a snake and slithering towards the sea.
Bai Qingqing stared dazedly at his back view. Bluepool’s head had bobbed up from the water surface by then.
“What is he going to do?” the confused Bai Qingqing asked Parker.
Parker replied, “I told him everything just now. Now that the merfolk found out it was Curtis who stole Jean, they won’t let it rest just like that. Curtis has to go and settle the problem.”
But Bluepool didn’t think so. Having seen how Curtis had unleashed his rage in the sea earlier, he felt that his way of resolving the matter was to vent his anger.
He was simply furious at the merfolk tribe for harming Bai Qingqing.
“Bluepool?” Bai Qingqing looked towards him worriedly.
Bluepool revealed a melancholic smile. “From the moment I betrayed my tribe’s female to help you, I’ve extracted myself from within. Their matters no longer have anything to do with me.”
Bai Qingqing had no idea what to say. Just then, her little cubs started asking her for food. She walked behind a shrub and pulled down her clothes to feed them.
Parker stood next to Bai Qingqing to shield her, and also to help her keep a lookout.
In the sea, air bubbles surged as strands of blood drifted like silk in the water, drenching this part of the sea with the color of blood.
The shoal of fishes that Bai Qingqing had previously felt resembled zombies had now truly turned into zombies. However, this time they were motionless.
In the sea of corpses, a wounded golden-haired merman fled as countless merfolk stayed behind to shield him. Finally, he managed to escape from the attacks of the God of Death in the seas.
The nest had been relocated to ensure Jean’s safety. King swam into the temporary nest and instantly blew a bubble.
