Bai Qingqing sighed. “There’s no helping it. Bad things might not be any good, and good things might not necessarily be safe. This is how things are over there.”
There was really no helping it. Modern businessmen were only interested in interests. For the sake of money, they could do anything.
They could even scoop up floating oil from the sewers, process them, then sell them in the market. Eggs could be artificial, and even a large amount of rice was genetically modified.
These were just the raw materials. Processed food was even more terrifying. There could be mercury in intestines, one could get intestinal perforation from eating crayfish, there could be newspapers wrapped up in meat buns…
News of food poisoning was even more common than Chinese cabbage. Bai Qingqing was speechless just at the thought of it. Were these things a human would do?
Curtis hugged her tightly, sharply catching her “over there.” He asked, “Is it that the soil isn’t good? Why not go somewhere further away?”
“Something like that. I didn’t have the capability of leaving. I grew up there, and even if I were given the chance to leave, I couldn’t bear to.” Bai Qingqing smiled. It was all over, so why was she saying these things to Curtis? It’d just reflect negativity.
Curtis turned his head and planted a kiss on her forehead, saying, “I’ll take good care of you. I’ll definitely not let you live that kind of life again.”
Bai Qingqing instantly felt sweet inside, nodding. To her surprise, she noticed that she had regained her strength. She moved, saying happily, “I can move now.”
“I’ll help you down to move around.” Curtis carried her and slid out of the tree hole.
Parker had already buried the fruit and was collecting firewood when she saw Bai Qingqing. He immediately called out, “Qingqing, you can move now?”
Parker jumped off from a tree, carrying along a few branches. He asked, “What do you want to eat? I can stew them together with the chestnuts.”
Bai Qingqing immediately thought of braised chestnut chicken. She said, “Bird.”
Parker received the order and left. Thankfully, he excelled in climbing trees, and catching birds wasn’t difficult for him. It didn’t take long for him to catch a big bird with bright colors. He even managed to get a few eggs.
The bird had beautiful feathers that could compete with that of a peacock’s. Bai Qingqing wanted to pick a few for collection.
She walked a few rounds under Curtis’s help. Her body had recovered completely. She let go of Curtis’s hand and chased after Parker to the waterhole.
Bluepool immediately came out to the water surface, looking at Bai Qingqing in an aggrieved manner. “If you still didn’t come, then I’d go looking for you.”
Bai Qingqing sat by the shore and suggestively looked at him. Then, she looked at the tribal head’s house, asking, “No females came to accompany you?”
Bluepool appeared impatient at the mention of females. “Don’t bring up females in front of me. I’m now put off by them.”
Bai Qingqing covered her mouth, her black pupils darting around.
Aiyah, they couldn’t have bent Bluepool into a gay, could they?
“You’re an exception,” Bluepool then added.
Parker tore open the bird’s stomach, tearing a few pieces of meat to the leopard cubs that had followed behind him. He stared coldly at Bluepool and said, “Are you asking for a fight?”
“Alright. Where should we do it?” Bluepool questioned without any fear. Parker would win on land, and he would win in the water. Even if Parker were to choose the land, it wouldn’t be an honorable victory. If Parker were to choose the water, it’d be good if he could give him a beating.
Parker smiled slyly and threw a glance in the tree hole’s direction. “I’ll call Curtis.”
Bluepool immediately sank into the water, not saying anything.
Molly’s attention was constantly on the waterhole. She came running over when she saw that Bluepool had come out.
“Bai Qingqing,” said Molly, smiling, but her gaze kept darting toward the water.
Bluepool let out a helpless sigh and sank into the bottom of the water.
“Hey! Why did he go down again?” Molly was disappointed.
Bai Qingqing’s heart suddenly ached for Bluepool. His life here was no different than being in jail.
