He was still deep in thought when a leopard’s cry rang out not far away.
Winston looked over and saw a leopard biting onto a floating beast and running toward him.
Parker changed into his human form and said, “Hey! Go catch a floating beast as well. I realized that floating beasts have very tender flesh, it should be easy for Qingqing to bite into them. I’ll roast it for her to try it today. We’ll have this for dinner.”
“Roar!” Winston nodded and quickly tracked down a floating beast’s crawling trail and found it hiding in a puddle. He killed it with a bite and dragged it out.
The two of them dragged the floating beasts back to the village.
Bai Qingqing was talking to An’an in her stomach. When she saw they were back, she immediately asked, “What’s the matter with that female just now? Why didn’t she have clothes on? Winston, why did you chase her away?”
It couldn’t be that she had hugged onto his leg that Winston did this to clear his name, right?
She’d feel bad about it.
“She’s Rosa,” Winston said.
Bai Qingqing raised her head abruptly, her face turning pale from surprise. “What?”
“The female from the tiger tribe?” Parker could vaguely remember this female because he detested her too much.
When they first met, he was at a competitive phase of his life. However, he was accused by Rosa to be a male who forced himself on a female. If it wasn’t because his father was a beast king, he’d have been forced to become mates with Rosa.
He was driven out of the City of Beastmen and eventually had the chance to save Bai Qingqing. This caused his dislike for Rosa to become a little fainter.
However, Rosa almost killed Bai Qingqing later on, and Parker hated her to the core.
“Good riddance!” Parker said angrily, not harboring any protective feelings toward her.
Bai Qingqing broke out in a sweat but also felt warm from Parker’s partiality.
Winston took a look at her expression and lowered his head. “I didn’t find her companions, so I got people to bring her back again.”
Bai Qingqing said, “Huh?”
Winston quickly said, “I’ll send her away immediately once I find beastmen from other tribes. If I can’t find her original companions, then I’ll just find a random village to send her away to. I won’t let you feel annoyed by seeing her.”
Bai Qingqing quickly said, “Don’t be anxious. Just do what you have to, as long as she’s sent away.”
Bai Qingqing naturally couldn’t stand Rosa. Hating her was one thing, but she was warier of her vicious mindset. She was afraid that Rosa would hurt her children.
“En.” Winston nodded solemnly.
As Third had received their mother’s praise, both Eldest and Second were jealous. When they heard their father coming back, they finally crawled out of their nest.
They cried out noisily. Parker threw a glance at Winston and then looked at Third.
Third touched his mouth with his paw, then called out weakly.
“What are they talking about? They seem as if they are in a meeting.” Bai Qingqing smiled.
Parker said, “It’s nothing. It’s just that Third brought the comb over and the two of them felt uncomfortable. They said that the comb was given by Winston.”
Bai Qingqing’s eyes opened wide, and her heart sank.
Did Winston hear what she said earlier?
Winston said, “I was in a hurry to go out to check on things, so I passed the comb to the cubs. Is anything the matter?”
Bai Qingqing saw that his attitude was natural as if he hadn’t heard anything. She felt a little more at ease.
“Did you hear my conversation with Curtis?” Bai Qingqing couldn’t feel at ease and asked.
“What conversation?” Winston didn’t wish for her to feel troubled and asked as if he couldn’t understand what was going on.
He’d just take whatever Bai Qingqing gave him. He didn’t need her to be burdened.
