Screwing Over a Litter of Pups
At night, Parker and Winston dug a very wide pit around the bird’s shelter according to Bai Qingqing’s design. They then placed a thin layer of branches and leaves and scattered some dirt on top.
Snowflakes gradually fell from the sky, perfectly hiding the trap the next day. Now, they just hoped that there wouldn’t be hail.
The cubs didn’t show up for more than ten days, possibly because they were genuinely afraid of the cold.
One night after temperatures just barely rose, Bai Qingqing was asleep when she heard a few vague and muffled thuds.
She tentatively perked up her ears and tried to listen out. She softly asked Parker, “Did you hear anything?”
“If you can hear it, of course I can hear it,” Parker excitedly replied. He got up and said, “I’ll go outside to take a look.”
Bai Qingqing quickly replied, “I’ll come with you.”
Parker pressed on her shoulders to make her sit, then covered her firmly with the blanket. “Don’t move. I’ll be right back.”
Bai Qingqing didn’t resist as she would have to wear many layers of clothes if she got up. “Okay.”
Bai Qingqing stared at the doorway after watching him leave.
Parker returned in no time. Bai Qingqing’s eyes lit up and she immediately asked, “So?”
He laughed heartily, the pent-up anger in his heart finally disappearing. “It’s them. They’ve all fallen into the pit.”
“They’re not hurt, are they?” Bai Qingqing initially just wanted to get back at the children, but now that they had finally been captured, she couldn’t bear to see them come to harm. They were only a few months old, after all.
“We should’ve placed some soft stuff in the pit to cushion their fall.”
“The pit’s not deep. They won’t get hurt.” Parker lifted the blanket and was about to climb into bed. Bai Qingqing breathed a sigh of relief, then pressed down on the blanket so that Parker wouldn’t be able to climb in. “That’s good. Let them out first.”
Parker immediately pulled a long face and crouched at the side firmly. “No. We’ll talk about this tomorrow.”
“What if they freeze to death?” Bai Qingqing wrapped the blanket around herself and sat up. “If you don’t go, I’ll go. What if they die?”
“They won’t.” Parker resignedly pressed her against the nest. “I didn’t go too far. It’s very warm in the pit. They won’t freeze.”
Bai Qingqing stared at Parker doubtfully for a moment before saying, “Okay. I believe you.”
The next day, Bai Qingqing was woken up by the commotion outside. Rosa was hysterically cursing and many beastmen were growling in preparation to fight.
Something had happened.
Bai Qingqing was instantly awake. She lifted the blanket and quickly put on her clothes.
It was foggy outside and the air was cold and humid as the sun had not risen yet. The moment Bai Qingqing walked to the main door, she saw a pair of scary green eyes staring at her through the fog. She was so frightened that she stepped backward.
“Were you woken up by the noise?” Parker asked as he held onto her. His anger caused the animal stripes on his face to look darker.
At that moment, the pups climbed out of the pit one by one. Rosa quickly walked over to help them up, then suddenly pointed at Bai Qingqing and furiously shouted, “How dare you to hurt children. I’m going to see the ape king and make sure he sells you off!”
Bai Qingqing was afraid of beasts—it was an instinctual fear of the strong as the weak one. But when it came to Rosa, she wasn’t scared in the slightest.
“I just dug a pit at my house. What’s that got to do with all of you?” Bai Qingqing asked, pretending to not know a thing. She even blinked at Rosa innocently. “Who knew that your pups would come all the way here to our territory and play? That doesn’t seem to be allowed.”
The white tiger’s whiskers twitched as he stood at the side quietly. He tried his best to keep a straight face.
How is she so cute? Her expressions are too amusing. I want to see her do that again.
