Chapter 34: Homeless Beast That Ate Animals Raw
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Holding up Bai Qingqing’s legs, Cortis flicked out its slim, long, and icy-cold tongue to lick away the blood.
“Don’t do this, my feet’s dirty.” Bai Qingqing shrunk her feet back as she couldn’t bear to see him lick her feet.
With her feet lifted off the ground, she had no choice but to prop her hands against the ground to maintain her balance. And she also had to use one hand to hold her skirt down, lest she expose herself.
“Not dirty.” Cortis gently caressed the slim, long, and warm legs in his hands. Although this pair of feet had run all over the place, because the ground was covered with tree leaves and dew, not only did it not get mud on, the bottom of her feet was also fair and clean. With the trace of blood, there was a fragile aesthetic beauty about it.
The speechless Bai Qingqing tensed her calves and protested in silence.
Cortis looked up at Bai Qingqing and suddenly said, “Hm? Why are there fewer black dots on your face now?”
“Mm?” Bai Qingqing hurriedly sat upright, retracting her hands to touch her face.
She couldn’t feel if it was indeed the case, but the slightly protruding eyeliner dots had protruded, and it felt like it would melt off any instant.
She didn’t dare touch it any longer, so she twisted her head away from Cortis.
Cortis set down Bai Qingqing’s legs and pinched Bai Qingqing’s chin with one hand, forcing her to face him.
“Let go of me!” Bai Qingqing glared at him. She tried, but she wasn’t able to shake off the ice-cold hand on her chin. Instead, the terrifying Cortis now held her chin with a more forceful grip, causing her much pain.
Cortis caressed Bai Qingqing’s face with his hands and, with a gentle smudge, saw that the patch of skin now looked fair and flawless. There was amazement in his red eyes. Cortis cupped Bai Qingqing’s face with his large hands and easily wiped away all the black dots on her face.
When he got a proper look at Bai Qingqing’s real appearance, Cortis went into a trance, murmuring, “You’re really good looking...”
So a female was actually this tender. He had merely pinched her chin gently, and it already turned red.
Cortis suddenly felt like his past thirty-five years as a beastman had been lived in vain. He ought to have, like the other homeless beasts, snatched a female early on. Of course, his target would still be Xiao Bai. At most he would just slowly raise the young Xiao Bai until she grew up.
“Hmph!” Bai Qingqing yanked her head away furiously, finally managing to break free of his hold. Yet, she couldn’t relax.
Damn. Since in this world even Sister Feng can join the coterie of beautiful dames, Cortis must be even more fond of me now.
Cortis was snapped out of his trance by Bai Qingqing’s scoff. He resumed a cold expression. “Let’s go home.”
“That’s not my home!” Heart in throat, Bai Qingqing put up a strong resistance.
Cortis ignored her, however, and simply carried her and swam back to the waterfall. On the way back, they ran into a super big white rabbit, so Cortis conveniently curled it up with his tail and took it with him.
When they reached the waterfall, the antelope had vanished completely, and all that was left were traces of blood.
Cortis set Bai Qingqing down on a patch of grass, then brought the live prey in his tail to her.
Bai Qingqing and the white rabbit stared at each other. The rabbit’s size was like that of a wolfhound, and it had long ears and red eyes, its white fur reminding one of a mop.
Is this thing really a rabbit?
“I’m not eating this.” Bai Qingqing’s stomach growled uncooperatively at this moment, giving the huge rabbit before her such a fright that its ears stood up on end.
Cortis knew that Bai Qingqing was putting up a brave front, so with one hand holding the huge rabbit’s neck, he slit it with his sharp nails with the other hand. With a loud shriek, the fur on the huge rabbit’s neck became drenched red by its own blood very quickly.
Cortis brought the rabbit to Bai Qingqing once again. “Eat it.”
Bai Qingqing was speechless.
Was this fellow asking her to eat this thing raw?
Wait a minute. There’s no firewood and no flint in Cortis’s nest. Has he been eating animals raw like that?
Bai Qingqing was shocked by this speculation. All of a sudden, she felt that Cortis was even more terrifying now.
She hadn’t wanted to eat it initially, but just to take a secret jibe at him, Bai Qingqing said resolutely, “I don’t eat raw things.”
Cortis’s red brows furrowed. He thought for a minute, then said to her, “Wait here.”
Just as he was about to leave, something suddenly struck him, so he looked towards Bai Qingqing. “Stop trying to escape. You won’t be able to get out of my territory. Be good and stay here. I’ll be back in a jiff.”
