Chapter 110: Bonfire Banquet
Parker turned his head immediately and glowered at Cortis. “Why are you following us?”
“I’ll go wherever Xiao Bai goes,” Cortis said.
Parker had wanted to say something, but Bai Qingqing pulled his hand and said softly, “He’s my mate.”
The displeased Parker pouted as he pointed at Cortis’s tail and said, “If you don’t wish to be chased out, keep your tail away.”
Bai Qingqing quickly pulled Cortis back into the house. “Go back and put on a skirt. Go!”
“Okay,” Cortis said dotingly.
She pulled Cortis into the bedroom and then turned around. While she was waiting, she took out her mirror and gazed at her reflection. Not bad, the freckles on my face are dense and natural-looking. It’s just that my hair looks a little messy.
Bai Qingqing dug out her comb and combed her hair with much difficulty. It felt so painful that it made her frown. There was no shampoo here, so in order to get rid of the grease, she would scrub her scalp and hair with mud. As a result, her hair easily became frizzy and tangled.
She even thought of cutting it short. From what Bai Qingqing recalled, all the females here seemed to keep their hair short. Was this the reason?
After smoothing out her hair with a comb, Bai Qingqing skilfully weaved one side of her hair into three braids, fixing this hairstyle in place with a hairclip adorned with a small flower made from purple crystal.
This way, her slightly wavy brown hair that went past her shoulders was no longer messy. The little braids in her hair appeared smooth and exquisite, and the purple flowers subtly adorned her hair, making her give off a youthful and adorable vibe.
Bai Qingqing gazed at her reflection with a satisfied smile. When she set down her mirror, she saw Cortis standing before her.
Cortis raised a hand and touched the small flower in Bai Qingqing’s hair. He gazed passionately at Bai Qingqing’s face. “You’re so beautiful.”
Bai Qingqing’s face heated up slowly. She grabbed Cortis’s hand and walked out. “Let’s go, Parker’s waiting for us outside.|
Seeing Bai Qingqing come out, Parker’s eyes lit up too. He reached out and wanted to touch her head. “Your hair looks really nice.”
Bai Qingqing quickly bent over to dodge from his touch. “Don’t touch, you’re going to mess it up.”
Parker restrained his itchy hand, and, staring at the hair clip, asked, “What’s this flower thing? A gift from your admirer in the past?”
“Mm… it’s probably resin. It’s considered a gift, I guess,” Bai Qingqing said. She had bought this for ten-odd yuan two days before she transmigrated.
The bonfire banquet was held in the ape king’s stone castle. This stone castle looked more or less the same as the other three castles, but the grassland in the backyard occupied a very large area, big enough to host several thousand people.
Right now, several females had come with their mates. They came in groups of three to five, each with a female in the center. There were also some little girls, but there were no little boys because males could only transform into humans after coming of age.
This was the first time Bai Qingqing saw so many females after transmigrating. She stared at them curiously for a while. By her rough calculations, including the old ladies and little girls, there were merely two to three hundred females.
“The females didn’t all come?” Bai Qingqing asked, one hand holding Parker and the other hand holding Cortis. The three of them walked on the grassland side by side.
Parker said, “Many females are in heat, and it’s not convenient for them to come out.”
Bai Qingqing subconsciously lowered her head and glanced at her own tummy. She was on her period as well, but it didn’t stop her from attending this gathering!
Before Bai Qingqing could ask, she heard Parker say, “They don’t have a little underwear like you. It’s definitely not convenient for them to come out when they’re in heat.”
“Oh, I see.” Bai Qingqing understood now. No wonder even though the beastmen had a keen sense of smell, no one had ever suspected her of going into heat.
As they were talking, the ape king walked into the grassland with the accompaniment of his wolf beastmen guards.
“The rainy season is coming, so it gets misty at night. Let’s start the bonfire now,” the ape king said with an affable smile.
