Black’s worries were not unfounded.
Three months later, they could no longer find suitable prey in their territory.
After they ran into the first triceratops, they managed to catch another. This time, it was truly hunted by them.
Their desperate need of food made Black and White take the risk, risking their lives to hunt what was originally not suitable for Kantas cubs to hunt. In the process, White sustained an injury, but Black was thankfully unhurt.
White’s injury was on his teeth. Two knife-like teeth on his left side were broken while he pounced on a triceratops in an attempt to rip out its meat.
“As long as you don’t think it’s ugly, it’s alright~”Compared to Black who always looked anxious, White seemed unperturbed.
While White was recuperating, Black was responsible for finding food. As they had recently hunted another triceratops, they did not lack food for the time being. However, Black still needed to find fruits for their family’s bald baby.
When Black finally left the nest to hunt, White’s tail feathers that were originally raised completely fell.
He paced about in the nest, looking restless. Meng Jiuzhao knew that deep down, White was really bothered: Teeth were a Kantas’ extremely important weapon. Although two teeth did not seem like many, it could lead to major mistakes when hunting. It was nothing if the prey escaped, but if serious, it could even lead to their death.
“Baby, Daddy doesn’t have teeth anymore, what if I can’t get any food for you two in the future?” Louis was already asleep, so White carried his bald cub.
The more he thought, the sadder he felt, “It’s one issue if I can’t hunt, but I eat so much food, and Black will be tired to death! If he hunts alone, what if he dies… What would I do?! I want to die so I wouldn’t become Black’s burden! But if I die, Black will be the only one left!”
Big drops of tears gathered at the bottom of White’s big eyes, dripping “plip plop, plip plop” onto Meng Jiuzhao’s hair that took so much effort to grow out.
Hey– Do you have to be so sad?
Meng Jiuzhao wiped his head with a face full of black lines: You teeth will grow out in the future okay? The new ones would be even better okay? In the world he lived in, there were even dentists specialised in extracting Kantas teeth, and Kantas who wanted to extract their teeth for it to grow sharper, even had to pay a hefty sum, okay?
Ex • Dentist Meng Jiuzhao thought as he reached out into White’s mouth, using his small hands to touch White’s broken teeth: Very good, the new teeth have already started growing out.
The broken teeth were White’s milk teeth. They weren’t very hard compared to those of adult Kantas which were considerably harder to break. The new teeth about to emerge were probably sharp adult teeth.
White had already started approaching adulthood at some point in time.
Although this adolescent bear child did not know anything about it.
Meng Jiuzhao crawled out of White’s mouth, reaching out his hands to wipe his saliva on White’s chest feathers. He did not expect that his hands would get even wetter when trying to dry his hands, thus Meng Jiuzhao looked up, and was stunned.
White’s posture and expression was very funny. His large eyes pooled with tears. He was afraid that closing his mouth would injure the baby inside, so he kept it open causing saliva to hang at his mouth.
“Baby, you scared Daddy, Daddy’s teeth are very sharp, you know?” When he noticed the baby crawl out, he immediately splayed on the ground to facilitate the baby’s exit from his dangerous mouth cavity, not noticing Meng Jiuzhao’s act of wiping his saliva on his chest.
You will be fine! I even checked for you! Raising his head to meet those eyes still wet with tears, Meng Jiuzhao raised his tiny hand, wanting to pat White’s teeth as a show of support. But due to the speed at which White shut his mouth, Meng Jiuzhao’s hand landed on his mouth.
This creature who would grow to be a ferocious beast currently cared deeply for him.
Meng Jiuzhao gently stroked White’s big mouth, and White squinted in enjoyment.
