The person who appeared before White was someone he thought he would never see again, Black.
He was in his human form, and a large amount of feathers on his wings were gone. There were also multiple bruises and injuries on his body. However, he was alive.
Unhesitatingly, White pulled Black into his arms!
The family of four hugged as they sobbed, and the cold atmosphere on the cliff was broken by their loud cries, making it seem much livelier.
Losing their teeth and feathers were now the least of their worries, all would be fine as long as they had each other. As long as the whole family was together, it would be fine even if they died. Being separated was the most terrifying part of being alive.
“Why, why has your feathers dropped to such an extent? And also, Baby and Louis are already so dirty, yet you didn’t clean them up.” After a long time, Black held back his tears, sucking back his snot as he looked at White in disgust. “Clean up the tears and mucus on your face, it’s so dirty.”
“Oh–” White roughly wiped his eyes.
“Chirp~ Chirp chirp~” After taking a good look at Black who finally came back, Louis took a careful sniff. After confirming that the person before him was indeed his father, Louis flapped his wings and landed on Black’s neck, chirping happily.
But don’t think that Louis was expressing his joy of Black’s return, in actual fact, he was chirping for only one reason: He was hungry.
When cubs felt a sense of security, they would express their true feelings.
For the past few days, he had been in a state of constant fear, giving all the food he found to his daddy and Meng Jiuzhao, and as a result, he could not eat his full
The two dads who reunited after a long time didn’t have much time to be emotional before they had to carry their two cubs to hunt for food. This also meant that they had to leave this place.
Black paused in his steps, looking at the opposite of the cliff.
That was where their nest was, and now the sudden emergence of a ravine blocked their way home.
“When we grow up, we can fly across this cliff and go home.” White immediately understood Black’s thoughts.
“En!” No longer longing, Black turned around and ran.
The snow on the ground gradually decreased.
“Look! This sheet of ice is black!” One day, White got Black to witness his surprising new discovery. The two who grew up in a field of ice and snow, so soil was a very novel thing.
“…” Black was not as much as a curious child as White. But in the end, he was still a young cub, and in the face of new objects, there would be bound to be some curiosity. Thus, he squatted down, head against White’s as they dug the thin layer of ice beneath their feet with their claws.
“This must be what dad called soil.” Black curiously felt the fresh sensation of soil in his hand, “It’s very soft.”
“And what is this?” White dug down a little more, unearthing a long creature from the soil.
That creature was totally still, and after staring at it for half a day, Black replied hesitantly, “This must be one of the bugs Dad talked about?”
Being unaware was too terrifying, that’s a snake! –Meng Jiuzhao carefully inched away from the poor snake who was brought out of its home in the middle of hibernation.
In the end, their lunch was this “bug” meat.
