Chapter 1027: The Irresolute Parker
The two of them nestled together for a while before Parker made up his mind and said, “I’ll leave right away.”
Bai Qingqing looked up at him, her eyes shrouded by a layer of fog.
Parker almost changed his mind, but he was a male with a strong resolution. Only someone with a strong will could become a powerful beastman!
Parker rubbed her head vigorously and then said, “Be good and eat well at home. I’ve set aside all the condiments for cooking. You like to eat wood ears. Every time the rain stops, the fallen tree trunk over there will have a lot of them growing on it. Get Winston to go and pick them.”
Bai Qingqing nodded, took his hand, and shook it to and fro, pleading softly, “There’s no hurry. Can you leave tomorrow? Give me some time for mental preparation.”
Parker’s rationality was all gone after he was held by a small and soft hand. His determination instantly dissolved.
“Alright! I’ll stay for another day.” What strong resolution? What being strong? None of that mattered in front of his mate. Parker changed his mind irresolutely.
Bai Qingqing broke into a wide grin, stuffing An’an into his arms, and then stood up, saying, “Come! Let’s go to the kitchen and whip up a big feast to send you off!”
The two of them ran to the kitchen excitedly, whipping up a table of food. By the time Winston, who had gone out to take care of things, returned, Bai Qingqing told Parker to bring out the red wine that had been sealed up for two years. The entire family sat around the dining table.
Lightning flashed and thunder rolled outside, making it intermittently bright and dark. The sound of the wind and rain filled up the dining hall. The table was filled with piping hot dishes, and the weather outside didn’t affect the lively atmosphere in the room at all.
“Parker will be going out tomorrow. Let’s have a good meal today. We won’t be able to enjoy Parker’s culinary skills for the next few months.” Bai Qingqing picked up a cup of red wine and drank a large mouthful of it.
Uhhh, it felt so good!
After being stored away for two years, the red wine had become much more fragrant. Even Bai Qingqing, who didn’t like to drink alcohol, quite liked it.
She had wanted to take another sip when Curtis pressed down on her arm, throwing an indicative glance toward her stomach.
“You said that one mustn’t drink during pregnancies.”
Curtis took away the porcelain cup from Bai Qingqing’s hand, glancing toward her face that was rapidly turning pink with a hint of adoration in his voice. “It’s already an exception to drink one sip. Don’t drink anymore.”
Bai Qingqing almost forgot about her pregnancy. She stuck out her tongue and then started to stuff food into her mouth.
The rims of the cup still had the lingering fragrance of the female. Curtis flicked out his tongue and accurately touched his lips to the spot Bai Qingqing had drunk from. He finished the red wine in one sip.
How could Parker not notice Curtis’s actions? He had been displeased with how much Curtis restrained Bai Qingqing, to begin with. Seeing how Curtis had taken advantage of the situation for his own benefit, Parker immediately lashed out spitefully.
He let out a cold snort and put his hand on Bai Qingqing’s flat stomach, saying, “Why can’t Qingqing be allowed to drink? You’ve been saying for three months that she has gotten pregnant, but look, Qingqing isn’t showing any reaction at all.”
Bai Qingqing threw him a secret glare.
In fact, she suspected the same. Other than the fact that the horrible period hadn’t visited her all this while, Bai Qingqing’s body didn’t go through any changes at all. She continued to breastfeed and have her meals as usual, not feeling any of the discomforts of pregnancy.
It had been three months. If she had gotten pregnant, her stomach should be bulging a little by now. As she had been eating vegetarian dishes more often recently, her figure was even better than three months ago. Her stomach was flat and didn’t have any excess flab on it.
So what if she wasn’t pregnant? Why did he have to say it out loud? That’d make Curtis look bad. They should just let things slide.
Bai Qingqing then threw Curtis a glance. As expected, his calm and indifferent expression showed signs of cracking up.
