Chapter 1028: Curtis Felt Awkward
No males could tolerate being doubted on their ability in the area of reproduction. This was even more so for Curtis, a snake beastman. However, Parker’s words poked him where it hurt the most—Snow really didn’t look like she was pregnant.
Back then, when Bai Qingqing was three months into her pregnancy with An’an, she had vomited badly. But now, she seemed completely fine. Parker wasn’t the only one having doubts. Winston, and even Snow, must be doubting him as well.
Curtis’s countenance instantly sank, and he looked at Parker coldly, breaking off a roasted bird wing and placing it into Bai Qingqing’s bowl.
“Have some meat.” Curtis’s voice was suppressed low, just like the low pressure he was giving off.
Parker almost jumped up and fled after seeing his gaze, and he immediately shut up.
Bai Qingqing smiled at Curtis and then docilely lowered her head and ate the wings. She thought in amus.e.m.e.nt,
Curtis was stirred up.
Curtis had always been afraid that she’d have labor difficulties, fearing that the children would grow too big and it’d be hard for her to give birth. However, he gave her a piece of meat, making an exception for her. The contrast of his awkwardness from his appearances was really adorable!
Before she was done eating the wing, Curtis added another fat trotter into her bowl.
Bai Qingqing tried so hard to hold back on her laughter that she almost suffered from internal injuries. She didn’t dare to raise her head and buried her head even lower.
However, her action caused Curtis to misunderstand. Curtis wondered if he had been too strict on Snow’s food intake. It was just a few pieces of meat, but she already found it hard to raise her head.
As Curtis thought this, he added another meat dish into her bowl.
It seemed that he was wrong. Restricting her food wasn’t a solution. He should let Snow eat as she wished.
Upon seeing the pile of meat dishes in her bowl, Bai Qingqing flushed.
This can’t do! I can’t hold it back anymore!
“Cough cough!” Bai Qingqing eventually couldn’t hold it in. The food choked her windpipe and she coughed intensely.
The males instantly panicked, patting her back and feeding her water. Bai Qingqing only got better after a while. Her eyes turned red and her curly lashes were covered in fine water droplets. No one knew if they were from coughing or from holding back her laughter.
“Eat slower. It’s my bad to make you eat less. I won’t restrict you on what you eat anymore in the future,” Curtis said regretfully, patting Bai Qingqing’s back.
Eat less food? Just say that she isn’t pregnant. Curtis really cares about his face,
Parker thought to himself.
Bai Qingqing finally suppressed her laughter, nodded, and said, “I will eat well.”
After they were done with their meals, the sky had turned dark. Bai Qingqing pounced on Parker’s body and slept. Considering how he was going on a long trip tomorrow, Curtis didn’t show any dissatisfaction.
The next day, Parker brought along a small bottle of salt and bade his mate goodbye reluctantly, then headed off.
Muir watched from the tree hole as the leopard ran away. He jumped down and then headed for Harvey’s place.
Since Parker had left, they must be a.s.sured about the scorpion tribe. It was the heavy rainy season, and there were floods everywhere in the forest, so Saint Zachary wouldn’t dare to act recklessly either. This was a good chance for him to recuperate.
Thud thud thud.
The sound of grinding down medicine with a stone mortar rang out rhythmically, and a faint plant fragrance permeated the air. Harvey could guess who had come from his burly figure even without turning his head.
“I thought that you wouldn’t come. Come in and have a seat. I’ll prepare this set of medicine and send it to a female. She was cut by a branch,” Harvey said without turning his head.
Muir didn’t say a word. He entered the room and stood there.
There was only half the number of birds now. These were the batch whose wings had been broken a second time to be given treatment after they had recuperated the first time.
