Chapter 1094: Unt.i.tled
It had been two to three months since An’an had shown such initiative. It could be because the scorpion poison’s influence on her was getting increasingly weaker. Bai Qingqing felt very consoled.
Bluepool didn’t seem to notice anything and even asked nonchalantly, “Is that so?” He then followed them to the kitchen.
Muir followed them, and his hard legs made crisp “thud” sounds when he stepped on the floor. It made it hard for others to not notice him.
Since there were things to do at home, Muir naturally wanted to help. This was the first time he was partic.i.p.ating in a family activity, and the blood in his body suddenly started to seethe.
Parker intentionally fell behind and raised a hand to stop him, his gaze calmly sweeping his charred body and his right arm, which he hadn’t dared to exert too much force. Parker said, “There’s no need for you to be here.”
They were considered family now, after all. Muir was a patient, and Parker didn’t wish for him to suffer long-lasting repercussions from his condition. It would be a loss for the family.
Muir’s heart sank, and his dark gaze landed on Parker’s face.
With Qingqing at home, Parker acted without any restraints even after he sensed the pressure coming from Muir. He said without standing on ceremony, “Do you know how to cook?”
Muir was rendered speechless.
He didn’t. But he could learn. However, Parker was clearly not planning on teaching him. Should he go and ask Qingqing?
Muir didn’t dare to do so. Thus, he paused.
Parker raised his brows proudly, then turned and quickly caught up to Bai Qingqing and Bluepool.
Even though it was supposed to be Bai Qingqing’s family giving him a treat, Bluepool didn’t just wait there for the food to be served. He was good in the water and caught a few big, plump, and tender fish. He then blew a bubble to contain An’an, playing with her.
Bai Qingqing and Parker got to work in the kitchen. When the leopard cubs smelled the fishy smell, all of them became extremely agitated and would occasionally steal a bite.
The matters in the village were mostly taken care of. Winston had been worried about Bai Qingqing all this while, and, after taking a bath outside, his heart relaxed when he came back and saw smoke coming from the kitchen.
With such a big fuss going on, Qingqing must have woken up.
Winston was stunned for a moment when he walked into the main hall and saw the back view of the eagle beastman standing at the back door. Did he wake up so quickly? It seemed that they had all underestimated the recovery capabilities of stripeless beasts.
Muir also heard Winston’s footsteps and turned to look at him.
Winston nodded politely with a natural att.i.tude. Muir’s heart throbbed again.
It seemed that Qingqing had already told her mates to accept him while he was deep in slumber. Turned out that he had already been accepted before he had regained his consciousness.
His black-pitched eagle eyes blinked and moistened up, gleaming and emitting two bright light spots.
He walked forward and pa.s.sed by Winston, concealing his shameful appearance.
Winston understood but acted as if he hadn’t seen anything. He didn’t stop and headed straight for the kitchen.
A mature male voice rang out, and Bai Qingqing immediately raised her head, smiling at Winston, who was walking toward her. She said, “You’re back. Good timing. We’re making a big feast. Go out and hunt a small animal. Although it’s supposed to be a fish feast, it should be fine to mix in another type of meat.”
Fishbone soup was boiling in the pot. Parker stirred the soup a little and then said in admiration after hearing that, “Qingqing, you’re really quick-witted.”
Bai Qingqing’s face flushed, then she explained awkwardly, “Cough, this way of doing things exists in the world I came from, to begin with. It’s nothing special.”
She was referring to fishcakes, or in some places, also known as meatloaves. It was a common meat dish.
However, Parker didn’t think the same. He firmly believed that his mate was special, and his gaze when looking at her was filled with love.
