Chapter 1113: The Days in Which the House Husband Isn’t at Home (3)
If it wasn’t because Bai Qingqing and Muir had already become mates, Curtis would have suspected if Muir was intentionally trying to get his Snow killed.
Seeing that Bai Qingqing was fine, Curtis carried her and straightened his body. With a flash of his tail, Muir’s figure disappeared from the sh.o.r.e.
A while later, a “boom” sound rang out in the far distance. Muir smashed onto a tree trunk on the opposite side of the river and spurted out a mouthful of fresh blood. He then landed on the floor and rolled a few times in the mud, completely turned into a muddy color.
Bai Qingqing looked in the direction of the sound, shocked. She saw Muir moving in the far distance and felt a little at ease. Thankfully, he wasn’t smashed to death.
Curtis rubbed his face against Bai Qingqing with lingering fear, using the rainwater to clean her face. He carried her under the roof. “I’ll bring you to change your clothes first.”
What he was saying that he’d be coming back to take care of Muir later.
Bai Qingqing turned her head and looked toward Muir, hoping that he could be more quick-witted and find a place to hide first.
After entering the kitchen, a bitter thick smoke gushed toward them. Both of them paused and turned their heads toward the stove.
Before their vision focused, they first sensed intense fire. When their gaze focused, G.o.d, the wok was filled with fire, looking like a fire basin.
“Wait a moment.” Curtis placed her down and got a bucket of water in a flurry, heading quickly toward the wok.
Before Bai Qingqing could stop him, Curtis had already poured the water at the wok.
A loud sound akin to an explosion erupted in the wok and the fire became even stronger, striking back at Curtis.
Curtis didn’t expect this to happen and was unprepared. He stood on the ground while a small flame brushed past him.
The fire dissipated in an instant, and Curtis’s figure reappeared. Then, a mushroom-like steam cloud immediately rose in the air. It was a majestic sight.
Bai Qingqing was stunned for a while before she found her voice back. “Cur… Curtis? Are you alright?”
The temperature of that flame was very low, and it was very weak. It wouldn’t cause any damage to be brushed by it so quickly. Curtis’s face was still fair as jade, and it was as if the fire that dissipated in an instant had never touched him at all.
Curtis wiped his face and threw a glance at the wok that was half-filled with murky water. He then turned calmly and headed toward Bai Qingqing.
“I’m fine. The fire was extinguished as well.”
Bai Qingqing walked quickly to his side, threw a glance at the wok, and the corner of her lips instantly twitched.
What the h.e.l.l was the thing floating on the surface of the water? If Bai Qingqing hadn’t seen this herself, she wouldn’t have believed that someone could cook vegetables to this state.
However, at the thought of the charred vegetables she saw before she left, Bai Qingqing felt a little thankful. It was also a good thing that she didn’t have to eat that terrifying dish. She should just chew on fried dough twists and jerky later.
Curtis carried her back to the bedroom and forcibly made her lay on the bed. He then returned to continue cooking.
Muir came back with staggering footsteps and entered the kitchen. He immediately paused in his footsteps and stared at Curtis warily.
Curtis’s eyes contracted dangerously. He glanced at the kitchen’s horrible state from the corner of his eyes. Seeing that Muir had suffered from internal injuries and wouldn’t be able to do any work if he were to continue to beat him up. Therefore, he could only bear the fury.
“Clean up the kitchen first.”
After Curtis said that, he started cleaning the place. Hearing that, Muir completely let down his guard and started to work without saying anything.
One hour later, Bai Qingqing, who was laying on her stomach and chewing on fried dough twists, still saw the lunch for today: a bowl of steamed eggs, a big bowl of braised meat, and a small dish of wild vegetables. They looked quite good, completely different from the dish earlier.
