Chapter 1114: Confirm the Relations.h.i.+p With Muir Earlier
Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but throw a doubtful glance at Curtis, then at the pale-faced Muir next to him.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t really ask about Muir’s injuries in Curtis’s presence, so she looked at Curtis and asked, “You made this?”
She knew Muir’s culinary skills well. He had even learned how to roast meat from her. After they went separate ways, Muir had hurt his wings and probably didn’t have the chance to learn further.
Therefore, these dishes were probably done by Curtis. However, wasn’t the rate of improvement too fast?
“Things went very smoothly this time around. Have a taste.” Although Curtis didn’t wear many expressions on his face, his eyes were vaguely filled with antic.i.p.ation.
Bai Qingqing picked up the chopsticks and tried a piece of braised meat, nodding as she said, “It tastes good.”
It was definitely no match for Parker’s culinary skills, but it was considered a great delicacy compared to the unidentified mess from earlier. Bai Qingqing was very content.
Curtis let out an unnoticeable sigh and quietly sat by the side, admiring the sight of his mate eating the food that he had prepared for her, feeling extremely satisfied.
After the meal, Muir took the initiative to clean up the dishes and left the bedroom.
With no outsiders in the room, Bai Qingqing placed her hand on her stomach that showed no abnormalities at all. She then asked, “Curtis, am I really pregnant?”
When she read novels in the past, the characters in the novels would easily suffer from miscarriages. She then looked at herself. She had jumped off from the bed, jumped into the water, froze into an ice popsicle… Any one of these had tormented her and taken away half of her life. If she was pregnant, then the babies would be too tough.
After the commotion today, Bai Qingqing finally started to doubt Curtis as well.
Afraid that he might feel that his pride was hurt, she then said, “I might not have gone into heat the other time, so it’s hard to say. If I’m not pregnant, then so be it.”
Curtis would definitely take in Bai Qingqing’s words. Only then did he think about it seriously. He recalled the various hards.h.i.+ps that his mate had been put through previously and then related it to her stomach, which was still flat now, finally feeling a little affirmative.
His blood-red lips curled up into a light arch, looking extremely pretty and flirtatious as if there was a deeper meaning hidden within it. His throat rolled slightly, making a soft sound, “En.”
That was it?
Bai Qingqing instead felt curious to see Curtis so serious. “Didn’t you say that snake beastmen would definitely get their mates pregnant with each mating?”
Curtis smiled and didn’t say anything. He had also told Snow before that if the timing wasn’t right, the babies would stop developing and wait for the most suitable opportunity.
Snake beastmen had the most tenacious vitality, and not only did they find it extremely easy to impregnate women, but they would also use all sorts of methods to survive. If it reached the extent of a miscarriage, the mother would be on the verge of death as well. If Bai Qingqing had really been saved by Muir three years ago while she was pregnant with the baby snakes, it would still be impossible for the babies to be aborted by a bowl of medicine.
This time around, Bai Qingqing had experienced so many hards.h.i.+ps that it was enough to let the baby snakes’ lives feel threatened. As a result, they would stop growing.
However, by the looks of it, it wouldn’t be a case of her carrying a female child then. Female children wouldn’t inherit such abilities to avert disasters. If it was a female child, they’d die very early in the womb.
A series of footsteps along the corridors gradually got closer. Curtis threw a glance in that direction and then recalled Muir’s mocking gaze when he looked at him a few days ago. The arch of his smile also had a hind of mockery to it.
“You can officially become mates with Muir anytime.” After Curtis said that, he noticed that the sound of the footsteps stopped outside the door.
Bai Qingqing didn’t get his explanation. Instead, she heard something astonis.h.i.+ng, and her feelings were instantly turned chaotic, her face flushed up to the color of a red apple.
Bai Qingqing opened her mouth, not saying anything in objection.
Muir was her mate. She should give him fair treatment. They’d have to do the deed sooner or later.
Forget it. Anyway, Curtis had already started urging her, so she should confirm the relations.h.i.+p with Muir earlier.
