Chapter 1136: New Life (1)
Watching Bai Qingqing eating the food he cooked seriously, Muir felt an indescribable sense of satisfaction. After she was done with the food, he immediately pa.s.sed her a piece of animal skin.
He remembered that she liked cleanliness a lot. After eating, she must wipe her mouth clean.
Bai Qingqing extended her hand toward him as he expected, but Muir didn’t pa.s.s it to her. He moved the animal skin directly to Bai Qingqing’s lips and gently wiped her mouth.
Bai Qingqing’s face heated up and she s.n.a.t.c.hed the animal skin to wipe her mouth herself. “I’ll do it myself.”
Muir was disappointed, but he didn’t show it on his face. He nodded and replied before taking away the bowl and chopsticks.
Curtis and Winston were sleeping, the leopard cubs were hidden deeply, and An’an and Parker weren’t at home either. Only Bai Qingqing and Muir were awake. It felt too quiet.
Bai Qingqing put her index fingers together and twirled a few rounds before finding a topic. “Erm… Let’s go and check out the tree bark.”
“Alright.” Muir instantly got up, his reaction so fast that it appeared a little unnatural. His focus was clearly constantly on her.
Bai Qingqing pretended not to see Muir’s embarra.s.sing state. She didn’t wait for him and left the bedroom first after putting on her gra.s.s slippers.
The weather had been clear for two days and the temperature became higher. The sun made it unbearable for females.
Bai Qingqing quickly walked to the shade of a tree, picking up a stick from the side and poking the tree bark that had been soaked in the water for so long that it had turned soft and was now a milky-white color.
“Yesterday… I’m sorry.” Muir stood behind her, the sunlight casting a dark shadow on the ground next to him.
Bai Qingqing knew that he was referring to the matter about the leopard cubs. She immediately said, “It’s not your fault. Moreover, this isn’t something bad either. Male children need to be put through hards.h.i.+ps. If they don’t experience hards.h.i.+ps when they are young, they’ll only be able to eat gra.s.s when they get older.”
Muir couldn’t help but smile, no longer feeling burdened by this matter after she consoled him. He subconsciously said his heartfelt thoughts, “You’re really good.”
Bai Qingqing’s face instantly heated up, and she lowered her head to look at her reflection in the water, poking occasionally at the tree bark.
“It’s a little boring. Why don’t we find something to do?” Bai Qingqing heard herself saying this, but before Muir reacted, she was the first one to think lewdly. Her reddened face flushed up even more, and she had a strong urge to swallow back what she had said.
No, no, no, there was no way that Muir would know what she was thinking. He wouldn’t think lewdly about this.
However, Muir had heard the conversation between Curtis and herself, and thus his train of thoughts went in a lewd direction at the same time as Bai Qingqing’s. His breathing instantly halted and he stiffened.
However, he thought of the same thing as Bai Qingqing, thinking that he had only thought of this because he had always been looking forward to it.
Forcing himself to calm down, Muir tried his best to speak in a normal tone, “Alright. What do you want to do?”
Bai Qingqing exhaled, thought about it for a moment, then said, “Let’s go look for trees that are suitable to be made into paper.”
Muir turned to head into the kitchen, removing his battered animal skin skirt, then came out after turning into his beast form.
Bai Qingqing washed her hands and then docilely waited for him in the shade. When she saw Muir coming out, she immediately put on her signature smile.
Muir’s footsteps paused for an instant, his pupils reflecting his beloved female. He felt that life was really tranquil and good.
A life like this was not lived in vain.
“Wow! The wind is no longer cold now! It feels so comfortable!” Bai Qingqing extended her arms and enjoyed the wind’s embrace. This was the first time she had sat on Muir’s back for the sake of having fun. She suddenly realized that she had missed a lot of wondering experiences.
“I’m really envious of you. If I can choose, I also want to be an eagle beastman in my next life. I’ll be able to fly freely in the air,” Bai Qingqing squinted and said enviously.
