Chapter 1140: Natural Enemies Would Always Be Natural Enemies
However, while this stream seemed shallow, it was a lot deeper than she imagined. Her arm descended, but it didn’t even reach halfway down to the bottom.
However, this temperature was just right, and it wouldn’t feel cold when taking a bath.
When Bai Qingqing was playing in the water, Muir had his guard up. His sharp gaze was like an X-ray, sweeping through the river currents, not missing out on any existence that could be a hidden source of danger.
With the precedences of the children being stung by bees and Bai Qingqing having a snake slither under her dress when she was taking a bath in the water before, it wouldn’t be overboard to say that Muir was like a startled bird.
“Erm… erm…” Bai Qingqing gave up on scooping the pebbles, then swung off the water on her arm. She embarra.s.sedly looked around and said, “Keep a lookout on the surroundings. Don’t let wild beasts get close to me.”
“En.” Without Bai Qingqing telling him this, he would be constantly on guard as well. After being reminded, he went on full attention, not letting his thoughts go awry.
Bai Qingqing secretly heaved a sigh of relief and quickly removed her coat, running into the water while still having her dress on.
By the time Muir looked toward her, she had already started was.h.i.+ng her body as if nothing had happened.
The pebbles under her feet were smooth, feeling better than she imagined. After Bai Qingqing was done was.h.i.+ng up, she picked up a few colorful pebbles and returned to the sh.o.r.e.
Muir immediately went over and draped her coat on her. Bai Qingqing smiled and dodged it. As her legs felt weak, she almost fell on her b.u.t.t while trying to do so.
Thankfully, Muir’s reaction was fast and he reached out his long arm, bringing her into his embrace.
Bai Qingqing felt very embarra.s.sed and said with a flushed face, “I won’t wear it for now. I’m not cold. I’ll put it on after I’m dry.”
Muir was very obedient, but he wasn’t willing to give in when it concerned her body. The temperature now wasn’t comparable to the warm season, and one would cool down very quickly under the shade of a tree. After hesitating for a moment, he eventually still draped the coat onto her.
“If the coat gets wet, we can just dry it in the sun after we get back. If you get sick, you won’t recover from just getting some sun,” Muir said with a solemn face.
Can’t recover from getting some sun… It’s not as if I’m clothing.
Bai Qingqing threw him an amused glance. “Alright, then. Let’s go back now.”
After they returned to the stone castle, before they even got in, Muir sensed a strong pressure. He instantly understood that Curtis had woken up.
Sensing that he paused, Bai Qingqing understood what happened and started to feel nervous.
Muir didn’t change his form. He walked in front of her and entered the courtyard before her.
Curtis stood by the door like a stone statue. It wasn’t known how long he had been standing there for, but his gaze pa.s.sed by him and looked at Bai Qingqing, who was behind Muir and had half of her body exposed.
“Curtis.” Bai Qingqing didn’t hide behind Muir but walked out by herself, holding herself up and walking quickly toward him.
“Ssss~” Sensing the fine change to her scent, the pressure released from Curtis suddenly intensified. Even Bai Qingqing found it hard to breathe for some reason, and her sore and heavy body stiffened even more.
“Where did you go?” Unexpectedly, Curtis’s voice sounded abnormally calm, not blaming anyone at all.
“The rock forest,” Bai Qingqing replied honestly.
Curtis’s gaze cleared up a little. It was fine if it was there. if Muir dared to bring his mate somewhere dangerous, Curtis wasn’t planning on holding back anymore.
With great difficulty, Curtis suppressed his fury. However, the flames in Muir’s eyes shot up.
So Qingqing was bullied like this? Who was he to do that?
Back then, he hadn’t managed to save Qingqing from Curtis. He was to be blamed for not being strong enough. Regretfully, time couldn’t be turned back. Otherwise, he’d definitely try to reach his current level back then and get rid of Curtis at the first instant.
