Chapter 1141: Overeating from the Intense Hidden Emotions
Muir’s hostility was far too obvious, and Curtis instantly sensed it. He raised his blood-red eyes and looked at him.
The two beastmen looked at each other, radiating intense sparks, and the atmosphere started to tense up.
In a contention between the strong, those around them would be implicated. Bai Qingqing felt that it was getting increasingly harder to breathe. This was no longer just a mental pressure. She felt as if she was situated deep in the sea, withstanding water pressure that she couldn’t escape from.
Suddenly, a big and strong hand tugged Bai Qingqing’s arm, pulling her into his embrace.
“If you guys want to fight, go outside. Don’t create trouble at home.” Winston threw a glance at Bai Qingqing’s countenance, then he patted her in consolation.
At the same time, the pressure disappeared, and Bai Qingqing’s breathing relaxed.
Muir immediately restrained the energy he was emitting wearing a regretful expression. He seemed to be at a loss as he looked at Bai Qingqing in Winston’s arms.
Curtis also threw her a worried glance, deciding not to hold it against Muir anymore. He then turned and entered the bedroom.
The atmosphere at home was very tensed up today. This was even when Muir and Curtis didn’t go up against each other. When evening arrived, the tense atmosphere became even more obvious.
Dinner was a meal that everyone had to eat, except for Curtis. In the past, Curtis liked the occasional dish, but due to the insect plague this year, the food variety had reduced. Therefore, he didn’t have the chance to join them at the table.
However, Curtis joined them at the table today, bringing the tense atmosphere to a freezing point. It was like a bow that was pulled to the maximum point, with the arrow releasing at the slightest point of relaxing.
The main food was roasted behemoth meat. Muir used his hands to tear up a piece of meat into pieces, placing them into Bai Qingqing’s bowl.
“Thank you.” Bai Qingqing had just spoken when she noticed, from the corner of her eye, which was constantly paying attention to Curtis, that he was looking at her.
Bai Qingqing immediately used a piece of vegetable to neatly roll up some roasted meat that didn’t have much condiment on it, pa.s.sing it to him.
“You try some too.”
Curtis’s expression softened a little. It wasn’t because she had offered him food, but that he noticed the details when she was rolling up the meat. She knew that he didn’t like to eat food with strong tastes and therefore naturally had such practices when giving him food.
Curtis pushed it back to her, saying gently, “You eat it. Have more meat.”
“En.” As if she had been bewitched, Bai Qingqing opened her mouth and stuffed the roll into it. The roll turned out to be too big, and she was unable to move it around in her mouth. She had to bulge her cheeks and chew for a long time.
Curtis faintly smiled and also wanted to get some food for her. However, afraid of the heat, he hesitated. Bai Qingqing noticed this and immediately stopped him.
Curtis felt disappointed. Seeing that Muir was currying up to Bai Qingqing, he thought of something and let out a soft laugh.
His laughter was gentle but mocking, giving one the chills.
Bai Qingqing felt stifled. Forgetting to use her chopsticks, she grabbed the meat and stuffed it into her mouth. She forcibly used more food to wash down the food stuck in her throat.
Due to this, Bai Qingqing ended up eating quite a lot of meat. Only when she got up did she realize that her stomach was stuffed.
After the meal, Muir cleaned up the table. He had gotten good at doing housework despite only having done it for a few days. Bai Qingqing got the broom and was sweeping the floor when she saw Winston about to boil water. She quickly said, “I’m not taking a bath today anymore.”
“Hmmm?” Winston threw her a doubtful glance toward. She was someone who had to take a bath every day.
Bai Qingqing thought of all the traces on her body, thinking that Winston would probably feel irascible as well if she removed her clothes.
After giving Muir a thras.h.i.+ng in her heart, Bai Qingqing explained, “I washed up at the river when we came back.”
Winston saw the flush on her face and then saw the obvious hickey at the back of her ear. He understood what had happened and thus didn’t insist.
