As her body landed on solid ground again, Bai Qingqing was in a stunned state.

What had just happened?

Just then, Muir and Winston entered the bedroom. Seeing Bai Qingqing lying beside the window as per usual, Winston naturally walked over. Muir, however, froze in place.

Parker caught that brief moment and sneered in his heart, determined not to return her to him.

If this had happened any other day, Parker wouldn’t be so petty about it. But today, Qingqing had already hung out individually with Muir for an entire day, and now she had s.h.i.+fted to his nest to sleep with him. Any male would let his imagination run wild, much less the proud Parker.

Muir completely didn’t get his logic. He cast an uncertain glance at Bai Qingqing and hesitated for a moment before saying, “Qingqing said she will sleep with me tonight.”

Qingqing only didn’t dare to sleep with them for fear that they would sniff the odor on her and get upset. Muir only spoke up because he suspected Parker had carried Bai Qingqing away.

Knowing Muir would say so, Parker replied calmly, “Qingqing must have changed her mind, then. When I came in she was already sleeping here.”

Muir paused. “Really?”

Lying on the bed, Bai Qingqing froze imperceptibly for a fleeting moment.

Dammit, Parker’s lying!

He sounded so convincing even she nearly believed him.

“Hmph! Surely I wouldn’t lie to you? If you don’t believe me, just ask Qingqing tomorrow.” Parker’s att.i.tude was gracious and composed, showing no trace of pretense.

Don’t believe him! No!!

Bai Qingqing screamed in her heart.

Muir, look carefully. Didn’t I say I would sleep with you tonight? Don’t let Parker get away with this!

Muir took his words for it. After all, when he left, Bai Qingqing had yet to fall asleep. It was perfectly normal for her to change her mind.

“Go ahead and sleep with her, then.” Muir nodded, before walking to his nest to squat down.

No idea if it was his hallucination, he felt a lingering warmth in his nest. It felt like Qingqing’s warmth.

He must be possessed.

Parker raised a golden brow, glee written all over his face. Yet, his heart was filled with bitterness. Winston didn’t read too much into it, simply accepting whatever they said. Even if Qingqing liked Muir a lot, he was okay with it. He was already content to be able to quietly treat Qingqing well.

Sensing the warmth from both sides and pretending to sleep with her eyes closed, Bai Qingqing felt exasperated.

Please don’t detect the scent. Was it too late for her to “wake up” now?

“Ooh~” Bai Qingqing ultimately decided to pretend she was woken. She yawned and raised her hands to rub her eyes.

Parker’s heart clenched and he instantly pulled Bai Qingqing into his arms and coaxed her gently, “Go on, go back to sleep.”

Bai Qingqing was speechless.

This hug from him messed up her plan to extricate herself from this situation. Because he had already detected the abnormal odor.

“The two of you…” Parker froze.

Since the matter was exposed, Bai Qingqing gave up entirely. She didn’t even bother to get up anymore. She opened her eyes and gazed at him, gripped by a sense of unease.

Parker’s first reaction was an even deeper sorrow. However, he quickly realized Qingqing was avoiding him and Winston precisely because she didn’t wish for them to find out about this.

Yeah, Qingqing had said she was going to give birth to Muir’s offspring. Naturally, the implication was that she was going to copulate with him.

But he couldn’t. Qingqing was so fond of ruminating and was definitely worried that he would be upset. It was perfectly normal for her to temporarily avoid him so as not to make him sad.

At this thought, a grin appeared on Parker’s face and he tightly held Bai Qingqing in his arms. As for Curtis and Winston, he chose to ignore those two.

“I like you so much!” Parker buried his face in her shoulder, clearly worked up.

So it turned out to be a false alarm. The leopard was nearly startled to death.

Bai Qingqing, too, froze. Affected by Parker’s infectious joy, the corners of her lips arched in a sweet smile.
