Chapter 1225: Unaware of the Oriole Behind
“You… found out about it?” Bai Qingqing hugged him, feeling worried.
Parker loosened his grip and tapped the tip of her exquisite and sharp nose. “No big deal. So long as it’s not…” So long as it wasn’t about her liking Muir.
Of course, if it weren’t for Bai Qingqing’s attempts to hide this from them, resulting in the misunderstanding, he would surely feel frustrated when he learned of it. But compared to Bai Qingqing “falling for another”, this wasn’t even worth a mention.
There was grat.i.tude in Bai Qingqing’s eyes as she gazed at Parker. She was glad that not only did she have spouses that loved her, they were also understanding of her.
Hugging Parker more tightly, she asked curiously, “So long as it’s not what?”
Parker’s eyes rolled about. He mustn’t let Qingqing find out about his weak and unconfident thoughts.
“So long as it’s not because you don’t like the food I prepare. You didn’t eat a single meal at home today!” Parker’s tone was stern, and even carried a hint of accusation.
Bai Qingqing froze, caught between laughter and tears. Need his reflex arc be so big? She couldn’t keep up with his tempo.
Winston was baffled by all this. Though, seeing that his beloved was in a pretty good mood, he felt happy too. He could sense Qingqing turn around to face him. Sleepiness dissipating entirely, he gazed at her with sparkling eyes.
“Winston.” Bai Qingqing held his hand. As she flipped over, the blanket parted, revealing the remnant odors of lovemaking on her body.
Winston wrinkled his nose, only then understood what Parker and she were talking about earlier. Feeling touched, he helplessly stroked her head.
“You’re really fond of ruminating. Hurry up and go to sleep,” said Winston.
“Mm!” Bai Qingqing nodded vigorously, only then did she close her eyes with peace of mind.
Opposite, a sense of relief washed over Muir too.
So it turned out Qingqing had really changed her mind halfway through. He had nothing to worry about.
The family drifted off to dreamland peacefully. In the later part of the night, Curtis slowly slithered into the bedroom. He was always in such a lazy state after eating his fill.
The males in the house had long grown used to the sounds he made, so they subconsciously dismissed it and remained soundly asleep.
Curtis came to a halt beside Bai Qingqing. Seeing her sound asleep manner, his heart brimmed with fondness. He had a strong urge to hold her in his arms.
Since when had Curtis ever ill-treated himself? So, he hugged her. Wrapping Bai Qingqing in a blanket, he extracted her from between the two males.
“Ooh~” Feeling the sudden chilliness, Parker waved his claws in the air. Thinking it was Qingqing who pulled the blanket away, he flipped over and continued sleeping.
Winston didn’t move, either. He merely opened his eyes quietly as the shadow Curtis cast over him s.h.i.+fted away from his face.
Afraid Bai Qingqing would catch a cold, Curtis didn’t remove the blanket enveloping her and then closed his eyes to rest.
Winston heaved a sigh of relief. Curtis didn’t have Parker’s childish domineeringness. If he wanted to pursue the matter, Muir probably wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight.
Due to the chilly air early the next morning, Bai Qingqing woke up much earlier than usual.
When she opened her eyes to see Curtis right before her, Bai Qingqing was stunned for a good while.
Had she slept herself silly? Wasn’t she lying in Muir’s nest?
Wait a minute, that’s not right. She was later carried back to Parker’s bed.
Could it be… that she was ultimately moved away by Curtis? But why hadn’t she the slightest impression of it?
Bai Qingqing tried her best to recall, but it was a fruitless endeavor. Instead, she was jolted wide awake by a leopard’s howl.
Such a great reaction naturally came from Parker.
