Chapter 1230: The Beastmen’s Perspective of Human Females
“Mm,” Bai Qingqing replied and swallowed her saliva. The hand then seemed to use more force.
“How long has this been going on for?” Muir continued to ask. His voice was so calm that it frightened Bai Qingqing.
She felt even more uneasy.
Does Muir really dislike me?
Since Parker, Winston, and Curtis all didn’t mind it, she’d just a.s.sumed that Muir wouldn’t mind it either. But, Muir was his own person with his own thoughts. It would be normal for him to have a different opinion towards it.
Bai Qingqing was scared and disappointed. Even if Muir detested her because of this, she didn’t want to fall out with him. After all, Muir had been genuine towards her in the beginning. She just didn’t tell him the truth, causing him to fall into her trap. Letting him leave now would be too cruel—he couldn’t even pursue other females in the future.
What’s more, given that he was so powerful, he might even harm other females and become the next Saint Zachary. Saint Zachary at least did things out of love. Muir would be doing things out of vengeance.
The more Bai Qingqing thought about it, the more afraid she was. She lowered her eyes as they became dewy.
“Ever since I was thirteen until I bore my first child with Curtis when I was almost seventeen,” Bai Qingqing replied in a low, m.u.f.fled voice.
“Four years…” Muir mumbled.
Bai Qingqing didn’t hear him clearly. She blinked away her tears and said, “After that, I didn’t experience much bleeding. I was either pregnant or breastfeeding. And after that, I recovered.”
She said that so that Muir wouldn’t think she was weird. See, she wasn’t that much different from normal females. She could go into heat only once every few years.
She didn’t plan on bearing any more children after giving birth to the eagle eggs, but that didn’t matter to her right now. She had to keep Muir by her side first.
Muir let out a heavy sigh. Then, he suddenly hugged Bai Qingqing tightly and pressed her head against his chest with a large hand. He wished he could press her into his body so that he could share some of her pain.
Bai Qingqing was stunned and blinked in his arms. Her long eyelashes brushed against Muir’s skin like little brushes. The itchiness snapped him out of his thoughts.
“You lost so much blood…” Muir said hoa.r.s.ely. His eyes had a strange twinkle to them as he looked at Bai Qingqing as if they had filled with tears.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t believe it. She asked him carefully, “That’s it?”
“Twelve times in one year, forty-eight times in four years.” Muir hugged her even more tightly. He didn’t dare to continue counting. He asked in a voice full of hope, “What about in the future? It won’t happen again, right?”
Bai Qingqing then finally understood that Muir was just worried about her. Tears started rolling down her cheeks uncontrollably as she blinked because of the emotional rollercoaster she just went through.
Muir thought she was crying because of all the hards.h.i.+ps she’d suffered, and his heart ached even more. He gently patted her back to comfort her, wanting to say something, but then realizing that he couldn’t do anything.
Bai Qingqing let out an amused laugh upon seeing the look on his face. “It’s annoying, but you get used to it. Every female in our world experiences it.”
At least Qingqing’s not sick
, Muir thought. That was the only way he could comfort himself.
The two quietly embraced for a while before Muir asked, “When does it stop?”
“Sigh, that will take many more years. No point thinking about it now. When my period stops coming, I’d be old,” Bai Qingqing said resignedly as she wiped her tears away.
Muir sighed as well. He pulled a hand away and placed it firmly on his thigh. He hoped that everything that had happened today was just a dream. That way, Qingqing wouldn’t have to suffer endless torture.
