Chapter 1231: Muir Had Incompetent Reproductive Abilities?
Bai Qingqing was the first one to free herself from her baffling sadness. She pushed him away and said, “Quickly go wipe it away.”
“Mm,” Muir answered. He still carried Bai Qingqing to the bedroom before going to wash his body.
He wasn’t concerned about what Parker and the rest, who happened to be back home, would see.
Curtis reached home earlier than Parker and Winston even though he left later than them. Bai Qingqing heard a gust of wind, then landed into a strong pair of arms.
Bai Qingqing recognized the pair of arms from the coolness. She poked the arms weirdly and asked, “What’s wrong?”
Curtis buried his face in her hair and inhaled longingly, barely suppressing the panic he felt when he came ash.o.r.e and didn’t see Snow there.
He rubbed his nose softly against the top of Bai Qingqing’s hair and said, “Don’t leave me.” His voice, though quiet, was undoubtedly determined.
He wasn’t sure if he would be calm as he was today if she disappeared from his world one day.
It took Bai Qingqing some time to realize why Curtis was feeling this way. She smiled and said, “Relax. Where could I go? I’m not going anywhere. I’ll always remain by your side.”
Winston and Parker ran over, side by side, and heard this confession from their mate.
Not going anywhere. Always remain by your side…
For some reason, these words had been faintly carved onto their hearts.
Memories were naturally filtered such that valuable ones would be stored. Some memories would stir up intense emotions at first, but these emotions would quickly fade away with time. Other memories were like fine wine—the longer they were stored, the better they were.
These words had been inexplicably carved into their hearts for the rest of their lives.
Maybe this was just their keen beastman instincts at work.
Qingqing wasn’t someone from their world. Her origins were a mystery. Things that couldn’t be controlled always caused panic. To make matters worse, Bai Qingqing was the person they cared about the most.
These words at least provided them some relief.
“Ah. Parker, Winston. You guys are back,” Bai Qingqing happily greeted them after seeing them from beyond Curtis’ arms.
Winston’s gaze was gentle as he placed An’an by her side. He asked her in a deep voice, “Did it hurt this time?”
Bai Qingqing shook her head, then nodded slightly. “A little. But I couldn’t feel it after lying down.”
Curtis then let her go so that she could lie down.
Muir already knew that Bai Qingqing could bear future generations every month. This time, after her period ended, it would be harder for something between them to happen.
But, Muir found it hard to control his emotions, especially when his mate’s body gave off such an alluring scent. He always succ.u.mbed once or twice every month.
However, even after the light rainy season pa.s.sed in a blink of an eye and the Flos Eriocauli bloomed, Bai Qingqing didn’t experience anything.
A conception rate like that wasn’t by any means slow in the beastman world, but Bai Qingqing had easily gotten pregnant the previous few times. She then began to worry. Had she harmed her body, or did Muir have incompetent reproductive abilities?
Muir could vaguely sense his mate’s suspicion towards him. No male could tolerate anyone being suspicious of his reproductive abilities. However, he was thankful and not the least bit anxious. It was better to take things slow.
Not only would this allow Qingqing to rest properly, but it also allowed him to make love to her every month. As a result, he quickly felt himself become the common enemy of the other males in the house.
Muir’s tightly pressed lips curved up slightly at the thought. Given that he never spoke much, this smile seemed especially gentle.
He quietly watched his lover diligently draw under the shade of a tree.
