Chapter 1232: Stomachache
The landscape was a field of flowers that resembled stars. The layers of petals, as well as the light and dark colors, created a colorful painting.
The young girl sat comfortably in this flower field enveloped in the shade of the trees and diligently drew the beautiful scenery.
Her bright white dress shone brilliantly in the sunlight as if there were countless small diamonds on it. A waterfall-like head of curly hair fell over her shoulders and down into the Flos Eriocauli flowers around her waist. The contrast between her dark brown hair and the pale blue flowers felt natural and harmonious. The beautiful sight was visually impactful.
Bai Qingqing diligently recorded this breathtaking scenery of nature, unaware that others’ eyes had landed on her and that she had become the most beautiful being.
The Flos Eriocauli field was one of the village’s beautiful sceneries. An avid artist like her naturally wouldn’t miss it. She’d made an agreement with Molly yesterday and brought her children over early this morning.
Fewer and fewer people came here as the newly arrived females in the tribe no longer found the Flos Eriocauli field interesting. Not only that, females couldn’t be exposed to the sun during the hot season. Right now, it was extremely quiet here.
Molly stood at the side and watched An’an and Anna buried in the flower field. The leopard cubs excitedly ran about, creating waves in the flower field. This made such a surreal sight more lively.
“Bai Qingqing, when will you be done drawing?” Molly asked, rolling in the flower fields over to Bai Qingqing’s feet.
Bai Qingqing quickly glanced at her before swiftly returning her gaze to the drawing paper. As she continued drawing, she said in a soft voice, “If you’re bored, just take a nap under the tree. Muir will watch over the kids.”
Although Molly wasn’t sleepy, she yawned upon hearing that, and her eyes welled up with tears.
She sat up and hugged Bai Qingqing such that her whole body hung over hers. She then looked at the drawing paper.
“Wow! It really does resemble it!” Molly exclaimed. She looked at the scenery before her, then at the drawing paper, her surprise turning into shock. “Wow! It’s exactly the same! Yours just doesn’t have any color!”
This was the first time Molly had seen Bai Qingqing drawing. She was like a country b.u.mpkin entering the city as she curiously reached out to touch the drawing paper.
Bai Qingqing quickly waved her hand away. “Don’t touch it. You’ll smudge the drawing.”
“Is this black because of burnt wood?” Molly asked. She was curious about the color on the paper since the drawing looked nice. She then realized that she’d never seen the paper, either.
“Eh? What leaf is this? It’s so white and smooth,” Molly asked, quickly touching the edges of the drawing paper that didn’t have any ink on them when Bai Qingqing wasn’t looking.
Ugh, it felt weird too. What plant did this leaf come from?
Bai Qingqing smiled and replied, “This is made from wood. I’ll give you a few pieces to draw on on the way back.”
“Okay!” Molly said, happily clapping her hands. She then attentively watched Bai Qingqing draw.
She picked a flower and held it up against the drawing paper. After carefully comparing the two, she realized it was exactly the same as the one on the drawing paper. All the color had just been sucked out of the latter, making it not look as nice as the real thing.
Molly couldn’t help but say regretfully, “If only this was colored. I wish I could just press the flowers onto this.”
The gears in Bai Qingqing’s head began turning at those words. It was indeed boring to constantly draw black-and-white drawings, and it would be nice to add some color.
As Bai Qingqing looked at the flower field, which was as wide as a wheat field, she wondered if she should pick some flowers before leaving and try to make paint from it.
Bai Qingqing could no longer sit still after getting distracted. Feeling sore all over, she raised both arms to stretch. As she sat upright, she suddenly felt a dull pain in her stomach.
