Bai Qingqing, who had yet to process the question, asked him curiously with a smile, “Where to?”

“Sea Cliff.” Facing his awakened spouse, Muir felt all the more reluctant to part. He suppressed his weak emotions and said in an even deeper and raspier tone, “To incubate the eggs. I’ll come back after teaching him how to fly.”

Bai Qingqing froze. “But you didn’t even go back to Sea Cliff during the cold season…”

“That’s because I was worried about you, then. Now…”

Now that food was in abundance and there was plenty of manpower at home, his absence wouldn’t affect anything. It was just that he wouldn’t be able to capture delicious prey for Qingqing while he was away.

Bai Qingqing very much wanted to change something, but at the thought of the little snake who had lost control, she fell silent.

Curtis, however, suddenly said coldly, “If you only want one egg, go ahead and leave. But don’t count on anyone to incubate your remaining eggs.”

The stunned Muir and Bai Qingqing simultaneously said, “Say what?”

They both stared at Curtis in shock.

As an eagle beastman who was abandoned by his father right after he learned how to fly, Muir hadn’t had any chance to interact with females before he came of age, so he had no idea what the process of giving birth to eggs was like.

Unlike snake beastmen who inherited knowledge from their legacy, eagle beastmen didn’t even have as profound an understanding of their own species as snake beastmen.

This knowledge was gained by coincidence. One of Curtis’s ancestors had captured a female pregnant with eagle eggs. As the saying goes: “Knowing one’s own strength and the enemy’s is the sure way to victory”. The eagle tribe being snake beastmen’s natural enemy, these memories were pa.s.sed down in the legacy from generation to generation.

Previously, Curtis had already made a fool of Muir using his understanding of the eagle tribe. Now, he was scorning him with his knowledge again.

“Eagle eggs don’t come out all at once. There might be more eggs in Snow’s stomach,” Curtis said blandly.

Bai Qingqing: “…” If there was water in her mouth at the moment, she would definitely have spat it all out.

Dammit. It wasn’t as if she was a chicken. Why should she give birth to an egg a day!

That wasn’t right. Humans didn’t have so many eggs. It was impossible for her to give birth like that.

With that thought, Bai Qingqing felt much more relaxed. But she had a feeling there ought to be one more egg in her stomach.

It wasn’t abnormal to produce two eggs in one menstrual cycle. Wasn’t there such a thing as fraternal twins—twins that looked completely different from each other?

Muir widened his eyes, not at all angered by Curtis’s contemptuous att.i.tude. He placed the egg steadily on the gra.s.s pile, then turned around and sprinted off.

“Where’s he going?” Bai Qingqing picked up the egg again, thinking she might not have such a chance again once Muir took it with him to incubate.

Curtis smoothed her messy hair and said, “Off to get the doctor, I guess.”

Indeed, just as he had guessed, Muir very quickly returned with Harvey. The moment he entered the bedroom, he nearly hurled Harvey at Bai Qingqing.

“Hurry up and have a look at Qingqing.”

Harvey wasn’t fazed upon seeing the egg in Bai Qingqing’s arms. He asked, “Is this yours?”

Naturally, this question was directed at Muir.

“Mm.” Muir’s tanned skin flushed indistinctly, and he dared not look at his spouse.

To be so inferior as a spouse, he could feel a fiery sensation on his face.

Why hadn’t he spent some time asking a fellow eagle beastman who already had progeny of their own? Else, he wouldn’t have embarra.s.sed himself like this today. Nor would he have been misled by Curtis during the cold season.

Thinking back, it really was incredibly dumb of him. Clearly, he had inexhaustible techniques when it came to hunting, but it was like his brain lost its ability to function when facing Bai Qingqing. Never mind the fact that he was clueless as to how eagle eggs were laid. To think he could even believe that those ten eggs belonged to him.

Curtis needn’t even do anything, and Muir would be killed by his own stupidity.
