Chapter 1238: Argument Over Egg Incubation Spot
Bai Qingqing thought about it and felt it made sense, so she nodded. “Okay.”
Parker happily went off to make preparations. How could Muir not tell what he was so happy about? He grumbled internally. Could he return this nest of eggs? He wanted to continue interacting with Qingqing like they did these past few months!
Parker had just gone out when Winston entered the house. He briskly walked to Bai Qingqing’s side, pulled her into his embrace, and let out a sigh, feeling heartache for her.
“Does it hurt this time?” he asked in his deep voice.
It was the hot season now, so Winston’s body was scalding like the stove. A rash developed on Bai Qingqing’s body from the heat from his body, making her shove at his chest with her pet.i.te hand to break free of his embrace.
“It was okay…” Recalling how she was unaware that she was giving birth at the time, Bai Qingqing was embarra.s.sed to say it felt painful.
Winston heaved a sigh of relief and said, “That’s good.”
He then looked towards Muir and asked, “Are you planning to go back to Sea Cliff?”
“Mm,” Muir responded. He couldn’t help glancing at Bai Qingqing reluctantly.
The joy from Bai Qingqing’s face faded. Her emotions were written all over her face, and her delicate brows furrowed deeply.
She tried holding herself back, but ultimately couldn’t stop herself from asking, “Can’t it change a little?”
The failure in educating the little snakes stemmed from their legacy memories, for they would confuse themselves with their fathers. This wasn’t a problem for the eagle beastmen, and the reason they were left at Sea Cliff was to train their will from young.
“Rock Forest’s environment resembles Sea Cliff. Can’t we just place them there?” Bai Qingqing asked with antic.i.p.ation as she gazed at him with her pitiful doggy-like eyes.
To be gazed at by his lover like that, Muir very nearly gave in. Ultimately, though, he hardened his heart and said calmly, “The vast and open gra.s.s plains help in broadening the aspirations of the eagle beastmen. But the resource-rich forest will demolish a young eagle’s will.”
Bai Qingqing understood that to mean leading an easy life would sap one’s will and determination.
“But there’s the desert next to the forest. The desert toughens them too,” Bai Qingqing added, refusing to give up.
Muir said nothing, but his creased brows made clear his disagreement.
Curtis and Winston both kept quiet. Winston picked up An’an, who had just woken from her nap, and propped up her arms to teach her how to walk.
At one and a half years of age, An’an could stand upright now. But the moment her hands were let go, she would sit down. They could only support her and help her walk a few steps every day.
Although Bai Qingqing hadn’t carried much hope, she couldn’t help feeling dejected to see Muir disagree.
She wanted very much to see the baby eagles break out of their sh.e.l.ls. There was an idiom saying baby birds recognized the first living being they saw to be their mother. She wondered if this was the case for eagle beastmen. If they didn’t see her when they broke out of their sh.e.l.ls, would they still recognize her as their mother?
“Err… then I’ll go with you.” Bai Qingqing had no choice but to opt for the next best option.
The moment these words came out of her mouth, the three males unanimously expressed their disagreement.
“Nonsense!” Curtis pinned down her legs with his tail, as though afraid she was going to run away this very moment.
Winston also said, “The ground surface frequently shakes over there. The weather is even more horrendous than in the forest.”
“I know,” Bai Qingqing said, not minding it. But the three males didn’t show any signs of relenting, making her feel disheartened.
The bedroom plunged into silence momentarily, and the sound of An’an’s clothes rubbing against each other became the loudest noise in the room until the leopard cubs returned.
Kids always tended to destroy the existence of calmness. Seeing the new egg in their mommy’s arms, their eyes lit up and they pounced towards her roaring.
Eldest: Roar! Roar! Roar! [Want to incubate the egg!]
Second: Roarrr! [The egg belongs to me!]
Third: Roar! Roarrrrrr! [You guys will be beaten to death by Muir.]
