Chapter 1245: Sunrise
Understanding his tone, Bai Qingqing grabbed his paw and said, “If not, what explains the dust on your hand? You clearly washed your hands before bed last night!”
She had strictly instructed this, and it took her a long time before she finally corrected this bad habit of his.
Of course, all males weren’t bothered with such trivial stuff, but Parker was more free-spirited and kept forgetting.
“Ooh~” Parker fell silent again.
Bai Qingqing didn’t think too much about it and only said, “You went to relieve yourself during the night? Eh, don’t go in your beast form. After you step on the ground you’ll come back and touch me with those paws.”
Parker heaved a big sigh of relief and transformed into a human, then said firmly, “I’ll take note next time. You can continue sleeping, it’s still early.”
Bai Qingqing rubbed her eyes and, gazing at the dim skies outside, said, “It’s gonna be dawn soon. Won’t be able to sleep much longer, anyway. Why don’t we get up to watch the sunrise?”
“What’s so nice about the sunrise?” Parker was skeptical about the idea.
Fond of lazing around in bed, Bai Qingqing had actually never seen the sunrise before, either.
“I hear it’s gorgeous. Go and check if the sun is out yet,” Bai Qingqing said as she shoved him.
Parker stretched lazily in bed, before crawling out.
Shortly after, his voice rang from outside. “It should be out soon. I see a red glow in the horizon.”
Perfect timing. What a rare opportunity.
In her excitement, Bai Qingqing forgot about the cold. She abruptly lifted the blanket and swiftly put on an animal skin coat and pants and straw shoes, before das.h.i.+ng out. All that took her less than 30 seconds.
Muir was stunned by her speediness.
“It’s coming out!” Watching as the skies turned increasingly red, as though a golden sun would burst out anytime, Parker couldn’t help but get nervous as well.
“It’s so red!” Bai Qingqing sighed with emotion, gooseb.u.mps rising all over her body. s.h.i.+vering, she edged closer to Parker.
Hugging her, Parker sat on the ground and plopped her down on his lap with both arms around her shoulders.
“It’s coming out soon!” exclaimed Parker.
But he had said this six or seven times, yet the sun still hadn’t revealed its face. It was just that the clouds in the horizon were becoming increasingly vibrant, turning unbelievably red like a stretch of churning lava. It also looked like a faraway forest had caught fire, and the glow was das.h.i.+ng towards the horizon.
The duo leaning against each other was enveloped in a red glow, casting a shared shadow on the ground.
They admired with antic.i.p.ation as the sun rose. As for Muir, his gaze was riveted upon that shadow, as though he could find his spouse’s shadow from within.
He very much wanted to tell Bai Qingqing that such a sunrise was even more stunning at the Sea Cliff.
But even as things were, it was already quite perfect. After the eggs were hatched, he would also have the chance to wait for the sunrise with Qingqing.
Under Bai Qingqing’s anxious antic.i.p.ation, the sun finally shyly revealed an arc. The next moment, a splendid glow draped over the earth.
Bai Qingqing had just narrowed her eyes when she realized that the sun’s silhouette had turned blurry. The clouds at the horizon seemed to be splashed with a vermillion red instantaneously, the color several times more vibrant than earlier. The skies also finally dispelled the haziness and lost that surreal quality.
“Wah!” Bai Qingqing was astounded. No wonder the sunrise was known for its spectacular scenery. Seeing with her own eyes today, it was indeed magical.
The sun only stayed blurry for a very short time before it quickly regained clarity, hanging in the sky like half a salted egg yolk, transferring its warmth to all which its rays shone upon.
Bai Qingqing closed her eyes and, as she basked in the warmth of the suns.h.i.+ne, inhaled deeply and sighed. “It’s gorgeous!”
