“Didn’t I tell you that this happens every month? I’m in heat.” Bai Qingqing turned around so that she was face to face with Parker and told him seriously, “It’s the truth.”

Bai Qingqing didn’t plan to tell him about the fact that she didn’t copulate with Cortis. This was his tribe’s secret, and she didn’t have the right to reveal it to anyone.

“There you go spouting nonsense again.” Parker chuckled and pinched Bai Qingqing’s nose. “Don’t you know that saying that will make males even crazier? You can give birth to many children every year. By then, you’ll become the tribe’s tool for producing children.”

Bai Qingqing was taken aback and her face instantly paled.

Yeah, why didn’t she think of that? Given how eager males in the tribe were to reproduce, and how greedy the ape king was, the powerful people in the City of Beastmen would very likely imprison her and make her a reproductive tool.

So what if females could end partners.h.i.+ps? So what if abandoned males were not allowed to mate? Those kings could still find females and force them into being intimate with them.

What naturally followed would be a never-ending cycle of getting pregnant and giving birth…

Bai Qingqing grew more terrified the more she thought about it. Her body couldn’t help but tremble.

“What’s wrong, Qingqing?” Parker asked nervously upon seeing Bai Qingqing’s face pale. “Is your stomach hurting again?”

Bai Qingqing’s neck stiffened and she trembled as she shook her head. Her eyes quickly filled with tears, which rolled down her cheeks with every movement of her head.

“Qingqing.” Parker immediately sat up and hugged her. He had an extremely anxious look on his face as he asked, “What’s wrong?”

Bai Qingqing looked at Parker with teary eyes as she opened her mouth and finally spoke. “Parker… I’m telling you the truth… I don’t want to become a tool for producing children…”

Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but burst into tears.

Parker was stunned for a moment before he hugged her more tightly, his ears upright.

“Shh~ It’s okay. We can’t let anyone find out about this,” Parker said in an unusually low voice as if he had instantly matured by ten years. He bent down and kissed the top of Bai Qingqing’s hair as he said, “I’ll protect you.”

“Mm.” Bai Qingqing nodded, still choked up.

Parker continued to hug her and silently comforted her for a long time. She eventually grew exhausted from crying and fell asleep in his arms.

Cortis’s prediction was very accurate. On the fourth day, he returned with a plant.

Bai Qingqing didn’t even glance at it and pounced on Cortis the moment she saw him.

“You’re back!”

Cortis bent down and wrapped an arm around her with surprise in his glowing red eyes. “Did Xiao Bai miss me?”

Bai Qingqing wanted to reply to him, but she felt aggrieved when she saw Cortis and whimpered.

Cortis’s expression changed slightly. His eyes scanned the interior of the house and landed on Parker, who happened to walk out of the bedroom at this moment. He glared coldly at him and his body exuded a murderous aura. “You took advantage of her?”

Bai Qingqing quickly shook her head and held back her tears as she said, “He didn’t.”

Cortis hugged Bai Qingqing as he slithered into the house and asked her softly, “Then, who was it?”

Parker glanced at Bai Qingqing and said, “I’ll go out to get some fresh air.”

“Mm.” Bai Qingqing nodded.

After Parker left the house, Bai Qingqing told Cortis everything in detail.

Cortis’s brows then furrowed together tightly. “Won’t that mean that you’ll give birth to a lot of children?”

“Mm.” Bai Qingqing nodded subconsciously. A few moments pa.s.sed before she realized what Cortis said and looked up at him in confusion. “Huh?”

He was right that she could give birth to a few children every year, but… why did he say that with such disdain? Didn’t beastmen all love children?
