The sun had lit up a little, and outside the window, a wilted leaf dropped off from the branch, drifting into the room as the morning breeze blew in.

Bai Qingqing got up and stepped on the floor filled with gla.s.s shards while wearing her slippers. She then stood by the windowsill, looking at the ground from the third floor, then at the empty streets.

“I’ll try again.” Bai Qingqing couldn’t wait for a moment longer. She hoped that it was just that the summoning in her previous attempts hadn’t been successful.

Parker’s heart tightened. He didn’t have the experience of being summoned and was worried that Qingqing would fall. He quickly walked to her side.

“Hold on, I’ll go down first.” After saying that, Parker jumped down from the window, his body landing lightly on the ground like a cat. He then stood up and a.s.sumed a pose that showed that he was ready to catch her, saying, “It’s fine now. Come on down.”


This time around, Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to have any reservations. She carefully walked to the very edge of the windowsill and closed her eyes. She imagined that she was on a cliff and that a deep abyss was below her. If she were to fall, she’d be smashed.

After hypnotizing herself like this for three minutes, she almost forgot that she was at home. When the cool morning breeze brushed past her face, it no longer felt cool but had a hint of killing aura.

Parker’s pupils contracted and he felt danger. He was about to jump up to hug her when Bai Qingqing raised one foot, stepping into empty s.p.a.ce. Her body then tilted and she fell.

“Ahhh!” Too engrossed in the act, she forgot to hide her feelings and screamed out loud.

Parker only managed to see the instant his mate jumped down. At the next instant, he felt an intense sense of horror and panic.

Parker’s figure instantly disappeared from the spot. By the time he returned to his senses, his body was already in midair. He seemed to have been hit heavily by something and fell to the ground with his hands empty.

“Qingqing!” Shocked, Parker quickly turned to look for her.

Bai Qingqing was leaning in Curtis’s embrace in his snake-form, panting heavily. A black eagle was next to him on one side, and Winston, wearing beach pants, was on the other side.

Bai Qingqing had yet to break free from the horror of being on the verge of death when she landed in a hot but strong embrace.

This was the first time Winston had s.n.a.t.c.hed his mate from the hands of the other males in the family. He kept his arms tight around his mate’s waist, his eyes fixed on her face, and kept silent for very long.

Bai Qingqing soon returned to her senses. When she saw Winston’s face, she exhaled as if a heavy burden had been taken off her shoulders. She wrapped both arms around his neck and said thankfully, “That’s great. You’re here, too.”

“Qingqing.” Winston buried his face in her neck, sniffing her familiar scent longingly. He then felt like he had become addicted and couldn’t bear to part from her ever again.

Curtis felt a little displeased. He’d have acted up long ago if it was Parker or Curtis. However, he held it in given that it was Winston, and turned his head aside.

“Qingqing, what’s the matter?” Someone knocked on Bai Qingqing’s door, and Mommy Bai’s voice rang through it.

Bai Qingqing quickly pushed Winston’s chest. “Hurry and send me up. We mustn’t let my mom find out.”

However, Winston hugged her even tighter out of reflex. Bai Qingqing was stunned for a moment before realizing that something was amiss with him.

She looked at Winston worriedly, then said in a gentle voice, “Send me up first. I’ll come out to find you guys very soon.” After saying this, she looked at Curtis and said, “You bring them to hide first. Don’t let other people discover you.”

Curtis was considered a senior in this and naturally a.s.sumed the heavy responsibility of hiding the others. He nodded to express his agreement.

Only then did Winston let go of Bai Qingqing. However, he couldn’t bear to send her off. Parker’s arms pa.s.sed between them, embracing her, then with a jump, leaped onto the third-floor balcony.
