Chapter 1494: Viewing the Same Gender With Enmity
Holding the egg in her arms, Bai Qingqing’s lips arched in a faint smile. She gently shook her head and said, “Other than today, it’s been fine. It’s not tough at all.”
Looking at his mate’s gentle smile, Muir couldn’t help but smile as well. He reached a hand into the blanket and held his mate’s hand which was caressing the bird’s egg.
Zhang Xin followed them to the entrance of the room. As Muir had been in too great a hurry, he had forgotten to close the door. The duo’s intimate interaction was seen by him.
If Bai Qingqing was with Muir, then what was the deal with that red-haired guy previously?
He suddenly felt that Bai Qingqing’s lifestyle was a bit wild and couldn’t quite accept it. He shook his head and retreated a few steps.
Hearing the footsteps, Muir restrained his expression and got up to face Zhang Xin.
“Thank you for sending my Qingqing back.” Muir didn’t at all show a pleasant countenance towards Zhang Xin. As Bai Qingqing’s mate, Muir couldn’t possibly show affection towards any males who were close to Bai Qingqing. Even if the male before him was a feeble human being.
Sensing Muir’s coldness, Zhang Xin didn’t bother to act friendly and said coldly, “No need to thank me. I was helping Bai Qingqing, not you.”
Muir’s countenance turned even colder, and he riveted his sharp gaze upon him.
Zhang Xin definitely wouldn’t be able to withstand the oppressive aura of a stripeless beast. It was just that the blood of a beastman didn’t flow in him, so he didn’t go so far as to feel oppressed by Muir’s level. Though he was gripped by fear inside, he managed to maintain a calm facade.
Bai Qingqing naturally couldn’t see the tension brewing between the two of them. She held Muir’s hand and shook it. “Help me get him something to drink.”
“Okay.” Facing Bai Qingqing, Muir’s tone instantly became unbelievably gentle, forming a stark contrast with his cold demeanor a moment ago.
Zhang Xin said, “No need.”
An inexplicable rage simmered in his heart. For the first time, he revealed an impatient tone at Bai Qingqing. “I need to get back to school. I’ll leave first.”
“Mm,” Bai Qingqing responded and pushed Muir. “Send him out. Pay attention to the leopards. Wild beasts are wild beasts, after all. You’ve got to take note.”
“Okay, I’ll be right back,” Muir said gently. After covering her with the blanket properly, he got up to send Zhang Xin out.
Zhang Xin walked in front, and Muir caught up in a few strides. There was a huge difference between the physiques of a 16-year-old human and that of a mature male beastman, so their auras were starkly distinct too. One was like an elegant young man from a rich family, while the other exuded a powerful strength like a wild beast in a primitive forest.
Neither spoke along the way. After exiting the villa, Zhang Xin directly got into the car and instructed his chauffeur to drive off. Muir didn’t bother to exchange pleasantries with him either and directly closed the door.
Although it wasn’t tiring giving birth to an egg, it was as though the egg had extracted all her strength, causing Bai Qingqing’s body to feel completely devoid of energy.
She lazily lay on the bed and caressed the smooth eggsh.e.l.l. “Although Mommy is very surprised by your arrival, Mommy still likes you very much. You’ve got to break out of your sh.e.l.l quickly, okay?”
Muir, who happened to walk to the door, felt inexplicably touched when he heard that. He entered the room, sat on the floor beside the bed, and said, “You’re not going to school these few days, are you?”
At the mention of this problem, Bai Qingqing looked troubled. As she hugged the egg, she said helplessly, “How can I not go to school? If I skip school these few days, the teacher will definitely call my parents. How am I to explain to them?”
“But you’ve only just given birth to an egg. You won’t know when the next one is coming out.” Muir voiced his disagreement.
He couldn’t quite understand the issues vexing Bai Qingqing and wholeheartedly tried to convince her.
