Chapter 1495: Winston’s Career
“That’s true.” Bai Qingqing felt even more of a headache now. She didn’t want to go through what she had experienced today again. To embarra.s.s herself in front of everyone was a small matter, but it would be terrible if she accidentally dropped the egg and smashed it.
After thinking for a while, she said, “The sports meet will last for three days, from Wednesday to Friday, after which we will have a break from school. If I manage to apply for leave, I’ll be able to rest till next Monday before going to school. That’ll be pretty good.”
Muir relaxed and redoubled his efforts. “Then go ahead and apply for leave. It’s been a long time since we got to spend some peaceful time together.”
“I need to think up an excuse.” Bai Qingqing buried her head in her pillow, then suddenly tilted her head to ask, “Where’s Curtis? I’ll ask him if he has any solutions.”
“Curtis went to look at the land,” said Muir.
“Then, where’s Winston?” Bai Qingqing asked.
Muir replied, “He rarely comes back when you’re not at home.”
After that kidnapping incident, Bai Qingqing understood what Winston was working as. For the time being, she wasn’t able to help him look for a job, so she could only turn a blind eye and merely remind him to be careful.
Now that she suddenly couldn’t find them, Bai Qingqing felt quite lonely.
She took out Muir’s phone from his pocket and tapped on the contact list. Four contacts were neatly listed.
Her name was the first, followed by Curtis, Parker, and Winston.
“I’ll call and inform them.”
Muir took the phone from her and covered her with the blanket properly once more, saying gently, “I’ll make the calls. Have a good rest. Your lunch is almost ready. Shall I bring it to you?”
“Mm.” Bai Qingqing nodded lightly. s.h.i.+fting her body, her face crumpled in discomfort. She said, “You’d better fetch me a basin of warm water first. I want to wipe my lower body. Feels sticky there.”
“Okay.” As Muir made the calls, he walked into the bathroom.
When Curtis and the rest were notified, they immediately rushed back from wherever they were at. Within an hour’s time, all four mates were gathered by Bai Qingqing’s bed.
“What? Qingqing actually gave birth to Muir’s egg? When did the two of you mate?” Parker asked in shock.
Winston still carried the smell of gunpowder. There was a black gun at his waist. Because he had been practicing shooting outside, it was inconvenient for him to be at home.
It was only after he had taken over Brother Leopard’s faction that he realized that Brother Leopard’s influence was quite far-reaching.
Stealing and robbing was merely child’s play compared to smuggling, drugs, and illegal arms dealing.
Winston discarded profitable trades such as drugs, for his pa.s.sion was arms trafficking.
He firmly believed that at any time, only by being powerful was he truly safe.
In this world, weapons were abilities, and that was why he wanted to master them.
Just as he was maniacally absorbing the elements of this new world, to his surprise, he received news that his mate had given birth.
Winston lifted the blanket and glanced at the bird’s egg, before instantly closing it again. He edged closer to Bai Qingqing and sniffed.
“So it’s an estrogen scent that only appeared during pregnancy… It was my fault for failing to recognize it. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have realized it only when you were about to give birth.” Winston’s tough face was filled with guilt.
Curtis also flicked out his tongue and made a serious note of this scent.
In the past, because he didn’t wish to have any more offspring, he didn’t make special attempts to distinguish the pregnancy scent and the scent when one was in heat. Now that he was planning to make his mate conceive again, he had to learn to distinguish the two.
“Haven’t you been taking birth control pills? Why did you still get pregnant?” Curtis stared suspiciously at Muir, his countenance terrifyingly dark.
He wasn’t like Bai Qingqing who believed that Muir didn’t have any selfish intentions.
Only then did Muir recall and hurriedly retrieved the box of medicine from the drawer. “The medicine is still here. ‘Birth control pill’ is written on it. I have no idea why Qingqing would get pregnant, either.”
Bai Qingqing took the box from him and looked. F*ck, she was supposed to take this d.a.m.n thing a few days in advance!
