Chapter 1496: Barbecued Wing That Had Reached Her Mouth Flew Away
With things coming down to this, what Curtis was concerned more about was the future arrangements. He threw a sideways glance at Muir, then said to Bai Qingqing, “Muir already has descendants now. After you graduate, you don’t have to give birth to his children anymore.”
This was a good thing, too. Muir didn’t manage to get a female child, so he’d be excluded when they picked the one to get married to Snow.
Muir thought of what he had said to Bai Qingqing previously and immediately said, “I don’t mind.”
He looked very happy, taking a glance at Bai Qingqing, then at the dark gray egg on the bed. The joy in his eyes seemed to be overflowing.
Bai Qingqing smiled at him, then said to Curtis, “Of course. But… Curtis, can I give birth to your children last?”
Curtis’s expression didn’t change, but his gaze turned cold. He asked, “Why?”
“Erm… Laying snake eggs is too tiring. Moreover, you always get me pregnant from one attempt. This might not be the case for Parker and Winston. Therefore, I feel that there’s no rush for us. After I give birth to their children, I’ll be able to give birth to yours very quickly.” Bai Qingqing felt a little embarra.s.sed and turned her gaze away after saying this, looking at the egg as if nothing had happened.
The coldness and fury in Curtis’s eyes immediately dissipated. He hesitated for a short moment, then smiled and said, “Alright.”
This decision was very risky. Letting Parker and Winston go first would mean that they’d have a greater chance of getting married to Snow.
The children in this world would only have an aboveboard status if they were born by a married couple. If Parker or Winston were to get Bai Qingqing impregnated with a female child, then he, who was queued up behind them, wouldn’t have a chance anymore.
However, when he saw his mate’s pleading gaze and also her expression as if she was finding it troublesome, Curtis’s heart softened. He made a decision that was extremely disadvantageous for him, and after the initial impulse, he still didn’t feel any regret.
Curtis thought to himself that he was really poisoned. He had been hit by a poison called “Snow”.
Bai Qingqing immediately broke into a smile, holding Curtis’s hand and shaking it. “I knew that you’d agree to it. Thank you. You’re the best.”
Parker also thought of his advantage, and his jealousy toward Muir instantly turned into pity. Moreover, Curtis was queued up at the very last. This was great.
Now, Winston was his only compet.i.tor. He didn’t wish to fall behind.
“Qingqing,” Parker spoke up to interrupt the warm and loving exchange and asked, “Can I be second?”
Bai Qingqing immediately looked conflicted. Regardless of whom she allowed the first go, it’d be unfair to the latter.
Bai Qingqing looked toward Winston. he couldn’t bear to see his mate’s troubled expression and quickly said, “I’m fine with anything, as long as I can be together with you.”
Neither Parker nor Bai Qingqing was surprised by this result. However, Parker still heaved a sigh of relief, clenching his fist. This was great!
Bai Qingqing felt both apologetic and grateful toward Winston, saying “thank you” in her heart. However, she also expressed this feeling when she looked at him.
Winston was very satisfied, and his tough and cold face softened. He said in a deep voice, “I’ll go buy food. How about eating barbecued wings from K’s?”
It was Bai Qingqing’s mealtime, and she was hungry, to begin with. When she heard the food she liked, saliva was instantly secreted in her mouth.
Gulping her saliva, Bai Qingqing wanted to reply but was rejected by Curtis.
“I brought back prey from the mountains. The soup is already stewing in the pot. Parker, go and cook the rest of the dishes.”
Bai Qingqing’s face instantly fell. “Huh?” To think that the barbecued wings that had reached her mouth flew away!
Curtis rubbed her head and said, “There’s wild chicken soup as well as a wild boar and a few rabbits. How do you want them cooked?”
