Chapter 1564: Why Are You Guys Calling Her Mommy, Too?
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Seeing that the other two eagle beastmen were acting all friendly with their sister, Mu Ya gave it some thought before saying to Bai Zhenbei with a solemn expression, “Brother will buy you new clothes.”
“Alright, let’s go and eat first.” Bai Qingqing took a look at the time. It was already three. If they were to set off at four, they’d probably reach the city around seven to eight. They could still shop for a few hours.
Finally able to eat at the dining table, the three young men’s attention was instantly drawn away. They ran toward the dining hall.
Bai Qingqing and Bai Zhenbei walked behind them. Bai Zhenbei stayed close to her mommy and asked in a soft voice, “Who on earth are they? Why haven’t I seen them before?”
Bai Qingqing replied softly, “They’re your older brothers. They’ve been studying abroad and have only just come back.”
“When will they be leaving?” Bai Zhenbei then asked the question she was the most concerned about.
Bai Qingqing said, “They won’t be leaving. We’ll be living together in the future.”
“Huh?” Bai Zhenbei instantly wore a bitter expression.
Although Bai Zhenbei didn’t know that they were her brothers whom she was related to by blood, she was sharp and sensed her mommy’s adoration toward them. It might affect her status.
Bai Zhenbei was a snake beastman’s descendant, after all. Although she looked docile and seemed quiet, she had the snake beastmen’s domineering disposition. She was very possessive. She didn’t want the mommy she loved the most to be s.n.a.t.c.hed by three brothers who had suddenly popped out of nowhere.
Bai Qingqing had spoken to Parker and Muir earlier, and the meal was just prepared. The family sat down around the big dining table.
Parker was still serving dishes. Muir walked over to the door and called the tiger and leopard children back.
The tiger and leopard children, as usual, each had a large basin to themselves and ate on the ground. The young eagles each held a pair of chopsticks, feeling troubled.
“Mom, must we use chopsticks?” Mu Hai asked, feeling troubled after he dropped food off his chopsticks for the fifth time.
“Yes, you must. Learn slowly.” Bai Qingqing said softly as she helped him to pick a piece of meat.
Bai Zhenbei suddenly asked her angrily, “Why are they calling you mommy, too?”
“Uhh…” Bai Qingqing was stumped.
“It’s because we don’t have a mommy, so we’re calling your mom mommy. They’re all mommies, anyway.” Mu Ya, who seemed to talk the least, was the first one to speak up, saying seriously.
Bai Qingqing looked at her eagle children apologetically, not reb.u.t.ting. She silently agreed to this explanation.
Making one lie would require 100 more lies to round up the first one. Bai Qingqing finally experienced that.
Maybe they had to tell Huahua everything after she came of age. Right now, she was still young and her perspectives weren’t fully developed. Their family model wasn’t good for Huahua’s life in this world.
“Mommy is my mommy,” Bai Zhenbei said unhappily, then lowered her head and ate her food, looking like she didn’t want to talk to anyone.
Bai Qingqing felt helpless and said gently, “Huahua, be good.”
Seeing that the young eagle beastmen were having great difficulties in eating, Bai Qingqing’s heart ached even more for them. She went to the kitchen and took three metal forks over, rescuing them from the dining table.
After the meal, those who needed to go back took the big van home.
This time around, the tiger children were brought back too so that they wouldn’t be taken away forcibly.
The remaining four small and one big leopard beastmen stayed by themselves in the villa, watching over the zoo. Their gazes looked very lonely as they watched the van drive off.
On the van, Bai Zhenbei said in a roundabout way to express her dissatisfaction with her three new older brothers.
However, the three big males didn’t get their sister’s repulsion. All of them patted their legs, inviting their sister to sit on their laps.
“It’s those two tigers’ fault.. They take up too much s.p.a.ce.”
