Chapter 162: Decided to Give Birth
Parker said, “Don’t move about and just sit in the nest.”
Bai Qingqing said embarra.s.sedly, “Can you borrow some from your mother?”
“The season’s over. No females will keep cotton flowers. Those cotton flowers that weren’t plucked would have been drenched by the rain.” Parker thought for a moment, then said, “Why don’t you use animal skin?”
Bai Qingqing shook her head repeatedly. “Mmmm. Forget it.”
She dared not use animal’s skin, for fear of infection.
Then what should she do for the rest of the year? She would at least have to wait till next summer when there would be cotton flowers again. That thought made her feel despair.
Because of the torrential rain, the river current had become swift, and the waters murky. Water scooped from the river contained much mud, so if they wished to use water, they had to let it settle down for a long time. Curtis fetched half a basin of water using the stone basin from outside and brought it into the bedroom.
Curtis carried Bai Qingqing onto his tail.
The startled Bai Qingqing hurriedly held down Curtis’s hand. “I’ll clean myself.”
“Didn’t you say your tummy is aching?” Curtis gazed at Bai Qingqing’s countenance as he spoke.
Many girls suffered from low blood sugar in the mornings, and this was especially evident during their periods. Bai Qingqing’s face was much paler than usual, and even her lips were drained of the color of blood.
“I’m not used to it. My tummy isn’t very painful,” Bai Qingqing muttered.
“Stop fooling around.” Curtis looked away from her eyes, a subtle desolation flas.h.i.+ng by in the depths of his eyes. He forcefully used a wet towel to help Bai Qingqing wipe.
Bai Qingqing wore an exasperated look on her face. She totally didn’t dare to lower her head, so she could only look elsewhere, deciding what she didn’t see couldn’t hurt her.
The same old troubling issue!
Although Bai Qingqing was a good girl, she wasn’t a conservative prude. Previously, she didn’t accept Curtis because she didn’t regard him as her mate. Now that the two of them had lived together for such a long time, she felt it was time she tried to accept Curtis in the real sense.
If she got pregnant, it would also solve her period issue for several months. One bird killing several stones?
“Howl!” The soft moaning of a wild beast was heard outside the door. Bai Qingqing looked up. “Parker…”
Parker slurped down his saliva and, with much difficulty, s.h.i.+fted his gaze away from the snow-white skin to the face of that irritating snake beastman. Acting shamelessly, he said, “I have fur, my fur will get wet when I go hunting. Snake, you go and hunt. Let me take care of Qingqing. Plus, today it’s your turn to hunt, anyway.”
Curtis didn’t so much as spare him a glance. After was.h.i.+ng the towel, he said to Bai Qingqing, “Be cooperative. I haven’t wiped it clean.”
Bai Qingqing’s face was completely flushed now. “I think you’re more or less done. In any case, it’s going to get dirty in no time.”
“Howl—” Refusing to be ignored, Parker let out another low growl.
Only then did Curtis spare him a gaze. In a deep voice, he asked, “Why haven’t you gone out to hunt?”
The sharp-eyed Parker noticed the snake’s tail slightly curling up. This was the first sign of Curtis whipping him. Parker glared at him with his leopard eyes, before fleeing the scene right away.
Bai Qingqing and Curtis were the only ones left in the house now. She felt uncomfortable in such an atmosphere.
“It’s so cold.” Bai Qingqing rubbed her shoulders and made a move to get up to look for clothes. She had just moved when she felt her period exploding. She didn’t dare move anymore.
