Chapter 196: Giving Birth
Bai Qingqing had a satisfying meal of bamboo rice with steamed egg.
“If I were to eat vegetarian food, the babies will grow slower, right?” Bai Qingqing stroked her round stomach, a little afraid that Curtis would be angry. She said confidently, “When my appet.i.te gets better tomorrow, I’ll definitely eat a lot.”
Curtis pulled Bai Qingqing into his arms and gently stroked her stomach. “En.”
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief and leaned against him.
Parker cleaned up the place and saw that Bai Qingqing was almost falling asleep in Curtis’s arms. He quickly said, “Today should be my turn to sleep with Qingqing.”
“Hmmm?” Bai Qingqing murmured, then sleepily opened her eyes and crawled out of the gra.s.s pile. However, at the next instant, she was dragged back.
Curtis helped her to adjust into a more comfortable position, then coaxed her with a gentle voice. “Sleep.”
Bai Qingqing was very tired, and Curtis’s voice was like a lullaby. Her body fell limp and she closed her eyes as she hugged Curtis.
Parker couldn’t bear to wake Bai Qingqing up either. He didn’t say anything and walked over, wanting to carry her away.
“Let her sleep with me today,” Curtis said.
Parker couldn’t accept this. “Why?”
“She’s going to give birth soon.” Curtis’s lowered his voice as he gently patted Bai Qingqing’s back.
Bai Qingqing heard Curtis’s voice. But as she was tired, she didn’t try to understand what his words meant and merely just continued to sleep.
Parker’s eyes opened wide and his gaze landed on Bai Qingqing’s stomach. He said in a soft voice, “Why aren’t you telling her?”
“She’ll be nervous.” After saying that, Curtis transformed into his snake form and loosely wrapped around Bai Qingqing.
Parker didn’t continue to put up a fight. After taking a look at Bai Qingqing, seeing that she wasn’t showing any reaction, he also turned into his beast form and returned to his nest to sleep.
At midnight, three bright moons illuminated the world. The world in the early phase of the cold season was very quiet. There was only the sound of the breeze blowing against the tree leaves.
A soft moan broke the silence in the night.
Bai Qingqing curled her body, and her dainty brows furrowed slightly, occasionally letting out soft moans.
Curtis immediately raised his head, taking on his human form. “Xiao Bai.”
Parker opened his eyes vigilantly when he heard the sounds. He ran over to the snake nest and took a look. “Howl—?”
Curtis called out a few times before Bai Qingqing slowly woke up, rubbing her eyes.
“My stomach hurts a lot.” As Bai Qingqing said this, a series of contractions took place in her stomach. The intense pain caught her off-guard and she let out a scream.
Curtis hugged Bai Qingqing, helping her to sit up. His hands grabbed onto her loose waistband and tugged at it to break it. He then took off her pants, using the animal skin at the side to cover her legs.
Bai Qingqing’s legs curled up from the cold. The intense pain in her stomach was unbearable, and she was stunned.
Was, was, was she going into labor?
Ahhhhh! That was so sudden! Would there be enough time to call for a doctor in the middle of the night?
Curtis said, “Don’t be scared. I’m here.”
“I’m here too.” Parker’s voice rang out not far away in the darkness, his voice sounding even more nervous than Bai Qingqing. “Qingqing, have you given birth? How many of them?”
When Bai Qingqing heard Curtis’s voice, she felt a lot more at ease. After hearing Parker’s voice, she then felt speechless.
F*ck! I just woke up, how am I able to give birth? Do you think that giving birth is as simple as peeing in bed?
No matter how speechless she felt, Bai Qingqing was unable to say anything to rebut his words. She took a few breaths, then said, “It’s so painful! Quickly help me look for a doctor!”
Parker’s expression turned into horror and he pounced fiercely next to Bai Qingqing.
