Chapter 197: Giving Birth (2)
“Qingqing, are you not able to give birth? I, I, I’ll go and look for a doctor right away. Don’t die.” Parker almost crushed Bai Qingqing’s hand as he held it. The force he exerted emitted a strong sense of uneasiness.
“…” Bai Qingqing was rendered speechless. The pain in her stomach subsided a little, and she slowly realized that she might have mistaken something again.
“I haven’t started going into labor. Don’t you usually call for the doctor when a female is giving birth?”
Hearing that, Parker heaved a huge sigh of relief. He patted his chest and said, “You’ve given me a bad scare. Only those who have difficulty giving birth would call for a doctor. But even if a doctor was called, it’d still be useless. They’d still…”
Bai Qingqing’s face immediately turned a little paler. This meant that she could only rely on herself. If she was unable to give birth, it would be useless even if they were to call for a doctor.
Curtis threw a sideward glance toward Parker, then stroked Bai Qingqing’s stomach and consoled her. “Don’t worry. There won’t be issues in delivering snake eggs.”
Parker was suddenly struck by the realization and nodded vigorously, saying, “That’s right, that’s right, that’s right. The eggs are small and easy to lay. That’s good, that’s good…”
Feeling that it made sense, Bai Qingqing felt more at ease.
Bai Qingqing’s stomach started to seethe once again, and a layer of perspiration appeared on her face. She a.s.sumed a kneeling position, wrapping her arms around Curtis’s neck. This position immediately caused her stomach to have an intense plunging feeling. It was as if a piece of her flesh was being torn off from her.
Bai Qingqing gritted her teeth and bit her lips. “I can’t take it anymore! It’s so painful!”
Curtis said softly, “There’s no hurry, take it slow.”
“En.” Bai Qingqing took in a deep breath and attempted to exert force for the delivery. She had just exerted force when she immediately felt something sliding out.
She was stunned.
She had delivered it!
Parker’s nose twitched, and he flipped up Bai Qingqing’s animal skin to take a look. He then said excitedly, “One is delivered!”
The moonlight cast a layer of dim light in the room as an oval-shaped white egg landed on the gra.s.s pile. It was about the size of a goose egg, and there was a layer of translucent viscous liquid around it.
The animal skin was quickly covered up again.
Curtis didn’t even take a glance at the snake egg but grabbed Bai Qingqing’s head toward him with one hand. “Xiao Bai is so amazing.”
Bai Qingqing regained her senses. The delivery was very easy, but when she heard Curtis’s words, she felt a sense of pride and her lips uncontrollably curled up slightly.
Although she felt intense and unbearable pain in her stomach, the delivery was very simple. Bai Qingqing felt that it was better to deal with the painful things quickly rather than to drag it out. Thus, she bore with the pain, exerting force consecutively. The eggs were delivered one after another, the pain gradually turned into numbness, and the delivery became increasingly easy.
No one spoke in the house. There was only Bai Qingqing’s grunting when exerting force.
After a while, no more eggs came out. Bai Qingqing hung her arms around Curtis’s shoulder and lay weakly in his arms.
“It’s over?” Curtis tilted his head back and met Bai Qingqing’s eyes.
Bai Qingqing tried to sense it and then nodded, saying, “I think so.”
The entire delivery might have only been ten minutes or so, but Bai Qingqing’s entire body was drenched in perspiration. Her face was a little pale and she raised her head to look at Curtis, tears glistening in her eyes.
Curtis quickly wrapped Bai Qingqing up tightly with animal skin, and at the same time, transformed into his human form and walked toward Parker’s gra.s.s pile.
Parker wasn’t bothered that Curtis had invaded into his sleeping spot and quickly followed after them.
Laying in the clean gra.s.s nest, Bai Qingqing turned and looked toward Curtis’s nest. With her human vision, she was only able to see pitch-black.
