Chapter 199: Curtis’s Birth
“Don’t you remember giving birth yesterday?” Parker asked excitedly and pointed to Curtis, who was at the side protecting the eggs. “They’re with him over there.”
“Sss~” Curtis looked up at Bai Qingqing with joy in his red eyes.
Bai Qingqing suddenly recalled what happened at midnight the night before, and her expression changed. She looked down at her belly, then at Curtis. “Let me see…”
Curtis pulled his snake tail away to reveal a basket of white eggs.
Bai Qingqing walked towards the basket with a stunned look on her face and crouched down beside it. “I gave birth to these…?”
Although Bai Qingqing had been pregnant for more than a month, she still couldn’t believe her eyes as she looked at the eggs. As her fingers gently brushed against one of them, which were slightly cool to the touch, she instantly felt a connection between her and this life, and her heart softened.
“I gave birth to this egg!” Bai Qingqing repeated, this time more firmly.
Curtis smiled gently as he looked at Bai Qingqing.
Snow’s so cute. She completely forgot that she gave birth to these eggs last night after waking up.
Parker entered the room while carrying a bowl of steaming hot rice with accompanying dishes. He called out loudly, “Qingqing, quickly come and eat. You’ve lost weight, you need to quickly gain it back.”
Bai Qingqing turned around and smiled at him. Now that her youthful baby fat was gone, she had a beautiful oval-shaped face and her slightly downturned eyes appeared larger.
Her current face shape met modern beauty standards, but in the world of beastmen, where females were shown an insane amount of affection, she was considered worryingly thin.
Parker looked at her worriedly as he scooped up some rice and brought it to her mouth. “Quickly gain back your weight. I don’t even dare to let you give birth when you’re like this.”
Bai Qingqing covered the spoon with her mouth, then looked toward the eggs as she chewed on the rice. “I think I’m fine the way I am now.” She smiled again and continued, “They really can eat. I didn’t think they’d turn out to be so small.”
Curtis quietly looked at Bai Qingqing. Seeing that she was so entranced by their children that she paid no attention to the leopard, he wasn’t sure whether to feel happy or sad. He would be just as neglected, after all.
As Parker fed Bai Qingqing the food bit by bit, she poked Curtis and said, “Quickly transform into a human. What should we name them?”
It’ll be hard to come up with names when there are so many of them.
Bai Qingqing suddenly thought of something and shouted, “Ah! Which one’s the oldest? I didn’t take note.”
Curtis’s upper body transformed into a human. He then teased her. “Can’t remember after waking up?”
Bai Qingqing’s brows knitted together as she shook her head honestly. “I can’t. I can’t even tell the difference between any of them.”
“Males come up with their own names after reaching adulthood. There’s so many of them, anyway. Let’s not give them names.” Parker blew on the rice on the spoon before bringing it to Bai Qingqing’s lips.
Bai Qingqing turned around and ate a mouthful of rice before asking, “Do you guys have many brothers?”
Parker replied, “We don’t have it as good as snake beastmen. There are only a few cubs in every litter. I’m the eldest in my litter.”
Parker said the last sentence with pride and purposefully glanced at Bai Qingqing.
Females liked the eldest in a litter of cubs as they were usually the strongest.
Bai Qingqing didn’t understand what Parker was trying to imply. She asked Curtis, “What about you?”
“I have a lot of brothers,” Curtis replied briefly.
Bai Qingqing continued to look at Curtis curiously. “And?”
Curtis could only reply, “Not long after I hatched from my egg, our mother died due to illness. After that, our father didn’t take care of us.”
