Chapter 283: Eudora Wants to Go Upstairs
As Bai Qingqing walked out of the room and breathed in the fresh air outside, she realized there was a stench inside. She sneaked a peek at Curtis, then hurriedly opened the door.
“Didn’t Winston come up to sleep?” Bai Qingqing asked as she glanced at Winston’s room.
Curtis pinned Bai Qingqing down on the stone chair and combed her hair using the wooden comb Bai Qingqing brought from the modern ages. “He’s on the fifth level accompanying the little snakes.”
Bai Qingqing nodded and thought to herself: Seems like this thing can’t be done often—every time we do it, it causes quite a stir in the family. Thankfully, Curtis and Parker generally wouldn’t ask for it.
After Curtis finished combing Bai Qingqing’s hair, he stroked her gently. “The food is more or less ready. I’ll go and bring it over for you.”
“You’ve already cooked? Then why did you ask Parker to go out and hunt?” Bai Qingqing glanced at Curtis. His gaze softened, and he said, “To let him vent off the excess energy.”
Embarra.s.sed and awkward, Bai Qingqing lowered her head and fiddled with her fingers.
After Curtis left, Bai Qingqing instantly revealed her true form, slumping lifelessly like a lump of noodles on the chair.
“My waist feels so sore!” Bai Qingqing ma.s.saged her waist with a frown. Parker was to be blamed for this—he had moved about so much, every time they finished having s.e.x she would feel really sore. Even copulating with Curtis for one day and one night didn’t make her feel quite as sore.
Bai Qingqing got up and moved her muscles a little. She accidentally saw a few carved marks on the rails, so she walked towards that.
When was it damaged? She had never seen this in the past.
There were only two ants crawling on the floor, and they stopped in their tracks when they moved past the spot underneath the carved marks.
Feeling bored, Bai Qingqing squatted down to look at the ants.
She saw the ants touching the ground with their feelers, after which one ant fell lifelessly to the ground following the other.
“Eh?” Seeing that the ants weren’t getting up after a long while, she reached out and touched the ants gingerly with the fingernail on her index finger. The ants appeared to have dried up in the wind with stiff bodies and were completely unresponsive.
Bai Qingqing edged closer to the ground and discovered that the color of the slab stone was slightly darker, as though it was stained by something.
What’s that thing? Is it poison? Or did these two ants simply die here coincidentally?
With those thoughts in mind, Bai Qingqing reached out towards the ground again.
“What are you looking at?”
The sudden voice from behind was deep and somewhat terrifying. Bai Qingqing, completely absorbed in those ants, was startled and let out a yelp.
However, she quickly realized it was Curtis and calmed down. She was prepared to get up when she felt something gripping her arm and she was forcibly lifted to her feet.
“Go on and eat,” Curtis said with one hand holding the food tray and the other gripping Bai Qingqing. As he turned around, he kicked those two tiny ants away.
Bai Qingqing turned back and glanced at that slab stone. She had wanted to tell Curtis about it, when she looked up and saw his expression, causing her to swallow the words.
Did Curtis sound a little anxious just now? Or was she imagining things?
The obedient Bai Qingqing was hauled back into the bedroom. By now, the odd smell in the bedroom had dissipated. Bending over the stone table, she started to gobble up the food.
Humming a song in her off-key tone, Eudora strolled leisurely in the stone castle. If one didn’t know better, one would think that she was the owner of this house.
She strolled level by level, and she had just finished viewing the fourth level and was prepared to head upstairs. She didn’t seem to care about the fact that there were two tiger beastmen standing guard at the entrance of the staircase.
“Halt.” One of the tiger beastmen stopped her in a gentle voice. “Upstairs is His Majesty’s private territory. n.o.body is allowed to go in without his permission.”
Because of the tiger king, Eudora was a little fearful of the tiger beastmen. However, when she saw the gentle att.i.tude of the tiger beastman towards her, the panic in her heart vanished completely. “I don’t care, I want to go up. I want to look down from the highest spot in this castle.”
