Chapter 292: Feeling Unwell
Bai Qingqing casually looked up and faintly saw a black shadow darting into the forest. Before she could see it, it had already disappeared. She didn’t think much about it, lowered her head, and continued to rub the wheat.
Winston’s hands were big and the grains fell off from his hands making “whoos.h.i.+ng” sounds. Very soon, a pile of wheat was gathered together.
Fragments and chaff kept dropping on Bai Qingqing, and she scratched while she went on with the work. Without her noticing, her exposed skin was all covered in pink scratch marks. These scratch marks stood out a lot on her snow-white and tender skin.
Winston didn’t really dare to look at Bai Qingqing. It took him a lot of effort to summon his courage and sneak a glance at her, only to have his countenance change drastically.
“What happened to your body?” Winston’s coa.r.s.e hands locked onto Bai Qingqing’s shoulders, and his tiger eyes were wide-open as he scanned Bai Qingqing’s body.
“Hmmm?” Bai Qingqing threw a glance at Winston, then scratched her neck with her hand that was covered in wheat ear dust. “It’s nothing. It’s just very itchy.”
Parker’s ears twitched and he immediately straightened his body. When he saw the abnormality on Bai Qingqing’s body from afar, he threw the stone blade aside and came running over.
Winston carried Bai Qingqing up and was about to leave when he was stopped by Parker.
“Qingqing!” When Parker saw her body, he panicked and was rough when he s.n.a.t.c.hed her from Winston’s hands. He held her tightly in his arms and questioned angrily, “What happened to her?”
Winston stood there, at a loss. “I don’t know.”
Parker carried Bai Qingqing horizontally, speaking abnormally gently to her, “I’ll bring you to a doctor right away.”
Bai Qingqing was stunned by them. She scratched again and gasped when she felt a piercing pain as sweat dripped into her wounds. She said, “Don’t, don’t, don’t. I’m just itchy. It must be from the wheat. Just bring me to the river to take a bath.”
“Alright, but we’ll go see a doctor first.” Saying that Parker ran toward the City of Beastmen.
As females had never done any farm work, both Parker and Winston were at a loss. They had no idea if Bai Qingqing’s guess was right.
Parker’s face was covered in perspiration, his tanned and handsome face glistening. Bai Qingqing raised her hand to wipe off his sweat for him, but the heat her fingertips came into contact with took her by surprise. This temperature was comparable to when Parker was in heat.
“Bring me to the river. I want to take a bath,” Bai Qingqing said decisively, twisting her body to protest.
Parker lowered his head and looked at Bai Qingqing anxiously. “Is it very itchy?”
“En.” Bai Qingqing nodded.
Parker hesitated for a while, before turning to run toward the river. “Then hurry up.”
Bai Qingqing replied with an “En” as she started thinking of how she could get Parker into the water as well.
Winston followed right behind them. The wheat field that had been viewed in high regard earlier on was now completely neglected. Thankfully, those small birds hadn’t dared to appear yet.
When they arrived at the river, Parker just placed Bai Qingqing into the water.
Bai Qingqing let out a scream. “My clothes are all wet now!”
“We’ll go back and change,” Parker said that as he scooped up some water, rinsing on her chest.
Bai Qingqing shuddered as she was drenched by the chilling water on such a hot day.
Even her tube top was wet. She had no choice but to go home now.
Bai Qingqing was at a loss for words. She suddenly grabbed Parker’s hand, tugged hard, and, catching him unaware, dragged him into the water.
When Parker saw how spirited Bai Qingqing was, he heaved a sigh of relief, forcibly suppressing the fear and anxiety he was feeling, and said, “Do you want me to help you wash up? Turn your back over. I’ll wash your back for you. You can quickly wash the front.”
Parker was very clumsy, and Bai Qingqing’s back hurt from all the rubbing. She curled her body up and tried to dodge him. “I’ll wash myself up. I don’t itch anymore, don’t worry. You should clean yourself up as well.”
“You’re already like this, so how can you be alright?” Parker held onto her body and rubbed against her skin with a gentler force.
The two of them behaved very intimately in the water, and Winston, anxiously pacing to and fro by the sh.o.r.e, suddenly stopped in his track.
“I’ll go call for the doctor first.” After saying that, Winston took off his animal skin skirt, turned into a white tiger, and ran off.
