Chapter 295: So He Was Shedding Skin

It had been many years since he shed skin. His first shedding after becoming mates with Bai Qingqing had caught him unaware. By the time he realized it, it was too late for him to find a place to shed his skin.

Curtis didn’t trust anyone and didn’t wish to expose his weakness. He had been planning on shedding his skin secretly at home, and it hadn’t been easy for him to hang on until both Bai Qingqing and Parker weren’t around. He had just started shedding his skin when Bai Qingqing came back.

His skin was starting to shed, but he bore with the piercing pain all over his body to stop the process. When he heard Bai Qingqing saying that she liked his snakeskin, Curtis finally couldn’t hold back any longer.


Curtis used his tongue to press against Bai Qingqing’s stomach, then curled her up with his tail, sending her out the door.

“Hey, hey, what are you doing?” Bai Qingqing headed into the room immediately after landing on the ground. Curtis rapidly drew his tail back and closed the door with a “bang”.

Should I tell Snow? Would she take the chance to kill me?

She won’t! Snow said that she liked me. She isn’t like other snake female beastmen! She wouldn’t bear to kill me!

“Don’t come in. I’m planning on shedding my skin. It might hurt you.” Curtis’s voice rang out from the secondary bedroom.

If Snow didn’t love him, it didn’t seem to matter even if he were to die.

Curtis had his back against the wooden door, the skin all over his body wrinkling up like that of an elderly person a 100 years old.

Snake beastmen didn’t have a good vision, to begin with, and when they were shedding their skin, they would almost be unable to see anything at all. The only reason Curtis was able to locate Bai Qingqing’s finger accurately earlier on was only that he was sensitive toward temperature.

Bai Qingqing’s mouth opened wide and she pressed her hand against the door. Oh G.o.d! Curtis is shedding his skin!

“Take your time. I’ll be waiting outside for you,” Bai Qingqing said. His reply was rustling rubbing sounds.

Bai Qingqing sat down against the door, looking like a husband waiting outside the door for his wife to give birth.

The rubbing sounds kept on ringing out inside, and occasionally, sounds of things being knocked over could be heard. Just from hearing the sounds inside, Bai Qingqing knew that shedding skin wasn’t an easy process. Her heart wrenched up uncontrollably.

Time pa.s.sed by slowly and the sun gradually s.h.i.+fted toward the west. The light rays turned dark.

There weren’t any more sounds in the room. Bai Qingqing kept her ear to the door and listened for quite a while before asking softly, “Curtis, are you done?”

It was silent in the room. Dead silence.

Bai Qingqing panicked and pushed the door hard. However, at this moment, the door was suddenly pulled open from the inside, and Bai Qingqing stumbled forward, knocking into an icy cold but tall embrace.

“You’ve been waiting for me all this while?” A low and gentle male voice rang out above her head. Bai Qingqing raised her head in pleasant surprise, and she immediately went into a daze.

Curtis still had a pale and gentle face. However, there was now an indescribable exquisiteness. Although he looked beautiful, he wasn’t feminine. It was a beauty that wasn’t distinguished by gender.

If it could be said that the him in the past was like a vampire from the western mythology, then the current him was like a vampire standing under the sun, emitting a glow that made it hard for others to turn away their gazes.

“You don’t recognize me anymore?” There was a hint of teasing in Curtis’s voice. Only G.o.d knew how pleasantly surprised he was.

At this moment, Curtis developed a lifetime strange habit—wanting his mate to keep watch over him as he shed his skin. He wanted to repeat the experience of his female’s love for him, even if it meant that he had to put his life on the line as a gamble.

“I…” Bai Qingqing blinked hard. Look at you, look at you! You’ve been mates for a year and already have a bunch of kids! Why are you still so smitten?

However, when she looked at Curtis’s handsome and flawless face again, Bai Qingqing’s gaze lost focus once more.

Curtis lifted her chin, lowered his head, and kissed her.
