Chapter 315: Have Another Nest of Snakes?
Parker felt very envious when he saw how Bai Qingqing treated Curtis. He immediately said, “It’s so rare that it’s raining. Let her play a little longer today.”
Curtis didn’t say anything else.
The beastmen kept on howling until the moons reached the peak. The three different colored “moons” appeared clearly in the night sky. The beastmen still hadn’t had enough, but the faint clouds had already drifted away, and there was no way that they would return no matter how much they cried out.
“Howl!” [I want to continue howling for another day!]
“Howl—” [This feels too good!]
This was the rain that the beastmen had called for themselves, and they were more proud of it than if they were to beg others for it. The females and children at home would definitely think of them as heroes, and their mates would definitely love them even more.
This was what all beastmen were thinking at this moment.
After being in the rain for half a day and half a night, Bai Qingqing caught a cold without any surprise. Both Parker and Curtis quickly brought her home.
They pa.s.sed by a waterfall on their way back. The rain had caused the waterfall to start flowing again. All sorts of animals were crowding around the lake, greedily licking at the muddy water in the lake. Despite that many of them were connected by a food chain relations.h.i.+p, no fighting took place.
When the three of them reached home, Curtis placed Bai Qingqing on the bed, taking off her clothes quickly and wrapping her up with a blanket.
“If you aren’t feeling well, why didn’t you say it earlier?” Curtis reprimanded her angrily, but seeing how weak she looked, he couldn’t bear to scare her too much.
Bai Qingqing curled up under the blanket. Despite the hot weather, she didn’t feel warm when covered under such a thick blanket. She had really caught a cold.
“It’s been so long since I’ve come into contact with water, so I wanted to have a dip for a little longer. Wasn’t it the same for you?” Bai Qingqing wriggled over to Curtis like a caterpillar. “Was it comfortable?”
Curtis’s breathing paused, and his expression was cold as usual. However, his overly pale skin had exposed the flush on his face. “Didn’t you want to give birth to cubs for the next time?”
Bai Qingqing glared with wide-open eyes. “I’m only asking if you felt comfortable having a dip in the water. What are you thinking?”
Curtis chose to ignore Bai Qingqing’s explanation and just took it as if she was shy. He said, “Parker is too useless. To think that he hasn’t gotten you pregnant yet. d.a.m.n!”
Parker happened to enter with a bowl of ginger soup, but he paused in his footsteps. It was only after Curtis looked toward him that Bai Qingqing noticed that Parker was here.
Bai Qingqing glared at Curtis, then quickly said, “What did you cook? I’m famished. Quickly bring it to me.”
“I’ve boiled a short-winged bird, but it’ll take a little longer. Finish up this yellow root soup first. He threw a cold glance toward Curtis, then said, “Keep an eye on the fire. I’ll go to the Camel Hump Valley to call for a doctor.”
“No need.” Bai Qingqing smiled. A faint flush appeared on her pale face under the ginger soup’s steam. “I’ll be fine after getting some sleep. Females aren’t as fragile as you guys think.”
Curtis had taken care of Bai Qingqing when she was sick before, and this time around, it wasn’t as serious. Therefore, he wasn’t very anxious and said to Parker, “Go and cook more food. Snow likes to eat what you cook. If she still doesn’t get better tomorrow, then we’ll call for a doctor.”
Since Curtis was saying this, Parker went back to the kitchen to cook.
They had to continue to conserve water, but today was a day worth celebrating. Knowing that Bai Qingqing wanted to eat noodles, Parker used the bird soup to cook up a bowl of handmade noodles for her with rich toppings.
It had been very long since the last time Bai Qingqing had eaten piping hot food with soup. Her appet.i.te was piqued and she only put down her chopsticks after she was so full that she couldn’t drink another mouthful of soup.
