Chapter 336: Young Cubs~
Bai Qingqing felt that she really wasn’t suitable to be coming into contact with males. It was best if she didn’t get too close with males anymore. They cheated too much. How many females who grew up on Earth would be able to hold their stand under the continual approaches from the beastmen?
“Quickly eat. We’ll continue on the way after you’re done eating.” Muir urged, his eyes filled with antic.i.p.ation.
Bai Qingqing took a bit of meat. She had to say that Muir’s meat roasting skill was really horrible. It was comparable to Curtis’s back then.
The surface of the meat was charred and it tasted a little bitter.
Bai Qingqing lowered her head and saw that the inside of the meat still had traces of blood, and her chewing speed slowed down. Bai Qingqing felt that her mouth was wet, and then after taking a look at the blood in the meat, she suddenly felt her stomach seething intensely.
Bai Qingqing covered her mouth, ran to the tree at the side, and started vomiting.
Muir’s face instantly changed and he quickly ran over, standing behind her at a loss. His hands raised up and put down a few times, and he was about to pat on her back when Bai Qingqing straightened up.
“Is it very bad?”
After Bai Qingqing vomited, Muir asked very carefully.
Bai Qingqing had spat out all the grapes from yesterday, and her mouth was feeling both sour and bitter right now. She said, “It isn’t cooked.”
Muir wore an expression of self-blame, s.n.a.t.c.hed the barbecued meat, and quickly walked over to the fire to continue roasting it.
This time around, it was fully cooked. However, after Bai Qingqing smelled the stinky charred smell, her stomach started to churn again. In the end, she still didn’t take another bite.
Muir could only find some fruits for her again.
When they set off once again, Muir changed back to the initial direction. His body had basically recovered, and his speed was comparable to his prime condition. He went on at his fastest speed.
Bai Qingqing was feeling very weak after not having eaten much for two days. Therefore, for the next meal, she tried to keep up her spirit as she guided Muir to roast the meat.
However, without any condiments, Bai Qingqing still felt very disgusted when she ate it.
She covered her mouth to force back the retching feeling. This feeling made her recall the common scenes in television shows—a reaction that everyone had when pregnant (only limited to television shows).
Bai Qingqing’s eyes suddenly opened big.
Thinking about it, it had been over a month since she last had that act with Parker.
During this time, her period didn’t come. It was because her stomach didn’t rise up rapidly as when she was having snake eggs. Her appet.i.te was normal as well. She had thought that this was due to the dry and hot weather that led to her period becoming irregular.
Bai Qingqing lowered her head to look at her abdomen, which was covered up by white snakeskin. She gently stroked it.
It couldn’t be. She was pregnant with leopard cups at this time?
“Are you very hungry?” Muir misunderstood Bai Qingqing’s action and said, looking anxious, “Get up. Let’s continue on the way. I’ll go look for the merfolks to trade salt with them when we reach Sea Cliff.”
At the mention of the merfolk tribe, Bai Qingqing recalled Jean. A hint of stubbornness, fury, as well as fear and anxiety, flashed on her face.
Shaking her head, Bai Qingqing said in a soft voice, “I feel that I’m pregnant with leopard cubs.”
Muir’s pitch-black eyes suddenly opened wide as he stared at Bai Qingqing’s stomach in a daze. His expression seemed to be that of both grief and joy, and his mouth opened a little, only speaking out after very long.
“Alright… I’ll take good care of you. You just be at ease with your pregnancy.”
Muir’s tone became a lot lighter as if he’d hurt Bai Qingqing if he were to speak too loudly.
The corners of Bai Qingqing’s lips curled up into a smile. She kept on praying that she wouldn’t get pregnant so fast, but at this moment, there was only joy and antic.i.p.ation in her heart.
A pregnancy of three months. If it had been over a month, then her stomach should show signs of pregnancy very soon.
This time around, Bai Qingqing didn’t refuse Muir’s kind intention. She nodded gratefully. “Thank… thank you.”
With her pregnancy, Muir was even more careful when taking care of her.
