Chapter 351: Start of Part-Time Job Life
“How can you doubt my feelings toward you? You’re so beautiful. How can such an ugly female compare against you?”
Alva glared at Bai Qingqing and then looked toward Bella again. “There’s no way that I’d take a liking to her! If you don’t believe me, I’ll throw her out immediately.”
Bai Qingqing’s heart skipped a beat and she quickly looked up.
It was one thing to be forced to watch others showing off their love, but she hadn’t expected that beastmen would go back on their words as well. If she were chased away, with Muir not around, what could she do?
“Hmph, forget it.”
Bella’s words relieved her. She held onto her stomach and leaned against the railing.
Bella’s gaze landed on Bai Qingqing’s skirt, and she raised her finger to point at her. “You ought to give us something for staying here. Your clothes look quite nice. Give them to me.”
Bai Qingqing hugged tightly onto the package wrapped in leaves, looking troubled.
If she were to take off the skirt, she’d only be left with her underwear. She wasn’t wearing a tube top either. Moreover, the tube top no longer fit either.
Alva said impatiently, “Quickly take it off. I’ll give you a new animal skin later on.”
Bai Qingqing opened up the package she was holding and took out the tube top. She walked to the door and handed it to Bella without even raising her head.
“This and the clothes I’m wearing are both made from snakeskin. I’ll give you this. The reason I’m wearing a long one is that my stomach has gotten big and I want to know how ugly I look. If you were to wear it, it’d hide how beautiful your body is.”
Bella felt that it made sense and took the tube top happily, immediately turning over to change into it.
Bai Qingqing heaved a big sigh of relief. She managed to escape from this predicament. She hoped that Curtis wouldn’t feel angry after finding out.
Uhh… She should feel worried about Bella instead. Curtis wasn’t a generous male.
Bella was flat-chested, but her body was a lot fatter than Qingqing, so the tube top fitted nicely. She quite liked it and tugged at Alva excitedly, asking him if she looked nice.
Alva looked at her in adoration, speaking in an intimate tone, “It looks nice. You look nice no matter what you wear.”
Bai Qingqing shuddered. She held onto her stomach and looked up toward the sky, feeling speechless.
Ahhh, she really wanted to fight alongside Muir instead!
“Hey, didn’t you say that you were going to peel pine nuts for me? Come quickly.”
Alva had never treated Bai Qingqing with any courtesy. He walked out of the wooden house and said, wearing a displeased expression, “Help me to peel pine nuts for Bella first. I’ll go look for food for you.”
“Alright.” Bai Qingqing immediately agreed. It was very normal for her to use labor in exchange for food. She had no complaints.
Alva took a strange look at Bai Qingqing, sighing in his heart. This female was really docile. It was a pity that she was too ugly. Otherwise, he’d quite like her. Her scent didn’t seem bad either.
There was a big fruit sh.e.l.l in front of Bella, filled with plump pine nuts. These pine nuts were a lot bigger than what Bai Qingqing had seen before, with each of them being the size of a fingernail.
The floor was put together from wooden rods. Bai Qingqing sat down next to Bella and picked up a pine nut. Seeing that there weren’t any openings on them, she asked, “How do I peel this?”
Bella looked up and Bai Qingqing followed her gaze to see two rocks. She immediately understood. She put a pine nut on the big rock and used the smaller one to gently smash down on it.
“Be quick. I’m famished.” Bella urged.
“En,” Bai Qingqing answered softly.
Smas.h.i.+ng the pine nuts required an accurate control of strength. If she used too much strength, the pine nut would be crushed. If she used too little strength, she wouldn’t be able to pry it open. After trying a few, Bai Qingqing found the trick to it and was even able to keep up some small talk.
“Do you just eat pine nuts when you’re hungry?”
