As for Bai Qingqing, since that day, she felt as though she had transformed into the female lead of a weepy movie. Her everyday life summarized by five words and a punctuation mark: Tolerate tolerate tolerate tolerate tolerate!

Bella got increasingly overboard as the days went by. Not only did she order her to roast meat for her, she even made her wash her clothes for her now. The most irritating thing was hearing her shrill rants every single day.

“Bai Qingqing! When is my roast meat ready!”

Look, there she goes again.

Holding her five to six months’ pregnant tummy, Bai Qingqing said as she strode out, “There are no more condiments for roasting the meat. I’ll go out and find some.”


Even though she stood far away, Bai Qingqing could hear that “hmph.” She glumly exhaled a murky breath, before jogging out.

A male peac.o.c.k glanced at Bella, a helpless look in his eyes as he flew about gathering firewood and placing it in the spot where Bai Qingqing roasted meat.

Upon seeing this, Bella scoffed again. “She’s so ugly, yet males are helping her.”

Muir continued standing beside the river, a tough animal skin around his waist as he stood tall and straight, like a warrior who fought alone.

Muir’s face revealed a smile at the sight of Bai Qingqing. He briskly walked towards her.

“Slowly. Your tummy is so big already, don’t run so quickly. Do your feet hurt?”

Panting heavily, Bai Qingqing said with a smile, “It’s alright, I’m used to it. My feet don’t hurt either. The ground here is very clean.”

“Still, you need to move more slowly.” Muir wiped away the sweat and some of that purple ink on Bai Qingqing’s face with his fingertips. “You’re even sweating already.”

Bai Qingqing, too, touched her face and saw that her hand had turned purplish-red. She said, “Bring me more purple b.a.l.l.s next time. When the fire is burning, it gets too hot, so I keep sweating. There were several times when my disguise nearly came off. Thankfully, I always walked around with my head lowered, so no one noticed my face.”

“Burning fire?” Muir asked doubtfully. “Is the food I brought for you not enough?”

“Ah…” Bai Qingqing averted her gaze, before replying smoothly, “Sometimes I would cook when I have a sudden craving. It’s not because I’m hungry.”

Muir said, “Whatever you wish to eat I’ll make it for you.”

Bai Qingqing nodded her head repeatedly. “I have an especially good appet.i.te today, I’d like two servings of roast meat.”

“Okay.” Muir stroked Bai Qingqing’s head. “There’s no one around. Hurry up and wash your face.”

Bai Qingqing went off with a broad beam.

Awesome, she didn’t have to deliberately roast meat for Bella today. Yay!

“I feel that it’s about time Curtis arrives,” Bai Qingqing said casually.

Muir’s body shook violently before he got up instantly.

“How did you know that?”

Bai Qingqing cast a strange glance at Muir and asked as she shook the water off her hands, “Why are you showing such a strong reaction?”

Suppressing the panic in his heart, Muir maintained his calm expression and said, “It’ll be great if he’s here. I’m just happy for you.”

There was, however, no joy on his face. On the contrary, he wore a funeral expression as though newly bereft of both parents. Bai Qingqing thought that she had struck a painful chord and didn’t dare look at Muir any longer.

“Well, time,” Bai Qingqing said as she played with the water. “Curtis said he only needed half a month if he went to the seaside alone. We took seven days to get here, and we’ve spent eight days here since. It’s about time he reaches.”

Muir felt relieved. He had thought that someone from the peac.o.c.k tribe had spotted Curtis and told Bai Qingqing about it.

“We took different routes, so he might be held up for some time. But he should probably arrive within these few days.” There was a glow in Bai Qingqing’s eyes, full of antic.i.p.ation.

“Mm,” Muir responded as he continued to start the fire.

“As for Parker, he would probably take another half a month as he has lower endurance. It’ll be fine so long as he arrives before the babies are born.” Bai Qingqing counted with her fingers. The babies would be born in another month. One month should be sufficient for Parker, shouldn’t it? She prayed that he wouldn’t be late.
