Chapter 379: Sandpit
It was a novel thing to her that such natural phenomena took place very often.
“So it has nothing to do with me?”
Muir replied, “En, those are all lies! You just take care and give birth to a nest of chubby babies.”
Bai Qingqing rubbed her eyes forcefully; they still felt sore and swollen. Even after having gotten some sleep, they were still a little puffy.
She had cried so embarra.s.singly earlier. She was someone who was going to be giving birth a second time. She mustn’t be so embarra.s.sing in the future!
“En, thank you.” Bai Qingqing looked and gave Muir a grateful smile.
As Bai Qingqing got to feel the existence of her children, the suppressed feeling that had been acc.u.mulating in her heart was all swept away. She felt that even her chest felt a lot lighter.
Muir’s expression also became relaxed as he said, “I was anxious to look for you earlier and had thrown all the food outside. I’ll go pick it up.”
“I want to go too. I should move a little. It’ll be good for the children.”
Muir carried Bai Qingqing and went down the tree. The food was still on the floor and Muir picked it up. Other than pine nuts, there were also hard olive-shaped fruits and a few green coconuts.
Muir first opened up a coconut for Bai Qingqing and pa.s.sed it to her.
Bai Qingqing drank a few big mouthfuls before picking up a hard fruit and asked, “What’s this? It’s so hard. Can it be eaten?”
Muir smiled and took the fruit from Bai Qingqing’s hand. He pinched it gently and the fruit’s sh.e.l.l, hard as a rock when Bai Qingqing was holding it, shattered.
Bai Qingqing only recognized that it was a pecan after seeing the brain-shaped brown flesh inside.
These things were expensive and she hardly had a chance to eat them. She liked them a lot.
“So that’s it. I like to eat this,” Bai Qingqing said in surprise, picking up a piece of the shattered nut and popping it in her mouth.
Muir wasn’t any less surprised than Bai Qingqing was, and he looked at her expression in antic.i.p.ation.
Bai Qingqing chewed on it and the elation on her face became a little faint.
Although it didn’t taste bad, it was different from the taste in her memories. The texture was completely different as well. It wasn’t crunchy at all.
The ones sold had all been toasted, so this should be how raw pecans tasted.
Bai Qingqing asked excitedly, “Can you get me a pot? I want to toast these nuts.”
“You’re so mischievous.” Muir tapped her nose and said affectionately, “Then I’ll go make one from stone. Do you want to stay here and play or should I send you up?”
His action was a little affectionate and Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but turn her head away and walk toward the river. “I’ll cool down by the river. You can go ahead.”
Muir looked at her back view and said, “Alright.”
After Bai Qingqing’s stomach got bigger, she started to frequently need to go to the washroom. It was the same when she was pregnant with the snake babies. Bai Qingqing almost couldn’t hold it in anymore now that it had been a few hours since she had gone to the washroom. The reason she came down was that she wanted to go to the sandpit.
Putting the food down by a tree, Bai Qingqing held onto her stomach and quickly walked toward the sandpit.
There was a need to introduce the peac.o.c.k tribe’s sandpit. As they were located close to the sea, there was plenty of sand around. Therefore, the sand in the pits here was always very clean.
However, this was a public sandpit, so females would come over at any moment. Males rarely came. They took care of their businesses when they went out to look for food. However, when they were in the village, they would also use it.
Even with the many plants in the surroundings acting as s.h.i.+elds, Bai Qingqing was still on tenterhooks every time she visited it.
She entered the sandpit, took a few looks around, and then quickly went about her with business.
The plants at the side let out rustling sounds, causing Bai Qingqing, in the middle of urinating, to forcibly stop it, lift her pants, and stand up.
The plants didn’t shake too badly, so Bai Qingqing guessed that it should be a female.
