Chapter 389 Three Little Cubs
Kitten-like cries kept on ringing out incessantly in the house. Alva was laying outside with his stomach down on a branch, looking toward the house. There was an unprecedented softness in his heart.
It was good. She had finally given birth. It’d be even more convenient for him to woo her in the future.
Muir took the animal skin that Bai Qingqing used to wash her face and walked up to the bed, carefully avoiding the leopard cubs.
As the cubs’ bodies were too small and soft, Bai Qingqing almost didn’t bleed at all. It was just that her lower body was drenched from the amniotic fluid. Muir squatted down next to her, wiping her body down with the animal skin.
Bai Qingqing moved her heavy body. “Can you help me to boil a pot of hot water? I’d like to clean up.”
“Alright.” Muir placed the animal skin to the side, carrying the leopard cubs to her arms before he walked out of the door in huge strides. It was apparent how agitated he felt from his heavy and anxious footsteps.
Bai Qingqing took a look at him, then turned her gaze back to the leopard cubs.
Bai Qingqing touched one of the leopard cub’s heads. It was still wet and was a little dirty.
It took her quite a while before she managed to pick up the animal skin Muir had placed at the side, then she meticulously and gently cleaned their bodies.
The leopard cubs were incredibly tender, and they kept on opening their mouths and crying out while being wiped down. Their mouths were short and wide, with bare pink gums inside, looking a little like hippopotamuses.
That made Bai Qingqing a little worried. It couldn’t have been the effect of her human genes, right?
Humans had flatter faces than leopards. She hoped that the children wouldn’t grow up to be ugly.
The leopard cubs squeezed toward Bai Qingqing. She thought of something and suddenly felt nervous.
Were the cubs hungry?
Bai Qingqing lifted a young cub, blinking her big s.h.i.+mmering eyes and exchanging glances with him.
“Howl— Howl-” The young cub looked at his mother, crying out even louder.
Bai Qingqing took in a deep breath, pulled down her clothes, and carried the young cub.
“Go on and eat.” Bai Qingqing seemed as if she had gone all out.
The young cub sniffed at his mother’s chest but continued to cry out.
He was probably not hungry yet.
Bai Qingqing moved him away, not knowing if she was relieved or disappointed. She hugged the three cubs. “Then let’s sleep. Be good and go to sleep.”
The three leopard cubs squeezed together, found a suitable position, and started to doze
Bai Qingqing watched them and gradually felt sleepy as well. She yawned and closed her eyes.
When Muir came in with the hot water, Bai Qingqing was already fast asleep. The three leopard cubs were also sleeping very well, their small stomachs undulating upward and downward.
He smiled, moving even softly. He washed the animal skin and wiped down Bai Qingqing’s body, doing it so gently like Bai Qingqing treated her children.
He was thankful that he didn’t let Parker come over. Otherwise, this chance to take care of Qingqing would go to him. He was satisfied that he’d be able to have such a blissful memory in this lifetime.
However, he mustn’t drag things out anymore. Parker wasn’t a male with a good temperament. He might do something if he became anxious.
After settling down Bai Qingqing and the children, Muir gestured to Alva, who had been continuously guarding outside the wooden house. Both of them flew up together to a branch on top.
“What are Qingqing’s children? I heard the cries. There are three of them, right? Are their leopards or tigers?” Alva asked excitedly.
Muir didn’t reply to Alva but kept things simple as he said, “There’s no need to put up additional guards anymore. Let the leopard beastman come in.”
