Chapter 396 Bliss That Suddenly Came
When Muir came up, he brought back a basin of clean sand. He was even meticulous in asking if she had the urge to relieve herself.
This made Bai Qingqing feel as if she was also a child being taken care of by him.
After clearing her system, Bai Qingqing called the children over. They were very docile and came upon her calling.
“Children, it’s time to sleep.” Bai Qingqing placed the cubs neatly by her side, then looked at Muir. “You should have an early rest as well. You’ve been flying for the day and should be very tired.”
Muir smiled. His body was very tired, but there was an unprecedented sense of satisfaction in his heart that he had never felt before for the past 20 or more years.
Days like this would be ending tomorrow. If Qingqing found out that he had kept Parker outside the village, she’d probably ignore him for a very long period.
After the cubs slept, the room became very quiet. The two adults weren’t sleepy at all.
It could be that when one’s body was weak, their hearts would become frail as well.
Bai Qingqing thought back to how Muir had taken care of her during this period, and her determined heart suddenly wavered.
Should she give Muir a chance?
The reason why Bai Qingqing’s heart wavered wasn’t just because of what took place tonight. Muir had always been meticulous in taking care of her, and there were many things he had done that had touched her.
There was one thing out of the many others that touched her the most. When her stomach had gotten bigger, she would have to visit the sandpit 20 to 30 times every day. She would even have to get up 4 to 5 times in the middle of the night. It was a big problem for her to climb up and down the tree. Not only was it tiring, but it was also very dangerous. It was Muir who had carried her up and down. Over the past one month or more, he had done so for close to 1,000 times. He had never been impatient about it at all.
Such minor things might not sound like much, but the soft-hearted and kind Bai Qingqing was very touched. She also felt bad toward him.
It wasn’t as if Muir didn’t have any reason to be good to her. He only had one goal—for them to become mates.
The next day, both of them, who had problems sleeping, got up a little late. The cubs were the ones to wake them up.
Muir quickly brought the female leopard up. This time around, he bound all of its four limbs, allowing the cubs to have their breakfast smoothly.
Muir was a little quiet today. After preparing the food, he stood at the side and watched Bai Qingqing eat, not saying a word.
The village was no longer stopping Parker anymore, and he’d probably come very quickly. It wouldn’t be long before Qingqing would ignore him.
No one would feel comfortable to be stared at. Bai Qingqing was no exception. In order to stop this stiff atmosphere, she quickly finished her breakfast—a mix of meat and vegetable dishes.
Muir was about to clean up the dishes when Bai Qingqing suddenly said, “Wait a minute. I have something to say.” “Hmmm?” Muir raised his head to look at her.
Bai Qingqing hugged the three cubs in her arms, then spoke up, seeming as if she was going all out. “After Parker and Curtis come, if they can accept you, then we’ll become mates.”A “clank” rang out as Muir dropped the stone bowl he was holding.
“What did you say?” Muir was in a daze. He broke into a stunned expression that wasn’t fitting for his masculine face.
Bai Qingqing found Muir’s foolish expression funny, but her heart ached for him even more.
“I said that we could become mates, but only if Parker and Curtis are agreeable to that.” After saying that, Bai Qingqing put her hand to her forehead, fretting. Both Curtis and Parker would definitely be angry at her.
This was a decision that Bai Qingqing had come to after thinking about it over the night. During these days that they had spent together, she understood that Muir was an abnormally obstinate male. He wouldn’t change his mind easily after coming to a decision.
She owed him too much. If she still didn’t accept him, she would feel heartless.
Given how Muir had taken care of her for so long, Curtis and Parker might agree to it. If that were to happen, then she could try to accept him.
Muir grinned, and a weatherworn expression that seemed to be from an aged old man appeared on his young face. Although he was smiling, it was heart-wrenching.
