Chapter 452: Unt.i.tled
“You were the one who saved me. It was so on the mountain and at the bottom of the sea.”
Bai Qingqing was stunned. So, when she placed her feet in the water, she helped him?
But how did she save him when he was at the bottom of the sea?
“Why did you say that?” Bai Qingqing asked. She suddenly thought of something, then pouted, feeling unsure as she asked, “Oh, right. I seemed to have seen you before I fell unconscious. Did I see it wrongly? You didn’t come so quickly, right?”
“You didn’t see anything wrong. This is the important thing that I want to talk to you about.”
Curtis turned her head towards him, looked into her eyes, and solemnly said, “I’ve attained a breakthrough. Being able to arrive by your side in an instant is the protection that I can give to you now. I won’t ever let you be in danger again.”
Bai Qingqing’s eyes opened wide.
d.a.m.n, did Curtis have to be so heaven-defying?
To be able to summon him at any moment, it meant that even if she wanted to commit suicide, she wouldn’t be able to do so.
Curtis suddenly mumbled softly, feeling vexed, “If I had known about this, I would have forcibly strived for a breakthrough earlier.”
A stifled “bang” rang out. Having just come back, Parker tossed the prey by the river.
Bai Qingqing threw a glance outside, and seeing that the children were almost full, she pulled them away, tidied up her clothing, and crawled out.
“You’re back.” Bai Qingqing looked at his expression. “What’s the matter?”
Parker threw a glance at her, then said gloomily, “I want to protect you in the same way as well.”
“You’re still young. You’ll definitely become stronger in the future.” Bai Qingqing encouraged him.
Parker felt a lot better and was a lot quicker when he got to work.
Bluepool, who hadn’t left a spousal mark on a female, let out a dry laugh, then tugged out a blade of gra.s.s and ground his teeth with it.
No wonder Bai Qingqing didn’t accept him. It must be because he wasn’t able to protect her at all times.
Such a wide gap between species made the fish very helpless.
The cubs were full and laying on the gra.s.s with their stomachs facing upward, having the same postures and expressions, looking very adorable.
Bai Qingqing’s heart turned soft when she saw how adorable they were. She poked their stomachs gently with her finger.
When the cubs were poked, they let out a soft “meow,” then didn’t show any other expression. They closed their eyes and quickly fell asleep.
“Pffft! How is it that they can sleep just like that?” Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but smile. Amused, quite a lot of her suppressed depression dissipated.
Curtis’s expression softened as well. When he heard the sound of burning fire by the side, he was suddenly struck with the realization that these were Parker’s children, and his face turned grim again.
“Snow, next time you go into heat, let’s have another nest of children,” Curtis said.
Bai Qingqing’s face turned red, and she threw a glance at Bluepool.
There were still outsiders around. It was very embarra.s.sing to be saying this.
Parker instantly felt wary, and he looked towards them.
“Where are the little snakes? They haven’t grown up yet, so why are you talking about giving birth to more?” Bai Qingqing said with a reddened face. Winston hadn’t come, either. He must be taking care of the little snakes, right?
“I threw them away,” Curtis said calmly.
Bai Qingqing’s eyes opened wide. This concerned her children and thus she became braver. She picked up a branch and smashed it at him. “How can you do that? I haven’t seen them for the last time. They must feel sad.”
Curtis wasn’t angry. He caught the branch and said, “They’ve already grown big. If you like, we can just give birth to another nest.”
He mustn’t let all of Snow’s attention be s.n.a.t.c.hed by Parker’s children.
Curtis suddenly felt a little regretful. If only he had chosen to hide the little snakes somewhere back then. If so, he’d be able to find them and make use of them right away.
Bai Qingqing was speechless. Hearing that, she didn’t dare to say that she liked little snakes anymore.
“Let’s talk about this after we settle down.”
Parker heaved a sigh of relief. Curtis had no objections to this either.
Almost half of the heavy rainy season was over, and the weather was getting a little cold.
