Chapter 680: The Dating Component
Though Bai Qingqing was. .h.i.tting the little cubs, all her attention was on Winston behind her. The hand on her waist made her unable to breathe freely.
“Nothing, they’re fooling around,” Bai Qingqing said breezily.
She was always this shy in front of him. She was starting to feel frustrated about this.
She lamented in her heart that there was no such thing as reaping what one had not sown—for even for a flash marriage, they couldn’t do without the dating component.
Look, even half a year after they “got married,” things were still in this state.
In order to drink milk, the blanket was made messy by the cubs, leaving cracks that allowed the warm air to escape. That was, however, only a secondary concern. What Bai Qingqing worried about most, was that Winston could tell what the leopard cubs were up to.
“Don’t move!” Bai Qingqing howled at them. She turned towards Winston and had her back facing them.
Winston’s warm breath fell upon the top of her head. Bai Qingqing glanced up at him, then said shyly, “Hehe… the cubs are so mischievous.”
“Mm,” Winston replied in his deep voice.
The three cubs scratched at Bai Qingqing’s back and purred pleadingly in their soft babyish tones.
Bai Qingqing elbowed and nudged away the three leopards lying sprawled on her body, ordering sternly, “Sleep!”
The leopard cubs finally became obedient.
They laid on their bellies in a neat row, their little heads hidden inside the blanket, only revealing their tiny black noses outside to breathe.
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. Suddenly, she felt as though the arm holding her had tightened its grip. Was this her hallucination?
“Winston, I’m going to sleep now. Goodnight,” Bai Qingqing said softly.
Winston instantly said, “Goodnight.”
The tree hole then plunged into a long silence, and only the symphony of breathing sounds could be heard.
After Bai Qingqing fell into a deep sleep, she would subconsciously roll towards somewhere warm. Due to her large belly, she couldn’t stick closely to the source of warmth.
“Qingqing?” Winston called out testingly. Having gotten no response, he then stealthily s.h.i.+fted his body.
Winston flipped Bai Qingqing over and let her rest on his own arm, using his chest to warm up her back. With an arm around her waist, he warmed up her belly with one hand, while s.h.i.+elding her soft b.r.e.a.s.t.s with his other.
Winston’s motive was very pure—to do a better job at warming her up. But the tenderness his skin came in contact with made him involuntarily get a reaction.
The fatal thing was, the soft body in his arms actually started rubbing against him.
Now that she was finally in contact with a source of warmth, Bai Qingqing let out a dreamy sigh in her sleep as she squeezed backward.
Rock-hard gooseb.u.mps instantly rose all over Winston’s body.
Males tended to be alert. This movement startled Eldest from his sleep, who was leaning against his mommy. He wrinkled his nose and, sniffing the familiar scent of milk, instantly felt much more invigorated.
Stealthily turning his head, Eldest licked his lips and reached over to bite.
Winston drew in an audible gasp.
Sensing that the texture wasn’t quite right, Eldest rapidly wrinkled his nose, and his eyes instantly widened as he retreated sheepishly.
Shucks! Bit the wrong person! Will the tiger beastman beat me as Daddy does?
Regardless, I should hide first!
Eldest was about to grab Second, who was lying next to him, to take the rap for him, when he suddenly felt a large hand grabbing him.
Eldest let out a cry of surprise.
“Shh! Stop making noises,” Winston said in a deep and hoa.r.s.e voice as he pinned Eldest’s body in front of Bai Qingqing’s chest. “Your mommy’s cold, stay close to her.”
Eldest was delighted at the turn of events.
If this were the comic books, Eldest would be revealing a slant-eyed lewd smile at this moment.
Winston heaved a sigh of relief and closed his eyes, quietly suppressing the reaction in his lower body. Alas, unbeknown to him, Eldest reached out his demonic claws to his mommy…
