Chapter 707: The Little Snake Takes Revenge on His Stepfather (3)
Feeling itchy with the little snake’s head b.u.mping against her waist, Bai Qingqing kept giggling. The itch only subsided after she sat down.
“Alright… stop b.u.mping against me. It’s so itchy.”
Thinking that he was of help to Bai Qingqing, the little snake coiled up beside her with a gleeful expression.
Bai Qingqing carefully sized up the little snake’s body and measured his length using her hands. “Prop up your body straight for Mommy to see how much you’ve grown.”
Of course, the little snake obliged. When Bai Qingqing measured his neck, he would obediently stick out his head. When Bai Qingqing wanted to measure his body length, he would fold himself in several sections, forming an instant noodle-like pile.
After she more or less finished taking the measurements, Bai Qingqing said with a smile, “You grew really fast, little snake. In a few years, you’ll be as big as your daddy.”
The little snake’s eyes were bright and sparkly. He flipped over to reveal big and tough white scales on his abdomen. There was a hole in the mid-section of his body. He gradually revealed a reproductive organ that resembled the forked part of a snake’s tongue.
Bai Qingqing’s lips twitched, and she smacked the little snake on his head. “You don’t have to show this to Mommy. Cough… but you’re growing pretty well.”
Was the little snake undergoing p.u.b.erty? Shouldn’t be the case, right? He was only two years old.
The little snake flipped his body around and happily rubbed against Bai Qingqing’s hand.
The mother-and-son duo’s interaction was rather harmonious. When Parker came back with a pile of firewood, he saw the little snake coiled around his spouse. That familiar-looking black and red combination of colors made him feel uncomfortable.
There was a moment where he even saw the little snake as Curtis.
“You’re back,” Bai Qingqing said in a raised voice, snapping him out of his trance.
Parker strode over with the firewood in his arms. Due to the slight change in his perception, he wasn’t planning on tolerating the little snake anymore. If the little snake bit him again, he was going to toss the little snake outside.
Thankfully, the little snake didn’t attack him this time. At Parker’s reappearance, he merely appeared more attached to Bai Qingqing, rubbing his body against her vigorously.
Bai Qingqing had no choice but to focus her attention on the little snake. She was kept busy stroking his head and stomach, making Parker’s countenance grow increasingly darker.
Very quickly, the steamed bird’s eggs were ready. Bai Qingqing scooped out a spoonful and blew upon it, before feeding it to the little snake.
“Try it. Do you still remember the taste of steamed eggs?” As she spoke, she recalled what it was like when these snakes were babies, and a smile unconsciously appeared on her face. “Do you still remember what it was like when you just broke out of the sh.e.l.l? We steamed a pot of eggs back then, and you and your brothers fell into the pot and finished all the steamed eggs. You even got steamed eggs onto your bodies and bit at each other.”
The little snake flicked out his tongue. From his expression, it was clear that he could still remember it.
The little snake edged his lips to the steamed egg and slurped the smooth substance into his mouth.
Bai Qingqing continued feeding him with the steamed egg. Seeing that the steamed egg in Bai Qingqing’s bowl was turning cold, Parker had no choice but to feed her from the side.
After they were done eating, he said to her, “Let’s go back. It’s time for you to take a nap. If we don’t go back, Curtis might come out to look for you.”
The little snake got anxious upon hearing this. He glared at Parker ferociously and seemed like he was about to pounce over and bite.
With one hand pinned upon the little snake’s head, Bai Qingqing felt that Parker’s words made sense. She reluctantly said to him, “Mommy doesn’t wish for you to be in danger. I’ll go back first and come back to visit you another day.”
The little snake appeared dispirited as he stared aggrievedly at her.
Heart softening under her son’s stare, Bai Qingqing looked vexed as she turned towards Parker. “Do you think Curtis would accept it if we bring the little snake back to the village?”
Parker said, “The last time when you weren’t around, Curtis wanted to kill him.”
