Chapter 714: Giving Birth (2)
“This is the norm when giving birth to a female baby. The pain is inevitable as female babies have big heads. There’s no way to stop the pain,” said Harvey.
Parker’s fur instantly exploded as he raged. “How is that possible? Why have I never heard that giving birth to a female baby is so painful?”
Intense suspicion could be seen in Winston’s eyes as he stared intently at Harvey. Though he didn’t say a single word, he exuded an even stronger sense of oppression than Parker.
Only Curtis didn’t make things difficult for Harvey. He merely cast a fleeting glance at him, before turning his attention to Bai Qingqing, caressing her head from time to time.
This was the spouse they cherished with all their hearts, and even an insect bite on her would incur heartache in them. How they wished they could suffer on her behalf right now, even if it meant enduring a pain hundredfold of this. Yet, now she was in such great torment from giving birth to a female baby…
More beads of cold perspiration formed on Harvey’s head as he explained, “Precisely because it’s too painful, that’s why the tribal head asked us to keep it a secret. The conception of a female baby is way too rare. If word gets out, the females would definitely drink abortion medicine to get rid of the baby. That will mean a reduction in the number of females, making procreation even more challenging.”
Though Parker and Winston had suppressed rage in their hearts, they stopped making things difficult for him. Instead, they turned to look at Bai Qingqing once more.
Harvey’s words made perfect sense—if they had known that giving birth to a female baby would be so painful, they wouldn’t have hesitated to ask Bai Qingqing to abort it back then.
If they couldn’t even protect their spouse, what would they need offspring for?
Bai Qingqing let out an agonizing cry, causing the blood vessels on her temples to pop out. Breath quickening, Curtis bent over her and covered her upper body with his icy hair strands.
Curtis gently kissed her ears, moisture forming in his blood-red ears. An icy water droplet fell from his eye.
“Don’t be like this…” Curtis pleaded.
In response, Bai Qingqing bit her lower lip to stop herself from making any noise. Shortly after, she tasted blood. But the intense pain in her lower body numbed the sting from her bleeding lip.
Detecting the stench of blood, Curtis hurriedly raised his head. The sight of the bright red bloodstains on the female’s pale lips brought about a sharp stab of pain in the hearts of three males in the house.
As though that trace of blood had seeped from a wound in their hearts.
Curtis shook Bai Qingqing’s head and hurriedly said, “Loosen your bite.”
In so much pain that she was in a semi-conscious state, Bai Qingqing obediently loosened her bite. Following that, she felt something being stuffed into her mouth. She bit that thing and instantly felt a sore and painful sensation in her teeth.
“Ooh?” Bai Qingqing lowered her gaze and realized that she was biting Curtis’s finger. She quickly tried to thrust it out with her tongue.
“If you want to bite something, bite me. Don’t bite yourself,” Curtis said as he hugged her head, his intense heartache evident in his tone.
Bai Qingqing shook her head, but Curtis refused to take out his finger.
She was on the brink of tears:
F*ck, your skin is so tough it’s giving me a toothache!
Parker and Winston also stuck out a hand, preparing to offer for Bai Qingqing to bite any time she needed it.
Harvey gazed around and, seeing an animal skin towel hanging on the wooden rack, yanked it off and curled it up to hand to Curtis.
“Let her bite this. Females’ teeth can’t withstand males’ skin. Especially since you have scales in your beast form, making for more rigid skin.”
Curtis paused, and only then retracted his finger from Bai Qingqing’s mouth and took the towel from Harvey for her to bite.
Bai Qingqing cast a grateful glance at Harvey, then continued to exert strength into pus.h.i.+ng the baby out.
This day had pa.s.sed particularly slowly for Bai Qingqing, yet also particularly fast. Before she knew it, the skies had darkened.
