: Qingqing Has Woken
It was apparent that she was completely exhausted yesterday. The moment Bai Qingqing woke up, before even stretching lazily, she first let out a long sigh.
“How tiring!” Bai Qingqing closed her eyes. Though her senses had sobered up, her body was so tired that she had difficulty even opening her eyes.
Invigorated, Parker shook her body forcefully. “Qingqing, you’re awake? I knew you wouldn’t die so easily.”
Bai Qingqing rolled her eyes internally. Why did it sound like he was saying “Good people don’t live for long, but the bad ones live on for a thousand years”?
Although she was mentally prepared, did he need to be so direct now that she had already woken?
Hearing Curtis’s voice, Bai Qingqing immediately opened her eyes. What greeted her was Curtis’s gentle and handsome face. Only then did she realize that she had been sleeping in his arms.
“You’ve woken?” Curtis helped her to sit up, making her draw in a gasp.
She let out a hiss. “It hurts!”
Curtis immediately helped her lie horizontally and said apologetically, “I’m sorry to have hurt you.”
Bai Qingqing s.h.i.+fted her body and realized that her body felt incredibly frail and devoid of strength. It took her a great deal of effort to reach her stomach.
It was flat now.
A broad beam bloomed on her face, and she asked with antic.i.p.ation, “Where’s An’an?”
Parker immediately got up and carried the baby over from the side to hand to Bai Qingqing.
The baby was wrapped up in swaddling clothes, only revealing a tiny face the size of Bai Qingqing’s palm. Her skin was flushed and wrinkly, making the startled Bai Qingqing draw in another gasp.
“Why… so ugly?” Despite her attempts to hold it in, Bai Qingqing ultimately couldn’t resist uttering her thoughts.
“Of course. This is, after all, Winston’s female baby,” Parker said as though it went without saying.
Bai Qingqing found it hard to accept. Moreover, it wasn’t as though Winston was ugly, and it wasn’t like the scar on his face would be pa.s.sed on to his offspring.
“Are you saying An’an is Winston’s child?” asked Bai Qingqing.
“Hmph.” Parker let out a disgruntled grunt.
The moment he held the baby in his arms, he could detect the scent of a tiger beastman. There was no mistake about it—An’an was definitely a female of the tiger tribe. Although the blood stench was too intense, making it difficult to distinguish which tiger’s child it was, she could only be Winston’s child since Bai Qingqing only had one tiger mate.
“Where’s Winston?” Bai Qingqing swept her gaze around the entire house.
Speak of the devil. A white tiger crawled into the tree hole.
Bai Qingqing drew in another gasp. “How did you get injured?”
Winston transformed into a human, causing the wounds on his body to contort. However, as the healing had already begun, it didn’t seem to do much damage.
“I bit him.” Parker coldly spoke the truth without bothering to conceal it.
Bai Qingqing reached out from the blanket and pinched Parker’s arm ferociously. Being thick-skinned in the literal sense, Parker’s countenance didn’t even change the slightest at the pinch, making her so furious that she exerted more strength.
Winston felt a sour and swollen sensation in his heart. Seeing how his spouse was defending him, his eyes stung up as well. In a deeper tone than usual, he said, “I’m fine. Are you still in pain?”
Bai Qingqing’s face crumpled, and said honestly, “Yeah.”
There was a sense of wheedling in her voice. She lowered her head and glanced towards him.
Actually, she was quite embarra.s.sed to face them. She must have been in quite a sorry-looking state back then. Ah! Her image!
Heart aching even more, Winston squatted by her legs. “Let me take a look.”
Bai Qingqing stomped Winston’s chest by reflex. But instead of knocking him down, she felt a tug at her wound, bringing her so much pain her face contorted in agony.
Curtis chuckled and patted her back. “Don’t move about randomly.”
