Chapter 726: Moving House (1)
An’an wet the animal skin again earlier, so Parker helped wipe her. Her umbilical cord had come off by now, merely leaving behind a blood scab on her round tummy. After it came off, it would turn into a belly b.u.t.ton.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t help recalling when the leopard cubs were just born, she didn’t do anything about that. The leopard cubs had run around dragging their umbilical cords everywhere they ran. And by the time she realized it, their umbilical cords had turned dry. Subsequently, she simply let them fall off by themselves.
Glancing at the leopard cubs licking their furs while lying on their bellies by the side, Bai Qingqing felt a little guilty about it.
She caressed An’an’s tiny feet, which were so soft that it made her heart soften as well.
“An’an is really adorable.”
An’an flailed her four limbs, as though responding to her mother. How she twisted her frail and delicate body was hard for the males to imagine.
At the thought of how the females had grown up in such a frail manner, the males present had an urge to treat their spouse even better.
After she was dressed, An’an started making “ah” sounds, asking to be fed. Bai Qingqing took her from Parker and breastfed her in an experienced manner.
“I feel that I’m done recovering. Let’s move to the new home,” she said.
Although Curtis could stay put in the same place for a year, it wouldn’t do for Bai Qingqing. With no Internet and phone here, in order not to develop any sequelae from not doing her confinement properly, she didn’t even dare to make new clothes. Without any form of entertainment, she was nearly driven insane by boredom.
Rather than desiring to s.h.i.+ft to a new home, what Bai Qingqing yearned more was to head out for a stroll.
“Your confinement is not over,” Winston said with a stern countenance.
“I’ve fully recovered! I’m done with the confinement, I want to go out.” Bai Qingqing said as she got to her feet and jumped with An’an in her arms. “Look, I’m really fine now. Let’s s.h.i.+ft.”
Winston closed his mouth and said nothing. Heart softening, Parker lifted the pile of gra.s.s at the entrance and peered outside. “It’s not too windy today. Why don’t we move now?”
“Mm, mm!” Bai Qingqing nodded repeatedly. “Curtis is about to go into hibernation. Let’s s.h.i.+ft to the new home earlier so that he can rest as soon as possible.”
Encouraged, Parker immediately went to pack up their luggage. He was just about to open the wooden case when a large palm pinned it.
“Do you want to fight?” Parker revealed his teeth and howled at Winston.
Winston’s hands pressed firmly upon the wooden case. He twisted his head and saw an aggrieved expression on her face, making his heart waver.
But recalling what she said a few days ago, he held back the urge to give in to her.
Bai Qingqing walked to Winston’s side. With the baby in one arm, she tugged at Winston’s hand and shook it in a wheedling manner. “I’ll just make one trip out. At most, I’ll wear more layers so the wind doesn’t enter my body. Moreover, you guys don’t practice the custom of confinement here anyway, right? Why don’t you go and ask Harvey? I’m sure he won’t object to it.”
Winston sighed and helplessly said, “Alright, I’ll go ask him. Wait for me to come back.”
Bai Qingqing’s face lit up, and she nodded vigorously. “Mm.”
After Winston left, Bai Qingqing urged Parker to pack up their luggage and even woke up the drowsy Curtis, who was dozing off by the side.
Within three minutes, Winston returned and brought back an affirmative answer.
Hence, Bai Qingqing got her wish to come out of the tree hole.
Taking in the fresh air that was so cold it brought a piercing sensation to her nose, Bai Qingqing let out a sigh of satisfaction. “Ah! Finally got to come out. Feels so comfortable!”
Winston fixed the hat on her head and lifted her. “Are you cold?”
“Not cold,” Bai Qingqing replied right away. Are you kidding? Even if she did feel cold, she couldn’t have told him that, or else she would be thrown back into the prison cell immediately.
Lying on his shoulder, her mouth and nose were hidden in the animal skin, revealing only a pair of large eyes that glowed with excitement as she looked around.
