Chapter 728: Moving House (3)
With the city walls blocking the wind outside, the moment Bai Qingqing entered she felt enveloped by warmth.
Bai Qingqing was already starting to visualize what sort of plants she was going to grow on that empty plot of land. Ooh… perhaps some ornamental plants in the front yard and vegetables in the backyard.
Once the leopard cubs entered, they sprinted maniacally in the yard, adding vitality to this stone castle which had never been occupied by anyone. Even the chilliness seemed to have dissipated a little.
“Do you like it?”
Winston’s deep voice rang behind her. She turned around to look at him and excitedly nodded.
“I like it. I like it very much.”
Winston’s lips twitched in a stiff smile. “Go in and take a look.”
“Mm.” Gazing at the stone castle before her eyes, Bai Qingqing briskly strode inside.
Different from the stern and grand aura of the castle in the City of Beastmen, this stone castle gave off a more homely vibe.
Bai Qingqing could already imagine their family enjoying the breeze here during the hot season. Being s.p.a.cious and well-ventilated, served with a few platters of fruits and tidbits, it would definitely be very comfortable.
In Bai Qingqing’s eyes, this enormous architectural building exuded warmth in every corner.
She couldn’t help but smile. Her eyes, however, gradually stung and moistened.
“Wah~” Bai Qingqing had no idea what to say. She blinked to force back the tears. “This is wonderful. Where will we be staying?”
“It’s cold now, so we’ll stay on the first story.” Winston walked to her side and held her hand, leading her into a corridor.
Parker, too, gazed around curiously, following behind the two of them with the baby in his arms.
The master bedroom was very s.p.a.cious, with the nests and furniture fully prepared, ready for occupants to move in at any time. Standing at the window, one could see the yard outside. After the plants were grown, it would definitely be a lovely place with the twitter of birds and the fragrance of flowers.
Curtis had already placed the luggage in the room, but he was nowhere to be seen. After a fruitless search in the house, Bai Qingqing lowered her eyes.
“Curtis must have dug a hole to sleep somewhere.” She smiled in glee as she mumbled to herself. She walked to Parker’s side and whispered, “With this house being so big, we’ll be able to secretly bring the little snakes back in the future.”
“Little snakes?” The sharp-eared Winston caught what she had said.
“Shh shh shh!” Bai Qingqing motioned at Winston for him to keep quiet. She explained softly, “My little snake came to find me, but Curtis forbade him from meeting me. Parker secretly brought me to see the little snake. Don’t tell Curtis about it!”
As Winston wasn’t a snake beastman, he didn’t know why Curtis was doing this, so of course, he wouldn’t ruin things for Bai Qingqing.
“I won’t tell him,” Winston promised.
Bai Qingqing sighed and said, “Eh, what a pity. If we had moved here sooner, my little snake would be able to hibernate here.”
“Let’s call them over next year.” Winston comforted her.
Bai Qingqing nodded.
After playing briefly, she was ordered to go lie in bed again.
Though the bedroom was s.p.a.cious, there was one bad thing about it—it was cold.
Although cold wind wouldn’t enter as easily as in a tree hole, it gave a visual perception of coldness. Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but wrap the blanket more firmly around her. She pulled the three leopard cubs, tasked to warm up the bed, closer to her.
Today was the day they moved into their new home. In the modern ages, one would have to throw a housewarming party. As Bai Qingqing also wished for a lively atmosphere, she asked Parker to prepare more good food today.
Parker naturally obliged. He handed Winston a diaper he hadn’t yet had the time to wash. “I’ll leave these to you.”
Winston took the diaper from him and dutifully went off to wash it.
Although he had plenty of brute strength, he was far from great at taking care of someone. Every time An’an p.o.o.ped, when he cleansed her little bottom, he would end up making her wail. Bai Qingqing, watching from the side, couldn’t help but want to take over from him.
