Chapter 751: Making Things Difficult
Bai Qingqing saw that he didn’t have a single animal stripe on his face but was able to s.n.a.t.c.h her from the hands of a four-striped beastman. She started feeling worried.
This beastman was probably at the same level as Curtis or higher!
“Roar!” A lion roar rang out next to her ears. At the next instant, the young man leaped up, carrying her along with him and landing beyond the range of the lion beastman’s attack.
The young man carried Bai Qingqing and left coolly. His unrestrained laughter was the background music for his departure.
Bai Qingqing let out a long exhale and opened her eyes.
Her vision was moving rapidly at the previous second, but it suddenly returned to a standstill. It became a familiar environment. Bai Qingqing was stunned for a moment.
Parker was changing An’an’s diaper. The moment Bai Qingqing opened her eyes, he could hear the changes to her breathing. He looked up and took a look at her; her face clearly had the words “I’m not happy” written all over it.
“Parker!” Bai Qingqing was pleasantly surprised to see him. To think that she dreamed that they had all disappeared. It was too scary.
Wait a minute, what did she dream of again?
Bai Qingqing knocked her head. In the few seconds it took for her mind to clear up, she forgot about the dream completely. To think that she only remembered that Parker and Winston had disappeared.
She felt that her dream was very fun, but it was infuriating to find out that her mind was completely blank.
“What’s the matter? Are you unhappy?” Bai Qingqing put on her clothes while asking.
Parker ignored her and kept his head lowered. He was already done with changing the diapers, but he still looked as if he was seriously tidying An’an’s clothing. It was as if he could get a flower to bloom on her.
“Hey?” Bai Qingqing was baffled.
The bedroom door was pushed open and Winston brought in food. He looked toward Bai Qingqing and said, “Come and have breakfast.”
“Why are you still at home?” Bai Qingqing stood up and suddenly felt that the atmosphere at home was a little strange.
“I went to the iron-smelting room earlier, made arrangements for the work to be done, then came back,” Winston replied.
“Oh, that’s good. You should take a rest too,” Bai Qingqing said.
An’an smacked her lips, and Parker knew that she was hungry. He carried her and walked over to Bai Qingqing’s side.
Bai Qingqing quickly undid her clothes to breastfeed her.
“Who is Saint Zachary?” Parker suddenly asked.
“Huh?” Bai Qingqing looked at him with a dazed expression. “Who?”
“Saint Zachary,” Winston repeated.
That made Bai Qingqing even more dazed. “Saint Zachary? I don’t know. Do you guys know?”
The two males heaved a sigh of relief in unison. Winston explained, “You mentioned this a few times when you were sleeping.”
“Impossible!” Bai Qingqing was stunned. “How could I sleep talk?”
Winston was also confused. “You have no impression of this name?”
“No, I haven’t even heard of it before.” Bai Qingqing cradled the child while looking at Parker and Winston with a suspicious faze. “You guys are lying to me, right?”
Parker became agitated upon hearing that and quickly tried to clear his name. “Why would we lie to you? You did say it.”
Winston said, “Since you have no impression of it, then there’s no need to mind it. Qingqing, have a drink.”
“En,” Bai Qingqing replied, thinking,
Could it be that I really sleep-talked? It could be related to my dream, but it’s a pity that I can’t remember it.
Winston believed that Bai Qingqing wouldn’t lie to them. Parker thought the same. Neither males continued with this topic.
The sound of striking metal tools started to ring out in the village, like the sound of a clock, slowly sending time away. In the blink of an eye, Bai Qingqing finished her confinement. It was the night of a full moon again.
This was destined to be a sleepless night.
Seeing that the sky was going to turn dark soon, Bai Qingqing felt unsettled. She had just sat down when she quickly stood up again.
