Chapter 79: Downed a Bowl of Medicine
This should be Parker’s older sister.
Bai Qingqing thought to herself as she smiled at the moment.
To her surprise, she then heard Parker addressing her warmly. “Mom!”
Bai Qingqing dug her ears, grabbing Parker’s hand in disbelief and asking, “What did you just call her?”
“Mom.” As Parker spoke, he embraced his mother who had squatted down by his side and said gratefully, “Thank you for asking Father to come to rescue Qingqing.”
Memi smacked Parker away and said, glaring at him, “You’re still a kid? You even have a mate now.”
Bai Qingqing was completely dumbfounded.
Memi looked towards Bai Qingqing, propping her face with both hands and asking with a delicate smile. “Am I very young?”
Bai Qingqing nodded, still dazed.
“This is all thanks to Parker’s father. In the future, Parker will become invincible too. He will surely be able to capture giant beasts.” Memi praised his son, then asked, “Why is there so much mud on your face? I’ll get you some water to clean up.”
“It’s alright. I deliberately did this.” Bai Qingqing lowered her eyes, then asked softly after a moment’s hesitation, “Do you know how to resolve partners.h.i.+p?”
The smile on Memi’s face vanished. Her gaze swept over Bai Qingqing once and landed on the snake tattoo on Bai Qingqing’s ankle, at which pity was seen in her brown eyes.
“Of course. Have you considered carefully?” Memi asked softly.
Bai Qingqing didn’t reply instantly. At the thought of how Cortis had burned himself several times cooking for her, yet when he brought the food to her there wasn’t a hint of impatience, she couldn’t bear to do it.
Eve had said that males only had one chance to become mates with someone. After they were abandoned they couldn’t become mates with anyone else anymore. Was she really going to cut off all possibilities between her and Cortis?
Parker held Bai Qingqing’s hand, an aggrieved look in his eyes. “He forced himself upon you. Are you going to hesitate?”
Bai Qingqing suddenly recalled the ferocious manner in which Cortis pounced towards her and anger surged up inside of her. She nodded. “I’ve thought through it carefully, I want to resolve the partners.h.i.+p.”
This animal tattoo was no different from a wedding certificate. If it was gone, so be it. If in the future she decided to be with Cortis, she figured they would be fine even without a wedding certificate.
Moreover, Cortis had said that the animal tattoo he left behind couldn’t be removed, so perhaps she couldn’t remove it even if she wanted to.
Memi sighed, then said, “I’ll go and make some preparations.”
With that, she got to her feet and walked out of the house.
Parker happily embraced Bai Qingqing, rubbing his face against her filthy one intimately. “Great. I’ll still be your only male.”
Bai Qingqing, who was feeling terrible, ignored Parker. The snake tattoo on her ankle seemed to sense danger, causing it to tighten slightly.
Very soon, Memi came back with a bowl of hot soup. “Qingqing, right? Drink this medicine first.”
Bai Qingqing quietly took the stone bowl with both hands, lowered her head, and started drinking it.
Memi’s body tilted forwards involuntarily, seemingly wis.h.i.+ng to stop her.
“It’s so bitter, what medicine is this?” Bai Qingqing paused to take a breath, before pouring the last of the medicine into her mouth.
In all sixteen years of her existence, she had never tasted something so bitter before.
Memi replied guiltily, “Abortion medicine.”
“Pff!” Bai Qingqing spat out a mouthful of black medicine, splattering Parker’s face with black dots.
Parker didn’t mind at all. He simply touched his face and said to Memi, “Mom, Qingqing spat out a mouthful, do we need to bring her another bowl?”
Bai Qingqing howled at Parker. “I’m not carrying his children!”
F*ck. She had drunk this super bitter thing for nothing.
Memi said, “This is just in case. If you give birth to that homeless beast’s eggs, your children won’t have a father then. You will surely regret it.”
