Chapter 797: Bai Qingqing’s Trap for Molly
The female child’s tan face was still wet and had traces of blood on it.
Although her skin was dark, it was smooth and looked much better than An’an’s red and wrinkly skin when she was born.
Bai Qingqing became speechless again. Looking at how beautiful An’an was now, she thought all children looked that ugly when they were born.
She swallowed back all the words that she was about to say to Molly to comfort her.
What the h.e.l.l? She’s just asking for it, isn’t she?
The look of disdain on Molly’s face after she saw the female child only made Bai Qingqing even more infuriated. “She’s so ugly.”
Bai Qingqing was speechless.
She smiled gracefully and said, “I’ll head back first. Enjoy your chat.”
Molly glanced at her weirdly and asked, “It’s so rare for us to get a chance to meet. Why are you leaving so soon?”
Bai Qingqing continued to smile gracefully as she replied, “I’m afraid that if I stay, I won’t be able to control my desire to beat you into a pulp.”
Amused by Bai Qingqing’s reaction, Molly burst out laughing, so much so that she accidentally tugged on the wound on her lower body and winced in pain.
“Okay, just lie still.” Bai Qingqing carried the child away before looking sternly at her mates.
Alva began to feel uncomfortable about facing Bai Qingqing as he was Molly’s male now. He didn’t notice it earlier when he was calling people over as Molly was still in pain.
“What?” Alva asked.
Edgar also looked at Bai Qingqing quizzically.
Seeing that she now had the two males’ curiosity and attention, a wicked idea formed in Bai Qingqing’s head. She asked them seriously, “Do you know what confinement is?”
“What’s confinement?” Edgar and Alva asked at the same time, exchanging glances with each other. Alva then rolled his eyes and turned away.
Knowing full well the “pain” Bai Qingqing experienced during her confinement, Harvey smiled and shook his head before going down to make nouris.h.i.+ng soup for Molly.
Bai Qingqing continued, “Confinement is something that females must do after giving birth to female children. Otherwise, they’ll suffer from ailments.”
Alva and Edgar were shocked. Edgar quickly asked, “What’s confinement? Is it easy to find? Where did you find yours?”
“Um…” Bai Qingqing was at a loss for words. Back then, Winston also thought that was a thing and that he was going to find it for her.
“Confinement isn’t a thing, it’s a period of time,” Bai Qingqing explained. “It means that the female cannot leave the house for a month.”
“I see,” Edgar replied in understanding.
“She cannot come into contact with cold water, bathe, wash her hair, be exposed to wind…” Bai Qingqing strictly listed out all the things that she couldn’t do when she did her confinement.
Whatever. Giving birth is so easy, anyway. It’s fine if you suffer a bit during confinement.
And health problems due to confinement couldn’t be taken lightly.
“I was restless during my confinement period and inhaled smoke from the iron-smelting room. Now, I cough really badly whenever I inhale smoke.”
Bai Qingqing sighed, feeling slightly regretful.
Edgar immediately declared that he would take good care of Molly during her confinement. Even Molly was convinced.
However, the truth was that Molly gave birth to her female child just as easily as Bai Qingqing gave birth to her leopard cubs.
After lying down for a while, the color returned to her cheeks, and she could even get up and move her muscles a little.
Bai Qingqing really wanted to ask her, “Could you just act more feeble in front of me?”
Molly changed into clean clothes before lying back down in the nest to play with the female child.
“It’s so ugly. It doesn’t look like me at all,” Molly said disdainfully.
Bai Qingqing told her the truth, saying, “Don’t worry. Female children will become prettier when they grow up.”
