Bai Qingqing held onto a thin animal skin and walked over to his nest.

Curtis took a glance at Bai Qingqing and made some s.p.a.ce for her.

Bai Qingqing lay down beside him, looking at him with a gaze as if she wanted to say something.

Curtis raised his hand and covered her eyes, saying with an emotionless voice, “If you’re tired, sleep.”

Bai Qingqing hugged him, her slightly trembling voice revealing her anxiety. “Curtis…”

Curtis’s heart softened, and he hugged her tightly, his tone sounding gentler. “Before she hurts you, I won’t hurt her.”

This meant that if Bai Qingqing insisted on bringing An’an to the desert to look for Winston, Curtis wouldn’t be able to put up with An’an anymore.

Bai Qingqing let out a bitter sigh, forcing back the tartness in her eyes, and replied in a soft voice, “En. I won’t let anything happen to me, either.”

There was no way to get her to give up on An’an.

However, if she were to head for the desert one day, she’d naturally take care of her own life. Her life concerned the happiness of three males.

An’an cried for the entire night and then fell asleep weakly after the sun came up. There was no waking her up even when they were bathing her. She continued to be groggy for the next few days, her clear eyes looking as if a layer of mist had enshrouded them. She looked very listless.

The thought of wanting to head to Flame City was like a seed that was planted in Bai Qingqing’s heart. It germinated and grew at an unstoppable rate.

Bai Qingqing had decided to go to the Flame City. The faster, the better. However, she was unsure about Curtis’s att.i.tude and was hesitating over whether she should ask for his help.

It was until one accident caused her to make up her mind.

One morning, when the morning dew had dried up, Bai Qingqing carried An’an on her back and ran into the bedroom.

“Curtis, I’m bringing An’an out to play.”

Curtis looked up at the mother and daughter and flicked out his tongue.

Bai Qingqing greeted Curtis and then walked out of the stone castle. She then headed to the iron-smelting room to look for Parker.

The iron-smelting room was like a furnace in the hot season. From afar, the air in front of the door was slightly distorted from the uneven temperature. Knocking sounds rang out through the door.

Although Parker was young, he was very serious when he was doing work. He didn’t even notice that Bai Qingqing was there. He was fully focused on watching the iron tool in the fire.

“Parker, your mate has come.”

An envious voice rang out, and Parker immediately looked up. Only then did he notice Bai Qingqing’s existence.

Placing the iron piece in cold water, Parker quickly ran to the door, pulled Bai Qingqing, and headed out.

“Why have you come?” Parker asked.

“Cough cough…” Bai Qingqing smelled the scent of coal, and her lungs felt upset. She coughed for quite a while before she could talk.

“Parker.” Bai Qingqing glanced toward the stone castle and said with a soft voice, “I want to go look for Winston. He might need our help. Let’s go to the desert.”

The smile on Parker’s face gradually froze up, his golden eyes locked onto his mate’s beautiful face. He remained silent for very long before solemnly nodding.

“Alright.” Parker also looked toward the stone castle. “What about Curtis?”

“I don’t know, either,” Bai Qingqing said, feeling distressed.

Parker smirked. “Snake beastmen are all cold-blooded. The more he loves you, the more selfish he will be. He won’t let you take risks for An’an. Let’s go by ourselves. Curtis won’t catch up to us.”

Bai Qingqing’s expression was hesitant.

Parker embraced Bai Qingqing to console her and then a.n.a.lyzed things for her rationally.

“The temperature of the desert in the day is higher, and it’s not convenient for him to travel. The temperature at night is low and he’ll be sluggish. The time he can use to chase after us is very short. There’s no need to be afraid of him!”
