Chapter 907: Curtis Boasting
Unlike the plants in forests, the plants in the oasis were all short and st.u.r.dy. Even their leaves were the type where water wouldn’t evaporate easily from.
Such as citrus-typed trees.
There was a large patch of bushes that grew near the lake and had golden fruit growing off them. Bai Qingqing was attracted by their bright colors and ran over while wearing the bark slippers. She immediately recognized them as lemons.
“Why is it lemons.” Bai Qingqing looked disappointed.
The air emitted a refres.h.i.+ng and invigorating fragrance of lemons in the air. It smelled quite comfortable. Bai Qingqing inhaled deeply and plucked off a lemon.
Lemons were actually scared of both the hot and the cold, and would usually not grow in the desert. It probably had gotten accustomed to the environment for them to be able to fruit.
The fruits growing in places where there were stark temperature differences between the day and the night were usually sweet.
Bai Qingqing decided to give it a try and started peeling it.
Parker was playful and had gone wild. Winston followed next to Bai Qingqing’s side, immediately taking the fruit from her and peeling it with ease.
“It smells fragrant. It should be delicious,” Winston said with a deep voice. There were similar fruits in the forest as well, so he didn’t have his guard up. He peeled the fruit and handed it to Bai Qingqing.
She hoped that it’d be the case.
Bai Qingqing felt a sour taste in her mouth just from smelling it. However, after eating the dried jerky for so many days, this sourness suddenly felt alluring.
Bai Qingqing was really craving for it. She couldn’t be bothered to break it up and just took a bite out of the round lemon.
Bai Qingqing’s expression instantly became distorted.
That sourness was indescribable!
She only took a very small bite. However, she was still dealt a blow from the intense sourness.
Winston’s countenance changed. He thought that it was poisonous and immediately s.n.a.t.c.hed the lemon from her hand, throwing it away. He put his finger into Bai Qingqing’s mouth that couldn’t close up after tasting the sourness, digging the small piece of lemon out.
“Quickly spit it out!” Winston said anxiously.
Parker heard the commotion and ran back quickly. “Howl?”
Bai Qingqing spat out a mouthful of saliva and waved her hand at them. It was so sour that she couldn’t speak properly, and her voice was all blurry. “It’s fine. It’s just very sour.”
Parker’s nose twitched, and he ran over to the lemon that had fallen onto the sand, lowering his head and giving it a lick.
Parker let out a sound that was akin to Bai Qingqing’s, looking as if he had been frozen into a popsicle, unable to close his mouth.
Bai Qingqing kept on swallowing her saliva and laughed. “How’s the taste?”
Parker fell to the ground with a stiff body.
Bai Qingqing laughed even harder, holding onto her stomach and begging to be spared. “Parker, stop making me laugh. I’m going suffer from a miscarriage if I continue laughing like this, hahahaha…”
Both Parker and Winston were surprised and looked toward her stomach.
Parker immediately got up and changed into his human form, asking, “You’re pregnant again?… That’s true, your scent in heat has dissipated.”
“Curtis says that I’ve definitely gotten pregnant. He said that mating with a snake beastman can definitely impregnate a female.” Bai Qingqing pouted, touching her stomach.
Parker snorted and said with twitching lips, “He must be boasting. How can it be so spot on? Your period hasn’t come yet.”
Bai Qingqing smiled and shook her head. “They say that it’s possible to have birth control during the lactation phase. But there’s also the saying that there isn’t a single method that can guarantee absolute birth control.”
As Bai Qingqing said that, she touched her stomach, looking a little worried. “I feel that I should have gotten pregnant. I hope that it won’t affect An’an’s milk. I’m only worried that I’ll stop producing milk.”
Winston’s countenance also changed slightly. He pursed his lips, not saying anything.
Parker threw a glance at him and then said loudly, “Anyway, I don’t believe it. Curtis must be boasting.”
