Chapter 914: Delay
Quickly after, a bang rang out and the scorpion beastman on watch was sent flying away. Mitch.e.l.l’s worried voice rang out above Bai Qingqing’s head.
“How are you? Let me take a look.”
Bai Qingqing carried her child with one hand and held onto her forehead with the other. A trickle of blood slowly flowed down onto her palm.
“I don’t need your concern.”
Bai Qingqing avoided Mitch.e.l.l’s touch and went back into the room. However, she b.u.mped her knees into the stone bed, and it felt so painful that she couldn’t stand steadily.
Mitch.e.l.l threw away the firewood and carried Bai Qingqing, placing her onto the bed. He thought to himself that females were too fragile. They could even knock themselves to death when walking. How on earth did she manage to live to this age?
However, when this gentleness was directed at a beautiful female, it was really easy to awaken a male’s desire to protect her. While complaining about Bai Qingqing’s ability to survive, Mitch.e.l.l had a greater desire to take better care of her.
“You’re bleeding. I’ll lick it off for you.” Mitch.e.l.l’s tone sounded as if he was raring to go. Only a feral beast would speak in such a tone when a female was injured.
It was because they didn’t have the opportunity to come into contact with females and thus treated them in the same way as they would males. They didn’t think that there was a need to feel concerned about this bit of bleeding and that it’d probably heal by the next day.
Bai Qingqing turned her head away and avoided his touch, saying impatiently, “That’s enough. Quickly start up the fire.”
Mitch.e.l.l hesitated for a moment before squatting down to start up the fire.
A few sounds of stone knocking rang out, and a hint of orange-red light appeared in the darkness, gradually becoming increasingly brighter.
Bai Qingqing looked at the light and relaxed like a lost s.h.i.+p finding a lighthouse.
She had to hold Mitch.e.l.l back and give her mates time to look for her. They were able to sense her and should be able to find their way over very quickly.
“Are you sure that you’re alright?” Mitch.e.l.l stood up, his back facing the fire while his face integrated into the darkness. It made him appear tall and dangerous.
Bai Qingqing consoled herself that this was just the effect produced by the lighting. She said, “If you’re really worried about me, then let me out.”
“It seems you’re alright.” Mitch.e.l.l slowly got closer to her and even got onto the stone bed.
Bai Qingqing’s heart sank, and she heard him say, “Since your body is fine, then let’s get our relations.h.i.+p settled earlier.”
Bai Qingqing instantly looked at him angrily, moving An’an closer to her chest. “My child wants to eat!”
Mitch.e.l.l looked toward An’an; she had been scratching at Bai Qingqing’s breast. He took a look with interest for a while and guessed that there was where a female’s body was the softest. He must try squeezing it too.
He had seen how the mammals in the oasis had fed their children with milk. Now that he heard Bai Qingqing mentioning this, he immediately believed her.
He didn’t make things difficult for her and said magnanimously, “Go ahead, then. Quickly.”
Bai Qingqing felt both anxious and helpless. She didn’t expect for there to be a day when she’d need An’an to protect her.
She turned her back to him and finally let An’an suck onto the breast that she had been yearning for. An’an immediately sucked hard, her throat making whimpering sounds like a young beast would make.
Bai Qingqing’s heart ached to see that. An’an must be scared too, but she was always holding it in by herself. Bai Qingqing hoped that An’an would cry when she felt scared.
An’an was too closed-up, never seeking for her parents’ help.
This was all because of that darned scorpion poison. It wrecked An’an to this state.
After suffering in Mitch.e.l.l’s hands a few times, even Bai Qingqing, who had always been positive, couldn’t help but want to explode.
“You should know that I could have mated with you when you were knocked out. All scorpion beastmen do this. But I wanted to wait until you were conscious.” Mitch.e.l.l looked at Bai Qingqing as if he was waiting for her touched expression.
