Chapter 954: An’an’s Nanny
After Parker and Muir fled, they went their separate ways. Parker went to meet up with Winston and the others at the lakeside. Muir didn’t leave, either. He continued to stay in the oasis.
Muir would probably not feel at ease until the day Bai Qingqing left the desert.
Right now, Bai Qingqing was seated on a short tree with lush leaves and branches that blocked out the sunlight above her.
She had a red fruit that was a rare sight in the oasis in one hand and roasted meat wrapped up by tree leaves in the other, completely engrossed in eating.
Although Mitch.e.l.l had been very good to her in the few days she was held captive, the best food he could provide her didn’t taste that good. Bai Qingqing was really craving good food.
In the beginning, she was still worried that An’an would go hungry when away from her, but when she saw animals when she went with Curtis to look for food, she felt at ease.
Parker knew that the leopard cubs had drunk the milk of a wild leopard before, and he should think of using animal milk to feed An’an. An’an was now seven months old and her front teeth had grown out. It should be fine for her to eat other food.
A snake was coiled on the top of the tree above Bai Qingqing, his upper body on the tree trunk while his tail hung in the air. He moved slowly, causing the short tree to sway intensely and almost break.
“Don’t move recklessly, the tree might break,” Bai Qingqing said in horror.
Curtis immediately stopped his movements, no longer vicious. However, his countenance would definitely change if those two males were mentioned.
“Ssss~” Curtis felt really uncomfortable to be hanging like this. He could only turn into his human form and slowly climb over to Bai Qingqing’s side, embracing her.
However, with that, light spots would s.h.i.+ne through the gaps of the tree leaves, burning Bai Qingqing’s skin a little.
“Eat less. Don’t let the children grow too big.” Curtis couldn’t help but say when he saw how aggressively she was eating.
Bai Qingqing swallowed a big mouthful of food with difficulty, then thought:
Curtis still remembers the children. He’s not too far gone.
It wasn’t obvious when Curtis was in his snake form, but Bai Qingqing could see how weak he was after turning into his human form. He seemed to be holding in some kind of pain.
The scorpion poison must be making it hard on him.
Bai Qingqing nestled into Curtis’s cool embrace, rubbing her face against his chest worriedly and saying in a soft voice, “Let nature take its course. The children are still young now, so even if I eat more, the nutrition won’t go to them.”
Most importantly, she mustn’t stop producing milk. She must eat more. Even if she couldn’t feed An’an for now, she had to squeeze out the milk. Otherwise, she might stop producing milk in a few days.
Hearing that, Curtis accepted it and said, “You can continue to eat.”
“En.” Bai Qingqing still couldn’t help but ask, “How’s the poison?”
The reply she received was the exact same as what she got earlier. Curtis said indifferently, “It’s fine.”
Bai Qingqing sighed and continued eating. However, her appet.i.te wasn’t as good as before.
At this moment, the lactating sheep that Bai Qingqing saw pa.s.sed by under the tree. There were two small and fat lambs following behind it. They chewed on the lush gra.s.s under the tree, not aware of the predator above them.
Curtis flicked out his tongue, raring to move. This was an animal that Bai Qingqing usually liked to eat. Her teeth weren’t that strong in chewing, and such young animals were the most suitable for her.
Bai Qingqing understood the moment Curtis moved. She stopped eating and turned to hug him.
“I’m full, the next meal will have to wait till night time. It’s better to prepare the food at night.” Bai Qingqing rested her oily chin onto Curtis’s clean and fair chest, nodding as she said this.
This was An’an’s nanny. She mustn’t eat it.
