Chapter 136: It Wouldn’t Hurt Next Time, Right?

Parker was reluctant to let go of her and was about to go out to fetch some rainwater with her in his arms when Cortis came back with a basin of clear water.
Upon hearing Cortis’s voice, Bai Qingqing’s body involuntarily trembled. Holding her even more tightly in his arms, Parker twisted his head towards Cortis and ferociously snapped at him. “Get out. You’ve startled Qingqing.”
Cortis’s hands clenched by his sides. The backs of his hands were so tense one could see the structure of the bones underneath. After quietly standing for a moment, his legs transformed into a snake’s tail. Shaking his tail, he crawled to a corner and curled up by the wall.
Bai Qingqing felt that Parker’s words were too hurtful. But he did that because of her, so she couldn’t very well rebut him. She shoved at Parker and said, “Bring me a set of clothes. It’s so dark in the house, I can’t see a thing.”
Parker let Bai Qingqing sit on his lap and said, “I’ll help you wash up.”
Bai Qingqing repeatedly shook her head and got up. “No need, I can wash up myself.”
Parker could only let it rest. He ran to the wooden box and found clothes made out of tiger skin.
Bai Qingqing squatted by the side and cleansed her body with the water from the basin. Although it was very dark inside the house, she knew that the two males had night vision, so she could only feign ignorance.
When she touched it gently, she felt a sharp pain there. She could feel a sticky substance on her fingers—this substance was originally cold, but it was now heated up by her body temperature.
Parker walked to Bai Qingqing with the clothes. Twitching his nose, he crouched down next to her. “You’re bleeding again.”
Bai Qingqing’s hand froze. Had her hymen ripped?
Bai Qingqing gazed in Cortis’s direction. Surprisingly, she felt joy in her heart. She and Cortis had copulated, hadn’t they? This was the first time she was so intimate with someone. Bai Qingqing felt her face heating up.
The next time… it wouldn’t hurt again, right?
Parker gazed at the spot where Bai Qingqing was bleeding. No idea what came to his mind, but his breathing started becoming heavier.
When he recalled how the fragile Qingqing was struggling when he just returned, Parker’s heart ached as though it was being gripped by a large hand. Those few days after Qingqing was captured by the snake beastman, she was treated this way by him every day, wasn’t she?
“That abominable snake.” Parker cupped Bai Qingqing’s head, his heart aching for her. He silently swore to treat Qingqing doubly well, to make up to her for the pain she had suffered.
Bai Qingqing turned her body slightly and said with a flushed face, “Don’t touch me. Turn around.”
Parker, who had all along prided himself as Bai Qingqing’s male, had always ignored her rejections of him. However, this time he was particularly submissive. He said softly, “Okay.”
He then turned around and sat on the ground with his back facing her, his eyes staring ferociously at the snake beastman.
Cortis’s upper body was curled up on his tail, and he couldn’t be bothered with the pair of eyes that were fixed on him.
After a while, Bai Qingqing finally managed to wash away those weird substances and put on her clothes. As she had washed her feet, she didn’t wish to walk on the ground, so she poked at Parker’s arm and said, “I’m done washing.”
Cortis immediately looked up and was prepared to get up, but Parker scooped up water before he could do so. Cortis fell back on his tail, a dejected expression on his face.
Bai Qingqing didn’t know what Cortis was doing, or even where he was. In the darkness, Parker’s temporary absence made her feel uneasy.
Thankfully, Parker was even more worried than her and returned within several seconds. After informing Bai Qingqing, he started a fire in the main room.
With light in the house, Bai Qingqing felt much more at ease. Seeing Cortis sleeping, she said, “Cortis, eat before you sleep.”
