Chapter 612: Reproduction Is an Important Matter

At least Carl was good to her, unlike that green peacock who was proud like a female.
Hmph! It’d be best if Bai Qingqing didn’t accept him. It’d be even better if no females wanted him! She was also going to look for more males and get Alva to regret it to death! Who told him to refuse her.
The excitement on Edgar’s face turned a little fainter. He hugged Molly tightly once again and threw a disgusted look at Carl. He then continued to head home.
Carl quieted down and followed behind them, his lips curling into a smile.
They made quite a big commotion, and Bai Qingqing saw them from her house. She couldn’t help but throw a glance in Alva’s direction.
Molly said that she’d look for Alva first. Did this mean that Alva had rejected her?
They continued the “communal meals” today, and Bai Qingqing still sat by the waterhole. Molly wasn’t in good condition and thus didn’t join in. Carl roasted meat and brought the entire prey back.
The strange thing was that Alva didn’t come out for food, either.
The sky had been clear in the day, but the weather suddenly changed at night. Strong gales blew in the forest, and it was extremely stuffy.
The beastmen quickly finished their dinner and went back to their respective homes.
An explosive thunder erupted, bringing forth heavy rain. As the rain came down in the forest, the air became humid.
“It has finally rained. I’m almost turning stale from the heat.” Bai Qingqing leaned at the tree hole’s entrance and said, breathing in the air brought by the rain outside. She felt that her body was nourished from the inside out.
Parker climbed up while carrying hot water. “Quickly wash up. It’s dark now. Do you need me to help you?”
Bai Qingqing turned to glare at him even though she wasn’t able to see anything clearly anymore.
She didn’t light up the luminous ball and just washed up in the dark. She still felt more at ease not seeing anything.
Winston had his back to her, looking outside. “We’ll need to put on new mud mortar on the city walls we built today.”
“There’s the peacock around, anyway. It’ll be done very quickly with him flying about.” Parker took a look at Curtis, who was coiled up in his nest, not moving. He asked, “Curtis, it’ll rain for the next few days, right?”
Curtis gave Parker a “you’re speaking the obvious” glance.
“Then, we’ll stop work for a few days,” Winston said.
Bai Qingqing felt that this was fortunate and said, “This is good. With Molly in heat, her males will be able to take good care of her.”
Winston had his back to her and said, “Reproduction is the most important matter. Even if we have to continue with our work, I’ll leave a male behind to take care of her.”
“That’s good, then.” After saying that, Bai Qingqing suddenly felt exasperated and said, “I told Molly to keep her guard up against Carl, but I didn’t expect her to accept him as her mate so quickly. It has only been a few days!”
Winston understood rootless beasts the most and said, “He’s not her mate. He’s at most her lover.”
“Then, Carl is quite pitiful as well.” Bai Qingqing thought of how she had almost canceled her spousal relationship with Curtis and suddenly felt a little guilty about it.
However, the reason she couldn’t accept Curtis was, firstly, because she had been forced, and secondly, because she didn’t understand him and couldn’t feel at ease. However, Molly and Carl had known each other for so many years. Why was it that she hadn’t accepted him after all those years, but suddenly did in these few days?
Bai Qingqing couldn’t understand but couldn’t be bothered to think about it. She just continued to wash up.
The humid environment energized Curtis, and he stared at Bai Qingqing’s bare body with his blood-red eyes.
A chill ran through Bai Qingqing’s spine, and she turned to see two pairs of gleaming eyes. One pair was gleaming in green, the other in red. It was clear who they belonged to.
Bai Qingqing hastened to finish washing up.
