When Bai Qingqing came to Edgar’s tree, she saw that Alva was perched on a tree branch, so she called out to him, “You’re back? Where’s Molly? Why aren’t you going in?”
Alva instantly put on a nonchalant expression and said, “It’s not like I’m her male. What am I going to do if I go in—play a game?”
Bai Qingqing raised an eyebrow and teased. “Wasn’t it said that males who rescue a female can ask to become her mate?”
Alva’s gaze flickered, and he said, “The one I like is you, not her.”
“Ooh!” Parker revealed a ferocious expression.
Alva reflexively retreated a step and shut up.
“I’ll bring you up. Hook your arms around my neck.” Parker circled one arm around Bai Qingqing’s body and lifted her off the ground.
Bai Qingqing responded with an “Mm.”
Nearly five months into her pregnancy, Bai Qingqing’s tummy had become very apparent. Thankfully though, Parker had long limbs and could still circle his arms around her waist.
In the tree hole, Molly laid quietly on the grass nest, a piece of animal skin covering her crucial parts. Edgar, holding her hand in his as he crouched beside her, didn’t react when he heard someone entering.
“How is she doing?” Bai Qingqing asked as a means of revealing her identity to prevent herself from being attacked, before cautiously moving closer.
Edgar responded by clutching Molly’s hand even more tightly.
Seeing the large patch of peeled skin on Molly’s arm, Bai Qingqing revealed a pained look. She set down the soup by Edgar’s side and said, “This is meat soup, feed it to her and help her replenish her strength.”
Only then did Edgar spare Bai Qingqing some attention. He cast a grateful look at her, then raised the spoon and fed it to Molly.
Molly had grown visibly thinner, yet even in her unconscious state, she could instinctively swallow the soup. Bai Qingqing felt slightly more at ease.
After finishing more than half of the soup, Molly’s eyelids moved a little, and she slowly opened her eyes.
Bai Qingqing said delightedly, “You’re awake?”
“Ah…” Molly opened her mouth and uttered a single syllable. Gazing at her surroundings, her expression froze.
Edgar quickly set down the bowl and held Molly in his embrace, comforting her agitatedly, “You’re back. Everything’s fine now.”
Bai Qingqing also nodded with a smile.
Molly looked up at Edgar, then at Bai Qingqing. Her lips quivered, then she turned sideways and buried her face in the male’s arms, letting out muffled sobs.
“Hush hush.” The helpless Edgar only knew to hug Molly more tightly, to make her feel a greater sense of security.
After crying for a good while, Molly glanced at Bai Qingqing, then lowered her gaze and said in a choked voice, “This time… I really made a mistake…”
Bai Qingqing comforted her. “You can’t be blamed for this. He was the one who forced himself upon you and got you into this state.”
Molly shook her head. “He’s dead…”
Bai Qingqing was stunned.
“Before he died… he wanted to help me…” That was why he had shoved her out of the cave. Even though it might not have been of any use, for if it wasn’t for Alva, she would have been captured and thrown back in there.
Perhaps males would never find it in their hearts to truly hate the females they loved.
More tears gushed out of Molly’s eyes. “He only did what he did back then because he loved me too much…”
Bai Qingqing said nothing.
Molly then looked towards Edgar and, holding back his hand weakly, she said in a resolute tone, “I won’t ever let you down.”
I’ll never cancel my spousal relationship with any of my mates again!
But Molly only quietly resolved in her heart and wasn’t ever going to say something like that out loud.
She felt it might be a good thing for others to mistakenly think that she was a heartless female, for it would stop those opportunistic males who forced themselves upon females from having designs on her.
Edgar beamed broadly and he happily nodded. “I will be good to you forever.”
