Chapter 647: I’m Coming to Sleep
She hadn’t noticed anything at all. Did she conduct herself poorly? Did the two of them see it?
At the same time, Bai Qingqing was also thankful that she didn’t know about it back then. Otherwise, she’d feel extremely awkward.
Anyway, it was all Curtis’s fault!
As if he had eyes on his back, Curtis replied at a suitable timing, “It saves time to bring it up then.”
The weather had gotten cold, and he couldn’t hug Snow to sleep anymore. Rather than letting the leopard have Snow all to himself, it was better to have Winston join in. This wouldn’t let Snow be overly reliant on a particular male.
With that, when the hot season came in the following year, his status wouldn’t be too much affected.
Bai Qingqing had dinner in the tree hole. Parker took this time to lay the animal skin padding that had been dried and fluffed up during this period on the grass pile. He also changed the blanket to a thicker one.
In the past, Bai Qingqing slept by the wall. Now with Winston here, she’d have to sleep in the middle. Therefore, Parker decided to sleep on the inside. He purposely picked a cushion that wasn’t too big, so that Winston wouldn’t have enough space at the side.
If Bai Qingqing were to know of what was going on in Curtis’s and Parker’s minds, she’d definitely say: “A bunch of schemers!”
After she finished dinner and rinsed her mouth, Winston kept the dishes and was planning to go down the tree to wash them.
Seeing the strong gales and heavy storm outside, Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but think back to the City of Beastmen’s stone house and castle. “Staying in a house is still more convenient.”
The tree hole was very cozy, but it was really not that good. It was neither safe nor convenient. The reason they were living in such conditions was that this village was falling behind times and didn’t know how to build houses.
Winston walked to the tree hole’s entrance and paused when he heard that. He said, “I can build a house during the heavy rainy season. We’ll be able to move in by the cold season.”
“Really?” Bai Qingqing asked in surprise, then shook her head, saying, “You’re going to brave the rain to build a house? No, that can’t do. You’ll fall sick. We’ll take it slow.”
The corners of Winston’s lips curled up slightly. He didn’t say anything but grabbed onto the entrance with one arm and then jumped out.
Parker jumped onto the clean and freshly laid bedding and patted the spot next to him. “Qingqing, quickly come over and sleep.”
After eating her fill, Bai Qingqing started to feel drowsy and went into the embrace of the soft bed. Parker flipped up the blanket and covered both of them.
“Ah!” She let out a surprised cry. “An’an moved.”
The movement from her stomach caught Bai Qingqing unaware, and she was pleasantly surprised. It seemed that doing that deed reasonably was beneficial to the child.
Parker immediately put out his hand to touch it. The baby’s movement was very light, and Parker’s thick skin was unable to feel it at all. He flipped Bai Qingqing’s dress and pressed his palm onto her stomach to feel it.
Bai Qingqing didn’t complain about his action but said excitedly, “She moved again! Did you feel it?”
“No.” Parker felt a little upset, shrinking his head under the blankets and putting his face onto her stomach.
Still no reaction. Parker had a strong doubt that Muir was lying when he said that the babies had kicked his face. Wouldn’t Qingqing be in pain if the babies could kick his face through her stomach?
Bai Qingqing said helplessly, “She stopped moving!”
“Sigh!” Parker continued to listen for a while before giving up in discontent.
Winston came back, drenched. He swung his head by the entrance. “What stopped moving?”
“An’an. An’an moved a little just now, so I was letting Parker listen.”
“Is that so?” Winston looked at the bulge under the blanket, revealing a yearning gleam in his eyes. However, he didn’t say anything.
God knew how much he wanted to touch that stomach that was nurturing a life.
Winston’s heart palpitated when he saw the empty spot next to Bai Qingqing. Despite having been through great turbulences, he stuttered a little.
“I… I’m coming to sleep.”
