Chapter 688: Winston Was Reprimanded

Harvey didn’t dare to voice out this speculation. Recalling that Bai Qingqing’s other spouses weren’t home, he guessed, “Could it be due to a change in lifestyle habits?”
“Does diet count?”
Bai Qingqing thought about it for a moment, then said, “Should I not be eating sour oranges? I’ve added oranges to my diet these few days.”
Winston’s culinary skills had improved greatly since. Although it still couldn’t compare with Parker’s, it was considered quite delicious, and at the very least not poisonous.
“No, it’s normal for pregnant women to crave sour foods.” Harvey shook his head.
Although he didn’t tell Bai Qingqing about the dreadful possibility, his heavy mood affected her.
About to burst into tears, Bai Qingqing clutched Winston’s hands tightly and said, “What about the meat of floating beasts? Ever since they started swarming in, I’ve been eating them. But An’an’s been fine all along.”
Harvey shook his head again. “It’s actually highly suitable for pregnant females to consume the meat of floating beasts to nourish their bodies.”
Bai Qingqing licked her lips and, after hesitating for a good while, summoned her courage and asked, “Could it be because we didn’t… err… mate?”
Winston tightened his grip and widened his eyes, as though something suddenly occurred to him.
Bai Qingqing gasped and retracted her hands. “It hurts.”
Winston quickly loosened his grip. Seeing Bai Qingqing’s hand speedily redden, he hurriedly held it up. “Does it hurt very much? I’ll blow upon it to ease the pain.”
As he spoke, Winston breathed out hot air upon Bai Qingqing’s hand. Yet, her hand turned increasingly red.
As he had greater brute force than Parker, a subconscious pinch would cause Bai Qingqing’s hand to swell up.
Harvey cast a reprimanding glance at Winston. “I’ll go down and pick some herbs so that the swelling will heal faster.”
Bai Qingqing wanted to smile but only managed a bitter one. “No need, all I want is for An’an to get well soon.”
Now that things had gotten to this point, Bai Qingqing cast aside her embarrassment and went straight to the point. “Harvey, would not mating affect the fetus?”
“Of course,” Harvey replied right away.
“Mating helps the baby become lively. There isn’t a need for the pregnant mother to mate if the fetus is healthy. But your situation is unique and the baby is too weak, so you need to mate to stimulate the fetus into moving.”
Bai Qingqing froze. “Is that the case?”
Harvey then looked towards Winston, rage visible on his face. “I’ve instructed your mates that you need to mate once every three days. Winston, have you forgotten all about it?”
Under Harvey’s furious and reprimanding gaze, though he appeared stern on the outside, Winston’s heart was pounding wildly internally.
Curtis did instruct him on this, but he… really forgot all about it. Even though he often felt tortured in the face of seduction from his spouse’s presence.
Looking at Winston who had turned stiff as a rock statue, Bai Qingqing couldn’t help feeling awkward.
“Err… Harvey, you can’t blame this on him,” Bai Qingqing said meekly.
Harvey was even madder to hear this.
With such a sweet and thoughtful spouse, if Winston was going to be this cold, why had he become mates with her in the first place?
Regarding the matter of mating, it was indeed a conflicting matter. Males usually wouldn’t mate randomly, for the loss of semen wasn’t beneficial to one’s leveling up.
This was why many males weren’t willing to mate when their females were pregnant.
But Harvey hadn’t expected that the wonderful Bai Qingqing’s males would be unwilling.
This was infuriating!
“How many days has it been since you last mated?” Too angry to even look at him, Harvey simply turned away. Seeing as Winston was so powerful, Harvey presumed it must be because he couldn’t bear to part with his semen.
Bai Qingqing quietly calculated in her heart. They didn’t do it the day before Curtis left, and he had left for five days since. So, that made a total of six days.
Harvey was so overwhelmed by anger that he revealed his fangs.
Bai Qingqing hurriedly stopped him, fearing Harvey would bite Winston.
