But it was unknown if Winston would be able to remain so calm when he got to see Bai Qingqing’s entire body.
He took the broom from Bai Qingqing and said as he stroked her head, “Are you tired? You can go inside and rest.”
Of course, Bai Qingqing was tired. In order to pretend she was fine, she even gritted her teeth. Upon hearing this, she gazed at Winston with a touched expression in her eyes. “You’re the best.”
With that, Bai Qingqing gave him a sweet smile and then turned around and ran off. She had no idea of the lingering look in Winston’s eyes as he watched her leave.
Shaking his head helplessly, Winston’s lips arched in a smile as he recalled his spouse’s grateful expression.
The moment Bai Qingqing entered the house she fell onto the bed, feeling so stuffed she didn’t want to move at all.
Curtis curled a tail over from far away and gently rubbed her tummy, saying suddenly, “What a coincidence.”
“What’s a coincidence?” Bai Qingqing stuck out her little belly and tilted her head sideways to look at him.
The last time she was pregnant with baby snakes it was also in the heavy rainy season, about the same period as this time. When she was due to give birth, he was going into hibernation, so he had to spare some attention to the snake eggs under his abdomen. It was truly hard on him.
However, this time…
Curtis let out another joyful chuckle. “Nothing.”
Bai Qingqing had no idea what he was laughing about, but she smiled as well. It was rare for the atmosphere to be so devoid of tension. She relaxed and moved the snake’s tail aside, then rolled up her blanket and ran to him.
“I’ll sleep with you since it’s not too cold yet.” Bai Qingqing squeezed beside Curtis with her blanket. “Move aside a little, I want to sleep in the center.”
Curtis took a deep look at her, before doing as he was told.
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief and quietly rolled out her blanket before lying down facing Curtis.
A man as possessive as Curtis probably found it harder than a man from modern times to tolerate his spouse being involved with other men.
But what was she to do? She didn’t wish for this, either; from the start, she had never wanted to have more than one partner.
Accepting Curtis was mostly her being forced by circumstances at the time. As for Winston, it was an accident. And towards Muir, it was responsibility. Even in Parker’s case, it was in a moment of desperation.
If she had the chance to slowly choose, she would at least have to date that person for a period of time before committing to becoming spouses.
She didn’t have that high an EQ, she wasn’t able to cope with the emotions of all her spouses.
Curtis said nothing, so Bai Qingqing merely gazed at him quietly, an imperceptible sorrow in her eyes.
Curtis suddenly covered her eyes. That pained look broke his heart, making him unable to look at her further.
Bai Qingqing gave him a pursed-lip smile and wheedled as she hugged his arm. “Come inside too. I want to hold you while I sleep.”
Curtis dotingly planted a gentle kiss on his spouse’s forehead and transformed into a human, before obediently squeezing his way into the blanket. Bai Qingqing instantly wrapped her arms around his icy body and gently rubbed her face against his shoulder.
“Curtis, let’s move elsewhere.” Bai Qingqing’s voice suddenly rang inside the quiet house.
Bai Qingqing smiled and said, “I’m just casually mentioning it. In the future when we grow old, let’s move to an uninhabited island, or somewhere with abundant resources but where none of our natural enemies reside.”
However, Curtis knew that she wished to leave right now because she feared having another male fall for her again. The softhearted her couldn’t bear for anyone to be sad over her, but because of that, she herself ended up the saddest, even though as a female she was supposed to lead a worry-free life.
“What are you thinking? No such place exists. We’re not moving,” Curtis declared decisively.
Bai Qingqing glared at him. “How could it be? When I first got to know you, didn’t you say you were going to bring me to a place where no one else lived?”
