In the blink of an eye, they were halfway through the heavy rainy season. Due to the rising tide, insects, snakes, and prawns could be seen all over the floor. Even fishes were moving about in the bushes.
Bai Qingqing liked to run to the back door of the kitchen to take a look every now and then. And when she saw fishes or prawns, she would ask Muir to pick them up. These days, Muir stayed glued by Bai Qingqing’s side every day, looking like her personal bodyguard and doubling as her personal maid.
Now that meat was almost always behemoth meat, it was quite nice to occasionally mix it up with fish or prawn.
“There’s a fish over there. Quick, don’t let it get away!” Bai Qingqing shouted merrily as she pointed at a fish in the bush by the river, excitedly jumping up and down.
Muir glanced at her. In his euphoria, he was inevitably a tad hasty in his actions, causing him to slide and fall into the water, startling the fish, which then quickly scurried away.
“Sorry, I’ll go catch it back right away.” As his body didn’t sink into water easily, the moment he landed in the water, he buoyed up to the surface like a bubble. Ignoring the aquatic plant on his head, he speedily gazed around.
That fish was nowhere in sight. He felt extremely bad.
Bai Qingqing, however, had long forgotten about that fish. She anxiously urged, “Quickly get up.”
Muir froze, surprised that after he had let that fish she desired so much slip away from him, what she worried about was his body instead.
He had always known what a wonderful female Bai Qingqing was, and how gently she treated her spouses. But when this gentleness descended upon him, he still couldn’t help but feel overwhelmed with honor.
Propping his hands against the ground, Muir leaped from the water, his actions as beautiful and agile as that of a pugilist expert. Bai Qingqing was stunned by the sight, almost feeling like she had landed in a pugilistic world.
Bai Qingqing praised internally: What amazing arm strength!
However, now, the only animal skin skirt that Muir owned was drenched.
During this past month, Muir had been wearing that one piece of animal skin that more or less resembled a rag. Though Bai Qingqing took it to heart, there was nothing she could do about it.
There weren’t extra animal skins in the house to be made into skirts for him. If she secretly altered using her own clothes, she was bound to be discovered. Also, she could forget about asking Curtis for it. On the other hand, though Winston was easy-going, he only had two skirts at present. As for Parker, even though he had plenty, the size wouldn’t fit Muir.
As her gaze fell upon a rope on a tree trunk by the river, Bai Qingqing’s eyes lit up. She said to Muir, “Since your skirt is wet anyway, why don’t you go into the water once more? Pull up that tree bark, and it should be ready after soaking for a month.”
Muir went into the water without hesitation and felt around for the tree bark, dragging it up and, at the same time, brushing away the sediments on the surface.
The soaked tree bark fiber was soft, fluffy, and clean, like a gigantic carpet. If she hadn’t seen it extracted from the tree bark with her own eyes, Bai Qingqing wouldn’t dare to believe that it was a substance that originated from tree bark.
A vibrant smile bloomed on Bai Qingqing’s face. She rubbed her hands enthusiastically and said, “Finally I get to work my magic. Come, let’s make an animal skin skirt for you using tree bark!”
Muir: “?” Err, this was for him?
Paying no heed to how astounded he was, Bai Qingqing grabbed a short piece of the tree bark and pulled Muir away. “It’s too dirty here. Let’s go to the main hall and spread open the tree bark.”
“Err… oh.” Muir dazedly responded. Although he felt that wearing such a thing was rather queer, he willingly accepted this, his heart brimming with sweetness.
The duo ran into Winston and Parker in the main hall, who happened to enter from the outside.
As it had been a month since they saw each other, both Bai Qingqing’s and Parker’s eyes lit up with delight, and they unanimously walked towards each other.
Following that, the two of them locked in an embrace as if they were the only ones in the room. The rainwater from Parker’s body moistened Bai Qingqing’s clothes, but neither of them noticed it.
