Chapter 1146: Pregnant Again (2)
Without the snake’s odor on her, only upon sniffing her carefully did Winston detect the obvious change in his spouse’s scent.
This was a scent resembling one going into heat. Even though it was mixed with the intense male odors, he immediately realized that this was a phenomenon only seen in a female during the gestation period.
“What’s wrong?” Bai Qingqing asked suspiciously upon seeing Winston’s abnormal reaction. Could it be that she was really pregnant? Seriously?!
She couldn’t help but glance in Muir’s direction, wondering if she ought to thank him for saving her the trouble of going through menstruation.
Muir’s hopes, which had just been lowered, suddenly soared again. He widened his eyes at Winston.
Winston straightened his back and laid his large palm over Bai Qingqing’s tummy. After a moment of pondering, he then said, “We’d better wait for confirmation from the doctor.”
“Mm.” Bai Qingqing leaned against his chest and nodded docilely.
Muir was unable to remain calm. He looked at Bai Qingqing with a scorching gaze for a while, then paced about the house with the rolled-up wet tree bark in his arms.
After setting the tree bark on the table, he felt that his hands were too empty, so he picked it up and hugged it to his chest once more.
Time passed exceedingly slowly in Muir’s world during this time. There were countless moments where he wanted so much to snatch his spouse from the tiger beastman’s arms and hug her himself, but he understood that he needed to make concessions.
As Harvey lived nearby, in what were merely ten-odd breaths to Bai Qingqing and Winston, a leopard and a human hurried into the house.
Parker stood at the door, shaking the water off his body vigorously. Harvey merely wiped the rainwater off his head with a hand, before gazing towards the trio.
Harvey first cast a complex glance at Bai Qingqing, then towards the city lord who gave off an oppressive vibe. Seeing that there was no objection from him, he then testingly walked towards them.
He merely bent over and sniffed lightly for a bit, then straightened his body and declared affirmatively, “That’s right. Bai Qingqing is pregnant.”
Bai Qingqing felt like she had just been struck by a bolt of lightning. A sense of horror washed over her. There was no end to this giving birth thing, was there?
However, she went on to reveal a gentle smile and subconsciously caressed her tummy, which hadn’t started to show a visible bulge. In any case, she had to give birth to at least a nest of offspring for Muir eventually. Therefore, since she got pregnant, she would take good care of this fetus and just take note to practice birth control in the future.
Muir froze completely, the bundle of tree bark in his arms falling to the ground with a loud “pa!”, attracting the gazes of everyone in the house.
“Congrats.” As Bai Qingqing was the only female in the house, Parker transformed into his human form without any qualms and said as he smoothed his wet golden hair. So long as these weren’t the offspring of that darned snake beastman, it was a cause for celebration.
That’s right. Parker was pitting himself against Curtis for his incredible one-shot-one-kill reproductive prowess.
Winston nodded slightly at Muir as well to express his congratulations.
Only then did Muir snap out of his trance. There was a scorching glow in his eyes and a trace of moisture within, but no tears slipped down ultimately.
Why had he suddenly gotten weak after living for so long?
Outside, Muir was a killing machine. But underneath his cold and tough exterior, there was a soft and sensitive side to him hidden within.
Bai Qingqing was his sole soft spot. Now that they were going to have kids of their own, now that the two of them had created little new lives together, only then did Muir feel like he shared a relationship with Qingqing that was different from others.
There were traces of him inside of Qingqing’s tummy.
When Muir recovered from his dazed state, he snatched Bai Qingqing from Winston’s arms and held her tightly, so tightly it felt as if he was trying to press her into his blood and bones.
Only when he heard the soft moan of the person in his embrace did Muir control his strength and loosened his grip on her. Yet, he was unable to shift his scorching gaze away from his spouse’s face.
