Although the process was painful, the duration wasn’t long. It only took over an hour.
However, to the males, it felt like a century had passed.
After things came to a close, both males felt exceptionally tired. They exchanged a glance and felt some sympathy for each other even though they usually didn’t get along.
“Snow’s body needs to be wiped down.” Curtis greedily touched his mate’s wet hair, not bearing to part from her. Therefore, he ordered Muir to do work.
Muir felt that he was the one who made his mate so weak, so he felt extremely guilty and immediately said, “I’ll go boil water.”
The eggs that were dyed in blood were forgotten under the blankets, with the blood allowed to dry out on the shells.
After cleaning Bai Qingqing’s body, Muir recalled the pile of eggs. He felt a little angry at them, but at the thought that they were the children between Qingqing and himself, he couldn’t get his fury burning.
Curtis threw a glance at him, not saying anything, and just hugged Bai Qingqing quietly.
As Muir looked at the eggs, a hint of pain suddenly flashed in his eyes. He threw a glance at Bai Qingqing and then stood up.
He looked around in the room, then brought a clean animal skin bag over, saying to Curtis, “I’m taking a piece of animal skin. I’ll bring the eggs to Sea Cliff.”
This was the practice of eagle beastmen. Eaglets must hatch at Sea Cliff and grow up there. They must go through tempering and learning in that tough but vast environment, only leaving the place after they came of age. They’d then join a village to look for a mate.
He only had a piece of battered animal skin skirt in the house. If Curtis didn’t agree, he could only make his only skirt into a bag, storing the eggs in them, and leave.
Curtis’s countenance turned cold, and he immediately said, “No!”
Muir wasn’t surprised. He put the bag back into its original spot, took off the skirt from his waist, then put the eggs into it one by one.
“I mean that you aren’t allowed to bring them away.” Curtis squinted his eyes. These were his children. Even if they were to be thrown away, he’d be the one to do it. It wasn’t Muir’s place to do it.
Muir paused, and the tension between the two of them suddenly pulsed again.
Muir let out a cold laugh and sneered, asking, “What right do you have to say that?”
Curtis’s smile suddenly felt a little strange. “Are you so sure that the children are yours?”
“Of course, they are. Otherwise, are they yours?” Muir immediately retorted.
As Parker often mocked Curtis, Muir knew that the last time Curtis had mated with Qingqing was very long ago. Even if the children weren’t his, they could only be Parker’s. Qingqing had only been intimate with Parker over one month ago.
However, back then, Qingqing was already pregnant. Moreover, she had just laid eggs, so there was no way that these would be Parker’s children.
Curtis looked at him as if he was an idiot. He didn’t give any explanation and just said coldly, “I’m not allowing the eggs to get even one step away from this house!”
Muir immediately let out a low growl from his throat, and the black eyes on his head started to turn vertical. Curtis also revealed battle intent. Bai Qingqing was between the two of them, and they looked like they were going to fight.
Seemingly affected by their pressure, she uncomfortably moaned even while unconscious.
The duo’s expressions changed, and they immediately forgot the threat in front of them and turned to look toward her.
Muir had been unwilling to part with Bai Qingqing, to begin with. That was why he had decided to leave while she was still unconscious, for fear that he’d be soft-hearted. After hearing her voice, his determination started to waver again.
He really… couldn’t bear to part with Qingqing.
Due to this unwillingness to part with her, Muir started to find excuses for himself.
Winston had to manage the City of Beastmen, Curtis was about to go into hibernation, and Parker wasn’t at home. It seemed that he had no choice but to stay behind.
