This was the first day the little snakes broke out from the shells, yet they had already understood how brutal nature was.
On the other side, Curtis slowly moved to the window outside the kitchen, raising his body and peeking at the scene inside.
Curtis saw the three of them staying close together. His blood eyes trembled and his hands placed on the windowsill clenched unconsciously, his fingers sinking into the stone.
Parker’s nose twitched and he immediately raised his head to look over. He was caught unaware by a bloodthirsty and ferocious face, giving him such a scare that he let out a howl and the fur on top of his head erupted.
Muir and Bai Qingqing looked over as well.
Muir had already calmed down. His gaze when looking at Curtis no longer had any hostility, but his feelings of intense dislike had intensified.
Curtis was Bai Qingqing’s mate, so he couldn’t possibly kill him. It was nothing to hatch snake eggs. They were all Qingqing’s children and he didn’t feel that it was a waste of effort.
It was just that the snake beastman’s way of doing things put him off, making him feel extremely aggrieved.
Some people didn’t understand Muir’s attitude. He had harbored killing intent toward Curtis in the past, but why did he have no plans on killing him even though he had been bullied and humiliated to this degree?
He could only say that things had changed over time.
Back then, Muir didn’t see any hope. With Curtis around, he’d never be able to get close to Bai Qingqing. The fact that even though he had been watching over Qingqing behind her back for a year but didn’t get to say a single word to her was proof of that. Therefore, he could only take the gamble. Killing Curtis was his only hope to become mates with Bai Qingqing.
But right now, he had already become mates with Bai Qingqing and there was no need for such extreme measures.
If Curtis died, Qingqing would be upset. Therefore, he wouldn’t make a move. Moreover, if it was found out that he had done something, Qingqing would hate him as well. It wasn’t worth it.
“Hmph.” Curtis let out a cold snort and crawled in from the window, flicking out his tongue. He tasted the meat fragrance and opened the pot lid to take a look. His expression relaxed a little.
“I said there’s no need to feed the little snakes for now.” Curtis looked toward Bai Qingqing, his tone sounding helpless, but he was secretly feeling delighted.
Qingqing was still concerned for his children the most. What did Muir matter?
Having been together with Curtis for so long, Bai Qingqing understood him very well too. Even though he pretended to be calm and composed, Bai Qingqing still understood Curtis’s actual thoughts.
She immediately felt guilty. Although this pot of meat paste included the little snakes’ share as well, it was still mostly for Muir’s sake. Before Muir was done eating, she hadn’t thought of letting the little snakes have a taste.
“Cough, it’s just to let them have a taste. Giving them some hot food to warm their bodies up.” To uphold harmony in the family, Bai Qingqing didn’t push Muir out. She picked up a big and clean bowl to scoop up meat paste for the little snakes.
Looking at the porcelain bowl Muir had used placed by the side, Bai Qingqing felt that things were bad and her scalp started to turn numb.
As expected, Curtis also noticed this bowl that had been used before. His expression instantly turned black.
After scooping a big bowl of the meat paste, Bai Qingqing didn’t even look at Curtis but turned to leave. “I’m off to feed the little snakes!”
Muir was having a loving time with Bai Qingqing and couldn’t bear to be apart from her for even a moment, so he immediately got up to follow her.
The flames of fury in Curtis’s heart grew even more. Even the harsh cold couldn’t weaken his disposition as he slithered out agilely.
In just a short moment, Parker ended up being the only one left in the kitchen. He sighed and then resigned himself to continuing to warm up the meat paste.
Bai Qingqing and Muir entered the bedroom in succession. Seeing that there wasn’t a single snake in the room, Bai Qingqing was stunned.
“Where are the little snakes?”
Bai Qingqing quickly walked over to Curtis’s nest, put down the bowl, then rummaged through the grass pile, feeling even more baffled.
Muir recalled that the little snakes were very active and guessed, “They might have crawled out after Curtis left.”
