Chapter 721: It’s Not Easy Raising a Baby (1)
Bai Qingqing couldn’t wait to move into the new house and see what was inside. She said to Winston, “Move some things over there first, will you?”
“Okay.” Winston said, “I’ll bring the animal skins newly made this year over first, and leave everything else here.”
Winston gazed at Bai Qingqing, then towards the asleep An’an, before forcing himself to leave the tree hole.
more than ten superior animal skins were hanging on the tree branches outside. Winston removed them from the branches, before rolling them into a bundle and heading to the stone castle.
Since he didn’t have much else to busy himself with, Winston went to knock off some rocks and started constructing an enclosing wall around the stone castle.
After eating breakfast, Bai Qingqing took a short nap, and at noon Harvey came over to visit her again.
He was delighted to see that she was in good spirits. He asked, “How are you feeling now?”
“Hurts so much I thought I was going to die.” As she spoke, she couldn’t help but cast a glance at An’an, who was lying beside her. Despite the physical pain, her heart was brimming with joy.
“I picked some medicinal herbs that can alleviate the pain this morning. Parker took them to wash. After crushing it, apply it over your wound and you’ll feel much better.” As he spoke, he subconsciously glanced at her private part.
“Okay, thanks,” Bai Qingqing replied. Looking up to see where Harvey was staring, her face heated up instantly.
Damn! Did Harvey lift the blanket and looked at that spot yesterday? How was she going to face him in the future?
Why didn’t Curtis and Parker stop him?! It wasn’t like Harvey could help with his eyes.
A flush crept up on Bai Qingqing’s pale and bloodless face. She turned sideways and buried her face in Curtis’s embrace.
“Do you wish to take a nap?” Curtis asked softly. He then cast a meaningful glance at Harvey.
Harvey caught this meaning and immediately bade farewell. “If there’s nothing else, I’ll get going first.”
“Please go home safely.” Bai Qingqing looked towards him out of politeness and waved at him.
Something suddenly occurred to him, making him say, “By the way, Molly is about to give birth too. Don’t speak to her too much, lest it makes her nervous.”
Bai Qingqing silently mourned for Molly in her heart. “I will.”
After Harvey left, Parker came up with the medicinal paste, which felt cooling upon application. Indeed, it alleviated the pain by quite a lot.
Bai Qingqing was about to take a nap when An’an let out a “hmph” sound with her eyes closed. Following which, she crumpled her tiny red face that was so tender it felt like there wasn’t skin over it. Seems like she was about to start crying.
All the drowsiness instantly vanished. Bai Qingqing quickly extended a hand, but a tanned and large hand reacted even faster than her, picking up An’an before she managed to do so.
“She must be hungry. Give An’an to me.” Bai Qingqing reached out and twisted her body to sit up.
Parker handed the baby to her. Seeing Bai Qingqing’s bare and exposed skin due to the feeding, he asked concernedly, “Are you cold?”
Curtis pulled up the blanket and wrapped her even more firmly.
Parker said, “I’ll go get a basin of fire.”
With that, he went down. As the fire was ready-made, very soon Parker came up with a large piece of hard firewood burning brightly, causing a smoky smell to spread throughout the tree hole.
Bai Qingqing, who finally found an excuse to open the tree hole, immediately said, “Gosh, there’s so much smoke. Quickly open up the entrance and let in the fresh air.”
Parker went over as told, but merely removed a few tufts of grass, leaving a small gap to let in the fresh air.
Though not very satisfied, Bai Qingqing didn’t say anything since at least they weren’t in danger of carbon dioxide poisoning.
As An’an had a small appetite, she finished drinking her fill in no time and loosened her bite. Yet, she continued to make grunting noises while flailing her tiny limbs.
