“Alright,” Winston replied. Curtis didn’t have any objections.
Bai Qingqing’s expression collapsed. It hadn’t been easy for her to come out. But before she could even get down to have fun, they had to go back again.
When they went back, Winston still passed her to Curtis.
It was a little cold against Curtis’s skin. Bai Qingqing hid in the animal skin coat, only exposing her head after they had reached home.
The moment they entered the room, Bai Qingqing crawled into the nest, gasping, and said, “It’s so cold.”
“I’ll go start up the fire.” Winston immediately jumped out of the window.
Curtis followed her to the nest and saw figurines of the entire family by the bedside table. A hint of surprise flashed in his eyes, and he picked up the porcelain figures of himself and Bai Qingqing.
“This is… us?” Curtis’s voice was filled with surprise.
Bai Qingqing popped her head out from under the blanket, grinning, and said, “That’s right. We made them by burning the mud from the bottom of the waterhole. You can call them porcelain. We have many porcelain bowls at home as well.”
Curtis took a close look at the “Bai Qingqing” porcelain doll, his eyes filled with glee. “It’s really well made. It looks a lot like you.”
Bai Qingqing pouted in jealousy, tugging at the animal skin, and said, “That was made by Parker.”
“En.” Curtis didn’t seem to care and carefully stroked the porcelain doll.
Bai Qingqing’s displeasure grew, and she covered her head with the blanket.
Only then did Curtis notice her abnormality. He asked in a soft voice, “What’s the matter?”
“I was the one who made yours.” Bai Qingqing’s upset voice rang out from under the blankets.
Only then did Curtis notice the figurine he was holding in his other hand. It was extremely exquisite, and even details of the scales on his snake tail could be seen. If it wasn’t because his attention was drawn away by her porcelain doll, he’d definitely not have neglected this one.
His big pale hand clenched the porcelain figurine even tighter. Curtis’s effeminate voice sounded a little agitated. “This is well done too.”
“Hmph.” Bai Qingqing still felt upset. Could it be that the one she made was really not comparable to Parker’s?
The ones she made were extremely detailed. Parker only did hers well, but the ones of the children were all a mess. They only looked decent after they had been worked on after they had been toasted dry.
The bed-stove heated up very quickly, and the air in the room also warmed up.
Another hint of surprise flashed in Curtis’s eyes. He swung his snake tail on the bed-stove and then immediately drew it away as if he had been electrocuted.
When Bai Qingqing heard the sounds, she guessed that Curtis had been scorched. She immediately flipped up the blanket.
“You were burned?” Bai Qingqing asked anxiously, checking his countenance, and then looked at his tail.
Curtis faintly smiled and swung his tail up again. This time around, he was prepared and didn’t flick it away. He even rubbed against the floor, clearly enjoying it.
“This bit of temperature can’t hurt me,” said Curtis, smiling.
Bai Qingqing felt relieved.
Winston climbed in through the window again, holding onto a necklace that she hadn’t seen for very long.
Bai Qingqing had almost forgotten about this, and she quickly told Curtis about it, “This is something Winston found in a very deep place. It’s extremely sturdy. Look at the floor there.”
Curtis looked in the direction she was pointing to. There was a round scar on that part of the floor, and mud had been used to fill it up.
“It was smashed by this stone?” Curtis made a guess and took the necklace from Winston.
Bai Qingqing nodded. “Thereafter, I put it under my pillow and had nightmares every night. After it was removed, they stopped. There’s a high chance that the problem is with this necklace.”
Winston also felt that this piece of rock wasn’t simple and thus brought it out to show Curtis.
“I also tried putting it under my pillow and slept with it for a few days, but there wasn’t any effect,” Winston said.
