Chapter 801: Winston Leaves Home (1)
It was an intoxicating sight.
Relaxing, Bai Qingqing waved at Winston and continued allowing the little silver fishes to cleanse her teeth in a knelt down position.
Bluepool regretfully watched as Winston left, then lowered his head and combed his hair.
This was the longest session Bai Qingqing had ever had with these little silver fishes.
There were too many of them. The moment one batch left, another batch would enter. Slowly, the little silver fishes would leave the moment they came. Finally, no fish swam into Bai Qingqing’s mouth anymore.
Whatever there was to nibble at, they had finished nibbling at it.
Bai Qingqing emerged from the bubble and closed her mouth. Her cheeks felt sore and terribly cold.
But when she licked her teeth, they were incredibly clean and unbelievably smooth.
“I’m freezing.” Bai Qingqing said with shivering teeth.
Parker immediately edged his face closer to her. “I’ll help you lick them warm.”
And then, he really started licking her.
The speechless Bai Qingqing shoved him away disdainfully. “Alright, go back now.”
“You’re leaving so quickly?” The disappointment was evident in Bluepool’s tone. “Aren’t you coming into the water to play with me?”
“I need to go back and feed An’an. Perhaps next time,” Bai Qingqing said apologetically. Bringing Bluepool to land was like locking him up in prison.
“When An’an becomes older, I can bring her into the water and play with you,” said Bai Qingqing.
Bluepool’s eyes lit up, and he nodded vigorously. “Okay!”
After she returned from the waterhole, the freezing Bai Qingqing laid on top of the animal skin-covered bed-stove with her arms and legs spread out to warm herself up.
As the light rainy season ensued, the weather grew increasingly warm.
Gradually, Bai Qingqing started wearing thinner clothing, donning flowy elegant white dresses instead of thick coats.
After a few months of recovery, Bai Qingqing’s figure returned to its svelte form. Now that she was wearing light clothing, she felt much lighter from head to toe and was not quite used to it.
Parker and Winston were fully dedicated to their iron weapon-forging work. Bai Qingqing could take care of An’an all by herself now. Furthermore, with Curtis helping out at home, if she got bored she would simply bring her kids along and stroll around in the village. Although it was boring at times, it was at the same time laidback.
The only vexing thing was, every time there was a full moon, An’an would be in great torment.
Just last night, An’an had cried for the entire night. The tiny human now looked incredibly weak, and even when asleep the fatigue on her little face was evident.
There was heartache in everyone’s eyes as they surrounded An’an.
Winston stroked An’an’s reddened eyes and said, “Qingqing, I’m going to Flame City today.”
Bai Qingqing said nothing and simply gazed quietly at An’an. Only after quite a while did she get to her feet and walk to the wooden case.
“Bring along more animal skins. It’s cold at night in the desert,” Bai Qingqing said in a muffled tone with her back facing everyone.
Winston felt his heart brimming with warmth. He wasn’t planning on bringing along anything with him prior to this, but when he heard Bai Qingqing’s words, he didn’t reject the idea.
Bai Qingqing packed up for Winston and even contained about two liters of water with a porcelain jar with a fat body and a small mouth, then capped it with a wooden cork. In order to prevent breakage, she even planned to sew an animal skin cover for the jar.
Winston lowered his head and watched his spouse as she quietly sewed the animal skin, feeling an itch in his heart as though a light-weight feather had gently grazed upon it. He had an urge to pull the female before him into his arms.
“There’s no need to go to all this trouble. I usually don’t bring anything along with me when I go to Flame City. There’s an oasis over there, so I’ll get to drink water once I reach.”
Bai Qingqing glared at him. “You said you’ll have to walk for three to four days to get there. Are you planning on not drinking water all the way?”
That’s right, that was exactly what Winston had in mind. Moreover, that was what he had been doing all along.
Under the glare of his spouse, for some reason, Winston actually felt sheepish.
