Beauty and the Beasts - Chapter 1222
It still turned out to be a failure.
After everything ended, Muir hugged his mate, who was in a stupor. He felt helpless about the course of events, but the smile he couldn’t suppress exposed his delight and satisfaction.
Bai Qingqing was dying from fatigue. She felt strongly that it was scientific for males to not get aroused often. If they could get aroused as easily as humans did, having one mate was enough to kill one from fatigue, let alone having four.
After pushing the male still pressing down on her, Bai Qingqing said with a hoarse voice, “Why are you still not getting up? So… heavy.”
Muir immediately propped his body up and lowered his head to see his mate under him, her face flushed red. Seeing how tired she looked, Muir’s heart ached for her.
“I’ll carry you back right away.”
Bai Qingqing shrank her head deeper, shaking her head and making a coquettish sound. “No, I’m too lazy to move. I want to lay down for a while outside.”
If she were to lay down for a little longer… Muir was afraid that he might lose control.
He took in a deep breath, wrapping Bai Qingqing with her clothes, then turned to sit up, carrying his mate whom he had wrapped up into a cocoon onto his legs.
This felt much better.
She thought happily, We should expect eagle chicks very soon.
Thinking about many small birds, Bai Qingqing’s anticipation level increased.
The two of them sat quietly on the cliff for over an hour, feeling that life was peaceful and quiet. In the end, it was because Bai Qingqing was hungry that they were willing to get up.
“Let’s not go back straight away. I want to take a bath outside,” Bai Qingqing said sluggishly.
Muir touched her forehead, saying disapprovingly, “The weather is cold.”
“I want to bathe outside,” Bai Qingqing repeated, thinking that she should start to prepare contraceptives now. She couldn’t keep hiding from the others and not let them get close.
Muir naturally gave in. He carried her to a big tree that had lush branches and leaves and hid her there. He then went down to fold leaves into a pot to boil water with, before letting her down to take a bath.
This was a method that Bai Qingqing had taught him when they had to escape toward Sea Cliff back then.
Bai Qingqing stood on the ground with weak legs, staring at Muir’s scorching gaze while she removed her clothes slowly.
Without any towel, she could only scoop water to rinse over her body with her hands. Her movements were very quick, only wanting to wash up quicker and avoid Muir’s straightforward gaze.
Muir’s breathing became rushed, but he didn’t show any improper behavior. He also scooped up water with his big hands and rinsed her body.
“Erm, I can just do it myself.” Bai Qingqing had a strong urge to just jump into the pot.
She wasn’t thick-skinned. Although the two of them had done the most intimate act more than once, she still found it a little embarrassing.
Not stopping, Muir said solemnly, “You’ll catch a cold.”
Alright, then. As long as she could wash up faster.
Bai Qingqing stopped fighting with him and washed even faster.
Only after cleaning her body in detail and even cleaning up the stained snakeskin skirt and animal skin coat did Bai Qingqing agree to head home.
Other than Muir, all three males at home had a sharp sense of smell. Bai Qingqing was very worried that they’d smell something. Thankfully, it was still early and dinner wasn’t cooked yet. Bai Qingqing had Muir prepare something casually, then climbed into the nest and lay down after she was done eating.
An’an wasn’t at home. She must have been brought to Bluepool’s place to play. There was only the sleeping Curtis in the bedroom.
Disturbed by her movements, Curtis woke up from his three-day-long sleep.
