“Curtis?” Bai Qingqing was still in a state of shock. Her chest heaves violently. She coughs a few times when more fog inhaled into her lungs.
Curtis quickly soothed Bai Qingqing’s back as he frowned and asked, “Do you still have a cold?”
Parker also transformed to a human. His arms stretched out and took away Bai Qingqing by the waist. “My body’s warm. Let me hug Qingqing.”
Curtis looked down at his empty hands.
It has to be said that Parker’s phrase ‘My body’s warm‘ was very destructive to Curtis. Curtis could not help thinking that if he was also warm, he would be able to hold Snow to sleep every night.
Now it’s still the hot season, but Snow still can’t stand his body temperature, and when it gets cold, she will probably touch him even less.
Bai Qingqing coughed a few times with her mouth covered before saying. “No, I’m fine. I just felt stuffy with all this mist. Let’s open the door, shall we?”
Curtis was a little relieved believing she wasn’t feeling cold due to him.
As soon as the door opened, the white mist came in with the blinding light. A cloud of mist floating outside looks like it’s flickering. The captivating scene seemed like an entire world faded into a painting.
Parker said, “Ah! The rainstorm season is coming.”
“What’s the rainstorm season?” Bai Qingqing’s hand waved in front of her. Looking at the sky through the fog layer, the sunlight seemed masked by the fog.
Curtis went to Bai Qingqing’s side and his lips were slightly raised. The look on her face seems like she’s unaware so he explained: “It’s the peak of females’ estrous cycles. It’s the breeding season.”
Parker wondered why the snake was so happy about it. Qingqing already had her cycle this year and won’t have another one during the rainstorm season.
“Er…” Bai Qingqing made an inaudible sound. Curtis must have thought that she had her cycle because of the rainstorm season. Then he would definitely take advantage of this time and demand to mate with her. Crap, it will be over for her.
Even when she’s already married, she still not ready to mate with him. She will definitely lay eggs and have children after.
Her golden youth will be spent on raising snake babies. Her figure will gone out of shape and her face will deteriorate. She couldn’t help thinking of the females she saw when she first came to the tribe. There was one who looked like she attached a huge swimming ring around the waist and the other who had her chest hanging down to her navel. At the thought that she might become like them, Bai Qingqing suddenly shuddered.
Shaking her head, Bai Qingqing asked, “If there’s rainstorm season, is there a drizzle season?”
Parker said, “Yeah, there is. The rainstorm season is the time when it changes from hot season to cold, while the drizzle season is when the cold season turns hot. There are four seasons in a year, the drizzle season, hot season, rainstorm season, and cold season” Parker glanced at Bai Qingqing weirdly. “Idiot, how tiny was the tribe you were born in? How do you not know about this?”
Bai Qingqing was staring daggers at Parker as she got ticked off by him. She retorted peevishly, “There are a lot of people who don’t know, too. I’m a female, what’s the point of knowing all of this?”
Parker scratched the back of his head. “Fine.”
“I’m going to wash my face.” Bai Qingqing walked away from them and ran to the riverside carrying a toothpaste and a toothbrush.
Naturally, Curtis also went to follow her.
Parker looked up at the sky, looking a little worried: “Since it’s the rainstorm season, it’ll be bad if those people aren’t back by the time the rainstorm comes.”
Since the river was chilly in the morning, Bai Qingqing washed her face carefully. She saw the fishing basket half hidden and half visible at the bottom of the water, but she didn’t have the courage to go down and take it out.
It seemed that they will have to tie it down with a wire next time. With that, at least they don’t need to immerse themselves to put the basket back into the water.
A sight of fiery red reflected on the surface of the water, and a few strands of soft long hair swept over Bai Qingqing’s head.
“What are you looking for?” Curtis was looking at the bottom as he asked.
Bai Qingqing looked up at Curtis. “You aren’t afraid of the cold, right?”
