However, Bai Qingqing, whose heart had risen to her throat, wasn’t in the mood to admire that.
Could it be that the liquid had melted off her face?
“What’s the matter?” Bai Qingqing tried to shrink in her chin as she asked, feigning calmness.
Alva simply stared at her and didn’t reply to her question. He reached out with his other hand and covered the purple birthmark on Bai Qingqing’s left face.
Bai Qingqing’s heart rate escalated. She turned her head and attempted to dodge from it, but he cupped his hands around her head again.
“I suddenly realized that your facial features aren’t too bad-looking.”
Alva said in astonishment, a weird glow in his eyes. “If those birthmarks weren’t there, you would probably be very pretty.”
It was just that these two birthmarks were too eye-catching, making it hard for others to notice her facial features. Even looking at this carefully was a little glaring for Alva.
Bai Qingqing heaved a huge sigh of relief, and her body relaxed as well. As she bent over, the edge of her top burst open.
Alva, who was prepared to retract his hand, abruptly froze. He widened his eyes in shock.
As Bai Qingqing lowered her head following Alva’s gaze, she thought to herself “F*ck!”. She hurriedly held her top together and retreated backward.
Only then did Alva snap out of his shock. When he raised his head, his face appeared a little flushed.
“Do all females from another species have an extra lump of meat like you?” There was disdain in his voice as usual; it was just that now, it sounded very deliberate.
Bai Qingqing’s face also turned red. She touched her puffed up tummy and said matter-of-factly, “Perhaps it’s because I’m a mammalian species, different from you oviparous beastmen1.”
However, since they all had breasts, that meant peacock females, too, had the ability to give birth to mammalian beastmen.
Wait a minute…
Bai Qingqing froze as she spoke.
Did she become bigger over this period due to her pregnancy?!
Ah ah ah ah!
Bai Qingqing felt like she was struck by lightning, and her face turned even redder now. That color was nearly as intense as those two purple birthmarks on her face. She reached out her hands and covered her mouth which had involuntarily opened.
Bai Qingqing heard Alva say this outside the door. Then, the grey ball called out twice, before there was no more commotion. She turned her head and saw that there was no one outside the door now.
Bai Qingqing spread out the animal skin on the ground and laid on it, unable to think straight for a long time.
“Hey! Your meat!”
The sudden voice startled Bai Qingqing. She sat up and saw that Alva had returned, and this time the grey ball had turned into a piece of meat.
“Thanks.” Bai Qingqing didn’t stand on ceremony this time. Pregnant women got hungry especially fast. At the sight of food, she got hungry again.
She even kept away the flint that Muir brought; there was a source of fire now.
Bai Qingqing carried her luggage and walked out, preparing to roast the meat.
“You’re going to roast meat now?” asked Alva.
He followed closely behind Bai Qingqing. “Bella likes the meat you roasted. Teach me.”
Bai Qingqing, who was a little afraid of being followed by males, relaxed upon hearing that Alva was doing this for Bella. She replied, “Okay. It’s very simple, actually.”
The two of them started a fire by the river. There were salt powder and garlic in Bai Qingqing’s luggage.
Using these two condiments, Bai Qingqing marinated the meat for a while, before putting it to roast on the fire.
As the familiar fragrance of the roast meat entered his senses, the delight in Alva’s eyes intensified. “It’s this smell.”
Bai Qingqing wrapped the roast meat with a tree leaf, before tearing out a hind thigh and handing it to him.
“Have you mastered it?”
Looking at the meat before him, Alva was dazed momentarily. “Is this for me?”
“Try it. I can’t finish it by myself anyway.” Bai Qingqing tore another thigh and started chomping on it herself.
Alva smiled as he received the roast meat from her, then said, catching her off-guard, “When we give food to someone of the opposite sex here, it means we like that person.”
