Chapter 679: Stay-At-Home Dad Winston
As long as Winston wasn’t facing Bai Qingqing, he could do everything perfectly.
The leopard cubs were very satisfied during dinner in the evening but weren’t too stuffed. Thereafter, Winston helped them to clean their feet and mouths, then carried them back one by one.
In the time Winston was taking care of the leopard cubs, Bai Qingqing took the chance to wash up. She felt bad about troubling Winston for everything. After she was done, she poured the bathwater out of the tree hole cup by cup.
When Winston came up, Bai Qingqing was scooping a cup of water and was about to stand up.
When pregnant, one’s waist would tire especially easily. She stood and squatted for ten to twenty times, and her waist was so tired that she couldn’t stand up anymore. She placed her hands on her knees and panted.
Winston quickly went over to support her, taking away the cup from her.
“What are you doing?” He looked at her countenance anxiously, placing the cup by the tree hole’s entrance. He carried her up horizontally and walked over to the nest.
Winston placed Bai Qingqing steadily on the bed. Seeing that she was fine, he felt a little more at ease and said, “Are you thirsty? I’ll go scoop water for you later.”
Bai Qingqing was caught between laughter and tears. Winston was treating her like a female beastman. The females here could drink water from the puddles left from the rain.
“I’m only pouring out the bathwater. Moreover, there’s a bucket of clear water there. Parker would fill it up in the morning,” Bai Qingqing said.
Winston immediately said, “I’ll go pour it away. You lay down and don’t move.”
The sky turned dark quickly in the heavy rainy season. The light rays in the tree hole were the first to turn dim, with only the luminous ball’s stubbornly lighting up the place.
Winston was the only mature male at home, so Bai Qingqing started to feel uneasy again.
“Children, come over to sleep.” Bai Qingqing covered herself with the blanket and called out to them softly.
The leopard cubs were exceptionally excited as it had been very long since they last slept with their mother. All of them jumped up onto the bed.
Bai Qingqing let them take Parker’s usual spot, turning her body and playing with them. The spot behind her suddenly sank, and she knew that Winston had come. Her breathing softened.
“Erm… The light isn’t off yet.” Bai Qingqing tensed up.
Winston immediately got up and put away the light. “Sleeping so early?”
The tree hole had turned completely dark, and Bai Qingqing was starting to regret it.
She only said something in passing to ease up the atmosphere when she saw Winston coming over to sleep. What was going to happen now that she had made the atmosphere worse?
Winston lay down next to her, the distance between them so narrow that it was only half a palm wide. However, they didn’t touch each other at all.
Bai Qingqing felt warmth coming from behind her back, but she wasn’t touching anything. This allowed her to have the delusion of feeling a chill down her back.
“Howl—” Third recalled the memories of when they had milk in their younger days and suddenly bumped against Bai Qingqing’s chest.
“Ahh!” Bai Qingqing let out a surprised cry, and her body moved backward. She instantly landed in a fiery embrace.
Both Bai Qingqing and Winston stiffened up at the same time.
Third was still going on. Eldest and Second also remembered it, and the three of them started fighting.
Without their stern daddy around and Winston indulging them, they could be said to be turning the world upside down.
Their bodies weren’t as light as when they were younger, and just a step from them was hard for Bai Qingqing. The three leopard cubs had twelve legs, and they stomped on her body like the Shadowless Kick.
Bai Qingqing was in pain as she shielded her stomach with one hand while trying to fend them off under the blanket. Thankfully, they weren’t too playful and knew not to touch their mommy’s stomach.
Winston relaxed his muscles and placed one arm at her waist as a shield, slowly embracing her.
“What are they doing?”
