Chapter 11: The Leopard Grabbed My Chest
After he was done eating, Parker went into the mountains to beat up a tiger, then sent it to Harvey as payment for the medical treatment and medicinal herbs. When he returned, he saw his female obediently sitting in the house, which instantly relieved him of all his fatigue.
“Female, I’m home!” Parker purposedly said in a loud voice. When he saw Bai Qingqing look up at the sound of his voice, he suddenly felt a sense of satisfaction that came with having a family of his own.
“Oh.” Bai Qingqing responded softly, then continued taking stock of the things in her backpack. She had brought some daily necessities with her as she had prepared to stay the night at the foot of the mountain with her friends prior to transmigrating. They were very useful now.
She had toothbrushes, some toothpaste, a wooden comb, a square-shaped towel to wash her face with, a clean set of underwear, a key holder, and various odds and ends.
“Female, what are you doing?” Parker crouched down beside Bai Qingqing. He then curiously held up a toothbrush and even sniffed it.
Bai Qingqing noticed Parker’s actions out of the corner of her eye and immediately s.n.a.t.c.hed back her toothbrush. “I already said to call me Bai Qingqing. Don’t call me ‘female’. Just call me Qingqing.”
“Qingqing…” Parker carefully ruminated over those two words and then chuckled. “I think ‘Baibai’ suits you more. You’re even fairer than the females of the three main species in the City of Beastmen. But I like the name ‘Qingqing’ too, Qingqing.”
Bai Qingqing’s words caught in her throat as she looked at the sweat on Parker’s face. Knowing that he beat up a tiger for her, she felt grateful and decided not to bicker with him.
“What’s the City of Beastmen?” Bai Qingqing asked casually.
Parker’s expression became blank and the joy faded from his face. “The City of Beastmen is the largest beastman settlement in our area.”
Bai Qingqing glanced at Parker. Did this guy have any painful memories about the City of Beastmen? With this guess in mind, Bai Qingqing didn’t ask further.
From the animal skin he’d stored, Parker picked out a thin and soft piece of cowhide and pa.s.sed it to Bai Qingqing, saying, “Here, you can sew clothes with this. Your clothes are too strange. They’re probably meant for attracting the attention of males. You’re my female now, so you can’t wear weird-looking clothes.”
The corners of Bai Qingqing’s mouth twitched as she took the cowhide. “I don’t know… how to sew clothes.”
“You’re so stupid.” Although Parker said that, he was neither angry nor surprised as he’d already deduced that Qingqing was pampered growing up. “I’ll sew them for you.”
Bai Qingqing was surprised. “You know how to sew clothes?”
“Of course!” Parker raised his chin. “Get up. I’ll take your measurements.”
“Okay.” Bai Qingqing immediately stood up and spread out her arms to let Parker take her chest measurements.
Parker held the cowhide as his eyes landed on Bai Qingqing’s full chest. Before taking her measurements, he used his hands to squeeze it.
“Ah!” Bai Qingqing automatically stepped back and wrapped her arms around her chest. She glared at Parker angrily. “What are you doing?”
Parker was shocked by Bai Qingqing’s violent reaction. With an indifferent look on his face, as if it was natural for him to do that, he said, “You’re my female. What’s wrong with me squeezing your chest?”
“What’s a hooligan? I’m a leopard,” Parker replied in a baffled manner. He walked closer to Bai Qingqing as he continued, “Quickly let me take your measurements.”
Bai Qingqing continued to step backward with her arms still wrapped around her chest. “Go away! I… I don’t want to have clothes made for me anymore.”
Seeing Bai Qingqing all tensed up, Parker knew that he’d scared her and immediately softened his voice. “Okay, okay. I won’t squeeze your chest anymore.”
Bai Qingqing remained where she was and stared at Parker with slightly downturned eyes. Despite exuding innocence, she looked as wary as a small beast. Feeling like his heart was about to melt, Parker reached out and pinched her face. “So timid. I meant it when I said I won’t squeeze you.”
