Chapter 1383: Exposed
Bai Qingqing rolled her eyes and said, “It’s not
Parker let out an astonished gasp, before feigning a relaxed expression. “Thankfully, that leopard is me. Otherwise, you’d surely be seduced by him.”
Bai Qingqing: “…”
I’ve seen narcissistic people before, but never someone that narcissistic. Much less such a narcissistic leopard.
When Parker shook, his tail shook out and turned into a ball in his elastic track pants, and was terribly squeezy. When he shook his tail, it was like there was a snake in his pants.
After squeezing out his tail, Bai Qingqing grabbed it and pulled him to the sofa.
“Sit properly and watch the news,” Bai Qingqing said sternly, then turned to look at the television.
Parker, too, gazed at the television curiously and even praised, “It’s more stable than the images conjured up by the ape king.”
“I actually think that the ape king’s images have a better 3D effect,” Bai Qingqing replied casually. After saying that, she felt that her att.i.tude was too soft, so she instantly straightened her face. “Eh… no. Watch the TV properly.”
“Ooh~” Parker laid on the sofa on his belly and fidgeted with the bag of crystals, causing the contents to make clunking sounds.
After the video finished playing, when it replayed, the news anchor’s voice was added. “According to the police, this leopard could have escaped from the zoo. The police have already contacted the zoo so as to capture the leopard as quickly as possible. We remind you once again to be careful when you go out, lest you get injured.”
This news segment ended just like that. Bai Qingqing glanced at Parker, and, feeling that he must have gotten into more trouble, whipped out her phone and started checking.
Unexpectedly, Parker occupied all the headlines in the trending search. Only the man of the hour, Muir, was comparable to him.
There were tags such as:
#LeopardTurnedIntoSpiritualBeingAndEnteredBoutiqueToStealClothes, #LeopardSprintedInTheStreetsAndBattledWitsAndStrengthWithPolice, #IBrushedPastALeopard.
Another one was actually of him in human form. #GorgeousManSpottedOnRooftop
Especially this last one, Parker’s face was captured clearly. The photography technique was superb, with Parker looking extremely handsome even though the photo was secretly taken. This photo had garnered countless ‘likes’.
Bai Qingqing patted Parker’s face with her phone. “Take a look yourself.”
Hence, Parker started looking for himself on the phone. In some of the videos, Parker could be clearly seen, whereas in others he merely flashed past.
“Eh? Looks like I’m inside all of them,” commented Parker.
“Yeah, you’re really famous now.” As she spoke, Bai Qingqing looked at his clothes and said speechlessly, “These are the clothes you stole, right?”
Caught red-handed by his mate, Parker finally felt embarra.s.sed and murmured, “At the time I didn’t know that I could simply exchange for it using paper. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have resorted to stealing it.”
“Exchange with what paper? You haven’t explained yourself properly.” Recalling Parker’s grilled cuttlefish, Bai Qingqing interrogated.
“The paper picked up from the ground.” As Parker spoke, he saw the ball of paper Bai Qingqing tossed in the trash bin, and his eyes lit up. He pointed at the trash bin and said, “That sort of white paper.”
Bai Qingqing was dumbfounded.
She covered her face and couldn’t bear to look at him. She even regretted asking him so clearly.
This was too damaging to his image! Parker, what happened to your wits? Also, same for you, Curtis. Why did they, who were the cleverest, become so comical in the modern world?
Not wanting Parker to ruin his wonderful image in her heart, Bai Qingqing decided to stop asking him. She looked towards Winston. “What about you? Where did your clothes come from?”
Winston fell silent for a moment, before replying, “I saw someone robbing someone else. So, I robbed them back.”
He knew that Qingqing had a kind heart, and it had to do with the environment she lived in. He could also sense that there were restrictions even when it came to fighting in this world. So, he conveniently neglected to mention the fact that he had killed a human.
