Chapter 1453: Hopeless Leopard Life
Parker, who was a hot topic for discussion, was feeling very irritated. He gave his pesky a.s.sistant the slip (G.o.d knew why males would be so weak and feebly, just like females), then ran back home as if escaping.
“Qingqing, I’m back!” Parker yelled out the moment he entered the courtyard, venting his irritation.
Two leopards immediately came running over, howling as a greeting.
“Over here! I’m in the attic!” Bai Qingqing’s voice rang out from the second floor.
Parker agilely climbed the tree and then entered the house from the roof.
Bai Qingqing was laying in the big bird nest between the tree fork, reading her textbook and revising her studies. When Parker came over, she put down the book and asked excitedly, “How was it? Are you able to get used to it? I saw you on the Internet.”
Parker lay by her side meekly, hugging his mate. His mood suddenly calmed down.
“It’s alright. I’m just not used to the males here,” said Parker as he fiddled with his fringe.
Only then did Bai Qingqing realize that Parker had changed his hairstyle. She let out a surprised “hmmm?” and sat up.
Parker sat up too, putting into practice what he had just learned and a.s.suming a pose. He raised his brows at her, giving off a hint of a seductive feeling.
Bai Qingqing’s heart palpitated, but they had been husband and wife for very long and the palpitation soon stopped. She then burst out laughing. “Who taught you this? This is so funny, hahahaha!”
Parker said, “Is there a need to teach this? I can learn it just by looking at pictures.”
Bai Qingqing grabbed her stomach and laughed for a while before stopping. She then took another look at him with a conflicted gaze.
Parker was sharp and noticed his mate’s conflict. He asked, “What’s the matter?”
“Cough, erm, go check out the mirror yourself.” Bai Qingqing tried to hold back her laughter, her fingers clutching the nest. She didn’t dare to look at Parker for fear that she’d burst out laughing.
Back in the beastmen world, Parker had some of his hair cut off by accident and he ended up turning into a bald leopard. Back then, she thought that his hair would grow out very soon, and to take care of his pride, she hid it from him.
Right now, with there being full-length mirrors everywhere and Parker’s occupation requiring him to sport different hairstyles, it was impossible to hide it from him. Therefore, Bai Qingqing reminded him.
Parker felt baffled. “I did check out the mirror before. Is there any problem?”
“Go and take a look at yourself.” She decided not to go for fear that his pride might be hurt.
Bai Qingqing then added, “Check yourself in the mirror after you turn into a leopard.”
Parker thought of something and became unsettled. He immediately jumped out of the nest and dashed out.
“Howl—” Several seconds later, a leopard’s agonizing howl erupted in the villa.
This voice gave the two leopards dozing off in the courtyard a scare and they instantly jumped up, looking around nervously.
There was a full-length mirror on the wardrobe in Parker’s room. Right now, it showed the reflection of a leopard with an exquisitely bald head. The fur around his neck looked like it had been shaved off, causing it to look like a matchstick. The tuft of fur left on the top of his head looked like a blooming flower and drooped down without any fur to support it below.
Parker finally understood why his mate was laughing so strangely, and finally understood why other people would take a few more looks at him back in the beastmen world. Receiving praise from his mate when he was in his human form, he thought that he looked amazing after getting a haircut!
At the thought of how he had hung around Qingqing for a few months with a similar appearance, the leopard’s expression reflected in the mirror instantly turned into a “heaven brings doom upon me” expression. He stiffened and fell to the ground.
Hopeless! Leopard! Life!
