Chapter 3: I Saved You, so You’re My Female!

There were too many dangers in the forest. So, in the beastman world, there was an unspoken rule to reward males who rescued lone females in the forest: if a male saved a female, he could ask to be her mate, and the female would have no right to reject him.

Of course, if the female was extremely against it, the male wouldn’t force her for the sake of his own happiness.

After all, a female could mate with multiple males, whereas a male could only mate with one female, as males could only mate once in their entire lives. If males were abandoned by their female mates, they could only spend the rest of their lives alone. This mostly happened when a male agreed to be someone else’s lover when they were younger, and it was extremely tragic.

When Bai Qingqing was trying to get information from Parker, he was trying to get information from her as well. Once she gave him an answer he was satisfied with, he rejoiced with excitement as he transformed back into a leopard and sprinted.

This was great! The female didn’t have a mate, so according to the rules, she belonged to him! Hahaha!

Bai Qingqing was dumbfounded as she watched Parker turn from a human into a leopard and sprint off.

Was this guy on drugs?

Also, was it really okay for that thing to be swinging around like that? Wasn’t he afraid of hitting it?

Bai Qingqing covered her flushed face with her hands. If she looked at it any longer, she was going to have stys on her eyes.

After letting out his emotions, Parker leaped towards Bai Qingqing, his body transforming into a human’s in mid-air. He then forcefully tackled her to the ground.

“Ah! What are you doing? That was so painful.” If not for the smile on Parker’s face, Bai Qingqing would’ve thought that he was going to eat her when he tackled her to the ground. She was so frightened that her heart stopped beating for a moment.

Bai Qingqing’s beautiful eyebrows furrowed together as she pushed the unbelievably heavy man away. The law of conservation of matter held true, just as she expected. He was such a huge leopard—he had to be heavy even after turning into a human. She felt as if there was a mountain pressing her down on the ground.

Parker raised a golden eyebrow before saying, “I’m taking you back to the village.”

“Okay.” Bai Qingqing was stuck underneath Parker. Although she was nervous and afraid, she still had a calm expression on her face.

She would take things as they come. She couldn’t live like a savage all by herself, after all. She’d have to integrate herself into their beastman world at some point.

The dark pupils in Parker’s golden eyes were clearly constricting and dilating as he pressed the female below him down on the ground. He said in a strong voice, “Now, let’s make this clear. Females are very precious, so they’re allowed to mate with multiple males. But my mate can only mate with me. Do you understand?”

Bai Qingqing’s mind went blank for a moment before she came to her senses. “Female” sounded so awkward, and since when did she become his?

“Since when did I say I’d be your mate?” Bai Qingqing was angry and finally demonstrated a shred of courage.

A feral and unrestrained smile spread across Parker’s young face. “I found you, so you’re my female!”

Bai Qingqing was speechless.

She continued to argue with Parker, but fear set in after she looked at the gloomy forest around her. She didn’t dare to go overboard and kept quiet once she was no longer able to rebut his words.

Parker transformed back into his animal form and was full of joy as he carried the female he’d found on his back and ran back to his tribe’s village…

The leopard village was located between two mountain peaks. It was known as the Camel Hump Valley due to the mountain peaks resembling camel humps. With the City of Beastmen south of the area and a misty forest north of the area, the village was a richly endowed yet dangerous intermediate zone.

At the edge of the leopard village, there was a clear lake the size of a golf course. Half of it was shrouded by the woods and half of it was exposed to the sun. The water rippled in the wind and glittered in the sunlight, and the air was filled with the fresh and clean smell of water.

Parker held a dead wolf between his jaws and carried Bai Qingqing, whose face was numb from the b.u.mpy ride, on his back. He gradually slowed down as he reached the lake.
