Chapter 69: Mated with Cortis
Moore used his claws to pick up three stones that were each taller than a human. When he returned, he placed the stones around Bai Qingqing, then placed branches thick with leaves on top. Just like that, he created a simple shelter.
He then used leaves to collect some water, which he fed to Bai Qingqing.
Some color returned to Bai Qingqing’s face. She used her arms to support herself as she sat up with much difficulty and asked, “Moore, do you have any news on Parker? He’s a leopard.”
Before Moore could respond, the roar of a leopard came from behind them.
Parker charged into the shelter and tackled Bai Qingqing to the ground. He then furiously licked her face.
“Ah!” Bai Qingqing scrunched up her face such that it looked like a dumpling. She covered her chest with her arms and shouted, “That hurts.”
Parker then recalled that licking Bai Qingqing with his tongue caused her skin to turn red and resisted the urge to do so. He lay on top of her as he transformed back into a human. “I can finally hug you. I missed you so much.”
Parker brought his head to Bai Qingqing’s face and lovingly rubbed against it.
Moore sensibly transformed into an eagle and stood on the edge of the cliff with his back turned to them as he looked down in embarra.s.sment.
Bai Qingqing nudged Parker. “Quickly get up. You being on top of me is painful.”
Parker obediently got up, carrying Bai Qingqing with him. He then placed her on his lap.
“How did you find us?” Bai Qingqing asked curiously.
“I followed the horde of giant beasts. They were at the bottom of the cliff, so I figured you would be at the top.” Parker affectionately wrapped his arms around Bai Qingqing as if he had missed her. He then took a huge whiff of her body’s natural scent. “Did that snake take advantage of you? Let me see.”
Parker then let go of Bai Qingqing and nervously scanned her body with his eyes. He was initially happy, but when his eyes landed on the snake tattoo on her ankle, his face stiffened.
Bai Qingqing felt sad when she thought about Cortis. She covered her left breast with her hand and didn’t say a word.
She couldn’t tell Parker that Cortis had bitten her chest. He would definitely rip off her clothes to check.
Parker hugged Bai Qingqing tightly and whined childishly. “I want to be your male too!”
“What? What ‘too’?” Bai Qingqing brought a hand to her forehead. “Can we talk about this dating stuff after we get back to the village?”
Parker pointed at Bai Qingqing’s foot, his golden eyes turning red. “You have his tattoo on your body! I want to leave my tattoo on your body too!”
Bai Qingqing followed Parker’s finger and looked down at her foot. She was shocked.
Since when did she get a tattoo? And why did it look so much like Cortis?
“This is a mate’s animal tattoo?” Bai Qingqing guessed.
“Yes.” Parker found it odd that Bai Qingqing would ask such a basic question, but he still gave her an affirmative answer. He grabbed her hand and asked, “Can we copulate once your body’s in a better condition? I want to become your male.”
Color further drained from Bai Qingqing’s face.
That meant that she and Cortis… had already mated? She was already a married woman?
Oh my G.o.d! I’m only sixteen. Mom and Dad will kill me if they find out.
“Can we?” Parker continued to press her.
“No!” Bai Qingqing screamed, her head shaking wildly like a drum-shaped rattle. “I don’t want to!”
A look of panic washed over Parker’s face. “Why?”
Bai Qingqing tightly covered her chest with her arms and looked at Parker with fear in her eyes. “It hurts. I don’t want anyone.”
So, in this world, mating involved the male biting the female’s chest. At this moment, Bai Qingqing felt a sense of respect towards the females of this world. They each had so many males. They were so brave.
Parker’s panicked expression was replaced with a relaxed one. So that was what she meant. He thought she didn’t like him.
