Chapter 746: Necklace
Parker’s countenance changed greatly. He cast a furious glance at Winston, before briskly walking to the nest and picking up a blanket to drape over Bai Qingqing.
“Did you catch a cold outside?” Parker wrapped her firmly with the blanket, before carrying the bundled-up her to the nest.
“You said if one falls ill during confinement, she will be plagued with the ailment forever. What should we do?” Parker was really panicking. He said anxiously, “This won’t do. I’ll go add more firewood, then get Harvey to come over.”
Bai Qingqing quickly grabbed hold of him. “I didn’t catch a cold. The iron-smelting room was extremely hot. I merely can’t breathe properly.”
Parker cast her a dubious look and asked worriedly, “You won’t suffer lingering effects of a chronic disease, will you?”
Bai Qingqing, who didn’t feel anything amiss, waved a hand dismissively. “I’m fine, I’ll be okay after some rest.”
“You’re not to go to the iron-smelting room in the future,” ordered Parker.
Since she had seen everything she wished to see, Bai Qingqing naturally didn’t mind obliging.
Winston added more firewood to the furnace, then returned to the iron-smelting room to continue working.
After feeding An’an, Bai Qingqing left her in Parker’s care, then retrieved a strand of Curtis’s bright red long hair from the wooden case.
“You’re not to make clothes.” Seeing what she was doing, Parker said to her.
However, Bai Qingqing didn’t pick up a large piece of animal skin. Instead, she simply picked up a basic sewing kit and returned to the nest to reach under the pillow for the seven transparent crystals obtained yesterday.
“I merely wish to string these rocks together,” explained Bai Qingqing.
Parker no longer objected.
Curtis’s hair was tough as iron. Using that strand of hair, Bai Qingqing tied it around each rock with a dead knot, stringing them together like that.
Following that, she attached an animal skin rope to it, forming a necklace.
The red hair strand was tied around the transparent crystals, looking like blood, adding a uniquely gorgeous aesthetic to the necklace. Combined with the animal skin rope, it exuded a wild vibe amidst the majestically glamorous style.
Bai Qingqing immediately wore it around her neck and showed it to Parker.
“Look, what do you think of this?”
Of course, Parker quickly nodded. “Looks great.”
Bai Qingqing stroked her neck. “But it’s so heavy.”
The necklace around her neck weighed at least 250 grams. If she had known it, she would have just strung one rock.
But since it was already made, Bai Qingqing couldn’t bear to tear it apart, so she simply wore it like that.
The leopard cubs’ voices rang over. Bai Qingqing knew that they were calling her “Mommy”.
The room door was opened, and the three cubs spilled in from outside, bringing with them a gust of chilly air. They shook their bodies, and a layer of snow landed upon the stone floor.
“Where did you go to have fun this time?” Bai Qingqing asked casually.
The cubs responded.
Parker translated for them. “They were playing in the backyard. They said they were looking for Curtis.”
Bai Qingqing couldn’t help bursting into laughter. “You three sure have nothing better to do, huh.”
The cubs whimpered. Seeing the new accessory on their mommy, they instantly went up to clutch at it.
Bai Qingqing quickly removed it and was about to hand it over to them, when she suddenly got playful. She couldn’t help but put it on Third’s neck.
Third lowered his head and clutched at the pendant excitedly.
Of course, Eldest and Second couldn’t take it lying down, so they immediately went to s.n.a.t.c.h it from their younger brother.
The three cubs, now the size of mutts, started biting at each other, causing the necklace to toss between the three heads.
The necklace was sent flying and ended up falling next to Parker.
The cubs trembled in unison. They turned their heads and stared at the necklace, then dug their back claws into the floor.
They bolted over like an arrow, giving off a majestic vibe that resembled their father’s.
