Chapter 781: Pitiful Parker
“When An’an was only seven days old, it didn’t have much influence on her either, let alone the fact that I’m already an adult. It’d be even less of a problem.”
Bai Qingqing’s words made a lot of sense and Winston hesitated, throwing a glance at Curtis.
In the end, Curtis said calmly, “If we don’t let her have her fill of fun, she won’t give up.”
“Hehe…” Bai Qingqing stuck out her tongue. “Then, it’s agreed. I’ll sleep upstairs tonight.”
Winston let out another sigh, not objecting any further.
Parker had picked a large batch of tender leaves, using a thin vine to tie them into a bundle. He picked them up with his mouth and returned to the village, with the three leopard cubs following behind him.
He could sense that everyone’s gazes were on him, and he straightened his back even more, walking with a majestic stride.
Parker draped the animal skin skirt on his back like a cape, and his bare neck was connected on top. Those who didn’t know it would think that he was also bare on his back.
The tuft of golden hair on the top of his head was messed up by the cold wind, looking like a wilting weed in the autumn.
“Howl—” [Does Daddy look especially impressive?]
Parker had the thin vines hooked to his teeth and asked in a soft and m.u.f.fled voice to the leopard cubs behind him.
“Howl howl howl—” The leopard cubs kept on crying out and suddenly accelerated, das.h.i.+ng toward the stone castle.
They better return quickly. It was too embarra.s.sing to walk together with their daddy. They saw a few tiger cubs’ mocking expressions.
“Howl—” These children were always so disobedient.
Parker cursed softly, but these couldn’t affect his good mood. Putting on the iron claws, he felt like making a trip to the iron-smelting room as well.
When Bai Qingqing heard the leopard cubs’ voices, she walked out of the bedroom.
“Where’s your daddy?” Bai Qingqing asked.
“Howl! Howl howl!”
The leopard cubs turned back to take a look, the meaning of their cries obvious. Bai Qingqing’s heart immediately sank, and she rushed out anxiously.
The moment she went out, Bai Qingqing saw Parker loitering around outside, emitting a “smug” vibe.
“Pffft!” Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but laugh
Parker saw her and greeted her from afar.
Bai Qingqing quickly said, “Come back quickly!”
Parker immediately accelerated and started running, the leaves he was holding in his mouth swinging to and fro. The sound of the wind caused him to miss out on the whisperings from the females behind him.
“That’s the male who is the first to forge an iron tool?”
A wolf tribe female who stayed nearby asked her tiger tribe mate.
As they weren’t of the same tribe, the tiger changed into his human form and replied, “En. I heard that his hair was sc.r.a.ped off when he scratched an itch while wearing the iron claws. I have no idea how much of it he lost. He must be lacking in a lot of hair on his back as well.”
This male eventually concluded, “Iron tools are really sharp!”
The female nodded in agreement.
The male’s eyes had a yearning in them. He looked at the deformed metal piece by his side. “I wonder when I’ll be able to forge iron claws. I’ll have to be more careful when the time comes.”
“En, you must not become like him. Otherwise, I won’t want you anymore!” the female said jokingly.
The tiger beastman was given a fright and swore in his heart,
I must be careful to not turn out like that leopard!
That leopard must have been despised by his own female. After he took a walk outside, he was called back home by his mate, who had felt embarra.s.sed.
Parker had no idea how many pitiful gazes were thrown at him. He ran over to Bai Qingqing’s side and nudged at her waist with his head.
Bai Qingqing smiled and said, “Come in quickly!”
This foolish leopard. Didn’t he realize that everyone was looking at him?
