Chapter 813: Armor (1)
Bai Qingqing sat up and looked toward Curtis, her gaze seemed to be saying: He’s fooling around, but why are you doing the same?
“Ssss—” Curtis flicked out his tongue helplessly.
Parker had no idea how ridiculous his hairstyle was when he was in his leopard form. He said confidently, “With this, the difference between me and those of my tribe will be even more distinct.”
Bai Qingqing was so angry that she grabbed his hair and shook it, saying resentfully, “You fool!”
She had taken so much effort to deceive him, and now that things were going to end soon, she didn’t expect… that the efforts would all go down the drain!
Parker was baffled.
Bai Qingqing sighed and got up, kicking at Parker’s b.u.t.t. She then said in a commanding tone, “When you’re in the village in the future, you’re forbidden from turning into a leopard and running around!”
“Why?” Parker continued to feel baffled.
Bai Qingqing bellowed angrily. “Because it’ll be inconvenient when you change into your human form and have no clothes to wear!”
Parker was elated and immediately put on an abiding att.i.tude. “Alright, I won’t change into my beast form in the village in the future.”
There were too many females in the village now, and it was true that it was inconvenient when he changed his form in the village. Females would surely see him.
He just didn’t expect that Qingqing would also secretly mind this.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t be bothered to look at him and turned to look at An’an.
She didn’t expect that An’an had been awake all this while. Her eyes were opened wide, and she was so quiet as if she had fallen asleep.
“Why didn’t you make a sound?”
Bai Qingqing scratched An’an’s chin and asked softly.
An’an’s eyes turned slowly before she showed a reaction and cried out a few sounds at her.
Bai Qingqing immediately carried her and patted her back worriedly.
An’an must not have recovered from the poison episode from last night. Although the scorpion poison would get weaker after each episode, An’an was still so young, and her heart wasn’t strong enough. Bai Qingqing was worried that she’d get mental illnesses.
“I hope that Winston can come back earlier.” Bai Qingqing prayed.
In the evening, the temperature fell and the rain came as well.
From this day onward, there’d be males from other tribes joining the village once in a while, having duels to display themselves.
Such rare and lively scenes became the norm in the village.
Last year, the number of females in the village had surged crazily, and this resulted in the number of males increasing in many folds this year.
“Clank! Clank! Clank!”
The knocking sounds coming from the iron-smelting room kept on ringing out incessantly.
Bai Qingqing carried An’an and walked to the iron-smelting room’s door. She immediately felt a heatwave gus.h.i.+ng at her face. There was also the scent of sweat.
Parker was focused on hitting a piece of iron that was red from all the burning. His bare chest was covered in sweat, and his tensed muscles reflected a firm glow.
Bai Qingqing didn’t make a sound, but Parker seemed to have sensed something and looked up. A warm expression immediately appeared on his face.
“Why have you come? Leave quickly. It’s hot here.”
“I came to take a look at your armor.” Bai Qingqing cradled An’an, then took a look inside curiously.
There was a basic form of armor next to Parker.
Parker smiled and put the iron piece into cold water.
“Sizzle—” Smoke rose from the water. This part was done.
Parker was worried that Bai Qingqing would be scalded, so he carried his stuff and ran out from the iron-smelting room.
The two of them ran over to the shade of a tree. The temperature outside was very high, so the tree’s shade felt exceptionally cooling in comparison.
This was especially when a cooling wind blew onto their skin that was covered in sweat, bringing away the scorching temperature. It was a form of enjoyment.
“It’s going to be done soon.”
Parker grinned. After saying that, he lowered his head and skillfully pieced the armor together.
