Chapter 814: Armor (2)
“They’re like this,” Parker said, not minding it. He took a look at Bai Qingqing adoringly, then lowered his head to a.s.semble his armor together.
Bai Qingqing carried An’an with one hand and put out her other hand, which had a small and exquisite-looking gourd-shaped porcelain bottle hanging on it, in front of Parker.
“Have a sip of water first.”
Parker took a look at her, then took the porcelain bottle from her, raising his head to drink.
Bai Qingqing then took out the towel she had cut out from her own clothes to wipe his sweat. Looking at Parker’s firm and black skin, she said, her heart aching for him, “You’re all tanned now.”
The armor was a.s.sembled together very quickly. Just one iron claw alone weighed over five kilograms. Bai Qingqing wouldn’t be able to lift this entire set of armor.
Parker displayed it to her, then removed his animal skin skirt, turned into his leopard form, and put on the armor.
The armor’s iron pieces covered the leopard’s entire body. His head, neck, back, side of his waist… All the places where he was easily attacked were all protected.
Even some parts of his face were also covered by iron pieces, leaving only his mouth and two eyes.
Parker used his claws to lock on the mechanism at his stomach area, then put on the iron claws. The entire leopard was fully equipped.
Even that horrible hairstyle was covered up by the armor, looking dignified and austere.
“Howl?” [How is it?]
Parker walked over to stand under the sunlight, his silver armor looking exceptionally dazzling under the strong light’s illumination.
Bai Qingqing’s eyes reflected Parker, who seemed to be emitting light. She was so astonished that she was rendered speechless, only quickly nodding after a few seconds pa.s.sed.
“Cool!” Bai Qingqing exclaimed.
Parker swung his tail excitedly. Even his tail was covered in a layer of iron. It was extremely agile when he swung it.
The armor on the tail wasn’t for him to look cool. It also had an important use.
The effect of his tail was to maintain balance. Now that Parker’s body had become heavier, there was a need to increase the weight of his tail as well. If the balance wasn’t good enough, he’d still have to make adjustments later on.
Even An’an blinked as she looked at Parker.
She usually often gestured for Parker to carry her, but after seeing Parker in this manner, her clear and bright eyes seemed to be stunned.
She then looked around, as if searching for where Parker was, unable to recognize him.
Both Bai Qingqing and the armored leopard laughed.
“Howl howl howl—”
Hearing Parker’s cries that sounded like a mad dog that had contracted rabies, Bai Qingqing laughed even harder.
An’an looked at her mommy, feeling confused, then looked at the iron leopard. She then grinned and started laughing as well. She had grown two small baby front teeth and looked very cute.
They had no idea what she was laughing about.
After laughing for a while, Bai Qingqing asked, “Is it convenient when you have it on? Is it hard to move in?”
Parker let out a snuff and looked up at the trees in the surroundings.
As Parker let out a challenging cry, three leopards sneakily revealed their heads. They exchanged a few glances and then jumped down.
They were Parker’s brothers and were initially following Bai Qingqing when they chanced upon Parker’s completed armor. Their eyes immediately lit up with excited flames.
Their tacit understanding as brothers didn’t disappear. With just a few glances, the leopards managed to share their thoughts, all of them taking on attacking poses.
What were they doing? Were they going to fight?
Bai Qingqing carried An’an and backed off to the side of the tree trunk. The battle under the sun immediately took place, and the sound of metal clas.h.i.+ng instantly rang out.
Bai Qingqing guessed who the three leopards were. Parker was a three-striped beastman while they were all two-striped beastmen. Moreover, it hadn’t been long since they leveled up.
