Chapter 87: The Animal in Parker
Bai Qingqing suddenly detected Parker’s abnormality and asked him strangely, “What are you doing?”
Parker tossed his tail vigorously. “I smell other males. Roar!”
He transformed into a leopard and rolled around on the ground, then laid down and thrust his hind legs against the ground forcefully.
“Pff!” Bai Qingqing couldn’t resist sputtering with laughter. Parker was indeed a male leopard. His territorial sense was not at all inferior to the wild animals in the jungles.
“Why don’t you just mark your territory with urine?” Bai Qingqing joked.
“Roar?” The leopard’s eyes lit up at the suggestion, and it was clear from his expression that he was eager to try that.
Bai Qingqing read that perfectly. She retrieved a wooden comb from her bag and threw it at Parker. “If you want to pee, get out and do it!”
“Roar!” Parker’s face fell. Seemed like he had rejoiced too soon.
His scent would be more intense after p.i.s.sing in that place. But he knew from his mother that females didn’t like males doing so, for they loved cleanliness.
Something suddenly struck Bai Qingqing, causing her to raise her pitch. “Your wooden house in Camel Hump Valley, don’t tell me you p.i.s.sed inside?”
Parker immediately squeezed his tail and looked at Bai Qingqing sheepishly.
“What the h.e.l.l!” Bai Qingqing was so angry she thrust her bag at Parker. No wonder she kept feeling there was a smell in the house. At the time she had simply thought it was the bodily smell of animals. So it turned out Parker had p.i.s.sed in the house!
Parker didn’t dodge it and the bag smacked him right in the head. He kept shaking his tail, begging for mercy.
Dragging her weak body and getting to her feet, Bai Qingqing picked up the bag. “I don’t want to talk to you, continue rubbing away.”
Parker rubbed his scent all over the bedroom, then ran out and cut a bunch of long and thin gra.s.ses and laid them out in the sun outside the door. After working tirelessly for two days, the stone house finally resembled a home.
The two of them stayed here peacefully.
This time around, Bai Qingqing’s period was very light, but it had been seven days and it hadn’t yet ended—she was still bleeding on and off.
However, Bai Qingqing did feel like her strength had been restored. Also, the smell of the giant beast egg on her hair had become very faint now. After obtaining Parker’s permission, she washed her hair clean.
With nothing to do, Bai Qingqing prepared to find food herself.
“Parker, are there any bamboos nearby?” Bai Qingqing asked as she walked out of the house and squatted down next to Parker, who was lying belly-up on the ground, soaking up the sun.
Parker flipped around and transformed into a human, then propped his chin up with his hands and asked, gazing at Bai Qingqing, “Yes. What do you need it for?”
“Oi! We’re in the village.” Bai Qingqing berated him in a hushed tone as she quickly glanced around them.
There was quite a bit of distance between the houses, and there were also a few other beastmen suntanning themselves outside like Parker. No one was paying any attention to them.
Parker curled up his tail and shook it, bringing about a mild breeze. “There aren’t other females around. It’s so hot, no females will come out.”
Bai Qingqing also felt that the sun was scorching hot. She poked Parker’s firm shoulders and said, “Put on clothes and take me to find bamboo. I have use for them.”
“Okay.” Parker nimbly jumped up.
After transforming into a leopard, Parker ran out of the City of Beastmen with Bai Qingqing riding on his back.
The last time when they entered the city Bai Qingqing hadn’t noticed this—the City of Beastmen was actually surrounded by towering and seemingly indestructible walls tens of meters tall.
When they arrived at the bamboo grove, Bai Qingqing began selecting the bamboo.
Not bad at all. This bamboo grove was like the one Cortis and her went to the other time—the bamboos were thick and long, so in the future, she could make bamboo rice again. She could probably also use these bamboos to weave a fish basket.
“What do you need the bamboo for?” Parker asked behind her.
“There are plenty of uses for them.” Bai Qingqing retrieved the snake scale from her neck, squatted down, and began slicing the bamboo.
