Chapter 140: The Characteristic of a Dog

Bai Qingqing placed the skirt over Parker’s important area. Looking at the bruise on his firm abdomen, she had no idea where to start. She gently touched it testingly, then instantly looked up at his expression.
Parker’s face tensed for a bit, then, acting as if nothing had happened, he picked up the skirt and stuck out his legs to put it on.
Bai Qingqing turned her head and gently rubbed his tummy, not looking at him. “Does it hurt?”
Parker cheerfully replied, “It doesn’t hurt since you’re rubbing it.”
Bai Qingqing rolled her eyes and asked, “Who won the fight just now?”
It was unlike Bai Qingqing to care about the outcome of a fight. Parker was shocked to hear this question. With his heart in his mouth, he gazed at Bai Qingqing and said uneasily, “I will definitely defeat him.”
That meant he had lost.
“I believe in you.” Bai Qingqing hesitated a moment, before saying to him, “But you’d better not trifle with him for the time being.”
Bai Qingqing loved dogs and had even worked a part-time job at a pet shop for doggies, so she had a good understanding of dogs.
Different dogs had different personalities, but they all had one thing in common—that was, they bullied the weak and feared the strong. Especially in vicious dogs, this characteristic was all the more apparent.
If a dog that newly arrived at the shop was ferocious and you were unable to control it, it would continue to act fiercely towards you, and might even bite you. However, if you managed to subdue it completely from the start, not only would it become extremely tame, but it would also appear to be very fond of you.
Perhaps, more accurately speaking, they detested the weak and had a fondness for the strong. Of course, that was to people other than their own owners.
Wolves should be more or less similar to dogs. This was evident in Hugh’s attitude towards Cortis.
Upon hearing this, Parker’s face was expressionless, and his golden eyes were dim. There was a firm resolution in his eyes. He placed his hand over Bai Qingqing’s petite one on his tummy and held it tightly. He swore. “I will definitely defeat him!”
Perhaps Qingqing said that because she couldn’t bear to see him get injured, but he couldn’t tolerate being belittled by his female.
Bai Qingqing was shocked by Parker’s tone. She hurriedly said, “Don’t be rash.” She didn’t wish to see him get injured for her sake every two days or so.
“Don’t worry. I’m your mate. Even if he can defeat me, he dares not kill me.” Parker removed her hand and sat up. “I’ll go and build the shelter.”
“Wait. You’ll get well faster if your bruise is massaged. Hurry up and lie down.”
Seeing Bai Qingqing’s firm attitude, Parker had no choice but to lie down as he was told. It was only after his tummy was massaged until it grew hot that he could escape.
Today, the short-winged bird moved into its shelter.
Cortis had rushed to and fro these few days, so he only woke up after sleeping two nights and one day upon returning.
“Clang! Clang!” The rhythmic sounds of something striking against rock could be heard. Amidst the thundering rain, however, it didn’t appear noisy.
“Ssss—” A red and black snakehead peeked out, pressed against the ground. He flicked out his tongue and accurately sensed where the two of them were at.
Parker was hitting a rock, while Bai Qingqing was sewing a piece of animal skin.
Bai Qingqing had a feeling of being stared at. Her gaze shifted from the animal skin in her hands to her ankle, then suddenly looked towards the door.
Cortis’ head froze.
“You’ve awoken?” Bai Qingqing felt happy to see Cortis. But as she finished speaking, she recalled what happened that day, so she tried hard to hide the joy on her face.
Cortis slithered into the main room.
Bai Qingqing deliberately chose not to look at him. Facing Parker, she said, “Parker, it’s getting late. Let’s cook something to eat.”
“Okay,” Parker said. After hitting the rock for the last time, he set down his tools and wiped his sweat. “What would you like to eat?”
“Fish.” Bai Qingqing had a look of anticipation on her face.
Parker immediately realized that Qingqing was trying to let Cortis have a taste of the steamed fish. He glared at Cortis, before reluctantly walking out.
