Chapter 15: Looking Ugly
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Bai Qingqing only realized that Parker was naked when she pushed him away. Her face flushed as she immediately turned away and got up from the grass nest. All things aside, although the nest seemed coarse, it was pretty comfortable to sleep in.
Bai Qingqing stood up and realized that her ankle was no longer swollen. There wasn’t even any discomfort.
After putting on his skirt, Parker fetched water from the river for her to bathe in and scooped up some mud for her.
Without waiting for him to walk over, Bai Qingqing picked up her backpack, covered her face, and asked him, “You want me to be uglier, right? I have an idea on how to do that, and it doesn’t involve the use of mud.”
“What idea do you have?”
Seeing that Parker had softened his attitude towards her, she calmly opened her backpack and took out a few makeup products. She’d secretly use them when going out to play—she was already sixteen, after all.
She didn’t have a lot of makeup—just one pink lip balm, an eyebrow pencil, and liquid eyeliner. Up until yesterday, she hadn’t thought too much of them since they weren’t of much use. Now, they came in very handy.
Bai Qingqing looked at the makeup products and thought for a moment. Then, she picked up the liquid eyeliner and drew small black dots on her face.
Before long, half her face was covered in “freckles”.
A smile slowly spread across Parker’s face as he crouched down in front of Bai Qingqing and said, “Yes, this is good. You look hideous now. I’m sure no one will like you.”
Bai Qingqing rolled her eyes at Parker as she continued to dot her face.
To save liquid eyeliner, Bai Qingqing drew about a hundred dots on her cheeks and nose bridge. She left her forehead and chin bare, but the effect was already great. The dark spots buried her stunning features such that only her eyes looked relatively attractive.
Parker couldn’t be happier with the result. He grabbed Bai Qingqing’s hand and said to her, “Let’s go. I’ll show you around the village. You can get to know and play with the females in the tribe as well. They pick edible wild herbs and fruits in the village every day.”
Somewhat interested, Bai Qingqing followed Parker out of the house.
The rest of the beastmen in the tribe were already outside as both of them had woken up very late. After observing closely for a while, Bai Qingqing realized that there were far more males than females in the tribe. For every five males they came across, she only saw one female.
Bai Qingqing noticed a few females gathered together from afar. She shook off Parker’s hand and said, “I’m going to find them. Don’t worry about me.”
Bai Qingqing then walked towards the females without waiting for Parker to respond. Being totally unfamiliar with the village and the beastmen, she didn’t dare to ask the males for help. Hence, she could only try to build rapport with the females.
Parker immediately followed behind Bai Qingqing. How could he bear to leave her alone?
When Bai Qingqing walked over to the group of females, a young female looked in her direction. “Are you the female that Parker brought back?”
“Uh… yes. My name’s Bai Qingqing. What’s yours?” Bai Qingqing smiled and asked.
It was clear that life in the leopard village was simple, and no one had been hostile to Bai Qingqing since her arrival. This female answered her politely, “My name’s Eve.”
Eve wasn’t particularly good-looking, but she had a soft gaze and a calm aura, giving her an unexplainable sense of beauty. She was the prettiest female in the village that Bai Qingqing had come across.
Actually, all the females were average-looking by modern standards. They were ugly, sure, but not so ugly that they would be picked on. She just couldn’t stand the sight of them being worshiped by handsome and majestic men.
Just imagine pretty boys like Li Yifeng and Lu Han lovingly surrounding Sister Feng1.
Bai Qingqing only realized then that the females had palm-sized animal tattoos on their bodies. She didn’t get the chance to look at them closely the day before. They were so lifelike that it was hard to imagine how such a primitive tribe could have such excellent skills. Nearly all the tattoos were of leopards, although some females had tigers or bears tattooed on their bodies as well. They all seemed to be related to the males around them.
