Chapter 1005: Untitled
The furious Saint Zachary nearly lost his senses—he wanted to tear the snake beastman into shreds.
This wasn’t a falsehood; he had been maintaining a steady advantage in the battle, and the only reason he had not been able to emerge victoriously, was because of his fears of damaging this physical body.
Curtis’s body was the most suitable. Firstly, because stripeless beasts were rare and extremely difficult to find. Secondly, to have reached this level, he couldn’t possibly be too young and would definitely already have a mate. It wouldn’t do if that beastman wasn’t compatible with Bai Qingqing, either.
Moreover, Curtis’s natural-born talent was even above Saint Zachary’s, making it impossible for Saint Zachary not to be jealous. So long as he managed to obtain this body, he would definitely have more invincible capabilities in the future.
Saint Zachary forced himself to hold back the desire to kill and turned around to leave.
The buzzing sounds went on continuously, making such a din that it nearly drove one crazy. The beastmen hurried back home to check on their own spouses.
Thankfully, the scorpion tribe wasn’t too devoid of conscience, and before they received Saint Zachary’s massacre orders, they didn’t harm a single female.
The scorpion tribe retreated in its entirety, and Winston was kept busy taking care of the aftermath. Parker dashed into the stone castle right away, then sprinted out and asked with reddened eyes, “Where’s Qingqing!”
Alas, the snake was nowhere to be seen at the door. Something quickly occurred to Parker, whose eyes lit up as he ran towards the waterhole.
Bai Qingqing, who had her eyes shut, suddenly opened them as though she sensed something. She found herself looking into a pair of gentle snake eyes.
She revealed a smile and crawled out of the cave. “Has the scorpion tribe left?”
“Mm.” Curtis transformed into a human and cast a cold glance at Bluepool who was seated opposite Bai Qingqing and carrying An’an.
Bluepool’s tail fins instantly exploded, and he swiftly returned An’an—who was nibbling on the luminous pearl—back to Bai Qingqing, before diving into the water and started blowing a bubble.
“I came to fetch you home.” Curtis’s voice sounded very deep in the water. His voice was pure, to begin with, and it was just that his tone quality was a tad gentle and tended towards gender-neutralness. Transmitting through a different medium, one could then detect a visible change in his tone quality—pure and pleasant like the melody produced by a cello, and at the same time, resembling the sounds of a sea demon.
As the voice spat out, several bubbles emerged from his mouth and floated upwards.
Entranced, Bai Qingqing fell into a daze momentarily and forgot to move. Yet, her soul seemed to have flown towards Curtis to spin in circles around him.
Under Curtis’s perplexed, tilted-head gaze, Bai Qingqing snapped out of her reverie, and a blush crept onto her face.
After Bluepool was done blowing the bubble, he hurriedly pushed it into the cave. “Come in.”
With Curtis around, he would rather Bai Qingqing leave quickly. But as his gaze landed upon An’an who was engrossed in nibbling on his luminous pearl, a brief struggle flickered across his eyes.
Forget it, just lend it to her again and let her play with it.
Bai Qingqing squeezed into the bubble and then heard Bluepool say, “Return the luminous pearl to me after An’an falls asleep.”
Bai Qingqing glanced at the luminous pearl in An’an’s hands and said with a pursed-lip smile, “Wouldn’t your mate find it dirty with An’an nibbling on it this way?”
Only then did this occur to Bluepool. His body trembled, and when he turned his vision towards the luminous pearl again, a pained look was evident on his face.
My luminous pearl!
He then remembered that his target was Bai Qingqing, and she definitely wouldn’t mind it. Although this was an arduous path, he wouldn’t accept any other female, and he wasn’t afraid of being disdained either.
Bluepool’s face resumed its relaxed state, and he magnanimously waved a hand and said, “I’ll let it pass since it’s your child.”
Bai Qingqing smiled and cast a look at Curtis to indicate that they could leave now.
Curtis floated to the water surface with the bubble in his arms and didn’t burst it. It wasn’t a bad idea to regard this bubble as a protective shield to ward off the insects.
Parker, who had been anxiously waiting by the waterhole, shouted excitedly at the sight of Bai Qingqing. Roar! Roar! Roar! Roar!
