Chapter 1056: Untitled
It was no surprise that Curtis was once again defeated after a few rounds of exchange.
The scorpion poison acted up. Although Curtis still looked ferocious, the hint of pauses in his actions revealed a great weakness. Saint Zachary was able to suppress him with great ease. He raised his scorpion pincer and pierced toward Curtis’s heart.
Bai Qingqing held onto a snake scale and pressed it against her neck. She dashed into the rain and glared at Saint Zachary fiercely, saying, “If you kill him, I’ll destroy this body!”
Muir was taken by great shock. He quickly gave chase after her into the rain, cooing away.
Saint Zachary paused as well. Curtis took the opportunity to put up a struggle, and Saint Zachary swung his pincer down. Blood splattered out together with the rain.
The snake’s body trembled intensely, then started twisting physiologically.
“Curtis!” Bai Qingqing subconsciously exerted strength, and a trickle of blood flowed out from her neck. It washed down to a light pink color by the rainwater, landing on the ground and disappearing.
Saint Zachary immediately tossed the snake aside, not moving for fear that she would go crazy.
Muir went up to Bai Qingqing’s side, using his head to nudge her, wanting to get her indoors. Bai Qingqing didn’t throw him a single glance and waved away Muir’s head with one hand. She looked toward Curtis.
Curtis’s white stomach was still fluctuating slightly. He was covered in blood, and even the heavy rain was unable to wash it off.
Bai Qingqing’s heart ached, but she secretly felt a little more at ease.
Having been with Curtis for three years, Bai Qingqing was clear where his heart was located. Saint Zachary’s attack hadn’t been accurate. It only inflicted him with serious injuries and wouldn’t kill him.
The reason Curtis was so weak was mostly due to the scorpion poison and the excessive loss of blood.
Saint Zachary saw how blood was flowing out incessantly from the female’s fair neck and stopped, turning into his human form.
“I can spare his life, but you guys will still die sooner or later. Why the need to put up a desperate struggle?” Saint Zachary went straight to the point.
She had never seen Curtis in such a sorry plight before. She looked toward Saint Zachary, the one who had inflicted Curtis with such serious injuries, her gaze filled with bitter hatred.
Bai Qingqing raised her chin stubbornly and said, “Since we’re going to die, either way, I want to live for a few more days with Curtis. But if you kill him, I’ll die immediately.”
At the very last instant, Bai Qingqing recalled how she still had one trump card. That was Shuu, who was with Mitchell.
After returning to the village, she slowly thought back and noticed that Shuu showed suspicions of helping Mitchell. The reason was so that he’d get to spend more time with her.
But if it was a matter that concerned her life and death, Shuu would definitely not continue to help Mitchell. He’d definitely choose to stand on her side.
Regardless, things couldn’t be any worse than they currently were. If they could stay alive, there might be a chance for them to escape.
Saint Zachary kept his eyes on Bai Qingqing, who was focused on taking care of her mate, his eyes emitting a gaze that resembled infatuation. He had victory on his hands now. At the thought that Chris would treat him with this attitude in the future, his heart softened.
“Alright! I won’t kill him,” Saint Zachary said generously, throwing a glance toward the snake beastman and thinking, Maybe this body could still be saved. Maybe I can still use it somehow.
Bai Qingqing heaved a huge sigh of relief.
Saint Zachary walked toward her, looking toward the restless Muir, killing intent once again flowing out from his eyes.
This eagle beastman wasn’t Bai Qingqing’s mate. It shouldn’t be a problem to kill him.
Sensing Saint Zachary’s killing intent, Muir backed off rationally.
Saint Zachary’s target was Bai Qingqing. At this critical moment, he didn’t wish to create more ramifications and thus didn’t give chase.
At this moment, a commotion came from the back.
