Bai Qingqing didn’t say anything else but quietly started to think of ways to deal with him.
She threw a sideward glance at Mitchell. He seemed unperturbed, appearing strong and impregnable. The black crystal hung in front of his chest seemed to give off a reply, giving off a cool energy wave.
She couldn’t think of any solution, for now, so she anxiously thought of protecting herself. She made up her mind to not sleep, but she suddenly thought of another possibility. What if she was knocked out by Saint Zachary’s sneak attack?
At this thought, she then thought of how she could also look for an opportunity to knock Mitchell out.
Bai Qingqing’s heartbeat hastened. The joy of having a chance to escape made her very excited. She had to bite on the tip of her tongue to bear with it and ensure that her expression didn’t change.
She had to put things into action quickly, before Mitchell and Saint Zachary thought of this method.
On the ground, Parker and Winston were done setting up the water pipes and were still hesitating.
“I wonder how Qingqing is. If we don’t take action, she might be turned into Chris by Saint Zachary.” Feeling anxious, Parker turned into his human form in front of Winston.
This was already the latter half of the night, the darkest and coldest of the entire day. Winston thought of how that small and weak female was now shriveled in a corner with her thin clothing. He felt both anxious and hesitant.
Those two scorpion beastmen hadn’t gotten clothing for Qingqing to warm up but had only occasionally come up to the ground to pick some firewood. The firewood was also damp, so what use could they be? They’d only create so much smoke that Qingqing would cough non-stop.
That wouldn’t do. Qingqing’s life would be in danger at any moment. They didn’t have a better idea.
Finally, Winston’s fear and worry overcame him. He threw Parker a glance, whose expression instantly turned solemn.
Winston jumped off the branch and ran off quickly. He was going to the water source to pour water into the pipes while Parker would be responsible for watching over the place. His speed was fast and he excelled in climbing trees. It’d make things easier for him to escape.
Parker waited on the tree for a while, estimated that it was about time, then jumped off the tree and poked a few pipes into the earth fissure.
Swoosh swoosh swoosh—
The sound of water resonated in the earth fissure.
With multiple pipes at work, the water flow wasn’t weak. However, it was still insufficient to a long, narrow, and deep earth fissure. It was impossible to fill it up within a short time period.
Parker watched over this place, only thinking of this upon hearing the sound. His countenance changed, and he had the feeling that their plan was going to fail.
Although Saint Zachary didn’t get any fruitful result from Bai Qingqing, he was still feeling so excited that he found it hard to sleep at the thought that he’d be able to bring his beloved mate back to life very soon.
When he heard the strange water sounds at the beginning, he didn’t pay it much heed. After a while, a layer of water appeared on the ground, and a hint of displeasure immediately flashed on his face.
He didn’t have to think to know that this was the work of Bai Qingqing’s mates. He felt a little regretful that he didn’t kill them in the day.
The water also reached the place where Mitchell and Bai Qingqing were staying. Mitchell was anxious about protecting the fire and didn’t give it much thought. It wasn’t until he walked over amidst the flickering light that he immediately stopped what he was doing.
Bai Qingqing’s nerves instantly tensed up, and she shifted closer to Mitchell, staring at Saint Zachary warily.
Of course, Bai Qingqing knew what was the problem with the water on the ground. She was just caught between laughter and tears. How long were they planning to channel in water to fill up such a big earth fissure? Saint Zachary would have noticed it long ago.
Saint Zachary threw a glance at the energetic Bai Qingqing, feeling anxious, and then said in a cold voice to Mitchell, “Go and check things up there.”
Fearing that Bai Qingqing would threaten him with her body again, Saint Zachary didn’t dare to tell Mitchell outright to kill her mates. However, his voice and gaze emitted strong killing intent.
Bai Qingqing, as a female, might not be able to sense it, but there was no way that Mitchell would mistake it.
