Chapter 1065: Untitled
Mitchell understood his intention and fell silent momentarily. Without him watching over the flame on the ground, it suddenly extinguished, and all of a sudden, the place plunged into pitch darkness.
“Yes,” Mitchell responded, then prepared to leave.
Bai Qingqing hugged his arm even more tightly. Sensing Mitchell moving his arm, her face turned pale. “Don’t.”
Unable to see a single thing, she dared not face Saint Zachary.
Mitchell suddenly couldn’t bear to do it. This feeling in his heart was faintly discernible like a smudge of white smoke, but under Shuu’s influence, it intensified.
The soul crystal was at its strongest at this moment. If it weren’t for his father’s immense oppressiveness, Mitchell very nearly handed over the control of his body to Shuu out of habit.
Even then, this fleeting moment of hesitation was sufficient to induce great displeasure in Saint Zachary. He growled in a deep voice. “What are you waiting for?!”
Mitchell instantly retracted his arm and transformed into a scorpion before crawling away, making “thud thud thud” sounds as he did so.
Bai Qingqing scooped around in the air but didn’t manage to grab anything. All she could hear was the sound of shells bumping against rocks, a sound which was getting increasingly far. Now that Mitchell had left, she was left alone with Saint Zachary, and her uneasiness at this moment had reached its peak since she was abducted.
The water had risen to the back of her feet. Perhaps because the other side of the water had flowed down to the place where the ice beads had crystallized nearby, the water was extremely icy, nearly causing her feet to freeze on the ground.
As though the water was stirred by something, the sounds of the water approached her this very instant.
Bai Qingqing widened her eyes which could not see a single thing, her body unconsciously trembling as she instinctively retreated backward.
She accidentally stepped on a rock protruding from the ground, causing her to let out a shriek and fall sitting on the water, creating huge ripples all around her.
Right away, Bai Qingqing felt like she had fallen into a fridge, with the icy water splattered all over her body, the temperature so freezing cold that she nearly transformed into an ice sculpture instantly.
A strong hand pulled her arm, with such a great force that she felt like the other party wasn’t trying to help her up but trying to snap her arm instead, making her furrow her brows in pain. But still, she nimbly climbed to her feet nonetheless.
“Are you very cold?” The physical contact with Bai Qingqing’s body made Saint Zachary realize how tremendously she was trembling, and her skin also didn’t feel as warm as when he touched it previously.
Bai Qingqing scoffed. “If I say I’m cold, will you find me clothes?”
“No,” Saint Zachary replied immediately.
Bai Qingqing pouted, surprised by his bluntness. It was rare that someone would show concern for a person one moment, then choose not to satisfy that person’s request the very next second. Beastmen’s logic was truly hard to fathom.
Reading Bai Qingqing’s impatience, Saint Zachary explained, “You people are always so cunning. I don’t even dare to leave when your mates show up and provoke me. What am I to do if after I leave, a beastman more formidable than Mitchell shows up and abducts you?”
Bai Qingqing was shocked to hear this. Oh right, to think this hadn’t occurred to her. This might perhaps be a plot by Parker and her other mates. Too bad Saint Zachary saw through their plot.
Although Parker and Winston hadn’t thought of this, Saint Zachary’s speculation was extremely close to reality, for a male had yet to make an appearance there.
Muir had followed Parker all the way here, from the time the latter returned to the City of Beastmen. His black body was well hidden in the dark rainy night and blended well with the surroundings, going unnoticed.
Hearing Parker and Winston’s conversation, he waited in silent anticipation. But unexpectedly, shortly after, a scorpion beastman came crawling out.
Parker and the hidden Muir both froze. They had thought that after pumping in the water the scorpions would sink, but they didn’t expect to see one crawling out so quickly.
