Upon hearing this, Saint Zachary cast a cold glance at Bai Qingqing.
Even though Bai Qingqing couldn’t see Saint Zachary staring at her, she shivered for some reason, and her drenched body turned even colder.
Saint Zachary walked outwards a few steps but remained resolute in not going up there. He merely said, “If you wish for Bai Qingqing to freeze to death, you may continue pouring in water.”
Though his voice wasn’t loud, it was deep and sounded as though it carried a formless strength, piercing through the loud sounds of water and masking the torrential rain taking place above the ground, entering Parker and Muir’s ears perfectly clearly.
Parker froze. Since the scorpion beastman could still speak, it went to show that this water couldn’t drown them to death. Oh yeah, this wasn’t like a cramped tunnel with nowhere to hide. There was sufficient space in the earth fissure that allowed the scorpion beastmen to easily climb up the walls if necessary.
However, Qingqing could only remain under the water. Thus, if the earth fissure was flooded, she would be the only one to drown to death.
Moreover, with her being so frail, she might just freeze to death even before she drowned.
At this thought, Parker’s face instantly turned pale, and he hurriedly removed the water pipe.
“I’ll go notify Winston. Stay here and watch over things.”
Having said that, Parker transformed into a leopard and sprinted off maniacally without waiting for Muir’s reply.
Now that the sounds of water had stopped, Saint Zachary retracted his gaze in satisfaction and moved towards Bai Qingqing and Mitchell.
“Hey you, wake up.”
Bai Qingqing felt her way to Mitchell’s side and, stung by his tough, icy, and prickly shell, she retracted her hand by reflex, before emboldening herself to shove at him.
Surely he’s not dead?
Mitchell moved slightly to indicate that he was still alive, making Bai Qingqing heave a sigh of relief.
Yes, Mitchell was frail now, but since Saint Zachary was here, Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to ask Shuu to do anything and merely leaned against Mitchell’s tough body to rest.
The skies gradually brightened, and the rain outside got lighter. When daytime arrived, the three males outside felt a little less tense.
With souls being weaker during the day, Qingqing ought to be safe right now.
Within the earth fissure, after several hours, the water from aboveground had seeped underneath, forming a thin layer of ice on the ground surface, emitting wisps of white smoke that slithered on the ground surface like a snake. The temperature was like that of the cold season.
Wearing just a thin snakeskin dress, due to being drenched with water, traces of ice formed on the surface of her clothes. She was so badly affected by the coldness that bruises had formed over her fair skin, and she was so cold that she could no longer feel it. Curled up on a rock, a drowsy feeling crept over her.
Even though she could take it no more, Bai Qingqing refused to shut her eyes. She couldn’t be certain if it was day or night, so she had to do her best to stop Saint Zachary from verifying the soul crystal.
Saint Zachary touched Bai Qingqing’s body, and his brows creased tightly.
He glanced at his son, whose eyes were closed as he rested, then very quickly turned away and crawled to the spot underneath the earth fissure entrance and said to the person above, “Bai Qingqing is about to freeze to death.”
Since there was free labor, he might as well make use of it.
The three males above were furious and anxious. But even for Parker, his worry exceeded his anger as he hurriedly ran towards the village to fetch over some clothes.
Winston, on the other hand, gathered some firewood at the quickest speed possible and tossed them inwards as though he was throwing in a pile of garbage.
Having obtained what he wanted, Saint Zachary’s countenance eased a bit, and he brought the items to the innermost corner to Bai Qingqing’s side.
After the female’s icy and stiff body was wrapped in animal skin and a fire was started, her body temperature started rising.
“Go ahead and sleep, it’s daytime now.”
Saint Zachary saw through Bai Qingqing’s persistence, and, heart softening in a rare instance, he reminded her out of kindness.
After all, this was a body his spouse would possess in the future, plus the fact that he had a natural fondness of Bai Qingqing, there was no reason for him to leave her be.
Only then was Bai Qingqing’s heart put to ease, and she allowed herself to lose consciousness.
