Reading Bai Qingqing’s doubts, the ape king added, “The person I love is Jean. So long as my memories remain, my love for her will never face. But I like you, because you treat your mates incredibly well, so much so that it made me envious. Because of this, I like everything you do. Now that Jean is dead, I wish to help you. My only intention is to help you be safe.”
Only then did Bai Qingqing understand what was going on. She mused to herself that she had been startled for nothing. Although they were all beastmen, she felt that a relationship with the ape king would be too hardcore for her taste.
Delighted to receive help from the ape king, Bai Qingqing immediately said, “Shuu’s powers are too insignificant. Why don’t you control Mitchell’s body and help me get out?”
The ape king said, “It won’t go undetected by Saint Zachary. He could even sense our previous conversation, which is why I only contacted you in your frail state. This is the only way to completely avoid him. I have to stay here to trap him. Whether you succeed or not will depend on Shuu.”
Bai Qingqing nodded to express that she understood.
“Mitchell’s mental power is stronger than Shuu’s, to begin with. For Shuu to completely control him, you’ll have to get Mitchell to lose his consciousness,” the ape king added.
“Understood.” Bai Qingqing had long thought of this, and it was just that she had yet to get a chance to implement it.
Thankfully, she hadn’t implemented it, or else, if she were to be captured midway as the ape king said, she would then lose all hopes of escaping.
The ape king didn’t respond for a long while. Bai Qingqing anxiously searched everywhere, and suddenly, she felt her head spinning and a moan escaped her mouth.
“You’re awake.” Mitchell’s delighted voice entered her ears, though at the last syllable that delight turned into worry.
Now that Bai Qingqing was awake, his father would be taking action right away.
Bai Qingqing struggled from the chaotic marshland with much difficulty, focused her concentration, before weakly uttering out a word, “Cold~”
Mitchell immediately set down her and turned around to fetch firewood.
With the light from the fire, Bai Qingqing found a pomelo-sized rock, picked it up, and walked towards Mitchell.
“I’ll make the fire bigger. It will warm you in no time.” As Mitchell spoke, he halted in his speech when he saw the female walking over with a rock raised.
Bai Qingqing also instantly discovered the figure. She was originally hesitant, for she was afraid that, should she exert too little strength, she wouldn’t be able to knock him unconscious. On the other hand, should she use too much force, she was afraid she would accidentally kill him. Now, all these concerns were tossed out of her head, and she heavily slammed the rock at him by reflex.
After a muffled sound, Mitchell collapsed into the pile of fire, but somehow his head of long hair that was spread out in the flames didn’t catch fire.
As she had yet to recover from her illness, after slamming down that rock, Bai Qingqing herself fell as well. Seeing Mitchell lying in the fire, she hurriedly got up and pulled him out.
Despite being burned in the fire for a good few seconds, Mitchell surprisingly didn’t catch fire at all. Bai Qingqing was quietly amazed by the fact that his body didn’t catch fire easily.
“Shuu? Can you sense the outside world?” Bai Qingqing called out softly. As she spoke, she glanced in Saint Zachary’s direction.
It was pitch dark over there, as though there was nothing, as though something was separating the two sides.
Bai Qingqing tried calling out to the ape king once more but was met with no response. Seemed like he was focused on dealing with Saint Zachary at the moment.
“Hey, wake up.” Bai Qingqing shoved at Mitchell’s body, pressing the black crystal on his chest against his head.
If at this crucial moment Shuu fumbled the ball, she would burst into tears.
Bai Qingqing looked up at the skies, feeling like she would never be able to climb up that steep stone wall.
In her anxiousness, she didn’t notice the body she was holding onto move imperceptibly.
“Mm… don’t move… let me take a breather.”
The entirely different tone of voice caused Bai Qingqing to freeze instantly.
