Chapter 1074: Retaliation Plan

However, without Parker and Winston’s support, Bai Qingqing wouldn’t be able to climb to a high place by herself. She could only suppress her uneasiness and focus on recuperating.
The sound of the rain filled up the mountains and wilderness. The heavy rain came down strongly like the beating of a drum, and the sound of water droplets dripping along the sides of the cave was clear as wind chimes. The sound of drums and wind chimes intertwined, and, together with the occasional gust of strong gales, a beautiful melody of nature was played.
The chatting and laughter added a hint of warmth to the cave amidst the rain.
Bai Qingqing didn’t relax during her resting time. She complained to the others how filling the earth fissure with cold water was really a horrible idea. It wouldn’t inflict damage to the opponent while inflicting some damage on themselves. It was purely self-inflicting damages.
Both Parker and Winston looked embarrassed, hugging her, apologizing, and consoling her while feeling heartache for her.
“So, we were the cause of your illness.” Parker felt very regretful and had a strong wish to go back to a few days back, killing the him who had suggested this idea.
Bai Qingqing waved her small hand and said magnanimously, “It’s fine.”
She poked at the fire while feeling bored, making sparks and ashes rise. Bai Qingqing’s gaze then gradually turned cold as she asked, “Are there still oil at home?”
“As it’s the heavy rainy season, we had two barrels prepared at home. Why?” Parker could tell from her expression that she was plotting something to deal with Saint Zachary. He asked her seriously.
“That’s not enough.” Bai Qingqing’s voice was icy-cold, and she suddenly threw a glance at Muir as she said this.
Muir’s heart trembled intensely, and he immediately understood her idea.
She was thinking of using fire to deal with the scorpion beastmen. She must have recalled how he had used fire to burn Curtis in the past and thus looked at him so coldly now.
Muir avoided Bai Qingqing’s gaze and stared at the flames in a daze.
It was true that Bai Qingqing had recalled how Muir had used fire to deal with Curtis. But Muir had helped their family too much, and her anger toward him had long dissipated. She only felt rueful.
“Prepare more. This time around, we won’t pour water. We’ll change it to oil.” The opponent was already holding a blade above her head, so Bai Qingqing had to steel her heart. Even if it was a little brutal, it was nothing compared to the lives of her and her family.
If she still didn’t retaliate after being pushed to this extent, she wouldn’t be considered kind. She’d be a saintess.
Parker’s eyes immediately gleamed, and he then said, “The earth fissure is so big, it’s not easy to fill it up with water, let alone with oil? Even if we gather everyone from the village to extract oil, we wouldn’t be able to make it in time.”
Winston said in a deep voice, “We may be able to do it if we gather everyone from the village.”
Bai Qingqing shook her head and said, “No need for that. Oil is less dense than water, so we’ll fill it up with both oil and water, then light up the fire.” They’d be burned by the fire if they climbed up. Hot air moved upward. Even if they crawled up, they would hide in the water because they couldn’t stand the high temperature.
Both Winston and Parker’s eyes lit up again as if seeing hope. Winston quickly thought of something and said anxiously, “If they hide in the water, there’s a high chance that they’d try to dig underground to escape.”
Bai Qingqing smiled, but she didn’t realize the coldness in her eyes.
“Of course, but…” Bai Qingqing paused, her beautifully-shaped lips spurting a blood-thirsty voice. “They might still be able to crawl out if they try to withstand the pain of being roasted by fire. If they dig underground, it’d definitely waste a lot of time. We’ll continue to pour in water. When the water level rises, they’ll end up being drowned.”
There was one more thing that Bai Qingqing didn’t say. She wasn’t sure if soul crystals feared fire. With there being water under the oil, there was no need to fear that the soul crystals would be destroyed.
