Chapter 807: The Miraculous Ice Droplets
Turning her head, she saw that An’an was lying upon the animal skin on the rock.
Several big black birds that resembled crows flew towards the baby, who was staring dazedly at those creatures.
“Ah! Shoo!” Bai Qingqing shouted as she ran over. Despite their large sizes, she reached out to hit the big black birds flying towards her baby.
With wings that measured more than a meter long when spread out, the big black birds didn’t appear that much smaller than Bai Qingqing. It was unclear who would have the upper hand if they got into a brawl. The birds instantly launched into an attacking stance.
But before they could touch Bai Qingqing, they were sent flying by an enormous snake’s tail. Slammed against rocks, blood spewed profusely from their broken heads, and, after some struggling, they died.
Curtis quickly grabbed Bai Qingqing’s hand and saw the visible scar on her pink palm, the wound from being cut by the leaf previously.
“Are you tired of living?” The rage in Curtis’s voice was unmistakable. Only when he saw that Bai Qingqing was completely unscathed, did his rage dispel a little.
“I haven’t even pursued the matter of you getting injured previously. Do you really regard yourself as a male?”
Bai Qingqing lowered her head and twiddled her index fingers. How could she consider so many things when she saw An’an in danger?
But at the mention of that injury, the sheepish Bai Qingqing lowered her head docilely while Curtis lectured her.
Seeing Snow in this manner, regardless of how angry Curtis was, he couldn’t bear to flare up at her. He then glanced at the black birds’ corpses, feeling strange.
“I was at fault for not protecting you well. I hadn’t expected there to be necrophagous eagles here,” said Curtis.
Necrophagous eagles specialized in eating half-eaten prey or young beastmen without the ability to fend for themselves. This place was strewn with rocks, and hardly any animals were seen. How could necrophagous eagles appear in such a place?
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. “Thankfully, we’re all fine. Those birds are huge. Let’s bring them back to eat later.”
“It doesn’t taste good,” said Curtis.
Bai Qingqing didn’t believe him. Staring at the fat birds, she got up and said to him as she walked, “Look after An’an.”
Bai Qingqing walked to the bird’s corpse and squatted down, then poked the black bird with a rod.
To her surprise, the bird wasn’t yet completely dead. It suddenly flapped its wings, fanning a sour and rotten stench in her direction. It was an intense odor that choked the senses.
Bai Qingqing immediately covered her nose, got up, and retreated backward.
Curtis gazed at her with an amused look. “Do you believe me now?”
Bai Qingqing nodded with a bitter expression.
Her vision turned towards Parker in the earth fissure.
In the pitch-dark space, a pair of green glowing eyes were moving as it peered here and there.
Underneath, some rocks gave off a faint luminous light. Although invisible to the human eye, it was sufficient for leopards to see everything in there.
An air current floated over from god-knows-where, bringing a chilly gaze upon Parker, making him feel as though he had traveled back in time to the cold season.
Other than being cold, the wind was pungent and indistinctly sounded like the tragic cries of a female.
Parker cautiously moved forward as he walked on the rocks in search of the direction from which the cold wind came from.
Suddenly, a patch of tiny light specks that resembled a sea of stars appeared in the darkness before him.
Parker froze. Wondering what that was, he proceeded even more carefully now.
He walked over and saw that it was as he had expected—plenty of eight-faceted crystals were embedded in the stone wall.
Back then when Winston came it was still the cold season, so he probably hadn’t noticed the abnormal coldness, thus missing out on this large batch of crystals.
Parker reached out a hand to feel the crystals. Though they were icy to the touch, this much chilliness couldn’t have come entirely from them.
He randomly pried off a rock with a crystal embedded into it, then continued with his search.
With the glow from the crystals, Parker finally located the source of the coldness… a blue ice droplet.
In actual fact, that entire patch was made up of ice droplets. Why was it said that these ice droplets were the source of that coldness?
