Chapter 808: The Crystals Were Burned Into Ashes (1)
As it was suspended in the center of the ice crystal, it was obvious the chilliness coming from all directions emanated from this.
Lost in wonder, Parker rapped the ice flowers on the stone wall and edged closer to the ice crystals step by step, reaching out to touch them.
Just as his finger reached a centimeter of the ice crystal, Parker sensed an iciness spreading from his fingertip to his heart, opening the pores all over his body. Danger!
Though he very much wanted to poke at it to see what would happen, at the thought of Bai Qingqing waiting for him up there, he suppressed the overwhelming curiosity in his heart. He bent over and picked up a rock to smash at the ice crystal.
Bam! Before the rock managed to hit the ice crystal, it sprung away as though there was an invisible force acting against it. The rock fell to the ground and transformed into an ice rock.
Parker widened his mouth, feeling a lingering fear. That could very well have been his fate if he had acted recklessly.
In order to tell Bai Qingqing about this fascinating phenomenon, Parker especially knocked off a block of ice, before climbing back up.
Seeing sunshine once more, Parker felt incredibly comfortable from head to toe, and he let out a sigh of satisfaction.
Bai Qingqing was carrying An’an and playing with her.
There were little flowers of various colors amid the plentiful slim and long green grass that had spouted out among the rocks.
“An’an, this is a flower.” Bai Qingqing plucked a wildflower with a blue center and white edges and placed it under An’an’s nose for her to sniff at it.
An’an’s silvery-grey eyes merely rolled around and cast a glance at it, then she went on to ignore Bai Qingqing aloofly.
“I’m back.” Parker crawled up to the surface and laid on the ground to enjoy the sunshine.
Now that the chilliness in his body had been dispelled, he felt incredibly comfortable.
“Did you find it?” Bai Qingqing went up to him with An’an in her arms.
Parker chuckled, then reached into the animal skin bag at his waist and retrieved a block of ice and a rock.
“Eh? You can still find ice now?” Bai Qingqing asked in astonishment.
Seeing that her interest had indeed been piqued, Parker got even more gleeful. “When I went down I realized it was really cold. I looked around, and, in the end, I discovered a large patch of ice. This rock that contains crystals was also found in the vicinity. There are plenty around.”
Bai Qingqing felt a tad uncomfortable looking at the crystals standing erect together. With the baby in her arms, she didn’t even dare to go near.
As rocks were lying everywhere, Parker instantly smashed the rock that contained crystals.
Similar to the rock Winston brought back, seven crystals were embedded within.
Under the daylight, the crystals didn’t emit a chilliness and even refracted seven colors under the sunlight. With a tiny spot of light in the center, it was a lovely sight to behold.
“So pretty!” Parker picked up one of the crystals and gazed at it facing the sun.
Even Curtis cast his gaze in their direction.
Bai Qingqing, however, didn’t see what the big deal was about. Wasn’t it merely the refraction of light?
She suddenly realized, to her alarm, that Parker was about to aim the focal point of the crystals at his eyes. Panicking, she hurriedly slapped his hand away.
“Be careful not to be scalded,” cautioned Bai Qingqing.
“Huh?” Parker didn’t believe her.
Afraid he would commit the same mistake, Bai Qingqing handed An’an to Curtis and picked up a crystal, allowing the light spots to land on Parker’s arm.
“Do you feel hot?”
Parker’s eyes widened a little. “Really does feel a tad hot.”
Bai Qingqing felt uncomfortable touching the crystal for a second longer. Seeing that she had managed to convince Parker, she immediately placed the crystal back into his hands.
Parker, whose interest had been aroused, laid on his belly and fiddled with the crystal, aiming the focal point here and there. Suddenly, an idea struck him. He wanted to aim the focal point at a crystal, to see if it would result in even hotter light spots.
He immediately got down to action.
Dusting her hands, when Bai Qingqing casually glanced in Parker’s direction, she saw the crystal in his hands turning into black ashes instantaneously…
