Chapter 889: Obtained the Antidote (1)
She seemed to be wheedling, for there was a hint of cuteness in her manner.
The scorpion king’s heart skipped a beat, then immediately started racing.
This emotion came in fast and furious, making him unable to distinguish if it was an emotion he ought to have, or if it was due to the soul crystal on his chest.
As he had never experienced it before, the scorpion king was unable to restrain himself compared to ordinary beastmen. Clutching his chest, he started panting as though he couldn’t breathe.
Bai Qingqing looked up at him and asked gently, “Hey, are you alright? Are you injured?”
The scorpion king shook his head dazedly and smiled at her, then retrieved a heavy-looking bag from his waist.
“Look what I brought you.”
The scorpion king opened the animal skin bag, revealing a pile of crushed ice within. Amid the crushed ice laid an exquisite stone bottle.
Bai Qingqing’s pupils gradually enlarged, and she stared at the scorpion king in disbelief.
“Is this… the antidote?”
The antidote was even kept fresh using ice blocks. How classy.
The stripeless scorpion beastman which flashed across Bai Qingqing’s mind also used crushed ice to preserve the freshness of food.
But because of her intense desire to obtain the antidote, Bai Qingqing overlooked it.
The scorpion king nodded.
Overwhelmed with euphoric joy, Bai Qingqing immediately snatched the antidote from him and ran to An’an’s side.
The scorpion king froze as he stared at his own hand.
The warmth of the female lingered on his fingers, which coursed through his veins and nerves, all the way to his heart.
With a stunned expression on his face, the scorpion king marveled in astonishment inwardly: So warm!
Scorpion beastmen were also cold-blooded creatures. In fact, their blood wasn’t red but a semi-transparent blue.
They had a greater fondness for warmth compared to snake beastmen. It was due to their exceptional fondness for their spouse’s bodies that they weren’t able to control themselves during mating, leading to it transforming into violence.
Gazing at Bai Qingqing, the scorpion king was suddenly overwhelmed with an urge to snatch this female for himself.
Then, just like the other scorpion beastmen, hide his spouse in his nest and give birth to many little scorpions.
Bai Qingqing lifted An’an into her arms and placed the bottle next to her lips, then halted.
“How do we use this medicine? Finish it in one shot?” Bai Qingqing asked with uncertainty as she glanced up at the scorpion beastman, then down at the bottle in her hands.
Within was a clear light blue liquid.
The scorpion king clenched his fists and lowered his arms, then said, “Just drink it. I’m not sure how much venom is left in her body. To be on the safe side, I made the dosage of the antidote very low, so the venom might not be neutralized all at once.”
Bai Qingqing nodded. She quickly shook An’an to wake her up, then fed her the liquid.
An’an was so cold that her tiny body shivered. Tickled to see this, Bai Qingqing tapped her on her rosy and chubby little face.
“This is wonderful. At least next time when the venom acts up again she won’t be in such great torment.” A tear seeped from the corner of Bai Qingqing’s eye as she lowered her head and prepared to kiss An’an on the lips.
An icy yet tough hand came between them. The hand’s tough texture made Bai Qingqing feel as though she had kissed a shell.
The scorpion king’s fingers curled. Holding back the urge to grab that source of warmth, he said with a faint smile, “Be careful of the poison.”
Bai Qingqing instantly recalled that there were still traces of the antidote on An’an’s lips.
She revealed a grateful smile at the scorpion king. “Thank you so much, Shuu.”
“My name is Mitchell,” the scorpion king suddenly said.
“Ah?” Bai Qingqing sounded confused. “Previously you told me your name is Shuu…”
Mitchell lowered his gaze and looked at the black crystal on his chest. “That was a lie.”
Mitchell smiled and tilted up Bai Qingqing’s chin. “Remember this, my name is Mitchell.”
