The glimmer of hope shone in Bai Qingqing’s eyes once more. She blinked her eyes.
Muir retracted his hand from the top of her head, retrieved a heavy-looking bag from his waist, and handed it to her.
Bai Qingqing wasn’t used to taking something from someone else without repaying them, but at this moment, she could care less as she hurriedly took the bag from him.
Opening the bag, she saw about a hundred crystals within.
Even though the situation was urgent, Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but freeze in surprise.
Back then, just one transparent crystal and Curtis could buy all the rice that the sheep village possessed. And this person had so many of such crystals.
Muir selected a few green crystals and said, “These should be sufficient to save his life.”
Only then did Bai Qingqing snap out of her trance and gaze gratefully at the figure, saying, “Words aren’t sufficient to express my gratitude. When Parker gets well, I’ll get him to repay you doubly.”
Of course, this debt of gratitude couldn’t be repaid in its entirety regardless of how many crystals they gave him. Bai Qingqing still had more to say, but she decided to do so after saving Parker.
Muir dragged Parker to a clean spot, and Bai Qingqing hurriedly stuffed the crystals into the leopard’s mouth.
The crystals were incredibly tough, the most resilient objects in the beastman world, comparable to the diamonds of the modern ages. But once it came into contact with saliva, it would speedily melt, the way ice did when it was engulfed in flames.
As Parker’s mouth was filled with blood, the crystals remained in their solid form even when placed in his mouth. Bai Qingqing pried open his mouth and directly stuffed the crystal down his throat.
Muir gripped Bai Qingqing’s hand and said, “It won’t digest this way.”
Bai Qingqing hesitated for a second, then removed the crystal from his mouth, wiped it haphazardly, then stuffed it into her own mouth.
The crystal instantly melted into a pure liquid bursting with energy, sliding into one’s throat.
Bai Qingqing quickly lowered her head and allowed the energy liquid to slip into the leopard’s mouth, without wasting a drip.
A faint fluorescent glow could be seen in the darkness, filled with enigmatic and romantic colors.
Bai Qingqing smiled, grabbed a bunch of transparent crystals, and stuffed them into her mouth. Then, she continued feeding Parker in the same way.
Very quickly, a bag of transparent crystals entered the leopard’s stomach.
Parker’s breathing started stabilizing, and his body temperature began dropping.
Kneeling beside Parker, Bai Qingqing pressed her face against the leopard’s head and gently rubbed against it.
Suddenly, a palm facing up appeared before Bai Qingqing, upon which seven or eight light green semi-translucent crystals were seen.
Bai Qingqing looked up in confusion.
Muir said, “These are for you.”
As Bai Qingqing couldn’t clearly see the color of the crystals, she thought they were transparent crystals, so she took them.
Muir cast one final lingering gaze upon Bai Qingqing, before suddenly getting up and briskly walking into a tunnel, and very quickly disappeared from sight.
Bai Qingqing pinched the crystals and was about to feed them to Parker when she heard abrasion sounds against the ground.
Looking up, Bai Qingqing saw a gigantic snake slithering in their direction.
“Curtis, you’re finally back.” Bai Qingqing’s eyes, which had only just stopped tearing, started stinging again.
Curtis speedily slithered to her side. He swept his gaze over her body, and only when seeing that she wasn’t injured, miserly cast a gaze towards that leopard lying on the ground.
“Was he attacked?”
Curtis, who sniffed the scent of the eagle beastman, emanated a murderous aura as he turned his head and surveyed his surroundings.
“Mm.” Bai Qingqing peered left and right and let out an “eh” sound.
“Someone did us a huge favor earlier. Or else, Parker would surely have died. Where is he?”
“Favor?” Curtis looked doubtful as he stared at her.
Bai Qingqing nodded. “Parker had a breakthrough and earned his fourth stripe earlier. That person said Parker was going to die.”
