Chapter 909: Qingqing Was Captured?
Bai Qingqing had long noticed it. After Parker finished the mouthful, she asked, “It tastes alright, right?”
“Cough!” Parker quickly placed the cup back on Bai Qingqing’s side, saying pertinently, “After diluted with water, it can be drunk.”
Bai Qingqing smiled and let Winston have a taste of it as well. Winston felt that it wasn’t bad as well, and the two of them shared a cup between them.
Parker held it in for a while before squeezing the other lemon and also diluting it into juice, drinking it by himself.
They found delicacies in the oasis, and the days seemed more like a vacation.
After having good food and drink and having fun for a day, Bai Qingqing recovered from her cold the next day.
Early in the morning, before the sun was too hot, Bai Qingqing carried An’an and went out to look for food again.
Ever since Curtis slept last night, he still hadn’t woken up. They were going to be living here for a while anyway, so there was plenty of time for them to play together. Therefore, Bai Qingqing didn’t wake him up.
“Parker, let’s go out and take a walk around.”
To not disturb Curtis, Bai Qingqing spoke very softly.
Parker got up excitedly.
Bai Qingqing then looked toward Winston.
Winston said, “I want to go to Flame City to take a look.”
Bai Qingqing felt a little disappointed. “Then, go on. Be careful.”
Winston’s big hand landed on top of her head, rubbing it with moderate strength. He then turned into his tiger form and left.
It was best for him to go investigate the oasis. He wasn’t able to feel at ease just staying there like that.
Winston ran around the oasis once, didn’t detect any abnormality, then went to Flame City and tried to find out about the oasis.
The result he received was that no one knew about it.
He ran to the castle and was stopped by a few scorpion beastmen at the gates.
“The scorpion king isn’t in today. Come again next time,” said the scorpion beastman on guard, his attitude toward Winston still considered respectful.
Winston threw a glance inside, feeling doubtful. “The scorpion king isn’t in? Where did he go?”
The scorpion beastman said, “We have no idea. His Majesty won’t tell us everything.”
Winston nodded, then took out two strips of jerky and handed them to the scorpion beastmen.
“I only want to know when the scorpion king left. Do you guys know?”
The scorpion beastmen craved for the jerky the moment they smelled it and quickly took it before saying, “It’s fine to tell you. Many beastmen saw it. His Majesty had left yesterday. After you and that snake beastman left, he left right after. He hasn’t come back till now.”
“Thank you.” Winston nodded and turned to leave.
How could it be such a coincidence? Could the scorpion king’s traces be related to them?
However, at the thought of how the scorpion king was born a rootless beast, so no matter how beautiful Qingqing was, he wouldn’t be moved by her, Winston felt at ease.
He ran back to the oasis, following the path they took yesterday. He suddenly discovered that Qingqing’s location wasn’t there!
Did they leave the oasis?
No, that was impossible. It had gotten hot now, and the oasis was the most comfortable place to stay in. There was no way they’d move.
This meant that Qingqing must have been captured!
Winston felt anxious and immediately ran in Bai Qingqing’s direction.
Not long later, another green scenery appeared before his eyes.
The white tiger, who had been running frantically, slowed down a little. He felt a little stunned as he turned back and took a look. When he turned his head back to the front, the oasis still looked so clear.
Could it be that he had recognized the wrong direction?
Winston continued running forward, finding Bai Qingqing’s slender figure under the shade of the lemon forest.
She was wearing a white dress and was sniffing a lemon. Her beautiful looks seemed so far that it was almost translucent under the sunlight, her cheeks flushed with a healthy pink. She was wearing an intoxicated expression.
The young lady’s pure and tranquil disposition complemented well with the fragrance of the lemons, a pleasing sight to see.
Winston couldn’t help but be in a daze from looking at her. At the same time, he heaved a sigh of relief.
It was good as long as she wasn’t captured.
