“How did you find out about my identity?” Shuu asked curiously.
Bai Qingqing hesitated for a moment before saying, “I got my hands on a female’s soul crystal previously. It’s the exact same as yours, but of a different color.”
“So, that’s how it is.”
Bai Qingqing looked at the current “scorpion king”, feeling dumbstruck. “I didn’t know then that the soul crystal can control one’s body.”
“Don’t be scared. Females have weak bodies, and their souls are even weaker. It’s impossible for them to take over your body. I was a three-striped beastman when I was alive, that’s why I’m able to take over his body occasionally. However, this can only happen with his permission.”
Bai Qingqing felt relieved and let out a long exhale, saying, “That’s good.”
She then said, “Since you can’t bring me out, then tell me about the situation here. Where am I? Are my mates very far away?”
“This place is below the oasis. It’s the scorpion tribe’s nest.”
Shuu lowered his head dejectedly. When he saw that the flames were going to extinguish, he used a little bit of his energy to control his hand, adding a few more pieces of firewood to the flames.
Bai Qingqing was elated. “This means that my mates will be able to find their way here very soon.”
“I think so.”
Shuu lowered his head and said, “Therefore, don’t agitate and anger him any more. The way to go is to protect yourself and wait for your mates to come and save you. He’s proud by nature. So, the more you resist, the more violent he becomes. You should learn from other females in this aspect. You just need to act more coyly and give in to him more. He’ll definitely be more softhearted, then.”
Bai Qingqing rolled her eyes strongly, snuffing to this.
“No, I must save myself!” As Bai Qingqing said this, she stood up. “You just stay here and don’t move, try to hold him back as much as possible. I’ll be leaving.”
After saying that, Bai Qingqing picked up a piece of burning firewood, covered herself with the animal skin, and left with An’an.
Shuu watched the female’s departing figure, a hint of reluctance flashing by in his eyes. His pair of pitch-black eyes stared at the door in a daze, the expression suddenly turning from gentleness to sharpness.
It had been less than a minute since Bai Qingqing left when she heard urgent footsteps coming from behind her. She was surprised and immediately turned to take a look.
The black-haired young man was walking over in huge strides. Bai Qingqing could recognize Mitchell’s arrogant disposition. However, there was no fury on his face at all. Instead, there was a hint of joy.
“You should listen to him.” Mitchell didn’t even mind the fact that Shuu had used his body without his permission. He was clearly in a good mood.
Under Shuu’s control, the lust he felt had dissipated, and his ruthlessness naturally dissipated as well.
Mitchell caught up to Bai Qingqing, grabbed her shoulders tightly, and asked, “You found a female crystal? Tell me where it is!”
Bai Qingqing gasped in pain, bending over.
Mitchell quickly let go, only realizing that he had hurt the female. He pulled the animal skin away, wanting to take a look, but almost caused Bai Qingqing to drop An’an.
Bai Qingqing managed to protect An’an but wasn’t able to hold onto the torch. The burning piece of wood fell to the ground, sending sparks flying.
Mitchell carried her up horizontally and brought her back to that stone room again. A black tail appeared behind him, producing friction as he dragged it along.
By the time he placed Bai Qingqing onto the stone bed, a scorpion beastman brought clean water.
“I’m sorry. To think that I hurt you this badly.” Mitchell felt upset when he saw the blood traces on the stone bed. However, being born a rootless beast meant that he had a tranquil heart that remained unmoved. He didn’t feel any emotions now.
It wasn’t until he saw Bai Qingqing’s hurt skin that his calm heart felt hints of pain.
Bai Qingqing was wary against Mitchell. When she saw that he wanted to help her clean her wounds, she quickly poured water over her own body.
