Chapter 921: Male Lead From the Dream Appears (1)
The reason he overlooked this was that snake beastmen were loners and didn’t have the habit of going around in groups. This was why he was caught unaware.
When Bai Qingqing saw the snake being smashed, she had the urge to fight it out with Mitchell.
However, at the next instant, a scorpion beastman came to report, “Your Majesty, those three beastmen have found their way here!”
Bai Qingqing’s eyes lit up once again, her brows raised and looking so proud that Mitchell gritted his teeth.
“Don’t be so proud!” Mitchell said harshly, “They definitely won’t be able to snatch you away!”
After saying that, Mitchell grabbed Bai Qingqing and walked out.
After leaving the stone room, Bai Qingqing could see nothing but darkness. Although her eyes were wide open, she couldn’t see anything at all.
She only felt Mitchell making turns after turns, going up and down, before eventually arriving in a spacious underground palace.
The other places were all so dark that she couldn’t see her own hand, being even darker than the place where the rootless beasts worked. However, the earth here emitted an obvious blue luminous light, allowing Bai Qingqing to see things clearly.
This underground palace was like the interior of a pyramid, being tall and spacious.
In the center of the underground palace, a scorpion beastman twice as big as the scorpion king Mitchell lay there lifelessly.
If it wasn’t because the huge scorpion turned his three red eyes on his side at the instant they came in, he’d look like a colored stone statue.
“Father, I’ve snatched a female. Her mates are a little strong. Let me hide here at your place for a while.” As Mitchell said this, he walked toward the huge scorpion.
As they got increasingly closer to the huge scorpion, Bai Qingqing’s breathing became increasingly lighter. She turned to bury her head into the animal skin.
She was so unsettled that she didn’t even notice it when one of her legs fell out from the animal skin and was enveloped by the cold air.
Just as they were finally going to pass by them, the huge scorpion suddenly moved.
It moved its three eyes that were in a row at the side of his body, and his gaze seemed to land on Bai Qingqing’s leg.
Bai Qingqing instantly felt a chill run down her spine. She just noticed that her leg was outside and thus moved her body, wanting to hide her leg that the huge scorpion had laid his eyes on.
Bai Qingqing was about to hide her leg into the animal skin when the huge scorpion suddenly raised his massive pincer and clamped her leg.
His sharp pincer immediately cut her tender skin and the wound started to bleed, with drops of blood landing onto the stone floor.
Bai Qingqing let out a short cry of pain, not daring to move. The strength of that pincer was too strong and also too sharp. She didn’t doubt that if she were to put up a struggle, it would break her leg.
“Father.” Mitchell sounded a little anxious as well, saying, “Females are very fragile. Her skin has been cut.”
The huge scorpion released a rustling sound akin to shells rubbing against sand and rocks. [This female’s skin is as fair as your mother’s.]
Mitchell raised his brows proudly and said, “Of course. She’s definitely prettier than Mother. Let go of her quickly. Females are scared of pain. She’ll cry.”
Bai Qingqing bore with the intense pain, rolling her eyes harshly in her heart.
As expected, the huge scorpion let go of her. Bai Qingqing quickly hid her leg in the animal skin, secretly sneaking a peek at the huge scorpion leg.
However, the huge scorpion stood up, his tall and big body casting down a stretch of shadow that covered her and Mitchell.
The shadow then shrank rapidly, and light once again cast down on Bai Qingqing and Mitchell. Then, Bai Qingqing saw a pale, long, and slender hand reach out in front of her face, flipping the animal skin.
Bai Qingqing held her breathing and looked up toward him. She instantly froze. “Saint Zachary…”
