Saint Zachary spurned this idea and suppressed those thoughts.
Afraid Chris’s body would be tainted, Saint Zachary quickened his footsteps towards Bai Qingqing.
Bai Qingqing squirmed, thinking he was going to beat her up.
However, Saint Zachary merely kicked at the ashes that carried a residual warmth, and with a “pa” sound, covered that pile of filth.
“I’ll prepare a bucket of sand for you. You’re not to dirty this place in the future. Or else, I’ll kill your baby!” Saint Zachary cast an icy glance at her, before leaving in fury.
Bai Qingqing let out a long exhale. With just a thin animal skin blanket over her, only then did she feel a piercing coldness. However, she wasn’t worried about herself and was only concerned that An’an would catch a cold.
At the thought of An’an possibly falling sick from the coldness, Bai Qingqing felt even more anxious about leaving.
She wondered if what Saint Zachary said about this place severing her connection with her mates was real.
Bai Qingqing looked out for the best spots for committing suicide, thinking of using this method to summon Curtis. At the same time, she familiarly gathered power, preparing to utilize Parker’s abilities.
Alas, she waited a long time and yet wasn’t able to gather the power in her body.
It was like her body had returned to its original state when she was single, with her completely unable to sense any power.
The shocked Bai Qingqing then tried to sense the power on her arm, yet it didn’t work either.
Had she really lost her connection with her spouses? If she wasn’t able to summon the powers from her spousal marks, would her mates be able to detect her location?
Bai Qingqing held the bundled up An’an tightly with a grim countenance.
Mitchell was then ordered by his father to attend to business. He came with a group of scorpion beastmen, bringing along a large bucket of fine sand, a stack of clothes, as well as some firewood.
Bai Qingqing grabbed a piece of animal skin and wrapped herself with it, then placed An’an into her arms. Surprisingly, An’an’s little body was still pretty warm. In contrast, her own skin felt colder.
But Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to be careless, for little kids’ body temperature tended to be higher than adults’.
With the baby in her arms, she crouched on the ground and started a fire once more.
The scorpion beastmen took out the items they brought with them and also took the chance to clear away the buried pile of filth on the ground. Finally, Mitchell was the only male left in the room.
He sized up the nervous-looking Bai Qingqing, and after a discussion with the black crystal, said, “I can open up another bedroom here that can more or less fend off the iciness from the ice beads.”
If it weren’t for him, Bai Qingqing would still be on vacation and not be in this state. Hence, she couldn’t bring herself to face Mitchell with a good attitude and merely responded with an “Mm” to show her agreement.
Mitchell didn’t get mad and simply pounded his fist upon a spot farthest away from the ice beads. With a loud bang, the entire stone room trembled, and a deep dent formed on the stone wall, with crushed rock scattered all over the floor.
Bai Qingqing and An’an were both startled. An’an nearly burst into tears, and it was only by grabbing at her mother’s chest that she barely managed to hold them back.
The rumbling sounded for several minutes before Mitchell finished construction of the new stone room.
Mitchell pushed out the crushed rock, then looked up at Bai Qingqing with a smile and said, “Alright, you may go in.”
Bai Qingqing’s legs had turned numb from all that trembling, but still, she was astounded by his speed in constructing a new room. When she walked in with her baby, she saw that it was indeed a spacious bedroom, complete with a rather even stone bed, and there was even a window above.
Probably for fear of her escaping, the window was only the size of a basketball.
Bai Qingqing was delighted to find that the indoor temperature was much warmer than outside, for ice had yet to form in this newly made bedroom.
