Chapter 936: Escape (1)
Having been in the darkness for so long, when Bai Qingqing suddenly saw the bright light, her eyes felt a piercing pain. Even after having closed her eyes, she wasn’t able to cut off from the gleaming light rays.
Thankfully, An’an was wrapped up tightly with animal skin and wasn’t exposed to the sunlight. However, Bai Qingqing still didn’t feel assured and wrapped the animal skin tightly despite having her eyes closed.
“I’m finally out.” Bai Qingqing breathed in the air that had the scent of sunlight, feeling assured.
Muir patted off the sand from the animal skin on top of her head. He heaved a sigh of relief to see that her eyes were closed.
“I owe you another big debt now. I still don’t know your name. What’s your name?” Bai Qingqing asked.
Muir adjusted the wild beast skull on his head and looked at Bai Qingqing, seemingly hesitant to speak. The silence went on for very long.
Bai Qingqing didn’t get an answer and thus squinted her eyes, wanting to take a look at the guy. However, she had just opened her eyes a little when the piercing light rays caused her to tear up. She quickly closed her eyes again.
It didn’t seem as if he was wooing her or had some kind of ulterior motive, since he didn’t even give her his name. However, if he didn’t have any motive, why did he keep on helping her on so many occasions?
Bai Qingqing was perplexed, and she had a suspicion. “Do we know each other? I find you very familiar.”
Muir covered his face out of reflex. They could get along well as strangers, but if his identity was exposed, she’d probably immediately turn her face against him.
Just then, Winston and Parker came back up, calling out as they ran crazily toward Bai Qingqing.
Bai Qingqing could tell it was them and faced their direction, her eyes still closed. “Parker? Winston? Is Curtis there?”
Parker turned into his human form as he ran, running quickly with four limbs on the ground even in his human form. At the same time, he said, “Curtis is still below. We came up first!”
After saying that, he dashed right in front of Bai Qingqing and pounced down on her, licking her face non-stop.
Winston followed quickly behind him and also ran to Bai Qingqing’s side, holding onto one of her small and cold hands tightly.
Bai Qingqing gripped Winston’s hand back, raising her other hand to touch Parker’s face, breaking into a relieved smile.
“Winston, Parker, this is the beastman who saved me before. Parker, he’s the one you have to return 200 transparent crystals to.” Bai Qingqing pointed her finger in the male’s direction, but no one was there anymore.
When Muir saw the leopard and tiger beastmen, he entered the quicksand once again, disappearing from sight.
Parker and Winston looked over in the direction she pointed. They had also seen Muir earlier on, and when they saw that he had his face covered with a skull, they knew he didn’t wish to have his identity exposed. Therefore, neither of them explained.
“I know. I’ll go look for behemoths after we return to the village, returning the crystals as soon as possible.” Parker looked a little displeased. Of all the beastmen, it had to be that detestable eagle beastman who had saved him. However, he really had to thank Muir for staying with Qingqing.
Although that eagle beastman was just doing so to curry up to Qingqing.
The temperature outside was high, so Bai Qingqing tugged off her animal skin. Not long later, she felt that her skin was aching from sunburn and she curled her body, rubbing her shoulders.
Winston carried Bai Qingqing together with An’an, heading over to the temporary residence they lived in previously in huge strides. Parker picked up the dirty animal skin and used it to shade Bai Qingqing from the sun.
When they arrived at some cooler places on the way back, Bai Qingqing was able to barely see some things through tiny slits.
Winston was still carrying her, so when Bai Qingqing opened her eyes, she immediately saw his fatigued appearance. His bloodshot eyes gave her a big scare.
