Chapter 1052: Untitled
Bai Qingqing tugged at Curtis’s icy and smooth hair apologetically, saying weakly, “I’m sorry.”
Curtis’s expression immediately softened. At the thought of how happy his mate looked earlier, how could he possibly feel angry? The anger he felt toward Parker had also dissipated.
Bai Qingqing grinned, and her curled-up body shivered a little. Not wanting to wet the blankets, she could only wait. Seeing that, Winston hugged her tightly into his arms, using his warm and wide embrace to dispel her cold.
Bai Qingqing was tired from all the playing. After taking a hot water bath, she lay on the bed and fell asleep.
Winston dried her hair gently. When her hair was half-dried, he then found another piece of clean animal skin to cushion under her hair.
“Since you guys are back, I’ll be heading out,” said Winston, getting up.
Curtis didn’t really agree to this in his heart. Snow’s heart would probably ache for him if he started working when he had just recovered from his injuries. However, he didn’t comment on it and only said, “I’ll also go to transport food.”
With both of them out, Parker, the one who was best at taking care of others, was the only one left at home.
This rain wasn’t as heavy as the one from a few days back. The clarity was still very high. A black-haired man emitting an intense baleful aura stood upright in the rain, his eyes black as night gleaming with a maniacal glow.
Saint Zachary tugged off the black crystal around his neck harshly, clenching it tightly in his hand. His voice sounded sinister and emitted killing intent. “Useless thing!”
Laying low for one month was the limit of his endurance. Over the past few days, he saw eagle beastmen incessantly transporting the behemoths, but the behemoths didn’t attack. How could Saint Zachary not understand what had happened? This ape beastman’s evil plan had failed again.
The black crystal’s energy flashed, then released out mental power. Very soon, a beastman’s rough shape was formed and the energy fluctuations immediately weakened, showing off heavy feelings.
The ape king fell silent for very long, but he eventually told Saint Zachary the actual situation. “The group of behemoths has gone into chaos. It should be that the behemoth king has died and they are fighting for the position of the new king. They won’t have any intentions of killing others within a short time frame.”
By the time the new behemoth king was born, the group of behemoths would definitely suffer over 50% casualties. They were ruthless creatures that didn’t care what they ate. They could even eat members of their own species. By that time, even if they brought the behemoths to the City of Beastmen, they probably wouldn’t be able to create much trouble.
The ape king knew that he had suffered a complete defeat this time around. He had always underestimated the abilities of those few males, resulting in his defeats time and time again.
No, it wasn’t that he had underestimated his opponents. It was that their potential was too great, and, during critical moments, they’d always be able to erupt power that was stronger than usual.
Thinking this, the ape king didn’t dare to go up against Bai Qingqing’s mates anymore. His energy turned completely dull.
Saint Zachary had exerted a tremendous amount of tolerance to not crush this black crystal. He tossed it to his son, who was behind him, then headed toward the City of Beastmen.
Mitchell was surprised. He looked at the mud flowing all over the ground and said warily, “It’s the heavy rainy season now! Are you going to snatch Bai Qingqing now?”
“When have I, Saint Zachary, wasted time to get what I want? In the past, I had too many reservations and didn’t wish to hurt Curtis’s body. That was why I was defeated time and again. I can’t wait anymore. If I can’t catch Curtis alive, I’ll just kill him.”
Saint Zachary turned his head and threw a glance at his son’s face, which bore some resemblance to his mate. A hint of rare gentleness appeared on his face. “You don’t have to care about this matter. You’d be courting death if you were to go. Go back and hide in the earth fissure. I’ll come back after I’ve taken care of the matter.”
Mitchell pursed his lips and turned to head toward the earth fissure.
The City of Beastmen’s defenses couldn’t stop him and were even more non-existential to his father. This time around, his father was completely enraged. Things were probably really going to be bad for Bai Qingqing.
