Chapter 30: The Appearance of a Homeless Beast
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“Why is it a pity?”
“It’s a pity that it landed in my hands.” There was a murderous look in Parker’s hands as he declared wilfully, “I’m going to burn it. Serves him right for seducing my female!”
Bai Qingqing, who grew up in a civilized society and received a civilized education, naturally didn’t share the same barbaric thinking as beastmen. She felt it was inappropriate.
She was the one who brought back this snakeskin. Moreover, it was something important to a snake beastman. How could they just burn it?
“No way! You’d better return it.”
“Hmph! He deserves death! Not only am I going to burn his snakeskin, but I’m also going to gather the tribe to kill him.” Parker carried a pile of firewood and walked out to start a fire outside.
Seeing Parker’s tough attitude, Bai Qingqing held back the uncomfortable sensation and, carrying the snakeskin with her, quietly left.
By the time Parker started the fire and looked up, Bai Qingqing had disappeared with the snakeskin. He was both furious and anxious. “This stupid female! Didn’t I tell her that homeless beasts are wicked!”
Parker hurriedly ran out of the village.
Carrying the heavy snakeskin, Bai Qingqing had just gotten to the entrance of the valley when she halted in her footsteps.
A naked young man stood outside the village. He was of a tall frame, his skin was extremely fair, reminding one of the vampires one read in Western folklore. His hair was of a Vermillion red and cascaded over his shoulders like a waterfall all the way down to his butt.
Unlike the wild appearance of a leopard, he was handsome in a soft and gentle way. Combined with his emotionless bloodshot eyes that were devoid of desires, it made one feel a piercing coldness.
Right now, this pair of bloodshot eyes were staring fixedly at Bai Qingqing.
Bai Qingqing felt her body turn cold by his stare. She widened her eyes and gazed at him, her vision accidentally sweeping to his naked lower body. And she saw that there were two penises there!
Bai Qingqing blinked, feeling like her eyes must be playing tricks on her. But her reserved nature as a female kept her from looking towards that spot again.
The most striking thing about this man wasn’t his red hair or red eyes, but those four animal stripes on his face. There were two wavy green tattoos on each side of his face.
The number of animal stripes was twice that of Parker’s, who was the strongest in his tribe. Even as a person from an alternate world, Bai Qingqing could sense that this beastman was very powerful.
Parker’s panicked voice could be heard from behind. Bai Qingqing abruptly turned around to see Parker running towards her, yelling, “Come over quickly!”
It was only then that Bai Qingqing realized the man before her was a homeless beast. She was about to run when, unexpectedly, she was being held forcefully in place by a cold and large hand.
That hand was unbelievably cold, so cold that Bai Qingqing felt like her blood had coagulated.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t support the weight of the overly heavy snakeskin with one hand and nearly dropped it, instinctively hugging it to her chest with one arm.
This detail caused the pleased Cortis’s red eyes to glow.
He hadn’t come to snatch a female and was merely passing by and decided to stay for the time being seeing the clear lake waters here. Unexpectedly, after swimming one round in the lake today, when he returned he realized that his snakeskin was gone, replaced only with a pleasant-smelling scent of a female.
Following his own scent, he traced his way here and found the female holding onto his snakeskin.
She wasn’t very good-looking, but her eyes were inexplicably charming. She didn’t have any marks of having a mate on her body. Perhaps she hadn’t yet come of age.
This was a suitable choice of mate for him.
Bai Qingqing turned her head and looked at Cortis. Now that she was this close to him, she realized that this man was very tall, and her head didn’t even reach his chest. His body was slim and long, but it didn’t appear scrawny and weak. Instead, he had proportionate and beautiful muscles all over his body.
He was clearly more than ten meters away from her, yet he got to her side in the blink of an eye. How fast was that?
Parker roared upon seeing that Bai Qingqing was captured. His eyes had turned red in anxiety as he transformed into his beast form after letting out a growl. His muscular body pounced at the snake beastman like a tiger pounced on its prey, completely ignoring the fact that he was facing a four-striped opponent.
Unexpectedly, it turned out to be a four-striped homeless beast. He was too careless.
The leopard’s roar echoed throughout the valley as the skirt he burst through fell from the air slowly.
The leopard’s ferocious figure was reflected in Cortis’s peaceful eyes. As it became nearer and clearer, he still didn’t make a move.
It was only until the leopard came within 10 meters of him that a black and red figure flashed across the skies, followed by a loud growl as the leopard fell heavily on the ground.
Cortis’s lower body transformed into a snake tail that was more than 10 meters long with a red base and black spots, like an enlarged version of a red-banded snake. The strong contrast between the black and red colors made one’s scalp turn numb.
Especially since Bai Qingqing had a fear of snakes.
Bai Qingqing’s widened eyes were filled with terror, feeling like something was blocking her breathing passageway. Despite opening her mouth wide, she was unable to breathe. It was only when she heard Parker’s growl that she turned her stiff neck around to look.
