Chapter 314: The Rain Fell in a Rhythmic Manner
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
However, was this rain a little too rhythmic? If it wasn’t for the fact that the atmosphere was too solemn, Bai Qingqing would have burst out laughing.
Those patches of water droplets were heavy yet dense, and as they battered upon the dusty ground, they slapped up a flurry of dust. The beastmen nearby could smell the moistened earth, and tears of excitement welled up in their eyes.
They took the lead in getting everyone to howl. That sound had an infectious effect, and very soon everyone was joining in the howling.
Amidst the rain, as the beastmen roared, they raised their heads towards the skies to fetch the rainwater.
That’s right, it had started raining again. Even these chaotic screams made the rain fall.
Bai Qingqing covered her entire face with both hands. Forget it, just let them scream in a disorganized manner. With the rain falling so rhythmically, it would make one suffer from internal injuries.
The cloud slowly drifted forward, and the rain was now falling over an enlarged area. Bai Qingqing opened her arms wide and raised her head, feeling the coolness as the raindrops beat fall upon her face, her raised heart landing back to its original position.
Curtis was perhaps the happiest among them, for he couldn’t do without water more than any of them. It was only for her sake that he chose to guard this land of drought.
Bai Qingqing turned her head sideways to look at him. Curtis also stared at her, seemingly out of sorts, for God knew how long.
“How did you come up with this idea?” Winston’s voice echoed the question in Parker’s and Curtis’s hearts.
Bai Qingqing randomly plucked a leaf and, with a brow raised, indicated for them to look.
The leaf was shivering as though it was suffering from convulsive seizures. And when the beastmen nearby let out a louder roar, it would even violently tremble.
“Solely based on this?” Parker said with an incredulous tone. He had always known that Bai Qingqing was intelligent, but how could she be this intelligent?
It was perfectly normal for tree leaves to vibrate, and no beastman had ever given this much thought. No beastman had ever thought of using sound vibration to make it rain.
“I was merely giving this a shot and wasn’t perfectly sure it would work either. Else, I wouldn’t have taken the superfluous action of getting everyone to roar in unison.” Perspiring from embarrassment, Bai Qingqing didn’t wish to dwell on this subject. She ran into the rain to wash her hair, leaving behind three beasts whose gazes followed her.
The cloud gradually covered half the skies, but the layer of cloud still appeared to be very thick. The beastmen, who now regarded this cloud as theirs, certainly refused to let it leave. In their anxiousness, they started screaming even more loudly.
Having rinsed her head, Bai Qingqing’s brain felt much more clearer. Curtis and the rest had caught up to her.
Winston said, “If this goes on, it won’t finish raining before the cloud drifts away. It’s not raining as heavily now as it did initially. Why don’t we start trying other methods?”
Bai Qingqing nodded in agreement and said, “This time there’s no need to stop after shouting once. Just do it according to your habits.”
The beast roars became uniform once again. The long and deep sounds rang continuously. The rain indeed became heavier, yet now it didn’t rain and stop, rain and stop, over and over again.
The land had long been soaked by the rainwater. Now that the riverbed was filled with water again, it slowly flowed downstream.
No idea if it was due to the movement in the clouds, the wind speed seemed to have declined as well, causing the cloud to float very slowly. But as they were still racing against time, the beastmen—who didn’t dare to rest—continued howling nonstop.
As the cloud passed by this terrain, it became so faint that sunlight could peek through it. Not wanting it to go to waste, the beastmen chased after it for a few steps and howled more forcefully at the skies.
Clearly, they weren’t letting any opportunity slip by.
With a smile, Bai Qingqing laid on the soil with rain pattering upon it, the rainwater moistening her curly eyelashes and blurring her vision.
“You’re wet.” It suddenly occurred to Curtis. Without much intimidation in his eyes as he cast a glance at her, he was prepared to lift her up.
Not afraid of him, she flashed him a smile and shook her head in a wheedling manner.
Her skin had been feeling so dry, and it felt awesome being in the rainwater. Moreover, the rain here was natural and unpolluted, so there didn’t exist any dangers of it being acidic.
