Chapter 438: Take Responsibility for Me
Bluepool locked onto Bai Qingqing’s shoulder tightly and anxiously asked, “Where is she? I’ll go look for her right away.”
“I don’t know. She should be coming to the sea herself.” Bai Qingqing said the truth and looked at Bluepool with a pleading gaze. “Can you send me up?”
Hearing that, Bluepool suddenly calmed down and let go of her.
Bai Qingqing’s heart sank. Bluepool’s words were like a pail of iced water, drenching her heart cold.
When Bluepool saw her like that, his heart ached, and he softened his tone.
“I have to ascertain that what you said is true first. What if you lie to me again?”
A hint of hope rose once again in Bai Qingqing’s heart, and she said anxiously, “There’s no more time. Jean and I formed a feud on the land. If she knows that I’m here, there’s no way that she’d let me off.”
Bluepool looked at her, not saying a word.
“If you wish for me to live, then you’ll have to send me up immediately. She might be arriving at any moment.”
Bai Qingqing licked her lips and looked outside.
“Can you do that? If you can’t, I won’t make things difficult for you, either.”
This was what made Bai Qingqing the most unsettled. There were so many mermen outside, and she wasn’t sure if Bluepool would be able to bring her out.
“If I’m a little careful, it shouldn’t be a problem,” Bluepool said.
Bai Qingqing was overjoyed. “Then, we’ll leave right away?”
“I don’t fully believe you yet.”
He turned away, not daring to look at her. He was really scared that he would become softhearted and act on impulse after being looked at by her pair of clear eyes.
“Then, what must I do before you can believe me?” Bai Qingqing was about to cry.
“Give me some benefits.”
Bai Qingqing immediately said, “What is it?”
Bluepool said, “I’ll bring you to a place that is near the shores to hide. If what you say isn’t true, then you’ll mate with me after coming back. If what you say is true… if I were to let you go, Jean wouldn’t accept me, either. You’ll have to take responsibility for me.”
Bai Qingqing thought about this quickly and nodded decisively. “Alright!”
She’d just look for a wife for Bluepool, then. He didn’t say that it had to be her, anyway.
She hoped that he wouldn’t mind. Although the females on land weren’t as beautiful as Jean, at least they had fewer mates.
Things were decided just like that.
Bluepool blew a bubble that was just big enough to contain Bai Qingqing and got her to enter.
“You won’t be easily discovered with a smaller bubble. Breath lighter, the oxygen inside isn’t a lot. If you feel uncomfortable, tell me. I’ll change the air for you, then.” Bluepool instructed.
“I’ve got it. Let’s go, quickly.”
Bai Qingqing finally left the cage.
After Parker went back up to the shore, he didn’t just wait. He entrusted the cubs to the peacock and then ran to the forest in search of the ape king and Jean.
If possible, he wished to take care of them on the shore.
It was like how Bai Qingqing had threatened the safety of the City of Beastmen’s females, and thus was hunted down by all the beastmen from the City of Beastmen. Right now, Jean was a threat to Bai Qingqing, so Parker developed an unwavering killing intent toward her.
With the help from the peacock village, Parker managed to find the two of them easily.
“How long more do we have to go?” A soft female voice rang out in the forest, sounding so pleasant that it was like the sound of a kingfisher.
Jean was feeling bored as she leaned on the ape king’s back, holding onto a dogstail grass, and brushing it against the plants they passed by.
“We’ll be reaching soon. I can sense the smell of the ocean.”
The ape king said. He excelled in climbing, but in order to carry Jean on his back, he could only run on the land. This slowed him down by a lot, causing them to spend two months before arriving at this place.
Parker hid amongst the branches and leaves of a big tree in front of them and slowed his breathing as if he had become a part of the tree.
