Chapter 663: Chaos
Up there, Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. She was about to ask Curtis to come up when his coiled body around a tree branch shook.
The tree branch snapped, and Curtis collapsed into a pile on the ground.
Immediately after falling down, he raised his head to look at her.
Bai Qingqing blinked, seeing something that resembled a look of defeat in his snake eyes.
Were her eyes playing tricks on her?
Curtis shook his body and joined in the battleground to slay the floating beasts.
Hadn’t he said that he would leave the tribe to settle the minor problems so the males in the village could toughen up? Curtis ultimately was too embarrassed to stand by and do nothing, huh?
Bai Qingqing pursed her lips and smiled.
“Why do these floating beasts look like they’ve gone crazy?” With his brows tightly furrowed, Parker patted Bai Qingqing’s shoulder reassuringly. “Don’t be scared, we’re here to protect you.”
Bai Qingqing shook her head and said with ease, “I’m not scared.”
The leopard cubs came running over and squirmed into their mommy’s bed. Parker merely cast a glance at them and didn’t tell them off.
Winston said, “I’m going down to kill the floating beasts now. You stay here and protect Qingqing and the cubs.”
“Okay,” Parker said.
They were, after all, a family. In the face of danger, the males would temporarily set aside their differences and fight the enemy together.
The torrential rain could no longer mask the intense odor of blood in the air.
Bang! Bai Qingqing watched as the tree opposite theirs collapsed to the ground with a resounding crash.
That was Becky’s home.
Roar! The tiger beastman standing next to the tree let out an enraged roar, which ended up attracting the attention of the floating beast that knocked his home down. Suddenly, it was one versus three, instead of one versus two.
Bai Qingqing nervously gazed around for the tree hole and saw the tiny heads of a few baby tigers sticking out from a tree hole as they charged towards the tiger beastman battling those floating beasts.
Bai Qingqing’s heart clenched, and she nearly let out a scream. She shoved at Parker next to her. “Quickly go and help them. Becky has only one partner, she won’t be able to cope.”
Parker was a little hesitant. Regardless of how dangerous the situation was for others, he couldn’t rescue them at the risk of endangering his own mate’s safety.
Thankfully, Winston noticed what was going on over there and went over to help. The danger was resolved in no time.
Though the floating beasts were being killed off one by one, the sounds of giant trees crashing to the ground repeatedly rang in the vicinity, making it clear that the beastmen weren’t at an absolute advantage.
The roars of tigers reverberated throughout the tree hole. From the particularly deep voice, Bai Qingqing could tell that it belonged to Winston.
“What’s the matter?” she asked as she walked to the passageway in the lower level.
“Can you let Becky hide in our house for the time being?” Winston raised his head and asked her from below.
“Of course,” Bai Qingqing replied without hesitation.
Only then did Winston send Becky up. However, the latter started screaming and struggling, her head turned towards the entrance of the tree hole.
“I think she doesn’t wish to be apart from Ford. How about you let him in as well?” suggested Bai Qingqing.
Parker instantly voiced his objection. “How can we let a male come in?”
“What situation are we in now!” Bai Qingqing said anxiously. Realizing that she sounded a little harsh, she tried her best to soften her tone as she said, “Let him stay in the bottom level and not come up. Will this do? What’s more, don’t forget that this used to be Becky’s home in the past.”
Parker reluctantly agreed, and Winston then let Ford enter.
Becky cast a glance at Bai Qingqing, before pouncing into the embrace of her male.
“I’ll let you take care of the situation under the tree,” Winston said to Ford with a cold countenance.
Ford responded gratefully.
Winston arranged for his men to guard the rivers in the first instance. After battling for half a day, the beastmen finally finished off the floating beasts who invaded the village. They could finally rest.
