Chapter 740: Winston’s Ambition

“Can rocks really be burned into a sturdier matter?”
Winston looked at Bai Qingqing’s astonished expression and got a reply before she said anything. “It seems to be the case.”
Bai Qingqing licked her lips. She didn’t expect Winston to have such far vision and the spirit to probe into things.
Even if his attempt to refine metal failed this time around, with this spirit, it was very likely that he could become the hero to change the beast world’s current backward state.
At the thought of how she could be standing next to a great man, Bai Qingqing’s heart suddenly palpitated and she felt a little nervous.
“That’s right. My world is extremely reliant on metal. Metal is sturdier than rocks, and it’s extracted and refined from a type of ore.”
“Is your nail clipper made from metal?” Winston suddenly asked.
Bai Qingqing had many strange things with her. She herself might have neglected this, but to the beastmen who knew nothing about them, they were unforgettable.
Winston looked at her. Facing the fire, his eyes seemed to burn with scorching flames as well.
“I’ve been wondering what rock they are made from, but even after combing through all the rocky mountains, I have never discovered a similar rock.”
Bai Qingqing was given a fright, feeling as if all of her past was being dug up.
“En, the nail clipper is made from a type of stainless steel,” Bai Qingqing immediately replied, as if she was a student who had been posed a question by the teacher.
Winston’s face tensed up, and the scar that was illuminated into a red color by the fire twitched slightly, seeming to be wearing a faint smile. The contradicting combination made him look like a lunatic who had sunk into madness.
Bai Qingqing suddenly felt fear and couldn’t help but back off. Her shoulders were immediately grabbed by a big pair of hands.
“If we can use metal to make weapons and defensive tools, the village will become safer. You’ll be even safer!” Winston panted heavily, his gaze seeming to fill with madness as he looked at her.
When he saw his terrifying state through Bai Qingqing’s eyes, he immediately held himself back and let go of her, who seemed to be shocked.
“Did I scare you?” Winston’s expression instantly lost its viciousness as he anxiously asked.
Bai Qingqing looked at the familiar Winston and relaxed. She grabbed his hand and shook her head. “You’re my mate, of course, I wouldn’t be scared of you.”
Winston heaved a large sigh of relief as if a great burden had been taken off his chest.
Digesting his earlier words, Bai Qingqing felt extremely touched. “I know very little about refining metal. It’ll mostly depend on you to try things out. I only know how to use them.”
Winston smiled. “En, you’ve already helped me a lot.”
Bai Qingqing felt a little embarrassed to be praised just by providing a ready-made direction. She scratched her head and said, “I learned some things back in school. Go look for ore that contains metal traces and we’ll study them together.”
“I’ll join as well!”
Two voices ran gout at the same time.
Parker was sitting on the window since god-knows-when, his eyes gleaming with excitement to try things out. All the blood in his body was raring to erupt.
Males were all belligerent creatures and would always have a great yearning toward strengthening themselves. This yearning could even rank on the same level as their concern for females.
“How can you leave me out on such a challenging matter?” Parker jumped off from the window, but even the wind and snow couldn’t cool down his vigor that was like the blazing sun. He looked at Winston with a hint of challenge in his gaze.
“Winston, let’s start taking turns to look for the rock source from now on.”
Winston looked at him, his expression returning to calmness. “You stay at home. I’ll go out.”
“Why?” Parker said, displeased.
“Because I can command the tribesmen.” Winston tossed this line, instantly making Parker speechless.
