Chapter 1001: Unt.i.tled
That was true. The forest was a shared living environment, and no one would think of destroying it. However, they neglected the fact that the scorpion beastmen came from the desert. Why would they heartache over someone else’s living resources?
Saint Zachary stood at the village’s entrance, covered by densely-packed armored gra.s.shoppers, and wasn’t discovered by the beastmen.
With a casual opening and closing of his pincers, he’d kill an armored gra.s.shopper. He stuffed one into his pitch-black sh.e.l.l-shaped mouth and chewed on it a few times before swallowing it.
This was the only entrance into the village. Given his strength, he naturally didn’t fear those weak poisonous plants underground. However, the army behind him had to pa.s.s through as well.
Pitch-black scorpion beastmen stood amidst the densely-packed black dots. Their colors were the same, and it was hard to discern them.
Even the friction sounds were hard to discern. However, this was only for the other species. The scorpion tribe would be able to.
After Saint Zachary gave the order, they gushed toward the city gate together with the swarm of insects.
“The scorpion beastmen are here! Everyone, get to battle!” A voice rang out, followed by a beast howl.
It was too late. There were only a few beastmen on guard at the gates, and they only managed to call a few hundred helpers. Besides, as the other beastmen other than the ones on guard weren’t wearing their armor, they were very apprehensive toward the scorpion beastmen and were unable to fend them off together with the insect swarm.
The army of scorpion beastmen pa.s.sed through the wooden plank placed over the water with an unstoppable vigor, breaking through the defense line easily.
All sorts of beast howls rang out in the village, calling more helpers. However, most of the beastmen were out hunting for prey, including Parker and Winston. They were unaware of the change that was taking place in the village at all.
The army of scorpion beastmen raised their tails high, gus.h.i.+ng into the village like seething river water.
Bai Qingqing suddenly felt her body lighten, and she looked at Curtis with her half-opened eyes glistening with clear dissatisfaction.
Curtis’s breathing halted. However, he didn’t satisfy her. Instead, he turned to look outside and said, “I’ll go out and take a look.”
“What is it? Why do you have to go out now?”
Bai Qingqing’s voice was hoa.r.s.e, filled with traces of having been overly loved. Her arms circled around Curtis’s waist weakly, causing his breathing to pause again.
Curtis was really defeated by his mate. He looked at Bai Qingqing, feeling helpless, but with a gaze filled with adoration.
With Curtis’s pauses, Bai Qingqing’s body woke up and her mind cleared up as well. Suddenly, her countenance changed slightly. “Could this be the work of the scorpion tribe?”
Curtis was taken by surprise. He only sensed that the tremors on the ground weren’t right. The crawling sounds were very strange, unlike what the beastmen in the village would make. He had suspected that the scorpion beastmen had managed to come in but didn’t expect that Bai Qingqing would link up the scorpion beastmen with the insect plague together.
However, once this doubt came up, the more he thought about it, the more he felt that it was possible.
Curtis’s chest was immediately filled with fury. Beastmen cared for the environment, so the scorpion beastmen’s actions had incurred everyone’s wrath. If there were villages nearby, they’d also attack the scorpion beastmen without any reason. Even if just the rumor was spread, the scorpion beastmen wouldn’t be able to make a stand in the forest anymore.
“We can’t continue,” Curtis said apologetically.
Of course, Bai Qingqing wouldn’t object. She pushed him and got him to get up and move away.
