Chapter 1003: Unt.i.tled
The remaining males in the village put on their armor and started killing the enemies valiantly under the tree in which they were living, not daring to go too far away. They could only glare with their bloodshot eyes, watching the many scorpion beastmen searching through the village freely, flaunting their might.
The scorpion beastmen were everywhere. Muir ran quickly to a rock next to the waterhole, squatted down, and looked around warily.
Bluepool watched from the bottom of the water for quite a while before finally popping his head out from the center of the waterhole. He threw a questioning glance at the unfamiliar male.
Muir was stunned for a moment, then he immediately understood. He then seemed to let down his guard a little, releasing his wings and revealing a roll of animal skin.
It was hard to tell what that furry roll was, but Bluepool seemed to have sensed something. He let down his guard and swam toward Muir, looking around warily before asking in a soft voice, “This is Qingqing?”
“Curtis told me to come and look for you.” Muir nodded.
Bluepool immediately dove in the water. Muir’s outstretched hands paused, then he immediately covered the animal skin bundle tightly again with a furious gaze.
Was this merman unwilling to help? d.a.m.n it, he shouldn’t have let him leave earlier. He should have grabbed onto him first.
Thankfully, Bluepool emerged from the water again, raising a bubble with both hands.
Muir’s feelings went on a roller coaster ride, and he sent out the animal skin bundle once again. This time around, he kept his eyes on the merman. As long as the merman showed signs of entering the water, he would grab him immediately.
Bai Qingqing threw a few glances at Muir strangely, feeling that this guy was abnormal. However, he didn’t give it much thought. After placing Bai Qingqing into the bubble, he then entered the water together with the bubble.
Muir’s body uncontrollably inclined toward the water, wanting to go down together with her. He quickly drew back his reluctant gaze and left quietly, rus.h.i.+ng toward the stone castle.
Bai Qingqing felt her body falling fiercely and knew that she had entered the bubble. She held it in and waited for a while. After ascertaining that she had sunk down to the bottom of the water, she reached out from the roll of the blanket, moving around a little, before popping her head out.
Bluepool thought of the h.e.l.lish scene outside and felt curious. “Who on earth did you guys offended when you went out this time around? To think that they fought their way into the village. Were they the ones who called that insect tide here too?”
The mermen didn’t understand the forest and thought of the scorpion tribe as an insect tribe. If so, it wouldn’t be impossible for them to be able to get help from another insect tribe.
Bai Qingqing crawled out from the blanket. She had come out in a hurry and didn’t put on any underwear, either. Bai Qingqing sat at the bottom of the bubble, clamping her legs tightly together and draping the blanket over her and An’an.
The temperature at the bottom of the waterhole was very low. Bai Qingqing’s actions didn’t cause Bluepool to notice any abnormality.
“They are the scorpion beastmen who had caused An’an to be poisoned.” Bai Qingqing scowled fiercely and gritted her teeth.
Bluepool threw a glance at her. This was the first time he had seen Bai Qingqing in such a forlorn state. Her hair was drenched in sweat and was stuck on her fair face. She must have been feeling both scared and hot under the blankets earlier and was rendered into her current state from the stuffiness.
No matter how hard Bluepool thought about it, he wouldn’t have guessed that the reason Bai Qingqing was so “forlorn” wasn’t because of the insect plague.
Bluepool’s heart ached for her, pus.h.i.+ng her into his cave.
There was a luminous ball in the cave, and the dark world immediately lit up.
Bai Qingqing looked toward the light source. An’an also reached out her fair and plump, lotus root-like arms.
Bai Qingqing burst out laughing, a large part of her negative feelings dissipating with it. “An’an still remembers your luminous ball.”
Bluepool’s brows raised in surprise, and he looked toward that small meatball who looked so beautiful that it made one’s heart soften. Even though he was prepared to be blinded by her beauty, he was still astonished by how beautiful and exquisite the small meatball was once again.
