Chapter 104: Finished Off a Rival in Love
Holding back the urge to wallop that bear, Parker walked up behind Bai Qingqing and said, “Qingqing, we have honey in the house too. I’ll roast it for you at noon. Don’t take his food.”
Cortis, however, took a more direct approach. With a sweep of his tail, a shadow flashed by in the skies and in an instant, the bear at the door was gone.
“Bang—” The sound of something heavy cras.h.i.+ng on the ground was heard from afar, followed by the bear’s agonizing cry. “Growl!”
“Cortis!” Bai Qingqing quickly turned around but discovered that Cortis was no longer in the house.
The bear was sent flying out and had just landed on the ground when Cortis appeared next to him. Towering over the bear, his gaze was cold and dark, his red lips saying equally cold words. “If there’s a next time, I’ll kill you.”
Despite being big and burly, the brown bear slightly trembled from under Cortis’s stare.
Tony wailed in his heart.
Homeless beasts are so scary! How can such a cold fellow stay by the side of such an adorable female? The female will surely be scared to death by him!
Bai Qingqing ran out and, pulling Cortis’s arm, said, “Why are you beating others up?” She then looked towards the brown bear, her slightly downturned eyes looking extremely apologetic. “I’m so sorry. Are you alright?”
Tears rapidly welled up in the bear’s eyes.
The female is showing concern for me. I was defeated yet she still cares for me. So sweet. I like her even more now. What do I do!
He was about to speak to Bai Qingqing, when suddenly, he sensed the snake beastman’s murderous stare, causing him to quiver and his words to get stuck in his throat.
Cortis lifted Bai Qingqing horizontally, then, shaking his tail, slithered into the house.
Having escaped the death stare, Tony’s body turned limp as he laid on the ground.
Sob sob… This female was so adorable, but he didn’t have the guts to pursue her anymore.
The males’ lives were very cheap—it was common for males to die while vying for females. Hence, if one wished to pursue a female, he had to first make sure he had the capability to protect himself. That was, unless the female liked you very much, such that her other males dared not lay a finger on you.
But this snake beastman could kill him with one strike. The despaired Tony only wanted to eat his honey-barbecued meat to console himself now.
Tony the bear opened his mouth and swallowed the barbecued meat he was holding in one mouthful.
Bai Qingqing felt very bad towards the bear as Cortis had beaten him up because of her. Yet, she knew that she couldn’t express that. The males here were too possessive. Her concern would only make matters worse.
Making the bear beastman go away like this was perhaps the best ending.
Bai Qingqing didn’t want to talk to Cortis, so she said nothing since entering the house. Cortis also had a cold expression on his face as he sorted out the firewood in the house quietly.
Parker, on the other hand, was very happy. He walked to Cortis and said, “Good job.”
Bai Qingqing glared at Parker.
Suddenly, the howls and growls of various beasts—including tigers, wolves, and eagles—could be heard outside the village.
Parker threw down the firewood and said excitedly, “They’re back!”
“What’s back?” Bai Qingqing asked.
Parker circled an arm around Bai Qingqing and excitedly dashed outside. “Come with me.”
Cortis halted in his actions, then followed them out.
The residents of the City of Beastmen were equally excited. All of them had rushed to the city center. In the skies, several black eagles were also flying towards the city center.
Bai Qingqing raised her head and gazed at the eagles in the skies.
The beastmen are all out. Moore will be out too, won’t he? I wonder which one is him.
As if sensing her gaze upon him, a black eagle suddenly turned his head and looked below. His sharp eyes met Bai Qingqing’s. They stared at each other for a moment, before the black eagle continued flying ahead.
Bai Qingqing had no idea if that eagle was Moore. Very quickly, she was distracted by a group of beastmen entering the city.
