Chapter 1053: Unt.i.tled
A pitch-black huge scorpion figure appeared in the rain. The beastman on guard rubbed his eyes in disbelief, then immediately let out a warning roar.
This roar could be used to scare the opponent, while also informing their own people.
As it was the heavy rainy season, most of the beastmen were at home. When they heard the tiger roar coming from the city gate, they immediately ran out to render a.s.sistance.
Ordinary beastmen were no match for Saint Zachary, who was a stripeless beast. They’d just be courting death. Very soon, the beastmen’s warning cries turned into cries for help.
Many emotion-filled sounds rang throughout the village, and Bai Qingqing woke up for some reason. When she opened her eyes, all the fatigue in her eyes was gone.
“Parker, did something happen?” anxiously asked Bai Qingqing as she saw the leopard squatting on the window and looking outside.
Parker jumped off the window and turned into his human form, looking anxious as he said, “A scorpion beastman barged into the City of Beastmen by himself. It must be Saint Zachary! He must have been pushed too hard.”
Even a weakling would fight back if pushed too far, let alone the scorpion beastman, who wasn’t someone easy to deal with. Given how strong he was coming on them, he was probably prepared to fight it out to the bitter death.
At this thought, Bai Qingqing’s face turned pale. She looked around, picked up An’an, and shoved her to Parker. “Quickly send An’an to Bluepool.”
She then beckoned to the three leopard cubs in the corner, feeling uneasy, gesturing for them to come over.
An’an was playing by herself and was stunned for a moment when she was suddenly picked up.
“You and An’an should both hide inside,” Parker said anxiously.
Bai Qingqing shook her head with an anxious expression, but her gaze had never looked so determined before.
“I’ll stand alongside the rest of you. Saint Zachary won’t give up until he catches me. He’ll only ma.s.sacre the innocent. An’an and the leopard cubs are still young. They shouldn’t suffer with us. Hide them with Bluepool. They’ll definitely be able to live on.”
Parker’s body shook, his eyes emitting strong feelings of pity and a hint of anger as he said, “You’re a female. How can you face such a dangerous situation together with us? Qingqing, knock it off. Go to the waterhole and hide. We’ll go and pick you guys up in a while.”
After saying that, he quickly went to get animal skin, preparing to let her bring it down the waterhole to fend off the cold. However, Bai Qingqing grabbed his arm.
She smiled. The more dangerous the situation, the more composed she noticed she was. Unknowingly, she was no longer the young lady from the past. She had children and had the strength of a mother.
Bai Qingqing smiled and said, “So what if I’m a female? We’re all equal lives. There are no distinctions of who is n.o.bler or who is more lowly. You guys can die for me, but I’m just accompanying you. In comparison, what I’m contributing is too little. If you guys die, I wouldn’t want to live even if I survive the ordeal.”
Parker’s golden eyes turned a little moist. He felt extremely touched.
Why be scared of death when he had a female like this in this lifetime?
He pulled Bai Qingqing fiercely into his embrace, feeling so happy that he felt like laughing loudly.
She wasn’t wrong. If they were all dead and there was no one else in the City of Beastmen to protect her, what awaited her would still be death.
Why not… just let him be selfish for once and keep Qingqing by his side.
“Alright, we’ll go with what you said.” Parker rubbed his chin against the top of her head for a little, then quickly pushed her away. “I’ll be going. Wait for me to come back!”
“En!” Bai Qingqing nodded vigorously. Watching as he carried the children and dashed out, she also left the house quickly. Then, she almost knocked into a black eagle covered in rainwater.
