Chapter 1060: Unt.i.tled
Mitch.e.l.l was born a rootless beast without any emotions, but his judgment for beauty was normal. Facing such a beautiful pair of eyes, he was first taken by astonishment. Then, he felt a warmth in his chest and his heart palpitated intensely.
There it was again, that strange erratic heartbeat that made him both shocked and infatuated.
“I won’t leave.” Mitch.e.l.l a.s.sured. “But if this continues, your body won’t be able to stand it. I’ll be back very quickly. It won’t take long.”
Bai Qingqing was very satisfied by his reaction. She let go and then nodded docilely.
“Be quick, then.” Female voices were very soft, just like their soft and tender hands that could easily calm one’s anxiety, bringing forth ripples to one’s emotionless feelings.
Mitch.e.l.l smiled and left in a good mood.
As the footsteps got further away, the smile on Bai Qingqing’s face turned faint. She wrapped her hands around her legs and buried her face into her knees, crying silently.
Parker, Winston, where are you guys? What are you doing? Don’t act recklessly.
Bai Qingqing wouldn’t have expected that the two guys she was so worried about were very close to her.
Parker and Winston silently traced behind them to the earth fissure’s opening and even saw Mitch.e.l.l, who had come up to collect firewood.
Fire spewed out from Parker’s eyes, and he wanted to go down and battle him immediately. However, Winston quickly grabbed the hair on the back of his neck.
After Mitch.e.l.l was done picking firewood and went back, Winston said, “It won’t help things to kill him. It’d even alarm Saint Zachary. We’d be exposed, then.”
Parker swung his fur that was messed up by Winston’s grip, turning into his human form as well as he said while frowning, “Didn’t you say that you’ve covered up the earth fissure well? Why was it still discovered?”
Winston’s brows furrowed tightly. He pointed to the earth fissure that was covered by a rock and said, “I didn’t expect this to happen, either. I was the one to place these rocks there. Just in case, I even got the eagle beastmen to occasionally come by to check when they are out patrolling. They didn’t notice any abnormality. I didn’t expect that they had drilled a small hole in the rocks and fooled us all.”
“Aren’t they scared of water?” Parker was quick-thinking and soon had an idea. He said viciously, “Let’s move the rocks away and let the rain go in. We’ll move the pipes over as well and drown them to their deaths!”
“But Qingqing…” Winston was worried.
Parker then said, “Qingqing is good with water.”
However, he didn’t insist. The earth fissure was so deep, and he was also afraid that Qingqing wouldn’t be able to swim up to the surface. It’d be worse if the scorpion beastmen insisted on having her dying alongside them.
After thinking for very long and being unable to come up with any other idea, Winston said in a deep voice, “Let’s prepare it first. You’re fast. Go back and bring the things over. I’ll keep an eye over here.”
“Alright!” Parker immediately turned into a leopard and jumped amongst the branches agilely, quickly disappearing from sight.
The sky turned dark very quickly, and the pitch-black forest was filled with the sound of wind and rain, having a hint of melancholy.
It was extremely noisy outside but very quiet in the earth fissure, where only the crackling sound from the firewood could be heard.
Bai Qingqing leaned by Mitch.e.l.l’s side, getting warmth from the fire, occasionally asking him about the time, but she still couldn’t hold back and fell asleep.
It was to be expected. She had played around crazily for half the day and didn’t have her afternoon nap, either. It’d be strange if she wasn’t tired after night fell.
Saint Zachary walked over to the fire and looked at the female leaning against his son, and a hint of displeasure flashed in his eyes.
“Father.” Mitch.e.l.l felt a hint of fear as he sensed hostility coming from his father. He immediately wanted to push Bai Qingqing away.
Saint Zachary gestured for him to be quiet and said softly, “She needs to sleep to sense Chris’s soul. Don’t wake her up.”
Mitch.e.l.l’s body shook. Stiffening, he pursed his lips and didn’t dare to move.
