Chapter 1063: Unt.i.tled
That was true. He was already dead, so what else could he not let go of?
Moreover, they had only been protecting themselves all along and hadn’t done anything overboard. The ape king only dealt with them under Jean’s instructions. The reason he died was only that he was less skillful in comparison. He shouldn’t still harbor hatred toward them even after his death.
If that was the case, the reason the ape king was doing this could be because he wanted to help Jean. If he knew that Jean was dead, he probably wouldn’t want to waste energy on this, either.
At this thought, Bai Qingqing smiled wretchedly.
The ape king felt the chills when he saw her smile. He finally couldn’t hold it in anymore and asked, “What are you smiling at?”
“I’m smiling at something funny.” To prevent being implicated by the ape king’s fury, Bai Qingqing leaned closer to Mitch.e.l.l’s side, grabbing onto his arm.
The ape king didn’t have a high battle prowess when he was alive. Now that he was dead, he was definitely not a match for the four-striped Mitch.e.l.l.
The ape king’s intangible body distorted a little, showing his displeasure. It shot out a sharp gaze, staring straight at Bai Qingqing. He had a feeling that she was mocking Jean.
Did something happen to Jean? Did Bai Qingqing’s mates end up killing her, after all? Weren’t those mermen very strong? Why didn’t they escape far into the ocean?
That’s right. Jean was very headstrong, so she’d definitely want to seek revenge. She probably continued to look for trouble for Bai Qingqing thereafter.
The ape king came to a conclusion, and his intangible figure swayed again. “You guys killed her?”
Bai Qingqing shook her head. Just as a hint of hope appeared in the ape king’s eyes, she then crushed it brutally. “We didn’t kill her, but it’s true that she’s dead.”
The ape king’s feelings fluctuated, and in an instant, his intangible figure stiffened in the air.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but sigh in her heart when she recalled Jean: Drama.
“You wouldn’t be able to guess who was the one who killed her. It’s the mate whom she had left behind ten years ago, the merman King.”
The ape king was in disbelief, but upon thinking about it, it did make sense.
Mermen were also cold-blooded creatures who were aloof by nature. That merman called King was colder than the snake beastman Curtis. He had always felt that this guy was very strange, but he hadn’t expected that King had always been harboring hatred in his heart.
That was true. He had been abandoned by his mate for ten years. It was normal for him to feel hatred.
There was no need for any evidence. The ape king immediately trusted Bai Qingqing’s words. After feeling astonished, he didn’t even feel surprised thereafter.
Bai Qingqing’s feelings also sank when facing life and death. She said calmly, “Curtis found her corpse in a stone cave in the water. King had eaten up her body, leaving only her beautiful hair. He then plucked off his head and committed suicide.”
It didn’t matter that Jean had died, but her mates were too pitiful.
King was such an outstanding male, but he ended up in such a sorry plight. The one whom Jean had harmed the deepest was definitely not Bai Qingqing. It was definitely her mates.
King and the ape king were just two of them. There was also a large group of mermen behind them.
The ape king fell silent for a moment, then disappeared in the air. It was as if he had never appeared before.
Bai Qingqing knew that he was unable to accept Jean’s ending and had returned to the crystal to lick his wounds. She secretly felt exhilarated about this. She had managed to remove a hurdle.
“Pa pa pa.”
Mitch.e.l.l clapped and said in admiration, “You’re the one who kills without seeing blood. It’s much more domineering than our venom. But if I were him, I wouldn’t believe it.”
Bai Qingqing smiled faintly and said, “I only said the truth. The ape king understood his mate, and this is a very natural ending. Why wouldn’t he believe it?”
Mitch.e.l.l fell silent for a moment as well, not expecting that this was actually the truth. He had thought that Bai Qingqing had been quick-witted and came up with this story to lie to the ape king.
How horrible must the female be to be treated by her mate like this?
Born a rootless beast, Mitch.e.l.l was completely stunned. How much hatred must one feel to eat his mate? No, maybe it was out of love. Otherwise, wouldn’t it be better to vent his hatred feeding her to lowly beasts?
