Chapter 1070: Escaping Successfully (1)
Bai Qingqing backed off a few steps, glaring at the guy who was shaking as he stood up. She was so nervous that she didn’t dare to make a sound.
The guy’s body seemed as if it was weighted down by lead, so he was getting up with great difficulty. He sensed Bai Qingqing’s gaze and threw a glance at her.
Bai Qingqing took another step back. “You…”
“It’s me.” The corner of the guy’s lips curled up slightly, and he finally stood up straight. “Shuu.”
Bai Qingqing heaved a loud sigh of relief, then quickly grabbed one of his arms. She couldn’t suppress her smile, and the elation in her heart turned into these words that turned out like a sigh. “That’s great.”
This time around, it seemed exceptionally strenuous for Shuu to control Mitch.e.l.l’s body. He kept on paying attention to the external environment. After finding out about Bai Qingqing’s situation and plan, he took some time to get used to his body, then bent over and said, “Get up.”
After saying that, Shuu turned Mitch.e.l.l’s body into a pitch-black scorpion.
Bai Qingqing shuddered when she saw this. She only summoned her courage and got on because she knew that Shuu was the one in control. She took a while before finding a location to grab onto.
The rock walls were very steep, and there were many parts where there wasn’t any place to grab onto. Only the scorpions’ claws could pierce through the rocky surface and climb up. However, Shuu wasn’t a scorpion beastman. It was good enough that he could transform. When he tried to bring Bai Qingqing to the top, she could only grab onto him by herself.
Bai Qingqing’s arms had to hold all of her weight. Furthermore, she was burning up, and her head was heavy and aching. However, she knew that there was no one to help her. She could only think of herself as a lifeless matter, locking her arms tightly and not moving.
This path wasn’t long, but it seemed endless to Bai Qingqing. Every second was agonizing.
Her strength was about to deplete, and when the scorpion took another big move to climb, her strength weakened just a little and her body immediately plunged like a haversack.
She felt a pain in her b.u.t.t. A branch-like scorpion leg caught her. Her heart palpitated strongly and she said “thank you” softly, then grabbed onto the scorpion’s body once again. After escaping death once, all of her potential was stimulated and her strength increased.
The scorpion beastman paused for quite a while. Just as Bai Qingqing wanted to urge him on, he suddenly continued climbing, his body moving steadily and rapidly.
Bai Qingqing found this a little strange, but this feeling disappeared in an instant.
A cooling wind blew onto her face together with a hint of rain. Although it was cold, it wasn’t as chilly as it had been in the earth fissure. It made her feel invigorated.
Bai Qingqing opened her eyes, and, when she looked up, she saw a silver moon through the earth fissure’s entrance. Her lips curled up into a faint smile.
Finally, the scorpion and human exited from the earth fissure.
Parker, Winston, and Muir were constantly on guard outside. They had even set up a simple shack on the tree, but it wasn’t for them to live in. It was to put some clothing and cooked food.
Their three pairs of eyes instantly opened wide when they saw Bai Qingqing, and they ran over at their fastest speed.
Bai Qingqing relaxed and fell limp on the scorpion’s back. Even when the cold rainwater landed on her body, it didn’t wake her up at all.
Parker, the fastest to rush over, pulled Bai Qingqing up and hugged her tightly. He lost control and let out a howl, his voice filled with suppressed agitation and elation after having lost her.
Bai Qingqing almost fainted, but she woke up in alarm by his voice. She forced herself to get her act together and looked around. “Don’t make any sound. Saint Zachary…”
Bai Qingqing threw a glance toward the earth fissure’s entrance.
Her words successfully stopped Parker’s howl. Winston also held back his desire to call his mate.
