Chapter 1122: Licked the Hornets’ Nest (1)
The battle jet in the sky dashed downward, drawing an arch in the sky.
In the densely packed forest, a pair of eyes gleaming with red light appeared in Muir’s eyes. Muir was taken by surprise: So fast!
He suddenly changed direction and did a 90-degree glide in midair, das.h.i.+ng toward a huge light purple-colored tree crown.
“Ah!” Bai Qingqing screamed.
Bai Qingqing and the leopard cubs cried out loudly, their screams accompanying the eagle beastman’s figure as they pa.s.sed through the flowers.
Upon entering the tree crown, the air they breathed immediately became fragrant and made one infatuated.
Bai Qingqing’s heart was still palpitating, and she stroked Third’s chest in amus.e.m.e.nt. Gosh, was this kid’s heart beating a war drum? The frequency and force took her by surprise.
“Child?” Bai Qingqing felt worried and turned Third’s head toward her to check.
“Howl!” Third’s breathing was very anxious, his eyes gleaming. He was clearly very excited.
Bai Qingqing felt a.s.sured and let go of his head.
Eldest and Second had already jumped onto the branches from the eagle claws. They hopped around agilely amongst the densely packed branches, sniffing here and chewing there.
There was an entire stretch of flowers above them amidst the greens. Just from the look of it, it was clear how bright and beautiful the flowers were.
Bai Qingqing looked up in antic.i.p.ation, placing Muir’s rag-like animal skin skirt on her shoulder, attempting to climb up.
“Let’s go up.”
“Alright,” replied a male voice holding a hint of joy in it.
Bai Qingqing paused to an unnoticeable extent and her gaze turned toward the animal skin on her arm.
Muir’s skirt was here. Then, with him changing into his human form…
Densely-packed sounds of flapping wings suddenly rang out amidst the tree crown. Bai Qingqing looked toward the source of the sound and saw Third standing right next to a beehive the size of a wall. He kept on licking non-stop as if he had discovered that the beehive was a delicacy.
Beehives had varying color shades. The older ones’ colors were dark and muted like soil. Newly constructed beehives were bright colored like platinum. With this hive being so big, one would be able to smell the sweetness of honey from far away.
That was right. With there being such a big sea of flowers, how could there possibly be no bees?
Third had one paw stepping on the hive and shook out several tens of bees. These bees were many times bigger than the ones Bai Qingqing knew and were the size of quail eggs. Their mouths were sharp and pointed. They flew onto Third’s nose, and he immediately let out an agonizing howl.
Third was startled and scratched his nose frantically, his fat and round body occasionally knocking against the hive and shaking out even more bees.
Bai Qingqing was speechless and shouted out loudly, “Child, come back quickly.”
“Howl!” Third seemed to have found someone to rely on and anxiously ran toward his mommy. Although he was anxious, he continued to step steadily on the branches without any risk of falling off, clearly having a clear grasp of moving on trees.
This was an unfamiliar concept that Bai Qingqing had learned from Parker. It was an important apt.i.tude that concerned leopard beastmen’s survivability. Seeing how agile Third was, Bai Qingqing felt consoled.
However, the bees clearly held grudges. All of them were mobilized and they came out from the hive in groups. The buzzing sound became increasingly dense, becoming so noisy that one’s ears turned numb.
Bai Qingqing’s countenance changed and she looked pleadingly toward Muir. “Let’s run.”
“Alright.” No species should be underestimated, even weak bees. In groups, their attacking prowess wasn’t to be underestimated.
While Muir transformed, Third was already surrounded by bees.
