Chapter 1133: War Ended (2)
The gra.s.s pile shook and three leopard heads poked out. They didn’t come out, but instead, their bodies shrank further in.
Dying from anxiety, Bai Qingqing couldn’t even fly into a rage. She took a look around in the room, picked up the blanket on the bed, then walked over toward them.
“Then don’t come out!” Bai Qingqing covered the blanket onto the gra.s.s pile, closed in from the bottom, and wrapped up the leopard cubs together with the dried gra.s.s.
“Howl~” The cubs made stifled objecting sounds in the blanket.
The tremors were getting increasingly stronger, and even Bai Qingqing could feel the bottom of her feet turning numb. Then, a loud “rumble” rang out and Bai Qingqing was taken by great astonishment.
“The city gates have been broken through,” Muir said, lifting the cubs with one hand and taking Bai Qingqing’s hand with the other as he headed out quickly.
He was tall, had long legs, and was taking long and anxious strides. Bai Qingqing almost flew with him dragging her along with him.
When they reached outside, they could see the behemoths’ ma.s.sive figures.
Muir didn’t dare to delay any further. He immediately turned into his beast form, carried Bai Qingqing on his back, and used his claws to lock tightly onto the bundle of leopard cubs. He then flapped his battered wings and flew up.
The behemoths’ roars were deafening and made everyone feel exposed.
After flying into the sky, Bai Qingqing finally saw survivors. Several hundred eagle beastmen were circling over the tribe, carrying females on their backs. They had come up the instant they received the news. Bai Qingqing’s group was considered the latest.
The weather was still clear today, and even though the warm sunlight shone down on them, it couldn’t drive the darkness in their hearts away. They could only hope that the clear weather would quickly pa.s.s by, and the heavy rain would come and conceal their presence.
Bai Qingqing lay low and said to Muir, “Let’s go take a look at the battlefield.”
Feeling anxious with the others in danger, Bai Qingqing felt ill at ease. She checked her tattoos. Upon noticing that they were all present, she felt completely at ease.
“Screech—” Muir remained silent for a moment, but he still slowed and flew down.
A few eagle beastmen immediately let out warning cries toward him. How could he take such risks when he was carrying a female on his back?
Bai Qingqing turned and smiled at those kind-hearted eagle beastmen, indicating that she was fine.
Muir was above a beastman king, after all. Those eagle beastmen had only dared to offend him because they were too worried for her. Seeing that Bai Qingqing had no objections, they didn’t say anything more.
Muir nudged the hand that Bai Qingqing had unconsciously placed on his head as if a.s.suring her: I’ll definitely ensure your safety.
The behemoths’ collision caused ten-thousand-year ancient trees to fall every now and then. It was really dangerous to be flying in the forest in such chaos.
Muir stopped at a position that was neither too high nor too low. At this height, the behemoths wouldn’t be able to attack them. There were also no overly ma.s.sive tree crowns. When the big trees toppled, it would be easier for them to dodge.
There was a large number of galloping behemoths on the ground, their bodies died with blood and soil. They charged forward turbulently like the surging currents from a levee breach.
The remnant scent of living creatures left in the City of Beastmen caused them to stop temporarily. After not finding any living creatures, they then continued to charge forward.
One would have to take a closer look to be able to find one or two gleaming silver spots on the behemoths’ bodies.
“It’s Parker!” Bai Qingqing pointed to a bright spot and cried out in pleasant surprise. She then felt worried, becoming so nervous that her hands clenched tightly together.
The behemoths pa.s.sed through the tribe, and in just over ten minutes, all of them left. What followed was the beastmen’s ferocious roars.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t understand the beastmen’s languages, but she could sort of understand what they were saying. It was probably them driving the behemoths away and making threats.
Those behemoths were being chased off by them, so they didn’t lose the battle?
After seeing no behemoths even after a long time, Muir flew down. After placing the bundle of leopard cubs on the floor, he landed steadily.
