Chapter 1385: Confiscating a.s.sets

Bai Qingqing already guessed what was inside. This bag was even more puffed up than Parker’s. Opening it up, she saw that it was a mixture of transparent and green crystals.

“Eh?” Bai Qingqing looked at Winston, then turned to Parker and asked, “Why aren’t there transparent crystals in your bag?”

Parker explained with a vexed expression, “Because I wanted to level up as quickly as possible. So, every time I obtained one I would eat it immediately. In moments of feebleness, it replenishes energy and keeps me awake. Or else, I might have suffered severe injuries and died many times over.”

Bai Qingqing said, “Alright, I’m not blaming you. Winston, why didn’t you eat the transparent crystals? Gosh, why were you so frugal when you were risking your life out there?”

Winston swept a glance over the bag at Parker’s waist, surprised that it was filled entirely with green crystals, several times more than the ones he brought. He felt vexed for having worried over nothing, holding up precious time that he could have spent preparing presents for Qingqing.

“Couldn’t be bothered to eat,” Winston replied simply. How could he care about the threats of a weak physique and carnivorous animals when he almost lost the courage to live on?

Somehow, Bai Qingqing sensed his thoughts, and her heart ached for him. She shook Winston’s hand which she was holding and said in a relaxed tone, “It’s all over now. Let’s count how many crystals there are.”

“Are there behemoths here?” Curtis suddenly asked. Snake beastmen had always been aloof and lazy, and wouldn’t move a bone in their bodies unless absolutely necessary. At most, they would carry one transparent crystal on them to save their lives in crucial moments. Now that they were in a different world, looking at the large quant.i.ties of energy that Winston and Parker had brought with them, he suddenly felt a sense of crisis.

Bai Qingqing shrugged. “Yeah. But they’re reduced to bones that have been buried for G.o.d knows how long.”

Curtis furrowed his brows tightly, and Muir’s expression didn’t look that good either.

Bai Qingqing’s hand, which was in the midst of counting the transparent and green crystals, instantly halted. It suddenly occurred to her that this priceless treasure would be a ticking bomb in the family.

The most dangerous character was none other than Curtis. It was highly possible that he would literally kill for the treasures! Besides, it didn’t help that Parker often acted in a way that made people want to punch him in the face. He was totally a live target in Curtis’s eyes.

“Parker!” Bai Qingqing suddenly looked up. Her gaze swept over his face and then fell upon the bag at his waist. “I want your crystals. Give them all to me.”

“Sure.” Parker removed the bag without hesitation and handed it to her. He said with a grin, “These were saved for you, anyway.”

Bai Qingqing felt touched. At the same time, she felt guilty for her scheming. She cast a complicated glance at Parker, before taking the bag from him.

“Okay, they’re all mine now.”

Bai Qingqing placed the bag among Winston’s pile of crystals, then said to him with a beam, “You’re going to give yours to me too, right?”

“Of course.” Winston felt that by making her happy, these gifts would have realized their greatest value.

Bai Qingqing lowered her head and started counting the crystals. She thought that she was going about it in a stealthy manner, but unbeknownst to her, all four males knew very well what she was thinking.

Parker might be an easily jealous male, but he wasn’t a petty one. He was actually okay with sharing his crystals with the other males that Bai Qingqing liked. Moreover, looking at Qingqing’s cautious manner, he couldn’t bear to object to it.

Used to the role of a giver, Winston felt even more attached to Bai Qingqing now. But if he could be with her forever, even if it meant shortening his lifespan, he had no fear whatsoever.

As for the freeloading Curtis and Muir, they naturally wouldn’t turn down these fruits of labor soaked in blood and sweat, for they were necessary for them to accompany their spouse for a long time.

Having obtained benefits for nothing, Curtis felt gloomy and thought to himself to be more tolerant towards Parker in the future.
