Chapter 1475: The Terrifying Sighting of Three Ferocious Beasts
After Bai Qingqing and Zhang Xin got into the car, a few policemen protected them while the others entered the mountains with the trained police dogs.
Shortly after, they carried a few corpses out.
Facing the police, Bai Qingqing felt extremely sheepish, and her body refused to heed her commands. She could only try her best to minimize her existence in their presence.
Her hand resting on the seat was suddenly covered by a warm palm, causing Bai Qingqing to let out a yelp and retract her hand as though it had been electrocuted.
Zhang Xin’s hand froze mid-air momentarily. He then retracted it and smiled helplessly. “Nearly forgot that you have a boyfriend. But your hand feels so cold. Are you really alright?”
Bai Qingqing shook her head. “I’m fine.”
“Don’t be scared. I’ll go out and take a look.” Zhang Xin then opened the door.
Bai Qingqing wanted to stop him, but after opening her mouth, she held herself back. Bearing with the discomfort, she also got out.
The corpses were b.l.o.o.d.y all over. Some had two large holes on the chest, while others seemed to have been hacked by a blunt object. Their bodies were nearly severed in half. All had died horrible deaths.
After taking a glance, Bai Qingqing ran to the roadside and started vomiting.
When she got up again, her face was completely pale and she was extremely feeble.
Hearing rustling sounds from the plants, Bai Qingqing looked in that direction and, to her shock, saw Winston’s head.
“Why are you still here?” Bai Qingqing mouthed the words.
Winston bared his teeth. Bai Qingqing looked around and indeed saw that Curtis and Muir were also around. One was hiding on a tree crown, while the other was perched on a thick branch.
“These people seem to have died from being struck by a blunt object and tremendous force. From the way their flesh was ripped, we can see that the murderer is extremely strong. The wounds have turned black, which is a sign of poisoning. Can’t rule out the possibility of an attack by wild animals. We’ll be able to find out after going back and conducting an autopsy,” a police officer said to the police chief.
The police chief frowned deeply. “These are the triad heads in our city!”
“Isn’t it better that they’re dead?” Zhang Xin said casually. He was immediately glared at by the police chief, who said sternly, “Bring the kid to the car!”
Zhang Xin glanced at Bai Qingqing and said, “Daddy, Bai Qingqing isn’t feeling well. Can we go back first?”
“Mm, you should go back quickly.” As the police chief spoke, he indicated for the policemen to bring the corpses into the cars.
Zhang Xin hurriedly went to call Bai Qingqing. He ran two steps towards her, and before he could speak to her, he exclaimed in fright, “Daddy!”
Everyone’s attention was attracted by his exclamation, and they looked towards the forest following his gaze.
“A tiger!” someone shouted.
Suspecting it was the tiger who had bitten those people to death, the police chief decisively fired at it.
The other policemen also whipped out their guns.
“Don’t!” Bai Qingqing got up right away.
Winston instantly dodged and cast a final worried glance at her, before running into the depths of the forest.
The policemen were relentless. However, just then, they heard a series of unnatural sounds. When they turned their heads, they shockingly saw a gigantic snake.
Next, there was the flapping of wings. Since G.o.d-knows-when, a giant eagle had also appeared in the vicinity, and this eagle had been ‘frightened’ into flying away by the gunshot sounds too.
Fl.u.s.tered, the policemen fired shot after shot, and only stopped after the wild animals had vanished from sight. Badly shaken, they gathered together and looked at each other.
“We can be 80% sure that these people were killed by wild animals.” The police chief looked at Bai Qingqing and sighed with emotion. “Young lady, you’re really lucky that we came. Otherwise, you would probably also die at the mouths of those beasts.”
Bai Qingqing let out an embarra.s.sed chuckle. “Thank you, Uncle Policeman.”
“But why didn’t the wild animals eat the humans after biting them to death?” Zhang Xin suddenly raised this question, looking at her with a hint of probing in his eyes.
