Chapter 154: Winston Defected
Parker let out a low growl and dug his claws into the ground. As it was a puddle of water under his front paw, his claws were now filthy and full of wet mud.
Rosa cast a glance at the black eagle and was about to look away when she realized something that made her widen her eyes.
Rosa’s countenance looked extremely terrible. She roared. “Hurry up and attack!”
“Roar!” On that command, the tiger beastmen rushed up in unison.
Rosa’s expression was contorted. This was the third one. Bai Qingqing had s.n.a.t.c.hed three males away from her. She had chosen this three-striped beastman out of the more than ten eagle beastmen of suitable age, as he was the strongest one among them. She used to wonder why this eagle beastman was lukewarm towards her. So it turned out he was bewitched by Bai Qingqing.
Bai Qingqing, you and I are sworn-enemies!
Upon hearing the tiger beastmen’s movements, Winston turned around vigorously. Unlike his usual restrained demeanor, he now exuded the wild and arrogant aura of a powerful beastman.
The white tiger opened its mouth and let out a deafening roar of anger. The sound made by the tiger beastmen earlier sounded like the meowing of a cat in comparison.
Scared out of their wits, the tigers repeatedly retreated, caught in a fl.u.s.ter all of a sudden.
Bai Qingqing paused in surprise.
Isn’t Winston Rosa’s mate? Why is he defecting?
Rosa was caught by surprise too. When she snapped out of her shock, she was consumed by an uncontrollable rage. “Winston! Didn’t you say you didn’t want to become mates and only wished to be my guardian?” She then sneered. “There’s no use in you helping her. Why don’t you look at your reflection in the water? How can Bai Qingqing possibly fancy you?”
Winston’s silver eyes shrunk violently. He turned around and looked at Bai Qingqing, who was staring at him in a dazed manner. The eyes of the human and beast met.
Gazing at those clear and innocent eyes, Winston instantly became clear-headed.
[I’m not planning to become mates, and I’m also willing to be your guardian. But more importantly, I will protect my beloved female.] Winston blocked before Bai Qingqing like a steady rock, growling the tiger’s language in his deep voice. [When you clash with her, I will forever stand on her side.]
Rosa’s expression changed and she said fiercely, “Don’t let me see you appear in the tiger tribe again!” She glared viciously at Bai Qingqing, before kicking the tiger beneath her. “Let’s go.”
Although Rosa’s att.i.tude was aggressive, her mates appeared sad and pathetic.
Rosa, who was spoiled since she was young, had never suffered such humiliation in her entire life. This was all caused by the new female, Bai Qingqing. She swore she wouldn’t let Bai Qingqing lead an easy life from now on.
Looking as the enemies left, Curtis’s body lurched forward, feeling pity that he had lost his prey. With the soft, warm, and pet.i.te hand in his hand, Curtis’ desire to kill faded. He lifted her up.
“Are you cold?” He asked as he glanced at her feet.
Bai Qingqing shook her head.
Now that the fight was over, the black eagle quietly flew high up into the skies.
Winston gazed at the back views of Rosa’s group as they left. Although his body was still strong, it somehow exuded sadness.
“Winston.” Bai Qingqing called out to him softly. Winston turned around to look at her and responded with a roar.
His voice was much deeper than Parker’s. Even in that one-syllable word, one could sense his might.
Bai Qingqing said, “Rosa forbade you from returning to the tiger tribe. Will you be in trouble? Will the ape king use this opportunity to harm you?”
Winston’s upper body lowered, before straightening and transforming into a human. With a crop of white, short hair and coupled with the hideous scar on his face, he looked like a prisoner.
“The ape king’s strongest a.s.sistant—the wolf king—is only a four-striped beastman. Based on his capabilities, he’s not able to kill me. Don’t worry,” Winston said in his deep voice.
