Chapter 239: Let Things Go Just Like This?
Rosa jumped off her mate’s back and ran up to the tiger king, saying, “Father, they ate my children! You must take revenge for my children!”
Female children were precious treasures in a family before they had their own families. The tiger king was Rosa’s father, and his adoration for her was second only to that of his mate.
Seeing Rosa crying so pitifully, the tiger king was overwhelmed with fury. However, seeing that his opponent was also a four-striped beastman, he was agitated but didn’t charge forth. He looked toward the ape king for help.
The ape king frowned, looked at Bai Qingqing, and asked, “Did you guys really kill young children?”
Bai Qingqing lowered her head guiltily, not daring to reply.
Curtis narrowed his eyes and looked toward the ape king, looking to be at so much at ease that it felt really brutal. “You guys are talking about rules with a homeless beast?”
Everyone was rendered speechless.
Rosa sobbed and said to the ape king, “Ape king, it’s all Bai Qingqing’s fault… If you sell Bai Qingqing away, then our City of Beastmen won’t be threatened by a homeless beast anymore. Otherwise, who knows how many more young children will be eaten up!”
Curtis let out a stifled laugh, using his snake tail to push Parker and Bai Qingqing into the house. His glance brushed past the ape, wolf, and tiger kings. “If you want a fight, then come.”
Several low growls rang out concurrently. The tiger king transformed into his beast form and emerged from the group of beasts at the first instant, the wolf king hesitated, the leopard king watched quietly to see how things would unfold, and the ape king didn’t budge.
On Bai Qingqing’s side, Winston stood next to Curtis without any hesitation, wearing a vicious expression on his tiger face. Even his scar was twitching.
With two four-striped beastmen against one, the tiger king realized that he was at a disadvantage. He immediately withdrew his battle stance and looked toward the ape king as he turned into his human form, asking, “What are you waiting for?”
The ape king fell silent for quite a while before suddenly saying, “What Curtis says makes sense.”
A commotion broke out amongst all the beastmen.
“Curtis isn’t a citizen of the City of Beastmen, and this place is Bai Qingqing’s residence, as well as his territory. Of course, they don’t have to abide by our rules.” As the ape king said this, the wolf king no longer had any hesitation and just stood there calmly. The same went for the leopard king.
“What did you say?” Rosa looked at the ape king in disbelief, her voice so sharp that her pitch had changed. “They ate my children. Are we going to let things go just like this?”
“Keep an eye on your children, don’t enter other people’s territory for no reason.” The ape king sounded very helpless, but his voice had a hint of heartlessness in it.
Rosa shook her head and backed off a few steps, stumbling and seeming as if she was going to fall. Her mate supported her from the back.
The tiger king threw a helpless glance at Rosa and said, “Let’s go back.”
Large drops of tears trickled down from Rosa’s eyes, and she threw a malicious gaze toward Bai Qingqing, who was standing by the door. She said viciously in a soft voice, “I won’t let you off!”
Rosa’s mate picked up Bart’s corpse and the group of beastmen left in bitter defeat.
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. Seeing that the leopard king was about to leave, she quickly called out to him, “Leopard king, wait!”
The leopard king turned and looked at Bai Qingqing.
“Thank you for coming, but how did you know about this matter?” Bai Qingqing took two steps forward before realizing that her legs had turned into jelly. She had no choice but to grab onto Parker’s arm.
The leopard king was naturally pleased to see Bai Qingqing being intimate toward Parker. He raised his head and looked up toward the sky.
Bai Qingqing followed the leopard king’s gaze and saw a black shadow dart by quickly. It let off a long screech and then disappeared into the dark night.
The leopard king nodded, leading his few trusted beastmen aides away.
Bai Qingqing looked up at the sky for a while before saying in uncertainty, “Is it that eagle beastman who protected me from the sky the other time? Is it Muir?”
“Who cares?” Parker immediately drew back her attention. “Let’s go in. It’s cold outside.”
