Chapter 262: The Only Spiritual Leader

Seeing Rosa in such a manner, Bai Qingqing suddenly didn’t hate her that much anymore. Rosa was just an arrow without much accuracy.

Bai Qingqing looked at the ape king and suddenly felt that he was like a clown, ugly and comical. “You should be disappointed.”

The ape king was still wearing a furious expression, but his attention had been drawn away by Bai Qingqing. This female had always given him a bad feeling as if she was able to see through everything.

As expected, those from the same tribe were the hardest to deal with. He wondered which village she came from.

“The one who feels the most disappointed that Rosa wasn’t able to kill me isn’t her, but you.” Bai Qingqing continued, throwing a glance toward Rosa’s mouth. She shuddered. “You’re really brutal.”

The ape king’s countenance immediately turned pale, and his eyes moved around quickly like machinery that had been worn down too much. “You’re mistaken. I do feel very guilty that you’ve been a.s.saulted. My castle has failed to give you due protection. The upas tree is what I had prepared to use to fend off against beast tides and to attack other tribes. Rosa must have found out about the upas tree’s poison from Bart and gotten someone to steal the sap. I plucked off her tongue so that she won’t continue to incite other males to commit wrongdoings.”

The more the ape king said, the more sense he seemed to make. He even appeared a little angry. “Your guess is too far-fetched. Why would I want to kill you?”

“If I were to die, there’d be two less four-striped beastmen in the City of Beastmen—the tiger king and Curtis. You’ll be one step closer toward your ambition of taking over the City of Beastmen.” Bai Qingqing’s brows raised slightly. “Am I right? Ape king?”

The ape king was badly shaken and couldn’t help but back off one step.

Bai Qingqing said, “If I’m not mistaken, your next target should be the leopard king. Winston is wary against you and isn’t that easy to deal with. You’re anxious to isolate him.”

The pretense on the ape king’s face was gradually taken off, and the muscles at the corners of his eyes twitched uncontrollably as his expression became savage.

Curtis looked toward the ape king, his gaze as if he was looking at a dead creature. He started to gather strength in his tail.

The wolf king immediately tossed Rosa to his subordinates and stood in front of the ape king, bellowing loudly, “Protect the ape king!”

All the wolf beastmen gathered around the ape king.

Bai Qingqing turned and looked toward Curtis, shaking her head. However, it was clear from Curtis’s gaze that he was unwilling.

Bai Qingqing could only say, “Shuu refused to reveal the ape king’s name even till his death. This was despite the ape king’s partic.i.p.ation in this matter. After thinking about it, I finally understood.”

“Hahaha…” The ape king laughed out maniacally, saying conceitedly, “You’re smart. If you want to kill me, then you must be prepared to go up against the entire City of Beastmen!”

Curtis smiled as he stared at the ape king with an ice-cold gaze. “So what?”

The smile on the ape king’s face froze up a little.

Bai Qingqing shook her head and looked toward the ape king, saying, “The City of Beastmen needs a spiritual leader. It’ll be the time of your death when there’s a replacement.”

“With the likes of you, a single female? Hahaha…” The ape king seemed as if he had heard a great joke. “What can a female who doesn’t even have any mental power do? Females should just stay at home and give birth to children. The reason you guys can live a peaceful life is all thanks to my arrangements.”

Bai Qingqing smiled, a dangerous feeling creeping up on her pale face. “Let me see what you’ve done for the City of Beastmen. You better pray that the City of Beastmen’s citizens will respect and support you forever.”

After saying that, Bai Qingqing turned to head out. “Let’s go home.”

Curtis stood there on the spot, not moving. Bai Qingqing tugged at his hand, saying tiredly, “Let’s go.”

Curtis pursed his lips and was about to turn when he saw the black eagle in the sky. He suddenly pushed his body up, pouncing toward the black eagle.

“Screech!” Muir quickly flapped his wings and flew higher, narrowly escaping the snake’s bite, but leaving behind several black feathers in the sky.

The light feathers fluttered around under the hot steaming air, not landing for very long…
