Chapter 263: Snake and Leopard’s Lethal Conflict

“Your Majesty?” The wolf king looked worriedly toward the ape king.

The ape king said, “It’s alright. Bring the transparent crystal taken from the tiger castle to me.”

“That’s the tiger tribe’s wealth. They must be handed to the new tiger king after he succeeded the throne.”

“Give them to me!” The ape king wore a sullen expression and looked at the wolf king.

The wolf king lowered his head. “Yes.”

Bai Qingqing and the others left the ape castle. It was crowded with people outside, being even livelier than in the castle. On a careful look, all of them were tiger beastmen.

“What are they doing?” Bai Qingqing threw a glance at Winston.

Winston said, “Competing. The old tiger king has died, and the tiger tribe is about to choose their new tiger king.”

Bai Qingqing realized what was going on and asked, “Aren’t you going? You’re the strongest one in the tiger tribe.”

You’re the strongest one in the tiger tribe…

Winston’s heart palpitated. He lowered his head and took a look at Bai Qingqing, before transforming into his tiger form, releasing a fierce roar, and then charging into the group of tigers.

Bai Qingqing watched for a while and could only hear Winston’s strong roar. She thought, Winston is sure to take the position of the tiger king.

After returning home, Bai Qingqing felt exhausted. She lay on Parker’s nest, not even wanting to move a single finger.

After everything had quietened down, Shuu’s dying scene appeared in her mind. Feeling anguished, Bai Qingqing buried her face into the soft fur. She felt that she would never be able to forget that scene.

The hisses from the young snakes came ringing out from under the nest, and things were wriggling under the animal skin. Bai Qingqing moved her body and let them slither out.


The young snakes crawled out of the nest and 19 snakeheads gathered around Bai Qingqing, flicking their tongues.

Bai Qingqing turned and looked at them, rubbing her moistened eyes. “Why are you guys sleeping under the cus.h.i.+oning? Oh my, we haven’t fed you guys today.”

Curtis brought in the egg basket and said to them without any emotion, “Come and eat.”

Bai Qingqing looked at Curtis, surprised by his generosity. Although the young snakes liked to eat bird eggs, Curtis said that steamed eggs couldn’t provide sufficient energy and it wasn’t appropriate for them to eat often. She had no idea if this was true, but all the eggs that she couldn’t finish were taken care of by Curtis.

To think that he was so generous today to take out a whole basket of eggs for the young snakes? Was it raining bird eggs from the sky?

Seeming as if he had heard what Bai Qingqing was thinking, Curtis explained, “I don’t wish to leave your side. Just let them have the eggs.”

He really couldn’t feel a.s.sured to leave Bai Qingqing somewhere he couldn’t see her. Snow’s mates were considered to be too few in the City of Beastmen. However, it was already the limits of his tolerance to let Parker stay.

Every young snake had two eggs. Their bodies weren’t as thick as the eggs, but after swallowing the eggs, their bodies didn’t seem to change at all. Looking as if they hadn’t eaten anything, they all lay in the nest, digesting their food.

Parker heated up water and brought it in using the stone basin. “Qingqing, wash up. I’ll go prepare dinner.”

“No need. I have no appet.i.te. You can go out and hunt.” Bai Qingqing got up weakly. If it wasn’t because Parker had heated up the water, she didn’t even feel like was.h.i.+ng up.

“How can that do?” Parker glared at her, then walked over to the wooden chest to get clean clothes for her.

Bai Qingqing took off her clothes while saying, “Just roast your own food. I’ll take some of yours.”

It was still very cold, but the cold was not worth mentioning when compared to the pain in her heart. Bai Qingqing seemed to be torturing herself as she took off all her clothes.

Curtis’s gaze was fixed on Bai Qingqing’s chest, and his pupils contracted rapidly, forming into a blood-colored vertical slit.

Bai Qingqing seemed to sense something and lowered her head to look toward her chest. She gasped when she saw the image of the arrogant leopard there.

This was bad!

“Parker, run!”

Parker had put down the clothes and was about to head out when he heard Bai Qingqing’s words. He got onto his guard and turned to look at Curtis.
