Chapter 323: Fleeing in Defeat
Jean looked toward Bai Qingqing once again. Bai Qingqing had no idea if it was just her delusion, but she felt that the female opposite her seemed to have raised her chest a little more, and her att.i.tude had become arrogant.
This was a common occurrence when a female felt pressure from the compet.i.tion, but Bai Qingqing was used to not standing out and thus didn’t know about this. She didn’t understand that Jean was trying to compete against her.
“I’m the ape king’s mate. The ape king did something wrong to you, and he has realized his mistake now. Can you forgive him?” Jean spoke with an arrogant att.i.tude, yet her words were that of showing weakness.
Bai Qingqing smiled. “If he can bring Shuu back to life, then I’ll forgive him.”
“You’re asking for the impossible.”
Bai Qingqing felt that this person was really sharp. She recalled what Winston said about how this female would still have to continue living in the City of Beastmen and thus didn’t wish to make their relations.h.i.+p too bad. She pursed her lips and didn’t say anything.
It was Curtis’s voice.
Bai Qingqing quickly walked toward him. When she pa.s.sed by Jean, the latter suddenly reached out her hand.
“What are you doing?” Winston immediately dashed up, grabbing tightly onto Jean’s skinny wrist.
Jean cried out in pain, “You’re hurting me.”
Bai Qingqing also turned back to look at Jean.
“I only saw a strand of hair on your shoulder and wanted to remove it for you.” Jean’s face wrinkled up, wearing an expression as if she was tolerating immense pain. She was holding onto a strand of dark-brown long hair in her hand.
Bai Qingqing knew how strong males were and quickly said to Winston, “Quickly let go of her.”
Winston threw a doubtful gaze toward Jean before letting her go. Jean grabbed onto her wrist that had turned red, her heart sinking.
d.a.m.n. It was another rough guy. There wasn’t any point in having a male like him. Since when was she short of males?
Just then, Curtis entered the main hall, waving his tail.
Suddenly, Jean felt as if she was being stared by a wild beast. All the blood in her body froze up. If she had hair on her body, all of it would definitely stand up.
Jean looked up and her body stiffened up even more. She was dumbfounded.
G.o.d, it was him!
Curtis threw a casual glance toward Jean before grabbing Bai Qingqing’s hand and pulling her to his side.
“You’re still not leaving?”
Curtis didn’t look up, but Jean knew that he was talking to her. Her body felt as if it had been instantly defrosted. She grabbed onto the blue chiffon in her hand and turned to leave, appearing as if she was fleeing in defeat.
Bai Qingqing looked at Jean’s back view. After she left, Bai Qingqing muttered, “She’s really scared of you.”
“Weren’t you asking how female merfolk look like?” Curtis said indifferently. “She’s one.”
Bai Qingqing’s eyes were wide-open.
If Jean was a legendary mermaid, then she’d be a little disillusioned.
Although Jean was beautiful, she wasn’t breathtakingly so. At the very least, any male in the City of Beastmen wouldn’t lose out to her. If Curtis was a woman, he’d be more beautiful than her.
She wondered how the merfolk tribe’s males looked like. When the females were already so beautiful, then their males should be even better looking!
“So you know her. Why didn’t you choose her as your mate?” Bai Qingqing asked, itching for some gossip, but feeling a little nervous as well. Seeing how scared Jean was of Curtis, it couldn’t have been that he had bullied her before, right?
Curtis’s eyes spewed sparks of fury. “I don’t like her.”
Bai Qingqing closed her eyes sulkily. She had absolute trust in Curtis and didn’t care to lie.
He didn’t like Jean, but liked her? Bai Qingqing couldn’t hold back the joy in her heart and her face flushed up a little.
Curtis threw a glance at Bai Qingqing amidst his fury, and the anger in his heart gradually calmed down.
