Chapter 369: The Honest Beastman Who Was Obsessed With Appearances
At least he’s honest. So it turns out Alva is obsessed with appearances.
Bai Qingqing had just changed her opinion of Alva slightly when she heard his loving voice again.
“But no one in this world is more beautiful than you are, so there isn’t a chance for me to fall for someone else. I will only love you and you alone in this lifetime.”
Bai Qingqing was speechless.
After rolling her eyes inwardly, she said coldly, “Let go of me. You’re hurting me.”
Alva couldn’t bear to let go of Bai Qingqing’s hand. She continued to pack her stuff, not because of him, but that she simply wished to finish packing her things so that when Parker and Curtis arrived, she could leave at any time.
She decided to propose to Muir that they leave and wait elsewhere when he came over the next day.
She could no longer tolerate this place.
Alva, who thought that he had infuriated Bai Qingqing, felt anxious but didn’t know what he could do.
The clear and loud screech of a peac.o.c.k sounded from the front. Alva perked up his ears and instantly transformed into his beast form before flying towards the source of the sound.
[What’s the matter?]
The peac.o.c.k who just flew back from outside halted mid-air and flapped his glamorous green wings. [That eagle beastman is here again. I’ll go and bring Bai Qingqing to see him.]
Alva kept quiet for a moment, before saying to his fellow peac.o.c.k beastman, [No need, just let that eagle beastman come in.]
[Ah? But he’s from another tribe.]
The peac.o.c.k asked doubtfully. When he caught Alva’s warning gaze, though, he instantly shut up and turned around to fly outside.
Shortly after, Muir stood in front of Bai Qingqing’s house.
Sensing the wooden house shaking, Bai Qingqing knew that someone was here. Thinking that it was Alva, she said irritably, “I said I never want to see you again.”
It was clear from her shaky voice that she had just cried.
With a violent tremble of her body, Bai Qingqing raised her head and looked outside.
Upon seeing the deep claw marks on Muir’s waist and abs, Bai Qingqing’s surprise turned into shock. She drew a gasp of cold air and asked, “How did you get injured? Did those eagle beastmen attack you?”
Muir’s face was pale, and his breathing unsteady. He cast a worried glance at Bai Qingqing, yet there was an unconcealable joy in his eyes.
“Mm,” Muir responded.
As Bai Qingqing held onto Muir, she suddenly felt his weight upon her, causing her to fall sitting on the ground. Thankfully, Muir had propped one hand underneath her right before she landed on the ground, so she didn’t feel any pain at all.
Alva, standing at the entrance of the wooden house, felt a tinge of jealousy when he saw them hugging.
He knew that it was overboard of him in the past, so he was terrified that Bai Qingqing would leave. In order to make her stay, he could only let this Muir enter their village. Hopefully, this would make Bai Qingqing stay on with a peace of mind.
“Sorry, I bled quite a lot, so I didn’t manage to steady myself earlier,” Muir said apologetically as he carefully peered at Bai Qingqing’s countenance.
“How did you get this severely injured?” Bai Qingqing reached out to touch his injuries. That wet and sticky sensation startled her so much that she retracted her hand immediately, tears falling down her cheeks helplessly.
“It’s all my fault.” She hugged him. At the thought of how there was no news of Curtis, her uneasiness rose once again, making her hold Muir even more tightly.
“Please don’t die. Don’t ever run into them again.”
As his physical pain entered his bones, Muir couldn’t feel any of it. He hugged her back tightly. “I’m fine. I’ll be well again soon. That group of eagle beastmen has been taken care of.”
Bai Qingqing paused in surprise. “They’ve been taken care of? You killed them all?”
“Something like that,” Muir replied vaguely. As he spoke, he looked towards Bai Qingqing’s left leg, instantly feeling as though he was struck by lightning, his body trembling violently.
This is impossible!
