Chapter 455: Small Cave in the Forest (3)
Bluepool’s hands transformed into claws, and he bared his fangs, ready to go into battle. Parker noticed their intentions and agilely broke away from the battle, let out a roar, and quickly rushed for the cave.
Bai Qingqing stayed at the deepest part of the cave, looking at Bluepool in his human form and standing by the cave’s entrance. She felt so nervous that she held her breath.
A few shadows flashed outside, and Bluepool’s figure instantly blurred. With a “bang,” a beast figure that had pounced over changed direction and flew outside.
Merfolk lived in the sea. They were used to moving in the underwater resistance. And when they were in the air, the speed at which they swung their claws was many times faster than when they were in the sea. Their strength was greater as well.
When the three beasts came pouncing over, Bluepool targeted the wolf beastman on the very left, clawing at his neck. The wolf beastman flew out, and a stream of blood shot out from his neck. He didn’t get back up again.
However, merfolk were unable to move agilely on the land. At the next instant, the bear beastman slapped him. Bluepool tried to block with his other hand but was sent flying like a kite. He smashed heavily against the rock walls and then fell to the ground.
“Bluepool!” Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but take a step forward.
The wolf beastman was faster. Bluepool’s body had just landed when the wolf beastman dashed up to him, baring its mouth and wanting to bite him.
“No!” Bai Qingqing threw the children to the side and charged over.
The female’s voice caused the wolf beastman to become stunned, and he really stopped.
A trickle of blood flowed out from the corners of Bluepool’s lips, but no hint of fear could be seen in his blue eyes. Instead, they were filled with killing intent.
His legs had changed into a fishtail, and while the wolf beastman had let down his guard, he swung his tail and sent it flying out.
Their claws were just sharp weapons. The mermen’s greatest weapon was their tails. Their tail’s fins were sharp as blades, cutting several blood wounds onto the wolf’s body.
Parker also came charging over. He pounced onto the bear beastman’s back, then bit his neck.
Bears had thick skin. After he was bitten, he swung his head fiercely, loosening the leopard’s grip a little.
The tiger and fox beastmen came following after Parker. Not successfully being killed from that attack, Parker immediately moved away, dodging the lethal attacks coming from behind. He quickly ran up to Bai Qingqing and turned to confront the beastmen outside.
Out of the five beastmen, one was dead and another suffered from light injuries. The four beastmen walked over in a row, blocking the cave’s entrance.
The situation was very disadvantageous to Parker’s side. Moreover, they had a female and children to take care of.
After the four beastmen had a clear look at Bai Qingqing’s appearance, their eyes gleamed in astonishment, followed by unconcealed greed. They then pounced over together.
“Ahhh!” Bai Qingqing screamed and backed off to the deepest corner of the cave, gulping and kicking the cubs to get them to stay behind her.
A fight broke out in the cave, with ferocious roars ringing out incessantly.
No matter how agile Parker was, he wasn’t able to display it well in such a narrow s.p.a.ce. The wolf and fox beastmen blocked all paths.
Bluepool was up against the bear and the tiger beastmen and was instantly defeated, sent flying by the bear’s paw again. Then, the tiger beastman quickly pounced toward him.
“Don’t kill him!” Bai Qingqing ran over without thinking. She was closer to Bluepool and managed to pounce onto him before the tiger beastman did.
Bai Qingqing wasn’t that n.o.ble to sacrifice her life to save another. It was just that she didn’t believe that they’d kill her, a female.
As expected, the tiger didn’t bite her.
He paused. He had witnessed the scene in which the wolf beastman had been attacked and thus didn’t let down his guard. He bit down on Bai Qingqing’s arm and pulled her to the side.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t help but scream out under the terror and pressure. Her arm was being bitten by a big warm mouth, and she could feel its sharp teeth. She felt pain. It seemed that her skin had been sc.r.a.ped.
Parker instantly lost his cool and was bitten at the waist, caught unaware.
