Chapter 456: Small Cave in the Forest (4)
Parker’s reaction was fast as well. He dodged the wolf beastman’s bite and tried as much as possible to reduce the areas he was bitten. He then dashed up to the tiger beastman.
The battle came to a pause, and the panting from several beastmen rang out in the cave. There was also the weak breathing of a female.
The leopard cubs were ignorant and thus didn’t feel terrified. They walked up to her and cried out, asking for a hug.
Bai Qingqing’s arm was still in the tiger’s mouth. She bore the pain and said, “Don’t you guys just want females? I’ll behave and go along with you. I beg you not to kill them!”
Bai Qingqing had no idea if it was her delusion, but after saying this, she felt that the four beastmen’s gaze didn’t seem right. All of them kept their gaze on her. It was indescribable.
But one thing for sure was that this was a good sign. They might just agree to it.
“Coo coo coo—” A peac.o.c.k’s cry rang out from outside, and the light in the cave instantly turned dim.
The few beastmen looked outside, and a huge snake appeared in front of them.
With his back against the light, they could only see a pair of crimson red eyes that looked as if they were dyed in blood, exuding an ominous aura of the momentary silence before death.
“Ssss—” The snake beastman flicked out his tongue, and the ominous feeling grew even more intense.
The tiger beastman’s group immediately felt a cold chill running down their spine. They couldn’t see the other party’s animal stripes, and this made them feet a lot more unsettled.
Tears rolled down Bai Qingqing’s eyes, and she looked toward the snake beastman for help. “Curtis…”
The tiger beastman let go of her, exchanged a few glances with his comrades, and then all of them attacked the snake beastman at the same time.
The battle broke out very quickly, but there was no doubt about the outcome. It ended with the four beastmen’s death.
Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to look over. She had fallen to the ground the moment the tiger beastman let go of her. She hugged the cubs, having her back to the outside. Her face was tear-stricken, and she wasn’t able to calm down even after a very long time had pa.s.sed.
Parker walked over, squatted down next to her, picked up her injured arm, and licked it gently. Two pairs of b.l.o.o.d.y holes were punctured there, one big and the other small.
“Ss—” Bai Qingqing gasped. “It hurts.”
She then saw that the wound at Parker’s waist was even deeper, and she couldn’t put on a weak front anymore. She pushed him and said, “Go take care of your injuries first.”
“I’m a male. This little injury doesn’t matter. Your injury is what’s important.” Parker looked like he was going to cry as he carefully held onto her arm. “My G.o.d, you won’t die, right?”
Bai Qingqing didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “Show yourself some care.”
When Curtis took care of the corpses and entered the cave, he threw a cold glance toward the peac.o.c.k. Alva immediately flapped his wings and fled, half flying, half running.
Curtis walked over, picked up her arm, and took a look. His brows furrowed tightly together. “What happened?”
“We had no idea, either. Those beastmen suddenly came charging over.” Bai Qingqing recalled the dangerous situation from earlier, still apprehensive.
Parker threw a glance outside and stood up. “I’ll go take a look at how the female is.”
“Yes, go quickly.” Bai Qingqing then asked Curtis, “Didn’t you see a female?”
“I didn’t pay attention,” Curtis said.
Bai Qingqing was speechless. “Uhh…” She shouldn’t have asked.
She then asked Bluepool about his injuries. He didn’t suffer from many external wounds, but there were a few large patches of blue and black bruises on his body, and he had spat out a few mouthfuls of blood. His internal organs must have been damaged.
The female’s sharp scream rang out from outside, and Bai Qingqing looked outside, alarmed. It turned out that Parker had carried the female back. She felt relieved.
As Parker got closer, Bai Qingqing’s eyes opened wide. Her curled lashes were moistened by tears, and her gaze looked like that of a frightened doe.
