Bluepool thought it was weird that the lighting in the water suddenly became dim. The suddenness of it made him freeze for a moment, after which he turned his focus to the lighting in the water.

To his surprise, the brightness didn’t return after it dimmed. Clearly, just a moment ago, three moons were illuminating the water from up above. It didn’t seem like the weather suddenly changed.

He rushed up to the water surface and realized that there was an additional layer of something on top and that the lighting outside remained very bright.

The ecstatic Molly quickly ran out from behind the rock. “Bluepool! You really came out! Bai Qingqing’s method was indeed effective.”

“Did Bai Qingqing do this? Just so that the two of us can meet?”

Bluepool’s face instantly turned terrifyingly dark, even darker than the oil-covered water.

Molly s.h.i.+vered involuntarily, feeling suddenly cold. However, as a female who had never experienced any danger, she neglected this biological instinct warning her to avoid the peril before her.

Gazing at the surroundings which were enveloped by the night scenery, Molly pouted in a coquettish manner. “Yeah. I waited for a long time, just so that I can see you. Thank G.o.d you’re out. I didn’t wait in vain.”

Ripples formed on the water surface as Bluepool swam to the edge.

With her head lowered, the blus.h.i.+ng Molly’s heart beat like a drum.

He’s swimming over! Has he finally been touched by my efforts?

The jittery Molly finally summoned the courage to raise her head. Before she could see the handsome face of the merman though, she was forcefully pulled into the water.

Bai Qingqing, who had been hiding behind a tree, got momentarily confused. She anxiously ran out and looked around. “Where have they disappeared to?”

“Ssss—” Curtis flicked out his tongue and said, “Trouble.” Then, he slithered towards the waterhole.

Bai Qingqing followed closely behind. Parker had jumped out as well and was jogging to catch up to her.

The snake glided into the water, and very quickly, a limp female was hauled up. Following that, a blue merman was yanked out of the water with a snake tail coiled around him.

Curtis usually couldn’t be bothered with other people’s affairs. But since they were the ones who brought Bluepool here, if the latter killed a resident female, they couldn’t absolve themselves of the blame either. That was why he had no choice but to step in.

“Molly!” The shocked Bai Qingqing ran to Molly’s side and squatted down, gently slapping her face to wake her up.

Molly was gripping onto weeds, and there was a strangulation mark on her neck. The strangle also resulted in her not inhaling the water into her lungs, so, after several coughs, she regained consciousness.

“Bai Qingqing…” The instant Molly woke up, she burst into tears. She crawled to her feet and hid behind Bai Qingqing, where she stared at the fish and snake in the water.

Bai Qingqing heaved a big sigh of relief and looked towards the waterhole as well.

How did things turn out this way? Bluepool actually wanted to kill Molly? Thank G.o.d she didn’t go far, else things would have gotten out of hand.

Curtis’s snake tail tightened with every breath Bluepool took. Redness had crept onto the latter’s face as he struggled with all his might.

Bai Qingqing hurriedly urged, “Let go of him, Curtis.”

Curtis turned his head and looked at her, before tossing the merman on the sh.o.r.e.


Bluepool landed with a loud thud.

With his hands propped against the ground, Bluepool’s chest heaved up and down.

Under the moonlight, a dark glow in his blue eyes exuding a hint of strangeness could be seen when he looked up at her.

Bai Qingqing, who was caught unguarded as she met his eyes, felt a chill run down her spine.

She made a huge mistake this time.

“Ssss—” Curtis seemed to have detected something, for there was a murderous intent in his voice.

Bluepool instantly retracted his gaze and said with his head lowered, “I’ll choose my female myself. Don’t force me.”

“Sorry…” Bai Qingqing felt extremely remorseful. She grabbed Molly’s hands and apologized to her too. “Sorry to you as well.”

Molly sobbed, before withdrawing her hands and running off.

Curtis cast a doubtful glance at Bluepool, then slithered to Bai Qingqing’s side. “Let’s go back.”

Bai Qingqing pumped herself up and said, “Wait. There’s oil in the water. I’ll remove it first.”
