Chapter 514: Scorpion Tribe’s Invasion (1)
The trees’ shadows kept on swaying in the cold wind, and acc.u.mulated snow would drop down occasionally. Bai Qingqing tugged Parker’s hand and said, “It must be the wind.”
However, Parker didn’t let down his guard. He told Bai Qingqing to stay where she was while he continued to head toward the snow pile, creating soft “squeak, squeak” sounds as he stepped on the snow.
Bai Qingqing became nervous as well, bending over to carry the three leopard cubs who had become listless because of hunger.
Before she straightened her back, she heard the sound of snow falling off. Bai Qingqing immediately looked up and saw that a huge scorpion had appeared in front of Parker.
“Quickly get back to the tree hole!” Parker bellowed without turning his head back. He then transformed into his beast form and started fighting with the scorpion tribe’s beastman.
Bai Qingqing quickly ran back, throwing a worried glance behind her. She saw many black shadows popping up from the snow layers, raising their sharp tails as they moved toward the village.
This heavy snow had given the scorpion tribe an opportunity. They were skilled in concealment, to begin with, and had made use of the acc.u.mulated snow to infiltrate into the village without a trace. All the beastmen were preparing to go to sleep, and this was a great opportunity for them to capture females.
Thankfully, Parker managed to see through them. Otherwise, they’d be caught off guard.
“Help!” After running a little, Bai Qingqing decided to shout out loud!
She was worried that Parker would be in trouble with so many of them against him.
A few scorpion beastmen charged out toward Bai Qingqing, quickly surrounding her.
Bai Qingqing was forced to stay where she was, hugging her cubs tightly. Her legs turned a little weak as she looked at the big scorpion in front of her.
The scorpion beastman in front of Bai Qingqing was completely stunned. The two eyes he had on the back of his sh.e.l.l that looked like two coal b.a.l.l.s stared at the female in front of him. Even his six slightly smaller eyes at the side also turned to look at her, forgetting to observe the environment.
She was really beautiful!
Until danger came.
A leopard dashed into the circle at a speed that was almost impossible to be seen by the naked eye, protecting Bai Qingqing.
The body of the scorpion beastman in front of her trembled, and he flew out.
A white tiger stood at the spot the scorpion beastman who had been sent flying off was at, releasing a deafening roar.
Bai Qingqing tensed up, having the delusion that she was going to be sent flying by the impact of the sound waves. The hair by the side of her face was blown backward.
Winston and Parker exchanged a glance, then they charged out toward the scorpion beastmen. Parker used his head to nudge Bai Qingqing up onto his back and ran for the tree hole.
“Parker.” Bai Qingqing laid on his back and looked back. All the tiger beastmen had come running out and were engaged in an intense battle with the scorpion beastmen.
Parker ran all the way to the tree under their house, turned into his human form, and carried her with one arm. He climbed up the tree and entered the tree hole with ease.
Bai Qingqing fell down weakly onto the floor, and the leopard cubs were sent rolling on the ground.
Parker quickly helped her up, saying, “I’ll send you up to the fifth floor where Curtis is at.”
Bai Qingqing forced herself to get her act together, standing up with her soft noodle-like legs. “Children, come over.”
The leopard cubs were all frightened, and they docilely ran over to Bai Qingqing’s side.
Bai Qingqing carried them while Parker carried her and crawled up to the highest floor of the tree hole.
The entrance to the tree hole’s fifth floor had been sealed up, and it was pitch-black inside.
The black and red python in the room had taken up most of the s.p.a.ce here, curling up into a circle on the floor, his head hidden amidst his body.
“Curtis…” Bai Qingqing could only see a stretch of black shadows. She tried to find her way to Curtis’s side, then sat down, leaning against him.
Parker went to the tree hole, drew out the hay, and put out his head to look outside.
A few scorpions were climbing up the tree, and one of them had even darted into the tree hole.
“Hmph!” Parker snorted. “Qingqing, you wait here. I’ll go down.”
