Chapter 527: Food Was Destroyed

Upon hearing this, Ford also let Becky sniff it.

Bai Qingqing, who couldn’t bear to watch this scene, looked into the distance. And she saw that elsewhere, other females were sniffing the Flos Eriocauli too.

She was speechless.

Just as she was about to s.h.i.+ft her gaze away, the figure of a snake entered her vision.


The snake was very fast, and in the blink of an eye, he appeared before Bai Qingqing and transformed his upper body into its human form.

“Are those scorpion beastmen still pestering you?” Curtis asked with a frown. He instantly knew what was going on when he saw that the surveillance in the tiger village was tighter than usual.

Bai Qingqing gave Curtis a helpless gaze.

“I’ll kill them.” The murderous intent in Curtis’s voice was unmistakable.

Ford couldn’t help but look towards him, wondering what gave this stripeless snake beastman the confidence to declare he was going to kill a group of scorpion beastmen?

But for some reason, he didn’t dare to voice out his thoughts.

Bai Qingqing hurriedly said, “Don’t. What if you accidentally kill a good scorpion? It has been a long time since their last attack. Perhaps they have given up on this thought. Winston only asked them to stay alert because he’s worried.”

Curtis looked impatient, though he didn’t insist.

Very quickly, though, reality gave Bai Qingqing a tight slap in the face.

That afternoon, the tiger beastmen who went out to exchange for salt returned, but the meat upon their shoulders was gone.

The moment they exited the village, they were ambushed by the scorpion tribe. Instead of battling them, the scorpions focused on destroying the food, spitting venom all over the meat that they couldn’t bear to eat the entire cold season.

The temperature was sufficiently high that if they were to make smoked meat now, it would certainly rot. Their hopes of having salt this year were dashed.

Silence emanated throughout the entire village.

Bai Qingqing gazed outside the tree hole and could sense the ostracizing and hateful gazes of the females, which was presented more directly this time.

The tribal head was simmering with anger. “They have got their eye on us. They aren’t giving up so easily. This is only the first year. What are we going to do in the second, third year? Us males might be able to go without salt, but the females can’t!”

Overwhelmed by despair, the tribal head’s fear and respect for his king vanished. Articulating each word clearly, he said, “Your Majesty, are you really going to let our tribe perish for the sake of a female?”

The scar on Winston’s face twitched slightly as his expression turned ferocious. His gaze coldly swept over the tribal head as he said in his deep voice, “I will answer to the tiger tribe.”

“Then, drive Bai Qingqing out!” hollered the tribal head.

“Dad!” Molly pulled the tribal head’s hand. Gazing at his female cub, the tribal head’s expression eased slightly.

Bai Qingqing turned her head towards Curtis and Parker. She said dejectedly, “We’d better move away.”

Winston remained solid as a rock in the face of everyone’s queries.

“The root cause of the matter is that we’re not strong enough. You think that by relenting, the scorpion tribe will let the tiger tribe off?” Winston said in a cold voice, “They have a clear grasp of things around here. Even without Bai Qingqing, they will come to s.n.a.t.c.h other females.”

The tribal head’s face turned pale. “Then, what are you planning to do?”


Before Winston could reply, Curtis’s icy voice entered their ears.

He slithered out from the tree hole, exuding a mighty aura. Even with no animal stripes, others couldn’t help but look upon him as a powerful beastman.

“Kill them all, and the matter will be resolved.” Curtis swept his gaze over Winston, before turning around and preparing to leave.

Winston immediately said, “I’ll go!”

Curtis halted in his tracks.

“You’re not suited for the high temperatures of the desert in the day. It’s more appropriate for me to go.”

Winston a.n.a.lyzed, “Their tribe’s advantage is their numbers. Not all the scorpion beastmen can bring together so many of their kind. It must be the leader of the scorpion tribe behind this. Once we kill their leader, the scorpion tribe won’t ever invade our village again.”
