Chapter 533: Tiger Head Amongst the Flowers
“Run slower, be careful… Oh my!” Seeing Molly getting further and further away, Bai Qingqing could only start running as well.
It could be a psychological effect that Bai Qingqing felt that her heart was beating faster when she had just started running.
Molly dashed into the flower field and then ran further in a little. She let out a cry, then lay on the field.
The thick field caught her, and the blooming flowers completely covered her body.
Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to avert her gaze. She continued to stare at the direction Molly had fallen and rushed over, finally managing to find her.
Molly’s face was flushed, and she was squinting and looking up at the sky. Suddenly, her vision was blocked.
“You ran so fast that even my children went crazy.”
Bai Qingqing looked at the surroundings. The children had disappeared after coming in. She could still see the plants moving around earlier, but now she had lost track of them. She’d have to take some time to search for them later.
“They’ll come back.” Molly turned over, plucked a small white flower, and sniffed it. “Sit down. Don’t always think about them. Their survival abilities are now a lot stronger than ours.”
“Is that so?” Bai Qingqing felt that they were as fragile as when they had just been born.
Laying quietly in the field, the world became exceptionally quiet. Even the sound of the wind blowing at the flowers seemed amplified.
Some indistinct strange sounds seemed to ring out.
Bai Qingqing poked Molly and asked softly, “Did you hear anything?”
Bai Qingqing looked around and asked nervously, “It couldn’t be a scorpion beastman, could it?”
That wasn’t right. It sounded like heavy breathing sounds. Would scorpion beastmen breathe like that?
Molly also sat up, feeling frightened. She then thought of something and let out a sigh in relief, saying, “Don’t scare me. That’s someone else mating. I saw when I came by myself earlier.”
“…” Bai Qingqing glared at her. “You saw them, but you didn’t move further away? Let’s move to another spot.”
“It’s far enough.” Molly lay limply on the ground while Bai Qingqing dragged her. “If you don’t leave, I won’t come with you again.”
As she said that, she looked up unconsciously and saw a small white tiger head appearing in the flower field.
Bai Qingqing let go of her grip, blinked, and looked over. The flower field was swaying with the wind. Where was there any head?
“Did I see wrongly?”
Molly had wanted to continue to remain sluggish but quickly stood up after seeing that Bai Qingqing wasn’t tugging at her anymore. “We’ll change, we’ll change. Come, let’s head deeper in. The flower scent is the strongest there.”
Bai Qingqing looked into the distance in a daze, not replying to her.
Molly walked two steps before grabbing her and saying, “Let’s go. Why are you in a daze?”
“Huh? Oh.” Only then did Bai Qingqing come back to her senses and entered deeper into the flower field. Her eyes kept staring at a spot in the distance.
The further they went in, the lusher the Flos Eriocauli were. The flowers had already reached up to their waist.
“You can’t hear it here, right?” Molly asked.
Bai Qingqing nodded absentmindedly, then looked into the distance again.
“Winston?” Bai Qingqing called out softly but didn’t get any reply.
It must be a delusion. Winston’s senses were so sharp. If it was him just now, he should have found her long ago.
“Why did you suddenly call for His Majesty?” Molly asked curiously.
Bai Qingqing said dejectedly, “It’s nothing. I suddenly thought of him.”
She was about to sit down when swoos.h.i.+ng sounds rang out in the field. Bai Qingqing immediately looked over in that direction and saw something getting close to them rapidly.
Bai Qingqing took a step forward, but her vision was suddenly blurred as a white figure came pouncing toward her, pus.h.i.+ng her onto the ground.
