Chapter 67: Cortis Gets Brutal

The beast tide arrived. The smell of the giant beast egg drifted into the sky. With the giant beasts jumping on the ground, making loud banging noises, the impact of the strong vibration brought about a crack in the terrain.

Under the rampage of the giant beasts, the towering old trees collapsed one by one.

Cortis swung his snake tail and crawled from one collapsing tree to a thicker one, the danger of which could only be felt by Cortis himself.

In any case, the sickly Bai Qingqing was much more awake now due to the shock, and she finally had the strength to silently grumble. d.a.m.n! Are we shooting a movie?

The sense of weightlessness Cortis felt as he swung in the skies was not inferior to the feeling one got on a rollercoaster ride. Bai Qingqing felt like her heart was about to leap out of her chest.

She slumped lifelessly on Cortis’s body, watching as the scenes flew by before her eyes. All she managed to see was a patch of green.

This tree that Cortis was on must be very old. With its circ.u.mference, perhaps even a hundred people wouldn’t be able to form one full circle around its trunk. There was a hole on the tree the size of a small room—perhaps the nest of some animal. Cortis crawled into the hole with Bai Qingqing in his arms.

“What should we do?” The tree trunk shook with the vibrations on the ground, and Bai Qingqing’s voice trembled accordingly.

Gazing at her, Cortis gently fixed his large hand on her slim and long neck.

The female was so fragile, a gentle pinch and her life would end. How could he bear to do it to her?

Instinctively sensing danger, Bai Qingqing felt all the hairs on her body standing on end. In a frail voice, she asked, “Cortis?”

Cortis gazed at Bai Qingqing with lifeless eyes, then he suddenly placed a hand on her face and said, “I’ll bring you to that eagle beastman.”

Bai Qingqing was delighted to hear that, but when her eyes met Cortis’s desolate ones, she instantly kept away the delight on her face and said, “After I leave, the crowd of giant beasts will leave too. In the future, you can come to the tribe to look for me.”

The joy on Bai Qingqing’s face was too obvious, Cortis couldn’t have possibly missed that. He smiled bitterly.

As he released her, his gaze fell upon her chest.

“Ah! What are you doing?” A terror-stricken Bai Qingqing screamed as Cortis’s cold and large hand lifted her tube top. She covered her chest with her arms and dodged with all her might, terrified.

Was Cortis going to force himself on her in these last moments?

It was indeed befitting of a homeless beast.

“Don’t do this…” Bai Qingqing’s voice sounded choked and her eyes welled up with tears instantly as she looked pleadingly at the towering Cortis.

“Ssss—” Cortis didn’t seem to notice that. The features of a snake appeared on his head—his skin was now covered with dense light red and light black scales.

Most visibly, his sharp and glistening fangs in the corners of his mouth could be seen.

He lowered his head and opened his mouth to bite Bai Qingqing, using his sharp teeth to instantly pierce through the human’s tender skin.


The pitiful cries of a female rang from the hole in the tree.

Moore instantly flew towards the tree hole and was prepared to fight to the death with the snake beastman, when unexpectedly, the snake beastman glided out with the unconscious female in his arms.

“What happened to her?”

“Take her away with you.” Cortis straightened his arms with much difficulty and handed Bai Qingqing to the eagle beastman.

Full of questions and yet to recover from his shock, Moore nonetheless used his back to catch the female, before cautiously flapping his wings and flying into the skies.

Watching as the female went further and further away from him, Cortis’s eyes were dim and lifeless. “I will go and look for you…”

After Bai Qingqing left, the horde of giant beasts also s.h.i.+fted according to the smell.
