Chapter 831: Unt.i.tled
Roar roar roar roar!
The leopard head above the water swam a little toward the center of the lake before immediately turning back for the sh.o.r.e. The intense green in the lake quickly gathered around it, looking so packed that it felt hard to breathe.
Parker scrambled up to the sh.o.r.e, his body covered with thorns. He crawled up and dragged along a large pile of root-shaped plants after him.
They entangled the leopard tightly, trying to drag him back into the water. The leopard engaged in a tug-of-war with the aquatic plant.
In the time for one breath, the leopard’s body, which was filled with thorns, was covered in blood. His legs turned limp, and he almost lay down on the ground.
Putting up a struggle with his last bit of strength, the leopard dragged the heavy “chains” and took a few steps forward, holding onto a shrub.
A trail of piercing blood was left on the ground, and it was all absorbed by the greedy and thirsty thorns.
Aquatic plants couldn’t be away from the water for too long. After holding up for a while, they retreated into the lake like a tide.
A huge snake crawled over, throwing a glance at the unmoving Parker who was hugging onto the shrub like a dead leopard.
Curtis poked him with the tip of his tail.
Parker’s body twitched a little, and he opened his mouth to let out a few low and ferocious roars.
Parker then changed into his human form while still grabbing onto the shrub, laying on the ground. He bared his teeth and said, “Pain, pain, pain, pain, pain! Don’t poke me! Howl!”
Curtis then looked toward the lake and headed toward it.
“Be careful. The thorns are poisonous. I can’t move,” said Parker after lying on the ground.
Curtis probed his tail into the water, then lifted it, hooking up a ball of root-like plants. He could feel hints of pain entering through the gaps of his scales.
These plants were so small and dense that even his scales couldn’t act as guards.
The little snake quickly crawled up, carrying Bai Qingqing up horizontally and placing her on the bed.
When Bai Qingqing saw the little snake’s face, she felt so anxious that her eyes kept on darting around. However, her body felt so weak that she wasn’t able to move at all.
The little snake stroked her face gently, his fingers smooth and cold, moving along Bai Qingqing’s skin like a slithering snake. They went up to her neck and reached her clothes right above her chest.
Bai Qingqing’s heart felt as if it was suspended in the air. She immediately understood that the little snake was going to use the feral beast’s way of forming mates like what Curtis had done.
Just as the little snake was about to pull down her clothing, Bai Qingqing recovered a bit of her strength. She moved her body away and avoided his hand.
“How did you hook up with the merfolk?”
The little snake was in no hurry. He drew his hand back and said, “Not long after I ate the fruit, I met the ape king. I think he was the one who had lured me to eat it.”
An expression of hatred immediately appeared on Bai Qingqing’s face.
The little snake smiled. “But I don’t mind, I only want you. Later on, I awakened reproduction memories and realized that I couldn’t s.n.a.t.c.h you away from the village. That’s why I went to look for them.”
“Do you know about the other little snakes?” Bai Qingqing asked worriedly. “Did they eat the same fruit?”
“I don’t know. Maybe they did. We split up after being thrown away by Father.”
The little snake’s eyes squinted, emitting killing intent from his blood-red eyes. “If they come to s.n.a.t.c.h you away, I’ll kill all of them!”
Bai Qingqing sighed inside. This son of hers had completely gone down the wrong path.
As they spoke, Bai Qingqing had recovered her strength and immediately sat up.
It had turned dark, and Bai Qingqing heard sounds outside. She immediately became elated.
“It must be Parker and Curtis!”
Bai Qingqing crawled up and was about to go out when her wrist was grabbed by the little snake.
