Chapter 834: Won’t Meet Any Little Snakes Anymore
She was very thankful that she had brought along the gift Curtis had given her so that it’d be easier for her to look for treasures in the mountains.
“I beg of you!” Bai Qingqing pleaded. A trickle of blood immediately rolled off from her fair and slender neck.
The scale was too sharp and wouldn’t bring too much pain.
Bai Qingqing had no idea that she had applied a lot of pressure. It was also because of this ignorance that her threat made a big impact.
Curtis instantly felt like crus.h.i.+ng the little snake, but the grip of his tail loosened a little.
“Move the scale away!” Curtis’s suppressed voice carried with it a hint of rage.
“I’ll move it away after you let go of him!” Bai Qingqing raised her head, exposing her frail neck in front of Curtis. Her artery was throbbing strongly.
Parker got out from the water and immediately turned into his human form. “Qingqing!”
He then threw a glance at the little snake and said anxiously, “Quickly let go of him! Qingqing is bleeding! Qingqing, you let go as well!”
Since Curtis didn’t move, Bai Qingqing refused to give in as well, exerting more force. Blood flowed down even faster, dyeing An’an’s body in red.
Curtis stared at the scale on Bai Qingqing’s hand. Enraged, his face muscles twitched.
However, Bai Qingqing wasn’t scared this time around. She looked straight into Curtis’s eyes as tears kept flowing down incessantly. She didn’t show any signs of backing off or hesitation.
“I promise that I won’t meet the little snake anymore in the future. I won’t meet any of them. Can you let him off?”
Seeing that Bai Qingqing’s hand holding the scale kept on fluctuating in strength, being able to cut her artery at any moment, Curtis took in a few deep breaths before throwing the little snake into the lake fiercely.
Boom! The little snake immediately sank after he landed in the water.
Bai Qingqing quickly turned her head to take a look. While she was out of it, Curtis grabbed onto her wrist and forcibly took away the scale covered in blood.
Bai Qingqing’s attention immediately went back to him.
Only now did she remember to feel scared when facing such a Curtis. She hugged An’an tightly as she looked at him with her eyes wide open.
Parker got up close to Bai Qingqing’s neck and licked it a few times, cleaning off the blood on her skin. A clean wound was exposed, and blood quickly flowed out again.
Parker covered her neck with his hand and said anxiously, “Quickly go get some medicinal herbs!”
Curtis threw Bai Qingqing a glance and then turned to head into the lake.
Bai Qingqing felt anxious and grabbed his hand.
“I won’t kill him,” Curtis said without turning back.
Bai Qingqing relaxed. She leaned in Parker’s embrace and asked weakly, “Can you pull him out?”
What if the little snake drowned? All the air in his stomach had been squeezed dry by Curtis, and she didn’t see him coming up to get more air either.
Curtis said coldly, “Not killing him is my greatest concession.”
After saying that, he slid into the water.
With Curtis gone, Bai Qingqing relaxed completely. She hugged Parker and howled. “It’s so painful!”
“You did it to yourself.” Parker bellowed.
No matter how fierce he acted, Bai Qingqing wasn’t afraid. She stuck out her tongue. “I was just trying to scare him. I didn’t expect the scale to be so sharp. I’ll hold onto the wound myself. Quickly go and check out the little snake.”
Parker threw a fierce at her glance before jumping into the water.
He came up not long after.
“How is it?” Bai Qingqing quickly asked. She grew apprehensive when she didn’t see the little snake.
Parker said, “I didn’t see him. He must have escaped.”
Bai Qingqing felt at ease. “That’s good.”
Parker picked up An’an and wiped off the blood on her.
