Chapter 864: Dug a Hole and Buried Himself
Hearing that, Bai Qingqing went to pull on the rope.
The weight at the other end of the rope wasn’t light. Without the quicksand river’s inertia, it was hard for Alva to pull it up either. However, the rope still moved up gradually.
The anxiety on Bai Qingqing’s face lightened a little. Then, the rope suddenly turned light. Caught unaware, she fell with her b.u.t.t landing on the scorching sand.
Alva stumbled for two steps and stabilized his body. He reached to pull Bai Qingqing and asked, “How are you?”
Bai Qingqing looked at the rope that had been drawn out in its entirety, then at An’an, who was at the side and laying on the animal skin. Sand suddenly entered her eyes. She blinked, and two trickles of tears rolled down.
The weight from earlier must have been Parker. Why did he suddenly let go? Was he attacked by the beastmen below?
That wasn’t right. If Parker had arrived at a place with beastmen, then Curtis must be there as well. Curtis wouldn’t leave Parker be.
Could it be that Parker was only buried by the sand and had suffocated to death?
Bai Qingqing’s tears fell even more ferociously.
“Don’t cry!” Alva watched as drops of tears landed on the sand and the words uncontrollably darted out of his mouth. “It’s such a waste of water!”
“Scram!” Bai Qingqing grabbed a handful of sand and threw it at him. The sand was scattered by the wind and blew into her face, causing more sand to enter her eyes.
Alva paused, said “sorry”, then fell silent.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t open her eyes. Tears kept flowing out.
She admitted that she had vented her fury a little on Alva. He wasn’t the one in the wrong. She was the one who told Parker to dig a hole. She only had herself to blame.
However, she was in no mood to apologize to Alva. She blinked and stood up.
“I can only summon Curtis when I’m in danger. Alva, bring me up to the sky.” Bai Qingqing sounded decisive.
Alva took a step back. “What do you want to do?”
“I want to jump down from the sky. That’s dangerous enough, right?”
Bai Qingqing approached Alva, grabbed his wrist, and pleaded, “Quickly, any later and it’ll be too late. Only Curtis can save Parker!”
Alva hesitated, and his heart softened under Bai Qingqing’s urging. He said, “I’ll definitely catch you.”
Bai Qingqing let out a bitter smile and didn’t say anything.
If Parker was buried to his death, she wouldn’t want to live either.
Alva transformed into his beast form and flew into the sky with Bai Qingqing. To ensure that he’d be able to catch her, Alva flew very high up.
However, he didn’t know that this increased the level of horror Bai Qingqing felt.
The tent below became so small that it looked just like a small dot. Bai Qingqing was extremely scared but didn’t have the time to make any preparations. After Alva stabilized his body, she shut her eyes and jumped off.
“Ahhh—” Bai Qingqing shrieked.
Bai Qingqing had taken a drop tower ride before. It felt very unbearable even when she was plunging down when the speed was controlled. This time around, the horrifying loss of gravity in this free plunge made her feel as if even her internal organs had s.h.i.+fted. The physical pain was even more intense than the psychological one.
But very soon, Bai Qingqing landed into a cooling embrace.
She opened her eyes in surprise. The strong gale blurred her vision, but she could still see a blurry red color.
His body then trembled abruptly. The speed at which they plunged slowed down.
Bai Qingqing saw Curtis’s face clearly and felt a big sense of relief. She looked up and saw that Alva had grabbed Curtis’s hand.
“Curtis, kill Parker quickly!”
Bai Qingqing looked down, then watched as a head popped up from the sand.
Parker spat out the sand in his mouth and bellowed angrily, “I almost reached the very end! Why did you pull out the rope?”
