Chapter 876: No Tail
His voice sounded hoa.r.s.e and terrible as if his throat were filled with sand.
One must either have their throat destroyed or have not spoken for very long to have such a voice.
Bai Qingqing’s heart skipped a beat, and she looked in the direction of the voice.
Turned out that this person had entered the cave she was staying in earlier. In this short while, he had brought over her luggage and walked over to the rock pile once again.
Bai Qingqing backed off a little. She reckoned that he shouldn’t be able to touch her, but he reached over and lifted her out.
d.a.m.n! Wasn’t this guy’s arm too long?
The man emitted an intense and piercing blood stench that made it hard for Bai Qingqing to breathe.
Anyway, this person wasn’t doing her any harm yet. Therefore, Bai Qingqing didn’t put up any needless struggle nor made any sound.
She was lifted by the collar, being so quiet that she was like a rabbit being held up by the ears.
The man moved very quickly, making lots of turns in the underground palace. He eventually arrived in an abandoned mine shaft.
The mine shaft was very s.p.a.cious, being a big hole that had been dug empty. There was almost no scent of beastmen her, and clearly, it had been very long since any beastman came here.
He found a concealed corner and put Bai Qingqing down before digging a hole with his bare hands.
Seeing no one around, Bai Qingqing thought,
This is a good place to hide.
If they had hidden here right from the beginning, there wouldn’t have been any accidents.
Bai Qingqing stared at the man and slowly backed off.
There was no one here, so this was also a good place to kill and silence someone!
Bai Qingqing’s heel kicked a small piece of rock by accident, releasing colliding sounds.
The man stopped, and his hoa.r.s.e voice rang out.
“I won’t hurt you.”
Bai Qingqing opened her eyes wide in surprise and spoke weakly, “Really?”
“Why did you come here?”
The male didn’t turn. His hands were locked onto the earth walls as if suppressing something. He was exerting so much force that his joints had turned pale.
Bai Qingqing didn’t reply immediately. When she heard the male saying that he wouldn’t hurt her, she became braver.
She walked up behind the male and a.s.sessed him, asking instead, “Why did you help me? Do… you know me?”
All rootless beasts held great hatred for females, having a strong urge to kill them if they were to catch one. However, this person said that he wouldn’t hurt her.
Was it because she was too beautiful that even a rootless beast’s heart softened for her?
Cough, this thinking was too narcissistic. She shouldn’t think like that.
The guy turned his head away and avoided her gaze. He paused before saying in a deep voice, “I’m not a rootless beast.”
“Ahh!” Bai Qingqing let out a surprised cry. She then felt extremely happy and felt completely at ease.
“No wonder! Thank you.”
“Why did you come to Flame City?” the man asked, continuing to dig.
An’an grabbed Bai Qingqing’s breast. She was clearly hungry.
Bai Qingqing arranged her coat and then turned over to feed An’an. She said, “I want to look for the scorpion king.”
The man’s action paused ever so slightly that it was unnoticeable. He didn’t give any reply and continued digging the hole.
Bai Qingqing stroked An’an’s head and forced a smile, saying, “My female child is poisoned with scorpion venom. My mates and I have all come to look for the antidote.”
The man gave a note as a reply.
What did that mean?
Bai Qingqing didn’t think too much into it. She sat down, leaning against the luggage while feeding An’an peacefully.
She dug out the luminous ball while feeling bored. The faint glow illuminated a small area of s.p.a.ce.
Bai Qingqing wanted to take a look at her savior with the help of the light, but the male suddenly darted into the hole. She only saw half a pitch-black body without any tail.
Beastmen without any tails… There were snake beastmen, scorpion beastmen, and bird-typed beastmen.
