Chapter 877: The Man’s Ident.i.ty
Someone residing in Flame City and wasn’t a rootless beast should be a scorpion beastman.
After Bai Qingqing fed An’an, the male was done digging the hole.
He came out with his back facing Bai Qingqing. The luminous ball lit up his back while a ma.s.sive shadow was cast down in front of him.
“It’s done. You can hide inside.”
The hoa.r.s.e voice rang into Bai Qingqing’s ears, not sounding more pleasant than earlier. However, Bai Qingqing wasn’t scared of it anymore. Instead, she found it kind.
Bai Qingqing walked over to the cave and put the luminous ball inside to light it up.
Mmm, it was quite s.p.a.cious.
When Bai Qingqing walked over, the man turned to face the mine shaft’s exit.
This made Bai Qingqing’s plan of taking a look at her savior to fail again.
“I still don’t know your name. I’m called Bai Qingqing, what about you?” Bai Qingqing looked at the figure and asked.
The man was silent. Suddenly, he tensed up and quickly stayed against the wall, concealing himself into the darkness.
Bai Qingqing looked over strangely, then vaguely heard a series of footsteps. She was surprised and quickly stuffed the luminous ball into her animal skin clothing and hid in the hole.
An’an grabbed onto the luminous ball’s wooden staff and started chewing it.
Bai Qingqing was so nervous that she could hear the sound of her heartbeat as well as the sound of An’an grinding her teeth.
A leopard’s cry rang out from outside.
Bai Qingqing’s mouth opened wide and she called out, feeling pleasantly surprised, “Parker?”
Parker became spirited and limped his way to the hole’s entrance, b.u.mping into her climbing out.
Parker stuck out his tongue and licked her face.
Bai Qingqing also rubbed against Parker’s furry face, digging out the luminous ball from An’an’s mouth and s.h.i.+ning it on him.
“Are you hurt? Where are you injured?”
Parker moaned twice and hid, not wanting to let her see him.
However, the blood on him was enough to scare Bai Qingqing.
She pressed Parker down forcibly and took An’an out from her embrace, placing her down by the side. She then checked Parker’s body carefully.
Parker had a piece of flesh bitten off from his waist, and she could see a twitching blood vessel amidst the b.l.o.o.d.y wound.
His hind legs were covered in blood. Upon a closer look, she realized that he was bitten on his left upper thigh. His flesh wasn’t bitten off, but it flipped out from the fang marks and still looked scary.
The leopard also had a light wound on his face, but that could be neglected compared to the wounds on his body.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t bear to watch and blew on Parker’s face, saying gently, “Can you change into your human form? I’ll help you clean your wounds. It’ll lessen the chances of the wounds getting infected.”
Parker licked her face and then turned into his human form.
The conversation in the hole was too warm. The human figure standing close to the walls listened quietly for a while before leaving.
After Bai Qingqing had taken care of the wounds on Parker’s body, she recalled her savior and crawled out to take a look.
“What are you looking at?”
Parker crawled out as well. “Oh right, how did you come to this place?”
Parker’s nose twitched and he frowned, saying, “What a strong scent of blood.”
“Someone saved me earlier. It wasn’t a rootless beast. I think he should be a scorpion beastman,” Bai Qingqing said.
The alarm in Parker’s heart went off as he threw a glance at her face before sniffing vigorously.
As there was a strong scent of blood on his body as well, it covered the scent of the hole, and he wasn’t able to notice someone else’s scent at the first instant.
Now that he sniffed it carefully, he didn’t expect to notice the scent of someone familiar.
To think that the eagle beastman whose wings had been bitten off by him hadn’t died. He had come to Flame City and even came across them.
