Chapter 880: Scorpion King Appears (2)
Bai Qingqing felt uncomfortable from his looks but forcibly bore with things after getting an affirmation from him.
“I’ve always been curious about you. What kind of female are you to be able to attract so many strong beastmen? One came over one month ago to ask me for the antidote, and another one came yesterday,” the scorpion king said.
Over one month ago… It must be Winston. But the suitor from yesterday…
“You’re mistaken. The one from yesterday isn’t my suitor. We only got to know each other yesterday,” Bai Qingqing explained.
The scorpion king’s gaze held a hint of mockery. “As expected, not a single beautiful female is good!”
Bai Qingqing was speechless.
She explained speechlessly, not wanting to continue with the c.r.a.p with him. She said anxiously, “I only want the antidote. You were the one who caused my female child to be poisoned. Please give us the antidote.”
“The reason I’ve come is to give you the antidote. But do you know what’s the price the two males paid?”
Bai Qingqing ignored the mention of “the two suitors” and only asked, “What price?”
“Winston promised to look for 1,000 black crystals. I’ll give him the antidote once he has gathered them all. As for ‘the one you only met yesterday’…”
The scorpion king’s gaze when looking at Bai Qingqing was filled with disdain. “He promised to work for me for his entire life. Of course, as repayment, I can give the antidote to you immediately.”
Bai Qingqing was stunned.
Who was that man? Why was he so good to her?
“The way you look now gives me a bit of a favorable impression. You aren’t considered too heartless.”
The scorpion king slowly got closer to the hole, admiring the female’s beautiful looks. He then said condescendingly, “How about this? If you mate with me once, I’ll give you the antidote for free.”
Bai Qingqing almost spurted out a mouthful of blood. She clenched her fists, having the urge to punch him.
This guy probably just wanted for them to become mates!
As expected of feral beasts. They were all the type to seize by force.
It was as if the scorpion king heard what Bai Qingqing was thinking and said in mockery, “Don’t think too highly of yourself. I’m a rootless beast by nature and have no feelings nor desires. Even if I mate with you, I won’t become mates with you, nor will I fall in love with you.”
His words were filled with mockery. Bai Qingqing didn’t know if he was mocking himself or her.
Bai Qingqing was stunned.
She vaguely recalled Winston mentioning before that the descendants of the many females who were captured to Flame City and r*ped by those rootless beasts were all born as rootless beasts by nature.
The scorpion king was born as a rootless beast.
“How about it?”
The scorpion king stood in front of Bai Qingqing, and the rock in front of his chest swung a little.
“Hmmm?” Bai Qingqing let out a sound in surprise, reaching out to touch that rock.
This looked a lot like the soul crystals! To think that it was an octahedral crystal as well. It was just that the color was its complete opposite.
One was purely translucent without any color while the other was pure black, so much so that no light could pa.s.s through it.
The scorpion king tilted his head, and his gaze followed Bai Qingqing’s fair and slender hand. He licked the corner of his lips with a hint of er*ticism.
However, the instant Bai Qingqing’s hand came into contact with that black crystal, the scorpion king’s expression suddenly changed. It was as if he was tolerating a great agony as he bent his body.
Bai Qingqing quickly drew her hand back. “Are you alright?”
The scorpion king placed his hand on the entrance as his breathing became heavy.
After quite a while, the scorpion king calmed down.
When he raised his head again, he was still with his handsome face, but he seemed to have changed to another person.
He stared at Bai Qingqing with pitch-black eyes even more intensely than earlier. There was no longer any hint of nefariousness in his gaze. He now looked warm and harmless like an elder brother from the neighborhood.
Bai Qingqing blinked as she looked at him.
