Chapter 881: Lay a Hand on Her If You Dare
The scorpion king inhaled, looked at Bai Qingqing, and backed off a few steps.
Bai Qingqing looked at him strangely and then said, “I won’t agree to your request. Give me the antidote first. We’ll then help you look for what you want. An’an can’t wait anymore. If the venom stays one more day in her body, it’d bring one more bit of harm to her.”
The scorpion king seemed as if he didn’t hear anything. He looked at Bai Qingqing’s face and suddenly reached out.
Bai Qingqing immediately avoided it.
The scorpion king’s hand paused in midair, his face looking both aggrieved and happy, making Bai Qingqing have a serious suspicion that she had encountered a lunatic.
“Hey, are you really the scorpion king?” Bai Qingqing asked doubtfully. The animal stripes on this person’s face couldn’t have been drawn on, could it?
“I’m Shuu,” the scorpion king suddenly said.
Bai Qingqing was stunned again, and the wolf beastman who had died a horrible death immediately appeared in her mind.
Bai Qingqing gulped, hid her emotions, then said, “Your name is also Shuu?”
The scorpion king seemed satisfied by Bai Qingqing’s reaction and smiled, before rapidly saying, “The antidote is the bone marrow on the scorpion tail! I’ll give it to you right away!”
Bai Qingqing was overjoyed! “Thank you! Thank you!”
The scorpion king looked at Bai Qingqing’s face, then his body started to transform into his beast state.
Bai Qingqing couldn’t believe that things were proceeding so smoothly. Once she received the antidote, their family could return to the village.
However, the scorpion beastman was midway in his transformation when he forcibly turned back into his human form.
Bai Qingqing was speechless.
The nefarious scorpion king returned. He held his hand to the heart and looked at Bai Qingqing with a gaze of disbelief.
“You’re really capable!”
After throwing this line out of nowhere, the scorpion king turned to leave.
Bai Qingqing chased after him for a little. “Hey, hold on. Where’s the antidote you agreed to give me?”
The scorpion king’s figure quickly disappeared. Bai Qingqing couldn’t feel at ease leaving An’an and Parker, so she could only return.
After she returned to the hole, she saw that Parker was seated on the nest, seeming deep in thought.
Bai Qingqing said in surprise, “You’ve woken up?”
“How can I not when it’s so noisy?” Parker reached out to pull her into his arms.
“Did you feign sleep?” Bai Qingqing was suddenly struck with a realization. “That person earlier was really strange. Is he the scorpion king?”
Parker’s breathing was weak, and his head rested on Bai Qingqing’s head weakly. His tough bones poked Bai Qingqing’s head so hard that it hurt.
“If I didn’t, would he say so much?” Parker’s nose twitched and he said, “It’s the scent of a scorpion beastman. He’s also stronger than me. He should be the scorpion king.”
The scorpion king had fled from the place, his heart pounding quickly, almost jumping out from his mouth.
The feeling of this heartthrob was something he hadn’t experienced before in the fifty or more years of his life. It was so intense that he almost suffocated.
Was this the feeling that ordinary beastmen felt toward their beloved?
The scorpion king’s footsteps slowed down. He clutched the black crystal in front of his chest and tugged it off fiercely.
“Even you are that female’s suitor… This is bad.”
He only put on this soul crystal because its emotions were intense. He wanted to have a sense of feelings.
He didn’t expect that the first time experiencing it, he gave off the most important secret to another beastman.
If this piece of information were to spread out, who would still be wary against his scorpion poison?
However, the feeling earlier really wasn’t bad. It was worth it to be able to experience it once in this lifetime.
The scorpion king’s lips curled up slowly, and the female’s looks appeared in his mind. He no longer held any adverse feelings toward her.
He was lost in his thoughts when the sound of breaking wind suddenly rang out by his side. Before the scorpion king could react, he was sent flying by a strong punch, falling on the floor with a loud bang.
“I told you to give her the antidote. Lay a hand on her if you dare!”
