Chapter 888: The Scorpion King Visits Again

Parker’s injuries recovered completely after two days.

The two of them stayed in the dark hole without anything to do. It was really boring.

“When will they be back?” Bai Qingqing asked for the 101st time.

Outside the hole, a leopard was darting up and down. He climbed up to the top of the mine shaft and came to a stop.

“I also want to know.” Parker knocked on the soil at the top, then said, “It’s all rocks on top. How are we going to get out?”

Bai Qingqing also looked up.

“There should be a hidden exit.” Bai Qingqing guessed. Before she finished her words, she was suddenly interrupted by Parker.


Bai Qingqing immediately kept quiet and hid the luminous ball.

A set of light footsteps rang out in the pa.s.sageway. But midway, it turned back.

Parker quietly landed on the ground, ran over to the pa.s.sageway, and took a look outside.

He then returned to the hole and said to Bai Qingqing in a soft voice, “It’s that lion beastman.”

Bai Qingqing felt nervous, pulling Parker and wanting to get him to hide into the hole.

Parker rubbed her and turned, planning to leave.

Bai Qingqing quickly grabbed his hand, shaking her head anxiously.

Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to say a word for fear that the beastman’s sharp hearing would hear her. However, her bright eyes were clearly saying the words: No, you can’t win against him. You’ll get hurt.

Parker moved close to her ear and lowered his voice. “He’s searching the vicinity and will find his way here in a while. I have to lure him away. There are a few pa.s.sageways that lead to this place. I still have time to leave from another pa.s.sageway. If I’m any later, my path will be blocked by him.”

After saying that, Parker hardened his heart and withdrew his hand from her hold. He turned into his beast form and ran away quietly.

Bai Qingqing’s eyes still couldn’t see anything, and she felt around like a blind person, feeling even more anxious.

She knelt and lay low by An’an’s side, covering her ears, and rubbed her face against An’an’s cheeks. Rather than consoling An’an, it could be said that she was getting consolation from her.

Parker must come back safely.

Footsteps rang out outside again. Judging from their frequency, Bai Qingqing was certain that it wasn’t Parker. The alarm in her heart rang off.

Could it be that the lion beastman had gotten in before Parker went out?

She held her breath, hoping that the other person wouldn’t notice her.

“Your b.u.t.t is raised so high. Are you thinking of mating with me?” A teasing voice rang into Bai Qingqing’s ears.

Stunned, she sat up, turning her head to look outside.

“Scorpion king?” Bai Qingqing said in surprise. “Or should I be calling you Shuu?”

Hearing the name “Shuu”, the scorpion king’s heart palpitated intensely. The black crystal hanging in front of his chest instantly turned blacker.

Although Bai Qingqing could only see the scorpion king’s shadow, the black crystal was exceptionally obvious. It was like a black hole in front of the scorpion king’s chest, looking very eerie.

“You can just call me Shuu.” The scorpion king threw a glance at the black crystal. The abnormal feeling pulled his smile even wider, revealing his eerie white teeth.

“Why is it you? Where’s the lion beastman?” Bai Qingqing brought out the luminous ball and crawled over to the hole’s entrance to take a look.

The scorpion king said, “Him? I was the one who lured him here. As expected, your mate lured him away.”

Bai Qingqing was speechless.

d.a.m.n! To think that beastmen also knew the trick of luring the enemy away from their base!

She knew that An’an’s antidote depended on the scorpion king, but she still couldn’t help but glare at him.

If Parker got hurt, this person wouldn’t be able to escape the blame.

Bai Qingqing was extremely angry. However, because she looked beautiful and her disposition was too harmless, her glare never had any hint of threat in them.
