Chapter 892: What Happened to Your Hand?
Bai Qingqing rubbed her the wrist of her painful left hand, which had turned an exaggerated patch of red from the scratch, and it seemed like blood was about to seep out from her delicate pores.
Mitch.e.l.l cast a warning glance at the black crystal, then turned towards Bai Qingqing, at which he froze in surprise.
“What happened to your hand?” Although Mitch.e.l.l could somewhat guess it, he didn’t dare to confirm it.
How could someone’s hand be so tender? He swore he hadn’t exerted any strength; the female was the only one doing all that tugging. How could that tiny bit of strength turn her skin into this state!
Mm, that’s right. It must have nothing to do with him, she must have wounded herself prior to this.
Bai Qingqing stared at Mitch.e.l.l warily, then retreated into the innermost corner of the cave with An’an in her arms. She said, “Quick, tell me. Where are my two spouses?”
“They’re alright. It’s just that they entered via the grave pit and will take two days to walk here.” Mitch.e.l.l graciously told her the truth, his concentration still riveted upon her hands.
“Is your hand alright?”
Having learned that Curtis and Winston were safe, Bai Qingqing felt relieved. She said perfunctorily, “I’m okay. And why are you here so quickly?”
“Because the underground palace is alive. So long as I enter via a specific entrance, I’ll be able to get to anywhere here,” said Mitch.e.l.l.
Seeing that the female’s hand had swollen up, the disbelief in Mitch.e.l.l’s eyes intensified.
Feeling astonished, Bai Qingqing gazed at her surroundings. She had known that the underground palace was like a maze, but she hadn’t expected that this place was so mysterious.
“Your hand looks like it’s been burnt from roasting,” Mitch.e.l.l said suddenly.
Bai Qingqing glared at him. “Isn’t it all thanks to you? Okay, I’m done asking questions. You should go back now.”
Her patience had waned. She wanted him to leave immediately.
Of course, Mitch.e.l.l refused to leave. Having learned that he was the one who caused her hand to turn into that state, he said apologetically, “I have never been in contact with any female. I didn’t know that a female was so soft. I’ll be more careful in the future.”
In the future? Bai Qingqing hoped never to have any physical contact with this scorpion.
Dammit. Although his hand looked like a hand alright, it felt like a tough sh.e.l.l when you touched it!
Even till now, she could feel a subtle pain in her skin and bones.
“Forget it. It’s okay, you can go.” Bai Qingqing said, “If you have nothing better to do, help me find Parker… that leopard you duped into going away.”
Mitch.e.l.l, who p.r.i.c.ked up his ears to listen, lowered his voice.
“No need, he’s already back.”
Bai Qingqing’s face lit up with delight, and her first instinct was to crawl out.
But staring at the scorpion king at the entrance of the cave, her body halted.
Mitch.e.l.l glanced at her, then left via a secret pa.s.sageway.
Only then did Bai Qingqing crawl out. Hiding by the wall and looking outside, she saw a leopard running over staggeringly, causing her heart to clench.
“Parker!” Bai Qingqing called out to him softly.
Parker whimpered and quickened his pace, his footsteps becoming more steady now.
If Bai Qingqing hadn’t seen his gait earlier, she would have been deceived by his act.
Parker ran back to the cave and didn’t notice a human figure stealthily leaving in the shadows behind his back.
b.l.o.o.d.y all over, Parker wasn’t severely injured this time though. It was just that his body was a lot more densely covered in wounds.
The moment he ran to Bai Qingqing’s side, Parker’s fur exploded.
He first nervously scrutinized her from head to toe, then surveyed his surroundings.
Bai Qingqing said, “You can tell it with your sense of smell, can’t you? The scorpion king came earlier with the antidote.”
Parker froze for a moment, then transformed into a human.
The blood traces on his fur were squeezed out of his skin, turning into several slim and long b.l.o.o.d.y cuts.
