Chapter 896: Life-And-Death Battle
Parker speedily bit the lion beastman’s body, then escaped nimbly just as the lion beastman flew into a rage and counter-attacked.
Unable to get his mind off the beautiful female, Lion Head wanted to get this over and done with as quickly as possible, so he unleashed 100% of his strength, chasing after his opponent at the greatest speed he could muster.
Sprinting maniacally with his opponent hot on his tails, Parker had no chance to retaliate.
As time went by, his blood started gus.h.i.+ng towards his head, and his body temperature shot up.
A red glow shot out from the golden eyes of the leopard running madly for his life. In the mine shaft, other than the sounds of his running, one could also hear his heavy breathing.
Seeing how Parker’s breathing was growing more rapid, Bai Qingqing’s heart rose to her throat.
Leopards could die from the heat if they ran for prolonged periods!
If she ran away by herself it wouldn’t solve the problem. She had to rescue Parker!
Hence, Bai Qingqing changed her mind and carried An’an back into the cave. She removed her thick and heavy animal skin coat and wrapped An’an with it, then placed the baby on the ground.
The temperature in the underground palace was extremely chilly, pretty much like what one would experience in the cold season. Clad in only a dress, the cold Bai Qingqing instantly s.h.i.+vered, gooseb.u.mps rising all over her skin.
She peered around the cave and found a rock that had the right grip, then inhaled deeply and walked out.
“I’ll fight it out with you!”
Bai Qingqing raised the rock and charged at the lion hot on Parker’s trail.
Right now, Bai Qingqing was positioned between Parker and Lion Head. With Parker running ahead, Lion Head was about to charge ahead, when he saw that he was about to collide with Bai Qingqing.
That instant when she dashed out, time seemed to slow down several magnitudes by an invisible strength.
The three males froze. n.o.body had expected the female to run out and fight with a male.
Lion Head naturally accepted this with pleasure. His eyes sparkled with a red glow, and he had even decided where he was going to bite her.
Couldn’t bite her to death, but he had to experience the pleasures of gnawing the female’s soft body.
He loved tormenting females in this manner—he would invade their bodies while eating them alive, mouthful by mouthful.
This female was fair, tender, and br.i.m.m.i.n.g with moisture. She must taste pretty good.
Lion Head opened his mouth and licked his lips with his long and red tongue.
The black figure hidding in the shadows, not daring to show his face, instantly moved.
But another male was even faster than them.
As Parker and Bai Qingqing were spouses, he detected Bai Qingqing’s actions before the other two males did. Without even thinking for a second, he instantly turned around and sprinted towards her at the quickest speed possible.
Actually, Bai Qingqing’s plan was pretty good. Her idea was to use her spousal mark protection to deal with the lion beastman. Even if she didn’t manage to summon Curtis, she could use Winston’s.
And even if all else failed, Curtis would be able to sense it should her life be threatened.
But how could a male retain his rationality seeing his spouse in danger?
Parker’s speed reached an unprecedented high. All one could see was a blurry figure whoos.h.i.+ng past, and the next thing everyone knew, he appeared in front of Bai Qingqing.
If he hadn’t continued charging ahead, Bai Qingqing would most definitely collide with the leopard.
Parker, with his comparatively slimmer physique, abruptly pounced towards his opponent.
There was a saying: In the world of kungfu, speed defines the winner.
When speed reached an extreme limit, it would result in a several-fold increase in energy.
At that instant, as Lion Head looked at the leopard beastman, a trace of fear subtly rose from the depths of his heart.
But he retained his rationality. He knew that his opponent was only a three-striped beastman. Furthermore, he belonged to a species that couldn’t count with strength as its advantage and merely knew how to display showy movements; a jack-of-all-trades, master of none.
Just as the two beastmen pounced at each other, Lion Head prepared to stand up straight.
But he had overestimated his speed at getting up. Or rather, he had underestimated the explosive power of his opponent.
Before Lion Head could stand upright, before he could launch into his best-attacking stance, the leopard beastman pounced at him with an irresistible force.
