Chapter 917: Failed Removal
Bai Qingqing felt horrified and started screaming hysterically. She put up an intense struggle, and when she felt a piercing pain in her arm, she screamed even more intensely.
Parker had his head lowered and was searching while sniffing the sand when he suddenly sensed his mate very intensely and looked in another direction.
Winston seemed to have sensed something as well and paused.
Only Curtis seemed as if he hadn’t felt anything. He slithered as he flicked out his tongue, getting the small snakes in the surroundings to dart through the sandy ground even faster.
Curtis only raised his head when he sensed Parker’s gaze.
The three beastmen gathered together.
“Qingqing used my power earlier. It’s in that direction,” Parker said anxiously.
Winston immediately chipped in, “I sensed it too.”
He then hesitated for a moment, pressing his hand to his chest, his countenance seeming a little amiss.
Seeing that, Parker then said anxiously, “You also sensed that something is amiss, right? I sensed an intense threat earlier.” He then threw a glance at Curtis, his expression seemingly with a hint of pity. “You didn’t sense anything?”
Curtis’s countenance was terrifyingly grim.
Winston suppressed the unease in his heart and said in a deep voice, “It’s a good thing that you didn’t sense anything. It proves that Qingqing isn’t in any life-threatening danger. The beastman who captured her clearly isn’t one of the males in Flame City who harbor a hatred for females and isn’t thinking of taking her life.”
Curtis’s countenance turned a little better, and he let out hissing sounds as he flicked out his tongue, commanding the snakes in the desert to search in the direction they had sensed the connection with Bai Qingqing.
Snakes were afraid of the heat, but these slithering snakes lived in the desert and therefore excelled in drilling through the ground. As long as they had enough time, it wouldn’t be a problem for them to search through the entire stretch of s.p.a.ce below this oasis.
They’d find Bai Qingqing soon or later.
The intense retaliation Bai Qingqing tried to put up left her in a battered state. Her clothing was messed up and her fair skin was covered in blood. Although she didn’t experience anything bad, she seemed forlorn.
Finally, a gush of energy movement broke out from the black crystal. Mitch.e.l.l’s body instantly froze.
Bai Qingqing only felt that the strength of the hands confining her loosened, and she quickly crawled out from under him, turning her head to check her left arm.
At that instant, her mind was paralyzed, and she didn’t dare to think about anything. She only managed to take a look at it after summoning her courage. However, she only saw that her arm was covered in blood and she couldn’t see it clearly.
It was very depleting to the stamina to be unable to feel relieved, but the fear felt rose even more.
Bai Qingqing wiped her arms messily, finally locating that familiar tiger tattoo covered in blood.
That was great, Winston was still around!
Bai Qingqing felt as if a great burden had been taken off her chest, and she leaned weakly against the stone wall. Her mind was in a blank and her gaze landed on An’an’s eyes, which also seemed horrified.
Bai Qingqing smiled and tried to seek joy amidst the sorrows as she thought,
It isn’t easy to be able to get An’an to show some reaction.
When she saw the face in front of her, An’an suddenly howled.
Bai Qingqing was about to carry An’an when a pair of big hands grabbed her before she did.
“Return my child to me.” Bai Qingqing became fierce like a mother hen whose chick had been s.n.a.t.c.hed from her. She s.n.a.t.c.hed An’an away from Mitch.e.l.l’s arms.
Bai Qingqing only found it strange after she carried An’an.
Why was she able to s.n.a.t.c.h An’an away so easily?
“Don’t be scared.”
Bai Qingqing was feeling suspicious when she heard Mitch.e.l.l’s gentle voice. His voice sounded so careful that she broke out in gooseb.u.mps.
She raised her head and saw that Mitch.e.l.l looked like he wanted to get close but didn’t dare to do so. He looked at her body, his gaze filled with heartache for her.
Bai Qingqing thought of something and lowered her head to take a look. She then immediately lifted the strap that had dropped down to her elbow and tidied her clothes.
