Chapter 920: Threat and Murder
“Leave me be. I’ll take care of them myself,” Bai Qingqing said unkindly.
This was the first time that Mitch.e.l.l felt annoyed by the scorpion tribe’s instincts. He could remember everything and knew how angry Bai Qingqing should be feeling about him.
He felt regretful and thus didn’t force her. These injuries weren’t deep anyway, so they’d probably heal very quickly.
When Bai Qingqing was wiping off the blood, Mitch.e.l.l still asked, “Where did you find this female crystal? We’ve been searching for crystals for decades, but all of them are male souls. We hadn’t found a single female soul crystal.”
Bai Qingqing was surprised. She quickly thought that after males died, their souls would drift to the desert and condense to form crystals. On the other hand, the females would remain in the comfortable forest.
Mitch.e.l.l picked up the black crystal in front of his chest, “tsked”, then held it tightly.
“Soul crystals are hidden in the soil and release their memories. After their memories are completely released, they’ll disappear. It’s very pitiful that he has to take so many years. Why don’t I help him break free earlier?”
As Mitch.e.l.l said this, he paid attention to Bai Qingqing’s reaction. He was satisfied to see that her countenance had changed.
Bai Qingqing clenched her fists tightly in fury. What help? This was clearly a threat! Murder!
Although one might be able to reincarnate after the memories had been completely released, with the way Mitch.e.l.l did things, Shuu might possibly disappear completely!
“They can be found everywhere in the forest. We just picked a random one.” Bai Qingqing’s face sank as she said this.
However, Mitch.e.l.l didn’t believe her. He said, “Why don’t I promise not to touch you before you agree to it and you tell me the location of where the soul crystal was dug up? Soul crystals appear in groups. If there’s one, there must be many others.”
Bai Qingqing’s eyes rolled, feeling that this could work.
“Alright!” Bai Qingqing said decisively.
Mitch.e.l.l was elated and wanted to say something when what Bai Qingqing said next wiped off his high spirits.
“But I wasn’t the one who found the crystal, it was my mate. You’ll have to let me meet my mates.” Bai Qingqing smiled craftily, finally winning a bout. She regained her vigor.
Mitch.e.l.l looked at the female’s appearance, his heart throbbing while feeling angry at the same time.
“You clearly just want to escape!” Mitch.e.l.l said angrily.
He put up a struggle inside. Should he choose Bai Qingqing or the female soul crystals? Bai Qingqing didn’t seem to be lying. She must have seen a soul crystal before.
Bai Qingqing felt happy. After all, those female crystals didn’t matter to her. After knowing that those crystals were condensed from souls, she didn’t even dare to use them as accessories anymore.
Hmmm? Wait a minute… Seven pieces made up one complete set of that female crystal.
“Where are Shuu’s other souls? Why is there only one?” Bai Qingqing asked anxiously.
Mitch.e.l.l took a look at the black crystal in front of his chest, saying in perplexity, “There’s only one. Does one soul have many crystals?”
Bai Qingqing felt baffled as well. Seeing that Mitch.e.l.l didn’t seem to be lying and recalling how the soul crystals Winston found were also mixed up, she barely got herself to calm down.
At this moment, a hissing sound rang out from outside.
Bai Qingqing’s ears perked up. Since even she could hear it, then Mitch.e.l.l was able to hear it clearly as well. His countenance changed drastically.
Mitch.e.l.l immediately got up and ran out.
Not long later, he returned with a dead snake.
“Your mate is really capable. To think that he controlled wild snakes to find this place!” Mitch.e.l.l threw the dead snake fiercely onto the ground, his gaze changing repeatedly.
He had almost forgotten that beastmen above four stripes were kings. Since they could control beastmen of the same tribe of a lower level, they’d naturally be able to control wild beasts who were even weaker than beastmen.
