Chapter 963: Precarious Night (4)
Parker and Winston felt as if the scorpion beastmen were endless, that there was no end to killing them.
Bai Qingqing was in the air and could see that in the places lit by the moonlight, more scorpions crawled out. It’d be weird if they could finish killing them.
The situation was precarious enough, but a gush of black spring shot up from the sand, frightening Bai Qingqing.
Upon a closer look, she realized that it wasn’t spring, but more wild scorpions. There were so many of them that they piled together and resembled a spring.
The densely-packed black dots could kill someone with trypophobia. As the scorpions gushed out, a black scorpion of an even greater size revealed himself.
Small scorpions were crawling all over his body like maggots. Bai Qingqing recognized him right away.
“Saint Zachary…” Bai Qingqing’s countenance instantly turned pale as joss papers.
Was he out to wipe them all out with this formation?
“Coo-coo?” Alva didn’t understand. Although he also felt that the big scorpion was very strong, both Winston and Parker were four-striped beastmen, so there shouldn’t be a need for them to be so terrified?
He only thought that Bai Qingqing was an easily scared female.
However, he noticed that Parker, who had the sharpest senses, had his hair all standing up. Even Winston was clearly keeping an eye over that direction, appearing extremely wary.
Mitch.e.l.l might leave a slim chance of survival to Bai Qingqing and the others, but Saint Zachary wouldn’t. He brought along even more scorpion beastmen and wild scorpions, clearly not intending to leave them any chances of survival.
Bai Qingqing looked at the densely-packed black dots on the sand and shouted loudly, “Parker, Winston, run quickly! Don’t get surrounded!”
If that were to happen, they wouldn’t be able to escape even if they wished to.
Parker and Winston had their sentimental attachments and feared death. When they saw that the situation wasn’t right, they immediately fled.
Bai Qingqing heaved a sigh of relief. Very soon, Muir and Curtis were surrounded by the scorpion beastmen. She started to worry for them as well.
How was the defense of this mysterious guy? He must be a scorpion beastman, right? He should be like Curtis, unafraid of being stung by wild scorpions, right?
However, the wild scorpions weren’t that important. The most dangerous one was Saint Zachary. He was crawling toward them.
“Look out! Saint Zachary is coming!”
Muir had his hands full with Curtis and didn’t have the energy to pay attention to his surroundings. He only knew that many scorpion beastmen had come. He had no chance of fleeing even if he wished to after hearing Bai Qingqing’s words.
Curtis had completely lost his rationality.
Saint Zachary had lost his control even more. He raised his scorpion tail and charged into the battlefield, his huge scorpion pincer going for the snake’s head.
Curtis’s eyes were filled with the enemy he was in a tussle with and didn’t notice the danger from the other side. Just as his head and body were about to be separated, he suddenly disappeared into the air.
Their battling speed was extremely fast and the lighting was dark. Bai Qingqing had no idea how she had managed to see Curtis’s dangerous situation clearly. By the time she reacted to things, she had already jumped off from Alva’s back while carrying the child.
Bai Qingqing calmed down in midair, thinking of how she had acted out of impulse.
An’an was still howling away. Could the current Curtis be summoned by her? It was one thing for her to put herself in danger, but she shouldn’t have jumped off together with An’an.
Bai Qingqing was attempting to turn and place An’an above her when she landed in an icy but gentle embrace.
Looking up, her eyes met a pair of eyes filled with deep adoration. Bai Qingqing was elated. Her body then jerked strongly as she landed on the ground with Curtis’s snake tail at the bottom.
Thankfully, Alva hadn’t flown too high; this height couldn’t hurt Curtis. He immediately got up and asked how she was.
“You’re awake! That’s great!”
Bai Qingqing circled her arms around Curtis’s neck. When she saw Saint Zachary charging over, she immediately pushed him away and said, “Saint Zachary is coming!”
