Beauty and the Beasts - Chapter 918
Chapter 918: Schizophrenia?
Bai Qingqing stared at Mitchell, feeling anxious and doubtful. At the same time, she didn’t forget to console An’an by patting her, thinking to herself curiously, Why did this scorpion beastman suddenly seem as if he has changed into another person?
He had a demonic, nefarious, and uninhibited outer appearance, but his disposition seemed righteous. The concern in his eyes even emitted a hint of gentleness and harmlessness.
An’an stopped crying very soon under Bai Qingqing’s consolation, grabbing onto her mommy’s clothes with great strength. Her little small hand was also covered with sticky blood.
The pity in “Mitchell’s” eyes grew even more intense.
An aroused scorpion beastman was easily angered and rough. However, he wasn’t a scorpion beastman. After using all of his strength to take control over this body; the brutality was still there, but it couldn’t affect him at all.
“Mitchell” assessed Bai Qingqing from top to bottom, then said in a gentle voice, “I won’t harm you. You’re fine now.”
Bai Qingqing felt even more surprised. She thought of her first encounter with the scorpion king when he had suddenly become easy to talk to.
For some reason, Bai Qingqing suddenly tried to call out, “Shuu?”
When he was easy to talk to the other time, this was how he introduced himself. He even revealed the scorpion king’s lethal secret.
“Mitchell” revealed an elated expression and nodded vigorously. “It’s me!”
Bai Qingqing’s expression shattered. So, he was schizophrenic?
However, she was logical and noticed the octahedral black crystal hanging around his neck. She then recalled the translucent crystal she had seen before and suddenly came up with a conjecture.
“It can’t be that you are…”
This guess was too unbelievable and Bai Qingqing didn’t dare to believe that. Her words got stuck in her throat.
“Mitchell” wore an expression as if he could die without any regrets, embracing Bai Qingqing into his arms. “It’s me, wolf beastman Shuu.”
Bai Qingqing completely stiffened up.
To think that… it was real.
Shuu really died without any regrets to have left a deep impression in the heart of the female he loved. It was an honor that many males who had become mates with females never get.
Initially, he wasn’t planning on revealing his identity to Bai Qingqing. Firstly, it was because he was worried that it’d bring her unneeded grief. Secondly, he was worried that he was delusional and Bai Qingqing had long forgotten about him.
Being able to use the scorpion king’s body to touch the female he dreamed of, Shuu felt so touched that he wanted to cry. However, this scorpion beastman’s body was lacking in tear glands, and even though his eyes felt sore, not a single tear fell.
Bai Qingqing came back to her senses and said anxiously, “Quickly send me out!”
Shuu let go of her, his expression seeming to struggle.
“I… can’t do that.” Even though he had died, Shuu still couldn’t bear to part with her. He could only see her by letting her be by the scorpion beastman’s side.
Moreover, Shuu was just a soul. It was true that he wasn’t able to bring Bai Qingqing away from this extremely mysterious underground palace. It wouldn’t be long before he lost control over this body due to the insufficient energy level.
In that instant, the scorpion beastman would definitely crush his soul.
He’d only be able to speak with Bai Qingqing for longer by sitting like this.
Bai Qingqing didn’t think much into it and only thought that Shuu was unable to do it. Her body collapsed, and only then did she feel the pain coming from her wounds.
Shuu picked up the animal skin that Mitchell had planned on letting Bai Qingqing use as a blanket and pressed it onto her wound. What Bai Qingqing found more unbearable was the cold. She immediately used the animal skin to wrap herself and An’an tightly.
“Are you cold? I’ll carry you to the fire to warm up.” As Shuu said this, he reached out to carry her. However, he didn’t manage to do that despite exerting strength.
Bai Qingqing quickly stood up by herself, walked over to the fire, and squatted down beside it. The warm firelight shone on her face, dissipating some of the terror in her heart.
Shuu looked a little awkward and slowly walked over to the fire, sitting down by her side.
Bai Qingqing felt a little uncomfortable and only bore with it and didn’t avoid him at the thought of how this was Shuu.
