After saying that, Parker transformed into his leopard form and darted out from the tree hole.
Bai Qingqing squeezed further against the snake body, touching him and saying in a trembling voice, “Curtis?”
Quite a while later, the python moved his body and made two hissing sounds.
This tiny bit of movement caused Bai Qingqing to feel a lot more at ease.
The leopard pounced on the scorpion beastman on the tree trunk, tossing him to the ground, then immediately darted into the tree trunk. After a round of fighting, a battered scorpion was thrown out from the tree hole.
After dealing with the threat on the tree, Parker stood under the tree, fending off the scorpion beastmen that wanted to get close.
The tiger beastmen had the advantage of numbers and the support of a strong beastman, so they gradually gained the upper hand.
The scorpion beastmen were clearly heading toward defeat.
Not long later, the scorpion tribe left behind half of their comrades’ corpses while fleeing in bitter defeat.
The tiger beastmen’s agitated roars of victory resounded throughout the forest in the mountain.
Bai Qingqing was elated. She got up and walked over to the tree hole’s entrance, looking down.
The leopard cubs grabbed tightly onto Bai Qingqing’s legs, crying out softly.
Bai Qingqing squatted down to hug them, saying, “It’s alright now. Children, don’t be scared.”
The leopard cubs licked their mother’s hand. It wasn’t known who was the one consoling the other.
The tiger village had also lost a few of their tribesmen. They cleaned up the battlefield and gathered on empty land.
“The sneak attack in the morning must be a cover for this infiltration. The scorpion tribe is too sly,” said a tiger beastman, and the others agreed.
“We’ll have to clean up all the snow in the village, preventing them from sneaking in like this again,” said another beastman.
The tribal head looked at Winston and suddenly spoke up, “Everyone’s words make sense, but in this infiltration, they targeted Bai Qingqing’s tree hole. It seems that they were here for her?”
Winston threw the tribal head a glance, not hiding anything. “That’s right.”
The tiger beastmen immediately sank into silence. It was inevitable that there’d be complaints.
She wasn’t a female from the tribe, and she had caused them to suffer. This also caused their females to be exposed to danger.
All the tiger beastmen looked toward the tribal head, who spoke up again.
“We still have females and children to protect in our village. This is too dangerous for them. This…”
Before the tribal head finished his words, he swallowed back the rest of his sentence under Winston’s dangerous gaze, feeling bad.
Females were too frail. Chasing a female out of the village in the cold season would be no different from taking her life.
Winston took a look in the direction of Bai Qingqing’s tree hole, saying, “We can leave. But in the future, you guys won’t have any affiliation with me anymore.”
All the tiger beastmen held their breaths.
Winston said “we can leave,” and not that they had chased Bai Qingqing away. This was enough to give them a shock.
If they were to chase away the king of a tribe, they wouldn’t be chasing Bai Qingqing away. Instead, their entire village would be chased out by the tiger tribe.
The tribal head said, agitated, “That can’t do! You’re our king! How can you abandon us?”
Winston threw them a mocking glance, saying resolutely, “She’s a female that I want to protect. I’ll go wherever she goes. You guys can make your decision.”
The tribal head and the other tiger beastmen exchanged a few glances and eventually said, “Alright, we won’t chase her away. Please stay.”
“Then, quickly clear the snow. I don’t wish to see such an oversight happening again.” After Winston said that, he turned and headed for Bai Qingqing’s residence.
Bai Qingqing leaned at the tree hole’s entrance, hearing the entire conversation clearly and feeling gloomy.
Why was Jean so lucky? She hadn’t encountered any danger despite living for ten years on land. She must have been too unrestrained. She’d have to try to spend more time indoors in the future.
