Chapter 365: Coming to an End

Curtis’s acute senses made him jump forward and avoid a fatal blow. When he turned around, he ferociously pounced at and finished off the eagle beastman attacking him with one bite.
[Bai Qingqing is fake, we’ve been duped!] An abnormally sharp eagle screech rang from inside the cave.
The eagle beastmen were shocked. One of them said: [This was indeed Muir and that snake beastman’s plot. Everyone, retreat immediately!]
You wish to leave? I’m afraid it’s too late.
Curtis focused his gaze and launched a more ferocious attack yet.
During the duel, the snake and eagles were extremely close, causing many injuries to Curtis’s body. But at the same time, it also meant that it wasn’t as easy for the eagle beastmen to escape anymore.
With a sweep of his tail, several eagle beastmen were sent flying, including that eagle beastman that was flying the highest. The next moment, Curtis bit the eagle nearest to him.
His speed was so fast that it was hard to even catch a glimpse of his shadow. Only the cries of the eagle beastmen rang continuously.
Since God knows when a gray fog had spread throughout the mountains, and the temperature was speedily increasing. The entire mountain was like a large furnace.
The gigantic snake slithered from the cave with his bloodied body. Corpses were strewn throughout the land, and the world before his eyes had already transformed into a sea of fire. Even from far away, one could hear the sizzling sounds of burning.
During the hot season, even a spark could cause a fire in the mountains, much less when oil was poured upon it?
The flames spread upwards in a vigorous manner, making it difficult for even the birds in the forests to make their escape, for by the time they flew up into the skies they started burning from the high temperature, causing them to fall into the forest and add to the combustible material.
Curtis squirmed up the mountain, a red glow in the depths of his black eyes, blurring out his slim and long pupils.
Seeing that there was nowhere he could escape to, Curtis slithered one round around the trees, before stopping next to a short and extremely fat tree.
This tree was rather special—the lower portion of its tree trunk was thin and its top was thick, resembling a lollipop.
Curtis raised his snake’s tail and snapped the branch at the thickest part of the tree trunk. A large amount of transparent resin instantly seeped out from the white intersection, reflecting the glow of the fire from the opposite.
The resin accumulated and grew to occupy a larger and larger area, hanging heavily in the air. Then, finally unable to overcome the weight, it came crashing down.
Curtis transformed into his human form completely and curled up his body like a snake.
When it fell, Curtis was completely surrounded by the cylindrical-shaped resin.
The resin solidified under the high temperature, and very quickly, it was drowned in the fire.
Bai Qingqing gasped in pain as the rock she was using to smash the pine nuts landed on her finger, causing her so much pain that her face wrinkled up into a bun.
What’s going on? Chest feels so stuffy. And what’s with that terrible sensation all of a sudden?
Bai Qingqing stared dazedly at the finger that had turned red from being smacked by the rock, tears suddenly welling up in her eyes for no reason and quietly moistening her cheeks.
She was in a half-kneeling-half-sitting position on the ground, her large tummy making it difficult for her to bend over.
With much difficulty, she looked at the snake tattoo on her ankle. No idea if it was her hallucination or if she was too near to a source of fire, but she felt a fiery sensation at her ankle.
Bai Qingqing felt like her heart was emptied and bottomless.
Bella was seated by the river as she ate the roast meat. Baby birds had a high level of fat content, and when she took a bite from it, unexpectedly, one drop of oil fell upon her body.
Too lazy to go back and change, she asked Alva to help her retrieve her clothes, before changing into a clean set by the riverside.
“Hey, hurry up and wash my clothes for me.”
A piece of animal skin that smelled of food landed smack in Bai Qingqing’s face, the fur pricking at her eyes making tears slip down her face continuously.
Bai Qingqing raised a hand to pry that animal skin away from her face and immediately got to her feet.
“F*ck you! Scram!”
Bai Qingqing threw the clothes at Bella. The latter let out a shrill scream, before hiding behind Alva. That piece of clothing landed in the water and sunk in very quickly.
