Chapter 519: The Leopard Clan’s Secret
“He keeps the human-beast hybrids in cages behind the door and sucks their blood regularly every day,” said Xiao Hua who could not help shaking as he remembered the scene.
“You two are able to change your bodies too. So why doesn’t Qiu Sen suck your blood?” Yun Jiuge was mystified. These two human-beast hybrids in front of her eyes were absolutely of a high caliber.
“How do you know we’re able to change our bodies?”
“You’re mistaken. We’re unable to.”
Xiao Hua and Da’er spoke in unison.
“You don’t have to lie to me. I can see the golden light on your bodies with my own eyes,” said Yun Jiuge. Then she pointed to Xiao Hua’s chest and Da’er’s ears as she said, “Your golden light is here.”
The faces of Xiao Hua and Da’er suddenly tensed. In the next moment, they abruptly launched an attack on Yun Jiuge.
Except that before they could get close to Yun Jiuge, they were already sent flying by a powerful force and brutally struck against the mud wall.
“Behave yourselves or else I’ll break your necks,” Zi Shang said as he squeezed the joints of his fingers and walked out of the shadows. He stood beside Yun Jiuge like an immovable mountain.
Xiao Hua and Da’er looked at Zi Shang with mixed expressions. The blow earlier told them that this man was extraordinarily strong and absolutely impossible to overcome.
“You don’t have to be too nervous. I bear you no ill will. The Demon Qi is currently spreading everywhere. Only the golden light can save you human-beast hybrids. Do you know how the golden light in your bodies comes about?” Yun Jiuge asked directly.
“We don’t know how the golden light in our bodies comes about.” Xiao Hua and Da’er shook their heads at the same time.
After he and Da’er were intercepted by Qiu Sen and taken to the Death Swamp, they were injected directly with the Devil Stone by Qiu Sen and turned into gray-skinned puppets.
This type of gray-skinned puppets had extraordinary strength and were fearless of death. But they could not use Devil Stone tools.
The next day, when Xiao Hua and Da’er had become puppets, they were able to restore their consciousness with the inexplicable awakening of the golden light. So he could not provide any valid clues as well.
“If you think of any clues, just inform me in time.” Yun Jiuge also did not expect Xiao Hua and Da’er to immediately tell her the secret of the golden light.
If they knew the source of the golden light, they would not be so weak. They would at least be at A’dai’s level.
“Yes,” Xiao Hua and Da’er replied in a hurry.
“How are the clan members in your tribes?” Yun Jiuge wanted to take them all to the city Zi Shang had built. Perhaps the other clan members also had the golden light!
“The clan members of our tribe are still in their original encampment,” answered Xiao Hua. He guessed Yun Jiuge’s idea and immediately said, “I’m willing to represent them and pledge our loyalty to you. All you need to do is to give them a safe place and a little food.”
Xiao Hua could feel that the Yun Jiuge in front of him was different from the Divine Envoy and the others.
The Divine Envoy looked at them as if he were looking at ants. But the look in Yun Jiuge’s eyes was very peaceful.
“Miss Yun, I’m willing to pledge our loyalty to you on behalf of the Lizard-like therianthrope Clan, with the same conditions as the Leopard Clan,” Da’er said solemnly.
“I’ll agree to your requests. In fact, we’ve recently built a city, and you can take your people there,” Yun Jiuge said.
“But we only have two hours of consciousness a day,” Xiao Hua said with a bitter smile, pointing to his chest, where the golden light was fading at the moment.
“Me too, so I can only ask you to send someone to pick them up. This is the Clan Leader’s token. You just need to show it to my clan, and they’ll go with you.” Da’er took off a black leather rope which hung on his chest. A string of gray colored scales were on it.
Da’er bit and broke the skin on his index finger to apply blood on the scales. The gray colored scales immediately turned a blue color.
Whereas Xiao Hua took off his bracelet, with a white tooth hanging on it.
He also rubbed some blood on the teeth, and the teeth turned black.
“Rest assured that I’ll send the Eagle Clan to pick them up,” Yun Jiuge said as she received the two people’s tokens.
“Thank you, Miss Yun,” Xiao Hua and Da’er solemnly thanked her.
“Oh, that’s right, I’ve one more thing to ask you.” Yun Jiuge recounted the incident with the human-wolf hybrids. Then she took out the arrowhead made from the Devil Stone and asked, “Do you know what’s going on?”
Xiao Hua picked up the Devil Stone arrowhead to take a closer look and said, “I recall that when the Divine Envoy first appeared in the human-wolf hybrid clan’s area, the human-wolf hybrids worshipped the Divine Envoy a lot.
Later, they came down with a serious bout of illness and the Divine Envoy gave the adults Gaga Grass to cure them. Then they took the initiative to go to the depths of the grassland to collect iron ore. I don’t know what happened after.”
It seemed that the prerequisite for consuming Gaga Grass with Demon Qi was to fervently worship Nangong Yue.
Yun Jiuge secretly noted to herself that the pieces of the picture were falling into place this way.
“Besides Qiu Sen, have you ever seen anyone next to the Divine Envoy?” Zi Shang chipped in and asked.
“No, in fact, we’ve never seen the Divine Envoy’s true face. She always wears a large white cloak and her face is covered with a veil,” Xiao Hua’s voice became weaker and weaker. The gray energy on his face spread and he turned back into the appearance of a puppet again.
Yun Jiuge put Xiao Hua and Da’er into the Spiritual Beast Bag and asked Zi Shang, “I wonder how Nangong Li and Baili Moyun are?” She always had an ominous hunch in her heart.
“Whatever happens to them, they’ve brought it upon themselves.” They were the ones who chose to believe Nangong Yue and not them.
“I hope they’re still alive.” No matter what happened, they used to be friends in the past. Yun Jiuge did not want them to end up becoming Nangong Yue’s puppets.
The next morning, Yun Jiuge and Zi Shang returned to the bottom of the steep cliff from before and found that Advisor Jun and A’gu had disappeared.
But the two men left behind clues to show that they had already returned to Eagle Cliff.
“Do we go back to Eagle Cliff or the city?” Zi Shang asked Yun Jiuge.
“Let’s go back to the city!” Yun Jiuge thought about it and decided to go back to the city, where it was her territory.
“That’s the way.” Zi Shang had an expression that said he taught her well.
A boss should not have to run around all day. Of course she should wait for her subordinates to come to her.
After two hours, Yun Jiuge and Zi Shang came to the site of the built city.
From a distance, the towering city walls were very striking. Eagle Clan members could be seen flying back and forth on the hill in the middle. Many human-snake hybrids were at the side of the city walls, helping to build houses.
Before, Elder Bai and Meng thought that Zi Shang would need a long time to build the city. They did not expect it to take shape within a few days. The two major clans immediately came over to dominate the positions.
“Miss Yun, you’re back.” A’ze rushed over when he saw them from afar.
“Oh, by the way, how are Advisor Jun and A’gu?” Yun Jiuge asked.
“They’re fine and recuperating from their injuries at Eagle Cliff. Did you catch A’hui, the traitor?” A’ze asked excitedly.
“We caught him. Are Elder Bai and Meng here?” Yun Jiuge asked again.
“They’re all in the mountains. I’ll take you there!” A’ze said.
“No need. Go back first and ask Elder Bai and Meng to gather all the human-beast hybrids together. I’ve something to say to them.” Yun Jiuge had decided to brief them all on the matter of the human-wolf hybrids after she had gathered everyone together.
“Well, in that case, I’ll go now.” A’ze flapped his wings and flew back.
