Chapter 521: The Blood Clue (1)
“You mean, Nangong Yue and Qiu Sen don’t know that Li Wei is here?” Zi Shang asked as he raised an eyebrow.
“They think that only Yun Weihai is here,” said Yun Jiuge. At present, apart from Yun Jiuge and Zi Shang, no one else knew that Yun Weihai was Li Wei’s reincarnation.
There was a huge difference between the two of them. Yun Weihai was just an Alchemist, but Li Wei was her Celestial Palace Guard. If Nangong Yue didn’t know his true identity, he was likely to underestimate him, hence keeping Li Wei safe.
If Yun Jiuge went to search for Li Wei openly, it would only attract Nangong Yue’s attention.
“I see,” Zi Shang said. He was very impressed by Yun Jiuge’s Divination Technique.
Yun Jiuge and Zi Shang went to an empty house and released Guo’er and Elder Rabbit. They wanted to check if they were injured.
Unexpectedly, once Elder Rabbit came out, he said angrily, “You lied to us.”
“I didn’t. You should have heard what I said in the square just now. A’hui didn’t intentionally want to catch you,” Yun Jiuge said rather helplessly. These rabbits were really sensitive and suspicious of others and became upset easily by small things.
“You said you would rescue our clan members, where are they now?” Elder Rabbit continued to question her.
“Here,” Yun Jiuge said and released the Rabbit Clan Leader.
“Clan Leader!” Elder Rabbit shouted.
“Elder!” The Rabbit Clan Leader shouted back.
The two old rabbits hugged each other excitedly, and then wept, not caring about their image.
“Miss Yun, how is A’gu?” Guo’er ran to Yun Jiuge’s side and asked with red eyes.
While she was being taken away, she saw that A’gu had been fallen to the bottom of the cliff and was seriously injured.
“He’s fine. Now, he’s recovering at Eagle Cliff. If you want to see him, I’ll ask A’ze to send you over,” Yun Jiuge said while helping Guo’er to check her pulse. Fortunately, Guo’er’s was in good health, and there was no problem with the baby in her stomach as well.
Guo’er looked at her Clan Leader and Elder hesitantly then shook her head. She said, “I’ll go see A’gu later!” The Elder greatly misunderstood Miss Yun and she was worried that the Elder would just leave with the other clan members in anger. It was better for her to stay and help persuade him.
Yun Jiuge looked at the Rabbit Clan Leader and the Elder muttering together and said, “If you don’t want to stay, I won’t force you to. If you’ve any questions, just ask Elder Bai.”
With that, she turned and walked out of the room.
“You’re too nice to them,” Zi Shang said with an unhappy expression on his face. Those rabbits couldn’t appreciate what was good for them and should have been locked up and taught a lesson, or even be used for research.
“There are so many transformed human-beast hybrids, so we don’t necessarily need them. When A’dai wakes up, we’ll naturally know the secret of the Golden Light,” Yun Jiuge said. If the only answer lay with the human-rabbit hybrids, Yun Jiuge would not hesitate to deal with them. But as of now, she didn’t want to play the bad guy.
“Okay!” Zi Shang said. He had originally wanted to make things difficult for the human-rabbit hybrids.
Now that he saw that Yun Jiuge really didn’t mind at all, he dispelled this idea.
Yun Jiuge came to the parlor in the city and told A’ze who was guarding outside, “A’ze, call Elder Bai over.”
“Okay,” A’ze said nodded. He quickly called over Elder Bai.
“Miss Yun, have you saved the human-rabbit hybrid clan?” Elder Bai asked as she sat down. Advisor Jun had already told her that Guo’er was transformed.
He was looking forward to Yun Jiuge finding out the secret of the Golden Light from the human-rabbit hybrid clan so that the human-beast hybrid clan could be saved.
“I’ve rescued them, but they don’t know the secret of the Golden Light either. Now, we can only wait until A’dai wakes up to know the answer,” Yun Jiuge said. She was worried that Elder Bai would harm the human-rabbit hybrids and helped them put in a good word.
“Looks like we’ve to rely on our Prince!” Elder Bai said, feeling a slight pity but somewhat also inexplicably proud.
“Yes, we can only rely on him,” Yun Jiuge replied. Her affirmation only made Elder Bai even more proud, and he couldn’t wait to go out and announce this news.
“By the way, the Divine Envoy has set up a secret base in the Death Swamp to catch transformed human-beast hybrids. You must speed up the rescue of the human-beast hybrids. Also, send someone to escort the human-leopard hybrid clan and Lizard-like therianthropes back,” Yun Jiuge said, taking out Xiao Hua and Da’er’s tokens.
“Okay.” Elder Bai solemnly took the tokens and began to think about how to accomplish this task.
This mission was different from the rescue of the human-horse hybrid clan and human-cow hybrid clan as it was assigned by Yun Jiuge personally. If he didn’t execute the mission perfectly, he would be in trouble.
Yun Jiuge sent Elder Bai away and was about to rest when she heard A’ze saying that the Clan Leader and Elder of the human-rabbit hybrid clan were ready to see her.
“Let them come in,” Yun Jiuge said while nodding. The rabbits had discussed the matter quickly.
“Miss Yun, we’ve decided, and we hope to stay in Yun City,” said the Rabbit Clan Leader and Elder respectfully to Yun Jiuge as they walked in together.
“Alright, I’ll ask Meng to help you make arrangements,” Yun Jiuge said. Currently, Elder Bai led the human-eagle hybrid clan in managing external affairs while Meng led the human-snake hybrid clan in managing internal affairs. This was their reward for being the earliest to follow her.
“Miss Yun, previously, I was too emotional and thus a little disrespectful towards you. Please forgive me,” Elder Rabbit said guiltily.
“It’s fine. I understand,” Yun Jiuge said. She looked at them, waiting on anything else they wanted to say.
The Elder and Clan Leader looked at each other.
Then the Clan Leader stepped forward and said to Yun Jiuge, “Previously, you asked us about the origin of the Golden Light in our bodies. After carefully trying to remember, I recall that the ancestors had left us some clues.”
“What clues?” Yun Jiuge asked with raised eyebrows. These rabbits were indeed concealing something.
“Miss Yun, before telling you this clue, I hope that you can meet a few small requirements of our human-rabbit hybrid clan,” the Clan Leader said bravely.
“As long as they’re not outrageous requests, I’ll agree to them,” Yun Jiuge said. She was willing to accommodate them as long as they didn’t go too far.
“Firstly, I hope that we can choose a suitable territory in the city,” the Clan Leader cautiously said.
“You can only choose a territory that has not yet been occupied,” replied Yun Jiuge. She would not drive away the other human-beast hybrids just for them.
“Of course,” the Clan Leader answered quickly.
“Okay, what’s the second request?” Yun Jiuge asked. The Clan Leader didn’t look dumb and didn’t seem likely to make any outrageous demands.
“Secondly, I hope that you can accept Da Meng as your bodyguard. He’s the strongest warrior of our human-rabbit hybrid clan and the human-beast hybrid who can transform at the fastest speed. With him around, you’ll be safer,” said the Rabbit Clan Leader proudly as he mentioned Da Meng.
“Okay,” Yun Jiuge said and nodded. Da Meng did look like he was rather strong.
“Miss Yun, you’re really generous, and I thank you on behalf of the human-rabbit hybrid clan.”
“You only have these two requests?” Yun Jiuge asked in surprise. Even if they didn’t offer the Golden Light clues in exchange, she would still have agreed to these two small requests.
