Chapter 441 Wifey, need my help?
Listening to Xia Zhi Qing’s words, Baili Hong Zhuang’s and others brows wrinkled.
If they thought about it, the frequency of Wicked (demonic beast) attacks today was really too high.
They had also fought Wicked (demonic beast) the previous day, but the number had been few. The number of attacks today was a lot larger than yesterdays.
Although they had now entered the true depths of the mountains and it was inevitable for the number of encounters with Wicked (demonic beast) increasing, the number right now was too exaggerated.
They had been this deep before, but the number of Wicked (demonic beast) had been far from the current number.
“Suddenly there are too many Wicked (demonic beasts), this is weird,” her dark phoenix-like eyes flashed with contemplation, Baili Hong Zhuang thought of the reason why the number of attacks was so abnormally high. She had a kind of intuition that things were not as simple as they thought.
“Master, when you were fighting with mercenaries of that mercenary group, I discovered something very strange,” Xiao Bai suddenly said.
Baili Hong Zhuang’s brows wrinkled even more as she frowned, “What weird thing?”
“I found that they were very keen to touch your clothes when they were fighting with you.”
Xiao Bai’s voice was filled with doubts. Since they had not fought, they could only watch on as others fought.
In the process of watching the fight, it noticed this.
[ T/N Even after 5000 chapters, I failed to discover what gender Xiao Bai and Xiao Hei were so I will use gender-neutral for them. ]
“Yes, Master, I too noticed this.” Xiao Hei nodded.
“Clothes?” Baili Hong Zhuang’s brows lifted slightly. It was reasonable to say that there was no need to touch the opponent’s clothes while fighting with swords…
She believed that Xiao Hei and Xiao Bai’s vision will never be misconstrued, and recalled that the two mercenaries she had engaged in battle with had actually touched her clothes with their hands.
Suddenly, a thought flashed in Baili Hong Zhuang’s mind, faintly guessing a possibility in her heart.
“Could it be… that they left behind some kind of special material on us?”
Xiao Hei and Xiao Bai looked at each other. They didn’t know what their master was referring to.
As a doctor, Baili Hong Zhuang was most sensitive to this kind of thing. In this world, there were a lot of odorless and colorless poisons that could kill people.
She too had a lot of means like this. Since she had these means, then the mercenary group may have it too.
Di Bei Chen looked at the constantly changing expressions on Baili Hong Zhuang’s face and softly asked, “Did lady find something?”
Baili Hong Zhuang lifted her eyes to look at Di Bei Chen, “I have a guess, but I can’t be sure.”
Saying this, the corners of Baili Hong Zhuang’s mouth lifted in an ambiguous arc, “To verify that I am accurate, I need your help.”
“Oh?” Di Bei Chen’s brows raised, his eyes deep and bright, with an indulging smile he said, “Since wifey needs husband’s help, I will naturally not deny.”
“Your strength is the strongest, and it would be most convenient for you to do this.”
Baili Hong Zhuang smiled and told him her thoughts.
“You mean that our clothes had been smeared with some kind of special material by the mercenaries of the Vicious Flames Mercenary group, sot that it will attract Wicked (demonic beast)?” Di Bei Chen asked.
“Yes,” Baili Hong Zhuang nodded. “Don’t you think the frequency of attacks is too exaggerated?”
“Wifey is right.” Di Bei Chen smiled devilishly, his handsome face appearing both charming and elegant at the same time. “I’ll help lady determine if her guess is accurate.”
