Chapter 75: Increasing Suspicions
It was precisely when Sima You Yue and the rest were fighting with the Fire Wolf Pack that the man who had led the Fire Wolf Pack to them crossed over the mountain top with haste. He ran towards another mountain top, quickly linking up with his other teammates.
"Huang Si, how was it?" The people who were waiting there asked when they saw their own teammate come back.
"By the time I ran off, Sima You Yue and the others had already been encircled by the pack of Fire Wolves." Huang Si tore off a piece of talisman that was pasted on his body and handed it over to the black clothed man, saying, "Boss, what is this thing? After pasting it on, my speed increased by many times, as if this pair of legs weren't mine."
"You don't have to ask what it is." The black clothed man kept the talisman, saying, "That Fire Wolf Pack really surrounded them completely?"
"Really, boss!" Huang Si guaranteed, "It was even thirty to forty Fire Wolves! Even if that group of them wasn't weak, they wouldn’t be able to match up to that many Fire Wolves."
"That would be good if it really happened." That black clothed man said, "Sigh, even though they lost their lives, being unable to kill that waste with my own hands really fills me with regret!"
"Boss, do we need to go and check out how they died?" Huang Si asked.
"No need." The black clothed man shook his head, saying, "If we happen to encounter that Wolf Pack, we will end up in a lot of trouble. Furthermore, the scent of blood would easily attract other Spirit Beasts nearby. Since we know that it was impossible for them to have survived, we have no need to place ourselves in danger."
"Boss is right."
"We have also come here to fulfill a mission. Since we've settled Sima You Yue, we should go and fulfill our own mission! Let's go." The black clothed man led his own team towards another mountain top when he finished speaking.
On the other side, Ouyang Fei and the others kept their contracted Spirit Beasts into their interspatial rings, working together to leave the forest that they had just battled in.
After moving for quite a while, they arrived at a river side. Looking at the empty space beside the river, Sima You Yue said, "This place should be far enough from the battleground earlier, we should stay here and wash our wounds."
"Okay." Wei Zi Qi supported Fatty Qu as he sat down on a large rock by the riverbed and he sat down on the side.
Although they had already eaten the medicine that Sima You Yue had given them, a healing pill of the first rank would take effect slowly and the effects were not that great either. It was not possible for their wounds to close up after such a short period of time.
Ouyang Fei came to the riverside and immediately took off his outer garment and began to wash the wounds on the upper half of his body. Sima You Yue glanced at him and realised his body had actually been marred by a criss cross of scars.
Sima You Yue took out a basin and went to the side of the river to fill it up with water. She walked over to Fatty Qu and stretched out a hand to strip him of his clothes.
"Ahh- You Yue, what do you want to do?!" Fatty Qu saw that Sima You Yue was stripping him and unconsciously shrieked as he used both hands to cover his chest.
Sima You Yue's face was completely black, what did this guy react so exaggeratedly for?!
"If you feel that it's not painful for you to continue pulling on your wounds, I don't mind if you continue to hug yourself like that." As she said this, she glanced over at the wounds on Fatty Qu's body.
It was only after he heard what Sima You Yue said that he recalled the wounds on his body. His actions just now caused his wounds to hurt even more, causing him to cry out in pain because he couldn't take it any longer.
Sima You Yue pulled down his hands and used a pair of scissors to shred the clothed on his body, revealing the wounds on his shoulder and back.
Of course, that pair of scissors was something that Ling Long had changed into extremely reluctantly. She really could not understand. Why was her master so insistent on her changing into a weird and crazy object that didn't have any use?
For the sake of convenience, Sima You Yue completely cut apart Fatty Qu's clothes before taking out a piece of cotton cloth, wetting it with the water in the basin. After she had completely washed away the bloodstains around his wound, she took out a bottle of powdered medicine and sprinkled it evenly across his wound. She finally used a strip of cloth to wrap him up.
Wei Zi Qi came back from the riverside after washing the bloodstains off his body. When he say Sima You Yue's skilled actions, he teased, "I didn't expect that You Yue would be so skilled at wrapping up wounds."
"I used to injure myself a lot in the past." Sima You Yue replied.
The past that she spoke of was of the time when she always got injured when she was an assassin, but Fatty Qu and the other understood it as a past where he had always been beaten up by the people by Murong An's side.
"You Yue, don't worry, if anyone dares to beat you up in the future, this fatty will be the first one to defend you!" Fatty Qu said as he looked at the strip of cloth on his arm.
Sima You Yue smiled and walked behind him. She sprinkled some medicinal powder on the wound on his back before carefully wrapping it up.
"Done." Sima You Yue bound it well and said, "This medicinal powder is very useful for treating wounds. When paired with pills, the effects are very good. Ouyang Fei, you all have many wounds on your body, I'll also help you wrap them up."
"I can do it myself." Ouyang Fei was not too used to others working on his own body and took the pill bottle to wrap his own wounds. However, because he had some wounds on his shoulders, he had no choice by to let him help.
After Sima You Yue had finished helping Wei Zi Qi and Bei Gong Tang to wrap the wounds on their bodies, Fatty Qu thought of something before staring at Sima You Yue strangely.
"What's up with you? Why are you looking at me like that?" Sima You Yue felt a bit scared under Fatty Qu's gaze.
"You Yue, we're all injured but you're perfectly fine." Fatty Qu said.
After he said this, Wei Zi Qi, Bei Gong Tang and Ouyang Fei also realised it. They had all sustained injuries, but Sima You Yue did not have a single scratch!
"Cough cough, this…" Sima You Yue did not know how to answer and pretended to cough twice.
"Haha, we were even so worried earlier that bringing you to the mountain would be too dangerous for you. It turned out that you're someone who hides things deeply!" Wei Zi Qi suddenly said with a big laugh.
"Hehe…" Sima You Yue touched her nose and smiled.
"You're very strong." Ouyang Fei said as he looked at Sima You Yue.
When they were fighting, he had realised that Sima You Yue was extremely accurate each time he killed the Fire Wolves. Although he was had understood the weak points of those Fire Wolves, this was something that could only be exploited by his own strength.
"I feel that there's something fishy towards what just happened to us." Bei Gong Tang said.
"You realised it too?" Ouyang Fei looked at Bei Gong Tang. It seemed that he was not the only one who thought something was off.
"What's fishy about it?" Fatty Qu looked at the few of them with confusion.
"Everything about it is fishy." Wei Zi QI said.
"Huh? What is?"
Sima You Yue looked at how baffled Fatty Qu was and said, "Don't you think the appearance of that person was very strange?"
"What's so strange about that person?" Fatty Qu asked.
Sima You Yue looked at him with a contemptuous expression, this guy still didn't understand even though she had explained it like this!
"Fatty, that person today… it looks like his strength should more or less be on par with ours. It is even possible that it hasn't reached our level, so why would he come to Pu Luo Mountain Range, that is filled with so much danger? What about his companions?" Wei Zi Qi explained patiently.
Fatty Qu blinked and said, "Hearing your explanation, it really does seem weird."
"This is not the only thing weird about it!" Sima You Yue smiled lightly as her eyes flashed with a cold light.
