Song Yangzhu wanted to find a place to stay for the time being. She was planning to cultivate while digging out the ancient tomb. But in this moment, a voice sounded.
Were there people talking in the depth of the snow mountain? Song Yangzhu looked behind in shock and saw two men carrying big bags. They had shot guns in their hands and they were walking towards her as they spoke. Two hunters? What were they doing there? Song Yangzhu didn’t head towards the tomb, she couldn’t expose it.
When Song Yangzhu spotted the two men, they also saw her. The two hunters said something to each other and headed towards her with their guns.
When they got close, Song Yangzhu saw that one of them was a white-skinned foreigner. He had a bulky build. The other man was Chinese, he was very short but sturdy. His face had many scars on it, which made him look very hideous.
They were obviously surprised to see Song Yangzhu there.
"Who are you? Why are you in the depth of the Mei Nei snow mountains?" the short man asked. He was vigilant, as though one wrong word and he would fire.
"Who are you guys?" Song Yangzhu rested easy. These men were probably really hunters. She could smell the blood in their bags.
But Song Yangzhu couldn’t understand why they were all the way there.
As though they felt Song Yangzhu posed no threat, the short man put the gun down and said, "I’m Jiang Chuanwu, this is my friend Ericson. We came here for hunting."
"Hunting." Song Yangzhu looked at the two men with confusion and suddenly said, "Did you come to hunt the snow fox?"
She was more and more certain they had come here to hunt the snow fox. Snow fox fur was very precious, and it was said that only the Mei Nei snow mountains had these animals. These animals were not only nationally protected, but also internationally.
Jiang Chuanwu’s expression didn’t look good but he still said, "Are they that easy to find? We just came here to hunt some regular animals."
Song Yangzhu didn’t continue asking, it didn’t concern her. It was good as long as they didn’t come for the tomb.
"What are you here for?" Jiang Chuanwu looked at Song Yangzhu confused. She was that pretty and young, yet she was alone in the depths of the snow mountain. It seemed eerie.
"I’m just hiking, but I got lost." She could no longer be bothered to talk to the two hunters, so she turned around and walked away. With them there, she couldn’t dig the tomb. She had to wait until they left before she could.
Jiang Chuanwu turned to the foreigner and said, "Ericson, do you believe her?"
The tall white guy looked at Jiang CHuanwu and smiled, "Mr. Chuanwu, the woman is really pretty."
Hearing this, Jiang CHuanwu thought about it and wanted to say something, but Ericson continued, "Mr. Chuanwu, we’ve been in this place for half a month but we still haven’t seen any snow foxes. I don’t think it’s worth it if we continue like this."
Jiang Chuanwu immediately knew what he meant. He was hired by Ericson, if they found the fox, he would get a large sum of money; if not, he would just be a tour guide.
He knew that Ericson wanted the woman, but he had his concerns. A young beautiful woman that dared to venture the depths of this mountain, he couldn’t believe that she didn’t have the means to protect herself.
"Mr Ericson, she’s no regular woman if she can wander in the depths of this mountain. There are many capable people in China. If she has an important background, then we-" Jiang Chuanwu said worriedly.
Ericson smiled, "We’d be sent to jail for poaching snow foxes. Now that she knows our purpose, if she reports us, then we would-" he didn’t finish the sentence.
Jiang Chuanwu knew what Ericson meant. He also longed for women, but he had heard about ancient martial arts and he knew there were a lot of masters. She might be one, since she dared to venture there herself.
Ericson waved a pouch and said, "I know what you’re worrying about, but this scent can make people weak, even lose their mind."
Jiang Chuanwu was shook and cursed. That guy had such thing. If he used it on him, he would be dead meat. It seemed that he needed to be warier of him.
Although he had these thoughts, Jiang Chuanwu didn’t show it and smiled, "That thing is not bad, but if we smelled it too, wouldn’t we be also disabled?"
"Don’t worry, I have the cure for it here." Ericson took out a green capsule and gave it to Jiang Chuanwu.
Seeing this, Ericson smiled and said, "Mr Chuanwu, I can let you go on that woman first.."
Hearing this, Jiang Chuanwu thought carefully. Was Ericson really that nice? It wasn’t like his cunning nature; thinking about this, Jiang Chuanwu became even warier.
Seeing this, Ericson quickly said, "Mr Chuanwu, don’t misunderstand me, I also have some conditions. I brought the scent and the cure. If you go on her first you must give me the short sword you found."
Hearing this, Jiang Chuanwu took out a short sword from his bag and said strangely, "You want this short sword?"
He had found it by the river yesterday, he didn’t understand why Ericson wanted that normal-looking sword.
"Yes, yes," Ericson said excitedly and even reached his hand to grab it.
Jiang Chuanwu put the sword away and said casually, "Mr Ericson, we don’t even have her yet. No need to rush."
"Oh, right, yeah." Ericson rubbed his hands.
Song Yangzhu found a place to shelter from the wind and cleaned it before setting up her tent.
Just when she finished setting up the tent, the two men were approaching it. Song Yangzhu immediately became vigilant. She didn’t want to talk to them, why were they here?
What Song Yangzhu didn’t expect was that they set their tents near hers. Song Yangzhu frowned. She decided to pack up her tent and leave. She wasn’t a very feisty person, but if they followed her again, they couldn’t blame her for her actions.
Before she came out, the man called Jiang Chuanwu came over and stood at the door saying, "Young girl, help us! There are a lot of beasts around the snow mountain. It’ll be safer if we stay together. We’ve made roasted rabbit meat, let’s eat together."
Song Yangzhu said with a cold face, "No need, I don’t like living with strangers. Since you guys like it here, I’ll move away."
"Hi, I’m Ericson. Nice to meet you." Ericson approached her politely and reached out his hand.
Song Yangzhu’s face was cold, as though she hadn’t seen his hand.
Ericson took back his hand awkwardly and passed over a cigarette to Jiang Chuanwu, before lighting up his own.
