“Are you looking for that wolf boy?”
A woman’s cold and sweet voice suddenly came from her ears.
Hexi was startled, then she found that the white snake beastkin drooped down from above, and she didn’t notice it.
Seeing the vigilant look on Hexi’s face, the beastkin quickly said, “I’m not following you, it’s just that we white snakes don’t like to owe favors. If you want to find the wolf boy, come with me.”
After weighing it, Hexi quickly followed the pace of the beastkin.
Following behind the white snake banshee, Hexi found out that the beastkin was very fast. Her lower body morphed into a snake shape. When she passed through all places, there was no sound at all. No wonder Hexi didn’t notice her just now.
Soon, the beastkin took Hexi to a strange place.
It was only then that Hexi knew that there was not only the first underground floor, but also the second underground floor in this dark palace.
It was just that the entrance to the second underground floor was covered up, so she didn’t notice it at all.
The second underground floor was empty and dark. Even the roar of the beast could not be heard.
The white snake beastkin whispered, “It’s this place. The beastkins with the highest talent bloodline are detained here, but many beastkins have been tortured to death by them. The wolf boy you are looking for is the only one left now. Hehe. …but I’m afraid he is not far from death.”
When the beastkin laughed, her voice was indescribably sad.
Hexi frowned slightly, and a crystal stone for lighting appeared in his hand.
Soon, she saw the scene that made her gasp in shock.
On the ice-cold green stone ground not far away, a boy was casually left on the ground.
Probably because of the unusually hidden and sturdy cell, no one was guarding it at all, and there were no chains on the boy.
However, Hexi knew that even if all the doors here were opened at this moment, the boy probably wouldn’t be able to escape.
The young man was half naked. His silver-white hair scattered behind him. The skin on his body was even more wrinkled as well as full of pitted scars.
The only thing that could tell the boy’s actual appearance was that face, the young man’s face.
Hexi recognized at a glance that it was Wu Qi, who gave her his vital jade pendant and considered her as his master.
“Brother, brother—!” Xiao Li couldn’t hold it any longer. She jumped out of the void and rushed toward the young man on the ground.
The appearance of Xiao Li surprised both the beastkin and Hexi.
Hexi was worried about Xiao Li’s safety. After all, everyone who was detained and tortured here was beastkins, so she knew how dangerous it was for Xiao Li.
And the beastkin saw through Xiao Li’s true identity at a glance. It was a rarer than that wolf cub – a nine-tailed silver fox?!
Xiao Li pushed the unconscious young man several times, but he showed no sign of awake at all.
She looked at Hexi anxiously and cried, “Miss, what’s wrong with him? Is he dead?”
Hexi quickly came to Wu Qi’s side, took the pulse of his hand, and then frowned tightly.
Wu Qi’s condition was worse than he looked, all the beastkin power and life source in his body seemed to be hollowed out.
He was obviously just a young beast that had just grown up, but his physical condition seemed to be an old beastkin, struggling at a dying state.
Hexi took out the spirit healing pill mixed with Ninth Secluded Spirit Spring and fed them to Wu Qi, then she took out the silver needle and gently stimulated his acupoints to promote the absorption.
Wu Qi let out a low moan and opened his eyes, but his weak eyes were quickly closed again.
