Hexi took a deep breath, walked slowly to the boy’s side, and slowly squatted down in front of him.
The two similar pairs of phoenix eyes looked at each other, and the purple lights were flickering.
Hexi whispered in a soft tone like she never did it before, “Good boy, sit still and let me see, okay?”
The boy tilted his head and made an inexplicable sound from his throat. Then, like a well-behaved shepherd dog, he squatted with his legs and hands on his chest.
His instinctive reaction made Hexi’s heart sore. Even though he was only Nalan Hexi’s younger brother, seeing his situation, Hexi actually felt distressed.
She didn’t hesitate any more and checked the structure of the helmet.
With just one look, Hexi’s eyes surged with killing intent.
Nalan Zhengze is really sinister and vicious enough. The helmet on his head has a fine needle connected to his brain nerve.
If the helmet is removed forcibly, the needle will pierce the boy’s baihui acupoint, causing him to bleed and die instantly. Even if I’m a miracle healer, I may not be able to save him in time.
Moreover, fortunately, when Nalan Zhengze was here just now, Nangong Yu stopped me from acting rashly.
Because there is a secret array in this helmet, the control js probably in the hands of Nalan Zhengze. As soon as there is a sudden change, Nalan Zhengze is likely to activate the array and let the young boy die together with him.
Hehe, what a vicious Doctor Nalan.
Hexi didn’t dislike the dirty smell of the boy at all. She patted him on the shoulder lightly, and then took out a silver needle.
The silver needle quickly pierced into the helmet several times. After a while, the helmet made a clicking sound.
The needle was ejected upward, and it pierced the top of the cave.
The helmet that was originally covered on the young boy’s head split in half and fell to the ground.
Nangong Yu took the illuminated crystal stone and let the light shined on the young boy’s face.
It was a pale face without a trace of blood. Due to the squeezing of the helmet, this face looked extremely thin, but it could not conceal the outstanding facial features and delicate features of the young boy.
Although this face was not so handsome that it would make everyone in the country move, it was 50% similar to Hexi’s appearance as a man.
Nangong Yu didn’t even have to guess. This should be Nalan Hexi’s real brother.
Hexi stared at the young boy in front of him blankly.
The young man seemed to be a little uncomfortable with the heavy object on his face being removed. His dirty hands kept scratching his own face.
There was a whining sound in his mouth, which sounded like a little puppy.
Hexi reached out and pressed his hand, and said hoarsely, “Don’t move.”
She condensed pure water spiritual power in her palm. It slowly cleansed the mud and food waste on the young man’s hand.
The clean hand looked as pale as his face, thin and skinny.
What was more frightening was that on these hands, there were all fine and dense scars. Some had have not even healed, and they had become red and swollen due to infection.
When she first saw the scars on the young man’s wrist, she initially thought it was all caused by iron chains. Now she discovered that this wasn’t a strangling mark, but… but it was cut by a sharp blade.
Hexi gently stroked the boy’s red and swollen scars, and she asked in a low voice, “Does it hurt?”
The boy seemed to feel her depressed mood, and he immediately made a whining sound.
Then, he made a move that shocked Hexi.
