Nero, having the forthright personality that even Boss Luo was impressed with, wiped out the food brought by the maid at the speed of the wind.
You Ye explained herself politely and apologetically, “I’m sorry, Miss Nero because it happens suddenly, so I can only use the leftover ingredients that were originally planned to be discarded last night. I hope you don’t mind… By the way, the kitchen salt is used up, so if the taste is too bland, you should dip it with some soy sauce… What? Is this vinegar? Sorry, I didn’t expect I would take the wrong one. I’m extremely sorry. It seems that I am still not familiar with Oriental seasonings. As a maid, I am disqualified. Let me change it for you…”
But the beer was pretty cold.
“…So, I offended your maid, right?”
Nero drank all the beer in one gulp. She looked at Boss Luo again smilingly after a satisfying hiccup.
“I remember Miss Nero said last time that if you come here again, it will be because you plan to take refuge…” Boss Luo skipped the topic that he didn’t need to be delved into.
“Hmm…Have I said anything like this?” Nero blinked and said with a grin, “It shouldn’t be.”
Luo Qiu smiled and said nothing.
Nero shrugged and took out a box. This box was given by Boss Luo last time to store souls.
When the box opened, dozens of glorious light balls rushed out and floated beside Nero, only to hear her suddenly say at this time, “Well, in fact, someone is hunting me down? Can you treat me a little bit, and then… let me hide for a while?”
After finishing speaking, a mouthful of blood overflowed from Nero’s mouth. As soon as she closed her eyes, she fell directly onto Luo Qiu’s body.
Recently, Boss Luo’s reaction had been getting better and better. He moved aside the moment Nero fell.
Hence, the Yama Knife’s master, one of the Divine Generals of the Michael Club, just crashed on the club’s floor.
“It seems your injury is serious.”
It just so happened that the maid came out holding a plate of food at this time. She looked at Nero, who was on the ground. She didn’t intend to help her up but said calmly, “She has been holding it in since the moment I came in. This guest is a stubborn person.”
Luo Qiu intercepted five of these floating spheres of light and then returned the rest to the box before saying, “Since we have received the transaction fee, let’s do business.”
As he said, Nero’s body floated. After Boss Luo circled Nero’s body, he stretched out his finger and pointed it on the center of Nero’s brow.
It was a light tap.
A circle of ripples began to spread from the center of her eyebrows and even reach her body. At the same time, a large amount of greenish-purple smoke began to emerge from Nero’s body.
Even in a coma, she showed a painful expression at this moment. Her body was sweating heavily because of the discharge.
The moment the greenish-black smoke was exhausted. A huge ferocious wolf head appeared in the air… This wolf head seemed unwilling to be wiped out like this. It suddenly roared and went crazy. It bit toward Luo Qiu.
Luo Qiu didn’t move. The wolf’s head phantom didn’t manage to inch in before getting dissipated directly in a cluster of black flames.
The maid merely pointed a finger at it. The black flame tails even remained in the air, like a photographic plate consisting only black and white.
“Master, this is a curse-like power… En, this energy feels sinister.”
The burning black flame finally returned to You Ye’s palm. The maid lightly squeezed her five fingers and extinguished the flame before whispering, “There is the residual energy of the so-called demon beast power of the eastern demon beast. Roughly speaking, eastern demon beast capable of injuring Miss Nero is likely at the Oriental Great Demon Beast level or greater demon beast with a special ability.”
Luo Qiu nodded and then ordered, “Go out and erase the traces of Nero around here. Since the guest requested to hide at our place, let her hide.”
“Got it.” The maid nodded respectfully.
Boss Luo whispered, “There is still time in the evening. Let’s buy some Christmas decorations.”
You Ye went out with a smile.
In the alleyways between the city buildings, black shadows were now running up the wall at a fast speed, climbing all the way to the twenty-story rooftop.
These dark shadows finally gathered on the rooftop. They knelt on one knee in front of a human youth with gray-black hair.
“Young master, we have lost the trace of that woman. She seems to have disappeared all of a sudden.”
The young master turned around at this time. He had a typical oriental face, but with strange purple pupils, “Batu, even a tracking master like you lost her trace.”
“Subordinate is incompetent. Please forgive me, young master!” Batu lowered his head immediately.
The young master shook his head, “First, hide your demon beast qi. After all, this is the Master True Dragon’s territory… Although I can’t feel Master True Dragon’s spiritual qi, her spiritual qi still entangles the city. In addition, there is an unusual demon beast power.”
Another subordinate suddenly said, “I heard that the aggressive Sun Xiaosheng is also in this city.”
The young master nodded, “It turns out to be this mysterious monkey demon beast. I heard… We chased all the way here just for the secret treasure stolen from the clan. We try our best not to provoke the Sun Xiaosheng. Since the Greedy Wolf Clan lost the last Greedy Wolf Group decades ago, we must be more cautious.”
Batu interrupted abruptly, “Young master… How about Master True Dragon?”
The young master said indifferently, “With Master Dragon’s capability, as long as we are here, she will naturally sense it immediately. Since she does not make any response, she may have left temporarily. But this is not a big deal. Be careful not to cause chaos in this city. We’re no longer on the plateau, so please be more careful. If Master Long put faults on us, I will personally apologize.”
Another subordinate growled at this time, “We’re at horrible luck! We were going to the Penglai  Appointment, but we didn’t expect to encounter such a nasty thief on the way, using that strange weapon to kill us. More than a dozen brothers have fallen! If she died because of the young master’s attack, it would be great. If she is not dead, I will catch her back alive, take her back to the clan, and burn her on the stake !”
“Yes, I don’t know if we will miss this Penglai Appointment because of this.” The last subordinate sighed.
The young master waved his hand and said, “For thousands of years, the Penglai Appointment has changed its nature. It is fine to miss it once or twice. But we can’t afford to lose our clan’s secret treasure… We need to expand the scope of the search. Dead or alive, I need to see her. We must not lose our clan’s secret treasures.
“Subordinates take orders!”
They once again turned into black shadows, spreading out in four directions, lurking in this prosperous city.
The young master looked at the city again at this time with gleaming ripples in his purple eyes, “Weird, why is the spiritual qi of this city so abundant? Besides the spiritual qi of Master True Dragon and Sun Xiaosheng, why is there something attracting me? It seems so kind, but also…”
The young master narrowed his eyes and said, “It makes me uncomfortable.”
In an open space, a flying football hit Windchaser’s face severely.
Cheese, Nini, and Little Jiang came over quickly, “Windchaser, what’s the matter with you? Why’re you dazed?”
Windchaser scratched his head in suspicion and picked up the football on the ground. “Maybe… I’m hungry?”
“Who is hungry? I brought cakes and western pastries!”
Quietly, a burst of hearty laughter appeared behind these people. Nini heard it, turned around, and smiled, “Brother Xiaofei! You are here!”
Mo Xiaofei handed the cake box he was holding to Nini’s hand. He then sighed and said, “To be honest, it’s okay if I don’t know. Once I learned your true age, it makes me depressed to hear you calling me brother…”
Windchaser said sternly at this time, “Elder brother, how many times have I said that? If you didn’t try your best to save me that day, I might not be able to hold on to my life… So, you will be my elder brother all my life!”
“Okay, okay, let’s not talk about it.” Mo Xiaofei smiled happily, “I dropped by to visit you, and then I will continue to serve my apprenticeship under my master!”
“Elder brother, take care!” Windchaser put his hands on his waist and bid farewell with a ninety degrees bow.
Mo Xiaofei scratched his head… He was still not used to it.
