Chapter 469: Loss (2)
The two people talked back and forth.
Unaware that their words had fallen into the ears of the person nearby, the two people walked off while still engaged in their conversation.
Shen Xiaoyan was frozen on the spot, and her eyebrows furrowed tightly.
Du Lang had told her that they might be close to finding the item she had asked for.
However, it had been half a month since Du Lang sent her that message, and Shen Yanxiao had not received an update since then.
She thought that it was another wild goose chase for Du Lang.
However, at that moment, the conversation between those two people had disturbed her mind.
Shen Yanxiao changed her destination and hurried toward the Cave Wolves Mercenary Groups headquarters.
She did not see a single soul in sight when she reached the entrance, even though it was usually in a solemn atmosphere anyway.
Even the guards by the gate were missing.
The gate was also locked, which was a strange occurrence, indeed.
Shen Yanxiao stepped forward and knocked on the locked gate.
“The Cave Wolves Mercenary Group are not taking any assignments recently.
Please kindly return if you are here to entrust us with a mission.” She heard Evil Wolfs voice from inside the gate, but the gate remained closed.
Shen Yanxiao was sure that something strange had happened with the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group.
She said in haste, “Brother Evil Wolf, it is me, Huo Xiao.”
Silence followed her words.
A moment later, the thick gate opened, and Evil Wolf presented himself in front of Shen Yanxiao.
The moment she saw Evil Wolf, a glint of surprise flashed in her eyes.
As an Advanced Knight, Evil Wolf had always been as hard as nails.
However, as he stood in front of her, she noticed that Evil Wolfs left hand was in a thick layer of bandages, and there were new scars on his handsome face.
“Ah, its you, Huo Xiao.” Evil Wolf looked at Shen Yanxiao with embarrassment.
“Brother Evil Wolf, what happened to you” Shen Yanxiao stared at him in confusion.
Evil Wolf heaved a sigh.
“Come in, and I will tell you about it,” Evil Wolf said to Shen Yanxiao.
She followed Evil Wolf into the Cave Wolves Mercenary Groups headquarters.
The spacious hall was deserted, as nobody was there.
Evil Wolf led her toward the back.
When Shen Yanxiao stepped into the back room, she was completely dumbstruck by what she saw there.
Dozens of Cave Wolves Mercenary Groups members sat in their chairs, each one of them had wounds of varying degrees.
Some of them even had severe injuries like broken arms or legs.
The faint smell of blood fumed in the air.
“Brother Evil Wolf, what happened” Shen Yanxiao found it hard to imagine that the well-trained Cave Wolves Mercenary Group could be in that sorry state.
It seemed like what she had heard was not a groundless rumor.
“Where is your leader” Shen Yanxiao looked around but failed to find Du Lang.
Evil Wolfs expressions suggested that something was wrong.
He lowered his head and clenched his right hand into a fist.
“Our leader… has not regained consciousness yet.”
“Not regained consciousness yet” Shen Yanxiao was startled.
She immediately knew that something had gone wrong.
She pressed Evil Wolf for more details.
However, he was not forthcoming with the details.
I shall take you to see our leader.
As for what had happened, perhaps Magic Wolf will tell you.”
Then, Evil Wolf brought Shen Yanxiao to Du Langs room.
The seven wolves had all gathered around Du Langs bed.
Their leader laid unconscious on his bed.
His handsome face was ghastly pale, and his lips were colorless and dry.
Things did not look that optimistic for him.
When the other five wolves saw Shen Yanxiao, she noticed that there was something unspeakable in their eyes.
None of them was in a better state than Evil Wolf, and there was a hideous wound that stretched from his left cheek to his neck.
“What happened to you What on earth is going on here” Shen Yanxiao asked the miserable seven wolves with a frown.
