Gu Xijiu could not understand bird language, so she asked the bird caregiver below the tree, "What is it trying to say?"
He bowed, "Lady, it said that there is only the scent of the tree; no human scent."
Gu Xijiu frowned while looking at the bird, "Could it be that its nose had malfunctioned?"
"Tweeter" The bird stretched out its plumage, looking very angry.
"Seems like it is a malfunction." Gu Xijiu concluded, "That man was around those branches just now; he definitely would have left the scent. I can't smell it, and neither can this stupid bird. A hunting hound should be able to smell it. Butler Xiao, I think you should give me a hound."
"Tweeter!" The birds eyes had turned red, and it took off like a cyclone, with its wing almost scratching Gu Xijius face.
It did not take the scent of the previous branches, instead, it flew to another thicker branch, circled around it, then flew back above Gu Xijiu and chirped around her.
Gu Xijiu looked at the caregiver. He answered, "I think it found the scent of someone at that branch. You could investigate there."
Gu Xijiu noticed the sweat on his head, "What was it trying to say before this?"
The caregiver perspired even more profusely, "Yes It said the same thing."
Gu Xijiu looked at the bird.
The bird could not speak human language but apparently, it understood human. At this moment, it was scolding the caregiver with much displeasure with a series of quick chirps.
Gu Xijiu smiled, "Is it scolding me?"
The caregiver looked at the bird embarrassingly, then looked at Gu Xijiu. He decided to cleverly remain silent.
If he lied, he would annoy the bird. But if he did not, he would frustrate this lady.
Gu Xijiu would definitely not argue with a bird. Instead, she fiddled with the bird's crown, "That is quite an attitude you have here! Let's just hope you have what it takes to have such an attitude."
She ignored the bird and jumped onto the branch. Finally, she picked up a mild scent, and she stiffened up a bit.
It was the scent of Long Siye!
Could it be that Long Siye was here just now?
Gu Xijiu narrowed her eyes a little, could it be Long Siye who told her that he bore grudges against her?
She stood there pondering for a while and kept feeling that Long Siye did not behave like the mysterious man. That man was more perverse and elusive.
Moreover, she felt that the man was standing at another branch, not here
Did she sense it wrongly?
Determined, she moved to that branch and investigated. She finally made a discovery - a strand of hair.
Gu Xijiu picked up the air and sniffed for the scent. But alas, there was a barely even a discernable mild fragrance.
Gu Xijiu frowned; she picked up that scent a few days ago when she was pounced on by Rong Jialuo!
Was he here too?
Were there two people here? Not just one?
Looking at the distance between the two branches, they were two meters apart. In fact, Long Siye was at the front.
Which means, if two people were present at the same time, Long Siye would be at the front, so who else was behind him?
Long Siye was the overlord of the Tianwen Clan. His abilities could match that of the emperor. If Rong Jialuo was behind him, there was no way he couldn't have detected him!
Rong Jialuo was proficient in kung fu, but he should not be better than Long Siye?
