"Each of them was very cunning and would not be easily tricked. Besides, you can only use dragons meat as a lure, but you may still fail to catch one even if you throw in a wholesome piece."
Was it so difficult?!
How could they only be golden tortoises? They should be diamond tortoise instead!
Gu Xijiu asked the young childe, "Hey brother, do you still have any dragon meat left? I want to try."
"No, that was the last piece." The young childe shook his head and took a glance at her with a faint smile, "What did you just call me? Brother? I think you should have asked for my name."
"Alright, whats your name?" Gu Xijiu accepted his advice.
"Great, Mr. Si"
"Mr. Die? Are you cursing me?!" Si Chen was unhappy.
Sigh, his surname was not proper to call.
"Then, what if I call you Mr. Chen?"
"My surname is not Chen." Si Chen was still unhappy.
Gu Xijiu was troubled, "Mr. Si Chen then." This should be alright already, right?
"You havent told me your name yet." Si Chen reminded.
At this moment, Gu Xijiu no longer had to hide her identity anymore, "Gu Xijiu."
"The sixth sister of the Gu Xietian mansion? You look different from what I heard." Si Chen sized her from head to toe again.
Gu Xijiu smiled and did nothing else.
"Mr. Si Chen, have you been here for two days already?" Gu Xijiu asked.
"Nothing." Gu Xijiu sat on a pebble and massaged her aching legs.
She had been running for a long time and was very tired already. Though the stream water was dangerous, the riverbank was relatively safe.
She had been talking with Mr. Si Chen for three minutes and had not seen any ferocious beasts yet. Therefore, the place should be relatively safe for her to rest for a while.
Gu Xijiu also started to study her surroundings. They were slightly strange as both the south and north bank of the stream were buffered with nearly a hundred meters of pebbles. Furthermore, the trees at each bank were very different.
The north bank had blue trees while the south bank had bluish-green trees about a hundred meters away. Had she already escaped the third peak? Or was it because of this stream that the trees are so unusual?
Bone Dissolving Stream, what a cruel name!
Though Gu Xijiu planned her strategy to escape, what she knew about Dark Forest was based entirely on what she heard from Rong Jialuo, who just managed to get to the third peak. She had not heard about the Bone Dissolving Stream.
"Mr. Si Chen, is this Bone Dissolving Stream the boundary between the third peak and the second peak?" Gu Xijiu asked hopefully.
"The boundary between the third peak and the second peak?" Mr. Si Chen frowned.
"Yea, the tree colors of both banks are very different after all. And I think this is the boundary."
Mr. Si Chen stared at her for a moment and faltered, "Do you want to hear the truth?"
Gu Xijiu suddenly felt curious, "Whats the truth?"
Mr. Si Chen stared at her with sympathy and sighed, "Im afraid you would cry if you heard the truth"
Gu Xijiu was annoyed, "I wont cry! As a man, say it out quick, please! Whats the truth?"
Mr. Si Chen sighed again, "Heres"
Before he could finish speaking, two high-pitched hissing sounds were suddenly heard. Meanwhile, the surrounding temperature reduced abruptly, and a familiar murderous aura was spreading.
Gu Xijiu immediately jumped up!
