She then ignored him and went to check out the wind caller. As it was badly injured, it was still crouching there, otherwise, it would have escaped earlier.
Its crouching position was rather strange. Though it could no longer support itself, its two fore hooves were still supporting it against the ground, as if afraid to trod on something.
When Gu Xijiu got nearer, it immediately whistled angrily while raising its head as if giving a warning.
However, as it was severely injured, its whistle was not as intimidating as before.
Gu Xijiu said, "Ill not hurt you; I only want to cure your wound." She took out some medicine and showed it to the wind caller.
The wind caller did not show any appreciation but whistled again, this time taking its voice up a notch.
"Master, it said that you remind him of a weasel paying a courtesy visit to a chicken, albeit with no good intention." The mussel opened its shell in Gu Xijius sleeve and translated lazily.
Gu Xijiu had a thought and pulled it out, "You know how to speak the language of the beast? Come, be my translator and tell it that I will not make it surrender to be my mount. Ill let it go immediately after I cure it."
As soon as the mussel reached the ground, it went back to its original size - as big as a small house. It opened and closed its shell, drooling while staring at the windcaller, "Master, its severely injured and is not able to recover in a short period of time. Besides, it does not appreciate your offering. It would be better if I eat it; its meat is very delicious"
Gu Xijiu was annoyed and slapped on its shell, "Eat it if you dare! Be careful, for I may turn you into stew!"
The mussel was unhappy, "Master, youre being partial" It mumbled but it did translate Gu Xijiu's words to the wind caller.
It definitely added some of its own thoughts, "Youre known as the wind caller, right? You're just able to run faster but you are still much poorer than I am! My master just got me, so how would she fancy you? She was just being kind, wanting to cure you. But you are so stubborn and not being grateful! If she had harboured any bad intentions, how would you be able to escape with your current condition? If you dont even understand this, that's stupid of you, no?"
Its last words obviously hit the wind callers weak spot, which let its guard down and nodded towards Gu Xijiu.
Gu Xijiu heaved a sigh of relief and felt that having a beast acting as a translator made things easier.
It seemed that the mussel she kept was rather useful, and not just a useless gourmand.
There were many wounds on the wind callers body and many of them needed to be stitched.
As Gu Xijiu needed to fight her way out of the Dark Forest herself, she had a complete set of medicine and bandage as well as surgical suture and needle. She quickly helped the wind caller with its wounds
After Si Chen stood and observed her for a moment, he went to lend her a helping hand. With a vague smile, he said, "Ah Sheng, I didnt know you were so kind."
Gu Xijiu slightly pursed her lips but said nothing.
Even though she knew the good and the bad, she usually disliked to be nosy.
She helped the wind caller this time, because she somehow felt pleased to see it for unknown reasons
Furthermore, she admired its character of not being subdued by force. Therefore, she tried to save it.
The windcaller also felt her kindness and finally let down its guard, allowing her to apply medicine and even to suture its wound
However, it was still subconsciously protecting itself and disallowed anyone to touch certain parts of its front chest.
Because that part was not injured, Gu Xijiu did not pay attention to it. She was shocked to see that there was an opening out of a sudden and thus, she took few more glances at it.
