When they heard Lin Li’s voice, the first to react wasn’t Bai Xiaofei, nor was it Fei Gou and Chu Gan who were already very sensitive to this name. It was Huskie who was hiding behind Bai Xiaofei.
Huskie jumped around for a little while then directly leaped onto Lin Li’s bed. Barking happily, he wagged his tail.
On the other hand, the stunned Fei Gou and Chu Gan looked at Huskie who was on the bed before looking at Bai Xiaofei who was similarly stunned. Then they gulped down a mouthful of saliva.
Both of them asked with a voice that carried slight disbelief, and just when Bai Xiaofei intended to make an excuse, a nursing staff in the infirmary pushed open the door while holding some medicine.
“Senior Sister, I’ll do it myself. Sorry for troubling you.” Bai Xiaofei carried a kind grin as he hurriedly moved forward to receive the medicine before swiftly walking over to Lin Li’s side, and he seemed as if he had forgotten Fei Gou’s and Chu Gan’s questions.
“One of the senior sisters from before said that you’ll be fine after eating some medicine, so don’t complain about it being bitter.” After he helped Lin Li up, Bai Xiaofei held up the bowl of medicine and blew very gently on the spoon filled with red medicinal soup before sending it towards Lin Li’s mouth.
Lin Li, however, didn’t open her mouth at the first possible moment but just stared fixedly at Bai Xiaofei with an expressionless face. Her large eyes, which hid two deep pools of clear springs, seemed to be about to overflow at any moment.
“What’s wrong? Eat your medicine. It’s already cold.” Bai Xiaofei was slightly stunned because Lin Li’s reaction had entirely exceeded the limits of his understanding.
“Thank you…” She squeezed a slight smile onto her stiff face with great difficulty, but even then from such a stiff expression, Bai Xiaofei still had the misconception of seeing a hundred flowers blooming in unison…
“What’s there to thank me for? If you like it, I’ll feed you anytime in the future,” Bai Xiaofei said then slapped himself. “Ptooey! Ptooey! You’ll be healthy and well in the future and won’t have to eat medicine for no reason. Don’t worry.”
Lin Li couldn’t help but once again smile as she watched Bai Xiaofei’s silly actions, and this time, her smile was slightly livelier than before.
Just like this, Bai Xiaofei fed and Lin Li ate, and not only did she not say it was bitter a single time, she even carried a smile that Bai Xiaofei was unable to understand all throughout the process.
On the other hand, Fei Gou and Chu Gan had originally intended to question Bai Xiaofei about his identity, but they didn’t know how to open their mouths when faced with such a scene.
In the end they were unable to endure this torturous scene, and they simply and directly walked out.
“Fat Dog, that junior sister called him Bai Xiaofei earlier, right?” Once outside, Chu Gan couldn’t help but gulp down a mouthful of saliva. Excitement was already inscribed all over his face.
Teaching Bai Xiaofei a lesson a single time was worth five Starnet Stones, and repeating it ten times was 50 Starnet Stones. Even if it was the two of them, this was absolutely an enormous sum.
“That’s for sure! Didn’t you see him intentionally avoiding us!?” Fei Gou’s eyes were filled with a firm expression, and he’d already started thinking about how to deal with Bai Xiaofei.
“But if he really has a relationship with that Qin Lingyan…” Chu Gan was still worried in his heart. There was nothing to fear from Bai Xiaofei, but he had to properly consider Qin Lingyan.
“What are you afraid of? Even if they really have a relationship, what we just saw is enough to split them apart. At that time perhaps our reward will be even greater!” Fei Gou instantly convinced Chu Gan with an extremely realistic argument.
So, the two of them started the long wait of waiting for the hare to fall into their laps…
However, time flowed by gradually, and Chu Gan lay close to the door and listened for a long time; but he didn’t hear a single sound, and Bai Xiaofei and Lin Li didn’t show any intention of wanting to come out.
“What’s the situation like?” Fei Gou asked with a light voice, as he was deeply afraid of alerting Bai Xiaofei.
“There’s no sound! Could they have fallen asleep?” Chu Gan had just finished speaking when Fei Gou slapped him on the head and looked at Chu Gan as if he was looking at an idiot.
“Sleeping my ass! Do you think everyone is stupid like you!? Go in!” Fei Gou directly pushed open the door and barged in as he spoke, and both of them were immediately stunned on the spot.
The entire room was already empty since an unknown moment in time, and a window in the room was swinging up and down from the cool breeze outside.
“F*ck! That kid did it on purpose! We’ve been tricked!” Chu Gan exclaimed with shock. He was an idiot who only grew wise after something happened, and the saying “it was f*cking useless” had been prepared just for him…
“Give chase! He couldn’t have gotten far!” Fei Gou gestured with his hand as he spoke, causing a puppet mouse to burrow out from a light blue circle of light. It sniffed around the room for a moment before directly leaping out the window.
A puppet space was a special space that any puppet master who had attained Master Rank could open up with their origin energy.
Fei Gou’s puppet mouse was originally utilized for locating medicinal materials, but it was proven to be effective in finding people as well.
Both of them followed closely behind the puppet mouse with a speed that formed an enormous contrast with their body sizes. At the very least, Bai Xiaofei and Lin Li were surely inferior to the two of them.
In less than 15 minutes, both of them could see Bai Xiaofei and Lin Li dashing madly ahead of them.
“Bai Xiaofei, stop! Both of us won’t harm you!” After shouting out something that even he himself didn’t quite believe, Chu Gan summoned his own puppet – a crystalline and translucent arrow.
An Alchemist’s first puppet was usually a type of medicine cauldron because puppets that were connected to a puppet master’s heart were conducive to the success rate of refinement, and for their following puppets, an Alchemist would usually select some type of offensive puppet possessing an explosive might in order to protect themselves.
Chu Gan was a conventional Alchemist, and this crystalline arrow was the weapon that protected his life. The yellow-grade puppet, Windbreaker Arrow!
“Don’t hit his vital points, we can’t bear the responsibility if he dies,” Fei Gou reminded him and didn’t stop Chu Gan’s actions.
“Don’t worry, I’m not an idiot.” As he spoke, Chu Gan poured his origin energy into the Windbreaker Arrow. After continuously pouring origin energy into it for a short moment, the crystalline arrow shot out explosively, and it shot directly at Bai Xiaofei’s thigh.
However, right when both of them thought it would connect for sure, a figure descended from the skies, and a violet light concurrently stopped the Windbreaker Arrow with extreme accuracy.
“What gall! Looks like the lesson I gave both of you earlier wasn’t enough!”
The person who had arrived was precisely Xue Ying wearing the white cloak of a teacher!
Additionally, the violet light that stopped the Windbreaker Arrow was one of Xue Ying’s puppets, a violet-grade dagger called Whirlwind!
After they clearly saw the face of the person who had arrived, a strand of coldness crept up the backs of Fei Gou and Chu Gan at the same time, and the thought of fleeing gushed into their hearts at the first possible moment.
But fleeing from Xue Ying, who was at the Grandmaster Rank, was easier said than done!
Xue Ying lightly clenched her fists as she slowly walked over towards Chu Gan and Fei Gou. The pair were trembling from head to toe, and the cracking sounds that directly resounded out terrified both of them to the point that they squatted down, held their heads, and begged for mercy.
“Teacher, spare us!”
“Teacher, spare us!”
“It was a misunderstanding! We and Brother Bai are—”
Fei Gou hadn’t finished speaking when a strong gust of wind assaulted his face, and in the next second, Xue Ying’s leg swept out and directly kicked Fei Gou flying almost five meters away.
“I didn’t hear it quite clearly. What did both of you call me earlier?” Xue Ying spoke in a cold voice while she looked at Chu Gan, who was still squatting on the ground. Then, she stepped on him to the point he fell flat on the ground. At this moment Xue Ying had completely forgotten the rule that teachers couldn’t beat up students!
