Why was Xia Muqing so popular with the beasts?
The little phoenix chattered in his ear. “Because she smells very good.”
Unfortunately, Jiang Yifan didn’t understand beast language, and he only heard chatter. “Are you hungry again?”
With that, he took out a red spirit fruit and handed it to her.
The little phoenix was very angry and spat out a mouthful of air. Then, it took the spirit fruit and took a huge bite.
Jiang Yifan was a little confused. He turned around and saw that the cheetah was still lying on Xia Muqing’s body, staring at him.
Unable to withstand the intensity of his gaze, he took a step back.
But the cheetah took a step forward.
The two of them were in a deadlock. Jiang Yifan noticed that the cheetah was looking at the fruit in the phoenix’s mouth.
He was enlightened.
He took out a spirit fruit and threw it over. The cheetah indeed opened its mouth to catch it.
However, the spirit fruit was too small for it. It finished the fruit and continued to stare at him.
Jiang Yifan had no choice but to take out another one. However, he was stopped by the little phoenix.
The little phoenix flapped its wings and flew to the cheetah’s head, pecking its head ruthlessly.
The cheetah didn’t dare to retaliate as it had smelled the phoenix scent from its body. It could only shake its head repeatedly, trying to throw the phoenix off.
The little phoenix’s body swayed in the air with its movements.
“Cheetah, stop,” Xia Muqing said.
Jiang Yifan suppressed his fear and hurriedly took the phoenix away from his head.
The phoenix was restless in his hand, and it spread its wings as if it was ready to fight to the death.
Jiang Yifan guessed what she wanted and quickly coaxed, “I won’t give it any more spirit fruits.”
As expected, the phoenix fell silent.
The corners of Xia Muqing’s mouth twitched. “You’re really embarrassing all the phoenixes.”
Xia Muqing snorted softly when she said that. The phoenix, who had always been sensible, lowered its head and stopped fooling around.
The cheetah came over aggrievedly and sought comfort from Xia Muqing.
It thought of something and howled again.
Xia Muqing’s expression changed and she asked, “What happened to the black eagle and the rest?”
The cheetah said, “A woman appeared at their cave previously, and I haven’t seen them since.”
He knew that the black eagle had a close bond with Xia Muqing, and so he paid attention to it.
Xia Muqing frowned and signaled Jiang Yifan with her eyes. She then quickly rushed towards the cliff where the black eagle lived.
The cheetah followed her and said, “Come, I’ll bring you there.”
Xia Muqing didn’t stand on ceremony and sat on its back. She waved at Jiang Yifan before she left.
The cheetah began to accelerate. They were truly worthy of being called swift beasts. In an instant, Jiang Yifan could only see their shadows.
He also knew that there was a change in the situation. Without delay, he relied on the little phoenix’s instructions and rushed towards the mountain cliff.
Xia Muqing was the first to reach the cliff. Nothing seemed to have changed here, but when she entered the cave they lived in, everything in the cave had fallen to the ground in a mess.
Just as the cheetah had said, the entire eagle family had disappeared.
The cheetah suddenly growled softly, “We didn’t hear any sounds at all in the mountain.”
One could tell from a glance at this scene that there had been an intense fight. They were only puzzled. Despite the strength of the Azure Cloud Eagle Clan, they were actually taken away silently. Was that person really that strong?
Xia Muqing was very worried, but the only clue was the woman the cheetah had mentioned.
Xia Muqing asked, “Did you see that woman’s face clearly?”
The cheetah scratched its head. After thinking for a long time, it said in distress, “I think I saw her clearly, but don’t humans all look the same?”
Xia Muqing paused before asking, “Then did you see any special ornaments or clothes on her?”
