342 Cave Wolves Mercenary Groups Invitation 2

 It was possible that the customer in front of him had a deeper understanding of the Phoenixes.

The young man stared blankly at the little kid that his leader had asked for assistance. The kid's height did not even reach the young man's chest, so the request was so startling that his eyeballs were about to fall out.

Had he seen a ghost in broad daylight, or was it something else?

Did their strong and domineering leader really ask assistance from a little kid? He had even given him a ten percent discount! It was rare that someone would get preferential treatment from the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group, and they could easily count on one hand for those that did.

Had their leader's brain shut down that day, for him to be that generous?

Du Lang had it all planned out when he gave Shen Yanxiao such a huge discount. Based on that single transaction, he had deduced that Shen Yanxiao was not all she seemed. With his previous theory about her and her questions about the Phoenixes, he concluded that Shen Yanxiao must have been a mysterious expert who had used a secret method to change her physique. It was only natural that a leader like him would want to engage with someone like her.

Of course, Du Land had not ultimately confirmed his theory, and he could only determine that after he heard her explanation about the Phoenixes.

If Shen Yanxiao really knew about the long-gone secrets of the Phoenixes, then he would have guessed her identity correctly. After all, no one in that world had such knowledge about the magical beasts from the legends.

Shen Yanxiao was somewhat surprised by Du Lang's generosity, but she did not have any intentions to reject him. She was already looking for a Phoenix's nest, so if she could build a good rapport with the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group, perhaps she could ask them to grab a Flame Grass while they headed for the Phoenix's nest.

However, Shen Yanxiao also realized that the people in that world knew very little about the Phoenixes. If she were to reveal everything to Du Land, it would probably cause trouble for her in the future. Therefore, she exerted caution when she gave her explanation. "I do not know much about the Phoenixes. However, I do know that Feng refers to a male Phoenix, while Huang refers to a female Phoenix." The word 'Phoenix' was the generic term for that magical beast. Similar to the people from her previous world, most of them assumed that the Phoenixes were all males, and they did not even know that there were also female Phoenixes.

Du Lang and the young man stared at Shen Yanxiao when she told them that. Both of them looked surprised at that information too.

It was apparent that they did not know the differences between Feng and Huang before her explanation about that.

Du Lang narrowed his eyes and pondered about it for a moment. Suddenly, he walked toward Shen Yanxiao and said, "I wonder if you are available during this period. I would like to extend a temporary invitation for you to join the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group in this mission. Rest assured that you are not required to participate in fights. We would like it if you can give us some information about Phoenixes at your convenience." Du Lang could almost confirm that the customer with him was not the thirteen-year-old kid he pretended to be.

They would not have found the information that she revealed even if they were to search the entire Brilliance Continent.

How would such a young kid know about that?

The young man was also shocked by Du Lang's invitation, and he even suspected that his leader had been switched! Otherwise, why would their leader invite a young kid to join their group so suddenly?
