345 Mercenary Groups Temporary Member 2

 They were very quick with their actions, so they did not attract anyone's attention. Shen Yanxiao had also been very conservative with the number of ingredients that she had taken so that it would not arouse anyone's suspicion. When she deemed that she had gotten enough, they immediately left the storage room.

The guards on shift did not even notice that someone had trespassed into the medicine storage room. However, a few hundred stalks of medicinal ingredients had been taken without anyone's notice. Compared to the tens of thousands of precious ingredients in the storage room, the few hundred that Shen Yanxiao had swiped were quite negligible.

Shen Yanxiao had managed to check an item off her list of tasks once she got the medicinal ingredients. She had relied on the Saint Laurent Academy's large medicine storage room to get her hands on more than half the ingredients for the Blood Banquet Potion. She would just have to continue in search of the other twenty-plus medicinal ingredients.

Anyway, she had more important things to handle before that.

The Cave Wolves Mercenary Groups' invitation was like a pie that fell from the skies. When she returned to the dormitory, she laid on the bed and tried to calm her mind so that she could enter her spiritual consciousness for a discussion with Xiu.

Shen Yanxiao sighed when she saw Xiu's ice-cold and yet bewitching appearance.

"Xiu, what do you think about that mission?"

Xiu's captivating golden eyes narrowed before he said, "There are two possibilities. One, the client knows nothing about the real strength of the Phoenix. Second, they hid that information deliberately so that they can use the mercenaries to capture the beast. However, from the look of things, scenario one is not very likely. Since they know the location of the beast, we can assume that they have exchanged blows with it. They may already know its real strength."

Shen Yanxiao nodded and said, "I, too, think that the possibility of the second scenario is higher. If the Phoenix is comparable to a mythical beast, then those mercenary groups would never stand a chance. Those at advanced-level might be able to deal some light damage. However, those at intermediate-level would not be able to harm it even if the Phoenix did not offer any resistance."

"I also think that it is weird that the client would spend so much money to employ those mercenary groups." Shen Yanxiao touched her chin. There was definitely something amiss with the mission, and the client even dared to think about taking on a magical beast that had the same strength as a mythical beast. It was not the typical thought process of an average person.

"It's pointless to rely on those mercenary groups to deal with an adult Phoenix. I believe that the client must have something up their sleeves if they even dared to entertain such thoughts." Xiu narrowed his eyes.

Both of them were extremely smart, and that was why they could see through the mission with only a little discussion between them.

"Who cares about them? I only want the Flame Grass. If they were to fight the Phoenix, it still doesn't have anything to do with me." Shen Yanxiao felt indifferent about that because her primary objective was not the Phoenix but the Flame Grass instead. She was confident with her thieving skills, so she knew that she would not slip. As long as it is something she wanted, even the Vermillion Bird was not an obstruction.

With that in mind, Shen Yanxiao looked at the quiet Vermillion Bird who stood at the side.

The subject of her attention glared at her with a displeased expression.

He was a mythical beast, and he simply could not bear for someone to ignore him for so long.

Unfortunately, his master baffled him. She could let him out occasionally, but it was either to steal something for her or to run some errands. He even had to find medicinal ingredients for her. Those were not things that a mythical beast should do!
