362 The Clients Cleverness 4

 The way they treated her reminded Shen Yanxiao of her comrades from her past life.

They were a team of thieves in an organization, and they had both young and old members. Shen Yanxiao had been the youngest member there, and they had despised her when she joined the team. They would whisper bad things about her, but if she were in any danger, they would be the first to rescue her.

At that time, Shen Yanxiao was not very skilled, and she would encounter difficult situations during her missions. However, someone from her team would discreetly deal with those situations, and they would also resolve any problem at crucial times.

It was only later that Shen Yanxiao found out that the organization had raised those groups of people, and they had developed deep friendships with one another. As for their initial rejection of Shen Yanxiao, it was because they could not bear to see a little girl in such dangerous missions.

It lasted until Shen Yanxiao developed excellent skills to become the number one thief goddess in the world, and the organization pulled her out to train by herself. As a result, she had been forced to leave that group of people.

Even so, she had always kept memories from that time close in her heart.

She had felt similar emotions when she was with the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group. It seemed like she had become the youngest in the group again, a dead weight that a group of uncles and brothers would protect.

That complicated feeling distressed her for some time. She had known about the dangers that awaited them, but she did not know how to mention it to that group of honest mercenaries.

When she saw the reactions of the other mercenary groups, she realized that she had to make a decision. She thought that the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group mercenaries would have a slight chance of survival as they would be cooperating with the other mercenary groups. However, as she looked at the trash who were frightened by the mere reputation of Mount Kuluo, she knew that they were not worthy of fighting alongside the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group.

When a young mercenary from the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group saw the little frown on Shen Yanxiao's forehead, he softly said, "Hey, kid. There's no need to be afraid. If you're in any danger, your brother here will take care of you. Besides that, you also have Evil Wolf by your side to protect you, so you can definitely survive this." That mercenary was about eighteen to nineteen years old, and he was a junior expert. In the face of the perilous Kuluo Mountain, his first thought was to comfort a young kid that he had only recently befriended.

Even though they did not like the sight of him at the start of their journey, the kid did not behave childishly or wilfully. He would remain silent every day, and the group of hot-blooded mercenaries felt only compassion for the fragile-looking thing. They started to care for him like a younger family member.

One should know that the mercenary was a profession that dealt with life and death situations daily. They might even die on the job one day. Most of the mercenaries had no family or relatives. A lot of them were well past the age of thirty, but they had yet to start a family of their own. They had already abandoned the thought of starting a family when they joined the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group. If they were to die during a mission, would their wife not become a widow?

Besides that, they were usually on missions for eleven months in a year, and hence, they would not have time to accompany their families as well. Therefore, they would rather not implicate anyone else in their lives, and they preferred to earn enough to feed themselves in the company of their brothers.

Those mercenaries had developed tender affections for the little kid who had made an unexpected appearance in their group.
