Chapter 481: Uncle Nine (2)
Shen Yanxiao stared at the two men with suspicion as they left.
He fell and skinned his back
Such an explanation might be able to fool an ordinary kid.
However, Shen Yanxiao was well aware that the wound on Ah Kes back did not come from a fall.
That was a mark from an injury caused by fire-elemental magical powers.
From the wounds state of recovery, Ah Ke must have been wounded about half a month ago.
That coincided with the time when the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group had been attacked there.
Shen Yanxiao was certain that one or a few of the magi from the Cave Wolves Mercenary Group had inflicted the wound on Ah Kes back.
However, what Uncle Nine claimed was that Ke hurt himself by accident.
She had thought it was a strange wound when she saw it on Ah Kens back.
She even observed Ah Kes reaction when Uncle Nine explained about the injury.
He had acted normal, and when Uncle Nine stated that he had slipped by accident, Ah Ke appeared to be embarrassed, as if everything had happened, as Uncle Nine had said.
There was no expression of guilt on his face at all.
Ah Ke seemed simple-minded, so he could not have faked that reaction even if he wanted to keep the pretense.
Was he also convinced that he had received that wound from an accidental slip
Shen Yanxiao frowned at that strange situation.
Ah Ke did not look as if he had lied, and at the same time, Shen Yanxiao was sure she had been right about the origin of the wound.
She must have missed an essential point about the situation.
While Shen Yanxiao was deep in her thoughts, Old Ba had arrived with some big summer radishes in his arms.
Ah Ke had tasked him to bring some food for Shen Yanxiao and the Vermillion Bird.
“The two of you must be starving.
Have some radishes, and I also have some pancakes with him.
Go ahead and grab a quick bite,” Old Ba said as he put the food on the table.
He sounded joyful.
Shen Yanxiao squinted as she picked up a radish and sincerely said, “Thank you, Uncle Ba.”
Old Ba chuckled and scratched his head shyly.
There were no other children in their village.
So, they cared about the delicate and young lives in their midst that day.
“You are very welcome.
Where are Ah Ke and Uncle Nine” Old Ba asked when he did not see the other two in the room.
Shen Yanxiao rolled her eyes.
She took a bite of the radish and said, “Uncle Nine took Uncle Ke to another room to apply some medicine on his back.
Uncle Ba, that wound on Uncle Kes back looked so scary.
He must have been hurt pretty badly.”
Old Ba replied with a laugh, “It is nothing.
Ah Ke is a fool.
He snuck out in the middle of the night and wandered around.
Then he accidentally fell and ended with that wound on his back.
Its just some chafed skin, nothing serious.
It looks a bit creepy to the eyes, but dont be afraid.”
“Is it a serious injury” Shen Yanxiao acted as if she was nervous about it while she pondered about Old Bas words.
Did he also believe that Ah Ke received that wound in a fall
“No, it is not a serious injury.
Oh, kids like you tend to get all stirred up over nothing.
Well, I also have a huge cut on my arm.
See” To prove that Kes wound was nothing serious, Old Ba rolled up his sleeve to show Shen Yanxiao the scar on his left arm.
A mark from a knife cut laid across half of Old Bas thick arm.
“Uncle Ba, what happened to you” Shen Yanxiao gasped.
Old Ba laughed as he replied, “Well, I tend to roll around in my sleep, and one night, I fell to the ground.
I got this cut from a rock on the ground.
But, as you can see, I am well.
Everythings alright!” Old Ba laughed.
