Chapter 233 – Frantic Training Pt. 1
After hearing Suo Jia’s words, Duo Mei could only stand there incredulously. She just couldn’t dare to believe that Suo Jia’s expectations of her were so great. But when she thought about it some more, if she really did display the full strength of the equipments she had, what Suo Jia said would naturally occur.
Suo Jia sighed at Duo Mei’s shocked expression and said in a low voice, “Duo Mei, you’re different from others. I can tell you right now that members able to enter the Azure Angels group are all intended to help me adventure through the Greater Trade Routes. If one doesn’t have extremely powerful strength, then they definitely don’t have the qualifications to be there, That’s why…you have to work hard.”
“Yes…” When she heard ‘Greater Trade Routes’, Duo Mei’s eyes lit up. That place was heaven to warriors. While it was hard to meet an expert here, they could be anywhere on the Greater Trade Routes. Nobody without some level of skill would be able to enter.
Suo Jia waved his hand and said, “Alright, you can leave now. When you go back, think over this carefully. I need you to clearly understand that as the captain of the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes, you must be absolutely domineering.”
Duo Mei wordlessly nodded, then respectfully bid farewell before quickly turning around to leave. Before…she hadn’t known how to practice, and had just been with her sisters every day to train in the same things. But after Suo Jia’s advice, she had finally understood that as the captain, she had to have her own specialties.
Seeing Duo Mei’s hurriedly leaving figure, Suo Jia quickly shouted behind her, “Oh right, please send over the captive we just caught. I want to personally interrogate him.”
Duo Mei nodded and quickly left. The Fire Phoenix equipment set could be put aside, but the Six-Winged Phoenix Heavenly Clothes was a new type of equipment that was both very effective and skillful. These needed to be slowly tested out. In addition…since she wore two equipment sets at once, there were also the circumstances of mutual relations and impacts between the two. If she didn’t spent a lot of time on it, she would probably never know how to use either of them.
Soon afterwards, that black-clothed, masked person was dragged in. Seeing the person’s petite figure, but extremely delicate and pretty facial features, Suo Jia couldn’t help but smile at the sight of the tight ropes coiled around her body. He inwardly nodded to himself; General Jason had quite a strong awareness of danger.
The delicate and pretty thief glared at Suo Jia while furiously gnashing her teeth. Seeing the little thief’s expression, Suo Jia couldn’t help but furrow his brows. He just couldn’t understand why she hated him so much. Had he done anything offend Heaven and reason?
Suo Jia huffed in annoyance, “Oi, why are you looking at me like, as if I’m your nemesis that killed your father or something? In reality, I don’t even recognize you.”
The little thief was stunned at first, but then she curled her lips, and looked off to one side in contempt. After Suo Jia’s question, she’d suddenly realized that on the battlefield, each person had their own party of concern, so the concept of hate didn’t even exist.
Suo Jia looked at the little thief in front of him, and quietly stood up and walked over to her. Hearing the sound of Suo Jia’s footsteps, the little thief suddenly turned around and looked up at Suo Jia in terror.
Evilly rubbing his chin, Suo Jia walked around the little thief’s body once. After being inspected the little thief said trembling, “You…what are you going to do to me? I’m not afraid of you!”
Seeing that the opposite party was clearly very frightened and still trying to put on a front, Suo Jia couldn’t help but laugh out loud. He lightly patted her shoulders, and just as he was about to say something, the little thief sharply cried out, “Ya…remove your filthy hands, don’t touch me.”
The sharp cry was frighteningly piercing, and the shocked Suo Jia retracted his hand as if he had been electrocuted. The words he was just about to say were instantly forgotten completely.
Dumbfounded, Suo Jia looked at the delicate little thief. He just couldn’t fathom how such a small body could make such a clear, ear-piercing shout. It was really too frightening; at such close distance, Suo Jia’s eardrums had almost burst.
Suo Jia rubbed his ears and looked thoughtfully at the little thief. Her sharp cry just now had revealed too many things. The other party was wearing thief clothes that hid her identity, However, unless the thief was a small child, there was no way a boy could make such a high-pitched sound.
When Suo Jia examined her closer, he quickly confirmed that she was indeed a young girl. Although she may have been able to conceal it from others, Suo Jia was extremely familiar with body structures, especially female ones. There was no way she could possibly keep this a secret from him.
By using his manipulation over water, Suo Jia instantly figured out her body’s composition. This factually proved that the little thief’s body wasn’t any different from Duo Mei’s, she was just slightly more petite in some places and not as large as Duo Mei. But really, how many people had bodies that could compare to Duo Mei’s?
Suo Jia quickly understood why the other party didn’t want him to touch her. At the same time, he also knew how to force her to speak. Hehe…she didn’t want him to touch her? Then he’d just go ahead and do it more.
Suo Jia smiled darkly and used the water to seal his ears. Then, he evilly stretched out his hand to touch the little thief once more. For the sake of verifying his guess, Suo Jia reached out towards the little thief’s chest.
“Yah.” The sharp cry rang out again, but Suo Jia had long since prepared for it. Because the water had blocked his ears, there was no way any sound could pass through. That’s why Suo Jia nonchalantly rubbed the little thief’s chest. As expected…just as Suo Jia had anticipated, the feeling he got from underneath his hands was extremely nice, very supple, but also as soft as cotton.
Suo Jia retracted his hand in satisfaction, and unconsciously placed his hand underneath his nose while taking a slight whiff. It was a crisp smell that refreshed the mind and directly penetrated the nose; Suo Jia couldn’t help but breathe deeply.
Seeing Suo Jia act so vulgarly and frivolously, the little thief’s face blushed deeply. She hadn’t imagined that she’d fallen to such a level. If she knew this would happen, she wouldn’t have jumped out to sneak attack him back then, and would’ve just stayed hidden this whole time.
Just as the little thief was thinking this, Suo Jia dispersed the water sealing his ears and said with a spoiled smile, “I have some things I want to ask you about. I hope that you can obediently answer them, ok?”
“Hmph.” With a cold snort, the little thief said in a charming tone, “Stop deluding yourself. Now that I’m in your hands, you can kill me or torture me, but you won’t ever get me to say anything, even in your dreams.”
“Hehe…” With a dark chuckle, Suo Jia begrudgingly said, “Then there’s no way around it. If you aren’t willing to cooperate with me, I’ll just bestow you to the soldiers.”
“You…what do you mean?” The girl subconsciously felt fear from hearing Suo Jia’s words.
“That…” Suo Jia chuckled and said, “You should also know that there isn’t a single girl in Dawn City. The soldiers are all restless with boredom. Now…that I’ve caught a girl, I can naturally hand you over to my brothers to play with. I hope that you can at least last for a little while, and let my brothers enjoy themselves.”
Suo Jia abruptly raised his head and shouted, “Someone, drag this girl out and send her to the slave camp! Tell them that I’m bestowing her to everyone, and they can enjoy her well.”
“No. Don’t…” The little thief’s face immediately paled in horror. She shot a terrified look at Suo Jia, and the little thief fiercely shook her head and said, “I beg of you, please don’t do that. If you have any questions, ask away. I’ll definitely answer you.”
Hearing the little thief concede, Suo Jia nodded in satisfaction and waved his hand to tell the soldiers that had just entered to leave. He then turned back around to the little thief and said, “Alright. In that case, then tell me your name first.”
The little thief hesitated for a bit, but she still answered, “My name is Nicole.”
Suo Jia furrowed his brows and said, “It’s best if you think it through carefully before replying. You can try lying or deceiving me, but if I discover it, I’ll immediately execute the order I just rescinded. I definitely won’t give you any other chances.”
The little thief urgently replied, “I’ve always been called Nicole, I’m telling the truth. You can’t go back on your words.”
Suo Jia nodded in understanding and smiled, “Alright, I’ll believe you for now. But you’d better make sure I don’t find out you’re tricking me, or else your future will be more miserable than you could possibly imagine.”
Nicole couldn’t help but tremble at this. When she thought of falling into the hands of those filthy slaves, those evil and dirty hands wandering across her body, she couldn’t stop shivering. This was really even more frightening than death.
Suo Jia continued, “Ok, I want to ask you something else. How many experts like the ones that encircled us yesterday do you guys have?”
“That…” After muttering herself for a bit, Nicole firmly replied, “Not that many. Those are Oz City’s elite troops, and there are about 1000 of them total. In addition to the Thief Alliance’s experts, there should be around 2000 of them.”
After interrogating her for over half an hour, Suo Jia ordered for someone to bring Nicole away and properly detain her without mistreating her. After that short interrogation, Suo Jia had come to understand many things. For a while, Suo Jia’s stood there with a deep frown.
