Chapter 11: A horse cannot get fat without eating grass.
“Snapping…… This wooden box has another hidden compartment.”
When Mu Liang scratched the bottom of the wooden box with his fingers, he found that it was hollow.
He used his military knife to pry open the wooden board at the bottom of the wooden box and saw a cloth bag inside it. After opening and looking at it, he discovered that there were seeds inside it.
“These are actually vegetable seeds. No wonder they are placed in the secret compartment.”
Mu Liang happily tied the bag and stuffed it into his backpack.
In this post-apocalypse wasteland world, the seeds of green plants represented the important hope for the revival of civilization in the future.
While searching the room, Mu Liang opened the closet next to the bed and found another surprise.
Five rolls of cloth of different colors were neatly placed in the closet.
“There’s a lot of stuff. It looks like I’ll have to get some help.”
Mu Liang took five rolls of cloth out of the closet and touched his chin as he thought about how to transport all these things out of the house.
There were many things in the chief’s room that he wanted to take away with him.
Who let Mu Liang cross over with nothing? In such a post-apocalypse wasteland world, he couldn’t buy household items, even if he had money, since there was no place to buy them.
“Xiao Cai, sneak in.”
Mu Liang used his mind to summon the tricolored lizard who was secretly protecting Mino so that it could come and help him move things.
The rock-armor tortoise couldn’t be summoned. If it came, it would probably push down the wall and barge in.
While the tricolored lizard was rushing over, Mu Liang packed all the things he wanted to take with him, including five rolls of cloth and a bundle of swords.
He rummaged through the wardrobe once again and saw that most things had been used by the leader. For example, clothes, quilts, and so on.
He didn’t want used things.
“There is still an unused wolf’s skin here.”
Mu Liang opened the last closet and saw that a wolf’s skin was properly placed inside.
He took it out and found that the edges and corners of this wolf’s skin were untreated. He could tell at first glance that it was still unused.
“Since there are three wolf heads, how could there be no wolf’s skin?”
Mu Liang rolled the wolf skin and put it aside. Then he softly said, “Now there’s no need to worry about the quilt.”
After he finished sorting all the things, he looked up at the ceiling.
The tricolored lizard had arrived very quickly. It didn’t need to climb over the wall like Mu Liang to hide from people. It used its claws to climb over the ceiling.
“Come down and help me carry some things back.” Mu Liang waved at the lizard.
The tricolored lizard tilted its head and climbed down the wall.
“It’s size is still a little small. I don’t think it can carry too many things.”
Mu Liang looked at the five rolls of cloth that were one meter long and then looked at the tricolored lizard that was also only one meter in body length.
“Looks like it’s time for you to evolve to level 3.”
Mu Liang raised his hand, placed it on the body of the three-colored lizard, and ordered the system in his mind, “Evolve the tricolored lizard to level 3.”
“Ding! Level 2 tricolored lizard evolved to level 3, deduct 100 evolution points.”
“Ding! Tricolored Lizard has evolved to level 3 successfully.”
“Ding! Level 3 tricolored lizard’s talent evolution: Mimetic Stealth.”
“Ding! Improving the tamer’s ‘Mimetic Color Change’ ability to level 3 ‘Mimetic Stealth’.”
A familiar warm current appeared in Mu Liang’s body and his body was strengthened once again.
“Stealth? Is it possible to be invisible while in action?” Mu Liang focused his attention on his new abilities.
He immediately activated his ‘Mimetic Stealth’ ability, and the surface of his body changed color as he walked.
“It’s not that there are no shortcomings. There’s a delay of about 1 second between color changes. The faster you move, the greater the delay in color changes.”
“This stealth ability depends on moving slowly, and the delay in changing colors is smaller. It’s actually quite suitable for sneaking around.”
Mu Liang summarized the advantages and disadvantages of the new ability.
The most important thing that he was most satisfied with was that he was able to move while being invisible.
After observing his own changes, Mu Liang looked at the tricolored lizard that had evolved and doubled in size.
Now its body length was two-meter and the color of its scales was no longer striped. Instead, each scale had a distinguished color.
It was a patch of green, a patch of red, and a patch of blue. It looked colorful.
There were a few spikes beside the lizard’s head, and its brown vertical pupils looked very cold.
“Xiao Cai. After you get a pair of wings, then you can even pretend to be a dragon.”
Mu Liang patted the head of the tricolored lizard.
“Hiss~~” The tricolored lizard tilted its head, wondering what a dragon was.
“Stay where you are and help me bring these things back.”
Mu Liang tied the five rolls of cloth, wolf skin, and a bundle of swords to the tricolored lizard.
“Hiss~~” The tricolored lizard twisted its body uncomfortably.
“Go and come over here one more time after Mino helps you untie these things.”
Mu Liang smiled and waved his hand, causing the tricolored lizard to climb out of the window.
“Hiss~~” The tricolor lizard’s claws easily clasped the wall and left claw marks in the wood.
“I have to hurry up, or the chief’s death will be discovered.”
Mu Liang silently left the room and searched the house once again.
At this time, the maids were obediently staying in specific places, waiting for the host’s call.
A horse could not get fat without eating grass.
Mu Liang’s goal this time was food. It wasn’t easy for him to come here, so it would be better if he could get some food.
When he was exploring, he saw a person that was sneaking.
“Huh? Isn’t that guy Agu?”
Mu Liang looked at the other party’s side face and recognized that it was none other than Agu, who had appeared in the hall.
He decided to follow him because of his curiosity. He wanted to see what the other party was doing by sneaking into the chief’s house.
Agu looked left and right. After he didn’t see anyone, he quietly entered a room.
When Mu Liang looked inside from the crack in the door, he was surprised to find that this was a food storage room.
In addition to Agu, there was a maid in the storage room as well.
A word flashed through Mu Liang’s mind, but soon he rejected it.
“Agu, are you crazy? Why are you taking so much meat? If the chief finds out, he will kill you.”
The maid saw that Agu was putting meat in his cloth bag, and he even specially selected good meat.
Agu would often steal some meat and the maid would help him cover up under normal circumstances.
However, the maid couldn’t cover up if so much meat went missing.
“The leader has gone mad. He’s going to work with Bloodbeard to kill some people in the camp who don’t listen to him.”
Agu angrily roared, “I didn’t go to the hill today. I thought that I could interrupt the chief’s plan, but I didn’t expect that he would ‘go mad’ and ask Bloodbeard to attack earlier.”
Yes, he had lied to the chief in the hall, which could be considered a trial.
It turned out that he had already planned to run.
Agu thought that if he didn’t contact the thief scouts, they would be suspicious of each other. He just didn’t expect the chief to personally negotiate with Bloodbeard.
The suspicion could not exist. As long as the two sides met and talked, he would be exposed. At that time, the only thing that awaited him would be death.
Therefore, Agu prepared to escape overnight.
“How can the chief work with Bloodbeard?”
The maid was so frightened that her face turned pale, and she completely lost her composure.
Agu shook the maid and urged her, “Quickly, go back and pack your things.”
“Okay, okay.” The maid regained her senses and nodded.
Mu Liang allowed the maid to leave and stared at Agu in the room, who was still putting dried meat in his cloth bag.
The plan couldn’t keep up with the changes.
He needed to change the plan he had prepared earlier.
