The duty of personal bodyguards was very important. They protected Xue Lu and came to an unfamiliar place.
According to their professional ethics, they should immediately determine the escape route, as well as every possible corner of the Tibetan population. What should they do if an enemy suddenly launched a sneak attack? What should they do if someone was secretly observing General Xue Lu?
The other four bodyguards behaved in a standard manner. Only the tall and sturdy bodyguard, although he was also doing these things, paid more attention to Xue Lu.
No one could see this small detail out of the door, but Xiang Nan could see something from the guard's eyes that no one else could see.
That person gave Xiang Nan the impression that Xue Lu was not the target he wanted to protect, but his target!
Xiang Nan's gaze did not escape the gaze of the tall and sturdy guard. The guard glanced at Xiang Nan and found that Xiang Nan did not have any spiritual energy fluctuations, so he no longer placed Xiang Nan in his eyes.
"Is it an illusion?" Xiang Nan lowered his head and pondered. Was that tall and sturdy guard really harboring evil intentions towards Jiang Xuelu, or was it just because he was attracted to her appearance?
Both are possible.
Xiang Nan's heart was filled with concern.
The performance entered the Gao Dynasty (harmony) stage. Xiang Nan on the stage had already begun to say something righteous. He was going to launch a fatal blow against Yue Donghai.
Although she already knew the result, Xue Lu was still extremely nervous. She tightly grabbed onto the corner of her clothes and her entire emotions were stirred up. Her eyes did not leave Xiang Nan's majestic figure for a moment.
Even the guards were slightly excited. Everyone looked at the stage.
Xiang Nan looked at Jiang Xue Lu. He discovered that a tiny bit of starry powder flew into Jiang Xue Lu's teacup!
The powder floated behind her, right beside the tall and sturdy guard!
Poisoning? Xiang Nan's eyes turned cold.
Luo Xiao's performance today was exceptionally hard. In order to please Jiang Xue Lu, he used all of his strength to suck up to her, and even the veins on his forehead were jumping wildly.
Finally, Xiang Nan once again defeated Yue Donghai on the stage and ended up with a successful conclusion.
The general stood up and applauded, "Alright!"
All the actors came out and headed forward under Liu Dongyuan's lead
When Xiang Nan picked up Xue Lu's teacup and wanted to drink water, he shouted, "Don't squeeze, don't squeeze." Then, he staggered over and knocked the teacup over.
A guard quickly dodged over and placed the knife on Xiang Nan's neck. At the same time, he blocked Xue Lu's body, preventing the tea from spilling on her.
"Xiang Bei!" Liu Dongyuan was shocked. He hurriedly pretended to berate Xiang Nan and said, "Why are you so reckless?"
Jiang Xuelu didn't care much about it. She waved her hand and said, "It's a small matter, don't take it to heart."
"Guild Leader Liu, today's performance is very exciting. Let's set it down like this. The day after tomorrow will be my father's 80th birthday. I will hire your Moonlight Tour Team to come to my mansion to perform the birthday celebration."
Liu Dongyuan felt refreshed and thanked Jiang Xuelu again and again.
After everyone left, Liu Dongyuan scolded Xiang Nan.
After it dissipated, Xiang Nan lifted the corner of his clothes and placed it beside his nose to smell it.
His clothes were stained with tea and his sense of smell was used to analyze the poison in the tea.
But after smelling it, he felt very helpless. The poison ingredients inside could not be considered poisonous, but a very faint aphrodisiac powder.
Its medicinal properties weren't too fierce, at most, it made Jiang Xuelu feel hot and dry.
"Looks like I'm overthinking it." Xiang Nan shook his head and said, "Perhaps the bodyguard really admired General Xue Lu and wanted to use some dirty tricks to get her."
What do you mean, aphrodisiac powder? Everyone knows that it can make women have strong lust.
However, if it was placed less and more times, it would have another peculiar effect.
That is, every time this woman drinks a small amount of aphrodisiac powder, she sees you and feels excited. She also has a faint feeling of wanting to be intimate with you, although this feeling can be suppressed.
Over time, she gets the illusion that she's in love with you.
"Xiang Bei, you come. Today, I'll teach you how to put on makeup." Xiao Wan ran out of nowhere and dragged Xiang Nan to the dressing room.
The girls were squeezed into the dressing room, chatting excitedly. They couldn't wait to open their eyes.
Seeing Xiang Bei coming over, the girls immediately surrounded him.
"Xiang Bei, Xiao Wan treats you well."
"That's right. I think Xiao Wan has a crush on you."
"Don't disappoint our Xiaowan's kindness."
Under the teasing of the girls, Xiang Nan felt extremely embarrassed.
Xiao Wan laughed and scolded, "You don't need to rest anymore? You're talking nonsense here."
"Come, Xiang Bei, let me introduce you to the simple process of putting on makeup. Help me put it on and practice."
"When you become proficient in the future, you can put on your own makeup."
"Huh? I'm wearing makeup?" Xiang Nan was holding a small brush.
Knife, he's holding it very steadily, but this kind of thing? It was the first time he had experienced it.
After a clumsy massage, Xiao Wan finally changed from a beautiful girl to a slanted-eyed girl.
The girls all laughed and burst into tears as they lay on the dressing table.
Xiao Wan looked at herself in the mirror. She turned to look at Xiang Nan and said, "What do you think?"
Xiang Nan looked at it seriously for a while and said seriously, "Not bad, it's pretty."
Xiao Wan rolled her eyes helplessly. "You're right. I was wrong. I should have taught you how to appreciate beauty first."
Three days later, the General's Mansion.
Jiang Yong was a famous figure in the vicinity. The clans here were much more powerful than the clans in the Southern Domain.
Because there was no political power in the exiled continent, it was a state of separatist rule. Almost all the martial artists on the continent were controlled by their clans.
To a certain extent, the clans living in exile on the continent were equivalent to warlords and martial arts sects.
Jiang Yong was not the Great Clan Chief of the Jiang Clan. He was only the Clan Chief of a branch of the Xiaoyao Sea Region, but his status was also very impressive.
The entire General's Mansion was overjoyed. All sorts of great figures came to celebrate their birthday. There were countless handsome men and beautiful women, mostly young people from prominent backgrounds.
Although Jiang Yong was already eighty years old, he looked more like a middle-aged man in his early forties. He had long black hair, bright eyes, and possessed the eighth level of the Heavenly Yuan Realm.
Jiang Yong's eightieth birthday was to be held for twenty days in a row, and the Moonlight Tour would also perform twenty shows in a row. During this period, Xiang Nan and the others would be staying in the General's Mansion.
However, against this bustling and lively background, Xiang Nan saw an unusual atmosphere.
He couldn't say what was wrong with him, but he felt very awkward.
This kind of feeling was akin to him breaking into a dangerous area with beast traps everywhere on the ground.
"Is something going to happen to the General's Mansion?" Xiang Nan thought for a moment. If he could save Jiang Xuelu or Jiang Yong, this would bring him closer to them.
