Picked up a Demon King to be a Maid - Chapter 483: External Stimuli
Chapter 483: External Stimuli
“Cough, cough, okay stop messing around, let’s get back to business. The reason I wanted you to give Sister Ying a checkup is that I suspect that she’s been infected by the plague.”
“Oh? Does she have any festering wounds or has she lost her mind?”
“No, there haven’t been any symptoms yet.”
“So… the incubation period?”
Lin Xiao once asked Snow and she said that the soul-devouring bug can be suppressed by stronger people and enter an incubation period without any symptoms but still risk the chances of it breaking out at any time.
“Hm, you really are worried about her… but don’t worry, it’s fine. It’s completely safe during the incubation period unless there was some strong external stimulation, your vixen will be completely fine.”
“So that means if there were some external stimuli, then it could break out?”
“Damn brother, just stop thinking about it, I’m still busy and have a lot of things to do, so I don’t have the time to give your lover a checkup.”
“But Snow, what if…”
“Ah, you’re so annoying! As long as you find the fruit, then I can create a cure, so even if she does get infected, there’s nothing to be afraid of right?”
“That’s true, but…” Snow wasn’t wrong, but he felt like she just set a huge flag for her and he hesitated.
“Hm… okay, okay, annoying brother, I promise you! How about this, as long as you get me the fruit, I’ll give her a checkup, is that enough?”
“It’s a deal then.”
“… Alright, then stop wasting time and get me the final ingredient!”
After all that, Snow didn’t want to keep listening to her brother worrying about that vixen, so she shooed Lin Xiao away and called Elona back in to help her with her work.
After being chased out, the only thing Lin Xiao could do was to go fetch the fruit. But what he didn’t know was how much of an effect this small thing would have on his future.
Fate is just like that, if he didn’t kiss Claire in front of everyone, then ShenDai Ying and Elena wouldn’t have gotten jealous, if they never got jealous, then they wouldn’t have ambushed Lin Xiao; If they never ambushed Lin Xiao, then he never would have spilled that porridge, and if he never spilled that porridge and dirtied ShenDai Ying’s stockings, then she would have came with Lin Xiao and Snow could have given her a checkup right there and it perhaps could have prevented this incident to come.
So what if something unexpected happens? It may not have been a bad thing for them.
“Sigh, I should stop thinking about it and go look for Barrett.”
Lin Xiao chased away his wild thoughts and hurried to his next destination so that he could get Snow to help. But where should he go to look for Barrett?
If he wasn’t wrong, Barrett should have already returned to the frontlines as per Claire’s orders, so should he also go?
No, no… even if he really went, he might not get any useful information and instead be roped in to help.
After pondering it over, Lin Xiao decided to go to Claire first.
Since Claire was the king’s representative and controlled the country’s resources, she might even have one in the country’s vaults, then that way he wouldn’t have to go looking all over for one, but…
Speaking of Claire, Lin Xiao felt a bit awkward…
He just rejected her a couple of days ago, so would it be okay to go to her now?
Although Claire had a tomboyish personality and shouldn’t take it to heart, but Lin Xiao still felt guilty and was worried about Claire crying again.
But… thinking about it, he already helped Claire several times, so there should be no problem getting her to help.
Actually, Lin Xiao’s concerns were completely unnecessary. Claire never gave up on her feelings for him, but he underestimated her sincerity.
Claire now wouldn’t cry uselessly or use annoying ways to put Lin Xiao in a difficult spot.
“It should be here, right?”
Lin Xiao came back to that huge house following the route that he could remember. When he saw the two guards outside he knew he was at the right place. He began thinking about what he should say as he walked towards the door.
But something suddenly changed! When the two guards saw him, before he even did anything, they started running towards him.
