Edward's face turned grim. Zachary played him and got him ensnared in his own trap. He had to cooperate now. Otherwise, he would risk arousing Tracy's suspicion.

As soon as Edward and the three disciples of the Xiao Clan were taken away, Tracy yelled at Zachary, "Cut it out already. You're injured, but I can see that your breath is steady and your martial energy is flowing smoothly."

"It seems that I'm a bad actor then," Zachary said, bursting into laughter.

"Who the hell was the dead man? If he was not a disciple of the Xiao Clan, why was he wearing their clothes? Was he going to kill you and frame the Xiao Clan for your murder?" Tracy mused. She totally could not understand it.

"I don't know if he was a disciple of the Xiao Clan or not, but he claimed himself to be the killer from the Moon Shadow," Zachary replied.

Tracy's jaw dropped. If that man was really a killer from the Moon Shadow, then things were obviously more complicated than she had thought.

"Why did the killer from the Moon Shadow want to kill you?" Tracy asked with raised eyebrows.

"I don't know. My best guess is that I offended someone by accident who didn't want to get their hands dirty in the process of seeking revenge, so they hired him to kill me," Zachary answered. Although he knew that it was Anthony who hired the killer to kill him, he could not tell Tracy without any solid evidence. But he believed that she would know what he meant.

Tracy's expression turned cold. Apparently, she also thought of Anthony to be the man behind all this.

"How about I let you deal with this matter on your own? I won't interfere. This place is crawling with the disciples of the Xiao Clan. This first clue would definitely lead somewhere. I don't want to get myself into any more trouble, so I won't look into it. It's all yours," Zachary declared. Tracy would definitely deal with this matter seriously. After all, Zachary was an exchange student sent by the Celestial College. If anybody under their roof were in danger of gett

er side. He was surprised to see Zachary.

"Oh, it's you, Harley. Why are you here?" Nelson asked, walking up to Zachary. He had never seen Zachary there at night.

"Well, I have an appointment with the two ladies. They asked me to wait for them here," Zachary replied and smiled.

"Wow. You're a lucky man," Nelson replied with wide eyes.

"I don't know about that. I don't even have a bed in there, so I have to stay here. Poor me," Zachary said playfully.

Nelson burst into laughter and said, "You promised me something last time. I wonder when you're going to fulfill it, buddy."

"Promised you something? Oh, I remember it!" Zachary exclaimed. He had promised to lend Nelson the Thunder Dragon Horse for his research.

"If it's too difficult for you, just forget it," Nelson said thoughtfully.

"It's not that it's difficult. It's just that Kiwi has a bad temper. I'm afraid it's not happy around strangers," Zachary explained. His Thunder Dragon Horse was obedient to its owner, but it was very wary of strangers.

"It doesn't matter. I've been dealing with treasure beasts since I was a child. I've seen many bad-tempered treasure beasts," Nelson said confidently. He stared at Zachary with expectant eyes, which made the hair on the back of Zachary's neck stand on end. Zachary got goose bumps as he stared back at Nelson.
