Chapter 22: Demanding an Exorbitant Amount (1)

“If my memory serves me correctly, Shen Jiayi’s magic should have reached the fifth rank. Is Second Uncle trying to say that Shen Jiayi, who is a fifth-ranked magic user, was injured by Xiaoxiao, who does not have a single ounce of battle aura or magic?” Shen Siyu’s usually gentle face showed a hint of anger. That trace of anger gave the typically elegant and polite young man an imposing aura.

Shen Yue had also sensed Shen Siyu’s powerful and oppressive aura, and that was why he was secretly a little apprehensive about the situation at hand.

How powerful was that kid to release such a powerful aura!

An idiot without any battle aura or magic could injure a fifth-ranked magic apprentice? If that information were to leak out, it would undoubtedly become the number one joke in Longxuan Empire for the next hundred years.

Not even Shen Yue could accept such a fact, let alone Shen Feng. If that were true, wouldn’t that mean that the daughter that he had been so proud of was inferior to an idiotic trash?

Shen Yue’s face paled, and then it turned green, and lastly, purple.

“Jiawei, tell us exactly what happened.” Shen Feng questioned as he furrowed his brows. The incident had happened in Shen Yanxiao’s room and the most logical outcome of Shen Jiayi and Shen Jiawei’s appearance in her room was that she’d be the one in trouble. However, the opposite of that reasonable hypothesis had happened, with an unconscious Shen Jiayi and a pale-faced Shen Jiawei.

Shen Jiawei was quite fearful of the usually reserved Shen Feng. Even though he was his grandfather, they were not very close.

When his grandfather called him by his name, Shen Jiawei gulped and unconsciously looked at Shen Yanxiao who stayed hidden and protected behind Shen Siyu. That Shen Yanxiao seemed to have returned to her former ignorant self, and that previous wicked appearance had disappeared entirely. Even so, that brief scene was firmly imprinted in his mind, and he didn’t know why he didn’t feel any contempt or disdain when he looked at Shen Yanxiao then. Instead, he felt only an overwhelming sense of unwillingness.

“Say something!” Shen Yue got extremely angry when he saw his son stared ahead blankly like a fool.

Shen Jiawei quivered and hastily said,” I-I don’t know anything. It was sis who tasked me to guard the door from the outside, so I don’t know what had happened inside the room.”

If it were a regular occasion, Shen Jiawei would frame Shen Yanxiao without a moment of hesitation. Even if he weren’t a witness to the situation, he would still shift the blame onto her. However, there seemed to be a huge weight that pressed upon his heart, and he did not dare to slander her.

He did not wish to see that horrible smile on her face again.

“Guard the door?” Shen Siyu shot an angry glance at Shen Jiawei, and he immediately shrunk his neck like a frightened quail and hid to the side.

Shen Feng’s frown deepened. They still had no clue as to what had happened, and Shen Yanxiao’s wisdom was only like a four-year-old child. He knew he would not be able to get her to divulge any useful information, and Shen Jiayi was still unconscious.

“Let’s bring her back for now and have Shen Qiu to check up on her. Do you all think that the recent happenings aren’t enough? Why are you all still standing here? Go and do what you should be doing!” Shen Feng had a headache. At that time, he was supposed to put all of his focus to awaken the Vermilion Bird, but who would have thought that he also had to care about pointless arguments between unruly kids?

With Shen Feng’s orders, everyone had no choice but to do as he said.

Shen Yue was extremely unsatisfied, but he decided to leave with Shen Jiayi and Shen Jiawei. Shen Feng had also left after he gave out a few more orders.
