“…the gambling stakes that you all took out just now, they were all fake?” Shen Yanxiao finally understood.
Qi Xia opened his mouth and replied, “Nope.”
“My deeds are indeed real.”
“…”Shen Yanxiao was speechless. After gambling for such a long time, the majority of the rare treasures they’d presented, which had frightened the group of bystanders nearly to death, had turned out to only be imitation products. If the casino’s boss were to know that his own casino had been swindled with a few mere imitation products… she was unsure what sort of thoughts that would invoke.
“So, prior to this, all of you were simply putting on an act, and the reason was precisely to swindle this casino.” Shen Yanxiao wasn’t asking them, but was rather confirming her thought.
She’d already felt that the situation was somewhat fishy long ago, but had to decided to just mind her own business. She hadn’t had much interest in saying anything extra, and only treated it as her watching a play. It was just that she hadn’t expected the stage props for this play to be this real.
“Smart!”Tang Nazhi snapped his fingers.
These four bastards weren’t some sort of arch-enemies—they were a group of best buddies! Shen Yanxiao rubbed her eyes; weren’t the 5 large clans secretly arguing and fighting very seriously? Why was it that these four beast’s relationship appeared to be quite good in contrast?
“We’ve shown you something embarassing, but having watched this play, that can be your compensation.”
Shen Yanxiao raised her eyebrows, and her small hand was extended palm-open.
“Have my winnings exchanged for gold coins. Thank you.”
“…”The four rich and overbearing young masters immediately gazed dumbfoundedly up at the sky.
“Ahem, ahem…” Qi Xia was evidently somewhat caught by surprise by Shen Yanxiao’s sudden action. Clearing his throat, he had then smilingly said, “This bill naturally won’t lack your portion. However, before that, they still have a bill that they want to settle with you.”
Shen Yanxiao wasn’t too clear on Qi Xia’s meaning. However, after the others heard him, they nevertheless exposed out an appearance of sudden realisation. Even Tang Nazhi’s gaze towards Shen Yanxiao also appeared somewhat fishy.
Tang Nazhi gazed with astonishment at Shen Yanxiao, and somewhat strenuously, asked Qi Xia, “Xia, that thief that you previously told me about, who stole my older sister’s ocean-blue jewelry, should, as unlikely as it seems, be precisely Shen Jue, right?!”
Qi Xia nodded.
Shen Yanxiao suddenly sensed a burst of black clouds push her head down. An ominous premonition rose in her heart.
The reason as of why she’d previously dared to have the things she stole sent to the Qilin Auction House was precisely because she was sure that the other clans wouldn’t go to the Qilin Auction House to look. However, as of now, the appearance of these four beasts’ arms around each other’s shoulders…and Tang Nazhi’s question…Shen Yanxiao was certain that Qi Xia, this bastard, had absolutely sold her out!
“If that set that I sold to you is correct, then I shouldn’t be wrong that it is precisely her.” Qi Xia didn’t have the slightest bit of consciousness selling out his client, only a face of relaxedness and indifference.
This scoundrel! After selling her out, he still had the audacity to sell lost items back to their owner! This was sentencing her to death!
A shark! A big shark!
Shen Yanxiao profoundly felt that she herself had been plotted against by Qi Xia.
Yang Xi suddenly walked forward till he was before Shen Yanxiao. Looking at the little guy who barely reached his chest, he slightly lowered his body to meet Shen Yanxiao eye to eye.
“Did you have all the precious stones and golden edges of my Green Jade Sword scraped off?”
“…”Shen Yanxiao vaguely remembered that seemingly, as if, almost she herself…had truly done this kind of deranged thing at some point.
“My mother’s white jade chess piece also.” Yan Yu subsequently spoke.
“…”Shen Yanxiao was helpless now that all of the victims’ families had gathered together!
Was she going to run away? Or run away? Or run away?
The circumstances before her eyes weren’t right, and Shen Yanxiao already wanted to retreat.
However, just as she turned around and prepared to slip away, a certain beast’s claw hung onto her shoulder.
“Don’t be impatient.” A treacherous, fox-like smile was on Qi Xia’s face.
