Shen Yanxiao pursed her lips and said, “These are all the things that your clan has helped me sell off, and the money used to buy these things is also something that your clan has helped me spend.”
If you want money, I don’t have any to give you; if you want my life… I have even less to give you!
Looking at the pair of large, quick-witted eyes in front of him, Qi Xia lightly smiled. This little bastard was seriously too cute; when thieves were normally caught, which one of them wouldn’t be trembling all over right now? And yet, this little bastard was unexpectedly still in the mood to tease him.
“You can be at ease, we won’t do anything to you.”
“Therefore…?” Could you please withdraw your claws!
“Therefore, although we don’t plan to look into it, we after all already become friends. As a fellow friend, could it be that you have no intention to do anything to make up, at least a bit, for these few frail, wounded hearts?” Qi Xia’s smile had become especially treacherous.
Shen Yanxiao gazed at Tang Nazhi, who was sitting with his legs crossed and a pondering look on his face. She then gazed at that rigid face, which had a single hand supporting his chin. Finally, she gazed at Yan Yu, who was sitting at the betting table with a smile.
Someone please explain to her how these few scoundrels could appear to have the frail hearts of quails!
“Don’t you feel that it’s an extremely immoral thing to violate the merchants’ prestige by leaking your employer’s information to outsiders like this?” Although she didn’t know why, Shen Yanxiao’s intuition told her that no matter what, these people didn’t have any malicious thoughts towards her..
Shrugging his shoulders, Qi Xia tranquilly said, “The Qilin Clan’s rule is that, so long as we have the money, all our other problems will no longer be an issue.”
In other words, these scoundrels had given this beast quite a large sum of gold, and then, just like it was proper and expected, he’d sold her out?!
Shameless! Too shameless!
Shen Yanxiao, who’d always held herself as someone extremely shameless, suddenly felt like a small-time magician that was in the presence of a great one as she stood in front of Qi Xia. So much so that she felt that she’d never been as pure and simple as today.
“How do you want me to make up for the loss?” To set herself against the other four large clans didn’t conform to her principle. Even if she had Xiu and the Vermillion Bird to protect her, if she were to confront all four of them together, it would still not be very desirable.
“Is your stealing technique very strong?” Qi Xia raised his eyebrows questioningly.
The corner of Shen Yanxiao’s mouth was suddenly evoked, and she raised her small hand. Surprisingly, 7 deeds that held the Qilin Clan’s crest were now grasped within that small hand.
“…” The 101 smiling face that was on Qi Xia for the first time, appeared a trace of crack. [TN: The 101 smiling face means someone is smiling till one’s eyes are squinted into ‘一’ and one’s mouth forming an ‘o’]
Weren’t these precisely the 7 auction houses’ deeds that he’d taken out as his stake? Just when had those deeds fallen into this little demon’s hands! He clearly remembered that he himself had already put those deeds back into his storage…
Fuck! The storage ring that was on his hand!
Astonished, Qi Xia looked down at his own glossy claw, then back up at Shen Yanxiao’s right hand, where there had suddenly appeared an extremely familiar-looking storage ring…
“Plop! Haha! Unexpectedly, there was someone able to take something from this cheapskate? Oh my gosh, I can’t, I’m about to die from laughter!” As Tang Nazhi spread out on his chair, his laugh didn’t have any class, and was quite boisterous.
The corners of Yan Yu and Yang Xi’s mouths also faintly rose.
It was quite evident that not a single one of them had discovered Shen Yanxiao’s action. They simply didn’t know when she could’ve made her move. Was it not that this little bastard had just performed a gorgeous stealing technique in front of them, and deliberately allowed them to discover the fruit of her efforts? It was very likely that if she hadn’t, they’d still be completely in the dark right now.
“What do you think?” Shen Yanxiao raised her eyebrow with disdain as she gazed at a certain sly fox.
Qi Xia’s mental strength was strong enough that he’d immediately resumed his former beaming appearance.
“It’s very strong. In that case, to make up for their losses, are you willing to join us?”
“Join you?” Shen Yanxiao was somewhat suspicious.
