“Father, Xiaoxiao has just recently recovered her mental state. Having her undertake so many things so fast… I’m afraid that she isn’t too suitable. Why don’t we allow the other disciples in our clan to assist her a little bit? It’d also be good to allow her to have some time to train.” Shen Yue immediately accorded. Although he and Shen Duan were on bad terms, their thoughts right now were the same.
Shen Yanxiao was merely an accessory of the Vermillion Bird, her personal strength was just too miserable. Perhaps this was a good thing when talking about them. Even if they’d been unable to obtain the Vermillion Bird, their children had nevertheless had the chance to to succeed the Vermillion Bird Clan. So long as their own children were sufficiently formidable, and were able to withstand the clan leaders of the other 4 large clans, then Shen Yanxiao would only need to preserve the Vermillion Bird, and have the Vermillion Bird in order to deal with the other 4 large clans’ mythological beasts—just that would be sufficient already.
Rather than saying that Shen Yanxiao was the Vermillion Bird’s master, it’d actually be better to say that she was acting as the Vermillion Bird’s vessel.
Trash is precisely a that: trash. Even if she’d obtained the Vermillion Bird, so what? Her own strength was so lacking that she simply didn’t deserve the clan leader position.
Shen Yanxiao, whom was to the side, was still listening. Towards these two elders of hers that seemed to have good intentions, she was truly sneering in her heart.
They were truly being benevolent! If she’d been unable to guess the subtle intentions on their minds, then she’d have truly lived in vain for her entire previous life. They were simply planning to have her become the Vermillion Bird Clan’s puppet in order to assist their own children’s chances to ascend to the position of clan leader.
The reason why they’d dared to be unbridled was because one of them, Shen Yanxiao’s strength, was indeed lacking, and because it’d be hard for her to withstand the other four clan leaders. The second reason was that Shen Yanxiao had lost both her parents, and she simply didn’t have anyone to rely on behind her back.
Were they truly treating her as a pushover? Did they truly think that she was easy to bully? Shen Yanxiao inwardly stored Shen Yue and Shen Duan’s intentions in her heart; sooner or later, she’d have them pay her back in full.
Everyone was waiting for Shen Feng’s decision. Shen Duan and Shen Yue were nervous, because they knew that their own father had previously never been close with Shen Yanxiao. Moreover, although what they’d just said was partially selfish, it was nevertheless a fact still.
How could a piece of trash possibly take the position of clan leader?
Shen Feng was taciturn for a long time, as his sight fell on Shen Yanxiao’s smiling face. This child’s appearance was said to have no resemblance of her parents, but when she’d smiled now, there had nevertheless been just a hint of Shen Yu from in the past.. Shen Feng’s gaze seemed to have sunk a little, and then, taking a deep breath, he said, “Since Xiaoxiao is to inherit the position of the clan leader in the future, she nevertheless has to suffer these hardships, else how could she take bigger responsibilities upon herself?!”
Shen Feng was supporting Shen Yanxiao till the end.
Shen Feng’s persistence not only had Shen Yue and Shen Duan incessantly astonished, even Shen Yanxiao felt a trace of unconvincingness.
What those two scoundrel uncles of hers had said had actually been quite reasonable, and in accordance with Shen Feng’s temperament of the former days, it was most likely that he’d select their proposition. However, today, what kind of ghost had Shen Feng met such that he’d unexpectedly help her so much?
Was this because of the Vermillion Bird? However, in their eyes, she was merely the Vermillion Bird’s vessel; it still hadn’t reached the point where it needed this much of attachment of importance.
Shen Feng’s approach truly made Shen Yanxiao very hard to understand.
“Father! Xiaoxiao can’t cultivate any magic or Dou Qi however! If you’re to permit her to ascend to the position of the clan leader, then someday in the future…” Shen Duan still wanted to persuade Shen Feng, but he’d already impatiently interrupted his words.
“She’s my granddaughter. Even if she’s unable to cultivate Dou Qi and magic, if it wasn’t something to be alarmed off. In this entire world, don’t tell me that, besides cultivating Dou Qi and magic, there just isn’t any other ways for her to to defend herself with? Stupid!” Shen Feng was somewhat angry for the two sons of his that’d ad repeatedly opposed him and this made him somewhat displeased.
“I’ve already made the proper preparations. After a month, the Holy Roland School will begin recruiting a new batch of students, and when the time comes, I’ll have Xiaoxiao enter the Holy Roland School’s field of pharmacy.”
