Chapter 41: Arrogant Little Bird (2)
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
How could Shen Yanxiao not know of Shen Yue and the other’s opinions?
However, as an outsider, Shen Yanxiao thought of things more deeply than Shen Yue.
If it were merely to prevent the Vermilion Bird Family from embarrassment before the sage, then they would lose face anyway, even if she was not on the list.
Shen Yifeng had no plans to go easy on the twins, even if Shen Yanxiao did not participate in the contest and it was an inevitable fact for those twins to get crushed. With her image of a trash that had neither brains or strength, she would merely be more of an embarassment compared to the twins.
Therefore, Shen Yanxiao knew that Shen Feng added her name to the contest for another purpose.
“No matter the reason, this is a great opportunity for you. So why should you be perplexed over the intentions?” Xiu’s voice was still ice-cold like snow. In his opinion, there was no need to consider the circumstances. No matter what Shen Feng’s intentions were, it was a golden opportunity bestowed by heaven for her to have the chance to stand before the Vermilion Bird.
Shen Yanxiao curled her lips. Xiu behaved as if the Vermilion Bird was guaranteed to be hers, but she was not confident.
She had only arrived in this world for a short period, and she wasn’t even clear about the concept of a magical beast, let alone a mythological beast that stood at the top of the food chain?
“Opportunities also have to be grasped. Didn’t you hear them saying that the Vermilion Bird has been lying dormant for hundreds of years? None of them could obtain its favor and with just my current physical state…” It was a good thing to have confidence, but blind self-confidence would only lead to a disaster. Even though Shen Yanxiao was confident, she was extremely cautious in the face of unfamiliar matters.
That had been her habit and allowed her to succeed repeatedly and not get arrested. As a thief goddess, skills was important, but sufficient preparations ahead of time was also a must.
To her, the Vermilion Bird was just like a huge hundred-carat diamond that was kept in a highly dangerous place that she had never heard of.
There were plenty of good items. However, they were only considered as a good item if she was confident that she could obtain it.
“It’s only a little bird.” Xiu snorted and disapproved of Shen Yanxiao’s over-cautiousness.
There he goes again…
That had to be some kind of acknowledgment for the mythological Vermilion Bird to be called an ‘little bird’, when a certain lord had regarded an eight-ranked magical beast as a ‘little beast.’
Shen Yanxiao remained silent, but Xiu’s words caused her to think of something. She hesitated and asked, “From your tone, you know the Vermilion Bird?”
There were no undulations with Xiu’s voice as he spoke with an aloof and remote tone. “It’s not worthy for me to get acquainted with it. I merely know of its master.”
Shen Yanxiao’s eyes brightened!
Xiu’s identity was full of mysteries, and with her understanding of him during this period, she knew that he had an arrogant personality. If he said that he was acquainted with the Vermilion Bird’s master, then he must have genuinely knew him!
Speaking of which…
How old was that guy anyway? The Vermilion Bird hadn’t reappeared in the world for a hundred years, and if Xiu was acquainted with its owner, then that must have been something that happened more than a hundred years ago.
If Xiu had lived in this world a hundred years ago, wouldn’t that mean he was more than a hundred years old?!
Shen Yanxiao could not believe that the slightly cold and cheerless voice that seemed to belong to a young man was actually from an ‘old man’ who was more than a hundred years old! He sounded like he was still in his early twenties!
