Chapter 269: Fair (2)
“I’m trying to help you. Do you want to know the answer or not, Fengfeng?” Qu Lanyi chuckled and walked to Yun Feng. Yun Feng’s lips curled. “This is the Yun family’s business. We don’t need an outsider’s help.”
Qu Lanyi wasn’t upset at all. Instead, she chuckled and smiled again, as if nothing that Yun Feng said could possibly infuriate her. “Fengfeng, that’s too outrageous. Your brother doesn’t want to tell you, so I offered to help. You should accept my kindness. Don’t you agree, Yun Sheng?”
Qu Lanyi looked at Yun Sheng with her alluring eyes. Yun Sheng became pale, and hesitated, as if he had thought of something. She said, “If you don’t want to hear it from me, so be it. Here’s a friendly reminder. Your brother doesn’t want to tell you because he’s afraid that you might do something reckless.”
Yun Sheng became even paler, and slightly shivered. “H-How could you…” Yun Sheng looked at Qu Lanyi in surprise, and Qu Lanyi chuckled, with her eyes glittering. “Fengfeng, you owe me a favor. I’m leaving.” Qu Lanyi turned around and walked away casually, leaving Yun Sheng and Yun Feng alone. Yun Feng turned around and looked at her brother’s pale face.
“Did Kasa, or rather, the royal family of Karan, do anything?” Yun Feng gnashed her teeth, and even roared towards the end. Hearing that, Yun Sheng grabbed her shoulder, his eyes filled with gentleness and worries. “Feng, it’s not what happened…”
“Big brother! If I’m bullied yet there’s nothing you can do, how would you feel? Do you understand what I’m feeling right now!” Yun Feng screamed in pain. Yun Sheng bit his lips and didn’t say anything. He knew his sister’s feelings. However…
Seeing that her big brother remained silent, Yun Feng suddenly burst into fury. She threw off her big brother’s hands and stormed off. Seeing that, Yun Sheng shouted, “Yun Feng, if you do anything reckless, don’t ever call me big brother again!”
Yun Feng’s body was stiffened, and Yun Sheng seemed to be miserable too. Dazed for a long time, Yun Feng finally replied in a low voice, “Okay, I won’t do anything reckless…” Then, as if she had lost all her strength, she walked away like a ghost. Mu Xiaojin, who was waiting in the distance, greeted her worriedly, “Xiao Feng, what’s wrong?”
Yun Feng managed a smile at Mu Xiaojin. “Xiaojin, go help my big brother. I’d like some alone time.”
Mu Xiaojin was going to say something more, when Yun Feng had passed her and disappeared into the crowd. Mu Xiaojin gazed in her direction worriedly for a long time, before finally walking to Yun Sheng. Seeing that Yun Sheng was unhappy too, she whispered, “Brother Yun Sheng, Xiao Feng has been concerned about you, and talked about you all the time before we came to the Masang School of Magic. She was so happy to meet you again…”
Yun Sheng was miserable to hear that. His eyes were rather hot, but he didn’t say anything. He struggled to put on a smile. He knew that her sister was as protective of him as he was of her! That was exactly the reason why he didn’t tell her the answer. He didn’t want Yun Feng to take risks or get hurt because of him!
Behind the Masang School of Magic was a spacious forest. The land there was rather flat, and the green forest was very beautiful. However, few visitors had been to the forest except for the love birds. Most students preferred to spend their time in the Trial Tower to improve their level.
Yun Feng walked into the forest and sat down on an enormous rock. She stared at the trees, with countless thoughts rolling in her heart. Why did her big brother refuse to tell her? If it was because of her, then something big must’ve happened. There could’ve only been two people who had hurt her big brother: Murong Ran and Kasa.
Yun Feng thought again and again and believed that the Karan Royal Family was the culprit, as his big brother was concerned about it more than anything else. The Karan Royal Family had asked their father to move the Yun family back to the capital, only to be declined. After that, the Yun family must’ve become the Karan Royal Family’s enemy. Although it didn’t attack the Yun family directly, it could still suppress Yun Sheng through Kasa. If you don’t want the carrot, all you get will be the stick.
Seated on the rock, Yun Feng thought quietly. The only explanation she could come up with was that the Karan Royal Family had been imposing pressure on Yun Sheng through Kasa, so he was too prudent to level up too fast. The Yun family was already an eyesore to the Karan Royal Family. If Yun Feng became too strong, the Karan Royal Family would be even more scared of the Yun family. Once it ran out of patience, it might even attack the Yun family.
Yun Feng thought of herself. The only reason that the Karan Royal Family was using these dirty methods instead of dealing with the Yun family openly was that the Yun family still had a chance of presenting a summoner. She might be the hope of her family.
Thinking of that, Yun Feng couldn’t help but put on a cold smile. Whether or not she was a summoner, the Yun family’s development was unstoppable, so it would inevitably pose a threat to the Karan Royal Family. She slowly raised her head and looked at the blue sky. It was time that the Yun family became independent.
“Are you enjoying the wonderful landscape here, Fengfeng?”
Without looking back, Yun Feng said in a low voice, “Why do you keep following me? Do you have nothing better to do?”
Qu Lanyi slowly sat down next to Yun Feng. She raised her head too, like Yun Feng did. Her black hair fluttered behind her head like a bright black waterfall. Holding her head with her arms, she turned around and said, “The best thing I want to do is to come for you. After all, you’re the only person that’s as strong as myself.”
Yun Feng sat straight, and Qu Lanyi simply lay on the rock. Her blue clothes flapped along with the breeze, and she narrowed her beautiful eyes comfortably. Yun Feng remained silent, so Qu Lanyi opened her eyes and looked at her profile.
