Shen Yanxiao guessed that Shen Feng and Shen Qiu must have hidden the truth because she had already met and knew who the person was. However, his identity was sensitive, so they could only hide it.
It was impossible for that person to be Shen Duan or Shen Yue, and it was also certainly imposible that it was Shen Ling since even he was not aware of this matter. When Shen Duan said that she had been sent back to the Vermillion Bird Clan, Shen Ling was clearly very surprised, and he was not faking it.
It seemed Shen Ling, just like her, thought that it had been Shen Feng who went out to take her back.
If it were not Shen Ling, then who could it be?
There were only a few people left in the Vermillion Bird Clan. And only a living and talented person could let Shen Qiu and Shen Feng have some qualms like this.
So who was it?
Impressively, an elegant and gentle figure appeared in Shen Yanxiao’s mind. She sucked in a breath of cold air and astonishingly looked at Shen Qiu.
Shen Qiu was nervous, and Shen Yanxiao’s gaze made him feel uneasy.
"You... you are thinking too much. You must be tired after dealing with today’s matter. Quickly take a rest. I’ll go now and get the Clan Head’s medicine.” After Shen Qiu said his farewell, he turned around and left.
However, just after a moment, Shen Yanxiao finally opened her mouth.
"Uncle Qiu, where is older brother?”
Shen Qiu's figure became stiff for a moment. He did not turn around to face her and instead just halted his steps and stood stiffly.
"The Clan Head gave Young Master Siyu a task and left some time ago. He hasn’t returned yet…”
"What task? Even when there was such a matter in the residence, older brother still did not come back? Did grandpa not send someone to inform him? Is grandpa not worried that he might have suddenly returned, and because he was not aware of the crisis in the residence, he might have suffered or even been killed?” Shen Yanxiao narrowed her eyes as she opened her mouth and released a series of questions.
Her words sent shivers down his spine. Shen Qiu seemed to be afraid of something.
"I don't know. It might be because it happened so fast that the Clan Head didn’t have the time to do so.”
"It happened so fast?" Shen Yanxiao walked toward Shen Qiu. She looked at his uneasy face.
“Uncle Qiu, I have always been curious. What kind of tasks does the Vermillion Bird Clan give to Older Brother Siyu that he needs to rush outside for many months and not even return after many years? As far as I know, the Vermillion Bird Clan has specific people who manage each of our family businesses. Then, every quarter, they will send the general ledger here. So what kind of work compels Older Brother Siyu to leave the Vermillion Bird Clan? ”
"I don't know..." Shen Qiu did not dare look directly into Shen Yanxiao’s eyes. His heartbeat suddenly accelerated, and he unconsciously showed his nervousness on his face. But no matter what, he did not want to meet Shen Yanxiao’s eyes.
"Don't know? But Uncle Qiu should know when grandpa took Older Brother Siyu as his grandson, right?” When Shen Siyu entered the Vermillion Bird Clan, no one except Shen Feng knew about it. Even Shen Ling only learned a few years ago that Shen Feng had adopted such a grandson. And the reason why Shen Feng adopted Shen Siyu or what Shen Siyu’s origin was, Shen Feng had never mentioned it.
Shen Siyu just suddenly appeared in the Vermillion Bird Clan and became known as Shen Feng’s adopted grandson.
In the entire Vermillion Bird Clan, except for Shen Feng, no one was familiar with Shen Siyu. Shen Siyu had been a member of the Vermillion Bird Clan for ten years now. However, the times that he actually stayed in the household were only a handful. Mostly he would come back five times a year, and every time he came back, he would only stay a few days before leaving again.
Where did he go? What was he doing? Nobody knew.
Shen Feng only said that he had a task for Shen Siyu, but what kind of task was it for Shen Feng to not ask Shen Ling instead, but directly ask his grandson?
Shen Yanxiao had never thought about it before. She was also surprised to realize how she had the best relationship with him yet knew nothing of his location.TEASER
Shen Siyu never had too much of contact with the rest of the Vermillion Bird Clan except to her, the initially idiot little fellow. She was the only one he favored, and every time he would return, he would always bring delicious foods and amusing souvenirs for her. Furthermore, whenever Shen Siyu was around, Shen Jiayi and Shen Jiawei did not dare to hurt her.
This degree of favor and love, even though they were not actually related by blood... What was the reason for it?
Her doubts were like a hole, once it was opened, it could no longer be covered up.
Shen Yanxiao’s questions made Shen Qiu at loss of what to do. He was somewhat regretting, why did he go out this evening just to comfort Shen Yanxiao?
Shen Qiu: Ah, why did I beg author to give me some screentime...Support us & read advance unedited chapter in our patreon! And chat with us in ROW's Server or in our server.
