Shen Siyu never had too much contact with the rest of the Vermillion Bird Clan aside from her, the initially idiotic 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 for what to do. He was somewhat regretful-- why did he go out this evening, just to comfort Shen Yanxiao?
"Little Xiao, don't ask too much. Your Older Brother Siyu has been very fond of you, hasn't he? That's enough. You don't need to ask about other things." Shen Qiu was helpless. He could only evade Shen Yanxiao's inquiries. He feared that once Shen Yanxiao discovered some things, they could no longer conceal the truth.
Shen Yanxiao looked at Shen Qiu's restless eyes, and then softly said, “The one who had sent me home that time, it was Shen Siyu, right?”
Shen Qiu sucked in a mouthful of cold air and looked at Shen Yanxiao in shock, his eyes full of panic.
“Older Brother Siyu is not Grandpa's grandson at all. The reason why he had always left the Vermillion Bird Clan Residence was not because he needs to handle Grandpa’s matters, right?” Shen Yanxiao narrowed her eyes. Shen Siyu’s smile flashed in her mind. The youth’s face that was as gentle as jade was now gradually becoming blurry.
Shen Qiu clenched his teeth, he really did not know how to respond.
“Is he in the Vermillion Bird Clan because of me?” Shen Yanxiao involuntarily speculated. The Vermillion Bird Clan had been in a crisis, yet Shen Siyu did not appear at all. This matter was even known by Luo De so how could Shen Siyu, who was a member of the Vermillion Bird Clan, not know about the changes in the residence? But he did not come forward to stop it.
Shen Yanxiao vaguely felt that the only reason why Shen Siyu was staying in the Vermillion Bird Clan was her, and that, only when it came to her affairs would he come forward.
"Little Xiao, there are some things you better not know." In the end, Shen Qiu couldn't continue to escape Shen Yanxiao's questions. He sighed heavily and looked at Shen Yanxiao.
“Uncle Qiu, please tell me, I don’t want to be a fool who doesn’t know anything. I want to know who my benefactor was and who my family were.” In the world, she cherished only two relatives. One was Shen Feng, and the other was Shen Siyu. She did not want to be ignorant about the identity of her loved ones.
Shen Qiu was having somewhat of a hard time; he struggled for a moment before finally saying,
"This matter, since you have already guessed most of it, then I will tell you the truth. With your temper, I'm afraid you’re not going to give up until you get to the bottom of this."
Shen Yanxiao’s heart was elated; Shen Qiu was finally willing to tell her everything.
Shen Qiu went to the side of the stone bench to sit down, and then he patted the space on the stone bench next to him, "Sit down. I will tell you what you want to know. Only after tonight, I hope you can forget everything you heard."
Shen Yanxiao obediently sat down beside Shen Qiu.
Shen Qiu raised his head and looked at the lonely dim light of the night, recalling the past events more than ten years ago.
“That night, fourteen years ago, the moon was bright and the stars were sparkling, just like tonight. I had gone to bed early but suddenly I was awakened by your grandfather’s henchmen, saying that there was an emergency and he was looking for me, so I hurried over.”
"When I had arrived in your grandfather's room, I saw him tearfully holding you in swaddling cloths; standing beside your grandfather was a gentle and handsome youth."Support us & read advance unedited chapter in our patreon! And chat with us in ROW's Server or in our server.
