With such a powerful magical beast, why would someone still find a newly born chick? Even if an adult Phoenix could reach the level of a Mythological Beast, the long period of time it needed to grow and become an adult was not short. At this time, the little Phoenix could only be a high level magical beast.
Human beings could only sign one contract with one magical beast for their whole life. So this person in front of them didn’t need to grab their child at all.
Moreover, that mysterious and powerful man that wasn’t anyone’s match seemed to have a great relationship with this human being.
There were two great assistants on her sides, so there was no need for this person to take the little Phoenix away.
Once they figured out this part, the Phoenixes became less hostile towards Shen Yanxiao and Vermillion Bird.
It had to be said that the magical beasts’ train of thought was very simple. Their world only consisted of two things: good or bad.
"To be honest, my goal this time is really not your child. I just want the Inflammation Grass in your nest." Shen Yanxiao didn’t intend to hide anything from this pure Phoenix. Although she wasn’t normally a good person, she wouldn’t be too despicable towards this good-hearted magical beast.
"Inflammation Grass? I have a lot of those in our nest. It’s just that our nest had collapsed. But I estimate that I would be able to find some after cleaning up,” the Phoenix blinked her eyes. The Inflammation Grass —this kind of stuff held no meaning at all for magical beasts. If it wasn’t because Inflammation Grass had some fire element, then they wouldn’t even use such a useless thing to build their nest.
Currently at this time, both sides were forgetting their previous differences.
After the misunderstanding was cleared, the Phoenixes no longer made things difficult for Shen Yanxiao and Vermillion Bird, and they even took the initiative to find some well-preserved Inflammation Grasses around the ruins for Shen Yanxiao.
After getting the Inflammation Grass, Shen Yanxiao was immediately elated.
However, there was one more problem before them right now.
And that was…
"Chirp~?" Squatting on top of Vermillion Bird's head was the little Phoenix who suddenly found that the three other guys' eyes were uniformly looking toward it. Confused, it ignorantly shrunk its neck back, and it also shrunk its soft body under Vermillion Bird’s hair in an attempt to hide itself.
"Cough..." The male Phoenix embarrassedly looked at Shen Yanxiao. He really didn’t know what to do in this kind of situation. He was clear that the little Phoenix favored Vermillion Bird far more than them.
The female Phoenix tearfully looked at their own child. She wanted to reach out and hold the little Phoenix, but the little Phoenix immediately used its feet and wings to cling tightly to Vermillion Bird’s hair. His posture was likely saying he wouldn’t let go of it even if he died.
"..." Vermillion Bird was speechless. The two Phoenixes wanted to take their child back to their home quickly! But it kept on squatting on top of his head. What does it think it was doing?
The male Phoenix helplessly sighed as he put his arms around the female Phoenix. Facing Shen Yanxiao, he said, “It seems that my child is very fond of this younger brother. For this period of time, humans had continued to disturb us. Now that the nest has collapsed, we are only worried about finding another safe place to rebuild our nest. Rather than letting those people continue on trying to get our child’s attention, I have a favor. If you could please grant us.”
"Please say it." The Phoenixes gave her Inflammation Grass, so Shen Yanxiao would naturally return the favor back. Besides, she felt that the two Phoenixes were quite pleasing to the eye.
The male Phoenix had looked intimately at the little Phoenix on top of Vermillion Bird’s head before he slowly said, “Before we can find a new place and build a new nest, can you help us take care of our child? Once we find a safe place, we will take him back.”SNEAK PEEK FOR THE NEXT CHAPTER
"... ..." Shen Yanxiao did not respond for a time.
What was that again?
They would give her the little Phoenix to take care of it for a while?
Shen Yanxiao did not know that the reason why the Phoenixes made such a decision was because they were also helpless.
The adult Phoenix was powerful, but the little Phoenix had just been born not too long ago and had no power yet. It would require 100% careful protection of its parents during this time.
Generally, before the child was about to be born, the Phoenix would find a very safe place to wait for the birth of the little Phoenix. They had originally set up Mount Ku Luo to be the place where they would breed the little Phoenix, but they did not think that they would unexpectedly suffer from humans’ disturbances one after another. If not because the Phoenix egg hadn’t been born yet, they would have long left this place.
Shen Yanxiao: Do I look like a home or an orphanage? Or is it that there’s a sign around me that says I give free shelters?
Shen Yanxiao: Having Xiu inside me is one thing, the Vermillion Bird is another thing, and now a new one? Please tell me this will be the last one.
Sky: Welp, if you want I can say it but it wouldn’t mean it is true...
Shen Yanxiao: (ಥ_ಥ)
Sky: Look at the bright side, at least you have another companion to help you-
Raz: And annoy you.
Sky: Raz, you’re making it worse. *whip*
Raz: Well it’s true. I mean, it’s true for me.
