Chapter 396: This is An Egg (2)
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
The Vermilion Bird snorted.
He was vexed as he felt as though he was caressed like a pet.
“Why are you still standing here Go on in then.” The Vermilion Bird walked toward the Phoenixs nest with arrogance.
He decided to vent his frustrations with his master in their lair.
Those two idiotic birds had better residence than he did, and so he decided to destroy that place before he left!
Shen Yanxiao chuckled and followed the Vermilion Bird into the Phoenixs nest.
The Phoenixs nest looked larger from outside than it was inside.
The cave was pitch-black too.
As she walked into the cave, she discovered shining red crystals embedded on all of the walls.
They were the size of a fist, and there were at least a thousand of them in the large cave.
Those red crystals constantly radiated fire elements from all four directions.
It was probably why the entire cave was flooded with an abundance of fire elements.
When he felt the fire elements that surrounded him, the Vermillion Bird stretched comfortably, and his annoyance had lessened considerably.
Even his footsteps felt lighter.
There seemed to be no end to that large cavern.
Shen Yanxiao and the Vermillion Bird had walked for about three to four minutes, but they had yet to reach its end.
As they explored deeper into the cave, Shen Yanxiao felt the increase in temperature until it was more than what a human body could endure.
She had no choice but to use her magic and battle aura to keep the heat separated.
They continued to travel deeper into the cave when, suddenly, a light illuminated the dark cave.
The cave had a wide and flat ceiling, and its four walls and the ground were littered with fire elemental crystals.
The faint red light the crystals radiated had lit up the place.
Two massive nests were arranged side by side, and they looked like they belonged to those two Phoenixes.
However, they did not expect to see a tiny nest in the middle of those two large ones.
The tiny nest was only as big as three human palms.
Then Shen Yanxiao realized that the nest was built with the Flame Grass that she had sought for so painstakingly!
Even though it was only the size of a palm, it looked like thousands of Flame Grass had been used to create it!
She recalled how much effort she had to put in just to get a single stalk.
She felt as if she would vomit blood when she realized that the Phoenixes had used it for the tiny nest.
The small and delicate nest seemed rather inconspicuous in the massive cave, but Shen Yanxiao could not shift her gaze away from it.
Her sight was glued onto the palm-size red egg that rested there.
It was an egg!
Shen Yanxiao looked at that bright red egg in shock.
She could almost feel the steady stream of heat that the egg had radiated.
“Whats this egg” Shen Yanxiao lips twitched as she looked at the adorable red egg.
Yet, she had an outrageous thought in her mind.
“This is a Phoenix egg.
No wonder those two Phoenixes had been so agitated.
I believe that someone else had wanted to snatch their child previously and so, it had provoked their desire to protect.
That was why their reaction had been so extreme when they saw the group of humans.” Xiu finally understood the reason for their strange behavior.
It was not only humans who could feel familial love.
Even the magical beasts would care for their offsprings, let alone mythical beasts that had the same intellect as a human being.
Some of them could also morph into a human form.
They would certainly do everything they could to foster their offspring, and it made sense that they would defend the child if someone attempted to steal them away.
