Chapter 774: Story of the Past (5)
Deep in the peaceful night, Shen Yanxiao slowly stepped out from the dungeon.
The cold yet bright moonlight spilled onto her whole body.
She squinted her eyes at the chilly moonlight.
She had avenged her parents but there was no sense of happiness in her heart.
Why did she get taken away Where did she go in that five months Why was she sent back after five months
Most importantly, who put that Seven Star Moon Seal in her
Shen Yanxiaos mind was in a mess.
Perplexed, she stood under the night sky and listened to the wind whistling in the silent yard around her.
“Xiu, Shen Duan said that I was sent back after five months.
But who sent me back When I was returned, the Seven Star Moon Seal was already in me.
Moreover, at that point, I looked nothing like before.
At that time, who could have recognized me I find this very strange.
Why was grandpa sure that I was the child of my parents” Shen Yanxiao found out that she was missing a piece of the puzzle.
In fact, the Seven Star Moon Seal restricted her gift and intelligence and changed her looks as well.
Shen Feng might have seen her when she was born but there was no way that he could identify her as his granddaughter when her appearance was utterly different when she was returned.
After all, before her seal began to undo, her looks were far from beautiful, very different from Shen Yu or Wen Ya.
When she returned, she looked nothing like when she was born.
Realistically, no one should be able to tell that she was Shen Yanxiao.
Shen Feng never for a second doubted her identity.
Before she got her looks back, Shen Feng had asserted emphatically that she was a child of the Vermilion Bird Family.
He was so sure about it.
But where did his confidence come from
“Grandpa must know something.” Shen Yanxiao bit her lips.
Shen Feng must have a reason to be so confident.
It was likely that Shen Feng had met the person who sent her back!
“Are you planning on asking him about this” Xiu asked.
Shen Yanxiao did not know the answer to Xius question.
What Shen Feng experienced was traumatic for him.
Plus, she had already asked Shen Ling to take Shen Feng back to rest.
But given Shen Fengs wisdom, he must know that she had executed Shen Duan, Shen Yue, and Shen Yifeng.
She now had their blood on her hand.
If she were to find Shen Feng now, Shen Feng would probably feel…
Now is not a good time.” Shen Yanxiao was eager to find out the answer but she cared about Shen Fengs feelings more.
“Miss.” Shen Yanxiao heard a wizened voice from behind her.
Shen Yanxiao turned around to see Shen Qiu standing behind looking at her gently.
When Shen Duan and Shen Yue were staging their rebellion, they banished Shen Qiu from the Vermilion Bird Family.
But he never strayed far away from the Vermilion Bird Family.
Instead, he would stand guard outside of the estate every day and observe.
He probably had just heard about the changes happening in the Vermilion Bird Family when he was outside.
It also looked like he just came back inside not long ago and went to check on Shen Feng.
Shen Yanxiao was grateful to Shen Qiu.
This kind old man had been treating her nicely when she was still considered a fool.
He also did not leave the Vermilion Bird Family when it was deep in crisis.
Even though Shen Duan drove him away, he still stayed outside the gate every day, hoping that one day, the Vermilion Bird Family would rise again.
“Uncle Qiu, how is my grandpa doing” Shen Yanxiao secretly put her hands behind her back to wipe off the blood on her clothes.
“He is doing better but the sore point in his heart is difficult to remove.
It will take some time.” Shen Qiu looked at Shen Yanxiao with a smile.
The girl that grew up under his watch had become someone he hardly could recognize.
“But she sure does look like Shen Yu,” Shen Qiu exclaimed to himself.
