Chapter 1001: Twilight City (19)


It was not fear, but disdain.


Shen Yanxiao’s attitude was obvious.


It was beneath her to sit at the same table as Elder Wen and Geng Di.


“But is this really a good idea? If Twilight City and Fantasy Devil City were to join hands to deal with Sun Never Sets… wouldn’t City Lord Shen suffer a loss?” Even though Long Xueyao also felt that Shen Yanxiao was a straightforward person, she could not help but worry for her.


Long Fei said, “Even if she did not do as such, do you think Elder Wen would be kind to her? We have heard about the treatment Sun Never Sets received in Twilight City, and we have heard enough tonight. Even if Shen Yanxiao were to swallow her anger and sit in the banquet, she would only receive more humiliation.”


Since it was impossible to shake hands and make peace, there was no need to put on a show. Since they were going to oppose each other, then there was no need to be afraid of falling out.


Long Fei had guessed Shen Yanxiao’s thoughts, but he was also shocked by her courage. After all, Sun Never Sets still had a shallow foundation in the Forsaken Land but even so, Shen Yanxiao was decisive.


She was probably prepared to establish her might in the Forsaken Land.


“It’s all because of that Geng Di. He’s full of nonsense. I don’t believe City Lord Shen is that kind of person.” Long Xueyao bit her lips. Although she had some doubts after Luo Fan’s explanation, she was more willing to believe in Shen Yanxiao’s character.


It had to be said that Shen Yanxiao was a kind person. Even though the father and daughter of the Long Family had been slightly persuaded, they still chose to believe her.


This was what it meant to repay good with evil. It was not that she did not want to repay, but the time to do so had not yet come.


Shen Yanxiao disregarded their past enmity and removed Long Fei’s curse. Moreover, the conditions she proposed were not harsh, and this quickly won Long Fei and Long Xueyao’s favor.


“He’s just a vile character.” Long Fei could not stand Geng Di too.


Long Xueyao nodded. “Are we going to meet with City Lord Shen after the banquet? After all, she is our benefactor.”


“Of course.” Long Fei glanced at Elder Wen’s expression and said, “I don’t think the banquet can continue any longer.”


With Elder Wen’s pride, he probably could not sleep for the whole night after getting slapped in public by Shen Yanxiao.


And the facts were just as Long Fei had guessed.


“To have been spurned by such a rude little kid for no reason. City Lord Geng, City Lord Long, let’s drop the banquet tonight. After the tournament ends, I will invite the two of you for a gathering.” Elder Wen’s face was ashen. After he said that, he turned around and walked towards the City Lord’s Mansion. Looking at his hurried steps, he probably wanted to find a deserted place to vent his anger.


Geng Di and Luo Fan’s objective was to sow discord between the other two City Lords and Shen Yanxiao. Now that their objective had been achieved, they naturally had nothing else to say. After bidding farewell to Long Fei, they directly returned home.


Even though Long Fei and Long Xueyao had left, they were not in a hurry to leave.


Long Fei walked to Duan Hen, who had been neglected by everyone, and politely said. “City Lord Duan, thank you for your hospitality tonight. Since it’s late, I shall take my leave.”


A trace of surprise flashed past Duan Hen’s somewhat inexperienced face as if he did not expect Long Fei to bid farewell to him. He immediately cupped his hands and said, “You’re welcome. City Master Long, please take care.”


“Farewell.” Long Fei smiled and left with Long Xueyao.


Soon after, a guard hastily came before Duan Hen and said, “City lord, Elder Wen wants you there.”


A trace of chilliness flashed past Duan Hen’s eyes before he immediately recovered his calm and walked into the mansion without a word.
