Chapter 19: Reaping What One Has Sown (1)
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
From her experience at the meeting, Shen Yanxiao to fully understood her insignificance in the family. When she stood in front of Shen Yue and Shen Duan, she was powerless to resist, and she also lacked the strength to struggle in front of the rest of the Vermilion Bird Family.
She could only keep a tight hold on her trump card and try her best to expedite the process to undo her seal so that she could get stronger and return the favor for all the fright that she had suffered that day.
Shen Yanxiao did not lose anything when she was just a bystander at the meeting, and instead, she got a strong brother with a protective attitude.
Shen Yanxiao was an orphan in her past life, and she always had to move around in the city since she was young. She also had to rely on her thieving abilities to acquire food and clothing. When she turned fifteen, she was picked up and trained by an organization. However, no one cared if she lived or died. When she started at the organization, there were about a hundred orphans who began with her. Yet, only three of them survived after only three years of training.
She had never experienced any care and concern, so it was the first time that she had met someone who would protect her at all times. Therefore, it was quite a shocking situation for her.
Shen Siyu looked like he could hold all the enemies at bay, and not just the unruly twins or Shen Yue and Shen Duan. With only one glance from Shen Siyu, the twins, who would gleefully bully Shen Yanxiao whenever they could, would obediently scramble to the sideline.
Shen Jiayi thought that she could nurture her admiration for Shen Siyu when he returned. However, he held on to Shen Yanxiao’s hand and walked away without even a sideways glance for her. Her ‘Hello, brother Siyu’ was also brought away with the wind.
In Shen Siyu’s eyes, other than the Vermilion Bird Family Head, Shen Feng, the only person who could hold his attention was Shen Yanxiao.
As for those useless outsiders, he would not even spare a sideways glance for them.
With Shen Siyu’s return, large quantities of gourmet food and little toys were delivered to Shen Yanxiao’s small room. Shen Siyu had been very busy and it was to the extent that he would be called away by a subordinate of Shen Feng’s before he had time to accompany Shen Yanxiao. As she sat cross-legged on the bed and looked at the plates of desserts and piles of toys on the table, her lips twitched.
She understood the intent behind the desserts, but why would he send toys that were meant for little kids?
She then realized that Shen Siyu had always treated Shen Yanxiao like a little doll and pampered her. However, her body’s new soul was someone who was already an adult, and when she saw those childish toys, she did not know whether to laugh or to cry. All she could do was to question the heavens wordlessly.
She did not ask for him to gift her with a mountain of gold and silver, but she would have liked some small pieces of jewelry. At the very least, he could gift her something that she could sell for cash!
When Shen Yanxiao wiped her tears discreetly, Shen Jiayi, who was ignored by Shen Siyu, dashed angrily into her room.
When she entered the room, Shen Jiayi saw the pile of presents that were stacked on the table, and her angry eyes turned red from jealousy.
“Idiot, who do you think you are, to have brother Siyu treat you so well? You’re simply a good-for-nothing trash! A fool! Even the lowest ranked servant in the estate is better than you by a hundred-fold! You do not deserve brother Siyu’s gifts!” Shen Jiayi clenched her fist tightly and stared intently at Shen Yanxiao who sat on the bed. The red that she saw burned so bright that she could not see any logic or reason at all.
As she looked at Shen Yanxiao’s unappealing appearance, Shen Jiayi’s hatred for her grew.
She was prettier than the idiotic trash, and she was smarter than her too. So why would Shen Siyu always maintain his sight on that piece of trash? She felt unwilling, she was unwilling to accept the fact that she would lose to such a useless good-for-nothing idiot!
