66 Recovered All Of a Sudden 3

 "You!" The Vermilion Bird choked. As a first-rate mythical beast, he had confidence. Each of his masters had died of old age, and none of them was killed by someone else. The dignity of a mythical beast was tied to the safety of their master. If they could not even keep a human safe, then they would lose their reputation if the news were to spread to the other mythical beasts.

Shen Yanxiao had accumulated an abundance of experience from her past life. She knew how to deal with a 'creature' who did not know how to mask itself well, just like the Vermilion Bird.

Surprisingly, Xiu did not say anything.

The moment Shen Yanxiao spoke, Xiu had already guessed her intentions. After the time that they had spent together, Xiu knew that his ally was a crafty fox. She was cunning and shrewd, and she cherished her life more than anything else. If someone dared to offend her, then she would repay it a hundredfold.

For her to commit suicide?

She was more likely to murder someone else.

It was apparent that she had lied to threaten the proud and arrogant Vermilion Bird. Unfortunately, the little bird had yet to understand his new master. Therefore...

It was a tragedy caused by ignorance.

Shen Yanxiao's 'threat' had managed to temporarily suppress those two and after her mind became more peaceful, she looked toward the others within the cave.

While she resolved the internal problems within her mind, she presented a quiet appearance. After Shen Yifeng and the others had digested the shock they felt after the contract was completed, they looked at her with an odd expression.

They did not know if they had to treat Shen Yanxiao as their future Family Head or as the idiot that she was before.

No one dared to do anything rash in front of the Vermilion Bird. However, they were still under the impression that Shen Yanxiao was an idiot and so, how could someone like her lead the family?

Everyone had complicated emotions about everything that had happened, but none of them dared to take reckless actions before the Vermilion Bird.

"Congratulations." The sage handed Shen Jiayi to the attendant from the Vermilion Bird family and walked toward Shen Yanxiao. When the Vermilion Bird chose Shen Yanxiao, the sage was the calmest audience in the cave. The elegant smile on his face did not falter, and his friendly attitude made it hard to reject.

"Thank you, sage." Shen Yanxiao's smile blossomed like a flower as she respectfully expressed her thanks to the sage.

No matter what had happened, the sage had made a huge contribution in her quest to obtain the Vermilion Bird.

However, that simple 'thank you' had caused everyone from the Vermilion Bird Family to gasp!

They uniformly looked toward Shen Yanxiao's clear and bright eyes, and they rubbed their eyes in disbelief.

A polite smile was plastered on the little girl's face, and her bright eyes were no longer looked confused as they did before. Her clear pronunciation as she gave her thanks was from a voice that had yet to grow into adulthood.

The little girl that stood before them was the same as an average child, and there were no traces of her previous idiotic self.

Everyone started to wonder if it was a hallucination. Shen Yanxiao had been an idiot in the Vermilion Bird Family for thirteen years, so how did she turn into a normal person in the blink of an eye?

Even the sage did not manage to conceal the surprise on his face. He looked at the little girl, who seemed to be completely different from before, in astonishment. If Shen Yanxiao had not remained in his line of sight since the beginning of the quest, he would have thought that the little girl had somehow been substituted.

Otherwise, how could an idiot who had been ridiculed by everyone suddenly turn into a bright and normal person?
