72 I Hate Getting Carsick The Most 2

 He had never seen such a lively expression on Shen Yanxiao's face before.

She did not seem like the idiot everyone thought she was before! It was as if she was a normal little girl, the same as every other young lady.

A speculation flashed past Shen Feng's mind, but he was not sure about it.

Shen Yue and Shen Duan felt as if a hurricane had wrecked their minds. When they saw Shen Yanxiao, they were surprised that she did not look like the smiley idiot who never had no other expressions with the exception of a foolish smile. The little girl stood quietly beside the carriage. The smile in her eyes had traces of liveliness in it, and her huge black eyes swept past each one of them in confusion.

They were also stunned to see the flame mark between Shen Yanxiao's eyebrows.

There was a written account in the Vermilion Bird Family's ancient records. After a person signed a contract with the Vermillion Bird, a flame-like mark would appear on their forehead, in between their eyebrows, and that was the proof that the person was the Vermillion Bird's new master.

Shen Yue and Shen Duan had been too confident about the success of their children that they forgot to check if they had the mark on their foreheads. They became a joke because they had celebrated too soon. Furthermore, the records were from more than a hundred years ago, and no one was sure about its authenticity. After all, none of them had seen the mark of the flame before.

However, the moment Shen Yanxiao appeared from the carriage, they realized the ridiculousness of their thoughts. It was as if the flame-like mark had magic that attracted their attention with only one glance.

The Vermilion Bird had indeed chosen Shen Yanxiao as his master!

The same answer surfaced in their hearts. Even if they did not want to believe it, they knew that the mark between Shen Yanxiao's eyebrows was real.

Shen Yue and Shen Duan's expressions were as black as charcoal. Their exceptional children had lost to such an idiot, and even if they were beaten to their death, they would have never expected that. Otherwise, they would not have allowed Shen Feng to include Shen Yanxiao in that quest.

By then, everything was already too late. The Vermilion Bird had chosen his master, and nothing could change the situation.

Shen Yanxiao smiled and walked up to the shell-shocked Shen Feng casually as she dutifully said, "Grandfather, I've lived up to your expectations and brought back the Vermillion Bird."

"..." Everyone in the Vermilion Bird Family was struck dumb.

Was it an auditory hallucination? The idiot who usually did not understand conversations had managed to speak so rationally and orderly!

The moment Shen Yanxiao revealed herself, Shen Feng noticed the changes in her. However, when Shen Yanxiao dutifully called him 'grandfather,' Shen Feng could only stare ahead blankly.

Since she was young, Shen Yanxiao had not managed to see much of Shen Feng. Even if she were to occasionally bump into him , she would hide in a corner and stay silent. It could even be said that Shen Yanxiao had not uttered a single word to her grandfather since she was born.

When she spoke that day, her simple words set off massive waves in everyone's heart.

Where was the idiot? What was with that eloquent little girl? Where did the idiotic seventh young miss of their family go?

Even though Shen Feng did not know why Shen Yanxiao had suddenly recovered, she was still his granddaughter. Furthermore, Shen Yanxiao had even brought the Vermilion Bird back to the family, so how could he not be happy?

"Great. It's great that you're back." Shen Feng looked at Shen Yanxiao excitedly, and he could not help but ask the question in his mind.

"Xiaoxiao, how did you suddenly..."

Shen Yanxiao blinked her eyes adorably. She touched the tip of her nose and then said, "Grandfather, are you trying to ask me how I recovered all of a sudden? I honestly don't know the reason myself. After I signed the contract with the Vermilion Bird, my mind seemed to have cleared up."
