75 Shen Fengs Determination 2

 "Father, Xiaoxiao has just recovered, and you want her to undertake so many responsibilities immediately. I'm afraid that won't be appropriate. Why don't we have other disciples of the family to assist her, so that she can have time for training?" Shen Yue immediately agreed with Shen Duan. Even though he was on bad terms with Shen Duan, both of them had the same thoughts then.

Shen Yanxiao was only an appendant of the Vermilion Bird, and her strength was almost non-existent. Perhaps that was a good thing for them. Even if they could not obtain the Vermillion Bird, their children could still inherit the position as the Family Head. If that was the case, then Shen Yanxiao only had to contain the Vermillion Bird and to command it if they had to deal with the other families' mythical beasts.

They thought of her as more of a vessel for the Vermillion Bird rather than its master.

So what if she had managed to obtain the Vermillion Bird? She was still trash. Her strength was so weak that she was unworthy of the position as the Family Head.

Shen Yanxiao quietly listened to their conversation as she sat at one side and internally sneered at those two elder's 'good intentions.'

How compassionate of them! If she could not even guess their plans, then she would have lived her past life in vain. They merely intended to make her a puppet of the Vermilion Bird Family and to help their children to inherit the position of the Family Head.

They dared to be so presumptuous because Shen Yanxiao's strength was, admittedly, feeble, and she could not oppose the other four Family Heads. Secondly, it was because both her parents had passed away, and she did not have any familial support.

Did they think she was a punching bag and was still so easily bullied? Shen Yanxiao kept Shen Yue and Shen Duan's intentions in her mind. She would make them pay for those intentions one day.

Everyone waited for Shen Feng's decision. Shen Yue and Shen Duan were not nervous because they knew that their father was not close to Shen Yanxiao. Besides, even though their intentions were selfish, they also merely stated the facts.

How could trash inherit the prestigious position as the Family Head?

Shen Feng was silent for a long time, and his gaze landed on Shen Yanxiao's smiling face. Even though the child's appearance did not resemble any of her parents, but as she smiled, he saw the slight resemblance with Shen Yu. Shen Feng's heart and expression sank a little as he thought about his son. He then took a deep breath and said, "Since Xiaoxiao will be inheriting the position as the Family Head in the future, she will have to suffer through these hardships. Otherwise, how can she assume a huge responsibility next time?"

Shen Feng supported Shen Yanxiao to the end.

Shen Yue and Shen Duan were shocked with Shen Feng's persistence, and even Shen Yanxiao was puzzled as well.

There were justifications to what her two bastardly uncles had said. With Shen Feng's usual temperament and personality, he would have most likely gone with their suggestion. However, the sun seemed to have risen from the west that day as Shen Feng supported her.

Was it for the Vermilion Bird? She was only the Vermilion Bird's vessel and there was no need to be so highly regarded.

Shen Yanxiao found it hard to understand Shen Feng's attitude.

"Father! Xiaoxiao cannot train in magic or battle aura. If you were to allow her to ascend the Family Head position, then in the future..." Shen Duan wanted to continue to persuade his father, but Shen Feng had already interrupted him impatiently.

"She's my granddaughter. It doesn't matter if she can't train in magic or battle aura. In this world, are there no other methods to defend herself beside magic and battle aura? Fool!" Shen Feng was enraged. His sons' repeated objections had made him very unhappy.

"I've already decided. The Saint Laurent Academy enrollment will begin next month, and when the time comes, I'll have Xiaoxiao join the Herbalist Division."
