78 Hidden Concern 2

 "That year, your parents had died under strange circumstances, and you were diagnosed as mentally deficient when others brought you back here. They told us that you wouldn't be able to train in battle aura or magic your whole life. When I looked at you back then, I felt sad. I know better than anyone else about the internal strifes within our family. Since you don't have your parents as your support, it was probably a good thing that you weren't able to train in magic or battle aura." Shen Feng sighed.

Shen Yanxiao nodded. She understood the meaning behind Shen Feng's words. There were many internal conflicts within the family, especially between Shen Yue and Shen Duan. Without any parental protection, they could have secretly disposed of her if she had any caliber in her.

Even if Shen Feng had the heart to protect her, he was already old. After he passed away, she would no longer have any support while Shen Yue and the rest of the family members could do whatever they wished with her.

Shen Feng's words resolved any doubts that Shen Yanxiao had in her.

Shen Feng alienated and neglected her because he had wanted to protect her. She was only safe if she was not on anyone's radar. Shen Qiu's secretive care for her must have been due to Shen Feng's influence. Even Shen Siyu's love for her could have been partially due to Shen Feng.

After all, he could not be seen to care for her. He probably arranged for Shen Siyu, who did not possess the Vermilion Bird Family's bloodline, to care for her safety.

Shen Yanxiao's felt tears welled in her eyes. The imposing older man had secretly made plans for her future. Without Shen Feng's deliberate actions, she probably would not have lived till then.

Shen Yanxiao had never experienced the love of a family member, and thus, it was hard for her to express her feelings. She was like a stray animal who had been thrown in a corner to run its own course, but all of a sudden it realizedthat someone had always been raising it in care.

She understood Shen Feng's worries. The clearer she was about his intentions, the fonder she grew of him.

She was an idiot and good-for-nothing trash who did not resemble Shen Yu. It was apparent Shen Feng took great pains to protect her as such.

For the first time in her life, Shen Yanxiao was speechless. She was not a heartless person. It was just that she had never been treated like a human being in her previous life, and she was only a tool to be used by the organization. The co-workers that she had gotten to know within that organization were nothing but her rivals. She had faced endless mutual deception in her previous life, and it was only in that new life that she had felt the warmth from Shen Siyu's care.

"Grandfather." That was the first time that Shen Yanxiao had sincerely called out to Shen Feng.

Even if she was not the real owner of that body, but since she had been given to live, she would then treat it as if she substituted the previous Shen Yanxiao.

There were tears in Shen Feng's eyes as he nodded with gratification. He stroked his granddaughter's head and then kindly said, "It's been hard on you all these years. I am glad that you've recovered and obtained the Vermillion Bird because it meant that I no longer have to worry about anyone bullying you. Rest assured, no one can bully you for as long as I'm alive." Initially, Shen Feng had wanted to let his granddaughter continue with an ordinary and worry-free life. However, it seemed that the heavens had played a joke on them and allowed Shen Yanxiao to recover her intellect. He decided that he would put all of his expectations for Shen Yu on that child.

"Xiaoxiao, now that you've recovered, I have some things that I have to tell you."

"Grandfather, please speak your mind."
