82 I Dont Want to be Devastatingly Gorgeous 3

 She had also discovered some items that she desperately needed in the treasury!

A total of seven hundred plus high-grade demonic cores!

That amount was probably half of all of the high-grade demonic cores in Longxuan Empire.

Naturally, Shen Yanxiao could not let her excellent fortune slip by her. She immediately removed a portion of the gold coins and squeezed those few hundreds of high-grade demonic cores into the interspatial ring.

When the ring was finally filled to the brim, Shen Yanxiao wiped her sleeves and then snuck out of the treasury.

One could only imagine the Emperor's reaction to the empty room when it was time for him to check on the status of the state treasury.

After she had returned from that little excursion, Shen Yanxiao consumed a bottle of low-grade disguise potion the next morning and visited the Qilin Auction House. When he saw the familiar customer, Qi Meng welcomed the little lad, and he was prepared to accept any goldware and jewels that he might have brought with him. If anyone else asked, he would have told them that their auction house had started a part-time business that dealt with luxury goods.

However, Shen Yanxiao did not have any items for them to sell on her behalf. She had brought a large sum of money and tasked them to continue to purchase more low-grade demonic cores for her. She even prepared a considerable amount of money to commission Qi Meng to proceed with the purchases for an infinite duration.

Qi Meng still could not figure out why that little lad would need so many demonic cores.

Despite his doubts, it was pretty easy to accomplish tasks with money. In only less than two days, Qi Meng had already purchased the last batch of the low-grade demonic cores that Shen Yanxiao needed.

When she was back in her room, Shen Yanxiao absorbed the few thousands of low-grade demonic cores on Xiu's behalf. Just as she consumed the last demonic core, a blurred silhouette suddenly appeared in her mind.

Then, she heard Xiu's voice from that blurry figure.

"It's time to undo the second layer of seal for you."

Shen Yanxiao was shocked. Did the demonic cores help Xiu to recover his strength and his physical body?

"This is only a mental illusion. It's not that simple to rebuild my body." Xiu answered the question in Shen Yanxiao's mind.

The Vermillion Bird had enjoyed the filial respect that everyone in the Vermillion Bird Family had shown him. He sat cross-legged on the chair lazily as he looked at the gradual change on the Seven Star Moon Seal on Shen Yanxiao's arm.

It took them an entire night to undo the second seal. When Shen Yanxiao woke up the next day, she felt as if she had been fished out from the river as she was drenched from head to toe. She realized that the water was quite dirty and quickly asked for a servant to prepare a bath for her.

However, the servant maid seemed to be in shock when she saw Shen Yanxiao. The servant maid even went inside her room, as if to take a closer look at Shen Yanxiao. Her behavior rendered Shen Yanxiao speechless, The servant maid finally recovered from the trance and left the room after Shen Yanxiao passed down an order.

"What's wrong with her? Is it that troublesome to fetch water?" Shen Yanxiao was baffled with the servant maid's attitude.

The Vermillion Bird also woke up around that time. As he sat up and rubbed his eyes, he was immediately shocked as he saw Shen Yanxiao, who stood in front of him.

Tender fair skin that was similar to the silk of the highest quality. A sharp protruding nose and naturally rosy lips, with a pair of bright eyes that became even more lively with every blink as if it could speak.

If he had not established a mental connection with Shen Yanxiao, he would not have believed that the gorgeous woman in front of him was the ugly duckling!
