178 So Embarrassing 1

 Shen Yanxiao was stunned as she stood at the entrance and saw the half-naked, handsome man in the tent.

Qi Xia was in the midst of changing into his clothes. His worn-out long violet robe was thrown onto the floor, and he held a new robe in his hands. Who would have expected that Shen Yanxiao would barge into his room so suddenly?

His naked torso was exposed, and his slender physique was not as thin or as weak as one would have expected. He had tight muscles and a flat abdomen, and everything looked firm and pleasant to the eyes.

That was not her first time to see a man's half-naked body. In the modern society where she was from, many hot-blooded youths would play sports, like basketball, half-naked. However, that was the first time she saw the 'skin' of someone from the opposite gender since her reincarnation.

For a moment, Shen Yanxiao could not speak.

Qi Xia was also momentarily stunned, but he recovered his usual smile soon enough. He gracefully and calmly changed his clothes, and then walked to Shen Yanxiao as if nothing happened and patted her head.

"Why, are you envious?" Qi Xia quirked his lips and smiled.

Envious? What was there to be envious about?" Shen Yanxiao blinked, as she was still unable to respond momentarily.

"Do not worry. As long as you do some work out in the future, you will also have them," Qi Xia said with a smile.

'You will also have them...'

It was as if a light bulb went off in Shen Yanxiao's head. It seemed like someone had mistaken her distracted expression as the envy of their perfect physique.

"There is no need for that." Shen Yanxiao's lips twitched. She was a female, so why would she need muscles? To become a king kong barbie?!

Qi Xia quirked his eyebrows.

"Where are your roommates?" Shen Yanxiao looked around the tent, but she did not see anyone else.

"Still arguing outside," Qi Xia shrugged his shoulders and said.

"..." Interesting!

Since there was no one else with them, Shen Yanxiao headed straight for Qi Xia's bed and sat down on it. No one knew she was a female anyway, so there was nothing wrong with her seating on another man's bed.

"Why did you say that today?" Shen Yanxiao asked Qi Xia directly.

Qi Xia was a smart person, so he knew what Shen Yanxiao had in mind.

"Why? Are you upset that Nazhi stole your limelight?" Qi Xia asked with a smile.

Shen Yanxiao rolled her eyes.

"Is there ever a need to steal the show from an idiot?"

"..." Qi Xia stared at her blankly. Immediately after, he understood the 'idiot' that she had inferred.

"A good, young master from the Black Tortoise Family who could have had a bright future in other divisions, but he chose to force himself into the Herbalist Division instead. If he is not an idiot, then what is he?" Shen Yanxiao roasted Tang Nazhi without any reservations.

"Alright." Qi Xia smiled helplessly and then said, "I do not wish for others to know about our ins and outs."

"What do you mean by that?"

"Have you forgotten that we are a small organization? Everyone in the Saint Laurent Academy knew about our strength - me, Yang Xi, and Yan Yu. Tang Nazhi would certainly become famous after his enrollment. Among all of us in 'Phantom,' you are most likely to be overlooked. It would be good to have you as our trump card. No matter what situation we may encounter in the future, our opponents could never gauge our real strength." It was never a bad thing to have a low sense of presence. In many cases, it was a better move to conceal one's moves and to bide one's time. Unfortunately, the four of them had lost such an opportunity.

As young masters of the five great aristocratic families, they had to display their perfect selves to uphold the honor of their families.

"I seem to remember you saying that 'Phantom' is only an organization for you to kill time." Shen Yanxiao was speechless. Why did she feel that it was like an illegal organization the more she heard about it? 'Do not tell me that they intend to cause uproars to the academy?'
