183 Shielding Ones Shortcoming 2

 They reckoned that it was the same as the rumors. That little guy must have fawned over Tang Nazhi and the rest of their team members to climb up to that position.

All of the first-student felt disgusted, and they subconsciously took a step back.

They believed themselves to be aloof from politics and material pursuits and would hate it if they were to be someone else's lackey.

What kind of meticulous thoughts did Shen Yanxiao harbor in her mind? Before Tang Nazhi even spoke up, she already knew she would get unjustly ridiculed. However, as she looked at those disdainful gazes that surrounded her, her expression turned cold.

She was extremely familiar with those expressions. Back when she wandered the streets, the passersby would look at her with the same disdainful expression, as if her very existence polluted the air. However, after she became the number one thief goddess, she took pleasure in seeing those smug and self-righteous idiots revealed expressions of fright as they begged for forgiveness.

Inevitably, a day would come when she would let those people behave like those from her past life. None of them would dare to look at her like that then.

Shen Yanxiao's silence caused unnerved those first-year students even more. They started to whisper about her, from her plain appearance to her thin and weak physique. Even the accessories on her were reasons to despise her.

Those whispers gradually got louder and spread into Tang Nazhi's ears.

Tang Nazhi frowned and pulled Shen Yanxiao to his side. His sharp gaze glared at those first-year students, and he said in annoyance, "If you continue to harass Little Jue, I will pull out your tongues!"

The crowd of first-year students did not expect Tang Nazhi, the Black Tortoise Family's young master, would stand up and protect a nameless soldier. They had assumed that Shen Yanxiao was his lackey instead.

Even though Tang Nazhi was usually frivolous and indecent, it was different when his facial muscles tensed. It was like an incorporeal aura had shrouded around the first-year students. They immediately ceased to talk. No one dared to utter another word. Tang Nazhi's sharp eyes were like the eagles, and it was as if he could tear them into pieces.

No one dared to provoke the five great families' prestige then. All of them were anxious, not dissimilar to birds startled by a mere twang of the bow. Then they hastily dispersed from the announcement board.

"There's no need to bother about them." Shen Yanxiao looked at Tang Nazhi's side profile, and she did not know whether she should laugh or cry. Even though that idiot appeared like a fool on usual occasions, she did not expect he would possess such an aura when he got serious.

After everyone left, Tang Nazhi immediately recovered his usual sloppy appearance. He snorted at those first-year students and said. "You sure have a good temper, to allow them to slander you like that." Tang Nazhi thought of Shen Jue as someone easy to befriend, and he had not seen him displeased yet.

To sum it up, he had a nice guy personality. If it were someone else, he would not have bothered about it. Shen Jue was someone he protected, so how could he allow anyone else to bully him?

"What would you have me do? Jump out and fight them?" Shen Yanxiao said with a chuckle.

Tang Nazhi snorted. Then, he looked at Shen Jue with a complicated expression. He hesitated for a moment before he said, "This is all my fault. I have snatched your credit. You have produced the antidote, but I got the credit instead. If it were not for you, we would not have gotten such great results. We could have been eliminated from the test on the first night too."

Tang Nazhi had felt apologetic for the credit that he took from Shen Jue. He understood what Qi Xia had in mind, and he followed his lead.
