235 Glory of a Warlock 3

 Even though the Vermilion Bird Family had power, no one could hide from the Emperor if he wanted to investigate them.

Yun Qi was worried that Shen Yanxiao would shy away from the competition as she could not afford to expose her identity as a warlock. If that were to happen, then he would not be able to fulfill Ouyang Huanyu's request, and the warlocks would never see the light of the day again.

However, Yun Qi's worries were for nothing. Even if he did not ask her, Shen Yanxiao had already promised Xiu to participate in the competition.

She wanted to undo her seal as quickly as she could, so she would force herself to do everything that she could to help things along.

"There is no need to worry about that. If I get into the finals, then I will appear as myself." Shen Yanxiao did not even worry about that.

"But, if your grandfather were to know about this, won't he disown you?" Yun Qi felt awkward about his request. He wanted the warlocks to regain their former glory, and it was not enough to merely win the competition. Shen Yanxiao would have to establish herself firmly in the Forsaken Land, and it would be a long journey for her. However, the Vermillion Bird Family could chase her out of her home because of her identity as a warlock.

"My grandfather will never chase me out of the Vermilion Bird Family," Shen Yanxiao smiled and said.

Chase her out of the Vermilion Bird Family? One should mention how protective Shen Feng was of her. Since the Vermillion Bird was in her body, no one would even dare to touch her.

Would they chase the mythical beast out of the family? Unless someone in the Vermilion Bird Family were out of their mind, otherwise, they would support her even if she wanted to revolt against the empire.

Furthermore, Shen Feng had hinted that she would be the next heir to the entire family.

Who would evict her from the family?

Herself?

Shen Yanxiao did not give Yun Qi much more explanation than that. Even though she revealed her identity to him, she had no plans to share anything further. After all, some information was related to the roots of the Vermillion Bird Family. It was not appropriate for her to unveil more even if Yun Qi meant her no harm.

"Are you sure? I really hope that you can take part in this competition, but you don't have to force yourself." Yun Qi understood how things worked, and compared to himself, Shen Yanxiao's safety was much more important.

The people were not all wrong about the warlocks. No matter good or bad, they were all very protective of their own.

"Teacher, do not worry. I know my limits."

Yun Qi was extremely pleased when Shen Yanxiao addressed him as a teacher. He knew that he was different than her other teachers from the academy; he was responsible for her life. Naturally, their status would be much different.

"In that case, do as you deem fit. Oh right, you mentioned that you had learned Enervation. Why don't you demonstrate that to me, and I'll see if there are any mistakes." When he was sure that he did not place Shen Yanxiao in a difficult position, Yun Qi immediately shifted his focus onto Shen Yanxiao's talents.

He was curious to know about her progress after she had studied the curses for one and a half months.

What would Yun Qi think if he were to find out that instead of one and a half months, Shen Yanxiao only took about two weeks to master the Enervation curse?

"Use it on you, teacher? I do not think that's a good idea." Shen Yanxiao hesitated. She had tried it on other students, and even though it did not have the most significant effect, it was still quite harmful to the recipient. Yun Qi was no longer a young man, and if anything were to happen to him, Shen Yanxiao did not think that she could bear with the consequences.

Yu Qi understood Shen Yanxiao's worries, and he was thankful for her concerns. So, he smiled and said, "You have nothing to worry about, just do it. I may not be young, but my body can still withstand this. As long as you are not a Great Warlock, your curses cannot harm me."
