245 Comrade 1

 Even though that flirt had a silly personality, a bad temperament, and a lack of talent in herbalism, she must admit that he was always protective of her. At times, it was without any good reason too.

Shen Yanxiao frowned. If she was honest with herself, she had never regarded Tang Nazhi as someone important. She maintained a good relationship with him to avoid any unnecessary trouble, and also because of his identity.

However, she was lucky that she received sincerity in exchange for her casual attitude.

Her heart was not made of steel, so how could she not be moved?

Qi Xia chuckled when he saw Tang Nazhi's display of protectiveness toward Shen Yanxiao. Then he looked upward at the moon that hung in the dark sky. The usual laziness that he had in his tone disappeared, and it was replaced with a sense of sharpness.

"Did you think I did all that because I was worried about his identity?"

Tang Nazhi did not answer him. Even though they had been friends since they were children, he must admit that there were times he did not know what went on in Qi Xia's head.

"Why do you think Ouyang Huanyu appeared at the Warlock Division tonight? If we didn't get there in time, you probably won't get to see your roommate tomorrow!"

"What do you mean?" Tang Nazhi was startled.

Qi Xia narrowed his eyes and looked at Shen Yanxiao. His eyes did not have the usual smile in them.

"We are all well aware of how the warlocks are treated in the Brilliance Continent. Even though we still have the Warlock Division in the Saint Laurent Academy, have you ever seen a single student there? Why is he trying to identify the warlock at all costs? Why did he guard the entrance to the Warlock's Division? Nazhi, you are too naive! I didn't want Little Jue to confess to satisfy my curiosity. I needed to know what trouble awaits him! I don't want us to be completely in the dark if something were to happen to him, because by then, we would not be able to help even if we wanted to!"

Qi Xia's voice carried a trace of chilliness in it. At that very moment, he was no longer the usual lazy fox. He had transformed into the third young master of the Qilin Family who could strike fear in merchants if he wanted to. Every single word he uttered was with force, and they struck with a sharp blow.

Tang Nazhi was left speechless. He did not imagine that Shen Yanxiao's identities would have such effects.

Shen Yanxiao was even more astonished. She had always thought of Qi Xia as someone she could never understand. Even though he was still young, he was a deep and complex person. She was always careful with her words and actions around him, and she did not expect that he would care so much about her.

He wanted to know her identity because he wanted to plan ahead so that he could help her when she needed it.

Shen Yanxiao was stunned. She looked at Yan Yu and Yang Xi. They always had little to say, but she saw the same concern that Qi Xia had on their faces.

Had they been worrying about her all that time?

However...

Why?

Shen Yanxiao did not understand. They were influential, and they had high statuses. She had nothing that she could offer them in return, so why did they treat a nobody like her so well?

"Why do you care so much about me? Am I even worthy of your attention?" Shen Yanxiao's voice almost broke. She knew that Qi Xia had no reason to deceive her, so everything he said was real.

Qi Xia quirked his eyebrows and said, "Are you an idiot?"

"..."

"..."

"Did you forget that we are a team? Is it not normal to care for our fellow comrade?"
