Chapter 1331: Moonshine Tribe (5)
Shen Yanxiao raised her brow and said, “Take a guess.”
Shen Jing was speechless…
“Is it because of your mother”
Shen Yanxiao nodded.
Shen Jing paused for a moment.
“How are Father and the rest”
Shen Yanxiao sat down on the chair and looked at this uncle that she was not familiar with.
“Shen Duan and Shen Yue have conspired against the Vermilion Bird Family with a second class expert.”
“What!” Shen Jing suddenly looked up, his eyes filled with shock.
“He… really did that Why… Why would he be so heartless”
Shen Yanxiao noticed something strange with Shen Jings words.
It was as if Shen Jing already knew Shen Duans conniving thoughts.
Could it be, Shen Jing was also involved in Shen Duans matter
Shen Yanxiaos expression could not help but turn cold.
“Third Uncle, you were aware about this”
The sloppy expression on Shen Jings face had completely disappeared.
He slumped on the chair and lowered his head while speaking in a muffled voice.
“Perhaps it can be considered as being aware, or perhaps it can be considered as being unaware.
I knew of Shen Duans thoughts a long time ago, but at that time, no one in the Vermilion Bird Family could compete with him for the Family Head position.
I thought… I thought he would be more well-behaved, but I did not expect…”
Shen Jings voice turned sluggish.
He looked up at Shen Yanxiao.
Perhaps Shen Duan had always been the most likely candidate to become the Family Head, but after Shen Yanxiao signed the contract with Vermilion Bird, everything changed.
“Third Uncle, do you know something” Shen Yanxiao vaguely sensed that the current Shen Jing gave her a completely different feeling from before.
Shen Jing forced a smile.
“So what if I know Xiaoxiao, your third uncle is a coward and a piece of trash.
I will only run away.”
Shen Yanxiao frowned.
Shen Jing said, “Ive let you down, Brother.
Ive let our parents down.
Im a sinner of the Vermilion Bird Family.
Perhaps I have already sensed that the Vermilion Bird Family would greatly change after you signed the contract with Vermilion Bird.
Therefore, I found an excuse to escape, but I didnt dare to say anything… I harmed my father and Shen Ling…”
“Xiaoxiao, did you know I personally witnessed your uncle being killed by Shen Duan…” Shen Jing looked at Shen Yanxiao as his eyes overflowed with despair and self-blame.
“What!” Shen Yanxiao was stunned.
She knew that her uncles family was killed by Shen Duan, but even Shen Yue only found out about it later on.
How could Shen Jing… If Shen Jing had collaborated with Shen Duan, then he would not have had to escape from the Vermilion Bird Family.
However, Shen Jings current appearance was clearly filled with guilt and despair.
Shen Jing said, “Xiaoxiao, you may think that I am a good-for-nothing.
Indeed, I am a good-for-nothing and a coward! Back then, I wanted to look for your uncle to discuss some matters, but when I found him, I discovered that Shen Duan had secretly attacked your uncle.
I was so frightened that I did not dare to utter a sound and could only hide in a corner.
I did not dare to tell your grandfather because I knew that in the eyes of everyone in the Vermilion Bird Family, that I, Shen Jing, was trash.
No one would believe my words, but Shen Duan has always been the son your grandfather values.”
“About your parents… Ive already guessed it.
Shen Duan has always wanted to seize the Family Head position and your father, Shen Yu, is the son your grandfather values the most.
Therefore, Shen Duan would never let him off.
I once wanted to remind your father, but… it was to no avail.
Xiaoxiao, Ive let you down.
I was too weak and made your parents…”
