Chapter 777: Story of the Past (8)
Shen Siyu never made unnecessary contact with others in the Vermilion Bird Family, except with her.
He treated the little girl that was still a bit slow in the head with extra kindness.
Every time he came back, he would give her food and fun toys.
When he was around, Shen Jiayi and Shen Jiawei never dared to hurt her.
Without any ties of blood, why would he treat her so nicely and pamper her
Once the can of worms was open, there was no stopping it.
Because of Shen Yanxiaos piercing questions, Shen Qiu became unsettled.
He regretted coming here tonight to chat with Shen Yanxiao.
“Xiaoxiao, put away all those questions of yours.
Your Brother Siyu has always been good to you, right That is all you need to know.
Dont ask too many unnecessary questions.” Shen Qiu was at a loss.
He tried to avoid Shen Yanxiaos questions.
He was afraid that once Shen Yanxiao dug deeper about her birth, they could no longer hide the truth from her.
Shen Yanxiao looked into Shen Qius eyes and said in a low voice, “It was Shen Siyu who sent me back here.”
Shen Qiu gasped.
He looked at Shen Yanxiao, shocked and panicked.
“Brother Siyu is not my grandpas adopted grandson and he is away from the Vermilion Bird Family not to run some errands for grandpa.
Am I right” Shen Yanxiao squinted her eyes.
She remembered Shen Siyus every twinkle and smile.
That refined and gentle young mans looks suddenly became all but a blur to her.
Shen Qiu bit his teeth.
He did not know how to answer these questions.
“Did he come to the Vermilion Bird Family only because of me” Shen Yanxiao began to speculate.
When the Vermilion Bird Family was in crisis, Shen Siyu did not come.
Even outsiders had heard about what was happening to the Vermilion Bird Family, so why didnt Shen Siyu come if he really was a member of the family
Shen Yanxiao had a feeling that Shen Siyu had stayed in the Vermilion Bird Family for her sake and would only come to resolve matters when she was involved.
“Alas, Xiaoxiao, there are some things you are better off not knowing.” Shen Qiu could no longer avoid Shen Yanxiaos questions.
He let out a deep sigh.
“Uncle Qiu, just tell me.
I dont want to stay as a fool who knows nothing.
I must know who saved my life and find out who my true family is.” In this world, there were merely two people she valued, Shen Feng and Shen Siyu.
Being ignorant of her familys identity was not her wish.
Shen Qiu was still hesitating.
He struggled with himself for a moment.
Eventually, he made up his mind.
You have figured out most of the story so there is no need for me to hide it from you anymore.
I know you.
I know you wont stop until you get to the bottom of this.”
Shen Yanxiao was happy that Shen Qiu was finally willing to talk.
Shen Qiu sat down on a stone stool and patted the one next to him.
“Have a seat.
I will tell you everything you want to know.
But I hope that you can forget everything you hear tonight.”
Shen Yanxiao sat down next to him and faced him attentively.
Shen Qiu looked up at the cold moonlight and recalled the story that happened over a decade ago.
“The night 13 years ago was just like tonight.
The moon was bright but there were few stars in the sky.
I had slept early that day.
But suddenly, your grandpas trusted subordinate woke me up and said that your grandpa wanted to see me urgently.
In a mad dash, I hurried over to him.”
“When I arrived in your grandpas bedroom, he saw him cradling you.
His eyes were misty.
You were still in your swaddling robe, and next to him stood a handsome young man that looked very warm and gentle.”
