Chapter 990: Twilight City (8)
They felt as if the thief was pitying them!
This incident immediately alerted the City Lord of Twilight City.
Almost all the soldiers in the city had moved out to search for that thief.
However, everyone had subconsciously forgotten about the group of people from Sun Never Sets.
In their minds, wealthy people like them who could spend millions of gold coins in a day would never do something degrading as thieving.
The losses they suffered yesterday night barely amounted to their daily expenses.
There was no need for them to steal, right
Little did they know…
The city lord that they had assumed to be swimming in money was the culprit of the theft!
When Shen Yanxiao woke up, it was already late in the morning.
After she changed her clothes, she went to the dining room to look for food.
Coincidentally, the five beasts were also seated there.
When they saw her, they immediately waved for her to come over and eat together.
Shen Yanxiao slowly walked over and sat down.
The food was made by a chef of a decent restaurant in Twilight City.
Others might find it extremely delicious, but for the Phantom members who were accustomed to best delicacies, the food was not that delicious.
“How was your harvest last night” Qi Xia propped his chin and looked at Shen Yanxiao who still had a sleepy look in her eyes.
Shen Yanxiao took a sip of the porridge and said, “Enough for us to spend in Twilight City.”
The five of them immediately understood Shen Yanxiaos achievements last night.
As expected, this little girl was very shameless.
She used someones money to slap the faces of Twilight City.
Moreover, she acted as if it was only natural.
It was really admirable.
As the six of them were eating, Nangong Mengmeng returned from her little excursion with a small string of ornaments in her hands.
The moment she saw Shen Yanxiao, she immediately rushed over.
“Teacher! Teacher! I have some gossip to share!” Nangong Mengmeng woke up early in the morning.
However, when she noticed that Shen Yanxiao was still resting, she did not disturb her Teachers sweet dreams.
Instead, she wandered around Twilight City to waste some time.
As she wandered around, she heard some interesting gossip.
“What is it” Shen Yanxiao had yet to fully wake up.
She stared at the food in front of her in a daze as she ate mouthful after mouthful.
Nangong Mengmeng said excitedly, “I heard that many families in Twilight City were robbed last night!”
“Oh.” Shen Yanxiao continued eating.
The expressions of the five beasts were complicated.
“Err, Teacher, you knew it already” Seeing Shen Yanxiaos lack of reaction, Nangong Mengmeng was curious.
“No, I havent anything about a thief.” Shen Yanxiao continued to struggle with the millet porridge.
“Hes not an ordinary thief.
Rumor has it that hes a very powerful thief.
In one night, he managed to steal from all the merchants in Twilight City.
But there is one weird thing about the whole situation.
It is that instead of wiping the storage rooms clean, he left a portion of the wealth for them.
Dont you think hes a rather disciplined thief I never knew thieves were so upright.” Nangong Mengmeng tried her best to make the gossip she heard sound interesting.
Shen Yanxiao still had no reaction.
Nangong Mengmeng was somewhat disappointed.
She still hoped that this gossip could motivate her teacher.
Shen Yanxiao did not have any reaction, but the expressions of the five beasts were getting more and more tangled.
“Senior Uncles, whats wrong” Nangong Mengmeng finally realized the abnormality in her five uncles expression.
I just ate too much,” Qi Xia calmly said.
If Nangong Mengmeng were to know that the thief she mentioned was the Teacher seated opposite of her, what would she think
