Xiu's figure stood motionlessly on his spot. The flame that was released by Vermillion Bird struck his figure, burning a few strands of his hair and part of his clothes.
His bare skin was exposed in the air. There obviously was a severe burn, yet Xiu's eyebrows did not wrinkle in the slightest and just maintained his indifferent face.
"I shouldn't have believed in you!" Vermillion Bird glared at Xiu. From the very beginning, he was full of hostility towards Xiu. If it weren't for Shen Yanxiao, he could not have coexisted with him peacefully for so long.
Xiu had resolved her dilemmas several times before. The reason why Vermillion Bird dared to leave Shen Yanxiao's side was because he knew that inside Shen Yanxiao’s body, there was still the powerful Xiu.
However, Xiu was clearly by Shen Yanxiao's side, yet he had still let her suffer such a heavy injury.
How could Vermillion Bird not harbor hatred?
Xiu did not explain anything and just stood aside, looking at Shen Yanxiao.
Vermillion Bird did not care even if he were a G.o.d. He stepped forward to grab on Xiu’s clothes, looked up with red eyes and said, "If there is another time, I don't mind killing a G.o.d!"
Xiu looked at Vermillion Bird and slowly said, "There will be no next time."
Once was enough for him to clearly see his heart. He did not intervene at first because he knew Shen Yanxiao’s stubbornness. He respected Shen Yanxiao’s choice and gave her the opportunity to hone herself.
However, only at the moment when Shen Yanxiao was injured did Xiu know that his heart was not as calm as he had imagined.
At that moment, there was no rationality in his mind. He only wanted to kill.
That feeling of anxiousness, it was the first time Xiu had experienced it. He had lived for countless years, experienced several transformations of the continent and seen through the changes between the various races. Even at the end of the battle of the G.o.ds and devils, when he sacrificed himself, there weren’t such ups and downs within his heart.
However, when he saw Shen Yanxiao injured, he deeply knew he was anxious and angry.
This kind of feeling was very novel for Xiu, but he quickly realized the reason behind it.
Some people, some G.o.ds, would have their emotions stirred only once in a lifetime.
Today was that time for Xiu, and it was actually able to ruin the sky and destroy the land without any hesitation.
Xiu's heart was far deeper than what Shen Yanxiao could have imagined.
Vermillion Bird angrily loosened his hands, turned around and sat beside Shen Yanxiao. His red eyes looked at her as he pulled up the cuffs of his sleeves and carefully wiped the sweat on Shen Yanxiao's forehead.
Little Phoenix and Mini Dragon seemed to understand Shen Yanxiao's weak state. The two stuffed toys, which were loud and noisy all day long, were very honestly sitting on Vermillion Bird’s body, staring at Shen Yanxiao with their big black eyes and expressing their concern for her through them.
Shen Yanxiao's injuries this time had brought a lot of changes to many things. This was true for Xiu, for Vermillion Bird, and even for An Yan…
As for the five old urchins of the Moonlight Tribe who just come back from their stroll in the trading houses, this was a matter that made them go out of control.
After they returned to the Moonshine Tribe, they learned about what happened to Shen Yanxiao. The five elders practically rushed to Shen Yanxiao’s room in the first instant.
The five old elves who had experience the vicissitudes of life, after seeing the miserable appearance of Shen Yanxiao, one by one felt like a failure as the rim of their eyes turned red.
"Little Xiao'er, why are you so stubborn? What things can't you say to us?" Wu En looked at Shen Yanxiao and felt very distressed in his heart. When he thought that the little girl, who was so lively on ordinary days, had taken on this kind of miserable appearance, he wished he could immediately kill and settle accounts with the Qingyuan Tribe.
