"I will have to trouble Uncle Qiu to take care of my grandpa during this period of time.” Shen Yanxiao did not dare to get too close to Shen Qiu. The blood had a deep and foul smell, she did not want this foul smell to dirty Shen Qiu’s nose.
Shen Qiu looked at the little girl as she was deliberately moving away and couldn't help but laugh.
"I'm a doctor, even corpses and injuries are nothing to me so you don't have to hide it. I can tell that your body has been contaminated by blood; I could smell it since I arrived in the backyard.”
Shen Yanxiao scratched her head. For her, Shen Qiu was like her other grandfather; she could not help but feel warm when around him.
"You must not mind these matters. It’s impossible to avoid deaths in this world. Some people will do anything just to reach their own interest and in return, they will pay the corresponding price. I have seen Shen Duan scheming against your grandfather. There's nothing you need to worry about. It’s just that no matter what, they were sons of your grandfather; it’s inevitable that he would agonize.” Shen Qiu said.
"I know, but they must die." Shen Yanxiao knew that if Shen Feng were present, he would not be able to endure it and would plead for their lives. But she could not let the root of all her troubles continue to exist. In fact, she did not feel anything after killing them at all. She could not forgive anyone like Shen Duan and Shen Yue and let them live.
Once they had been given the opportunity to continue living, they would certainly continue to do shameful deeds.
One could only either endure or be ruthless.
And being merciful to enemies was being ruthless to oneself.
Shen Yanxiao definitely did not dare to do such a stupid thing. To put a tiger back in the forest and the dragon into the sea, how much price would she pay later on?
"Good girl, it has also been hard for you." Shen Qiu raised his hand and rubbed Shen Yanxiao’s head. He was only a doctor, so when the Vermillion Bird Clan had been in crisis, he was powerless. Now that everything was fine, he could finally let out a sigh of relief.
Shen Yanxiao seemed to be thinking of something as she looked at Shen Qiu, and finally couldn’t help but asked, “Uncle Qiu, Have you been with grandpa for many years?”
"Well, ever since before he became the Clan Head of the Vermillion Bird Clan. My father used to be one of the backbones of the Vermillion Bird Clan, so I was also brought up by the Vermillion Bird Clan and grew up with your grandfather.” Shen Qiu thought that this little girl, Shen Yanxiao, was just asking out of curiosity.
Shen Yanxiao blinked her eyes before she smiled and asked, “Uncle Qiu followed grandfather for such a long time, I have something I wish to know and couldn’t help but to ask Uncle Qiu.”
“Ask it then.”
“I want to know, that day when I returned to the Vermillion Bird Clan, did you see the appearance of the man who brought me back? That man is my savior and I want to have the chance to thank him. I wanted to ask grandpa about it but grandpa is not in a good mood right now, I dare not disturb him.” Shen Qiu was his personal doctor, who was almost always beside Shen Feng. Shen Yanxiao thought that Shen Qiu should have seen that mysterious man.
"This..." Shen Qiu's face showed a hint of awkwardness. He looked at Shen Yanxiao with some hesitation.
"I don't think it's needed... When he sent you back, your grandfather had already thanked him." Shen Qiu's eyes were looking away; it seemed that he did not want to continue this topic with Shen Yanxiao anymore.
However, Shen Yanxiao’s guess was right, Shen Qiu did see that man but for some reason, did not want to reveal who the man was.
It seemed that Shen Feng did not wish this matter to be mentioned before her; probably, he still was not prepared to tell her.
However, for Shen Qiu to reveal such an awkward appearance...
