“What are you saying?” Ji Qingshang frowned slightly.
Ji He said, “Within the Kingdom of the Sacred Dragon, almost all the terminators are under the Grand Tutor’s jurisdiction. Further, it is the Grand Tutor’s responsibility to protect the World-Termination-Armour. Hence, no one in the entire Kingdom is more concerned about the terminators than the Grand Tutor. Ji Fengyan is now specially honored only because she inherited the World-Termination-Armour and has become the Ji family’s new terminator. Otherwise, do you think that the Grand Tutor really has nothing better to do than to waste his effort on such a homely girl?”
Ji Qingshang’s looked rather surprised at his words. But upon careful consideration, she felt that they were true.
Ji He continued, “You know of Ji Fengyan’s past. When she lived in the Ji house previously, she was even worse off. Did you ever see the Grand Tutor show any kindness to her then? Or take any interest in her? It was only when she got the World-Termination-Armour that the Grand Tutor paid a little attention to her. All this is due to her status, not to her person.”
“She snatched the World-Termination-Armour! She is not worthy to have the World-Termination-Armour! And even more unworthy of the Grand Tutor’s attention!” Ji Qingshang ground her teeth in hatred.
Ji He laughed and said, “The matter is easily resolved. I have sent someone to make some inquiries. Ji Fengyan was suddenly injured, but just before she was injured, she had an altercation at the Sacred Dragon Auction House with Lei Qin from the Lei family. Her injuries are almost certainly due to Lei Qin. Ji Fengyan previously caused Lei Yuanxu from the Lei family to lose an arm. Lei Qin went into much trouble to locate the Tree of Flowing Bloodshed and Ji Fengyan snatched it away. This enmity will not be resolved so easily. Right now, we don’t have to do anything. The Lei family will naturally deal with Ji Fengyan and we do not need to act in defiance of the Grand Tutor. Do you understand?”
Ji Qingshang’s expression flickered. She thought for a long while before saying, “Ji Fengyan recklessly and repeatedly incurred the wrath of the Lei family. It has nothing to do with us.”
Ji He nodded his satisfaction.
“That’s right, that’s the way it is.”
“But… did Ji Fengyan really snatch the Tree of Flowing Bloodshed from Lei Qin? I have heard that the Tree of Flowing Bloodshed is one of the Demon Clan’s most treasured items. If she possesses a treasure like that, isn’t it like…” Ji Qingshang asked pointedly.
Ji He said, “Of course such a precious item should not belong to her. However, you need not concern yourself with this matter right now. I will discuss it properly with your Oldest Uncle.”
Ji Qingshang nodded obediently, but a trace of malice flashed across her eyes.
“What the Grand Tutor said before he left…”
Ji He said, “Since the Grand Tutor has asked us to do so, we will naturally ‘obey’!”
As they spoke, Linghe who had hurried after them had arrived at the door but was blocked by the Ji family bodyguards. When Ji He heard of it, he went to the door but refused to let Linghe in. He only allowed Linghe to leave the carriage and its contents and said that he would pass them to Ji Fengyan later.
After a long argument with Ji He, Linghe was almost bursting with frustration. However, he heard that Ji He had sent someone to care for Ji Fengyan’s injuries. Worried that he would delay Ji Fengyan’s treatment, he desisted and handed the items over to the Ji family with many remonstrances to hand the things to Ji Fengyan. Then he left unwillingly with Yang Jian.
However, when Ji He ordered the items to be removed from the carriage, each item that emerged caused Ji He’s heart to tremble.
As he looked at the mountain of treasure and the Tree of Flowing Bloodshed, Ji He grew almost frantic with greed!
