The Good For Nothing Seventh Miss Chapter 11
Chapter 11: Placing Righteousness Before Family (2)
"What exactly happened that day? The three of you allowed someone to enter the dungeon as if you've simply disregarded the rules!" Shen Ling did not dare to trouble Shen Feng for trivial matters like an interrogation, and so, he immediately questioned the three guards.
The three guards were also aware that the matter was not as simple as it seemed, and that made them even more cautious.
"We did not deliberately allow the seventh miss to enter the dungeon. We were not at the entrance when the seventh miss sneaked into the dungeon," one of the guards carefully said.
"Not at the entrance? Then where have you gone to? Don't tell me you are not aware that no one is allowed to leave without permission when they are guarding the dungeon?!" Shen Ling questioned angrily.
The dungeon that imprisoned the magical beasts was the Vermilion Bird Family's restricted grounds. Not only did the guards have to prevent any unauthorized entry by the family members, but they also had to guard against outsiders who could infiltrate the dungeon to cause destruction. A guard who left their posts without permission meant they neglected their duty.
The guards knew that it would be hard for them to escape from blame, and one of them quickly added, "We admit that we were careless. However, the fifth miss and sixth young master had something urgent that required our help that day and so, I had…"
The moment the guard spoke, the entire main house became unusually quiet. Everyone's gaze shifted toward Shen Jiayi and Shen Jiawei in a blink of an eye.
The two youngsters, who felt as guilty as thieves, acted like birds who were startled by the mere twang of a bow, and panic could be seen from their faces.
"Did that happen?" Shen Feng, who was silent until then, asked. His sharp gaze fell on the anxious pair of siblings.
"Grand…" The flustered Shen Jiayi started to speak up to refute the guard's story, but she did not know what to say.
Shen Jiawei did not even try to say anything as he lowered his head like a scared ostrich.
At that moment, Shen Yue, who had stayed silent, stood up and respectfully spoke to Shen Feng. "Reporting to the Family Head, these two children will be sixteen years old in another month's time. Therefore, they have been seeking information about magical beasts during this period. That day, these two unfilial children originally wanted to find fifth brother to inquire about the magical beasts, but coincidentally, he left to settle some matters. In the face of this situation, they could only turn to anyone they could find in a crisis and thus, disturbed the guards who were guarding the dungeon. Unexpectedly, a bystander took advantage of this opportunity and trespassed the dungeon and committed a serious mistake. I ask of the Family Head to severely punish that offender!"
Shen Yue's upright speech was filled with tenacity as he spoke to apologize for this two children. This had caused Shen Yue's expression to slightly ease up.
On the contrary, Shen Jiayi and Shen Jiawei paled. They initially counted on their father to help them out of that trouble, but unexpectedly, he took the initiative to ask forgiveness for them.
How could a father not acknowledge his family members, and would place righteousness before his family?
Everyone sighed when they saw Shen Yue's decision to place righteousness before his family, and they believed his explanation to some extent.
In the Brilliance Continent, any youngster who had reached the age of sixteen would undergo a special coming-of-age ceremony, and they would own their very first magical beast! Therefore, Shen Jiayi and Shen Jiawei's actions were considered as reasonable as it was a significant affair for everyone.
In that world, both battle aura and magic were associated with one's own strength while a magical beast was a partner that accompanied them when they fight. If a person were not so talented in terms of battle aura and magic, they would hope to seek for a fortuitous encounter with their first magic beast. If they could control an extremely powerful magical beast, they could then utilize its mighty strength to turn tables when they faced a much more powerful opponent.
