She lost to someone the same age as her... This was a humiliation that she had never suffered before in her entire life! One day, she would make Yun Luofeng pay with interest.

"Who was it? Who poisoned my blood lion?"

Suddenly, a furious bellow was heard from Nangong Lan. She swiftly walked to Nangong Yunyi with two tracks of tears flowing from her eyes.

"Eldest Brother, I've let you down! I didn't look after the blood lion well and allowed others to have a chance to exploit it. Don't worry, I will certainly find out who wanted to harm you and seek justice for you!"

Her tear-stained appearance made everyone unable to link her to the culprit.

Nangong Qing's face darkened as he coldly stated, "Lan'er, not many people can come into contact with your spirit beast. How come you had no clue someone poisoned it?"

Nangong Lan shook her head. "I also don't know what happened. In my view, it's impossible for anyone to have been able to come into contact with the spirit beast. Father, you must investigate the truth and avenge Eldest Brother!"

"Family Head." The elders of the Family could not continue watching and spoke up, "Miss had good intentions. Who knew she would be used by someone else? Perhaps the one who that person wanted to harm was Miss but didn't know Miss wanted to give the blood lion to someone else."

"Family Head, Miss was also a victim. Don't blame her. Her feelings toward Eldest Young Master are very sincere, so she feels sadder than anyone about this matter."

Nangong Qing's face slowly eased. "Lan'er, leave for now. I hope you can discover the truth soon. Otherwise, don't blame Father for not recognizing you as my daughter!"

Nangong Lan lowered her head, her hands that hung beside her tightly clenching. "Yes, Father. This daughter will do as you order."

After saying this, she looked up. Her sight appeared to accidentally dart past Yun Luofeng's face before she turned around to walk out.

The moment she turned around, the hatred in her eyes could not be hidden anymore and revealed itself. Viciousness permeated her eyes.

"Yi'er." Nangong Qing looked at Nangong Yunyi with a faint smile and said with a gentle tone, "You've been frightened. Go and rest with your friend first. Father will handle this matter for you."

Nangong Yunyi nodded and was about to turn around to leave when Yun Luofeng's voice was suddenly heard beside him.

"Nangong, this is at least someone's birthday present for you, isn't it a pity if you don't take it?"

Nangong Yunyi paused his steps and blinked. "But it's been poisoned. It won't acknowledge me even if I retain it."

"Wait a moment for me."

Yun Luofeng slowly walked toward the blood lion. A few silver needles appeared in her hand and rapidly entered the spirit beast's body. The originally restless blood lion abruptly calmed and silently stood inside the cage, unmoving.

"Use plague flower, blood spirit herb, golden ginseng, heaven's will fruit, and a drop of fresh blood from this blood lion to boil a decoction. Feed it to him for three continuous days, and he will recover."

Those words were directed at Nangong Qing. After saying this, she walked toward Nangong Yunyi with upturned lips. "It's late. I should leave."

"Let me send you off."

"No need." Yun Luofeng shook her head. "Nangong, with these two spirit beasts' protection, your safety won't be a concern anymore."

After saying this, she gradually disappeared in the night without a second look back.
