Chapter 190: Taking the Dark Path (5)
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
“Brother, it’s not chess that I want to play with you.” Shen Miao shook her head and said, “Previously, you asked me if we should just let this matter rest. Let’s play a big game of chess. What do you think?”
Shen Qiu was stunned at first, then he said with his eyes wide-open, “You…”
In the beginning, the black chess piece was gentle, only defending and not attacking. At the end, it suddenly turned the situation around, swallowing the white pieces one by one. What Shen Miao tried to say through her style of playing was that she did not kick up a fuss, not because she planned to let it go, but… she was waiting for an opportunity, waiting for those people to make a mistake before giving them a fatal blow.
“There are many ways to achieve your goal.” Under the light, the girl held a black chess piece in her hand. Her fair fingers formed a sharp contrast with the dark chess piece, looking strangely beautiful. She said casually, “If this path doesn’t work, then we’ll change it. If we can’t do it in broad daylight, then we’ll do it in the dark. They’ve already blocked their way out. Next, it’s our turn to play chess.”
Under the light, Shen Miao looked like a delicate beauty. However, at this moment, even Shen Qiu couldn’t help but look at her. The girl’s posture was composed, and it seemed to contain a huge amount of energy. In her mind, everyone had become a chess piece on the chessboard and she had the situation under control.
Shen Qiu felt a mixed feeling. He had always felt that Shen Miao was too naive and with her nativity, she would probably be used by people. But now, he could clearly see that his sister had already grown up without him knowing. She had outdone her in terms of evaluating the situation and seeing things in a bigger picture.
“Sister, I don’t understand,” he said.
“Brother, if you believe me, leave this to me.” Shen Miao said, “Prince Yu will definitely cause trouble for the Shen family in the future. We need to get rid of him once and for all. We don’t need such an enemy.”
“Didn’t you say just now that Prince Yu is backed by the royal family so I can’t go against him directly? What are you going to do?” Shen Qiu asked worriedly.
“I told you long ago that if we can’t take the bright path, we’ll take the dark path. There are thousands of paths in the world, and one of them will definitely work.” Shen Miao said indifferently, “Prince Yu is just a turtle with a shell. Without his shell, he’s nothing.”
While Shen Qiu was dumbfounded, Shen Miao smiled at him and said, “But Brother, I need some money, so… sell the things His Majesty gave us.”
Shen Qiu wanted to ask Shen Miao what she wanted to do, but for some reason, when he met Shen Miao’s bright eyes, he could not say anything. When he faced Shen Xin, he would occasionally argue with him. However, as long as Shen Miao looked at him quietly, Shen Qiu felt that he would listen to her unconditionally.
Shen Qiu came back to his senses and said, “Alright, I’ll get someone to pawn them and send you the money.”
“Thank you, Brother.” Shen Miao nodded. “It’s getting late. Brother, go and rest.”
“Don’t worry about Prince Yu, and don’t tell our parents. I’ll take care of it.”
Shen Qiu scratched his head and left. When he left Shen Miao’s room, he suddenly facepalmed and frowned. He had a feeling that he was being protected by his sister!
In the house, Gu Yu asked carefully, “Miss, are we really going to use that much money tomorrow?”
Shen Miao’s gaze froze. It had been a long time since Gu Yu saw Shen Miao look so serious.
