The Protective Overbearing Demon - Chapter 11
Fang Linlin wasn’t afraid of receiving harassing calls, and she directly scolded them on the phone. The other party told her to just wait, and that he would write his surname backwards if he fails to ruin her store. During this period, he also spat many insulting words, which were recorded by Fang Linlin.
(TNote: to write your own surname backwards = it means that one bets on it, and would even dishonor/not use one’s surname again, if one is wrong.)
Zhuo Feng was a little worried, but then the little white fox jumped to Zhuo Feng’s knees to eat leisurely. If this thing could cause trouble for Fang Linlin, she wouldn’t have looked for Fang Linlin to be a backer. She wanted help, not dragging people into danger.
Sure enough, Fang Linlin didn’t care about it at all, humming a tune while sending the recording of the harassment to a police captain. The Mayor’s daughter was threatened, it’s definitely a big deal! The captain immediately reported to his superiors when he received the news. Who knew if these people would take the opportunity to deal with the Mayor? They can’t relax at all!
So, when 7 or 8 ruffians rushed into the pet shop, the first thing they heard was, “Freeze! Hands up!”
The few people looked around dumbfoundedly, only to be horrified to find that they had been surrounded by the police. At first glance, this posture looked like encircling terrorists! Dozens of dark guns were pointed at them, urging them to put down their weapons in an instant, as they shook their heads and shouted, “Misunderstanding! Misunderstanding! We didn’t do anything!”
With a wave of his hand, the captain ordered the officers to handcuff them. Then, he stepped forward, kicked the steel bar on the ground, and grunted coldly, “Misunderstanding? So, what are these? Building materials? Do you think I’m a 3-year-old child?! If you have something to say, say it in the police station. Take them away!”
No matter how much they struggled and shouted, they were stuffed into police cars and immediately taken away. The captain then reentered the shop and politely said to Fang Linlin, “Miss Fang, the criminals have been captured, and the crisis here has been abated. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there is anything further that may trouble you.”
Fang Linlin smiled and said, “Thank you. I heard they are repeat offenders and have harassed quite a few shop owners already, so someone should have been instructing them. They aren’t only a nuisance, but a threat to public safety. You heard the recording and saw what they looked like. They are outrageous, and must be punished severely!”
“Many other shop owners were harassed too? Are they trying to rob stores?” The captain was surprised and frowned. “I wonder if Miss Fang has any other clues?”
Fang Linlin raised her chin at Zhuo Feng and said, “Write a copy of the list of those bosses for the Captain, we’re cooperating with the police here too. Captain, you have to make sure to protect the witnesses.”
Zhuo Feng quickly wrote up the list and handed it to the captain. As he looked at the captain seriously instructing him not to go to remote places by himself and not to reveal the identity that he was a witness, he quite couldn’t recover his senses. Why did he suddenly become a witness? Besides, hadn’t the police caught the ruffians while making a big scene?
After the captain left, Zhuo Feng took a minute to think things through and he quickly figured out the point. He looked at Fang Linlin and asked hesitantly, “You were able to get the police department to act immediately, and you have the same last name as Mayor Fang, you’re …”
Fang Linlin smiled calmly, “I’m his daughter. It’s okay, don’t start acting formally. From now on, you can just get along with me as if I’m a normal little boss. Now, you can rest assured that Zhuo Yichen’s hand wouldn’t be able to reach me, so just do your part-time job here. I’ll have two more people come in to work here in a couple of days, one to sell stuff and one to bathe pets and take care of the shop’s hygiene. They work full days and are paid more than you, but of course they don’t include food meals. Don’t hold any opinions in your heart.”
Zhuo Feng hurriedly shook his head, “No problem, no problem. I’m not even 18 years old yet, but you’ve already taken care of me by hiring me and helping me out. I should thank you instead.”
“If you want to thank me, thank Xiaobai. She introduced you to me!” Fang Linlin joked, remembering that she still had to tell her Dad about this incident. She then picked up her phone and left to go make a call in the lounge.
Zhuo Feng smiled down at the little white fox in his lap and said softly, “Of course, I have to thank you too, as it’s all thanks to you.”
[Of course! I’m the fox who wants to be the most powerful guardian angel! And a Nine-tailed Heavenly Fox!] The little white fox raised her head, which was round and cute. Zhuo Feng couldn’t help but kiss the red mark on her eyebrows. The little white fox shook and felt as if she had been electrocuted. She quickly jumped to the ground and ran away.
001 was surprised: [Host, are you shy?]
The little white fox’s fur stood on end: [What’s wrong with being shy? No one has ever kissed me before. How can human beings kiss me so easily? It just felt strange, crisp and numb, as if I was ill. I don’t want him to kiss me! Besides, men and women should keep a distance …]
[This doesn’t seem to matter much. Host, remember you haven’t transformed yet. According to the calculation, you have to have 10000 wish points to cultivate three tails and turn into a human being. Right now, you are just a pet. It’s normal for Zhuo Feng to kiss and hug you. It’s just a way for him to express his love for you. The closer he gets, the more he loves you.]
The little white fox raised her fluffy paws, looked at them, furiously digging a few times on the ground, and grunted, [Sooner or later I’m going to cultivate three tails and become a peerless beauty like my ancestor!]
001 was silent for a moment, as if sighing: [No wonder your ancestor looked at you differently, your tenacity is really unmatched. Whenever I start thinking hard about how to comfort you when you’re down, it turns out you would have instantly regained your spirit, like a fierce warrior who never tires of his goal.]
The little white fox was stunned, then held her head high and said proudly, [You noticed I’m improving, too, didn’t you? It’s not that I’m bragging. I’ve been tested at birth, showing that my talent is extremely high and rarely found in ten thousand years. I would have made it to nine tails if I hadn’t been restricted from practicing! Fortunately, I have a good mindset. Otherwise, in the past 100 years, wouldn’t I have gone astray like everyone else? It’s my way of preserving my life!]
[Having a goal, sticking to it but not forcing it, and being open-minded about everything is really the best way to keep yourself alive. Otherwise we would have already been punished by the heavens while we were still young, and there would have been no chance for us to find such a cultivation method, so I hope you continue to maintain it.]
The little white fox had always had confidence in herself, and this was no problem at all. She returned to accompany Zhuo Feng to feed the twenty or so pets, and if any of them didn’t cooperate, she would lower herself to show her sharp teeth and make intimidating noises in her throat. Despite her having slow cultivation progress, she was still a demon with magic powers. This intimidating action made them obey, greatly reducing Zhuo Feng’s workload.
She only figured out this trick in the past two days. If she knew the difference between herself and the world when she first came, why would she bother to protect those stray dogs? Why not just scare them away?! However, now that she has absorbed the knowledge of this world quickly, and she was sure she could adapt well in this world in the future!
After working for four hours at noon and in the evening, Zhuo Feng felt much more relaxed than before. In the past, waiters had to smile, deal with all kinds of guests, and even suffer from being exploited, and could only endure silently when customers lost their temper. Even more so, unloading goods for stores was also hard work. His wages were much less than others because he is underage, so it was hard-earned money. It had never been as good as his current working environment. Taking care of small animals was something he liked to do. If he finishes his work quickly and early, he could even take out his books and study them quietly.
After working for a few days, Zhuo Feng fell in love with this part-time job, and was full of vigor every day. By then, he treated the pet shop as a second home and worked very well.
One day, Zhou Feng had just finished his work and was ready to go back to school at noon, when he overheard Fang Linlin receiving a phone call from the captain, saying that the ruffians have been convicted of their crimes. They would be imprisoned for 3 months and will provide compensation to the shop owners for their mental anguish. Furthermore, they all confessed that they were instructed by Zhuo Yichen to deal with Zhuo Feng. The Zhuo family had to pull a lot of strings to keep the matter quiet and not tarnish Zhuo Yichen’s name. However, the police also went to the hospital to give a stern warning to Zhuo Yichen, promising next time, they will definitely pursue his crimes twice as hard.
The little white fox’s eyes lit up as soon as she heard it. [Stern warning! Zhuo Yichen has been tormented, hasn’t he? How many wish points do I get? How much?]
001 replied: [You got 10 points of wish for this matter. You have both directly and indirectly changed the trajectory of many people’s lives this time. Most importantly, you have continued to benefit Zhuo Feng while keeping Zhuo Yichen in trouble, thus the wish points are even higher than usual for the mission.]
Little white fox jumped happily. 10 points! Now, she has a total of 38 points now. She felt like she was getting a bit of a feel for the pattern of wish points. Ultimately, it revolved around helping good people fight bad people. The more influence she exerted to achieve a positive outcome, the more wish points she will receive. Even the punks’ outcomes were taken into consideration. After all, people who have read this story also held hopes that those ruffians would stumble, and as long as there was a wish, there would be a wish point. Thus, she didn’t have to only focus on Zhuo Feng, Zhuo Yichen and the others. No matter how small a mosquito is, it’s still meat. With accumulation, she’ll soon be able to cultivate a second tail!
(TNote: No matter how small a mosquito is, it’s still meat = No matter how small a mosquito is, it’s still an animal/ wild game/ edible to another.)
After thinking about this, the little white fox couldn’t wait for another moment, and ran out of the pet shop after sprinting two laps around Zhuo Feng. This was the agreement between them. As long as she has something to do on her own, she will turn around Zhuo Feng twice to inform him.
After leaving the pet shop, the little white fox ran to the orphanage. If she had to say who was the most disgusting person in this story, it would definitely be the Headmistress! With her many intimidating attempts to coerce Zhuo Feng, she was definitely a bad guy who should be defeated. If she was defeated, it would not only affect Zhuo Feng, a few classmates involved with her, and Zhuo Yichen’s plans, but it would also likely affect the fate of the hundreds of people at the orphanage, and even affect the governing body’s examination of this problem, thus affecting a wider area.
The more the little white fox thought, the more excited she was. When she saw the loathsome looking Headmistress, the other had already turned into a glittering wish point treasure chest in her eyes!
