The Protective Overbearing Demon - Chapter 19
The little white fox kept a close eye on Zhuo Yichen and Fu Xueqing, and wanted to avoid any accidents before the college entrance examination. But she didn’t expect to suddenly receive a rare task!
[System Posting Task: Save Zhuo Feng’s legs. Save him from serious injury and disability in the car accident. Reward: Upon completion, you will get a defense jade pendant and 10 wish points. Punishment: If the mission fails, the host will be weak for ten days. 20 wish points will be deducted.]
The little white fox . When the little white fox heard the words ‘Zhuo Feng’ and ‘car accident’, she didn’t even continue listening to the rest of the mission details and immediately ran to Zhuo Feng’s school. At this time of the year when school isn’t open, how could Zhuo Feng get into a car accident? Nonetheless, the system never posts a task for no reason, so something unexpected must have happened! She has to run faster! Faster! She mustn’t let Zhuo Feng get hurt!
The little white fox no longer held back and brought out wind spells to speed herself up. She shuttled through the city like a flash of lightning and rushed to Zhuo Feng’s school in 3 minutes. She doesn’t know where the accident might happen, but her intuition told her that it would be nearby. When she saw Zhuo Feng, she didn’t have time to celebrate before she caught a glimpse of a truck speeding towards Zhuo Feng!
At that moment, her heart jumped into her throat. Without thinking, she jumped at Zhuo Feng’s body!
A person and a fox instantly fell to the ground. Because of the blessing from wind spells, they skidded away more than ten meters before stopping. If it weren’t for the spiritual force she attached to Zhuo Feng’s back to protect him, the wounds from the friction wouldn’t be light.
Then, a loud crash resounded behind them, and the little white fox looked back. The truck had violently crashed into the roadside wall. Half of the front of the truck was wrecked apart, showing the strength of the impact. If Zhuo Feng didn’t escape the accident just now, he would be lucky to only lose both legs.
The little white fox sprang up and was about to run over to see the situation, but Zhuo Feng hugged her tightly and got up with a lingering fear. “Xiaobai, you saved me again.” He looked rather pale, took a few steps back and leaned against the wall, muttering, “You saved me again…”
The little white fox’s ears were on his chest, and when she heard his violent heartbeat, she also felt a little alarmed. She climbed up, gently rubbed her face on Zhuo Feng’s cheek, and cried out softly, [Don’t be afraid. Scholar, I will protect you!]
Zhuo Feng was miraculously comforted by her cry and calmed his shocked heart, before he bowed and rubbed her head. Dreadfully, he said, “Xiaobai, I only knew that dogs were loyal to their owners and would lay down their lives for their saviors, but I never thought foxes were so affectionate as well. It was too dangerous just now, Xiaobai…” He spoke with some difficulty, “Xiaobai, if there’s a next time, you leave me alone and keep yourself safe, okay?”
The little white fox immediately shook her head. Not to mention the task, they had been together for so long. How could she not save him when she sees him in danger? That’s impossible!
Zhuo Feng saw that she opposed it, and he couldn’t tell what he felt like in his heart. He was a grown boy, but he was moved to tears. Really, no one had ever treated him so well, never! He took a deep breath, wiped the tears in his eyes, buried his head in the little white fox’s fluff, and firmly said, “Okay, as long as we are together, I will never say that nonsense again. You treat me with such pure feelings, so I will make sure to never disappoint you!”
After he said these words, the school’s security and nearby residents heard the sound and ran over. Others called the police and ambulance. The school quickly checked the monitoring and saw that Zhuo Feng was almost hit. The guidance director and the school doctor rushed to Zhuo Feng and asked anxiously while looking at him. “How are you, Zhuo Feng? Are you hurt?”
Zhuo Feng held the little white fox and shook his head. “I’m fine. Fortunately, my little fox saved me, and I just fell.”
The two men were relieved. Then, the school doctor took a hold of Zhuo Feng and had a look at him. Knowing that he wasn’t dizzy and didn’t feel sick, the doctor said to the guidance director, “On the surface, it looks like nothing happened. But as you saw just now, I think it is necessary to go to the hospital to get a detailed examination of his head and internal organs. I can only be sure that it’s really okay after a full examination.”
Zhuo Feng is a student at their school, not to mention an orphan with nobody to take care of him. On top of that, he is the future champion recruited by the Principal himself. The guidance director didn’t dare to neglect him, so he took Zhuo Feng to the hospital himself. However, Zhuo Feng thought of the hospital expenses and didn’t want to go there. But then the guidance director said, “That truck driver was driving under influence, so he has to take full responsibility. Don’t worry about your medical expenses. He will be responsible for all of the expenses, so you don’t need to pay for them.”
Hearing that, Zhuo Feng just nodded. He looked back through the window and saw the driver pulled out of the driver’s seat by the police, seemingly with only minor injuries. The scene of the accident had been barred from public access, and someone was surveying the traces on the ground. Zhuo Feng then recalled how the truck suddenly rushed out from the corner. By the time he saw the truck, he was already pushed out of the way by the little white fox. The distance was too close, and if the fox was just a second later, the consequences were unimaginable. He really had no time to react at all.
He thought about it carefully. He was sure that the driver was accelerating instead of braking. Was he drunk and mistook the accelerator as the brakes?
Seeing that he didn’t speak, the guidance director thought he was scared. He consoled him, “Don’t worry, there is surveillance at the school gate. The situation just now was filmed. He will surely be held responsible for his faults. Drinking and driving is dangerous. Good thing it’s not the end of a school day. Otherwise, tsk, just thinking about it makes my hair stand on end. Zhuo Feng, there will be blessings after a great disaster, and you are a blessed child. And your pet, so little and already knows how to protect the master. Maybe there is some kind of spiritual connection between you two? So good ah! Don’t think too much of it, it was an accident. I’ll give you two days off, so you take a proper rest at home. When you come back, you’ll be our future champion. You have good days ahead.”
Zhuo Feng heard his good intentions and nodded his head. “Thank you, Director. I’m fine, I’ll just take a day off to recover. I’ll attend school the day after tomorrow.”
The guidance director saw that Zhuo Feng really didn’t look like there was something wrong, and finally let go of his anxiety, and his face also showed some appreciation. “Good boy. You aren’t frightened when you encounter an accident. Your future will definitely be bright.”
When he arrived at the hospital, the guidance director arranged a general examination for him. Pets are not allowed in the hospital, so the little white fox waited outside, thinking about the accident.
001 dutifully rewarded her. [Task is successfully completed. The Host is rewarded with one defense jade pendant, which can be used by the host at any time. In addition, the host is rewarded with 10 wish points. The Host already has 100 wish points and can cultivate two tails at any time.]
The little white fox asked seriously, [Was the car accident just now just a coincidence or was it a ploy?]
[The plot was not described in the original story. Can’t answer the Host. Host can investigate on her own.]
The little white fox wrinkled her eyebrows and squatted on the ground to carefully recall the situation at that time. That driver was obviously gunning for Zhuo Feng, and in the original story, Zhuo Feng lost his legs because of a drunk driving accident. Could things have changed so much and he would still meet with such an accident? She didn’t believe in such coincidences!
What are the chances of a person having a car accident in his lifetime? How could it be possible that Zhuo Feng encountered all of them by such a coincidence? She was more willing to believe that someone was intentionally trying to harm Zhuo Feng. However, she had been watching Zhuo Yichen and Fu Xueqing. The two had just fallen in love and were spending all day together, so how could they still think of others? Is there someone else who wanted to harm Zhuo Feng?
The stunned Madam Zhuo that just saw Zhuo Feng, suddenly appeared in the little white fox’s mind. She directly jumped up with a sharp glint in her eyes. It must be her! She must have known that Zhuo Feng is Father Zhuo’s son, and she was unwilling that Zhuo Feng was so much better than Zhuo Yichen. Therefore, after Zhuo Yichen failed to take the college entrance examination, she came to harm Zhuo Feng, and won’t let Zhuo Feng outshine her son.
The little white fox had turned around several times. She wanted to find evidence, but Zhuo Feng had just been frightened. He would definitely want to go home with her and calm down quietly, so she couldn’t leave right now. Besides, she didn’t know how to find evidence.
[The driver was instructed by that woman, but he certainly wouldn’t admit it. How can I prove it?]
[Host, it is hard to prove your suspicions as long as the driver doesn’t admit it. Also, the driver’s drunk driving allegation is obviously intended to be a way out. As long as he insists that it was unintentional, and that he was just drinking while driving, this will just remain an accident. If he tells the truth, it becomes a case of homicide and premeditated assault, which is too big a crime for him to ever admit.]
The little white fox clawed at the grass in annoyance, [Should we let that woman get away with it? Even if I leave her hospitalized like Zhuo Yichen, she can still find someone to harm Zhuo Feng again. This kind of thing can’t be prevented at all… What should we do?]
[The Host must remember to not kill at will. Wounding must only be done if the other party does it first. Otherwise, it will be suspected of disturbing the balance and be rejected by the Heavenly Dao of this world and waste all the Host’s efforts thus far.]
[I know. Am I the kind of fox who just does things casually?]
Speaking as if Zhuo Yichen’s injury was not caused by her, 001 wisely chose to be silent.
The little white fox grunted twice and decided to understand the laws of the world. Only by understanding this rule could she know how to deal with the wicked. Isn’t there the Internet? She went to keep an eye on the woman every day, and she didn’t believe that the woman wouldn’t accidentally show her hoof. As soon as she does something wrong, the little white fox would film it and post it online.
(TNote: show her hoof = showing flaws and revealing the truth/ revealing their true nature.)
After the little white fox cleared her head, Zhuo Feng and the guidance director came out of the hospital. Zhuo Feng picked up the little white fox and rubbed her back. He said, “The two test results will come out tomorrow, but the doctor said it should be okay. It’s fine, so don’t worry.”
The little white fox barked twice. Of course, she knows it’s okay, she protected him well!
One’s own people must be protected, and she has never failed in her duty!
The guidance director sent their master and pet pair home, and urged Zhuo Feng to get some rest. He also mentioned that Zhuo Feng could ask the school if he needed anything. Zhuo Feng thanked him and saw him off, and stroked the little white fox’s head. “Actually, there are still more good things than bad things, and more good people than bad people. This time, it was just an accident. We are all fine, so there is no need to be unhappy. Don’t you agree?”
The little white fox immediately shook her head like a rattle, leaving Zhuo Feng confused, “Xiaobai, are you thinking we should be unhappy?”
The little white fox shook her head even harder. Thinking that she had saved enough wishes, she jumped to the ground and ran to the house. Not being able to talk is killing her, she had to talk! She must talk!
