The Protective Overbearing Demon - Chapter 20
PLEASE READ TRANSLATOR ANNOUNCEMENT BELOW
Zhuo Feng didn’t know what happened to the little white fox. He was anxious to follow her up to the room, and then saw the little white fox sitting straight on the bed with her eyes closed. She appeared so inexplicable, so distant and ethereal. This couldn’t be the way an ordinary fox would pose. He couldn’t help but ask, “Xiaobai, what are you doing?”
The little white fox couldn’t explain, so she opened her eyes and looked at him, raised her little paws and waved at the door.
Zhuo Feng hesitated and said, “You’re telling me to go out, and not bother you?”
The little white fox immediately nodded and waved her paws faster to tell him to go out. Although Zhuo Feng still didn’t understand, he can see that the little white fox had something important to do and didn’t want him to watch. He hesitated for a moment, but he left the bedroom and closed the door for her. He sat alone on the sofa in the living room, thinking.
This little white fox was so human-like. She could understand everything, accompany him, take care of him, and even save his life. Now, she was sitting alone in the bedroom, so he can’t help but think… Did the so-called ‘fox fairies’ really exist? Is Xiaobai a fox fairy?
Zhuo Feng couldn’t completely accept this reasoning. Everything in this world could be explained by science. Those so-called ghost stories were all just myths to fill in the gaps of human understanding, so there couldn’t be a fox fairy.
But could a small white fox really have such a high IQ? And the little white fox had never grown up, and even the veterinarian couldn’t’ explain it. This obviously went against common sense. Thinking again, the habits of the little white fox were completely different from those the veterinarian described. She could eat anything, and likes dishes with heavy oil and salt content, just like the preferences of humans.
The more he thought about it, the more he felt that the little white fox was abnormal. Apart from her appearance, she was no different from human beings! Zhuo Feng’s mind was in a mess, but because of this incident, his worries from the car accident were all forgotten. Now, he only wanted to know what the little white fox was doing in there. He just had a car accident, and the little white fox was like this. He was inevitably anxious and worried. He felt like going to the Internet cafe to look up information about fox fairies and see if there was anything he could learn. However, he was afraid to leave at this time, and couldn’t leave the little white fox alone at home.
2 hours went by as Zhuo Feng sat in the living room restlessly, staring at the bedroom door. He kept paying attention to any movements inside, but he really didn’t bother the little white fox, fearing that his recklessness would somehow disturb the little white fox, though he didn’t know what might happen.
During these 2 hours, the little white fox kept operating her spiritual energy continuously. She was slowly absorbing the newly acquired spiritual energy into her body and integrated it into her demon core. She was close to cultivating her second tail, but she was stuck at the point where she couldn’t advance anymore. Now, with the spiritual energy transformed by 100 wish points, she felt as if she was directly immersed in spiritual liquid, breaking through the shackles without any obstacles and directly growing a second tail!
She spent the last two hours solidifying her cultivation level and stabilizing the one she had just achieved. If anyone was carefully observing her, they could see that she was growing a little bigger, and the two white tails behind her were swaying gently. With a faint halo all over her, and the teardrop-shaped mark between her eyebrows shining, she looked like a fox with an immortal aura.
Finally, the halo around her gradually dispersed, and the little white fox opened her eyes. She looked back, hugged her two tails excitedly and rolled on the bed several times, making a cheerful cry. She has two tails now! Her cultivation level had finally risen! There is hope for her future!
Zhuo Feng heard the fox making sounds and ran to the door. He asked anxiously, “Xiaobai? What’s wrong with you? Can I come in?”
The little white fox just reacted. She barked out… Why bark ah?! She can talk! At the thought of this, she immediately got excited, swished away her second tail, jumped to the door and opened it. She said happily to Zhuo Feng, “Scholar, I can talk! You’ll never have to guess what I mean again!”
Zhuo Feng looked at her in shock, his whole body turning stiff. After pinching himself fiercely, he said in disbelief, “You just spoke? You can talk? No, how can you talk?!”
The little white fox happily ran and jumped around the house, joyfully saying, “Because I am a fox fairy, ah! Now that my cultivation has advanced, of course I can talk.” She stopped to look at Zhuo Feng, cocked her head and said, “Scholar, why aren’t you happy for me? Is it unacceptable that I am a fox fairy? But I am a fox! Will you cease to like me if I am a fox fairy?”
“No, I don’t dislike you, and I’m not unhappy for you.” Zhuo Feng subconsciously explained, before sitting down on the sofa in a daze and wiping his face, then pinching himself fiercely.
The pain in his thigh made his face contort for a moment. Only then could he be certain that it really wasn’t a dream! He looked at the little white fox, still feeling overwhelmed, “You, are you really a fox fairy? A fox immortal? Is it the kind of fox fairy that helps people tell their fortune and accumulate merits?”
The little white fox was stunned, “Fortune telling can also accumulate merit? Isn’t that a breach of secrets? It would be nice not to be struck by lightning if we did that, you know? Who will give it merit? Besides, there are no demons who dare to call themselves immortals. Before my ancestors ascended, they did not dare to say that they were fox immortals ah! I am a vixen, a small demon.”
Zhuo Feng suddenly felt tired, coughed twice and said, “That … Xiaobai, ‘vixen’ and ‘demon’ aren’t good words. They were said when swearing and flirting. Can you… can you not say that about yourself? It’s weird.”
“That’s your human blind definition, they know what a vixen is like, it’s not those bad women who married bad men!” The little white fox said angrily and corrected, “I wanted to tell you a long time ago. My name is not ‘Xiaobai’, but ‘Yuanyuan’ and it’s ‘Su Yuanyuan’!”
This time it was Zhuo Feng’s turn to be stunned, “Yuanyuan?” He took a look at the size of the little white fox and nodded, “This name is indeed quite suitable. It’s my bad, there were so many stray dogs in the past, I called you guys ‘Xiaobai’, ‘Xiaohei’, ‘Xiaohuang’ or something for the sake of easy differentiation. I don’t think… uh… there are others… like you out there?”
Although he didn’t make it clear, the little white fox immediately understood what he meant, jumped into his arms and lifted up her little head, saying, “No, I am the only demon in the world. Isn’t it a surprise? Are you very surprised?”
Zhuo Feng tentatively touched her fur. After feeling that she was still as close to him as before, he suddenly settled down and hugged her and said, “Yes, it’s a surprise. No wonder you saved me and were so understanding… So you are a fox demon. Xiaobai, no, Yuanyuan, thank you for saving me. If it weren’t for you, I would have died long ago.”
The little white fox turned her eyes, rubbed his palm, and affectionately said, “Because you were good to me. When feeding stray dogs, you were good to me, so I am good to you. Didn’t you say we were family? We shall be together forever.”
Zhuo Feng just thought that the little white fox was about to leave for advanced cultivation. After all, the fox demon is different from the ordinary little foxes, so there was no need to stay with him, a mortal. Unexpectedly, the little white fox said that. He looked into the little white fox’s eyes and said happily, “You’re still willing to live with me? Great!”
Only then did he really take a moment to look at the changes in the little white fox. He found that she had grown a little. Although she was still adorable and only the size of a 2-month-old Pomeranian, she was indeed a little bigger than before, and had become even better looking! There was also the little white fox’s voice, which was soft and tender. It was better than any voice he had ever heard. It can really sweeten people’s hearts, making you just want to bring all the best things for her!
Such a unique little fox demon will always accompany him, and can communicate like a person and get along like family. It was really a surprise! After accepting this reality, Zhuo Feng finally got excited, touched the little white fox’s ears and tail, enjoying the warm and fluffy sensation. “It’s incredible! I must have accumulated a lot of virtues in my last life to meet you. You look so cute, and even your voice is so cute. You must be the cutest little fox demon in the world!”
Well, this was a compliment, but the little white fox suddenly reacted in hindsight. Why is her voice like this?!! Aren’t all other fox fairies charming??? What’s with her tender child-like voice? Who wants the cutest thing in the world? She just wanted to charm people, okay?! She was really angry!
But she looked up to see Zhuo Feng’s happy appearance, and snorted. Forget it, it’s fine if it is for the sake of this someone who likes it…
Zhuo Feng felt that he had gotten the most precious treasure in the whole world after experiencing the shattering of his three views. He accepted this reality and got excited! He really liked the little white fox. Now he knows that the other party is a fox demon and could also talk, his love almost overflowed! Maybe he had a hard time in the previous 18 years and encountered many hardships, but at this moment, he really thanked the heavens for arranging such a life for him. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have met his treasure!
(TNote: three views = the outlook on life, the outlook on values, and worldview.)
One person and one fox chatted for hours as if they hadn’t spoken for several lifetimes, and finally they stopped after feeling a little hungry, and they prepared to cook. When Zhuo Feng took the little white fox out to buy food, he repeatedly told her, “If people find out that you’re a fox demon, they would detain you for research, Yuanyuan. You should never talk outside and don’t behave like a fox demon.”
Su Yuanyuan nodded her head and said, “Don’t worry, I’m not stupid!”
How could Zhuo Feng feel at ease? He urged her again, “You can’t tell anyone you know, even Fang Linlin. The fewer people know about this kind of thing, the better.”
Su Yuanyuan naturally said, “What would I say to others? I only talk to you, Scholar. You can rest assured, I’m not that stupid. I only told you this because I trust you. Aren’t we family? Others are not family.”
Zhuo Feng found that Su Yuanyuan only treats him so specially, and trusts him so much that his heart suddenly felt warmed. Thinking of how he was rambling like an old mother, he couldn’t help but laugh, shaking his head and picking her up, “I’m too nervous, but it’s really easy to want to protect you like a child when you’re like this.”
Su Yuanyuan slapped her paw unwillingly. “I’m not a child. I’m 100 years old! I will grow up soon!”
Zhuo Feng looked at her in surprise, but he couldn’t see that she was 100 years old. However, after listening to what she said, he still felt that it was childish. He smiled and said, “Yes, yes, Yuanyuan will grow up soon. Then you will become a stunning beauty with boundless charm.”
After 2 hours of chatting, Zhuo Feng has some understanding of Su Yuanyuan and knows that her lifelong ambition is to cultivate and become an immortal, and besides that, she wanted to grow into a demon who could charm all beings. Although he couldn’t imagine that picture of the cute little fox, it didn’t prevent him from saying nice things to make Su Yuanyuan happy.
Su Yuanyuan was really happy. She comfortably nestled in Zhuo Feng’s arms, and said with infinite yearning for the future, “You wait. When I turn into a human being in the future, I will definitely look better than the most beautiful beauty in the world, as good as my ancestors!”
Zhuo Feng chuckled, “Oh? So powerful? Then, when will Yuanyuan be able to take human form?”
Su Yuanyuan smiled but suddenly didn’t know how to answer. She needed 10,000 wish points to turn into a human form.She probably wouldn’t have enough until decades have passed, but Zhuo Feng would definitely be gone by then. Hesitating for a moment, she didn’t tell the truth, but only said, “It depends on fate… How can it be so easy to cultivate? This time, because I saved your life and accumulated merits, I could break through. Let’s just let things happen in the future.”
“Well, you have such a good mindset. You will definitely be able to cultivate into an immortal in the future. No need to rush.” Zhuo Feng had no idea about these things, and naturally wouldn’t rush the fox to take human form. He stopped talking to her as he came out of the alley, so as not to let others notice the anomaly.
The two usually eat their lunch and dinner at the pet store, and would only buy their own breakfast. However, after buying several times, Zhuo Feng found that Su Yuanyuan didn’t like these breakfast dishes. So, he bought simple kitchenware and learned to cook at home. Fortunately, his title of genius wasn’t fake. He was able to cook delicious meals in less than ten times trying. He also learned the recipes of many complicated dishes just to make Su Yuanyuan happy.
Today was a big day. Although he was unlucky enough to almost get into a car accident, unexpectedly, he received the world’s greatest treasure in return. This happy event was enough to wash away all bad luck, so he planned to cook a big meal to celebrate.
After choosing and buying the vegetables, he made sweet and sour fish, fried tenderloin, braised chicken legs, braised lion head, and mushroom soup. Among all the dishes, only the mushroom soup was light, and all the others were ‘heavily seasoned’ as how Su Yuanyuan liked them. Originally, he wanted to make a few more, but Su Yuanyuan felt it was too wasteful to consume that much. It was hard to make so many dishes, so she didn’t let him do it.
(TNote: braised lion head = it’s the name of a pork meatball dish.)
Even if it’s just four dishes and one soup, it was already very lavish for each of them. Zhuo Feng, as usual, picked the carrots he didn’t eat for Su Yuanyuan, and picked a small amount of green pepper into his own bowl. Naturally, all the seasoning cilantro was picked out and thrown away. Although they don’t like to eat these things, many dishes were really not delicious if they didn’t use these seasonings. Fortunately, they developed a habit of picking around without any trouble at all.
Zhuo Feng’s craftsmanship was very good. The colorful and fragrant dishes had Su Yuanyuan eating with much gusto. She ate while praising, “I’ve long wanted to say to you, Scholar is worthy of being a scholar. You learn everything well, even your cooking is delicious!”
Zhuo Feng remembered that she always seemed to call himself ‘scholar’ and asked, “Why do you call me ‘scholar’? Didn’t you learn my name when you met me?”
Su Yuanyuan answered without raising her head, “Because you are good at studying, you are so fond of studying at home, and they said you would be a champion scholar. So, isn’t that the same as a scholar?”
Zhuo Feng thought that she was reading too many storybooks, laughed and said, “Although the scholar and the vixen are always paired together, they are almost always tragic. Are you so afraid of my ingratitude?”
Su Yuanyuan gave him a blank look, “Is my vision that bad? I’m not one of those stupid foxes!”
So confident, he was speechless. Zhuo Feng rubbed her little head and smiled. “You are the smartest, and I am not one of those stupid scholars. I am definitely the best for you.”
One person and one fox enjoyed the delicious food happily. Once she was done, Su Yuanyuan contentedly plopped down on the sofa. She felt that the joy of one afternoon should be enough for Zhuo Feng to face her bad thoughts head on. After Zhuo Feng came back from washing the bowl, she threw out the explosive news. “Scholar, don’t accept the mediation when you go to the police station tomorrow. The driver deliberately rammed into you.”
