The Protective Overbearing Demon - Chapter 3
In the confrontation, the two sides immediately started to fight, and Zhuo Feng tried his best to give them a lesson. But he was weak against four, and soon fell into a losing battle. The punks were so enraged by the beating that they pushed him to the ground and kicked him. Zhuo Feng was outmatched and could only bow to protect his head as best he could.
The little white fox was also on fire when she saw this scene. Zhuo Feng was the person she wanted to protect. These people beat up Zhuo Feng right in front of her, but they obviously didn’t pay attention to her! In a flash of brilliance, she suddenly thought of a way to deal with them, she quickly rushed towards the yellow hair, attached a layer of hard metal to her fangs with a gold spell, pounced on him and bit him hard on the calf!
The yellow hair was about to kick Zhuo Feng’s head when he was suddenly bitten by force and let out an alarming scream. After a bite, the little white fox jumped to one side. The yellow-haired guy suddenly fell to the ground, and the blood on his shin soaked his pants. There were even a few holes bitten out of it. Yellow hair was in pain and fear, screaming and shrieking. His pale face full of cold sweat. Others dragged him to the wall, looking at his wound and cursing angrily, “This beast! Just wait, if we catch it later, we’ll break its legs before skinning it and stewing it!”
Zhuo Feng had already taken the opportunity to climb up, pick up the little white fox and ran to the corner to anxiously chase away those stray dogs, “Quick! Come on, let’s go! Run! Run!”
After being pushed a few times by Zhuo Feng, one dog really ran quickly, while the others timidly and hesitantly ran towards the alleyway, but were suddenly blocked by Zhuo Yichen, who was holding a stick. Zhuo Yichen glared at the guys and said angrily, “Did the bite kill you? If you’re not dead, do something right!”
“Yes, Brother Chen!”
As soon as several people rushed over, the stray dogs became even more afraid when they saw them, and retreated further back. Zhuo Feng couldn’t go, so he had to fight with them again.
The little white fox cried beside him, [Run! These people want to kill you, just go anywhere!]
But her mana wasn’t enough. Only foxes can understand what she was saying. Others just thought it was barking furiously. Seeing that they were about to fall into the clutches of the devil, the little white fox thought of attaching a layer of metal to the tips of her claws, leaping high and scratching at the face of the one who was leading them, leaving three bloodstains directly on his face. Zhuo Feng knocked him down with one punch, and turned to shout when he was fighting with the other two: “Run! Run quickly!”
The little white fox barked at the several stray dogs, but they just cowered in fear, unable to understand what she was trying to convey. Seeing Zhuo Yichen coming over with a stick ready to do it himself, the little white fox was smart enough to let out a few small, inconspicuous sparks that landed on the tips of a few stray dogs’ tails. Those stray dogs were so frightened that when they suddenly felt a sharp pain in their tail, they jumped forward in an instant. The explosive force of this moment made Zhuo Yichen, who waved a stick, fail to stop them. In the blink of an eye, they ran away without leaving a trace!
The little white fox blinked. The spark was actually particularly small, and it hadn’t hurt as much as a pin prick, which showed how much the dogs had been frightened. That’s good, mission accomplished! She quickly bypassed Zhuo Yichen and jumped on Zhuo Feng’s schoolbag. She used a wind spell to blow the thick dust on the wall toward the several bad guys, and immediately blinded them. She now has some idea of how to use the spell effectively and with the utmost discreetness.
Zhuo Feng turned around to retrieve the white fox and his bag while they were blinded, and ran as fast as he could down the road! The little white fox heard Zhuo Yichen’s shout, looked back from Zhuo Feng’s shoulder, and saw Zhuo Yichen throwing his stick in a fit of rage. Unfortunately, they had already ran away and soon arrived at the main road, and those people didn’t dare to catch up.
The little white fox relaxed and stayed safely in Zhuo Feng’s arms while she waited for the reward, but the strange thing was; Why hasn’t 001 declared the mission complete?
When little white fox was confused, Zhuo Feng had already run to the orphanage five blocks away. He looked down at the little white fox and instead of entering the gate, he walked around to the back of the orphanage and found a relatively intact half-demolished house and went in.
He sat on the ground against the wall, raised the chin of the little white fox and looked at its teeth, and then raised its little claws and looked at the tips of its claws. Only then did he feel relieved and stroked the little white fox’s head, guiltily saying, “Fortunately, you weren’t injured. If it wasn’t for your cleverness, I really didn’t know what would have happened just now. I was trying to feed you guys a little bit, but I didn’t expect to get you into trouble. I don’t know if the little black ones will find food if they run away, alas…”
The description of the system task suddenly appeared in the mind of the little white fox. Save the five stray dogs, and avoid Zhuo Feng’s remorse and sadness. She hasn’t finished the task yet. No wonder 001 didn’t give her a reward! The little white fox instantly perked up, stood up straight and rubbed herself against Zhuo Feng’s face, softly barking twice, [Don’t feel bad, it wasn’t your fault at all.]
Although Zhuo Feng couldn’t understand what she said, he was cured by her close actions. Touching her soft fur, he smiled and said, “Thank you for not blaming me, Xiaobai. Dogs really are men’s best friend, it’s so true.”
(TNote: Xiaobai = Little White.)
[Is there a sentence like that? But I am a little fox! Can’t you see it at all? Look at my tail! And I’m not called ‘Xiaobai’!]
The little white fox wagged her tail, which was fluffier than a dog’s, but Zhuo Feng mistook it for wanting food and said, “Are you hungry? I’ll get you something to eat.”
He took out a ham sausage from his schoolbag, put it down again, and walked out with the little white fox in his arms. “There is a faucet for workers in the east. Let’s wash our hands, then eat. I’m going back to the orphanage later. Small animals are not allowed in the orphanage. Would you stay here first? You hurt them today, if they see you, it’s over. Wait till I figure out a safe place to send you.”
With a few words, they were at the faucet, which had a small cement pool underneath it, making it easy to wash their hands. When he finished washing, the little white fox also stretched out her paws to wash under the water, making Zhuo Feng laugh, “Little one, are you learning from me? Your quite clever. No wonder you aren’t afraid of those people today, and rushed forward. You saved me today, do you know that?”
He nudged the little white fox’s pink nose and carried it back to the shabby house. Before that, all the dog food was dropped in the alley, and there was only one ham sausage in his schoolbag. He planned to eat it with steamed bread at night, to improve the food. But right now, he was afraid that the little white fox would be hungry, so he opened it and gave it to the little white fox.
The little white fox leaned in and sniffed, smelling a fragrant scent. Its unlike anything she had ever eaten before, and became interested. Then took a cut of ham sausage into her mouth and ate it. It was fragrant and tender, soft and salty. The little white fox found it particularly delicious, swallowing a bite and took another from his palm. No wonder the clan used to love to go to the human world, the food in the human world is so delicious!
Zhuo Feng watched her eat happily, and unconsciously smiled. The haze lingering in his heart faded away.
[Task is completed, the cleaning technique will be rewarded, and the host can use it at any time. Just now, the host’s spells were well used and the task was well completed. Please make persistent efforts.]
The little white fox felt annoyed. Those spells she had just performed wouldn’t have been used at all if she hadn’t been in a hurry. Such a weak spell that no one in the Qingqiu Mountain took seriously, but it was actually quite useful to humans. She suddenly understood why the Heavenly Dao should restrain demons and monsters. Human beings can’t cultivate and are too fragile. If demons and monsters came out, wouldn’t the human world fall into chaos?
She picked up a ham sausage again, and asked silently in her heart, [I’ve done one task, so it’s time to tell me what kind of world this is. I’m here to collect wishes. I have to know what’s going on so I can try to help, don’t I? Like just now, I suspect you’re messing with me.]
[Host is overthinking, I will only help you integrate into the world as quickly as possible, and will not fool you. Now, I will tell you a brief overview of the world. Please make good use of your advantages to collect more wishes.]
The little white fox lay on top of Zhuo Feng, eating her ham sausage while getting an overview of the world. It turns out that Zhuo Yichen was the hero of this world, and the Fu Xueqing he mentioned, was the heroine of this world. They were from two of the wealthiest families in town. They grew up together as childhood sweethearts, and their friends and classmates treated them as a couple, just not publicly.
One time they played Truth or Dare with their friends, and Fu Xueqing chose Dare when she lost, so her friends coaxed her to confess her feelings to a boy. In fact, everyone deliberately teased them, and Zhuo Yichen also laughed and made trouble with everyone, which made Fu Xueqing shy and awkward and refused to speak. It so happened that, at that time, when Zhu Feng passed by, Fu Xueqing ran to confess her feelings to Zhuo Feng in the heat of the moment, not knowing how much disaster it would bring to Zhuo Feng.
At that time, Zhuo Feng refused without hesitation. Fu Xueqing couldn’t lose face, so she simply went home and stopped playing. Zhuo Yichen, who was left alone to face everyone’s sneaking glances, was embarrassed, angry and humiliated, and he outright hated Zhuo Feng. A few of his lackeys came up with an idea to help him deal with Zhuo Feng, and not only brutalize the stray dogs he fed in front of Zhuo Feng, but also severely beat him up.
The two of them started tit-for-tat at that point. Fu Xueqing also blamed herself for having a big fight with Zhuo Yichen, which made Zhuo Yichen even more angry and vented his anger on Zhuo Feng. Zhuo Feng fought with a young master and was quickly kicked out of the orphanage and expelled from school. He was in the third year of high school, and he was the first in the whole grade, so he missed the opportunity for the college entrance examinations.
Knowing that he couldn’t deal with Zhuo Yichen, he had to find a way to stay dormant, waiting for the time to avenge those stray dogs and himself. But then something happened to Fu Xueqing’s family, she suddenly changed from a noble lady to a poor girl. She felt unworthy of Zhuo Yichen, so she said that she despised him. It so happened that she met Zhuo Feng again. Her guilt and remorse made her want to compensate by staying beside Zhuo Feng. He couldn’t get rid of her, so much so that Zhuo Yichen once again treated Zhuo Feng as a rival and didn’t let Zhuo Feng get a chance to build up his strength.
Time and time again, in the entangled love between the hero and heroine, Zhuo Feng unfortunately became their stepping stone. He was even accidentally pushed to the road in a quarrel, and his legs were broken! From then on, all the goodness in his heart faded, leaving only endless darkness. He left his hometown, worked hard, suffered unimaginable hardships, and finally became the ‘behind-the-scenes’ boss of a big company 10 years later. He began to attack Zhuo Yichen’s family’s company.
By the time he bankrupted the Zhuo family, his body couldn’t hold up after years of hard work. Yet, he found out the secret of his origins before he died. Unfortunately, this time he had no time to take revenge and could only die with reluctance. Thus, he became the most innocent cannon fodder in the hearts of the readers, who left comments wishing Zhuo Feng to be happy and have a better life.
After eating the ham sausage, the little white fox wiped her mouth with her clean paws, and yawned in Zhuo Feng’s arms, then closed her eyes. She must save her strength to protect Zhuo Feng. With her here, she would never let Zhuo Feng be bullied by those bastards!
