The Protective Overbearing Demon - Chapter 4
The little white fox was lying in Zhuo Feng’s arms, and the warm body temperature made her sleepy and confused. Suddenly there was a loud rumble in her ear. She looked strangely at Zhuo Feng’s stomach, and then looked up at Zhuo Feng.
Zhuo Feng rubbed his belly and blushed for no reason. Obviously, there was nothing to be concerned about in front of a puppy, but for some reason, he was embarrassed at the sight of the little one.
He coughed twice, put the little white fox on the ground to the side, and got up. “It’s getting late. I should go back.” He picked up his schoolbag and bent down to touch the top of the little white fox’s head. He smiled, “You stay here, and I’ll bring you food tomorrow morning. Be careful to avoid people.”
The little white fox barked twice, it sounded like a spoiled child. What she actually said was, [Take me away, take me in your bag. I’m a good girl, and no one will find out.]
But apparently, they weren’t communicating on the same frequency, so Zhuo Feng touched the top of her head again and strode off. The little white fox chased him to the door and kicked a pebble unhappily. [He actually left me here. Everyone said that I was the cutest little fox in the clan, and everyone loved me. It turned out to be a lie! Come on, 001, come out, clean me quickly, this stinky smell is almost making me vomit!]
[Host, allow me to remind you that you just had a huge appetite when you were eating, which shows that you have a high acceptance for filth. Now, using the full body cleansing on the host once.]
The little white fox ran back to the illuminated corner of the house, and soon felt a faint aura surrounding her body. When she looked again, she was all white, except for a little red water drop mark on her eyebrow, which made her look cute and jaded. The little white fox happily bounced around in place, ignoring the system’s groaning, and cleared a spot with water and wind spells to lie down and rest.
She closed her eyes lazily, thinking that her experience today was also very colorful. From seeing the Ancestor Daji go through tribulation, to getting the chance to be sent to the illusionary human world, to wisely fighting the bad guys and saving the scholar, who she has to protect. It felt very exhausting to even think of, so he had to have a good night’s sleep.
What will that scholar, Zhuo Feng, bring her to eat tomorrow morning? She just ate a little and feeling hungry now.
Just as the little white fox was about to fall asleep, the system suddenly made noise again. [System release task: Resolve the humiliation and trouble that Zhuo Feng encountered in the orphanage. Reward: After the task is completed, you will get the most delicious roast chicken in the world; Punishment: After the mission fails, you will be forced to starve for three days.]
She can bear anything, but she can’t bear hunger!
The little white fox suddenly jumped up and ran quickly towards the orphanage. It was already dark, and everyone went home to eat and rest. She was just a tiny little fur ball that didn’t attract anyone’s attention in the slightest. When she arrived at the orphanage, she jumped on the wall and sniffed around. While avoiding people and slowly following Zhuo Feng’s scent. She found him!
When she found him, Zhuo Feng was standing against the wall in the dean’s office, listening to the reprimand of the female headmaster.
“What else do you have to say? You said you didn’t get those wounds from a fight, but what about just now? I just saw you fighting with your next-door dorm-neighbor with my own eyes, do you still remember the rules of the institute?”
Zhuo Feng raised his right hand to let her see the steamed bread in his hand, and tried to explain, “Headmistress, I didn’t fight with them, but they wanted to take my dinner, so I pushed them a few times.”
The Headmistress patted the ruler on the table and shouted, “You mean I misunderstood you? Seeing is believing. Do you think I would believe your devious argument over my own eyes?”
Zhuo Feng pursed his lips and didn’t say anything else, apparently looking like he was admitting to the scolding and punishment. Outside the window, the little white fox stuck out her head, wondering how to help Zhuo Feng unnoticed.
At this moment, she suddenly saw the Headmistress stand up and walk to Zhuo Feng, then pinched his chin and said vaguely, “In fact, I am still willing to believe you. You know I have always appreciated you very much, and I am particularly optimistic about your future development. Why don’t you come to my room with me and explain it to me properly? If you say it well, I’ll spare you the punishment, okay? By the way, in the past two days, the institute has received another grant. If you meet the requirements, I can pick you as a financial aid recipient, so that your high school and university tuition fees would be settled. What do you think?”
The little white fox couldn’t help but ask, [001, what does she mean? Why do I feel like this is all wrong? Look at the scholar’s face, all humiliated!]
Zhuo Feng tilted his head, took a step back to distance himself from the female dean, and answered with a straight face, “Thank you for your kindness. If the Headmistress thinks I’m wrong, I’m willing to be punished.”
“You! So ungrateful!” The Headmistress became angry from embarrassment. “Fine, you’re fighting, lying, and arguing, I’ll show the whole institution how stubborn you are!”
The system replied slowly: [According to the analysis in the comment area, the Headmistress was inviting Zhuo Feng to have ‘further relations’. In the fox clan this behavior should be called — solicitation.]
The little white fox instantly widened her eyes and shouted aloud in her heart, [solicitation?!!! She is an old and ugly woman who wants to get her hands on the scholar? That’s too much! Still dare to threaten the scholar, I must teach her a lesson!]
The little white fox didn’t wait for the Headmistress to say more, using earth spell to control the soil in a pot of flowers on the wall cabinet, and moving it, the five or six-pound pot of flowers fell straight down towards the Headmistress, hitting her head with a bang!
The Headmistress screamed and reached out to cover the smashed area. But she touched a handful of blood, and was terrified, screaming non-stop: “Call an ambulance! Get me to the hospital, there’s so much blood!”
The little white fox giggled and raised her head proudly. In fact, she used the wind spell to hold the flowerpot a bit, and it didn’t hurt the Headmistress too badly. At most, the flowerpot that was smashed cause a cut, which looked bloody but was actually just a flesh wound. Treat people with equal respect, she’s still very much on point in that regard.
A few minutes later, Zhuo Feng had called for an ambulance and also used the gauze from the medical kit to briefly bandage the Headmistress. Seeing the frightened figure of the Headmistress entering the ambulance, he found that he felt a bit happy in his heart. It was not the first time that the Headmistress harassed him. Since he was 16 years old, she had hinted these things to him from time to time. Because he repeatedly refused, the Headmistress also cut off his tuition fees, so he had to work odd jobs here and there to be able to afford high school.
This time the Headmistress was struck by a pot and forgot all about threatening him and punishing him, it was really a good thing, He was deeply relieved in his heart. Maybe this was the Headmistress’s retribution. In the end, God had eyes after all.
Zhuo Feng quirked his lips and walked to the dormitory with ease. As he approached the door, he was stopped by someone from the dormitory next door, mocking and saying, “Look, everyone, our first-year genius is still holding a steamed bun that rolled on the ground. Zhuo Feng, are you going to go back and eat it? No wonder you like to feed stray dogs. You’re obviously one of their kind! Hahaha!”
Many people laughed along with him, they grew up in the same orphanage, and they also endure the outside world’s negative attention. It so happened that Zhuo Feng was excellent in all aspects, not only being the first in grade every time, but also taking part in large and small competitions to win the championship prize, and even his appearance was several times better than them. He is the kind of person that teachers and classmates like. If not for the fact that he was busy working part-time and didn’t have time to develop relationships, he would have already been one of the most popular person in school. They’re constantly seeing Zhuo Feng above them, how can they be happy?
Therefore, seeing Zhuo Feng degraded to dust in punishment, was their favorite thing. What could be more satisfying than that?
Zhuo Feng wanted to peel off the dirty skin on the outside of the steamed bun to eat. After all, he hadn’t eaten since noon. The growing boy was really hungry after he stayed up until now, so he couldn’t care so much, but it didn’t mean he was willing to be made fun of. He lowered his face and looked at the opposite person. He said coldly, “The Headmistress had an accident, but your laughing happily here. What’s your problem with the Headmistress? You’re not gloating in your heart, are you?”
The guy’s face changed, “You! You’re talking nonsense!”
He was suddenly being preached to, it made him so anxious that he didn’t know how to defend himself. When he saw the Headmistress get into the ambulance with blood on her head, he couldn’t mention how happy he was. The biggest reason why he resented Zhuo Feng was because the Headmistress came to him after being rejected by Zhuo Feng.
He doesn’t have any backbone like Zhuo Feng. He can’t live without the support of the orphanage, and didn’t dare to offend the Headmistress, so he was taken advantage of by the Headmistress from when he was 17 years old. If the Headmistress was beautiful, that’s fine, this kind of thing is not much of a disadvantage for men. But, the female dean was ugly and fat, and he was forced to endure nausea every time he goes. He couldn’t take revenge on the Headmistress, he could only vent his hatred towards Zhuo Feng. If it weren’t for Zhuo Feng’s refusal, how could he suffer such insults?
(TNote: well… the paragraph above is just so wrong in so many ways I wanna curse…)
Now that Zhuo Feng was still picking on him in public, he didn’t even dare to think about what the Headmistress would use to punish him when she returned, pointing at him angrily, “You’re accusing me unjustly! I’ll kill you, you sinister villain!”
Zhuo Feng frowned, pushed him aside, and snorted coldly. “You want to start a fight in the institution, I don’t. The Headmistress went to the hospital. I’m not interested in causing trouble. Get out of the way!”
Although they were happy to see Zhuo Feng’s bad luck, they had already witnessed Zhuo Feng’s fierce fights, no one was willing to start against him. Then again, the Headmistress was injured, and they would surely be punished twice as much for causing trouble at this point, so they might as well just forget it.
The crowd dispersed, Zhuo Feng went back to his dormitory without looking at others, and closed the door in front of them.
The little white fox cocked her head around the corner. She couldn’t help but grimace her teeth when she saw the guy talking to his brothers about tricking Zhuo Feng to come out and beating him up. There were people in this world who were as warm and gentle as the scholar, but there were also many people who were annoying and hates as much as this one. Since they like fighting so much, let them fight on their own!
