1437 The Baldy Who Eats Alone
But the price of rejecting the offer was having the two of them go hungry!
Hence, Red Boy exclaimed, "Thank you, Boss!"
Fangzheng was taken aback as he looked at Red Boy before looking at the boss…
The boss looked at the two of them and seemed to understand something. He chuckled and said, "Hehe, young monk, you sure are smart. Alright… sit inside. What do you want to eat?"
Fangzheng could only press his palms together in thanks when he saw this. "Thank you, Patron. Just a bowl of white rice and a bowl of water will do."
"Uh…" The boss was clearly stunned.
Little Rong said, "How can you eat that? Boss, you've given all the beggars that came previously a meat dish and a vegetarian dish. Master has helped us."
"Go, go, go. Go to the side. It's not bad that I'm not deducting your salary for you slacking off. How dare you teach me what to do? Tell the kitchen to make two vegetarian dishes. I'll chat with the master." The boss chased Little Rong away.
After Little Rong left, food was served shortly. The boss sat across from Fangzheng and said with a chuckle, "Master, don't stand on ceremony. You should eat. It's my treat."
Fangzheng thanked him once again before eating with Red Boy.
After eating for a while, the boss licked his lips and came over. "Master, can I ask you a question. How… what's your usual schedule?"
Fangzheng thought for a moment and said, "Normally, This Penniless Monk will wake up before the sun rises. Then, breakfast, reading, chanting the scriptures… Have lunch… Have dinner… There's nothing special."
The boss noted it down and asked, "Is there any special way to keep in good health?"
Red Boy smiled when he saw this. "Yes, my master sleeps late. He doesn't sleep until midnight every day."
The boss said in surprise, "Sleeping late into the night…"
The boss sat there, looking puzzled.
At that moment, Little Rong returned and sat down. He chuckled and asked, "Master, how old are you? If I were to look like you at your age, just having your strength… would be great."
Fangzheng looked at Red Boy. Red Boy held back his laughter as he lowered his head without saying a word.
Fangzheng couldn't lie, so he said lightly, "21 this year."
"Oh, 21… Uh… Ah?" Little Rong was confused.
"Pfft!" The boss spat water on Little Rong's face.
The two of them looked at each other, speechless.
Until Fangzheng and Red Boy finished eating, the two of them were still in a daze…
After holding it in for a long time, the boss took out his phone to look at the time and said, "It's already 8:30 PM. I can't take it anymore. I have to go to bed first. Little Rong, you man the shop…"
"Boss, it's only 8.30…" Little Rong was stunned.
The boss said, "Sleeping and getting up early is good for the health."
Then, the boss walked towards the door.
At that moment, Fangzheng frowned and looked up. "Amitabha. Patron, stay where you are. Wait ten seconds."
"What do you mean?" The boss was taken aback. He did not understand what Fangzheng meant but stood rooted to the ground.
Fangzheng slowly got up and walked towards the boss. As he walked, he smiled and said, "Three, two, one…"
Before the boss could complain, there was a loud bang!
The sound of an engine followed by the sound of walls cracking boomed. Then, the boss watched in horror as a car tore through the wall!
"Ah! Help…" The boss screamed subconsciously.
However, the car stopped less than three centimeters in front of him!
He could even feel the heat from the engine!
However, the car eventually stopped…
At that instant, the store owner's legs went limp as he collapsed to the ground.
As for Fangzheng, he walked past him with Red Boy. He grabbed the deformed door with one hand and pulled it with all his might. With a loud thud, the metal door was forcefully pulled off. Then, Fangzheng carried the driver who had fainted inside and placed him on the ground.
Then, Fangzheng walked out of the store and grabbed the car with one hand. He pulled it out with all his might. Everyone watched in a daze as the car was dragged out by Fangzheng and placed in an empty spot!
By the time everyone returned to their senses, the monk had vanished!
"Where is he?" The boss came back to his senses and hurriedly got up.
Little Rong subconsciously shook his head. "He's gone…"
"Where did he go?" the boss asked.
Little Rong shook his head and said, "I didn't notice."
The boss hurriedly ran out and looked around. However, he failed to see Fangzheng and Red Boy's figures. He immediately pounded his chest and stomped his feet. "What a waste… Why did my savior leave just like that? Sigh…"
"Master, did you go there because you foresaw the disaster?" asked Red Boy.
Fangzheng shook his head and said, "It's not like I'm always using the Heavenly Eye. It's really a coincidence. After eating, I opened my Heavenly Eye and swept them to see if I can repay the debt of gratitude for the meal. In the end… not bad. I saved three people at once. I made a killing."
"Uh…" Red Boy was rendered speechless.
"System, let's do the draw," Fangzheng said inwardly.
"Helping the people in the Spring Village regain their confidence and order is boundless merit. You are rewarded with one chance at the draw. You saved three lives, and will be rewarded with three chances at the draw. Do you want to combine them or do it separately?" asked the System.
"Separate. Crystal Rice, Buddha Vat, Frost Bamboo, A Golden Millet Dream."
"Are you sure?" asked the System.
Fangzheng nodded. "Yes!"
"Ding! Congratulations on obtaining one Crystal Rice seed, one Buddha Vat, one Frost Bamboo seed, and the divine power, A Golden Millet Dream. Do you wish to receive it now?"
Fangzheng said, "I'll take the divine power. Leave the rest to later."
With that said, Fangzheng patted Red Boy on the head. "Let's go. Let's return to One Finger Monastery first."
"Alright!" Red Boy received the order and flew into the sky with Fangzheng.
Before long, the two returned to Mt. One Finger. When they landed, Fangzheng scattered the Frost Bamboo seed in the backyard. Following that, he controlled the Frost Bamboo to rapidly grow. It formed a bamboo forest in One Finger Monastery's backyard, but it did not grow down the mountain.
Following that, Fangzheng took a flower pot and dug some soil into it, planting the Crystal Rice seed…
At that moment, Monkey, Lone Wolf, Squirrel, Red Boy, and Salted Fish all came over. They stared at the flower pot with bloodshot eyes as though they were about to swallow it whole!
"Slurp…" Squirrel sucked back the saliva that hung from his mouth and said, "Master, how long will it take to grow? I'm dying of my cravings…"
Monkey sighed. "In the past, I found it monotonous. I only realized how Crystal Rice is most delicious only when it is gone…"
"That's right. Master, can this grain of rice be eaten?" The huge Lone Wolf sat there and asked worriedly.
Fangzheng looked at the starving disciples and shook his head. "Don't worry. It's enough. Since I'm the only one eating it, I can eat it for quite a few meals."
"Oh, if it's enough, then… Uh… Master!" Squirrel subconsciously replied. He realized that Fangzheng's words weren't right! What did he mean by the only one eating and how he could eat it for a few meals? This guy had no intention of sharing the food with them at all!
