Chapter 1171: I Feel Like I’m Cheating
Translator: CKtalon Editor: CKtalon
The boy’s name was Ding Mu.
“Ding Mu? That’s a nice name, just second to This Penniless Monk’s name. Hehe.” Fangzheng smiled shamelessly as he took out his ident.i.ty card. He realized that there was a piece of paper on the back of his ident.i.ty card!
When Fangzheng looked at it, he instantly broke out in a cold sweat.
It was a picture of Ding Mu and a girl! In the photo, the girl was leaning into Ding Mu’s embrace, smiling brilliantly. In the picture, Ding Mu was tightly hugging the girl as he laughed foolishly.
On the back of the photo were two names, and in the middle was a huge heart. Ding Mu’s name was on the left, and on the right was written “Tian Xin.”
However, at that moment, Fangzheng couldn’t laugh. He wanted to cry! This… The plot was a little too stimulating.
“System, is this revenge? This is clearly revenge! Are you trying to use lightning to strike me to death?” Fangzheng shouted inwardly.
The System said, “It would be quite troublesome if I really wanted to kill you. Besides, this mission was given to you by the Formless Door, not by me. It’s randomly selected, so what has it got to do with me?”
Fangzheng said, “But what about this girlfriend? If This Penniless Monk replaces Ding Mu, must he also hug his girlfriend?”
“Sure,” the System answered matter-of-factly.
Fangzheng was taken aback as he felt a little surprised and excited. He asked in the kind of excitement one might have before committing a small crime, “Really?”
Fangzheng felt his blood pump faster, but he knew the System’s style very well. It was normal for it to take long pauses! Therefore, Fangzheng still asked, “Are you still inhaling?”
The System said matter-of-factly, “Of course!”
The System continued. “Just like you can freely hug her, I can freely strike you with lightning.”
Fangzheng thought to himself, “Pfft! What a scam!”
At the same time, Fangzheng asked the System, “Then what if the girl throws herself at me?”
The System said, “This is the difficult part of the mission. You can’t violate the rules, but you still have to complete the mission.”
“What about the reward? Will it double if I do?” asked Fangzheng.
The System said, “Of course!”
“Really?” Although it was difficult, if the rewards were doubled, it was worth giving it a try! Fangzheng was a little excited again.
However, the System said after a long pause, “Of course not!”
Since the System was so unreliable, Fangzheng did not count on it anymore. He began to think about how he could resolve the problem if something happened to him.
Just as Fangzheng was thinking, he saw a girl slowly walking over with a small bag in hand. The girl was wearing a mask, so he had no idea who she was.
However, there was someone behind the girl who stood out. This person looked suspicious and fishy as he stole surrept.i.tious glances at the bag in the girl’s hand while following her.
In front of the girl was a stray dog who was sprawled on the ground with its tail flicking about. It had a steamed bun in its mouth, and it ate it while happily basking in the sun.
At that moment, the suspicious-looking man suddenly sped up and rushed forward. He grabbed the girl’s bag and pushed her. The girl fell to the ground in alarm, but she refused to let go of the bag in her hand.
The man pulled hard as he cursed. “F*cking let go! Otherwise, I’ll kill you!”
When Fangzheng saw this, how could he just sit idle? Robbery in broad daylight? Did the robber really think he was a mere decoration?
Just as Fangzheng was about to take action, he suddenly heard a dog bark. “Woof! Woof! Woof!”
Almost at the same time, the stray dog, who was eating a bun, barked as it charged at the suspicious-looking man. The man was shocked and subconsciously released his grip and retreated.
The stray dog ran right in between the girl and the man. When the man saw that it was a stray dog, he wanted to step forward, but the dog bared its fangs, looking like it would bite him to death if he dared approach!
The man was shocked by the small stray dog’s ferociousness and turned to run.
At that moment, two men ran out of the mall and held the suspicious-looking man back. At the same time, they shouted. “Catch the robber!”
Pa.s.sersby also rushed forward and pinned the robber to the ground before sending him away.
All of this happened very quickly. Perhaps the robber had not expected that his sneak attack would fail so quickly. Along the way, he was even delayed by a dog and ended up failing.
By the time Fangzheng ran over, the man was already captured, so it naturally had nothing to do with him.
The stray dog seemed to think that everything was fine. With the remaining half of the bun in its mouth, it ran off.
When Fangzheng saw this, he wanted to chase after it. He really wanted to acquaint himself with such a manly and good dog.
At that moment, the girl who had been attacked grabbed Fangzheng’s arm and said angrily, “You idiot, why are you only here now? I nearly got robbed!”
When Fangzheng heard that, he felt gooseb.u.mps all over his body. His worst fears had been realized! It seemed like he had met the devil.
When Fangzheng thought of what was ahead of him, his scalp tingled.
Having never been in a relations.h.i.+p and not having interacted much with the opposite s.e.x, he instantly became exasperated. He didn’t know what to do. Should he turn back and say something nice? Or should he just run away? Or should he not say anything and kiss her first?
The scene of the teen idol drama he watched when he was young flashed in his mind…
“I was given such a fright…” the girl said with a sobbing tone as she moved closer to Fangzheng.
Fangzheng felt his muscles tense up. He subconsciously glanced at the sky and saw a dark cloud appear in the clear sky.
The dark cloud wasn’t large, but Fangzheng knew that the lightning produced by this thing would be sufficient for him. His mind instantly became clearer.
Hence, Fangzheng reflexively jumped back and said, “I can’t just let this pa.s.s. How dare he do that to you? I’ll teach him a lesson!”
With that said, Fangzheng was about to chase after the robber when she grabbed Fangzheng and said, “That’s enough. Don’t go. It’s quite dangerous. Besides, he’s been captured, so just leave it to the police to handle.”
Fangzheng realized that his plan to chase after the criminal had failed, so he immediately said, “If it wasn’t for that dog, that guy would have succeeded. I have to thank that dog. Wait here.”
When the girl heard that, she didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “That dog is indeed a good dog, but it’s already gone. Where are you going to find it? If you really want to, we can find it together.”
Fangzheng’s plan was very simple. If they didn’t hug or get intimate, he could do anything as long as he could divert her attention.
Hence, Fangzheng immediately said, “Alright, let’s find it. It’s a stray dog. A heroic dog like that can’t just be left wandering the streets.”
The girl wrinkled her nose and said, “Of course. Unfortunately, I’m allergic to dogs. Otherwise, I would have adopted it.”
