The senior policeman laughed even more heartily when he heard that. He said to Fangzheng, “Master, it’s best this disciple of yours watches less television in the future. He’s obsessed.”
Fangzheng smiled without a word. The world was just so miraculous. While no one believed others when they spoke the truth, they instead believed the lies. People often liked to use their preconceived notions to determine certain matters they had never done any investigations or research on. However, it was beneficial to Fangzheng for it saved him a great deal of trouble.
As the few of them were speaking, a woman with long hair dressed in a white top and jeans rushed in. The moment she entered, her eyes landed on the chair where Ma Guifen was sitting, sleepy from exhaustion. Ma Guifen was leaning there with her eyes closed as she had a short nap. A tiny blanket from Officer Chang was draped over her, and the color in her face looked better, but it was still rather terrible.
Upon seeing Ma Guifen, the woman immediately cried as she subconsciously cried out, “Mom…”
This cry was like the devil’s beckoning. It wasn’t loud, but it was enough to jolt the sleeping Ma Guifen awake. Upon seeing the woman, Ma Guifen’s hands trembled. The basket she had been carrying like a treasure fell to the ground!
“The eggs!” Ma Guifen cried out.
At that moment, a fair hand extended over and gently caught the basket of eggs. All the eggs inside were completely fine.
Upon seeing this scene, Ma Guifen heaved a sigh of relief.
As for Ma Guifen’s daughter, Deng Xiao, she didn’t care about the eggs. Instead, she ran over and held Ma Guifen’s hands in concern. “Mom, why are you here? Why didn’t you inform me ahead of time that you were coming? I could have come get you. Why are you so wet?”
When Ma Guifen looked at the woman in front of her, her pale face beamed as she looked happily at her daughter, as if she was looking at the most precious treasure in the world. Regardless of what Deng Xiao said, she listened quietly, as though she possessed the world and everything in it at that very moment.
“Oh my, I’m sorry. Officer, thank you, and sorry for troubling all of you.” Seeing that Ma Guifen was fine, Deng Xiao hurriedly thanked Officer Chang and company.
Officer Chang shook his head and said, “There’s no need for that. It’s just part of the job. To find you, your mother went out into the rain to ask around and caught a cold as a result. Quickly go home. Drink hot water, have a hot bath, and get some rest.”
Deng Xiao nodded immediately as she pulled Ma Guifen along.
However, Ma Guifen released herself from Deng Xiao’s grip and said to Fangzheng, “Master, thank you.”
Fangzheng smiled and pressed his palms together. “Amitabha. Patron, you’re welcome.”
Deng Xiao looked suspiciously at Fangzheng and after Ma Guifen informed her of what Fangzheng had done, Deng Xiao was taken aback. She never expected such a monk to exist in this world.
“Master, thank you for taking care of my mom,” thanked Deng Xiao.
Fangzheng shook his head.
At that moment, Ma Guifen tugged at Deng Xiao and whispered. “Master doesn’t have any money. He accompanied me the entire night and might not have even eaten…”
Deng Xiao immediately understood what was on Ma Guifen’s mind. She smiled and offered. “Master, if you don’t mind, why don’t you come to my place?”
Red Boy’s eyes lit up when he heard that as he subconsciously asked, “Will there be food?”
He had eaten rather simply for lunch, and he had spent the entire afternoon walking around with Ma Guifen. By the time they were about to eat dinner, Officer Chang had come. Officer Chang had offered to buy them some food to eat, but Ma Guifen’s mind was on Deng Xiao, so she had no intention to go anywhere. When Officer Chang thought of ordering food, Ma Guifen stopped him, and she said that since he had helped her tremendously already, she couldn’t bring herself to accept being treated to a meal by him.
Helpless, Officer Chang could only give up.
Ma Guifen didn’t wish to trouble others, but this made the duo suffer from hunger and hope to scrounge a meal. Red Boy was especially anxious about this. At this moment, he felt even more acutely why Lone Wolf refused to go down the mountain with Fangzheng. Every time they went down, it meant starving at least once! He was seriously suspecting the monk might have deliberately not brought any money. This darn baldy was just too stingy!
Upon hearing that, Deng Xiao looked at the adorable Red Boy and smiled. “Of course. You’ll be given as much as you want!”
At that moment, the senior policeman chuckled. “Ma’am Deng, you have to be careful. He’s the son of the Bull Demon King. He has a big appetite!”
The moment that was said, everyone who had heard the previous conversation laughed out loud. Only Fangzheng and Red Boy shook their heads in exasperation. Why didn’t anyone believe the truth? Man!
Finally, the two left with Deng Xiao. Deng Xiao drove a tiny Geely-branded car. She seemed to be living quite alright, especially compared to her mother… Red Boy smacked his lips, but he ultimately didn’t say a word.
And after Ma Guifen and Deng Xiao met each other, they began chatting ceaselessly. Clearly, both of them were very happy. However it was Ma Guifen who was speaking most of the time. This was because Ma Guifen didn’t understand anything Deng Xiao had to say, so the latter stopped talking and just listened, occasionally answering her mother.
While they were happy, there were others who were even happier.
“Hubby, let me tell you something.” In the convenience store, a woman was holding a phone in excitement.
“What’s the matter? Are you hungry? What do you want to eat? I’ll buy it for you immediately…” The voice on the other end of the line was very warm. Clearly, it was a very considerate and loving man.
“No, my… My face seems… Seems to be okay already!” the female boss said in excitement.
“Okay? You’ve recovered!? Really!? Wait for me!” The voice on the other end of the line sounded even more excited as the man whooped in delight. Soon after, there was the sound of a motorcycle revving.
A few minutes later, a man jumped off a motorcycle and rushed into the convenience store. He then stood rooted to his spot and stared at the woman smiling with tears in front of him. They exchanged gazes. There was no need to say a word. The expression on her face was enough to say everything. The man laughed in a silly manner. “Dear, you are really beautiful… Want to make babies tonight?”
“Rascal! Do you know what you are saying?” Just as she was about to agree, two people rushed in. One of them was dressed in a traffic police uniform, and the man leading the way was roaring angrily.
The husband was taken aback as he hurriedly said, “Officer, let me explain.”
“No need for that. I don’t want to hear it. Keep it for when we’re at the station! Also, open your mouth. I need to test if you were driving under influence…” The traffic policeman pulled him out and despite negatively testing for DUI, he still wasn’t appeased. With the commotion, people from the neighboring stores came out. When they saw the female boss recover from her facial paralysis, all of them were overjoyed. They began explaining to the traffic police, who realized that the couple were good people. The man hadn’t drunk, and the woman had already been suffering from facial paralysis for years. For her to suddenly recover, the man had sped due to his excitement…
With everything explained, the policeman just pulled the man into his car and berated him for ten minutes before letting him off.
“Teacher, are you letting him off just like that? Shouldn’t you fine him or impound his motorcycle?” a junior traffic policeman asked.
The senior traffic policeman rolled his eyes at him. “It was already made clear in the governmental policy that we should act on the law as humanely as possible! This person wasn’t drinking, nor was he on drugs. He doesn’t cause danger to society. Besides, something joyous had really just happened to him. Anyone would have sped.”
“Teacher, would you have sped too?” the junior policeman asked subconsciously.
“Ahem. Do you remember everything I taught you today? Repeat it to me.”
