The Monk That Wanted To Renounce Asceticism Chapter 86


Chapter 86: Why would I listen to you?

"What do you mean split? Master, we are donating it! You are a person with true ability. This temple is too shabby in comparison to your abilities. This 500,000 is a donation for you to renovate the temple. Master, do you have an account number?" Monkey immediately interrupted Wu Changxi having had prior experience.

Once Fangzheng heard this, he was overjoyed. He did not want it if it was a split. However, it naturally could be taken if it was a donation. As for a bank account number, he did have one that could be used.

Fangzheng said, "Amitabha. Patrons, thank you for the donation."

"Master, it's almost noon. About lunch..." Fatty rubbed his belly as he said with a chuckle while licking his lips. His intentions were obvious. This fellow was eyeing Fangzheng's Crystal Rice!

Fangzheng smiled slightly and said calmly, "This temple is a small temple. It does not provide food and lodging. Patron, if you are hungry, quickly go down the mountain."

Fatty's smile immediately vanished. "Master, can't you give us something to eat? We at least filled up the water vat."

Fangzheng shook his head and said, "Water yes, meals no. The last time was because all of you were exhausted and had not had a meal an entire day. That was why you were given food in order to prevent you from fainting on the mountain. This time, please go down the mountain. If you want to have meals in the temple, wait until the temple is upgraded to a mid-range monastery. Food will be provided until you are satiated then."

A helpless Fatty looked at the small temple and asked, "Master, when would the temple be upgraded?"

Fangzheng shook his head slightly, "The upgrading of a temple depends on the incense offerings and the scale. From the present situation, I do not know either..."

Monkey patted Fatty on his shoulder and said, "If you want to eat, think of a way to help promote the temple."

Fatty realized that it was the only way after some thought. Just as he was about to bid farewell, he suddenly exclaimed, "Master, why aren't you wearing shoes?"

Fangzheng's White Lunar Monk Robe was very long and as a result of the snow, his feet would sink into the snow, so with the robe concealing it, it was almost impossible to tell that Fangzheng wasn't wearing shoes. Moreover, everyone was watching the competition, so who would look at his feet?

Upon hearing Fatty's shout, Monkey and Wu Changxi looked down. Although they could not see Fangzheng's feet, his footprints were extremely clear. It was a footprint without the outline of a shoe!

"Master, are you... practicing some powers?" Monkey asked in shock.

When Fangzheng heard this, he could not help but laugh bitterly in his heart, "What powers?" He was practicing the power to be poor! He had no shoes to wear and could only use the White Lunar Monk Robe's protective capabilities to pass his days on bare feet. Although it was still cold, it would not cause frostbite. It was better than wearing his crappy shoes. Once his feet lost the protection of the monk robes, they only suffered from the biting cold.

However, Fangzheng said, "Amitabha. This Penniless Monk has a powerful flame in him. This temperature is nothing much."

"I knew it. For a young lad to sleep on a cold bed, it has to depend on having a powerful flame in him! Heh! Master, are you feeling dry? Do you need me to get you a chick to calm your fiery flames? I know it's quite uncomfortable holding it in- Hey! Hey! He-"

Before Fatty finished speaking, Fangzheng turned around and lifted Fatty's 180kg mass up and threw him out of the door. Then, he gave a Buddhist proclamation, "Amitabha," and then there was a bang. The door had closed shut!

Fatty was dumbfounded. Monkey and Wu Changxi who had come out as well glared angrily at Fatty. Monkey did not have any restraint when it came to Fatty. "You stupid idiot. What did you just say? Master is an esteemed monk. How can you introduce a prostitute to him? Are your brains mush?"

Fatty rubbed his nose and said without any signs of penitence, "I was just taking Master's interests into consideration. Things like sexual desire are not something that can be easily given up. It's not good for the body."

"Not good? See if you will become good if I beat you up! Great, now we will never be able to enter the temple. You better pay me for the water!" Monkey jumped on Fatty's back and unleashed a barrage of attacks. Fatty pushed Monkey away and ran down the mountain wailing.

As the group went down the mountain noisily, Monkey smacked himself in the head. He forgot to get Fangzheng's bank account number!

However, Monkey was brilliant as well. He immediately opened WeChat and searched for people nearby. Indeed, he found Fangzheng's WeChat account and added him as a friend. He did not even transfer the money through the bank and instead transferred the money over WeChat Pay.

And at that moment, Fangzheng was feeling depressed.

"System, can't I vent this flame in me?" Fangzheng was precisely feeling a flame in his body. It was fine if no one mentioned it but with Fatty pointing it out, how could Fangzheng not be affected? However, despite being affected, he had the basic qualities of being a future master, especially when the System replied with a sudden, "Be careful of becoming impotent." Fangzheng had decisively thrown Fatty out.

"Yes!" The System replied very certainly.

Fangzheng immediately heaved a sigh of relief. He asked with a smile, "How can it be resolved?"

"Find a woman," replied the System.

"Really? That's allowed?" Fangzheng's eyes immediately lit up.

"If you are not afraid to be impotent the rest of your life, go ahead," said the System.

Fangzheng was immediately incensed, "Can't you finish your sentence at once? Will you die speaking without taking a breath?"

"No, but technique is required when communicating with idiots."

Fangzheng: "#@$%#...%&"

Fangzheng asked, "Is there really nothing I can do?"

"There is."

"Be serious. Can you give me a practical solution?" Fangzheng could no longer flare up after being teased by the System.

"Recite Buddhist scriptures and your mind will naturally turn peaceful," The System said in all seriousness.

Fangzheng pointed his middle-finger into the sky and shouted, "F*ck you!"

Ka-cha! Boom! Boom!

Two bolts of lightning landed in front of Fangzheng. Fangzheng said dissatisfied, "This finger gesture and words of mine were done together. It should have been counted as one, right?"

"It's two if I say so. If you aren't convinced, you can try cursing twice to try again."

Fangzheng shouted at the sky, "F*ck off!"

Ka-cha! Another bolt of lightning landed in front of him.

Then, Fangzheng flicked his sleeves and left!

"You are still short of one more," the System reminded him.

Fangzheng scoffed and said, "Do I have to curse twice just because you say so? Why must I listen to you?" Another time? He could only curse three times a day. The fourth bolt would land on him. Fangzheng wasn't dumb.

After returning to the backyard, Fangzheng took out his cell phone and played around with it. He realized that he had a friend request. Seeing that it was Monkey, he casually added him.

The moment he added, Monkey sent him 500,000! There was a note, "Master, account numbers are too complicated. I sent the money to you directly through WeChat! How is it? Am I awesome? The way I transfer funds is just so domineering. Haha..."

However, Fangzheng did not read the rest of the text. He was only staring at the zeroes that lined the back of the string of numbers! He counted each one with a finger, "One, two, three, four, five. Wow, how much money is five zeroes? He counted again. Ten, hundred, thousand, ten thousand, a hundred thousand... 500,000... Hahaha! System, I'm finally out of poverty. Hahaha, I can eat Crystal Rice every meal from now onwards!"

However, the System completely ignored him.

After he was done counting the money, Fangzheng replied Monkey, "Amitabha."
