All of a sudden, Su Chan was swept over by the tide of plastic bags. Though she quickly struggled to stand up, her 1.65 meter tall body was suddenly swamped by the small plastic bags in the room, leaving only half of her body exposed. She stared at the plastic bags underneath herself with a stunned expression and casually picked one of them up. There were a few words written on it: Fujian Tie Guanyin!
At this time, Li Yundong also found that his room was full of tea bags. He was stunned and asked, "What happened? Why are there so many tea bags here?"
Just as he was feeling puzzled, he suddenly heard the sound of keys in the door. Then, the door swung open. Ruan Hongling and Zi Yuan walked in, laden with big bags from the supermarket.
The two female disciples from the Linggong Sect were shocked to see that there were so many people in the room, especially so many female disciples from the Fox Zen School.
Ruan Hongling stared at them, momentarily frozen with shock. "What's going on?" she asked. She saw Li Yundong first and then saw that Su Chan was being drowned by Tie Guanyin Tea, and suddenly she couldn't stop herself from laughing.
Zi Yuan couldn't help but laugh when she saw Li Yundong and Su Chan standing amidst the sea of Tie Guanyin bags.
Ruan Hongling said to Li Yundong, "Hey, who allowed you to open the door? Don't you know how much effort my senior sister and I went to to pile up these tea bags?"
After hearing her words, Li Yundong didn't know whether to laugh or cry and simply said, "And why exactly did you pile them up in my room?"
Ruan Hongling laughed and said, "How dare you even ask! You demanded that we two girls come back and do these things while you were being leisurely in Dongwu City. We worked so hard to bring these tea bags from the first floor, and now you have the gall to be picky! You should know that..."
Before Ruan Hongling could finish complaining, Zi Yuan glared at her and shouted, "Hongling, don't be presumptuous towards the Leader of Fox Zen School!"
The meaning of Zi Yuan's words was very obvious. She was speaking to remind Ruan Hongling that Li Yundong was no longer a person who could be shouted at by her. He was the Leader of a sect now!
It was only then that Ruan Hongling came to her senses. She snorted resentfully and swallowed the words that she had been about to say.
Cao Yi was quick-witted and immediately realized what had happened. Walking forward and cupping her hands at Zi Yuan and Ruan Hongling, Cao Yi said, "Amitayus, I'm sorry to disturb Zhenren Zi Yuan and Zhenren Hong Ling."
Zi Yuan smiled slightly, cupped her hands, and replied, "Don't worry. There's no need to apologise."
When the rest of the people from the Fox Zen School saw Zi Yuan and Ruan Hongling enter, most of them stood up one after another and maintained a vigilant and distant attitude.
Zi Yuan knew that although she had participated in the previous siege of Fox Zen School, she had also secretly helped the Fox Zen Sect. She could be considered to be a benefactor of Fox Zen School to some extent.
However, the feud between the Fox Zen School and the Zhengyi School ran too deep. Furthermore, Yan Fang, who had almost caused Fox Zen School to be destroyed, was the second shibo of the Linggong Sect and had a close relationship with her. It would be a lie to say that there was no resentment in the hearts of the people in the Fox Zen School.
Being well aware of this, Zi Yuan did not care about their grudge and merely smiled gently at them before saying to Li Yundong, "Zhenren Li, can I have a word with you in private?"
Li Yundong nodded and said, "Okay, wait for me to put these tea bags back first."
After that, he used his Zhenqi and swept the tea bags back into the room like he was sweeping the floor, piling all of the bags up tightly. Su Chan, who was next to him, closed the door with a heavy thud. She then patted her chest and said with a lingering fear, "I was so scared! Were all the tea bags sent by Zheng Youming?"
Li Yundong threw up his hands. "Who else would it have been?"
Su Chan rolled her eyes and asked, "Where are you going to sleep tonight?"
Li Yundong said with a bitter smile, "I'll sleep in the living room with you."
At this time, Zi Yuan said, "Zhenren Li, if you don't mind, you can stay at our place for a night."
Li Yundong hesitated for a moment. "Would that be all right with you?"
Zi Yuan smiled and said, "Of course. But I have some questions for you first."
Li Yundong nodded and went to Su Chan's bedroom with Zi Yuan. After closing the door, he asked, "Is your question about why I brought all the disciples of Fox Zen School here?"
Seeing that Li Yundong was getting straight to the point, Zi Yuan was stunned. She had expected Li Yundong to avoid talking about this.
Seeing her expression, Li Yundong laughed and said, "I know you will be confused about this. Yes, the Fox Zen School is full of demons, and all of them are peerless beauties. It's usually enough to cause a stir when one steps out into the outside world. Not to mention there are so many of them now. So, you must have worries, and you think that I'm selfish to do this, don't you?"
Zi Yuan also laughed and ducked her head. "Amitayus, Zhenren Li, you're so frank. I'm the one who's being overly sensitive."
Li Yundong waved his hand and said, "If I were you, I would also have my doubts. However, I really have my own difficulties when it comes to bringing them down the mountain, so even if you don't ask me, I'll tell you later."
Zi Yuan asked curiously, "What? Is there anything that can stump you, our famous Zhenren Li?"
Li Yundong sighed and said, "Don't tease me. We're alone here. Considering our friendship, we don't have to be so polite." He then told Zi Yuan what had happened to him before, and said, "Such a tragedy happened in Fox Zen School, and even a secular mortal was killed. This matter is really a thorn in my heart making me uneasy."
Zi Yuan said in a low voice, "Do you mean that you suspect that there's a traitor hiding in Fox Zen School?"
Li Yundong said, "Exactly! Currently, the Fox Zen School is suffering through a turbulent period. The situation is extremely bad. Not only is our economic lifeline broken, but no one's future here can be guaranteed now. Furthermore, various other sects are still coveting the Fox Zen School. Yesterday, I also discovered a criminal who was peeking at the Heavenly Jindan Technique in the backroom. If the news that the Heavenly Jindan Technique is in Fox Zen School hands spreads, our Fox Zen School will have an even harder time."
"Now I don't know how many enemies are coveting us outside, and I also don't know if there is hidden traitor inside. If there is, who could it be? I took them all down the mountain so now everyone is together and it's convenient for us to monitor each other."
Zi Yuan nodded slightly, admiration filling her eyes. She asked, "Do the others in the Fox Zen School know about the hidden traitor in the sect?"
Li Yundong shook his head and said, "No, I only told you, Su Chan, and Zhou Qin about the traitor. I think if the others know about it, they will start to suspect each other, which will cause the whole sect to get distracted. At that time, I, the leader of the sect, will be nothing more than a figurehead."
Zi Yuan sighed lightly and looked at Li Yundong sympathetically. "It's not easy for you to be the leader."
Li Yundong chuckled and said, "I took office at a time of crisis. What's more, for the sake of Su Chan, I have to stick with it. I can't let her master be destroyed in my hands."
A thought flashed through Zi Yuan's mind. She gazed at Li Yundong and let out a long sigh. "You are indeed a man who possesses both love and righteousness."
Li Yundong waved his hand and said, "I think we may have to trouble you a lot in the future. After all, including Su Chan, there are eleven people in the Fox Zen School. Sometimes I can't handle all the things here at the same time very well. I have to find a house for them to live in tomorrow. Besides, we have to find a store as soon as possible and start it. Otherwise, we will finally run out of all our savings. Before long, the ¥800,000 will be down to ¥80."
Zi Yuan chuckled. "You're right. We do need to reduce our expenditure. If a group of cultivators starved to death from poverty, it would truly be the biggest joke in the history of cultivation."
Li Yundong laughed and said, "Well, I want to ask you for a favor tonight."
"What is it?" Zi Yuan asked in confusion.
Li Yundong said, "I want to make sure the two golden snake's bodies are still there."
Zi Yuan asked, "Why do you want to see their bodies?"
Li Yundong said in a low voice, "I'll tell you the reason at night. I can't give any answer until I've see them."
Zi Yuan smiled and changed the topic. "Well, since we have made things clear, now we should discuss a bigger problem."
Li Yundong asked, "What is that?"
Zi Yuan pointed to the door and said, "How can we feed so many people? Are we going out to eat, or at home?"
Li Yundong was stuck between two decisions. "There are so many people. If we go out to eat, I'm afraid that it will be too rowdy. We'd better eat at home."
Zi Yuan began to roll up her sleeves and said with a smile, "Then it's time to get started. Food for a dozen of people can't be made quickly."
Li Yundong laughed and said, "Fortunately, you are here. Otherwise, if I were alone, I would be in over my head."
Zi Yuan said, "Li Yundong, I don't want to criticize you, but you have to think of a way to get out of these things. Otherwise, you won't even have time to practice, and your cultivation will not advance at all. You should know that cultivation is like a boat sailing against the wind. It must forge ahead or it will only be driven back. If you don't improve yourself, someone may defeat you next time."
Li Yundong thought of the young man who had come to Blue Cave Sect to challenge him before, and his expression darkened. He said, "You are right. I need to solve the problem of food and clothing in the Fox Zen School as soon as possible in order to save time for cultivation."
Zi Yuan nodded and said nothing.
After they left, they directly went into the kitchen to get prepared. Ruan Hongling went in to help, while Su Chan was still being banned from entering the kitchen by Li Yundong, so she had to stay in the living room and watch TV. These little foxes were curiously circling the TV and chattering, but they quickly got tired after watching for a while. More and more people began to curiously gather around Su Chan and they asked her to tell them about the different kinds of things she had encountered in the secular world.
She was quite a crazy girl. When she found a group of people gathering around her, she decided to indulge them and talk about what she had done in the secular world. Because she had not left Li Yundong after coming to the secular world, the things she spoke about were all related to Li Yundong. Especially when she mentioned the experience of smashing the TV, which had made Li Yundong owe a heavy debt, and the time when they had been accompanying and depending on each other in that small room, her face showed a happy and sweet smile.
After hearing her stories, the little fox suddenly understood. "Oh, it turns out that only by getting the leader in debt will he take a fancy to you!"
The other foxes nodded at the same time, and then their eyes roamed their surroundings. They looked around the room to find something to destroy so that the leader would remember them. After looking left and right, they finally settled on the TV, and were all ready to move.
Su Chan was frightened and hurriedly stood in front of the TV like she was an old hen protecting her chick and said, "Hey, what do you want to do?"
The little foxes said jealously, "You caused trouble and it made the leader remember you. Why can't we do something to make him remember us?"
Su Chan was so anxious that her forehead started sweating. She said loudly, "It's very hard for Yundong to make money. Shouldn't we help him lighten the burden? Causing trouble at this time will only make him angry and hate you!"
Zhou Qin chuckled inwardly when she saw her reaction. However, she knew that she wasn't a member of Fox Zen School, so she didn't say anything and just stood by and watched them.
Su Chan's words made the foxes hesitate again. Cao Yi also scolded, "You b*stard, what do you think you're doing? Aren't you afraid that the leader will drive you back?"
It had not been easy for these little foxes to go down the mountain. After seeing such a colorful world, how could they be willing to go back? They shook their heads and gave up on the idea.
Su Chan patted her chest with lingering fear. "These guys almost tore down this home! These scamps are so naughty, I have to help Yundong keep an eye on them!"
At this moment, Li Yundong came out of the kitchen with a plate of dishes. It was a plate of shiny golden braised pork balls swimming in brown sauce. He shouted, "Girls, It's time to eat!"
He was actually quite good at cooking, and the food he made always tasted as good as it looked. With the help of Zi Yuan's, another 'professional chef', the completed dishes they made could not be called ordinary.
As soon as the dishes appeared, all of the Fox Zen School members' eyes were glued to them.
As the elder, Cao Yi could still maintain the basic decorum. She just thought to herself, "How can the leader so good at cooking? The food is really delicious. It seems that we will be well fed in the future."
However, the little foxes almost could not show such self-restraint. They watched Li Yundong put the dishes on the table and audibly swallowed their saliva. At first, they just managed to hold on, and when Li Yundong headed into the kitchen, they suddenly shouted and rushed over to the table like thieves. They didn't even use chopsticks but reached out to grab the food directly!
Su Chan was stunned and took a long time to react. She stomped her feet and said angrily, "B*stards, looting food is my move!" After that, she also rushed over and joined the fray.
