Su Chan, Zi Yuan, and Zhou Qin returned home, which aroused the curiosity of all the people in the Fox Zen School. After understanding why they had returned, the little foxes all goggled at Zi Yuan and Zhou Qin with awe.
It turned out that Zhou Qin and Zi Yuan, who had been living with the foxes all the time, were a pair of wealthy ladies!
Kris asked Zi Yuan tentatively, "I have some money, too... But, I'm afraid that Master... that Li Yundong won't accept my money. Do you need it?"
Zhou Qin had always felt sympathy for Kris and had a good impression of her, so she intended to help and asked, "How much do you have?"
Kris thought for a moment, then uttered, "About three or four million."
Although Zhou Qin vaguely knew that Kirs was from a decent family, she didn't know that she had been raised in the lap of luxury. She said in surprise, "Kris, it seems that you are so rich! You can easily take out three to four million yuan at a time?"
Kris waved her hand anxiously and said, "Well, it’s in US dollars rather than pound sterling. Don't hold high expectations that it's a lot of wealth."
Well, it turned out that Kris herself thought it was such a small amount of money that it didn't even deserve being mentioned!
Zhou Qin cracked a wry smile immediately. She turned to Zi Yuan and said, "Well, compared with her, we are but peasants! She can take out more than 20 million yuan alone!"
Zi Yuan smiled slightly in response and said, "It's true that there's always someone richer than you. But... Kris is right. I believe it won't be difficult for her to take out such an amount of money. The difficulty lies in persuading Li Yundong to accept it and make him feel that Kris is not trying to please him."
Kris replied with an awkward smile, "I was afraid that Li Yundong would misunderstand, so I didn't dare to tell him. But, I still really want to give a hand."
Zi Yuan thought for a moment before saying, "We might as well take your money. We can't care about trifles at this critical juncture. Taking her money into an account, we'll probably have about 40 million yuan. It's not a small sum. Even if we cooperate with other schools, we can still hold on to a relatively large share and won't suffer a loss."
Cao Yi and Liu Yuehong of the Fox Zen School were listening attentively. Liu Yuehong quietly drew Cao Yi aside and whispered, "Hey, should we also take out some money?"
Cao Yi suddenly smiled bitterly and said, "We? Everyone knows that all the people in our Fox Zen School, from its leader to its new recruits, are impoverished people. Where could we get the money from?"
Liu Yuehong said in a hurry, "Don’t you remember Leader distributing the operating profits of Disanxian to us?"
Cao Yi said with a wry smile, "Sure, but it's too little."
"It's not about money, it's about our attitude."
Cao Yi thought about it seriously and nodded. "You're right!"
So Cao Yi went out and called all the little foxes into her room, saying, "You all heard just now. Even Zi Yuan, who is not a member of Fox Zen School, is willing to help us. As members of the Fox Zen School, shouldn't we do something?"
The little foxes were all clever and mischievous. When they heard this, they immediately realized the meaning of her words. They subconsciously covered their pockets and said in horror, "Aunt Cao Yi? You don't mean it, do you? You even want us to take our pocket money? It's peanuts!"
Cao Yi said angrily, "It's not about money, it’s about attitude!"
The little foxes looked sad and complained, "Cao Yi, please show mercy. We've already spent all our pocket money!"
"That's right. I only have a few coins in my pocket. Do you really want to take them away from me?"
"My money's all stuck in a bank somewhere and cannot be withdrawn until the due time! Cao Yi, I can't take it out willy-nilly!"
Cao Yi laughed angrily: "Run out of the money? All you eat and use are paid for by Leader of the school. Where you spend the money? How do you spend the money? Only coins! Coins are also needed! Give them to me! In deposit? Bastard, you are an unregistered citizen, you don’t even have an ID card. How can you deposit damn money? Where is your deposit book? Take it out and let me have a look?"
Looking at Cao Yi's "impartial and incorruptible face", the little foxes all adopted bitter expressions and handed over their funds one after another. Just as the last little fox handed over the last coin in her pocket with tears glittering in her eyes, they suddenly noticed something. "Hey, why hasn't Su Chan handed anything over?"
In an instant, almost all the little foxes looked at Su Chan in unison.
Seeing that everyone was looking at her, the girl rolled her eyes and said quickly, "I'm going to get the money right now!"
After rushing out of Cao Yi's room, Su Chan quickly headed into Ao Wushuang's room and began to rummage through the boxes and cabinets.
But after thoroughly rummaging through the room, she still couldn't find Ao Wushuang's private stash.
Disappointed, Su Chan immediately squatted beside the edge of the bed, holding her cheeks with both hands, and said with a forlorn expression, "How strange... where could it be?"
Feeling aggrieved, she suddenly heard a voice coming from outside. It was Ling Yue. "How odd. Where did Su Chan go?"
The other little foxes were also clamoring and twittering, "Could it be that she ran away?"
"No way! We've already handed over our money. Why hasn't she given hers?"
"Alas, after all, she is Leader’s favorite girl…”
Hearing this, Su Chan was so angry that her lips twitched and her face was full of displeasure. As she was about to go out and argue with them, she heard Ling Yue say in surprise, "Aunt, you're back?"
Su Chan was shocked. "Ah? Master is back?"
Although she hadn't stolen anything, she still had a guilty conscience, so she subconsciously used the Goddess Nayan Mudras to hide herself.
At this time, since Zi Yuan, Zhou Qin, and Kris were all busy counting the funds after returning to their own rooms, Ao Wushuang did not run into them. She just nodded to the foxes outside and went into her own room.
Su Chan looked confused after she saw Ao Wushuang entering the room. Su Chan sat on the bed alone, lost in thought.
Just as she was about to slip away quietly, she suddenly saw that Ao Wushuang was dangling a bag of Seven-Treasure Tips. Su Chan's eyes suddenly lit up, and she thought, "Oh right, Master keeps almost all her treasures in the bag, so she must also be keeping her private money in the bag!"
But... the bag of Seven-Treasure Tips was being held onto by her master. No matter how skillful she was at thievery, she would not be able to steal anything from her master!
The girl suddenly pulled a long face and frowned. She bit her red lips tightly with her teeth and darted her eyes around, trying to figure out a solution quickly.
No one knew how long it had been. As the girl was thinking through a method for the umpteenth time, Ao Wushuang sighed softly, then stood up graciously and went to the bathroom adjacent to the bedroom, turning on the taps to run a hot bath.
Su Chan's eyes suddenly lit up. She said happily, "Ah, master is going to take a bath. What a good opportunity!"
Su Chan saw Ao Wushuang walking into the bathroom after removing her clothes one by one. After a while, steam had filled the bathroom. The curvy, perfect figure of Ao Wushuang could be seen on the ground glass.
Su Chan quietly walked to the door and listened carefully. After confirming that Ao Wushuang was taking a shower, she quickly jumped onto the bed and rummaged for her master's Seven-Treasure Tips.
She got them and was extremely delighted, but just as she was about to turn around and leave, she suddenly saw Ao Wushuang standing in front of her with a cold face. Ao Wushuang sneered and said, "I caught you this time, didn't I? Humph, fight with me? I noticed you as soon as I entered the room! Tell me, what do you want to do with my Seven-Treasure Tips?"
Su Chan widened her eyes and turned to look at the bathroom, only to find that the bathroom door was still closed but there was no one inside. She immediately muttered to herself, "I was too careless, too careless!"
Su Chan gave a forced smile and darted her eyes around. She tried desperately to come up with excuses and reasons in her heart.
Ao Wushuang sneered and said, "Again, you're making up lies again! You've been like this since you were a child. When you're trying to lie, you evade with your eyes! Let's see what kind of reason you can come up with this time!"
Since Su Chan couldn't get out of it, she lowered her head helplessly and told Ao Wushuang everything. Once she had finished speaking, she sadly took Ao Wushuang's hand and begged, "Master, please help Yundong! Sister Zi Yuan, Sister Zhou Qin, and even Kris can help him, but I can't. I'm sad!"
Su Chan uttered these words pitifully, but Ao Wushuang was trembling with anger. She pointed at Su Chan and said in a shaking voice, "You villain, do you still care about me at all? If you had come to ask me directly, wouldn't I have helped you? I have already planned to give him the money. When you want to get married to him in the future, I would have given you the money! I and Wang Yuanshan have already been separated by death. What's the use in me keeping the money forever? Should I use it for buying a coffin?
Ao Wushuang was palpitating with rage and said, "But you didn't discuss it with me in advance. You even dared to make decisions on your own to steal my things! Did I teach you to do things like this? If I don't offer it to you, you'll steal my things? I worked so hard to bring you up, teach you cultivation, teach you magic, and teach you how to interact with others. Is this how you repay me?"
Scolded by Ao Wushuang, Su Chan was extremely ashamed. She burst into tears and knelt down in front of her. She held her master's knees with both hands and cried, "Master, I'm sorry. I was wrong! Please don't be angry. Please forgive me!"
Ao Wushuang's indignant face calmed a little, and she said dejectedly, "Chan'er, I know you're sad. Li Yundong has Zi Yuan, a perfect partner, and Zhou Qin, an intelligent, brave and rich girl with a powerful background. You must be under unimaginable pressure. But have you ever thought about what you really need to care about when you love a person? What does he value in you? If Li Yundong didn't like you because you're poor, would still love him? You should cast off such a man!"
Ao Wushuang's words were like a morning bell, beating heavily through Su Chan's heart and shocking her.
The girl wiped her tears and stood up, saying with a serious expression, "Master, I know. I know what to do!"
Just as Su Chan was saying these words, it happened that Ling Yue was outside the door, and she cheered in surprise. "Leader, you're back too?"
When Su Chan heard the voice, she immediately wiped her tears from her face. Without saying a word, she rushed out of Ao Wushuang's room and into her own room.
Seeing Su Chan zooming out of Ao Wushuang's room without even greeting him and going into her own room again, Li Yundong was curious, but he didn't think too much about it. He said to Ling Yue with a smile, "Yes, I'm always thinking about the Medicine King Tripod. I have too many distracting thoughts, so I can't meditate in seclusion. Later, I found that Su Chan, Zi Yuan, and Zhou Qin were all gone. I guess they're in the same situation as me. They must have come back to worry about raising the money. Alas, as the Head of the school, how can I ever be free? Anyway, I'm not in the mood to cultivate, so I thought I might as well come back!"
At that moment, the little foxes all rushed over and complained, "Leader, that’s right, we have given all our money to raise funds!"
"Yes, Leader, I don't even have a penny now!"
Li Yundong didn't know whether to start crying or laughing at this point. Just as he was about to speak, he suddenly saw Su Chan rush out with a pink Hello Kitty money can and smash it on the ground without saying a word.
He was startled and cried out involuntarily, "What are you doing, Chan'er?"
She didn't answer. She looked blankly at the shards of the money can and the cash scattered over the ground. She squatted down and picked up the money piece by piece, nodding carefully and seriously. Then, she looked up at Li Yundong and said, "Yundong... This is all my money... I hope you won't think it's too little."
He was stunned. He stared blankly at Su Chan, only to see the girl in front of him looking at him with tears glistening in her eyes. She seemed to be about to start wailing at the next second.
Li Yundong couldn't help looking at the broken money can on the ground. There were two silvery keys on the floor. He suddenly remembered the time he had first met Su Chan!
He clearly recalled the situation before. He had bought her a money can. The girl had held the money can and smiled innocently and said, "Well, I can't open the money can. What if you take the money while I'm not around?"
"This silly girl put all the keys into her money can. She can't even get the money herself, but she's afraid that I will take it!"
However, was she really afraid that he would take her money?
Li Yundong suddenly remembered how when Su Chan had been injured by Lin Youfa, he had held her in his arms to take a taxi. The girl hadn't even forgotten to bring the money can when they were escaping. What had she said at that time?
Ah, yes, she'd said: "Money, you will have no money to spend..."
Just as he had been about to smash the money can pay the fare, the little had taken out another 50 yuan, which was all the money she had in the world.
What had he said at that time? "Didn't you put all of your money in there?"
And she'd replied, "I am afraid that one day you will take away the money can and abandon me. If that happens, I can use this money to look for you..."
These scenes flooded through his mind like a tide, making Li Yundong's heart full of sorrow. His eyes became blurry, sad and wet in an instant.
He forced a smile, held back his tears, and said, "Fool, you even smashed your money can. Aren't you afraid that you will have no money to look for me if I start disliking you in the future?"
The grievance and discomfort that had been accumulating in Su Chan's heart for a long time exploded out in an instant. She burst into tears, threw herself into Li Yundong's arms and cried, "Yundong, I'm indeed very poor. I don't have money. I'm naughty and I always get you into trouble. And I can't help you. But please don't dislike me!"
Li Yundong's eyes were full of tears. He forced a smile and said, "Fool, I used to be much poorer than you, but you never looked down on me for it!"
Saying that, he gently took the sparse smattering of money from the little girl's hand and said softly, "Although you don't have much, you have already given me everything you have. In my eyes, this money is more valuable than all the rest of the money in the world added together! Do you understand?"
Su Chan nodded with tears in her eyes. She looked at Li Yundong blankly with sorrow in her heart and thought happily to herself, "Yundong won't dislike me. He will never dislike me!"
He held her tightly in his arms and kissed her red lips deeply.
At that moment, everyone in the room was fascinated. Zi Yuan, Zhou Qin, and Kris all came out of the room. They all stared blankly at the couple acting as if there was no one else around them. Looking at the couple who had gone through such difficulties, no one could utter a word for a while.
At this time, the same thought flashed in everyone's mind: "It's easy to get priceless treasures, but rare to have a faithful lover!
