360 Patron, we are talking about chickens

 However, Lin Ying did not even look at him. Instead she was tugging at Xia Meng saying something while looking worried. Clearly she was worried about Lin Zicheng's safety. Towards this Lin Zicheng could only cry out desperately, "Sister, I'm here! Save me... Boohoo!"

In the end, Xia Meng looked over and shouted, "Lin Lei, this chicken is too noisy. Quickly drain its blood to shut it up."

Once that was said, Lin Zicheng lost control of his bladder as a warm fluid flowed out... He was really going to be killed!

Lin Lei shouted, "Got it, Brother Meng! Wait a little longer. I'm getting some timber. Wait until I boil some water."

When Lin Zicheng heard that, he had an ominous feeling. He vaguely remembered that he had taught Lin Lei a cruel way of killing animals...

"Lin Lei, what are you up to now?" asked Lin Ying.

Lin Lei chuckled. "Nothing. Brother said that the better the thing, the more you need to taste it in its original form. It's only delicious when it's fresh. For this sort of extreme-grade tasty game, I'm thinking of trying a method he taught me. I'll boil a pot of water and then while it's still alive, I'll throw it into the water to scorch it. At that moment, it won't be dead, and I'll take the opportunity to remove all its feathers. Although by doing so some of the blood will not flow out and the meat might have the smell of blood, Brother said that men should eat things with a little blood to be deserving of their manhood. Now that Brother isn't around, I have to give it a try."

Lin Zicheng nearly fainted when he heard that. He wished he could give himself a hundred slaps. Why was he asking for it back then? Why did he teach Lin Lei all these things? If he had not taught him, he would not be suffering in this manner. He could still live...

"Isn't that too cruel?" Lin Ying said with a disdainful look.

"I thought so too in the past, but Brother always said I was too effeminate and not manly enough. Now that he isn't here, I'll be a man, so that he won't look down on me all the time!" After Lin Lei said that, he lit the timber. As the flames burned, the water in the pot began to bubble. Lin Lei squatted by the side to wait.

Lin Zicheng felt time weighing heavily on him. He was counting down by the second, praying with each second that Lin Lei would change his mind and that he would have an opportunity to escape.

However as the steam increased, nothing changed. Lin Lei chuckled and said, "The water is boiling. Let me first try the feeling of scorching the chicken with boiling water!"

At that moment, Lin Zicheng really cried, wailing as he lost control of his bladder and bowels. He struggled with all his strength, twisting and writhing, but it did not do a thing. He was still picked up by Lin Lei and was about to be thrown into the pot! Seeing the boiling water closing in on him, with the burning steam hitting his face, he felt a stabbing pain... He yelled in horror but realized that no one could understand him. He was filled with helplessness, despair, and indignation. But none of that could change the situation.

Just as Lin Lei was about to throw Lin Zicheng into the pot...

"Amitabha. Patron, please wait." At that moment a Buddhist proclamation sounded.

This Buddhist proclamation sounded as pleasing as the heavenly chimes. For the very first time, Lin Zicheng realized how f**king much he loved monks! However, when he looked over, he nearly peed himself again! The person that came over was none other than the monk that had changed him into a hazel grouse! It was that monk who sat on the boulder!

Lin Lei was also given a fright. How did the motionless monk suddenly appear beside him?

However, Xia Meng smiled happily. He went forward and said, "Venerable One, you have finally awakened."

Fangzheng pressed his palms together and went straight to the point, "Amitabha. Patron, This Penniless Monk knows the answer to the question you wish to ask, but This Penniless Monk will not tell you."

The moment that was said, Xia Meng stopped smiling. Instead he said sternly, "Venerable One, this involves the important matter of a human's life. Please tell us."

Fangzheng shook his head. "Patron, don't say that. The patron you speak of is still alive, so how can you say that it involves a human life?" Then he stopped looking at Xia Meng and instead said to Lin Lei, "Patron, isn't it too cruel to throw a living chicken into boiling water?"

"As a monk, aren't you being too much of a busybody?" said Lin Lei unhappily.

Fangzheng smiled. "This Penniless Monk only involves himself with matters that require interjecting."

"Venerable One, tell us where my boss went to, and I'll release this chicken, alright?" suggested Xia Meng.

Lin Lei turned agape, but he did not say a word eventually.

Fangzheng smiled. "Patron, what if This Penniless Monk says no?"

"It's not early. We are all hungry. We can only stew this chicken to replenish our strength," said Xia Meng as he stared at Fangzheng, looking as though he had Fangzheng in his grasps.

Fangzheng smiled. "Patron, if you were to eat this chicken, you would not see Patron Lin in the future."

With that said, Xia Meng's expression changed drastically as he glared at Fangzheng fiercely, "It was you who abducted my boss, am I right?" At the same time, he unsheathed his bayonet, like a starving tiger baring its claws and teeth!

Fangzheng was unperturbed as he said indifferently, "Patron, we are talking about the problem with the chicken." As he said that, Fangzheng stamped his feet and the rock beneath his feet cracked open! The series of motions were tiny, but Xia Meng saw it very clearly!

Xia Meng drew a gasp and knew he had met someone formidable! His tone softened as well. "It's fine if we don't eat it. Give me a reason not to kill it."

"Patron, do you wish to hear the official or the non-official answer?"

"What does the non-official answer say?" asked Lin Lei out of curiosity.

Fangzheng said, "This chicken is not an ordinary chicken. It is intelligent, and knows many kinds of dances. It can also write. Do you think you should eat such a divine chicken?"

"Bullsh*t." Lin Lei curled his lips, completely unconvinced. "It's pointless if you bullsh*t like that. I'm definitely going to stew this chicken."

"What's the official answer then?" asked Lin Ying suddenly.

"Hazel grouses are listed as Category I nationally protected animals in our country. If you were to eat it, and This Penniless Monk sees it, he will definitely report to the police when he leaves this place. Don't blame This Penniless Monk for not helping if you find yourself thrown in prison," said Fangzheng with a smile.

With that said, Lin Lei and Xia Meng grimaced as though they had eaten a dead fly. They believed that the monk was crazy for his sanctified actions, but from the looks of it, he was a sly one! He had easily gotten a hold on them with a few words, hadn't he?

But how could Lin Lei release the hazel grouse? He was unwilling to do so!

Xia Meng was similarly indignant. He still hoped to use the hazel grouse to gather information from Fangzheng!

Lin Lei ground his teeth and said, "Monk, you said that it's intelligent, but can you prove it? If you can prove it, I'll let him go. If you can't, tell us my brother's whereabouts. How about that?" Lin Lei began trying to play some petty tricks. From his point of view, it was only a hazel grouse. How could it dance and write? He was bound to win this bet.

Lin Lei and Xia Meng rolled their eyes when they heard him, cursing inwardly at how retarded Lin Lei was. Only a fool would make such a bet! But...

Fangzheng agreed with a smile. "Sure."

"What?" Lin Ying and Xia Meng were stunned. They never expected the monk to really agree. Was he dumb? Thinking as to how sanctified he had acted previously, the way they looked at Fangzheng turned odder. They even felt a little pity for him.
