738 Bridge of Helplessness

 "It's okay. It hasn't been that long..." Zhang Huihui replied subconsciously, only to realize that she said something she shouldn't have. "This place of yours is really nice. Even I'm beginning to admire your lifestyle. There's no need to worry about food and drink, and there's good water and a nice scenery on this beautiful mountain."

Fangzheng knew that Zhang Huihui was a classic softie at heart, so he didn't pick on her words. He said, "It's alright."

"Was this pond really a result of the earthquake?" Zhang Huihui looked at the Heavenly Dragon Pond curiously.

Fangzheng smiled, which Zhang Huihui believed to be a silent admission. She tutted in wonder. "This sure is miraculous. To have an earthquake like this, it's almost like it's a game. No damage was done, and such a perfect pond resulted from the quake."

Fangzheng continued smiling. It was better for him to remain silent on certain matters.

"Brother Fangzheng, Sister and I came all the way here just to visit you. By the way, Sister said that winter was coming, so here's something." With that said, Little Seven handed over the box in his hand.

Fangzheng was surprised as he looked at Zhang Huihui who raised her head high, as though she didn't see him.

Fangzheng chuckled, opened the box, and was surprised to find a hat inside!

"Uh..." Fangzheng's smile instantly turned odd.

"What's up with that reaction? Do you dislike it? If you do, return it to me!" Zhang Huihui was instantly infuriated seeing Fangzheng's smile. She had gifted him something out of good will, but all she received was that look of disdain? With her temper flaring up, she nearly yelled.

Fangzheng hurriedly took it and smiled. "Amitabha, that's not it. It's just that This Penniless Monk has really never worn a hat before."

Little Seven said, "Brother Fangzheng, won't your head feel cold during winter without any hair? I discussed with Sister for quite a while before deciding to gift you a hat. This hat really warms you. You can try it on!"

With that said, Little Seven took out the hat and helped Fangzheng try it on.

The moment he wore it, the deadpan Zhang Huihui couldn't help laughing. And she couldn't stop as she laughed out loud incessantly.

Fangzheng was puzzled. It was only a hat; was there a need to laugh that much? He looked at Little Seven who also began laughing after a momentary shock.

Fangzheng looked at Squirrel who had already run off with his fat ass. From the looks of it, he likely ran off somewhere to laugh...

Fangzheng hurried to the side of the Heavenly Dragon Pond and used the reflection to look at himself. Instantly, his face blackened. This hat was no ordinary hat. There were two bunny ears on it! It was actually fine with the bunny ears, but more importantly, once it was coupled with Fangzheng's face, he instantly looked like an adorable baby bunny. He looked as adorable as could be, totally incongruent with his original image! That's not right. Why is the hat so big?

"Fangzheng, you made a mistake. There are two hats in there. The one you put on is for Lone Wolf," Zhang Huihui said as she held back her laughter.

Fangzheng immediately blushed when he heard that. Indeed, how could a hat be that huge? Besides, he was the master of a generation. Why would he need to wear a hat? Wouldn't that be embarrassing? Therefore, he quickly took it off and pulled the box on top away. Indeed, there was another box beneath the first one and when he opened it to take a look, there was a tiny round hat inside. It was a white hat with an ancient vibe to it. The moment Fangzheng took it out and wore it, Little Seven clapped and exclaimed. "Brother Fangzheng, you look really handsome!"

Zhang Huihui's eyes lit up as well.

"Naturally. This Penniless Monk was born flawless, so it's natural to look good wearing anything." As Fangzheng spoke, he looked at his reflection in the Heavenly Dragon Pond. The hat actually matched his robes perfectly, making it look beautiful! However, it was quite odd to see a monk wearing a hat. However, since it was a kind gesture of the duo, Fangzheng did not reject the gift.

"How embarrassing." Little Seven stroked his face before saying, "This hat took me and my sister a day to choose. It was difficult to buy it."

"Thank you, Patrons, for going through the trouble," Fangzheng said with a smile.

Zhang Huihui said, "As long as it looks good on you. If it didn't, I could return it and save quite a bit of money..." Then she changed topics and requested a tour of One Finger Monastery.

Fangzheng naturally readily agreed. As he led the siblings into One Finger Monastery, they walked across the bridge over Heavenly Dragon Pond. Little Seven asked curiously, "Brother Fangzheng, what's the name of this bridge?"

Fangzheng had long thought of a name, and he casually replied, "It's called the Bridge of for visiting.

Fangzheng thought for a moment and tried to get Wang Yougui to excuse him by claiming that he was still meditating. It wasn't that Fangzheng was trying to put on airs, but he was still unsure what he should do when facing the official of this county. Fangzheng could guess County Head Qi's ideas, but One Finger Monastery was ultimately a land of Buddhist worship. To really make it a tourist attraction would involve him politically. And about this aspect, Fangzheng really knew nothing.According to Chinese legend, this is the bridge the dead must cross first after passing away.
