1046 Who Would Want to Expiate Your Sins?

 After he was released at the age of 27, he found an opportunity to burn down the house of the person whose arm he had chopped. And during the fire, he blocked their door.

With a lot of lives being lost at once as a result of the fire, he knew he was in trouble, so he fled to Gulin province, changing his name slightly. Later, he got acquainted with Fang Kui and began stealing dogs. To hide his identity, he also chose to feign dumbness and act as though he was Fang Kui's lackey.

Who would have imagined that such a bloodthirsty murderer would be acting as the lackey of a dog thief?

Furthermore, Zheng Yuan was rather generous. He only took just enough for his living expenses from the profit they got from catching and killing dogs; therefore, Fang Kui enjoyed working with him.

Today, Fang Kui had targeted One Finger Village, resulting in this turn of events.

Zheng Yuan could have continued feigning his low intelligence, but now that they had been exposed with witnesses, even the police were about to get called in! More importantly, Xu Xun had shouted "murder" to get someone to save her!

This instantly triggered Zheng Yuan. He knew very well that the police wouldn't be that diligent if it was some trivial problem, but the word "murder" meant that the police would come and carry out a detailed investigation.

The police would quickly figure out Fang Kui's past deeds and imprison him for a while or perhaps only fine him. As for him? He feared dealing with the police the most. It was fine as long as he wasn't found, but once they set their sights on him, the only outcomes for him would be execution or life imprisonment! Regardless of which one it was, Zheng Yuan didn't want to experience either of them.

Therefore, he had a thought rise up in him. Kill them all before escaping! No one knows I was here after all.

Hence, he shot Ma Yuan. However, this was only the beginning. He wanted to kill another person the very next moment! As for Fang Kui and the woman, he was only waiting for a better opportunity before he would kill both of them too.

These matters were instantly ingrained in Fangzheng's mind with one look. Although it appeared as though he had watched an entire tv series, it only took an instant!

"Amitabha. Protection!" Fangzheng raised his hand and pressed down into the distance.

The Thousand-armed and Thousand-eyed Guan Yin also extended one hand and pressed down ahead.

Almost at the same time, Zheng Yuan snapped to his senses. No matter what was on the mountain, he only had one thought-kill and flee! Hence, he shot at Tan Ming.

A beam shot through the sky!

When Tan Ming saw Zheng Yuan pull the trigger, he knew he was doomed. Almost at the same time, he saw a lotus flower bloom out of thin air!

Pfft!

That crossbow arrow was blocked by the lotus flower!

Tan Ming looked at this scene with incredulity. After gulping a mouthful of saliva, he suddenly turned around and kowtowed towards Mt. One Finger, shouting. "Thank you for saving my life, Guan Yin Bodhisattva! Thank you. Please, save my brother!"

Almost at the same time, lotus flower petals landed on Ma Yuan's face before disappearing. Ma Yuan suddenly opened his eyes as he panted, crying. "Bodhisattva! Bodhisattva!"

Upon seeing this, Tan Ming laughed as tears streamed down his cheeks uncontrollably. Then, he nodded. "That's right! It was Bodhisattva! Bodhisattva saved our lives!"

Just as he finished his sentence, the Thousand-armed and Thousand-eyed Guan Yin in the sky turned blurry.

"Guan Yin Bodhisattva is leaving?" someone on the mountain exclaimed.

At the foot of the mountain, Tan Ming was dumbfounded. Wasn't Guan Yin Bodhisattva coming and leaving too suddenly?

Zheng Yuan was stunned by the lotus flowers that appeared out of thin air. These were no longer normal human means! In the dead of winter, even plum blossoms didn't bloom in such weather, much less lotus flowers. Furthermore, even if they would, how could a flower block a crossbow arrow? It was too fantastic!

Zheng Yuan was about to run when he saw Guan Yin Bodhisattva's figure slowly dissipate. He was instantly delighted. "Hahaha! This crappy Guan Yin is scramming! The heavens bestow me with luck. Even Guan Yin can't do anything to me! F**k, I'm going on a killing spree today!"

As he spoke, Zheng Yuan loaded the crossbow once again.

At this moment, the Guan Yin Bodhisattva which had turned illusory suddenly blurred again before turning corporeal once more.

But this time, it was a man wearing a crown who had a kasaya draped over him that appeared. He wore a solemn look as his eyes burned with the flames of hell. He held one hand in a "fear not" gesture and a Vajra Banner in the other! Behind him was a behemoth's phantom that resembled a massive lion.

"Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva! It's Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva!" someone shouted.

When Fang Kui saw this, he screamed.

Zheng Yuan turned his head suddenly and glared at him. "Shut up!"

Frightened, Fang Kui didn't dare make another sound.

Zheng Yuan narrowed his eyes as he looked at Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva on the mountain. "If there's really Bodhisattva in this world, my parents wouldn't be dead! This Bodhisattva must be fake! I don't believe in him. Besides, isn't Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva meant to expiate the sins of evil ghosts? I'm still human. Try doing that to me!"

As Zheng Yuan spoke, he shot another arrow at Tan Ming!

At that moment, there was a loud Buddhist roar from the mountaintop. "Ignoramus, who would want to expiate your sins? Here comes This Penniless Monk!"

With that said, the gigantic Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva suddenly waved the Vajra Banner in his hand as Fangzheng leaped up into the sky and stepped onto it in midair. With another wave of his hand, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva sent Fangzheng flying into the sky.

Upon seeing this, Red Boy blew into the air, pushing away the dark clouds and allowing the moonlight to instantly brighten significantly. The moon even seemed to enlarge several times!

Everyone saw a white-robed monk leap into the air and fly up into the heavens like it was an immortal's ascension to the moon!

Fangzheng seemed to stand on the moon as he pressed his palms together. He shouted with a dignified voice. "Amitabha. This Penniless Monk shall subdue evil today!"

His roar was extremely loud, so loud that it resembled thunder.

The crowd on the mountain was completely dumbfounded. The tourists who originally doubted Fangzheng were completely dumbfounded. All they could do was to prostrate themselves! For such a miracle, as long as Fangzheng didn't fall to his death, he would definitely be hailed a true Buddha! Hence, all of them widened their eyes as they stared at the monk in the sky. They wanted to know what he was up to.

This scene wasn't taking place solely on the mountain or among the few people in One Finger Village!

Fangzheng had jumped too high, and the moonlight had become overly bright thanks to Red Boy. With the moonlight pouring down and with the appearance of Bodhisattva, the whole event was staggering. It was impossible not to see it.

Nearly everyone from the surrounding villages ran out and looked up into the sky at the true Buddha.

At the same time, many tourists had been attracted thanks to Fangzheng advertising for Five Rivers Village. These were the tourists who lived close to the region already, and they happened to see this scene when they looked up. Immediately, all of them were flabbergasted.

Someone secretly pinched himself to see if he was in a dream.

And another person even shouted "ET!"

Regardless of what everyone called him, Fangzheng's roar instantly made them realize that the figure in the sky wasn't Buddha or ET, but Abbot Fangzheng from One Finger Monastery!
