1174 All Creatures Have Love

 However, when Fangzheng saw it, his heart skipped a beat. This dog was the hero dog he and Tian Xin had been looking for!

Previously, due to his hurry, Fangzheng didn't carefully size up the hero dog. But now that he was looking at it carefully, he realized that its fur was terribly unkempt. However, what made him even more furious was that the reason why its fur was unkempt was because of the constant burns it suffered from cigarettes!

The culprits were none other than the four bastards in front of him.

Immediately, a raging fire burned in Fangzheng's heart, and he was about to unleash his anger!

But he ended up hearing a loud bang.

Fangzheng turned his head and saw Tian Xin standing up with her brows furrowed. She said angrily, "You guys are too much! How can you bully a dog?! What kind of men are you!?"

When Fangzheng heard that, he thought to himself, "Oh no. This girl has such a fierce personality that she will charge over in an instant. Those four men all look tipsy; it's obvious that they're four drunkards. If a drunkard goes crazy, he won't reason with her or go easy on her just because she's a girl."

As expected, after hearing Tian Xin's shout, the four drunkards turned around at the same time. One of them slammed the table and stood up with a beer bottle in hand!

The other three immediately stood up, and the group blocked the entrance.

At that moment, Tian Xin realized that she didn't seem to have enough firepower. She couldn't beat her opponents! She was ultimately a girl, so she was still a little flustered when faced with such a situation. She subconsciously looked at Fangzheng.

Fangzheng hurriedly bowed his head to eat his noodles! He didn't see anything!

When Tian Xin saw this, she was immediately infuriated. She gritted her teeth and said, "Why are you... Sigh!"

Then, she suddenly turned her head and stood in front of Fangzheng, roaring. "What are you doing? I'm telling you, I'll call the police!"

One of the drunkards chuckled when he heard that. "Call the police? Do you wanna bet that before the police arrive... Ah!"

As the drunkard said this, he suddenly looked behind Tian Xin in horror.

A crack suddenly appeared on the wall behind Tian Xin. Following that, a gigantic devil-like dog came out of it. Its cold gaze landed on the four. As though splashed with ice water, their stupor was immediately washed away.

Looking at the terrifying head of the dog, the four felt their bodies go limp!

Following that, the devil hound grinned at them and said, "That dog is my descendant. If anything ever happens to her again, I will come out of hell and take you down for a good chat! Now scram!"

The four of them were already paralyzed with fear. Hearing the word 'scram,' they felt as if they had been pardoned. Throwing away their beer bottles, they turned around and scrambled out of the small restaurant, disappearing in a flash.

Tian Xin didn't look behind. Even if she did, she wouldn't be able to see the strange scene as she hadn't been pulled into a dream. Hence, when she saw that they were scared off, she thought that it was all because of her. She turned around smugly and said, "Humph, it's true that good triumphs over evil. I'm still the best!"

When Fangzheng heard that, he quickly clapped.

When Tian Xin saw this, she rolled her eyes at Fangzheng.

Fangzheng put down his bowl and chopsticks and smiled in satisfaction. "I'm done eating."

Tian Xin harrumphed and said, "Why don't you get stuffed to death?"

With that said, Tian Xin suddenly exclaimed. "Ah, the hero dog was also scared off! Quick, chase after it!"

As she spoke, Tian Xin had already run out. Fangzheng hurriedly paid and chased after her.

From afar, he saw Tian Xin running north.

Fangzheng hurriedly followed, taking a few bends before arriving at a narrow alley where Tian Xin stopped. Just as Fangzheng was about to ask, he saw Tian Xin make a gesture for him to keep quiet. Then, tears streamed down her face...

Fangzheng's heart tightened when he saw this. He thought to himself, "Could something have happened to the hero dog?"

With this in mind, Fangzheng hurriedly approached and looked into the alley.

Although it was an alley, it was actually a gap between two buildings. A person's body could pass through it by walking sideways, but the end of the alley was blocked by a brick wall. It was a dead end.

There was a pile of cardboard, abandoned bubble wrap, and other things stacked here. The hero dog was lying on top of it, and beneath her were five little puppies. They were trying their best to prop themselves up with their short legs, raising their tiny behinds while being nursed.

The stray dog lay there with her eyes slightly closed, looking happy. However, when she saw Fangzheng and Tian Xin, she gave them a wary glance. After confirming that the two of them didn't pose any danger, she continued to enjoy the blissful moment.

Upon seeing this, Tian Xin's tears flowed down. She tugged at Fangzheng's arm and sighed. "At first, I thought she was silly, but now I realize that she wasn't dumb to allow others to burn her like a toy in exchange for food. It's not that she doesn't know pain or beauty. She only wants to have her fill to produce milk to feed her children..."

Fangzheng sighed gently and nodded. "The myriad beings are intelligent. Motherly love is selfless and fearless, and this is the perfect example of love. Sometimes, humans are inferior to animals."

Tian Xin said, "That's right. Comparing her to those four bastards, they are practically the beasts."

Fangzheng nodded.

Tian Xin suddenly looked up at Fangzheng and said, "This is a good dog. She saved me and is so great. Shall we adopt her?"

Fangzheng was stunned when he heard that. Adopt? Fangzheng didn't mind since there was plenty of space in One Finger Monastery.

But what did "we" mean? Could it be?

Fangzheng suddenly had an ominous feeling...

Tian Xin continued. "That's right. Since the place we rent has so much space, why don't we..." Tian Xin looked at Fangzheng with a pleading look, hoping to negotiate with him.

Fangzheng looked at Tian Xin's pitiful look and asked, "Aren't you allergic to dogs?"

Tian Xin said, "It's okay. I'll just wear a mask at home. If there's someone suitable in the future, I can let them take care of the doggie. In short, I want to give her a home now."

When Fangzheng heard that, he frowned and shook his head solemnly. "If that's the case, I refuse."

"Why?" Tian Xin asked, puzzled.

Fangzheng said, "Humans have lifespans in the order of a hundred years, but a dog's lifespan is only a decade or two short. Her lifespan is only one-fifth that of humans. Your one day is equivalent to five days of her life. Your one year is equivalent to five years of her life."

"You might take care of her for a relatively short period of time in your eyes, but to her, that'll be a large part of her life! She will give all her feelings to you, but you will end up giving her to someone else. Have you thought about her feelings?"

"If you aren't prepared to spend the rest of her life with her, don't adopt her. She is already pitiful enough. Please don't let her experience the pain of being abandoned again, okay?"

Tian Xin originally imagined that this unreliable boyfriend of hers was going to speak nonsense, but never did she expect that he would say such a thing.
