1202 Returning to the Mountain

 Ambassador Wang nodded and said, "You are right, but we believe that the Italian government has the ability to ensure the safety of our citizens. We have zero doubts!"

Walt nearly cried when he heard that. "Mr. Wang, can we not beat around the bush? That monk is the God of Misfortune. No matter where he goes, bad luck follows. We really can't take the damage he causes. Quickly take him away."

Ambassador Wang's expression turned serious when he heard that. "First, Abbot Fangzheng is a very famous accomplished monk in China. You can't say that about him. Second, whether he stays or leaves isn't up to us. He has sufficient freedom. When he wants to leave is his business. We have no right to interfere."

Walt repeatedly apologized. "Yes, yes, yes. I misspoke, I apologize. Ambassador Wang... Can we say something more useful?"

Ambassador Wang smiled and said, "Alright, let's talk about compensation then. Your country accused our country's master for no reason and even detained him. You fired guns at him and used cannons to blow him up. How are you going to resolve this matter? How are you going to make compensation? Also, a company from your country threatened my country for the formula and accused our country of unfair actions. How will you compensate us for that? Also..."

Ambassador Wang spoke for ten minutes in one go. From beginning to end, he listed more than ten charges. Finally, he asked, "Walt, you're my old friend. It's not that I don't want to help you, but I can't help you before these problems are resolved. I don't know how to help you either."

Walt was dumbfounded. The problems Ambassador Wang had listed were actually trivial individually and on a small scale, but when listed and placed at the international level, their consequences could be greatly amplified!

This was akin to a person getting arrested by being a public nuisance on the streets.

It was a small matter to begin with, but if it was brought to the forefront as an international matter, it could be expanded into a problem of human rights, stifled freedom, and so on. It would then be used to lash out on the correctness of a country's ideology.

At this moment, Ambassador Wang was using this move. He was mixing up matters big and small!

Yet at that moment, because Fangzheng had yet to leave, Walt could not reject him.

The negotiation lasted for a day.

The Annoyance Doll also wandered around Rome for an entire day. To be precise, it stayed around the Senate and the various government departments in the Senate, causing chaos everywhere it passed.

Before Walt could finish the negotiation, he kept receiving phone calls to speed it up. In the end, it was unknown what Walt promised Ambassador Wang, but he left the embassy with a dejected face and returned home.

Before long, Fangzheng met Ambassador Wang on the street. The two looked at each other and smiled. Fangzheng waved his hand, and the Annoyance Doll vanished.

As for Fangzheng, he was watched by all the members of the Italian government as he boarded the plane. He was finally gone!

At the same time, the Italian government passed a bill: "Fangzheng is to be blacklisted, never allowed to step into Italy again!"

When Fangzheng received the news, he could only shake his head helplessly.

Red Boy asked, "Master, we won't be able to go to Italy in the future. What do we do if we still wish to go?"

Fangzheng sighed. "There's always a way in this world. It's called being a stowaway."

Red Boy said, "Us as stowaways? That wouldn't be nice, right?"

Fangzheng said, "Of course not. That's why we can head over openly when the time comes. Will the friendly and hospital Italian government chase us away?"

Red Boy rolled his eyes and thought, "If they had the ability to chase us away, they would probably have crushed us and made us into dumplings!

However, could they? That was the question. If they couldn't beat them, they would probably just turn their eyes away and feign ignorance.

At the same time, the Chinese government sent a grand line up to begin the accusation journey. In addition, with Italy completely turning the tables on their alliance, along with the testimony of Phelps and the rest, all the international comments about China bullying Italy were eliminated. This snuffed out all the talk about China stealing Italy's Gaia Company's medical intellectual property.

At the same time, China began to take action on the slanderous remarks the other party had made and so on. An international farce began. Although China didn't receive too many benefits, no one mentioned that the top of Gaia's medical intellectual property had been developed independently anymore.

Secondly, Fangzheng was secretly put on an 'unwelcome list' by many countries.

Of course, many countries still did not believe that Fangzheng had such capabilities. Most people believed that everything that had happened in Italy had the Chinese government pulling the strings behind the incidents. A lot of countries even began a series of investigations to weed out any espionage activities. In the end, they didn't manage to arrest many Chinese spies, but ended up capturing plenty of their allies' spies... Instantly, everyone turned ashen. Every time they met, they didn't know if they should shake hands or give each other a punch.

Fangzheng no longer cared about international matters. At that moment, he finally saw his long-awaited bed. He lay down and closed his eyes. Regardless of what happened outside, he decided that sleep came first.

The next day, Fangzheng got up, feeling refreshed. Just as he finished his breakfast, he heard Monkey say, "Master, Patron Wang is here to see you."

Fangzheng hurriedly put down his chopsticks and left through the back door. He thought, "The good news is here, right?"

Once he exited the back door, Wang Yougui quickly held him and said with a smile, "Good lad! Impressive! An entire country, afraid of the sh*t you can stir!"

Fangzheng shook his head. "It was... luck. Luck."

Fangzheng had to admit that it was indeed luck. If he hadn't obtained the Annoyance Doll at the draw, he wouldn't have been able to do anything to Italy. Although he was invulnerable, how much trouble could he cause bare-handed? Furthermore, once he struck, he would be at fault. Not only would Italy not yield, but he would also bring about retaliation with a vengeance. It would lead to endless troubles...

However, it was different with the Annoyance Doll. The doll didn't do anything, and it was just walking around. As for your bad luck? Sorry, that's on you. Whatever you say is useless without any concrete evidence. You claim that it's a result of divine powers? Sorry, these things cannot be used as evidence. This is because science proved long ago that there are no divine powers in this world!

However, divine powers existed in reality. The bad luck that was incorporeal was truly terrifying.

It was precisely because of this that Italy could only suffer in silence.

Fangzheng felt his heart ache when he thought of the Annoyance Doll. This was because he hadn't noticed it when he dispelled the doll, but when he arrived home, he realized that the doll had shattered! This also meant that it was a one-time item. It was gone after he finished using it.

"Let's hope that the spoils of war can make up for the damage to This Penniless Monk's heart." Although Fangzheng had such thoughts, he knew very well that he had profited greatly this time. At the very least, he had played the role of striking fear into the hearts of others. In the future, if unscrupulous businessmen from other countries wanted to use Fangzheng's intellectual property, they would have to consider it very carefully. Even if some politicians were to back them, they had to consider the consequences of Fangzheng coming for them.

One Finger Monastery was finally at peace for a while.

At the very least, that was what Fangzheng thought. However, he ultimately thought too simply and underestimated the allure of his medical knowledge.
