1237 Bragging

 Fangzheng replied: "What's the matter?"

The other party said, "I'm fine, but you are causing trouble! I'm asking you, why did you come to Black Mountain City from One Finger Monastery and come to the Hall of Illusions? Who asked you to cause trouble? What's your purpose?"

Fangzheng scratched his head and said, "Nothing. I came to see the fireflies and realized that there's too much darkness in this matter. So I reported it in passing."

"In passing? Do you know how much you made us lose because of an in-passing gesture? I'm afraid you'll be scared to death by the number!" said the man.

"How much?"

The man said, "Five million! Just because of one sentence from you, I lost five million at once! Tell me, how do you want to compensate me?"

Fangzheng wore a blank expression. Compensate? He had never considered it before. Besides, what this fellow said was completely baffling. What he did wasn't right. Now that he lost money, he wanted others to compensate him?

The man continued, "I know who you are. I know you're quite impressive, but what I want to tell you is that nothing you do works with my territory! I'm someone you can't afford to offend! If you don't compensate me, I'll let you understand what despair means! I'll seal your monastery and all Buddhist lands will ban you!"

Fangzheng was rendered completely speechless. Was this fellow out of his mind? Sealing his monastery? If Fangzheng was unwilling, who could ban him?

Zhu Lin shook her head when she saw Fangzheng's blank expression and the man's arrogant words.

Zhu Lin snatched Fangzheng's cell phone and said, "Master, you are a civilized person, a monkey on a mountain with pure heart and few desires. I'll deal with such an oddity. Hmph, I, Kinky Queen, have reigned supreme for so many years. I've never lost to anyone in a bragging match!"

Fangzheng thought for a moment. Indeed, he was not good at this. Therefore, he gave up and let her take his spot.

However, what did she mean by a monkey on a mountain mean? F**k, it seems I got cursed...

However, Zhu Lin had obviously taken advantage of the situation and ran off. She took the cell phone and went to a corner. She tapped on the screen rapidly as though she was saying something.

Fangzheng leaned over and began reading.

Zhu Lin: "Wow, why are you so awesome? You're even banning me? Compensation? Come, tell me who you are. Let me see how awesome you are!"

The other party was clearly stunned by the chunk of text. He probably never expected a monk to speak so fiercely.

However, the other party still said with great pomp, "You want me to tell you who I am? What's the matter? Are we trying to see who's backer is stronger? Alright, you first. Let me see who you can summon! I'll wait here. I can also summon anyone you summon. I'll help you summon those you can't! How about it? Competing with me about summoning people and backers? You really have no idea what death means! Why didn't you ask around how capable I am in this personal fief of mine-Black Mountain!"

Fangzheng said, "He sure makes bold claims. Could he be the family member of some powerful politician?"

Zhu Lin sneered and said, "Abbot Fangzheng, don't be unconvinced. You are a monkey on a mountain, and you have seen too few people. I call bullsh*t on being a family member of a powerful politician. I don't think he's capable at all. All he does is act cool and scare people. He wants to take the chance to reap benefits! I want to see what capabilities he has! When it comes to bragging, why would I be afraid of him?"

With that said, Zhu Lin said, "Are you that awesome? Alright, summon someone over. Let's see if he dares to speak directly to me! Black Mountain is such a small place and you call it impressive? Let me tell you, in China, I can do whatever I want!"

Fangzheng was rendered completely speechless when he saw this. It was a battle between two braggarts.

Indeed, the other party was infuriated. "Just because I'm being humble, do you think I'm a pushover? Even the mayor of Black Mountain City doesn't dare talk to me like that! I can even talk to a bigwig from Beijing. Do you believe that I'll call a bigwig to have a nice chat with you?"

Squirrel said, "This person seems very powerful."

Fangzheng subconsciously nodded. To instantly mention bigwigs from Beijing didn't seem like something one would brag if he lacked the capability.

It was a pity that Zhu Lin didn't fall for claims like this. She immediately replied: "Bigwigs from Beijing? Which department? Tell me! If you can say it out, color me impressed."

"Soldiers against soldiers and generals against generals. You have nothing and you want me to call a bigwig? That's overkill. Little Monk, you either have to compensate or there's no end to today's matter."

"You're right. Don't tell me you don't know anyone powerful?"

"You'll know once you give it a try. But once we start fighting, humph... Don't blame me for not warning you. You have to bear the consequences!"

"Tsk, tsk. Your bigwig is so awesome. I want to see what kind of consequences I have to bear. Come on..."

Fangzheng watched for a while and found the scene rather familiar. It was like a fight between village kids. One party would say how powerful his dad was while the other would mention how powerful his uncle was. They kept brandishing their poles as a show of might, but no battle ensued... In fact, it was all just a bluff. If their parents learned of a fight, they would probably all be taken back for a beating. No one would help them fight.

The more Fangzheng watched, the more certain he was right. He also felt the pulse of this whole matter.. He licked his lips and said, "Why don't I try?"

However, Zhu Lin didn't accept it. "Don't mess around. I'm having a great time bragging. This fellow is also quite a joke. He's very good at bragging, but he doesn't say anything substantial. I want to see what he's made of."

Zhu Lin quickly typed, "Didn't you want to summon someone? Do it. Let me see who you know."

The next moment, the other party invited them to join a chat group. When they entered, they saw that there was one person inside. The person's name was: "Black Mountain City Mayor!"

When Zhu Lin saw this, her face instantly turned livid. "Does this fellow really take me as a fool! Even the mayor of Black Mountain City isn't that high-profile!"

Black Mountain City Mayor spoke first: "Fangzheng, you sure are bold. Why didn't you take a good look first! How dare you provoke him! You have caused a huge mess in Black Mountain City. Do you still want that monastery of yours to remain open?"

Zhu Lin was a little unsure as she looked at Fangzheng.

Fangzheng chuckled. "Let This Penniless Monk do it."

Zhu Lin said, "There's no need. Just tell me. As long as you're not afraid, I'll help you brag."

Fangzheng shook his head. "Let This Penniless Monk do it."

Zhu Lin asked, "Then do you know how to brag?"

Fangzheng thought and said, "A little."

Zhu Lin said, "Alright, try to expand your reach a little. Just jeep bragging with all your might. It's just a game of scaring each other. Of course, if you want to ignore him, just blacklist him directly. If he dares to meet you, I believe he won't be able to beat you."

Fangzheng was rendered speechless. This lass was really... a confidant!

Fangzheng took the cell phone and sent: "You are the mayor of Black Mountain City?"
