Chapter 544 - 544 Monk Older Brother, We've Come
544 Monk Older Brother, We’ve Come
When Gu Nuo’er went over, Kongjue was lying on the roof, carefully repairing the tiles.
“Monk older brother~” A soft voice sounded from behind.
Kongjue didn’t turn around. He thought that he was hallucinating.
After all, the dilapidated monastery he was in was deep in the mountains. Not only was it remote, but no one knew its location.
Moreover, why would a delicate little princess like Gu Nuo’er travel all the way here to look for him?
However, his two disciples, Shuyi and Shu’er, held onto the ladder and exclaimed, “Master, Master, there are two beautiful people at the door!”1
Kongjue turned around and indeed saw Ye Siming carrying Gu Nuo’er with a bag of things in his hand. The two of them were standing at the door.
The child waved her fair hands and her watery eyes curved into crescents as she smiled happily.
On the other hand, Ye Siming, who was beside her, looked lazy and a little casual.
Kongjue was stunned. “Benefactor, why are you here?”
He came down the ladder and Gu Nuo’er also jumped out of Ye Siming’s arms and onto the ground.
She carried the two bags of pastries and ran over with all her might, raising them to Kongjue.
“Monk older brother, you haven’t come for a few days. I’m afraid that you’ll starve to death. These are for you to eat!”
Kongjue was stunned for a moment. He pressed his palms together and shook his head. “Thank you for your kind intentions, Little Benefactor, Patronenefactor. This poor monk isn’t hungry. Please take them back.”
“How can that do? I’m already here. Moreover, the two little bald younger brothers behind you look very hungry!”
Kongjue turned around and looked behind him. Shuyi and Shu’er’s eyes were wide open and they couldn’t help but swallow their saliva.
The food in the dilapidated temple was usually simple. The two children ate plain soup and water. When they saw two big bags of food, they couldn’t help but want to eat them.
Kongjue knew that he hadn’t been able to treat the two children well, but this was what diligent cultivation was like.
He sighed and took the food. “Thank you, Little Benefactor.”
Gu Nuo’er smiled and swayed her small feet as she kept her hands behind her back. “No need, no need~”
Kongjue handed the bags to Shuyi and Shu’er. The two young monks didn’t forget to put their palms together in front of Gu Nuo’er and bow. “Thank you, Benefactor!”
Gu Nuo’er smiled sweetly.
Shuyi’s face immediately turned red.
Ye Siming sneered. “Snobbish kid.”
The way he snorted made Shuyi feel that this big brother was really difficult to get along with!
Shuyi quickly lowered his head, turned around, and ran off to enjoy the pastries with Shu’er.
Kongjue brought Gu Nuo’er and Ye Siming into the hall. “This poor monk will treat the two of you to a cup of tea. However, the temple is simple and we only have bitter tea left. I don’t know if you’re used to it.”
Gu Nuo’er held Ye Siming’s hand and walked forward. “We’ll know after we try it!”
Kongjue glanced sideways at the cold and arrogant youth.
When one entered the hall, one would see the statue of a true Buddha.
At that time, would this powerful demon reveal its true form?
If he did how would he protect Gu Nuo’er from being frightened?
Kongjue hesitated for a moment, still wondering if he should let them follow him into the hall.
Unexpectedly, Gu Nuo’er had already pulled Ye Siming and stepped in.
It was too late to stop them. It seemed that this was the will of the heavens.
Any spirit monster that saw the true Buddha statue would reveal its true colors. Moreover, those with low cultivation levels might even be reduced to ashes.
Kongjue followed behind them and looked at Ye Siming’s back cautiously.
Unexpectedly, the moment Gu Nuo’er entered, she let go of Ye Siming’s hand and ran around curiously.
“Wow, monk older brother, this altar is so old!”
Ye Siming looked up and narrowed his narrow eyes, staring at the tall statue.
He sneered. “Stupid old man, you’ve already been worshipped?”
