[14. One Flower, One Leaf, One Bodhi]
[Private chat] Jingzhen Abbot: Buddhism-Meditating while sitting, walking while meditating. One flower is like the world. One leaf is like the future. Spring comes and trees turn green. Autumn comes and folige scatter. To be at ease, one should not be selfish. You duty is to accept fate as it comes by.
[Private chat] White Lotus: …
[Private chat] Jingzhen Abbot: Red dust for ten feet, but laziness is born. Your benevolence may be small, but I compassionately accept. The word love is like a fire burning on ice; the fire melting the ice and the ice extinguishing the fire. The result, even this abbot cannot foretell.
[Private chat] White Lotus: -_-|||……
[Private chat] Jingzhen Abbot: Buddha-If everything is limited, then fate will also be limited
[Private chat] Jingzhen Abbot: Buddha-The sea is filled with boundless opportunities.
[Private chat] White Lotus: …..
[Private chat] Jingzhen Abbot: This benefactor, this abbot sees your innate Buddhist nature. Seeing your party of three descending from Yulong Mountain, the other two have murderous auras but your aura is peaceful and natural like the heart of a Buddha. I wonder if you are willing to enter my sect?
[Private chat] White Lotus: … I am level fifty, can’t worship a master… And this slave already has a master. Haven’t yet lifted the master-disciple relationship…
[Private chat] Jingzhen Abbot: The benefactor is level fifty, just right!
[Private chat] White Lotus: Which temple are you from? I will donate incense to you. Don’t hack me!
[Private chat] Jingzhen abbot: This abbot is from the Great Leiyin Temple.
[Private chat] White Lotus: From which province? ……
Bai Lian Hua thought: the Great Leiyin Temple. It is a famous temple from Journey to the West. As far as he knows, the Great Leiyin Temple is in Mount Emei and in reality is just a small temple. Can a monk from there still be able to access the Internet?? …that’s too farfetched?! Or perhaps, is it a hacker who is just playing with him?
[Private chat] Jingzhen Abbot: The temple is in the holy mountain of Lingshan.
[Private chat] White Lotus: Oh… Hehe…
[Private chat] Jingzhen Abbot: Benefactor. Would you like to enter my sect? Let us strengthen Buddhism across the world.
[System Tip: [Jingzhen Abbot] applied for a mentoring relationship with you [White Lotus], are you willing?]
Bai Lian Hua is dumbfounded. VERY dumbfounded. No, he almost actually felt that he had become a complete idiot. If someone applied for a mentoring relationship with a person who is already with a master, the system didn’t send a reminder: “[Sorry, the player [XXX] has already become a disciple of [XXX].]”?!!
So what is happening now? Is he teasing me? Or is this man a master hacker and like Roommate and Great God, already knew how to hack at such a high level?
Bai Lian Hua hesitated for a few seconds but before he could properly organise his thoughts, a message box appeared on the screen: [System prompt: Player [White Lotus] and [Quanzhen Abbot] have established a mentoring relationship. You have received the hidden task [Transfer Profession: Purdue Sentients]]
[System prompt: [Jingzhen abbot] used [Buddhist Scriptures] [Jiasha] [Rosary Beads] [Monk Staff] to trade with you for 0 gold 0 silver 1 copper, do you accept? ”
No way… he actually encountered a hidden occupation?? This, this, this…this is incredible!
Bai Lian Hua seemed to have received too much stimulation today and he didn’t have enough time to digest all the information. He felt like he was smothered in dog faeces to only realise that they are actually chocolate flavoured…can you understand how complicated his feelings are at the moment?
Bai Lian Hua steeled his heart and clicked ok.
[System prompt: “Shenzhou Goddess” quietly tells you, congratulations (Player [White Lotus]) your profession transfer has been successful. Your current profession: Monk (unchangeable). Tomorrow the official website will be updated. Thank you for your participation. Muah Muah~]
[Private chat] Jingzhen Abbot: In the sea of people, we are all individuals. If we are fated, we shall meet again.
Monk?!!! Your sister!! He doesn’t want to be bald!!!
Bai Lian Hua struggled to suppress his impulse to smash his keyboard, but the moment he saw his character on the computer screen, he once again spat out old blood: Where is his Defamed Emperor gear?! Why is he wearing Jiasha and carrying a monk’s stink and rosary?! Where is his gorgeous flowing hair??!! Is this an advertisement for hair removal cream? In just a few seconds, it’s all gone! This really is—–the dream for heavy haired people!!
[Nearby] Half-hearted Smile: White Lotus!! How did you turn into this appearance!!
[Nearby] White Lotus: !!!I don’t know!!!
[Nearby] Half-hearted Smile: Why did you suddenly stop moving? We thought your computer froze!
[Nearby] White Lotus: Freeze his mother! Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!! I just met this wretched old man!!! For some reason I agreed to trade with him and now I became like this!!! I even inexplicably changed professions! I can’t believe I am a monk now!!
[Nearby] Hundred Days Red: … Master, don’t be upset!
At the same time at the game development department.
A sly looking man with glasses raised his head from a large pile of snacks and looked at the system prompt in front of him incredulously. He took off his glasses and blinked. It really was unexpected…
Another man suddenly yelled and stood up: “F*ck! Li Shenzhou! The perverted condition to trigger your profession was actually triggered?!! This is not scientific!!!”
Li Shenzhou pushed up his glasses: “Now you know? Idiot.” After that, he snorted with disdain, “A pig can fly!” (everything is possible.)
Bai Lian Hua felt depressed. Bai Lian Hua is very depressed. Bai Lian Hua is EXTREMELY depressed… cough, this is not because the author had to make up the number of words! [Serious face]
Bai Lian Hua proceeded to sigh for the hundred and twentieth time for the day…no wait, he just sighed again!
”Lian Hua, what’s wrong with you?” Chu Zhongtian couldn’t stand it and leaned over halfway to peer at the man who kept sighing.
”Don’t mention it!” The voice of the Bai Lian Hua was filled with emotion.
Bai Lian Hua really felt unfair. Although he was pinned on the forum for no reason, through this experience, he had gained a master, a disciple and gaming friend. It was a pretty good deal. But it seems like God finds him not pleasing to the eye and felt that he needed to suffer more. Simply put – Bai Lian Hua is in trouble again! Big trouble!
In the early hours of the next morning, he opened his character detail page, opened his bag, and wanted to change his damn Jiasha, rosary and Monk Staff back into his cute Defamed Emperor set:
[System prompt: [Defamed Emperor Top] is not compatible with your occupation and cannot be replaced. ]
[System Tip: [Defamed Emperor Bottoms] is not compatible with your occupation and cannot be replaced. ]
[System Tip: [Defamed Emperor Crown] is not compatible with your occupation and cannot be replaced. ]
[System Tip: [Defamed Emperor Bow and Arrow] is not compatible with your occupation and cannot be replaced. ]
Not compatible your brother-in-law! He is an archer! You give him a “[Jiasha: Defensive power +1 Main purpose of use: view, shame, show off], [“Rosary”: Mana +1 main purposes of use: view, shame, show off], and a “Monk staff”: Strength +1 Main purpose of use: view, shame, show off]…What can he use them for?! Who designed this game?! Come out and see this Laozi! He will destroy that persons chrysanthemum! – Although Bai Lian Hua may look like a weak shou, his nature was just like a strong gong ah!
At this time, Li Shenzhou raised his head and sneezed. “You bastard, lower the air-conditioning! If I can’t go to work tomorrow because of a cold, you guys are finished!”
