Chapter 39

Chapter 39: Rescue the Urgent, Help the Poor with Intelligence!

During this time, Xiao Cui and Dali didn’t want to be a third wheel, so they left after finishing their meal.

Only Lin Beifan and his wife were left in the lobby.

Because of the urgency last night, they didn’t have the time to talk and had many doubts in their hearts. Now they finally opened up.

It was not until now that Lin Beifan found out that his wife was actually born into a family of high officials and was a well-known lady.

However, due to her father’s corruption, her family fell apart and she ended up in the red-light district.

Therefore, she hated corrupt officials very much.

Once she found out that Lin Beifan was not a corrupt official, but a clean and honest official who served the people, all her grievances disappeared and she completely fell in love with him!

“How lucky I am that fate brought me to meet you!” Li Shi Shi felt so fortunate.

She had originally wanted to get rid of the harassment from high official’s son, so she found Lin Beifan, who was a well-connected person in front of the Empress, to be her backer.

She never expected to find the best man in the world!

He was highly educated, knowledgeable, handsome and had a high moral character, and he was also good to her…

She felt so happy!

After living a wasted life and using up all her luck, she finally exchanged it for the best husband in this life!

If other sisters knew about this, they would surely envy her!

“I am lucky to have met you too, but following me may be tough for you in the future. You may have to follow me and run away, even risking your life. Are you scared?” Lin Beifan smiled.

“Meeting you is also my good fortune!” Lin Beifan smiled. “But following me, you will suffer. You may have to go on the run with me at any time, and we might even lose our heads. Are you afraid?”

“Husband, don’t say that. I will follow you wherever you go. If things go wrong in future, I will accompany you in roaming the world, even if we become a pair of fugitive lovers. If we unfortunately lose our heads, I will accompany you in walking the yellow spring road to the underworld, and we will be together all the way until the next life as husband and wife! I am yours in life and in death!” Li Shi Shi tightly held Lin Beifan’s hand.

Lin Beifan was moved and held her in his arms without hesitation.

He thought to himself that for the sake of his beloved wife, he would have to be a bit more corrupt in order to protect himself!

After dinner, they simply tidied up and went back to their room.
Of course, their nights were full of passion.

In the following days, Lin Beifan would attend early morning court meetings, go to work at the Imperial Academy and earn money from those officials, and come back to spend time with his wife at night. Their lives were very routine.

However, sometimes, in the dead of night, he would secretly go out to give out money.

But, the amount of money he gave out was getting less and less.

At first, he could give away 100,000, then it became only 50,000 the next morning, and then less than 10,000 the next day.

On the fourth day, Li Shi Shi saw Lin Beifan taking a pile of treasures out and then bringing them all back.

“My husband, why…”

Lin Beifan sighed and said, “It’s already saturated! Since becoming a night hero, I have dispersed nearly 3 million taels, basically taking care of all the poor people in the capital! Each person receives varying amounts, but enough to improve their lives and prevent them from falling into poverty. Any more than that would be too much!”

“Why is that?” Li Shi Shi asked, puzzled.

“Because human nature is complex! If I give them money once, they will be grateful to me! Even when I give it a second time, they will still be grateful. But by the third or fourth time, they will no longer be grateful to me and will develop a habit of asking for money without working or striving for improvement. They become lazy and will no longer be of use. If I don’t give them money, not only will they not be grateful, they will also blame me!”

Lin Beifan sighed, “Therefore, we should save those in need, not those in poverty, and focus on lifting them out of poverty through education and intelligence.”

Li Shi Shi suddenly understood, “What you said is absolutely right, my husband!”

Thinking again about the phrase Lin Beifan had said, “saving those in need, not those in poverty, and focusing on lifting them out of poverty through education and intelligence,” it was so brief but thought-provoking!

Li Shi Shi looked at Lin Beifan with admiration and her eyes sparkled.

He truly was her husband!

“But what should we do with the money?”

Lin Beifan threw the silver in his hand on the ground, “Let’s keep it for now, there will be opportunities to disperse it in the future.”

Just then, a white figure suddenly appeared in front of them.

“How about giving this money to me?”

Lin Beifan felt a chill go down his spine.

All of his hairs stood up!

He was, after all, a pinnacle master of the innate realm.

In the martial world, he would be considered an elder or a master-level character with profound strength

But this person had appeared before him, and he hadn’t noticed anything!

“A ghost!” Li Shi Shi was so frightened that she clung onto Lin Beifan.

“Don’t be afraid, she’s not a ghost, she’s just skilled in martial arts!” Lin Beifan comforted Li Shi Shi and looked at the white figure with suspicion. “Who are you, and what are you doing in my house?”

“Don’t be afraid! If I wanted to kill you, I would have done it long ago! But I’ve been watching you these past few days, running around for the people with a pure heart, so I haven’t made a move!”

The tone of the other person’s voice was calm and had a charismatic quality. It was quite pleasant to listen to.

However, when Lin Beifan heard those words, he felt even more scared!

In the dangerous world of high martial arts, Lin Beifan traversed and found himself bound to a corrupt official system. It seemed that the only way to become stronger was through corruption – a ridiculous notion, but one that he had to follow nonetheless. He found himself embezzling, accepting bribes, and using his power for personal gain, becoming a despised and hated corrupt official. Yet, secretly, he distributed his ill-gotten gains to the people, leaving nothing for himself. He carried the weight of his bad reputation while still trying to make the world a better place. The empress, who knew the truth, shed tears and said, “My dear, I’m sorry for the injustice done to you. Come to my palace tonight.” The intelligent and beautiful women who knew the truth declared, “No matter how the world sees you, we are willing to stand by your side, through thick and thin!” The martial women of the Jianghu who knew the truth vowed, “If they want to take down Lin, they’ll have to get through us first!” Others were left in shock, “He’s clearly a corrupt official, why are you all protecting him?”
