Chapter 81

Chapter 81 – I had to be greedy for the sake of the people!

So that day, Guo Shaoshuai used his brute force and killed people in all directions.

Leading his group of beggars, he defeated the beggars from other places and won the ownership of the treasure land.

Everyone was very happy.

“Little Shuai, this is yours!”

“I didn’t expect you to look so white and tender, but fight so fiercely!”

“You did a great job, let you choose first when the food is distributed!”

“We promise you will eat until you’re completely satisfied!”

Guo Shaoshuai was a little impatient: “Hey brothers, what place are you talking about? What delicious food is there for me to enjoy later?”

“I tell you, this thing is really delicious! I’ve only eaten it once, and I can’t forget it all my life!”

“It’s so delicious that many rich people don’t have the opportunity to eat it!”

“In short, you’re lucky today! Haha!”

Guo Shaoshuai was getting more and more expectant.

Unconsciously, they came to the back door of a wealthy mansion in a high spirit.

An old beggar happily patted Guo Shaoshuai’s shoulder and said with a smile, “This is the place I was talking about! When it’s time to eat, there are many leftovers in it, and the taste is really… I guarantee you’ll forget it after you’ve eaten it once!”

“Yes, I’ve been to the homes of many rich people in the capital, and I’ve eaten their food! But to say the best, it’s this one!” Another beggar said, licking his lips after speaking.

“That’s why this has become a place where beggars must fight!”.

“Is that so?” Guo Shaoshuai was getting more and more expectant, and asked again, “What is this place? What is delicious? Can you tell me about it?”

“Of course!” The old beggar laughed. “I’ll tell you! This is the residence of the new top scholar, Lin Beifan! He is greatly favored by the Empress, and the Imperial kitchen sends fresh, top-grade ingredients every day! Since there are few people in his household, they can’t finish everything and we can take advantage of that!”

“We are indirectly, eating the imperial kitchen’s dishes!”

“What the empress eats, we eat!”

“Many rich people can’t enjoy it! Haha!”

At this time, Guo Shaoshuai was already shocked: “What did you say? You said this is the home of the new top scholar Lin Beifan? And we are here to eat his leftovers?”

The old beggar patted Guo Shaoshuai’s shoulder: “Yes! Are you excited, are you happy?”

Guo Shaoshuai: “…”

Excited my ass!

Happy my ass!

If I had known that I was fighting for the leftovers of Lin Beifan, the dog official, I wouldn’t have done it!

I am the contemporary genius of Iron Sword Sect, Guo Shaoshuai, who is famous in martial world for his life’s mission of eliminating evil and promoting good and killing corrupt officials!

And today, I actually came to fight for the leftovers of Lin Beifan, the dog official!

Eating his leftovers!

If this gets out, what face will I have left?

At that moment, his face turned black and he wanted to turn around and leave. But at that moment, the back door opened.

Dali was carrying a big bucket of leftovers.

The beggars’ eyes lit up and they rushed over. Guo Shaoshuai, who was about to leave, was dragged forward.

“Wow! You came out so early today!”

“There’s still so much food left. We’re lucky today. Haha!”

“I could smell it from far away!”

“Today is really great!”

Dali said, “Eat as much as you want, but don’t make a mess here. I don’t want to have to clean it again when I come back!”

“Don’t worry, Dali. We’ll eat everything clean!”

Dali nodded and went back inside. He closed the door.

After Dali left, the beggars went crazy and couldn’t wait to put their hands in the garbage can and grab something to eat.

“Wait, everyone. Don’t be in a hurry! It was Shaoshuai who led us to defeat the other beggars. He deserves the most credit, so let Shaoshuai choose first!” The old beggar shouted.

The old beggar was very respected. After he said that, everyone stopped and looked at Guo Shaoshuai.

“Shaoshuai, you eat first, and then we’ll eat!”

“I’m not going to eat. You guys eat!”

“If you don’t eat, how can I have the face to eat?”

Guo Shaoshuai shook his head again: “Don’t bother me. I absolutely won’t eat a bite of this food from that dog official Lin Beifan!”

“Give it to him to eat!”

Suddenly, a chicken leg appeared in Guo Shaoshuai’s mouth.
Guo Shaoshuai couldn’t help but chew twice.

The beggars asked eagerly, “How does it taste?”

“Oh my god, it’s really delicious!”

Guo Shaoshuai chewed with great relish and said, “It’s soft and juicy. The fragrance is overwhelming. When I take a bite, my mouth is full of oil. It’s so delicious. I’ve never had such a delicious chicken leg in my life!”

“I’m telling you, this chicken is mine. Nobody else can fight me for it!”

The beggars were overjoyed: “Great!”

So all the chicken was left for Guo Shaoshuai to eat.

Guo Shaoshuai took a bite and wanted another!

He took a second bite and wanted a third!

He took a third bite and wanted a fourth!

He just couldn’t stop!

After he finished eating, Guo Shaoshuai was satisfied and also speechless!

Facing the wall, he shed tears of regret: “I never thought I, Guo Shaoshuai, would one day compete with others for food from that dog official Lin Beifan. And I actually ate it so deliciously… What a shame!”

“I, Guo Shaoshuai, have become the person I hate the most!”

“But this is just an accident!”

Guo Shaoshuai opened his eyes and his face became determined: “Starting from tomorrow, I must resist Lin Beifan’s temptation! No matter what leftovers he offers, I will not give in! I must remain poor and humble, and never be moved by wealth!”

“I cannot be defeated by weapons, I cannot be corrupted by wealth and status. Be a man who is upright and down-to-earth!”

At this moment, a voice came from afar, “Shaoshuai, are you still going to eat chicken tomorrow?”

Guo Shaoshuai blurted out, “I’ll have duck tomorrow, thank you!”

“Okay, I’ll leave you some duck meat tomorrow!”

Guo Shaoshuai: “…”
On the other side.

Because Mo Rushuang was well-fed and well-nourished at the Linbei Fan house, her injuries recovered quickly.

It was impossible to hide the fact that there was one more person in the house, so Mo Rushuang was often found by the little princess who was always begging for food and drink.

However, this little girl’s thoughts were extraordinary.

She thought that what the other party did was a heroic deed. Not only did she not report it, but she also brought good medicine from her house.

As a result, Mo Rushuang recovered even faster and could walk on the ground.

Everyone here treated her well, and Mo Rufeng felt the warmth she had been missing for a long time and was very attached to it.

In particular, there is one person, with a dignified appearance, erudition, extraordinary eloquence, and great concern for her.

He took good care of her and left an indelible mark in her heart.

But when she thinks that the other party is the most hated corrupt official, or a traitor, she feels sad…

So one day, she came to the study and looked at Lin Beifan who was writing.

She couldn’t help asking, “Mr. Lin, when I came to the capital, people outside were saying that you were a huge corrupt official who has taken countless of money!”

Lin Beifan raised his head and looked at her calmly. “There is such a thing. Is there any problem?”

“Why be so corrupt?”

Mo Rushuang walked closer and looked at Lin Beifan’s clear eyes. She said seriously, “You have the empress’s favor, you are promoted, you are rich and honorable, you can’t enjoy it enough. Why do you want to be so corrupt? You know, what you are corrupting is the people’s money! If you are more corrupt, the people will suffer more!”

“When did I ever corrupt the people’s money?” Lin Beifan retorted.

“You said it yourself, you corrupted the money of the Former Minister of the Ministry of Households, the money of the officials, and the money of the students in the Imperial Academy!” Mo Rushuang said.

“If I’m corrupting the money of the Former Minister of the Ministry of Households, the money of the officials, and the money of the students in the Imperial Academy, what does it have to do with the people? When did I ever corrupt the people’s money?” Lin Beifan retorted.

“This…” Mo Rushuang was dumbfounded.

Think about it carefully, it seems that the other party really didn’t corrupt a penny from the people!

What he was corrupting was the money of corrupt officials, or the money of people related to corrupt officials!

It seems that he didn’t even touch the people at all!

“But it’s wrong to be corrupt…” Her voice weakened a little.

“What’s wrong with it?”

Lin Beifan asked again, “Everyone in the court is corrupt. Why can’t I? If they do corrupt, why don’t I have a chance to corrupt? If I don’t corrupt, should I leave it to others to corrupt? Since that’s the case, why shouldn’t I put it in my own pocket?”

Upon careful thought, she realized that the other party made a valid point. The entire court was corrupt, so why couldn’t he be?

Mo Rushuang was greatly shaken in her heart! Her entire worldview and moral outlook were in shambles!

“So, I have to be corrupt! For the sake of the common people, I don’t want to be corrupt, but I have to be!”

Lin Bei Fan shook his head, “At least compared to them, I am already upright and honest. I haven’t taken a single penny from the common people. I have a clear conscience!”

Mo Rushuang opened her mouth but had no words to say in response. There was a moment of silence.

Mo Rushuang asked, “But Mr. Lin, why did you sell out the country?”

“When did I sell out the country?” Lin Bei Fan asked, looking up.

“Just before this, when the envoy from Darro Country came to the capital to discuss tribute matters!”

Mo Rushuang said, “I heard that you took the bribery of the envoy of Darro country, and argued in the court, finally wiped out the 3 million tribute that was agreed upon, and also opened the trade port to promote the development of trade in Darro country! There are also scholars sent to Darro country to set up schools and preach…”

“These conditions are of no benefit to Great Wu, but are beneficial to Darro without any harm!”

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.
