At that moment, everyone present opened their eyes wide as they could not believe what they were seeing.
What…what was he doing?
Is he bullying a kid on the street?
Is that guy crazy? Does he want to be thrown in jail moments after he arrived?
Many were stunned. All of them had thought that Xu Que was trying to be a good guy, buying sugar-coated haws for the kid, consoling the kid so that he could obtain Good Points.
Who would’ve thought that he would eat the haws himself, flaunting them in front of the kid!
What the heck! He’s so shameless!
They had never seen someone like that. Even if they had, those people were in jail.
Everyone stared at Xu Que. Even the Black-Robed Elder looked bewildered. The old man was taken aback, but he was the only one who quickly recovered. He slapped his forehead in regret, “I knew that he was bound to cause trouble!” However, the old man heaved a sigh of relief at the same time. What Xu Que did was not severe enough to affect him and his granddaughter, and so he decided not to be hung up about it.
Uwaa… The child wailed when he finally realized what had happened. He cried louder than before. He was crying from indignation, having dropped his sugar-coated haws.
“You…how could you do that? Bullying a child!” The child’s parents scolded Xu Que as they glared at him.
Everyone’s eyes lit up. They realized that if they stood up for the kid and taught Xu Que a lesson, they would be doing a good deed too! Those who managed to think of it quickly tried to rush forward.
“Eh, wait for a second. Something’s wrong!” Someone suddenly exclaimed. Pointing at the Good and Evil Jade Tile hanging from Xu Que’s hips, that person looked shell-shocked. “His…his Good Points! Why did they increase by 20 points?”
Everyone was stupefied at that information. They turned to Xu Que and were stunned.
Not only did the Evil Points on Xu Que’s Good and Evil Jade Tile not increase, his Good Points were raised by 20 points instead!
“What…what the f*ck is going on?”
“What the hell, that’s not fair! Why did his Good points increase despite him doing bad things?”
“Did his Good and Bad Jade Tile malfunction?”
Many began to holler. They were angry as they all felt that it was unfair.
One bystander walked up and yelled, “Constable, where’s the Constable? I request to check the reason for the increase in his Good points!”
“Yeah, that’s right! Someone get the Constable!”
“Constable, we request to see his Good and Evil points record!”
Many more began to yell about the same thing. Someone even ran to fetch the Constable.
Beyond the crowd, the old man turned to the Black-Robed Elder, confused, “Senior Brother, are there even Constables here?”
The Black-Robed Elder nodded, “People may apply to be a Constable or a Jailer when their Good points exceed a specific limit. They might even take on roles such as Jail Wardens, which would grant them extra Good points every year!”
“I see!” The old man nodded and looked once again at Xu Que. He was also very curious about how Xu Que had obtained those Good points.
However, Xu Que himself was also perplexed.
What the hell?
This Act-Tough Saint was trying to do some bad, but he got Good points in return instead? Are they trying to guide him back to decency…no, guide him back to a path of kindness?
“Make way. Everyone make way! The Constable’s here!” Someone shouted in the crowd. A cultivator led a lady over. She was dressed in a black-and-gold outfit, with the word Constable embroidered on her chest. She was a beautiful lady with exquisite facial features. She carried an air of decisiveness and had a good figure. Her beauty was a grade higher than that of the old man’s granddaughter. Most important, her cultivation stage was also not to be belittled. She had reached the first level of the Human Celestial Stage, and her strength was comparable to the Jade Lake Saint Bai Cailing!
“Constable Lin, please uphold justice for us. This fellow just bullied a child, and yet he received Good points for what he did. We suspect that there’s something wrong with his Good and Evil Jade Tile!”
“Yeah, it doesn’t make sense at all! An investigation is necessary!”
“It’s too unfair!”
Everyone began to crowd around the Constable as soon as they saw her coming. They then began to chatter and filled her in.
The female Constable understood what happened moments later. She frowned and looked at Xu Que, asking sternly, “Were you the one who bullied the child on the street?”
“That’s right. It was me!” Xu Que stuck out his chest in pride.
Everyone’s mouths twitched.
F*ck, how could he say it out loud that he bullied a child, and be so proud and unremorseful about it?
“You bullied a child, and your Kind points increased?” the female Constable asked again.
“That’s right. My Kind points did increase! To be honest, I don’t think that there’s a need to investigate this. I could already guess the reason why!” Xu Que nodded and smiled mildly.
“You could…guess? Enlighten us then. Why do you think this happened?” asked the female Constable.
Everyone fixed their eyes on Xu Que, wanting to hear his answer.
Xu Que smirked and ran his hand over his fringe, smiling, “Of course it’s due to my good looks! That’s right. You heard me loud and clear. This place is not just any Good and Evil Village, but a Good and Evil Village where people are judged by their looks! Only those who are good-looking have this privilege, where everything they do is a good deed!”
Everyone’s faces darkened instantly.
Everything he does is a good deed, so long as he is good-looking?
What was he implying?
On the flip side, was he saying that they are ugly?
F*ck, how could someone this brazen exist in this world?
“Hmph! Nonsense! I will know the real reason once I check your records!” The female Constable scoffed and took out a Jade Slip. Spell inscriptions covered the Jade Tile, which emitted an ancient aura. The female Constable gathered two fingers together and produced a small ball of True Core strength. She then pressed her fingers on one tip of the Jade Slip.
A bright light shone brilliantly from the Jade Slip and got whiter and whiter by the second. It then refracted toward Xu Que and speedily transformed into a glowing ancient book. The pages began to flip frantically. Mere seconds later, a short paragraph from a page projected into the air for everyone to see.
“Villager number 503 of the Good and Evil Village has received 20 points of Good points! Reason for award: He saw what was right and acted courageously, punishing the child who littered on the street, destroying the environment of the village.”
A simple sentence, but the entire village fell into a deathly silence. Everyone was stunned, including the female Constable who looked shocked.
He saw what is right and acted courageously?
That’s a valid reason?
“F*ck!” Xu Que suddenly cursed, with a defeated look on his face, “What right do they have to say that I saw what is right and acted courageously? I did it purely to bully that child! Why is it so difficult to commit some bad deeds these days! I’m pissed!”
Everyone present almost vomited blood when they heard Xu Que.
Hell, can this fellow keep his shamelessness in check? He’s taking an undeserved gain for granted!
At the same time, a System notification rang from within Xu Que’s mind. He had acted tough unconsciously and earned a staggering 20,000 Acting Tough points in one sitting!
Tss! Xu Que inhaled sharply, and his eyes lit up.
While the Good and Evil village has got no treasures, its residents are all powerhouses! There’s no better place to Act Tough than here!
Xu Que lifted his head and declared determinedly, “Atrocious! I don’t believe that I can’t commit even a single evil deed today! I’m doing evil not to prove just how bad of a person I am, but to prove that there’s more to me than my beautiful face!”
