When Baiju and Xiao Yao came across Sun Daiyang unexpectedly, they had gained a little clue; Baiju's original inference was correct. One of the two things that sparked the incidents was some "animosity" towards the little fox.
"This thing," Xiao Yao stood aside with his arms folded, and pointed at Sun Daiyang, who was lying on the ground like a dead fish, a little disgusted.
Baiju just started tampering with Sun Daiyang's memory, erasing the time from taking the photos to confessing everything, and also giving him a hint to make him think that he was knocked out by dodgy talismans that backlashed.
Hearing Xiao Yao's arrangement, Baiju didn't have any comments. He nodded and asked, "What should I do with him?"
Sun Daiyang was indeed not a good person, but he couldn't be regarded as a vicious evil person. If he wasn't given the means, he couldn't have acted; but because of his malice, he was taken advantage of and the facts were that he almost caused two instances of large-scale bloodshed.
"He will be kept under supervision." Xiao Yao lowered his eyes and looked at the sigil on Sun Daiyang's arm that was gradually dissipating. His voice was very cold, "This kind of self-interested villain will make excuses for himself, thinking that what he has done was nothing more than trivial pranks. Unless they kill intentionally, they will always consider themselves innocent."
"If this guy is just an ordinary human, and the disasters didn't happen, he would be let go with a warning at most; but he touched the door of the practitioning world, and his temperament is problematic. Even if he didn't commit a crime, he would be listed as a concern." Xiao Yao sighed and said, "Sooner or later, this kind of person always reveals themselves...even if it gets caught before it escalates, it's at best still a small incident. He has no abilities, but people with them will take the initiative to find him." If your mind is not strong, or your mind is not right, unless you correct your path, you will fall off it.
Baiju couldn't understand the twists and turns, and he was confused, "Since you can predict that he will commit a crime, why not just lock him up?"
Xiao Yao waved his hand and said, "This is the law. You can't be condemned for a crime until the possibility is confirmed, otherwise it is unnecessary."
After thinking for a while, Xiao Yao changed his words into something an old white dog could understand clearly, "Think about it, I can't just judge that you have eaten a little demon just because you’re hungry and like to eat the little demons."
Baiju touched his stomach slightly, feeling it rumble, "Oh... Yao Yao, can I eat the evil little demons?"
Xiao Yao was taken aback, "...ah."
Baiju's attention was focused on eating, and the more he thought about it, the more he felt guilty, and he quickly added, "I haven't eaten any little demons since I came down from the mountain... The puppet core was edible, but it tasted bad, and it was a clue, so I didn't eat it...
"This, this should be all right?"
Xiao Yao didn't know how to explain to Baiju, who was very seriously considering the example he made up randomly.
The awkward silence lasted for several seconds before Xiao Yao spoke up, "Bai’ge... you’re actually really hungry, aren’t you."
Baiju looked at him eagerly and nodded very honestly.
Xiao Yao covered his face in frustration.
How can this old dog be so cute...
Of course it also made his heart ache.
Xiao Yao couldn't help asking Baiju, "What can make you full?" It wasn’t a problem to be hungry all the time but if the old white dog needed he could find some spiritual fruit or something for him and pad his stomach.
Baiju replied quite honestly, "Something with an aura, or something with devilish energy, ghost energy, an evil spirit, or lots of resentment is fine. If there’s nothing like that, then something highly poisonous is fine, but it doesn't taste good."
Fearing that he was not careful enough, Baiju added, "The wild animals flying in the mountains, rivers, lakes, seas, and spiritual plants, including spiritual soil and minerals. Poisons, monsters, and humans are all edible."
Nothing he mentioned was a secret, and Baiju didn’t intend to keep it from anyone. It was strange for a big demon like him to say that he couldn't eat something. Whether he was allowed to eat it and whether he could eat it were two different things.
Having thought everything through thoroughly, Baiju revealed his diet in front of Xiao Yao, but in fact he was still a little worried.
He wanted to show Xiao Yao the threatening side of himself, and let his little ward understand him thoroughly, but he was afraid that such behavior would push the human who had finally gotten close to him away. The old white dog had no choice but to suffer some losses and little by little, he stretched out his tentative dog paw, teetering on the edge of complete candor.
However, in fact, Xiao Yao, who heard what Baiju could eat, didn’t feel that the old dog was cruel. He listened to the wide range of this guy’s diet and his first reaction was that the dog was pretty easy to raise.
It may be that the dog himself was worried about his behavior and restrained his appetite after waking up in modern times. In fact, there were a lot of things that he could eat, but didn't attempt to take.
Xiao Yao could guess, even with his eyes closed, that the old dog had been on the mountain for so long, and had probably only eaten poisonous flora. After he came down from the mountain, he probably didn’t want to touch poison again.
Seeing that Xiao Yao was silent, Baiju was a little anxious, "Yao Yao...it's okay, I don’t need to ever eat. Theoretically speaking, I have already cultivated to my present level, and there are no repercussions if I don't eat anymore..."
"Bai’ge," Xiao Yao asked him teasingly, "Is poison delicious?"
Baiju paused, inspecting Xiao Yao's expression, he hesitated and said, "It's also okay."
Xiao Yao, "Just tell the truth."
Baiju was very honest, "It's unpalatable."
Then he immediately added, "But I can eat it."
Xiao Yao smiled and said, "What is delicious? Be honest."
Baiju looked at Xiao Yao when he heard the words, but didn’t speak.
Before he could answer, Xiao Yao gently pulled Baiju's sleeve and coaxed him, "Tell the truth, it's okay."
Baiju seemed to have learnt how to speak like a mouse from the children, "...you, you look delicious."
Xiao Yao, "......"
Xiao Yao wiped his face, never expected that this dog would tell such a straightforward truth.
He knew that his life was more precious than gold. He was full of spiritual energy, and was also born with Yin and Yang eyes. Even if he hadn’t cultivated, he was a walking top-quality barbecue in the eyes of demons and ghosts; for this old white dog whose strength could crush him, his fears didn’t cover his "deliciousness" at all.
He now suspected that the dog might swallow him whole when nuzzling him.
Xiao Yao cleared his throat, "Except for humans."
Baiju touched his nose, "Little foxes and the others look delicious too."
Xiao Yao added another clause, "...except for the little demons registered with the Demon Management Bureau."
Baiju whispered, "The spiritual soil and spiritual plants in your greenhouse..."
Xiao Yao's face was expressionless. "......"
Baiju begged for mercy and leaned forward to hug Xiao Yao, "Yao Yao...stop asking." Baiju was embarrassed to tell the truth, knowing that he must avoid these things that he was obviously not allowed to eat.
Xiao Yao allowed Baiju to hug and shake him several times, but couldn't help but laugh out loud, raising his head he bumped into Baiju's chin and said helplessly, "It's really hard on you."
Baiju blinked and answered him sternly, "It's not hard. I didn't eat anything before, and no one used to cook for me specially."
Baiju spoke very sincerely, and after softening his voice, he became terribly languid, "Yao Yao, you’re really amazing."
Xiao Yao had almost gotten used to his clingy and childish nature. He raised his hand and rubbed his hair, and his expression softened uncomfortably, "Okay, Bai’ge, let go, you...when our restrictions are lifted, I'll take you somewhere you can hunt."
Baiju's eyes lit up, and he immediately let go of Xiao Yao. He stretched his body slightly away, and looked down at Xiao Yao's eyes, "Really?"
Xiao Yao laughed, "Really, I won't lie to you."
Baiju suddenly squinted his eyes with a smile, and the little fangs between his lips were dazzling.
Xiao Yao shook his head and raised his hand to touch the tip of Baiju's teeth. His fingers felt a little soft and in the next instant, he saw Baiju leaning back slightly, avoiding his fingers.
Xiao Yao was a little embarrassed.
It... it did seem a bit inappropriate to reach out to touch someone's teeth...he felt a bit out of line.
Withdrawing his hand, Xiao Yao wanted to laugh and gloss over the matter, but Baiju grabbed the palm of his hand at once.
The old white dog twisted his eyebrows and held Xiao Yao's hand in front of him. He pinched his fingers to check them carefully, and then heaved a sigh of relief, "It's okay, it's okay, the skin isn’t broken."
The serious old dog didn't share his concerns at all, holding his little ward's hand with lingering fear, he educated him, "Yao Yao, my teeth can't be touched randomly; not just mine, but also other demons. These kinds of fangs that cannot be put away are our weapons. The concentrated qi on them is likely to directly damage anything when they sense an obstacle, it’s just a conditioned reflex....If it isn’t deliberately controlled, then even if I’m asleep they might hurt you."
After finishing a long string of words, the old white dog suddenly held his breath; Facing the small smile in Xiao Yao's eyes for a while, the old white dog let go of Xiao Yao's hand and whispered a question, "Was I too strict?"
Xiao Yao shook his head, "Bai’ge, you’re too gentle."
The old white dog was a little shy, pursed his lips and breathed a sigh of relief. His little ward didn't think he was strict.
The two fell into a fascinating silence. After several seconds, Xiao Yao wanted to change the topic, when he heard a little rustling movement around him; looking back, it was Sun Daiyang, who had been forgotten by them, and was twisting his eyebrows, seeming to sober up.
A white light flashed and Baiju subconsciously released a spell. Sun Daiyang stiffened and once again lay on the ground like a dead fish and fell unconscious.
Xiao Yao, "......"
Xiao Yao was embarrassed to admit that he had forgotten the existence of this thing, "Ahem, Bai’ge, let's throw him in the car."
Baiju nodded, "Okay."
Xiao Yao felt that he was talking a lot of nonsense today, "Leave it to Hou Jing, let Hou Jing contact Qu Lang, and then we don't have to worry about it."
Baiju nodded again, everything his little ward said was fine.
Xiao Yao looked at Baiju's profile and smiled, "Then you can go and play with the children, therapy dog Bai’ge."
Baiju was taken aback for a moment, then couldn't help but lift the corners of his mouth, his gaze floated in the direction of the orphanage, his tone of voice was brisk, "Yeah, I can go and play with them."
