The Emperor was easily persuaded and immediately ordered the construction of the White Deer Pagoda. Since Taoist Chongxu was the only one who knew what the mystical deer looked like and how to attract it back, he had an absolute say in deciding how the pagoda should be built.

Back to the present. Shen Mian walked to her desk without saying a word and started moving all her school stuff into the backpack. Jiang Ruo tried to greet her with a smile, but received no response.
Although the twins had seen the livestream of Shen Mian’s fake suicide attempt, they did not recognize her. On the screen, Shen Mian was standing on the top of the building, far enough to blur her face, so they did not realize that this girl was the one who started that huge drama.
Ji Wujiong snorted with a face full of disdain: “You want to pay me to teach you stuff? Meng Qiqi, what do you think of me?!”
“Forget it if you don’t want to.” Meng Qi narrowed her eyes and resolutely turned her gaze away.
As soon as Wenwen told Si Yue that, he regretted it a bit. Still, he wasn’t lying. He had now grown up and was no longer as insecure as his past self. His mother loved him so much, and he knew she would never let him feel abandoned just because she had a new family.
Furthermore, he could see that Uncle Lin was mature, dependable, and surely knew how to pamper his mother. Although he still preferred to have his mother all for himself, he also hoped she could have someone she could depend on.
Two powerful spiritual pressures swept over him, yet Shen Changyuan didn’t move an inch. His posture was stable as he cupped his hands and gave the two a greeting, “Younger generation Shen Changyuan greets two seniors.”
That’s right. Shen Changyuan, who remembered every inch of the little cub’s appearance by heart, naturally did not fail to guess the identity of the two, as they both looked very similar to her… or rather, it should be said that the cub was very similar to them, so they must be the Father and Daddy she always spoke about.
Li Chengjing could understand why the Emperor was partial to the Second Prince and pitied Empress Yang who had accompanied him for many years. But being able to understand didn’t mean he could accept it.
The Zhong family could let go of the hatred in order to have a peaceful life, but Li Chengjing couldn’t.
He could never let go.
“Mom…” Seeing his mother, Wenwen regained a bit of energy, but he was still far from his usual liveliness.
Fu Yunruo took Wenwen’s hand, “What happened, Wenwen?”
When Lu Yaoyao was deep in slumber, a gleaming black light suddenly emitted from her bed. As if having consciousness, the black light revolved a few times in mid-air before diving toward the sleeping little girl on the bed.
The black light was just about to enter Lu Yaoyao’s consciousness when a tall figure suddenly appeared. As the black mist surrounding the figure dissipated, he waved his hand, and the black light in the air disappeared instantly.

After learning that the person who took the money was not Tong Yi, Director Li’s blood pressure dropped significantly. He then took out his mobile phone and transferred the money to Tong Yi before asking, “Is Jiang Li short of money recently?”
Last week, Tong Yi also came to redeem more than 6,000 yuan. Moreover, in two days, the commendation ceremony for the mock exam would also be held, in which Jiang Li would receive her special scholarship money of 8,000 yuan. It stood to reason that she shouldn’t be that penniless!
Ji Wujiong chuckled in disdain, “Little girl, has your master never told you? The red foxes and the black tortoises are incompatible by nature. No matter how hard you try, at best, you could only learn one-third of his skills.”
