I'm Really Not the Demon God's Lackey Chapter 28: Philosopher

Hearing Silver’s glum voice and seeing her imploring silver eyes, ‘Life Mentor’ Lin Jie couldn’t help wondering if this dream just happened to suit his tastes.

The tranquil and soothing ambience of this romantic hill of irises was straight out of a fairytale. On top of that, there was a gorgeous lady for him to perform one of his favorite activities—dishing out chicken soup.

This dream is beyond beautiful!

Assuming that Lin Jie’s ultimate dream of possessing all the books in the world had already been realized, then dishing out chicken soup to encourage others and lead them out of frustrations and difficult predicaments was another favorite pastime of his.

Seeing faces fraught with worry or those down in the dumps regain their positivity as if they had rediscovered their hopes and dreams would leave Lin Jie with a warm fuzzy feeling of self-satisfaction.

According to Lin Jie, there was no such thing as pure and simple kind-heartedness in the world. Most of the time when Lin Jie helped others without asking for anything in return, he was actually gaining satisfaction from seeing the reactions of these people.

To put it simply, helping others in this way made Lin Jie happy. It was just regrettable that he only had a few regular customers that would return in fixed intervals due to his bookstore’s dismal business, resulting in him missing out on a lot of joy in life.

Thus, being asked for help in his dream immediately appealed to Lin Jie’s desire to dish out a dose of chicken soup.

Lin Jie pondered for a moment. Since this was a dream, he didn’t have to be that cautious and thus, he extended a hand and said, “How about sitting down and having a chat?”

A handshake, the universal symbol of expressing friendliness should be the most appropriate method here, Lin Jie thought to himself.

Silver had a slightly bewildered look on her face as she eyed Lin Jie’s hand and hesitated. Finally, she raised her own hand and gently placed it in his palm.

Soft, yet ice-cold.

This was what Lin Jie immediately felt. He tightened his grip on the lady’s hand, shook it, and sat down together on the flower bed where she had been lying on previously.

Lin Jie casually sat cross-legged and decided to first understand more about this “person in the dream” before he could tailor-make some chicken soup to soothe her soul.

“Have you always been alone in this dream?” asked Lin Jie.

Silver tilted her head, her long hair falling to cover the side of her face. “No one has ever come in before, nor has anyone been able to enter. You are the first.”
