Of course, the largest sum was still from Paul, but there were still small bits of Affection Points trickling in from all around too. It looked like there were quite a few righteous people in the world after all.
With such thoughts in mind, Roel’s mood grew a little better. He turned over to Paul with a smile and said.
“It’s nothing much. I just can’t stand it when others parading their strength around to oppress those weaker than them.”
“Big brother Roel…”
“I should be younger than you though,” said Roel as he reached out and helped Paul back up to his feet.
