Chapter 155: Well-Deserved (Part one)
“Xu Cheng, you know the evaluation at the Dragon Division has always been very strict. Last time when the three of you went to the mission to blow up that foreign genetic lab, you barely came back. This time, you won’t have Luo Yi and Li Wei’s help, so how could it be easy? You might even sacrifice yourself on the mission.” The instructor hoped for him to back away from the challenge.
Xu Cheng: “I know, but joining the Dragon Division has been my lifelong wish.”
The instructor sighed. “Fine, but I might not be able to get you a tryout opportunity. However, you might get spotted by them by performing really well at the 36 Army Drill; that’s possible too.”
Xu Cheng: “I know, so I will come back to participate in the 36 Army Drill. Just save me a spot on your 10-men team.”
Instructor: “Okay, I will save you one. Since you want to go, then just come back early to build some synergy with your comrades.”
Xu Cheng: “Alright, I will take care of the things over here fast.”
After hanging up, Xu Cheng felt slightly happier.
At the Shen Family House, Lin Lei obviously had other intentions in staying behind. He needed to observe and see if Shen Yao had fallen in love with Xu Chen to the hopeless level of severity. The more Shen Yao liked Xu Cheng, the less likely that she could stay friends with Lin Chuxue when she finds out about the two’s marriage. Anyone would be embarrassed and angry if their best friend didn’t tell them about the person they married, not to mention how she also had a crush on him.
Shen Yao was a smart woman. She also had some plans in mind, which was to subtly probe from the side and see if Lin Chuxue really had no relationship with Xu Cheng,
Lin Chuxue was so pretty, and if Xu Cheng really grew up with her, it would be impossible if he never had a crush on her, which did worry Shen Yao. She still remembered Xu Cheng saying that he had someone that he liked, and Shen Yao was quite worried whether the person in Xu Cheng’s heart was Lin Chuxue.
When Shen Yao brought Lin Lei up to see his room, she anxiously asked, “Oh right, I heard you and your sister both lived in Britain before, how did you guys meet Xu Cheng?”
Lin Lei laughed and said, “Don’t you know Brother Cheng also lived in Britain before?”
Shen Yao asked curiously, “Oh? I know he came from a single-parent home, and he was raised up by his father. How did he get to Britain?”
“Uncle Xu brought Brother Cheng to our house in Britain. I heard Uncle Xu was in some trouble in Huaxia and was afraid that it would affect Brother Cheng’s living quality. So, Brother Cheng grew up in Britain and he only came back to Huaxia a few years ago,” Lin Lei said.
Shen Yao finally understood. No wonder Xu Cheng never talked about his past before.
“So, you siblings are both very close to Xu Cheng?” Shen Yao paused for a moment before asking.
“Sister Shen, do you want to ask how my sister’s relationship is with Brother Cheng?” Lin Lei smiled and asked.
Shen Yao’s face slightly became unnatural as she blushed. She said, “I saw how Chuxue doesn’t really talk much with Xu Cheng, so I’m just curious.”
“Of course, you should already know my sister’s temper by now. She had always been the indifferent type and seems like she doesn’t care about anything. She’s also very quiet,” Lin Lei said.
“So… their relationship is quite good?” Shen Yao asked with uncertainty.
Lin Lei nodded.
Shen Yao was still a bit puzzled, so she continued to ask, “Do you know if your sister has a crush on anyone?”
Lin Lei didn’t reveal more but he also didn’t deny it. All in all, he was being pretty vague on purpose to make Shen Yao feel like there was something going on between Lin Chuxue and Xu Cheng so she could be mentally prepared. He nodded and said, “If there’s no one in my sister’s heart, I think she would’ve found a boyfriend awhile ago, don’t you think?”
