Chapter 252: I Represent the Dragon Division (Part one)

The next day, Xu Cheng went on his morning run again and he chose the exact same time as yesterday. When he went to the park, he saw the elder already waiting for him while practicing Tai Chi.

Tired from the run, Xu Cheng still went in to drink some tea. But after taking a sip, he was a bit dissatisfied, “Elder, what happened to the tea?”

The elder snorted. “You little brat really did waste the dahongpao, so I just gave you normal oolong tea instead. You would chug it down anyways so it doesn’t matter what you drink.”

After Xu Cheng drank two cups of tea, he squatted down to take a break as he watched the old man. After watching for awhile, he asked in curiosity, “Is Tai Chi really useful?”

The old man replied, “It depends on your mentality. If your heart is impetuous and you can’t calm down, then it will be useless no matter how much you practice. Tai Chi can be regarded as an exercise to cultivate your soul and train your temper.”

After finishing one set, the elder retrieved his hands and then looked at Xu Cheng. “How about it? Do you want to see my fist technique from yesterday again?”

Xu Cheng: “It’s fine.”

The elder was surprised. “You sure? Do you know that those 30 strokes of my fist technique can each defend but also attack, and it can be derived from each other but also connected differently to create new moves? You remembered 12 strokes, and even if you remembered 29, that one stroke you are missed could cause the whole technique to be incomplete and flawed. The strength of each attack or defense will also take a big hit.”

Xu Cheng said, “I understand, but I also know that there’s no free lunch. Why do I feel like it’s a trap that you are teaching me this technique without any reason?”

“Trap my a-s!” The old man directly shouted, “What can an old man set up a trap for you for? Do you have money or power? What do you have that I have to set up a trap for you to get?”

Xu Cheng said, “I’m younger than you.”

The old man paused for a moment, and then his eyes lost some color as he nodded. “Yeah, it’s nice to be young.”

Xu Cheng felt that his words might’ve hurt this old man so he paused for a moment and then added, “In fact, you still look pretty young. If you don’t mind, I will call you my big brother.”

“You brat!” The old man laughed out as he walked over and sat down by Xu Cheng. He then patted Xu Cheng on the back, and that rich strength almost made Xu Cheng vomit out the water he just drank.

“How about it, did you feel my internal force?” The old man sighed. “I’m indeed old, yet there’s still no one yet that can inherit my legacy. I see that you are quite talented…”

Xu Cheng interrupted him. “Just ask me if I want to learn or not.”

The old man: “Do you want to or not?”

Xu Cheng directly replied without a second of hesitation, “Yes!”

The old man laughed. “You little b-stard.”

Xu Cheng asked him in curiosity, “Old man, I have a question to ask you first.”

The old man nodded. “Go ahead.”
Xu Cheng: “I know that with your relationship with the general commander, if you really wanted to find a successor for your techniques, you definitely have a pool of people to choose from. But why did you choose me?”

The old man glared at him. “What’s with all the nonsense? Is it you begging me to teach you or me begging you to learn?”

Xu Cheng stroked his chin. “Elder, if I were you and there’s someone being so picky, I would’ve definitely turned around and left right away. But you actually didn’t, which means that you are already determined to have me become your successor. Would you say my analysis is correct?”
