Chapter 333: Don’t Be the Hero of the Moment, Be the King of the Generation! (Part one)
Lin Chuxue couldn’t reach Xu Cheng through his phone after many attempts, so she thought Xu Cheng might’ve encountered some trouble. After putting on a disguise, she brought her keys and went to Xu Cheng’s condo. After looking through all the rooms, she finally found Xu Cheng laying against a chair on the balcony, asleep. Beside him was a pile of white liquor bottles. Asleep? More like drunk.
Lin Chuxue quietly went over and picked up the bottles and cleaned up. Xu Cheng slowly woke up. After Lin Chuxue put the bottles into the recycling bin, she came over and gently touched Xu Cheng’s forehead. “Why didn’t you answer my calls?”
Xu Cheng softly said, “Sorry…”
He turned around and stooped down into silence.
Sensing that his mood wasn’t right, Lin Chuxue curiously asked, “What happened?”
Xu Cheng was silent for a long time. Finally, he spoke.
“I went to see my dad’s woman.”
Lin Chuxue was a bit shocked. She hesitantly asked, “Mom… is she alright?”
Xu Cheng shook his head.
Immediately, he stood up and went to the edge of the balcony. The wind blew onto his face, but he couldn’t calm down.
“I misunderstood her for so many years, I always thought that she didn’t care if my dad was dead or alive, and she didn’t care about me. In fact, I was wrong. Which parent in this world doesn’t love their child? She spent these years being imprisoned. She was the beloved daughter of the Ye Family, yet she had to spend the rest of her life locked up and the son she had been worried about and missing for over 20 years had only been complaining about her… Sometimes, I really feel that I…”
Before he could finish, Lin Chuxue hugged him from behind.
“I’ve never seen you look so depressed, this isn’t like the Xu Cheng I know. Can you be more confident? What setback can bring you down? You said, for me, you can become the enemy of the whole world. Then what are you scared of right now?”
Xu Cheng froze. Then, he placed his hand on Lin Chuxue’s hand and bitterly smiled. “Chuxue, if one day I became insane, what would you do?”
Lin Chuxue leaned on his back and smiled. “I will go crazy with you!”
Xu Cheng laughed and asked, “Do you know what I’m going to do next?”
Lin Chuxue nodded. “Save our mom. I will cook up a good meal and wait for you.”
Xu Cheng didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry. “Then I’m willing to not save her.”
Lin Chuxue immediately pinched him on the waist. “I’m going to get some chefs to cook the meal, alright? After you guys left that day, I tried the dishes myself! Humph! I’m an actress, you think I couldn’t tell that you guys were pretending?”
Xu Cheng: “Then why did you keep on telling us to have more?”
Lin Chuxue: “Wouldn’t it be a waste otherwise? At least I did spend a lot of time on it.”
Xu Cheng was speechless. “I’m convinced by this reason.”
Lin Chuxue turned around, picked up a pack of cigarettes, and took one out and placed it into Xu Cheng’s mouth. Xu Cheng paused briefly. “What are you doing?”
“Don’t move.” Lin Chuxue smiled, and then she lit it for him.
After taking a puff, Lin Chuxue smiled. “Yeah, that’s the Xu Cheng I know. Whenever you smoke, I feel like you can carry everything on your shoulders. My man is especially manly when he smokes!” (TL Note: your man’s at risk for lung cancer)
Xu Cheng didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry. After putting out the smoke, he looked at the scenery outside the balcony and narrowed his eyes. “It’s not right for the Ryong Family to always be this domineering, right? Look at this beautiful world, it’s easy for the throne to change owners.”
