Chapter 366: Putting on the Golden Clown Mask (Part One)
As soon as they arrived in Shangcheng, Bei Shan got a call, and his entire face became very ugly. He immediately looked towards Xu Cheng and said, “The old man is barely hanging on! He wants you to go and see him.”
Xu Cheng was stunned for a moment, and then he immediately got back into the helicopter and they directly flew towards Yanjing.
– At the Military Region Hospital –
Xu Cheng strode towards the door of the operation room, outside of which stood all the Dragon Division Members that survived the battle, lined up by the door. The four Sky Kings waited outside as well, and upon seeing Xu Cheng, they all moved out of the way for him.
After a brief hesitation, Xu Cheng opened the door of the operating room. Inside, Zhang Chenfeng was covered in blood and had an oxygen mask on. He was getting a transfusion, but his electrocardiogram was extremely weak.
Upon seeing Xu Cheng come in, the four attending doctors directly walked out of the operating room.
The old man slowly took off his oxygen mask and weakly smiled at Xu Cheng. “I’m sorry that I hid the truth from you, I’m that big troll Division Master that you were talking about wanting to beat up.”
“I know.” Xu Cheng bitterly laughed. “Since I began coming into contact with other members of the Dragon Division, I got an idea of their level, and judging by your strength, you definitely weren’t a simple recruiter. Old man, I kind of regret joining the Dragon Division now, what should I do now?”
“It’s too late, little brat.” The old man put on a “I got you” smile and said, “Still remember what I said to you before? Once you are in, you are in for your whole life. Protect the Division like how you would protect your wife, for the rest of your life! You promised me.”
“You are such a joker!” Xu Cheng laughed and scolded. “What Poker, what 2! Those are all traps!”
The old man still smiled very proudly and said, “You are not me, you don’t know how bored I have been all these years. I’ve lived for more than a hundred years, and if you don’t let me do something fun, my whole body will feel uncomfortable.”
Xu Cheng smiled bitterly. “Well, now that all four of the behemoth families are dead, you can rest assured, right?”
The old man shook his head. “Child, the four behemoth families are just the beginning. The real stage is the world!”
Then, the old man passed a box and handed it to Xu Cheng. “Here, this is your first reward after joining the Dragon Division. You wiped out the four behemoth clans, and speaking of merit and reward, treat it as a military merit and take it with glory. You must guard it for generations!”
Xu Cheng saw the box with golden lace and didn’t rush to open it. He looked at the old man and said, “Don’t talk anymore, just listen to the doctor and get the operation done. I will sign for you on behalf of your family.”
“No need.” The old man grinned weakly. “Humans, they will get greedy when they get old. Now that I have everything taken care of and handed off responsibilities to the right people, I think it’s time for me to go. Kid, remember, great power comes with great responsibilities, and you shouldn’t run from it at all. Remember, from the moment you decided to stand up for yourself and your loved ones and be a real man, your fate was already decided.”
Xu Cheng sighed. “I’m afraid that I won’t be able to do a good job.”
The old man smiled kindly and said, “You don’t have to, you just have to be willing to do it. That’s why I gave you the number 2, to protect you while making you the most important one. I’ve thought of this all because of the ‘Fight the Landlord’ card game we have in Huaxia, so other countries definitely won’t associate you with being the biggest card. But, to be able to call you Old Two, is the most proud thing in my life.”
Xu Cheng laughed. “Old man, if you like digging holes for people that much, you will get beat up when you go to heaven.”
