Chapter 380: In the Future, Call Him Big Brother (Part Two)
Xu Cheng nodded thoughtfully, and he finally began to realize what Bei Shan meant earlier when he said that he wasn’t alone, because everyone would protect him.
It was a trust that was placed in him!
To be honest, after the four behemoth families were destroyed, would there really not be any backlash from their affiliations in the nation? That would be impossible! However, the waters were so calm after the incident, and if it weren’t for everyone’s endurance and sacrifices, peace wouldn’t be possible. How much sacrifice was needed to maintain that peace after the event?
For the first time, Xu Cheng felt that the country gave him enough trust!
Ye Xiu came out and handed over the old Maotai that Grandpa Ye had treasured over the years.
“Dad said to not drink too much.”
His grandpa immediately glared at him. “Open it! Don’t think I don’t know that he’s been eyeing these good liquors of mine. That coward that can’t go to war and only knows how to play politics, don’t expect me to leave him any of this good stuff! Humph!”
Ye Xiu was speechless. His father was a highly influential official in the political world after all, yet in the eyes of his grandpa, those that can’t go to war aren’t real men. His grandpa was part of the older generation of commanders that survived the battlefield after killing many enemies, so he didn’t favor Ye Xiu’s dad who couldn’t take after his steps. It was a good thing that Ye Xiu joined the military, so Grandpa especially spoiled this grandson of his.
After opening the Maotai, his grandpa said to him, “Give it to me.”
Ye Xiu: “Grandpa, just lay down, I will pour for you.”
The old man just grabbed it by force, and then poured the alcohol for Xu Cheng himself. Xu Cheng was a bit shocked by the big gesture and reached for the bottle as well. “Grandpa Ye, I can pour it myself.”
His hands were held down by the old man, and then aftering pouring the drink for Xu Cheng, he poured himself a cup. Then, raising the cup, he cheered to Xu Cheng, “Here, this is to you!”
“What are you doing?!” Xu Cheng was getting nervous. He respected veterans from the bottom of his heart, because if it wasn’t for them, Huaxia wouldn’t be where it was today. It should be him toasting Grandpa Ye, not the other way around.
“Drink!” Grandpa Ye glared at Xu Cheng.
Xu Cheng bitterly laughed and downed the liquor.
It was quite spicy, but very refreshing, making his whole body feel warm on such a cold night.
Then, Grandpa Ye poured him another cup, and then one more for himself. “This, is to the sacrifices we had to make!”
Xu Cheng bitterly laughed. “Alright, to the sacrifices we had to make!”
Ye Xiu watched as the two drank cup after cup, and in the end, Ye Xiu helped Xu Cheng back to his room. When he came back to the courtyard, his grandpa was still not quite drunk yet. He said to Ye Xiu, “You are younger than Xu Cheng, call him Big Brother from now on.”
Ye Xiu was surprised. “We can’t be relatives, right?”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“His mother’s last name is Ye.” The old man looked at Ye Xiu with deep meaning. “The biggest Ye Family in Yanjing! In terms of the status in the family, not even your father could be compared to his mother.”
Ye Xiu was shocked.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“I want you to respect him not because of his mother, but because what he’s able to do is worthy of your respect,” after Grandpa Ye finished, he slowly went back to his own room.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
