Chapter 388: Senior Brother, Long Time No See (Part Two)
Bei Shan: “All done. At most, the police will know it’s a murder case, but they don’t know the nature of this case.”
Xu Cheng got into the car and lit a cigarette, and Bei Shan sat on the passenger seat. Xu Cheng suddenly asked, “He probably noticed that the mental institute is a front for the Dragon Division’s base, right?’
Bei Shan: “Probably. But I don’t get it, why doesn’t he just make his way in?”
“He’s testing the waters.” Xu Cheng flicked the ash off the cigarette butt and said, “It’s evident that he’s quite afraid of the old man. Before making sure that the old man is really dead, this Little Joker wouldn’t rush into the base camp. Looks like what the old man was able to accomplish in this lifetime is even daunting to Little Joker. It’s like the saying, even though the tree is dead, the shadow remains!”
Bei Shan hesitated for a moment. He looked over at Xu Cheng and said, “What do we do now?”
Xu Cheng bitterly laughed. “How should I know? I don’t know how strong the old man is at his prime, but if it’s like you said, that the Little Joker has reached the old man’s level at his prime, then I’m not confident that I can beat him.”
Even on the verge of death by natural causes, Zhang Chenfeng was able to take down the two old men of the Li and Murong Family with him. It could only be imagined how strong he was at his prime. At least right now, if Xu Cheng were to face both the leaders of the Li and Murong Family at once, he wasn’t 100% confident that he could win. So, Xu Cheng really didn’t have the confidence.
After Xu Cheng and Bei Shan returned to the Dragon Division’s base, they noticed that the 30 or so remaining Dragon Blades all came back, and the substitute team members also all got into formation, waiting to see who would be enlisted into the actual ranks of the Dragon Blades.
The atmosphere of the entire underground base was very tense, no one knew when that traitor would come back, or whether he would assassinate them one by one. So, Xu Cheng called everyone back to the base and no one was allowed to leave for the next few days.
If they could survive this big battle, Xu Cheng felt like the Dragon Division could be revealed on the world stage. After all, there was no reason to hide anymore if the Little Joker already found their base and revealed them to the M Nation’s 5th Division.
But luckily, the member list of the Dragon Division had always been kept a secret, or Little Joker wouldn’t be this cautious and only probed rather than directly making an entrance.
Many of the substitute team members were enlisted into the 54 Dragon Blades. Xu Cheng was still worried as he smoked at the back mountain area of the campus, and behind him, Luo Yi and Li Wei came over. They looked especially excited with the certificate they got around their necks. To them, this was probably the happiest moment of their lives.
Luo Yi looked at the scenery and said, “Although the enlistment seems to be temporary for now, I’m still really happy that I can really fight for the country and the Dragon Division this time.”
Li Wei coughed and he showed off the 4 of Clover card around his neck. He put his arm around Xu Cheng’s neck, laughed, and said, “Big Brother Cheng, back in the barracks, you are the senior brother, but here at the Dragon Division, you might have to call me Senior Brother now, hahaha!”
Xu Cheng didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry. “Do you guys know what kind of enemies we are going to be up against this time?”
Luo Yi said nonchalantly, “I’ve always been curious as to the kind of opponents the Dragon Division faces, but I’m not scared, it’s not like we hadn’t executed tough missions in the past before.”
Li Wei: “Yeah. We finally entered the 54-card ranking, no matter who comes this time, I’m going to show him the power of the Dragon Division!”
Seeing how confident those two were, Xu Cheng bitterly smiled. He didn’t want to hurt their confidence, maybe the new members would only grow after they’ve been through some things. Maybe then, they would realize how brutal this kind of war between nations actually was. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)

An elder in his 80s wearing a Tang suit stood in front of Zhang Chenfeng’s tombstone. Looking at the words engraved on the tombstone and the black-and-white photo, the elder revealed a smile.
