Chapter 421: I Can Brag About It All the Way Into My Grave With This (Part Two)
If Grandpa Ye’s appreciation for Xu Cheng in the past was only because they shared similar backgrounds, then now, his appreciation for Xu Cheng now was pure admiration. All in all, the more he looked at Xu Cheng, the more pleased he became.
After a cup of drink went down to his belly, Grandpa Ye laughed openly and asked Xu Cheng, “Did you kill to your heart’s content?”
After Xu Cheng downed the drink too, he clenched his teeth due to the spicy taste and said, “Very!”
“That’s right then! Here, my man, another one!” the old man laughed and said.
“Dad, I think you should stop drinking now, you have to pay attention to your health.” Minister Ye obviously knew his dad really well, this old man was clearly just using this event as an excuse to drink a little more. It was a known fact that the old man liked to drink and was maybe a little addicted, so it was funny when he used such a grandiose excuse to feed his alcoholism.
It was all good when Minister Ye didn’t speak, but the moment he did, the old man’s temper came and he slapped the table and said, “Can’t you just let me enjoy myself? There’s finally something I can be happy and brag to other people about, can’t you just let me brag to my heart’s content? Let me tell you brat, in the past I didn’t go out and see my old comrades as often because the things I can brag about all go way back in the days! Look at those guys’ sons, all brave and loyal soldiers that can kill and protect, and look at you! If it wasn’t for how the country’s doing well with you at the minister position, I would’ve disowned you a long time ago! Look at Xu Cheng this time, he just made me so content. Yesterday, I went and met up with the old comrades for some activities, and I said to those guys, ‘Yo, you see that? Wei Nation’s in a sh-tstorm right now, who did it? My facking grandson!’ When those guys heard that, they immediately gave me a big thumbs up. Now, I feel so alive that I won’t even breathe heavily after five flights of stairs!”
Xu Cheng: “…”
Grandpa Ye kept on going, “Just this alone, I can brag about it all the way into my grave, do you guys believe it?”
The other three members of the Ye Family immediately nodded. “Yeah.”
“Old man, say no more, cheers!” Xu Cheng couldn’t bear to listen to this anymore.
At this moment, Minister Ye also praised Xu Cheng, “Little Cheng, good job hiding the merit and your name deep under the surface!”
“Grandpa, Dad, what are you guys talking about?” Ye Xiu really didn’t know what these guys were on about.
“You don’t need to know, knowing it won’t do you any good,” Grandpa Ye smiled and then said to Xu Cheng, “I know you are going back soon, but those old comrades of mine really want to see you. How about this, there’s no better day than today, I will just take you to see them in a bit today.”
Ye Xiu was completely dumbfounded as his eyes stared wide open upon hearing this.
Not even he received this level of treatment before! As the only grandson of Grandpa Ye, he really hadn’t been brought out this formally to see the older generation’s comrades. It looks like Grandpa Ye really admired Xu Cheng a lot to even give him this kind of treatment.
“Old man, let Ye Xiu go with you…” Xu Cheng quietly chipped in. “I don’t need to go… right?”
Grandpa Ye glared right at him, “Little Xiu doesn’t have to go, but you absolutely do! I already bragged to them about you and they specifically nominated you for me to bring over. Let me tell you, the tempers of those guys are quite like mine, and they really like you. If you don’t go over to see them, then no one in Tianjing will dare to help you travel back to your city.” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Xu Cheng didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry. “But I really don’t want to hear you guys brag to each other… What else will you guys do whenever you meet?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
At this moment, Minister Ye quietly eyed Xu Cheng and said, “Just go, boy, there’s definitely no harm in you going.” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
