Chapter 425: Low-key Bragging (Part Two)
Xu Cheng nonchalantly popped these words out of his mouth, “I wiped out the Li Family.”
“Uh.” Not to mention Elder Ye, even the other four elders were dumbfounded. Them making that sound was their best attempt to try and hold back their laughter.
Elder Ye felt that he finally met a match in bragging in his life, so he looked at Xu Cheng and said, “With only a thousand troops, I decimated the enemy force of 5 thousand troops! It’s become a textbook battle in the history of modern battles in Huaxia!”
Xu Cheng: “I wiped out the Murong Family.”
Elder Ye: “…”
“Back then, a town of at least 10,000 citizens were surrounded by Wei Nation’s troops, and it was me that led the troops and defended all night until we received reinforcements.”
Xu Cheng: “I took down the Ryong Family!”
The Ryong Family was regarded as the most powerful one of the four!
Seeing how Big Brother Ye looked like he was constantly choked by Xu Cheng’s words, they were all trying so hard to not laugh.
Elder Ye was furious. He slapped the desk and said, “Back then, I had only 20 thousand soldiers and was sandwiched by both the Republic Army and the Wei Nation. It was me that used my insane tactical abilities that won us that battle! Humph!”
Xu Cheng: “And you still couldn’t take out your own main branch family, the Ye Family. But I did.”
Elder Ye: “I…”
“Hahahaha.” The four elders all couldn’t hold it in anymore and burst into laughter.
“Big Brother Ye, this guy really does have the assets to sit here and brag with us now. Look at you, why are you taking it so seriously? Have a drink first, calm your t1ts first, hahaha.”
Elder Ye refused.
“Brat, during that anti-Wei-Invasion war, they sent 30 or so generals, and at least 8 of them died by my very hands! If I say I killed the most Wei Nation soldiers, no one would dare to argue with me! What are you so arrogant about?” Elder Ye said very proudly.
Xu Cheng just held up four fingers and showed him.
Elder Ye was confused. “What do you mean?”
Xu Cheng: “I took down the four behemoth clans.”
Elder Ye slammed the table. “Besides wiping out the facking four clans, what else have you got?”
“Old man, what do you mean besides wiping out those four clans? You are saying it as if it’s such an easy thing to do. Look at all five grandpas here, and also look at my teacher, Zhang Chenfeng. You guys were all suppressed by the four clans for so long. But now, I wiped them out. Doesn’t that mean I can brag more than you?”
Elder Ye just looked at Xu Cheng as the will to keep on living slowly disappeared from his eyes.
“Hahahahahaha…” The other four elders all laughed again as they held their stomach, all slapping the desks. “Yeah! Yeah it does! Big Brother Ye, you lost this round!”
“We can’t chat happily together anymore, right?” Elder Ye stared right at Xu Cheng, giving off a look that was saying he was going to flip the table right now.
Xu Cheng just glanced at him and casually added, “With your old bones, if you can still flip this table, I lose.”
“Hahahahah!” The other grandpas were laughing so hard that tears were coming out. The four youngsters didn’t know what Xu Cheng was saying, but they were worried that something might go wrong with their grandpa’s health since they were really laughing too hard right now.
The four of them never saw Big Brother Ye get shocked back so much, and they were thrilled to finally see it.
In the past, they would often brag to kill time, and indeed, whether it was military merits or confirmed enemy kills, Elder Ye was always ranked number one. They all couldn’t win the bragging war in front of Elder Ye, and thus, they had been suppressed in Elder Ye’s shadow for their whole lives.
“Without mentioning the behemoth families, you little brat, if you can bring up one more thing that can choke me, then I lose,” Elder Ye pointed at Xu Cheng’s face and said, seemingly forgotten what had just happened a few days ago in the heat of the moment.

Xu Cheng looked at him with the “I don’t want to hurt you” expression and said, “Two days ago, or should I say in the near future, with the political feud brewing and exploding and the two biggest financial groups in hot water, Wei Nation’s economy would be screwed with the GDP at least decreasing by 30%! Old man, does this count?”
“Hahahahah!” Another relentless wave of merciless laughter came from the four elders. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
That was correct. With everything that was going on in Wei Nation, the experts in Huaxia had already looked into it and just as Xu Cheng said, its economy and reputation would both be severely damaged as a result of the scandals.
