Chapter 426: Brat, This Trick Is Useless Against Me (Part One)
On the way back to the Ye Family, this old man, Elder Ye, was actually angry like a child and didn’t talk to Xu Cheng.
Xu Cheng sat by his side and looked out of the window. He faintly said, “Old Man, thank you for arranging all of this.”
Elder Ye’s body slightly moved, but he kept on pretending to be asleep. Then, he snorted, “What’s there to thank for? What you did was thanking me? You actually didn’t give me an out in front of those guys.”
Xu Cheng smiled. “Old Man, I’m the one you brought, and you will only gain face if I prove myself, right? Didn’t you see that when we were walking out, the other four grandpas were all looking at you enviously.”
“Really?” Elder Ye was a bit suspicious. He glanced at Xu Cheng and said, “You brat, your skin is even thicker than mine, always finding new ways to brag about yourself.”
Then, Elder Ye sighed. “Yo, Brat, do you still remember what I said to you about country and family?”
Xu Cheng nodded.
Elder Ye said, “With your current ability, you really can do things that normal people can’t. You are capable and also have a strong character. At least for someone of your age right now, nothing can really restrain you. Look at what’s happening to the Wei Nation. If similar things were to happen to our country, what kind of chaos would it bring? We have over 1.3 billion people, it would only be more chaotic. Sometimes, when the country wrongs you or hurts you by accident, could you please give it a bit more time and be a little more tolerant towards our country? Is that okay?”
Xu Cheng patted the old man on the back of his hand and said, “Old Man, you might not know but my dad instilled in me that I’m a citizen of Huaxia. Like him, I deeply love this country, so your concern is unnecessary. I think letting me leave the Dragon Division is probably the right choice. I won’t become as great as my teacher, Zhang Chenfeng. I still have my family, so I can’t be a hero for an entire lifetime. I’m still my wife’s husband, and in the future, my kids’ father. There are too many promises that I have to fulfill, and I won’t be able to sever any one of them. After all, this is life, isn’t it? But Old Man, I can promise you that the moment the nation needs me, I will come forward without hesitation!”
Elder Ye grabbed onto Xu Cheng’s hand and nodded as he said, “I believe you. You are just like your father, otherwise you wouldn’t have come back to Huaxia! What are your plans for the future now?”
Xu Cheng smiled bitterly. “I’m also a bit lost, I don’t know if I should be an entrepreneur and go into business or do something else. After all, I’ve been a soldier and served the people for so long, and now I’m feeling a bit reluctant to throw this all away. But, I’m indeed feeling a lot more relaxed. I think I will stay and accompany my wife for a while.”
Elder Ye nodded. “Come to Yanjing and visit home when you have time, don’t just forget about the five grandpas you have here.”
“I got it,” Xu Cheng smiled and said.
After saying bye to the Ye Family, Xu Cheng went back to the hospital. Lin Chuxue had been secretly discharged, and Xu Cheng secretly left Yanjing with Auntie Lan and Lin Chuxue and went back to Shangcheng.

Lin Dong had been squatting at Xu Cheng’s condo for two weeks now. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
He still remembered their deal, where Xu Cheng said, “If I’m still alive after one month, I will take you in as an apprentice.” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Now, it had been a month, and he was getting more and more anxious. After finding out about Xu Cheng’s nest, he had been waiting here every day since that one month period ended. His brother, Young Master Lin, even said, “Xu Cheng abuses you a thousand times, and you still treat Xu Cheng like your first love.”
Even Lin Dong’s girlfriend was throwing a fit because of this, and as a result, Lin Dong just broke up with her. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
