Chapter 428: Becoming an Apprentice (Part One)
Right after Lin Dong left, Lin Han’s phone rang.
“Little Brother Lin, it’s me, Zheng Jiarui.”
Lin Han immediately put on a big smile and said, “Oh, President Zheng! How are you doing?”
“Little Brother Lin, have you eaten yet?’
Lin Han looked at the meal on the table and he immediately said, “Oh, not at all. Not yet.”
“Oh that’s good. I booked a room at the Royal Capital Restaurant, how about you join us too? Is your little son Lin Dong there?” Zheng Jiarui said, sounding like he was in a good mood.
“Uh…” Lin Han hesitated.
“What is it? Not convenient? Little Brother Lin, actually, I think we can work together on a new project.”
Lin Han’s eyes immediately lit up. “Convenient, very convenient, how could it be not convenient? I will be right there.”
“Hahaha, that’s good then.” Zheng Jiarui hung up.
After putting down the phone, Lin Han said to his eldest son with a darkened face, “Go give your little brother a call, tell him to get the fack back here.”
Mommy Lin curiously asked, “What happened?”
“What else? President Zheng is now asking about what happened, and he arranged a dinner and asked me to take Little Dong over, right now.”
Mommy Lin’s face became slightly unnatural, and Young Master Lin immediately called Lin Dong’s cell.
Lin Dong was driving as he put Jade Qilin Garden into the navigation system. He picked up the call and impatiently said, “What?!”
“Dad asked you to come back quickly, I don’t know what’s going on on President Zheng’s end, but he arranged a dinner and you need to go right now so don’t be capricious. I think it’s probably because you rejected his daughter. Come back and take care of this first. Right now, we still can’t afford to offend the Zheng Family. Listen to your big brother’s words this time.”
“Then just wait until I become that person’s apprentice first. I can apologize to them anytime, but if I miss this teacher, then I will miss out on the chance of my lifetime to have such a grandmaster be my teacher,” Lin Dong said.
On the other end, Lin Han directly grabbed the call and said in a deep voice, “[email protected], come back right now!”
Lin Dong directly ended the call impatiently and turned off his phone.
Lin Han’s whole face was trembling with fear and he said angrily, “Go! Let’s go and grab that [email protected] home, President Zheng’s still waiting.”
“I heard the GPS say he’s going to Jade Qilin Garden, I know that place,” Young Master Lin said.
Lin Han nodded, and the two of them got into a car and sped off.
Lin Dong drove into Jade Qilin Garden and found villa #66. He got out of the car and rang the doorbell. A maid came to open the door.
“Is it Mr. Lin?”
Lin Dong nodded.
The maid: “Come on in.”
Lin Dong hurriedly went in, and when he panted as he arrived at the door of the villa’s living room, he saw Xu Cheng sitting there drinking tea with two of his friends. Seeing him here, Xu Cheng waved for him to come in.
Luo Yi took a look at Lin Dong, Li Wei too, and they both shook their heads.
Lin Dong swallowed and began panicking: Am I done for? Am I really not qualified?
“From the front door to the living room, it’s just about a couple of dozen meters away. He hurriedly came in and is already out of breath, he’s clearly not fit,” Li Wei commented.
Luo Yi nodded too. “His body doesn’t seem to be in great shape either, so slim and weak. Is he going the fresh meat pop star route?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Lin Dong’s heart thumped and he became even more worried. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
It was also reasonable for Luo Yi and Li Wei to be this picky. After all, Xu Cheng was the Dragon King, not just anyone could become his student!
So, they asked Xu Cheng, “Big Brother Cheng, aren’t you a bit too liberal with your picks, taking him in as an apprentice?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Lin Dong became even less confident at this point. He just stood there awkwardly, not knowing what expression he should have on his face and what he should say. All in all, he looked quite pitiful.
Xu Cheng faintly smiled. “Brat, I’ve rejected you again and again, and I even toyed with you today. Aren’t you angry?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
