Chapter 430: I’m Also willing to Fall with You (Part One)
The villa Xu Cheng lived in was one of their own owned by the real estate company under Auntie Lan’s name. It was especially reserved because the number 66 was a lucky number in Huaxia culture, and since Xu Cheng was selling his condo, he decided to just move in here for the time being.
The whole villa was very spacious and had its own garden which was five acres in size. The front yard was designed around a fountain, and the backyard had its own outdoor swimming pool. The market value of this kind of villa in Shangcheng was in the hundreds of millions. Anyway, Luo Yi and Li Wei didn’t want to move out anymore after moving in.
After the two finished drinking tea, they came to the front yard with Xu Cheng and laid back on some chairs, feeling very comfortable as they exclaimed, “Big Brother Cheng, if you told us that you were living this kind of luxurious life earlier, then we wouldn’t have worked so hard to try to squeeze into the Dragon Division. We would’ve just followed you out a long time ago.”
“But I also didn’t accomplish much though. This house isn’t under my name, I’m actually just leeching off of my family.” Xu Cheng smiled.
“Big Brother Cheng, if you have any orders, just tell us right away. We have healthy arms and legs, we can do things for you. Since we already followed you out, don’t hesitate to boss us around,” Li Wei cut right to the chase.
Xu Cheng shook his head. “There’s not much for now really, just take a good break, and I’m also giving myself a break to rest up. It was quite tiring for me for the past few weeks, we will talk about the future when it comes. Right now, I’m going to accompany my wife first.”
“I don’t get it, why don’t you disclose your relationship to the public? Is there something you are worried about?” Luo Yi curiously asked.
Xu Cheng looked at the trees in the front yard and chuckled and said, “I’ve offended too many people. Do you still remember the four behemoth clans?”
Xu Cheng said, “They all have their own independent army! In Africa’s mercenary area, they have no problem raising their own mercenary groups. These guys are eyeing me, and right now, there’s still nothing they could use to target me, but if I were to disclose my relationship with Chuxue, they won’t be able to harm me, but they can definitely try to harm Chuxue. I don’t want something like last time happening again. What’s more is, Chuxue’s in Huaxia, and mercenaries can’t penetrate the borders. But, there’s nothing stopping them from laying their hands on my in-law’s family. I wiped out all four clans, it would only be natural if they brainlessly retaliate and harm whoever they could that’s related to me. If something were to happen, how would I face Chuxue in the future?”
The two of them immediately realized what was going on. Indeed, there wasn’t much they could do other than not disclose it.
It wasn’t something that Xu Cheng and Lin Chuxue could just hold hands and face together. It would only drag innocent people into the crossfire.
Xu Cheng sighed, and he stood up and walked towards the villa.
Lin Chuxue was discharged from the hospital, but her wound hadn’t completely healed yet. When Xu Cheng walked in, he saw Auntie Lan applying some medical ointment for her. He saw the two bullet wounds on Lin Chuxue’s snow-white skin on her waist and abdomen. Wounds like this couldn’t heal that fast, and they might even leave behind scars in the future.

When seeing Xu Cheng suddenly appearing by the door, Lin Chuxue was scared that he would see her wounds and she subconsciously covered it with a blanket, a trace of panic appearing on her face. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
She was very scared that leaving scars on her body would make her imperfect, which could disappoint Xu Cheng. She had always taken great pride in her looks and body, but at the same time, she always felt that she was just a flower vase, one that was only pretty on the outside, one that Xu Cheng went through so much hardship to get. Yet, a crack had appeared on the flower vase that was only good for its looks, so she was afraid that Xu Cheng would be disappointed.
