Chapter 486: Living Up Until Now, Do You Feel Like Your Life Is Worth It? (Part Two)
At this time, Elder Zhou saw Xu Cheng crossing the crowd and he immediately waved, “Little Cheng, hurry up. Come and see Big Brother Ye for the last time.”
Seeing Elder Zhou wave, those guys that had been crowding in the front yard immediately gave way.
Xu Cheng followed Ye Xiu into Grandpa Ye’s bedroom.
“Dad, Little Cheng is here to see you…” Minister Ye said gently to Elder Ye by his bedside.
Xu Cheng came to the side of the bed and saw Elder Ye’s face was all pale and lifeless. That white hair was a little messy and untrimmed, and his eyes were dull. His heartbeat and breathing were quick-paced, it was as if he was about to die any second.
“Big Brother Ye, that brat you had been boasting about for the past months is back to see you! Hurry up and take a look at him,” Elder Guo loudly said, afraid that Elder Ye was already on the verge of losing consciousness.
When Elder Ye heard those words, his eyes finally regained some focus.
He weakly raised his hand, wanting to take off of the oxygen mask on his face. Minister Ye didn’t agree and stopped him.
“It’s fine, just let him do what he wants…” At this time, Elder Zhou sighed.
Xu Cheng sat beside the old man’s bed, and Minister Ye helped the old man take off the oxygen mask.
With the mask off, Elder Ye very much wanted to give Xu Cheng a dashing smile. But right now, his facial muscles were all stiff, and he didn’t have the energy squeeze one out. In the end, he could only move one corner of his mouth, and the intended smile turned into a sneer.
The old man was still talking like a child as he said with difficulty, “Brat… did you see it? Even when I die, you see the kind of arrangement I have going on? You see those guys outside? With one command from me, they can drown you with their saliva.”
Xu Cheng didn’t know whether he should cry or laugh. “Alright, you are the best. If I had known this, I should’ve just waited until you died and then go see you at your grave. That way, I wouldn’t feel this sad.”
Elder Ye sighed, “You are too slow, I can’t even watch what kind of show you are going to put on for the world.”
Xu Cheng bitterly smiled. “I can’t help it, I have no money, nor background, so I can only take one step at a time.”
Elder Ye asked him, “I’m about to go soon, can you tell me, what you are really trying to play?”
Xu Cheng: “You guys are giving me too much pressure. In Huaxia, I really can’t outdo the five grandpas and become as awesome as you guys, so I have to go abroad and try to accomplish something. I was originally thinking that I would come back after I became a big shot and then boast to you guys. But yeah, it looks like you can’t wait that long anymore. If I really tell you right now, would it really be good to spoil it?”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“You brat!” Elder Ye coughed, yet there was a kind smile on his face. “This isn’t your style. Are you just complimenting me because you saw that I’m about to die soon? In fact, you are very capable too, you know that? I just think that, if a man’s going to live, then he should live out his best life, his wildest dreams. Since you already picked your path, then there’s no need to look back, no need to explain, because when you become a legend, you won’t need to explain anything.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“Old man, you worked your azz off for the country for the first half of your life, yet it caused you to live with all kinds of after-effects of your injuries for the last half of your life on a wheelchair. Is it worth it?” Xu Cheng sighed and asked, “Sometimes, I’ve been thinking too, is it really worth it?”
“Brat, that’s because you haven’t traveled high enough to appreciate the scenery that’s already below your feet. Take a look at the people in and out of my yard, look at who those guys are. The most important thing about living life is to not live it in vain. Judging from my own perspective, I’ve got success and recognition, and that’s enough!” The old man tried to put on one more handsome smile on his pale face.

Looks like Canada is planning to begin lifting the lockdown and opening up the country again, so everybody should try to be extra careful in the coming weeks!
