Chapter 500: Elder Zhou Trying to Set Up (Part Two)
Zhou Zheng nodded, patted him on the shoulder, and said, “Sorry, Little Cheng. But as for your Grandpa Zhou’s health, I still hope you can help if you can… Just treat it as Uncle Zhou begging you.”
“Don’t worry, I will try my best.” Xu Cheng smiled. “Then I will get going first.”
Zhou Zheng nodded and said, “I will drive you, it will save you some time on the road.”
He would be able to travel a lot faster in traffic.
Zhou Zheng brought Xu Cheng to the Ye Manor. After Xu Cheng went in, he saw the big family all just sitting by the table, not moving their chopsticks. Upon seeing this scene, Zhou Zheng became even more scared of walking in.
He cautiously said, “Dad, I brought Little Cheng back.”
“The dishes are all cold now!” Elder Zhou said.
Zhou Zheng almost shat his pants.
Auntie Lan immediately helped out and said, “It’s fine, Elder Zhou. I will go and heat up the dishes right now.”
Elder Zhou looked over at his son Zhou Zheng and said, “Why was he arrested?”
“Uh…” Zhou Zheng was between laughter and tears, and he didn’t know what to say. He indeed hadn’t found out the details of Xu Cheng’s arrest.
“Among your brothers, you are the most careless one. This is your attitude towards work?” Elder Zhou was greatly disappointed in this son of his. It was such an embarrassment in front of his friends here.
At this time, Xu Cheng picked up a piece of fish and put it in Elder Zhou’s bowl. “If I don’t eat, I won’t have energy. And if I don’t have energy, I can’t concentrate on making my medicine.”
Hearing this, the other elders glared at Elder Zhou. “Even if you aren’t hungry, we are still hungry. Hurry, let’s eat. Little Ting, please go and heat up the dishes.”
Elder Zhou glanced at Zhou Zheng and snorted, “Hurry up and go back home and bring over two bottles of that baijiu I treasure!”
Elder Ye laughed. “Just two bottles and you have the face to bring it out? You think two bottles is enough for what just happened/”
Elder Zhou smacked his lips and heartachingly glared at Zhou Zheng and said, “Get four bottles!”
Zhou Zheng immediately fled. Left fast, came back fast, he immediately brought over 4 bottles of special supply grade baijiu.
Elder Ye looked at him and said, “Have a seat, it’s already this hour, you probably haven’t eaten too. Just stay and eat with us.”
“Thanks, Uncle Ye!” Zhou Zheng excitedly said and then found a seat and sat down.
Elder Ye looked at Ye Ting (Lan Ting) and said, “Little Ting, go and have a seat beside Little Zheng.”
Auntie Lan nodded cautiously and sat down beside Zhou Zheng.
At this time, Ye Pei walked out of the room into the courtyard. He turned his phone on mute, sat by his dad Elder Ye, and after taking a sip of the soup, he said to Elder Ye, “Dad, I already called the people from the Commission of Discipline Inspection over.”
Elder Ye nodded.
At this time, Elder Zhou said to his son Zhou Zheng, “This is your Grandpa Ye’s goddaughter, Ye Ting, and she’s also Xu Cheng’s aunt, someone who used to be around Little Cheng’s mom.”
Zhou Zheng immediately shook hands with Auntie Lan.
At this time, the other elders looked at Elder Zhou and asked in a weird tone, “Yo dawg, what are you trying to do, dawg?”
Xu Cheng asked in confusion too, “Yeah, Grandpa Zhou, my auntie isn’t someone that anyone can just court.”
Elder Zhou glared at Xu Cheng and then looked over at Elder Ye and said, “Big Brother Ye, my son Little Zheng is already over forty and still isn’t married. I heard your goddaughter Ye Ting is also a little over forty, right?”
The other three elders immediately became anxious. “We don’t agree!”
They all knew what Old Zhou was trying to do. Otherwise, when introducing her to Zhou Zheng, he wouldn’t just bring up out of the blue that this was Xu Cheng’s auntie, someone that used to be around Xu Cheng’s mom.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
That sentence weighed too much! It was basically telling Zhou Zheng that this isn’t just a daughter recognized by Elder Ye, but she was someone that was related to Xu Cheng!
As long as Zhou Zheng wasn’t stupid, he should know what to do.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
