Chapter 504: Are You Going to Die If You Don’t Show Off? (Part Two)
Xu Cheng exclaimed inside the room, “Think about being able to box again, dance again, and not use crutches or wheelchairs, and being able to live for another 20 years; being energetic like a tiger in its prime every day…”
“Alright, stop!” The four elders were immediately moved.
They obediently turned around and walked out of the courtyard and went to the drivers that were waiting outside to drive them home.
After sending them away, Xu Cheng finally walked out casually and sat down by the stone table beside Elder Ye.
“If you don’t want your Auntie Lan to marry Zhou Zheng, you can just directly say it. Your Elder Zhou isn’t the type to force this kind of thing,” Elder Ye said.
“It’s fine, Auntie Lan can decide herself. It will be nice for her to finally form her own home, and it will be like doing my mom a favor too.” Xu Cheng looked over at Elder Ye and continued, “How are you feeling these days.”
“Couldn’t be better!” Elder Ye laughed. “Now, my body is getting assessed every day, and those three doctors were all very curious about what kind of medicine you injected me with.”
“It’s a newly-developed medicine, it could be said to be a biological medicine, and it will be popularized in the future. It will take many traditional medicine’s place, but now is still not the right time,” Xu Cheng said. “Those three doctors probably already showed your physical report to the other four Grandpas, right? Otherwise, they wouldn’t be waiting so anxiously.”
Elder Ye nodded. “You won’t understand how painful it could be sometimes for people at our age. Sometimes, we would even wish to just end our lives and end the suffering, but we can’t.”
“I understand.” Xu Cheng bitterly smiled.
Elder Ye nodded. “So, who wouldn’t dream of being able to regain the energy from our younger days and be able to move around freely? Look at the five of us, we almost have to rely on crutches, wheelchairs, or other people to move around at all times. Sometimes, we couldn’t even go to the park. Whatever we eat or drink is also heavily restricted, and sometimes, it does feel like our lives are worse than a dog’s. But, there’s no other way. We have to stay alive, not for ourselves, but for our family.”
This was why the four elders were so anxious and nervous about Xu Cheng’s medicine development progress.
“Are you really certain that you can make that medicine again?” Elder Ye asked.
“I can, but in order to not attract attention, I will personally visit them at their estate to treat them. Having all of them come to your place will grab too much attention. I don’t want anyone to just come and find me in the future.”
The old man knew what Xu Cheng was worried about. If others were to find out and come to find Xu Cheng, and the moment Xu Cheng refuses, they would basically become enemies. Xu Cheng obviously didn’t want to be put into that kind of situation.
“Rest assured, you have five grandpas backing you up. We will teach whoever has the balls to threaten you a lesson they won’t forget!” Elder Ye promised.
Xu Cheng sighed, “My goal and stage aren’t in Huaxia. I didn’t save the five Grandpas so that I would be able to roam freely like a king inside Huaxia. Maybe just as you said, I hope that in the future, when I’m tired, my motherland can be the last harbor to shelter me!”
Elder Ye patted him on the shoulder and said, “Of course, rest assured. I don’t make promises often, but I can promise you, no matter what happens in the future, as long as you come back, the nation will protect you.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“Then, I can go out and have fun without any worries!” Xu Cheng smiled. “Old Man, I still have to borrow your car tomorrow morning. I will go and visit the other four grandpas one by one.”
“Alright, I will tell my driver ahead of time,” Elder Ye said.
Xu Cheng nodded and was about to go back to his room.
Elder Ye suddenly called him to a stop, “Wait, over the past few days, I felt that my power has returned to my prime state. Wanna spar a few rounds?”
Xu Cheng: “Uh… not necessary.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Elder Ye snorted, “I’ve already recovered from that kick of yours, and right now I feel I can completely counter it. If you come at me again with that, you will be no match.”
Xu Cheng sighed. “Old Man, I’m not gonna lie, I only used 30% of my power with that kick.”
Elder Ye’s eyes stared wide open. “Are you going to die if you don’t show off and just let me have my moment?”
