Yang Chen passed through the alley where cold wind blew. He arrived at a small courtyard where sunlight got blocked.
The courtyard looked obsolete and it wasnt locked. A few osmanthus and ginkgo trees were there, making the place look extraordinarily desolate. Evidently, the place wasnt cleaned in a long time as leaves covered the ground, not to mention the musty smell that filled the place.
At this moment, two people were stood in the courtyard. One of them was Gray Robe who intentionally attracted Yang Chens attention to come over, Gray Robe from Group of Eight.
The other person wore a dark green military coat. Facing away from the entrance, he seemed to be staring at the overcast sky absentmindedly. He was Lin Zhiguo whose personal bodyguard was Gray Robe.
After leaving Lin Zhiguo at the Tibetan area back then, Yang Chen didnt have too good of an impression towards this man who had lived more than 50 years. Yang Chen wasnt someone who would disrespect the elderly, but he wouldnt respect every single one of them, though he almost never had any senior. Lin Zhiguos past, the way he handled things, and his talking manner made Yang Chen really uncomfortable. He could understand why Abbess Yun Miao and Lin Ruoxi, Lin Zhiguos wife and granddaughter respectively, didnt want to accept him.
According his rank being the general of Yellow Flame Iron Brigade, Yang Chen didnt feel like it was any special.
When he saw Lin Zhiguo at this moment, Yang Chen didnt act too intimately. Tonelessly, he said, Is there anything you need, asking Gray Robe to lure me here?
You seem to be very busy, Lin Zhiguo said as he turned around, looking serious.
Speak. I still need to send people back, Yang Chen said. He didnt want to say much. In fact, he didnt like people who acted cocky just because they thought they were seniors.
Frowning, Lin Zhiguo said, Yang Chen, Im your senior. Do you lack even the most basic respect?
Yang Chen scowled as he shook his head like it was none of his business. When Ruoxi agrees to see you as her senior, Ill do the same as well.
Ruoxi is just throwing a tantrum at me. Havent you noticed?!
I only noticed that you definitely didnt act like a senior, Yang Chen said impatiently. If theres nothing you want to say, Ill leave now.
Lin Zhiguo stared at him angrily as exerted a stern aura. The atmosphere in the courtyard seemed like it was condensed!
Your attitude really disappoints me!
Yang Chen wasnt the slightest afraid. He smiled with contempt in his heart. If it wasnt for the blood relation between Lin Zhiguo and Lin Ruoxi, Yang Chen wouldve rushed over to kick him away as he got deeply challenged.
You better not treat me like how you act towards the people from Yellow Flame Iron Brigade. My patience has a limit too. Provoking me wont benefit you, Yang Chen said as he stared at Lin Zhiguo coldly.
Lin Zhiguos face reddened as he got extremely pissed. The longer he looked at Yang Chens expressionless face, the more he hesitated to land a strike. He wanted to put show the attitude of a senior to make Yang Chen admit his mistake. However, he didnt expect Yang Chen to ignore him completely.
More severely, Yang Chen developed hatred towards Lin Zhiguo, just like Lin Ruoxi.
This was undoubtedly an enormous blow to Lin Zhiguo. He wanted to make Yang Chen obey him based on his relationship with Lin Ruoxi. However, judging by the current situation, he caused an adverse effect.
Am I too impatient? Lin Zhiguo asked himself. The answer was ambiguous. He didnt know what it was.
Sighing helplessly, Lin Zhiguo revoked his ferocious look. He asked, Is Huier coming to Zhonghai next month?
Which Huier? Yang Chen asked.
Lin Hui, also called Hui Lin, my granddaughter, Lin Zhiguo answered
Yang Chen finally remembered that the old daoist Yun Miao sent her treasured little daoist to Zhonghai because she had too much time. Feeling a headache, he said, Yeah, she really is coming. Can you discuss with Abbess Yun Miao? Ask her to stop doing something this silly. I dont even have enough time to deal with my own matters. How am I supposed to take care of another adult?
Do you think that Yun Miao will listen to me? Lin Zhiguo asked.
Stupefied, Yang Chen slapped his forehead. Good point. All you can do is shout at your subordinates.
Humph. Lin Zhiguo was obviously resented. Sadly, it was actually a fact, so he didnt respond. You already married Ruoxi. I dont allow you to touch Hui Lin.
Who do you think I am? Why would I find trouble for myself? According to seniority, shes my sister-in-law. A rabbit wouldnt eat the grass outside its nest. I dont have that much time, Yang Chen said as he shook his head.
Dont think that Im not aware of how many women you have outside. Since you did it once, youll definitely do it again. I cant go defenseless against you, Lin Zhiguo said doubtfully. When the time comes, how are you going to arrange Hui Lin?
Annoyed, Yang Chen said, If I knew, do I have to be this irritated?
Let me give you an advice, Lin Zhiguo said.
What is it?
Let Hui Lin live with you and Ruoxi, Lin Zhiguo said.
Listening to what Lin Zhiguo said, Yang Chen was looking forward to the future. He wondered how Lin Ruoxi would react when she suddenly saw Hui Lin who appeared out of nowhere. Logically speaking, one of their grandmothers was the legal wife, while the other was a mistress. They should be enemies. The two women were both extraordinary characters, one was cold like frost and untalkative, while the other was adorable and pure.
More importantly, both of them didnt seem to have a liking to their grandfather. They could actually be good sisters, having a common enemy.
Whos older, Hui Lin or Ruoxi? Yang Chen had been struggling with this question.
A trace of affection appeared in Lin Zhiguos eyes. Hui Lin is 10 days younger than Ruoxi. Ruoxi was born on the fifth of September, while Hui Lin was the fifteenth of September.
Ahh Why does Hui Lin look a few years younger? The children raised in the mountains are indeed more naive, Yang Chen said emotionally.
Lin Zhiguo stared at Yang Chen angrily. You indeed have a thought towards Hui Lin?!
Hey, dont point fingers at me! Im a man who admits what I do. If I ever think of her that way, I wont try to hide my behaviour. Im different from you, even your own granddaughters dont call you grandpa, Yang Chen said as he pouted.
You! Lin Zhiguo got so mad that smoke came out from his body, but he couldnt come up with a single word to defend himself. His past demeanour caused this consequence on his younger generation!
Yang Chen knew that Lin Zhiguo wanted Hui Lin and Ruoxi get together because he didnt hope his descendants to exclude each other because of his mistake. Using such an opportunity, he hoped to make his granddaughters closer to each other.
Yang Chen didnt outright reject his request, but he had to talk it through with Lin Ruoxi when he returned home. Furthermore, how Hui Lins identity should be explained was a major problem as well. Although Lin Ruoxi would know the truth sooner or later, it was impossible for him to announce their relationship directly.
Do you need anything else? Yang Chen took out his phone to check the time. He still had three minutes left.
Lin Zhiguo pondered before saying, Gods Stone is still with you.
Yang Chen looked at Lin Zhiguo and smiled weirdly. Didnt Flower Rain witness me throwing Gods Stone to Yamata Sect?
That one is fake, Lin Zhiguo said as he looked directly into Yang Chens eyes. He seemed like he hoped to discover something by looking at Yang Chens facial expression, but soon he realized it was futile.
Yang Chens expression didnt change the slightest. Why do you say so? You should be clear that Gods Stone is only a burden to me, instead of a treasure. Passing it to Yamata Sect isnt a loss to me.
Although Gods Stone is useless to you, you should be aware that the world peace would be destroyed should it land on someone elses hands. I bet you mustnt want to witness such an outcome, so youve always brought Gods Stone with you, Lin Zhiguo said. Moreover, deliberately throwing a fake copy to Yamata Sect would only bring them trouble, as they would be the center of attraction. Not only would the other people who have their eyes on Gods Stone go for them, you could earn some time living peacefully. Am I right?
Smiling, Yang Chen replied, Youre merely making a guess. If Yamata Sect got the fake version, wouldnt they announce already?
Not only is Noriko Okawa an absolute Chinin expert, hes also the leader who has brought Yamata Sect to become one of the worlds strongest organisations single-handedly. He wouldnt announce his Gods Stone to be fake even if thats the case. Thats because no organisation would ever admit its real either. The more one tries to hide, the more one is exposed. Doing so will only attract more attention which leads to more enemies, Lin Zhiguo said. He then couldnt control his laughter. Noriko Okawa must be extremely pissed now. Your behaviour mustve brought Yamata Sect a lot of troubles. As far as Im concerned, Takamagahara from Japan alone has been attacking them as a test.
Think all you want. At the end of the day, Gods Stone isnt in my hands anymore. Whether you believe me or not, I hope that your Yellow Flame Iron Brigade can stop disturbing my private life for Gods Stone. You should be aware that I returned to the country to live a peaceful life, not to fight you all. Furthermore, all of you arent capable of being my opponents, Yang Chen said coldly before turning around and leaving.
After Yang Chen left, Gray Robe who had remained silent walked forward. Respectfully, he asked, Master, is the Gods Stone Uncle Yang gave away really fake?
[TL note: Gray Robe calls Yang Chen uncle because hes married to Lin Ruoxi.]
Shaking his head, Lin Zhiguo replied, I dont know, I was just testing him. After Yamata Sect got Gods Stone, they havent had any movement. Noriko Okawa is an old cunning fox. He knows that silence is the best choice regardless of the authenticity of Gods Stone.
If that really is fake, where would the real Gods Stone be? Gray Robe asked.
Only Yang Chen himself would know, Lin Zhiguo said before touching his forehead as he got a headache. Lets go, Gray Robe, well return to Beijing. This time, we didnt manage to stop Hannya and Tanuki from Yamata Sect because we had underestimated their abilities. When we return, well increase the training frequency for Second Dragon Group to let them reflect on themselves.
Master, I feel like Yong Ye from Second Dragon Group isnt suited to be their leader, Gray Robe said carefully.
Lin Zhiguo pondered as he sighed. I naturally know what youre talking about. However, our country is different from American and European countries. Although Yellow Flame Iron Brigade is independent on the government, were still a division of the country. Its impossible that we break away from those stupid eyes in the government. Since Yong Ye is still young, you and the few other old folks can lecture him more. Acting slightly arrogant while being rather capable is fine, well slowly change his attitude.
Gray Robe looked rather helpless. He said, Yes, Master.
By the way, I asked you to check on Yang Pojun from Yang clan earlier, regarding his abnormal act of moving the amphibious troops from Jiangnan District. Have you done it yet? Lin Zhiguo asked.
Nodding, Gray Robe replied, Yes, Master. Yang Pojun was indeed just following the request given by his relative from Zhonghais Yuan clan, to help destroy the former gang in Zhonghai, Dongxing Society. He didnt have any other intention.
This son of Yang Gongming is indeed complicated. He should have a secured seat in the next Politburo Standing Committee already. The seat of the vice chairman of the military commission may fall into his hands as well, Lin Zhiguo said as he analyzed the situation. Since the founding of the country, Yang clan and our Lin clan had had the most rigorous family traditions. However, none of Lin clans descendants are as dependable as Yang Pojun. How unfortunate
Master, when I checked on Commander Yang Pojun, I noticed something weird. Although it cant be confirmed yet, but it seems very possible Gray Robe said. He was struggling if he should reveal this information or not, but he did at last.
Oh? What is it? Lin Zhiguo asked. To him, it was rare for Gray Robe to speak this way.
Gray Robe leaned towards Lin Zhiguo before whispering something
Looking Lin Zhiguos facial expression, he suddenly got astonished and slowly got unbelievably silent
