Chapter 1449: Very Pure and Ambiguous/ Let Them Go
Chapter 1673: Very Pure and Ambiguous
Chen Fei’s complexion was cloudy. Obviously, he was really struggling. Seventh Grandfather Chen’s majesty was deeply entrenched in the Chen Family Village. Chen Fei had also respected and loved Seventh Grandfather Chen like everyone else since he was a child!
However, although Seventh Grandfather Chen was very majestic and his words held enormous weight, he was a symbol of justice in the village. Seventh Grandfather Chen would resolve contradictions fairly as long as the people involved came in front of him. Everyone in the Chen Family Village would submit to Seventh Grandfather Chen.
Everyone would listen to Seventh Grandfather Chen’s words. No one would hold any complaints in their heart, and no one would violate his orders.
Chen Fei was put in a difficult situation due to this kind of thought that had been instilled into him at a young age. Although he had left the Chen Family Village for many years and taken up a leadership position in the police unit, the respect for Seventh Grandfather Chen in his heart had not lessened even by a bit.
However, today’s incident caused Chen Fei to have rebellious thoughts for the first time! Seventh Grandfather Chen’s approach had violated Chen Fei’s bottom line. Chen Fei could neither follow nor execute his words or decision!
How could Chen Mengyan’s life-long event be decided by others’ casual words? Let alone Chen Mengyan now had a boyfriend, even if she did not have a boyfriend, Chen Mengyan’s consent must be obtained first before deciding this matter.
Thinking of this, Chen Fei gritted his teeth, “Seventh Grandfather Chen, please calm down first. He is Mengyan’s boyfriend. It is inevitable for him to be emotional…”
“Boyfriend? What boyfriend?” Seventh Grandfather Chen was furious. Now that he saw Chen Fei speak up for Yang Ming, he was even more enraged, “Okay, then I announce that he is no longer her boyfriend. Chen Xiaolong is Chen Mengyan’s boyfriend!”
When Chen Xiaolong heard these words, his face bloomed with joy while Yang Ming felt mad and ludicrous. He thought, Even if you are the Secretary-General of the United Nations, you can’t control this thing too, right? Announcing? Do you think you are an emperor in the past? Your words are an imperial decree? You can even grant marriage?
Chen Mengyan’s face was still pale. She was a little overwhelmed. She had never experienced this kind of scene. She also saw that her parents were in a very difficult situation when facing Seventh Grandfather Chen. Chen Mengyan was also clear in her heart about the difficulties in resisting an old man who they had respected from the bottom of their hearts from a young age!
It was not easy for her father to say those previous words decisively. She could imagine what kind of struggle he had in his heart! On the other hand, Yang Ming had relatively little respect for Seventh Grandfather Chen. In Yang Ming’s eyes, he was just a veteran old man.
Even though Yang Ming respected the elderly and loved the young, he would not show any mercy for Seventh Grandfather Chen who took advantage of his seniority and did as he pleased out of conceit.
However, Chen Fei spoke first before Yang Ming could. This somewhat surprised Yang Ming. Chen Fei was determined to resist to the end!
“Now there is freedom of love and marriage,” Chen Fei hesitated a while and said. “Seventh Grandfather, what you are doing is in violation of the Marriage Law.”
“Marriage Law? Ha!” Seventh Grandfather Chen coldly glanced at Chen Fei. “Okay, Little Feizi, you are capable now. Now that you have become the bureau chief, you actually talk to me about the law? Have you forgotten? When you were a kid in the Chen Family Village, who upheld justice for everyone? Who took charge of fairness? In this Chen Family Village, I am the law! ”
“…” Chen Fei’s face was bitter. Talking about these things with Seventh Grandfather Chen was simply a headache as Seventh Grandfather Chen didn’t listen.
“You are Seventh Grandfather Chen, right?” Yang Ming straightened his body and took a half step forward. Yang Ming knew that it was useless for anyone else to speak at this time. He could only speak for himself, “I don’t care what you do in the Chen Family Village, but I can tell you that I am not from the Chen Family Village and I am not under your command. Moreover, this is not the Chen Family Village, but Song Jiang. This is the Song Jiang International Hotel!”
“It’s okay that you are not. But Chen Mengyan still is!” Although Seventh Grandfather Chen was extremely angry, he could see that Yang Ming would not listen to him as he was not from the Chen Family Village. However, it didn’t matter as Chen Fei was from the village. He only needed to talk to Chen Fei, “Chen Fei, I am asking you now. Do you still recognize me as Seventh Grandfather?”
“This… Seventh Grandfather..” Chen Fei was in a dilemma. He was very clear in his heart that if he spoke the word “recognize”, Seventh Grandfather Chen would continue to speak about Chen Mengyan and Chen Xiaolong’s matter. Moreover, he would be unable to refute. But if he said “don’t recognize”, he would feel bad and it would go against his conscience.
So, Chen Fei was in a dilemma.
“Alright, Seventh Grandfather Chen, take your petty trick back!” Yang Ming waved and stopped Chen Fei from continuing. “Seventh Grandfather Chen, I might as well tell you clearly that no matter what Uncle Chen says, it will be useless as long as I am here. Chen Mengyan will not get engaged with Chen Xiaolong. If you like daydreaming, then I advise you to go home and read more fantasy novels. I recommend this book called ‘Pursuing Beauty after Reincarnating’ written by Fishman The Second. It is good. I have read it. You can check it out. ”
Seventh Grandfather Chen burst into anger at Yang Ming’s words. His right hand trembled and pointed at Yang Ming, “You-you-you impudent kid. What did you say? What? ‘Pursuing Beast after Reincarnating’ ? How dare you call me a beast? You even want to fool me?”
“Seventh Great Grandfather, please cool down … It’s important to take care of yourself!” Chen Xiaolong saw that Seventh Grandfather Chen was almost out of breath due to anger, so he hurried over to support Seventh Grandfather Chen. He stroked his back to ease his breath while explaining, “Seventh Great Grandfather, he did not call you a beast. He is not talking about Pursuing Beast after Reincarnating, but Pursuing Beauty after Reincarnating. It is a novel …”
While Chen Xiaolong explained, he thought in his heart, The title of this book sounds very attractive. Let me get my mobile phone to read it later on the Internet. Maybe I can learn some skills to pursue beauty. Then, I can pursue Chen Mengyan. Gaga!
It was better if Chen Xiaolong didn’t explain it. Once he explained, everyone’s eyes focused on him. Chen Zhiye also frowned and said in his heart, Why are you explaining for Yang Ming? Isn’t he your enemy now?
Chen Xiaolong did not think so much just now. He used to read a book by Fishman The Second called ‘Very Pure and Ambiguous: The Prequel’. It was well written. That was why he subconsciously explained just now. He never thought that he would be explaining on behalf of Yang Ming.
Seeing the hostile gaze of his father and his uncle, as well as everyone’s strange gaze, Chen Xiaolong also knew that he should not have explained this on behalf of Yang Ming just now. The situation now was that the more Yang Ming was placed on the opposite side of Seventh Grandfather Chen, the more Seventh Grandfather Chen could go all out to speak for him!
Thinking of this, Chen Xiaolong quickly modified his remark and said, “No, Seventh Great Grandfather, Yang Ming scolded you as a beast just now. He said that you are a dreaming beast. He was actually fooling you!”
“Huh?!” Yang Ming was still wondering why Chen Xiaolong explained for him. Before he could figure it out, Chen Xiaolong made a move again. This immediately stunned Yang Ming!
This Chen Xiaolong is too ruthless. He is a talent indeed. A very wicked talent.
This time, the Chen Family Village’s members looked even more strangely at Chen Xiaolong. Chen Zhifu, as well as Chen Zhiye, were even more annoyed! They stared fiercely at Chen Xiaolong. Especially Chen Zhiye, he had never been angry with his son, but he now had the urge to give his son a good beating!
Since you have explained it, then let it be. No one said anything about you. But why did you modify your remark after explaining? It would be easy if Seventh Grandfather Chen misunderstood that Yang Ming was scolding him. But after you explained it, you said that Yang Ming was scolding him. Even if Seventh Grandfather Chen is old and a dotard, it is impossible for him to understand what is going on …
How could Chen Zhiye endure this embarrassment?
Sure enough, after listening to Chen Xiaolong’s explanation, Seventh Grandfather Chen’s face eased slightly. Although he still glared at Yang Ming fiercely, his body was no longer shaking.
However, the good times don’t last long. Chen Xiaolong’s next sentence made Seventh Grandfather Chen’s body shake once again. This time, not only was his whole body shaking and his face green, but his breathing had also accelerated!
This scared Chen Xiaolong, Chen Zhifu, Chen Zhiye and the others. They couldn’t be bothered to scold Chen Xiaolong or deal with Yang Ming. They all surrounded Seventh Grandfather Chen. Some held his back while others press his philtrum . However, Seventh Grandfather Chen’s body was still twitching. His eyes rolled and he passed out…
“Seventh Great Grandfather!”
The crowd immediately became a mess. The sound of cries, exclamations, and phone calls kept resounding.
Chapter 1674: Let Them Go
After seeing that Seventh Grandfather Chen was still breathing, everyone was relieved. It seemed that Seventh Grandfather Chen had just fainted out of anger; it was not life-threatening.
Nevertheless, Chen Zhifu still called the emergency number immediately. Meanwhile, Chen Zhiye stared at Yang Ming fiercely like a tiger glaring at its prey and said, “Yang Ming, is it? This matter is not settled yet. If anything happens to Seventh Grandfather, you better be prepared.”
This was the first sentence that Chen Zhiye had spoken to Yang Ming after so long. The apparent majesty of a superior was suddenly revealed. The threat in his words was even more spine-chilling.
An average person would definitely be suppressed by this power. But who was Yang Ming? Let alone that Chen Zhiye’s existence was just at this level, Yang Ming had also seen many people who were even more powerful. Who did not have a higher status than Chen Zhiye?
Therefore, the majesty of Chen Zhiye and his threats were worthless in Yang Ming’s eyes. He replied coldly, “Chen Zhiye, you are in my territory. I have saved you enough face. If you want to continue to shame yourself, I will just let you be. I want to see what you can do. Did Seventh Grandfather’s faint have anything to do with me? People here can see clearly that it was your precious son who angered him to the point of fainting. Don’t simply catch someone to shift the blame.”
“You-” Chen Zhiye didn’t expect Yang Ming to be so calm and assert eloquently despite his threat. In his opinion, Yang Ming would surely be intimidated by his coercion and threat to the point of panic.
“Don’t say ‘you’ anymore. I’m warning you today. I don’t care how capable you are in the south. This is Song Jiang. In Song Jiang, I advise you to obey the law and be a good citizen. Otherwise, hehe…” Yang Ming didn’t say the next words because Chen Fei was present. It would be inappropriate to threaten. Although he didn’t say it directly, the threats in the words were no less apparent than Chen Zhiye’s words before. In fact, it was even more direct.
“You… Fine!” Chen Zhiye’s expression was uncertain. He could naturally tell that Yang Ming was threatening him, but he missed Yang Ming’s point.
He didn’t think that Yang Ming could do anything to him. In Chen Zhiye’s opinion, Yang Ming said to “obey the law” because Chen Fei was the bureau chief of the Song Jiang police bureau!
This was an implicit reminder to behave honestly. Otherwise, Chen Fei would not show mercy. This was Song Jiang and not the south. It was not a place where Chen Zhiye could play around!
However, Yang Ming didn’t mean to use Chen Fei to suppress Chen Zhiye! Yang Ming alone was enough to deal with him! Whether you play cruel or shady tricks, I will accompany you to play even more cruelly and shadily!
Speaking of being shady and cruel, who can compare to Yang Ming, the King of Assassins? If Chen Zhiye wants to play with identity and background, that’s good. Yang Ming was not afraid of anyone because of his identity in the Supernatural Investigation Bureau. Xia Bingbao relied on him. So long as Yang Ming didn’t cause any big calamity, he would be able to settle things for Yang Ming.
“Uncle Chen, let’s go. It doesn’t make much sense to stay here.” Yang Ming glanced at the two brothers, Chen Zhiye and Chen Zhifu, then he looked at Seventh Grandfather Chen who was held by the people on the sofa. He seemed to have eased a little. He had just opened his eyes, but couldn’t speak yet. Then, Yang Ming said to Chen Fei, “If they are willing to return to their hometown with glory and riches, then let them return. Let’s not join in. As for Seventh Grandfather Chen, he is no longer the fair Seventh Grandfather in your memory. Everyone has a selfish heart. Chen Xiaolong is his great-grandnephew. Hmph! ”
Yang Ming didn’t finish his words. He was careful not to cross the line. However, he believed that Chen Fei should be able to understand his underlying meaning.
Sure enough, Chen Fei let out a long sigh helplessly. He glanced at the Chen Family brothers, and then he looked at Seventh Grandfather Chen. Next, he stood still, bowed to Seventh Grandfather Chen solemnly, and said, “Seventh Grandfather, thank you for your care and concern before this. Thank you for matching me and Fangyu. But today’s matter is about Mengyan’s life-long happiness. Please pardon Little Fei for not being able to comply with your wishes. I hope Seventh Grandfather will forgive me! In the future, if Seventh Grandfather still recognizes Little Fei, Little Fei will still respect Seventh Grandfather as before. If Seventh Grandfather does not recognize Little Fei, Little Fei will still be the same in his heart, respecting the Seventh Grandfather who once had an indomitable spirit! ”
After saying these words, Chen Fei bowed one last time. After three bows, he cupped his hands, “Seventh Grandfather, Little Fei shall leave first.”
Seventh Grandfather Chen looked at the decisive Chen Fei. He wiggled his lips twice, but he didn’t say a word. After tonight’s incident, he seemed to have suddenly become a lot older. He no longer had that previous hale and hearty energy.
Yang Ming sighed secretly looking at the dispirited Seventh Grandfather Chen. He did not want to make a fuss with an old man anymore. He just shook his head and said, “Seventh Grandfather Chen, I would humbly like to advise you one sentence. Children and grandchildren can take care of themselves when they grow up, and their parents or grandparents don’t have to work too hard for their future. In the end, things didn’t work out today, and you even got into trouble yourself. You lost your reputation in front of everyone for no reason. Let go and cheer up a little bit. May your heart be light and gentle. It is the most important thing for someone your age. ”
Yang Ming didn’t scold Seventh Grandfather Chen in the end, but told him such heartfelt words. If Seventh Grandfather Chen was wise, he would let go of all this and stop worrying about these useless things.
“Fangyu, Mengyan, Yang Ming, let’s go,” Chen Fei turned around and said to Yang Ming and the others.
“Wait! You all can’t leave!” Chen Zhifu spoke up at this time!
“Zhifu, what do you mean?” Chen Fei frowned and glanced at Chen Zhifu, but it was inappropriate to be mad.
“Chen Fei, you are from the Chen Family Village. Seventh Grandfather is like this now. Isn’t it all because he was angered by your daughter’s impudent boyfriend? You can go, but he has to stay!” Chen Zhifu said in a cold and shady manner. “Since you are the police bureau’s chief, you should be clear that we are the victims. We want Yang Ming to stay and wait until we are sure that Seventh Grandfather is alright, then he can leave. Otherwise, if he leaves, what should we do if he doesn’t take responsibility?”
“Ha!” Yang Ming was not furious but felt amused instead. Looking at Chen Zhifu, there was a flash of disdain in his eyes. “Chen Zhifu, you know the truth of this matter in your heart! Although I, Yang Ming, am not afraid, I am not willing to be your nephew’s scapegoat for your nephew! Today, I am leaving. I’ll see who can stop me?”
Chen Zhifu glanced at Chen Zhiye. He initially wanted Chen Zhiye to use the power of his bodyguards to force Yang Ming to stay! How could Chen Zhifu be doing this because of Seventh Grandfather Chen? He had already hated Yang Ming for a long time. He was going to wait for Chen Fei to leave, then find a secluded place to teach Yang Ming a lesson.
But Chen Zhiye was indifferent, so Chen Zhifu really did not know what to do! In fact, Chen Zhiye also had his own thoughts. He had taken Yang Ming’s warning to heart just now. He also had some fear of Chen Fei’s identity. If he ordered his bodyguards to restrain Yang Ming forcefully, not only would he be unable to keep Yang Ming, but it may also be counterproductive. It would allow Chen Fei to arrest these two security guards for committing crimes such as obstructing the personal freedom of others. It would not be worth it. Therefore, Chen Zhiye really did not dare to act rashly!
“Let them go!” Just when everyone was deadlocked, Seventh Grandfather Chen suddenly spoke.
“Seventh Grandfather? You …” Chen Zhifu turned his head in disbelief. He looked at Seventh Grandfather Chen on the sofa, as did Chen Zhiye.
“I said, let them go.” Seventh Grandfather Chen repeated his words.
“This…” Chen Zhifu suddenly felt a little awkward. Before, he still wanted to make Yang Ming stay in the name of Seventh Grandfather, but unexpectedly, Seventh Grandfather himself wanted to let Yang Ming go.
“Seventh Great Grandfather, you can’t let him or Chen Mengyan go!” Chen Xiaolong yelled hurriedly.
Seventh Grandfather Chen glanced at his beloved great-grandnephew and sighed. He thought of what Yang Ming had said just now: children and grandchildren can take care of themselves when they grow up, and their parents or grandparents don’t have to work too hard for their future!
Although it is just a simple sentence, how reasonable is it? I have never done anything bad in my life except for this time. After knowing that Chen Mengyan has a boyfriend, I still insisted that she marry my great-grandnephew. How unreasonable is this?
