Chapter 249 . 1: White-Haired Elder (Part one)
In Shangcheng, under a pavilion in a park sat a white-haired elder . He was in a tunic suit . The white hair was a clear indication of his age, and he was sitting under the pavilion and drinking tea of a moderate temperature .
Beside him stood a guy in a similar tunic suit who was around 30-or-so years old . He stood humbly and respectfully beside the white-haired elder and reported, “I heard that an exceptional elite appeared in this year’s competition . He could face the rest of the top 10 elites and defeat them all with ease . His marksmanship and strength are both top tier, and I’ve seen the video, he can certainly be arranged into the 54 cards . However, the five elders rejected him due to his identity . ”
The elder laughed and said, “He’s called Xu Cheng, right?”
The guard beside him was surprised . “Master, you know him?”
The elder smiled . “That old friend of mine really respects this person and told me to come and meet him . So, here I am in Shangcheng . ”
The guard was a bit shocked . “Then, Master, you came out this early just to see this Xu Cheng guy? But, even if he’s truly a rare talent, isn’t he still not able to join the Dragon Division due to his sensitive background?”
The elder sighed, “How many years do you think I can still hold on?”
The guard immediately replied, “I don’t know, but I hope Master can live over a hundred years old . ”
“I’m already 102, that’s about time then . ” The elder faintly smiled .
The guard’s face changed . “Sorry, it was my mistake . ”
“No worries . ” The elder waved his hand and then said, “I know my own situation . There should be about 4 to 5 years left in my life, but ask yourself this, who can really inherit my legacy? No one, right? Those five elders can still wait, but I cannot anymore . If the Dragon Division still can’t find a successor for me, then I will be a sinner, and I’m afraid that the Dragon Division will really become history . Finding my next successor is my responsibility, and I need to do this to find the next protector for our nation . Otherwise, I will be ashamed to face our country . ”
The guard’s heart moved . “Master, you have your eyes on Xu Cheng?”
The elder shook his head . “We will see . Maybe he’s just a really talented genius but still can’t reach the standard of becoming my successor . We will see after we meet him . Alright, for the next two days, you don’t have to follow me . I will come and find you when I’m ready to go back . ”
The guard received the command . “Alright, I understand . I will take my leave now . ”
The elder nodded .
The guard bowed and left the pavilion, leaving the elder drinking tea and looking off into the distance . Shortly after, a tall burly guy appeared, and the elder saw him and smiled as he walked out of the pavilion and began to practice Tai Chi leisurely .
According to his intel, Xu Cheng would run through the park every morning to exercise, and he would do some more exercises in the park before running back . So, the elder decided to wait for him here .
Indeed, the guy that came over was Xu Cheng, and when he saw an elder this old doing Tai Chi this early in the morning, he was a bit shocked . Mostly it was because he had never seen this elder before and his sudden appearance was a bit strange . He stopped near the pavilion and began stretching while checking out the elder, and the elder was also checking him out .
Xu Cheng squatted down as he gasped for air . Then, he curiously looked at the elder and asked probingly, “Elder, how come I’ve never seen you before?”
The elder ignored him and continued on with his Tai Chi . Xu Cheng saw that there was tea in the pavilion and he was quite thirsty . “Elder, can I have a cup of tea?”
The elder had his eyes slightly closed as he answered, “Pour yourself a cup . ”
Xu Cheng walked over, poured himself a cup, and drank it . Then, he slightly smiled at the elder and said, “Elder, wouldn’t you feel bad that I wasted your tea?”
The elder opened his eyes, glanced at Xu Cheng, and faintly smiled . “You guessed what type of tea it is?”
