Chapter 249: White-Haired Elder (Part two)
Xu Cheng nodded . “I don’t think there’s a person yet in the city of Shangcheng that can drink Dahongpao(TL Note: the most expensive type of Oolong tea there is) . Originally, since I offended too many people in this city, I was a bit cautious by your sudden appearance here . However, after I drank that tea, I realized that I’m overthinking it, because I haven’t offended someone at this high of a level . Someone like you probably wouldn’t lower yourself to my level to teach me a lesson, but I’m sure that you know me and that you came here just for me . From the temperature of the tea, you should have been waiting for me for about 20 minutes now . ”
The elder lowered his hand that was practicing Tai Chi and nodded admiringly at Xu Cheng . “A sophisticated mind, I like it . ”
Xu Cheng poured himself another cup proudly . He wasn’t treating himself like an outsider at all as he drank one cup after another, despite this tea being specially prepared for the highest class of people in the nation . Then, he wiped his mouth and asked the elder, “So, what are you here for? If you just want to make friends with me, then just for this tea, I accept it, and I will definitely benefit from this friendship in the future . ”
The elder smiled, feeling that this kid was pretty interesting, neither haughty nor humble but calm and collected . He said, “My tea isn’t free to drink . I have a set of fist strike techniques, and I will practice them once . If you can remember it, I can give you the rest of the tea leaves in the jar by the teapot . But if you can’t remember… I’m old and my body can’t take it after waiting for you here for too long so I’m afraid that I can’t go back on my own, so how about you carry me back on your back?”
Xu Cheng lifted his eyebrows . “Tai Chi?”
The elder shook his head . “No . ”
Xu Cheng: “Then you can demonstrate and I will watch . But even if I win the bet, I will carry you back . It’s just a small favor, just see it as me paying you for those two cups of tea . ”
“We will see if you can remember or not first . ” The elder slightly smiled and reached out his two hands . “Watch closely . ”
Xu Cheng nodded as he put his two hands together . How hard could a set of techniques demonstrated by this old man be? Unless it wasn’t martial arts but some dance moves, in which case he would forfeit immediately .
Then, he stared at the old man’s hands without even blinking . At the next instant, he just felt that his eyes suddenly lost focus as the elder’s hands began moving like shadows . Normal people could only feel that the elder made a few moves with his hands, but Xu Cheng had powerful sensory abilities . Very soon, he realized that the elder’s fist strike techniques were not simple at all . Just that speed alone would make it seem like the elder hands had barely moved in an ordinary guy’s eyes, but in fact, he had already practiced a full set of techniques . Even with his powerful ultrasonic sense, Xu Cheng could barely match the old man’s speed .
Then, Xu Cheng began sweating off his forehead .
After the elder finished his demonstration, he looked at him with a faint smile and asked, “How much do you remember?”
Xu Cheng said awkwardly, “Twe- Twelve strokes . ”
The elder’s eyes brightened . “Oh? You really remembered twelve strokes?”
Xu Cheng closed his eyes and recalled what just happened before his eyes and said sincerely, “Yes, twelve strokes . ”
The elder faintly smiled . “But I used thirty strokes just now . ”
Xu Cheng pouted . “If you practice it again, I promise I can remember them all . ”
The elder laughed and said, “It’s fine, I will come again tomorrow . I will leave now for today . ”
Then, the elder went to the pavilion to pick up the teapot set .
Xu Cheng became a bit anxious . It was like someone addicted to martial arts suddenly came across a top level hidden technique book and left everything else in his mind behind . He immediately got up, chased after the elder, said, “Let me carry you home . ”
