Chapter 204: You are Too Awesome (2) (Part one)
– 5th Military Region –
At night, on a hill, Xu Cheng was smoking a cigarette and looking at the forest ahead of him. Not long after, a woman slowly climbed up the hill as well. She thought Xu Cheng was looking at the sunset, and when she sat down beside him and looked towards the direction of his eyes, she saw a team of soldiers training on an empty ground in the forest. They were Hu Bing and his team, and Xu Cheng was here because he wasn’t allowed to train with them.
Lin Chuxue said, “The show’s almost done shooting and the crew’s leaving tomorrow morning. Right now, they are having a celebration party at the cafeteria. Are you not going?”
Xu Cheng watched Hu Bing and his guys train and said a bit melancholically, “It’s fine, I don’t belong to that circle anyways.”
Lin Chuxue could hear the faint melancholy in his voice. She took his hand and said, “I will wait for you to return from this competition to find me. I don’t have to go back to the British Empire, you don’t have to force yourself. We can take this slowly.”
Xu Cheng turned around to look at her as the setting sun shone on her beautiful face. He nodded. “Alright, after the competition is over, I will come out and find you.”
Lin Chuxue got up satisfied, walked down the hill, and left.
Xu Cheng looked at the sun setting down completely, and then he began entering his own devilish training state.
The next day, Lin Chuxue came to the independent dorm building that Xu Cheng lived in before leaving. Due to the heavy training, Xu Cheng was still deep asleep. She didn’t disturb Xu Cheng, only coming quietly to his bed. Lifting up her hair that carried a faint fragrance so it wouldn’t spill onto Xu Cheng’s face, she lowered her head, lightly left a kiss on his forehead, and left.
A week later, the 36 Army Competition began in full swing.
Xu Cheng, Hu Bing, and the others carried their luggage and boarded the plane to Yanjing to participate in the competition. The atmosphere was quite awkward for Xu Cheng since he didn’t train with the rest of the team, and even for the seating on the plane, he sat with a veteran that was in charge of the reception at the competition later.
Instructor Yan saw Hu Bing and the rookies were whispering to each other and chatting but Xu Cheng was just there by himself in headphones listening to music. He walked over and gestured for the veteran to give him the seat. Then, he sat down, took off one side of the headphones, and said, “What is it, not happy?”
“Nope, I’m used to it,” Xu Cheng said indifferently.
Head Instructor: “How about next year. Next year, your brother I’m going to train an elite troop centering around you. Sorry about this year.”
Xu Cheng smiled and didn’t say anything.
At this time, the flight attendant asked everyone to put away their electronic devices, and when she walked past Xu Cheng, both of them were a bit surprised.
The two of them said each other’s name in unison.
Shen Yao smiled. “What are you doing not in Shangcheng but heading to Yanjing?”
Xu Cheng: “I’m not staying in Shangcheng anymore. I already went back to the military, and this time it’s like a business trip to Yanjing.”
“No wonder, there are so many soldiers on this flight. Just remember to put your phone on airplane mode or turn it off,” Shen Yao said as she rolled her eyes at him and left. On his side, the head instructor’s mouth became wide open and he immediately asked Xu Cheng, “You know her?”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Yeah, she’s the one that rented my condo back in Shangcheng and lived with me for a bit.”
“Lived with you?!” The head instructor’s voice went up a few pitches. He was shocked and looked at Xu Cheng as if he was going to beat him up. “Holy fack, why didn’t you tell me about this? If you told me that the Number 1 Flight Attendant was living with you, I would’ve come to your house in Shangcheng everyday for food!”
“Number 1 Flight Attendant?” Xu Cheng laughed, “Bro, since when did you pay attention to this kind of thing?”
“I’m always flying in and out of cities for business meetings and saw too many girls. With my assessment on all of the flight attendants girls in this nation, Shen Yao belongs to the most beautiful and professional kind. I was even thinking about introducing her to you, but little did I know, you little brat already knows her and was even cohabitating with her? Xu Cheng, I realized that you have fallen.”
Xu Cheng was speechless. “When I’m single, you call me gay, when I’m living with a girl you say I’m fallen, do you want me to just go and look for a trans now?”
Chapter 204: You are Too Awesome (2) (Part two)
The head director lowered his voice and asked, “Is she really the one that was living with you?”
Xu Cheng: “No, there’s one more that was also living with me.”
The head instructor’s eyes stared wide open as he blinked and said, “Holy crap, you pretend to be an innocent little virgin in front of me but you are already doing the tricycle behind my back?!”
Xu Cheng: “Tricycle my azz, I was renovating my condo and broke down the walls between three units to connect them as one, but the property management team didn’t communicate well and those two girls came after me and shamelessly decided to stay. We were sharing the roof but not the room, what tricycle are you talking about?”
Head Instructor: “No wonder, that‘s what I thought. How could the Number 1 Flight Attendant have a crush on you and then do the extreme sports with you.”
Xu Cheng shrugged nonchalantly, and he didn’t tell him about Shen Yao’s confession to him. Sometimes, some things are better left unsaid.
After the plane arrived at the airport in Yanjing, Shen Yao struggled in the lounge for a while. When she left Shangcheng, she already deleted all contacts of Xu Cheng, wanting to erase all the memories. But when she saw him just now, her heart would still beat out of place. She didn’t forget about him at all. It was manageable when she didn’t see him, but when they met again, she…
Seeing the passengers come out, Shen Yao still came out from the lounge and called Xu Cheng who came out later than most people.
“Wait up, Xu Cheng.”
Xu Cheng was walking side by side with the head instructor, and when he heard Shen Yao calling him, he turned around.
Shen Yao came over, and she said hesitantly, “What’s your number?”
The head instructor’s eyelids jumped.
Xu Cheng bitterly smiled. “Shen Yao, we really aren’t compatible.”
“Shut up.” Shen Yao glared at him and then reached out with her hand. “Give me your phone. We can’t even be friends? Or do you want Chuxue to not be best friends with me as well?”
Xu Cheng passed his phone to her.
Shen Yao used her phone and dialed her number. Then, after saving it, she returned it to him and said, “This is my new number. You can call if you have something or nothing.”
Then, Shen Yao walked past him in her high heels and left.
The moment she left, the head instructor instantly dropped to his knees.
“Big Brother, what are you doing?” Xu Cheng was a bit surprised.
The head instructor hugged onto Xu Cheng’s legs. “Bro, I was wrong. You are so awesome, why would you need to go and flirt with her yourself? Please hurry and teach me how to not do anything and have goddess-level beautiful girls chase me themselves! Please teach me!”
Xu Cheng was speechless. This guy really scared him out of the blue. “Big Bro, can you get up? I’m not that amazing.”
Head Instructor: “Yes, yes you are. You are awesome because you are so ugly yet you could get that goddess to chase after you. What’s more awesome is that you rejected her but she still wants your number, to stay as friends, and even told you to basically booty call her anytime. What kind of level of awesome is that? Sorry I was blind to have always called you an ugly fack that no one loves, and it turned out that you were not loved by no one but loved by everyone, and that was why you had been so lowkey, always deliberately hiding your awesomeness so you don’t end up even turning some of our comrades gay.”
Xu Cheng didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry. Was he really complimenting him or roasting him?
Xu Cheng rolled his eyes. “Big Bro, just stop…”
Head Instructor: “No, you are my big bro! In the realm of getting girls, I only accept you as my big bro. When I landed your sister-in-law (TL Note: author meant he landed a girl and made her the sister-in-law to Xu Cheng since he was Xu Cheng’s big bro), it took me two years, it wasn’t easy at all! But today, you taught me a lesson, you are a role model for all of us ugly people!”
Xu Cheng: “…”
