Zhongnan Mountains, the crown of the mountains, the number one Blessed Land under the heavens.
It was said that there were several tens of thousands of hidden cultivators in the mountain. There were all sorts of people, including many rare experts.
At this moment, at the foot of the mountain, near the observation platform, a man with beard was standing in front of a grave that didn’t even have a tombstone.
If there was an expert who understood Feng Shui, he would definitely break out in cold sweat after seeing the Feng Shui pattern of this graveyard.
What kind of person would dare to choose this place?
“Grandfather, your grandson is back.” The man said silently with his head lowered.
His name was Qin Sheng. He was 26 years old this year, 1.8 meters tall and could not be considered handsome.
After that, he poured a bottle of Xifeng 375 to his grandfather’s grave. His grandfather loved to drink this alcohol, and would drink one bottle every day.
It had been two years since Qin Sheng left this city that was known as the Ancient Capital of Thirteen Dynasties. Now, he could finally return.
More than two years ago, he had just graduated from university, but his grandfather had passed away at the age of eighty-nine. Grandfather had warned him before dying that he was not allowed to return within two years.
From then on, Qin Sheng followed his grandfather’s wishes and traveled to the north and south, visiting famous mountains and rivers. He would never forget how many times he had taken back his life from the gates of death.
“Grandfather, I’m going to Shanghai tomorrow. I’ll come back to see you again during the Chinese new year. Take care of yourself.” Qin Sheng said casually after cleaning up the grass on the grave.
Actually, Qin Sheng had a lot of questions to ask his grandfather, but now that his grandfather had passed away, there was no need for these words.
For example, he was not a Xi’an citizen. He only knew that his grandfather brought him here when he was four years old, and from then on, he took root here. As for where he actually came from and who his parents were, he didn’t know anything.
He had asked his grandfather, but grandfather had never said anything about it. He only said that when the time came, he would naturally know about it.
After accompanying his grandfather for a while, Qin Sheng left.
He had just returned, but would have to leave tomorrow. He had to meet some friends.
After Qin Sheng left, the two men that had been hiding in the forest slowly walked out.
“Master, are we really not going to see him?” The burly man with killing intent in his eyes said respectfully to the middle-aged man beside him.
The middle-aged man who wore comfortable linen shoes slightly bent his body. His face was full of wrinkles and his hair was slightly white. He did not speak, but his aura made people fear. Squinting his eyes, he looked at the receding Qin Sheng, then the unremarkable grave beside him.
“He’s gone. I want to know what kind of monster this old man could bring up.” The middle-aged man sneered.
It took 20 minutes to walk from the foot of the mountain to the road, but before Qin Sheng could reach there, he was stopped by three strangers. These three people clearly had bad intentions.
“Young man, hand over that thing and we’ll let you go.” The leader of the group was playing with a dagger as he smiled disdainfully.
“From Sichuan to Xinjiang, from Xinjiang to Qinhai, from Qinhai to Xi’an, aren’t you tired?” Qin Sheng laughed.
“Don’t waste your breath with us, otherwise you will know the consequences!”
Qin Sheng sighed, “How many times have I told you? I really don’t have that thing from your Song Family. Why don’t you believe me? Is there any trust between people? ”
“Looks like we can only make a move!” The man said angrily.
Qin Sheng felt it was boring and couldn’t be bothered to explain. He directly said, “Come on, don’t make a scene if you can make a move.”
When the three men heard this, they rushed towards Qin Sheng without a word.
“Do you all think I’m trash?” The corners of Qin Sheng’s mouth curled up slightly. If it wasn’t for his grandfather telling him to keep a low profile, he would have taken care of these followers long ago.
Now that the time that grandpa mentioned had passed, there’s no need for him to keep a low profile anymore. After all, if you had been despised by others for so long, they would truly think that you were a trash.
When one of the men was right in front of him, Qin Sheng kicked his wrist and caught the cold steel dagger in his hand. He bent down to avoid the sneak attack, then stabbed the dagger into the man’s thigh.
The other two men had already caught up to him. Qin Sheng calmly dodged their continuous attacks, looking for an opportunity to punch the man on the left in the chest, the man’s two ribs were broken. Then he jumped high and hit the man on the side with his knee.
At this moment, the man on the right side had already struck Qin Sheng’s back with his dagger. As if he had eyes on the back of his head, Qin Sheng turned around and dodged, with his hands grabbing onto the man’s wrist and stabbing the dagger into the shoulder of the man on the left side, the last punch struck the chin of the man on the right side and knocked him out, but he did not stop there, instead he pulled out his dagger and stabbed it into the arm of the man on the right side.
In just a few minutes, the battle had easily ended. Qin Sheng was not injured at all, and the three men had already lost their ability to fight. They were no longer a threat to him.
I was not a trash, why couldn’t you believe that?
“Come on, take out your cell phones,” Qin Sheng said with a mischievous smile.
The three heavily injured men stared at Qin Sheng in confusion. They had no idea about what he was trying to do. They didn’t expect him to be so fierce. Wasn’t he was powerless? Who said that?
“You’re not doing it? Then I’ll do it myself,” Qin Sheng snorted as he personally took out the phones of the three men.
With the phones in his hand, Qin Sheng muttered, “Damn, I’m using the old Nokia, you guys already use iPhone 6s, you really are rich.”
After saying that, Qin Sheng tossed his phone to the ground under the astonished gazes of the three men. He mustered his strength and stomped on it, cursing, “I’ll let you f * cking chase after me! I’ll let you chase!”
Soon, the three phones were completely destroyed by Qin Sheng. The three men wanted to cry but had no tears. They even had the intention to die. In the wilderness of the mountains, if no one saved them, they would die from excessive bleeding sooner or later.
After doing this, Qin Sheng left, leaving behind only three men who had paid their “respects” to Qin Sheng’s ancestors for the last eighteen generations.
Leaving Zhongnan Mountains, he tidied himself up, shaved and changed his clothes. When he returned to the city, it was already afternoon. Qin Sheng was going to a small district in the southern suburbs, where his benefactor lived. He had lived here since primary school, and treated the two elders of the family as his own parents. If it wasn’t for his grandpa’s refusal, perhaps he would have already acknowledged them as foster parents.
“Sheng’er, you’re finally back. Where have you been these past two years? Do you know we’re all worried to death?” Just as Qin Sheng entered, a middle-aged woman hugged him and cried.
Qin Sheng didn’t know how to explain. He knew that women treated him as their own son, so he could only hug her and let her vent her emotions.
After a long time, the woman finally regained her composure and sat down with Qin Sheng. Since she knew that Qin Sheng was coming back, she had prepared a table full of food.
“Aunt, I know everything about the family. Are you in good health? How is Uncle Lin inside?” Qin Sheng calmly said.
He knew that in the two years that he had been gone, his family had almost collapsed. Uncle Lin had been set up by someone and jailed, his company had been taken over by outsiders. He had almost lost his family.
“Sheng’er, your Uncle Lin’s life is full of bitterness …” Speaking of this matter, Wang Li began to cry again.
Qin Sheng felt a bit guilty. Although they were not his biological parents, he had long since joined this family. As a member of this family, as the only man except Uncle Lin, he should withstand the pressure, but …
“Aunt, it’s fine. Just think of it as a blessing. Grandfather said long ago that there would be a calamity in Uncle Lin’s middle age, he should know it himself. But as long as he’s alive, there’s still hope.” Qin Sheng consoled Aunt Wang.
“Your Uncle Lin is fine. He has already looked down on these matters …” Wang Li shook her head as she wiped away her tears.
Qin Sheng continued, “Besides, didn’t I just come back? I’ll think of a way to help Uncle Lin later.”
“Sheng’er, you can’t help me with your Uncle Lin’s matters, don’t hurt yourself. As long as you and Xinxin are fine, then I’m fine.” Wang Li didn’t take Qin Sheng’s words seriously. Qin Sheng was just an ordinary child and Old Lin was involved with a lot of things, what could he help with?
“Oh right, Aunt, where is Xinxin’s college?” Qin Sheng expressed his concern. Xinxin was the only daughter of Uncle Lin and Aunt Wang. She was younger than Qin Sheng by a few years, and Qin Sheng had always treated her as a younger sister.
“You studied in Shanghai, so she ran off to Shanghai.” Aunt Wang didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Qin Sheng said happily, “Shanghai, this is good. I’ll be going to Shanghai tomorrow. I will be able to take care of Xinxin in the future.”
“But you just came back?” Aunt Wang was surprised.
During dinner, Qin Sheng accompanied Aunt Wang. It was the same taste as before, when he ate the Eight Treasures chili bun, his eyes were red. He only had his grandfather and no parents, while others said that he was an orphan. He could only find the feeling of home here.
Grandfather said, you didn’t have to say out who had done you a favor, just remember it in your heart, when they needed you, stood out.
Thus, whoever bullied Uncle Lin’s family, Qin Sheng would return the “favor” sooner or later.
After dinner, Qin Sheng left the Lin Family and arrived at a barbeque square on the north side of Yan Ta Road. There was a restaurant called Shu Nan Bamboo Stick Barbecue, it’s really delicious. In the past, whenever he came back, he would always come here with a few friends.
Qin Sheng arrived early. He called his four best friends. Everyone was surprised by his reappearance, but there were only two people who could come. Qin Sheng had nothing to say about this.
He knew that life was always moving further, and many things would never return to the past.
“Old Qin, damn it, we all thought you had gone missing. Where have you been these past two years?” His two best friends arrived at the same time. The one who spoke was Meng Zhe, and he was very handsome. In the past, they often called him pretty boy.
“Damn. When you called me, I thought you were a liar, but I didn’t expect that it’s really you!” Hao Lei cursed loudly. He had been a soldier before and had just come back from the military. He was tall and slim.
“Sit down. There are some things that are hard to put into words.” Qin Sheng smiled as he embraced his two best friends.
After the three of them sat down, Hao Lei shouted, “Waiter, 3 boxes of 9 °, 20 Yuan of meat, 20 Yuan of kidneys, 3 pieces of sesame seed cake, 1 dish of roast eggplant, 1 piece of cake …”
“Tonight, we won’t return until we’re drunk!” Meng Zhe said happily.
In this world, people needed to drink, but only by drinking with the right person, people could be able to enjoy themselves to their heart’s content. If one were to drink with an uninteresting person, it would only be drinking and meaningless.
Therefore, Qin Sheng was elated. “F * ck you! I’m not afraid of you! No return until we’re drunk!”
The three of them clinked glasses three times before finally starting to chat.
“How have you been these past two years?” Qin Sheng asked.
“I just got demobilized and haven’t found a job yet. Old Meng is already engaged. He will get married next year. When that happens, you’d better not go missing!” Hao Lei laughed.
“What about them?” Qin Sheng continued asking.
Old Meng sighed and said, “Old Xu and Wu Yong are not on the same boat with us now. You probably made a phone call too. We haven’t seen each other more than a few times every year. You understand what I’m going to say…”
Qin Sheng sighed, “Then let’s stop talking. Drink!”
“Come, come, come. Drink, drink!”
It was only the beginning of October, so the weather was still a liitle hot and stuffy. The barbecue square was bustling with activity, people were eating meat and drinking, laughing and scolding. It was a familiar place, a familiar feeling.
Qin Sheng felt that all of this was wonderful.
“Old Qin, what happened with you these two years? Can you tell us more?”
“We’ll talk about it in the future. It’s fine anyway.”
“You brat, then what do you plan on doing in the future?”
“Train at 1 am. After drinking with you guys, I’m going to Shanghai. From now on, I will develop in Shanghai …” Qin Sheng explained. He had nothing to hide from his best friends.
“Shanghai? Su Xin seems to have stayed in Shanghai as well.”
“Old Meng, shut up!” When Hao Lei heard this, he hurriedly stopped him. Meng Zhe also realized that he had said the wrong thing.
Qin Sheng shook his head, “Nothing, just say what you want to say. It’s all in the past now.”
“Drink, drink, stop spouting nonsense!”
Before they could finish the three boxes of beer, the three of them had already left. After all, Qin Sheng was going to take the train later, and the others had matters to attend tomorrow.
Qin Sheng took a taxi to the train station. He didn’t have much luggage. Sitting in the taxi, his eyes were hazy as he watched the night scenery of the city through the window. The mottled walls told the story of time. The familiar name of the road had already changed. The city was like an old man in his twilight years, coldly watching the changes of the times from the sidelines.
When the train started moving, Qin Sheng knew that he was about to start a new journey …
