Extraordinary Genius - Chapter 589 – Come and work for me
Liu Jichuan’s eyes were in a daze due to the effects of the alcohol, but it opened up wide when he heard what Feng Yu asked. He looked at Feng Yu for a while and sighed: “Actually I also do not know the answer. My thinking was very extreme at that time. I felt that it was the Wen family that caused my family to be so poor. I had thought of teaching Dongjun a lesson. I only want to teach him a lesson. But I did not know what I want to do. I was confused at that time. How can you tell that I harbor ill intentions towards Dongjun?”
Feng Yu looked at Liu Jichuan’s eyes. He could tell that he was not lying. Feng Yu was relieved. Although Feng Yu could not know what had really happened in his previous life that caused Dongjun to be crippled at least this tragedy was avoided in this life.
Feng Yu laughed: “At that time, revenge was written all over your face. Dongjun and I are childhood friends and had grown up together. How can I not tag along for the hunt? When we met that bear, I thought we are all going to be dead. But luckily, we managed to kill that bear. I remembered that you are very accurate with guns. Have you killed anyone in the war?”
Feng Yu suddenly asked this question, and Liu Jichuan nodded. But he quickly shook his head.
“Brother Chuan, you don’t need to lie to me. I have met someone similar like you in Beijing. Both you and he have the same aura. You might not notice it. But when you enter a new place, you will look around and observe everyone there closely first. This is not something a normal soldier will do. These few years, the only war China is involved is with Vietnam. A few years ago, Shenyang Army had sent a batch of soldiers to the war front. You should be one of the soldiers that were sent there?”
Liu Jichuan stared at Feng Yu with his eyes wide opened. How did Feng Yu know about all these? This information was not even reported on the news. The news had stated that the war had ended in the 80s. How could Feng Yu know about all this classified information?
“From your eyes, I know I have guessed it correctly. You should be a scout or maybe with the special forces. I will not guess about this. If you are not willing to tell me, I will also not ask.” Ordinary soldiers will not have this habit to observe their surroundings before stepping in.
Liu Jichuan sighed and changed the topic: “A university undergrad is different. You are smart, unlike me. I cannot even get into junior high school. I heard that Uncle Feng is the district richest person?”
Feng Yu nodded. He did not try to hide this as this was also not a secret in the district. Feng Xingtai was more famous than Wen Deguang in the district.
“Brother Chuan, let’s not mention about the past. But with your skills, 500 RMB a month is too little.” Feng Yu purposely said.
“500 RMB a month is still considered little?” Liu Jichuan was shocked. That’s 500 RMB a month. Even the district chief does not get 500 RMB a month.
“You know my family’s processing food factory’s in charge gets how much salary a year? Also, Uncle Liu’s greenhouse’s vegetables can earn how much during winter? Is your 500 RMB a month really a lot? With this salary, how long do you need to save to buy a small apartment in the City? How long do you think it will take to save enough for Uncle Liu to live in the city?”
Liu Jichuan kept quiet. He thought he had found a high paying job and could earn lots of money to give his father a good life. But after hearing from Feng Yu, it seems that 500 RMB a month was really nothing.
But other than this job, what else can he do? The things he learned in the army were useless in this society. Only if he works in the Police force, he might be able to apply what he had learned. But how much can he earn? How long will it take for him to be promoted to be a leader?
“I bought the cigarettes. It’s so tiring. There are no shops around. I need to walk two streets to buy this. Here, Brother Chuan. Both of us do not smoke. Take it.” Wen Dongjun placed the packet of cigarettes in front of Liu Jichuan.
Liu Jichuan had also stopped smoking. Smoking can affect his stamina and addiction could affect his missions. But today, he suddenly craves for a smoke. He lit a cigarette and took a puff before he started to cough.
Wen Dongjun laughed and asked: “What are you two chatting about? I’ve been away for so long, and both of you did not even touch your glasses.”
Feng Yu did not let Li Jichuan speak and turned to Wen Dongjun: “Nothing. We are talking about that hunting trip.”
“Yes, yes, yes. Let’s talk about that hunting trip. That is shot was my life’s most accurate shot……” When mentioned about that hunt, Wen Dongjun talks nonstop.
Liu Jichuan only finishes half the stick of cigarette, and he threw it on the floor. He raised his glass and turned to Wen Dongjun: “Dongjun, I want to tell you something. That time when I call you out to hunt was actually to teach you a lesson.”
Wen Dongjun who was talking nonstop was confused. What are you talking about? You called me out to hunt was to teach me a lesson? Wen Dongjun turned and looked at Feng Yu.
Feng Yu sighed. This moron still wants to work for the government in the future? How could he compete with the others with his IQ?
Since Liu Jichuan admits this himself, Feng Yu did not stop him. This matter had been bothering Feng Yu for a long time and was finally resolved. But for Liu Jichuan, this matter was not closed yet.
Liu Jichuan told Wen Dongjun honestly about his family condition and what he was thinking at that time. He hopes to seek Wen Dongjun’s forgiveness.
Wen Dongjun slapped his thighs and said: “I thought it’s something important. You only want to beat me up that time. Luckily you did not try that time. Even now, you might not be my match.”
Feng Yu stared at Wen Dongjun. What was this moron thinking? He might be taller and bigger than Liu Jichuan, but if they were to fight now, he would surely lose. Liu Jichuan had fought in a war and had killed enemies before. All his moves were lethal.
“I had also fought with Feng Yu many times before. But we continued playing with each other less than a day after fighting.”
Feng Yu: “…….” What example was this?
“There was once he fell into a vegetable cellar in the woods (In the northeast villages, people tends to dig a hole to keep their potatoes, carrots, radish, and other vegetables. The hole will be covered with straws, wood and plastic sheets. The opening of the hole is 0.5m x 0.5m. Anyone might fall into the hole if they are not careful). If it were not for me helping him to get a ladder, he would have to live in the cellar for the next two weeks! Another time, he was bullied by other students. 3 students had ganged up on him in the toilet. If it was not for me, he might have cried from being beaten up by them. There was another incident when he fell into the ice hole. It was me who save him and pull him out…….”
Feng Yu was furious. “Enough. Can you stop talking about all these?” This moron does not know how to chat nicely!
“Fine, fine, fine. Let’s stop talking and drink. All our grudges will end with this drink. Bottoms up!”
Damn. Do you think I am afraid of you? I am drinking beer!
Liu Jichuan felt relieved when he heard that Wen Dongjun had forgiven him. He had asked himself many times when he was lying in bed. If Feng Yu had not tagged along for the hunt, will he do something regrettable like running away by himself and letting Wen Dongjun face the bear alone?
But Liu Jichuan had no answer. He did not know what he would do. But luckily everything was over.
After they finished their glasses, Feng Yu looked at Liu Jichuan and said: “Brother Chuan, come and work for me.”
