Buy me a coffee or tip me on or .
Wen Deguang froze when he heard what Feng Yu said.
“What did you say? Change the name of the village?”
“That’s right. Can it be done?”
Feng Xingtai looked at Feng Yu, shocked. He scolded: “Whatare you up to again? Why are you thinking of changing the village’s name?”
Feng Yu looked at his father and smiles: “Dad, what do youthink if our village changes its name to Tai Hua Village? Does it sounds nice?”
Feng Xingtai’s eyes became bright: “huh? Tai Hua Village?Sounds nice. This is the perfect name for the village! Deguang, can the villagechange its name?”
Wen Deguang: “……” Like father like son!
“Although our village is not a county, the level is thesame. How can we just change the name as we like?” Wen Deguang replied.
“Why not? That XXX county had also changed its name to XXXdistrict.” Feng Xingtai said.
“That is a county converting to a district. How can this bethe same? What are you all thinking? You want to name the village after yournames?”
“That Shangzhi isalso named after someone’s name. Jingyu County is also the same. You reallythink I do not know about these?” Feng Xingtai retort. If the village could benamed as Tai Hua Village, it would be an honor to his family, and he couldboast for the rest of his life!
“Those are all national heroes who fought against theJapanese during the war. How can you compare yourself with them? Have you gonecrazy after you become rich? I had helped you change the names of the schools.Almost all the schools in the village and even the kindergartens are called TaiHua Kindergartens. Isn’t that enough? Now, you still want to name the villageas Tai Hua?” Wen Deguang replied angrily.
“Jealous! You are jealous! I ask you if there is anopportunity to change the name of the village, will you change it?” FengXingtai stared at Wen Deguang.
“Stop talking nonsense. Do you know how many approvals needto change the name of the village? This can only be decided by the CentralGovernment! You think this is decided by the City or the ProvincialGovernment?”
Feng Yu frowned. This troublesome? It’s only a small villageand had to be decided by the central government?
Feng Yu looked at his father and then asked: “Then how muchcontribution must I do before the Central Government agrees to change the nameof the village?”
Wen Deguang: “……” This brat still does not want to give up?!
“You think it can be settled with money? It is not aboutmoney. You have to make a significant contribution to the country or save a lotof lives. Even if you have a lot of money or paid a lot of taxes, it is alsouseless. But there might still be a solution. You can donate all your money tothe country, and the higher-ups might agree!”
What a joke! Donate all my money? I earned so much money andstill have not enjoyed my life. How can I donate away everything?
Furthermore, I can make use of the money I had to earn more.If the money were donated to those civil servants, it would be a waste!
Make significant contributions to the nation? That incidentis only a few years away. If I bring up this matter to the higher-ups, theyshould agree to my request.
Feng Xingtai patted Feng Yu on his back and said:“Nevermind. We are also moving to Bing City soon.”
“We are not coming back to the village? Don’t worry Dad. Iwill surely change the name of our village to Tai Hua Village within 5 years!”Feng Yu said.
“Ok, ok. I know you are capable of. Your face is all red. Ifyou can’t drink, then don’t drink. We have Jianlibao at home too.”
Feng Yu looked up to the ceilings. He was telling the truthbut was treated as a drunkard sprouting nonsense.
“Dad, if the name of the village cannot be changed, howabout the street names?” Wen Dongjun asked suddenly.
Eh? That’s a good idea. Feng Yu had not thought about this.
“Uncle Wen, Dongjun is right. It should not be a problem tochange the street names, right?”
“This…… It seems that the City government can decide onthis. But are you sure the city will give the approvals?” Wen Deguang asked.
“Leave this to me. Look at our village. Other than thiscrossroad junction is new, the rest of the roads are in dire conditions. Wewill donate money to build 8 or 10 concrete roads in the village. This way, wecan use my Dad and mum’s names as the road names?”
“Ah? You want to repair 8 to 10 roads? Your parents onlyhave two names.”
Feng Yu placed a few pairs of chopsticks on the table andpointed to one chopstick: “This road will be called Xingtai Road.”
“This will be called Xingtai Road 2. This will be calledXingtai Road 3. This will be Mu Hua Road. This will be called Mu Hua Road 2,and this will be Mu Hua Road 3. The rest will be numbered the same way.”
Wen Deguang looked at Feng Yu stunned. Smart brat. This way,all the roads in the village will be named after your parents? If you arrangedthe roads this way, then there will be no roads with other names in thevillage. It will be no difference from changing the name of the village.Everyone in the village will remember your parents’ names!
Feng Xingtai happily raised his glass: “This is a goodidea!”
Zhang Muhua frowned: “But this will be costly.”
“Mum, don’t worry about money. Our family does not lackmoney. Also, how much can repairing roads cost? Furthermore, the village isonly this big. The roads are not very long. A four-lane two direction road isgood enough. There is already a dirt road. We only need to clean up a bit andpave concrete over the existing roads. Think about this. In the future, thisroad will be called Mu Hua Road. Don’t you think the money is well spent?” FengYu asked.
Zhang Muhua starts to imagine and nodded. “I will let youand your father decide.”
Although this sounded ridiculous, Wen Deguang will not stopthem. His transfer order will only be out after the Lunar New Year. If he couldhelp Feng Xingtai settle this road building, it will be his credit.
Repairing road was not as easy as what Feng Yu claims. Itwill not be a small amount to build the roads. If not, the village would havebuild concrete roads a long time ago. But now, Wen Deguang would be the one whobrought in sponsors to build those roads.
The government and the village do not need to spend a singlecent, and the villagers will get to enjoy the benefits. This was a greatcredit.
The more credits Wen Deguang had, then he will be moreinfluential when he was transferred to a new place. He knew that it was ZhangHan’s father helping him to be promoted. If he could not achieve any results,it will be the end of his career. He was not even in his fifties and stillwanted to be promoted.
“Xiao Yu, come to my office tomorrow to discuss this.”
“We are having dinner now. Why are you talking about work?”Wen Dongjun’s mother grumbled.
“Ok. Let’s not talk about work. Old Feng, let’s have atoast!”
Feng Yu and Wen Dongjun also raised their glass and knocked.Wen Dongjun immediately bottoms up, and Feng Yu……. only took a sip.
Wen Dongjun stared at Feng Yu angrily. Feng Yu smiledembarrassedly and finished his glass of beer. This was home, and they were nottalking business. But Feng Yu was used to cheating while drinking.
“We are in a good mood today. Son, go and switch on theSuper VCD player. Your Uncle Wen and I will sing a few songs for everyone!”Feng Xingtai’s face was flushed.
Feng Yu and Wen Dongjun exchanged looks and made a decisionin their hearts. They will go to Wen Dongjun’s place immediately. These two oldmen can’t sing!
