Chapter 534: Please Keep Spurring Me On!
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
In the mansion of the Shang Family, Shang Ling, who was pretending to be in secluded cultivation, also heard the news that Xu Que was about to leave. Therefore, he finished his “secluded cultivation” immediately.
“Shang Wu, is my young friend Zhuge about to leave? Why is he in such a hurry?” Shang Ling went into the living room and asked.
Shang Wu was delighted upon seeing Shang Ling. “Dad, finally, you finished your secluded cultivation! Hurry, please call Zhuge Liang back and don’t let him go!”
“Mind your words! My young friend Zhuge must be desperate to leave because of some urgent business. How could I call him back? Haven’t you learned a lesson recently?”
All of a sudden, Shang Wu was stunned and asked in surprise, “Dad, what do you mean by that? You knew Zhuge Liang kept bullying me recently, right?”
“Hm! Of course I know. Moreover, I asked Zhuge Liang to discipline you!” Shang Ling snorted.
Shang Wu was dumbfounded on the spot.
What the hell?
My father asked other people to beat me up?
Damn! Is he really my father?
“I’m always too soft hearted and can’t punish you strictly. However, my young friend Zhuge is different. He has abundant experience being beaten up, so he can definitely discipline you for me efficiently! You tell me, several days ago you said you would work harder on cultivating. However, you went outside to drink and disappeared the next morning! Shame on you! I’m ashamed of you!” Shang Ling became angrier as he spoke. He thought his son would be different after Xu Que’s rectification. However, it seemed Shang Wu hadn’t changed at all.
It finally dawned on Shang Wu why his father had chosen to perform secluded cultivation when he was beaten up.
No wonder Zhuge Liang dared to hit him! His father had entrusted Zhuge Liang to do so!
Damn! Zhuge Liang, you’re so cruel! How dare you trick my father?
However, today you can’t go anywhere! You aren’t the only one who can act! I’m also good at it!
Shang Wu dropped to his knees in front of Shang Ling, his eyes filled with tears.
“Dad, I’ve been unfilial! I failed to live up to your expectations!” he cried remorsefully, as if his true feelings were being revealed.
Actually, his tears were true. The memory of his humiliation by Xu Que and Buttface would always make him cry.
Shang Wu was stunned instantly. Apparently, he hadn’t expected Shang Wu could be like this.
Look at his tears and attitude! He’s totally changed now!
Could… it be that this unfilial son is really showing repentance?
Shang Ling’s heart trembled. His eyes were also slightly wet, and his hands were shivering. It seemed the arrival of his happiness was unexpected.
“Dad, I know I was wrong before! Actually, General Zhuge has taught me many major principles in recent days. However, I thought he was just bullying me. Therefore, only revenge was left on my mind. Now, I know the truth, and I’ve been awakened! It was so discerning and apprehending!” Shang Wu continued to make a pitiful plea that was reasonable and well argued.
After all, he had witnessed Xu Que’s shameless acting on the spot for several times. Therefore, he had also acquired some surface knowledge of acting.
Touched, Shang Ling thought his son must have changed this time, because what he said was true. It seemed that he really planned to change himself.
I should extend my gratitude to General Zhuge and the Exploding Heavens Faction!
“Good! Good! Very good! Just stand up, don’t kneel!” Shang Ling wept bitterly. Although he was a Sect Leader and a powerhouse at the Infant Transformation Stage, now he was just a warbling old man who was lifting up his child.
Anyone would be moved by this scene. Every parent in this world would be admirable!
However, Shang Wu turned a blind eye to the scene. He chuckled to himself that his plot had been carried out successfully.
With tears on his face, he stood up slowly and said, “Dad, I hope General Zhuge will continue to spur me on and prevent me from falling onto the wrong path! Could you ask him to stay?”
“I…” Shang Ling hesitated.
“Dad, I was informed that General Zhuge is heading for the Imperial City. Nothing urgent happened in the Imperial City, so we could ask him to stay here another day! Just one more day. I want to learn from General Zhuge for one last day!” Shang Wu said resolutely, like a diligent student.
Shang Ling nodded with exclamation, “Okay, we’ll go together to urge General Zhuge to stay!”
“Sure!” Shang Wu nodded immediately with a cold smile.
At the same time, Xu Que and Buttface had arrived at the Teleportation Device in the Snow City’s downtown area.
Before, Situ Hai Tang had said she wouldn’t come, but she came to see them off.
After all, this might have been the last time she would meet Xu Que, or she would have to wait for a very long time to see him again.
She was a little reluctant. This weird feeling made her uncomfortable.
“Xu Que, remember my words, keep a low profile overseas, and come back alive!” Situ Hai Tang exhorted Xu Que again.
“I know, and I have immortalized your words here!” Xu Que smiled by pointing at his heart.
Situ Hai Tang also smiled elegantly and nodded her head, “Take care!”
“You also take care! Remember, if I’m not back after you escape your marriage, do come overseas to find me!”
Situ Hai Tang nodded slightly again and said nothing. It seemed she didn’t want to promise anything to Xu Que. However, her body betrayed her.
Xu Que waved his hand, then turned around and stepped on the Teleportation Device.
At this moment, two beams of light flew from the sky and landed in a place not far away.
“My young friend Zhuge, please wait a moment!” Shang Ling walked over rapidly as he shouted excitedly.
Seeing Shang Ling, Xu Que widened his eyes immediately.
Holy sh*t! Is the old guy going to avenge his son now?
“My young friend Zhuge, thank you so much! Thanks to your methods, my unfilial son has been totally awakened and returned to the fold!” Shang Ling walked up directly and said gratefully. He almost burst into tears again.
Hearing that, Xu Que was confused.
What the hell?
Shang Wu has returned to the fold?
Are you kidding me?
There was no way to save that guy! If he could return to the fold, a cow could jump over the moon! Nobody would believe that!
However, Xu Que still smiled modestly and said while waving his hand, “Please, don’t mention it. I just did the best that I could.”
“You’re too modest, my young friend. This time, I owe you a lot! In the future, if there’s anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to ask! By the way, I’ve heard you’re leaving for the Imperial City. Is there anything I can do for you?” Shang Ling asked.
Xu Que shook his head calmly, “You’re welcome, Sect Leader Shang! I have nothing important in the Imperial City. I just want to go back to have a look.”
He didn’t want to reveal his plans for going overseas. After all, Shang Ling was just an acquaintance.
Hearing that, Shang Ling was very delighted, “Wonderful! Actually, I have a presumptuous request. Just now, my son told me at home that he wants to learn more from you, even just one day more! Could you stay here just a little bit longer?”
Shang Wu also walked up hurriedly, then said while clasping his hands sincerely, “Exactly! General Zhuge, I misunderstood you before! I hope you could be generous and stay here to teach me. Please keep spurring me on!”
