Chapter 143: This Kid is Still Too Young (Part one)
Hearing Wen Zhao's angry words, everyone was speechless. Shen Wansan coughed, "It's getting late. Since you both have to go to work tomorrow, it's time to get some rest."
In fact, he just didn't want to embara.s.s himself further in front of the younger generation. So, as someone that really cared about their face, Shen Wansan had to bounce right away.
After her father left, Shen Yao looked at Xu Cheng, and then she looked at Ran Jing. The two girls smiled.
She then said to Xu Cheng, "You should've left some face for Big Brother Wen Zhao. After all he was just following my dad's orders."
Xu Cheng bitterly smiled. "You've known me for quite a long time now, am I someone that would let people bully me? Your dad is hostile towards me, and if I admit defeat, then I probably wouldn't have an easy time living here for the next few days."
Ran Jing looked at him oddly and said, "But the more you resist, the more Uncle Shen will feel that you are into Shen Yao. Have you thought that you resisting would be interpreted as an act of trying to prove yourself to your future father-in-law?"
Xu Cheng: "What?"
He was dumbfounded for a second. It was true that he didn't consider this possibility.
Shen Yao blushed as she gave Ran Jing a look. "What are you talking about? Go to sleep!"
Then, she dragged Ran Jing upstairs, leaving only Xu Cheng behind, awkwardly sitting there.
After walking out of the villa, Shen Wansan saw his bodyguard in the backyard looking up at the moon and stars. He snorted and walked over. "You aren't really thinking about going to F Huhu, right?"
Wen Zhao sighed. "My mood right now feels like I got F-ed by a dog instead."
Immediately, he turned around to look at Shen Wansan and said, "Boss, you think what just happened could represent strength? It only means the guy was scared of competing with me, and that was why he wanted to use a little game to show how good he is. Just wait until tomorrow. Tomorrow I will show you how useless everything is in front of true power."
Shen Wansan walked over and patted him on the shoulder. The two looked like a pair of good bros looking at the night sky together. Until… "Wen Zhao… I think we should cut your salary a bit."
Wen Zhao immediately replied anxiously, "Boss, I really am very strong!"
"I know, then tomorrow just take actual actions and prove it. Since you know that guy's just bluffing, then be more direct." After Shen Wansan said that, he shoved his hands into his trouser pockets and went back inside.
Early the next morning, as the host, Shen Yao certainly couldn't sleep in. She got up early in the morning and got the maids to prepare a hearty breakfast. But, to her surprise, her dad also got up pretty early.
Then, after breakfast was ready, he also brought Wen Zhao in and the two sat their b.u.t.ts down.
Ran Jing and Xu Cheng originally didn't want to be an inconvenience and planned to grab something to eat on their way to work, but who knew Shen Wansan would open his mouth, "Little Jing, breakfast is ready. You guys should eat with us and then go to work. You two are guests, and it's rare for Yaoyao to bring friends home. Normally, I don't even have a chance to enjoy a breakfast prepared by my daughter, so it's actually all thanks to you guys too."
Those words were indeed true, and after he said it, he also glared at Xu Cheng, because he knew his daughter prepared this whole table to show Xu Cheng. And, as the father, he was very jealous!
Since the host said it, it would be impolite for Ran Jing and Xu Cheng to reject. So, they both sat down by the table under Shen Yao's warming hospitality. She filled Xu Cheng's bowl with some corn soup. Xu Cheng said thanks and took a sip, his expression saying it tasted quite good.
"Make yourselves at home," Shen Wansan said.
Xu Cheng nodded, and then he picked up his chopsticks to try and get a piece of b.u.t.tered bread. But who knew that the moment his chopsticks grabbed the bread, another pair of chopsticks would clip onto the same piece.

Xu Cheng paused for a moment upon seeing it was Wen Zhao.
Seeing this, Ran Jing looked towards Shen Yao with an odd expression, and Shen Yao also seemed to be on the verge of going berserk. But, she contained herself and looked at her father, coughing and asking, "Dad, what's the meaning of this? We can't enjoy a peaceful breakfast together?"
Shen Wansan lifted up his bowl and pretended to be enjoying the corn soup so that he couldn't see the resentment in his daughter's eyes.
Xu Cheng smiled. "Senior Brother, enjoy the b.u.t.tered bread."
Then, he moved his chopsticks, and that piece of bread was taken away by Wen Zhao. But, that guy didn't seem like he had the intention to eat it. Just when Xu Cheng prepared to go get himself a good old piece of delicious ham, Wen Zhao's chopsticks were there again, also grabbing onto the ham.
Xu Cheng looked at the host, Shen Wansan, but the latter just pretended to be drowning in food and didn't meet Xu Cheng's eyes. Xu Cheng bitterly smiled as he shook his head. He let Wen Zhao get that piece of ham as well, and the latter placed it into his bowl.
Then, Xu Cheng went for another piece of bread and the same thing happened.
Now, it really wouldn't be Xu Cheng if he continued letting someone push him around. He smiled and reminded Wen Zhao, "Senior Brother, you haven't finished the pieces in your bowl yet."
"I just like having my eyes on the pot when I'm eating from my bowl, sorry," Wen Zhao deliberately retorted back.
Xu Cheng faintly smiled. This time, he didn't let go of the bread, instead forcefully pulling it towards him. Noticing the surprising amount of strength, Wen Zhao was a bit shocked as he also used more force to get the bread back.
Xu Cheng blinked a few times, adding more strength and pulling the bread over to his side again.
Wen Zhao was quite shocked, not expecting Xu Cheng to have reserved more power. He also used more force, but this time, he noticed that he just couldn't move the bread an inch closer to his side no matter how hard he pulled.
Looking at the scene of the two people fighting over the piece of bread, although the two looked like they were in a tight lockdown situation, people could clearly see how relaxed Xu Cheng was, whereas Wen Zhao was trying so hard that his neck and face had turned red and his veins were popping out.
Just then, Xu Cheng suddenly summoned even more strength. The explosive power were more than 10 times of what he was originally using, and this time, Wen Zhao's entire body was pulled onto the table.
With a "crackling" sound, Wen Zhao shockingly found himself being easily pulled onto the table, knocking down a lot of the tableware.
Finally, Xu Cheng casually moved the piece of bread to his mouth as he took a bite, displaying the expression of him savoring the taste. Then, he looked at Wen Zhao on the table, who was currently shocked beyond belief and slowly said, "Would you also like the food from my mouth? I can give it to you too."
Wen Zhao was furious. He directly climbed up on the table, smashed his chopsticks onto the table, and shouted, "Are you humiliating me? Come on, let's fight! We are both from the army, why not just be more direct? Come on, let's go outside and spar! Let's not just fight verbal wars."
Shen Yao's face darkened. "Brother Wen Zhao, they are guests. My guests."
Wen Zhao replied, "Young Madam, I am just treating him like a junior brother from the military. Back in the military, we would just spar if there was an issue, and it also helps us deepen our bond. Sorry, I still have this habit even though I already retired."
Xu Cheng smiled. "That's right, that was the tradition back in the military."
As he said, he put the bread in his mouth as he took off his jacket, revealing the vest inside. He walked to the lawn outside of the villa and said, "Let's go, I also don't want us to be all talk and no action."
The corner of Wen Zhao's mouth slightly raised as he immediately followed Xu Cheng out.
Shen Wansan couldn't help but smile as he mumbled in his heart, "This kid is still too naive."
