Ye Chen was stunned by the actions of the middle-aged man in front of him.
He immediately reached out to hold him in place and subconsciously asked, “May I ask who you are?”
The middle-aged man immediately said respectfully, “Young Master Ye, my name is Chen Zhao Zhong, I should have become a lonely ghost long ago.
Hearing that Chen Zhaozhong was an old acquaintance of his father’s, Ye Chen hugged Chen Zhaozhong with great respect and bowed, “Hello, Uncle Chen, I am Ye Chen!”
Chen Zhaozhong was unusually excited and said with red eyes, “I know …… I know …… The first time I saw you back, I knew you must be Young Master Chen, at first I thought I was hallucinating, but once I thought of Miss Gu telling me about the mysterious guest, I instantly decided that you must be Young Master Chen ……”
Gu Qiuyi said with a smile on the side, “Brother Ye Chen, I didn’t tell Uncle Zhong that you were coming over, I didn’t even tell Uncle Zhong that we had found you, I wanted to surprise Uncle Zhong, but I didn’t expect Uncle Zhong to be so smart, he guessed your identity right away!”
Chen Zhao Zhong hurriedly said, “Miss Gu, it’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that Young Master Chen and Young Master Chang Ying looked too much alike when he was young ……”
Ye Chen couldn’t help but ask, “Uncle Chen, you and my father, how did you know each other?”
Chen Zhao Zhong let out a long sigh and said seriously, “Back then, because I was young and frivolous, I messed with the wrong people, and the other side put out a jianghu chase order to kill me, and the entire Hong Kong Island’s kooks were out in force, just to find me out and chop me up with a knife ……”
Speaking of this, Chen Zhao Zhong said with red eyes, “It was Young Master Chang Ying who sent someone to rescue me from Hong Kong Island overnight, and personally went to Hong Kong Island to negotiate with that big man, paying a huge price to get me back in exchange for my life ……”
Ye Chen said in surprise, “Uncle Chen, so you and my father are old friends ……”
Gu Qiuyi quickly said, “Brother Ye Chen, my father said that Uncle Zhong was a very respected scholar at home and abroad, Uncle Ye had visited Hong Kong Island many times in order to ask Uncle Zhong to come out, which was comparable to Liu Bei’s three visits to his cottage!”
Chen Zhao Zhong said humbly, “Miss Gu is too polite, I am not a famous scholar, I am just fortunate to be appreciated by Young Master Chang Ying.”
He sighed and said, “Back then, I originally wanted to retire to the countryside and set up my horse in the southern mountains, but I was fortunate enough to be appreciated by Young Master Chang Ying, so I decided to follow him and build a successful career. ……”
When Ye Chen heard this, his heart could not help but tighten, what Chen Zhao Zhong said, should be his own eight years old when the incident.
So, he hurriedly asked, “Uncle Chen, do you know the hidden story of my parents’ death?”
Chen Zhaozhong shook his head and said apologetically, “I’m sorry Young Master Ye, I only heard about Young Master Chang Ying’s murder back then, and at that time, Young Master Chang Ying had already cut off contact with me, and the last time he contacted me was before he was ready to leave the Ye family.”
Ye Chen was busy asking, “At that time, did my father say anything to you?”
Chen Zhao Zhong said, “Back to Young Master Ye, Young Master Chang Ying was talking to me on the phone at that time, he said that he was leaving the Ye family, but still hoped that I could serve the Ye family, and also asked me to contact Tang Sihai, the then Grand Steward of the Ye family, but I did not agree.”
Saying that, Chen Zhao Zhong explained with some shame, “I am not going to hide from you Young Master Ye, back then, I would not have wanted to be involved in the affairs of the jianghu again, and if it were not for Young Master Chang Ying’s charisma that convinced me, I would not have chosen to go out again ……”
“So, I felt that if I were to serve Young Master Chang Ying, I would not hesitate to die!”
“But if it wasn’t to serve him, then I didn’t want to make things difficult for myself.”
“So, I promised Young Master Chang Ying that whenever he decided to return to the Ye family, or to set up his own business, just one phone call, no matter where I was or what I was doing, as long as he still needed me and as long as I still had a breath left, I would crawl and go to him to return to his orders ……”
“At that time, Young Master Chang Ying also respected my choice, only I did not expect to hear the news of his murder soon afterwards ……”
At this point, Chen Zhao Zhong’s eyes were already filled with tears, he couldn’t help but choke on his wrist and said, “I really didn’t expect that Young Master Chang Ying would die young, it’s really …… It’s such a pity ……”
Ye Chen also could not help but sigh lightly, when his father died, he was only in his thirties, in his prime, it was indeed a great pity.
