In a few minutes, all the subordinates of the entire Purple Mountain Villa returned to their rooms.
The meticulous Old Zhang even asked Qiu Ying Shan to order someone to temporarily stop the surveillance of the entire Zijinshan Villa, after all, it was about the reputation of his own lady, so naturally he could not leave any hidden dangers.
After everything was taken care of, Old Zhang called Lin Wan’er to report, and then Lin Wan’er said to Ye Chen, “Gongzi, Old Zhang and the others are ready, let’s go down.”
Ye Chen nodded and politely said, “Thank you, Miss Lin.”
Lin Wan’er smiled sweetly, “You don’t have to be polite to my servant.”
Ye Chen put away the painting with the words mentioned, and walked out of the top floor courtyard with Lin Wan’er.
Just as they reached the entrance of the courtyard, they saw three old men standing side by side respectfully at the end of the long stone steps below.
What Ye Chen did not expect was that among them was a big shot whom he used to see on television, that is, Sun Zhidong from the capital.
When he was young, he had often heard the elders around him talk about this big man’s legendary and inspiring life experience, and had even visited him with his father, but only today did he realise that he was one of the orphans that Lin Wan’er had adopted.
As Ye Chen and Lin Wan’er walked down the stone steps together, the three old men said to Lin Wan’er with respectful faces, “Good day, Miss.”
After saying that, they looked at Ye Chen and said with the same respect, “Hello, Mr. Ye!”
Ye Chen was a bit uncomfortable for a while, after all, these three people were almost three hundred years old combined, and it was indeed a bit incongruous to be so polite to a twenty-eight year old young man like himself.
So Ye Chen said with the same respect, “Greetings, three old gentlemen.”
When Sun Zhidong looked at Ye Chen, he could not help but sigh: “Mr Ye really looks like your father, just like the old saying, “A tiger’s father has no son!”
Ye Chen said respectfully, “Grandpa Sun, I followed my father to visit your house when I was a child, I don’t know if you still remember.”
Sun Zhidong nodded and said, “Yes, of course I remember, your parents brought you to my home for dinner, I still remember the situation back then, I didn’t expect that so many years would have passed in the blink of an eye.”
Back then, he talked to me a lot about the direction of global economic development and the changing trend of the world landscape, and his long-term vision and precision were the only things I had ever seen in my life.
Ye Chen also sighed in his heart.
He had once heard Sun Zhidong mentioned when the adults were chatting. At that time, his father had a lot of ambitions that he wanted to fulfil when he returned to China, and Sun Zhidong had always wanted to work with him on a macro level, but unfortunately, his father suddenly had irreconcilable conflicts with the Ye family and left the Ye family for Jinling.
As Ye Chen sighed, he was about to say something when he suddenly felt that although Sun Zhidong’s entire body still looked quite hard, his entire breath was actually very poor, and he seemed to be at the end of his rope, and it was estimated that in a few more months, he would die of natural old age.
He then spoke, “Grandpa Sun, your physical state, it seems, is not very good.”
Sun Zhidong looked stunned and asked in surprise, “How can Mr. Ye tell that?”
Ye Chen said humbly, “The junior has learnt a little bit of medical skills.”
As he said that, he could not help but feel in his heart that these three people were all very old and were indeed on their last legs.
Among them, Sun Zhidong only had a few months left to live, and Qiu Yingshan and Zhang Decai only had a few years of life left at most, judging from this situation.
Sun Zhidong sighed, “At my age, people are basically running out of gas, so it’s normal for them to be in poor health.”
Ye Chen nodded gently, thinking in his heart that Lin Wan’er was his life-saving benefactor, so he should repay this life-saving kindness from a spring, and these three people were orphans raised by Lin Wan’er.
What’s more, Sun Zhidong had also shown some kindness to his own father.
For reasons of reason, he could not sit idly by and do nothing about his current situation.
So, he said, “Three old gentlemen, today I still have some important matters to attend to, so I will come back to visit you after I have settled the matters at hand.
All three of them were a little dazed.
