Ye Yuwei rolled her eyes irritably and refused to talk to him. Gu Juexi chuckled.
After they had their breakfast, Gu Juexi hung the cleaning service sign on the doorknob and departed to meet Master Yao Lao with Ye Yuwei.
Master Yao Lao’s house had been destroyed after the incident. She now operated a small clinic at the villagers’ temporary residence. The clinic was crowded with people when Ye Yuwei and Gu Juexi arrived.
Their first stop was not to disturb Master Yao Lao’s treatment time, so they made a detour to visit the old Red Soldier.
The place where he lived now was also a temporary residence, and the place was quite decent.
The old soldier was playing chess with his friend. He looked quite excited.
When he saw them, he only lifted his hand to wave, then resumed playing until the game ended. He stood up using his cane and Ye Yuwei rushed to his side to help him.
“I figured it was about time for you guys to come,” the old man said with a chuckle. He led them back to the room he was currently living at.
Gu Juexi followed them into the room. The old man sat by the bed with the help of Ye Yuwei and looked at Gu Juexi. “Your wife is not mad at you, huh?”
Gu Juexi raised his eyebrows and remained silent. Ye Yuwei turned around to look at him, wondering wondered what that was about.
After the old man sat comfortably by the bed, he took his glass from the bedside table and drank water from it.
Ye Yuwei glanced at Gu Juexi again. He still remained silent and waited for the old man to finish drinking.
“What is your business this time? Speak.” The old man put down his glass and gestured for them to sit.
Ye Yuwei behaved like Gu Juexi’s shadow, sitting only after Gu Juexi sat. She extended her greetings and asked about his health and the topic ended abruptly as she could think of nothing else to say.
“Realistically speaking, I am alive thanks to you. You, young man, are a genius,” the old man said as he looked at Gu Juexi.
“Sir, I’ll get straight to the point regarding the reason I’m here today. You know what I’m going to ask,” Gu Juexi said. He rested his hand on the table, gentle drumming his fingers against the wood.
Ye Yuwei thought again that she might be on a different channel as she was clueless.
Maybe it was just like he had said, she’d just have to wait for his win.
The old man laughed again and scanned the couple sitting across him.
“It was such a long time ago, and it’s just some stale gossip. If you ask me, I’d say there’s nothing to talk about,” the old man said. He lifted his glass again but didn’t drink from it.
“Sir, do you know my father?” Ye Yuwei asked cautiously.
The old man lifted his head to look at Ye Yuwei. He didn’t take a good look at her last time due to the heavy rain, but now he could see her as clearly.
“Not really,” the old man said while shaking his glass, “Girl, get me some water from the room next door, please.”
Ye Yuwei paused for a second. She collected the glass from the old man after Gu Jue nodded and walked out of the room.
The old man looked at Gu Juexi after Ye Yuwei had disappeared from the room. “See, isn’t this nice?”
“Sir, was the person who came to see you Ye Shu?” Gu Juexi cut to the chase and asked.
“No.” The old man fixed his gaze on Gu Juexi, his hand still on the table. “It’s been a few decades since I last saw Ye Shu. That time, their whole family was making a living here. There’s nothing much to say, honestly.”
