Whether or not he was planning to accept his mother, and if their
relationship was going to be sustained, Yang Chen felt that what Lin
Ruoxi mentioned was right. If he refused to pay his mother a visit, he
might not get another chance for the rest of his life.
Yang Chen couldnâ€™t deny the struggle in his heart. Since this was the
case, he felt that he should continue with this plan, instead of acting
cool and intentionally ignore the people from the clan.
However, according to Yang Gongming, Guo Xuehua is locked up at Yang
Pojunâ€™s compound in the military district of Zhonghai.
Ignoring why Yang Pojun wanted to stop Guo Xuehua from meeting him,
strictly speaking about the location, he was not familiar with its
terrains. He also lacked permission to enter. The residence of the
commander in chief was certainly tightly secured as it was a place for
As a result, Yang Chen had the members of the Sea Eagles to provide help,
and soon found out the address of Yang Pojunâ€™s compound. He then used
the GPS system in his car to navigate.
After driving for almost an hour, Yang Chen came to the destination
according to the GPS.
It was in the foothill area located at the southwest region of Zhonghai.
When seen from afar, there were only a few tall communication towers and
endless hills which were visible.
Since it was winter, the hills were yellowish, while the trees were not
as lush, making the compound more visible.
Yang Chen slowed down his car and carefully searched the area. It
didnâ€™t take him long before he discovered a residential area guarded by
The house had a more oriental design. The combination of green and grey
made the place look simple yet stylish.
Being at the foothill, the surrounding lands were rather barren. There
parked a few rows of jeeps and delivery trucks outside the tall walls.
Yang Chen parked his car at a designated area and exited it. The building
was a lot bigger than he expected. Yang Chen presumed that it was filled
with soldiers. Including technical staff and armed soldiers, many people
should be working and on duty there, otherwise it wouldnâ€™t make sense
for so many houses to be empty.
He walked to the entrance which had two majestic stone lines which were
placed on each side of the scarlet door. Behind two pine trees, there
stood two soldiers dressed in their military uniforms.
Seeing that Yang Chen approached the door casually, the two soldiers
stood in front of Yang Chen effectively blocking him off.
â€œHalt. Who are you?â€ a square-faced soldier asked loudly.
Smiling, Yang Chen answered, â€œIâ€™m looking for your commander, and
there is somebody I would like to meet as well.â€
â€œThe chief isnâ€™t somebody that you could meet without a clearance or
without an invite. You may enter, but you have to show your pass!â€ the
soldier yelled loudly.
A pass? How do get that thing? No one told me about it! Yang Chen thought
as he frowned.
The old fellow asked me to come pay a visit, but didnâ€™t give me a pass.
How am I supposed to get in now? Do I jump over the walls?
Jumping over the walls would mean trespassing, which would force him to
fight the soldiers within. Although it wasnâ€™t anything he was afraid of
doing, it would be absurd for bullets to rain just for his arrival.
â€œNo one is allowed to enter without a permit!â€
Yang Chen pouted. After thinking for a while, he took out the remaining
packet of poor-quality cigarettes worth two yuan from his pocket. He
looked at it reluctantly, before offering the two soldiers smilingly.
â€œBrothers, letâ€™s make it easy for me, and these two cigarettes will
belong to you. Deal?â€
The two soldiers looked at each other at the same time. They could see
the same message in each otherâ€™s eyesâ€”is there something wrong with
this guyâ€™s head?
â€œDonâ€™t try to tempt us. Weâ€™re not interested in smoking these
cigarettes. Donâ€™t even think about getting in!â€ the soldier shouted
with a serious expression. He dares to take a cigarette worth only a few
cents to bribe us?
Yang Chen quickly put the cigarettes back into the pocket of his pants.
He scratched his head as he thought of what to say. However, the two
soldiers ran out of patience and reached their hands to their riflesâ€¦
â€œAre you done yet? If you continue fooling around, we have the right to
suspect that youâ€™re a spy and kill you!â€ the square-faced soldier
Yang Chen turned gloomy. Do I have to get in by force? Do I need to deal
with these people? I canâ€™t come here in vain right?
At that moment, two black Audi A6â€™s sandwiching an A8 drove to the
Yang Chen looked back, only to find seven or eight bodyguards dressed in
suits coming down from the two A6â€™s before surrounding the A8 on all
four sides. Then, a well-built young man came down from the front
passenger seat to open the rear door. A middle-aged man wearing a grey
jacket then came out of the car.
Yang Chen was shocked. He didnâ€™t expect to see the premier Ning
Guangyao here, even his son Ning Guodong was here.
Upon exiting the car, Ning Guangyao saw Yang Chen and frowned slightly.
He then remembered who Yang Chen was. Thus, he let out a friendly smile
and walked towards Yang Chen under the cover of his bodyguards. He asked,
â€œYouâ€™re from Yu Lei International right?â€
Yang Chen didnâ€™t expect Ning Guangyao to remember him. He appeared to
be extraordinarily concerned about Yu Lei. Yang Chen clearly remembered
the overly passionate gazes Ning Guangyao and his son gave to Lin Ruoxi
like it was yesterday.
â€œPremier indeed has a good memory,â€ Yang Chen simply replied.
Ning Guodong, however, had no clue who Yang Chen was. When he heard that
Yang Chen was from Yu Lei International, he instantly recalled the
beautiful figure. He asked, â€œDid you come here alone, or is Boss Lin
here as well?â€
Ning Guodong wasnâ€™t bothered about Yang Chenâ€™s arrival. The first
thing he did was ask whether or not Lin Ruoxi was there.
Yang Chen was deeply displeased, but he couldnâ€™t castrate him
on-the-spot. Thus, he said, â€œHow is her presence related to my visit?â€
â€œThen why are you here?â€ Ning Guodong finally realized he asked the
wrong question. Even Lin Ruoxi had no reason to come to such a military
Yang Chen sighed. â€œIâ€™m here in search of someone. But they refuse to
let me enter.â€
Ning Guangyao looked at his son with a complex gaze before sighing. He
then asked, â€œWho are you looking for?â€
â€œCommander Yang Pojun, or more accurately, Iâ€™m looking for his
wife,â€ Yang Chen answered.
Ning Guangyao was rather surprised. â€œYou know Commander Yang? Why do
you want to look for his wife?â€
â€œIn short, itâ€™s for personal reasons. Premier, would you be so kind
as to ask them to allow me to enter?â€ Yang Chen asked happily.
Ning Guodong felt displeased when he saw that Yang Chen wasnâ€™t acting
nervous in front of his father, and even acted in a carefree manner. He
snorted coldly before saying, â€œWhy should we bring a smooth-talking guy
like you inside? Do you deserve to enter such a place? Youâ€™re onlâ€”â€
â€œGuodong!â€ Ning Guangyao immediately stopped his son from speaking.
Strictly, he said, â€œWho taught you to speak in this manner?!â€
Yang Chenâ€™s gaze had already turned cold. If Ning Guangyao failed to
stop him on time, Yang Chen felt that he wouldâ€™ve given his son a slap,
causing him to lose at minimum seven or eight teeth.
Ning Guodong too realized that he went over the line. This was not his
usual way of speech, but Yang Chen behaved too differently from others.
Normally, even the highly-ranked ministers would talk to his father
politely as they couldnâ€™t afford to anger him.
It wasnâ€™t only because his father was the premier of the country. In
Beijing, the Ning clan was among the strongest in the country, with
unfathomable connections. Only a handful of clans could rival the Ning
As a result, Ning Guodong who had been more powerful than the others
since young was annoyed when he faced Yang Chen who completely dismissed
Having scolded his son, Ning Guangyao looked at Yang Chen with a friendly
gaze. â€œYouâ€™re an interesting young man and Iâ€™m in a good mood. Let
me help you. Iâ€™ll see what you want to do inside.â€
Ning Guodong wanted to object his fatherâ€™s decision, but was given a
terrorizing gaze by his father, which caused him to immediately shut his
mouth up. All he could do was to stare at Yang Chen fiercely.
Yang Chen ignored this pampered prick. Smilingly, he said to Ning
Guangyao, â€œThank you, Premier.â€
Walking to the entrance, one of the bodyguards took out a pass which had
the national emblem printed to show the two soldiers.
The two soldiers recognized Premier Ning Guangyao, but they still had to
follow rules which was to perform a series of checks. They then greeted
him promptly, â€œPremier!â€
Ning Guangyao greeted back with a smile and said, â€œI know this young
man. Heâ€™s with me.â€
The two soldiers looked at Yang Chen who was elated and only felt
contempt in their hearts. However, they didnâ€™t dare to go against Ning
Guangyaoâ€™s will, so they agreed to his request.
After walking into the compound, Yang Chen noticed that the place was
constructed like a huge maze. Without guidance, he would need at least
half an hour to look for the people he wanted to meet.
Being led by a soldier, Yang Chen, Ning Guangyao and the others headed to
Yang Pojunâ€™s office.
At this moment, Yang Chen seemed to have thought of something. He asked
Ning Guangyao, â€œPremier, is you visit purposed as an inspection?â€
Ning Guangyao smiled and answered, â€œThis is just a private meeting.
Iâ€™ve actually known Commander Yang and his wife for many years
â€œYou will meet the husband, but you wonâ€™t necessarily see his
wife,â€ Yang Chen murmured.
Ning Guangyao didnâ€™t manage to listen to what Yang Chen said, but
didnâ€™t ask him to repeat, since Yang Pojun emerged from a dark green
wooden door to personally welcome him. He was wearing a beige tank top,
which revealed his well-built body.
