Awakening - Chapter 145
Chapter 207 Restaurant
“Ding!” A door bell rang, a blonde girl from a few shelves filled with auto parts came over.
She said to the young man who had just entered the door: “Welcome, what can I do for you?”
“I want to speak with your boss, Robin. Is he here?”
“He is repairing a car inside the garage. Wait here for a moment, I will inform him.” With that, she poured him a glass of water.
“Thank you.” The young man sat on the sofa inside the reception room.
Not long after that, a young American man whose hands stained with oil came from the inside along with that blonde girl.
Seeing the smiling young Asian man sitting on the sofa, Robin was stunned for a moment, and then rushed over to him in a pleasant-surprise-look.
Seeing the boss was about to hug the man, the blonde girl could not help but kindly remind him: “Robin, you still have oil in your hands.”
Hearing this, Robin immediately took back his hands so as not to touch his friend’s clothes.
“When did you come?” Robin excitedly said.
The Asian man smiled and said: “I came to the US to handle something. Along the way, I decided to visit you.”
“Wait a minute, I will take a quick shower and then I will take you to eat.”
“Will it affect your work?”
“No, it won’t. You sit here first. Mary, you help me greet my good friend.” With that, Robin rushed out the room, wanting to take a quick shower and change clothes.
Seeing him happy like a child, the blonde girl cannot help but smile.
Soon, after he took a quick shower and changed into casual clothes, Robin walked out, “Mary, please handle the store for me. Lei Yin, let’s go.”
“Okay.” The blond girl called Mary replied.
The Asian youth quietly smiled from the side, haven’t seen him in a long time, he’s more mature now. He didn’t dye his hair with strange colors anymore and like fancy dress. He also a lot calmer now. It seems like time really can change a lot of things.
Knowing his friend’s dislike for ostentatiousness, Robin did not take him to a fancy restaurant, but to a place he previously took him, a middle-sized Italian restaurant that has a distinct flavor.
Listening to a full of rich Italian music and each tasting a plate of spaghetti with tomato sauce, plus a bottle of wine, the two young man with different nationalities and colors felt very carefree and comfortable.
“How is your store business recently?” After taking a sip of the red wine, Lei Yin asked.
“Not bad. I have some friends who helped me pull a lot of guests to come over.” Robin said while eating.
“You still visit the church?”
“Once a week or so at a time, sometimes when I am helping Father shopping, I’ll go there two or three times.”
“What about Father, sister Jill, and the others?”
“Father’s waist is a little under the weather recently, after all, he is old. I’ve tried to talk to him to reduce the number of times he went out to preach, but you also know that he is a very stubborn man and won’t listen to my advice. As for sister Jill and the other nurses, they are good. What about you, how are you recently?”
Lei Yin smiled, “At least, I am still alive, right? That’s enough for me. Let us toast for being alive.” With that, he lifted his glass filled with red wine.
Robin was teased to smile by him. He also picked up his glass, made a toast, and drank it in one gulp.
“That girl you called Mary, does she have a boyfriend?” Lei Yin suddenly asked.
“Not yet, why, do you like her?” Robin unexpectedly smiled.
“Not me, it’s you. I think she is a good girl, don’t you ever think about it?”
“To be honest, I am not in the mood.”
“Because of sister Jill?”
Robin did not deny. He smiled a bit, “Liking a person is a very easy thing to do, but to forget the people that you like is very difficult. Sometimes, I also think that I am a fool. I know that it is impossible for me and sister Jill to be together, but every time I see her, I cannot help but start to indulge myself in flights of fancy.”
“Time, time will dilute everything. Take your time, you have much of it anyway.”
“You still like to preach.”
“Strange. Why have so many people told me that same thing?”
Robin laughed, “It seems like if you don’t become a priest, it would be a waste.”
“No, I am not suitable for such a serious work.”
“When will you leave?”
“So soon?” Robin was surprised.
“There’s something I need to do. I am just stopping by to see you.”
Robin showed a disappointed expression, “We rarely meet each other, I never thought it would be so soon to say goodbye. Tomorrow, I am going to send you out.”
Chapter 207 Restaurant Part 2
“We are two big guys, no need to be sentimental like that. Don’t worry, when this thing is over, I will find a time to visit you again. Tonight, don’t think too much, we’ll drink until we’re drunk.” With that, Lei Yin raised his glass once again.
Knowing that he is a man of his word, Robin had to give up and raised his glass.
The two men talked until late at night, drinking bottle after bottle of wine. Finally, the two of them left when the restaurant was about to close, Robin has been severely intoxicated.
Fortunately, he lived in his previous place so Lei Yin can bring him back using his memory.
After putting him in bed, he watched the already unconscious blonde man.
“I hope we can still meet in this life.” Patting him on the shoulder, Lei Yin pulled the sheet to cover him. After casting him a glance, Lei Yin closed the door and left.
“Master, did you find the ship?” After Lei Yin took a bath, Rei Li asked.
“Yes, it’s a boat that was used to smuggle people to the United States. But the boat cannot sail immediately because the smugglers want to avoid the downward wind. Moreover, they need to do a hull maintenance and buy some supplies. Therefore, we need to wait until next week before we can set sail.”
“So, we have to stay here for a week?”
“If nothing changes, then yes. How about your legs?”
“It’s fine now.” After days of fleeing from Atlanta to Boston, his wounds finally healed.
“That’s good. Where is Chang’an?”
“He went outside to buy food.”
Knowing Chang’an’ cautiousness, he felt at ease, not worried that Chang’an would be recognized.
The overall situation seemed certain now.
But losing the headquarters and many years of effort just like that made Rei Li grew more and more unhappy. In the end, he could not help slam his fist on the table, “Master, I am really unwilling to accept this. Are we just going to let those gangs of turtles cheat on us like that?”
Lei Yin squinted his eyes at him, “Then what do you want?”
“I….” For a moment, Rei Li was at a loss for words. He also knew who the opposite party is. Moreover, they have finally managed to escape all the way here with great difficulties. It’s just that, there was a strong sense of resentment in his heart that has always been hard to dispel.
Seeing Rei Li’s gloomy face, Lei Yin suddenly showed a pondering look.
“Are you really upset?” He gently asked this sentence.
Rei Li looked up at him and then fiercely nodded.
“Are you afraid to die?” Lei Yin strangely smiled.
“I am the leader of the number one underworld gang, if I am afraid to die, I won’t enter this world in the first place.” Rei Li loudly said.
“Perhaps we will really die.”
“Master, what are you going to do?” Rei Li finally noticed the oddness in his master’s face.
“The so-called to train the troops for a thousand days only to use them for a day. The Black Dragon have also raised this kind of people for years, it’s time for them to do something. Honestly, after being chased like a rat for so long, I am very unhappy too. When did I, this father, become a faint-hearted turtle? Since this time it was someone else who messed with us first, if we want to play, we need to go big. However, you have to think it very clearly, if we do play, it is highly likely that we will end up losing everything, even so much so that we will be hunted down every day. Right now, you are in charge of the Black Dragon, so you decide if we play this or not.”
Blankly staring at his master’s bottomless eyes, Rei Li seemed able to see two indistinct flames slowly rose from the abyss. Fifteen years ago, he had seen this kind of look once. The thing that happened at the time can still be clearly remembered by him.
To outsiders, he is a strange man. Because he liked to handle matters not according to common sense, many underworld people thought that he is a weirdo. But only he, himself knew best that this was just a subtle influence from his master to him. Moreover, only he knew best that his master is the true freak. His master seemed to be a mix of contradictions. No matter what position his master found himself in, his master will try to keep a low profile and in an unobtrusive position. But sometimes, or in some special time, his master will do some unbelievable things.
Tightly clenching his fist, Rei Li suddenly pounded the table, abruptly smashing down a corner of the table.
“His grandma! If I, this father, must die, I want a spectacular funeral, and I want those sons of turtles to be buried along with me. We play!” Rei Li stood up and roared.
The sound in the room alerted the three dark group members and, holding their guns, they immediately rushed to the room to see what happened.
But soon they were shocked because they saw the two men, one old, one young, loudly guffawed like two maniacs.
Seeing this strange scene, these three dark team members looked at each other, completely unaware of what was going on between these two, master and disciple.
