Chapter 107: I’ve Made a Name for Myself!
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Fang Huilan’s voice started to crack as she hugged her son, tears streaming down her face.
His younger sister, Wu Yan, held onto his arm and with joy too.
Father Wu, who was at the side, raised his arm and patted his wife on the back. “That’s enough. Our child’s return is such a happy occasion. Why are you still crying?”
He comforted her, but the people beside him clearly saw tears in his eyes as well.
After a moment, they slowly separated.
“Wow… Old Wu’s son has become more handsome after a year.”
“Yeah, he looks much more energetic. I wonder if he’s found a job yet.”
“This is great. Changkang Village is going to produce a talented blacksmith.”
Everyone was talking at the same time.
After Fang Huilan heard them, she suddenly remembered something. She grabbed her son’s hand with a concerned expression and asked, “Little Mo, I heard that the employment environment for students this year isn’t too good. If you don’t find a good job, you can stay at home for two years. There’s no rush.”
As she spoke, she tidied up Wu Mo’s collar. The concern on her face was obvious.
“Yes, your mother is right. A good man is ambitious. If there’s nothing good now, we’ll wait a little longer. I know that you’ve dreamed of becoming a blacksmith since you were young. You don’t have to worry about your family. We’ll definitely have the money for your further education!”
Father Wu walked up to his son and patted his shoulder. His tone was firm as he spoke.
“Brother, do your best. I’ll study hard too. Let’s live a good life together,” Wu Yan said in a soft voice.
Wu Mo wiped the tears from the corner of his eyes and looked at his parents, who were comforting him, with a shocked expression.
Moments ago, the atmosphere was touching when the family reunited.
Why did his parents suddenly say those two sentences?
They made it seem like he had not graduated. What the hell was this?
Seeing both of their comforting expressions, Wu Mo immediately explained, “Father, Mother… what are you talking about? I’ve already found a job. In half a day at most, your son is going to the National Artifact Research Department in Beijing. I came back just to see you. Did the two of you misunderstand something?”
As soon as Wu Mo said that, his parents appeared a little dumbfounded before him.
Their surrounding relatives were also surprised. Had old Wu’s son found a good job?
They had heard from the village chief that a blacksmith’s monthly salary was over ¥10,000.
“I also came back this time to bring you both to Shanglin City.”
As he spoke, he lowered his head and stroked his sister’s soft hair. He smiled and added, “Isn’t Little Sis going to junior high soon? Where else can we get a better education for her? When the time comes, our family will be reunited. How great would that be?”
“Right, Yan Yan?”
Wu Mo blinked, and Yan Yan immediately nodded with an expectant look on her face. At the same time, she naively said, “That would definitely be good. When that happens, our parents won’t have to work so hard.”
When she heard that her son was going to take them to Shanglin City to live and that he had even found a job in the capital, Fang Huilan felt as if she was in a dream.
Everything seemed extremely surreal.
“Uuu, it looks like Old Wu’s son is doing well. The capital is a large-scale base city. It’s many times better than our Lin Chang.”
“I have a distant relative, whose son works in the capital. He earns ¥6,000 to ¥7,000 a month just repairing appliances. That place is as good as heaven. Ordinary people like us will never be able to go there in our lifetime.”
“That’s right. Besides, Old Wu’s son is a blacksmith. If he goes to the capital, won’t he be able to earn ¥20,000 a month? He’s going to be rich.”
Everyone was shocked by Wu Mo’s words, and they started to talk among themselves.
However, the village chief who was standing at the side shook his head, as though he was a little disappointed.
“Child, this isn’t funny. The Research Department in the capital is equivalent to a place like the General Assembly Hall. It’s full of the country’s senior leaders. How can people with ordinary backgrounds like us go there?” the old village chief tapped his cane and said in disbelief.
Old Wu had been standing at the side in silence, but he instantly widened his eyes when he saw what happened.
He stared at Wu Mo and said with a flushed face, “Stinky brat, did you get expelled from the academy in Shanglin City? Now, you’re making stories up to deceive me. I’ll…”
Old Wu could not hold it in anymore. He was ready to rush up to his son, whom he had not seen for a long time, and teach him a lesson.
The surrounding villagers were also skeptical. They had been watching TV lately. The daily news clearly said that the employment situation was grim this year, but the Wu family’s son just said that he was going to work in Beijing. It was indeed hard to believe.
Seeing that the number of people surrounding them was growing and that his father was showing signs of laying hands on him, Wu Mo could not straighten things out.
His old man was rambling on and on, turning the show of his return to their village into a large-scale social death. Wu Mo was having a really hard time!
Just as the crowd became boisterous, the sound of a horn suddenly rang out from afar.
Old Wu’s raised hand paused for a moment. He noticed that on the dirt road not far away, a black car was driving in their direction!
The villagers had never seen a car in such a godforsaken place before. They were instantly drawn to it.
At that moment, even the village chief, who was holding a walking stick, could not help but take a few more glances.
The black SUV stopped at the open space in front of the village entrance. The car door was opened, and a middle-aged man wearing an official uniform walked out.
Right then, the village chief’s sharp eyes noticed that a badge the color of a pine branch hung on the shoulder of the middle-aged man’s military green uniform. There were two golden wheat ears and two golden stars on it.
After he spotted those details, the old village chief’s hair stood on end, and his face turned pale with horror.
Oh, my God… Yes, a high-ranking official from Lin Chang satellite city had arrived!
The village chief’s hands were trembling in fear, and he hurriedly went up to the middle-aged man with his cane to welcome him. He was supposed to have some problems with his legs, but at that moment, he was pretty much flying!
The village chief’s soul almost flew out of his body, especially when he saw the middle-aged man’s face clearly.
As the village chief, he naturally paid attention to national affairs. Moreover, because his family was relatively wealthy, he often watched the news on his television.
At that moment, the village chief realized that the person in front of him was General Shao Yuan. The village chief had been invited to participate in a strategy meeting in Lin Chang satellite city last year, and the general had spoken on stage!
Back then, General Shao Yuan had told everyone that he was fortunate enough to participate in efforts to alleviate national poverty. That one time was enough for the village chief to imprint the general’s face into his mind because General Shao Yuan was the biggest official in the meeting!
Witnessing General Shao Yuan drive over to the village, the chief could not help but wonder just how big of an event had happened to alarm such a big shot!
At that moment, the big shot from Lin Chang satellite city got out of the car and immediately walked in his direction. So, the village chief hurried over to welcome him.
“General Shao, the wind actually blew you here. As the village chief of Changkang Village, I didn’t know that you would be visiting us. It’s a real pity that I didn’t welcome you earlier on.”
