Yan Jun understood this as well. With the purpose of Elder Yi, how could he talk about this casually? Since he had said something like this, he must have placed a certain amount of hope on Samuel. This hope also revealed some information. The existence of the Tianqi realm was not simply imprisoned the masters in the Tianqi realm.
“There’s always a solution to any problem. I believe that you have a solution to anything.” After speaking, Yan Jun poured another glass of wine for Samuel.
After the two finished drinking, Samuel said, “Grandpa Yan, I’m almost omnipotent in your heart.”
After saying that, Samuel himself laughed. He could do anything. The weight of these four words was so heavy. Who dared to use these four words to describe his ability?
However, Yan Jun had a stiff expression on his face. He did not seem to think that this was a joke. He said, “Perhaps you are still quite some distance away from these four words. However, I believe that there will be a day when you will be able to do it. Only by doing so would you be able to truly protect the people around you.”
Protect the people around him.
These five words stimulated Samuel’s heart. If he needed to protect his people, even if he knew he would be bathed in blood, he was willing to break through the thorns. As long as he could achieve this goal, he could go forward.
“Grandpa Yan, these five words will be the belief of my life. No matter what danger I encounter, I must survive,” Samuel said, gnashing his teeth.
Yan Jun stood up, patted Samuel’s shoulder, and said, “Let’s go home. Yvonne is still waiting for you. When I left, the lights in her room were still on.”
Samuel looked at the time. It was almost four o’clock in the morning, and he couldn’t let Yvonne wait all the time.
As for Manfred and the other two, Samuel unconditionally displayed that he valued his lover over his friends. Initially, he wanted to send them back to Hex Capital Nightclub, but now, he had no such thoughts at all.
He walked to the door of the hot pot restaurant and said to the boss, “I’ll have to trouble you to send the three back to Hex Capital Nightclub.”
“All right, all right, no problem, Mr. Hannigan, take care.” The boss was almost asleep on the street side. As soon as he heard Samuel’s words, he woke up instantly.
“Keep the money for this meal in mind. I owe you a favor,” Samuel said.
The boss was so surprised that he froze on the spot. He didn’t jump for joy until Samuel was far away.
What was the money for a meal? A favor of Samuel could not even be exchanged with a thousand pieces of gold.
“I’m rich, I’m rich,” the boss said excitedly.
The manager also understood this and hurriedly said, “Boss, I can be your slave for the rest of my life. Don’t forget me.”
The boss patted the manager on the shoulder and said, “Little Li, don’t worry. You have made a contribution to this matter. How can I forget you?”
Samuel returned to the Hillside. Just as Yan Jun had said, the lights in the room were still on. After opening the door, the gaunt-looking Yvonne immediately became energetic.
Even though Samuel reeked of alcohol, Yvonne didn’t show the slightest bit of dislike.
“Hurry up. It’s cold outside,” Yvonne said.
The bed was warm. The temperature was just right. At night, when they were drinking at home, there was such a good wife. This was the greatest happiness for a man.
“Are you cold?” Yvonne asked.
“Thankfully, my defense body can withstand it,” Samuel said with a smile.
Yvonne glared at him, grabbed Samuel’s feet, and put them on her lower abdomen.
It was as cold as ice, but Yvonne’s expression didn’t change, using her own body temperature to warm Samuel.
Samuel could not help but be moved. What was the point of other things since he was having a wife like this?
“Did you drink them to the ground?” Yvonne asked with a smile.
Samuel looked very proud and said, “Who can sit at the table when your husband is here? They have been at the bottom of the table for a long time.”
Yvonne said happily, “Although you are powerful, you still have to drink less in the future. Drinking wine will hurt your health.”
“Quit it. From now on.” Samuel said seriously.
“Really?” Yvonne said with a look of disbelief. She just made a joke casually. She had never thought of making Samuel quit drinking. After all, he was not a person who was addicted to alcohol.
“Really.” Samuel was not joking. He was willing to fulfill every promise he made to Yvonne.
If a man couldn’t even fulfill his own promise, wouldn’t that be equivalent to farting?
“I’m just saying. I just hope you don’t drink too much, or you’ll hurt yourself.” Seeing Samuel was so serious, Yvonne quickly explained.
“I need to protect you and Nian’er. I can’t hurt myself. From now on, I’ll quit smoking,” Samuel said with a smile.
Yvonne suddenly lowered her head and sobbed in a low voice after a while.
Samuel immediately panicked. For someone like him who didn’t fear the heavens or the earth, Yvonne’s tears were like bombs that could destroy the world.
“What’s wrong? Why are you crying?” Samuel said.
Yvonne raised her head with a bright smile on her face and said, “I’m happy. Can’t I cry if I’m happy?”
Samuel reached out his hand and wiped away the tears on Yvonne’s cheeks. He said, “Don’t cry in the future. Don’t cry for anything. Otherwise, I’ll feel sorry for you.”
“Just cry. I just want you to feel sorry for me. Only if you feel sorry for me, will you care more about me,” Yvonne said with a stubborn expression.
Samuel held Yvonne in his arms and said softly, “Silly girl, I’ll always care about you even if you don’t cry.”
Yvonne leaned on Samuel’s chest quietly. Only at this time could she feel secure. However, she knew that it was only a matter of time before Samuel left. No one could change it.
“When are you leaving?” This was a question Yvonne didn’t want to face, but she had no choice but to ask. She was worried Samuel suddenly disappears, so she didn’t have any mental preparation.
“After the end of the year, perhaps I won’t be able to drag on any longer.” Samuel said.
Yvonne took a deep breath. It was almost the same as what she had imagined. Although she still rejected it in her heart, she was still unwilling to accept reality. However, she could only tell herself in her heart that she could not be the stumbling block in Samuel’s life path. What she needed to do was to support everything Samuel had done.
“Protect yourself. Nian’er and I will wait for you at home,” Yvonne said.
“I would rather betrayyou and Nian’er because of others,” Samuel said solemnly.
The two of them fell asleep in each other’s arms. In this atmosphere, nothing shocking happened.
It was not until noon the next day that the two of them woke up. At this time, the others had already had lunch on the dining table.
Everyone knew that Samuel had returned very late, so they did not disturb their rest.
However, Samuel, who had been in a good mood, suddenly felt inexplicably irritated when he saw Elder Yi at the dinner table.
“Old man, why are you here for a free meal again? If you don’t have money, I’ll give you some charity,” Samuel said.
Elder Yi looked like he was sitting steadily on the fishing platform. He was not angry about Samuel’s words at all. He did not even intend to talk to Samuel at all. He said to He Ting, “Your cooking skill is really excellent. It tastes much better than those big hotels.”
He Ting looked embarrassed. She knew that Elder Yi was using her to change the topic, so she had to pretend that she didn’t hear what Elder Yi said.
“You are so old, but you are still so shameless. Don’t you feel ashamed?” Samuel did not let Elder Yi go easily. Even if he knew his identity, he still wanted to vent his anger.
“The new year is almost here. Can’t you let this old man experience the atmosphere of the new year as well? I already don’t know how the new year feels for many years,” Elder Yi said.
“You don’t know how it feels to celebrate the Spring Festival, but it has nothing to do with me. After this meal, you’d better disappear from my house,” Samuel said.
In the face of Samuel’s order to drive him away, Elder Yi could only use his thick skin, which was as thick as the city wall, to deal with him. He pretended that he had heard nothing and vowed to play the trick of shamelessness to the extreme.
On the other hand, Fang Zhan was frightened when he heard these words. In the entire Tianqi era, there was no one who dared to talk to Elder Yi like this. Moreover, Elder Yi would be Samuel’s master in the future. How could he not take his master seriously?
“Grandfather, the Hannigan family will worship the ancestors earlier this year. Arrange it properly so that we can return to Cloud City to spend the new year,” Samuel said to Samuel.
Han Tianyang also planned to do so, because he knew that Swallow City had no pleasant memories for Samuel. It was a little difficult for him to go back to Swallow City to celebrate the Spring Festival.
