“What subordinates?” Ren Sheng looked at the butler curiously.
These were the people who had been hanging around outside the Zhao family house these days! However, the young master basically did not go out and spent most of his time with the Marshal, so it was normal for him to not know. “They were all the subordinates of the young master before. After the young master’s accident, they stayed on Capital Star. Originally, madam didn’t allow them to come to the island, but recently the young master’s condition got better, so they all came back.”
Ren Sheng’s recent injury had almost recovered, so with a quick sweep of his mind, he immediately noticed that there were many more people outside the Zhao’s house. These people had built many houses on the island and seemed to intend to live here permanently. “They are Zhao Lingyu’s subordinates, shouldn’t they go see Zhao Lingyu?”
“Previously, the young master never allowed them to stay on Capital Star, so…” In fact, some of those people did not dare face Zhao Lingyu even when he was fine, but when Zhao Lingyu met with such an accident…
“Then let them leave Capital Star! Subordinates should be obedient!” Ren Sheng said without hesitation. Zhao Lingyu was so powerful, didn’t they just need to listen to him?
This young master Ren Sheng was really something else! It’s simply a sign of complete trust in our young master, isn’t it? The old housekeeper nodded and immediately answered, “Okay, Young Master Ren Sheng. I’ll tell them to go.” Those people were hiding outside and didn’t dare to go see their own young master. They were not as brave as Ren Sheng.
At the entrance of the Zhao family house, three men and two women, a total of five people, were standing at the door, looking at the Zhao family house expectantly.
They were either Zhao Lingyu’s subordinates, Zhao Lingyu’s former classmates, or talents that Zhao Lingyu had taken in after entering the army, and there was even one that Zhao Lingyu had rescued from the Star Pirates.
“Will that Ren Sheng come to see us?” A dark, and strong man with bulky muscles asked. He deliberately lowered his voice, but it was still very loud.
His name was Hong Zhong.
“Certainly.” Ivor, the thinnest of the five, spoke up. “After all, we have been with the Marshal for so many years, he has to meet us.” He was a military advisor under the Marshal and had already read all the available information about Ren Sheng before he came here. He even deduced a lot of possible outcomes according to Ren Sheng’s personality. The final result was that this person was 98% likely to come to see them.
Whether it was curiosity or something else, that person had already been accepted by the Zhao family, so it was only a matter of time before they met him.
“When he comes out, behave yourself and don’t say a word you shouldn’t say.” The prettier women of the two said while glancing around. “He’s still young. Don’t scare him.”
“Ellie, don’t underestimate him too much. He got the approval of the Zhao family so quickly. He may not be as simple as he appears.” A man wearing a pink suit and yellow pants said. His hair was dyed in red, yellow, and blue. His attire was a bit overly flamboyant for a man, but with his handsome face, there was no sense of discord.
“Wu Shuai, are you still dressed like this? Aren’t you afraid that the Marshal will beat you up?” Ellie glared at him and became silent again as soon as she spoke.
“It would be great if the Marshal beats me up. As for that Kay, let Zhao Na take a look at him.” Wu Shuai’s beaming expression dissipated as he looked at the woman who had been standing next to him without speaking.
Zhao Na was rescued by the Marshal from the Star Pirates and her ability was intuition. It allowed her to sense whether the next task to be faced was dangerous or not, or whether someone had malicious intent.
The others fell silent when they heard this. At this moment, the old butler slowly walked out, but he wasn’t followed by anyone at all.
“Mr. Butler?” Ivor looked curiously at the old butler.
“Young Master Ren Sheng told you to behave yourselves.” The old butler said smilingly.
All five of them were stunned, what kind of answer was that?
In the end, it was Ivor who responded first, “Mr. Butler, we want to see the Marshal.” Previously, the Marshal asked them to leave and distanced himself from them for their own safety. But the situation was different now.
They came to the Zhao family, in fact they only wanted to meet Zhao Lingyu, so there was no point in trying to find Ren Sheng.
That Ren Sheng was a smart person. Originally, Ivor felt that the teenager who had only slightly revealed his true face in the video was a little too innocent, but now his feelings had changed.
After the meeting, the two of them might be able to have a good chat.
The butler took them directly into the Zhao family house – Shen Qiushi didn’t stop these people from seeing Zhao Lingyu. Earlier, they did not dare to come in because of their own timidity.
As soon as the five of them reached the door, they saw a teenager running out with a big bowl of water. He ran very fast, but the water in the bowl didn’t spill out at all. When they walked in, he immediately brought this water to the old butler, “Grandpa butler, drink this water!”
“Young Master Ren Sheng?” The old butler thought it was a bit strange but he quickly took the water and drank it.
The water was a little bitter and tasted strange, but after drinking it he actually felt stronger. The old butler suddenly thought of the medicine Ren Sheng gave to Zhao Peng.
“Are you Ren Sheng?” Ivor looked at the boy who just barely reached his chest and wanted to thank him for his kindness.
Ren Sheng nodded at random, taking the empty bowl and leaving.
What about the showdown between two smart people? This guy popped out to feed the butler a bowl of water and left them alone? If he was kind and innocent, shouldn’t he talk to them about the Marshal? If he was calculating, shouldn’t he test them out at this time?
“Ren Sheng, wait a minute.” Ellie didn’t have as many thoughts as Ivor so she directly stopped him.
“What do you want?” Ren Sheng looked curiously at the other person. It was like there was a fire on Ellie’s body and he felt a little uncomfortable just being near her.
Earlier Zhao Lingyu had the same energy in him, and it almost roasted him.
“Hello, I’ve always wanted to meet you. Thank you for being by the Marshal’s side and for your willingness to take care of him.” Ellie solemnly thanked him and took out a small storage magnetic card, “This is my gift for you.”
“Oh, thank you.” Ren Sheng took the magnetic card and bounced off again. He knew this kind of magnetic card had cartoons in it!
“Ellie, what did you give him?” Wu Shuai asked puzzled.
“My treasured videos.” Ellie’s face was filled with pride.
“It shouldn’t be 18+ prohibited videos, right?” Wu Shuai laughed.
He was indeed flattened as Ellie kicked him on the leg. “You pervert, they are Marshal’s videos!”
“Hurry up!” The old butler said in a cold voice with a straight face.
The butler was always amiable. What’s the matter? Ivor who always thought he was clever, couldn’t figure it out – they didn’t do anything wrong, did they?
The old butler, not caring about these five people, suddenly walked very fast. He was now full of energy, but he also… had diarrhea.
When Zhao Lingyu’s men stood in front of Zhao Lingyu again, the old butler went straight to the latrine. Ren Sheng inserted the magnetic card into his contact terminal, intending to watch cartoons.
But what appeared on the screen instead of the cartoon, was Zhao Lingyu.
