Hucheng, a tranquil and beautiful small town that sat on the east side of Fanyang Lake .
Compared to a major metropolitan like Wanghai, the pace of life here was slow . There were no towering skyscrapers, crowded streets, nor an endless stream of traffic on the streets . The buildings along the streets were only four or five stories high with first floor shops . This type of scenery was hard to see in Wanghai city .
After being used to the propensity of the big city, occasionally breathing the air of a small town indeed was a unique experience .
Watching the familiar but strange scenes outside the window, Jiang Chen somehow felt melancholic about coming home .
Since he entered Wanghai university five years ago, he rarely came back . After his graduation, he didn't even go home . He calculated, since the last time he came, it has been more than two years .
With the dream of building his own career in the big city, as well as being a proud university student, he swore when he graduated that without becoming successful, he will never come back . Now that he thought about it, when he graduated, he didn't live the best life .
But life is always filled with countless coincidences . The life full of hardships only lasted for a year before his life became a fantastic journey that was almost impossible to imagine . Not only did he drive a luxury car accompanied by a beauty, a Senata from the General Staff Department followed him .
Not even the governor of the province could receive this type of treatment .
When the car passed through the high school he attended, the familiar gate as well as the aged face in the security room flashed by . Looking at the rusty school emblem, Jiang Chen felt even more melancholic .
"Should we stop here for a bit?" Ayesha noticed the change in Jiang Chen's expression as she caringly asked .
"No need, I want to go home earlier . " Taking a deep breath, Jiang Chen shook his head .
The people he longed for the most was without a doubt his parents .
Finally coming home . . .
Looking at the familiar street, a genuine smile appeared on his face .
"Mhmm . " Ayesha scanned the GPS and accelerated .
The black Senata following them also picked up the speed as it followed Jiang Chen's Maybach without missing a beat .
It was a young man sitting in the driver seat . He looked sharp, but also unsettled . He looked like he was new to the job . The man called Dagger sat in the passenger seat . With eyes narrowed, he looked like he was taking a nap . But the people who know him all knew, if you thought he was asleep, you would be absolutely wrong .
"Business people are so damn rich," Miao Jun holding the steering wheel stared at the Maybach and said enviously .
Living in a mansion, driving a luxury car .
But envy was envy . With his meager salary, there was no hope of buying a car like that .
Dagger opened his eyes to glance at his partner before continuing to close his eyes . His voice sounded reminiscent .
"Experience life more when you are young . When the time is right, someone will ask you if you will leave or get promoted . If you decide to leave, once you take off your uniform, you can go work as a bodyguard for rich people . The money you earn is enough to buy one . "
The people wealthy enough to hire ex-agents as bodyguards would not cheap out on the money . Since the bodyguards' loyalty is connected to their life . The comrades that he worked with within the General Staff Department that chose to leave all made enough money not only for a car but a lovely house . But him, with all forms of injuries, only the shiny badges brought some comfort .
But he didn't regret anything . Because he is a soldier, the moment he enlisted, he decided to continue down this route .
Miao Jun looked at Dagger in shock and laughed in embarrassment .
"We'll see . Leaving the army is still too far away . "
Dagger cracked a smile, and the wrinkles on his face were squished together .
Although his partner named Miao Jun didn't say anything, he knew the young man would decide to leave the army . It was a different time now . Nothing wrong to consider more for yourself . There were only foolish men like him who would contribute his entire life to the greater good .
"Not early, make up your mind earlier . Once this mission is completed, your profile will be promoted . If you perform well, it won't be long before someone asks you the question . "
"Haha, Commander Dagger, what do you think about my ability . " Miao Jun laughed with a sense of pride in his voice .
He had the pride of the young generation . Since he was a top student from military school, regardless if it was digital warfare, fighting, or shooting, he obtained A+ in every category . He did have the right to be prideful .
But Dagger just laughed and said .
"Enough to be a bodyguard for a small boss, but still too naive for people who fear death . "
He didn't hear the praise he expected to hear . Miao Yun paused for a moment as he made an awkward face .
"People who fear death?"
Dagger didn't respond to Miao Jun's question as he closed his eyes and continued to rest .
Miao Jun glanced at the old commander, displeased .
[As the newcomer of the new generation, what kind of qualifications do you have as an old man who didn't even go to university to berate me like this?]
Under this mixture of emotion, he couldn't hide his temper and spoke with an attitude .
"This is a B level mission, could you take it more seriously?"
Dagger opened his eyes as he looked dubiously at Miao Yun, he only left a sentence with deeper meanings before he closed his eyes again .
"The person sitting in the car in front is a person that fears death . "
Miao Jun was confused .
This means he has a powerful bodyguard?
[But other than the foreign girl driving, who else is in the car?]
[Could someone be hiding in the trunk?]
Dagger peeked at his confused expression and shook his head secretively .
While this rookie has the abilities to be successful, his observation skill is too weak . As an agent, weak ability doesn't matter . But a flaw in observation is the most critical weakness of all .
On the car in front, not only was Dagger unable to see the boundary of the VIP being protected, but he also sensed the foreign girl driving the car with a cold expression has abilities that should not be underestimated .
Although the mission was B, there was no difficulty at all .
. . .
Whatever the two people behind them thought, Jiang Chen had no interest at all . Just like what Dagger suggested, he and Ayesha pretended that those two didn't exist .
It was around half an hour more before the car drove into an old looking neighborhood .
He parked the car, held onto Ayesha's hand, and stepped onto the familiar concrete stairs .
When he climbed to the fourth stairs, looking at the old door, he had a bitter smile on his face .
In three months time, he had sent over one million home . But by the looks of it, mom and dad didn't even touch the money .
Jiang Chen inhaled deeply, raised his hand, and gently knocked on the door .
Ayesha who stood beside him had a rare frantic expression on her face . Although the franticness was carefully hidden behind her cold mask, when she met Jiang Chen's eyes, her coldness melted away, and her nervousness of "meeting the parents" was exposed .
Jiang Chen squeezed her hand as he gave a comforting smile .
"Don't be nervous, my parents are nice people . "
But even though he was the person saying that he began to feel nervous himself .
Half a month ago he just told his mom he has no girlfriend, but now he brought a foreign girl back . Would mom and dad be happy or . . .
The footsteps behind the door began to approach .
The door opened .
Staring at the emotional figure behind the door, Jiang Chen felt his eyes tearing up .
