Chapter 43: Martial Arts Party
Zhou Ping directly looked at Xu Xiaoxuan. The confidence flashing in his eyes made Xu Xiaoxuan afraid to directly look at him.
“Since you don’t understand, I will explain it to you for the sake of the friendship between our two families.” Zhou Ping was embarrassed in his heart. It seemed that there was no one fate, two luck, and three omen. This could make him pretend to be a man of culture.
“The so-called “fate” points out to your natural talent. If you come from a wealthy and powerful family, you are already a master. If you have outstanding talent, you are naturally the envy of everyone, and you can easily reach a position that people around you can’t match. This is fate! The better the fate, the better the background and talents you have, and the less effort is required. For example, I, born in the country’s top family, do not need to work hard to be destined to be extraordinary.
“The second is luck. Those who have prosperous fortunes do things to get god’s help. Good luck turns out to be good luck. The more profound the road is, the more smooth things will be, and the more extraordinary achievements will be.
“Fate and luck cannot be controlled by humans. These two are above all else.
“Omen, ranked third, is something that people can start to influence.
“The so-called omen does not refer to contempt, but refers to the environment.
“The environment of growth has a great impact on people. The old saying that Buddah’s mother moved three times refers to the environment. This environment also contains the network. Excluding the effect of fate, a person born and raised in a den of thieves is doomed and can only be a thief. This is the saying that a dragon gives birth to a dragon and a phoenix gives birth to a phoenix. The son of a mouse will only make holes.
“Shallow water can’t breed dragons. The kind of environment will create the same kind of people. If you can recognize this, humans can also choose a better environment than the current one. Don’t underestimate this. Change. Even ordinary people persist for several generations and may even become rich.”
“This is omen
A burst of applause sounded, Zhou Ping and the others looked around. Xu Xiangrong was applauding. Behind him, Uncle Zhang was holding a pot of twice-cooked pork.
“I haven’t seen you in five years, and Aping has actually grown to such a point. This explanation is really shocking!”
“Let Grandpa Xu laugh.” Zhou Ping quickly said modestly.
“Don’t be polite.” Grandpa Xu took the big pot in Zhang’s hand and placed it on the table. “What Aping said is reasonable. Xiaoxuan, you have to listen carefully.” Xu Xiangrong turned his head and looked at Zhou Ping.
“Aping, continue. I am very interested in hearing what follows.”
“Yes.” Zhou Ping nodded.
“Four accumulate yin virtue. The so-called yin virtue is to do good deeds without preaching.”
“Well, isn’t it stupid? What is the difference between not saying good things and not doing it? Who doesn’t do something good and spreads it around for fear that others will not know it.” Xu Xiaoxuan retorted.
“And what happened to those people?” Zhou Ping asked rhetorically. “In accumulating yin virtue, there is also the word ‘accumulate’. You have to do good for a long time without asking for reward. Others are not fools, so they will naturally notice. If you are good to others, others will help you when you need it. At least, they are willing to help you without harming their interests.
“Don’t underestimate these people, developing connections is very scary. Who doesn’t have many promising friends? I helped you. You introduced your promising friends to me. My relationship with him has improved again. He will introduce his friends, and I know those who are promising.
“With this level of success, from generation to generation, the status is constantly improved. As long as you don’t lose your heart, it will be extraordinary.”
“This is good!” Xu Xiangrong couldn’t help but applaud after hearing what Zhou Ping said. At the same time, he was even more looking forward to Zhou Ping’s explanation of the five readings.
Zhou Ping was not interrupted by Xu Xiangrong’s applause and went on.
“Fifth, reading. Reading here refers to learning. If a person has an ordinary destiny, a bad environment, and cannot keep doing good deeds, then the only way he can improve his status is to study hard.
“The so-called three hundred and sixty lines are the top picks. Anyone who shines shoes can open a factory, and anyone who begs can be a rich man. What do they rely on? Study. Work hard to learn professional knowledge.
“I won’t talk about carpenters and fitters. The income of top technicians is beyond the reach of ordinary people. In begging, how to make people more willing to give more is science. Any line, as long as they continue to study hard, will they not get ahead?”
“Wonderful, wonderful.” Xu Xiangrong admired. “In terms of strength, Aping now is definitely worthy of being the first among the younger generation. I did not expect that he has his own unique understanding of these. The Zhou family is also behind him. The rise of Aping starts here.”
With constant sighs in his heart, Xu Xiangrong looked at Xu Xiaoxuan, who was dissatisfied next to him, and shook his head slightly. “In the past, I saw that although Aping is weak in martial arts, he has his own gulf. That’s why I tried my best to match Xiaoxuan and Aping. Unfortunately, Xiaoxuan didn’t know how to grasp it. Now that Aping’s martial arts aptitude appears, he has a very strong skill. Watching Aping’s performance today, it is the power of the dragon and the phoenix dance. I am afraid I will look down on Xiaoxuan.”
The Zhou family and the Xu family are dead-end family friends. Zhou Ping’s strength was the foundation of that as Elder Zhou also told Xu Xiangrong.
“Fantastic, Aping had an epiphany, and he has since flown to the sky. Fortunately, my Xu family and Zhou family are fated. I am afraid I will rely on Aping more in the future.” The sigh in his heart continued, but Elder Xu did not show it. After turning over a few large bowls, he took out a bottle of white wine. Elder Xu wanted to pour it on Zhou Ping.
“Don’t, Grandpa Xu. I don’t drink.” Zhou Ping quickly pushed it back.
“Come on. You don’t drink? Didn’t you fool Xiaoxuan to steal alcohol? Why? You think I don’t know?” Xu Xiangrong looked at Zhou Ping with a smile.
“Grandpa!” Xu Xiaoxuan stared at Zhou Ping bitterly when Xu Xiangrong mentioned that.
At that time, the two families wanted to match up the two. Zhou Ping knew that Xu’s family had good wine, so he used this as a condition. As long as Xu Xiaoxuan got some good wine from the Xu family’s collection, he would not bother Xu Xiaoxuan. The two successfully reached an agreement that Xu Xiaoxuan would steal two bottles of good wine for Zhou Ping every month. Xu Xiaoxuan always thought that what she had done was perfect, but she didn’t expect her grandpa to tell her today.
“Grandpa Xu’s eyes are like a torch. How can I hide this little trick from you.” Zhou Ping was not annoyed when the lie was exposed, but he smiled and took the bottle. He first filled a cup for Elder Xu, then to himself.
“Come on. Eat twice-cooked meat. You have to take a gulp of meat and wine. That’s the taste.” Grandpa Xu picked up a large piece of twice-cooked meat, stuffed it in his mouth, chewed twice, and drank another sip of wine.
Zhou Ping learned. He also had a big mouthful of meat and wine and saw Elder Xu to be happy. Xu Xiaoxuan didn’t eat and just watched. The only embarrassment was Li Xiaoyi. Looking at the greasy twice-cooked pork, she was neither eating nor not eating.
Fortunately, no one noticed her. Zhou Ping and Grandpa Xu started to rise up after drinking, and they started flying. A large pot of twice-cooked meat was licked clean.
After drinking and eating, Grandpa Xu left, giving time for the two juniors. At this time, Xu Xiaoxuan changed Grandpa Xu’s meekness and looked at Zhou Ping ferociously.
“Hmph, seeing how much truth you have said, you must be capable. If you are really capable, I have a martial arts party in the afternoon. Do you dare to come and participate?”
