Ye You didn’t immediately went back and report to the Cultural Regiment, but planned to delay it for a few days. He wanted to watch the old man treating Du Yao with his own eyes, and wait after a period of time before went back to Cultural Regiment.

Elder Xu was preparing medicine that would be used on Du Yao. Ye You took the initiative to help. Seeing that Ye You movement were neat and tidy, he also did a good job in prescription and cooking medicine, the old man simply sat down and watched as he instructed Ye You to do it all. After preparing the same medicine, Ye You can dispense the same medicine without the old man told him for the second time. While making the prescription, he read out all the name and quantity of the medicine to the old man. He didn’t miss it even once, the old man couldn’t help but sigh at Ye You’s memory ability.

Ye You had intention of wanted to learn some medical skills from the old man, because when Du Yao was unconscious, the feeling of helplessness really made him very anxious. What’s more, Elder Xu was a National Treasure-level figure. Those famous doctors who want to get some guidance from him, but it was something that can’t even asked for. As long as Ye You can learn a little, he had earned2Raw 赚(zhuan); to earn; to make a profit. I’m not sure if he want to make profit out of it or he just feel that he has earned it even if he can learn a little bit. Let’s just keep reading to find the answer ba~ it.

When Elder Xu went to give Du Yao medicine and injection every day, Ye You would watched and learned silently. The old man saw that Ye You was looking seriously, and one day when he was going to give Du Yao an injection he suddenly said, “You come and try?”

Ye You froze for a while, then nodded and said yes. And then he was instructed by the old man to give Du Yao injection. The old man nodded with satisfaction while guiding him, and was surprised at Ye You’s learning ability and talent in his heart.

Elder Xu has already said to those doctors that they should not come over, but they still come to observed everyday. And there were more and more doctors coming. They were thinking ‘what if they have a chance to go in and have a look?’ They were afraid they will regretted it for a lifetime if they miss the chance, so they rather stand outside even if it wasting time. In addition, Ye You cooked soup and dishes for Du Yao every day, which attracted a large crowd of people to watch each time. It was really inconvenient in the hospital. So, Du family took Du Yao home and let him continue recuperating and be treated at home.

But after Du Yao returned home, even more people began to come to the house. Some wanted to ask for Elder Xu to help diagnosed and treatment, and some wanted to asked Elder Xu about a secret recipe for longevity. The Du family was worried that Elder Xu would be impatient, don’t want to take part in this anymore and leave, so they sent Du Yao to a secret, quiet and secluded place, let Elder Xu lived there and help Du Yao for treatment.

And Ye You also should report back to the Cultural Regiment. Du Yao accepted the treatment of Elder Xu with a peace of mind. He could visited him at night every two or three days, and he could practice and rehearse in the Art and Literature group with ease during the day. Now Ye You doesn’t need to worry about Du Yao, time was also enough and the matter of teaching Ye Chen and Liu Hui a lessons also could start.

Ye You came to the Deputy Leader’s office and discussed with the Deputy Leader : “How about this? Every other week, just arrange a personal assessment for me. If my assessment passes, then the practice time is entirely up to me to arrange it. If the assessment fails, then my next time period will be entirely arranged by the teachers. What do you3Raw 您(nin); formal you. Normally use when talking to elder as show of respect. think?”

The Deputy Leader took a sip of tea and thought about it seriously.

“I have such a proposal, definitely not because I want to be lazy, but to improve the efficiency of practice. Since it is a Full Triathlon4Remember he’s now join in 3 groups; Musical band (his own group), Vocal band (singing) and now Dance team (YC’s group), no matter how reasonable the average time is allocated, the arrangement is too tight and the efficiency is reduced. But, if I judge in which place I’m lacking and focus on practicing, there is no need to practice again and again in the areas where I have been able to do well.”

“Let’s do it.” Deputy Leader put down the teacup and said: “First, try the method you said for a while. If your method doesn’t work, then follow my schedule.”

“Okay.” After Ye You agreed, he was silent for a while, and then said: “I have another request. I hope Deputy Leader can agree. As you know, Team Leader Liu has always dislike me, and some unpleasantness had happened between us. If I go to the Dance team to rehearse, neither of us will be in a good mood. In order not to affect the rehearsal, I hope you can arrange a teacher specifically for me so that I don’t need to have a direct contact with Team Leader Liu, otherwise… I don’t know what is going to happen again.”

Ye You has decided not to let Ye Chen and Liu Hui go easily. Since the two of them had insisted on provoking and angered him, they must bear the consequences. This was just the first step to make them regretted it.

Deputy Leader also felt that Liu Hui’s repeated targeting of Ye You was indeed too much. He had already understood the situation and knew that Liu Hui and Ye Chen’s mother were a very good friends. He felt that this was the main reason why Liu Hui protected Ye Chen and going against Ye You. And Liu Hui’s behavior not only disappointed him and the Head Leader, but also proved that her ideology were not high enough, and there were also big problems with her behavior. He and the Head Leader decided to observed her for a while because of her good guidance ability. However, Ye You’s worries were justified. He must also take precautions before something big really happens.

So, two days later, the Deputy Leader asked all the members of the Dance team to gather, and then took Ye You over and announced one thing.

“In order not to delay everyone’s practice time, I won’t say anything superfluous, just focus on the key points. In the future, Ye You will be responsible for the Full Triathlon in our Cultural Regiment. In other words, he will often come to the Dance team to practice and rehearse in the future. But because he had some unpleasant things with Team Leader Liu before, therefore, teacher Zhao Yuan will be responsible for his dance practice and guidance in the future. After discussing with Head Leader, I decided to let Teacher Zhao Yuan act as Deputy Team Leader of the Dance team and help Team Leader Liu shared various task of the Dance team.”

Liu Hui was not very happy when she saw Deputy Leader bring Ye You come to the Dance team. After listening to the Deputy Leader’s words, she was extremely angry, but she did not dare to say anything against it. She knew that the Deputy Leader and Head Leader paid special attention to Ye You now, and it was definitely Ye You who proposed to made Zhao Yuan the Deputy Team Leader, but no matter how angry and disgusted she was towards Ye You in her heart, she could only bear it for now.

“Team Leader Liu.” Deputy Leader called as he looked at Liu Hui.

“Yes.” Liu Hui took a step forward.

“In the future, all the affairs of Ye You in the Dance team will be taken care of by Teacher Zhao Yuan, so you don’t have to worry about it. If you are too busy, you can also ask Teacher Zhao Yuan to help and share it with you. The most important point is, the previous things are not allowed to happen again. If they happen again, Head Leader and I will not keep you anymore. Do you understand?” Deputy Leader’s warning tone was very obvious.

“Yes, I understand.” Liu Hui gritted her teeth after finished speaking, because of the anger and discomfort in her heart, no matter how hard she tried, her face had uncontrollably became particularly ugly.

“The other thing is that in the Cultural Regiment, healthy competition is allowed. You can express yourself by rely on your ability, but you are never allowed to use dirty methods, and you are not allowed to engage in small groups to exclude others. Once discovered, in no way you will be let off lightly!” Deputy Leader was clear in his heart that Liu Hui has been the Leader of the team for several years, and the members of the Dance team must listen to her instead of Zhao Yuan. In order to avoid Liu Hui using these dancers to excluded Ye You and cause serious consequences, the Deputy Leader had to warned them in advance.

“Teacher Zhao Yuan, from now on, you can be mainly responsible for the arrangements related to Ye You for the time being, but if Team Leader Liu needs it, you also have to cooperate as much as possible.” Deputy Leader looked at Zhao Yuan and said.

“Yes, I will definitely do all the work that I should do, and I will never disappoint Deputy Leader and Head Leader.” Zhao Yuan said with a smile.

Deputy Leader nodded and said, “That’s it, I don’t have anything else to say. You can discuss with Ye You on how to arrange and what to do next, and everyone else should hurry up and practice.”

After the Deputy Leader left, Zhao Yuan walked in front of Ye You and said, “Ye You, let’s go to the tea room. We won’t practice today. Let’s talk about the next arrangement first.”

“Okay.” Ye You smiled and nodded, then turned to look at Liu Hui and said, “Team Leader Liu, I’m really sorry, in the future I definitely will often come to the Dance team to practice. Originally I refused to join the Dance team, but the Head and Deputy Leader insisted that I have to take responsibilities of the Full Triathlon. In order to strive for more glory for the Cultural Regiment, I can only agree. If you really feel uncomfortable seeing me, then please ignore my existence.”

Another meaning of Ye You’s words was to let Liu Hui holding back even if she was not satisfied.

Liu Hui was about to explode. For the first time in her life, she was so angry but couldn’t let it out. Seeing Ye You’s triumphant eyes and Zhao Yuan’s happy expression, her head was dizzy with anger. There was no Deputy Team Leader in the Musical band and Vocal band, only their Dance team suddenly has a Deputy Team Leader. This was a great humiliation to her, and the one who caused all of this was Ye You who she always looked down upon.

“Teacher Liu, are you okay?” Ye Chen saw Liu Hui’s body was swaying, so he hurried to her and supported her. In fact, his heart was particularly uncomfortable, but as Ye You was getting more and more attention now, the more he and Liu Hui can’t give up to deal with him, they just had to be more cautious.

“I’m fine.” Liu Hui held her forehead, and after the dizziness passed, she said to Ye Chen, “You come with me, I have something to tell you.”

Liu Hui has the same idea as Ye Chen. She feels that the more powerful Ye You was, the more they had to deal with him carefully. They must not sit and wait for death5Resigned to one’s fate (idiom), otherwise this time there was an additional Deputy Team Leader to share her rights, the next time she might loses her position as a Team Leader, it was very likely that she will leave the Cultural Regiment in the end, and her efforts in her half of a lifetime will be ruined. In that case, she might as well die.

After Liu Hui and Ye Chen also left, the other members of the Dance team pretended to practice earnestly on their own, and couldn’t help but talked in a low voice.

“Ye You is just a recruit. The Head and Deputy Leader actually let him take care of the Full Triathlon. Isn’t they think too highly of him? Can he really do it?”

“That right, I heard that for so many years, the one that can do the Full Triathlon in the Cultural Regiment can be counted with both hands. Even if he has such abilities, he is still a recruit after all. Is it too hasty to let him take on the Triathlon now?”

“But Ye You’s violin and singing are indeed very good. Although I don’t know how his dances are, but since the Head Leader and Deputy Leader insisted on letting him take the Full Triathlon, it will definitely not be bad.”

“I really envy him very much that my heart and liver are hurt. Why don’t I have the ability to do so? I don’t dare to expect to be like him to do the Triathlon. As long as there is one thing that I can be the best at, I am willing to be a vegetarian6Raw 吃斋(chi zhai); to abstain from eating meat. He means it in a religious beliefs and recite Buddha scripture for the rest of my life and do more good deeds.”

“What can we do even if we are envious of him? This kind of thing is heaven bestowed rice to eat7Raw 老天爷赏饭吃(Lǎotiānyé shǎng fàn chī); goodnight (from Google translate) can u believe it?! 😂😂😂 The lit. meaning is God/heavens bestow rice to eat. (As you see above). I have no choice but to look for the real meaning on other sites again Orz and this is what I’ve got → 老天爷赏饭吃 it’s just an adjective to describe someone who is super talented in a certain point that even God/heavens favor them.. People are different from birth. People’s8I think they might means that some people’s fate  are different from each other, some good, some bad. And here they means Ye You who already had good fate or talented even from birth life are destined to be better than us.”

“In the future, our Dance team will have one Team Leader and one Deputy Team Leader. You said, who should we listen to in the future?”

“If it was before, definitely listened to Team Leader Liu ah, but now it seems that if Ye You’s performance get better and better, Team Leader Liu is likely to be unable to protect herself. But for those of us, it is best not to offend both sides for the time being, let’s see what will happen later.”

Ye You got the permission to arrange the practice time by himself, on the contrary it was easier than before, and the time was more free. He doesn’t worry at all about the assessment, it was good as long as he knows best his own level and don’t performed too well.

Those poor doctors *snicker*

And for Liu Hui, it was just the beginning!
