“Let’s play!” Evelyn walked directly to Josua and said solemnly.
Josua was stunned for a moment and then shook his head. “Forget it, the three rounds yesterday have already made me very tired. My brain can’t work now…”
Evelyn said with a gloomy expression, “That’s so shameless. How can you refuse me after you won?”
Josua smiled and said, “I was just lucky enough to beat you a quarter-point, don’t be so fussy. Can’t you afford to lose?”
Evelyn took a deep breath and then said to Josua with a fake smile, “You approached me because you want to see my sister Flora, right? If you play Go with me, I will let you see her!”
Flora Mendez was the ultimate weapon of the Mendez Family. It was said that her strength was still stronger than Ralph’s. Josua had always been very curious about this woman.
Evelyn was right, he did get close to her for Flora!
Josua would not be so stupid as to play Go with Evelyn on the spot. It was not him playing the three rounds with her yesterday. Of course, Josua never thought that Jade’s playing skills would be so terrifying that she could win two rounds in a row after losing one round first.
“I also really want to play Go with you, but I’m not a professional player after all, and my mental exhaustion is very serious. Let’s play it when I’m free,” Josua said with a smile.
Evelyn’s expression darkened, and she reached out to grab Josua’s forearm. But at this moment, Josua waved his hand, drew a circle, and retracted it.
Evelyn took a step forward and punched him in the face, but Josua moved away slightly and wiped her fist away softly.
“You are indeed good at Tai Chi,” Evelyn said expressionlessly.
Her attack just now was just to test whether Josua really knew Tai Chi, and what he did was enough to explain it. Now she was very sure that the person who had played against her yesterday was Josua.
A person could be judged by his playing style or the style of boxing.
In the two rounds of games she lost yesterday, the opponents played the way of using softness to overcome strength. Evelyn recognized the spirit of Tai Chi Josua played today.
“Who are you? Don’t disturb our practice,” Valentina stepped forward at this time and said coldly.
“Excuse me?” Evelyn turned to Valentina and said with a smile, “You feel that you’re good enough to challenge me now?”
Valentina’s eyes turned cold, and she said, “Do you want to try me now?”
Josua blocked them, waved his hands, and said, “Don’t fight with her, this woman is playing hard Tai Chi, you are no match for her…”
Josua had seen how Evelyn threw out a gangster last time, and he was very clear about her ability. Valentina’s level at present was not good enough to compete with her.
“How do you know that?” Valentina said.
After being tempered in Devendill Prison, her personality had become a lot tougher, and she spoke much more flinty than usual. Evelyn didn’t pay any attention to Valentina, but said to Mozart, “When will you play Go with me?”
Josua said lazily, “Another day. See you online when I’m free.”
Evelyn felt it was strange, so she asked, “Why can’t we play offline?”
Josua said without any guilt, “I’m very busy. How could have time to sit down and play Go with you?”
Evelyn thought about it and felt it made sense. She walked away with the chessboard on her back, and her ponytail flicked back and forth in a very rhythmic way. Her back made people feel very fresh and refined.
“Is she good?” Valentina frowned and said in a puzzled tone, “Why can’t I feel it?”
”She is Evelyn Mendez, a professional level-3 player in Go. She is probably influenced by Go, so you can’t feel her fierce aura of a warrior. She looks weak, but if you really want to fight, you are really no match for her… She can throw a strong man meters away with a single stroke,” Josua smiled at Valentina and explained seriously.
Julian also nodded aside and said, “This woman is really dangerous. I have been in the special forces for many years, and I have a natural intuition. I feel that a fierce tiger is sleeping in this woman’s body. Once it wakes up, it will be terrifying… Sometimes, you can’t tell a person from her appearance.”
Josua felt that Julian was being pretentious when he heard this, so he kicked his ass and said, “Stop your stuff and nonsense. Keep going on your basic training!”
Julian felt so aggrieved. Stefan kept doing his basic training honestly, but he complained wildly in his heart.
Valentina sighed, “Lever-3 in Go, and she is also so good in force. It seems that she is really a genius… There are people and people!”
Josua tilted his head to look at her and said, “Stop your humblebrag!”
Valentina said in surprise, “Me? Humblebrag?”
Josua said, “You graduated from Stanford and served as the secretary of the board of directors of Poly Capital. You have over a million annual salary and the talent for practicing martial arts. Why should you envy others?”
Julian nodded repeatedly to express his agreement. After all, Josua made Valentina practice more, and he couldn’t even finish the basic training.
Valentina was stunned for a moment and then said a little embarrassedly, “It seems that I’m also good!”
Hearing at Valentina’s words Josua was speechless for a moment.
“There a metaphysical level in cultivating. Know yourself, know the world, know all living beings. Knowing yourself, means that you should realize your insignificance in the world, but you shouldn‘t belittle yourself for that. Having an invincible heart is the most important thing.” Josua looked at Valentina and gave her a lesson.
“Actually, I think this should be reversed. Know all living beings, know the world, and finally, know yourself. You’ll appreciate the ups and downs of life when you are trying to know all living beings. And when you go to know the world, you’ll see the vastness of the universe and the magnificence of the gods. Finally, you’ll know how small you are, and you should keep a heart of reverence forever to keep your bottom line of morality.”
Valentina was a top student who graduated from Stanford and had also taken high-level philosophy courses. After hearing what Josua said, she couldn’t believe that he would say such profound things.
It was like she heard an old professor say, “The more knowledgeable I am, the more I believe in God. I believe that he created everything, and then I am in awe. Therefore, I can regard all living beings as equal to mine. I have a heart of awe, so I don’t believe in the power and don’t get lost in desire. The end of philosophy is theology.”
Compared to what Josua said just now, there were similarities between those words.
At this time, she realized something and thought.
No wonder the highest state of martial arts is to break the void and see the gods…
After the morning exercise, Josua invited Julian and Valentina to breakfast at the entrance of the park as usual. However, before they finished breakfast, Josua received a call from the manager of the storage and transportation department.
“Mr. Evans, something happened. The people from the health bureau stopped all our trucks, saying that they had received a report that we were transporting illegal drugs, and they needed to do a routine checking,” the manager said in a hurry.
When Josua heard that, he was furious.
This Mr. MacMillan is taking the road to ruin!
