Chapter 126: Lin Dong Asking to Become an Apprentice (Part one)
Sitting inside her apartment, Lin Chuxue was holding a newspaper . It was the morning news of Shangcheng, and the largest casino in the city being shut down had already become a hot topic . During this event, core figures behind West Gate were detained for investigation .
Reading this, Lin Chuxue knew that West Gate’s era had come to an end .
She sighed . “He really changed . Within a month, West Gate and North Gate were both reduced to lingering on their last breaths . He really is capable . ”
On the side, Lin Guiren pushed up his reading glasses and said, “Yeah, he’s a lot better now, but he would sooner or later go pull that Ye Family string . Chuxue, that’s his choice, so you should just come back to Britain with us . ”
Lin Chuxue bitterly smiled . “Dad, what about this marriage then?”
Lin Guiren sighed . “Daughter, Dad knows that you still accepted this marriage despite Xu Cheng rejecting it on that night I brought it up because you were thankful for all that he had done for you over the years . You are my daughter, you think I don’t know my daughter enough to know that she’s only grateful for what Xu Cheng did but doesn’t actually love him? Now, you came back to the country with him for four years, and you two had been each doing your own thing . If that’s going to be the case for the future too, then you should just come home with us and not put yourself in any more risk here . ”
Lin Chuxue didn’t say anything, and her eyes rested on a pair of fish kissing inside the water tank .
At night, by an open-roof bar beside the river, Shen Yao, Xu Cheng, and Ran Jing raised their glasses .
“Cheers . ”
Shen Yao happily looked at Xu Cheng and said, “You almost scared me to death that day . Thank god I pretended to go to the washroom and then left from the side door . I knew West Gate’s people would for sure follow me, Do you think that if they found out I was there to snipe Joseph on purpose, they would send a dozen men after me and violate me?”
Xu Cheng looked at her like he was looking at an alien and said, “You really like to be violated that much?”
“Go away!” Shen Yao retorted, but then she began laughing out loud, “Woohoo, we got tons of money!”
Ran Jing sipped on her beer and asked her, “How much did you guys win?”
Shen Yao said satisfyingly, “Almost 3 billion!”
Ran Jing’s eyes opened up wide . “What?!”
Xu Cheng smiled as he poured her another glass . “Almost that much . If we don’t win that much, Joseph wouldn’t have been angry enough to stir up the storm . ”
Ran Jing still had no clue about Xu Cheng’s operation . “How much did you guys really go in with?”
Xu Cheng: “To snipe their money-laundering operation, I prepared 1 . 5 billion yuan for Shen Yao to gamble with . ”
Ran Jing looked at Shen Yao, then looked at Xu Cheng as she mockingly asked, “You were not scared that this girl’s brain would cause you to lose all that money? You really do have a big heart . ”
Shen Yao immediately glared at Ran Jing . “Hey, what do you mean? What about my brain? I have a really good brain! I’ve kept my innocence like a nun in a profession like mine, isn’t that enough to prove that I have a good brain?”
Ran Jing laughed . “But for real though, how did you guys win that much money? Logically speaking, those clients that were there to launder money probably had help from the casino?”

“You asked the right question . ” Shen Yao coughed, and she looked extremely proud of herself . “Have you seen those gambling god movies? I was competing with Joseph on all fronts, whether it was intelligence or courage . First, I won 600 million from him, and that guy was not convinced, so he tried so hard to get me to stay and play again . I had no choice but to teach him how to gamble, especially that last round . Guess what hand he got? A straight flush! But as for me, I wasn’t nervous at all and had everything under control . I controlled my expressions just right to lure him to raise all the way until the end . We both put down about 200 million . You weren’t there, but the atmosphere was so intense that it was as if whoever loses would jump out of a window . When he showed his hand, it did shock me . But, I taught him an expensive lesson with a slightly bigger hand!”
Ran Jing looked at Shen Yao, then asked Xu Cheng, “Is what she said true?”
Xu Cheng smiled and nodded . “Yeah, she almost exposed her hand a few times because she couldn’t control her expressions . ”
Shen Yao lightly punched Xu Cheng’s chest and argued, “My acting skills are better than you! If you were in my shoes, you wouldn’t be as calm as me for sure!”
“Yeah, you were very calm . ” Xu Cheng couldn’t help but remind her, “Who suddenly screamed after winning the first round? And who went for another scream that almost broke my eardrums after the last round?”
Shen Yao immediately glared at him . “Just shut up!”
Ran Jing also smiled and added, “I don’t believe Shen Yao would really go gamble with a couple billion . Xu Cheng, did you do some preparations beforehand?”
Shen Yao looked at Xu Cheng and asked curiously as well, “Yeah, I also wanted to ask, how did you know their hands? It seems like you could accurately guess their hand every round . ”
Xu Cheng couldn’t tell them his secret, so he could only say, “The dealer was my guy, didn’t you notice that he didn’t help Joseph during critical moments?”
Shen Yao actually bought it too, and Ran Jing wasn’t there, so she didn’t see how Xu Cheng terrifying controlled everything through thin air . But, she was very curious about the whole planning process, and she suddenly asked, “Then can you tell me your whole plan now? When I saw your action plan earlier at the HQ, I was tempted to pretend to not know you . ”
Xu Cheng smiled, and he straightened out his logic and began talking, “The breakthrough started from my insider getting me the intel that West Gate was going to launder money . So, I seized this opportunity and planned the whole thing . I told Shen Yao to snipe Joseph and cause him to lose enough money to stir up trouble . He would for sure get into contact with the source of the money behind the deal, and I already bugged his phone and eavesdropped the call, getting my eyes on a guy called Chang Qing . Just as rumored, there were really four bosses behind West Gate running the show, and Chang Qing was their head . The three old men caught at the port were the other three . ”
The three of them chatted, and at that moment, a waiter came over with a huge plate of seafood, placed it on the table, and then said, “Sir, the guest over there wanted to treat you . ”
Xu Cheng curiously looked over and saw the blonde teen from before . “Lin Dong . ”
That little brat was smiling and waving from the other table . “Brother Cheng!”
Originally, Xu Cheng wanted to decline the free food, but after seeing it was Lin Dong, he no longer held back . He just turned around and said to the other two girls, “No worries, just eat up . ”
Then, he took a big bite as well .
Lin Dong immediately came over, and being very serious, he made the fist-to-palm gesture and said, “Since you accepted my treat, then Master, please accept me as your apprentice . ”
Xu Cheng almost choked on the meat . He looked at Lin Dong in surprise, seeing him standing there up straight and being very sincere .
“What is he trying to do?” Shen Yao asked Xu Cheng curiously .
Lin Dong saw Shen Yao sitting closer to Xu Cheng, so he naturally made the assumption that she was Xu Cheng’s woman and immediately paid his respect to Shen Yao as well like in the Kung Fu movies, calling in a very serious manner, “Master’s Madam!”
Ran Jing directly sprayed out the beer inside her mouth . Lin Dong thought he did something wrong, and he immediately paid the palm-to-fist respect towards Ran Jing and said, “This is also the Master’s Madam? Hehe, Master is indeed the master, he really knows his game . ”
