Chapter 132: Do I Have Any Other Options? (Part one)
When Chang Qing opened his eyes again, he had almost suffocated from holding his breath . He only dared to open them after hearing the screaky tire noises of the other car . Seeing that the car he was in had passed through safely but still being terrified, he immediately cursed at Xu Cheng, “Are you trying to kill yourself?”
Xu Cheng glanced at Chang Qing from the rear view mirror and said in disdain, “Can’t stand this kind of pressure? How did you guys rule the streets earlier?”
Chang Qing didn’t know how to refute that remark for a while, but his mouth was still trembling as he said, “Aren’t you scared?”
“I am,” Xu Cheng frankly said, “but the assassins are even more scared than me . Normally, it’s the assassins that do the killing, and if they could think of another way to take down their target, then they for sure wouldn’t pick the way that involves them dying as well . So, this guy isn’t dumb enough to trade his own life for our lives . ”
Chang Qing looked at Xu Cheng’s back and slowly said, “What did you do before all this? I’ve never heard of you . It seems like it’s no coincidence that North Gate and West Gate fell to their current states . ”
Xu Cheng’s tone reeked of disdain . “I turned your precious West Gate upside down . You are probably desperate to skin me alive and drink my blood, but instead, you are complimenting me . Do you think I don’t know you are trying to buff my confidence so I drop my guard against you?”
Chang Qing sighed . “A guy at your age shouldn’t have this kind of intelligence . ”
Xu Cheng: “I was forced to have it . ”
The car stopped at an intersection waiting for red light, and at that moment, a cross-country motorcycle came up from the rear . The motorcycle rider was wearing a helmet and was fully covered in a special suit . Under normal circumstances, it wasn’t odd at all . But it was in the middle of the night with no sun, and he also just happened to park right beside Xu Cheng’s car instead of anyone else’s . This raised a red flag for Xu Cheng .
Before Chang Qing could even react to the rider, Xu Cheng noticed that he was reaching into his jacket to pull out something . Suddenly, Xu Cheng slammed open the door, knocking the motorcycle rider down onto the ground, and the pistol he was reaching for subsequently dropped to the ground .
Xu Cheng immediately stepped on the gas and took off as the light turned green .
Looking at the killer on the ground behind them, Chang Qing’s heart was still pounding hard . “How did you know he was after us?”
Xu Cheng continued on driving as he said, “We weren’t the first ones waiting at the red light, there were still two cars in front of us . As a motorcyclist, he could just go up and stop beside the first car, yet he chose to stop right beside us . Of course he was suspicious . ”
In fact, Xu Cheng’s eyes already saw the gun on that killer, so he knocked him over before he had the chance to pull it out!
Chang Qing’s heart was pounding . “Looks like East Gate wants me dead too, why aren’t the people of South Gate here yet . ”
Xu Cheng sneered, “If they are going to be here, they would’ve came a long time ago . You really think you can rely on South Gate? East Gate and the underground money house won’t let us successfully go back to the Police HQ tonight . ”
Chang Qing was really nervous and he quickly moved over and said in a hoarse voice, “Officer Xu, you said you would protect me . ”
Xu Cheng: “I didn’t say that . I just said if you give the police what they want, they will save you from the death penalty, but you still get a life-sentence . You can also choose to not cooperate . ”

Just as he said that, at the turn, a truck suddenly charged right at them .
Xu Cheng’s powerful vision had noticed it a long time ago, and he immediately turned the steering wheel to avoid the impact of that truck and drove off into another direction . The truck also turned around quickly and went after it . It was clear that they didn’t plan on letting Xu Cheng off this easily and get back to the Police HQ .
“How much longer until we get back?” Chang Qing anxiously asked Xu Cheng .
“At least three more crossroads, so about 5 kilometers . ”
Just as he said that, the car violently shook . The truck behind them was already bumping into Xu Cheng’s car . There were quite a lot of cars on the road so Xu Cheng couldn’t drive too fast, thus the truck was able to quickly catch up to them and bump them .
Xu Cheng immediately began analyzing all the road sections in front of them, and he saw that there was an alley that could lead directly to another main road .
“It looks like they had planned from the beginning to force us to leave the main road leading to the Police HQ, making it easier for them to take care of us in a more remote place,” Xu Cheng quickly said .
The main roads were wide and large, so it wasn’t convenient for killers to carry out assassinations . There would also be too many traffic police patrols on those road sections .
Seeing the alley coming up, Xu Cheng suddenly turned the steering wheel, driving the car into the alley .
The truck immediately followed behind, but then the driver realized it was a narrow alley; the truck’s body was too big and got stuck .
“Fack!” The killer cursed as he picked up the phone and said, “He’s driving towards the mainroad . Hurry and block off the other end of the alley . ”
Xu Cheng underestimated the killers that East Gate had trained over the years . He didn’t expect that although low in numbers, their operations had great synergy . Clearly, the string of assassination attempts on the road were very natural and they were right on point in terms of timing and location . Just the past 3 times alone, if Xu Cheng wasn’t being careful, it would’ve ended in a horrible traffic accident . More importantly, the killers also didn’t reveal their faces .
“Looks like it’s quite easy for these guys to kill whoever they want, even the police won’t be able to do anything about it if they just push it onto traffic accidents,” Xu Cheng sighed .
Chang Qing also said with a weak voice, “I didn’t expect to receive this treatment one day too . ”
Just as he said that, he noticed Xu Cheng’s car suddenly coming to a stop . He immediately looked up, and then his face was paled, because the other end of the valley was already blocked off by a van .
Then, three people came out of the van . Since it was night time, the alley was very dark and their faces were covered by shadows . But Chang Qing knew that these three were all killers .
Chang Qing suddenly began laughing . “I didn’t expect to die and also be able to drag you down to hell with me . That’s not a bad ending . You destroyed West Gate, so taking you down with me isn’t a bad option too . ”
Xu Cheng felt that this guy was probably going a bit crazy thinking that he couldn’t live anymore, so he tried to comfort him . “I’m an officer, they won’t just come at me this directly, right?”
Chang Qing sneered, “At this time, those people were all desperate to kill you . Who knows if you are going to go after East Gate after taking down West Gate . ”
Xu Cheng: “About what I said earlier, did you make a decision? Are you planning to die here or live in prison?”
Chang Qing looked at him and said, “At this time, do I have any choice other than death?”
Xu Cheng: “Yes . ”
