Chapter 135: Incoming Revenge (Part one)
Boss Chen: “That’s right . I mean, the four Gates can live or die, but we will definitely not end in this humiliating way and make this police tiger a hero . He must die! I definitely won’t let our four Gates become the background of some character’s story when people talk about it, especially when the guy’s just a rookie! I don’t care where he came from or what he used to do, but since he came to Shangcheng, he will have to play by our rules . North and West Gate may be cowards, but I will let everyone know that the police tiger is nothing but a kitty in front of me!”
Hetian looked at him, a bit surprised, and asked, “If you also want to kill him, why not get South Gate involved into this too?”
“South Gate’s in the food and retail business, and plus the nightclubs or spa places, they took the shortcut of sucking up to the officials in order for their businesses to run smoothly . Right now, the one party they shouldn’t offend the most is the government, so they are obviously afraid of getting into trouble . Their sharp spirit had long since been worn down, of course we won’t be able to rely on them . But that’s fine, that just means there’s one less to share the cake . Other people might be scared, but as the head of the four Gates, East Gate isn’t!”
In the evening, Xu Cheng made a big sneeze the moment he got home .
Shen Yao who had been watching a romance TV show saw him and asked, “Caught a cold?”
Xu Cheng rubbed his nose and said, “Nope, someone probably cursed me behind my back . ”
Ran Jing walked in from the balcony in her tight blue tank top . She flicked her hair and interjected, “You took down two Gates in Shangcheng, it would be abnormal if no one was cursing you behind your back . ”
Speaking of what Xu Cheng had been doing lately, Shen Yao was curious but also concerned as she asked, “You are not scared that they will feel too anxious about being forced into a corner and try to kill you?”
Xu Cheng smiled and replied, “Didn’t they already try? You are saying it as if the people that came to the hospital to assassinate me wasn’t sent by them . ”
Just then, Shen Yao remembered that when Xu Cheng was hospitalized, there were indeed some assassins that came in and tried to kill him . She actually forgot, and then she said, “Tsk tsk, is your profession always so dangerous?”
Ran Jing laughed and said, “Not necessarily . It depending on the kind of merits you seek . Xu Cheng has a big appetite and went after the four Gates right after getting hired . Isn’t that the equivalent of walking on knives? Look at how chill we have it, we just deal with little shrimps, and they are the ones that are scared of us . But the four Gates are different; they have claws, and they can be very fierce if you touch their cake . ”
“I killed one Gate, and left another Gate half dead in prison, can you tell me if I still have a way out?” Xu Cheng said as he took off his jacket and headed to the washroom to wash his face . However, at that moment, the lights in the entire unit suddenly went off and flashed back on . It seemed like the power breaker jumped, but the lights did immediately come back up .
Having lived here for so long, Xu Cheng was very familiar with the property management side of this building . Something like this had never happened before, and his intuition was telling him that something was off .
Immediately, he closed his eyes, and when he opened them again, his penetrating vision was activated . He directly began scanning the entire building, specifically looking for the power room . Very quickly, he spotted a few sketchy people doing something to the elevator . Although they were in technician overalls, Xu Cheng was sure that they were not doing maintenance to the elevator .
Also, in the power room, the security guard seemed to have been knocked unconscious . At the underground parking lot, there was also a guy checking out Xu Cheng’s car and confirming in a call that Xu Cheng should be upstairs .
Xu Cheng quickly wiped his face dry, came out from the bathroom, and said, “Shen Yao, for your safety, I still think you should move out . ”
“Why?” Shen Yao wasn’t happy .
Chapter 135: Incoming Revenge (Part two)
“I have a feeling that, to stop me from digging deeper, East Gate and the people from the underground money house won’t stop until I’m dead . I’m fine, but I just don’t want to drag the people beside me into this . ”
Shen Yao wanted to retort angrily, but upon hearing Xu Cheng’s “people beside me” comment, her tone immediately softened as her face blushed . “I’m not someone special to you, why would they target me? Could it be… you are worried about me?”
Xu Cheng coughed . “I just don’t want you to get dragged into this . These guys are real criminals that are willing to do anything, and as long as they can hurt me, they will lay their hands on you just because you are living with me . Although it won’t really affect me, since I was the one that stirred up the storm, I still don’t want anything to happen to you because of me . ”
Shen Yao then looked at Ran Jing . “Then why doesn’t she have to move out?”
Ran Jing said proudly, “I’m a police officer . If they come at me, then they are basically going against the entire police system . Just dealing with one officer is enough of a headache for them, they wouldn’t want to screw themselves even more by dragging me into this too . ”
“If that’s the case, then don’t worry about me,” Shen Yao snorted and replied, “I’m going to live wherever I want . Since me getting kidnapped won’t be enough to threaten you anyways, then you don’t need to mind where I’m living . ”
Xu Cheng rolled his eyes at her . “I’m afraid that if you die, then I can’t get my money back from the underground money house . ”
“You!” Shen Yao’s eyebrows immediately raised as she glared at Xu Cheng . Gritting her teeth, she shouted, “Xu Cheng, you donkey!”
Xu Cheng then looked at Ran Jing and said, “You have to move too . ”
Ran Jing’s eyes stared wide open as she asked, “Why? I’m not scared of those people looking for trouble . ”
Shen Yao: “He’s kicking us out, why are you still so thick-skinned? Humph! Ran Jing, let’s go . ”
Then, she threw the cushion she was hugging onto the sofa and went back to her room . Not long after, she came out with her suitcase and coat . She stood by the door and said, “You think I want to live here? We will move out right away!”
Seeing how Shen Yao was seriously angry, Ran Jing looked at Xu Cheng again . Xu Cheng gave her the look to leave first, Ran Jing read the unusual feeling from Xu Cheng’s eyes and immediately said, “Okay, Shen Yao, let’s go . ”
Before the two women even opened the door, Xu Cheng said to Ran Jing, “Don’t use the elevator . ”
Shen Yao was even more pissed . She immediately stared into Xu Cheng’s eyes and said, “You own the elevator too? I can’t use it just because you said I can’t? You know what floor we are on? I’m in high heels, you want me to take the stairs?”
Xu Cheng looked at Ran Jing and said, “In short, just don’t take the elevator . ”
Seeing how serious he was, Ran Jing nodded and left with Shen Yao .
Dragging her luggage, Shen Yao couldn’t be more pissed . “This bustard, he’s so ungrateful! I helped him so many times but he still has the heart of a stone! If anything, we are both so beautiful, yet he’s the one that feels like he was wronged to room with us! Humph! I’m so angry! I’ve never seen a man with a negative EQ like him! No wonder he’s still single!”
Ran Jing looked at her and teased, “Didn’t you prepare to be his girlfriend?”
“Humph! Originally I did, but now I definitely don’t want to anymore . Why are you still in the mood to tease me!”
Ran Jing laughed . She didn’t really take it to heart that Xu Cheng was kicking them out . “Let’s just go . ”
In fact, Shen Yao didn’t want to go, and she was putting on that whole act just for Xu Cheng . She thought Xu Cheng was going to regret what he said and ask her to stay, but that donkey actually locked the door behind them from the inside! Now Shen Yao was just fuming .
When she gritted her teeth and walked to the elevator, Ran Jing took the luggage from her hand and said, “Let’s take the stairs . ”
Shen Yao was basically steaming from the top of her head due to anger . “Why? Just because he owns the whole building? Holy crap, he says not to use it and you really are going to just listen to him?”
As she said that, she also saw that the elevator’s indicator light seemed to be off, which meant that the elevator was not in service at the moment!
Ran Jing suddenly got a bad feeling . She dragged Shen Yao and said, “Let’s hurry up and get out first . ”
