Chapter 139: It’s That Xu Cheng (Part one)
Ran Jing followed the address Shen Yao gave her over the phone and found the Shen Family Villa . The maid asked for her name and then opened the door . When Ran Jing drove the car in, he saw how beautiful and luxurious the villa was . She couldn’t help but comment, “Tsk tsk, why would she leave this rich heiress life behind to experience the feeling of flying . ”
After she went in, she saw Shen Wansan sitting on the sofa in the living room . Although Xu Cheng didn’t know Shen Wansan, Ran Jing could recognize a big character like him . She immediately walked over and greeted, “Hello, President Shen . ”
“Shen Yao’s friend . ” Ran Jing passed over her business card .
After seeing Ran Jing’s job title, Shen Wansan’s eyes immediately lit up with a hint of joy . It seemed like his baby daughter didn’t surround herself with stuck-up second-gen rich heirs; she actually was friends with a professional criminal-investigation unit captain . He was a bit surprised .
“Since you are Yaoyao’s friend, just call me Uncle Shen from now on . You have no problem with me calling you Little Jing, right?” Shen Wansan smiled and said . (TL Note: adding little in front of first name is a common way to address juniors)
“No problem, my parents also call me that,” Ran Jing politely replied .
Shen Wansan nodded, and then he suspiciously looked at her and asked, “Little Jing, then do you know that Xu Cheng?”
“Yeah . ” Ran Jing nodded .
“Does he like my Yaoyao or something? Little Jing, don’t blame Uncle Shen for having a big mouth, but as a father, I only have one baby daughter, and I always worry that there might be unscrupulous men around Yaoyao that are deceiving her feelings . ”
Ran Jing chuckled . “Uncle Shen, I can’t tell if Xu Cheng likes Yaoyao or not, but Yaoyao does like Xu Cheng . Oh right, Yaoyao’s no simple girl too . She probably inherited from you, she’s a lot slyer than you think, like a little fox”
“Who are you calling a fox, how can you say such a thing behind my back?” Just then, Shen Yao appeared by the stairs . She was worried that her dad would trouble her friend with questions again so she had been waiting . “Hurry, you can come up . ”
“Uncle Shen, then I will go up first . ” Ran Jing immediately said to Shen Wansan and left, leaving Shen Wansan sitting there, getting more anxious than ever .
My daughter likes that guy?
That guy’s not handsome, and he seems to be pretty arrogant too . Just what about him attracted the attention of my daughter?
Just when he was frowning and worrying, his driver, who was also his bodyguard, came in with a stack of documents and said, “Boss, I didn’t have to do too much research to find this . You probably heard of the unlucky four Gates recently, right?”
Shen Wansan nodded, frowning as he said, “This guy’s a thug?”
Driver: “Not at all . ”
Shen Wansan looked at his driver from the corner of his eyes . “Can you facking just say what you have to say directly? Are you the boss or am I the boss? Just let it all out, why fart but hold half of it in? What are you saving it for?”
The driver awkwardly laughed . “He’s not a thug, but the mortal nemesis of a thug . Just like Miss Ran Jing earlier, he’s a cop . ”
“Cop?” Shen Wansan frowned again . “What’s his title? What does he do? How’s his reputation? Don’t tell me he’s a little cop that wants to use my name to climb the ranks . ”
“His position is the Captain of Team 2 in the Criminal Investigation Unit . It’s not too high in the overall police system, so in comparison to Miss Shen, he is a reacher . Just a month ago, he was still just a patrol officer,” the driver said .
Chapter 139: It’s That Xu Cheng (Part two)
Shen Wansan slapped the desk, and his face had “I knew it!” written all over . “This guy wants to use my daughter to help him advance his career? Shameless!”
The driver was also no ordinary driver . To be able to stay as Shen Wansan’s bodyguard for so many years, he definitely had some abilities . He was a retired special forces operative, so his view and opinion were also valuable to take into consideration .
“Boss, I think you might be wrong about him . ”
“Wrong?” Shen Wansan raised his head, looked at his bodyguard, and said, “What do you mean?”
The driver said, “The written information I received was limited, but what I heard was quite unbelievable . ”
Shen Wansan’s whole face sunk again . “Are you holding it in again? Hurry up and spill it all in one go . ”
The driver awkwardly coughed and continued, “A month ago, he reported to duty as a patrol officer, but he was able to get promoted to the HQ within 2 weeks and directly reported as Team 2’s captain . Boss, you aren’t familiar with the police ranking system so you obviously don’t know how hard it is to get promoted . Not to mention the difficulty of moving up from patrol officer to criminal police officer, or even to be able to become the captain right away . It’s basically impossible unless you have years of experience . But, Xu Cheng did it . He either has a strong background, or he was extremely skilled in something . I initially thought he climbed up due to the former reason, but afterwards, I heard from someone in that police circle that it was the latter . Boss, do you still remember half a month ago when North Gate was provoked, and in the end, Gate Master Yan personally issued a death match invitation to someone?”
Shen Wansan nodded . “Yeah, I heard Gate Master Yan died, North Gate collapsed, and the city replanned and deployed the new development plans for the old area North Gate had been hogging . Most of the credit goes to the cop that beat Gate Master Yan . ”
Driver: “Yes, and the guy that killed Gate Master Yan was given the title of Tiger of the Police Force . That guy’s Xu Cheng!”
Shen Wansan’s body immediately shivered . “You sure?”
The driver nodded . “I can be sure . He took down North Gate, so he was able to directly jump to team captain of the criminal investigation department . ”
Shen Wansan immediately felt that he was too quick to judge and too rude to Xu Cheng earlier, and he immediately coughed and snorted, “He probably just got lucky . I think being a team captain at the criminal investigation department is going to be the peak of his career . ”
The driver bitterly laughed . “I’m afraid not . ”
Shen Wansan narrowed his eyes .
The driver continued . “People might think Xu Cheng got lucky on the North Gate case, but others indeed witnessed his fighting abilities . Plus how West Gate was taken down after being caught laundering money, Xu Cheng also demonstrated to everyone his intellectual side . ”
Shen Wansan: “What does West Gate’s case have to do with him?”
“Just two weeks ago, the money-laundering investigation was officially handed to Team 2, and after just one week, against a target that Team 5 couldn’t make any breakthroughs in after almost half a year, Xu Cheng directly led Team 2 and chewed West Gate up into its current dying state . Now, the four leaders of West Gate were arrested, over 3 billion dollars in cash of black money was seized, and the largest casino under West Gate was also seized . Almost all of the core members of West Gate are now sipping tea at the police station from the surprise raids, Boss, and he only used one week!”
Then, the driver looked at Shen Wansan oddly and said, “Then it’s not hard to guess why Xu Cheng came here . He’s probably trying to avoid trouble and backlash, since West Gate’s case did involve a lot of other forces . ”
Shen Wansan just sat there, a bit blank, his mouth feeling a bit dry . “Are you sure the Xu Cheng you are talking about is the Xu Cheng in my house right now?”
The driver nodded . “I can confirm that’s the Xu Cheng because of Ran Jing . Those two are colleagues . ”
