Chapter 163: The Fish That Slipped Through the Net (Part one)
On the next day, after Xu Cheng came out from the HQ’s HR department, he directly went to his office to pack up his stuff . All the members of Team 2 had just come back from the awards ceremony after getting their recognitions, and upon seeing Xu Cheng, they all gathered around in excitement . “Boss, why didn’t you go to the meeting?”
“I’m leaving,” Xu Cheng smiled and said . Then, he looked at them and continued, “In the future, you guys will be the pride of Team 2 . Work hard!”
The members all felt shocked . “Boss, what are you saying?”
“I already submitted my resignation,” Xu Cheng said with a smile . Unknowingly during these years, he really became a lot stronger and more confident, and now he truly entered the mental state where he would remain calm no matter what the situation was . He patted these guys on the shoulder and said, “Although I’m gone, don’t let me hear that any of you are not working hard . Make me proud . Although our team is smaller, now no one else will dare to look down on us, and all of this was because of our hard work and capabilities . So, keep up the good work and make me proud . ”
Upon saying that, he didn’t give Wu Gang and the others the chance to reply and directly walked past them out of the office .
The ten members were all more upset than ever . Originally, they came back all happy and stuff from the awards ceremony, and they thought that their boss didn’t go because the higher ups wanted to personally praise him . They completely didn’t expect to come back to see their boss leave Team 2…
Li Chao’s face sunk . “I remember the Wei Nation ambassador said something about giving pressure to the police force, that’s why the higher ups had no choice but to let our boss go!”
Another member also nodded . “I heard something about it too . I think Boss made the Wei Nation’s ambassador lose all of his face and that’s why they wanted to criticize Boss on the grounds of damaging their country’s reputation . ”
Wu Gang heard that and immediately cursed, “Fack that piece of shat, I’m going to go to prison and beat the shat out of that ambassador first and then talk!”
Li Chao grabbed him right away . “What’s the point of that? Let’s go, bros, let’s all go to the director and demand an explanation and let everyone know who’s the biggest hero in this case . They don’t have to promote us or raise our salary, but they definitely can’t treat our boss like this! Without him, where would we be at right now? What did all the people call us before? And what about now? Who still dares to talk down to us? And who was the one that made that happen?”
“Yes, let’s get an explanation!”
Then, the ten of them all walked towards the HQ director’s office, just in time to see the department director and the others, who had just finished their meeting at the HQ director’s office . They ran into them in the hall, and seeing how fierce they looked, the department director asked in curiosity, “What’s this? Are you about to eat someone?”
Wu Gang’s temper was a bit more straightforward, and he directly said, “Sir, let me just ask you, did our boss get transferred to another place to get promoted or did he get fired?”
The department director glared at them . “Why are you guys asking about that? That is the arrangement of the higher ups . You guys go back to your work, stop blocking the hallway . ”
Li Chao wasn’t happy as well . “Are the higher ups blind or something? How could they make such an arrangement? Did their hit their heads somewhere?”
The department director got angry right away . “You little [email protected] what did you say? Getting so full of yourself right after the awards ceremony?”
Wu Gang: “It was because we accepted the awards but our boss didn’t get anything, we aren’t convinced! If the higher ups wants to maintain their decision, then we will go up or down with our boss!”
“Yes, we will follow our boss!”

The HQ director obviously heard these people shouting in the hall . He came out with a hot cup of tea, glanced at them, and said, “This is your boss’s decision, anyone with half a brain would know that no one would dare to claim his contributions to this case in his place . It was him that wanted to leave . You guys also know that he came from the military, and now he wants to go back . ”
Wu Gang: “Director, how could you let our Boss not continue to do this job? I think he is a natural-born criminal investigation officer!”
Li Chao: “Yes, after being in the business for so long, I’m not convinced with anyone but him! Director, you don’t know how powerful our boss is . In the past few days, we followed exactly what he said, and he got everything right . If he told us to check the sofa, then there would definitely be something there . If he told us to stop a car, then there would be black money hidden in it . He had always been able to see right through to the point, and he was willing to teach us whenever we asked . He taught us how to start looking at a problem from all aspects, and I benefited a lot from the insights he imparted to us!”
The others also chimed in, “Director, after being a criminal police officer for so long, there really isn’t another captain that could make us this confident . It felt like as long as we had our cap, the case would be solved for sure . Ever since he came here, he didn’t get anything wrong . No matter what he told us to do, we never asked questions and just did it, and then somehow the case just got solved . Director, you should also know how tough the four Gates’ cases were . Initially, no one had hope in us, and everyone wanted to push the hardest cases to us . But now, I want to say, all the other captains put together will still be weaker than our captain! Really, if our captain were to leave, it will be a huge loss to the police force!”
The director didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry . “You think I can’t see what you guys can see? I even called him my big brother and he still insisted on going, so what can I do? It’s fine, if you really want what’s best for your captain, then don’t dwell on it anymore . Wish him luck on the path he chose . All of you go back now, don’t let the other teams hear what you guys just said or they will get angry and create more trouble . ” As he said this, he waved his hand . Then, Li Chao and the others unwillingly left the office’s corridor .
Everyone in the police HQ knew Xu Cheng was leaving, and he wasn’t transferring but leaving for real . After hearing this news, Ran Jing couldn’t understand Xu Cheng even more . She didn’t even wait until her shift was over before running out to try and question him .
After not being able to find him, she called Xu Cheng, and the moment the call connected, she began bombarding him with questions, “Xu Cheng, what’s the meaning of this? Why did you just quit all of a sudden? Don’t you know the general team captain’s position would soon be yours? Did you hit your head somewhere?”
In the call, Xu Cheng bitterly laughed . “Ran Jing, I’ve never thought of embarking on a political career since the beginning . Besides, I’m doing you a big favor so you can become the general team captain in the future . Also, if I got promoted and you still talk back to me in front of all of my subordinates, then I’m going to lose my face . So, I might as well quit . ”
Ran Jing: “Just keep on boasting . Where are you right now?”
Xu Cheng: “I still have something to take care of . I will call you when I’m done . Okay, I’m hanging up now . ”
Then, Xu Cheng hung up the call and sat on the sofa inside his condo . He was waiting for the uninvited guest, and it was none other than the fish that slipped through the net – Neil!
Xu Cheng always remembered what he said before . Since he signed a life and death contract with Cunye, and as a bodyguard, he would definitely do something since his master was in prison now .
Indeed, not long after, the door was kicked open by Neil . Seeing Xu Cheng just sitting there and looking at him, he was shocked for a brief moment . Then, he aimed his gun at Xu Cheng and said, “Looks like you didn’t listen to my warning . ”
Xu Cheng laughed and said, “I did, and that’s why I’m waiting for your arrival . ”
