Chapter 99: Team 2 Will Follow Up on West Gate’s Case (Part one)
Xu Cheng’s first meeting with the Team 2 members was quite unpleasant, but that also set up his tough boss image .
After finishing their first conversation, Xu Cheng directly left the office . “Now, let’s all go to the cafeteria to eat . ”
He left the office first, and the others all looked at each other .
Wu Gang looked at Xu Cheng’s disappearing image and said to the others, “Let’s just wait and see . If it’s another guy that’s all tough talk but no real skill, then let’s not get into the water with him, or we will drown ourselves . ”
The ten of them followed Xu Cheng to the cafeteria . It was just an restaurant that was contracted by the police for them to enjoy their meals at discounted prices . It was also the place Xu Cheng and Ran Jing first visited .
When he walked in, the other teams and departments’ officers began looking at him and gossiping .
“It’s him, the guy that fought Gate Master Yan . ”
“Didn’t they say he got stabbed? He looks really fine to me . ”
“Would you guys say that he actually won the fight?”
“Of course . Gate Master Yan sneaked attacked him with a dagger after the match ended . Strictly speaking, Xu Cheng was the winner . ”
“I also heard that this guy’s rumored to be Captain Ran’s boyfriend?” The gossipy female officers immediately got excited .
“This morning when he was reporting to duty, he was indeed brought in by Captain Ran . I also remember that a few weeks ago when he was still a patrol officer, Captain Ran also brought him here for dinner before . ”
“Wasn’t Li Dazhuang always chasing after Ran Jing? Is he out now?”
“I guess so . Li Dazhuang is only tough on the outside anyways . ”
In the middle of his meal, Li Dazhuang couldn’t tolerate the gossip anymore . He directly stood up and slammed the desk, and it was pretty loud and the chatty cafeteria immediately became silenced .
Li Dazhuang’s colleagues tugged on his clothes and whispered, “What are you doing?”
Li Dazhuang gritted his teeth as he turned around and looked at Xu Cheng . Then, he directly walked up to Xu Cheng’s face and said word for word, “I can’t interfere in the past, but now, since you are here, you should stay away from Ran Jing . Don’t let others talk behind your back and say you climbed in here because Captain Ran pulled some strings . ”
“Anyone with a brain would know that I relied on my own two hands to get here,” Xu Cheng retorted, “Besides, if you are not convinced, we can just follow your rules and have another fight . We can just cut the talk and see each other in the arena . ”
As he talked, he directly walked past Li Dazhuang and went to get some food . Li Dazhuang couldn’t beat Xu Cheng, but of course, he could lay his hands on Xu Cheng’s subordinates . He just stuck his leg out and tripped Wu Gang .
Li Chao was about to burst right away and demand why, but Wu Gang immediately pulled him back .
Wu Gang only stood up, patted the dust off his pants and was about to just leave . But, his way was blocked by Xu Cheng .
Xu Cheng turned to Li Dazhuang and sneered . “I guess you are the pathetic type that only bullies the nice guys and are afraid of people tougher than you . If you have a grudge, you can directly come and look for me . Don’t make things difficult for my guys . ”
Li Dazhuang said in an odd tone that was irritating to listen to, “It wasn’t on purpose . ”
Xu Cheng: “Then just apologize to him . ”
Li Dazhuang looked at Wu Gang, and with a provocative look, he asked him, “Do you need my apology?”
Li Dazhuan held a high rank in the HQ, and he was also a part-time instructor that had a good relationship with the new recruits . In addition, he was also the champion of the annual special police competition, being very experienced in the operation of various guns and actual combat . So, he held a high level of prestige at this HQ .

Wu Gang was just going to say “it’s fine”, but who would have thought that Xu Cheng would walk forward into Li Dazhuang’s face and say to him with no room for negotiation, “I’m the one telling you to apologize to him . ”
The colleagues beside Li Dazhuang felt like these words were so familiar .
Wait a second, wasn’t this basically the scene where Li Dazhuang wanted to force Xu Cheng to apologize to Ran Jing, and then Xu Cheng asked Ran Jing if she needed his apology, and Li Dazhuang still tried to make him apologize?
It was just that, their roles seemed to have changed .
Li Dazhuang lifted his eyebrows and looked at Xu Cheng . “Who are you? Are you representing him? You should ask him if he’s letting you in the first place . ”
“I’m his boss,” Xu Cheng narrowed his eyes and said to Li Dazhuang, “We are a team, so remember, you offending him is offending me . This should be a harmonious society here, there’s no need to make it unpleasant for everyone . ”
Then, Xu Cheng patted Wu Gang on the shoulder, and then he headed towards the place that was handing out food .
The way he protected his subordinates shocked everyone around, and it also gave Li Chao and the rest of Team 2 a strange and subtle feeling .
How should they put it?
This new team captain was pretty domineering!
On the second floor on the fenced deck seats, an old policeman was leaning by the fence and looking at the scene below . He curiously asked, “This guy looks quite fresh, is he new?”
His colleague eating beside him nodded . “That’s the guy that killed Gate Master Yan . ”
The policeman lifted his brows . “I think he won’t have a good time if he’s this reckless and impulsive . ”
The guy eating also smiled . “Yeah, newcomers should follow the rules after they get to a new area . Him just suddenly taking down North Gate broke many teams’ plans . He basically snatched the bone that the other teams had been eyeing for years . I heard that when he was still a patrol officer, he also offended a bunch of young masters . The police force’s connection with the business world became a little stiff and awkward after that, so there are still a lot of people that don’t like him . ”
The police officer by the fence sneered . “Let’s bet on whether he’s going to get dragged down by Team 2, or he will bring great change to Team 2 . ”
The guy eating immediately agreed . “Sure, and I heard a rumor that some people want to make things difficult for the guy . ”
“Oh? Tell me . ”
“It’s temporarily confidential, but it will be revealed later today at the department meeting . ”
After eating, Xu Cheng was told by other officers in the hall to go to a department meeting .
When he came to the meeting room, he saw Ran Jing sitting inside and faintly smiling at him . “I saw you bringing your team to lunch today, looks like you are doing pretty well . ”
Xu Cheng faintly smiled . “Just like in the army, you just need to overawe their hearts first . ”
During the two’s conversation, the other team captains arrived one after another . Besides Ran Jing, all the other captains were males, and then Ran Jing shot Xu Cheng a prideful smile .
When the deputy department director came with his stack of documents, he first introduced Xu Cheng to everyone .
“This is Xu Cheng who will be in charge of Team 2 from now on . We will all be working together from now on . “
Other than Ran Jing, Xu Cheng shook hands with the other eight captains . For the first encounter, everyone was pretty nice and greeted Xu Cheng with smiles .
After that, the director said very straightforwardly, “So today, I will mention a few points . Ran Jing, temporarily put your team on hold for the West Gate case, and fully focus on the East Gate’s port’s smuggling case . ”
Originally in a good mood, Ran Jing’s face suddenly changed as she looked up at the supervisor, “Deputy Department Director, whether it’s West Gate or East Gate, I’ve been on those cases for more than six months now . Wouldn’t it be counterproductive to suddenly drop it?”
The higher-up’s face didn’t change as he said, “Because of what happened to North Gate, the other three Gates are particularly vigilant, so it will be a lot harder for you to reach a breakthrough when splitting your resources on both cases . So, I want to get a new group to get on the West Gate case . ”
Ran Jing was a bit unhappy, but after all, the deputy department director was her higher up, so she unwillingly asked, “Which group do you want to follow this case?”
Deputy Director: “How about this, let Team 2’s Captain Xu take over for now . ”
Ran Jing: “No! Sir, his identity is still too sensitive right now . At this time, if he were to be on any case related to the three Gates, those people may be setting traps up to get rid of him . You must remember he was the one that plucked up North Gate by himself, so right now the other three Gates are probably wishing for him to walk right into their traps!”
Before, Ran Jing didn’t want Xu Cheng to touch the three Gates’ cases because of this reason . Right now, all three Gates were probably hoping for Xu Cheng to go after them again so they could set him up or toy with him .
