Chapter 101: Oh, It’s Our Boss’s Lady! (Part two)
Xu Cheng didn’t deny it. “Right, we form a habit in the military, that even if the enemy is lying in a pool of blood, we would always stab or shoot them a few more times to make sure that they are dead. Otherwise, any careless mistakes that one makes can bring trouble to the team. At the same time, if we are going to investigate, then we will do a comprehensive job, or the potential danger could be devastating.”
Shen Yao: “I really respect your professional ethics, but Xu Cheng, no one is a saint. As your friends, we just hope you don’t put your life at risk. For sensitive cases like money laundering, it’s best if you don’t try to investigate this abyss.”
Ran Jing: “Don’t worry, he’s a boss without an army now, he won’t be able to pull anything off.”
Xu Cheng laughed and said, “Who told you that?”
Then, he nonchalantly shouted towards his surroundings, “Wu Gang, Li Chao, when are you guys going to hide until?”
Under the seaside breeze, Wu Gang and the others walked out from the dark. They all awkwardly looked at each other before finally walking to Xu Cheng’s table. No more no less, just 10 of them.
Xu Cheng pointed at the 10 bottles left on the table and said, “I knew you guys would come so I ordered these for you already. If you made up your mind, then let’s drink. Tomorrow, we will officially dive into the West Gate case.”
The ten of them were quite surprised. After a close count, there were 10 beers on the table, no more no less, unopened. They were all super curious and shocked as to how Xu Cheng knew they were around.
Shen Yao rolled her eye at Xu Cheng. “I thought you were going to drink yourself drunk.”
Xu Cheng smiled. “No, as the newly appointed boss, its obvious that I need to have a drink with my new brothers, right?”
Li Chao and Wu Gang exchanged a look, and they picked up the beer bottles and passed them to the other members of Team 2. Then, everyone opened the bottle with their teeth and said at the same time, “Boss, we will follow you from now on!”
Xu Cheng patted Wu Gang and the others on the shoulder. “Cheers, let’s drink!”
Then, the 11 men’s bottles clanked into each other and they downed the whole bottle. After they were done, the 10 guys all looked towards Xu Cheng, and the latter smiled and said, “Have a seat, let’s talk about work assignment now.”
Li Chao paused for a moment. “Now?”
Xu Cheng nodded, “You think we can talk in the office? So many people are laughing and rooting for us to fail. Don’t you think if we talk in the office, the content will leak and be bad for our plan?”
Wu Gang suddenly came to a realization. Holy crap, this guy was indeed one with a sophisticated mind. They realized that they had underestimated their new boss earlier, and it seemed like this new captain of theirs was not only powerful in combat, but his brain was fast enough as well.
But, there still seemed to be two other women at the table.
Li Chao looked at Xu Cheng, as if he didn’t know how to word his thoughts. “Then… what about them?”
Xu Cheng replied nonchalantly, “You can think of them as a beautiful background.”
Right after his voice faded, Shen Yao’s high heel came right for him. She gritted her teeth and said, “I’m giving you enough face in front of your buddies. Just wait and see when you get home.”
That sentence immediately triggered some thoughts in Li Chao and the others, feeling that only Xu Cheng’s woman would say something so “thought-provoking”.
“Oh, so she’s our boss’s lady, I’m sorry for being disrespectful!” Wu Gang and the others immediately came around her and began pouring drinks for her.
