Chapter 109: I Just Despise You (Part one)
After walking out, Xu Cheng thought for a second and then said to the command center, “Actually, on an important day like this, I would feel bad if I don’t get myself into some action too just to piss them off a bit. I need to make an appearance so they direct all of their attention at me instead of Shen Yao.”
“Captain Xu, are you going to be alright?” the people at the command center asked with concern.
“No worries, I will be out soon.” Xu Cheng smiled. He gave his gun and earpiece all to the undercover police officer at the periphery, and then he went into the casino.
But at the door, the staff of West Gate’s casino still recognized him. “Excuse me, Officer Xu, you cannot come in.
“Why?” Xu Cheng frowned. “If there’s no illegal business going on inside, why can’t I go in? Setting my career aside, I’m also just a normal customer. Can’t you let me have some fun too? Is it legal for you guys to deny me access like this?”
“Let him come in,” at this moment, the Master Qin that Xu Cheng had beaten up before came over and spoke.
Xu Cheng looked at him and said with a big smile, “You got discharged?”
Master Qin sneered at him and snorted, “You are the first one with the balls to do that to me. You might not know what you are getting yourself into just yet, including the little investigation you are doing. Out of respect for you, I think I should still remind you, don’t play with fire.”
Xu Cheng’s face didn’t change at all at the threat. “I’m just playing with fire on purpose, or how else will I burn you guys all to death? Did my fire get to your eyebrows already and now you guys are worried?”
“We are a legitimate casino, Officer Xu. What are you doing here?”
Xu Cheng laughed. “Don’t suddenly use that attitude with me, I’m still not very used to it. Just treat me like when I was still a patrol officer.”
Master Qin: “How could I dare? You are the man that single-handedly apprehended North Gate, don’t you know? Now, there are a lot of people that put you on a high pedestal.”
Then, he moved closer to Xu Cheng and whispered into his right ear, word for word, “But let me warn you, the higher you are, the more painful the fall. You should look after yourself.”
Xu Cheng wasn’t scared at all. “I’m already here today. Also, whether you are doing illegal or legal stuff is not based on your description but the findings of our investigation. If you are not trying to hide anything, then why are you scared of letting me come in?”
“Who said you are not allowed to come in?” Master Qin opened his arms. “Help yourself.”
Xu Cheng nodded, and he directly bumped away Master Qin’s arm as he walked into the casino. The place was filled with people, and it was extremely lively.
“Last time, I saw he was very good at gambling. Keep an eye on him. Also, get a few pros to kill his ego a bit,” Master Qin whispered to his assistant.
His assistant nodded and then left.
Shen Yao saw Xu Cheng come in as well, so she pretended to go to the wine station beside him for a glass, and then she asked, “Why are you here too?”
“Just to make sure you are all good to go. I’m just here to draw some aggro, and then I’m heading out. Just make sure you can always hear me from your earpiece when I get out.”
Shen Yao frowned and asked, “What happened back there at the gate?”
Xu Cheng directly replied, “Our guy probably got exposed.”
Shen Yao: “Is he okay?”
Xu Cheng: “He’s at the hospital. He’s conscious now, but it’s obvious that the entirety of West Gate’s on high alert right now.”
