Chapter 123: You Scared the Crap Out of Me (Part one)
Just when Xu Cheng was prepared to talk about the next step, their office door was pushed open. It was Li Dazhuang. That guy furiously came to Xu Cheng, deepened his voice, and demanded from Xu Cheng in an interrogative manner, “Give me an explanation.”
Xu Cheng lifted his eyebrows and looked at him from the corner of his eyes. “What explanation?”
“Everything was going well and for the joint operation, us special police unit was supposed to cooperate with you, but why did you suddenly choose to cooperate with other criminal investigation units and not notify us?” Li Dazhuang asked angrily.
Xu Cheng replied, “I thought you guys would be pretty busy and tired after seizing one big casino, so I got someone else to assist me with the port operation.”
Li Dazhuang narrowed his eyes. “Xu Cheng, let me tell you, we may have personal grudges and you can come straight for just me, but you said that we would be cooperating together for this mission, yet now you are basically giving the glory to another unit. I won’t let this go if you can’t give me a decent explanation today. I’m not doing this for me, but our entire special police force department.”
Xu Cheng looked at him and said in a deep voice, “You don’t have to make yourself sound so great and selfless, what kind of explanation do you want? Can you get out first? This is my office. If you want to argue then go and argue outside. If you want to cause trouble here, then maybe we can go talk at the Ministry of Justice?”
On the side, the ten Team 2 members that had just pledged their support towards Xu Cheng were also quite unsatisfied with the way their boss was being treated, so they all surrounded Li Dazhuang. “What do you want to do?”
Li Dazhuang directly lifted his eyebrows and looked at the other ten officers. “You are all irrelevant, get out of my face.”
“You came to Team 2’s office to stir sh*t up, and you are still saying that we are irrelevant?” Li Chao and the others were all furious, how could this guy dare to throw a tantrum on their territory?
Outside the door, Li Dazhuang’s subordinates, who originally didn’t want to follow him in to interrogate Xu Cheng, immediately rushed in as well upon seeing how Team 2 was ganging up on their boss. “What do you all think you are doing!”
Xu Cheng’s face was grim. He just let both sides shout and push each other around, as he coldly glanced at Li Dazhuang and said, “If you want to fight, then let’s go right now. If anyone wants to fight me, just come out. Don’t be all talk.”
Just as he said that, the 5 guys on Li Dazhuang’s side directly shut up.
Li Dazhuang snorted, “In short, you have to give us an explanation for going around our department for reinforcement.”
“What’s all the fuss about?” At that moment, the director of the Criminal Investigation Department appeared, and seeing how both sides were in a standoff, he loudly shouted, “You think you are gangsters?”
Both sides immediately stood aside. The department director walked in, looked at Li Dazhuang and his men and asked, “Li Dazhuang, what are you doing in Team 2’s office?”
Li Dazhuang said, appearing quite displeased, “Sir, I just want to ask Captain Xu about why they cooperated with the criminal police unit instead of the special police force for this port operation. If the reason was because of the personal grudge between me and him, then I think Captain Xu is being unprofessional and needs to be punished.”
The director took a deep look at Li Dazhuang and said, “Oh? What kind of punishment do you think he should get? The whole operation was directed by him, and it was extremely successful. Although there are still suspects that haven’t been captured, the amount of cash seized is unbelievable. Do you know what level of accomplishment this is?”
Li Dazhuang was still not willing to give up. “I know, but during the operation, we from the special force unit didn’t feel that we were respected, even though I’m personally okay with it.”
The director sneered, “I know that not calling you guys up for the operation probably felt like the credit that was supposed to be yours got handed to someone else. It’s natural to feel angry about it, but I’m just curious, your department director didn’t even jump out yet, so why are you so anxious to speak up?”
