Chapter 130: Cooperation (Part one)
Hearing Xu Cheng’s words, Chang Qing’s face changed right away. “You had been following me?”
Xu Cheng said, “You are indeed the head of the four kings of West Gate. Despite your old age, your brain is still alright. No wonder West Gate reached this level of scale, you four sure contributed a lot.”
Chang Qing’s eyes narrowed. “You found us four?”
Xu Cheng: “Aren’t the other three arrested already? With that cargo ship captain’s testimony, those people’s charges are inescapable. But as for you, do you think you are guilty?”
Chang Qing snorted, “Guilty of what?”
Xu Cheng smiled. “Azure Dragon, Vermilion Bird, Black Tortoise, and White Tiger. You four became sworn brothers that year and all got a tattoo to show your faith towards the bond. But, I noticed that among the four, the Black Tortoise tattoo was missing. Mr. Chang, can you explain why that is to me?”
Chang Qing’s face changed dramatically, and he stared at Xu Cheng in shock. If he had a gun right now, he would kill Xu Cheng right away for sure! But, he had nothing.
After a long time, Chang Qing finally came to his senses. Then, he looked at Xu Cheng with hate. “Initially, I thought you were just someone with all muscles and no brain, someone that were dumb enough to first offend North Gate and then West Gate. Now that I think about it, you really are a piece of work!”
Not knowing if it was a compliment or something else, Xu Cheng didn’t reject the comment. He just laughed. “Back in the military, a soldier must catch a big fish to advance. The four Gates had been a pain in the azz of the government officials for years, and it would’ve been fine if you guys actually washed your hands clean and transitioned to only legal businesses. You have nothing but yourself to blame.”
Chang Qing snorted, “The rules are dead, but the people are alive. With the same logic, the laws are dead, and it all depends on how you work it. As for you, I just regret not killing you earlier!”
“You talk like you didn’t try to kill me. The assassin group you sent earlier is still having tea at the police station. You guys sure have guts, even daring to assassinate officers,” Xu Cheng replied.
“Not to mention a little officer, no matter how high your level is, you will get hurt if you get in someone’s way!” Chang Qing replied.
Xu Cheng sighed. “So, it’s not enough to just seize your businesses when dealing with guys like you. We must eradicate the roots too, or you guys will grow back just like weeds!”
Chang Qing looked at him with disdain. “I have to admit little brat, you got lucky and took down North Gate, and now you are trying to take down West Gate as well. But, let me tell you, even if you take down all four Gates, you won’t eradicate the dark side of human hearts. With North Gate and our West Gate as precedents, you think East and South Gate wouldn’t be on alert? The moment they decide to focus on dealing with a little team captain like you, you won’t even know how you died!”
Xu Cheng suddenly began laughing.
Chang Qing frowned. “What are you laughing at?”
