Chapter 135: Incoming Revenge (Part one)
Boss Chen: “That’s right. I mean, the four Gates can live or die, but we will definitely not end in this humiliating way and make this police tiger a hero. He must die! I definitely won’t let our four Gates become the background of some character’s story when people talk about it, especially when the guy’s just a rookie! I don’t care where he came from or what he used to do, but since he came to Shangcheng, he will have to play by our rules. North and West Gate may be cowards, but I will let everyone know that the police tiger is nothing but a kitty in front of me!”
Hetian looked at him, a bit surprised, and asked, “If you also want to kill him, why not get South Gate involved into this too?”
“South Gate’s in the food and retail business, and plus the nightclubs or spa places, they took the shortcut of sucking up to the officials in order for their businesses to run smoothly. Right now, the one party they shouldn’t offend the most is the government, so they are obviously afraid of getting into trouble. Their sharp spirit had long since been worn down, of course we won’t be able to rely on them. But that’s fine, that just means there’s one less to share the cake. Other people might be scared, but as the head of the four Gates, East Gate isn’t!”
In the evening, Xu Cheng made a big sneeze the moment he got home.
Shen Yao who had been watching a romance TV show saw him and asked, “Caught a cold?”
Xu Cheng rubbed his nose and said, “Nope, someone probably cursed me behind my back.”
Ran Jing walked in from the balcony in her tight blue tank top. She flicked her hair and interjected, “You took down two Gates in Shangcheng, it would be abnormal if no one was cursing you behind your back.”
Speaking of what Xu Cheng had been doing lately, Shen Yao was curious but also concerned as she asked, “You are not scared that they will feel too anxious about being forced into a corner and try to kill you?”
Xu Cheng smiled and replied, “Didn’t they already try? You are saying it as if the people that came to the hospital to assassinate me wasn’t sent by them.”
Just then, Shen Yao remembered that when Xu Cheng was hospitalized, there were indeed some assassins that came in and tried to kill him. She actually forgot, and then she said, “Tsk tsk, is your profession always so dangerous?”
Ran Jing laughed and said, “Not necessarily. It depending on the kind of merits you seek. Xu Cheng has a big appetite and went after the four Gates right after getting hired. Isn’t that the equivalent of walking on knives? Look at how chill we have it, we just deal with little shrimps, and they are the ones that are scared of us. But the four Gates are different; they have claws, and they can be very fierce if you touch their cake.”
“I killed one Gate, and left another Gate half dead in prison, can you tell me if I still have a way out?” Xu Cheng said as he took off his jacket and headed to the washroom to wash his face. However, at that moment, the lights in the entire unit suddenly went off and flashed back on. It seemed like the power breaker jumped, but the lights did immediately come back up.
Having lived here for so long, Xu Cheng was very familiar with the property management side of this building. Something like this had never happened before, and his intuition was telling him that something was off.
Immediately, he closed his eyes, and when he opened them again, his penetrating vision was activated. He directly began scanning the entire building, specifically looking for the power room. Very quickly, he spotted a few sketchy people doing something to the elevator. Although they were in technician overalls, Xu Cheng was sure that they were not doing maintenance to the elevator.
Also, in the power room, the security guard seemed to have been knocked unconscious. At the underground parking lot, there was also a guy checking out Xu Cheng’s car and confirming in a call that Xu Cheng should be upstairs.
Xu Cheng quickly wiped his face dry, came out from the bathroom, and said, “Shen Yao, for your safety, I still think you should move out.”
“Why?” Shen Yao wasn’t happy.
