Chapter 140: As Your Senior, I Can Give You A Few Pointers (Part two)
Then, the two of them followed Shen Yao down the stairs. It was still early so it wouldn’t be polite if they didn’t talk with the head of the household, Shen Wansan. Shen Yao came downstairs and introduced the new arrival to her dad, “Dad, this is also my good friend, Ran Jing. She works at the police HQ.”
“We got to talk earlier.” Shen Wansan was still quite friendly to Ran Jing, since she was a friend of the same gender as Shen Yao and was very accomplished. Besides, Ran Jing was also very polite.
However, Shen Wansan didn’t look too friendly, or was he even willing to look at him, when he saw Xu Cheng at his house.
“Have a seat, Xu Cheng. Don’t mind my dad.” Shen Yao dragged Xu Cheng down to sit on the sofa.
Just then, Shen Wansan pretended to lift up the tea cup to take a sip, as he passed a secret look to his driver.
After receiving the signal, the driver coughed, and then he casually asked, “Mr. Xu Cheng, are you from the military?”
Xu Cheng looked at the driver and nodded. “Yeah, and speaking of it, you are technically my senior.”
The driver narrowed his eyes. “How did you know I also came from the military?”
Xu Cheng smiled. “Your posture when standing. Only soldiers have that kind of strict self-discipline, and you being able to stick to that iron-like discipline means you are not from a simple unit.”
Shen Wansan and his driver exchanged a look. They had to admit, Xu Cheng was quite the keen observer.
The driver laughed and said, “I am indeed from the military, but I can’t say I’m from a high ranking unit. But you, you definitely have a bright future ahead of you. However, I’m quite curious, with your power and age, you shouldn’t be retiring at this time. Why did you decide to leave the military and take a job here?”
Xu Cheng bitterly smiled. “I didn’t retire, but something happened so I’m temporarily taking a few months off to work here as a police officer. I will still be going back in the future.”
The driver sighed, “I don’t know how the military regions are doing nowadays since I retired long ago. I don’t know if the new recruits have been improving every year or getting worse and worse. But I heard that last year at the G20 Meeting’s Special Forces Competition, our country fell behind again. I’m quite worried, the new recruits seemed to be quite spoiled.”
Shen Wansan coughed and said, “Isn’t there a new recruit right before you? Seeing how Xu Cheng could see through Wen Zhao’s identity, it means he’s not a simple character too. Also, we heard that you also took down North Gate’s boss, and I actually am curious to see your abilities. Truth be told, ever since I recruited my driver, who’s also my bodyguard, I’ve never really seen his true power before. Since I’m usually very low key and don’t make enemies often, I naturally have less trouble. It’s a shame that my bodyguard has had too few opportunities to hone his abilities.”
Upon hearing this, the clever Shen Yao immediately snorted and interrupted, “Dad, what are you planning to do again?”
Ran Jing laughed and looked at Xu Cheng oddly. Her expression seemed to be saying, “Look, he’s looking for trouble now.”
Xu Cheng naturally understood the message in Ran Jing’s look. He faintly smiled. “I got lucky in the fight against Gate Master Yan. You are a senior brother to me, it wouldn’t be respectful if I fight you.”
Wen Zhao laughed. “We are real men, let’s be more real. According to the rules in the military, you are down to spar for a few rounds, right? I heard that you recently offended West Gate as well, and always hiding here from trouble can’t be the long-term solution. As your senior from the military, maybe I can give you a few pointers.”
