Chapter 156: Getting Followed (Part two)
After Xu Cheng came downstairs, he heard Li Chao and Wu Gang nervously asking, “Boss, is this guy related to the underground money house?”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Yes, but there’s no direct evidence to arrest him right now.”
“Should Wu Gang and I follow him?” Li Chao asked.
“No, you guys don’t bother with this guy,” Xu Cheng said.
With Neil by his side, Li Chao and Wu Gang would be in danger if they really pushed it and followed Cunye closely. Besides, how would two police officers play the stalking game with a special-forces level mercenary?
When Xu Cheng glanced at Neil earlier, he saw a gun by his waist. Thus, they shouldn’t act recklessly.
After getting back to the police station, before Xu Cheng made it back to his office, he already saw Ran Jing waiting for him by the office door of Team 2. Li Chao and Wu Gang were making funny faces and teasing Xu Cheng, “Boss, you should take a break when you can and take care of your family too.”
“Screw off!” Xu Cheng glared at those two and then bitterly said to Ran Jing, “Shouldn’t you do some explaining? Otherwise, everybody in HQ will think that there’s something between us.”
“Explain what? As long as we know there’s nothing going on, why would we care what they say? Are we going to tell them that we are also cohabitating?” Ran Jing chuckled and said.
“Please stop talking about cohabitation. I have been getting enough calls from anonymous people telling me to stay away from you.”
“Are you getting scared?” Ran Jing smiled and asked.
“No, it’s just that…”
“Then that’s good, as long as you are not scared.” Ran Jing said, “Besides, do you think getting involved with me is embarrassing or something?”
Xu Cheng bitterly laughed. “Fine, you are the woman so you make the calls. What do you need me for?”
“I can’t come looking for you if I don’t need something from you?” Ran Jing gave him a glare and said, “Because of you high-key screwing West Gate, East Gate became super quiet now. How am I going to deal with my case now?”
“Isn’t that for the best?” Xu Cheng said, “The purpose is to make them not have the balls to stir up trouble in the future! Wait until West Gate and the underground money house both collapse, East Gate will probably learn to behave themselves better as well.”
“Oh, so I guess that you actually helped me and the society out there, huh?” Ran Jing glanced at him from the corner of her eyes and said.
“It’s not like you don’t know how dangerous a case related to any of the Gates is. Since they are willing to stop breaking the law, it’s not like you don’t have any other cases to work on. It would also be relatively safer for you and your team. After this case is done, I’m probably going back to the military. So, this time I must completely take down West Gate and use it to frighten the other two Gates. Think of it as me helping with alleviating some of the stress for your Team 5.”
“You are going?” Ran Jing paused for a moment, a bit shocked. “Everything’s going well, why are you leaving all of a sudden?”
“I have my own plans.” Xu Cheng bitterly smiled. “It’s already been decided.”
Then, he walked into the office. Ran Jing dragged his hand and asked, “Then, have you told Shen Yao about this?”
“Why tell her about it?” Xu Cheng was confused.
“She…” Ran Jing wanted to say Shen Yao liked him, yet she shouldn’t blab about it since Shen Yao hadn’t said anything herself. So Ran Jing changed her words and said, “We are all friends, I think you should also inform her. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be nice.”
In fact, Ran Jing also wasn’t sure if the reason she was nervous about Xu Cheng leaving was really Shen Yao not wanting Xu Cheng to leave, or herself…
Xu Cheng nodded. “I will tell her later. Oh right, you should go home first after you are done work. I still have something else to attend to.”
Ran Jing left a bit depressed.
At night, after work, Xu Cheng drove his own car and left the police HQ. After driving for about a kilometer, he already felt a car was following him.
Xu Cheng first went to the gas station to fuel up, and then he turned his head and looked at the suspicious car parked by the street. With his penetrating vision, he recognized the guy inside – Neil!
