Chapter 22: Venting Anger
Not far away, Lin Dong and his brother Young Master Lin and his friends parked their cars by the side of the road. Young Master Lin saw the scene and said, “That guy in the spiked jacket is from the North Gate Gang. The most annoying thing about these guys is, they will use intimidation and blackmail when dealing with the rich, and talk about the law in the face of bureaucracy; they are incredibly difficult to deal with.”
Lin Dong didn’t speak, he just lowered the window and watched from the car.
Xu Cheng felt that these seven guys weren’t planning to let him go to take a look at the alarm system.
At that moment, he could only show his helplessness through grinning. He looked around at the seven people that were looking at him like tigers looking at a sheep and said, “You guys are doing this purposely, right?”
“Quit the BS, you still have five minutes.”
Xu Cheng: “Then don’t bother counting down, I won’t give you the 300 thousand yuan.”
The guy with the chain necklace narrowed his eyes and said, “You think I’m joking with you? So what you are saying is that you want to pick number two and get beaten up by us right?”
“What else can I do?’ Xu Cheng looked at him in the eyes and calmly replied, “I don’t have the money, so there’s only one option left for me. But since I know that you will beat me up, then why not try and fight back? After all, I’m a police officer, I can’t be too much of a coward.”
A grim expression flashed past the face of the man in the chain necklace. Then, he raised his hand up high and swung it towards Xu Cheng. However, just before it was about to touch Xu Cheng’s face, Xu Cheng raised his hand and grabbed his wrist.
He said emotionlessly, “You know you are about to hit a police officer, right?”
The man with the chain necklace had an indifferent expression. “Oh, my bad, I didn’t see that you are a police officer. I just saw that you rear-ended my car and got too angry.”
“Very well.” Xu Cheng faintly smiled. “I was afraid that you would see me as an officer and go easy. If that’s not the case, then let’s have some fun. I also need to vent some anger.”
That’s right, Xu Cheng indeed needed to release his pent-up anger. He worked so hard for the past 7 to 8 years so that one day he could join the Dragon Division. Who would’ve known that the damned genetic fluid injected into his body would cause his overall strength to decline. He squeezed out a smile as he walked out of his base because he didn’t want his comrades to see the fragile side of him. He already cried out all his tears when his father passed away, so god knows how much he wanted to release all of his anger right now. A full-out fight couldn’t have come at a better time!
That night, getting drunk wasn’t enough to digest all the pain, nor would it be that easy, and that was why he didn’t really care about anything that was happening to him and gave those two beautiful ladies, Ran Jing and Shen Yao, the feeling that he was gay. In fact, entering the Dragon Division was Xu Cheng’s dream, but when that dream was suddenly shattered, he really felt that there wasn’t much more to look forward to in life. At this point, he really wanted to take off the police uniform and fight these guys without a care in the world.
The people from North Gate were stunned for a second.
Then, the man in the chain necklace noticed that his wrist was suddenly twisted by Xu Cheng!
At the next moment, his entire face lost color as he screamed in pain.
Xu Cheng landed a solid kick on that guy’s chest, directly sending him flying and landing with his a-s facing the sky. Then, the other six guys’ punches and kicks all began flying over.
Xu Cheng went head on against those attacks with his fists and legs, completely unafraid of getting hurt. Anyone who met his fists, whether it was their hands or legs, all felt like they were being smacked brutally by a steel pipe.
Xu Cheng pulled on a guy’s collar, threw him over the shoulder, and then sent a flying punch at the face of the guy beside him.
The people of North Gate couldn’t even scream in pain, as blood directly gushed out from their noses and mouths, causing them to cover their faces, unable to even get up.
A guy did a roundhouse kick aiming at the back of Xu Cheng’s head, but Xu Cheng grabbed it with one hand, locked it under his armpit, grabbed onto the guy’s shirt with the other hand, and directly threw him out like a shot put after spinning around once.
The sheer arm strength needed to be able to throw someone over 180 cm (5’11) tall through the air in a perfect arc dumbfounded Young Master Lin and the others who were observing in the distance.
“So strong!” The blonde-haired brat Lin Dong looked at Xu Cheng in combat admiringly, it was that violent and domineering!
The other second-generation rich kids beside Young Master Lin already saw Xu Cheng taking care of Yun Bing and the others the other night, but back then, they just thought it was understandable since those rich heirs weren’t good at fighting anyways. However, tonight, it was the monsters from North Gate! Just that guy in the chain necklace along was probably a thug who had grown up fighting, yet the ruthless side that Xu Cheng displayed tonight gave Lin Dong and the others the feeling that he was going easy the other night in front of the club.
The man in the chain necklace on the ground violently coughed a few times. When he saw the worsening situation, a malicious thought immediately came into his head. He directly pulled out a butterfly knife from his pocket and charged towards Xu Cheng’s back.
Xu Cheng was busy 1v2ing and didn’t pay any attention to his back. When he heard someone roaring, he felt a sense of danger from his back. If he was in his prime, he would’ve reacted right away, turned around, and sent the guy flying with a kick. But now, he forgot the fact that his body condition worsened, and when he realized that his body couldn’t react to his mind like before anymore, his face changed a little.
Seeing that the dagger was about to go into his back, his subconscious immediately took over and controlled his body to react to the danger. His body moved as fast as the wind towards the guy behind him, locking the guy in place with his elbow against the guy’s chest.
The guy in the chain necklace was terrified and dumbfounded seeing Xu Cheng dashing over, and just before he could react, he felt his body taking a hit and being sent flying like a kite with a broken string. That powerful impact felt like he had gotten rammed in the a-s by a bull on crack.
The other people were already like spent arrows as well, not able to pose any more threat before easily getting dropped by Xu Cheng. Xu Cheng was also covered in sweat and breathing heavily. His doctor was right about his body getting worse. Before when he was taking the test, he still didn’t believe in the machine’s analysis of the drop in his capabilities. But after the fight tonight, Xu Cheng immediately felt the truth that his strength was on a serious decline.
The seven North Gate thugs were all whining like babies and hiding their heads in their arms, their faces covered in bruises. They were indeed good tools to vent anger on.
Seeing their state, Xu Cheng let out a breath. “Come on, continue!”
Seeing the guy in chain necklace who was now lying on the ground looking up at the moon, Xu Cheng slowly walked over, grabbed a pack of cigarettes that had dropped on the ground, picked out one for himself, lit it up, and squatted down in front of the guy.
The guy in the chain necklace squinted his eyes. “You got balls, do you know who I am?”
“Don’t want to. Don’t care. I’m an officer, so I’m going to arrest you if you dare to break the law.” Xu Cheng said in disdain, “Do you still want to fight?”
The guy weakly shook his head.
“Do you still want the 300 thousand yuan?” Xu Cheng continued to asked.
The guy continued to shake his head.
Xu Cheng stood up and threw his cigarette butt, and then landed another solid kick on the guy, causing him to scream miserably.
“Arresting people like you will only waste public resources. You can try again next time, and we can bet if I dare to shoot you or not,” Xu Cheng warned him, and then he directly walked over to lift up the fallen motorcycle.
The engine roared, and he rode off, leaving Young Master Lin and his guys dumbfounded. “Looks like Shangcheng’s rich and powerful had welcomed themselves a strong opponent, but I don’t know if he’s going to end up as a mouse or a cat.”
