Chapter 420: Taken Away All Titles and Ranks (Part One)
– Yanjing Hospital –
After Xu Cheng got off the plane, he went straight to the hospital. Compared to before, Lin Chuxue was doing much better.
She already woke up, although her face was still slightly pale due to the blood loss.
When Xu Cheng went in, Lin Chuxue opened her eyes and looked at him, waving.
Xu Cheng smiled. “Awake now?”
Lin Chuxue nodded.
Xu Cheng came to her bedside, and Lin Chuxue immediately buried her head between his arms.
She kept on saying, “It’s good that you are back, it’s good that you are back. Your phone was off, and I couldn’t get to you at all, so I was really worried! Don’t be like this anymore, okay? You don’t have your parents anymore, but you still have me. Xu Cheng, do you still remember what you said to me?”
“I do.” Xu Cheng gently stroked Lin Chuxue’s hair, chuckled, and said, “Whoever hurts you will have to pay the price.”
“Before, I didn’t know why you didn’t want me to disclose our relationship,” Lin Chuxue faintly said, “It turned out to be this reason. But Xu Cheng, I really want to tell everyone about our relationship, I want to receive the world’s blessing.”
“There will be that day, Chuxue, I’m working on it.” Xu Cheng sighed, “You know my profession will make me an enemy to a lot of people. Those people that I have to face are all monsters and animals, and they will do anything to hurt me. But believe me, I will take care of all of this. I already taught those guys that hurt you this time a lesson, do you want me to tell you about them?”
“No need.” Lin Chuxue gently smiled. “Nothing is important, as long as you are safe. I picked this marriage myself, my husband’s a police officer. I respect everything you are doing, and I’m proud of you!”
“Thank you.” Xu Cheng bitterly smiled as he held her tightly in his arms.
Lin Chuxue was like a little cat as she snuggled in Xu Cheng’s arms, and her arms wrapped around Xu Cheng’s waist. She was already not in good shape and hadn’t recovered yet, and now she didn’t want to move at all.
Not long after, Lin Chuxue fell asleep. Outside the ward, Auntie Lan poked her head in and said, “Young Master, someone’s here looking for you.”
Xu Cheng gently put Lin Chuxue’s head on the pillow and then he walked out. Right after he got out, he was handcuffed by the officers. Xu Cheng bitterly smiled, and he didn’t try to fight back.
“Auntie Lan, when she’s awake, tell her that I will be back very soon,” Xu Cheng said to Auntie Lan and then he was taken away.
– Next day, at the military court –
The judge: “Xu Cheng, colonel of the 5th Military Region, during your service period, you didn’t follow the rules due to personal interests and failed to fulfill your duties and follow discipline as a colonel and a leader, severely damaging the reputation of the soldiers of our nation. We hereby revoke your military service status and military titles, and revoke all duties of the Dragon Division.”
Then, the judge asked Xu Cheng, “Do you have any objections?”
Xu Cheng took off his hat and military badges and saluted. “Xu Cheng accepts all judgements! No objections!”
In the audience’s seat, all of the commanders were sighing.
When Xu Cheng left the court, Bei Shan and the other Dragon Division members were all in casual clothes waiting for him in the corridor.
Seeing him come out, they all began clapping. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“I got fired, and you guys are still gloating?” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
The J of Diamonds gave him a big thumb up and said, “I don’t know who the next Dragon King is, but speaking of capabilities, he will definitely be below you. Just by the chaos you were able to cause in Wei Nation, you are worthy of being called a mastermind. Congrats, from now on, you are a true Joker!” (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
