Chapter 705: I have a clear conscience about this country! (Part One)
Xu Cheng drove to the border checkpoint, where there was one of the biggest breakfast restaurants.
He entered the restaurant and saw a white bearded old man of Asian descent sitting in the corner drinking coffee. Xu Cheng had never seen Little Joker before, but there was only one person who was seventy or eighty years old and Asian. So, he sat down at the table behind the old man, the two almost sitting back to back to each other.
After finishing a piece of bread, Xu Cheng said as he chewed, “I find it hard to believe that you allowed yourself to age these years, how many years has it been since you left the Dragon Division?”
Little Joker also lowered his head and ate the roast meat as he said, as if to himself, “Fifteen years and two hundred thirty-one days.”
Xu Cheng said sarcastically, “You remember it quite clearly, huh?”
Little Joker: “Of course, being away from home, you’ll never know how much an undercover agent has to endure every day.”
Xu Cheng: “That’s why I said, why persist? Maybe someone simply cannot survive this way, so I suspect that you’ve already changed inside.”
Little Joker sneered. “Your misunderstanding about me comes from the entanglement between your master and I, so I can understand. I swear to god that I may not be a good person, but I have a clear conscience for my country and for the Dragon Division.”
Xu Cheng: “If you have anything else to say, say it quickly. My woman is still in their hands.”
“You know clearly that they are after you, and your woman will only become a burden to you. I don’t want you to go,” Little Joker said.
“That’s bullsh*t.” Xu Cheng snorted. “I know that sooner or later my woman will become a burden to me, so I tried my best not to expose her or our relationship. But for a woman who was willing to wander the world with you, all she wanted was as a name. I knew she was kidnapped because of me, that’s why I have to save her even more.”
Little Joker: “You can’t save her, you’re no match for those people.”
Xu Cheng: “You’ve fought with me before, haven’t you paid the price for your underestimation?”
Little Joker laughed. “Did you really think I’ve underestimated you? You think I wouldn’t know where the Dragon Division basecamp is? Why didn’t I just go in that night, instead ordering the 7 demons to do it? Why did I only fight you? If I were to kill you, would I tell you so much about the mysteries of the Shadow Fist?”
Xu Cheng was surprised. “What do you mean?”
“Senior Brother called me before he was about to die and told me to come, instruct you, and test your strength, so that you would be able to convince the fellow Dragon Division members to be a team. Secondly, I could relax and continue to investigate the case here. In fact, I have always been worried about our country, and I’m full of guilt for your master. However, from the standpoint of the country, it was what I had to do. He was indulged in the warmth created by that woman and ignored the slowly arising Four Clans. I couldn’t take it anymore and tried to talk with him several times, but it didn’t work. So I had no choice but to do what I had to do, except that I didn’t actually harass that woman, I just let it happen at a specific time when 师兄 could see us. He started to give her the cold shoulder after that, but I didn’t think she would commit suicide. I guess in the end it was fine because then 师兄 could focus only on the Dragon Division, and I could use this opportunity to leave the country and enter the M Nation. If I did not have the absolute power to prove myself capable of teaching the M Nation special forces, I wouldn’t have entered the fifth division and investigated deeper all the way to the higher executives.”
