Chapter 84: I Have Someone I Like Already
Scarface followed that van. He wasn’t from Shangcheng so he didn’t really know that the van was on its way to the police HQ. He just thought it was Dolphin and the others, so he followed them.
“Retreat, meet at base camp,” he said to the mic as he followed the van.
But, who knew a stranger’s voice suddenly came out from his earpiece. It was none other but Xu Cheng.
“Brother Scarface, where are you planning on going following that van?”
Upon hearing this, Scarface’s pupils immediately enlarged, and when he finally realized that something was off with the van in front of him, he immediately stomped on the brakes, planning to turn around. However, he just felt his car being hit by someone from the rear, and within a second, cop cars came out of nowhere and had him completely surrounded.
“Police! Get out of the car!”
There were police in all directions, and seeing all the cold steel barrels pointing at him, Scarface slammed his steering wheel in rage. He was even more infuriated when he saw three undercover officers come down from that van, feeling like he just got played hard!
“My men will avenge me!” he surrendered, but he muttered to Xu Cheng through his earpiece.
“Your men?” Xu Cheng paused for a moment.
“Yeah, you only got a few, we still have more,” Scarface said.
“Oh, let me count for you.” Xu Cheng paused for a second, counted those peeps up and said, “Plus you, is this a group of 7?”
Scarface’s eyes opened up wide, and before he could start cursing, he was pulled out of the car by the police officers and cuffed up. From other police cruisers, Ran Jing and the other officers came down with the other arrested members of the hitman group. Upon seeing everyone captured, he couldn’t be more shocked.
When he was locked up with the others, Dolphin bitterly smiled. “Someone sold us out.”
“Those bastards!” Scarface cursed. He wasn’t talking about Xu Cheng, but those from the four Gates.
After locking them up, Ran Jing got her men to pull up the previous criminal histories of these guys. It didn’t take long before her men came back with the reports and handed it to Ran Jing. “Captain Ran, this is a big fish! This hitman group might not be very famous on the international stage, but within the country, they already completed over a dozen jobs, with their targets all being billionaires or influential figures. This group is very professional and had gone years unpunished. Unexpectedly, they actually fell into your hands today, Captain Ran.”
Upon hearing the history of this group was this impressive, Ran Jing took a while to come back to her sense. Her underlings started sucking up to her immediately and congratulating her, “Even Jing City’s police spent so many years trying to take down this hitman group but failed and listed them as A+ Wanted Criminals, and today, they were all caught by you! Congratulations!”
It was a big achievement, and Ran Jing was still dumbfounded right now. Was this reality right now? An A+ tier hitman organization was easily taken care of by Xu Cheng, just like that? Why did she feel like the difficulty of today’s arrest did not reflect their A+ tier label?
The director of the criminal investigation department already came over after hearing the news. After comparing the Wanted Profile information with the criminals in the interrogation room, he excitedly walked over, patted on Ran Jing’s shoulder, smiled, and said, “Good job, you indeed didn’t let me down. It looks like I made the right move transferring you to Shangcheng.”
“Director, I…” Ran Jing really wanted to tell him that it actually had nothing to do with her and everything to do with Xu Cheng, but she was interrupted before she could talk.
The director smiled and said, “Keep up the good work, the award of recognition will be here in the next few days.”
“I…” Ran Jing really didn’t know what to say anymore.
“Okay, I have to go fill out the report now for Jing City.” After talking, the director laughed and left. He was clearly on cloud 9 after capturing such a big fish.
Ran Jing just stood there, dumbfounded. Well, she didn’t really do anything… but such a big award was just dropped into her hands like that?
At the thought of this, she remembered how casual Xu Cheng was throughout the whole time.
This guy was really just getting more and more mysterious.
Inside the hospital, there was only Shen Yao and Xu Cheng left. She shuffled over, tapped Xu Cheng on the arm. “Stop pretending to be asleep. Get up. I know you can’t fall asleep.”
“Oh damn, you got me,” Xu Cheng said, a bit grumpy.
“You were sleeping for so long, your spirit and energy should be replenished already.” Shen Yao rolled her eyes at him.
“Then are you here to take care of me or to torture me? You don’t want me to sleep, do I have to be responsible to chat with you and keep you company?” Xu Cheng replied.
“First, tell me what just happened from the very beginning, and then I will let you sleep.” Shen Yao urgently wanted to know. “How did you do it? It seems like you saw through the entire operation of those killers and all of their motives and intentions. That’s so amazing!”
Xu Cheng drily laughed. “Don’t admire me, I’m just a legend.”
In fact, he didn’t really know how to explain, so he tried to just brush it off.
However, Shen Yao wasn’t the easy type to deal with. She frowned and said, “Are you going to tell me or not? If you don’t, then I’m going to take the billions of yuan you have with me at the underground money house.”
Holy crap, she’s gonna play dirty!
Xu Cheng pointed with his index finger and middle finger at his eyeballs, “Because I have a pair of eyes that allows me to see through everything. They can’t escape my eyes no matter where they run or hide.”
Shen Yao glared at Xu Cheng from the corner of her eyes with the expression that basically said “are you kidding me”. She snorted, “If you are not going to say it, then whatever. Just don’t think about getting your money back.”
Xu Cheng didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “Yooo, I told you, and you don’t believe me.”
“Whatever, if you don’t want to say it then don’t.” Then, seizing this opportunity of being alone with Xu Cheng, she changed the topic. “By the way, do you have a girlfriend or not?”
“Why?” Xu Cheng looked at her with vigilance.
“What kind of look is that? It’s not like I will eat you or something.” Shen Yao glared at him. “If you don’t, then I can set you up with someone.”
Xu Cheng replied, “It’s fine.”
Shen Yao became anxious. “I didn’t even tell you who I’m going to set you up with yet, and you are already turning me down?”
Xu Cheng: “I’m really okay. I will pass.”
Shen Yao: “She’s really pretty.”
Xu Cheng shook his head.
Shen Yao: “She’s really rich too, and you can basically be her sugar baby.”
Xu Cheng shook his head.
Shen Yao: “She’s got a great body, good enough for you to bring to any occasion.”
Xu Cheng shook his head.
Shen Yao’s eyes became bigger. “She’s still a virgin!”
Xu Cheng pondered for a bit and then proceeded to shook his head. “I will pass.”
Shen Yao directly started shouting, “Xu Cheng, are you gay?! Do you not know about love or something? Holy fack!”
“There’s already someone I like,” Xu Cheng quietly said.
Shen Yao’s face slowly dimmed, a hint of disappointment flashing past her eyes.
The room immediately became silent.
After awhile, Shen Yao was feeling bitter but she still pretended to be okay. “That’s a pity, my cousin is really a good girl, I was only trying to set you up with her because I think you are not too bad yourself. Oh well.”
After saying that, Shen Yao felt pretty sour in her heart.
“If you already have someone you like, why not go and chase after her?”
Xu Cheng bitterly smiled. “Because I think I don’t deserve her as of right now.”
