Chapter 87: Visiting Tevez's Family's Casino
Xu Cheng wasn't stupid, and he could obviously tell that Tevez's words were to belittle him.
It was difficult to say in front of Lin Chuxue's parents, but Tevez really wanted to swear at Xu Cheng and call him an ugly toad that wanted to date a beautiful swan!
Lin Chuxue could have her opinions on Xu Cheng, but she would definitely not allow others to belittle him in front of her. Hearing another man subtly insulting her man, she directly interrupted Tevez, "I'm still doing music, and I think it's all worth it. I'm sorry, I'm a woman with a husband now, and I think it's best for you to show less interest in me because I don't want my husband to misunderstand that there's something between us."
"Is your relations.h.i.+p with your husband really that good?" Tevez narrowed his eyes and questioned Lin Chuxue. If he were to put in the slightest effort, he could find out just how little the two contacted each other in the past few years. It wouldn't take Sherlock to find out that their marriage might be in the red zone.
Lin Chuxue didn't answer, nor did Xu Cheng.
Tevez then changed topics. "Okay, since Auntie and Uncle are here on vacation, how about we go to the casino my family runs?"
"You family won the bid?" Lin Guiren asked, a bit shocked. In the past few years, the Shangcheng government only opened up 10 slots for business licenses in this area. However, they were particularly exclusive, especially for foreigners. Tevez's family was an authentic British Family, so reasonably speaking, it should have been impossible for them to get involved in this industry.
Speaking of this, Tevez said proudly, "I have a few Huaxia friends and we met back during university in Great Britain. They all have big backgrounds, and then I just happened to bring this up to them, and they pulled some strings and worked something out for me. But yeah, we spent a lot of money and got a few shares in the casino, but we aren't big shareholders though."
Lin Guiren praised, "That's already very good! Many foreign companies don't even have the opportunity to enter. This is a very lucrative project if run well."
Tevez's smile was even brighter and he said, "That's also what my father said, and my family's very satisfied with this. So, after I graduated, they sent me here to take care of the businesses on the casino side."
Lin Lei then suddenly asked with a weird tone, "Umm, I wonder how many women the people in this industry have? I know a few friends running casinos in Las Vegas, and holy c.r.a.p, the money, the booze; there's was only one word that can describe that life - wild."
He knew that this pig wanted his sister. As a veteran in the women's game himself, it was easy for him to see through Tevez.
Tevez awkwardly coughed and immediately explained, "My family is really strict."
In fact, he was just saying this for Lin Chuxue to hear, but the latter didn't even care. She still had her arm around Xu Cheng's and said, "With my current ident.i.ty, I don't think it will be convenient to go."
She was a famous celebrity. Not to mention if she attracted attention when she was there, it would also be bad press if the media caught wind of this and began gossiping about how she was spotted in a casino. In fact, she also knew that this pig was just trying to show off in front of Xu Cheng, and she didn't want him to get his way.
"It's fine, it's just for a tour. If Uncle wants to play, then I have VIP rooms. Besides, my casino definitely won't allow the media to enter, not to mention the level of confidentiality we have with our VIP rooms. Even if it was the president that came, he wouldn't attract too much attention," Tevez immediately said, "Besides, there's really nothing fun in Shangcheng. Although, the casinos here aren't as good as the ones in Las Vegas, it's the best in Asia, and it's really big. It's definitely worth a tour."
Since Tevez was already this enthusiastic about this, it wouldn't be nice if they didn't go. Besides, Tevez's family and the Lin Family had a pretty good relations.h.i.+p in Britain. So, Mommy Lin smiled and said, "Then, should we go and take a look?"
Mommy Lin's thoughts were actually pretty simple as well. If her daughter did end up divorcing Xu Cheng, then she would still have to look for another potential suitor for her daughter.
Not to mention character first, Tevez's family background was similar with the Lin Family's background, and they could get to know each other more to find out about whether he was a reliable guy.
But, Mommy Lin also completely respected Xu Cheng, and if he didn't feel comfortable then she would directly reject Tevez. So, she looked towards Xu Cheng, and the latter just nodded indifferently.
Tevez called his driver to drive over the new business cla.s.s Maybach his dad bought for him. It could only seat 5 people, so after Lin Chuxue and her parents got in, Tevez gestured for Lin Lei to get into the front pa.s.senger seat so they could talk about cars and stuff. After all, young guys were most likely very interested in cars, especially luxury cars and supercars.
However, Lin Lei rejected his friendly invitation and said, "It's fine, I will go and ride with my Brother-in-Law."
After that, Lin Lei directly went and sat in the pa.s.senger seat of Xu Cheng's Volkswagen, which was driven over earlier. Looking at the luxury car in front of them, he snorted, "Brother-in-Law, I know the kind of character this guy was back in England. Even if you divorce my sister, you must not hand my sister over to that sc.u.mbag."
Xu Cheng started the car and followed behind the Maybach sedan as he said, "Don't worry, your parents have good eyes too. But yeah, Lei, sorry."
Lin Lei turned around to look at him. "For what?"
Xu Cheng: "The marriage between your sister and I, I'm sorry."
Lin Lei sighed, "People not involved can see clearer than you two that are involved in the relations.h.i.+p. Brother-in-Law, when can your heart become strong enough to put aside that pride and go chase after my sister? I grew up with you sharing the same room, I know better than anyone else how much you love my sister. Since you love her, why not go care for her and cherish her? You are always afraid of those people calling you a pimp, getting raised by my family and now also greedily wanting to marry the treasured daughter of the family too, right?"
Xu Cheng didn't say anything. But, Lin Lei was right. Under the premise of this kind of psychology, he was afraid that if he were to go after Lin Chuxue, any action to love and care for her could be perceived as pretentious and contrived with an ulterior motive. Then, Lin Chuxue might look down on him. And, if he forcibly got Lin Chuxue to marry him, then she might also call him ungrateful.
To be honest, Xu Cheng was pretty unconfident in himself in the past, especially when it came to Lin Chuxue. That was why he decided to go back to his home country and try to change himself. However, he still didn't have the courage to face his wife, Lin Chuxue. After all, this wife was forcibly married to him rather than by her own will. Under this premise, he felt like anything he tried to do would be wrong, and that he would be regarded as an ugly frog that wanted to date a beautiful and majestic swan, even by Lin Chuxue herself.
He was quite afraid of arriving at that kind of result, it would be pretty hurtful. He wanted to go back to the younger days when they could keep a simple and innocent friends.h.i.+p and just be able to chat and laugh and play together, but those days were gone.
"Lei, as long as your sister doesn't agree to the divorce, no one will be able to take her away from me. I promise," Xu Cheng gritted his teeth and said.
"Brother-in-Law, I only have one sister, and I only have one Brother-in-Law, and I know you won't let me down." Lin Lei smiled. "Hope one day, my sis can notice the goodness about you."
"I will make her realize that I'm no longer the me from before." Xu Cheng smiled.
Chapter 78: Switching Mode with Concentration
Xu Cheng chewed on his apple as he asked Ran Jing, "You've worked as a criminal police officer for so many years, have you seen a professional killer before?"
Ran Jing shook her head. "Close to none. We normally deal with normal criminals."
Xu Cheng then looked towards Shen Yao. "You for sure haven't seen any before too, right?"
Then, he shrugged his shoulders. "And you guys are here to protect me? Do you know how professional killers a.s.sa.s.sinate people?"
"We have a dozen undercover agents. Anyone coming close to your room will be immediately identified through our internal communication network and intercepted."
Xu Cheng asked her, "You know that the three Gates are trying hard to get rid of me so they can kill off the morale that has been spiking in the police force, but do you know who they are hiring to do the job?"
Ran Jing paused for a moment. "Nope."
Xu Cheng was speechless. He asked again, "Then have you guys learned the details of the hospital's floor plans and the entrances, exists, corners, and such that the a.s.sa.s.sins could use? Do you know the entire layout and surrounding terrain of this hospital? Also, have you guys practiced for emergencies?"
Ran Jing also had her thoughts.
"I don't think it's necessary. Think about it, you just killed Gate Master Yan, so if something happened to you right now, then wouldn't it be clear that they were the ones behind it? They wouldn't be stupid enough to act during this time period."
Xu Cheng smiled. "I don't think so. If I'm the three Gates, then I would pick right now to take action. First of all, I'm severely injured, so it's the best opportunity to kill me. Secondly, the three Gates could just push the blame onto North Gate, since it makes sense that the North Gate members would try to avenge their leader. If they don't take care of me right now, they will have nightmares when I fully recover and get back to work. By then, do you think it will be easy to a.s.sa.s.sinate me? Besides, even if they killed me and infuriated the police, what proof would there be to show that they were behind it? The law and court only look at evidence, not personal feelings."
Ran Jing was a bit embarra.s.sed by Xu Cheng's on-point a.n.a.lysis.
"And that's why I was confused about why you just came like this to protect me. And Shen Yao too, do you think this is a joke? Hurry and go home. If possible, Ran Jing, you should go back too and don't get dragged into this. Get someone else to guard me."
Xu Cheng didn't want these two to get involved and get hurt, and he also felt like if something were to happen, those two would only weigh him down.
"You think I want to protect you? I was a.s.signed to this job by my supervisor, I'm already on the lower end of the stick not being a.s.signed to go to the North Gate cleanup operations. My whole team complained for a while because we had to stay and babysit you." Ran Jing snorted, "Oh and you are overthinking this. I know for sure that they won't be picking a time like this to a.s.sa.s.sinate you."
Xu Cheng was speechless. "I really doubt how you made your way up to the criminal police captain position… You have no brain at all."
"You even doubt my professionalism?" Ran Jing wasn't happy. With her hands on her hips, she said, "Wanna bet?"
Xu Cheng: "Bet what?"
"If no killer appears in the next two days, then come report to my squad after you get out of the hospital," Ran Jing said.
"Report to your squad?" Xu Cheng was a bit surprised. "I don't think you can make this kind of work transfers."
"Of course I can't, but you accomplished something huge this time for the director at HQ. I doubt he will let you keep wasting time at the local police bureau and will probably transfer you to HQ. If you lose, then come to my squad, and I will let you know the power of Captain Ran."
Moving to the criminal police department meant he had more power to apprehend criminals, Xu Cheng felt that was alright for him, so he nodded and said, "Okay. And what if you lose?"
Ran Jing said, "Come to my squad, and I will call you Captain Xu."
"Interesting." Xu Cheng laughed. "Deal."
"We are not completely useless too. At least, you can tell me what you want to eat and I will go and buy it for you." Shen Yao really wanted to leap onto Xu Cheng and strangle him. "This is the first time a stinky man doesn't want me as a company. Well, I'm taking care of you because you helped me win money. Otherwise, why would I be in the mood to stay here? Humph!"
"Didn't you bet on North Gate's leader?" Xu Cheng asked.
"After all, I'm the daughter of a businessman. I will lose big if I bet on that and lose, and what if the unthinkable did happen? Besides, there's barely any profit even if I bet on that old dude and win, so I might as well bet my money on you and try my luck," Shen Yao said, very proud of herself. "Last time, I lost so much money because of you. Who knew if you were hiding some tricks in your sleeves that might actually beat the North Gate Master? So, I bet my money on you."
Xu Cheng looked at her with approval. "Very nice, you are quite smart."
"Well, I just decided to gamble once, it wasn't because I believed in you." Shen Yao pouted.
"Okay, Xu Cheng, the doctor said that you need rest. Talk less. It's 11 o'clock at night now, so you should sleep. We will rotate our s.h.i.+fts and supervise the nurse when she changes your medication and drip." After saying that, Ran Jing started organizing the messy table.
Xu Cheng nodded and decided to take a nap. Suddenly, he remembered the change with his eyes earlier, so he felt he should take some time to figure out his eyes first. Could it be this time that he fell unconscious that caused his vision to mutate?
He opened his eyes, there was still no change. He closed his eyes, opened them again, and there was still nothing.
Shen Yao saw him closing and opening and closing and opening his eyes, so she asked, "What are you doing?"
"Nothing. I was just unconscious and sleeping for too long and wanted to tire my eyes out a bit so I can go back to sleep," explained Xu Cheng.
Then, Shen Yao stopped bothering him. Xu Cheng was quite confused, how could he change his vision to before where he could see through everything like an x-ray?
He closed his eyes, took a deep breath, allowing himself to concentrate. After brewing for a minute with his eyes closed and attention focused, when Xu Cheng opened his eyes again, Ran Jing and Shen Yao both became moving skeletons in his eyes.
Xu Cheng was shocked and he immediately closed his eyes and told himself to relax. Indeed, he wasn't dreaming! His eyes really had undergone a qualitative change!
When he opened his eyes again, maybe it was because his level of focus had decreased a bit, but the scene that came to his eyes almost gave him a nose bleed.
It was like Shen Yao and Ran Jing's exterior clothes had become transparent, and he was able to see them only in their bras and underwear. The exquisite, rich and perfect outline of their chests shocked Xu Cheng, he felt like he switched to the wrong channel.
To be polite, he immediately closed his eyes, his heart beating.
He kept groaning in his heart, "What just happened? How come I could see their skeletons the first time, and when I opened my eyes again, I could only see through that layer of clothes? Can I change the depth with how much concentration I use with my eyes?
At the thought of this, Xu Cheng concentrated his attention and opened his eyes again. This time, the scene of a lobby came into his eyes, and there were many beds and patients and the nurses on duty were changing medicine for them.
Xu Cheng immediately closed his eyes, relaxed, and opened them again. Everything turned back to normal.
To ensure what he saw was true, Xu Cheng really wanted to ask Shen Yao if she was wearing a violet-colored bra.
But he kept his mouth shut, because he would get beaten to death by her. Or, he could also ask if she was 36C.
But he would get beaten to death if he asked that too.
Xu Cheng had no choice but to ask Ran Jing, "Is the area next to this room the public area for IV injection?"
Ran Jing paused for a moment. "Yeah, how do you know?
Xu Cheng could hardly contain the excitement in his heart, and he was at the same time very shocked. The scene he just saw was actually the scene on the other side of the wall.
