Chapter 387 – Someone is following Sister Xie
Afternoon. 6 pm.
County’s Party Committee Building.
The sun is setting, and the sky is like on fire.
Dong Xuebing handed his self-reflection letter to Cao Xupeng and left his office. Cao Xupeng had reprimanded him for almost half an hour in the office. He knows Cao Xupeng helps him by asking him to write a self-reflection letter and give him a lecture. If a leader wants to make things difficult for him, he will not have the chance to write self-reflection, and the incident will be escalated to the higher-ups.
At the foot of the office building, the staff is walking out of the building slowly.
But the moment Dong Xuebing steps out of the building, everyone turns and looks at him.
Dong Xuebing felt a chill down his spine and put on a straight face. He wonders why everyone is looking at him.
Although Cao Xupeng had tried to contain this incident, lots of people are at the scene. News of Dong Xuebing scolding Xin Hua News Agency reporters spread, and many people were overwhelmed. Chief Dong is always creating trouble, and the trouble he created is bigger every time. Any matter he is involved in, there will be chaos. Those reporters are unlucky to meet him. Of all departments, they created problems for the Investment Promotion Agency. Did they think the G.o.d of Plague is a pushover?
Dong Xuebing boarded his Camry, lit a cigarette, and started the engine.
Suddenly, a familiar figure walks out of the building. It’s Xie Huilan!
“Mayor, are you going back?”
The staff saw her and quickly greeted her.
Xie Huilan smiled and nodded to the staff. “Thanks for your hard work. Go back and have a good rest.” She is in her usual ladies’ cla.s.sy black suit.
It’s been six months since Xie Huilan was transferred to Yan Tai County. No one in the Party Committee building dares to belittle her and treat her as a young female leader brought in from elsewhere. Also, her performance as the second top leader of the County had shocked everyone. Within a few months, she had secured her position and increase her influence to wrestle power from Xiang Daofa. Everyone is no longer fooled by her smiling appearances. They know she is friendly on the outside but ruthless on the inside. She is swift and decisive, and overbearing at times.
A man, in his early thirties, walked over from behind Xie Huilan. “Mayor.”
Xie Huilan turned and smiled. “Keliang.”
“Are you going back to the family quarters? My car was sent for repairs today. Can I get a lift?” Cheng Keliang looked at Xie Huilan.
Xie Huilan smiled. “Haha… Sure. It’s on the way.”
Cheng Keliang replied. “Thank you, Mayor. I was still wondering how to go back.”
Dong Xuebing watched everything from his car. Who is this person? Why is he looking at my wife like this? This man is quite good-looking, and Dong Xuebing immediately felt a threat. He quickly rolled down his windows and called a nearby staff over. “Eh, I remember your name is… Xiao Chen, right?”
Xiao Chen was surprised. He did not expect the infamous G.o.d of Plague to remember his surname. “Chief Dong.”
Dong Xuebing waved and points to that man who had boarded Xie Huilan’s Volvo Pa.s.sat with her. “Who is that?”
“Oh, he is Deputy Mayor Cheng Keliang. He oversees the County’s Ministry of Education.”
Dong Xuebing suddenly remembers who this person is. He is the youngest Deputy Mayor in the County and has some connection with the City Government. He is still single, and Dong Xuebing continued to ask the staff. “Is Mayor Cheng courting Mayor Xie?”
Xiao Chen hesitated for a second and replied. “Err… I think so.”
Dong Xuebing gave him a stare. “Yes is yes, and no is no. What do you mean by thinking so?”
“Huh? Yes.” Xiao Chen quickly reply. He doesn’t dare to not answer the G.o.d of Plague’s question. He lowered his voice. “Mayor Cheng had been trying to get close to Mayor Xie recently. This… everyone knows about this.” Xie Huilan is beautiful and has a good figure. Furthermore, she is still young and single, and Cheng Keliang is the only Deputy Mayor who is single and good enough to be with her. That’s why he started his courts.h.i.+p, and the staff is not surprised.
Dong Xuebing heard this and is p.i.s.sed. d.a.m.n! How dare you go after my woman?!
Dong Xuebing saw Xie Huilan’s driver, Old Xing, driving out of the compound. He quickly starts his car and follows behind.
But the moment Xie Huilan’s car exited the compound, a Volkswagen Jetta suddenly dash out from a side road, and Dong Xuebing nearly crash into that car!
Dong Xuebing quickly applied emergency brakes and saw that Jetta followed behind Xie Huilan’s Pa.s.sat. He cursed. “F**k! Do you know how to drive?!” He floored the accelerator and followed them. He had changed his car and is not afraid of being recognized by others.
The Party Committee Building is not far from the Quarters, but it is the peak period now, and there are lots of cars.
After a while, the County Government’s No. 1 registration plate, Pa.s.sat, stopped in front of a supermarket. Old Xing alighted and enter the supermarket to buy groceries for Xie Huilan.
Dong Xuebing parked his car behind them by the roadside. He can see Cheng Keliang chatting with Xie Huilan and is looking at her deeply. Dong Xuebing is furious, but he cannot do anything. After all, he is not married to Xie Huilan. A few minutes later, Old Xing returned to the car with a few bags of groceries. He boarded the car and continued their way to the County Party Committee quarters.
Suddenly, Dong Xuebing noticed something amiss.
That Jetta, he almost got into an accident with… is following Xie Huilan’s car?!
Dong Xuebing had not noticed earlier, but Jetta had parked by the roadside after Xie Huilan’s car stopped outside the supermarket.
Dong Xuebing frowned. After working for one year, he had become more alert and sensitive. He immediately slowed down and followed behind that Jetta.
Xie Huilan is reaching the County Party Committee’s family quarters and had turned several times. But that Jetta continued to follow Xie Huilan’s car.
Dong Xuebing is mad. This is not coincidental. This Jetta is following Xie Huilan! What is he up to?!
Dong Xuebing could see the driver of that Jetta had a stern look and is quite young. He immediately senses danger, and this is his instinct after fighting with countless people. This driver is a martial arts expert. Dong Xuebing remembered the time when Xie Huilan was almost killed by the timebomb. He took a deep breath and made a decision. He sped up and swerved into that Jetta’s lane, forcing him to stop.
Bam! Dong Xuebing alighted and opened Jetta’s door. “Show me your Identification card! Driving license!”
The driver looked at Dong Xuebing coldly and was about to reverse.
“You want to escape?” Dong Xuebing grabbed the driver’s wrist. “How dare you follow a government official?!”
That man’s face changed slightly. He retaliated by escaping Dong Xuebing’s grip and locked Dong Xuebing’s hand.
Dong Xuebing knew his instinct is right. This person is a martial arts expert and might be more skillful than those Tae Kwon Do black belts. It’s rare to find such martial arts expert in China. Now, this person is following Sister Xie. He doesn’t want to waste any more as he doesn’t have the stamina for a prolonged fight. He needs to end this fight as soon as possible, and he mumbled in his heart!
Dong Xuebing ignored the pa.s.sersby and cars and reached out to grab that man’s neck.
The young man felt a flash, and Dong Xuebing is grabbing him by his neck. It’s too fast, and he could not react. He knew he had met his match and stopped moving his hand that was about to reach for something on his waist. He knew if he made any moves, Dong Xuebing would immediately break his neck before he can do anything!
The young man took a deep breath. “Who are you?” He had not expected Yan Tai County to have such a martial arts expert. He felt humiliated and did not even see how his opponent grabs him by his neck.
Dong Xuebing ignored him and looks at that man’s other hand!
That young man is carrying a piston on his waist! A military piston!
Dong Xuebing is furious. “F**k! You have a gun?! What are you trying to do?! Ah?! How dare you come to Yan Tai County?!” Luckily, he had noticed this suspicious man in time. If he had let this dangerous man get close to Xie Huilan, the consequences could be disastrous. “… Who sent you?! What is your purpose of following Mayor Xie?!”
The young man did not say a word.
“You don’t want to talk?!” Dong Xuebing shouted. “Fine! I will hand you over to the specialized unit to investigate about you!”
Suddenly, Dong Xuebing saw Xie Huilan’s Pa.s.sat parked by the roadside not far away from the corner of his eyes.
The door opened, and Xie Huilan alighted.
