Chapter 467 Weird
This beautiful young lady was a quite capable person. She was kind of a half think tank, half secretary of Lao Xue. She dealt with a lot of businesses for him and even did better than him since women were more patient and careful. That was why Lao Xue had been good to her. He was willing to meet all of her reasonable needs.
She was smart and obedient. Everytime Lao Xue called her, she would attend to him as soon as possible. Besides, she ran Lao Xue’s business, especially those on the black market.
What happened just then had been arranged by her. She “wrote the script” for everybody. She was very sensible since her plan was not targeting THAT person, but to deliver a signal to other people who would finish the plan for her. By this means, nobody would suspect her.
Han Xu was a regular at clubs like these in Beijing. He spent most of his time in the capital city. So everytime when he said Qin Sheng was SOMEONE in Beijing, he didn’t really mean it by saying that. It was no more than a joke. In fact, he was the SOMEONE in Beijing. When he left the booth, walking down toward the hallway, a couple of people greeted him like real friends all along his way out. This was just the same scenario when he came in.
Those people, who were a bit tipsy, got half sober after coming out of the club. The flashing light and the loud music triggered their hormones, making people kind of dizzy. But they all felt better then due to the comfortable breeze outside.
Contrary to the crowded interior of the club, it was relatively quiet outside. Tipsy or drunk people moved around, staggering. Women all wore heavy makeup like Paris Hilton, but men just deemed those women as their targets. It was a hidden game rule in that place, women became easy to get after they got drunk.
They couldn’t drive after drinking alchohol. In case of any troubles, Han Xu arranged two drivers for everybody. They would send everybody home.
Qin Sheng didn’t get on Han Xu’s car. His own driver, Chang Baji, had been waiting for him. On the way to Ghost Street, their next destination, Qin Sheng started a conversation with Hao Lei by saying, “Brother Lei, it’s kinda boring, huh?”
Hao Lei shook his head and said, “No. It’s OK.”
“It’s not that hard today since we’re with Han Xu and these friends. I will have endless similar scenarios to deal with. Life is such a struggle,” Qin Sheng said and forced a bitter smile. He wanted to let out his sad feelings by drinking alchohol, while things got nothing but worse. The only thing he could do at the moment was to keep calm and easy.
Hao Lei was not good at comforting Qin Sheng at this moment. He couldn’t imagine Qin Sheng’s incredible experiences, especially the great changes that happened to him in recent days.
“I’m so missing those days when we were still high schoolers. We didn’t think that much. We only studied, talked about those beautiful girls, wrote love letters, bought gifts for beautiful girls, played basketball and video games… Humph, I really miss those days,” Hao Lei said in a low tone. He hoped that those good memories could encourage Qin Sheng.
It did work. Qin Sheng felt much better then and also drew himself in the happy old memories when they were all teenagers.
It was a bit late when they arrived at Ghost Street, but the businesses there were still quite busy. Qin Sheng, Hao Lei and their other old classmates went to a food stall and got a table, to eat spicy crayfish and chat away. The sad feelings just then were just temporary, and had been forgotten. They just chatted and had a few laughs. The distance among them was reduced very soon.
Qin Sheng then withdrew his distant face, and put forward some interesting topics about their youth. It was impossible to build up deep friendships over a meal, but they got to be familiar with each other. Maybe one day they would help each other when in need.
After the meal, most people went back to their own places respectively. Some went on to other places to have fun, but Qin Sheng just left. There was no parking lot in the surrounding places, so their three cars were parked on the other road. They walked a bit to sober up.
When they almost got to the parking lot, a group of strong men rushed towards them from two minibuses on the road. They had seven or eight. Everybody knew what was going on. Somebody, probably someone they had conflicts with at VICS, must have arranged for those people to show up and wait to get them.
Except for Han Xu, who often exercised in the gym and the boxing hall, the others were all busy with working and didn’t have time to exercise. They could by no means be capable of fighting against real gangsters like these people. Beijing was not their place, so their bodyguards, who used to be with them all the time, didn’t follow them here. After all, nobody would ever imagine that they would get into these troubles, since they just went to a party.
Wei Li and the others ran back to the direction they came, which was more populated. It was Beijing, a place with many police officers driving here and there. Those people would not dare to make any big news. They could take a revenge later.
But Han Xu didn’t run. He was really irritated this time. He had been fed up with his bad luck and the series of troubles that day; at the moment, he was seeking chance to let his anger out. The chance had arrived. He wasn’t afraid of being hit, and was quite sure that someone would surely come to settle this down. But he was tipsy, so this thought was not much from reason.
Since Han Xu was still there, Qin Sheng and Hao Lei were not going to run, either. They were not afraid of those gangsters. Qin Sheng was thinking, “Who made these people come here? The people we met at the VICS? Or my old foe?”
Before Qin Sheng found an answer, Han Xu rushed forward fiercely. Qin Sheng couldn’t help but laugh. Idiot!
Qin Sheng and Hao Lei followed for fear of Han Xu being hurt by that many people. Han Xu wasn’t really good at fighting; he would definitely get hurt later.
Chang Baji, however, was waiting for Qin Sheng in the parking lot, which was not far from where the conflict broke out. He heard the noise and got out of the car immediately to give support. The other two drivers also saw it and followed Chang Baji, who took the lead and reduced their fear.
At this very moment, Han Xu, Qin Sheng, and Hao Lei were confronting those gangsters. Since they weren’t targeting Han Xu, only one of them went to fight against him. The rest, however, focused on Qin Sheng. It was obviously weird.
But those gangsters didn’t imagine that Qin Sheng and Hao Lei were good at martial arts, paying dearly for their ignorance. Although Qin Sheng and Hao Lei were tipsy, they could still quite easily handle the situation.
On the other side, Wei Li and the other two people ran for a distance and then found that Han Xu, Qin Sheng, and Hao Lei were fighting. They were shocked and worried. Wei Li realized that he had lost a significant opportunity, but it was not too late to seize it. So he turned and ran back. He shouldn’t leave Han Xu and Qin Sheng there. Though it was really dangerous, he had to go for it. Since he went back, the other two people hesitated a while but finally went back, too.
When Chang Baji and the other two drivers arrived, the conflict had been almost settled down by Qin Sheng. Those gangsters were mostly lying on the ground.
Qin Sheng had asked Hao Lei to call the police. Other people took this opportunity to let out their anger then, especially Han Xu. He kicked the man who punched him a couple of times, hurting him enough to cry out loud. Those gangsters didn’t expect that they would suffer so much when they were told to deal with some drunk men. They had eight people, and were all tall and strong men. If they had been informed that some of them people were this capable, they wouldn’t have taken the job. Anyway, it was too late for regrets.
“Say, who the f*ck asked you to come, huh?” Han Xu asked with a raging voice, kicking those people hard. Wei Li and the others were all questioning the gangsters. They had to take revenge.
But nobody answered. They were just underlings sent to fight; they really had no idea who paid them. Even if their boss was there, it was a rule of the underworld to never reveal the client’s identity.
“They were not good enough to know who’s behind this.” Qin Sheng squinted, offering a confused look. If this was due to the conflict in that club, these people should have targeted Han Xu instead of him. But if they had been sent by his old foe, given his capabilities, he would have sent more powerful people.
Someone said in an angry tone, “Damn, it must be those people at the VICS. I will go and get those f*cking assholes and teach them a tough lesson.”
The people with Qin Sheng were all rich and powerful. It was not difficult for them to find someone in Beijing through their sources and backgrounds. But it was impossible this time. THAT one beind all of them had left in case of getting into any trouble. Lao Xue’s beautiful secretary was pretty good at handling things considering every detail. Since she had taken into account the possible threat of the family behind Qin Sheng, she had done everything she could to hide all the possible clues.
Wei Li walked down to Qin Sheng and said, “We were kind of scared, you know, everybody’s tipsy. Sorry for not helping you at the beggining.”
Qin Sheng patted Wei Li’s shoulder and said, “Don’t worry. It’s very normal for anyone to do that. We didn’t leave just because we knew we could handle them.”
Wei Li was not explaining for himself, but also for the other two people with him. They didn’t want to be looked down upon by Han Xu and Qin Sheng, which was uncomfortable. Wei Li felt relieved after Qin Sheng’s comforting words.
Just in a few minutes, two police cars arrived, and the two other cars followed then. All of them were taken to the police station for investigation. While on their way, Qin Sheng and those with him all called someone they knew at the police station to ask for help in case any more troubles popped up.
The head of the local police station on duty received a couple of phone calls from different people of high authorities. He hadn’t encountered such a serious situation, so he was feeling more or less anxious. It was rare but not surprising in Beijing, the political center of the country.
Qin Sheng and the others entered the police office and then they were led to the meeting room in a polite manner. They were asked a few questions to record their statements and left. It didn’t take them a long time.
It was half past one. So they just left to their respective homes and planned to talk more about the evening’s details the next morning.
