Ace of the Dragon Division - chapter 503
Xu Cheng was forced into the laboratory.
The words of the four old men were, “You don’t have to worry about anything else, just focus on your experiment. Even if the sky falls down, we will push it back up. Even if there are missiles flying over, we won’t let it affect you the slightest. That girl you were worried about will be fine. If you need to eat or drink whatever, just say out of your window and Ye Ting will take care of it.”
Then, Ye Xiu, Zhou Xiaoming, and the others were banned.
“During this period, you guys are not allowed to disturb Little Cheng. His phone will be temporarily confiscated too. Family disciplinary punishments will be waiting for whoever dares step into the yard and interrupt him from working,.”
Then, Xu Cheng sang “Iron Window Tears” (TL note: a song you sing in jail) and went into the laboratory.
Ye Xiu wanted to retort his grandpa, “Grandpa, Xiaoming and the others don’t have to come, but this is my home. I can’t come in too?”
Right as he finished, his mom’s big palm came swinging. “The Ye Family has so many estates, you can’t find someplace to go for a few days?”
“Mom, I’m your son, why are you trying to kick me out too…”
Then, under his father’s stern look, Ye Xiu reluctantly began walking towards the door.
“Don’t leave, at least you have to stay and accompany me!” Xu Cheng shouted at Ye Xiu.
“Big Brother Cheng, my heart is with you. I will be right there when you come out.” Then, Ye Xiu left the manor without looking back.
At the hospital, how could Wang Laoji still be in any mood to stay? He directly asked to be discharged and left the hospital with his mom to go on the journey of saving his daddy.
They already called their uncle, yet it directly went from “Wait for my news” to “the number you have dialed is not available at the moment, please call again later.”
Then, the two of them went directly to Wang Jiancheng’s home, yet there was only his wife at home. Wang Jiancheng already went to hide somewhere else.
His wife also wasn’t being very welcoming and was kind of dodging them.
On the other side, Shen Yao called Xu Cheng’s number but didn’t connect, so she became very anxious as well. She thought Xu Cheng was still in jail. The whole thing was started by her, and now that they were in Yanjing, she was scared that Xu Cheng also didn’t have any connections. So, she knew that right now, the only one she could ask for help from was Wang Ji.
Imprisoned in her room, she compromised with her dad, “Dad, I will agree to try things out with that guy Wang Ji, alright?”
Shen Wansan snorted, “Dad won’t force you to be with that kind of man. This thing has already passed, so don’t bring up that kid Xu Cheng anymore. I won’t go ask for favors from the Wang Family too. At most, we just won’t move to Yanjing, and we will just expand to the west. As long as our base in Shangcheng is fine, we can just move on from this.”
Shen Yao said, “No, all in all, that guy saved your daughter. Without him, I don’t even know if I would’ve been violated by that [email protected] You are a credible businessman and a successful entrepreneur, you won’t do things without principles, right?”
“In the face of force majeure, principles are all sh-t.” Shen Wansan smacked his lips. “I can let you out of this room, but you have to come back to Shangcheng with me.”
“No!” Shen Yao said stubbornly, “I want to see Wang Ji. I will coax him, is that fine? I’ve decided to sacrifice myself for your business, didn’t you always wish that I would stop causing trouble for you? I will give Wang Ji a chance then. I know that if you decide to back out of the Yanjing area, the board members of your company will definitely grill you. So, I will help you out.”
“Are you trying to help out our business, or trying to help Xu Cheng get his freedom?” Shen Wansan rolled his eyes.
“Think whatever you want. If you don’t let me out, then I will jump out from this condo’s window!” Shen Yao threatened.
Shen Wansan really had no choice. That was just the personality of her daughter. In the end, he had the bodyguard go and open the door.
Shen Yao sprung out, picked up her dad’s car keys, and rushed out of the door.
Shen Wansan felt a bit uneasy and was worried that she would really go and challenge Wang Ji. Knowing his daughter well, he knew his daughter could very well do very crazy things. In the past during her shift as a stewardess, it was quite an often occurrence for her to slap passengers that tried to harass her, and Shen Wansan had to take care of it for his daughter or she would’ve been fired a long time ago.
Shen Wansan also got into the car and just let his daughter drive.
Shen Yao quitely drove towards Wang Ji’s home.
Wang Ji and his mom went through all the connections they had, and they realized that the people that their family was fairly close with were all taken away! Naturally, they were treated like the bearers of bad luck and were kicked out of their doors.
This time, with Wang Jianbing being taken away, many people were also implicated, and the Wang Family became like mice crossing the street, unwelcomed by everyone.
The mother and son went back home and sat down on their sofa in despair.
Just then, their doorbell rang.
The two of them were startled by it, thinking that it was people of the Discipline Inspection Commission coming to take them away as well. Wang Ji carefully peeked out of the peephole on the door and let out a sigh of relief when he saw it was Shen Yao and her dad. He immediately opened the door to let them in.
Only a day had passed, Shen Yao didn’t expect to see Wang Ji in such a bad state after such a short amount of time. He had dark circles around his eyes, messy hair, and he looked like a discouraged and helpless man on the street.
Especially the way Wang Ji looked at them, it was like a hungry homeless person seeing a big breadstick, like a person on the verge of death suddenly seeing a life-saving straw.
He immediately grabbed onto Shen Yao’s arm and said, “Thank goodness, Shen Yao! I beg you, I beg you, please save us! Save my family! My dad was ignorant and insensible, can you please save him?”
Seeing it was Shen Yao and her dad, Wang Ji’s mom immediately crawled over and grabbed onto Shen Yao’s leg and cried hysterically as she begged, “We were wrong! We didn’t know who he was! Our Old Wang is innocent, please save him! He’s already been taken away last night and hasn’t returned yet! Miss Shen, please save our family’s Old Wang! We know we are in the wrong, please try and talk to that Xu Cheng, okay? Please give us another chance, just one more chance! We promise there won’t be a next time!”
Shen Yao was dumbfounded, and so was Shen Wansan!
“What did you say?”
Wang Ji immediately said, “My dad was taken away by the Discipline Inspection Commission and hasn’t come back yet!”
Shen Wansan was shocked.
Shen Yao was confused. “What does it have to do with me? I’m here to ask what did you guys do to Xu Cheng? How come I couldn’t reach him by phone? Did you guys have him arrested?”
“We…” Wang Ji didn’t know what to say. He pulled his hair in frustration and said, “Shen Yao, I know for sure my dad got taken away because of Xu Cheng, can you try to talk to him? I know what kind of person my dad is, I’m not begging for him to stay in his old position, I just hope he can get out of this alive, please?”
“But I can’t reach Xu Cheng too.” Shen Yao was confused. “I thought your dad got someone to throw him into jail.”
“My dad indeed did that, and that’s because he’s stupid! But, not even an hour later, Xu Cheng was already released and picked up by someone. Then, after that, my dad got taken away and hasn’t come back since! But, I know, this time my dad is in deep trouble!” Wang Ji couldn’t be more anxious. “Shen Yao, it was all my fault, can you think of a way? Other than you, we really don’t know who else to ask for help anymore…”
“Impossible!“ Shen Wansan chuckled in determination. “I know that brat’s background! If your dad really got taken away because of him, then I would just be facking blind and stupid!”
Mommy Wang was still on her knees crying her heart out and shouting, “Please save our family’s Old Wang! We know we are wrong this time! Please save our family!”
