Chapter 158 – The Job Transfer is confirmed!
The next day.
Dong Xuebing listlessly finishes his breakfast, and Xie Hao came to his place.
After yesterday’s events, Dong Xuebing felt good to have vented his anger. But until Dong Xuebing leaves Senior Xie’s villa, he did not see Senior Xie again. He does not know what Senior Xie was thinking. Will Senior Xie take away his job? Was Sister Xie’s engagement called off? Dong Xuebing did not know what happened after he left. He was very worried. Now, he could finally ask someone. “Xiao Hao, why are you here? Did your sister ask you to come? What happened yesterday after I left?”
Xie Hao laughed and sat on the sofa. “Brother Dong, after you left yesterday, my Sis and I went to apologize to our grandfather. But my grandfather did not say a word. After that, my sister asks me to go back first. She will speak to our grandfather. I do not know the outcome.”
Yesterday, Dong Xuebing and Xie Hao had fought against the same enemy and had gotten closer. Dong Xuebing asked. “Then, why are you here?”
“Hehe, I am here to thank you.”
“Never mind. I am the one who started this. What’s there to thank?”
Xie Hao replied. “You are wrong. If you are not around, my sister will still have to get engaged with Wei Nan in two months. You saved my sister. Brother Dong, you are traffic. When I was at my sister’s place, I heard from your colleague that you can solve all sorts of trouble. She praised you like you are invincible. I still don’t believe it until yesterday’s game of chess…… I was shocked. Brother Dong, you are my idol. My goal in life is to be as capable as you. Give me an autograph!”
Dong Xuebing laughed. “Get lost!”
Xie Hao laughed. “Brother Dong, I really respect you. If it were someone else in yesterday’s circumstances, he would not even dare to utter a single word. Who is not scared of my grandfather? But you dare to stare and talk back to my grandfather because of my sister. You are even willing to give up your job.” A friend in need is a friend indeed. After yesterday’s incident, Xie Hao could tell Brother Dong will go all out to help his friends.
Dong Xuebing rolled his eyes. “Stop talking nonsense. I still don’t know how Senior Xie will punish me!”
Xie Hao smiled cunningly. “He might not punish you. My grandfather had said that if you can win him, he will agree to help you get your transfer and allow you to date, my sister. My grandfather will not go back on his words. You are my sister’s boyfriend now. Why will my grandfather punish you?”
Dong Xuebing almost fainted. “What, boyfriend? It’s fake. We were forced to say that. Your sister also did not take that seriously.”
“Hehe…… but my family members thought it is real. My Aunt called last night to ask me about you.”
Dong Xuebing was shocked. “Your Aunt? Sister Xie’s mother? What did she ask?” She is the wife of Beijing City Party Secretary!
Xie Hao replied: “She asked how you met my sister and what happened yesterday. I think my whole family knows about yesterday’s incident now.”
Dong Xuebing slapped his forehead. I’m dead. Sister Xie’s whole family will hate me now. I am in deep trouble!
Xie Hao stayed at Dong Xuebing’s apartment for a while until he received a call from his friends to go to a bar.
Dong Xuebing sat on his sofa in his living room to wait for Sister Xie’s updates. He even rejected a lunch invitation by Political Section Deputy Chief Liu. If this matter were not resolved, Dong Xuebing would not have the mood to do anything else. This concerns his future in the government, and it all depends on Senior Xie.
Ring, ring, ring. Dong Xuebing’s phone rang!
Dong Xuebing looked at the number. It was from Sister Xie. He quickly answered: “Sister Xie, how was it?”
“Hahaha, what are you talking about?” Xie Huilan asked.
Dong Xuebing replied: “Your engagement with Wei Nan. Is it canceled?”
“Let me tell you everything from the start. Haha, after you left with Xiao Hao yesterday, I went to speak to Grandpa about us dating. Grandpa did not agree or disagree with. But Wei Nan tried to meet my grandpa and was rejected. He refuses to leave. In the evenings, Wei Nan’s father came over and spoke to my grandfather. I do not know what they say, but Uncle Wei went back with Wei Nan with a bitter smile.”
Dong Xuebing thought for a while and asked: “That means your engagement is called off?”
“It should be. Xiao Dong, thank you for your help!”
“Don’t mention it.” Dong Xuebing was slightly relieved. But he still has one more worry. His job……
“As for your transfer……” Sister Xie seems to know what Dong Xuebing was thinking. She giggled and said: “My grandfather did not mention anything about it. But I tried to use my grandfather’s connection to try to get a transfer for you last night. My grandfather did not say anything, and I know that he had agreed. I helped you ask again this morning, and there should not be any problem with your transfer.”
It’s confirmed? I will be a Deputy Bureau Chief?
Dong Xuebing brighten up. This was the best news he heard. But after thinking for a while, he was still worried: “Sister Xie, I was very rude to Senior Xie yesterday. Err…… Is he still……? Will I be……” He was afraid Senior Xie will get back at him. But Senior Xie’s status was so high up. He should not get revenge with a nobody like Dong Xuebing.
“Haha, you had helped me yesterday. Even if anything happens in the future, I will protect you!”
“Ah…… That’s not what I mean.”
Xie Huilan paused for a second. “Oh, I forgot to tell you. Hehe, Xiao Dong, your hometown is Yantai County? When you told me that you want to be transferred to a County Public Security Station, I helped you asked that area, and there is really a Deputy Bureau Chief vacancy there. What do you think?”
Dong Xuebing jumped up from the sofa. “Sister Xie, will it be too troublesome for you?”
“No. If it is fine with you, I will confirm it?”
Of course, it’s fine! Dong Xuebing quickly thanked Xie Huilan!
Xie Huilan laughed. “You helped me put out a fire that had troubled me for more than a year. I should be the one thanking you. Alright. Just wait for the news. The official order should be out in a few days.”
After hanging up, Dong Xuebing still sat there excitedly. I will be transferred to Yantai County?
I will be returning home with honor!!!
Translator’s notes: A very short chapter compared to the previous few chapters. So, Xiao Hao is Xie Huilan’s cousin. In China, cousins addressed each other as brothers and sisters.
