Chapter 349 – The Police are here?
Dong Xuebing dragged his tired body back to the County Party Committee Quarters.
Dong Xuebing opens the door and quickly enters his apartment. He wants to take a hot shower to relax. He had spent the whole day thinking of dealing with Lui Dafa and pulling the rest of the subordinates over to his side. He felt today is more exhausting than his previous year’s work. Dong Xuebing is not good at using brains, but he knows he needs to overcome this or become a good leader.
But when Dong Xuebing stepped into his apartment, he was stunned.
There was a strong insecticide smell in his apartment and even stings his eyes.
Dong Xuebing slapped his forehead as he remembered he asked the guards to get pest control to clear the cockroaches in his apartment this morning. The insecticide smell is strong, but it is effective against pests in the apartment. But the smell is too bad. Dong Xuebing felt he will die after five minutes in there.
Fine… this apartment is unlivable for the next few days.
Dong Xuebing got to look for a hotel.
Dong Xuebing packed his clothes and work documents before driving off.
For convenience sake, Dong Xuebing drove to the County People’s Square. He found a hotel not far from the Investment Promotion Agency. The hotel is seven stories high and does not have any stars. It’s just a small hotel that is cleaner. Dong Xuebing entered the hotel and booked a room at the front desk. His room is located on the sixth floor, and he immediately went to take a shower.
Taking a hot shower can remove fatigue fast.
Dong Xuebing dried himself and walks out of the bathroom when he noticed his phone is ringing.
Dong Xuebing walks over quickly. “Hello, Mayor Xie?”
“Hmmm… are you still at work?” Xie Huilan laughed. “Is it convenient to speak now?”
“Yes… I had just finished work. What is it?”
“Nothing. I just want to ask you, how’s your first day at work? Haha…”
As someone from Xie Huilan’s faction, he wants to voice his frustration and ask her for advice. But as her future husband, Dong Xuebing, doesn’t want to look back in front of her. He doesn’t want to tell her that he is facing problems at work. “It’s fine. Everything is proceeding smoothly, and I had established some authority.” What Dong Xuebing said is true.
“Good to hear this. I was still worried that you cannot adapt to the work there.”
“Hehe… how is that possible?”
“Good to hear that.” Xie Huilan paused for a second and continued. “You must watch out and be careful recently. I heard someone among the County Leaders is going to make things difficult for you. He wants to make it as a warning for you and stop your arrogance. I think there should be someone within your Investment Promotion Agency coming out to oppose you directly. The purpose of this leader is to make things difficult for you. Just watch out.”
Dong Xuebing frowned. “Is it Xiang Daofa and his men? Why are they trying to go against me?”
“You are not that great for them to oppose you.” Xie Huilan said. “They are targeting me.”
Dong Xuebing understood what was going on. He is on Xie Huilan’s faction. His win against Lui Dafa is Xiang Daofa’s first loss to Xie Huilan during the Party Committee Meeting. That’s where the grudge started. If Dong Xuebing is embarrassed by his subordinate, Xie Huilan will be disgraced. This is like giving a slap to Xie Huilan indirectly and will affect her influence. The Investment Promotion Agency is currently the battlefield between both factions.
Dong Xuebing is furious. “Did they think I am a pushover?”
Dong Xuebing immediately thought of Lui Dafa. Lui Dafa and Dong Xuebing are chess pieces of the County’s leaders. No wonder Lui Dafa is full of smiles in the afternoon. The people behind him had promised him something. Damn! These people are too much.
Xie Huilan asked. “How is it? Can you handle it by yourself?”
Dong Xuebing replied without thinking. “Don’t worry. If I cannot handle a few of my subordinates, I will be too ashamed to face you.”
“Having confidence is good, but don’t be optimistic. This time, it is the County’s leaders who are playing tricks and backing them. You will be facing them alone…”
Dong Xuebing interrupted. “I will be fine!”
Xie Huilan nodded. “Alright. Just call me if you need help. Remember, this is not your problem. Their target is me.”
Dong Xuebing corrected Xie Huilan. “They are targeting us!”
Xie Huilan laughed. “Haha… right. They are targeting us.”
“Ok. Leave the Agency matters to me.” Dong Xuebing firmly replied. “I will deal with the ones who dare to create trouble for me!” If it is only Dong Xuebing’s problem, he can still wait. But now, someone is backing Lui Dafa to create problems for him and even want to use this to attack Sister Xie. How can Dong Xuebing tolerate this? Xie Huilan is his woman, and they are being bullied by these people. F**k! I will not hold back against you all! I will make sure you all regret for the rest of your life!
After hanging up, Dong Xuebing starts to think of a way to retaliate.
Dong Xuebing needs to find a way to destroy Lui Dafa and thinks about how Lui Dafa… or those people from the County Party Committee will create trouble for him.
Ring… ring… ring… Dong Xuebing’s phone rang.
Dong Xuebing answered. “Hello, I’m Dong Xuebing.”
“Chief, I’m Xiao Luo.” Luo Haiting said. “We had finally finished the promotion materials. Do you want to see it?”
Dong Xuebing had forgotten about this. He needs to present the materials to Deputy Mayor Zhao Xinglong tomorrow. He might even need to discuss it with the County Government. This is very important, and he had instructed Luo Haiting to show him once it is completed. “Alright. I will return to the Agency now.”
“No…” Luo Haiting replied. “How can I make you travel? I will bring it over to you.”
Dong Xuebing had wanted Guo Panwei to collect it. Still, Panwei has just started work this afternoon and doesn’t know anything about the County. If the materials need amendments, Dong Xuebing will need Luo Haiting to correct it. “Alright. Sorry to trouble you. Oh… I am not staying at the County Party Committee Quarters. Come over to the third street behind Commercial street. There is a Jia De Hotel. I will wait for you at the entrance. It is not far from the Agency and only a few minutes’ drives.”
Luo Haiting paused for a second and replied softly. “Ok. I will go over now.”
After hanging up, Dong Xuebing dried his hair and got dress before going downstairs.
After a while, a middle-aged woman appeared. She is riding an electric bicycle and parked in front of Dong Xuebing. Luo Haiting looks slightly embarrassed and uneasy as she keeps looking around. She stuttered. “Chief… the documents…” She quickly pulled out a document and two brochures from her bag.
Dong Xuebing was surprised by Luo Haiting’s reaction, and he realized they are standing outside a hotel. He immediately knows why Luo Haiting is so nervous. Sigh… I should have considered this carefully. Asking her to come to look for me at a hotel will give her the wrong idea. But you are also quite imaginative. You are already in your forties, and do you think I will want to do anything to you? Dong Xuebing explained. “My apartment is infested with roaches, and the pest control had sprayed insecticides this morning. So, I am staying here temporarily. Hmmm… how about we go to my car to look at the documents?” Dong Xuebing is embarrassed to invite her upstairs.
Luo Haiting looked at Dong Xuebing and hesitated. “It is too dark in the car. Errr… let’s go upstairs.”
Dong Xuebing looks at the carpark, and it is quite dark there. “… alright.”
Luo Haiting followed behind Dong Xuebing to his room on the sixth floor.
Once they are in the room, Dong Xuebing sat down and start reading the document.
Luo Haiting looked at Dong Xuebing and the surroundings before taking off her coat slowly. She placed her coat on the backrest of a chair and let her hair down before sitting down beside Dong Xuebing and look at him nervously.
Dong Xuebing continued to read the document without looking at Luo Haiting.
Luo Haiting was relieved and knew she might have misunderstood Chief Dong. His explanation about his apartment should be true.
When Luo Haiting comes to meet Dong Xuebing, she thought Dong Xuebing wants to bed her. If it is someone else, Luo Haiting will not overthink. Although she is forty-years-old and had maintained her looks well, guys in their twenties should not be interested in her. But she had heard rumors that Dong Xuebing’s helper is much older than him, and he likes mature women. Furthermore, Dong Xuebing had asked her to meet him in a hotel.
Luo Haiting wonders if Chief Dong really wants to touch her, how she should react.
Letting someone around Luo Haiting’s child age f**k her is too embarrassing. Luckily, Chief Dong does not have this intention.
After a while, Dong Xuebing finished reading the document.
“Are the materials fine?” Luo Haiting asked.
Dong Xuebing nodded and replied. “It’s alright, and both versions are fine. I think we will use the first version. Help me print a few copies and send it to the County Government tomorrow.”
When Luo Haiting was about to leave, they heard footsteps outside.
Knock… knock… knock…! Someone is knocking on Dong Xuebing’s hotel room’s door loudly.
“Open up! Police! Someone had reported prostitution activities here!”
