Director Zhao finally put his phone down after a long time and his blank mind suddenly remembered something.
Oh no! I’ve purposely arranged for the prisoners to beat up Su Qiubai23Su QiubaiProtagonist, a taxi driver with a powerful and mysterious navigation system. Sometimes written as the old driver in this novel. earlier.
He couldn’t be…
He suddenly recalled Chief Liu’s words and immediately felt as if his the bottom of his butt was on fire.
He rushed downstairs right away, without bothering to even put on his coat.
He imagined that the taxi driver would have already been beaten to the point that he would be too terrible to look at, but in actual fact, Su Qiubai was sleeping soundly in the cell.
Director Zhao sweated profusely as he ran into the detention center. Upon entering, he saw the policeman coming forward to greet him hesitantly.
“What happened? Was the taxi driver badly beaten up?”
A glance at the policeman’s posture made Director Zhao just feel his heart had just flown out of his body.
The policeman interrupted Director Zhao, but at that moment, he didn’t know how to describe the current situation in the cell.
“Is his leg broken? Or is it his arm?” Director Zhao anxiously asked while wiping off the cold sweat on his face.
“No, he’s doing quite well. In fact, he’s asleep.” Although it wasn’t very appropriate to say that, he finally managed to utter that sentence completely.
Upon hearing the policeman’s words, Director Zhao had already imagined another scene.
He must’ve been beaten till he collapsed. It’s over… I’m dead for sure today!
Director Zhao pushed the policeman aside and started running forward nervously.
However, he was stunned when he arrived at the entrance of the cell.
The situation in the cell was the same as how he had arranged it to be. Su Qiubai was indeed locked up with those prisoners.
But why was the scene so weird?
Why were all the strong and fierce prisoners staring at Su Qiubai from the farthest corner with pale faces, looking at him as if they were looking at a ghost?
And yet, that taxi driver… was really sleeping! In fact, he was already drooling; his snores could even be vaguely heard.
Director Zhao now understood the reason the policeman would say that the taxi driver was doing quite well.
He heaved a sigh of relief although he was puzzled with the way things had turned out.
Thank goodness, the driver is alright.
“Open the door.”
Director Zhao turned to the policeman and ordered before walking forward.
Perhaps it was too noisy outside as compared to the tranquility in the cell earlier, so Su Qiubai coincidentally opened his eyes.
When he pushed himself off the ground, dazed, the inmates all retreated.
Director Zhao wasn’t in the mood to care about them. Seeing that Su Qiubai was already awake, he hurriedly approached him.
“Little brother, are you awake?”
Still a little confused, Su Qiubai stared blankly at the middle-aged man who was looking at him with a smile.
For a moment he couldn’t remember if he was still in the police station.
“I’m awake… You are?” Su Qiubai casually asked while grinning.
“I’m Zhao Zhijing, the director here. I’m sorry for having mistakenly arrested you. You may leave now.”
Zhao Zhijing felt that he had never even smiled that politely to his own father before.
However, the policeman who stood behind him must have been the most surprised. He knew how arrogant the director was so he never expected that the director would take the initiative and reveal such an attitude.
It can’t be that… he knows about this jinx’s power?
But I haven’t had the time to report it yet!
The policeman felt very confused and so did Su Qiubai.
How could… everything resolve after a good sleep?
But Su Qiubai didn’t know that this middle-aged man was related to Director Li, so he was pleased to see the man treating him politely.
Su Qiubai also smiled.
“Can I really leave?”
He was still doubtful of the matter.
“Yes, you may leave right away… Were you wronged in any way?”
Director Zhao continued to grin and carefully added another sentence in the end when he suddenly recalled Chief Liu’s attitude.
Su Qiubai was stunned for a moment before nodding. “Excellent. Everyone was very friendly. The only problem is that the catered food might be bad which caused the inmates to have diarrhoea.”
His inexplicable words almost made Big Bear and the rest of inmates cry. Director Zhao also froze.
What does he mean? Why don’t I understand at all?
However, his facial expression didn’t reveal anything odd. The most important thing to do now was to quickly send this guy away, at least Chief Liu’s case would be settled.
“Your car is parked in the yard. You may leave now.”
Director Zhao was worried that Su Qiubai would repent, so he quickly returned to the subject.
Without declining, Su Qiubai nodded and walked towards the door.
Seeing that he was really about to leave, the happiest person was probably not Director Zhao, but rather the group of prisoners in the corner who had been traumatized.
Thank goodness, the Wen Shen was finally leaving!
[TLN: Wen Shen is a deity responsible for illness, plague and disease in Chinese folk religion.]
Director Zhao accompanied Su Qiubai all the way from the police station. After watching him get on his taxi to leave, his smile slowly faded.
At that moment, he felt relieved but also angry!
His anger, however, was not directed towards Su Qiubai, but to his witchy wife and her stupid brother!
If it wasn’t for him being lucky, and nothing happened to this guy so that he could leave with everything going smoothly, he would have finished!
Director Zhao couldn’t swallow his anger any longer so he went straight into his car and rushed to the hospital.
On the other hand, Su Qiubai gave Dong Jiawei a call right after leaving the police station.
Just as Su Qiubai guessed, she was already worried to death. She only relaxed after hearing much assurance from him.
Dong Jiawei originally wanted to pick him up from the police station immediately, but Su Qiubai stopped her. He was already driving home now, so there was no need to trouble her to drive him back.
But in the end, Su Qiubai still agreed to have lunch with her.
No kidding, he was still single. If he rejected to have lunch with a beauty… he must be crazy.
Su Qiubai went straight home after hanging up the phone as he had promised Xia Rongrong30Xia RongrongPresident/CEO of the Xia Group, one of the few wealthy and powerful company/family at Qinghe City to take care of her little white dog.
As for Wang Cai… It was surely fine.
Just as he had thought, he noticed the two dogs harmoniously chatting with each other when he entered his house.
Seeing him step into the house, Wang Cai didn’t respond but the little white dog ran towards him.
That made Su Qiubai feel quite accomplished. Someone else’s dog liked him so much for his burst of personal charm!
Soon after the little white dog said that it wanted to visit Xia Rongrong at the hospital, Su Qiubai suddenly realized the truth.
“No problem! Let’s go now!”
He nodded happily which made the little white dog feel a bit strange. Why does it seem to be happier than me?
Just as Su Qiubai got changed and prepared to leave, his mobile phone rang.
He took it out and saw that it was from his younger sister, Su Xiaoxiao31Su XiaoxiaoSu Qiubai's sister; also written as Xiao Xiao in this novel..
“Brother, did you beat up someone again?”
As soon as the phone was connected, Su Xiaoxiao’s helpless voice sounded from the other end.
Naturally, Su Qiubai denied swiftly.
“Have a look at the video on the internet. If that’s not you, then who would that be?”
Su Xiaoxiao wordlessly scratched her head before continuing. She inexplicably wanted to laugh. Her brother had always been like this since young. He wouldn’t admit it whenever he got into fights with others.
“Oh… that, haha… we are good friends! We were just fooling around! Have you eaten?”
Su Qiubai laughed awkwardly a few times; he anxiously wanted to change the subject.
“Don’t change the subject. Are you alright? Didn’t the police arrest you? I saw some comments stating that the police director is related to the director you’ve beaten up.”
Having said that, Su Xiaoxiao became a little nervous.
Su Qiubai was stunned for a moment. That police director is related to Director Li?
“I’m already released. Director Zhao let me out. He’s a good person!”
Su Qiubai spoke sincerely to his sister about his impression of Director Zhao.
If Director Zhao heard Su Qiubai’s impression on him, he would definitely be touched.
Well, he had no choice. If people whom you seldom contact called you up one after another within a few minutes asking you to let him go; and in the end, even your boss directly made you to quit your job, you… would also become a good person!
“Really?” Su Xiaoxiao was obviously suspicious.
“Don’t worry, I’m fine. Take care of yourself. That’s all for now… call me if you need anything, yeah?”
After that, Su Qiubai quickly hung up the phone.
Since young, my sister always likes to follow me everywhere. Whenever she found out that I was involved in fights with other people, she would tell on me to our parents, and I would be punished. Then, she would bring a stool to do her homework next to me…
Su Qiubai didn’t know why but he suddenly felt like laughing while reminiscing the past events. In fact, that time…was quite pleasant.
Su Qiubai picked up the white puppy as they went downstairs in the nick of time. Then, he drove directly to the hospital.
However, what he didn’t know was that the hospital… was already in chaos.
In the intensive care unit, Director Li was wrapped like a rice dumpling on the bed. Only his eyes were exposed; the rest of his body was wrapped in gauze.
Next to him was his sister, Li Xia. The two of them were obviously siblings; they looked so much alike. Li Xia was actually slightly chubbier than Director Li.
Li Xia felt hurt when she saw her brother in such critical condition. It was all because of that darned taxi driver, who caused him to be in this condition.
On the other hand, Director Li was already contemplating on whether he should continue to live or not. He recalled the accidents that had happened to him in the past few hours.
It was too frightening… I could even praise myself for surviving all those accidents!
At the exchange conference venue, a signboard fell on his head. When he went out to make a phone call, a football flew towards his head and he was knocked out. On the way to the hospital, the ambulance drove directly into a stinky drain because the driver was actually drunk.
He was still dazed when a nurse dragged him out from the drain like she was dragging a dead pig. However, that darned nurse accidentally slipped, kicking him into the drain once again.
They had no choice but to repeat the process. Initially, he thought that everything would be fine soon but in the hospital, when the nurses pushed the stretcher upstairs, the elevator had coincidentally broken down.
Several nurses could only carry the stretcher up the stairs. However, someone accidentally let go of the stretcher when they had almost reached the top of the stairs… there he rolled down the stairs.
So…when he woke up, he was completely paralysed; his whole body couldn’t move at all.
If the doctor didn’t tell him what had happened, he would have thought that someone had kidnapped him…
However, Director Li felt ecstatic at the thought that his brother-in-law would avenge him.
Just as he was thinking about his dear brother-in-law, his brother-in-law came in the ward.
But… what was he trying to do?
Director Li was astounded as he watched Zhao Zhijing kick his bed hard.
He cried after the violent shaking.
His bones that were just fixed… broke again…
