The person who opened the door was Wang Yu. When she saw Ye Qian she gawked in surprised. There a trace of excitement flashed across her face before quickly turning back to a dark expression.
Ye Qian was thinking that he hadn’t seen Wang Yu in a very long time. Seeing her now made him feel a little guilty. It was not that Ye Qian did not understand her show of feeling last time, perhaps it was just because they were walking on two different paths that would occasionally intersect, but after that point they were now getting further and further away from each other. “We’ve come to see Secretary Wang.” Ye Qian said with a smile.
“My father isn’t back yet. Come inside and have a seat.” Wang Yu said and let Ye Qian and Jack enter. “Sit. What do you want to drink?” Wang Yu asked Ye Qian after shutting the door.
“Anything is fine!” Ye Qian replied.
Shortly after, Wang Yu brought over two cups of tea and placed them in front of them. Then she took a seat on the side. After looking at Ye Qian, Wang Yu looked at Jack. She didn’t say anything, merely looking in his direction. Naturally, Jack did not say anything either. Ye Qian didn’t know what to say so the time passed with somewhat dully.
Ye Qian didn’t know how he felt about Wang Yu. The first time he met her did not leave a good impression on him, he found her to be spoiled and unreasonable. But later on his feelings about her changed. Everytime he saw her he couldn’t help teasing her, finding her angry appearance very cute. After that, during the incident with Qin Yue, Ye Qian was not an idiot so he noticed Wang Yu’s feelings for him; When he thought about how she and Qin Yue argued that time, he couldn't help smiling. This girl was really sincere, but a gingers get spicier with age, Wang Yu was no match for Qin Yue. Up until the moment he discovered Ouyang Tianming framing him, it could be said that Wang Yu already displayed all of her affection. Ye Qian thought long about his past behavior, the way he treated her in the prison might give her the wrong ideas. But Ye Qian didn’t know why he did those things either. Perhaps he also liked Wang Yu that way in his subconscious.
“It’s been a while, have you been well?” Ye Qian finally broke the silent and said.
“Same old, same old. You?” perhaps because they hadn’t seen each other in a long time, the two of them were somewhat unfamiliar.
“Me? Still okay. I’m a little not used to getting arrested by you.” Ye Qian said with a laugh. Ye Qian felt that as a man he had to make the first move. He wanted to break this awkward atmosphere so he jokingly said this.
Wang Yu glared at him and said, “Grudge-holder, that was work.”
Ye Qian laughed and said, “I was just kidding. Let me tell you something form the heart. Among the police you are the most righteous that I have seen. I hope you continue to be steadfast in your righteousness. After all, society needs a person like you to truly protect the people.”
“Famous last words. If you really feel that way then don’t get into trouble.” Wang Yu said. “Shanghai has not been peaceful these past few days. Even though I don’t know what you actually do, I still hope you be careful. Don’t commit a crime on my watch, I won’t go easy on you.”
Ye Qian laughed and said, “Can you really do that?”
After he said this Ye Qian felt that it was not right, how could he be saying such flirtatious things. He wanted to give himself two slaps on the face. As expected, after Ye Qian said these words, Wang Yu stared in surprise and then became silent. The atmosphere because a somewhat awkward once again.
Jack drank his tea, minding his own business, as if he completely did not hear the two people talking.
Ye Qian didn’t know what to say to break the silence. He smiled towards Wang Yu, embarrassed, and drank a mouthful of tea. Wang Yu looked at Ye Qian with a strange expression and then rose and said, “My father might be late in coming back. You can wait here, I’ll go upstairs and rest.” She looked like she had something to say that she was holding back, like she was reluctant to leave, and seemed a little sullen. Ye Qian couldn’t understand it.
“Oh!” Ye Qian said blankly, he didn’t know what to say.
He watched Wang Yu go up the stairs and then regained his emotions, calmly sitting. Jack looked at Ye Qian and smiled faintly and said, “Boss, you womanizer.”
Ye Qian gawked then gave Jack hard look and said, “Rubbish.”
“Haha. Don’t tell me you don’t see it, this girl likes you.” Jack said.
“I really don’t see it.” Ye Qian said.
“Keep pretending, Haha!” Jack guffawed.
Ye Qian declined to comment and just shrugged, not giving further explanation.
Not long after, Wang Ping arrived. Behind him was Li Hao. This fellow was already promoted by Wang Ping to become the provincial head of Shanghai’s Ministry of Public Security. It could be considered a favor, a meteoric rise.
“Brother Ye, did you wait long? Haha, there was quite a lot a of work, please forgive me.” Wang Ping laughed and smiled at Ye Qian as he sat across from him.
“Of course, Secretary Wang, you are too hard on yourself. You are carrying a heavy burden for the government and the people.” Ye Qian said flatteringly. Even though he knew his words sounded fake, there is no helping it. This was a time to kiss ass, even though he didn’t want to fawn over Wang Pin.
“Er Ge!” Li Hao called out to Ye Qian.
Ye Qian nodded and said, “When I have time I’ll go visit you. Bring your wife and kid, Laodie is also concerned about them.”
“Yes, I understand, Er Ge!” Li Hao said.
Wang Ping chuckled and said, “Brother Ye, who is this? It won’t do not to introduce us.”
“Oh, where are my manners.” Ye Qian said hurriedly, “Jack, this is the person I have been talking to you about for a while now, our Shanghai’s Municipal Committee Secretary Wang Pin. His political track record is shining, his work is firm, a rare good official. In the future you should get close to Secretary wang.”
“Secretary Wang, pleased take good care of me.” Jack stood up and bowed respectfully and said. But his bow was not very deep, only a slight bend for appearances. After all, in Jack’s eyes, Wang Ping was not that worthy of respect.
“Sit, sit, no need for that. It’s just us. Haha!” Wang Ping said with a laugh.
“Secretary Wang, this is my good friend. And also the legal representative of the Ironblood Security Firm.” Ye Qian said.
“Ironblood Security Firm?” Wang Ping stared blankly, his eyes couldn’t help turning to Li Hao as he said this in surprise.
