No matter what hexagrams he received, Zhao Yu had to complete his work today. At nine o’clock in the morning, Zhao Yu came to the main conference room of the Criminal Division to attend the awards ceremony.
As Division Chief Jiao had said, the guests were all high-ranking people. In addition to certificates and medals, Zhao Yu also received several bonuses that had been provided jointly by several departments.
He roughly calculated it, and his rewards added up to more than 100,000 yuan. He had a good harvest this time! Moreover, the Division Director told him that the bonus was only an incentive, and that the real case-solving bonus was still being approved!
Zhao Yu had become accustomed to being in the spotlight, so he talked and laughed at ease at the ceremony, thus successfully completing his task. Later, he went into a senior salon with the high level officials and met many new friends. However, he felt that these friends were just general acquaintances, so were most likely not who the Li hexagram had referred to.
It was not until midday that a car from the Jinping Police Station took Cui Lizhu to the Personnel Department of the Criminal Division. In the past few days, not only had Cui Lizhu lost a lot of weight, but she also looked much more pale than before. Zhao Yu knew that she must still be concerned about Tao Xiang.
It was said that Tao Xiang had been prosecuted by the police for several thefts, which meant that he probably would spend the rest of his life in prison. However, Tao Xiang’s mental status was bad, so he was still staying in a special detention center, while being watched by the local police.
“Hey, little girl, how are you doing? Are you okay?” After seeing Cui Lizhu, Zhao Yu uncuffed her, then whispered in her ear, “Don’t forget what you promised me before!”
Cui Lizhu gazed affectionately at Zhao Yu, then hesitated for a long time before she said weakly, “I… I want to eat mutton kebabs!”
“Ah!” Zhao Yu was surprised at first, then laughed and patted her on the shoulder and said, “That’s not a problem!”
Hearing this, everyone laughed. Wu Xiumin had a good relationship with Cui Lizhu, and she immediately went to embrace her and comfort her.
At this time, Zhao Yu looked at his watch, then went to Jiao Guofeng to say goodbye to her. Unexpectedly, Division Chief Jiao stood in front of him, made a gesture for him to stop, then said with a smile, “Zhao Yu, Cui Lizhu is here… But there’s one more…”
“What?” Zhao Yu didn’t understand, so he asked, “What do you mean?”
“Since you solved the Headless Female Corpses Case, your fan numbers have soared. Many police officers wanted to join your Special Investigation Group!” Division Chief Jiao took out a document and said, “So, I helped you choose one of these people. She will be the new deputy team leader of your group! I believe she can help you solve many cases in the future.”
“What the heck is a deputy group leader? You let a new guy be a deputy leader? Is this guy helping you spy on me?” Zhao Yu was apparently not satisfied with this new addition to his team.
Then, Zhao Yu pretended to be cool as he said, “Well… Okay. I have no objection to adding new people. To tell you the truth, I have long wanted to add more members. I was just worried that there were not enough funds. But, why didn’t you tell me about this earlier? May I not choose one myself? The person you picked may not suit me, and… Um… Um…”
Zhao Yu was trying to convince her, but suddenly, from the main entrance, a very familiar person appeared!
“Ah!” When Zhao Yu saw this person, his mouth was wide open in surprise. The new member was walking towards him, wearing a graceful cool bob hairstyle.
It was Miao Ying! At this moment, Zhao Yu realized that the surprise that Miao Ying had told him about on the phone before was actually her!
“Oh, there she is!” Division Chief Jiao understood what was going on between Zhao Yu and Miao Ying, but still gave a formal introduction, “This is your new deputy team leader!”
“Oh…” When Ran Tao saw such a beautiful lady coming their way, he could not help but gasp and then give a low whistle.
He then whispered to Zeng Ke, “Dude, we won the grand prize! This woman is more beautiful than that assistant! I really love our team now!”
It turned out that, although Zhao Yu had made such a big scene in New Zealand, Ran Tao, Zeng Ke, and the others did not know about Miao Ying. After all, Zhao Yu had never said anything to them about her.
Although Ran Tao’s voice was low, his words were still heard by Wu Xiumin and Cui Lizhu, who both pouted at the same time. Wu Xiumin murmured “gross” and Cui Lizhu gave him the middle finger in secret.
“Miao Ying, this is the leader of the Special Investigation Group, who is also a famous detective, Zhao Yu!” Division Chief Jiao introduced them to each other, pretending that two too had never met before.
“Hello, group leader.” Miao Ying came over to Zhao Yu and greeted him in a very polite manner. She then extended her right hand to shake hands with Zhao Yu.
However, Zhao Yu pulled Miao Ying into his arms and kissed her directly on the spot, without saying a word! For a moment, everyone was shocked!
Ran Tao’s eyes were wide open, while Zeng Ke was shaking all over, and his mobile phone fell to the ground. Wu Xiumin and Cui Lizhu were also shocked. Division Chief Jiao blushed slightly, while covering her face with her hands in a slightly embarrassed manner.
Miao Ying did not resist at all. She was intoxicated by his kiss. They kissed for a full 10 seconds!
“Em…” Ran Tao thumped his chest and stamped his feet, then coughed violently. He then reached for Zeng Ke and said, “Boss is so cool!”
Zeng Ke agreed. “Yes! Is this love at first sight?”
“You two idiots!” Wu Xiumin said to Zeng Ke and Ran Tao. “Can’t you see? They apparently know each other already!”
“Oh…” Cui Lizhu then recalled something and said, “It turns out that she is Zhao Yu’s secret girlfriend! What a perfect couple!”
As their kiss finally ended, Zhao Yu said to Bureau Chief Jiao, “Leader, I’m very satisfied with this deputy group leader. Thank you!”
