“Chairman Mu, how are you? I’m sorry for my tardiness! How can I help you?” The senior-looking chief walked up to shake the young man’s hand with a broad beam on his face .
The latter stood on the spot with two hands in his pants’ pockets . He shot a cold glance at the outstretched hand, showing no indication of wanting to shake it .
For this police chief, the man was even stingy with his greeting, and that gave the former a rude shock . The senior’s face instantly displayed his awkwardness and embarrassment .
The policeman looked down and saw his fingertips were lightly coated in dust . He hastily wiped his palms on his uniform and continued smilingly . “My apologies for the delay! Please forgive our tardiness . ”
It was only after he had wiped his fingers clean that the young man was willing to hold his hand with a light touch . His ceremonial handshake was way superficial when he did not bother to squeeze his hand in return .
However, this was enough to please the police chief . The fact that he could shake hands with Disheng’s CEO, known to be aloof and detached, in front of so many people was a feat itself .
The old man was highly graced by this act of young chap!
Earlier, the chief was having a meeting at the police headquarters when he received a call from his superior . When he was told that a VIP was at one of the police stations under his jurisdiction, he immediately skipped the meeting and rushed to the said station .
“My apologies, indeed! I was having a meeting at the headquarters just then… and missed your arrival! What can I do for you here?” asked the policeman, the smile not leaving his face .
Standing at one side, Yun Yecheng watched the senior’s fawning behavior with fear and surprise, but more than that, he was stumped by the latter’s snobbery .
Earlier, he had tried directing some questions to the chief, but the latter had totally blindsided him . This uniformed individual was only interested in speaking to his son-in-law . He made it obvious that the elder Yun was not worth his time .
Mu Yazhe simply cut short the chief’s courtesies and went straight to the point . “My father-in-law has been summoned here to assist with identifying a body . He’s been waiting the entire afternoon, but no officer has attended to him even now . Not a procedural action, be it assisting with the autopsy or taking a statement, has been started so far . I didn’t know that police stations under your charge could be this busy!”
His cool and detached verbiage was full of judgement .
The senior officer broke out in a cold sweat as he turned stiffly to look at Yun Yecheng standing beside him .
How can this average-looking, late, middle-aged man be the father-in-law of the famous CEO?
It was a big blow to him that sent his head spinning!
The chief hastily approached the elderly man; a wide smile, like a blooming flower, spread across his face at the same time as he asked with utmost respect, “I’m so sorry—so very sorry for making you wait! I didn’t know that you are Chairman Mu’s father-in-law . He he! May I have your name, please?”
“I’m Mr . Yun; how are you doing?” The old man tried to hide his displeasure as he returned the formality .
“Please, may I ask why you are here…”
“The police summoned me here . They told me that there’s a body retrieved from the sea that they wanted me to assist with identifying . ”
The police chief turned solemn the moment he heard the explanation .
“A body? Has a record been filed?”
“I don’t have the details yet . I rushed over the moment I received the call from the police . I don’t know the police procedure at all, so I’ve been waiting anxiously here . ”
The police chief immediately replied, “We’ve been slow; I deeply apologize! Please follow me; I’ll get the officer who’s in charge of this case to speak to you!”Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
