Chapter 818: Director Dong’s wife
Inspection First Office Director Office.
Dong Xuebing was in a good mood because he got to see Sister Xie again and release his urges. Secondly, he finally got backing in this new place. Xie Huilan was appointed the Deputy City Mayor and is a Deputy Bureau Director. She is considered one of the top leaders in the City Government. With her around, he can use his status as the Deputy Mayor’s husband. From a certain perspective, this status is more valuable than Inspection First Office Director. A District Party Committee Secretary might be holding a Division Chief rank. Still, he will not dare to offend or provoke a City Party Committee Secretary’s wife.
Dong Xuebing called Xie Huilan on her phone. “h.e.l.lo, Huilan. When did you arrive?”
Xie Huilan laughed. “Oh, your eyes are sharp. Did you see me?”
Dong Xuebing drank his tea. “How can I fail to see you? I was outside the blood donation buses when I heard the staff talking about you, and I saw you.” Xie Huilan will always make heads turn with her looks and figure.
Xie Huilan laughed. “I was exiting the highway when I SMS you. I just arrived not long ago.”
“You should at least inform me. Are you trying to surprise me?”
“I am the Deputy City Mayor. Why would I report everything to a lowly Inspection Office Director?”
“Hmph! Don’t be too full of yourself.” Dong Xuebing replied. “I will investigate you.”
Xie Huilan smiled. “Oh, I am under the Provincial Government, and the City Commission for Discipline Inspection cannot investigate me. Haha….”
Dong Xuebing was mad. “Fine…. You win.”
“Alright. They are waiting to announce my appointment. Let’s talk tonight, ok?”
“Ok. Remember to ask them for your apartment. I still don’t have an apartment and don’t want to live in the guesthouse.”
“Alright. I will check later in the afternoon.”
“Ok. Call me when you finish work.”
Dong Xuebing took out a small box from his pocket and took out his pink diamond ring to wipe it. This was his first time wearing his wedding ring after coming to Fen Zhou City. He looked at his hand and was satisfied. He took a taxi and returned to his guesthouse to pack his luggage. He took a quick lunch and loaded his luggage into his car.
Dong Xuebing drove back to the City Party Committee Building. He parked his car at the Commission for Discipline Inspection office.
After Dong Xuebing got out of his car, he saw Liang Xuan and Gao Wenrong walking toward the building.
“Director Liang, Director Gao.” Dong Xuebing locked his car and walked over. “Have you all taken your lunch?”
Gao Wenrong smiled. “Yes. We just came back from the cafeteria. I didn’t see you there.”
“Oh, I went back to grab something and had taken my lunch there.
Liang Xuan smiled. “No wonder we did not see you at the cafeteria.”
They walked upstairs to their offices together.
Suddenly, Liang Xuan gasped and stopped. She had noticed the ring on Dong Xuebing’s hand.
Gao Wenrong was puzzled. “What’s wrong, Director Liang?”
Liang Xuan looked at Dong Xuebing’s left hand. “This ring….”
Gao Wenrong looked at Dong Xuebing’s hand and got shocked. “Is this a diamond? Why is it pink and so big? Director Dong, this….”
Dong Xuebing smiled. “It’s my wedding ring.”
Gao Wenrong did not know if the diamond was real or fake. If it was real, it must be expensive.
Liang Xuan did not think so. She stared at the ring and said. “It’s a pink diamond. I remember watching a program on TV a while ago. It introduced a pair of pink diamond rings put up for auction. I think the starting bid was 100 million RMB and sold at almost 300 million RMB.”
Dong Xuebing did not wear his ring because he did not want to attract attention. He replied modestly. “This is a gift from my family, and I don’t know how much it cost. But I don’t think it cost 300 million RMB.” He admitted his ring was the one on TV.
Liang Xuan gasped. “With the auction company’s commission, it should be at least 290 million RMB. Director Dong, you are wealthy.”
Gao Wenrong was stunned. He did not expect this ring to be so expensive. Someone whose salary was only a few thousand RMB a month would not understand why people were willing to spend 300 million RMB to buy a pair of rings?
Liang Xuan and Gao Wenrong exchanged looks and felt it was pointless to compare themselves to others.
A Deputy Division Chief who owned a small car and a two-bedroom apartment are considered successful in Fen Zhou City. However, this was nothing when compared to Dong Xuebing. His watch, a Patek Philippe, was worth almost 2 million RMB, and his car cost almost 4 million RMB. He still has a 200 million RMB mansion in Beijing and wore a diamond ring worth more than 100 million RMB. Not forgetting, he still has almost 100 million RMB in his bank account. All his wealth was legitimate, and he did not try to hide it.

Liang Xuan had not seen or heard of any government staff this wealthy.
Zhu Zhu, Fei Fan, and other staff members greeted him.
Dong Xuebing smiled and chatted with them on their way downstairs.
In the lobby, Dong Xuebing saw Gao Wenrong, Liang Xuan, and a few Discipline Inspection Leaders looking outside. They were discussing something among themselves softly.
Dong Xuebing and his staff members walked over to greet them.
Liang Xuan saw Dong Xuebing and smiled. “Director dong, are you going back?”
“Yes. What happened?” Dong Xuebing looked outside.
Liang Xuan pointed outside. “The newly appointed Mayor Xie’s car is parked outside. I don’t know who she is waiting for. Look, it’s that Land Rover.”
Another leader asked. “Is she looking for our Secretary He? But why is she waiting here and not going upstairs?”
Gao Wenrong replied. “Maybe she is waiting for someone else.”
Everyone looked at the beautiful City Mayor in that Land Rover.
Suddenly, the Land Rover sounded horn, and the beautiful City Mayor alighted. She smiled at Dong Xuebing. “I got the keys to the apartment. Let’s go in my car and leave your Porsche here. I will send you to work on Monday.”
Dong Xuebing nodded and turned to Liang Xuan and the rest. “I am going back. See you all next week.”
The Leaders and staff were stunned and didn’t know what had happened.
Dong Xuebing remembered something and pointed at the beautiful City Mayor. “Oh, I forgot to introduce myself. This is my wife, Xie Huilan.”
Xie Huilan smiled. “Hi, Xuebing’s colleagues.”
Everyone exchanged looks. “#@[email protected]#%”
The new beautiful City Mayor is Director Dong’s wife….
Everyone was shocked.
