Chapter 68 – The new colleague is like a fierce bandit

Looking at the supervisor’s smile, He Gu’s whole body stiffened for a moment.

In He Gu’s impression, the supervisor was mostly expressionless, almost never seen him smile.

Now, the supervisor smiled at He Gu, but it felt eerie no matter how you looked at it.

“Early today, aren’t you?”

The supervisor took the initiative to break the silence.

He Gu also coughed and nodded, “Ah, not that early.”

The supervisor patted He Gu’s shoulder, “I was just about to call you on the intercom, and here you are.”

“Good, we have a new colleague in our team tonight, let’s have dinner together.”

He Gu’s heart tightened at the words, and he declined, “Ah, but I just ate…”

As he spoke, He Gu glanced across the tar road, and the black cat that had just been there was gone.

The supervisor also followed He Gu’s gaze and glanced over there, “Is there something over there that caught your attention?”

He Gu’s heart tightened, shaking his head, “No.”

The supervisor put away his smile and said lightly, “It’s the rule that the old colleagues on duty have to treat the new colleague to dinner on their first day in the team.”

“Even if you’ve eaten, you still have to sit down and finish this meal with him.”

If this were on Blue Star, He Gu would have suspected that the supervisor was addicted to free meals and wanted to take advantage of him.

But this was in the world of strange stories.

Although He Gu was unwilling, he finally nodded, “Okay, I’ll go get food for you guys.”

The supervisor was finally satisfied and patted He Gu’s shoulder, “Go, get some food, the new colleague might be able to help you today.”

He Gu looked at the supervisor strangely, said nothing more, and turned and walked into the cafeteria.

Soon, He Gu got two portions of food and found a table to sit down. Each portion of food had a piece of “medicine skin.”

After waiting for about five or six minutes, the supervisor finally led a fat man in a green work uniform.

This fat man was at least 1.9 meters tall, tall and strong, walking like a bear, with a strong sense of oppression.

And this fat man had a fierce look on his face, giving off a feeling of a “big brother” on the street.

Seeing the supervisor leading such a fat man to the table, He Gu had a vague feeling of unease.

After the two sat down, the supervisor introduced as usual, “This is 414, transferred from another department to fill our vacancy.”

After that, the supervisor pointed to He Gu and said to the fat man, “This is 444 I told you about before, who just arrived a few days ago, also considered a newcomer. But since you just joined our team today, you have to call him senior.”

The fat man looked at He Gu with a smile that seemed to be smiling but not, “Hello, senior.”

This fat man looked too fierce, even when he smiled, he had a fierce feeling.

He Gu’s scalp tingled, nodding in response.

After the supervisor finished introducing the two, he stopped talking and started eating with his head down.

After seeing “medicine skin” in his own plate, He Gu paused slightly, looked up at He Gu, then lowered his head and ate heartily.

The fierce-looking 414 also started eating, and when he saw the “medicine skin” on his plate, he showed a hint of excitement on his face, looking up at He Gu with a meaningful smile.

He Gu frowned slightly, turned his head away and didn’t look at him.

So, the supervisor and the fat man 414 ate quickly with their heads down, while He Gu sat on the side waiting boredly.

After about ten minutes, the two almost simultaneously put down their chopsticks.

The supervisor wiped his mouth with a piece of paper and said lightly, “Let’s go, it’s almost time to go to work.”

After that, the supervisor took the lead and walked out, with He Gu and 414 following.

On the way to the cafeteria, the supervisor and 414 walked side by side in front, chatting and laughing from time to time.

He Gu was left behind by the two, feeling an indescribable sense of unease.

They walked all the way to the inner warehouse area, and He Gu went into the No. 44 warehouse as usual.

The supervisor led 414 into the adjacent No. 45 warehouse.

He Gu sat at the door, his right eyelid twitching uncontrollably, and the feeling of unease in his heart grew stronger.

After a few minutes, He Gu heard voices outside the door, as if the supervisor and 414 were standing at the door of the No. 45 warehouse next door.

414’s rough voice sounded, “Leave it to me, don’t worry.”

Then the supervisor’s low voice sounded, “Be careful, don’t capsize in the gutter.”

A few seconds later, footsteps approached, and the supervisor walked into the No. 44 warehouse with an expressionless face.

Walking to He Gu’s table, the supervisor said lightly, “Tonight is 414’s first time working in our warehousing department, listen for any movement next door.”

“As usual, if you hear any special movement, go and take a look, don’t ignore it, otherwise, if he has a problem, you will be dealt with too.”

Like a robot, the supervisor finished speaking expressionlessly, turned and walked out.After stepping outside the door, he paused and turned back, giving He Gu a smirk: “Oh, and remember to take your medicine on time when it’s due.”

With that, the supervisor walked out without looking back.

Watching the supervisor’s retreating figure and thinking about the unusual signs of tonight, He Gu felt increasingly uneasy.

For the rest of the time, He Gu was on edge, restless, feeling as if something was going to happen tonight.

Time passed by, second by second.

Before he knew it, it was already 21:50.

At that moment, a tall figure suddenly entered Warehouse No. 44.

The fierce-looking 414 walked in, flashing a bandit-like grin at He Gu: “Bro, isn’t your night shift too dull, just staying in the warehouse until dawn?”

He Gu glanced at him warily and said indifferently, “Goods will be delivered at night. Didn’t the supervisor tell you?”

414 waved his hand with a laugh: “He did… but this shift is just too boring.”

While speaking, 414 pulled out a deck of playing cards from his pocket: “How about it, wanna play a few hands of poker for some fun?”

He Gu frowned and shook his head: “No need.”

“The supervisor said we can’t leave our posts during the night shift. You should go back to your position.”

But 414 nonchalantly waved his hand: “I’m just at the doorway, I can get to the next room in no time if something comes up, it’s no trouble.”

He Gu replied with a cold face: “But you’re disturbing me here.”

414 was slightly taken aback by the response, then laughed heartily like a bandit, stepped back a few paces to stand outside the door, then took out a cigarette, lit it, took a deep drag, and exhaled the smoke: “I’m standing here now, you can’t control me, right?”

Seeing this, He Gu felt annoyed but didn’t find it appropriate to say anything more and didn’t bother with him any longer.

A few minutes later, that headache and nausea hit him again.

He Gu knew it was time to take his medicine.

At the doorway, 414 took out a small pill bottle, took a pill, and chewed it with a “crack crack,” then looked at He Gu with a smirk: “Bro, it’s time, aren’t you going to take your medicine?”
