Monday, June 18 Afternoon
Wang Jun is lying on the bed. What a bad day. He tried to see Erwan. No luck, he was not there and the nanny couldn’t tell him anything. Bad relations with Yinghua. Since the death of Lao Huang he has hardly seen her. She is constantly with her aunt. Suddenly the door opens. She enters! He gets up to meet her. She looks upset.
"What‘s up Yinghua?"
She crosses the room and says nothing. Then she starts crying.
"Over! Everything is over!"
He does not understand.
"But what's going on?"
She looks at him suddenly. He tries to embrace her, but she rejects him violently.
Leave me alone. You were a moment in my life, and it was short."
Wang Jun is stunned. At least she owes him an explanation.
"You want a divorce, right? But at least tell me why!"
She stands up. Looks in a fury! She scares him. He instinctively retreats.
"Yinghua! At least tell me what’s happened."
A torrent of words ensues. She was called by the new leader. She has been fired from the police and has to leave her apartments. Wang Jun is returning to traffic. She has no choice because otherwise she will end up in a labor camp, or worse sentenced to death for corruption. Wang Jun has difficulty in understanding. She has finished, she takes her bag and leaves the apartment. He follows her and takes her by the arm.
"Plainly speaking! What can we do?"
She emerges from his grasp and in such a fury:
"You do not understand asshole! It's over between us! I’m going to live with my aunt and you're nothing. I have a letter for you!"
She hands him a letter.
He takes the letter and begins to read. It is his orders for transfer to traffic control. He is assigned to the District precinct of Jianguomen. Assigned to that major intersection. He starts the following day.
Mona slams the door behind her. He is alone!
He picks up the phone and calls his friend Li Changlin.
He's lucky. He is there. He briefly explains the situation.
“Well, okay. Take all your belongings and just come. I know someone who will be happy for you to come live and with us. She likes you a lot. When do you start?"
Wang Jun explains the situation.
"Well, old chap, you're going to go a long way to work. Have you got your bike back?"
"No, says Wang Jun, unfortunately! It'll take me hours of bus! It's better than the Laogai! I'll explain!"
He hangs up and begins to gather his belongings. Then he remembers something. He goes to the safe, opens it carefully. There’s a little money left. That will enable him to survive over the next days. Then he retrieves the box with Glocks and ammunition.
That, he says, I’m not leaving! It can always be useful.
As soon as he finishes packing, he calls a taxi.
"Five minutes sir!"
He leaves the apartment and sends down his luggage. The taxi is already waiting downstairs. He is afraid of meeting Guan Kai. But no, the guy is not there. He gets into the car. He closes the door. The driver starts off. He gives him the address of Li Changlin. The whole story is bullshit.
