Awakening - Chapter 117
Chapter 164 Secret Investigation
At the intersection between Tokyo Tama City and Fuchu City, there was a land that was preserved for urban development but has yet to be developed and has been covered with a forest of tall trees from the outside.
In the vicinity of this forest, there was an ongoing development of Golf course with several tennis courts. Regarding the construction of a large recreation center here, there have been mixed feelings from the local resident. Except for the middle and small sized businesses that were hoping after the completion of the recreational center would be able to join and the expectation of booming in business for the nearby shops, but more residents were worried that the construction of this recreational center would destroy the natural environment in the nearby area.
Walking for about five minutes from the golf course toward the direction of the highway, one can see a large European-style mansion with garden. This was the current Mayor of Tokyo Shintaro Ikeyama’s luxurious home.
Tonight, this place was holding a grand reception, the theme of which was to celebrate Shintaro Ishihara successfully became an official candidate for Senatorial election.
Although Shintaro Ikeyama himself was one of the shareholders in overseas oil development company, it did not mean that he was willing to use his own money to run the campaign advertisement. Therefore, to those business guests who were accustomed to deal with the officials, tonight’s Banquet was not a normal celebration. Otherwise, the man has just become a candidate, why would he need to celebrate it with such a pomp party? If someone accidentally opened the gifts from those guests they would find checks that can be cashed in real-time tucked in there.
Not a while ago those Presidents of the many firms that was present here already gave their gifts at the birthday banquet. And now less than two weeks later, they have to give it to the Mayor of Tokyo. Although they were secretly resentful of his greedy behavior, they have no alternative.
Because although this man was so disgusting, one thing was undeniable. That was, in the midst of so many candidates, he was the most likely candidate to be elected as a Senator.
In the eyes of general public, Shintaro Ikeyama was a powerful patriotic official. Not only he **, he was also actively anti-American. When the United States soldiers in Japan rape girls and do evil conducts, the newspapers reported it. And to this day Shintaro Ikeyama would always speak out about it, and his attitude was equally though. This made some Japanese felt that Shintaro Ikeyama was a hero for daring to speak out. He even wrote a book, which titled ‘Japan Can Say “No”’. This book, which flooded with large numbers of vulgar words, turned out to be very popular in Japan. And even some people outside of Japan have followed suit in writing books with a similar topic.
Because psychologically people sometimes needed external though person. The more though that person was, the more he can give people the “Patriotic” feeling. Shintaro Ishihara, with his profound understanding of human nature, naturally knew this. Therefore, his fame was the highest among the other candidates.
But to people who have dealt with him, knew that this man was a wolf in a suit. He was like a bloodsucking leech with insatiable appetite of sucking someone else’s blood.
In the evening around nine o’clock, the invited guests have basically in attendance.
In addition to officials from all level of political circles, the hall was filled with well-known people in the business world. At a glance, there were many well dressed, gentleman-looking men with elegant ladies. In the middle of the hall, everyone let out a large piece of open space for people to dance with their partner.
“Eiko, let us go to the dance floor to dance.” A similarly dressed in neat suit police officer Watanabe asked the woman dressed in a black long dress, who stood next to him, Eiko Kotoshi.
Unfortunately, the female inspector police did not hear his kind invitation, because she was looking at the several other guests talking with the Tokyo Mayor Shintaro Shintaro Ishihara.
“Eiko.” Seeing that his companion did not seem to hear what he said, Watanabe Muramasa gently patted her on the shoulder.
“What?” Eiko Kotoshi finally recovered her attention.
“Do you know Mayor Shintaro?”
“No. What did you just ask me a moment ago?” The female police inspector did not want to be seen through by him, quickly changed the subject.
“Come dance with me.”
“I am sorry, I do not dance.”
“It does not matter, we just do the slow dance.”
“Okay then.” Eiko Kotoshi knew it would not be good if she continued to refuse, moreover, the time was still early.
Watanabe Muramasa was very pleased to take her to the dance floor.
He was somewhat in disbelief that he actually able to dance here with her.
In fact, he never thought to attend this party, but she was the one who first asked him to participate in this event by the Mayor of Tokyo.
Although it felt a bit strange, in his excitement, Watanabe Muramasa did not dwell on it, and hurriedly asked his uncle for the invitation for tonight attendance.
After seeing the appearance of the first time dressed up Eiko Kotoshi in front of him, he cannot help but have an amazing feeling.
Under the sound of melodious music, Watanabe Muramasa slowly danced with her in the middle of the hall. Feeling the flexible and slender waist of her with his hand, he became more determined to obtain this woman.
After the end of the song, Watanabe Muramasa invited her to continue to dance, but Eiko Kotoshi said she wanted to fix her makeup. And then she walked away to the bathroom.
After leaving the hall, while no one was looking, Eiko Kotoshi quietly walked into a large room empty of people.
After closing the door, she immediately pulled up the red carpet on the floor, and then carefully observed the floor.
After determining there was nothing exceptional about it, she went to the couch and pushed it aside, and then looking at the floor behind the couch.
After watching the entire floor of the room, she focused her vision on the surrounding walls.
After a while, she quietly walked out of the room and went into another room to inspect it the same way as before.
Besides the kitchen, she quickly inspected all the rooms in the corridor. However, she did not find the existence of anything similar to a secret door.
But soon, she quickly moved her gaze toward the garden outside.
Without much thought, she immediately unceremoniously climbed out of the corridor window with an unladylike action.
She pretended to slowly take a walk around the garden, while her eyes watching the situation around her to determine there were no other people here.
After inspecting the whole garden, she did not see anything strange about it.
Is that person actually lying to me? The doubt inside the female police’s heart became heavier.
After returning to the main hall, the female police inspector came to Watanabe Muramasa’s side, only to find he was talking with a very fashionable girl.
“Ah, Eiko, you are back. Let me introduce you, this is my senior sister in the University, I also did not expect to see here.” For fear of her misunderstanding, Watanabe Muramasa hurriedly introduced her to the girl beside him.
“Oh, your girlfriend? Very pretty. Hello, my name is Akira Murorie.” That girl said with a smile.
“Hello, my name is Eiko Kotoshi, Mr. Watanabe’s colleague.” The female police inspector calmly stated her identity.
Looking at Watanabe Muramasa’s embarrassed expression, Akira Murorie smiled, “I won’t bother you guys anymore, my boyfriend is over there. Junior Watanabe, keep up your effort.” With that, she smiled and walked away.
“Eiko, senior sister Akira really likes to joke, haha.” Watanabe Muramasa forced himself to laugh.
“Mr. Watanabe, I am really grateful for your help.”
“Why are you being so polite? Actually, I did not help you anything.” He was a bit confused about this ambiguous remark of her.
To a person who rarely asked someone else’s for help like Eiko Kotoshi, she did feel she owed this man a favor.
After glancing around the room, the female police inspector did not see Shintaro Ikeyama among the guests, therefore, she said to Watanabe Muramasa: “Do you know where is Mayor Shintaro?”
“Em, let me think about it. I remember that I just see him on stairs. Why do you want to look for him?”
“It is nothing, I am just asking. After all, he is the host of this party.
To hear her say that, Watanabe Muramasa also did not care and continued to chat with her.
After a while, Eiko Kotoshi said to Watanabe Muramasa: “I have to make a phone call, if you’ll excuse me.”
Seeing her walked away again, Watanabe was a bit depressed.
Because there was also a lounge for guests on the second floor, when Eiko Kotoshi went upstairs, no one took notice of her.
After looking at the several open lounges, she did not see Shintaro Ikeyama. Therefore, she asked the waiter on the second floor. From them, she found that he just went to the library on the third floor.
When no one paid attention, she quietly walked to the third floor.
Compared to the main hall or the second-floor lounge, the third floor was a lot quiet. She went to the front of the only room where there was a light, and then put her ear on the door to listen to the sound from the inside. After a while, she really heard the sound of someone speaking in the inside. But because it was blocked by the door, she was unable to clearly hear it.
She immediately pulled her dress up until it reached her thigh, exposing her snow white thigh. On the left thigh tied a P5 made in German pistol that she bought a few days ago from the black market. And on her upper right thigh tied something that looked like a stethoscope.
She pasted the head of that stethoscope-like thing flat on the door and then attached its other side to her ears.
Gradually, she was able to hear the conversation from the inside. She cannot help but feel happy that she also bought this thing when she bought the pistol.
“I told you, now is a very important period. Why did you bring so many people here?” It was a middle-aged male voice.
“Do not worry, this is just a simple party, no one will find anything.” Shintaro Ikeyama uncaringly said.
“Now we cannot take any risk, the above specifically explained to us. The previous matter, we have been very passive, I do not want to have any disadvantageous situation again.”
“Ai, I also do not want to do this. But there are some candidates that pose a great threat to me, so I had no alternative but to hold a party to raise the election campaign money. As you know, I am determined to win this election.”
“You say all this, just to try to force us to support you, right?” The other man coldly snorted.
“Do not get me wrong, I do not mean that. I have taken such a big risk for you, I think you ought to tell the above about my innermost desire.”
“All right, I will talk to the above about this. But I want you to promise me, before those things have been shipped away, you cannot let anyone to come here again.
“No problem. Please send my regards to the above.”
“You are considerate.”
Feeling that man was going to come out, Eiko Kotoshi immediately put that stethoscope-looking thing away, and then quickly went down to the second floor.
After narrowly returned unnoticed to the main Hall, the female police inspector took a deep breath to adjust her mood.
The things that the man said were the one that she wanted. However, this was, after all, the mansion of the Mayor of Tokyo. According to that person, if at the appointed time she still cannot obtain anything, it would be very troublesome.
After thinking about it for a moment, she finally made a decision.
“Eiko, have you done with your phone call?” Seeing her finally came back, Watanabe Muramasa’s face immediately showed a smile.
“Mr. Watanabe, what time is it now?” She asked while deliberately rubbing her forehead.
“Now it is around ten o’clock. Are you feeling unwell?”
“Yes, from the start, my head hurts a little bit.”
“Do you want me to send you to the Hospital?”
“No, I will just go home and rest.”
“Then I will send you back.”
“No need, I can take a taxi to go home.”
Under her determined insistence, Watanabe Muramasa had to help her call a taxi at the entrance.
“If you need anything, please call me on my phone, I will immediately rush over.”
Watching the taxi drove farther and farther away, Watanabe Muramasa felt somewhat lost. Sometimes, he really could not guess what was on her mind.
“Driver, please turned back, I forgot some things.” Fifteen minutes later, Eiko Kotoshi said to the taxi driver.
After the taxi returned back to the mansion, the female police inspector got out of the car and then dialed Watanabe Muramasa’s phone.
After determining that he had left, she immediately returned to the hall as a guest.
In the corridor, taking advantage while no one sees her, she quietly hid in an empty room.
What she needed to do right now was to wait until after all the guests had gone home, and then carefully searched the house. As long as she found the evidence, she can alarm the police to come here.
She actually did not want to go against that mysterious person’s words, but she thought that the approach was a bit too rash. Moreover, up until now, she still has some suspicion toward that mysterious person who provided her with the intelligence. After all, she has never met that person face to face, and that person knew all the details about her. If that person was the enemy in disguise to approach her, then she would be in a very dangerous situation.
