Awakening - Chapter 143
Chapter 205 The Chase Part 1
After stealing two cars, Lei Yin and his party of eight people quietly left Atlanta under the cover of night.
“Master, where do we want to go now?”
“To Boston, where the coastline is long there. I don’t believe I won’t find a ship leaving US. Initially, I thought we could wait until the situation calmed down a bit, but now it seems like we can’t, it’s too dangerous to stay here for too long.” Lei Yin answered while looking at the map.
Seeing Rei Li’s eyes somewhat lost their focus, Chang’an assured him, “Little Rei, we have already transferred our funds, and with our network, we can operate elsewhere. The one we gave up is just a part of our industry that happens to be the in US.”
Rei Li sighed and said: “I know, but we have put so much effort here, I am really unwilling to walk away just like that.”
Chang’an went silent, they indeed have spent a lot of time and effort here.
At this time the one driving the car suddenly said: “Boss, there’s a police inspection at the front intersection, do we continue?”
Rei Li said: “Master, we might as well go a different route. If those guys are coming toward us, it will be difficult for us to drive away if we are to be discovered here.”
Lei Yin thought for a moment and then said: “Fine, but we need to find a place to rest first. We will find a way tomorrow.”
Rei Li nodded and told the dark team members to quietly mix with the other cars and drive back in silence.
After nearly an hour of driving, they found an empty house where the homeowner seemed to be on a vacation. They decided to stay here for the night to rest their tired bodies.
Hearing someone knocking on the door, Lei Yin said: “Come in.”
After the door was opened, Rei Li and Chang’an came in.
Although Lei Yin wore a middle-aged man skin-mask, Chang’an can still see a trace of fatigue in his eyes: “Your excellency, are you okay?”
After drinking the glass of water offered by Rei Li, Lei Yin put down the empty glass and said: “I am okay, just a bit tired. But in a case of emergency, this is nothing.”
After continuously eliminating his real appearance and add a new one from the five strong-willed dark group members’ memories, even Lei Yin’s vigorous spiritual power became somewhat strained.
If this was before, it was not a big deal to let their trusted group members to know his real identity. But now, they faced an opponent that is nearly impossible to defeat. In order to prevent those who were caught to revealing his identity, he felt that doing this is very necessary. And his new identity is his previous decade’s identity, Yan Yuxiao, who is Rei Li’s Master. This can also explain why Rei Li always call him Master.
After a while, Rei Li asked: “Master, do you think those guys know our hiding place?”
“The biggest possibility is there is a traitor. But when I eliminated their memories just now, I asked them some questions. I can confirm that none of them are traitors. The problem could be on your informer.”
Rei Li pounded the table hard, “This is so uncomfortable, we can do nothing but being chased by those guys.”
Chang’an somewhat worriedly said: Your excellency, I think those people are getting crazier. This time they even used helicopters as if they weren’t afraid it will bring attention from others.”
Lei Yin said: “I found it strange also. If they’re only after that information, they did not have to do this. Nevertheless, our first priority is to leave the US. Go get some rest, it is already late.”
“Your excellency, you need to rest early too, we’ll take our leave.” Chang’an and Rei Li stood up.
Lei Yin nodded his head.
After the two people left the room, Lei Yin sat on the bed, deep in thought.
“Miss Hase, the dinner is ready.” A voice came from outside a quiet room.
After the door was opened, Naoko said to the elegant woman: “Thank you, miss Sakurai.”
“You are too kind.” Sakurai Mion said with a smile.
In the living room, the two beautiful woman began to eat quietly.
After eating for a bit, Naoko put down her chopsticks and said to Sakurai Mion: “I have had enough, Miss Sakurai.”
Seeing that she only ate a half bowl of rice, Sakurai Mion said: “Miss Hase, you ate too little, please take care of your body. Otherwise, Mr. Gennai would be very worried.”
Hearing her man’s name, Naoko could not help but start to worry.
Since he sent her here in the care of Sakurai Mion a few days ago, he never appeared and never called. This familiar scenario made her think back to when he went missing two years ago.
These days, if it weren’t for Miss Sakurai’s company, she might begin to indulge in flights of fancy.
Seeing her expression, Sakurai Mion knew she was remembering the man. She put down her chopsticks to comfort her: “Miss Hase, please do not worry, Mr. Gennai will definitely come back safely.”
“Thank you, Miss Sakurai.” Remembering that he did not leave her with disturbing words this time, unlike the last time, she felt a little bit better.
He will definitely come back. Naoko slowly traced the ring on her finger.
Watching her spirit restored a bit, Sakurai Mion slightly calmed down.
After several days being together with her, Sakurai Mion can feel that this ‘sister-in-law’ is almost on the stage of blind love to that man. But on the other hand, she is so intelligent and considerate. After being together for so long, she never asked her any questions. Every day she would be very calm but slightly worried about that man. She had never seen a woman like her.
After a while, Naoko suddenly picked up her chopsticks and then said with a smile to Sakurai Mion: “You are right, I shouldn’t have let him worry about me. I know he’d come back.” With that, she continued to eat quietly.
Sakurai Mion smiled and picked up her chopsticks….
Chapter 205 The Chase Part 2
In order to restore their energy, except for the members in charge of night duties, everyone tried to take as much sleep as they can, because they did not know how long before they could take another rest.
In the kitchen cabinet in the kitchen, Rei Li found some instant noodles. After being hungry for almost a day, he, who never ate this kind of junk food, found out that it was surprisingly delicious.
After a day of rest, everyone has restored their energies, and the little depressing atmosphere slowly faded away. At 11:00 PM, Lei Yin walked in from the outside.
“Master, what’s the current situation outside?”
“The checkpoint has been removed, perhaps they did not come after us. We will continue to hit the road tonight.”
Hearing that they can leave, all the people showed an excited look.
When the two cars were speeding on the highway, they did not know that three helicopters appeared at the house after they were about one kilometer away from the place. The rotating sound of the huge propellers attracted the attention of the nearby residents. A lot of people opened their windows or doors to see what happened.
After a thorough search, one of the men in black who went inside the house just a moment ago walked toward the tall and sturdy man: “There is no one inside. Additionally, we found some wheel marks in the nearby woods, I believe they have driven away.”
At this time, another man in black walked over and said: “I just received news from one of the highway toll stations, which has face recognition system, it photographed several people who look just like them.”
The sturdy man immediately exclaimed: “Call everyone to immediately board the helicopters.”
Two hours later, Lei Yin looked at the time; it was 2 o’clock in the morning. At this time, very few cars were on the road. On average, they would only see a car almost every ten minutes.
Because he has taken a sleep for a day, Rei Li was in a good spirit. He was listening to the music on the radio while humming along with it. Seeing him like this, Lei Yin smiled and turned his head to look outside of the window. Although there were street lights, there was a depressing silence in the highway late at night.
At this time, he suddenly heard some strange sounds. He first thought it was the wind, but soon thought it was wrong.
“Be quiet and turn off the radio.” Lei Yin shouted in low voice.
The crew immediately turned off the radio; Rei Li also looked at him strangely. Apart from the sound of the wind coming through the gap at the window, it was quiet in the car. Chang’an, who has been closing his eyes all this time, opened his eyes and started to carefully listened the outside sound.
After a while, Lei Yin said in a deep voice: “It’s a helicopter. There are two of them. And they are coming toward us.”
Hearing what he said, everyone’s heart could not help but sink.
“Master, are we going to abandon the cars now?” Rei Li immediately asked.
“No, currently, there are no covers around us, if we abandon the cars, they will soon catch up. Right now we need to speed up, as long as we can find a forest, we’ll have a chance to escape.”
After passing the instructions to the car behind them, the two cars picked up their speed, speeding along the highway.
Ten minutes later, even other people can listen the sound of the rotating propellers of the helicopter, not from the back, but from the front. Moreover, a high-intensity spotlight was lit up from the helicopter to illuminate them. Soon, the sound of the other two helicopters in hot pursuit from behind can also be heard by them.
“Turn right.” Lei Yin shouted out loud.
The member immediately turned the car right, leaving the highway. The car behind closely followed them.
Because the ground was filled with rocks and potholes, the two cars went up and down hard on it.
Because the seriously bad road condition affected their speed, the three helicopters were getting closer and closer.
“Open the sunroof.” Lei Yin said and took a grenade from his body.
“The car doesn’t have a sunroof.” The member exclaimed loudly.
Rei Li immediately picked up a submachine gun and fired it upward to make a rectangular shape on the roof. In the deafening sound of the submachine gun, the hot shells continuously fell down.
When he stopped firing, Lei Yin lifted his foot upward and kicked out that rectangular shape made by bullets on the roof. He then lifted his head a bit to observed the location of the helicopter.
Two minutes later, when the helicopter was less than 20 meters away from them, Lei Yin suddenly lifted his body through the rectangular hole on the roof and then threw a grenade toward it.
When Lei Yin was aiming the grenade, wanting to repeat the previous trick, the whole car suddenly jerked upward, almost throwing him outside the car,
“His grandma, can’t you drive a bit better?” Lei Yin scolded and helplessly watched the anti-tank grenade as it hit the helicopter and fell off. A few seconds later, the grenade exploded on the ground, bursting out a beautiful but useless flame.
“Your excellency, I am sorry, that was a big hole.” That crew said aloud.
“Forget it, it doesn’t matter.” Lei Yin somewhat disappointedly sat back to his seat.
“Master, what now?”
“If we can’t find a cover soon, it would be quite troublesome. But strange, why don’t they shoot at us?”
At this time, that crew member in the driver position suddenly said: “Your excellency, there’s a forest at the front.”
Hearing this, Lei Yin immediately took one look at the front and really saw an average sized forest at the front.
He could not help but laugh, “It seems like our luck isn’t too bad.”
Near the cars that have just been abandoned, about ten men in black jumped out of the helicopters.
At this time, that tall and sturdy man said to the three pilots: “I want you three to surround them from the outside. If you see them trying to escape, shoot to push them back. And immediately notify the headquarters, tell them our present location.”
After seeing the three helicopters lifted off, that man immediately went in with the other men in black.
