Awakening - Chapter 158
Chapter 201 Massage
“What about those two brothers?”
“Really? That’s good then. Tell them this, I don’t blame them because ordinary people can’t deal with the opposite party.”
“Thank you, goodbye.”
After hanging up the phone, Lei Yin tightly clenched his fist.
His grandma! What does that dead woman want to do?
Half an hour later, Lei Yin’s phone rang.
Just as he pressed the answer icon, a charming voice came through the speaker: “Hey, darling, do you miss me?”
Lei Yin fought back his impulse to curse, and then answered with a fake smile: “I never miss you this much.”
“That’s good, I’m afraid you’ll forget about me. You’re a heartless guy, my hands were hurt because of you.”
Lei Yin was no longer in the mood to chit chat with her, “Why did you catch Kazumi?”
“Masashi, this is the kind of question that you should not ask.”
“What do you want?”
“I just want you.”
Lei Yin cannot help but feel a headache, This woman really can drive people crazy.
“Tell me the place, I’ll be right there.”
“You really care about your sister, don’t you? I’m jealous you know. Very well, you can come here, but remember to come alone. You also know I am a shy person. If there are too many people, I may do things that I can’t control because of anxious.”
After saying her location, Sasako hung up the phone.
After whispering a curse, Lei Yin immediately went out of the apartment.
After driving his car to the said location, Lei Yin began to carefully observe the surrounding environment.
This place was a public park, which was roughly one hour away from his apartment. It was similar to the prime location in Tokyo. There were not many places like this, and most of them were on the outskirts.
On holidays, many families will travel by cars for a picnic here to feel the nature. But now the place was like a graveyard, it was as if a monster would appear at any moment.
Suddenly, his cell phone rang. If he was an average person, he would jump in a scare, but Lei Yin did not even bat an eye, and immediately pulled his mobile phone to answer the call.
“Darling, are you coming?”
“Just arrived, please don’t call me darling anymore.” Lei Yin knew that she must have been watching him. Otherwise, she simply cannot know his position.
There was a chuckle on the phone: “Oh you, I can’t believe you are so shy. You’ve almost touched my whole body, yet you said these unfeeling words, you’re really too much.”
Lei Yin did not have the patient to bother with her flirt: “Where are you now?”
“Hateful, you ignore people. Forget it, I’ll wait until you’re here to get even with you. Now go left and follow that path. At the end of the path, there is a pond. There is an old house opposite of that pond. I am in that house. Come on, don’t let people wait too long.”
After hanging up the phone, Lei Yin followed the said route.
As he walked, he quietly held his phone and dialed a number. After the call went through, he did not put the phone to his ear. Instead, he lightly tapped the phone, sometimes fast, and sometimes slow.
Not long after, he did see the old house across the pond, just like she said.
This is an old two-storied building that is available for tourists in this park to shelter themselves in the case of rain. When Lei Yin arrived at the door, he immediately sensed there were people upstairs.
Although there were no lights on the first floor, Lei Yin came to the second floor without a hindrance.
At the second floor, he has yet to meet anyone. So he continued upward toward the roof.
On the roof, he saw Sasako sitting gracefully in a chair with legs crossed, looking at him with a smile. Kazumi was on another chair beside her, with hands tied on the back, and mouth stuffed with a handkerchief.
Seeing Lei Yin, Kazumi’s eyes revealed a very worried and anxious look.
Tonight’s moonlight was very bright. Even in the absence of light from the lamps, everyone can still see each other very clearly.
“Masashi, you’re here.” Sasako’s tone of voice was similar to a wife greeting her husband from work.
After casting a glance at Kazumi, Lei Yin turned to look at Sasako, “It seems like Japan have problems with their educators. A dignified University teacher is actually reduced to a common kidnapper.”
Sasako covered her mouth to chuckle, “If I didn’t do this, how could you think of me?”
Lei Yin did not want to talk nonsense with her, coldly asked: “What do you want?”
“Didn’t people say it already? I just want you.”
“This is not funny.”
“I told you the truth, but you don’t believe it. How about this, in the last round, I lost to you; as a prize, I can answer several of your questions. Of course, I retain the right to choose not to answer some of the questions.”
Lei Yin did not know this woman’s true intention. After thinking for a moment, he asked: “Who are you.”
“Of course, I am your Sasako-sensei.” Her face showed a completely innocent expression.
Knowing that she wouldn’t tell the truth, Lei Yin had to ask another question, “Why did you deliberately try to get close to me? I hope you don’t say the same perfunctory answer like before.”
Sasako-sensei did not fool around this time. But smiled and said: “Very well, I will tell you. I tried to approach you to investigate your ins and out.”
Lei Yin was not too surprised, the answer was one of the scenarios he envisioned in his heart. He just did not know if what she said was true or false.
He dryly said: “Do you need to go through all of that to get my details?”
“Of course, you have the value, and the more I am in contact with you, the more curious I am. Good, your prize have been delivered. Now it’s my turn to ask you.”
With that, she suddenly pulled out a knife from her body, and then gently brushed it on Kazumi’s face. At this time, her usual flirtatious smile was all gone. She then turned around to look at him and slowly said: “Now tell me, what is the relationship between you and Rei Li of the Black Dragon?”
Lei Yin’s heart could not help but shake, he never thought this woman would ask him this question. Ever since he fought with her, he always thought she is a member of Japanese Esper’s organization. But judging from this question, that was certainly not the case.
He intentionally showed a slightly surprised look and asked: “I don’t quite understand what you mean?”
“Don’t try to pretend, I know you and Rei Li know each other. I am just not quite clear about the exact relationship between the two of you. So I want to ask you about this.”
After lowering her head to ponder for a moment, she went on to say: “Okay, rather than quibble indefinitely with you, I will tell you one thing. I have the report of the Black Dragon internal investigation from Tang Najin before he died. The report pointed out that Rei Li has personally visited Japan to meet with a Japanese high school student. That was three years ago, and that high school student is you, Gennai Masashi.”
That Tang Najin again, that guy really liked to drag people into trouble, even after he is dead. Lei Yin could not help but secretly curse that guy’s 18 generations ancestors.
Knowing that he cannot dodge this question anymore, Lei Yin took a breath and said: “You guessed it right, I do know Rei Li.
“Very well, then, please talk about your relationship with him.”
“He is my martial brother.”
“What?” This answer was a surprise to Sasako.
Lei Yin went on to say: “Twelve years ago, Yan Yuxiao, who is Rei Li’s master, came to Japan and by chance took me as his second disciple. However, besides a handful of people, no one else knew about this. Two years later, master passed away, and since then I have never had any contact with Rei Li. Until three years ago, Rei Li wanted me to join the Black Dragon to help him. But because I don’t want to enter this path, I rejected him.”
Yan Yuxiao was Lei Yin’s previous rebirth name. Very few people knew his real name, and most of them have already died by now. That was why he can freely give his real name to Amy. Moreover, his status within the Black Dragon branch of Japan was indeed the second disciple of Yan Yuxiao, the younger martial brother of Rei Li. People who really knew that he was the reincarnation of Yan Yuxiao were Rei Li, Chan’an, and a very few trusted members of the group.
Sasako looked at him doubtfully, to her knowledge, Rei Li did have a master called Yan Yuxiao. Moreover, everyone knew that the entire Black Dragon was inherited to Rei Li from Yan Yuxiao.
This Yan Yuxiao was an absolutely legendary figure. The powerful Black Dragon organization that almost penetrate the entire world of international underworld organization was single-handedly built by him in just a few decades. According to legend, no one, or things, has ever been able to defeat him. Moreover, in the Black Dragon, his character was very low-key. Outsiders rarely have the opportunity to see him. But no one can beat his influence in the world of organized crime. Today, even though he has been dead for more than a decade, no one can rival the magnitude of his accomplishment.
“Do you have any way to prove that you are Yan Yuxiao’s second disciple?” Sasako went on to ask.
“Why don’t you fight me again so that you can prove it yourself.” Lei Yin showed a provocative look.
“You really don’t understand how to be a gentleman, how could you ask a weak woman like me to trade blows with you?” Sasako looked at him with a gentle look.
“This is the first time I see a weak woman that almost destroyed my house. The questions have been answered, shouldn’t your turn now to release the people?”
“I’ve worked so hard to invite your sister here, how could I let her go that easy? And I haven’t finished my questions.”
“You’re a really troublesome woman, hurry up and ask.”
Sasko looked at him and said: “Two years ago, Rei Li was once seized by a mysterious organization, but shortly, a group of masked people came to rescue him. At that time, those people who wanted to save him were surrounded by that mysterious organization’s formidable firepower. Just then, a person – strictly speaking, we also don’t know if that was a person – killed more than 200 well-trained members of the organization in just a few minutes. Moreover, he did not use any firearms, just a blade. Now I ask you, are you that man?” At the last sentence, Sasako deliberately slowed down her speech, her eyes were tightly staring at him.
The more he listened the colder he become. Lei Yin finally knew who this woman is. If she say she did not have any relation with the people in that base, he would absolutely not believe it. In other words, she was likely a US operatives sent here to investigate his power.
Right now, it would be stupid of him to immediately reply with a yes or no. But he also cannot make her wait too long. In this short period of time, his brain accelerated to its fastest speed.
After he came back from US, Chang’an told him that, except for the important document that they used as blackmail material, the whole base has been blown up by them, including all of the recording devices that recorded Lei Yin’s killing of those men in black. Therefore, the one who disclosed this matter should be the head of that base who escaped at that time. Moreover, looking at her look, she did not seem 100 percent sure whether he participated in that rescue operation. In other words, the dark group member who betrayed them only informed the base about their impending rescue operation and did not have enough time to reveal more about their things. And the most important thing was, the renegade dark group member was not aware of his true identity. Therefore, the situation was not too bad.
When Sasako asked this question, she very carefully watched his facial expressions. But to her disappointment, the man’s expression was without any change, including his eyes.
After carefully analyzing all the stakes, Lei Yin said: “That time, I did come to rescue Rei Li, but I was only responsible for aiding them from the side. I did not go in with them. Chang’an told me that if something happen to him and Rei Li, I would need to take control of the Black Dragon so he did not let me go in together with them.” He once disappeared for nearly two years; moreover, the time when he went missing was close to the time when this thing happened. Therefore, if he blindly deny his involvement, it would give himself away instead.
This explanation from him was actually accepted by Sasako. After all, a huge underworld organization like the Black Dragon do need someone to inherit it. And who would be more suitable candidate than the direct disciple of Yan Yuxiao, the man who created it?
How could she imagine that the twenty-something youth in front of her turned out to be the reincarnation of a millennium old ghost who has rebirthed a countless time?
After thinking about it, Sasako went on to ask: “Since you are Yan Xuyao’s disciple, and you also participated in that action, then you should know about the true identity of that person.”
Lei Yin simply spread his arms wide and said: “Sorry. I don’t know.”
Sasako frowned, “You don’t know?”
“Yes, after the kidnapping of Rei Li, I was called for help by Chang’an. At the time, shortly after I got of the plane, they were ready to begin the operation. I only know that there was a very strange person by Chang’an’s side.”
“Strange person? What do you mean?”
“That person always cover his face even when there were only a few of us. And his eyes were very strange – I don’t know how to describe them – as if they were hungry wolves’ eyes; It was very uncomfortable. I once asked Chang’an about this man’s identity, but he just told me that the man is not a member of Black Dragon and he just asked him to help. He also told me not to ask anymore. Regarding this person, I only know that much.” In order to make her believe, Lei Yin spelled out some details about “that person.” Moreover, he was very clear that, sometimes some of the less conventional explanations were relatively easier to believe, so he simply said he did not know, and used Chang’an as a shield.
Sure enough, after hearing his words, the doubts in Sasako’s eyes gradually dwindled. This extremely subtle change can only be perceived by an old ghost like Lei Yin.
But at the same time, he also had a kind of depressed feeling. If he was still Yan Yuxiao, there was no need for him to be this evasive when he can just go all out against this people and deal a blow to them. But he was now Gennai Masashi, and there were people he needed to protect behind him, so he cannot reveal his identity under any circumstances.
In order not to let this vixen have the time to analyze his words, Lei Yin immediately said: “You should’ve finished all your question. Now let my sister go.”
As if she already got her desired answer, Sasako restored her flirtatious smile. Her hand gently stroked Kazumi’s face and said to her: “Student Kazumi, I was right wasn’t I? Your brother really cares about you. Now what should I do? I don’t know if I should just let you go so easily, after all, for this heartless elder brother of yours, you are a very good bargaining chip.”
Lei Yin coldly said: “As long as you let go of Kazumi, I won’t haggle with you over tonight’s matter ever again.”
Sasako turned to look at him and said with a smile: “Although you are not an Esper, in our previous fight, I felt like you held back a lot of your power. Therefore, I believe your words that you are Yan Yuxiao’s disciple. What a terrifying man that Yang Yuxiao was. But this is also where you attracted me the most. However, I also did not use my real power. Oh, I’d love to see how strong is the direct disciple of that legendary man.
Don’t you want another round of fight with me again? Well, I decide to give you this opportunity. If you win, I will give myself to you as the prize, of course, I will also let go of your sister.” With that, she gracefully rose up from the chair and then, with that pair of sexy slender legs, slowly walked over to him.
Lei Yin looked at her with a very calm eyes, but a wave of cool excitement, like an undercurrent, continued to well up in his mind.
Although their last fight was not a real fight, he can tell that this woman was a lot more powerful than Jiro Yamahara. From the way she effortlessly separated the entire door from the door frame to smash it at him, he can infer that he absolutely did not have victory assurance. But it was exactly because of this sense of uncertainty over victory or defeat that made him even more excited, even though he did not show it on his face.
After arriving at three meter distance from him, Sasako suddenly smiled to him. This smile was even more flirtatious than her previous smile. But almost at the same time, he felt a surge of cannot-be-explained-by-common-sense huge force that threw his whole body away.
“Bam!” A dull thumping sound resounded in this old building. Lei Yin’s body hit the top of the guardrail in a horizontal position.
This force was much more powerful than what he imagined. Even with Lei Yin’s superhuman reaction, he only had enough time to move his internal energy to reduce the impact of the injury. However, the intense impact nevertheless made his blood rolled up and down incessantly.
Watching him slowly standing up from the ground, Sasako smilingly said: “Masashi, did I hit you too hard?”
“How could it be, this is the best massage that I’ve received in my entire life.” Lei Yin lightly said.
