Awakening - Chapter 161
Chapter 204 Together
South of Manhattan, USA. Two days ago, there were large explosions on a third story building not far from the famous Wall Street.
According to the nearby residents, there were three successive explosion sounds. Moreover, many people saw the continued surge of fire.
Because of the proximity to the famous financial center on Wall Street, plus such large explosions were rare in New York City, it aroused the attention of many journalists.
Although the fire has been successfully put out, the building was completely burned and its outer layer blackened; Broken glasses scattered around along with the stones, looking very unsightly.
Many reporters suspected that this was a terrorist act, but the Government denied that, saying that it was completely an accident. For this explanation, many people hold a skeptical attitude.
Fortunately, the explosions happened late at night; Except for a few staffs in charge of night guards, there were no other people working inside the building. Therefore, the number of deaths and injured were limited.
Now is the morning of the third day after the explosions, some cleanup workers began to clean up the nearby debris and broken glasses, as well as stones. Although two days have passed, there were still some journalists outside of the blocked site.
Among the crowd of spectators, a forty years old man is silently watching the second and the third floor, which suffered the biggest explosions.
Half an hour later, he quietly left the scene and went into a nearby restaurant.
After casually ordering something to the waiter, he looked outside the window to the ruined building with strange eyes. After a while, he took out his mobile phone and dialed an airline.
From the Atlanta airport, the middle-aged man did not go to a hotel, but directly went North of the City by car to a nearby cemetery.
Arriving there, he stayed in a nearby hotel.
About nine o’clock in the evening, the middle-aged man was in his room watching the news on TV. At this time, someone knocked at the door.
When he opened the door, he saw a woman with a very heavy makeup and hourglass figure.
She threw a flirtatious look at the man and said: “Sir, do you want extra services?”
“Do not reject so quickly, why don’t you check on them first.” She said, and then put the man’s hand on her huge chest and made it knead them.
With a nonchalant look, the man withdrew his hand. “I am sorry, I don’t need it.”
Seeing that the man was really uninterested, the woman had to leave the room with a disappointed look. But before leaving, she whispered some swear words.
The middle-aged man smiled, shut the door and continued to watch TV.
Around 11 o’clock in the evening, the middle-aged man walked out of the hotel, and then quietly walked to the cemetery.
The cemetery was very large and surrounded by trees, and because it was quite a distance from the road, it was very quiet.
At night, this cemetery, with almost no lights, looked a lot like the one in horror stories, which can make most people’s hair stand on end.
After entering the cemetery, the man walked while counting the number of tombstones that he passed. At the 67th tombstone, he stopped. He then carefully looked at the inscription on the tombstone.
He then walked behind the tombstone and started digging with a small shovel in his hand.
He carefully dug the ground, as if he was afraid it would spoil the lawn. When he dug to 30 cm deep, the shovel seemed to hit something.
He continued to dig for a while and found a small iron box
He opened the unlocked box and saw there was a small package wrapped in a plastic bag.
He put the bag into his pocket without seeing it, put the iron box inside the pit and reburied it. He restored the original soil as best as he could.
Back at the hotel room, he took out the stuff inside his pocket. After opening the plastic bag, he saw there was a folded map.
This map is clearly marked. After carefully looking at the marked position, he took out a lighter and burned the map.
Watching the slowly burned map, the man’s heart finally sighed in relief. Looks like the two of them are still alive.
“Chang’an, when do you think Master will come?” At this time, Rei Li coughed a few times.
Chang’an went to his bedside and said: “Rest assured, I have put the map in the secret place, he should be here soon. How do you feel today?”
“A bit better than yesterday, but it still hurts like hell.”
“Wait a minute, I’ll get you some painkillers.”
“His grandma! I never thought those guys would make their move so soon; if I didn’t escape quickly, I would have died.”
“Fortunately, his excellency (previously Master) informed us in advance. Otherwise, we would’ve been wiped out by this time.”
At this time, a strange rhythm of knocking came through the door.
Chang’an immediately grabbed his pistol and then raised his voice to ask: “What happens?”
A man voice came through the door, “Your excellency, there is a suspicious man outside. But his way of knocking is the same like what you told us.”
“What does he look like?”
“It’s a man in his forties and seems to be Asian.”
Chang’an could not help but look at Rei Li and say: “Let him in.”
Seeing the gate of the old house suddenly opened in silent, the middle-aged man who has been waiting for quite a while slowly walked in.
In the dark hall, he suddenly heard the sound of a young man, “Follow me, please.”
The middle-aged man felt like he was being surrounded by at least five muzzles. As long as there is any change, this place will immediately turn into a hornet’s nest.
He followed the young man in the dark to the second floor. Then the young man led him into a room.
Under the weak lighting, seeing that person’s face, Chang’an’s eyes were immediately filled with undisguised surprise, “Your excellency, you’re finally here.”
Chapter 204 Together Part 2
“What happened?” After putting down the wig and artificial skin, Lei Yin first looked at Rei Li, who was lying down on the bed strapped with bandages, and then turned around and asked Chang’an.
“It’s those men in black, they attacked our bases once again. But this time, there were much more of them. Fortunately, your excellency warned us last week that the enemy would likely make their move. Therefore, the casualties are not that heavy. But we lost contact with other divisions.”
“Why would they do that? Is it for that information?”
Chang’an replied: “Probably. Although I don’t know how they knew, one copy of the data is indeed in little Rei’s shell company.”
Lei Yin turned to Rei Li. “How did you get hurt?”
Being asked about this issue, Rei Li was full on fire as he said: “One day I will skin those sons of b*tches *sses. I was in a meeting with some people in the company when those guys suddenly rushed in and started killing people. At the time I was injured; when they chased me, I had no other choice than to send people to leak the gas on the first-floor restaurant, blowing several of them.” read this on subudai11.com
Lei Yin looked askance at him, “Meeting? Why would there be a meeting late at night? You’re not having a secret meeting are you?”
Rei Li said discontentedly: “It’s a real meeting, Master. Don’t always judge me so quick like that, okay?”
“There’s nothing to be done, your credit rating is too poor.” After lowering his head to think for a moment, he asked Chang’an: “Didn’t you already make a deal with them? Why would those guys want to make their move on you again?”
“I don’t know either. This attack is a bit unusual, it seems like they are more blatant than before.”
Lei Yin said in a deep voice: “This may be a real full-scale war.”
Hearing this, Chang’an and Rei Li’s hearts could not help but sink. They knew what force behind those men in black is, which definitely no underworld gangs can compete.
Lei Yin continued: “This is their territory, so we are at huge disadvantages here. We have to leave the country as soon as possible. If somewhere else, their ground force would not dare to follow us in the open. If it becomes murky, that’s our best advantage and we don’t need to be afraid anymore. However, among them, there are some people that you have to be very careful to deal with.” Lei Yin then told them about his encounter with Sasako.
Hearing that the woman can almost fight to a draw with Lei Yin, Rei Li asked in amazement: “Is that woman really that powerful?”
“Yes. She’s the most powerful Esper I have ever seen. Let’s hope that there are not many people like her, otherwise, this war will be very difficult to cope with. Now we don’t need to think about it too much, the most important thing is for you to recover first. Until things calm down a bit, we will leave this place. Did you prepare the things that I told you in advance?”
Rei Li nodded his head, “I’ve prepared them. This abandoned villa is among those.”
After his fight with Sasako a week ago, Lei Yin had a sense of foreboding that those men in black may soon strike Rei Li’s forces once again. Otherwise, they would not send her to investigate him. Therefore, he called Rei Li to secretly save some arms on several storage points, as well as cash and canned food, just in case. But he never thought the other party would make their move this fast.
Thus, Rei Li continued to recuperate for a few days. Chang’an and Rei Li stayed in the room to look after him, but sometimes they would take turns to inspect the situation outside.
By the third day, Rei Li manage to get out of bed and move around. Seeing his injuries gradually healed, his mood improved a lot.
When everyone was having dinner, Lei Yin suddenly felt uneasy. Having an acute sense of danger, he immediately dropped his can and stood up.
“Master, what happens?” Rei Li asked.
“I’ll go out and check it.” With that, Lei Yin covered his face and jumped out of the window.
After arriving outside, Lei Yin carefully observed the surrounding environment. When he turned and saw Chang’an, he walked toward him.
Seeing Chang’an standing atop a tree in full alert, Lei Yin gently leaped up and softly asked: “Do you see something?”
Chang’an replied, just as softly: “It seems nothing is unusual.”
“Be careful, I have a bad feeling about this. Why don’t you check on those guys guarding at the front? Look for their situation.”
“Okay.” Chang’an fully believed Lei Yin’s intuition. At that moment, he immediately took out his intercom and contacted their group members at the front.
After a while, he replied: “Your excellency, our on-duty members do not discover something unusual in the front.”
“Let’s hope I am just overthinking things.”
“Your excellency, later on, what should we do?”
Lei Yin thought about it and said: “There’s nothing to think about, we just need to get out of here alive. Later on, Black Dragon will be headquartered elsewhere. Moreover, as much as possible we have to reduce our contact here. If it still doesn’t work, then we’ll simply dissolve the Black Dragon, breaking it into pieces.”
“If you want to dissolve the Black Dragon, little Rei would certainly be the first to oppose.”
“You two are not the same as me, there is only one life for each of you, once it’s over then it’s over. This is not a debatable issue, my primary concern is to keep the two of you alive. As long as we survive this, we will have a chance to revenge in the future.”
“I understand, your excellency.”
Suddenly, Lei Yin’s face turned really ugly. The first to aware of his sudden change was Chang’an, who immediately asked: “Your excellency, what’s wrong?”
“His grandma. We’ve been sold. Get back inside and bring little Rei out of here. A group of people is approaching this place. Go, I’ll cover you.” With that, he raised his submachine gun and jumped down from the tree.
Being teamed up with him for so many years, Chang’an knew that the situation was critical. Without saying a word, he immediately jumped down and then ran toward the abandoned villa.
Chapter 204 Together Part 3
Less than three minutes later, indeed, there were light rapid footsteps coming from the woods. Then, under the cover of darkness, more than twenty shadows continued to come close to the villa.
At the same time, there came a strange sound and a split second later, a dull humming sound sounded in the woods.
Not long after, came a somewhat muffled screaming sound.
At this time, those men in black who have observed that there were traps in the vicinity, immediately stopped and walked slowly and carefully.
Seeing them stopped, Lei Yin did not want to consume his time on them anymore and immediately turned around and ran toward the villa.
On their arranged escape route, on an alley next to the villa Lei Yin saw Chang’an and members of their dark group carrying Rei Li. Besides them, there were five trusted dark group members.
After joining with them, Lei Yin immediately led them to continue their escape.
Not long after that, suddenly there came a burst of propeller rotation sound above their heads. When they looked up, they saw two helicopters with searchlights flying in their direction.
“His grandma, they even called the helicopters! Is this a Vietnam war?” Rei Li cursed.
Lei Yin knew that the helicopters must have some kind of heat detection devices, otherwise, it would be impossible for them to accurately find their location in this dark environment.
“You guys have rocket launchers?” Knowing that they could not hide from those devices, Lei Yin made a decision to take down the helicopters.
“It’s in the villa, but because we’re in a hurry, we forgot to take it.” Rei Li regretfully said.
Suddenly, a row of bullets was shot from one of the helicopters, hitting the tree trunk on the ground in front of them.
“Quickly find places to cover yourself.” Lei Yin shouted and pulled the two youths, who carried Rei Li, on a nearby tree to hide.
That first row of bullets seemed like an opening ceremony, not long after they each took cover, those bullets came right at them again, forcing everyone to not move heedlessly. But the searchlights continued to move around them.
At this time, a voice came through a loudspeaker from the helicopter, “As long as you are willing to lay down your guns and surrender, we will not harm you. Now I am going to count to thirty, if at the end you are not willing to surrender, we will kill you on the spot. One, two, three….”
“Master, what do we do?” Rei Li asked.
“We have to put both helicopters down; They are just stalling for times. If we wait those people on the ground to surround us, even if we want to escape, we can’t. You stay here and don’t move, I am going to deal with them.” With that, he pulled out a grenade from his body and jumped up at an extreme speed.
Seeing someone jumped, they immediately fired on his position.
With an impressive speed, Lei Yin continued to jump around and dodge. As he dodged the bullets, he measured the height of the helicopter from the ground with his peripheral vision.
At this time, Chang’an understood his intention. He beckoned the dark group members next to him and then jumped out to shoot at the helicopter to cover Lei Yin.
Another helicopter, seeing someone jumped out, immediately fired back at him.
At this time, the helicopter was continuously shooting at Lei Yin with a submachine gun. But because of the high, it was hard for them to aim at Lei Yin, so they immediately gave up on him, who they thought was non-threatening, and started to open fire at the other one who returned fire at them.
Seizing this chance, Lei Yin immediately pulled the pin of the grenade in his hand and then threw it. Not only that, he also pulled out a pistol and took aim at the grenade.
When the grenade was at a few centimeters away from the helicopter’s window, he shot that grenade.
The bullet hit straight at the grenade, and it suddenly exploded. A powerful explosion smashed the glass window, pouring flames into the cockpit. In less than three seconds, the helicopter completely lost control and unsteadily fell down from the air. Finally, it exploded a second after it crashed to the ground.
The other helicopter froze its shooting, they did not know what happened and forgot to shoot at Chang’an.
Just then, the person on the gun saw a black object flew toward him. He subconsciously wanted to open fire at it, but at this moment, along with a gunshot, that thing split apart and then turned into a huge group of fire. He screamed and felt the assaulting flow of heat.
After seeing the second helicopter fell to the ground and exploded, Lei Yin yelled to the several of his people not far away from him: “Get out of here, fast.”
Hearing his yell, those several dark team members immediately gave their response and continued to run behind him.
Three minutes later, from behind, thirty men in black leotards finally arrived at the scene. Seeing the flames of the burning helicopters, the muscular man who walked at the front, pulled out a cell phone and dialed a number.
“The operation is failed. They got away.”
As soon as he finished, a burst of angry yell came from the phone, “Good for nothing! So many people with two helicopters and yet they still got away. Keeping you completely waste our money.”
The eyes of that man in black flashed a hint of anger, but he still very politely said: “They should have heavy weapons like rocket launchers, the two helicopters have been shot down by them.”
The man on the phone continued to curse: “I don’t care how much, in short, except for Rei Li, you can do anything you want with the others. Remember, if Rei Li die, each and every one of you must die together with him.”
After hanging up the phone, that man punched the tree next to him.
“Boom!” With a thud, that waist-sized tree turned into a pulp by that man’s punch.
“Everybody follow me.” After slightly calming his angry emotion, he led the other men in black to continue to pursue along that path.
