Awakening - Chapter 167
Chapter 210 The Third Layer
“Headquarters, this is the third squad responsible for the suppression of Old City Philadelphia. I am Captain Robert, right now the entire Old City has been in our control. The local police have also arrested of the gunmen. What should we do next? We ask headquarters for a new instruction.”
“This is the headquarters, I am the correspondent on duty. You’ve worked hard Captain Robert. Now I will transmit Lieutenant General Matt’s latest order. He asks you to assist the local the local police in maintaining order in the Old City, implement an uninterrupted patrol, and eliminate the dangerous people with guns who loot other people.”
“I understand, I will carry out the instruction.” After hanging up the phone, the Captain directed his team to help the police maintain the law and order.
On the other hand, after giving out the order, the correspondent’s trembling hand took off his headphone.
“Tie his hands.” The man in black who pointed a gun at him said to the other man in black next to him.
That man in black immediately handcuffed the correspondent’s hands behind the chair.
“Who are you really? Do you know what you are doing now….” Before he finished, the man in black has taped his mouth with plastic seal.
The man in black with a gun said to the other two correspondents who were similarly tied in a chair and mouth sealed up: “Don’t play any tricks, I don’t mind killing the two of you. Because one should be enough.”
Knowing that these people were cold-blooded, the several correspondents’ eyes were filled with horror. They still can’t believe that the entire military base was actually occupied.
Because of the riots in Philadelphia tonight, all the combatants in the base took up their weapons and went to assist the suppression. They lacked both, the manpower and firepower to fight back. But also because things happened so suddenly and they were surrounded by darkness, thus they were beaten from the start.
By contrast, those men in black carried a lot of fire powers, many of them have rocket launchers, which they fired directly at the base. They also have grenades and machine guns. The battle was lopsided from the start.
In less than ten minutes, hundreds of black-clad men have used their overwhelming firepower to break through the military base second level basement. The rest of the men in black stayed outside to prevent people from fleeing to look for help, or go into hiding and escaped unpunished.
The usually dignified face of the Lieutenant General was now covered with dust and looked awkward. In this narrow environment, a good commander displayed his capability by using two submachine guns simultaneously. If he did not see it himself, he would not know that the enemy could be this fierce. Their wave after wave of powerful attacks prevented them from catching a breath. Their more than two hundred soldiers were now less than sixty.
By this time, he knew that they have basically lost. If he continued to resist any longer it would only add unnecessary casualties.
But he dared not ordered the surrender. Because he knew how important are the things at the lowest level.
If these people took them away, the consequence would be something that he cannot possibly bear.
“General, we can hold them off for the time being, please give the order to withdraw.” An embarrassed aide loudly said.
“Very well, immediately withdraw to the lower level.” Without any other choice, the General had to nod.
Thus, the surviving fifty people made a suppressing fire as they took turns to withdraw to the third level.
The third layer was much spacious than the layers above it, and it also has an independent power generator system. Therefore, this was the only place that still has light. After entering the electronic door, without the being ordered, the adjutant immediately operated the access control to close the door.
After seeing the huge metal gate slowly went down, the Lieutenant General slightly relieved.
“General Matt, what’s going on out there? Is there a fire?” At this time, some people around 40 to 60 years of age in white lab gowns came over and asked in surprised.
“Dr. Seth, our base is under attack by some unknown men in black, they are forcing their way here.” General Matt said to the old man at the front.
“What? Isn’t this a military base? How could such a thing happen here?” Those few people could not help but alarmed.
General Matt wryly smiled, he also hoped that this was just a nightmare. In here, in addition to waiting for the reinforcement, there was nothing they can do, they have nowhere else to go. He had fought in Vietnam War, but even in such a brutal war, he has never been in such a passive situation like this.
“General Matt, who are they?” Seth continued to ask.
“I don’t know. What I do know is that they are a group of heavily armed men dressed in black. Unfortunately, our people went to Philadelphia to suppress the riots there. Otherwise, we would not be in this situation.” The Lieutenant General was even more certain that these riots have something to do with those men in black.
“General, they seemed to have stopped firing.” The adjutant came over and said.
“What are they trying to do?” The Lieutenant General frowned.
The adjutant said with a pale face: “Perhaps they want to explode the way in.”
Dr. Seth and the others suddenly went pale.
Chapter 210 The Third Layer Part 2
General Matt calmly said: “This underground lab was designed to withstand the nuclear explosion on the ground. Unless they use hundreds of kilograms of TNT explosives, otherwise they would not be able to blast their way in.”
But before he finished, all of a sudden, they heard several “bang” sound and the air vents were forced open. Subsequently, seven or eight can-like stuff dropped from above.
The Lieutenant General, seeing that the thick concentration of smoke continued to emerge from that can-like stuff, immediately went pale and shouted: “It’s a sleeping gas, quickly throw them out.”
When several soldiers rushed over to pick those can-like things, suddenly a semi-elliptical object was thrown at them.
“It’s a grenade, take cover.” One of the soldiers shouted and jumped to the side.
With a loud “bang” sound, the explosion forced all the people to roll to the side. Several soldiers near the explosion were covered with blood and horribly mangled.
Seeing the experiment room was like a battlefield, the Lieutenant General knew that it was all over for them.
As the anesthetic gas continued to spread, his people soon lost their movement. But at this time, nobody called out for help, they were just waiting with fear of what happened next.
Five minutes later, several men in black wearing gas masks jumped down from the vents. Armed with assault rifles, they coldly watched the people sitting on the ground.
“We surrender, please don’t kill us.” Feebly leaning against the wall, the Lieutenant General weakly said.
One of the men in black signaled the others, who then immediately started to collect the weapons from the Lieutenant General and his soldiers, and then guarded them.
That man in black then bent down and asked one of the researchers who was sitting on the floor: “How to open the door?”
Looking at the pistol that was against his abdomen, the researcher immediately spelled out the password in quivering voice.
When the door slowly rose, a large group of similarly dressed men came in from the outside.
The one commanding the men in black said to the man in black who was walking in: “Do according to the plan.”
That man nodded and immediately called several of his men to grab one those researchers.
“Don’t kill me, I am just a researcher here, this has nothing to do with me.” That fellow loudly begged for mercy.
“As long as you cooperate, I will not kill you. Now take us to the archive and storage area.”
Hearing this, the Lieutenant General’s face suddenly changed, They really come for those things.
However, even though he knew that, he has absolutely no way to stop them.
At this time, the commander of the men in black walked over to Dr. Seth and said: “Now take me to your lab. Remember, don’t play any tricks, my gun is very easy to fire.”
With a pale face, Dr. Seth took the several men in black to the laboratory.
Just before leaving, that man in black said to the other men in black: “If there is any suspicious movement, immediately execute on the spot.”
After opening the electronic door using his fingerprints, Dr. Seth took them to the central laboratory.
The lab was large. It has the size of a half football field. The inside was filled with all kinds of devices and biological specimens soaked in formalin.
The leading man in black carefully looked at those specimens and saw that there were several orangutans, apes, and monkeys.
Among them, chimpanzees have the largest number. But in the innermost row, there were ten samples, and all of them were human bodies. There were men and women of all colors and races. The most shocking were the two Asian and Black teenager’s bodies. Floating inside this anti-rot liquid with a strange color, their eyes were slightly opened, seemingly wanting to tell about something. He also found that their surface tissues were abnormal, but he did not know if those were from births or not.
Turning around to look at Dr. Seth, that man in black said: “Immediately turn on the central computer, we need to copy some data.” He knew that the data here was encrypted. If they did not open it by using the identification system, even if they forcefully took the hard drive, they would have no way to open it.
Hearing this, Dr. Seth’s face became even more ugly. He was very clear how confidential the data here is. If other people knew that he was the one who leaked it, even if he was being forced, he could not escape the responsibility.
Seemingly knowing what he was thinking, that man coldly said: “You have no choice. If you don’t cooperate, we will kill you and simply ask another person.”
Chapter 210 The Third Layer Part 3
Dr. Seth turned on the several computers next to the laboratory and entered the password at the login screen. One man in black brought two laptops and connected them to the main computer.
The nearby man in black looked at the information on another computer.
“Give your authority to open it.” The man black that was holding the notebook said to Dr. Seth.
Dr. Seth knew that he has no way to stop them and had to give his authority to open the file. The man in black closely stared at his action.
After a while, watching the constant copying of data, Dr. Seth felt a burst of bitterness in his throat. Even if these people did not kill him, the military people here would not let him off, at the very least, he would be imprisoned.
“How long will it take?” The leading man asked.
That man in black holding the laptop said: “Looking at the size of the file, we may need to wait for half an hour.”
The man frowned, “Is it that long? Nevermind, try to speed things up. You, open that.” He pointed at the vault-like metal door and said to Dr. Seth.
Although he already knew that this was an inevitable situation, Dr. Seth still cannot help but tremble.
Seeing his hesitant look, that man became impatient, “Hurry up. Don’t let me repeat the second times.”
After opening that heavy door, that man found that there was another metal door inside.
“It’s a cold storage.”
“I ask you what’s inside?”
“The original experimental bodies.”
The origin? The man did not think much, immediately ordered Dr. Seth to open that metal door.
The inside was indeed a cold storage. But there was nothing special to it, it’s just that, at the center of it, there were many cabinets. It was like a morgue cabinet.
The man pointed at Dr. Seth with a pistol and said: “Open it.”
With a pale face, Dr. Seth pulled one of the cabinets, revealing something that was wrapped in a plastic membrane.
Then, with trembling hands, he opened the zipper on that plastic membrane. After unzipping it, a surge of white cold air rose from the inside.
Seeing the thing inside, the man widened his eyes in surprise.
“What is that thing?” The man loudly asked.
Dr. Seth said with a lifeless voice: “It’s the mysterious being in the Roswell incident that the military called as ‘the coming.’”
The man could not help but took a deep breath and, after a while, said: “So to speak, fifty years ago, that rumor is true?”
“Yes.” Dr. Seth lowered his head and said.
On July 4, 1947, a suspicious unidentified object crashed at a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico, USA. The next day, a farmer 120 kilometers away from Roswell found metal objects scattered along 400 meters on a farm. Later he took the metal fragments and brought them over to a sheriff who then handed them to the Air Force base. The Air Force then sent Major Mathil and another officer to examine the scene.
They loaded a bunch of things back to the base for inspection.
At the same time, a civil engineer Gnady L who worked nearby found several oddly shaped corpses wearing gray tights scattered on the ground. When the Air Force received the news, they immediately blocked the area and removed the bodies away.
Here’s the really weird thing, a few days later the newspaper published that the Air Force claimed to have discovered a flying saucer on a ranch near Roswell, but soon, the newspaper clarified that the crashed object was just a conventional weather balloon. However, there were many witnesses, including senior military officers and well-known public figures, who claimed that they all have seen the flying saucer fell on the ranch.
Just a few years ago the US military published reports disclosing the true nature of the crashed aircraft, a surveillance balloon from Project Mogul. In the reports, this project mogul has nothing to do with aliens but a purely military intelligence project to spy on the Soviet Union. It was reported that the Roswell residents did not suffer from vertigo and they did see a flying saucer-like object. But the military said that it was just a saucer-like space probe used for supersonic experiments. And those “alien corpses” that were recovered by the military were nothing more than the experimental high altitude escape dummies.
This explanation received many criticisms, accusing the military of deliberately concealing and falsifying evidence to deceive the world.
Now, in front of that man’s eyes, the thing that he saw inside this ‘morgue’ cabinet was very similar to the evidence fifty years ago.
A humanoid corpse, yet thin and small. The whole bare body was covered with a yellowish-gray skin. The height is only one hundred centimeters. The head – which was long, big and slightly flattened – was without any hair. The facial features were also similar to human, except that the eyes were very large, which if fully opened would probably account for one-fifth of the whole face. The mouth was very small and without any teeth.
At first sight, the whole body was like a deformed child with progeria.
The man turned to Dr. Seth and said: “How many more of this?”
“There are a total of five, three of which have been dissected and used for experiments.”
The man wanted to ask a follow-up question but a man in black suddenly came and said: “Your excellency, the three is in a hurry to find you.”
“I know.” The man took Dr. Seth outside with him.
