Chapter 1206: Ace Leader, Vermilion Bird

Her slim figure remained apparent despite being dressed in a form-fitting camouflage outfit with a bulletproof vest over it.
A triangular bayonet shone dully at the back of her waist belt while a coldly glinting Desert Eagle was quietly buckled to her far left, on standby.
Her long slender legs were tightly covered by a pair of ocean camouflage pants, and she wore a dashing pair of military boots on her feet; a razor-sharp dagger was hidden in one of them.
On her iron-clad wrist was an exquisite engraving of a vermilion bird covered in fire.
The evening breeze blew across the room from the ajar windows.
Her short, blond hair fluttered in the wind and swept against her cold, beautiful face.
Under her handsome brows was an evil and alluring pair of almond-shaped eyes.
This young girl was none other than one of the ace leaders of Mercenary Paradise, Vermilion Bird.
She was also his personal subordinate.
He only frowned in reply.
Vermilion Bird served him a cup of tea expressionlessly.
He gradually calmed down after a few sips of tea.
He glanced up at the cold woman standing quietly at his side.
He called out faintly, “Vermilion Bird.”
“Where’s the little lad?”
“That imp, Yun Tianyou.”
She answered, “As an exchange hostage, Youyou is now heading to the target destination.”
“When will the rescue operation commence?”
“Tonight. It will start in the wee hours.”
He continued. “Is the positioning successful?”
“The precise positioning has been obtained. All our men are already stationed there; we’ll act in the early morning.”
He arched a brow as a teasing smirk appeared on his lips. “That lad is capable, indeed!”
It turned out that the boy had done a thorough preparation before heading there as a hostage.
He was entirely equipped with positioning devices.
His necklace, watch, and even buttons were implanted with mini positioning devices.
However, Mu Lianjue’s subordinates were very cautious and had a high degree of vigilance; they were from the military, after all. Hence, the positioning devices on him were all removed.
He expected this, though, so he was not surprised.
Those were nothing but bluff items to dispel the vigilance of those people!
As soon as he returned from the Mu residence, he ordered a doctor, who had worked with him before, to implant a nano positioning chip into the epidermal layer of his shoulder while he was treating his wounds.
This nanochip was a super chip that he had developed; not only was it hidden under his flesh, it was highly capable of positioning in the range of a hundred meters.
This nearly dark tech invention of his had not been released to the public yet.
Mu Lianjue expectedly used high-tech shielding devices to jam all positioning signals so that the hideout could not be tracked.
Unfortunately, those were all useless against his super nanochip invention.
There was bound to be a loophole.
This was also why he took the initiative to suggest the exchange of hostages.
His mother and twin did not have any positioning devices on them.
Even if they had, they would be jammed, too.
In such a large area, finding where the hostages were kept would indubitably be a needle in a haystack.
In fact, he could always employ a big group of people to do a carpet search, but even if this method was successful in locating his family, it would also inadvertently alert the enemy.
