Chapter 1246: Search!

Her head was starting to feel dizzy, too. The scenery had slowly begun to blur and fleet before her eyes unknowingly.
She was finally overwhelmed!
The world around her turned dark all of a sudden.
Just when she thought she would collapse, she saw a troop hurrying toward her in her hazy vision.
Narrowing her eyes, she shook her head to try to clear the fog in her head.
Gaining a better look, she could see Vermilion Bird in full-combat uniform and Peaceful Tyrant walking in her direction!
This was like a shot of adrenaline as she picked up the pace and ran toward them with Mu Yichen on her back.
Vermilion Bird first caught sight of a girl rushing toward them with a child on her back from the end of the mountain road. She squinted to examine further and waved her hand wildly when she realized who she was. “Luka, send someone over! It’s Lisa!”
The man quickly dispatched a team over.
The girl persevered until she saw him in front of her and the team took the boy from her back before she swirled and fell to the ground in a heap.
Alarmed, the man stooped and carried her in his arms.
“…” She opened her mouth to speak but before she could say anything, her eyes fluttered and she fainted.
Holding up to now, she had gone way beyond her limits!
Luka called out urgently a few more times but she had already turned unconscious.
Vermilion Bird was disconcerted to see that there were just two kids when she arrived at the scene.
“Where is Yun Tianyou?”
The man shook his head in silence. “…”
With only two children, one remained missing.
Frowning, the woman barked at her microphone earpiece, “Command, this is Vermilion Bird; please send Yun Tianyou’s coordinates!”
The temporary command post immediately sent over the boy’s coordinates to her laptop.
Actually, when the children did not turn up at gate by the bridge as originally agreed, she had already requested the command post to send their location.
However, she was told that the signals were inconsistent. As the jungle had poor wireless coverage, the location might not be accurate.
Thus, the moment she lost contact with Lisa, she sent people into the jungle to search it.
Strangely, Yun Tianyou’s signal frequency was unusual.
When they arrived at the location, his signal was several kilometers away.
This meant that he was heading north.
Hence, she had someone guard the rendezvous point, only to end up with the following outcome.
When her people arrived at the last known location, they discovered a trap more than five meters deep.
There was no one inside the deep hole when she shone a torchlight down it; only a blood-stained coat was found.
Her face was mild with temper after she examined the jacket salvaged by her men.
“What happened?!” Gong Jie’s voice could be heard through the earpiece. “Where is he?”
She buckled on the earpiece and replied, “We lost him! Please send the coordinates over again.”
“We lost the signal.”
“Lost?!” She was perturbed. “How could that be?”
Luka reminded her at one side. “The chip implanted in him is biodegradable. It will be absorbed into the body once it exceeds the time limit.”
Vermilion Bird clenched her fists angrily.
Turning around, she coolly commanded, “Send more people over! He should be near so do a carpet sweep for him!”
