Chapter 1361: Father and Son Fighting over a Hostage (2)
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Not only were Mercenary Paradise’s people fierce and aggressive, with a dozen or so people, the opponents also outnumbered his team. If both sides had an open strife, it would be strenuous and unrewarding.
Thus, he quickly signaled his men to send their coordinates back to the headquarters.
Vermilion Bird, on her end, noticed this little action with a sweeping glance and pulled out her gun at once. Swiftly loading it, she fired a shot and a bullet pierced through the air to hit the wireless communication device on the person’s hand with a bang!
The bullet blasted the device apart with absolute precision, scattering debris all over the ground.
The man was shocked to have his palm grazed by a bullet, which left a horrifying bloody mark behind.
He looked up furiously, only to find the woman coolly keeping her gun trained at him with a contemptuous smirk.
Her action had antagonized the deputy. “What do you guys want?”
“Hand the man over and get lost!” barked the female mercenary indifferently. Carrying herself tall against the chilly wind on her perfectly straight and long legs, the woman’s grave and stern eyes shone brightly like a mountainous wild cat!
Despite not knowing what was happening outside, Mu Lianjue, who was being held captive in the car, noticed that the vehicle had stopped for quite some time.
He struggled to sit up and shift himself to the window. Curving his spine, he rubbed the blindfold against the car seat and made use of the friction to shift it until he could peep out the window. What he saw left him widening his eyes in disbelief.
He was apparently aghast by the situation outside.
Both groups faced each other with weapons drawn. The situation soon escalated into a stalemate and no one dared to act rashly.
Even though there were some differences in strength, it was not to the extent of a large disparity as they were all mercenaries from top forces. Nothing could be gained if they were to come into blows.
Coming from a well-trained background with a wealth of combat experience, deputy Zhou knew that it was only wise for his team to bide their time and retreat for the sake of advancing.
Although the wireless communication device was spoiled now, the signal had still been sent out.
Mu Yazhe, who was on his way, could not help frowning when he received the signal and learned that a mysterious group had appeared at the highway junction. The said group seemed bent on taking away his captive by completely blocking the roads.
A mysterious group?!
This piece of news astonished him.
Even though he did not send many of his men, each of them came from one of the world’s most sophisticated mercenary organizations. They were among the personnel he was grooming which had great potential.
However, according to the limited information he had received from his deputy’s men, they appeared to be having a crisis.
While he was surprised by the news, he swiftly deployed additional manpower and a limousine to rush over the place.
Clearly, he had no idea about the mysterious group’s origin.
His son had also clearly underestimated his ability, thinking that he was unaware of this matter!
The intel about Mu Lianjue flying to San Francisco the next day was obtained by hacking into Mu Linfeng’s email.
The latter apparently wanted to have the former absconded abroad. Naturally, there was no way Youyou would let that succeed.
It would not be so easy to control him once he was out of the country.
That was why he could not let him escape!
Disregarding the man sending an assassin after him, the fact that he had tortured his mother and older brother meant that they had a score to settle!
