Mike, Marshal Heinz’ assistant, had fallen into self-doubt for the first time in his 30-year life. Yes, eyesight, Mike felt that his ability to look at people seemed to be in considerable trouble.
For example, when Marshal returned to the army six months ago, he received a notice of transfer. At that time, he thought that the national hero would be a man of rigorous personality, but in fact, according to his experience of nearly two years of work, Marshal himself could not catch up with the Marshal’s vigorous popularity at all. Instead, he was not a loose man.
For example, when the posts about Marshal’s fiance came out, Mike was shocked. Even when he came home, he could not help feeling with his wife that even if Marshal was more unrestrained, she was definitely not the kind of female sex that Marshal had put on the posts. The two men were just from heaven to earth, always matching genetically. There must be something wrong with the premise of Divine Realm.
Then when he saw the real man today, he felt as if he had looked away again.
The man who followed Marshal down from the armour looked straightlaced, with a delicate look that was totally inconsistent with mediocrity in his hands and feet. At least Mike could not help but be attracted by him.
After stepping down from the armour, the man stood in the middle of a row of buildings and peered through the grass towards Miss Ellie’s banquet.
Mike didn’t know if Marshal had told him where the banquet was held before, but he could feel that the other side’s eyes were really very accurate, and those sharp eyes, Mike even wondered if he had looked directly at Miss Ellie’s room.
Mike himself was not a very successful person, but in the army, and beside the Marshal, he had dealt with many cows, ghosts, snakes and gods¹ all the year round. Mike was able to discern that kind of breath which was different from normal people.
“Have you been waiting here the whole time?” Just when Mike was deeply doubtful whether the unmarried partner was the same as the poster, a soft voice came into his ear.
“… Ah?” The voice sounded so special that Mike couldn’t help but wonder, “Oh, no, I moved here after I notified Marshal that something was wrong and I was afraid of being too close to him.”
“Where was it originally?” Chen Bai asked again.
This kind of question, in fact, Mike could not answer. How could he say that he is also the supreme commander of the military, Marshal’s direct commander, in fact, even a general standing in front of him, he has the right not to answer?
But somehow, Chen Bai’s question made him want to answer.
Mike, thinking of this, looked up at Heinz and found that the latter was still looking at the on-site monitoring he had just transferred, without interrupting him.
So Mike thought about it, turned out a screen, pointed up, and said, “It’s about this place, and I wanted to contact my friends around Miss Ellie first to fix the time, because in the near future… It’s a bit too much work, so I want to go back as soon as possible, but I don’t think things are right until I find that I can’t get through anyway.”
“No, it’s a work account.” Mike answered, apparently afraid that Chen Bai did not understand the doorway, and then said, “He is Miss Ellie’s bodyguard, it is impossible to shut down during work, and most of them will reply the first time.”
Chen Bai looked up at the magnificent-looking building not far away. “Is that the bodyguard you mentioned earlier who interrupted and hijacked Miss Ellie?”
“Yes,” Mike said in more detail, “that man’s name is Jenas. He used to be one of the soldiers in the army, so he had a command of the army. Some of the passwords of the Ministry, I only know about the situation in general through those decoding, specific… For fear of being discovered, I did not venture to look at it.”
“You can go and see it.” As soon as Mike’s words were finished, Chen Bai said directly. After that, he manipulated the building image on the screen and looked at it from various angles.
“What?” Mike seems to be a little confused about what he meant.
“I said, you can go and see it from the beginning.” Chen Bai said as he looked at the time on his wristwatch. “The other party should have noticed your existence long ago.”
Mike was stunned. “No, it’s impossible. I stopped after I found I couldn’t connect and didn’t move on. I also participated in the investigation and anti-investigation training of the military, and even took it…”
“It has nothing to do with those.” Chen Bai shook his head and interrupted Mike’s words, pinching his eyebrows. “Have you ever wondered why a group who dared to hijack the little daughter of a general of merit on such a special occasion and had the ability to control the whole venue and cut off the signal of the venue could easily be interrupted by a bodyguard?”
Mike was shocked. “That’s because Jenas is not an ordinary bodyguard. He’s very strong. Maybe he made a movement and let other guests find it, which led to the interruption of the other party’s plan…”
Mike was stunned when he said that.
It was the birthday party of the youngest daughter of the honorable general. Most of the people who went to the party were well-known people from all walks of life. The most important ones were the generals under the army. If the group really had to stop planning because the guests so much spiritual strength would be needed. Controller, how can the other party be able to remain in control of the situation in the face of danger?
“It’s still very difficult to control such a large site even if there’s enough preparations in advance, and since your friends have broken their plans, they should be closely monitored. It’s impossible to send messages to you from a site where the signal is interrupted.”
“What you want to say is…” Again and again, there was reason for Mike to subconsciously change his appellation.
“It’s not kidnapping in itself, but hijacking. It’s the original purpose to cause a great sensation and form a transaction. Whether it’s interrupted by a bodyguard or intermittent signals, only in this way can we explain these clearly.”
Chen Bai’s faint voice came into Mike’s ear. After a long time, he returned to his mind and cried again, “It’s impossible. If it’s really a hijacking, the more hostages, the better. They should put me in. Why should I have doubts? Then…”
As Mike spoke, his voice suddenly stopped and his eyes stared as big as a brass bell.
“Then the Marshal came.” Chen Bai looked at him and finished the remaining half sentence for him. At last, he turned his eyes and landed on Heinz who had not spoken aloud.
Heinz, who attends Ellie’s birthday party every year, had to be absent this year just because he wanted to meet his unmarried partner. The whole process can’t be overstated by reporters. People with a little relationship can make his unabashed journey clear in the afternoon.
But even if Heinz did not come, he would send his subordinates to give gifts according to the importance he attached to Ellie in the past years. When his subordinates found something wrong, they would also choose to inform Marshal directly because of Heinz’ attitude towards Ellie in the past. So the next thing is basically logical.
“The logic is smooth.” After receiving Chen Bai’s eyes, Heinz commented without pain.
Chen Bai’s almost zero reaction time made a flattered expression, and then said, “Just like to read some reasoning novels, just subconsciously…”
“Xiao Bai.” Heinz suddenly interrupted Chen Bai’s words. He did not jokingly shout for his wife’s love this time. Instead, Chen Bai was stunned by the formal tone.
But he quickly responded, “Ah?”
“When you stay with me, you don’t need to be too formal. You can do whatever you want.” Heinz said, looking back again at Chen Bai with his pale blue eyes.
His eyes are really very shallow. In the past, numerous newspapers and periodicals have commented that they are flirtatious eyes. Today Chen Bai stands in front of him, but he reads an unprecedented caution and seriousness from those eyes.
“Marshal…” Mike on the other side could not help but bow his head. He followed Marshal for so long that he did not notice the problem in the first place. Jenas was his good friend for many years. He believed him anyway, so he never doubted it at all.
But for a soldier who is likely to go to battle at any time, it is very fatal that he cannot sensitively smell danger and accurately find the problem.
“Go back and write a 10,000-word review. I’ll receive it by tomorrow morning.” Heinz looked at him, said a few words lightly, then turned to Chen Bai and said, “I’ll have to go out later. You wait here for me. You can’t run around. If there’s anything, I’ll call the wave frequency I sent you before. It’s a private account. Will it be answered and heard?”
It seems that Chen Bai hadn’t heard such words for a long time. Chen Bai nodded after he was stunned.
“Go out? Where are you going?” Standing next to him, Mike seemed to be immersed in a ten thousand-word review flying across the sky. He didn’t understand how things suddenly changed.
“Didn’t Xiao Bai just say that? It’s not kidnapping, it’s a kidnapping that wants to achieve the purpose of exchange.” As Heinz explained, he turned around and started the armor. The light on the armor seemed to be affected by some wave frequencies and became intermittent.
“But they haven’t said what to exchange yet?” Mike’s eyes widened. He always felt that his world was out of step with them. Why didn’t they understand him?
“I’ll know in a minute.” This time it was Chen Bai who answered Mike.
After the latter had said this, he looked up at the quiet building not far away. In the bustling central area of Venus, he was like a huge, creeping beast, waiting quietly for his prey.
And in the same second as Chen Bai’s words, Mike’s caller rang.
