This large-scale kidnapping case, which had hardly leaked a whisper since it happened, happened very quietly in the central area of Alpha. Seeing the magnificent building, as Mike said, it had long been full of powerful guests, who were well known faces, rich second generations and officials everywhere.
It was long past the time for the host to come out, but none of the guests had begun doubting where Ellie was. On the contrary, each of them stood quietly in their place.
Everybody was standing quietly. They didn’t communicate, they didn’t move. As Chen Bai got closer, he could see that their eyes were scattered. They looked like puppets as they all stood throughout the banquet hall. They looked weird and fake.
Up on the second floor, there were nearly five or six people standing in succession, wearing identical gowns. They could not see each other’s face clearly and they still had a shining stone in their hands. One by one, the stones were shining with strange light, reflecting each other. The whole scene looked like a picture. A cult would have looked the same.
Mike might also have to thank him for his conservative choice to observe for a while when he found something wrong. Assuming that he was a little nervous at that time, or that he had the courage to run over and see, his soul would probably have been scared half to death and the rest of the story might not have gone so smoothly.
Not to mention informing Marshal, that when he was a little closer to the building, he would probably feel overweight and when he stood to see what was going on inside the building, he was basically in the same condition as the people inside. Because of the frequency of mental disturbance, any experienced hunter in the Omega Margin would find that the magnetite in the area was the same as the world magnetite came from.
On the second floor of the building, the cult lifted their heads up again. People stood in twos and threes. Unlike those on the first floor, they all seemed to be awake and a small man with a helmet on his head, who had just come in through the door asked, “What’s the situation?”
The one he asked looked quite strong, but when faced with the small man, he still lowered his head slightly and responded, “It’s all normal.”
“Where’s Heinz?” The little man asked.
“Just left.” The man said.
When the little man heard this, he squinted suddenly and the bright light flashed in his eyes. He gave out a strange laugh. “Good, let the waste below be prepared. After five minutes, let someone go out.”
Next to him, another slightly taller man listened and immediately showed a sympathetic smile on his face. The next second, the list of guests for the banquet appeared in front of the small man, as if the taller man was asking him to pick something out.
“Five minutes?” The stronger man was stunned. “Didn’t you say twenty minutes before? And they had just set up the magnetic array; it’ll work for only half an hour. To remove one person and have it continue to operate, the magnetic array’s ability is likely to become thinner…”
“It’s dark.” The small man’s harsh and shrill voice interrupted him suddenly, “Do you not quite understand your identity yet?”
The next second, when the little man jumped out of his chair, he seemed to understand something and looked down again as if the next thing had happened countless times.
“Lost dogs are ineligible to speak,” the man said as he walked in front of him. “Do you think you’re still the senior agent of Berkeley?” As he spoke, he reached out and opened his big black helmet, drew the corner of his lips against his face and put his hand on his face. “Do you want me to take a picture of the red stamp on your neck?”
As he spoke, he stretched out his hand to twist his neck. His hands were full of energy. He twisted Big Black’s neck until it made a crisp noise and then stopped.
At this time, the original mark on Big Black’s neck was thoroughly exposed to the man. It was a black tattoo of c-1, which seemed to have been printed for some years. But now, the tattoo was marked with a red fork and a D on it.
The slender man, who was standing next to Brother Rat, looked at the situation below and said with a smile, “Brother Rat, it’s almost time. I’ll let them go out alone?”
“No, no, no.” The man called Brother Rat smiled, flashed a brilliant light in his eyes and pointed to the cult in the room, “Just him, isn’t he unwilling to let others suffer this crime? Then he will go.”
The big man hung on the side, his legs and his arms tightening up.
“Get out of here.” Brother Rat said, laughing. “Chen Bai has been dead for three years. Now, you homeless dogs dare to not take us seriously? This is the first time that you’ve been transferred to our team. After that, you’ll have to bear it.”
Before, Big Black kept his eyes down when he said every word, as if he had taken it for granted. It was the same that he told him to go down and go out for those people. But only when he spit out the words ‘Chen Bai’, Big Black raised his head again, as if stimulated and his eyes almost surged with blood.
“You – –” Brother Rat was angry when he saw his expression. Just as he was about to start, a man’s cry came from behind him.
“NO! Brother Rat!” It was the tall, thin man who just wanted to get him a list. He looked at the men in robes on the second floor and the stones in their hands with his chin on his hand. “The magnetite cracked.”
“What?!” When Brother Rat listened, he was stunned for a moment. He turned his head and ran to the railing. “What’s the matter? How can the magnetite crack? What’s wrong with their mental fluctuations?” As he spoke, he looked carefully at the small stones and saw that there were real cracks on the small stones.
“No, it’s impossible… This is the best batch in the base. It’s specially approved. It’s impossible to break before their brains are corrupted several times.” Another younger brother on the other side said, “Moreover, even if there are fluctuations, it is impossible to cause the magnetite to fracture, ah?”
Magnetite breaking, in the case of such a large-scale brain breakthrough, may only be because… the interruption was broken?
“Brother Rat!” Just as the idea flashed through the minds of the group, one of them suddenly growled and pointed to a corner of the banquet hall, “That man is moving!”
This action was completely beyond the scope of brain interference, that is to say, someone was gradually getting out of their control?
“What’s the situation? Wasn’t everything normal before? Who can break the interference array made by the five magnetites? It’s impossible!” Brother Rat stood beside the railing and did not feel well.
Standing behind him, the silent Big Black’s eyes suddenly lit up and stared downstairs for a moment, then the next second, suddenly turned over.
From his point of view, there was a window close to the ground in front of him. He could see the outside all the time. Big Black’s vision was very good. Although it was only for a moment, he could also see the figure flashing under the bushes.
First he froze, as if he hadn’t responded, then suddenly his eyes were wide open, his fists were tight and he almost bit his lips before he did anything out of the ordinary.
“It’s not very right, Brother Rat.” The tall and thin man, as before, spoke with a strong sense of altruism and had not seemed at all nervous about the present situation.
“No, it’s impossible. Has anyone done anything?” The sweat on Brother Rat’s head started to drip. “This… No one can do it!”
