Hearing this, Alex knew that he had almost achieved his goal, so he chose to leave in a hurry.
The reason why he was in such a hurry was that he had to take into account that he had said too much, and the second reason was that he could not take revenge when he saw his enemy. If he could not help saying that he had made a slip of the tongue or made a move in advance, the loss would outweigh the gain. As the saying went, he should not meet Jared before the time for revenge was ripe…
At about eleven o’clock in the evening, Alex returned to the villa from the hospital. After taking a shower, he was ready to sleep and rest. Suddenly, his mobile phone rang.
Seeing that it was Jiang Peng who called, Alex instantly became nervous. Jiang Peng was Ma Zhiyuan’s old comrade-in-arms. He was now working as the bodyguard of Francis in the Maliu Village, and he was protecting Francis with many of the brothers arranged by Xie Si. It was so late that he called. Something must have happened in the Maliu Village!
Alex didn’t dare to think too much and quickly picked up the phone. “Jiang Peng, what’s wrong?”
Jiang Peng’s slightly anxious voice came from the receiver, “Boss Cohen, a brother reported to me that two domestic off-road vehicles with city license plates just entered the village. They strolled around the village slowly and finally found a car to live in. There are six people in total, and they don’t look like tourists. Should I go and check out the situation?”
“Well… there’s no need. You just need to be on your guard.”
“That’s fine. If anything unexpected happens, we’ll take Uncle Cohen away from this village as soon as possible.”
“Thank you for your hard work.”
Alex thought that there were only six people on the other side. Even if they were going to deal with his father, Jiang Peng, the security guard, could deal with them, so he didn’t pay much attention to them. Now he focused all his attention on finding Jared and Pei Chong to take revenge.
Near noon the next day, Alex bought a lot of food and sent it to the military yard. When he was about to call Isla, Hunter, and the others for lunch, he suddenly received a call from Jared.
Alex couldn’t be bothered to answer Jared’s phone.
But now, he was waiting for news from Jared. He answered without hesitation and asked, “What’s the matter?”
Jared seemed to be in a good mood and said slowly, “Aren’t you in a hurry to take revenge on Pei Chong? The opportunity has come.”
“As far as I know, Pei Chong rushed to Maliu Village…”
“What? Magical Willow Village?”
“You know, Pei Chong has been targeted by the police. It’s not safe to hide in the city. It should be good to go to the countryside immediately, right? If you go there now, you will definitely meet him. But… he doesn’t want to see the police now, and he doesn’t even want to hear the alarm. So, you’d better…”
“Don’t worry, I’ll go alone… No, I have to take a driver.”
“That shouldn’t be a problem. Hang up!”
Jared hung up the phone directly.
Alex immediately called Big Ken out and left the military courtyard, heading straight for Maliu Village.
Only now did Alex realize that Jared should have arranged Pei Chong to rush to Maliu Village last night. It had to be said that they were very good at choosing places. Maliu Village was his hometown and they had an appointment there. It was obvious that they wanted to threaten his father not to call the police or bring helpers.
He knew this, but he didn’t hesitate.
Big Ken also realized the seriousness of the problem. He took out his special skills and drove the car on the rugged mountain road, almost flying. At noon, the sun was high in the sky, and the temperature was still high. Few people went out, and they didn’t encounter a few cars along the way. It was smooth and unimpeded.
However, just as they were about to reach Maliu Village, a rock the size of a washbasin suddenly rolled down from the slope of the road and hit the place where the car was a second ago. If it was even half a second later, the stone might have hit the car, and the consequences would be unimaginable.
“What a close call. I almost got hit. If I were to be smashed to death by a falling stone, we would have suffered a great loss…”
Alex knew that it was not rare to encounter falling stones on the mountain road, but he was still scared.
However, Big Ken shook his head and said, “Young Master, it may not be natural… Sit still!”
“Ah? You mean…” Just as Alex was about to say if he had been ambushed, he suddenly saw a pile of stones rolling down from the slope ahead. He quickly grabbed the armrest and shouted at the same time, “Brother Big Ken, be careful!”
Big Ken wanted to speed up and rush out of this dangerous area, but judging from the speed of the car, the speed of rolling stones, and the distance between the car and the stone landing point, it seemed that he could no longer rush over. Without hesitation, he quickly stepped on the brake.
When the car stopped, Alex noticed that there were also a lot of stones on the road behind.
Alex got out of the car and looked around, only to find that everything was blocked.
The car definitely couldn’t drive away for a while. If they wanted to leave here, they could only walk!
Then, Alex saw three masked men rushing up from the hillside.
Big Ken quickly approached Alex and said softly, “We don’t know the details of the other party for the time being. Be careful.”
Alex nodded and took a step forward. He knew that the other party must be coming for him, and he couldn’t avoid it even if he wanted to.
The three masked men got off the road and stopped about three meters away from Alex.
Neither side was in a hurry to speak. They were looking at each other.
Alex found that the three people on the other side really had their own characteristics.
The leader looked to be about 30 years old, with a medium figure and an ordinary face, but he was bald. The two behind him, one fat and the other thin, were very easy to distinguish. However, although their figures were different, their eyes were the same cold. There was no trace of emotion in them. Those who did not know might think they were robots.
The bald head stared at Alex for a few seconds, then turned to look at Big Ken and said coldly, “It’s none of your business. If you leave quickly, we can let you go.”
Big Ken sneered and said casually, “If I let you go now, will you leave?”
“I’ve given you the opportunity. If you don’t cherish it, then don’t regret it later.”
“I regret it? It’s hard to say who will regret it.”
Big Ken was not in a hurry. He deliberately fought with the bald head because he was waiting for help.
Before getting out of the car, he had called Jiang Peng. It only took him more than ten minutes to walk from the village.
The bald man seemed to have seen through Big Ken’s mind and stopped talking to him. Instead, he said to Alex, “Young man, you are the youngest target I have ever met. I really didn’t expect that you would be younger than me. On account of the first impression you gave me, I can make an exception and give you three minutes to leave your last words. In addition, I can leave you a whole body.”
“You’re talking big. Should I thank you for your kindness?” Alex asked expressionlessly, “Tell me, who sent you here?”
“Do you think I’ll betray my client?”
“Aren’t you sure that the two of us will die here today? Even if you tell us a big secret, we won’t have a chance to spread it out. But in fact, you don’t dare to tell your employer. It seems that… your confidence in words is fake.”
“Cut the crap. Hurry up and leave your last words. You still have… two minutes and eighteen seconds.”
Big Ken approached Alex again and said softly, “Young Master, these three people in front of us are not ordinary people. They may be more powerful than the two subordinates of Tang Qingsong whom I met before. They should be professional killers that Pei Chong found. Don’t underestimate them. First, try to stall for time. Jiang Peng should be on his way here!”
On the other side, the bald man raised his hand and looked at the time. He twisted his neck and said, “Well, time is up. You can choose to kill yourself or I will kill you.”
“You’re not the only one who wants to kill me. But not all people who want to kill me can achieve their goal.” Alex stared at the bald head and said lightly, “But… in my opinion, you’re still different from those who made trouble for me before.”
“What’s the difference?”
“Well… you’re the only one without hair.”
The bald man frowned and said with hollow eyes, “At this time, do you still have the mood to sneer? It seems that you have a good mentality, so I don’t have to feel guilty. Since you want to challenge us, then come on. Show me your ability and let me see how much weight the young people nowadays have! Go!”
The thin man took out a machete and the fat man showed a dagger.
At the same time, they took a step forward and rushed out fiercely…
