After hanging up the phone, Alex turned around in a hurry and walked out. After a few steps, he suddenly remembered that he had not finished talking with Felix yet. He turned back and said to Felix, “I have something urgent to deal with, so I have to deal with it right away. When I am done with my work, I will come to you to talk in detail.”
Felix waved his hand and said, “Mr. Cohen, you go ahead with your work. It’s not a big deal. Don’t worry.”
Alex took Big Ken back to the car. While looking for a convenient route to the target village on navigation, he asked, “Brother Big Ken, do you want to call Wu Di?”
“Let’s fight one.” Big Ken replied without hesitation, “I haven’t fought with that mutant named Meng Fanyong yet, so I don’t know how strong he is. Besides, he has companions, so I may not be able to deal with him alone. I can rest assured if there are a few more evolutions.”
“Then… forget it. I’ll fight.”
Alex chose the route, immediately took out his mobile phone, dialed Group Leader Pang’s number, and asked Group Leader Pang to report the important situation that Xie Si had just reported to Wu Di. In less than three minutes, Wu Di called him personally to confirm the situation. Knowing that he and Big Ken were also going there, he agreed to meet at the intersection to the countryside and went together.
He wanted to say that they didn’t need to meet, but Wu Di hung up the phone too quickly, so he didn’t give him a chance. He put down the phone and asked tentatively, “Brother Big Ken, what do you mean by saying this? When you meet a rival in love, you are particularly jealous. You met Wu Di, so you won’t fight, will you?”
Big Ken shook his head and replied, “No. The contradiction between Wu Di and I was accumulated when we were young and frivolous. At that time, we were very naive and couldn’t figure out many small problems. Now it’s different. Our thoughts are mature and we have thought it through. If we don’t take it easy because we can’t erase our face, no one would like to say soft words first. We might have reconciled a long time ago.”
“I see. I was overthinking…”
Hearing Big Ken’s words, Alex was relieved.
Soon, the two sides would meet at the intersection.
There were only three people on Wu Di’s side, all of them his subordinates, as well as evolutions. As for team leader Pang, he also wanted to go, but he forcefully stayed in the city. Firstly, it was related to the battle between mutants, so ordinary police officers like team leader Pang couldn’t help at all. Secondly, if anything unexpected happened in the city, someone had to deal with it.
Alex and Wu Di chatted for a while and were ready to get in their cars.
Wu Di opened the car door and suddenly stopped what he was doing. He turned back and said to Big Ken with a poker face, “When we’re done with our work, let’s have a good chat?”
“No problem.” Big Ken readily agreed. “I haven’t changed my number. You can call me at any time.”
“I see. Let’s go!”
Wu Di didn’t say anything more. He immediately got in the car, followed Alex’s Lamborghini, and galloped away.
Big Ken was really good at driving. On the winding and winding mountain road to the countryside, the average speed of driving had reached 60 kilometers per hour. The driver did not change his face and looked as usual. However, Alex, who was driving, was nervous all the way. His hands holding the armrest were sweating.
The driver of the car at the back also had two skills. He drove an ordinary off-road vehicle whose performance was far inferior to Lamborghini’s, but he did not leave the line. He kept a distance of about five parking spaces with Lamborghini. He would not lose the car, and at the same time, he reserved room for dealing with sudden situations.
About 80 minutes later, the two cars arrived at the village entrance of the target village.
Alex had contacted them in advance, and Xie Si had arranged for the brothers in this village to receive them at the entrance of the village.
As soon as Big Ken slowed down, he saw a young man waving to them under a crooked neck tree not far ahead. At the same time, he ran over quickly. He ran to the side of the car, nodded to Big Ken, and then looked at Alex. He said respectfully, “Hello, Mr. Cohen! My name is Erlei. Brother Si asked me to pick you up here…”
Alex nodded and asked Erlei to get in the car. He handed over a cigarette and said, “Thank you for your hard work, brother. You are responsible for leading the way and introducing the specific situation to us.”
“Okay… okay, Mr. Cohen!”
Erlei obviously didn’t expect that Alex would serve him a cigarette and call him brother. He was so excited that his face turned red. He didn’t light the cigarette, but stuck it in his ear. He took a deep breath, calmed down, and continued, “On the other side of the village, there is a small inn, mainly facing the tourists here. This morning, according to Brother Si’s instructions, I and my brothers began the second search in the village. Yesterday, we searched once, but found nothing. I thought we wouldn’t get anything today, but I didn’t expect that when we just walked to the inn, we saw the target car…”
“Ahem… and then?”
Alex wanted to hear the key points, but he couldn’t interrupt. He could only listen patiently.
Erlei was also a little embarrassed. He scratched his head and said with an embarrassed smile, “I’m sorry, Mr. Cohen. I was too excited to see you. My mind was a little confused and I said a lot of nonsense incoherently… Let’s get straight to the point. When I just arrived at the village entrance, the target and target were still in the hotel.”
“How many people are there on the other side?”
“Well… are they all wearing masks?”
“No, only the target is still wearing a mask, and there is no other person.”
“I see. Brother Erlei, when you take us to the destination later, hurry home with your brothers and don’t stay near the hotel. The car behind is taken by special police. In order to catch the target, they may shoot. The bullet has no eyes. If we accidentally hurt our own people, it won’t be worth it.”
“Okay, Mr. Cohen!”
Erlei wanted to help, but he didn’t dare to disobey Alex, so he could only agree.
In fact, Alex was not afraid that Erlei and his brothers would be accidentally injured by the special police, but he didn’t want them to participate in today’s battle at all. As he spoke, he took out his wallet, took out all the cash in it, and handed it to Erlei. “You have been living in the countryside all the time, right? I have about 3,000 yuan. You can share it with your brothers and buy some delicious food and drinks.”
“Ah? President Cohen, how can we spend your money? No, no…”
“If I ask you to take it, just take it as a reward from Xie Si.”
Without a second thought, Alex stuffed the money into Erlei’s hands.
While they were talking, they arrived at their destination. Erlei pointed at a signboard about 30 meters away and said, “It’s the Xinlong Hotel. The car is parked in the yard. You can see it when you get to the door!”
“I see. Hurry up and leave with your brothers!”
Alex asked Big Ken to stop the car at the side and send Erlei away. Then he got out of the car to reconcile with Wu Di and introduced the situation.
Wu Di immediately made arrangements for his two subordinates. One went to the back of the hotel, and the other went to the opposite side, blocking all possible escape routes. Only in this way could they make sure everything was safe. Everything was ready. Wu Di winked at Alex and Big Ken, and the three of them walked to the hotel together.
As Erlei said, as soon as Alex walked to the hotel sign, he saw the target car.
However, there was no one in the car. The whole yard was empty.
Alex thought about it and went to ask the owner of the hotel which room Meng Fanyong lived in, but he was stopped by Wu Di. “Mr. Cohen, we still don’t know what’s going on inside. Don’t go in first. Besides, the other party may recognize us. In order to prevent us from alerting the enemy before we see them, it’s better to find a way to lure them out before they find us.”
“The problem is… how to lead them?”
“As long as we don’t expose ourselves in advance, we can do anything.”
“Well…” Alex touched his chin and thought for a while. He accidentally saw the broken brick in the corner. Suddenly, he made up his mind. He quickly picked up half of the brick and turned around. He gestured at the target car a few times and said to Wu Di, “Do you think this method is feasible?”
“Let’s give it a try!”
“Okay! Then you should stick close to the wall and hide first!”
After Big Ken and Wu Di hid, they stared at the target car and calculated the distance. Then, they picked up the brick and smashed it hard on the target car. His strength was not small, and the rear windshield was directly smashed into pieces. As the car rang with an ear-piercing alarm, the window of a house on the third floor of the hotel was suddenly pushed open.
The next second, a familiar face came into Alex’s sight…
