Benji, the man with a fierce face, stared at Lipper and sneered,
“Picking a fight? You think I wouldn’t find out that you sell a dozen magic cores to Team Seal?”
Fang Linyan felt baffled at this time, and he immediately said,
“Hey hey, who do you think you are? What’s your business with Vulture selling Team Seal the magic cores?”
When Benji heard Fang Linyan’s words, he immediately tilted his head and looked over, and he said word by word,
“Are you looking for death, boy?”
Fang Linyan replied fearlessly,
“I’m standing right here. If you think you’re that powerful, you’re welcome to try.”
Ben Qi’s face turned ashen. He was about to speak when suddenly a voice came from beside him,
“I don’t think Wrench is wrong at all. What’s your business with Vulture selling things to us?”
Fang Linyan threw a sideglance and immediately realized it was one of the big men from Team Seal speaking. He walked toward Benji and pushed him,
“Fuck, you have any opinion on what we Seals buy?”
Benji looked at Lipper and Fang Linyan grimly, then he turned around and walked off. He knew that this wasn’t the time to fight with words. Since everyone had to stay in this world for another week, he should wait until after the third mission was announced. That was the time to take revenge!
Now that the troublemaker left, Lipper and Fang Linyan naturally went to meet up with the Seals.
The Seals were quite a punctual group of people. They all arrived by 8:55 pm, then they took the roll call. By 9 pm, they officially set off, not a minute late. Their demeanor and actions were extremely military-styled.
After about 3 kilometers, Fang Linyan started to feel that looked familiar.
Then he realized that they had come to the Thames River, and they seemed to have just passed the Giant Anchor bar. They traveled closer and closer to the point where he first entered this world.
Besides Lipper and him, there were 2 others people following them. The other 2 people didn’t seem familiar with Lipper, and they gathered and whispered amongst themselves.
By now, the Seals stopped outside a house, and it seemed like they were setting up something.
The 4 idles, including Fang Linyan, consciously stood far away.
Fang Linyan looked at the 2 people whispering beside him, then he poked Lipper, saying in a low voice,
“Hey, how did you meet the Seals?”
Lipper put it succinctly,
“In the last world, we once fought side by side. At that time, a very important mission item was snatched away, and I went to chase it back.”
Fang Linyan said suddenly,
“So it turns out to be an old friendship. But you must have paid a huge price this time to be able to bring me along. “
Lipper mentioned seemingly indifferently,
“It’s still acceptable. I casually mentioned to the Seal that I’d owe him a favor, so he gave me this honor.”
Fang Linyan whistled,
“That’s so cool.”
Lipper suddenly added,
“Wrench, you should find an opportunity to join a team as soon as possible. There are also teams within the mercenary groups. Collective strength is stronger than going solo.”
Fang Linyan sighed,
“But I think it depends on what kind of team it is. You can’t just make do with anyone. Being alone is better than being in a team that can barely keep themselves together.”
Lipper doesn’t say anything back, since he was not a person who liked to argue. But the words he wanted to say were written all over his face —”You’re wrong.”
At this time, Team Seal sent a member over. He even did a military salute before saying,
“Hello everyone, I’m Ai Lu, Team Seal’s secretary. Because we might need to your help later, I came over to explain the situation to you.”
After the rest of the people nodded and agreed, Ai Lu continued,
“Before entering the world, we almost guessed that there will be a quest related to Jack the Ripper, so we investigated in advance and collected some relevant information. Although it might not be the same as the Jack the Ripper from our world, we also managed to find some key information.”
To be honest, Fang Linyan wanted to hear about the crucial information they had collected, but Ai Lu directly avoided the topic and said,
“In response to the doubts we had, we sent 3 people upon entering the world to follow Jack the Ripper’s trace and managed to find some interesting facts.”
“First of all, the secret of Jack the Ripper’s disappearance after the murders is that he can quickly travel through the London sewers.”
“Secondly, Jack the Ripper… probably, no, we are 100% sure there’s more than one of them. Because our people managed to find 2 actual clues about Jack the Ripper last night.”
“The first crime was at 10:17 pm at Natos Alley next to Lannett Street.”
“The second crime was at 10:19 pm in Winters Lane, Whitechapel.”
“The distance between these 2 places is 7km! Jack the Ripper can’t cross a distance of 7km to commit crimes in 2 places in a short period.”
At this time, a person next to him suddenly raised his hand. He seemed to be more familiar with Ai Lu, so he said casually,
“If there is more than one Jack the Ripper, then how come the information given by the police didn’t explain this?”
Ai Lu replied,
“Wendi, we have also discussed. We believe that it was very likely that Jack the Ripper shoved some of the bodies into the sewers or the Thames after the murders. With the level efficiency of Scottland Yard’s case-solving now, they most probably cannot be bothered with these things.”
Wendi nodded and made a gesture for Ai Lu to continue.
Ai Lu continued,
“We followed the clues and found a very important clue. This would be that wherever Jack the Ripper appeared, there must be some other people present. The similarities between these people are that they are all affiliated to an organization called the Death Eaters.”
“This organization is an illegal organization banned by the Ministry of Magic in this world. They study black magic and are addicted to those forbidden powers.”
“Although no evidence has been obtained at this time, there are signs that they are now trying to explore the Obscurus, which is a taboo and very powerful spell.”
“Once their research is successful, the entirety of the magic governing system will be overturned.”
Having said that, Ai Lu pointed to the house behind him and said seriously,
“According to the information we got, a dark wizard will leave the hidden lair tonight and come to this house in the world of ordinary people.”
“Within 1km of this house, there are 6 bars and 3 dance halls. Those dancers and prostitutes walking on the streets late at night are Jack the Ripper’s targets.”
“So, we have a good chance tonight to discover the true secret of Jack the Ripper! The dark wizard has been repeatedly raided by the Ministry of Magic, which is equivalent to being insoluble in mainstream society. They can still survive as tenaciously as roaches, so their escaping skills are top-notch. “
“Of course, our team will try to intercept him as much as possible, but if he still escapes, we will need help from you guys. I promise here that as long as you make an interception that stops the dark wizard. We will increase your share once we receive the rewards. ”
Speaking of this, Ai Lu also took a special look at Lipper,
“Vulture, don’t worry. Just do what you can. We have used the magic cores that you paid to us before, but we will compensate you according to the market value.”
Lipper said expressionlessly,
Fang Linyan forced himself not to look at Lipper in the eyes, doing his best to try and control his facial muscles.
He felt that his expression now should be similar to the policeman played by Wen Moumou in the movie “The Mermaid”… In other words, he only realized now how painful it was, to force himself to act normal and not laugh out loud!
The 4 of them waited for about 10 minutes.
Suddenly, there was an explosion from the house, the fire was soaring into the sky, and the impact was amazing!
Immediately afterward, he saw 2 mysterious figures fleeing from the house. They were wearing dark wizard robes with their faces covered. They were dusted by the previous explosion. 1 of them struggled to stand up, and the other was shaking and needed to the support of the other. It was obvious that the explosion did a great deal of damage to them.
Less than 2 seconds after they appeared, there was another voice roaring,
Then there was a series of explosions that followed, then the window on the side was broken apart. Another black figure escaped from it. This figure seemed to come straight toward Fang Linyan and the others.
His movements were very mysterious. It seemed like a snake slithering in water, which was difficult to predict its trajectory. The bullets fired at him all missed as if they were trying to shoot a phantom.
Without the command of Team Seal, they all launched attacks. Vulture pulled out a gurkha saber and charged forward immediately while the other 2 seemed to be inclined to melee combat. After spreading out to both sides, they seemed to block the black figure’s path with this simple position.
Fang Linyan released his [Drone], but then he realized that despite being cornered by 3 good opponents, the black figure wearing a large cloak seemed to be at ease.
First, he stretched out his hand to hold the saber that the vulture slashed head-on,
He backed off for 3 meters like a feather by borrowing the force of Lipper’s strike, and he dodged the punch of the other contractor too.
Lastly, the black figure’s body twisted like a fried dough twist, avoiding Wendi’s vicious stab.
