“Huh…O’Neill, the target appears!” Lluvia alerted.
Lluvia, who was teasing O’Neill at a separate spot, observed carefully through binoculars. As soon as the message was sent, the dandy expression on O’Neill’s face disappeared instantly. There was a glimmer of light in his eyes. He adjusted the sniper in his hand.
“Hey! Let’s get this gone smoothly. ⅓ of the mission is completed! BOOM!“
The waiter panicked and cleaned up the cups that were accidentally dropped on the ground. The customers should have ordered a drink such as a tomato juice. Instead, the red liquid spread on the floor.
On the table by the window, Luo Qiu withdrew his gaze from the waiter. Song Haoran smiled at this time and said, “What were we talking about just now.”
Luo Qiu reminded, “Brother Song is talking about your adventure in the Amazon jungle to find a ruin.”
Compared to an ordinary college student like Luo Qiu, Song Haoran’s life seemed quite exciting. He was telling stories about his adventures when he was young.
“Yes, Amazon.” Song Haoran recalled at this time, “It’s a pity that I didn’t meet the Amazon warriors who are all beautiful women. Otherwise, some wonderful stories should happen!”
Boss Luo said curiously, “The Amazon female warrior should be a made-up mythical story.”
Song Haoran said, “Who knows? Maybe someone actually found them. Even mythology has its original prototype. If they are imagined out of thin air, don’t you think that many mythological systems are too elaborate?”
“What happened then?” Luo Qiu continued the topic.
“Let me think about it…” Song Haoran continued to recall, “Of course, I couldn’t find any female Amazon warrior, but I encountered a giant python. In Chinese mythology, you will probably say that this python has evolved into a demon beast. Luo Qiu, can you imagine that the python is more than three meters thick, thirty to forty meters long, with a strange black horn on its head. It seems to be invincible to modern weapons. That scary fellow has swallowed up a few of the members in the expedition!”
Did I actually evolve into a demon beast? Boss Luo glanced at the maid, seemingly sending this message in his eyes.
The maid also looked at his master at the first moment and conveyed the same message: It had indeed become a demon beast.
Song Haoran seemed to have lingering fears, “Faced with that kind of horrible creature, the weapons we had on hand could not cause any harm to it. Finally, we had to escape from that place. Later we learned that it was hidden in the jungle. The relics are non-existent.”
“That’s a pity.” Boss Luo followed with a sigh.
Song Haoran looked at the two curiously and asked, “Do you believe it?”
Luo Qiu smiled and said, “Brother Song, are you talking about the ancient civilization’s relics, or is it about the giant python?”
Song Haoran was taken aback. Of course, what he meant was that giant python—after all, such a huge and utterly alien creature had indeed deviated from the norm.
But he did not expect that this young man named Luo Qiu would separate his story into two aspects. Perhaps, he already believed everything in his story from the beginning?
“Hahaha, I like your guts.” Song Haoran laughed happily. “I told a few people about this story later, but obviously, they all just treated it as a beautiful lie to attract the attention of beautiful women at prom.”
“I’m more interested in strange things.” Luo Qiu gave an explanation. “My major is paleontology.”
The waiter started to serve the aperitif wine at this time. Song Haoran declined the waiter’s offer and unplugged the wine himself, “Do you drink?”
“Then try this. It’s made from sugarcane. It’s sweet.” Song Haoran then looked at You Ye, “I think the ladies like it.”
At this moment, a loud noise suddenly came from outside the restaurant!
A black car suddenly lost control. It rushed directly into the shop next to it. The loud noise was the sound that this black car made when it hit the shop’s door!
The front of the car caved in, and the people around were watching in horror… Then, there came a woman’s scream!
At this time, a man who appeared like the driver in front of the car opened the door. His forehead should have suffered a hit with blood oozing out from it. He climbed out of the front seat with difficulty and then quickly opened the back door.
The driver looked panicked at this time. He quickly moved a rich middle-aged man out from the back seat. The driver shouted loudly in horror… This rich middle-aged man who the driver carried out was motionless.
If the onlookers get close enough, they would find a bleeding hole in the temple of this rich middle-aged man!
Obviously, this rich middle-aged man was shot and assassinated!
Chaos spread among the crowd, and screams were everywhere. The customers in the restaurant had obviously noticed this scene. Many customers ran to the window and watched. Some even walked out of the restaurant directly.
“It seems to be fatal.” Song Haoran said suddenly, “This situation is quite common here. But for you, it may be a little uncomfortable. But after getting used to it, you won’t feel just fine. Besides…”
Luo Qiu looked at Song Haoran.
Song Haoran did not look outside at this time, still pouring the sweet aperitif wine in his hand into the glass calmly. His grip was still firm.
It wasn’t until the three glasses were half-filled that Song Haoran picked up the glass in front of him and then lightly clinked the glasses for Luo Qiu and You Ye.
He smiled and looked at the duo and said softly, “Welcome to the City of God.”
