Company ‘Lominster Leighton’ was one of the world’s top ten military industry companies, the behemoth in its industry.
As a company that undertook military satellite launches and other similar services from the world’s greatest country, it was conceivable how robust its background was. The leader of its country most probably had to treat the company’s boss in great respect.
As a matter of fact, many plutocrats affected this most remarkable country. Naturally, the ‘Lominster Leighton’ company was one of them. The man who came to Rio this time was a rich man behind the ‘Lominster Leighton’ company and the talent of the Leighton family.
As for this young talent, he followed the Columbian Language Exchange Group to this place. Interestingly, the Leighton family put this young talent in the guise of a member of the language exchange group.
“A private Satellite Launch & Rocket Technology Development Agreement?”
After listening to You Ye’s narration, Boss Luo began to ponder. For some reason, the performance at the stage paused at this time.
In fact, it was also because the performance was suspended that You Ye would take the time to report the information she acquired to her master.
“As the World’s No. 1 Hegemony Country, will it plan to develop this technology together with a country whose technology is far behind?” Luo Qiu shook his head. “Isn’t it more accurate to call it a technology sale?”
The maid smiled slightly, “The person who will be discussing this matter privately with the Leighton family seems to be an important member of the opposition party in this country.”
Boss Luo nodded. He raised his eyebrows and said, “I heard that the current president of this country was impeached for corruption not long ago, but he has survived.”
“Even so, his remaining tenure is almost over.” You Ye nodded, “Then, people in the opposition want to get this technology to increase their bargaining chips before the next general election. It’s just that the technology should be quite old.”
“Even for an outdated technology, it’s on demand for countries that don’t have it.” Luo Qiu said calmly, “In the technology aspect, the only thing important is to stay ahead. After all, technological progress can’t be suppressed. Rather than letting it go to waste, it’s better to get more value out of it. That’s the correct way of how a capitalist does things. But, since it involves something that alters a nation’s power, such as satellites, the Leighton family probably plan this out secretly. Did they do it on their own accord without his allies noticing it?”
“That should be related to the country’s minerals mining and oil resources. The Leighton family seems interested in the country’s economic lifeline. After all, it is one of the BRIC countries with abundant resources and a superior geographic location,” the maid added.
Boss Luo nodded. At this moment, he swiped his palm randomly in front of him. Three oval panels emerged.
On each of the lit panels, the appearance of a man was reflected. They were one of the guests sitting in the hall below. As for the gazes of these three men, they would occasionally look toward this VIP room.
Luo Qiu blinked his eyes. He immediately realized the situation and whispered, “FBI? It seems that the Leighton family’s operation isn’t concealed from their eyes.”
Boss Luo glanced at the men who were sleeping in the backseat again and said in interest, “I wonder if Song Haoran’s mission is related to this matter? Well… It’s meaningless to figure out everything all at once. Let’s slowly pay attention to the next development. But…”
“En?” The maid cast a curious look.
Luo Qiu smiled, “Don’t you think fate is interesting? My father was a policeman who was committed to his job and sacrificed his life in his duty. But, his brother became the head of a mercenary abroad, committing evil deeds and killing indiscriminately.”
They were both descendants of the same bloodline but embarked on a contrasting path.
The musical performance sounded… Symphony No.9 (Great) ii
It was majestic and high-spirited.
The team called the ‘Iris’ leader – the Father; he was Song Haoran’s father. Of course, Song Haoran also called his father the same way as everyone else.
During the interlude, Song Haoran left his seat. The initially planned time for the operation had already passed. O’Neill suspended his actions. He naturally saw Lluvia’s gesture.
Song Haoran noticed there was no one else in the bathroom. So he quickly replaced the phone’s chip with another one.
“Hey, father, what’s the matter?”
On the other end of the phone, it was his old man. The Iris leader, Song Tianyou, said solemnly at the moment, “We have gotten an update on the theater hall. Someone planted a bomb in the theater.”
Song Haoran was taken aback, then his expression became solemn, “Who? How many bombs are there? What about our action this time?”
Song Tianyou seemed to know the time was pressing, so he spoke faster, “It’s not our employer. The bomb this time seems to be the work of some armed groups. This concert is mainly to improve the diplomatic relations between Brazil and neighboring countries. Consuls from several other countries are also present.”
After listening to Song Haoran, he rubbed his eyebrows, “Is it the group of lunatics who’re short of weapons and manpower? But I’m not so sure about the bomb. Though, it’s the style of those guys. We’re quite lucky to be disturbed by them.”
“According to our intelligence, the bombs installed this time are enough to blow up the entire theater. No matter what, you need to evacuate immediately.” Song Tianyou said quickly, “I will personally explain the situation to the employer. Moreover, if the explosion directly kills the target, it saves us a lot of effort.”
Song Haoran quickly added, “Father, I think we will have some difficulty in evacuation. The feast of these dangerous guys seems to have begun.”
Symphony No.9 (Great) iii
Chapter Three had already begun when Song Haoran was talking with the Father. However, amidst the loud orchestra, Song Haoran suddenly heard a scream.
In one of the rows of seats in the packed theater, a handsome man kept apologizing. In the end, he finally managed to sit next to a woman in a red evening dress, Lluvia.
Looking at the man occupying Song Haoran’s seat, Lluvia frowned and said in displeasure, “O’Neill… You should retreat and leave immediately. What are you doing here?”
The man… O’Neill smiled like a playboy at this time and said, “I noticed the military advisor walk away, so I’m afraid that you are lonely! How is it? Are my clothes alright? I just found them backstage. They should be the spare clothes for a musician.”
“Hmph, you’re just a dog wearing a human’s outfit?” Lluvia replied impatiently.
O’Neill was surprised immediately, “The military advisor said that ‘idiom’ is used to describe a gentleman. I must have looked good.”
Lluvia frowned. The meaning of this idiom was obvious by understanding the culture of that country a little bit. Obviously, O’Neill didn’t care about the culture of that land which the military advisor mentioned.
“Yeah, you’re a dog-like gentleman.” Lluvia endured the urge to laugh but soon became serious. She lowered her voice again, “Father has sent the order to terminate this operation.”
“Father!?” O’Neill blinked.
Things that the Father sorted out tended to be complicated. Just as O’Neill was about to speak, the person at the back of his seat patted his shoulder.
O’Neill glanced subconsciously. That person cast a blaming gaze and made a silent gesture as if hinting: Please be quiet in the theater.
O’Neill cast an apologetic gaze. When he was about to apologize, he suddenly saw a surprised look in this guy’s eyes. That person kept looking at the stage!
At this time, the most exciting moment of the symphony, but the orchestra stopped performing!
The theather turned quiet at this moment. All the audience was staring at the conductor of the orchestra. The conductor had fallen to the floor at this time, looking motionless.
A cellist in the orchestra hurriedly walked to the conductor’s side, wanting to assess the situation. However, when he helped the conductor up, he saw that the conductor’s white shirt was already dyed red!
Someone shot the conductor to death at the pinnacle of the symphony!
In the first row of seats, a woman in luxurious clothes screamed in panic. The screams were contagious and spread like a plague in an instant!
The horror didn’t stop with its crescendo when another terrifying event happened. A boom sounded clearly in the theater with splendid soundproof conditions.
“Ladies and gentlemen, it is an honor to inform you that you have been kidnapped!”
The sound reverberated in the theater. Somehow, the sound of acoustics hadn’t yet faded!
“It turns out that there is a third party participating in this.”
At the VIP room, Boss Luo followed the source of the sound seemingly coming from all directions. In the end, he fixed his eyes on a room directly above the stage.
There was the place to control the stage lighting and sound equipment.
There were three parties now: Song Haoran’s assassination team, those trading the technology in private, and the criminals with unknown origin.
