The facial hair on his face looked boorish, but the soft and fine medium-length curly hair made him look delicate… The man was thirty-five years old.
A dangerous aura exuded from him. The senate president frowned. He didn’t like dealing with people with such a heavy murderous vibe. Such people often did things without common sense. All the rules in the world were unable to regulate his actions.
“Oh? Are you their leader?” The senate president remained calm, and his gaze quickly glanced at the concert hall below.
The exits of the concert hall were under control. Fake police officers wearing UPP uniforms wielding deadly weapons were facing the panicked crowd. The orchestra members and performers walked off the stage while holding their heads down one after another—under the threat of several thugs armed with guns.
The situation was unexpectedly serious.
“My name is Roger.” The man smiled slightly and then walked a few steps closer.
The VIP booth provided beverage service. Roger seemed interested in the wine on the table, but the way he drank was as rough as the beard stubble on his face. He burped at the mouth of the bottle, touched his lips, and then continued, “I have two conditions. First, send all UPP troops in Rio’s slums out, and release a few people from prison.”
The senate president didn’t respond, thinking about the intentions of the opposition side quickly.
But Roger didn’t let the senate president have more room to consider, “Every 10 minutes the first condition isn’t fulfilled, I will kill 1 person down there. Every 10 minutes the second condition isn’t fulfilled, I will also kill 1 person down there.”
“What!?” The old senator president was caught off guard. This was the reason why he hated dealing with such lunatics the most.
The senate president couldn’t help but frown, “Your first request isn’t something that I can agree to right away! You need to know that the withdrawal of the UPP forces requires congress’s consent. As for the second condition, who do you want us to release?”
Roger took another sip of wine at this time and walked to the viewing platform. He looked down at the herd of hostages, “These people seem to have a blissful life. I want to see how it looks like when these people become unfortunate. Then, let’s see who’s having the worst luck tonight?”
With that, Roger turned his head to look at the senate president with a smirk. He didn’t even look down and just pulled out his pistol. With that, he fired a random shot.
The gunshot was like thunder in the concert hall. Everyone below screamed in panic.
The senate president turned pale immediately. This guy is simply a lunatic. Does he shoot without even looking?
“It seems that these survivors are all lucky.” Roger took a glance and said, “It’s a pity that I didn’t shoot anyone. However, I won’t randomly shoot like this next time. Senate president, can’t you just agree to my conditions now?”
“I can agree to your request and release the person you want.” The senator president gritted his teeth, “This is my sincerity! But the first request isn’t something I can decide alone! You have successfully threatened me. No amount of cruelty is needed anymore. Please let us find a peaceful path.”
Roger shrugged, “I want to see these people appear in front of me within an hour.”
Roger said one name after another… In the eyes of the senate president, they were all heinous criminals. They were the gang leaders who the UPP units arrested violently a few years ago!
“At the same time, I will give you an hour to convince everyone in the senate.” Roger tapped on the pistol’s handle. “My gunshot is quite accurate if it isn’t a blind shot.”
No matter what, I have at least bargained for an hour.
The senate president hurriedly took out his phone. The withdrawal of the UPP troops wasn’t a joke. It was equivalent to returning the city control to those lawless guys again. In a sense, it was a message that the government bowed its head to these thugs!
However, the hostages here…
“By the way, there have been a lot of homicides during this period. It’s your work, right?” The senate president frowned and asked.
He didn’t intend to get an answer. He just wanted to exchange more words with this guy in the hope of getting more information… information as chips for negotiation!
“Does the incompetent government intend to put the charges on our heads if it fails to catch the murderer?” Roger sneered, “It doesn’t matter. We don’t care about being charged with additional crimes. Also, Mr. Senator, you have 54 minutes left.”
Anyway, the hostages they had taken in this kind of international exchange activities were all international friends. This would inevitably cause problems in the country’s diplomacy. This crime alone was heavy enough. In Roger’s view, being in charge for a few lives didn’t matter.
But, who assassinated those guys? The gang boss? The senate members? Their death had no connection to Roger.
“Got it!” The old senate president glanced bitterly at Roger. If it isn’t from Roger’s side, who is behind these murder cases?
Before the phone got through, the senate president was startled. He saw that Roger slowly breathed into the pistol’s barrel with a playful expression on his face.
Naturally, another gunshot just now came from Roger—This guy shot at the crowd again!
“Mr. Roger! You said you will give me an hour!” The senator president was indignant and glared.
“But I can’t sit idle boringly in the one-hour wait, right?” Roger narrowed his eyes. His gun pointed down again and kept moving as if looking for a target.
This person takes pleasure in killing.
Seeing this, the senate president dared not to hesitate anymore. As soon as the call was connected, he shouted, “I’m Teverman! Let the president answer the call! Immediately!!!”
Black as ink, there was no possibility of it mixed with any color.
Boss Luo fixed his gaze in the direction of the VIP room on the next level and whispered to himself, “Although this color can appear in theory, this is the first time I see it… the color of pure evil. In terms of quality, it’s surprisingly high.”
All the kindness and beauty were like a glaze. They were extremely precious. However, when there was light, there would be darkness – the reflection of utmost violence. Of course, this was difficult to find.
The intricate contrast seemed wondrous.
