“You are Dr. Franky.” Song Haoran looked at the old man and asked knowingly.
Dr. Franky also looked at Song Haoran suspiciously. It wasn’t that he had never seen Asian faces, but having people with Asian faces working for the government of this country seemed baffling.
This is quite rare.
“Do you know me?” Dr. Franky frowned.
Song Haoran said casually, “Doctor, I’m from the National Security Agency. I have read the information about the important people in the country. Thus, I can recognize you.”
Song Haoran was quick-witted, and he weaved rhetoric quickly. Even though it might not be flawless, it was adequate for the current situation.
“We have been monitoring the thugs for some time and have been closely monitoring their movements.” Song Haoran quickly said, “The leader of the thug is the son of the former leader of the ‘Capital’s Military Command Center.’ He is a serious offender. They hijacked the entire theater, intending to negotiate with the state.”
“‘Capital’s Military Command Center’!” Dr. Franky exclaimed, apparently knowing the name of this thug. No one in this country was unaware of the horror of the ‘Capital’s Military Command Center.’
“How could this happen? How could this happen… It shouldn’t be. This time I…” Dr. Franky muttered to himself, his puzzled expression intensified.
“Let’s not talk about this, doctor. Besides you, is there anyone else hiding?” Song Haoran asked suddenly.
Dr. Franky said subconsciously, “Mr. Billy and I got separated in confusion, but a bodyguard accompanied him. I don’t know the situation now.”
“Mr. Billy…Which Mr. Billy?” Song Haoran asked.
Dr. Franky opened his mouth, “Of course, it is Mr. Billy from the Socialist Party. Can I leave here safely?”
Dr. Franky changed his tone immediately, looking at Song Haoran nervously. Song Haoran smiled in his heart. Although the old man’s vigilance was great, he was careless with this piece of information this time.
Socialist, Mr. Billy?
Is he the leader of a political party?
Song Haoran quickly sorted out the information.
Franky was an important talent in the field of national scientific research. Mr. Billy was most likely the leader of the socialist party, one of the opposition parties. Would the two prominent figures go together just to enjoy a musical concert on a whim?
Depending on the situation, Mr. Billy might not have a lot of manpower. After all, having a party leader appearing would attract a lot of attention.
It seemed to be a secret itinerary.
Vaguely, Song Haoran had a strange thought in his heart. Could it be that a third party in this theater gathered here for something else but unfortunately encountered Roger’s hijacking of the theater?
Also, there were assassinations over my side too…Tsk, what a great day.
“Doctor, I’ll send you to a safe place first.” Song Haoran decisively grabbed the old man’s arm.
Dr. Franky seemed to want to say something, but he held it back later on. Instead, he frowned, seemingly worried about something else.
When Song Haoran passed by a VIP room, he suddenly stopped.
Because he felt something was amiss.
Roger’s men opened all the doors to search for the remaining people in hiding. In this way, they would know there were survivors in rooms with its door closed in the second search.
After all, when people were in a panic, they would always subconsciously look for a safe place. Therefore, it was typical for them to close the door of their hiding place.
Song Haoran noticed that this door was also closed… and it was already locked.
The two thugs he had killed before should have passed by this room already. Why didn’t those two thugs notice the abnormality here? Or is it… after the two thugs passed by, someone walked into this room and closed the door?
“What’s the matter?” Dr. Franky stopped suddenly and asked in confusion.
“There is someone in here.” Song Haoran made a silent gesture. He then issued Dr. Franky hide behind him while putting his ear to the door as if listening for something.
“Are they Roger’s men?” Dr. Franky’s face paled.
Song Haoran shook his head and said instinctively, “Unlikely…Doctor, you should give me some space. It could be the survivors hiding in the room. If so, I’m obligated to take them away with you.”
Since Song Haoran was the rescuer, it was natural that he would need to save the victims upon encountering them. Dr. Franky couldn’t say anything about this. He could only nod in agreement and step back. But with this, many of his doubts regarding Song Haoran being government personnel were dispelled.
Song Haoran breathed slowly, putting his hand on the door lock. The door lock looked exquisite, but it was breachable. He exerted force on his wrist and twisted the door lock swiftly, destroying the cylinder lock in the process.
Dr. Franky exclaimed “oh” at this time, apparently optimistic about Song Haoran’s capability.
When the door lock was broken, the door could naturally be opened easily. Song Haoran was careful. He first hid by the door, gently opened the door, and waited quietly for the movement inside. After a few seconds, Song Haoran didn’t hear any activity before leaning forward into the room.
However, he only found a few men sitting on the sofa. They lowered their heads and didn’t move. They should have passed out in a coma.
At this moment, Song Haoran’s keen sense of touch made him feel something coming towards him from behind. Is he hidden behind the door the moment it opens?
What a petty trick. I had anticipated it long ago.
Song Haoran turned around abruptly and threw a revolving kick in the left direction. He had learned a lot of national fighting techniques, such as revolving kicks. That was a combination of Muay Thai and Taekwondo.
This kick would be targeting the enemy’s head. If it hits, it could easily knock the opponent out. However, Song Haoran stopped when he was about to hit the opponent.
He noticed the person hiding behind the door for ambush raised his hand at this time. His face was filled with panic, as if he was shocked by Song Haoran’s fierce attack at this time.
Behind this person was a beautiful woman in a black evening dress. Her face was ashen with her fists clenched nervously.
Song Haoran slowly lowered his legs and said in surprise, “It’s you.”
Those who hid in the room and planned to attack him were the young couple he had met earlier on the street.
It was Luo Qiu and You Ye.
“Mr. Song, it’s you.” Luo Qiu seemed to be surprised. Yet, at the same time, he was relieved with lingering fears, “I thought it was those terrorists.”
“Maybe I’m a terrorist.” Song Haoran blinked, looked at this compatriot whom he felt quite intimate with. Then, he smiled jokingly, “And it’s those kinds who murder without blinking an eye.”
Luo Qiu was taken aback and then said with a weird expression, “Then…In that case, the situation has become even worse.”
“Hahahaha! Just kidding.”
Song Haoran didn’t know why but he felt a greater sense of intimacy after seeing this young man in a sorry state. He patted the young man’s shoulder directly, “I’m not going to do anything to my friends. By the way, you guys, who do you hide here?”
Luo Qiu looked at You Ye and said quickly, “I came here with her for the musical performance. But I didn’t expect to encounter a terrorist hijack. It was so chaotic at the time, so we hid quietly.”
Song Haoran asked abruptly, “You just hid in this room and then locked the door?”
Luo Qiu was surprised, “How did you know?”
Song Haoran smiled and said, “Because I have eyes on the back of my head. Let’s not talk about this. What happened to these people? Why did they fall to the floor?”
Song Haoran pointed to a few men who had passed out on the sofa.
Song Haoran’s gaze was sharp. He noticed at first glance that only one of these people was a more pampered kind, and the rest were bodyguards. But, Dr. Franky was here at this time. He didn’t call out the name ‘Billy.’ Obviously, this guy wouldn’t be Franky’s companion.
As for whether it was Luo Qiu and You Ye who did all this?
