O’Neill nodded, walking slightly unnaturally, and then detained Bucky’s hands.
Song Haoran was checking the equipment stripped from Batu. Then, he took out the opponent’s walkie-talkie, pondering about something. Lluvia approached Song Haoran quietly, lowered her voice, and asked, “Do you believe what he said? Should we verify it?”
If Bucky were here to aid the government, he would have at least one surveillance device hidden in his body. If it couldn’t be found, the lie would be self-defeating.
“Don’t you think it’s interesting?” Song Haoran narrowed his eyes.
Lluvia stunned, ” interesting?”
Song Haoran said calmly, “Roger’s true intentions.”
Lluvia frowned and said, “However, there are a lot of explosives hidden here. After all, it is too dangerous. I promised the Father to protect your safety.”
Song Haoran commented, “Do you think Roger dared to press the detonator? Although he is a madman, he must not be so crazy that he can kill his life along with the enemy. If he still has a goal, he will cherish his life more. Therefore, before he leaves the theater safely, we are safe.”
As he said, he took another glance at Luo Qiu, who was on the side, and whispered into Lluvia’s ear, “Now all the people outside are the government’s forces. They have already surrounded this place from the outside. Although we can leave now, we are bound to be found by the police once we walk out of the theater. The three of them should be fine, but as for the three of us…”
Lluvia nodded solemnly.
Their identities were all forged. They couldn’t survive through the police’s inspection and verification. Moreover, many hostages in the concert hall were still being taken, and their group walked out safely. If the police officers in Rio had sound minds, they would be thoroughly investigated.
“We can only wait for the police to rescue, and then we mix in with the hostages and leave,” said Lluvia resignedly.
If they left before the deployment of the police arrived, they wouldn’t need to worry too much. But, they had already missed the best timing.
Lluvia glanced at Song Haoran. The military advisor communicating with the Father could have left directly before the incident, but he still stayed.
Lluvia subconsciously held Song Haoran’s hand, “These three people you bring a long are extra baggage, don’t you think we should… After all, they have seen our faces.”
Song Haoran shook his head, “They don’t know who we are; they just think we are the people sent by the government to rescue. Although we can’t leave, it should be safe for them to leave. I will find an opportunity and send them out.”
“Military advisor…” Lluvia seemed to want to say something.
Song Haoran interrupted, “Father taught that having one more friend is the same as making one less enemy. Whether it is Franky or Luo Qiu, their identities aren’t simple. They may become useful in the future. Life is like a huge river, and we are the fish inside. We will always meet each other.”
Lluvia said no more.
They moved Batu and Bucky, who were unconscious, to a pantry in the corridor. There was a lot of food here. It was initially provided for guests in VIP rooms, but it had become useful for everyone to replenish their physical strength at this moment.
Amid fear and tension, it was easy to lose physical strength and consume body calories. Song Haoran suggested that the group temporarily rest here for ten minutes.
Dr. Franky took out his cell phone at this time and waved it around, but he still couldn’t receive the signal.
Song Haoran said, “It’s useless. The thugs should have instruments that release special interference waves. Otherwise, there are so many people in the concert hall holding mobile phones. The police won’t be blind to the situation here. The signal that isn’t permitted wouldn’t be able to reach the outside world.”
Dr. Franky shook his head, grabbed a bottle of champagne sullenly, walked to the corner, and squatted down. He drank alone, perhaps to gain courage.
“Are you alright?”
Song Haorans glanced at Luo Qiu and You Ye sitting quietly in a corner. He approached Luo Qiu and asked.
“I’m fine.” Boss Luo responded briefly.
He should now be the role of a wealthy young son. It seemed that he should not be too calm. So Boss Luo then asked with concern, “Mr. Song, can we go out safely?”
Song Haoran smiled and said, “We will go to the second floor later. There are windows in the restrooms there. I checked them before. There is a pipe next to the windows. There should be no problem climbing down. There are the police outside. As long as the thugs aren’t agitated and there is no gunfight, you should be safe.”
“That’s good.” Luo Qiu nodded.
Song Haoran opened a packet of biscuits and sent them to Luo Qiu. He winked, “Don’t let your lovely partner get hungry. That isn’t gentleman-like.”
Luo Qiu smiled slightly. Song Haoran seemed to give off a sense of safety. He has excellent humor while staying confident and focused on the main goal as if he is confident that he can do everything.
Those with confidence in the heart become strong with self-trust.
“Have you ever tried a pistol?” Song Haoran took a pistol out at this time and quickly unlocked the gun’s safety lock in front of Luo Qiu.
“I have tried them in the shooting club.” Luo Qiu thought for a while and said truthfully, “But they are all domestic products.”
“They are almost the same.” Song Haoran held the pistol in front of Luo Qiu, and there were two bullet clips. “The real gun is a bit heavier. When pointing at the enemy, it’s best to raise your wrist slightly to shoot like this. With that, you tend not to shoot below the target.”
Song Haoran grabbed Luo Qiu’s wrist and asked Luo Qiu to hold the pistol. He then pointed the gun at himself, fine-tuning his posture, “Yes, just like this. Great, your hands aren’t too shaky. You have some talent in this.”
Luo Qiu suddenly asked, “Are you sure to let me hold it?”
“If we encounter an enemy and engage in a gunfight, I may not be able to take care of you.”
Song Haoran waved his hand and said, “The person who can protect ourselves best is ourselves. Please don’t have any psychological burden. They are murderers with blood on their hands. If you kill one, hell might even give you credit.”
Boss Luo ‘relaxed’ a little, smiled, and said, “I feel like you are cursing me to die.”
Song Haoran laughed loudly and said, “Sorry, I’m talking about the future. My old man believes in this kind of thing. He has listened to this kind of thing a lot since he was young. Don’t be surprised.”
“Father?” Luo Qiu raised his head slightly.
Song Haoran didn’t seem to want to say more but just brushed it through, “He is a hospitable person. But he hasn’t left the house for a long time. He has recently retired at home.”
Boss Luo didn’t continue to dig further to make things seem more natural.
At this moment, a man’s voice suddenly sounded in the pantry. Dr. Franky almost jumped up in shock. It turned out that the communicator that Batu was carrying with him sounded.
Batu led Bucky to the toilet and had not returned to the team for a long time. That aroused the thugs’ suspicion.
“Batu, Batu? Can you hear me? Reply! We found the missing people in the fourth-floor corridor. They are big fish! A political party leader, Billy! Where are you? Flank immediately! Reply!”
The intercom kept ringing.
“It’s Mr. Billy!” Dr. Franky stood up nervously and looked at Song Haoran at the same time.
