The raised wine glass gently collided together, making a crisp clink. The room was filled with the wine’s fragrance. O’Neill lit a cigar casually, sat down, and smoked the cigar comfortably, “Haha, we got rid of Prewitt in the end.”
Lluvia said, “It’s not over yet. It only ends when we get back safely. So don’t overindulge yourself.”
O’Neill was unconcerned. “It all started from taking down Neymar at the beginning to our final target Prewitt. The assassinations will surely put the police in a tough spot, trying to figure out the connection. But in fact, these murders only have one connection—it’s all our work. Those incompetent policemen wouldn’t figure out that the victims we killed were commissioned by different customers. It’s just that our military advisor decided to complete the bounties in one go. “
Lluvia subconsciously looked at the figure’s back standing in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows—Song Haoran. He was admiring the view on the City of God. Before departing from their safehouse, the military advisor said, “After accumulating so many deals, I waited until these people were all in the same place and completed the bounties all at once. Only by arranging the time reasonably can I have enough vacation time to splurge.”
Lluvia put down the wine glass and said, “However, Prewitt’s influence is too great. He is typically careful in his daily life. Lucky that everyone relaxed a little after the hostage takeover. Otherwise, it won’t be easy for us to complete our mission.”
O’Neill said disdainfully, “Before the theater hijacking, I had my eyes on the old man. It’s not easy to catch him in a scene with so many people around. That guy should have been shot to death early on.”
Lluvia shook her head, unwilling to say anything to the arrogant fellow O’Neill, “Military advisor, the major stations should be put under strict verification tomorrow morning. Let’s buy the closely available train ticket and leave?”
Iris typically evacuates immediately after the missions are completed and will never stay any longer.
However, Song Haoran suddenly said at this moment, “I’m not heading back yet.”
“Military advisor?” Song Haoran turned around and smiled slightly, “Let me indulge for another meal before leaving.”
Lluvia was stunned, “Military advisor, are you meeting up with the young Chinese you saw in the theater?”
Song Haoran said nonchalantly, “Don’t you think that person looks like father when he is still young? Especially for the eyebrows and nose?”
He took out the note with the address written on it from his clothes, squinted his eyes in deep thought, and blurted, “It’s just for lunch.”
“The place is a bit small, but there should be no problem staying for one night. But, it’s hot and stuffy.”
It wasn’t only small. There was even a strange smell. For Livia, who had no clue how to do housework, it was incredible she could clean up to such an extent.
Caroline shook her head helplessly, “It doesn’t matter. I’m just staying for one night.”
I shouldn’t have agreed to Livia’s proposal. Maybe it would be a better choice to find a hotel outside to stay. It really shouldn’t try to save that money.
Obviously, I have a huge sum of money on hand, but I dare not use it indiscriminately for the time being.
Perhaps, the saving habit has been engraved deeply into my bones? Caroline couldn’t help but laugh at herself. She then asked Livia, “How did you tell your man? Is he Anu? Ahnu?”
“Arnold!” Livia rolled her eyes at Caroline and said quietly, “I mentioned that you are my colleague. You have something to be done early in the morning tomorrow, so you just come over to stay for one night. He didn’t say anything else, don’t worry. However, he doesn’t know about our work, so don’t spill it!”
Caroline shook her head and said, “Are you an idiot who believes in love?”
Livia said quietly, “Caroline, how many opportunities like this can someone like us have? For the future, let’s take it one step at a time.”
Livia was the more carefree type.
“I’m a little sleepy. Go and accompany your Arnold.” Caroline sighed, hurriedly pushed Livia out of this small utility room, and reminded, “I’m drained for the night. When you do your thing, please be gentle.”
“Don’t worry about that~”
When the utility room door was closed, it immediately became a narrow space with only a single-sided window. The summer heat made Caroline sweat profusely.
It was an old house with terrible soundproofing. Caroline could even hear Livia and her boyfriend Arnold talking in the next room.
She sighed. The sleeping conditions were quite poor, which reminded Caroline of her childhood in the repair shop where her adoptive father lived.
Soon after, Caroline began to hear Livia’s familiar and suppressed moaning. But, isn’t their sound too loud?
Perhaps Caroline was exhausted. She managed to fall asleep.
In the middle of the night, Caroline woke up. But at this time, she could no longer hear the voices of Livia and her boyfriend, Arnold. Most probably, they have done their deeds and gone to sleep?
Caroline opened the door, tiptoed. She planned to take a cold shower. Maybe the leather sofa in the living room would be more comfortable—at least, the living room wouldn’t be so hot and stuff.
I shall leave at daybreak. I will text Livia after I leave. After taking a shower, Caroline sat on the sofa by herself, turned on the fan, and laid down more comfortably.
Before she realized it, she fell asleep.
There were dizzying lights, stimulating stereos, and a crazy crowd. Captain Cage looked at this place dumbly.
He knew this place was a bar, but he didn’t expect the place Bucky brought him over would be a bar.
Shouldn’t we be looking for a remote place to hide? But soon, Cage felt that Bucky came here for another purpose rather than heading to the place arranged by Warden Mark.
“I see, Boss Bucky. There are so many people here. Those guys wouldn’t have thought that you’re so high-profile and dare to come here for the night!” Cage looked at Bucky in admiration! He deserves to be the legendary boss. What an act of overwhelming courage…
Bucky glanced at Cage indifferently. Should I tell this idiot that this place is one of my properties but in disguise of another identity?
But Cage’s driving skill was remarkable. He could shake off the tailing police car while driving such a heavy prison car. Of course, the prison car was abandoned in another place a long time ago.
Later, Cage bought two sets of clothes from a clothing store. After the two changed their outfits, they came directly to this place.
Strictly speaking, this bar had its own boss. Bucky was just a funder. As for all the profits of the bar, Bucky hadn’t taken a penny over the years.
“The Flaming Lips!” Cage patted his head at this time, “I remember it, the Flaming Lips! Isn’t this a famous spot on Ninth Street? It is rumored that the owner of the Flaming Lips Bar is a beauty. It’s a pity that it’s a thorny rose. I’ve never heard of anyone who can take her down. According to the gossip, a famous star bought three cars of red roses and sent them to the door here to have a meal with this beautiful boss. Sadly, he is rejected too.”
“Cage, you stay here. If I don’t come over, you don’t have to come out.” Bucky took Cage directly into a booth.
After that, Bucky walked directly into the restricted area of the bar. Generally speaking, this should be the office area, which was the bar’s basement.
He passed by a long corridor and then walked to a door.
In front of this door stood two brawny men with wrestling masks. The two beefy men wearing only leather pants were like iron pagodas. When Bucky arrived, his eyes shifted from the two intimidating figures.
