They were three hours late behind the agreed time with his men. Bucky still yet to show up.
For this reason, the subordinates who arrived here overnight from the remote base camp had already become impatient. However, no matter how they contacted their boss, they couldn’t get in touch with their boss.
Still, they didn’t dare to leave without authorization, but they couldn’t just wait like this. They would at least need a little clue to make sure that their boss Bucky didn’t encounter any accidents.
“I have peed for two bottles!”
“Who told you to drink so much? Can you throw away the bottle? This smell reminds me of the smell of my mother’s cattle at the farm.”
Someone carried away the two bottles with disgust and got out of a gray-white van.
At the same time, in the distance, two pairs of eyes were watching this scene. The owners of the eyes were Bucky and Cage, the prison car driver who had just become Bucky’s underling.
The twists and turns in life are often wondrous. Yesterday, Cage was a government staff member. Although this type of work might not be particularly noble and even considered a low-level work, he had somehow become an accomplice of a repeat offender on the next second.
Moreover, he accompanied the boss, spending an afternoon doing nothing, just staring at a gray-white old van.
Worse still, he even found out that the men in this car had resolved their physiological needs in the car for the past few hours… Emm, we are talking about urination.
“Boss Bucky, why do we keep observing them instead of going over? Aren’t they your men?” Cage found it puzzling that Bucky was even in the mood to read a magazine he had just bought from a street newsstand.
For some reason, Bucky’s first mission after becoming Bucky’s underling was to observe the person who came to pick them up.
“Don’t worry, keep staring at them.” Bucky languidly turned to a new page in the magazine. “If you’re too impatient, you can’t knock on the widow’s door, and there is no way for you to get the female college students you wanted. So relax and take your time.”
Cage said in curiosity, “Boss Bucky, is it because of what the beautiful lady said when we left the bar? She said about fortune-telling or something. Boss, did you believe it?”
In Cage’s view, Bucky was the car ride to a paradise filled with 50 female college students. He was determined to stick through it. However, when he was about to start the car engine, Bucky stayed idle and did nothing, which made Cage anxious.
We have been waiting for 3 hours, but there have been no accidents.
Although Cage was impatient to knock on the door of the widow’s room, the widow might have solved it by herself with her hands or strange props after waiting for 3 hours!
Cage was confident that Bucky had become so cautious because he heard what the woman named Charlotte said.
“Do I believe her nonsense? I’m an idiot to believe in her so-called fortune-telling.” Bucky shook his head, appearing disdainful, “That woman’s fortune-telling has never been accurate nine out of ten times. Let me tell you this. Anything she said with her fortune-telling would be the complete opposite of what unfolds. If her fortune-telling says good things are going to happen, things will go bad. But if the fortune-telling is the other way round, congratulations, you’re in a smooth sail.”
Cage was taken aback and even more puzzled, “Then since she said that things would be dangerous for you, wouldn’t it mean that everything will go well this time? But why are you still so careful?”
Bucky said even more disdainfully, “Because Charlotte wants to prove herself, that’s why I need to be more careful! Don’t overestimate this woman as if she is surrounded by mystery, giving her a vibe of being incredible. But In fact, she is a petty-minded idiot! I have already said that’s the normal circumstances! But this woman usually uses unorthodox methods to ensure her accuracy! I’m not afraid of police forces or those trying to take my life in the dark. I’m afraid of Charlotte!”
Cage said incredibly and authentically, “You mean, this woman will commit petty tricks behind our backs to make our situation dangerous?”
Bucky sighed, put down the new issue of “Playboy” magazine, and spoke like a thug leader with many stories, “We need to pay our due in this line of work. At the very least, let’s not die in the woman’s hand.”
Cage shook his head. He hadn’t reached that level. But, does this line align with our situation?
“Well, let’s continue to wait,” said Cage resignedly.
Bucky said suddenly, “No, you should approach them and get them to pick me up. It’s been a few hours. With Charlotte’s temperament, something would have happened a long time ago.”
“Boss, wouldn’t it be better for us to walk over?” Cage was still puzzled.
Bucky glanced at Cage indifferently and snorted coldly, “As a boss, I want my underling to pick me up. Is this the basic manner?”
Fuck, I sat for too long with one leg over another. My legs are numb.
“All right…” Cage nodded and walked directly to the van that had been parked for a long time.
But before that, Bucky put a baseball cap on Cage’s head and said calmly, “You take this to them. This is the sign that I told them before. If you just walk over, they won’t believe you.”
Cage nodded. He realized that thugs indeed had their way of doing things. He lowered his head, put his hands in his pockets, and crossed the road like this, approaching the van.
Only then did Bucky grit his teeth to move his raised leg down. Then, he massaged it quickly, hoping that the blood flow in his leg would improve when his underlings came over. Otherwise, it would be embarrassing if he couldn’t stand up.
While massaging his calf, Bucky raised the toy binocular he bought on the roadside and watched Cage approaching the van.
It seemed that the other party had noticed that someone was approaching, and the approaching person was still wearing a hat. So two people in the van quickly got off.
Cage speeded up his pace at this time as if the paradise with 50 female students was waving hands at him.
However, when Cage raised his head to look at the people getting off the van, something happened!
Several men equipped with bulletproof vests rushed out! They moved swiftly while holding pistols in their hands!
Immediately after, they pushed Cage to the front of the van from behind, hurriedly subdued Cage, and pressed him on the front of the car with a gun pointed at his head!
Almost at the same instant, a dozen men in the same outfit rushed out of the surrounding area again. They surrounded the van parked in the alley.
The assaulting men yelled. Even though it was so far away and hard to hear what these guys were saying, Bucky could guess what they were speaking with his rich experience.
“Raise your hand. Don’t move! You are already surrounded. Quickly put down your weapons and surrender.”
Bucky couldn’t bother to care about Cage right now and left these guys who rushed out suddenly. He raised the magazine in his hand without saying a word, pretending to be captivated by the magazine. Then, he left and quickly mixed into the crowd before the agents realized they had caught the wrong people.
Fuck! Charlotte is a diviner. Nine out of ten times, she will mispredict it, but why did I bump into her correct prediction this time?
It wasn’t only Bucky who felt surprised. At this moment, on the rooftop of a particular building on the same street, the two spectators were also surprised.
Charlotte was still wearing a black suspender dress and black high heels, revealing a small piece of the snow-white calf. She held a black lace-rim umbrella, muttering to herself, “I didn’t expect it.”
As for the thing beside Charlotte, it was much uglier with a crocodile head. Its body was covered with dense cyan scales. Behind it was a huge bat-like wing, composed of bone and skin. The wings were about 10 centimeters above the ground, keeping the thing floating above the ground.
It also muttered to itself, “That’s quite unexpected.”
Its whisper was soft. Even Charlotte could hardly hear it.
At this moment, the agents underneath noticed that they had caught the wrong person. A large number of their men began to scatter, frantically searching the surrounding scenes. Charlotte smiled and said with pride, “Haha, did you see that? My fortune-telling is accurate.”
