“I volunteer to be the policeman for our people.”
“I promise to be loyal to the motherland, to the people, and the law; to obey law and orders; to strictly observe discipline and keep secrets; to enforce the law impartially; to be honest and clean; to perform duties without fear of sacrifice; to serve the people wholeheartedly.”
“I am willing to dedicate myself to public security and work hard to realize my oath!”
After a while, Wang Yuechuan withdrew his gaze from the window. He then set his gaze on the man who claimed to be 18.
18 said calmly, “It seems you already have the answer, right?”
Wang Yuechuan said, “I believe that no matter what kind of mission, it must be voluntary even if it is a mission that requires the sacrifice of life. I don’t care what the mission is, but before that, I’m a police officer who has already taken an oath. I also believe that my country will not harm innocent people because of a mission.”
18 showed a wicked smile and raised his brows, “So, your answer is a no?”
Wang Yuechuan glanced at the man indifferently and walked towards the door without saying a word. He was loyal to the police organization and would do his best to achieve any difficult missions issued by the organization.
But, he was not a machine that only knew how to complete missions.
“My existence is confidential. No information leak is allowed.” 18 turned around and looked at the back of Wang Yuechuan, who was about to leave, “Do you know what it means for you to leave like this?”
Wang Yuechuan sneered without stopping his footsteps, “Of course it means that I don’t have to work with a neurotic, nothing more than that.”
Just as he finished speaking, Wang Yuechuan felt like he was at death’s door. He had been cultivating “Book of the Dead” for a short period, and his perception was getting stronger. 18 assaulted all of a sudden.
Wang Yuechuan dodged swiftly. Behind him, 18 threw a fatal kick along with suffocating wind pressure. With this kick alone, Wang Yuechuan could conclude that 18 was a proficient fighter.
Wang Yuechuan didn’t dare to be careless, so he stepped back and observed 18’s movements again. He was not too frightened because of his confidence in his close-quarter combat. On the other hand, he also possessed the mysterious power of “Book of the Dead.” But, he naturally won’t rely on it. He didn’t want to expose the power of “Book of the Dead” unless necessary.
“The person who recommended you said that you are the best among the elites. I don’t think so.” 18 sneered, “You’re mediocre.”
Wang Yuechuan snorted coldly with his muscles tensed. He burst out the aura like a leopard. He threw an uppercut on 18’s chest directly. Among the teams he had serviced, he had never been afraid of any duels in the ring.
However, 18’s combat prowess far exceeded Wang Yuechuan’s imagination. He thought that this would render 18 retreat or fail to react in time, but unexpectedly 18 blocked the all-out uppercut.
18’s fist held Wang Yuechuan’s fist. 18 didn’t even take a step back and held firm footings. Wang Yuechuan felt the strength of 18’s grasp on his fist. He couldn’t help but get shocked!
There was terrible pain coming from Wang Yuechuan’s fist as if a hydraulic press was pressing it. In just an instant, this pain caused Wang Yuechuan to drench in a cold sweat, and his lips turned pale.
Wang Yuechuan took a deep breath, twisted his arm, and broke free from the grasp. Following the inertia, his body continued to rotate. He slammed his elbow on 18’s face with the momentum’s aid!
Unhurriedly, 18 took a short step back. He reached out his hand and pressed it on Wang Yuechuan’s waist with a little force.
Before Wang Yuechuan’s elbow hit, he was pushed to the ground.
Wang Yuechuan got up from the ground quite embarrassedly. His eyes locked into every part of 18’s body. He knew that he might have encountered a terrifying opponent since the beginning of his career. 18 had excellent combat prowess. Having a number as a nickname made 18 special. Wang Yuechuan felt 18’s identity more and more mysterious.
“You can’t defeat me.” 18 smiled slightly at this time, “Hence, you won’t get out of this room.”
18 took some time to tidy up his messy sleeves because of the excessive movements. He looked at Wang Yuechuan and said, “To be honest, I like your answer just now. However, if you don’t meet the requirements, you don’t meet the requirements.”
18’s eyes appeared merciless to Wang Yuechuan. There was murderous intent.
Wang Yuechuan had caught a lot of murderers and saw the murderous intent of these criminals. Once there was an intent to kill, the eyes wouldn’t deceive it.
“Whether I can make it out or not, it’s still waiting to be verified.” Wang Yuechuan sighed while his eyes narrowed slightly.
A whirling pattern appeared in Wang Yuechan’s eyes. 18 was in the whirling nest at this moment. His gaze suddenly became sluggish with a moment of absent-mindedness!
At this moment of distraction, a considerable force slammed into 18’s abdominal cavity. 18 found it unbelievable. After Wang Yuechuan hit 18’s abdominal cavity with a heavy blow, he didn’t stop there. He lunged instantly with his arm bent. With that, he performed a hand chop on 18’s neck!
At this moment, 18 raised his hand at the last moment. Wang Yuechuan concentrated all his strength on it.
18 blocked it, but he still stepped a few steps back before stabilizing his foothold.
Wang Yuechuan did not dare to pursue further. He had already used the ability of “Book of the Dead” to stun 18 for a brief moment. But, he did not expect 18’s will to be so strong. It was just a brief moment of distraction before 18 regained his senses.
What a formidable guy!
“Nice, you surprised me.” 18 exhaled slowly at this time.
Wang Yuechuan sneered and said, “Really? Are you trying to say that you’re just getting serious now?”
18 shook his head and waved his hand at the same time. Under Wang Yuechuan’s puzzled gaze, he sat back and said, “Why should I fight you? I don’t want to suffer under your special ability again. I don’t think I will be lucky enough to regain my sense next time.”
“Really? What special ability?” Wang Yuechuan said with a calm expression, “I’ve been physically stronger since I was young.”
18 unplugged the stopper of the wine bottle and started pouring red wine, “This world is huge. It’s not a secret for some people to master abilities that ordinary people don’t know. It’s fine. I’m not interested in digging into your secrets. Come over and enjoy yourself with a glass of wine. We can talk about what to do next.”
“What do you mean?” Wang Yuechuan frowned, but he didn’t understand. He felt as if he had fallen into the giant net woven by 18 since he walked into this room.
18 was like a vast spider hiding in the dark, and he had become the insect stuck in the web.
“What do I mean?” 18 raised his glass at this time and said with respect to Wang Yuechuan, “Of course, you are qualified.”
“How about your question just now?” Wang Yuechuan did not relax his vigilance.
18 smiled slightly and said, “If you were to kill the traffic policeman downstairs without hesitation just now, you would not only lose the qualification for this mission, I would even let you lose your job. We don’t need a killing machine that is unscrupulous to complete the mission. Wang Yuechuan, you did good!”
Sure enough, is everything just a test?
18 took a look at Wang Yuechuan and said suddenly, “I know you must have many puzzles in your heart. Even the things that happened between us previously are a little uncomfortable, but…”
18 suddenly stood upright, raising his arms in salute. At this moment, Wang Yuechuan could not see any trace of leisure in the 18’s face, only seriousness. Wang Yuechuan was overwhelmed by a sense of duty.
