The unrest that happened overnight had been settled .
The assassin was caught and captured in the mansion's basement . The boss was free of harm and everyone let out a sigh of relief .
Hearing that assassin sneaked into the base, Cheng Weiguo, who was responsible for the security of the base, immediately lectured and cursed the soldiers patrolling on the wall . He pulled the knight emblems off of their chest and ordered them to kneel in the snow naked for an entire day as punishment .
In this type of weather, to kneel in the snow for an entire day, even with the genetic vaccine, they would lose their life .
But Jiang Chen spared them with his words .
It was not their fault .
Being able to avoid the drones equipped with the infrared sensor, the assassin must be skillful . Through his combat with Sun Xiaorou, Jiang Chen discovered that she was not to be underestimated .
Because of the existence of a powerful enemy, punishing their own just to release anger was no doubt a foolish move . Although Jiang Chen didn't understand the crafts of leading people, he still could think wearing others' shoes .
"This humiliation will be washed away by your future achievement . If you really feel guilty, then use your loyalty to repay, not your life . "
Jiang Chen said to the umiliated "naked knights" who were kneeling on the ground .
Although he spared the patrolling soldiers, the topic of base security was the conversation around the table again .
How to maximize the resource available to increase the effectiveness of patrol? Jiang Chen suggested a brutal but straightforward idea .
Bulldoze all the buildings within one hundred meter radius outside of the base to clear out the area .
They would reuse the construction materials as much as possible, if they couldn't, then they would drag one hundred meters out and pile it up .
Without buildings to take cover, it would not be as easy to infiltrate the base under the dual surveillance of drones and patrols .
This issue was finally resolved .
. . .
The bedroom wall was disfigured by the bullets and required renovation . Therefore, Jiang Chen had to choose a different room to sleep .
But Sun Jiao already made the decision for him as she dragged him into her own bedroom . She was ready to use her own body to "interrogate" him to see what exactly he did to her sister .
Of course, there was no sense of blame .
However, the fact that her man slept with her own sister made the possessive Miss Sun Jiao displeased .
The result of a displeased Sun Jiao was that Jiang Chen had to stay up tonight . . .
The only pitiful person was Yao Yao .
After she recovered from the shock, the small loli worked up the courage to suggest that if he had nowhere to stay, he could stay with Yao Yao . But sister Sun Jiao was one step ahead so Yao Yao could only pout at the closed door in disappointment .
The next morning, Jiang Chen bumped into Yao Yao, who, just like him, also had dark circles .
Feeling guity over the fact that he didn't manage to fulfill his promise, Jiang Chen suggested a compensation plan - to stay with her for the entire day .
"Am I really not heavy?" Yao Yao turned around asking worriedly .
"Not heavy, Yao Yao, you are really light . " Jiang Chen quickly shook his head .
A timid smile appeared on Yao Yao's face and she happily turned to look in the front . She dangled her feet in the air while moving her tiny butt backward to sit in a more comfortable position .
But this troubled Jiang Chen .
It was not the weight, but the tender feeling scratching on his legs had touched an indescribable place .
To simply describe the state between these two people . . .
Inside the bedroom of a girl, Jiang Chen sat on the side of the soft bed, and Yao Yao sat on his legs .
He took a deep breath as he tried his hardest to suppress the part of him from raising up . It would be awkward if it "stood up" .
But a faint fragrance entered his nostril because of his deep breath .
The tip of his head felt a tingling sensation .
Maybe it was because she felt something hard, or sensed Jiang Chen's "trouble," Yao Yao's face began to turn red .
"Big brother, you don't need to endure this . . . "
As she said that, Yao Yao buried her tiny head and silently putting her tablet down . Her feet also stopped dangling . The long shaking eyelashes seemed to be waiting for something .
[No, it's better to endure . ]
After an arduous internal conflict, Jiang Chen finally suppressed his desire and he decided not to put his claws on Yao Yao .
Seeing that Jiang Chen made no moves, Yao Yao pouted her mouth but didn't say anything as she continued to research on her tablet .
Jiang Chen let out a relief as he glanced at the dazzling amount of information on the tablet . The hiddenly shocked Jiang Chen also picked up his own tablet off the table and began to take care of his own business .
There was a large discrepancy of force at the front line . Based on the information provided by Zhao Gang, it is expected that after 20 days, the mutated human force would be ready to attack . When that happens, the river below the Zhufeng Highway bridge would be frozen . The mutated humans would launch their attack at that time .
On the screen was a visual sent back from the Hummingbird drone . Because of the existence of an anti-air machine gun, the task of capturing video footage could not be given to Chu Nan .
The dense red dots accumulated behind the snow hill on the side of the highway, as well as the anti-air machine guns and cannons covered in white cloths .
[If Jiang Lin's missile is completed, it would only take one hit to achieve what I want . . . ] Jiang Chen fantasized in his head but quickly shook his head . He then called Zhou Guoping from the Sixth Street .
The phone was quickly picked up .
Zhou Guoping's bald head appeared on the screen .
"Hello? Boss . Do you need me to do something?" The respectful voice lightened his mood .
"I need mercenaries, do you know any you are familiar with at Sixth Street?" Jiang Chen cut straight to the topic .
"Mercenaries?" Zhou Guoping paused for a moment, "Do you know already, boss?"
"Know?" Jiang Chen's expression was odd, he didn't understand what Zhou Guoping said .
"Mhmm, there is a rumor recently on Sixth Street . It said that the wreckages of 'God's Cane' lie inside somewhere in the city center . Of course, the validity of the information has yet to be confirmed, I am still investigating . If, boss, you are also interested that thing, I can help you investigate carefully . " Zhou Guoping said mysteriously .
"The God's Cane?" Jiang Chen was lost, just as he was about to ask what it was, he suddenly recalled the he read in the virtual world .
"Oh, I almost forgot that you are not from Wanghai . " Zhou Guoping slapped his forehead as he quickly explained, "It's a sky based weapon, also known as an orbital weapon-"
"Mhmm, I know, but what does that have to do with the Sixth Street?" Jiang Chen interrupted Zhou Guoping's explanation, he only wanted to listen to critical information .
"A mysterious wealthy man sent out quests at major bars and set a reward of one million crystals for the wreckage of God's Cane . "
"One million crystals? Fu*k, is that person crazy?" Jiang Chen almost jumped up .
Yao Yao looked at Jiang Chen in confusion . She moved her butt as she readjusted the way she sat .
"Ahem, the amount has been verified by Sixth Street officials . The quest had been stamped with the metal seal . With Sixth Street's official reputation, this quest shouldn't be fraudulent . " Zhou Guopign took a moment he continued, "The mercenaries stationed in the Sixth Street have gone insane . There are fewer missions in the winter as all of those people like to spend their days rotting away in the bars . Now someone offered such an astronomical number, even the not-so-strong hunting teams began to make moves . "
Jiang Chen’s eyebrows furrowed .
"So you are saying, it’s hard to hire people now?"
"I wouldn’t say it is hard, but the price is definitely higher . "
"That’s okay, I’ll send you the mission… Also, regarding the God’s Cane, keep an eye out for me . "
"Yes, boss . " Zhou Guoping exaggeratedly bowed .
Jiang Chen closed the communication menu and rubbed his nose .
He had an ominous feeling .
The snow this year would be much colder compared to the years before .
