Chapter 83

5pm . The golden rays of the sunset shine through the window .   Under the crystal Chandelier, two men are sitting at a dining table .   One on each end .   They are having dinner .  


“What are your plans?” asks Xie Han .


Bo Jinyan glances at him: “What do you think of Russia?”


Xie Han smiles: “I like it .   The heaven for drugs and weapons .   Let’s go to Russia together . ”


It’s decided .   They raise their glass .  


“To Russia . ”


“To Russia . ”


They have just finished their entree of smoked salmon .   The servants dish up their main course .   Xie Han adjusts his napkin and watches Bo Jinyan’s reaction .  


A plate with a medium cooked steak appears before Bo Jinyan .  


Bo Jinyan  flashes a sarcastic smile, then he leisurely picks up his knife and fork .   As he cuts the steak into small pieces, the juice flowed out from the steak shows streaks of blood . He picks up a small piece with his fork and puts it in his mouth .  


Xie Han looks with approval .


Soon, Bo Jinyan has finished his beef .   Salad and dessert is served next .  


Xie Han stands up .   He walks over to Bo Jinyan: “I’ve had enough to eat .   Please excuse me .   I will give you a tour of the mansion tonight .   When you finish your meal, one of the servants will show you to your room . ”


Bo Jinyan is about to put a slice of cake into his mouth .   He does not even look at Xie Han: “Ok . ” 


As Xie Han is about to leave, suddenly, he notices from the corners of his eyes, that a force is coming at him .   He tries to defend but it’s too late .   There is something poking his throat .   Bo Jinyan has grabbed Xie Han by his collar with one hand . And he is holding a fork by Xie Han’s throat with his other hand .


Their eyes meet .   Bo Jinyan is not smiling .   He has a look of disgust on his face .


A few minutes later .


“No more pathetic tests . ” Bo Jinyan lets go of him .   He sits down and says: “My patience is running out . ”


Xie Han’s throat is a little red and painful from the poke .   But he is not angry .   He laughs: “Ok . Ok .   I am not trying to test you .   I just want to see you eat some red meat . ”


Bo Jinyan pays no heed to his words .


Xie Han waves his hand .   A few red laser dots on Bo Jinyan’s body disappears .   The snipers who are pointing their guns at Bo Jinyan relaxes .  




Night .   In Anam’s hospital room .  


It’s almost midnight . But nobody intends to go to bed any time soon .   All the IT specialists are sitting at their desk .   The FBI agents and a rep from the army are gathered around a map, discussing the plan of attack .  


Fu Ziyu is still very weak .   His doctor orders him to get some rest .   He has no choice but be wheel-chaired back to his room .   But Jian Yao wants to keep up with the latest progress .   She insists to stay on .   But she is tired too .   Soon she doses off in her chair .   But after a short rest, she wakes up and immediately checks the screen .   It’s a view of a ceiling in a dark room .  


It is Bo Jinyan’s bedroom .   He is lying in bed, wide awake .   They can hear his breathing .   Every now and then, he turns his body, or sits up to drink some water .  


After dinner, Xie Han showed him around the estate .   He invited Bo Jinyan to his underground cellar to view some of his prized booties/body parts taken from his victims .   He also showed him some people that he’s kidnapped and kept in cells .   Bo Jinyan did a quick count . There were more than ten people imprisoned, including Yin Ziqi’s fiancé, Lin Yi Yang .   He looked pale and terrified .   He had lost a lot of weight since Bo Jinyan last saw him .   He was surprised to see Bo Jinyan there .   But he was too afraid to ask any questions .  


Xie Han said: “We’ll have some fun tomorrow . ”


Bo Jinyan smiled: “Sure . ”


It was a ‘pleasant’ conversation .   They didn’t say very much, but they seemed to understand what’s in each other’s minds .   When they reached Bo Jinyan's bedroom, Xie Han made sure he was happy with the room before he said goodnight and left .


And Bo Jinyan remained calm at all times .   He took a shower, then got changed and lie down on the bed .    


He has a little microphone in his ear, which means he can hear what’s going on in Anam’s room .   But he can’t speak .   Because he is sure the room is wired .  


Although Jian Yao can’t see Bo Jinyan, she can see what he is seeing .   Her heart follows his every move .   She is concerned for his safety .   Even though the army and the FBIs have surrounded the estate, it only takes a few seconds for Xie Han to kill him if he wants to .  


One of the FBI agent in Anam’s room walks over to Jian Yao .   He is in charge of ground operation for this case,  a Caucasian in his forties .  


Jian Yao smiles at him .   He looks like a considerate and sincere man: “Jenny, we commend you for your bravery and wisdom .   How are you feeling?”


Jian Yao smiles: “I am fine .   Thank you .   I want to thank you too .   It’s a risky plan and the FBI has put a lot of effort into this operation . ”


In fact, so many people are involved in this operation - the media, FBI, the army, Maryland University criminal psychologist… Everyone is cooperating with Bo Jinyan in setting up this trap for Xie Han .   This is why Jian Yao almost believed the existence of Bo Jinyan’s split personality .   This lie is too grand .   It’s so ‘ridiculous’ that it’s hard not to believe .    


The FBI agent laughs, He says seriously: “Simon has given a lot for our country .   We have great respect for him .   And Xie Han is a cunning and cruel criminal .   We cannot afford to let him slip .   Therefore, we have no reason to refuse Professor Bo’s requests . ”




A few hours later, Anam comes to her .  


This genius hasn’t slept for days .   He looks tired .   He quietly walks up to her, and takes a seat beside her .   He puts something on the table that looks like a walkie talkie .  


“He can hear you if you speak into this .   Just press the red button when you speak . ” Then he leaves and walks back to his seat .  


Jian Yao looks appreciatively at Anam .   She picks up the device .


“Hi, Jinyan . ”  She speaks with a soft low voice .  


Everyone in the room can hear their conversation .   They all smile .   Some of them turn around and look at her .  


Jian Yao is not paying any attention to the rest of the people in the room . She is just staring at the screen .   About one second later, Bo Jinyan lifts his hand and touches his nose .  


It’s a sign he’s heard her .  


She feels both happy and sad at the same time .   But more than that, she really misses him .   A feeling that words alone cannot convey .   She pauses for a while, then all she can say is a simple phrase of encouragement: “You can do it .   I believe in you . ”


Everything has come to a stand still .   No one says a word .


After a while, Bo Jinyan gets out of bed and switches on the light .   He walks to the bathroom .

He stands in front of the mirror, and stare at his own image…


… to stare at her .  


He wants her to see him .


Jian Yao looks at his handsome face .   Then he bends down, splashes some water over his face and dries it with a towel .   Then he looks into the mirror again, and gives a faint smile .  




After their ‘greeting’, Jian Yao relaxed a bit .   An FBI agent escorted her back to her room to rest .   She asked the nurse to wake her up in a few hours .   But when the time came, Fu Ziyu told the nurse it’s not necessary, that Jian Yao needed the rest .  


If Bo Jinyan was there, that’ what he will do!  Rest well, Jian Yao .   When you wake up, he will be back .  




In the control room .  


They are ready for action .   All the agents, officers and Anam etc are doing their final briefing .


“5:20am . ” says the agent .   “Simon, in fifteen minutes, we will start our attack .   The helicopter will come and bring you out . ” 


Bo Jinyan is awake .   He stands on the balcony, looking out to the surrounding woods and forests .   He uses his finger to tap the marble table top his hand is resting on .    


He’s survived the night .   He looks at his watch: 5:26am .   He walks back into the room and takes a sip of water .  


“Knock… knock…” A strong tap on the door .  


Everyone in the control room tenses up .   They don’t expect Xie Han to wake up so early in the morning .  


Someone suggests: “Perhaps we should start our attack sooner . ” 


The chief in command keeps silent .  


Bo Jinyan opens the door .   Xie Han is standing outside his room in a white track suit . He leans against the wall and smiles at him: “Early bird catches the worm .   I am about to go for my morning exercise .   I’m sure you will be interested . ”  


Bo Jinyan smiles .




They are on the roof of the mansion .   It’s an observation deck .


Standing on the deck, Bo Jinyan has an unbroken 360 degrees view of an entire surrounding area - the meadows, the gentle slopes of the nearby hills, the forests…   There are two sniper rifles strapped on the edge of a corner on the observation deck .


Xie Han’s five body guards are standing not too far away from them, at a distance of around fifteen metres .   Xie Han picks up one of the rifles, he aims it to the ground, then turns his head towards Bo Jinyan: “L115A3 .   It’s my favourite . ”


Bo Jinyan takes up the other rifle .   He looks through the scope and says to Xie Han: “Yes, it’s my favourite rifle too . ”   He glances at his watch .   5:32am .  Two more minutes till the attack .

The chief in command asks Anam: “Have we penetrated his security system yet?”


Anam smiles and adjusts his glasses: “Yes, of course . ”


“Ok . ” Chef in command orders: “No change to the original plan .   We will attack in two minutes .   Hunter no . 1 Fighter Jet will assist Simon . ”





Bo Jinyan hears everything that’s said in Anam’s room .   But there is no change whatsoever in his facial expressions .   He aims at a patch of grass .   Suddenly he remembers Jian Yao .


Soon .   My lady .


I will be back by your side .  


“Choose your target . ”  He hears Xie Han’s voice .   He takes his eyes away from the scope and looks towards the ground .   Xie Han has ‘released’ his prisoners .   From a distance, they look like ants crawling around .  


Obviously, Xie Han wants to use them as living targets .   It’s a hunting game, using humans as their preys . From Xie Han’s expression, Bo Jinyan knows it’s not the first time he has played this game .  


Bo Jinyan looks at the ragged prisoners, he curls the edge of his lips: “Oh… . it’s too easy . ”


Xie Han’s face glows with joy .


Then they hear a few gun shots, and the laughter of a few man from somewhere that’s below the observation deck .   Then all the prisoners panics and starts running .


“Is this… more fun?” Xie Han asks .


Bo Jinyan looks at him: “Well, I’ll give it a try .   If you don’t mind, I would like to make the first shot . ”


“Be my guest . ”


Bo Jinyan bends down .   His eyes look through the scope once again . At the same time, he quickly glances at his watch .  


Ten seconds to go .


Since Anam has penetrated Xie Han’s security system, the army is already hiding within the grounds of the estate, 


He counts in his mind:  “10, 9 , 8 … . 3, 2, 1!”


Engine sound .  


The engine sound becomes louder and louder .   Then they hear the sound and feel the movement of a whistling wind beneath them .   In a spit second, Bo Jinyan turns towards Xie Han and points his rifle in front of Xie Han’s heart .  


But once Xie Han heard the whistling wind, he instinctually draws out a gun and points it at Bo Jinyan .  


Their eyes meet .   In close range .   Two men,  Two guns .


Bo Jinyan’s gun is pointing at Xie Han’s heart . And Xie Han’s gun is pointing at Bo Jinyan’s forehead .   Xie Han’s body guards were initially shocked by what’s happened . Then they quickly point their guns at Bo Jinyan .   One of them shouts at Bo Jinyan: “Drop your gun . ”

Then they heard some gun shots on ground level .  


Bo Jinyan looks coldly at Xie Han .   Xie Han’s mouth curves into an ironic smile .   Suddenly, he realises things are not quite going his way anymore .  


“Oh shit!” He mutters .


Then Bo Jinyan hears a voice speak to him from the control room: “ Simon, get down!”


He ducks down immediately .   At the same time, Xie Han pulls his trigger .   The bullet misses Bo Jinyan’s throat by centimetres .   A helicopter hovers above them .   There is a row of machine guns attached to it .   The pilot fires at all those who are standing on the observation deck .  

Smoke is everywhere .   The body guards are shot . They fall onto the ground .   Xie Han sensed something was wrong so he followed Bo Jinyan’s lead to duck down, but he was still a fraction too slow .   His right leg is shot .   Blood gushes out of the wound .  


Bo Jinyan wastes no time .   He tries to shoot Xie Han!


But Xie Han is well trained .   He manages to hide behind a table that is turned sideways .   He tries to make his way to the stairs .   If he can get downstairs quickly, he can run to the lift that takes him to his room, where there is a secret tunnel that he can use to escape .  


Yet, he is not fast enough .   A second helicopter comes up from behind . Another row of machine guns are pointing straight at him .   At the same time, a few soldiers from the army have come up to the observation deck and surrounds him .  


Bo Jinyan stands up .   He shakes off the dusk on his clothes .   He looks at Xie Han .


There is no way he can escape now .


Xie Han’s face is pale . But he also looks relaxed .  


“Put down your gun .   Kneel down . ” says one of the FBI agents .


He throws his gun away and reaches both hands to touch the back of his head .   But he didn’t kneel down like the agent asked him to .   Instead, he turns around and faces Bo Jinyan .


He starts to laugh .


“Simon .   Simon, Simon - You don’t understand, do you?  You give yourself to save these foolish and mediocre people .   But do they understand you? You choose a lonely path, and a foolish way to live . ”


He is slowly stepping backwards, closer and closer to the edge of the deck .   One of the agents asks Bo Jinyan if they should shoot Xie Han .   Bo Jinyan slowly shakes his head .  


“Simon .   I will die here today .   But in the same way, your life also ends here . ” He seems to have resumed his usual composure: “You didn’t win . We will meet again in hell… my Bo Jinyan . ”


He then jumps off the edge .   Everyone runs towards the edge .   They see a body falling in mid air, like a rock sinking to the bottom of the ocean, like a leaf flowing through the air towards the ground…


“Pang . . ” Suddenly, there is a huge explosion .   His body becomes a fireball .   Then all they see are ashes flying in the air and dripping like rain onto the ground .  


No one speaks .  


Xie Han strapped a bomb to his body .   Like Bo Jinyan said before, he will not allow himself to be captured .   Before his death, he turned himself into a ball of ash .


The officers and agents behind him continue with their rescue plan .   The morning sun is shining .   There is a golden glow over the estate .   Bo Jinyan looks around .   The agents have reached the victims and are helping them to the ambulances .  



He turns around, and boards the helicopter that is waiting to bring him to the hospital, where Jian Yao is waiting .
