If Xinghe was still alive, she would have left a clue for him online…
However, there was nothing even after he had checked a few places. Under the rim of the hat, Mubai's dark eyes dimmed, and his lips had melted into a thin line. He powered on regardless. At that time, Barron came in with Charlie.
"General, the men are here!" One of the soldiers came into to report.
"Let them in," Philip said immediately.
"Yes!" The soldiers left to inform Barron. Barron nodded as he shot Charlie a warning glance. He had warned Charlie along the way, if he revealed more than the base's location, he would kill Sam's gang. Charlie promised him reluctantly which calmed Barron's heart quite a bit.
After Barron led Charlie into the room, he saluted Philip and said reverentially, "General, I've brought you the man you need! He is Charlie, he once infiltrated the IV Syndicate's base, you can ask him anything you want."
Both Philip and Mubai looked at Charlie. His body was covered with wounds, his clothes were dyed red, his hair and beard unkempt. His tall body was swaying from exhaustion and his face was incredibly pale but there was an indomitable spirit behind his eyes. It was obvious that this was a character.
Philip waved Barron away. "Excuse us for now."
Barron was shocked but he had to obey the order. He snuck Charlie one last warning glance before leaving. Charlie's face was unchanged which worried Barron because Charlie could reveal something that would be harmful to him. However, the damage wouldn't be big, or at least, not big enough to make Philip punish him. After all, this was a war-torn country; there was no innocents. If one looked hard enough, one could find skeletons in everyone's closet.
Barron was comforted by these thoughts. However, as he closed the door behind him, he received a call.
"Hello?" Barron picked up the call from an unknown call.
"Barron, I will give you twenty minutes to let Sam's group go or else the proof of your criminal activities will be known across the country," a woman's calm yet forceful voice came from the other end of the line.
Barron's mind was stunned. He covered the phone and walked far away before demanding severely, "Who are you? Do you have any idea who you're extorting‽"
Xinghe smirked. "I'm not kidding with you. I have the evidence of your drug smuggling and selling history, do you want me to send them to you to verify?"
Barron's face shifted. "You're that Eastern woman?"
Xinghe ignored him. "Don't play tricks with me because I'm watching your every move. If you don't cooperate, I don't mind going down with you. But a clever man like you wouldn't want that, right?"
Barron chuckled humorlessly. "I'm sorry I have no idea what you're talking about. If I really have done such a thing, then release it to the public. But woman, I have to tell you, I will find you and make you pay for threatening me like this!"
Barron slammed his phone shut. He believed Xinghe was bluffing, she wouldn't have the dirt on him. 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
