My Wife is a Beautiful CEO - chapter-539-the-longbow
Each of the words spoken by Yang Chen was no different from a nail
directly hammered into not only Cruyffâ€™s heart, but everyone else
present as well!
The moment everyone present witnessed Yang Chen walking out of the
terrifying strike completely unharmed, only then did they truly
understand the power of a god!
The two six-winged angels had coincidentally depleted their energy and
time of descent. The two holy bodies fell from the sky, turning back to
ordinary blonde young men who were squatting on the ground and trying to
catch their breath from all that has happened.
It became clear to everyone that the Vatican had lost.
Seeing that Cruyff turned inattentive, Yang Chen knew that the old man
had lost his courage to even utter a word. Shaking his head, he raised
his left hand, prepared to break the old manâ€™s skull.
â€œStop!â€ yelled Gabriel out of a sudden.
Yang Chen turned around and asked, â€œNeed anything? Or would you like to
die first and spare yourself from seeing your elder die?â€
Faced with Yang Chenâ€™s untroubled expression, Gabriel subconsciously
took a step back. The tall soldier from Crusaders felt that he was just
like a duckweed in the water, floating about without dependence.
â€œYoâ€”Your Majesty Pluto, you shall not kill Cardinal, or you will
regret your actions later!â€ Gabriel had depleted all his energy just to
speak that sentence.
Yang Chen turned his head back to glance at Cruyff who looked like a
soulless corpse, before looking at the incredibly nervous Gabriel again.
As his eyes shone, he flung Cruyffâ€™s body aside and said, â€œEnlighten
me. What is it then that I will regret?
Gabriel suddenly had some courage, as Yang Chen seemed restrained in a
Gabriel tried to stay calm before saying, â€œYour Majesty Pluto didnâ€™t
come to Europe alone this time, did you?â€
Yang Chen pretended to be shocked. Smiling, he said, â€œYou guys have
done your investigation well. Thatâ€™s right, I came here with my
â€œSince thatâ€™s the case, Your Majesty Pluto, do you know where Miss
Lin currently is?â€ asked Garbriel expectantly.
Yang Chen squinted his eyes. â€œYou even found out her origin; no wonder
you managed to secure the role as leader. You seem to be more composed
than this cardinal Cruyffâ€”at least you still have a voice in a time
like this. To be honest, I have no clue where she is, but I think sheâ€™s
waiting for my return in Paris now.â€
Gabriel appeared to have regained confidence. â€œThat might not be
Yang Chenâ€™s face turned cold. â€œWhat do you mean?â€
â€œYour Majesty Pluto shall find out soon,â€ Gabriel spoke as he took
out a pocket-sized communication device which looked rather like
bluetooth headphones. Quietly, he put them on his head.
Currently, most people had left the venue long ago. The battle had gotten
out of hand after all. The admittedly weak individuals dared not risk
their lives by staying there. Hence, a lot of them had run back to the
cruise Louis XVI, ready to leave the island.
As a result, only ten or so people from the strongest organizations were
left in the enormous conference hall which had turned into a post-battle
These people, including Yang Chen, looked at Gabriel in confusion since
he had put on a communication device to communicate with an unknown party.
â€œYouâ€™ve seen the current situation, havenâ€™t you?â€ asked Gabriel.
â€œWeâ€™ll abandon our original plan. Cardinal Cruyff has been defeated.
Proceed with what you were going to do,â€ Gabriel added.
After that, Gabriel nodded his head before looking at Fodessa and the
other officers from the Seventh Bureau who were standing far away.
Being the hosts, Fodessa and the others had no way of escape. Many of
them had had the urge to leave long ago. Currently, they were left in an
â€œDeputy Director Fodessa, is there a usable monitor here?â€ asked
Fodessa was stunned as he was rather confused. However, being cautious as
to not enrage his guests, he quickly composed himself and nodded.
â€œYeah, there are some backup monitors left in the underground base.â€
It was inevitable that backup monitors had to be used. The battle earlier
had destroyed half of the place into flatland, while the roof was almost
utterly removed. Thus, the only usable electronics had to be retrieved
from somewhere else.
Gabriel nodded in satisfaction. He then said to Yang Chen, â€œYour
Majesty Pluto, please follow me to watch a video. You may decide whether
to carry out a massacre after that.â€
Yang Chen more or less figured out the situation. He sighed, â€œLetâ€™s
Gabriel let Fodessa walk in front to lead him and Yang Chen to an
undamaged region of the island to play a video.
The ten or so people left were naturally curious as well. Ignoring the
caution in their hearts, they followed Yang Chen behind and headed to the
deeper end of the base.
Supported by Lilith, Sargeras followed inside as well together with
Sauron, Abbess Yun Miao, and the rest.
The two blonde men with holy bodies stopped dazing off. Along with the
despair-filled Cruyff, they followed Gabriel inside.
Everyone then arrived at a relatively undamaged underground conference
hall. A large section of the roof had been destroyed, allowing the night
sky to be seen.
Due to the same reason, the sound of sea waves could be heard as well.
â€œDeputy Director Fodessa, please turn on the monitor and switch to
satellite mode,â€ ordered Gabriel.
Fodessa dared not disobey. Suffering deep in his heart because of the
mess, he forced himself to walk forward and switched on the large monitor.
Very quickly, a connection was made, displaying a clear image delivered
by the satellite.
The image that soon followed was one of a warship, specifically its deck.
It was parked in the middle of the ocean. The dark sky behind the warship
made the light on the deck appear exceptionally bright, allowing the
anti-aircraft guns behind to be seen clearly.
As everyone was wondering why there wasnâ€™t a single person on the
monitor, a bunch of people finally revealed themselves.
They were a bunch of burly, tall men dressed in the black uniform of
special forces, wearing military goggles and helmets. Yang Chen was
familiar with their appearance; they looked exactly like the kidnappers
he had met a while ago.
On their arms and chests was a permanent markâ€”the golden sun totem!
â€œThe people from the Realm of Gods?â€
Some officers there managed to recognize the people on the screen. They
obviously had a meeting before coming to the island, thus they were aware
of Apollo and the Realm of Gods.
After the emergence of the men in black, a few people who were tied up
were brought to the deck as well.
Yang Chen focused his attention on the screen, only to realize they were
Lin Ruoxi, Stern and Alice, and Harry and his mother!
However, all five of them were unconscious. After they were carried to
the deck, they were thrown on the ice-cold floor directly.
Fodessa was the first one to cry out. He stared at the screen in
disbelief as his wife and son were both there.
â€œLeader Gabriel! What is the meaning of this?! What does the Realm of
Gods have to do with you guys at the Vatican?!â€
Having been a highly ranked officer in the security bureau for many
years, he instantly understand the situation instantly, thus staring at
Storm Lola from the Sword in the Stone looked at Gabriel with contempt.
With a cold smile, she said, â€œIs there a need to ask? The disdainful
Vatican must be on the same side as the Realm of Gods. What a bunch of
scums. I didnâ€™t expect them to resort to terrorism. They mustâ€™ve
finally realized that they ran out of ways to dominate the world, thus
resorting to evil means.â€
â€œWhat a group of wicked western monks,â€ mocked Motakuto from
Gabriel completely ignored the scorns he received. All he did was stare
at the monitor while standing still.
On the contrary, Sauron and the others revealed looks of astonishment,
while Abbess Yun Miaoâ€™s palms started sweating.
At this moment, an unusual silhouette appeared on the deck.
It was a man dressed in white with an average physique. To everyoneâ€™s
surprise, on his chest was an enlarged golden sun totem.
The man too wore a helmet which seemed like one owned by Ancient Roman
generals.His eyes were filled with malice.
The front of his helmet also had a golden sun totem.
On his side, there should be a monitor as well, connected to the one on
the island via a satellite. â€œI believe some of you may recognize me,
but let me introduce myselfâ€¦ I am Apollo.â€
Indeed, quite a few of them on the island had guessed the manâ€™s
identity upon his emergence. However, their gazes still turned sharp when
the man gave confirmation.
Apolloâ€™s facial expression couldnâ€™t be seen under the helmet, but his
eyes revealed a slight smile. He continued, â€œThis must come as quite a
shock to you I imagine, as to why Iâ€™m related to the Vatican, but I
donâ€™t think it warrants a discussion as of now. Letâ€™s just leave it
at mutual interestsâ€”thatâ€™s all.â€
â€œHah! Although I donâ€™t know if youâ€™re really Apollo, Iâ€™m really
curious about the Vaticanâ€™s desires as you mentioned. Are you possibly
helping the Vatican to become the religion that dominates the world? How
ambitiousâ€¦â€ The person speaking was none other than Ayr, the member
of Blue Storm who had gone into a conflict with the Panther Mercenary
Group on the cruise earlier.
Apollo didnâ€™t speak, but waved his hand instead.
A man in black walked toward Apollo, with a golden longbow in his hands!
Complex runes and vine-like patterns were carved throughout the body of
the longbow. It could be considered a most delicate artwork!
Everyone soon realized that the longbow was no ordinary item. It might
even be a divine weapon. However, none of them knew why Apollo took the
longbow out. Was it possible that he wanted to shoot Ayr just because she
had disrespected him?
Who was he kidding? They were so well hidden in the island. Apollo was at
least a few kilometers away in the ocean. The night was like a blanket
shielding them from any light so how was he supposed to shoot so
However, what happened next had shocked the people on the island.
â€œFoolish humans. Since you doubt my identity and capability, Iâ€™ll
show you the difference between people and gods.â€
As soon as Apollo finished speaking, he really pulled the bow back!
When the golden longbow was pulled back, it started burning in golden-red
flame, while a bright red arrow formed completely by flame had suddenly
appeared on the silver-colored string!
â€œWhatâ€™s this item? Is it Apolloâ€™s divine weapon?!â€ cried someone
on the island.
Yang Chen frowned. He started to doubt himself.
The next second, Apollo let go of the string.
â€œIdiot, do you really think youâ€™ve become a god by using a
technologically advanced, impressive-looking weapon? Yoâ€”â€
Ayr didnâ€™t manage to finish her speech, but her mouth was wide open.
That was because a golden-ride flame could be seen through the broken
roof, approaching from the night sky at a ridiculously high speed,
heading toward the base!
â€œAyr, be careful!â€ The Blue Storm member excelled in forming light
shields stood before Ayr. Instantly activating his shield, he pulled Ayr
away from where she stood!
However, the flame arrow had changed its trajectory, following the
movement of the two people, just like a guided missile!
Boom! The flame arrow penetrated through the seemingly sturdy shield,
shooting through Ayrâ€™s and the manâ€™s body, instantly blasting them
The two powerusers who were well and alive just a moment ago were
destroyed by an arrow which came from an unknown distance, and turned
into fragments of bloody flesh, causing almost everyone present to be
Such an attack was much more terrifying than the battle on the island
earlier! It became clear that it was a godâ€™s doing!
â€œDo you still have any doubts now?â€ On the monitor, Apollo could be
seen placing his longbow down.
Fodessa directly kneeled on the ground. â€œApollo, what do you want? Why
kidnap my wife and my son?!â€
Apollo ignored Fodessaâ€™s question. Instead, he stared at Yang Chen who
was silent. â€œThe new Hades, I didnâ€™t expect you to appear in the
secret meeting this time. You messed up my plan, but lucky for you and
me, it hasnâ€™t been affected too much.
â€œPersephone is now in my hands. I believe this warrants a discussion
and hopefully the start of a good partnershipâ€¦â€
