Chapter 707: Underground Palace 1
Inside the mansion, the two groups of black shadows quietly floated out
and moved within the shadows of the stone armrest, so that no one would
notice their movements.
Somewhere not too far away from the truck, several sturdy Nighthawks
members were carrying boxes towards the truck. They gently and very
carefully walked along the slanted steel plate and placed the box covered
in black cloth on one of the large containers they prepared in advance.
The container was filled with a large amount of white, ice-like substance
that was constantly exuding white cold mist; it was something like dry
ice. As soon as the box was put into it, it was constrained, as though
the box was not an object but a living thing.
The few sturdy men quickly sealed the container with the lid and covered
it with seven to eight locks.
“Take good care of it, it’s something that the commander specified to
handle with caution.” A leader-like Nighthawk member whispered to the
men carrying the boxes.
“Understood, don’t worry, we will take turns to look after it.” A
man laughed and said in a low voice.
The leader nodded, lowered the offloading boot of the vehicle and went to
delegate the workers to move other stuff. There was a total of three
carrier trucks, and he needed to verify all three of them one by one.
The two groups of black shadows stopped under the shadow of the armrest
and appeared to be waiting for something.
Soon, everything in the villa was being moved into the trucks, they
started up the trucks and it seemed like they were ready to leave.
Some Nighthawk members jumped into the car and closed the door.
The two men who were guarding the box both lit a cigarette, puffing on it
from time to time, and exhaled rings of smoke. They were having a
pleasant conversation and laughed occasionally.
The two groups of black shadows started moving slowly. They took
advantage of the moment when the car had started moving forward slightly
to quickly float behind the truck carrying the box and get into the
Where the light shone on the shadows, two groups of transparent human
shaped outlines could be vaguely seen.
“Get in position.”
“It has already started.” Both shadows were exchanging information
with each other.
Amidst the darkness, dots of red lights started flashing in a corner
where the two guardsmen were not able to see.
Along with two light noises, the two guardsmen fell. They clutched at
their necks with their eyes rolled back, and fell to the ground twitching.
“We got it, notify someone to pick us up.”
One of the dark shadows suddenly walked out of the shade and the air
vaguely twisted for a moment before suddenly, a small thin figure
appeared. It looked like a lovely little girl.
She walked before the container with an unknown tool in her hand, and
lightly pressed it along the edges of the container and clapped her hands.
Along with a crisp sound, all the locks on the container was fully
opened. After the lid of the container was removed, the box covered in
black cloth that was exuding a white mist was seen in the middle of the
The girl raised her left wrist and gently tapped on the screen of her
watch. The screen started flashing and transformed into a black display,
upon which a smiling old man’s face appeared on the screen.
“How was it? You got it?” the old man was the Kabb of the Bailey
group, and he was smiling while he slowly enjoyed his coffee.
“We have arrived at the targeted area, but the targeted object is too
large, so we can’t easily move it.” the woman replied in a low voice.
“Can you split it?” Kabb asked.
“It’s difficult.” the woman glanced at the box’s material under
the black cloth, “It is made out of the latest alloy manufacturing
“Then drill it. Destroy the entire box quickly, you do not have much
time,” Kabb ordered.
The woman switched off the screen on her watch, and a small black knife
popped out of her left hand, one that looked like a fruit knife. She
placed the knife on top of the surface of the box under the black cloth.
Suddenly, there were two saw-like crisscrossed razor blades at the tip of
the sharp knife which was moving in a cutting motion alternatively, and
also a needle-like drill in the center which was rotating constantly,
causing sparks to appear on the surface of the black box.
Suddenly, the box made an extremely piercing alarming sound.
“Warning!!!” the Nighthawk members started yelling outside.
At that moment, along with a ‘thump’ sound, a big hole was being made
on the box beneath the black cloth.The edge of the metal bent upwards and
formed a few sharp bulges. The size of the hole was sufficient for a hand
to reach in.
The girl kept her watch and drill without hesitation then stretched her
hands into the hole.
All of a sudden, she shuddered and her body felt stiff.
“Hurry up!” the other black shadow urged urgently.
Strangely, the woman did not respond and she remained stunned. Her hand
was left motionless in the box and she was frozen still. Her forehead had
started dripping with a large amount of sweat, and her eyes were wide
open. It seemed like she was enduring some kind of terrifying torture.
Suddenly, an enormous force slammed into the girl mercilessly, directly
throwing her out and hit the hidden black shadow behind. The both of them
moaned in pain and rolled off the moving truck.
Before they even landed on the ground, rounds of firing gunshots were
heard, and the only things left on the ground were two heavily shot
At that moment, the hole in the box started emitting traces of invisible
distortion and that small area where it was distorted vaguely looked as
though it was a ferocious dragon head.
“What happened?! They found out about it?” Kabb looked at the static
monitor screen in front of him.
“I’m afraid so.” Said Medis while frowning, “The sisters rarely
fail, this time they should have got into trouble. It seems like the
reason why Garen left something so important here is that he’s well
“Let’s start our first backup plan, doing it the hard way seems to be
the only option.” Kabb thought for a moment and said with a low voice.
“I’ll go get ready.” Medis understood what her boss meant.
Kabb’s face got slightly gloomy.
He had to get the masks as he’d heard from the Primary Colors that
Garen had several masks with him. Moreover, it was part of Garen’s
secret, which was also something that he’d wanted to uncover for a long
At that time, the campsite was getting busier as Medis seemed to have
arranged something, and the members of the Bailey Group started moving
“Do you need me to help?” suddenly, a new image popped out on his
watch screen. It was a sinister looking hook-nosed man, who had his chin
slightly lifted while he stared at Kabb on the other side of the screen
with a hint of arrogance.
“Mr. Gremlin.” Kabb remained calm, “You’re pretty
“Garen ruined my dream, so how can I not pay attention to his
actions?” Gremlin responded coldly, “Don’t tell me that you can’t
even deal with what Garen left here? If so, then I’m disappointed in
“You do not have to worry about these, I will deal with it.” Kabb
said with a false smile on his face, “How is your White Phoenix Base
Upon mentioning that, Gremlin’s face twitched. Since Lesothy had put a
lot of pressure on the Primary Colors, it had led to a huge setback on
the reconstruction of the White Phoenix base. After all, the White
Phoenix base was just one of the Primary Color Group’s branches. To
them, a Violent Organization branch was not something that important.
There were many other factions within the group that were happy to see
his branch being suppressed.
“It seems like you do not need my help.”
Kabb smiled, stopped talking and directly ended the contact. For now,
Gremlin was worth nothing to him; he was of no importance, his branch was
gradually being abandoned by the Primary Colors, and his forces had been
greatly damaged by Garen. Without the deterrence of the special-class
mercenaries, nevermind Garen, even to Kabb, he was just someone of no
Wellington family’s underground palace.
Garen slowly walked down the underground passages. Inside the passageway,
there were circular arch-type stone doors, and every few meters, there
would be a greyish-yellow stone door, all of them were open.
Garen looked forward and could not see an end to this stone tunnel.
Garen could only vaguely see the torch of Nasira and the rest of them
somewhere in front.
He himself did not need any illumination, as his extremely strong senses
were enough for him to get through any environment without any hindrance.
The structure of the underground palace was very peculiar; both sides of
the passageway were filled with yellow, nails-like steel points, and
looked like the nail boards of the ancient criminal law. On top of the
tunnel, there was a round dome of cloud patterned arcs. He did not know
what the patterns were about, but they were bending all over the place.
Not knowing why Garen felt that there was something wrong as he moved
forward, it was as though every time he went through a door, he entered
into a new environment. Through the layers of stone doors, the feeling
that he felt now was completely different from when he’d entered.
Also, he could no longer see Nasira and the rest in front of him.
He did not know what AG had planned, but they were not the kind to rush
forward and leave him behind.
He took his phone out but there was no signal.
To avoid destroying the valuable information in it, Garen had not brought
along the notebook that enabled him to contact AG, and he figured that AG
would not have brought it either.
Garen took a few steps forward and he could sense that his surroundings
were being filled with a faint dusk-like yellow light, though he did not
know how the yellow light was appearing in the underground palace.
The nail boards on both sides of the wall were filled with spikes, and
there was a stone door in front which he could not see an end to the
passage, which kept going downwards as though there was no end to it.
At that point, the entire tunnel had brightened up, the yellow lighted up
the entire tunnel, but the surroundings were dead silent, and he could
not hear Nasira or AG at all.
Garen looked back and forth, the door which he entered initially had
completely disappeared, and all he could see was an endless amount of
stone doors. All the opened stone doors were quiet yet they oddly
connected to form a straight tunnel. The faint yellow light illuminated
the whole tunnel.
“It’s not the same as when I first came in.” Garen frowned, “I
only went through five stone doors when I came in. Is this an illusion or
‘It should be a maze.’ Black Sethe whispered, ‘There’s something
weird about this place, please be alert.’
“I know.” Garen nodded and continued walking forward.
