Chapter 147: Have It End Here
The moment she saw Eugene, Bai Chen’s body began to tremble the moment. She felt as if he would slap or kick her in the next second, forcing her to do all kinds of disgusting and degrading things.
As long as she dared to resist, she would suffer double the punishment—a kind that would result in death.
After suffering failures in the first few attempts, her tortured mind was no longer clear. Bai Chen was muddle-headed, timid, and subservient.
Upon seeing Bai Chen, Eugene seemed to recall parts of his identity. His eyes gradually turned fierce as he straightened his back.
At this moment, Shang Jianyao took a step toward him.
Eugene’s body also began to tremble. His back hunched as if he couldn’t bear the weight of his body any longer. His fierce eyes were no longer filled with malice and were filled with a pleading expression instead.
If Eugene had a tail, he would definitely be shaking it.
It was only then that Long Yuehong confirmed that he wasn’t hallucinating.
F*ck! Isn’t this Eugene, that terrifying slave-catching team’s leader!? Why was he brought back by Team Leader and Shang Jianyao, and why is he virtually wagging his tail and begging for mercy? Where are his bodyguards? What about his mechanical modifications?
The explosion at North Street just now was an assault on Eugene’s convoy by Team Leader and Shang Jianyao? Then, Shang Jianyao made him a victim of Inference Clowning?
Didn’t Team Leader say that she was going to a nightclub to dance and search for clues? How did such a huge matter happen? Furthermore, they acted so casually as if they had gone out shopping, bumped into a friend by chance, and had invited him home!
On the other side, Bai Chen gradually returned to her senses and figured out what had happened.
With her experience and knowledge, it wasn’t difficult for her to guess that Shang Jianyao and her team leader’s dance and search for clues before leaving was only an excuse.
They were after Eugene from the beginning.
In less than an hour, they brought back Eugene—who was heavily protected and also very strong personally.
This was many times more difficult than assassinating him.
Bai Chen asked herself whether she would’ve taken the chance of sniping Eugene if she didn’t have the corresponding psychological barrier and had sufficient intelligence to support her. However, it was impossible to capture him alive.
Bai Chen’s breathing became heavier as her body trembled slightly. She tried her best to raise her head and look at Eugene.
But when their eyes met, Eugene’s eyes became fierce once again. It seemed as though he didn’t want to show weakness in front of his former prey.
Shang Jianyao quickly made a terse grunt.
Eugene’s eyes flickered as he hurriedly looked at the ground.
After such a long confrontation without suffering an assault, Bai Chen slowly calmed down and came to a realization—the seemingly invincible devil appeared to be all show and no substance.
He had no way of ever hurting her again.
Bai Chen got a hold of her trembling bit by bit, and her face contorted slightly. Her eyes began to redden, and her breathing became abnormally heavy.
Suddenly, Bai Chen turned her body to the left and tightened her right thigh, driving her calf and toes. She made them lash out like a whip toward the space between Eugene’s legs.
Eugene instinctively wanted to dodge, but he couldn’t react in time.
He clamped his legs together, gripped his crotch, and collapsed. The pain was so intense that he couldn’t even scream. Only the sound of hollow gasping lingered in his throat; he was like a rooster that had its neck gripped.
Hiss… Long Yuehong felt a chill run down his spine, and he unconsciously turned his body to the side.
Jiang Baimian secretly clicked her tongue and didn’t disturb Bai Chen.
After kicking out, Bai Chen bent down and propped her hands on her knees. She panted heavily as if she had used all her strength. Her eyes seemed to be a little misty, and droplets of water dripped to the ground, spreading out.
Bai Chen quickly wiped her eyes with her sleeve and stood up. She then looked at Eugene—who was curled up like a shrimp—and let out a long breath. After that, she spoke to Shang Jianyao and Jiang Baimian in a slightly hoarse voice. “Can I get Auntie Nan to deal with him together? She will definitely keep it a secret.”
Upon thinking of the dark scarf around Auntie Nan’s neck, Jiang Baimian nodded slightly. “Sure.”
Bai Chen immediately went out and walked down the stairs to the bottom.
When he realized that Eugene had fainted from the pain, Long Yuehong couldn’t help but ask, “Y-you guys didn’t leave just to capture him, right?”
Shang Jianyao smiled and replied, “This is called taking precautions.”
“Isn’t… Isn’t this too rushed?” Long Yuehong found it a little unacceptable.
Shang Jianyao thought for a moment. “It would be a pity not to put on a horror story during such a good night.”
Jiang Baimian quietly rolled her eyes and stood by the ajar door, paying attention to the commotion outside.
Before long, Bai Chen walked into the room with Auntie Nan, who wore a dark-red cotton coat.
Auntie Nan—who had her hair tied up in a high bun, looking very charming—carefully closed the door and watched Bai Chen flip the unconscious Eugene around.
Her mouth opened, forming a small circle that didn’t close for a long time. Her body slowly trembled, much stronger than Bai Chen’s previous trembles.
Shaking, she lowered her head and softly laughed as if she were whimpering. As she laughed, she quickly walked to Eugene’s side, squatted, and pulled up his coat and T-shirt.
Eugene’s chest and abdomen were revealed, shimmering with a metallic luster under the light. This was embedded with a series of machinery, which had several sockets that could be opened.
“Injection sockets?” Jiang Baimian muttered ‘softly’ to herself.
Her words snapped Auntie Nan to attention as she laughed maniacally. “It’s him! It’s really him!”
As she laughed, her legs went limp. She sat on the ground and squeezed out a faint sob from the depths of her throat.
Bai Chen didn’t stop her. She waited for Auntie Nan to calm down.
Auntie Nan slowly stood up and nodded at Shang Jianyao, Jiang Baimian, and Long Yuehong. “Thank you.”
“It’s only right,” Shang Jianyao replied smoothly.
Jiang Baimian wanted to glare at him, but she felt that there was nothing wrong with his answer.
Auntie Nan paused and curiously asked, “Did you come to Weed City this time to deal with him?”
She thought that the people opposite her were helpers that Bai Chen had hired for revenge.
“Uh…” Jiang Baimian hesitated, unsure if she should deny the other party’s guess. In the face of such an inconvenient situation, she had a very good plan.
The next second, she turned around and looked at Shang Jianyao.
Shang Jianyao immediately replied, “It was convenient.”
“…” Auntie Nan was speechless.
In the basement of Ah Fu’s Gun Shop.
Eugene slowly woke up and saw a glowing, yellow light bulb.
What is this place? He snapped to his senses and began recalling his previous encounter. He then remembered that he had been attacked and had taken the initiative to follow the attacker to a certain place.
After that, Bai Chen had kicked him in his groin. This brought him intense pain that he had never experienced in his life.
At the thought of this, Eugene felt the discomfort in his lower body again. The stinging pain followed him like a shadow.
Several faces then appeared in front of him, looking down at him.
One of them belonged to Bai Chen, whom he had previously encountered. He was a little familiar with the other few faces, but he couldn’t recall who they belonged to.
“He… He…” Eugene wanted to say something, but he realized that his mouth was stuffed full.
Bai Chen stared at him and smiled. “There’s no need to struggle. All the machinery on you has been destroyed.”
With that said, she took off the gray scarf around her neck and revealed the two markings—’female slave’ and ‘105.’
Beside her, Auntie Nan undid her scarf. In the same spot were similar bluish-black symbols. One was ‘female slave,’ and the other was ’98.’
The women standing beside her also took off their scarves, revealing the marks on their necks.
Eugene immediately understood what was going on. He wanted to mock and deride them, but he also felt fear from the bottom of his heart.
Bai Chen ignored him and turned to look at Auntie Nan. “Are you doing the honors first, or should I?”
Auntie Nan fell silent for a few seconds before gritting her teeth. “Let me do it.” She then picked up a snow-white dagger beside her.
Eugene knew that the situation wasn’t good. He tried his best to make his gaze ferocious to intimidate the other party and struggled violently.
Upon seeing those familiar, terrifying eyes, Auntie Nan’s body couldn’t help but tremble again. She shakily raised the dagger in her hand, took a few breaths, and suddenly stabbed down.
As the feeling of the sharp blade entering flesh entered her brain, she finally seemed to break free from invisible restraints.
She cried out as the dagger in her hand stabbed down crazily.
Outside the underground chamber, Jiang Baimian and Shang Jianyao leaned against the wall on one side and quietly listened to the cries, shouts, and curses coming from inside.
After a while, everything finally calmed down.
They waited for a few more minutes before Auntie Nan opened the door. Her body was covered in blood.
Jiang Baimian curiously looked inside, unable to connect the badly mangled corpse to Eugene.
Shang Jianyao wanted to say something, but he tightly shut his mouth again.
“We’ll seal up this chamber tonight. Nobody will be able to open it again.” Auntie Nan hoarsely informed Jiang Baimian and Shang Jianyao about how she would deal with the corpse.
As she spoke, she sighed and laughed self-deprecatingly. “This was originally a place we specially built to hide because we were afraid of Eugene and the others’ pursuit. Who knew that it would become his tomb? I hope his soul is also sealed here, never to be freed.”
Clap! Clap! Clap!
Shang Jianyao applauded, indicating that she had said it very well.
This stunned everyone present.
“Alright, get busy. We’re going up.” Jiang Baimian quickly tried to smooth things over. “If you need any help, you can look for us anytime.”
Auntie Nan nodded and laughed. “Your rent will be waived. Unfortunately, I don’t have time tonight. Otherwise, I can give you some service.
“It’s fine. After we escaped, we didn’t dare wander around. We could only stay here and make a living with the gun shop. Occasionally, we use our bodies to provide for our lives. Don’t worry; we are selective about our targets and have taken protective measures. Our bodies are still considered healthy.
“Haha, men will do; likewise for women.”
Jiang Baimian immediately coughed. “We’ll talk about it later. We’ll talk about it later.”
The Old Task Force trio quickly returned to the second floor and walked to their rooms.
Bai Chen suddenly stopped and stood at the door. With her back facing Shang Jianyao and Jiang Baimian, she said in a low voice, “Thank you.”
