Embers Ad Infinitum - Chapter 452
The figure was dressed in a loose gray robe, and his khaki hair was rather sparse, but no matter how powerful he was, or how he looked, he looked like a majestic lion.
This person turned out to be General Focas who had worked with the “Old Tune Team” before.
He is also a veteran of the Senate, one of the commanders of the city defense army, and a representative of the center.
This made it difficult for Jiang Baimian to conceal his surprise.
Boss Hugo’s friend turned out to be General Focas?
In terms of identity, status, and experience, these two people have nothing to do with each other!
The world is amazing. Many things are always beyond your reasoning… When Jiang Baimian calmed down, Shang Jian Yao already smiled and said hello:
“General, you still owe us a celebration banquet.”
Focas moved He lowered his eyebrows:
“You are not surprised why it is me?”
“If the real lion sitting in your place is a real lion, then I might be surprised.” I don’t know which Shang Jian Yao among the nine people is not surprised. Looks like.
At this time, Jiang Baimian also returned to normal, and smiled and
said : “The point is not who is talking, but what is said.”
She is very curious, what will General Focas ask for herself and others, and still go through Uzbekistan. Ge boss this line.
Focas sat upright, showing the old-school temperament from the war years.
He calmly said:
“I want to know what you got from Marcus.”
This… Jiang Baimian expected multiple answers, but none of them came close.
How did he determine that we did it in such a short period of time? When Shang Jian Yao obtained information from Marcus, the general was not even present! Although Jiang Baimian was psychologically prepared for the exposure of his identity, he thought it would not be so fast, at least two or three days.
Moreover, from the “old tune group” who went back to the Ugo Hotel at random, they received news that General Focas wanted to see them a few days ago. At that time, they had just retired from the highest arena and got them. The key information in Marcus’s memory.
As soon as it happened, was General Focas sure that it was us? Jiang Baimian controlled himself and didn’t let his brows frown.
Shang Jianyao made no secret of it, and curiously asked:
“How did you recognize us?”
General Focas smiled:
“You are still too young, and you don’t know enough about the complexities of this world, and you should always I’m very fortunate to have lost awe in certain things.” After
explaining the great truth in an old-fashioned tone, he added:
“There are too many strange abilities in the dust, and there are all kinds of advanced technologies that originated from the old world. Disguise does not mean absolute safety, at least for me, it is invalid.
“The first time you entered the highest arena, observed Marcus, and confirmed the environment, I recognized you, but I didn’t think it was necessary to expose it. , You can see what you can do. As a result, your performance is better than I thought. “
Hearing this, Jiang Baimian couldn’t help but glanced at Shang Jianyao.
She never expected such a thing in all her calculations.
Although the main mistake was due to lack of intelligence, General Focas just now There are a few words that are true. The “old-tone group” lacks sufficient knowledge of the complexity of the world, and some of the choices are really too risky.
The ability to make the disguise invalid, or, the technology? The technology is not so good. Like, there were no other electrical signals on him at the time. Biological results? Suddenly, Jiang
Baimian had a lot of thoughts. She did not ask where General Focas recognized her and the others because of this. Obviously involving the other party’s secret.
Shang Jianyao had no scruples about this, raised his hand and touched his chin:
“A certain ability?
“Dog nose? Remember our taste?”
This, it is possible… next time you remember to use irritating perfume… Jiang Baimian was thinking about the problem and didn’t correct Shang Jianyao’s impolite words.
General Focas nodded calmly:
“I have seen this type of ability, it can indeed see through your disguise, unless you spray it in advance, um, some research results in the biological field.”
Pheromone perfume? Jiang Baimian is no stranger to this.
She could hear General Focas’s implication:
“I am using other abilities.”
Seeing that the other party was obviously unwilling to answer, Jiang Baimian returned to the subject and said with a smile:
“After O’Lei died, you were in the original city. ‘It played a vital role in the changes in the political situation, and I didn’t even know what secrets Marcus had.”
Focas maintained a majestic attitude, but his tone was very calm:
“I do make a little contribution, but It’s not as critical as you think.
“During that time, many people who had experienced the chaotic age were still alive. “
That’s it.” Shang Jianyao made a direct voice.
Jiang Baimian turned to ask:
“As the veteran of the’First City’, the most experienced general, what do you know about this? “
You don’t need to know. “Focus is as direct as Shang Jianyao.
The experienced Jiang Baimian didn’t choke, raised his eyebrows and said:
“What we have harvested is very important information. Give me a reason to sell it to you.” “
Focas has long thought about this issue, and said in a slow or slow voice:
“Money and materials shouldn’t be of much value to you.” “
Who said this? We haven’t been so short of money until recently, but even so, it’s still six thousand Olei Terrence, three-fifths of Xiaohong… Jiang Baimian slandered in his heart.
Of course, the “Old Tune Team” is essentially a team that pursues more ideals, because its team leader Jiang Baimian and important member Shang Jianyao are idealists.
“I can provide remuneration in two ways:
“One, you should do something next, and I can give you the necessary help. I know that in your opinion, this is just a non-binding promise, but as long as you understand my past, you should be clear that all the promises I made have been fulfilled and not once violated.
“Second, I will give you two pieces of information, which will affect your safety in the future.”
Jiang Baimian listened quietly and smiled nonchalantly:
“Aren’t you afraid that we will give you false information?”
“I choose to meet and communicate. There is not only one way to talk to you.” Focas slightly raised his chin and said, “I have enough ability to ensure the authenticity of the information. Believe me, you can talk to me on such an equal basis because I don’t want to Make things bigger.”
“Yes, a general suddenly died suddenly and entered the tomb. It is indeed a major event.” Shang Jianyao was never weaker than others.
This is similar to “hanging yourself and doing big things”.
While Focas’s eyes were slightly narrowed, Jiang Baimian suddenly smiled and said:
She promised so easily that Focas didn’t react.
Immediately afterwards, Jiang Baimian added another sentence:
“But one more condition must be added, six thousand Olei.”
Six thousand Olei? When Focas heard the first half of the sentence, he was already focused and prepared to evaluate the other party’s request, but the condition only made him feel absurd.
This is like when trading nuclear warheads and other strategic weapons, the seller, in addition to a large amount of arms, oil, batteries, food, and other conditions, also put forward a request for “a set”, or he successfully obtained 10% after bargaining. Ole discounts.
“Yes, I will put it on Ugo.” The sense of absurdity did not affect Focas’s judgment, and he quickly agreed.
Jiang Baimian didn’t hide it, and told him all the information he had received from Marcus, including the passcode “Messiah.”
“Very good.” Focas nodded in satisfaction, “My two pieces of information are: First, the’Hand of Order’ is about to lock your identities; second, in addition to the’Hand of Order’, there are some forces looking for You, there are many of them that even I feel dangerous. I suggest that you go out less recently, and you rarely see people.”
So fast… Jiang Baimian nodded lightly and asked another question:
“Why don’t you kill the first city? Drop Marcus and Avia, and bury those secrets completely?”
“That would lead to worse results.” Focas answered rather vaguely.
After speaking, he slowly got up and said:
“When you need help, you know where you can find me.”
Retrieving the computer, on the way to the safe house, after listening to the group leader’s
words Long Yuehong blurted out in consternation: ” You, you really sold the information?
“Don’t you ask the company’s opinion?” “
The importance of this information is that it can be on the board of directors.
Jiang Baimian chuckled:
“The company has not forbidden us to sell this information. “
Then, she put away a smile, education Stern said:
” things on the outside, the situation is constantly changing, how can everything consult the company? And it’s too late.
“As long as the company doesn’t explain in advance what it can’t do, we don’t have to be too shy.
“Besides, in a dangerous place, the follow-up situation is unpredictable, and there is only one helper. “
White Morning follow nodded:
” Whether it is A Weiya, or mound of earth in clandestine laboratories in 13 sites, are very dangerous, let them lead the charge, trip times mine is not necessarily a bad thing. “
Have you heard?” This is not what I said, the black heart is Xiao Bai. The smile on Jiang Baimian’s face shows that she actually thinks the same way.
After joking, she said “um”:
“After I go back, I will sort out all the details to see where there are hidden dangers that leak our current safe house. “
Red Wolf District, 19 Rosta Street, “Hand of Order” headquarters.
The progress of the matter exceeded the expectations of Wall, Theodore, Constance and others. “True” identity was placed in front of them.
Xue Shiyue, Zhang Qubing, Qian Bai, Gu Zhiyong…”
“Except for Qian Bai, the earliest missions of others were recorded in Yecao City. Last year… this shows that they should have come from some big power.” “During
communication with each other, Wall’s eyes suddenly froze:
Xue Shiyue and Zhang Qubing’s team unexpectedly accepted the task of arresting themselves!
