“You mean you’re going to leave him be?” The man’s face darkened.
“Of course not. I would prefer that you collate all of that person’s information before selecting the slipup to make your move.”
“Slipup? That’s easier said than done. He is very vigilant; he will never allow himself to lag behind and become vulnerable.” ♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 64 is hosted at ZHAN LAN TRANSLATIONS♢
“That’s why you need to be very prepared and be more patient than him. Even though there was another underworld organisation that covered for us this time, they don’t know that we do not belong in their organisation. But we have already made ourselves known and alerted the enemies; I’m afraid the enemies will only up their defence in the future to come. The fact that you guys didn’t even manage to find out who the bodyguards around him was told me that your intel isn’t perfect. Therefore, I hope the intel department can collate all the necessary information before sending the action department down for mission.” Zhuo Xiao Xuan analysed blandly. As long as Z organisation had no intentions of making moves at Gao Zheng Ye, she would be able to make use of this period of time to tend to her wounds properly before clashing once again in a battle that would determine their life and death with You Mind.
The man lowered his head, contemplating for a moment before he rose his head and told Zhuo Xiao Xuan: “You should return. I will notify you again when there’s news.”
After exiting from the intel department, Zhuo Xiao Xuan returned to the Zhuo Mansion, wrote the words “left the house, don’t look for me” on a paper to stick it on her door before locking it behind her and sitting down crossed-legged to cultivate to tend to her injuries. She cultivated an entire night; she went to the kitchen to look for anything suitable to fill her stomach once she was hungry.
She only received the notice to move out on the fifth day. After preparing her things, she switched on her computer and sent out the email she’d written in the past few days before carrying her bag and leaving the mansion.
After pulling five consecutive all-nighters continuously scavenging for information, the intel department confirmed that Gao Zheng Ye would reach the northwest frontier zone to meet up with the arms dealer. Other than Z organisation’s Sniper team, the SF was also mobilised. Z organisation however was an private organisation, other than the few state leaders in charge, none other knew of their existence. Hence the SF didn’t know that there were people from the Z organisation getting involved. Z organisation adopted a we-each-settle-our-own-shit perspective; they also found that having the SF on their side made the situation more favourable. Not only was it misleading, it also made it possible to hide their own existence. On top of that, there was someone who’d settle clearing out their target’s lackeys and recovering the stolen firearms; the only role Z organisation needed to play in this was to finish off the boss of that organisation.
The action department sent out two members of their party–Zhuo Xiao Xuan and another male she’d never seen before. Even if they had met before, they wouldn’t recognise each for they went on missions either lathered with thick layers of makeup or wear a face mask that covered everything save for the eyes.
The two of them silently boarded the plane, not speaking. Zhuo Xiao Xuan rubbed her handgun in boredom, her mind drifting to Yin Xu Dong over in City B. She wondered how he would react after receiving her email?
Yin Xu Dong opened his email and checked the email he’d just received. The sender was anonymous. At that, he clicked it open in suspicion. ♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 64 is hosted at ZHAN LAN TRANSLATIONS♢
“If I make it back, let’s get married.” IAAK IS HOSTED @ ZHANLAN TL
The content was short and random. He wondered if it was someone who emailed him wrongly, or if it was some sort of game. Another possibly suddenly appeared in his head; it couldn’t be from Xuan Xuan, could it? He read the message again, marry? Yin Xu Dong looked at the word, his face flushing slightly. Wasn’t it a little too early? He’d just entered college, they haven’t even hit the legal age to get married. And shouldn’t matters about marriage and the likes be figured out after one graduated from college? He grinned foolishly and reread the email. The sentence was a little strange, make it back, make it back… his face immediately paled. She definitely went on a very dangerous mission, else she wouldn’t phrase it that way! Didn’t he tell her to run if she met with danger? She’d agreed on that with him! Look at this now, she’s sending herself in the direction of a gun nozzle before her wounds even healed properly!
Yin Xu Dong was furious but terribly worried. The layers of emotions had him very uneasy; he gripped his collar and paced up and down his house. His anxiety affected Ke Ke, the golden retriever lying on the floor. It stood and pounced in the direction of Yin Xu Dong. The golden retriever was a grown dog now so the strength of that pounce wasn’t light. Yin Xu Dong was pushed onto the sofa by the golden retriever; the dog stuck out its tongue and licked his face. Yin Xu Dong pushed Ke Ke away, grumbling: “What the heck are you licking for! This mister I’m boiling! Move it and go lick your own fur!”
Ke Ke the golden retriever felt very wronged. It whined as it shifted from him and returned to curling on the ground, before raising its eyes and looking at Yin Xu Dong pacing around nervously.
The helicopter brought Zhuo Xiao Xuan and company to an empty space in a city near the northwest frontier, placed them down before flying off. Zhuo Xiao Xuan switched to boarding a jeep into the woodland in the outskirts. As the two of them walked in the snow, sweeping the snow behind them to cover their footprints, Zhuo Xiao Xuan said to the man when they were about to receive information on the location where Gao Zheng Ye was meeting up with the arms dealer: “I will lure the bodyguard beside Gao Zheng Ye away; you handle Gao Zheng Ye. Remember to only make your move at Gao Zheng Ye after I lure the bodyguard away.”
“Okay.” The man agreed quickly without comments.
The two of them each selected a location to hide before tugging a white piece of material over themselves as they laid on their bellies on the snow, revealing only a tiny crack to survey the situation outside. ♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 64 is hosted at ZHAN LAN TRANSLATIONS♢
The two of them knew that the state’s SF would be coming so they selected their location to conceal themselves with utmost care. After eliminating all the prime locations to ambush someone, they slowly inched forward and picked out the ambush-able locations to prevent clashing into them. It was fine for them as they knew the people were from SF. The SF however wouldn’t know who they were, so they might just finish the two of them off as though they were the enemies the moment they saw them. To prevent unnecessary trouble, they tried their best to evade all the locations where they could bump into the SF. Not long after they laid in ambush, another batch of people came before splitting up to lie in wait. The two of them could tell that they were the SF the state sent from their attire.
After a long period of time, a soft male voice sounded in Zhuo Xiao Xuan’s earpiece. “They’re here.”
They were able to hear the sounds of vehicles in the distance in the quiet woodland. Zhuo Xiao Xuan looked in the direction of the sound from the crack, catching sight of a few jeeps travelling in this direction.
Zhuo Xiao Xuan carefully exercised her limbs frozen from the prolonged lying in the snow; she stretched her fingers one by one, fisting them again before repeating the process. A few jeeps drove over from the other side of the mountain road as she did so. There were people standing on both sides of the jeep; both of them were holding a machine rifle each as they surveyed the surroundings, alert. ♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 64 is hosted at ZHAN LAN TRANSLATIONS♢
Their ambush point was a little far. It was hard for them to see on top of the reflection by the snow. However, they weren’t able to retrieve their telescope to look as the reflection by the lens would reveal their position.
Fortunately, Zhuo Xiao Xuan was someone who cultivated; she had sharp hearing and sight, so she was able to make out the person who appeared first was the firearms dealer who was supplying Gao Zheng Ye foreign firearms. The batch that arrived later was Gao Zheng Ye and company.
Their vehicle was parked on an empty ground. Both of them alighted from their vehicles. Gao Zheng Ye, flanked by his bodyguards, greeted the other person and shook his hand. Both of them signalled for their bodyguards to raise their alertness before they started discussing their terms.
Naturally, Zhuo Xiao Xuan spotted You Ming who was standing beside Gao Zheng Ye. She inhaled deeply to smother the burning rage in her chest that ignited when she saw him. She must remain calm! She buried her entire face into the snow, trying to suppress the surging anger with the burning chill of the snow.
She and her Sniper Team member was waiting, waiting for the SF team to break the silence before the storm. Once the SF moved, they would be able to move.
When Gao Zheng Ye and the firearms dealer boss was getting into a dispute, the SF soldiers buried in their ambush just a little ahead of Zhuo Xiao Xuan aimed their sniper rifle at the two of them and shot.
The load of people froze before immediately reacting. They rushed to cover their heads and scattered to look for places to hide at. Some picked up their guns and retaliated. Pity the majority of the arms they had were machine rifles; the shooting distance wasn’t as far as that of a sniper rifle. The SF soldier were also well hidden in the snow so it was hard to locate them as well. They only discovered this issue after shooting for a while. At that, they stopped and resorted to hiding. As long as they don’t appear, they wouldn’t be discovered, so you can’t do anything ‘bout it even if you’ve got a sniper rifle.
The SF soldiers too realised their sniping wasn’t very useful, and so, both sides ended up in a deadlock; I won’t move if my enemies didn’t move. And so, the battle of patience drew open between two parties.
After dragging the time, Gao Zheng Ye and the firearms arms dealer—as though having agreed on something—started rushing for their vehicles madly as though they’d given up on their deal this time and decided to make it out alive before anything else.
When the bunch of them were dashing for their vehicles, the SF soldiers, owing to their small numbers, weren’t able to shoot them all. And so, they gave up on the sniper attacks, pulled off the camouflage material on them and dashed in their direction armed with their machine rifles.
Zhuo Xiao Xuan and her comrade shouted lowly: “Move out!” At that, they pulled the camouflage material off. If the SF soldier rushing ahead turned behind them to look, they’d get a scare themselves as there were actually more people behind him. If the people behind them had been their enemies, and had a little more number of people, the batch of SF support would be sacrificed here today.
Zhuo Xiao Xuan rounded the SF soldiers ahead of them and quietly circled over to behind Gao Zheng Ye. The man found an appropriate location and set up his sniper stand, laid on the ground and looked through his scope in search for Gao Zheng Ye’s figure.
Zhuo Xiao Xuan following tightly behind him however speedily covered him in the camouflage material from previously. To prevent him from being discovered, she leapt off the snowy hill, sliding down lightly on the snow.
When her feet touched the ground, she shouted at You Ming among the bunch of people not far off: “I am unparalleled—supreme!” ♢ I AM A KILLER, CHAPTER 64 is hosted at ZHAN LAN TRANSLATIONS♢
The bunch of people, including the frozen You Ming, with their backs to her immediately turned around in shock to look at her.
Upon hearing her shout, the man on the hill, before he could even begin reprimanding her of her location-revealing action, was struck crispy by her embarrassing words, the heck! D’you think you’re some beautiful warrior? You even have a code phrase when you go to battle—I shall exterminate you in the name of the moon*? And the poop was “I am unparalleled”? The heck was “supreme”? Don’t you think you’re too impudent and overestimating yourself a little too much?
