Thomas found Dragon Head’s strategy of dealing with him both funny and annoying in how it was really straightforward. However, Thomas seemed to really be in trouble.
He knew that the corpse of Peter would have been tampered with, and the evidence found together with the pre-arranged witness would point to him. With only Pisces standing at his side, the judiciary would not recognize his words.
Hence, Thomas was certainly going to be jailed, but was unlikely to face the death penalty.
If the authorities took their time and investigated the matter thoroughly, the truth would be eventually revealed. But the problem was, how long would it take?
By the time the truth was revealed and Thomas was released, the entire Celandine City would be under the control of Dragon Head. Then everything would be too late.
Dragon Head’s strategy was nasty!
Thomas gave a thumbs up, “I’m impressed, I’m really impressed. If not, Dragon Head, how would you be the brains behind the Emperor of Luck, as well as the smartest man? This was really a brilliant strategy.”
Dragon Head stood up. “Let’s just skip those words of praise. Thomas, we will meet inside the police station.”
“Wait…” Thomas suddenly called out to Dragon Head, poured a cup of tea unhurriedly, took a sip, and said lightly, “There is someone who wants to meet with you…”
“Who is that?”
“You’ll know when you see him.”
While saying that, Thomas glanced at Pisces.
Pisces then turned on a laptop and placed it on the stone table of the octagonal pavilion.
The webcam was turned on.
A man’s face appeared on the computer screen, and he was someone Dragon Head was all too familiar with.
He was Thomas!
Dragon Head was shocked. ‘What is going on here?’
Why did Thomas appear on the screen when the connection was made on the spot?
Was Thomas not just seated opposite of him?
His mind was confused.
Thomas, who was on the screen, said, “Dragon Head, your strategy is really cruel as always, but unfortunately, you made one mistake. My first thought when I received your request for peace talks was that you were going to set me up again. But I couldn’t figure out how you’d go about screwing me over…”
“Only when we meet would I know what you were really up to. But if I have already met you and know what method you use, will I still be able to escape successfully? I’m afraid that with your ability, it will be very difficult for me to escape. So, after thinking about it, I just had to leave matters to my men and use the same method I used last time to deal with Bamboo Pole again…”
“And it just so happened, Dragon Head, that you used the same method to implicate others last time. We are thinking the same thing.”
‘What?’ Dragon Head looked up at the person sitting across from him with a dumbfounded expression.
He was not Thomas?
Indeed, that person was not Thomas.
The man uncovered his human skin mask, revealing his true identity.
He was Aquarius!
This was his second time disguised as Thomas. He duped Bamboo Pole the last time, and he duped Dragon Head this time.
Aquarius could not help but laugh and said, “Dragon Head, you think you are the only one who does the same thing twice? We will do the same too. You used the dead body twice in a row to plant evidence, and you think we won’t continue in a row to be fake and lure you into the game?”
Pisces continued, “Let me tell you the truth. For the past two days, the commander-in-chief has been staying inside the police station and never left the premises. Aquarius has always been the one getting things done outside. So, Dragon Head, your perfectly planned plan has failed!”
“Your efforts to get this dead body are simply useless. How could our commander-in-chief, who has never left the police station and has a perfect alibi, have run out of the station and murdered Peter half an hour ago? Dragon Head, you have been defeated!”
After hearing what Aquarius and Pieces said, Dragon Head stumbled and did not stand firmly, almost falling down the staircase.
He was so angry.
He thought he would make Thomas fall into the same
trap twice, but who knew he would end up being the
one falling into the same trap twice?
It was ridiculous.
Instead of trapping Thomas, he ended up trapping
“Thomas! Bastard! ”
Dragon Head yelled angrily and stepped forward to smash the computer.
But Pisces said coldly, “Instead of venting your anger here, why don’t you think about how to deal with the current situation? Dragon Head, what you just said has been recorded and handed over to the police. You used the corpse to plant evidence and frame the commander-in-chief. I’m afraid you will have to spend years in prison, right?”
As he spoke, they heard a siren.
Pisces said, ”Listen, the police car has arrived.”
Dragon Head gritted his teeth and said, “You all, bunch of bastards, remember this. If this matter is not over today, I will come back to settle it with you all!”
He did not care about Peter’s corpse anymore. He just turned around and left.
Pisces and Aquarius looked at each other and nodded at the same time. Both of them blocked Dragon Head’s route of departure, with one on the left side and another one on the right.
“You want to just walk away like this? Is it that easy?”
“Dragon Head, it’s impossible for you to escape today!”
Although Aquarius and Pisces were not primarily responsible for combat in the Twelve Golden Zodiacs. One of them was responsible for strategy and the other one was responsible for logistic support. They were both more ‘diplomatic’ types. They were, however, still part of the Twelve Golden Zodiacs. In comparison to ordinary humans, their battle strength was significantly greater.
There was no way for regular people to escape when they worked together.
The question was, was Dragon Head an ordinary person?
Looking at the two of them, Dragon Head sneered, “With just you two losers, you want to block my way? Have you heard of a proverb? Overextending oneself and overestimating one’s ability will lead to failure!”
