Julian entered the lion’s den and found the remaining members of the Red Scorpion Terrorist Group that Woody had hired. To make sure he and Fidel were safe, he plotted a lot of routes and hired some local mercenary groups.
One had to know that Julian and Fidel were staying in the bustling city. Most people would not dare to cause trouble here, but the terrorist group truly lived up to its name. They bought large-caliber lethal weapons without any fear. They had no regard for the citizen’s safety. They fired recklessly and caused huge panic in Qari.
“Where were you hiding these two days?” Jasper asked.
“The boss of Red Star Media, Darry, provided us with accommodation. We’re safe for now,” Julian answered.
Jasper was finally slightly at ease. “Right, Rowan’s uncle is in Qari. If you encounter danger, I can ask him to help you.”
However, Julian rejected Jasper’s proposal.
“It’s fine, Jasper. If we let a third party interfere, our previous efforts will have been in vain. Don’t worry, Jasper. I know what I’m doing and I will make sure I complete the mission.”
Jasper stayed silent for a while, but he trusted Julian. “You have to take care.”
After he hung up, Jasper lifted his head to look in the northwest direction. It was as if he could see the desert of the Eastern Central Region.
In Qari, Julian had been hiding in an abandoned residence this whole time.
Darry found this place for him. This place was connected to a warehouse that Darry had rented. Since no one was staying in this abandoned residence, no one would suspect this place.
Julian looked outside vigilantly. Suddenly, he heard a short knock on the door. He was immediately alert as he went to the door.
Thankfully, the knock followed a rhythmic code and Julian finally opened the door.
Darry had a lot of food in his hands and he handed them to Julian from outside.
“How’s the situation out there?” Julian asked.
“It’s still grim…”
Darry still had an unpleasant look on his face after hearing what Julian said.
“Even though the terrorists have stopped attacking, the people in the city are still in a panic. The streets are empty in the morning. No one dares to come out.”
Julian sighed helplessly. He recalled the citizens that died a few days ago because of him.
“That guy shot and killed so many citizens with his people. Is no one in Qari going to do anything?”
“This situation is very complicated. It’s not that easy to trackle. However, troops are being dispatched to suppress the riot… But… There is still some good news,” Darry answered.
“What do you mean? Will this turn for the better?” Julian asked immediately.
Darry handed Julian a faxed document.
After Julian read it, he asked, “Who are The Eagles?”
“They are Red Scorpion’s old nemesis. The Eagles helped with eliminating Red Scorpions back then.”
Darry told Julian back then, Red Scorpion and The Eagles were two popular terrorist groups. The two were always in conflict and toward the end, The Eagles got someone else to do their dirty work.
They sent important locations like Red Scorpion’s hiding spot and lair to the United States and the United Kingdom.
These countries despised these terrorists to the bones. With the information, Red Scorpion was eventually eliminated, but The Eagles were also chased down by the two big nations.
The Eagles terrorist group was broken up and its leader was still nowhere to be seen.
