“The Eagles had been staying silent for about ten years. So, it’s good news that they are showing up now,” Julian said slowly.
Then, he approached Fidel and whispered, “I’ll get going now. You should stay here. After all, you’re still Jasper to outsiders, so you can’t show your face right now.”
“Where are you doing?” Fidel asked.
“Don’t worry. I’m going to take action myself. It’s inconvenient to bring you along so you should stay here and wait for me.”
Julian promised Fidel that Darry would send him food. However, he had to continue this act.
Shortly after, Julian walked out of the cave and followed Darry into the car secretly.
Darry drove the car to an alley with no one else around.
“A lot of people sell arms inside there. You must be careful.”
This was all Darry could do. Since firearms were involved, his actions were limited.
Julian nodded and walked into the deepest part of the alley in the depths of the night.
After entering, Julian found a lively market hidden inside. All kinds of things were sold here. It seemed like a night market that could be found in Somerland. The people here would make a living by selling arms, so none of them were easy-going people.
After looking around for a long time, Julian noticed a lot of the firearms here were high caliber weapons. They were great for a team, but it was not suitable for Julian, who worked alone.
He hoped he could find a sniper rifle here, but he did not find any until now.
“Hmm? What’s this?”
Even though he did not find a sniper rifle, he found an 8x sniper scope. No matter where it came from, Julian bought it the moment he saw it. Then, he looked around for a long time before noticing a few locals carrying self-made crossbow arrows.
Julian talked to them and they told him this was a poisonous crossbow arrow made by the locals with rattlesnake venom.
Normally, only the poor people who could not afford weapons would use them. However, occasionally, they would achieve unexpected results as well.
“Unexpected results? Isn’t this what I want?”
In the end, Julian bought a crossbow and 18 poisonous arrows from a local at a high price.
The other party told Julian courteously that it would be hard for him to replace the 18 arrows if he used all of them. Julian answered he understood. After all, the arrows required rattlesnake venom, so it would be hard for a normal person to find it.
After everything was done, Julian left the market to head to the mercenary‘s market. This time, Julian was not here to hire someone. Instead, he wanted to gather more information.
The moment he entered, a lot of people started ignoring him.
Because of Julian, a lot of local mercenaries died unnatural deaths, so now, they saw Julian as the grim reaper’s target.
Under normal circumstances, no one would be willing to take Julian’s contract no matter how much he was willing to pay.
Julian ignored those and went to the boss.
“What are you doing here? Didn’t you see how many people are not welcoming you here?”
Julian nodded and insisted, “I’m not hiring anyone. No one wants to work for me anyway. I need information.“
Upon hearing this, the boss asked, “I’m giving you one chance. Tell me, what information do you want?”
“I want detailed information about The Eagles and Red Scorpion, including the exact time The Eagles will arrive.”
The boss removed his sunglasses and stared at Julian deeply with his eyes that were as deep as a hawk’s for a long time. Then, he said with a smile, “You got balls. The things you want are here.”
