Before they fell asleep, there was a knock on the rest cabin door. The knock sounded unhurried and courteous.
Panther immediately stood on alert. Although he entered the middle floor normally, Philip did not, so he could be regarded as a smuggled immigrant.
Philip also sat upright. Although he did not know who the visitor was, it should be related to the previous incident. After all, looking at Panther’s expression, it was obviously not someone he knew.
Philip was all the more unknown on the middle floor so this result was easy to judge. However, they were now stuck in this rest cabin, almost impossible to up and leave.
Philip said to Panther, “Open the door. I think they’re here for the incident earlier.”
Panther stared at Philip grimly without speaking. However, he knew how troublesome this matter was. If Philip’s identity was found out, he would be implicated too.
“If I didn’t speak later, don’t say a word either. Don’t let the cat out of the bag.”
Panther glanced at Philip worriedly before he got up, walked over, and opened the rest cabin door.
Several people stood outside the door wearing simple armor of the same style, obviously belonging to the same place.
Seeing the door open, they asked Panther very respectfully, “May I know if the person who took care of Mr. Cusack is staying here?”
They asked without beating around the bush.
Panther frowned. He had prepared many excuses and had even thought of how to explain Philip’s background. He never expected that these people would directly ask him if the person who took care of Mr. Cusack was here.
It was simply beyond his expectation.
He could not help but glance back at Philip and nod subconsciously. This unconscious action also answered those people’s question.
Philip got up and approached them. Those people smiled when they saw Philip.
“Hello, we’re from the Draco Corps, and we would like to ask you to come with us and tell us about the Square Cage in detail. Is it convenient for you now?”
These people from the Draco Corps spoke very politely, which Philip did not expect. Moreover, they were completely different from the guards before.
The guards just now were so arrogant and domineering, but these people were really polite by contrast.
This was the rule of this world. The tougher the fist, the more respect one would earn. However, just as Philip was about to speak, he found Panther winking at him.
The words almost left Panther’s mouth, telling Philip not to go with them.
Nonetheless, they were stuck between a rock and a hard place, so Panther said, “Can we do this? We’re a little tired today. Can we go to the Draco Corps tomorrow instead?”
Panther was anxious and interrupted.
The guards looked at him.
One of the Draco Corps narrowed his eyes at Panther and said, “It seems that this gentleman is inconvenient.”
Seeing that Panther had made a blunder, Philip snorted coldly, “Whatever. Since you want me to go, let’s go, but don’t waste too much of my time.”
After Philip finished speaking, he walked out first.
