Chapter 265: Danger (Part one)
Xu Cheng said to Haber, “But Mr. Haber, can I trouble you to bring these two friends of mine with you? Just give me the satellite coordinates of your address, and I will bring the package to you.”
Haber: “Absolutely. I will guarantee your friends’ safety.”
Bei Shan pulled Xu Cheng to the side and said in a deep voice, “What are you doing? Do you know that it’s not the same as Shangcheng here? They all have guns! How many lives do you have to lose?”
He was obviously nervous and worried. Xu Cheng was favored by the Dragon Division master and would one day take the throne, and Bei Shan was acting more like a bodyguard than someone who gives out missions by following him around. One thing was to sharpen his skills, and another reason was to stop him from doing things that would get himself killed.
“Senior Brother, I don’t have much time. After tonight ends, we still need to go to Las Vegas which will take another day, and then the day after that is the birthday banquet. If my money doesn’t arrive on time, then the Lin Corporation might be forced into an arranged marriage.”
Bei Shan: “It’s just a woman.”
In his heart, Xu Cheng’s safety was what was most important, because Xu Cheng was the successor to the Dragon Division leader position! As a bodyguard, it was his duty to protect the future candidate.
Xu Cheng said, “I still remember what the old man told me, love the Dragon Division just like loving my own woman. If I was no longer loyal to my wife, do you think I would be a qualified Dragon Blade?”
Bei Shan’s hands on Xu Cheng’s collar gradually came down. He said softly, “Then I will be your backup.”
Xu Cheng nodded.
As long as Bei Shan wasn’t carrying the artifacts, probably no one would suspect that they were together. These people just wanted to secure the artifacts, so they would only target whoever was in their way. If it was Xu Cheng carrying those artifacts, he would be their only target.
Xu Cheng walked to Lin Lei and whispered in his ear, “In my room, there’s a crown replica of Napoleon III. Find a way to give it to the Third Prince. It’s best if you can send it to him right in the morning. Just act like you are sucking up to him and give him the hint that the Queen had wanted it for a long time. With his situation, he would definitely take it and give it as a gift. After that’s done, I will wait for you in Las Vegas.”
Lin Lei nodded and then looked at Xu Cheng and said, “Brother-in-Law, you are going to be fine, right?”
Xu Cheng nodded. “Don’t worry.”
Then, Haber gestured at his two bodyguards to have them lead the way, and Lin Lei went with them.
Then, Xu Cheng carried that big bag and went out of the hotel. Bei Shan pretended to be a passerby and slowly followed behind.
Before Xu Cheng even walked a few hundred meters, an armed pickup truck blocked his path.
In the car, a black man carrying a big rifle smoked his cigar as he smiled deviously at Xu Cheng. “Asian guy? What are you doing in the black market?”
Xu Cheng: “Trade.”
The black man: “Sorry, can you open that bag you are carrying for me?”
Seeing that there were seven armed men on the car, he said, “You guys planning to rob me in the city? Wouldn’t that be a violation of the rules?”
The black man laughed, “Rules? Indeed, there are rules, but the rules are set by us. Allow me to introduce myself, we are men of the Sonora Family. To answer a favor asked of us, we can let you just leave if you leave your goods.”
Xu Cheng: “Then what if I don’t?”
Instantly, all seven guns were pointed at Xu Cheng.
