Chapter 391: What Did Someone Else’s Death Have to Do with Him?
Jian Qi smiled. “Don’t worry. Even if I die, I won’t come looking for you!”
“Tell me, how should I contact you?” Norman asked.
Norman could not afford to spend too much time here. Otherwise, once the others completed their tasks and came looking over here, it would be difficult for him to take care of the item in his possession.
“I’ll contact you!” Jian Qi answered.
Norman frowned. From what Jian Qi said, Norman wondered if it meant she was very attentive or if it was because she knew him very well.
Due to the rain which had become increasingly heavier, Norman could not see Jian Qi’s facial expression clearly. Therefore, there was no way he could judge accurately from what she said.
“Alright. If there’s nothing else, may I leave now?” Norman looked at her with a serious expression on his face.
Jian Qi’s gaze landed on the backpack in his hand. “I’m just curious. What’s that in your hand?”
Since the dead mercenary would rather run away with this thing than save his partner, Jian Qi suspected there was clearly something wrong with this object.
Moreover, Norman had clearly been sent to carry out this mission on his own. The rest of the special agents had no clue at all.
Meanwhile, Norman subconsciously held onto the backpack even tighter. “Do you intend to take this away?” He looked at Jian Qi warily.
Jian Qi smiled. “I’m genuinely curious!”
Although Jian Qi sounded indifferent, Norman had a cautious look in his eyes.
After all, Jian Qi’s appearance had been far too coincidental.
Sometimes, coincidences were most likely planned.
At first, Norman had already decided to drop his gun and leave. However, right then, he had no choice but to raise his gun and point it at Jian Qi yet again.
“You’re actually here for this, aren’t you?” Norman stared at her suspiciously.
Jian Qi laughed devilishly. “Indeed, your have an unusually strong sense of paranoia!”
As soon as Jian Qi finished speaking, the two of them heard the sound of something ticking.
They were clearly stunned for a moment.
Jian Qi laughed half-heartedly. “It seems like you won’t be able to leave with this thing after all!”
As Norman’s facial expression turned gloomy, he very quickly unzipped the backpack.
There was a wooden box inside the backpack. However, it was secured with a passcode.
The ticking sound came from within the wooden box.
After taking a glance at it, Jian Qi warned him calmly, “I hope you can live!”
Right after Jian Qi spoke, she turned around and began running away hastily.
At the same time, Norman frightfully tossed the box in the opposite direction before running off in a different direction. In less than ten seconds after the two of them had run off, the wooden box, which had fallen to the ground, directly exploded.
The sound of an enormous explosion could be heard as a bright flame lit up the sky.
As the flame engulfed the surrounding trees, the fire began to spread instantly. From the looks of things, even the pouring rain would not be able to suppress this explosion and the large fire which came with it.
After a moment, Norman picked himself up off the ground. With a shake of his head, he began to recollect himself.
Although he ran very quickly to dodge the explosion, his back was still burnt slightly due to the large area affected.
When Norman looked at the mercenary’s body, which was flat on the ground not too far away, he saw that it had been set ablaze.
After frowning momentarily, he looked in the direction Jian Qi had run off to.
He wondered if that girl was alright.
However, his mouth twitched as the thought occurred. What did someone else’s death have to do with him?
Besides, she would end up dying sooner or later if she went on to provoke the anti-terrorism organization. It would be a less torturous ordeal if she were to die right now.
After Norman retracted his gaze, he turned around and left directly.
After all, the loud explosion would have drawn some attention. Someone would undoubtedly come over later.
