815 Nightly Visitation

    "Well... Han Tianyu is back in Beijing. He's... He's handling some matters with the government. He will not be back tonight," said Qin Tian, averting his eyes to the side for a brief moment before looking back at Jiang Fei.

    Qin Tian had been a military man for some good years of his life, he was trained to not show his emotions to the outside world. Although Jiang Fei might not pick up his lies from the looks of his expression, he could not lie in front of Ariel!

    "He's lying!" Ariel telepathically told Jiang Fei.

    At that moment, Jiang Fei flinched a little. Even if Ariel said the man was a raging homosexual, Jiang Fei would believe it, word for word. When Jiang Fei learned that Qin Tian was lying through his teeth, the suspicions that were already growing in his heart, inflated massively.

    Jiang Fei nodded to Qin Tian and turned away. Quietly, without drawing any suspicion, he said, "0541, scanned this entire base!"

    "Yes, sir," 0541 replied and actively scanned the entire base for everything.

    Jiang Fei stopped walking as he reached the door and turned.

    "I'll take my leave now since Han Tianyu isn't here. My parting words for you is to hope that the problem with reinforcement could be resolved as soon as possible."

    "Absolutely! At once, Mr. Jiang. On an unrelated note, are you going back to Japan?" said Qin Tian with a smile. Even though he could sense that Jiang Fei might have picked up something, he was confident that Jiang Fei could never look through his lies. The boy was barely out of his mother's womb and to someone like Qin Tian, an army veteran, Jiang Fei could never understand the art of psychological manipulation. Jiang Fei was just a greenhorn from his perspective.

    "Not yet. I might need to visit my master first!" said Jiang Fei, looking dead into Qin Tian's eyes before turning away and leave.

    "I'll leave you to it then," said Qin Tian as he turned and walked away. The objective of the military force was to weaken the martial artists by reducing their living members. It matters not whether Jiang Fei would be in Japan. After all, he was just a man. Alone, he could never jeopardize their mission.

    "Captain, I have collected the results of the scan. Of all the things I've detected, there is one that stands out," said 0541 when Jiang Fei went out through the gate and away from the base.

    "What is it?"

    "There are two hundred Supreme Androids inside the base. Their energy readings have reached Advanced stage of Level 4 and even the Pinnacle stage of Level 4."

    "What the f*ck?!" Jiang Fei gasped in horror.

    "Their progress is too fast!" he cried. The speed of which the military had developed the Androids was greater than he had expected. He thought that the Androids were only at the Beginning stage of Level 4. At most, the only unexpected feature they had was their mass-production capabilities and their memory transfer systems. He had never expected the Android army to reach such a powerful stage.

    Worst of all, Jiang Fei did not know what limits that the Androids had to their power level. After all, 0541 had only scanned this base. God knows if the military had developed an Android with capabilities that reached Level 5!

    "How... How did they..."

    Jiang Fei was still baffled by the discovery. The news was too much for him to accept.

    "In that case, that means the military is about to do something drastic!" said Ariel.

    "I knew it!" said Jiang Fei, reinforcing his suspicion against the military. If nothing was done against it, the military would become stronger to the point where they would wage their own war against the Mutants. They were using this war between the martial artists and the Mutants to drastically weaken both sides. After that, the Androids would come and wipe both sides off!

    "I need to talk to Han Tianyu!" Jiang Fei grunted, frowning worriedly at the same time. There were too many questions that he needed Han Tianyu to answer.

    "0541, I'm going to call Han Tianyu via this communicator. Can you trace his location?" Jiang Fei asked.

    "Yes, I can."

    "I'm going to start the call now. Ping me if you have located his position!"

    Jiang Fei headed to a hidden place in the woods and called Han Tianyu.

    "What's up?" Han Tianyu greeted, his voice sounded tired.

    "I want to know about the military. What's going on with them?" said Jiang Fei.

    "They are having some trouble. I can't tell you what it is about but I'm discussing with the government about it now," said Han Tianyu, speaking from a scripted speech made by Qin Tian.

    "I heard that you're in Beijing now," said Jiang Fei.

    "That is right. I'm with General Han right now to discuss about the reinforcements," said Han Tianyu while Qin Tian was nodded satisfyingly at the side.

    "Captain, I've located Han Tianyu's position," 0541 reported in.

    "Alright. You do you, Brother Han. Please urge the military to send in the reinforcements!" said Jiang Fei. He had gotten what he wanted. There was no need for him to delay any further.

    "One of these days, you will regret what you have done to them!" Han Tianyu snarled at Qin Tian before he was escorted away by two Androids.


    "Where is Han Tianyu?" Jiang Fei pressed on.

    "Unexpectedly, he is located in the base where we came from," 0541 explained.

    "I knew it! I knew he was somewhere near!"

    "Did the man named Han Tianyu betrayed you?" said Ariel. Judging from the context, Ariel did not fully understand what was going on.

    "Unlikely. Han Tianyu knew my family. Above all, he is smart. He knows how strong I am. Knowing that, he wouldn't dream of betraying me. I think that he is being held hostage!" Jiang Fei exclaimed.

    Jiang Fei trusted Han Tianyu and if he wanted to betray him, Han Tianyu would not have let Jiang Fei walked away.

    Han Tianyu knew all the technology that Jiang Fei had. If he wanted to betray Jiang Fei, he would have captured Jiang Fei and forced him to surrender the alien tech via any means necessary. However, since his family was still safe at home, the military must have not known about his origin. In conclusion, Han Tianyu did not betray him and was held against his will.

    "Heh, guess we'll be playing a different game tonight," said Jiang Fei as he turned around, towards the base.

    "Mhm. You know that I'm with you. From now and always," said Ariel with a smile.

    "Thanks. We'll infiltrate during the night. Let's go and rest now," said Jiang Fei as he walked towards another location and rested.

    Time flowed exceptionally slow for Jiang Fei as he was anxious to make his move. When the sun set and the moon rose, Jiang Fei skipped playing Dawn Break and sneaked up closer to the base.

    "0541, stealth me!"

    "Aye, captain!"

    A surge of electricity zapped through Jiang Fei's body before turning him and Ariels invisible. There was no trace of the two of them. Not even their body odor. Not even thermal vision could find them! 0541 had completely removed them from the world.
