"It's within this area. However, I'm still searching for the exact location." Little Four was a little disheartened. There was no surveillance camera in the area where Liu Aijun and Little White were at, so he could only rely on the satellite to find out where they were.
"There is no need to be in a rush. Take it slow." Ling Lan sighed softly. She could only rely on Little Four now, unless if the earth element domain realm master appeared again.
Liu Furong sat in the shuttle and entered Planet Muyang's port. When he walked out of the shuttle, he saw fully armed soldiers from the government at the platform.
Liu Furong's heart dropped when he saw this. 'Did they found me?'
This was his first thought. However, he didn't get agitated. He just continued to walk calmly towards the platform.
Liu Furong knew that if he was really exposed, there was no way of him escaping. In that case, it was better for him to face the problem calmly and look for an opportunity to escape.
Another reason why he moved forward was because he wanted to know if the people important to him were safe or not.
The person-in-charge of this mission listened to his man reporting to him and his eyes lit up. He walked towards the man in a beard and smiled. "Liu Zhongguo?"
"Yes," Liu Furong replied calmly. The situation was not too bad. He was still Liu Zhongguo to the other party.
"Our prime minister will like to meet you." The person-in-charge revealed their motive.
Liu Furong pretended to be puzzled. "I'm sorry, I'm just an explorer. I don't know your prime minister." Liu Furong didn't want to take a risk without knowing what the situation was.
The person-in-charge was prepared for the rejection so he passed Liu Furong a photo. He smiled and said, "Do you recognize these two people?"
Wang Qi and Liu Aihua were looking at the camera fearfully. Liu Furong took the photo and frowned slightly. "I'm sorry, I don't know who they are."
He passed the photo back to the soldier. However, beneath his sleeve, his fist was clenched tightly.
Even if he hadn't seen these two people for almost six years, he still knew who they were in a single glance. One of them should be Wang Qi while the other was his daughter, Liu Aihua.
"Tsk tsk tsk. Mr. Liu, you are such a forgetful person. After five years, you can't even recognize your own child." The person-in-charge shook his head and said regretfully.
Liu Furong immediately snatched the photo over and took a look at it again. "My daughter?"
He appeared enlightened. Then, he grabbed the person's collar and said angrily, "If you harmed my daughter in any way, I will never let you go."
Liu Furong acted perfectly as a rash man who had just realized that something had happened to his daughter.
"Mr. Liu, you misunderstood us." The person-in-charge replied calmly, "Your daughter was reported missing so we are looking for her now. Just now, we noticed that you have entered Planet Muyang through our system so we wanted to ask for your cooperation in this matter. We guessed that your daughter is kidnapped and it might have something to do with your enemy."
The ambiguous sentence made Liu Furong narrowed his eyes.
"Fine. I'll leave with you." Liu Furong answered decisively. For the sake of his daughter and his benefactor's son, he must walk into the tiger's den.
Liu Furong entered the prepared hover car. The car moved at high speed towards the central government building of Planet Muyang.
At this moment, Ling Lan was in a hover taxi along with Aunt Liu and Wang Baozhuang. They reached the central government building of Planet Muyang too.
The government of planet Muyang didn't notice their actions. Little Four had altered all the footage on the surveillance cameras along the way. Those people that were following the Liu family and the Wang family had been lured to the mecha maintenance shop. They didn't know that Ling Lan and the other two people had left the small town secretly.
"The government of Planet Muyang? Jiang Hui, why did you bring us here?" Wang Baozhuang asked in surprised.
"If we have a problem, shouldn't we look for the government?" Ling Lan gave an ambiguous smile.
Aunt Liu nodded furiously when she heard this. She was caught off her guard just now so she forgot to call the police when she had realized that Aijun and Aihua were kidnapped. She should have done it long ago.
Wang Baozhuang gave a forced smile when he heard this. 'Can I tell them that they are entering their enemy's lair?' When Wang Qi and Liu Aihua were kidnapped, the first person he suspected was his powerful enemy. The government on planet Muyang was already taken over by his enemy.
Ling Lan sighed. The only people who didn't know the truth was Aunt Liu and her two children. When she looked at Aunt Liu's clear gaze, Ling Lan felt her hands itching. If Liu Furong appeared before her, she would definitely beat him until he was half dead.
'How can he bear to lie to such a pure-hearted lady?'
"Boss, Leader Liu is here." Little Four detected Ling Lan's emotions so he quickly reported this news to her.
Well, he wouldn't admit that he wanted to see his Boss beating Leader Liu up. No, he didn't.
Ling Lan smiled as she thought. 'It looks like even God can't bear to see this heinous act.'
Ling Lan turned around and said to Aunt Liu and Wang Baozhuang, "Let's go in." A good show was about to start.
After she finished speaking, she led the way and walked up the steps leading to the central government building. Aunt Liu followed her without any hesitation.
Wang Baozhuang looked at the huge building in front of him. He stomped his feet frustratingly and followed behind them.
For the sake of Wang Qi, he was willing to take any risk.
After entering the main hall of the building, Ling Lan chose the lift furthest away from the entrance. Ling Lan appeared so confident and natural that the workers on duty only took a glance at her before letting her off.
Aunt Liu came from a small town but she extremely worried about her children. Ling Lan's reminder just now made her think that they were really here to ask the government for help so she walked in without any signs of fear too.
As for Wang Baozhuang, the moment he entered the main hall, all his anxiety and worries just disappeared. He turned back to the old logistician from the 9th Wings Regiment who was able to keep calm in the face of all dangers and never made any mistakes in the last ten years of his career.
None of the three people attracted the suspicion of the workers on duty. They walked smoothly to the lift.
However, this lift couldn't be taken by a normal person. The moment Ling Lan stepped in, the person who was supposed to guard this area frowned. He wanted to step forward and question Ling Lan but before he could reach her, the detector of the lift scanned Ling Lan and the lift door opened automatically.
The person on duty quickly stopped in his tracks and gave a forced smile. 'It must be another descendant of an elite family with a special pass.' He thought. He shook his head and return to his original position. He didn't dare to offend such powerful people, as nothing good would come out of it.
And thus, Ling Lan smoothly entered the lift with them. The buttons only showed the levels above them. However, this couldn't stop the all mighty Little Four.
Ling Lan scanned the detector in the lift and the number '1' on the lift screen turned into '0'.
"Where did Liu Furong go?" Ling Lan asked.
Liu Furong was a step faster than them. He had already entered the building.
"Basement level five." Little Four didn't need Ling Lan to tell him what to do. He directly send Ling Lan to the basement level five.
When the number '-1', '-2' appeared on the screen, Wang Baozhuang's expression was suddenly filled with fear. He looked at Ling Lan with fear and vigilance.
The lift door opened and Ling Lan walked out. Aunt Liu wanted to follow her but Wang Baozhuang suddenly grabbed her and pressed the button to close the lift door.
However, the lift had no reaction. Wang Baozhuang looked at Ling Lan with a pale face. "Who are you?"
Only a person familiar with this place was able to use these pieces of equipment so smoothly. Ling Lan's actions caused Wang Baozhuang to suspect that she was on the same side as his enemy.
"I'm just a passer-by." Ling Lan replied calmly, "I have nothing to do with your enemy. I just happen to be a hacker too."
Ling Lan explained how she was able to do all these things. Wang Baozhuang was still suspicious of her but he knew that he was unable to leave this place without her. Hence, he had no choice but to walk out of the lift. Only Aunt Liu was confused. She didn't know why Wang Baozhuang was so agitated.
Liu Furong was brought into a secret room by the person-in-charge. The second he entered the room, he saw the prime minister drinking tea with the man called Mr. Yi.
When Mr. Yi saw Liu Furong, he smiled and guided Liu Furong to his seat.
Liu Furong's narrowed his eyes when he saw Mr. Yi. He didn't expect to see this person in this place. However, the appearance of this person destroyed all his hope. The safe place they took so much effort to create was really exposed.
Liu Furong stopped pretending. Just like how he was familiar with this person, this person understood him well too. He could fool other people but he wasn't able to fool this man.
"Long time no see." Mr. Yi saw Liu Furong sitting down and he got up to pour a cup of tea for him. He greeted Liu Furong as though they were old friends.
"Long time no see." Liu Furong raised his cup and jeered, "You are still the same, pretending to be cultured."
"Well, better than you who likes to hide like a coward," Mr. Yi wasn't affected.
"I want to know how you managed to find this place?" Liu Furong went directly to the main topic.
"Even ace hackers can't be perfect in deleting all traces of evidence. If something was done, there would be clues left behind. It was hard for our ace hackers to trace the clues back but they managed to do it after a long time." Mr. Yi explained how they were able to discover Planet Muyang.
"When we found Luo Yi, we found Wang Qi too. However, I didn't know that you will use another identity to protect them. You even married a local who had never seen the world and had children with her." Mr. Yi sighed. "Last time, all the Seven Stars of the North were arrogant and proud. Many exceptional female soldiers wanted to marry you but none of you cared about them. If they knew that they lost to a person from a primitive planet, they might vomit blood in anger."
"Oh wait, I forgot that no one wanted to marry Leader Liu. No wonder, you married a naive idiot from Planet Muyang." Mr. Yi made exaggerated expressions as he said this. He hated the Seven Stars of the North with a passion. In the past, he was always hidden under the shadows of the Seven Stars of the North.
"I didn't expect you to betray your regiment commander and your comrades so that you can achieve a higher status." Liu Furong's expression turned cold. "For the sake of your personal gain, you rather become a dog."
The Magic Ace Mecha Clan was a mecha clan that had 50 mecha teams. Liu Furong was the leader of team 19. Yi Hao was the leader of team 47. Yi Hao entered the Magic Ace Mecha Clan a few years after Liu Furong. However, his exceptional mecha piloting skills and his outstanding commanding ability allowed the regiment commander to make an exception and promote him to become a team leader. He was the youngest among all the team leaders. All the other team leaders treated him as their younger brother. None of them expected their most trusted younger brother to harm them and cause the annihilation of their entire mecha clan.
"Haha, Regiment Commander Wang was clearly aware of the situation. Since we were in the 3rd Division, we needed to follow the command of the 3rd Division." Yi Hao gave a cold smile. "Anyone who didn't listen to command would be killed mercilessly. Regiment Commander Wang knew this perfectly. That's why he passed the item to you and sacrificed the entire mecha clan in order to send you out alive. I don't want to become an idiot like the rest of the people who died. Why can you remain alive while I have to die trying to save you?" Yi Hao shouted in agitation.
He chose to betray his mecha clan because he couldn't understand why their regiment commander placed all their hopes on Liu Furong. Why didn't he consider him? Wasn't he supposed to be the regiment commander's favourite junior? It was all fake! Their regiment commander only trusted Liu Furong who was from the same batch as him. He never believed in him. He was nothing to him.
"Since he chose you, I want him to know that his choice was a mistake. It's all wrong!" Yi Hao lost control of his emotions. The prime minister looked at Yi Hao in shock. He never knew that this powerful Mr. Yi was from the Magic Ace Mecha Clan just like Liu Furong. It looked like the people from the Magic Ace Mecha Clan were not all killed like what the military had reported.
"Stop lying to yourself. You are just afraid of death and afraid that everything you've achieved would be gone. No, these things wouldn't satisfy you. You just wanted a higher position and greater power. That's why you betrayed us. If it wasn't for you, none of the people from the Magic Ace Mecha Clan had to die." Liu Furong couldn't forget how they got surrounded when they got back that year. Their enemy was stronger than them in terms of numbers. Their weapons were all highly advanced. Only the top-tier titled ace mecha clans in the Federation could have such weapons.
How was a small independent planet able to have such weapons and facilities? At that time, they knew that there was a traitor among them.
"You can't blame me for this. The regiment commander wanted to swallow everything. I was unwilling to accept this. We all risk our lives to get that item so we all should get a part of it," Yi Hao refuted.
Liu Furong was in agony. That year, their regiment commander passed that item to him as a safeguard. If their mecha clan was united, they would all be able to return home safely. Once their regiment commander passed that item to the military, the Magic Ace Mecha Clan would gain merits as a whole. Yi Hao would get his share too. From the start, the regiment commander didn't have any intention of taking all the merits. However, but by showing his favour over for one over the other, he sparked jealousy and spite in the clan. Thus, Yi Hao felt that their regiment commander was being unfair to everyone
"We were wrong. You are indeed skillful in mecha piloting and commanding but you don't have a righteous heart." Liu Furong felt regretful. That year, he had vouched for Yi Hao to become a team leader. If Yi Hao didn't become a team leader, his comrades might be still alive now. The Magic Ace Mecha Clan might have become the best mecha clan in the 3rd Division just like what their regiment commander used to say.
