In ancient mythology, responsible for manning the Nai He Bridge in the Hellmouth.
Anyone who could use this as a code name, outside of the frontier, was clearly out of the question.
Elder Long nodded, “It is someone from this Frontier, and a female, but extremely mysterious, Master used the Chen Family intelligence agency, while linking the Zhang and Chu families in Kyoto, and the Qin and Zhuge families in Western Shu, but none of them were ever found out.”
Chen Dong was not surprised.
The dark web was already full of blood and gloom.
There were countless assassins listed in the Hidden Killers Organisation, and there was even a list of 100 Deaths, these people were killers with blood on their hands in the Dark Network.
But when they return to life, they have to show themselves as ordinary people.
I don’t think many of them would want to go public with the fact that they are top killers with blood on their hands, right?
“Do you think, she will come for me?”
Chen Dong’s heart was palpitating, the God of Death List was a list of the top 100 listed by the Hidden Killers Organisation, and those who could kill the God List were definitely true top killers.
From Kunlun’s strength, one could get a glimpse of what was going on.
What’s more, this “Mona” was ranked 20th, two places higher than Kunlun!
Now that Kunlun was still lying in hospital, Chen Dong had no confidence at all.
No, even if Kunlun was with him, he would not have any confidence.
“It should be.” Elder Long stared soberly, not choosing to comfort Chen Dong on this matter, even pausing for a moment as he continued, “Perhaps, there are more Death List killers appearing in the back, the longer it drags on, the more there will be, it is a sort of competitive challenge.”
“A competition to kill?”
Chen Dong dawned on him, this was like an examination, as long as he lived, the killers would fail time and time again, instead, it would stir up more and more killers’ desire to win.
And with that, the more top 100 killers there would be.
Only those who actually made the answer sheet, that would rightfully be enough to show off to the other killers who did not make the answer sheet.
After thinking about it, Chen Dong, however, smiled bitterly, rubbed his chin and said with a deep gaze, “Elder Long, I feel like I’ve been lassoed into a dead-end knot that is trying to strangle me to death little by little.”
“Young master relax, there will definitely be a turnaround.”
Although Elder Long was comforting, his despondent and gloomy look was a perfect expression of his own feelings.
Chen Dong stretched, “Well, it’s late, Long Lao should rest early, I’ll also go back to bed.”
Back to his room.
Chen Dong did not immediately lie down on the bed, but took out his mobile phone and flipped to find Gu Qingying’s number.
After hesitating for a moment, he tuned to Gu Qingying’s WeChat interface again, yet …… was still hesitating.
Nowadays, the only thing he could think of to comfort himself was his wife.
But he had tricked Gu Qingying away in order to keep her out of this whirlpool.
If he contacted at this point, wouldn’t he be blowing himself up?
A long time later.
Chen Dong shook his head, “Forget it, if the little fool really knew what the situation was now, she would have come back to stay with me, I am returning the favor by contacting her now.”
As he was about to put his phone down, his mobile phone WeChat suddenly rang with the sound of a message.
When he picked it up and took a look, Chen Dong was instantly lost in thought.
The message, was from Gu Qingying.
The content was simple.
“Honey, Sister Xiao Lu and I have arrived.”
Also at the time when Chen Dong was lost in thought, Gu Qingying sent a message over once again.
“How is your matter being handled? Is it really a small matter? Don’t lie to me! Or I’ll whack you! (Vicious)”
Looking at the text and expression, Chen Dong even made up a mental picture of Gu Qingying’s fierce appearance.
Quietly, a warm current surged in his heart.
It was as if the gloom overhead was much less.
He quickly replied, “It’s being dealt with, don’t worry, it’s really a small matter, didn’t I take an oath, how could I lie to you?”
Soon, Gu Qingying replied with a message.
“Well, I believe you, you take care of things, I’ll leave you alone, besides remember to think of me, I’m already thinking of you (love), good night.”
Chen Dong laughed dumbly, “Good night.”
Putting down his phone, he leaned back in his chair and rested his hands behind his head.
A few text chats, however, made him relax.
With his wife’s comfort and encouragement, even the biggest things were minor.
Yawning, Chen Dong got up and was about to go into the bathroom to take a bath and then rest.
But just as he was getting up.
A cool breeze blew into the house.
It was already autumn, and the wind at ten o’clock at night was slightly cool.
Chen Dong turned to close the window, but just the moment he reached the window.
An ear-piercing sound of breaking wind suddenly sounded.
Chen Dong’s expression froze, his scalp tingled in a flash, and a strong sense of crisis arose.
Almost instinctively, he shifted his body and leaned against the wall by the window.
At the same time, a cold, glittering arrow glanced past his eyes like lightning and shot directly into the wall opposite the window!
It was so powerful that it even made a loud “Duang” sound, and the arrow’s feathers trembled terribly.
It was so close!
Chen Dong’s expression changed dramatically.
His heart was beating faster, as if it was about to jump out of his chest.
He was about to call out to the security personnel when suddenly, his eyes looked askance at a note hanging from the trembling arrow on the wall.
Vaguely, he could see handwriting on it.
With a solemn expression, Chen Dong suddenly turned around and closed the window with great speed.
With a roll on the ground, he reached the arrow and stretched his right hand upwards, and a “fish scale thread” shot out from the metal box tied to his wrist and wrapped around the arrow.
With a strong tug, the arrow fell into his hand.
Tearing off the note on the arrow, Chen Dong spread it out and looked at it.
A bad chill instantly shot up from the soles of his feet to the sky, as if he had fallen into an ice cave.
The script on the note was beautiful, but there was a vague sense of harshness.
It was a strange feeling, the almost opposite qualities of gracefulness and harshness blended together.
And the content was.
“A large stone platform at the back of the bamboo forest, unguarded? Killing you is easy as pie! Allow you to set up your defence and kill you next time!”
Signed by: the Mona!
Looking at the final drop, Chen Dong’s mind buzzed.
It had come so quickly?
Looking at each word on the note, he could even feel the mockery and disdain that pounced on his face.
This arrow just now.
Meng Po was able to kill him with a single blow in the dark!
Instead of killing him, by preference, Meng Mo used this arrow to send a message to remind him!
This was not out of kindness on Meng’s part, but out of that lofty outlook, and out of a powerful confidence in her own killing ability.
She was thinking that it was too easy to kill me!
Chen Dong’s heart chilled for a moment, and the sweat on his body quietly exploded.
In a trance, he thought of the location of this bamboo courtyard.
The Four Seals Clubhouse itself was built by the mountains and the water, and this bamboo courtyard belonged to this bamboo forest alone, which was quiet and elegant.
But behind it, there was a cliff, and there were cliff rocks extending to both sides, presenting an enclosing trend that surrounded the bamboo forest and the courtyard.
Thinking of this, Chen Dong’s eyes flashed brightly and he looked towards the closed window, and in that direction, there was a cliff stone sticking out horizontally.
At this moment, might Meng be standing on that cliff stone, looking at this side with a look of death?
Taking a deep breath, Chen Dong suddenly gave birth to an odd blood courage out.
He got up, walked to the window and pushed it open without hesitation ……
The night was cool as water.
The bright moon is also mostly obscured by dark clouds.
The view was through the bamboo forest, and the cliff rocks sticking out horizontally were faintly visible.
But what exactly was on it, Chen Dong could not see clearly.
“You, are you still there?”
Chen Dong murmured with a complicated expression.
The arrow that Meng Po had just fired, which could clearly kill him in one go, had deliberately sent a letter to remind him.
This manifested her strong confidence in her assassination strength.
The content of the note, in other words, was that even if the cliff stones at the back of the mountain were fortified, Meng Po would still be able to kill him.
The only difference was that the difficulty had increased!
As if to say that the difficulty of the heavily fortified rock would only match her status as a top killer.
The arrow just now was considered a fluke.
But Chen Dong could not smile at all, instead, a strong feeling of frustration arose.
He disliked such a feeling, which was why he had pushed open the window.
The words had just fallen.
In the darkness, there was another slight sound of breaking wind.
Faintly, Chen Dong could feel something coming at extreme speed.
This time, however, he did not dodge.
With a light sound, the arrow nailed the external wall by the window, its body trembling.
And on the top, there was a note as well.
Chen Dong calmly took the note off.
When it was unfolded, there were only two simple words.
He smiled faintly, a smile that was thick with bitterness and helplessness.
When he had pushed the window, he had been certain that Meng would not kill him tonight.
Otherwise, the summons to warn him just now would have been meaningless.
It was a strong man’s mentality.
Not bothering to lower the difficulty to slay a mole.
Similarly, Chen Dong also had this mentality, which was why he could be certain of Meng’s mind.
Next time, though, perhaps this would not be the case.
Chen Dong shook his head, crumpled the note into a ball, threw it out of the window and closed it again.
There were no words all night.
When early morning came.
Chen Dong woke up and called for Elder Long and Lone Wolf early in the morning to tell them what had happened last night.
After hearing this, Elder Long and Lone Wolf’s faces changed greatly at the same time.
One had to know that when they had moved into the Four Seals Clubhouse.
The security system of the Four Seals Clubhouse had been raised to the highest.
And Lone Wolf had also led the security team to set up the instruments while sweeping the entire bamboo forest like a plough.
Even so, there was still a mistake?
“Sorry Mr. Chen, that area at the back of the mountain, the cliff, the mountain is dangerous, so when we moved in yesterday, the team and I all decided that no one would come down from there, but we didn’t expect ……”
Lone Wolf was full of guilt and remorse, because of this slip-up, if Meng hadn’t deliberately let the water out last night, perhaps what they would have seen when they pushed the door this morning would have been Chen Dong’s corpse.
“No need to blame yourselves, not to mention you guys, even I never thought that people could actually go there before.”
Chen Dong waved his hand and interrupted Lone Wolf’s words, the steepness of the back mountain was so steep that there was no place to stand at a glance, only the cliff rocks sticking out horizontally could stand, but trying to descend from the top of the back mountain to the top of the cliff rocks would have been a matter of nine deaths and a lot of dangers.
It’s not their fault for being careless, it’s the killer’s fault for being too desperate!
“Lone Wolf, take the men to the back of the mountain and set up immediately.
Elder Long ordered in a deep voice, but his eyes kept changing, as if he was thinking about something.
After Lone Wolf had left.
Only then did Elder Long say, “It was a great blessing that Young Master escaped last night.”
“She thought it was too easy to kill me last night, so she didn’t bother to kill me.” Chen Dong smiled bitterly, “But after the back mountain setup is completed, she won’t show any mercy in killing me.”
Elder Long sighed heartily, “I really didn’t expect that Meng would come so quickly, if we delay any longer, perhaps there will be someone to compete against.”
Chen Dong’s pupils gradually tightened and returned to normal.
Secretly, his right hand was tightly clenched into a fist.
After releasing it, he asked, “On my father’s side, how is the investigation of Old Lady Chen going?”
Elder Long shook his head, “I don’t know yet, but according to the results of my old servant’s initial speculations after contacting some of the family’s spies, this matter should have nothing to do with Old Madam Chen.”
“Nothing?” Chen Dong was shocked.
Elder Long said, “The old madam has recently lived in the Buddha Hall, chanting sutras and praying to Buddha, eating fasting and cultivating her mind, she has not had any contact with people at all, and her close friends have not gone into the Buddha Hall with her, just like being isolated from the world.”
Chen Dong rubbed his nose, his gaze deep, “If not her, then who else could have guided this assassination?”
“The Li family? The Qin family? Or does Young Master have other enemies?” Elder Long asked tentatively.
Chen Dong shook his head, “A bunch of idiots from the Li family wouldn’t do this, the Qin family is in a state of flux and has Qin Ye and Qin Xiao Qian holding the lifeline, the Qin family wouldn’t dare to do this, as for other enemies ……”
Chen Dong looked at Long Lao with bewildered eyes and said helplessly, “You know, I’ve always been good to people, where do I get so many enemies.”
Long Lao was silent for a few seconds and shook his head, “It’s better to wait for your lordship to investigate the matter thoroughly before making a decision.”
The week after that.
Chen Dong stayed in the small bamboo forest courtyard without leaving an inch of his life.
And with the powerful security monitoring, killers were constantly discovered, and with the quick response of Lone Wolf and the security team, crises were nipped in the bud time and again.
In just one week, there were 18 assassination infiltrations.
Such a frequency cannot be considered fierce.
Moreover, as time passed, the number of assassins appearing on a single day became more and more intense.
It was just as Chen Donglong Lao had predicted at the beginning, things were festering and the assassination was gradually evolving into a competitive hunt.
As time went on, the assassins would only appear more and more frequently if the commissioned tasks were not resolved.
But what surprised Chen Dong a little was this.
Zhuge Qing’er led the Zhuge Family’s intelligence network, combined with the forces of Zhou Yanqiu and Zhou Zunlong, and rummaged through the entire city, and did manage to identify quite a few suspected killers of suspicious appearance.
But they couldn’t find any trace of the deadly mercenaries who had escaped!
It was as if after the battle at Tianmen Mountain, the fleeing Dead Servant mercenaries had gotten scared and simply abandoned Chen Dong, disappearing far away.
It was late at night.
Chen Dong looked at the Four Seals Club assassination information that he had compiled over the past few days, his brows furrowed and his face was as gloomy as water.
“Young master, it is late at night, rest.” Elder Long brought over a bowl of ginger soup, “Drink some ginger soup to warm your body.”
“Still no news from the Deadman mercenaries?”
Chen Dong put down the information and said in a deep voice, “They are a group of desperate people who lick blood from the mouth of a knife, they cannot stop here, if I cannot find them, I will not have peace of mind for one day, and this assassination frequency, yesterday alone, Lone Wolf and the others found four assassins, killing three and escaping one.”
Long Lao was speechless, but full of helplessness.
Such a situation was too passive.
But this was the best way to deal with the assassination, there was no way out other than this.
At that very moment.
The door to the room was pushed open again.
Lone Wolf walked in with a hurried look, saying warily.
“Young Master, the back of the mountain is under guard, the surveillance has been locked, please ask Young Master and Elder Long to leave this house!”
Chen Dong and Elder Long looked at each other.
Meng …… is here again?
