The rain was getting more and more heavy in the city. Amber kept her gaze wandering, looking out through the windshield.If she hadn't left with James, she would have to wait at the Eclipse for hours, as there was no sign of the rain stopping.James was still focused on the road ahead, right hand holding the steering wheel and left hand holding the gear."Thanks for taking me home, by the way," Amber said."You're welcome. We are coworkers, even though we are on different teams. So, don't feel shy like that," James explained.The two fell silent again, Amber still enjoying the heavy raindrops that continued to fall on this car driving on the city highway.Amber's residence was in an elite residential compound east of the city. Given her larger salary than James, it wasn't strange that she lived there."Is it nice working with Dr. Issac?" asked James, starting the conversation to avoid awkwardness."What do you mean?" asked Ambe
James continued to work, focusing his mind and body on the instructions Iris gave him. That day, they weren't only tasked with making the medicine but also researching it so that the herbal medicine was ready to be put on the market. He had lunch together with Jayden and Hannah. Martin was not seen in the company cafeteria. The man had told his assistant to get the lunch menu from the cafeteria, as Martin wanted to eat it in his room while working. It had been a busy day for Martin, as he had been informed by one of the seven High Roses confidants that Void's warehouse in the forest had been destroyed. He suffered a huge loss because hundreds of thousands of DD pills that should have been distributed to the public ended up in ashes in the hands of the people who attacked the place. Because of that incident, he lost hundreds of thousands of Cara –the currency of the Republic of Carran. The bell rang loudly. James looked at his watch; it was already three in the afternoon. People sta
***The next day.The three Void members' defence was so strong that Klaus failed to get any valuable information about the High Roses. He was so frustrated that he tried everything but failed in the end."Sorry, I cannot get them to talk about who the High Roses are," Klaus said, arriving at the lakeside house with Carlos.James had woken up early in the morning. He appeared to be wearing a white shirt and black suit that matched him, preparing to go to work at Eclipse."So what did you get from them?" asked James.Carlos walked over to James, handing him a blue folder containing papers he had taken notes on during the interrogation process.James took the file, opened it and read it carefully. There were three important pieces of information that Carlos and Klaus were able to get: Information on the location of Void's other warehouses, the DD pill compounding place, and the antidote."Antidote? Did you get any more informatio
"What? President Zacharia's son?" asked James.He couldn't hide his surprise when he heard Lara's explanation. He focused his eyes on Amelia, standing tall before him, trying to confirm the truth."Yes," Amelia said.James sighed softly, scratching his head of hair that wasn't itchy at all."Is there a problem?" asked Amelia, both curious and worried."Nothing, your relationship with Leon won't affect my mission," replied James."In fact, we will be advantaged by the relationship between the two. Communication with President Zacharia will be easier," said Lara."I can consider that an advantage for our mission," James replied."You can have a relationship with anyone. It's your right, but don't let it impact your work," James continued."You know how Dad is when things don't go his way," James countered.Amelia smiled widely. At first, she thought James would scold her and forbid her from having a relationship with someone. However, what she feared didn't happen at all.She promised J
Not only did they bury the guards, but they also began to destroy the drugs by burning them. Lawrence's guards began spilling glass bottles of DD pills into a large, deep hole.Lorenzo managed to arrest one person, a young man. Now, there were a total of three people arrested by Red Eye agents.The three would soon be brought to Red Eye along with Klaus. The man was eager to undergo their interrogation process.James was still outside the residence, watching from afar the process of destroying the drugs. He stood together with Lara, looking in the same direction."Klaus said he confirmed that the position of the next Void drug storehouse is in a village," Lara said."I already know that," James explained."They'll find out soon enough that this place has been attacked," Lara explained.The man seemed to turn his body around, looking at the wooden house full of bullet holes and the front yard damaged by the Van's car crash. They will s
***The next dayCarlos released military drones into the jungle sky, three in number and all with silence spec. The engine was no longer a propeller but a mini turbofan system located on all four sides of the drone.They were expensive in the market since they were meant for military use, but James could easily afford one because of two things: his wealth and job.James and the others were already in the forest. They left from Newstrand at midnight and arrived there at three in the morning.This ambush operation was divided into three teams: the first team was assigned to ambush the Void lab directly, the second team to sabotage the electrical equipment and electronic signals, and the last team was assigned to clear the area."How's it going, Carlos?" asked James, speaking through a military headset."Three drones are in the sky, starting to map out the number of targets," Carlos replied.The man was the busiest at the moment.
Prime began collecting surveillance camera footage around Coastline Street for his investigation; there were seven video files with a duration of one day.It was easy for the AI to collect such data, unlike before when James had to go here and there to get data."Save those files in my personal digital storage. I will check them after arriving at Ruth's residence," James said.[Alright][Starts uploading file][1%][30%]While waiting for the video to finish uploading, James chose to leave the place to return to Ruth's residence. He already had a rough time today, even though he hadn't done a full day's activities yet.
"Lab rats?" the policeman asked, James nodded slowly.James put the glass bottle of DD pills back into the wooden cabinet. He walked over to one of the victims of the drug dealers' cruelty, staring at their lifeless bodies.Not a single one of the five victims was alive. They seemed to have died a few days ago, so their skin and flesh still existed despite the green liquid."Did they die because of this?" the policeman asked."All of them died from an overdose of those pills. If you've never seen the worst of it, they're an example," Tobias replied.Several people came into this place dressed in special suits so tight that masks were placed over their faces. There were seven. Four of them were seen taking care of the dead, th
As they watched the DD pill patients, the room door opened and revealed two patients coming in. James and Dave turned their faces, staring at the entrance."Isn't it too early for them to arrive?" asked James."Since the disease spread, no one can predict when the patients will arrive," Dave replied.The middle-aged doctor approached the two patients, their hands and feet shackled by tight ropes attached to the bed.He conducted a brief check-up, such as heart rate, eyeballs, and pain sensitivity in the hands and feet. Even though they were giggling endlessly, they still had painful expressions when Dave pinched them."They seem to be in the early stages. Put them in the seventh room," Dave said.
