Chapter 1181 - You Know Too Much
True enough, the railway tracks appeared after twenty-five kilometres. Due to the lack of care, the tracks were covered with a thick layer of dead leaves and raging vines. It stretched forward with no immediate end in sight.
The veteran soldiers recruited by the Relief Society stepped onto the abandoned railway and began to pick up speed. Everyone was jogging. They had only a few tens of hours to complete a distance of more than a hundred kilometres, running was a must if they wished to reach the gathering point before sunrise.
Xia Lei began to run with Shentu Tianyin over his back. His long legs strode across each heavy plank used on the tracks, causing Shentu Tianyin to bounce on his back. She went up, down, up, down with alternating steps. With that motion, her soft breasts were forced to make contact with his back…
The four female knights wanted to help Xia Lei out. But as soon as they noticed that Xia Lei’s performance was not affected by the additional load, they dismissed the thought. The man was not panting at all! If he had no issues, why the need for help then?
Shentu Tianyin was surprised by his strength. She thought, “How is he so strong? Is this caused by those rumoured capsules and evolution? His children were already able to speak at two months old and their brains were developed a few years beyond their age. They must’ve inherited his genes. If our children too had inherited his genes, would they become as strong and smart as their father?”
Thinking of children, Shentu Tianyin couldn’t help but feel giddy. After all, there was a chance that half of her child was still in Xia Lei’s lower half and there was only one way to make a baby.
Excitement was a drug that elicited certain responses from the human body and her manifestation of that was felt by Xia Lei’s palm. Anyway, this was a vicious cycle drenched in pink.
Twenty kilometres later, an abandoned building on the side of the railway was seen.
Giovanna, who was in the front of the formation, suddenly paused and raised a palm to stop everyone else. Despite their numbers, the soldiers came to a stop without further noise. While some expertly laid flat on the tracks, some of the others went into hiding inside the jungle on both sides. From the looks of it, the Relief Society soldiers were trained well.
Xia Lei placed Shentu Tianyin down. “Stay here. Don’t move around, okay?”
Shentu Tianyin nodded.
Crouching his torso, he went over to Giovanna. Just as she was about to send someone over to scout the area, he stopped her. “Send me there instead.”
“But master…” How could Giovanna bear to send Xia Lei out to scout?
Xia Lei insisted, “Do as I say.”
“Alright.” Xia Lei was persistent so Giovanna gave in. She pretended to gesture a little and let Xia Lei out to check the building ahead.
The man had volunteered to do so because he had long detected the oddities in the building. The building that was about two hundred metres away was probably the repair and supply station back then. It had two floors; there were four men in a room on the bottom floor and there were two more of them on the roof. Though he was separated by two-hundred-metre distance and compromised by the dark, Xia Lei had long spotted the observer on the roof from a mile away. It was through his X-ray vision that he found the four men in the bottom room.
There were six men in the building. Though they weren’t dressed uniformly, they were all armed with long and short weapons like the AK47. One of them was even holding an old Soviet-made RPG rocket launcher. These armed members were evidently not from the American Delta Forces but from the Boko Haram armed group. Perhaps they were the patrolling members that Qian Jun had mentioned earlier.
For the Boko Haram members to be aware of this railroad was to be expected. After all, some of the members could’ve been recruited around the area. They were well-versed with the environment, which was why they were tasked to watch the tracks in order to stop anyone from getting close to the Alliance Mine.
Xia Lei left the tracks and dove into the jungle on the right. As he stealthily made his way over, he produced his Viper pistol and put on its silencer.
The forest foliage was dense with trees and creeping vines, but that did not stop Xia Lei from closing in onto the building. He was fast, his steps almost as if he was a monkey or even a panther. His speed was not human-like at all.
In a matter of seconds, Xia Lei sprinted through a distance of more than a hundred metres. He began to slow down about fifty metres away from the building. He wasn’t exactly worried about getting spotted by the rooftop observers. There was a chance that the Boko Haram armed members had planted landmines around the area.
Scanning through the ground, Xia Lei took note of all the landmines buried underground. There were a total of twelve mines, all of which were powerful anti-infantry landmines made by the Americans.
If Giovanna had sent over someone else, they too would’ve chosen to go near the building through the jungle. In that case, they would be forced to get past this area filled with landmines. To bury twelve landmines in such a small area would’ve rendered even the strongest veteran vulnerable as they could not see what was beneath the surface. As soon as the Relief Society’s soldiers stepped on it, the mines would be triggered and an explosion would play out. And that would expose their operation entirely. The Boko Haram group and the Delta Forces would rush here very soon, and things would take a terrible turn for everyone.
With ease, Xia Lei avoided the mines and slowly closed the distance. Forty metres … Thirty metres… Twenty metres…
On the roof, a Boko Haram armed member brought out a pack of cigarettes and passed one stick to his comrade. His comrade hovered a lighter over and lit its tip.
“There are no women around this fucking place. How much longer do we need to stay here for?”
“I don’t know. I fucking hate this place man.”
