Chapter 1002: A Grim Fate
Very soon, the people Mu Feichi had dispatched to survey the situation had news for them.
Xinqi Town used to be a crucial military site in the past, and several battles had taken place there.
Later, local people had discovered ore in the mountains.
Therefore, excavation and mining operations began in that area.
Decades had passed, and the mineral resources had gradually dwindled away, resulting in the original miners leaving the mines to live in the small town.
Later, the government developed the tourism industry locally, and more and more people came as tourists to the small town.
Few people bothered to venture into the abandoned mining areas that were still up in the mountains.
In addition, after several landslides, the mining area became more deserted, and almost no one went there.
In recent months, a group of people had gone up into the mountains.
They claimed that they were conducting geological surveys in response to the governments request to plant more trees.
Theyd brought a group of experts to the mountains to inspect the foliage.
This group of people lived up in the mountains and seldom went down to the town.
No one knew what they were doing, and they did not even know their exact location.
However, new faces were entering the town frequently.
They went up to the mountains after their arrival, but no one saw them again.
This was the only piece of news that was sent back, but Mu Feichi had figured out the general gist of the situation.
The group of people who claimed to be geologists obviously had an ulterior motive that they were carrying out in the mountains.
Mu Feichis people would have to conduct some investigations in order to find out what was really going on.
“Grey Wolf, check if there are any recruitment listings of late.
The location would be in this small town.
Keep an eye out especially for the recruitment of outsiders.”
“Yes, sir!” Grey Wolf quickly tapped on his keyboard after responding.
He swiftly retrieved several sets of job advertisements from the database.
“These job advertisements are recruiting workers who are from outside of the town.
They only recruit people from outside the town who live in the villages and towns nearby.
The jobs they are recruiting for are for miners and long-distance truck drivers.
I guess they are recruiting for these positions to increase their credibility.
After all, this place was originally a mining site.
They are not targeting the people in the town because if they didnt return, someone would alert the police to go up the mountain to search.
They are very cautious about their operations.”
“It seems that their plan has been laid out very carefully.
Since they are so cautious, it must not be any simple tree-planting activity.”
Furrowing his brows, Mu Feichi studied the topographic map on Yun Xis laptop and rubbed his chin, deep in thought.
“Grey Wolf, could you check the database to see if there were large quantities of hazardous biochemicals in Jun Country that were reported missing or stolen recently.
“Okay!” He responded immediately.
Yun Xis heart sank a little as she considered what Mu Feichi had said.
Coupled with his previous analysis, a wave of worry arose in her heart.
She raised her head and glanced at Mu Feichi.
The two seemed to have an unspoken understanding and could recognize the anxiety in each others eyes.
“If…” Yun Xi paused and took a deep breath to compose her emotions.
“If those people have entered the mountain to develop biological weapons to use for biological warfare, those who applied for the jobs but have not left have probably become lab rats.”
They could not find detailed data, neither did they know how many people had applied for the jobs posted.
If they were doing some forbidden obscure research, then the fates of those people were looking grim.
Recalling back to her past life when she had experimented on herself, Yun Xi still felt an unspeakable pain and chill in her bones.
If she had guessed it right, Feng Yang and the people who had been taken with him were in a dire situation.
Moreover, they were not familiar with the topography there.
If the captives could not find their bearings in time and were in a passive situation, they could be at a higher disadvantage the longer they were there.
“Young Commander…” Yun Xi turned to look at him, but before she could open her mouth to speak, Mu Feichi had walked over and patted her on the shoulder.
I will deal with it.” Mu Feichi reached out and pressed her toward him in a hug.
He raised his head and locked eyes with Grey Wolf.
“Inform our spies in the town to send us a guide who is well-versed in the topography of the mountains.
This must be done stealthily and not draw any attention at all.”
