Chapter 46: Rescue
Translator: _Min_ Editor: Lis_, Rundi
“There’s one on the roof, four standing on the second floor, and five out front.” Nick stretched out on top of the roof and used a pair of binoculars to observe the target structure. “Robert is confirmed alive.”
The three-story tall building had at least ten terrorists on site. Nick began to worry for Jiang Chen as even for someone like him, it would be nearly impossible to rescue someone without alerting nearby guards.
However, if they alerted the guards on patrol duty in the streets, then they must face the attack from an entire town of IS soldiers.
“Affirmative, just cover me when I back out.” Jiang Chen stood by a fruit store picking fruits as he occasionally glanced at the IS soldiers passing by. He had a head scarf on his head with only his eyes exposed.
It was exciting for him.
He opened his mouth and took a deep breath before turning into an alley.
He noticed that there was no one around, so he took out the bag Yao Yao gave him from the storage dimension and equipped it onto himself.
The drone from the future was going to be useful now as an odd smile appeared on Jiang Chen’s face. He connected his EP onto the palm-sized circle disk.
The bottom of the drone slightly vibrated followed by an almost undetectable noise as it followed Jiang Chen’s instruction and flew into the air.
It carefully avoided the sight of the guards as Jiang Chen cautiously controlled the drone to fly over the wall onto the top floor. It recorded the heat map of the entire building as all the guards appeared on the EP map. After he had parked the drone on the top floor, Jiang Chen gave an order to Nick.
“Take out the scout on the top floor.”
“Affirmative.” Nick naturally noticed Jiang Chen’s drone and was surprised by Jiang Chen’s ability. He zoomed in with his M27 rifle.
The silencer lightly buzzed.
A blood hole appeared on the terrorist’s forehead. As he was about to fall over, the drone hidden behind him popped a hook and carried his body to the middle of the roof and slowly released him.
Not a single person noticed.
Nick was completely stunned. He saw the Indago drone that the UA special forces used in Kane and he thought that represented the peak of the drone technology. But when he saw the palm-sized drone, his understanding of field was challenged.
Silent enough to move behind the target and its hook powerful enough to drag the body.
This was the first time he saw a drone that agile and discreet.
[His country’s military technology is this powerful?
Or is Jiang Chen representing an unknown force?]
Nick didn’t understand, but he didn’t need to understand.
He knew that his boss could be rescued now.
Jiang Chen used the image generated through his EP to determine the guard’s distribution within the building. He took a deep breath and moved to the side of the building.
He pressed against the ground, for the first time using all his strength in the modern world.
Jiang Chen hopped two meters high, grabbed onto the roof of a small building and rolled beside the water tank.
It was a smooth move.
This was the muscle and reflex two times stronger than ordinary people. He gradually clinched his fingers and looked at the street across.
It was three meters wide with little traffic.
Eight meters away from the roof, with a height difference of two meters.
“How far is the closest patrol from this place?” Jiang Chen used the communication device in his ear and asked.
“Two streets,” Nick answered after he scanned the area.
“I am about to enter, watch out for me.”
“Understood.” Nick put the binoculars aside as he reloaded the M27 rifle.
Red dots began to pop up in Jiang Chen’ vision. Even the wall cannot stop the vivid red from appearing, it belonged to the color of hearts beating.
The desire to rip the hearts apart.
All the cells in his body were boiling.
He inhaled and tried to suppress the negative emotions from his mind as he slightly bent his knees.
If it were two times his muscle strength, it would be questionable, but now it was four times.
Abruptly, his pushed his legs down onto the ground and stepped back before he dashed across the eight-meter distance, grasping onto the roof of the third floor.
[Fu*k, this hurts.]
The fury strengthened his muscle but not his bones. The shock from the impact with the wall made him grind his teeth together, but he managed to overcome the pain and initiated the tranquilizer on the EP.
Fury disarmed. His heartbeat returned to normal.
“What is it?” A terrorist looked out the window and scanned for any irregularity.
“Don’t know, let Zayev go take a look.”
Jiang Chen held his breath as he pressed against the wall. He didn’t understand what they were saying as he prayed that they won’t look up. Jiang Chen was right above the IS soldier. If he got caught, then he would have to fight a violent battle.
He wasn’t afraid, but Robert’s safety would be jeopardized.
Jiang Chen’s sudden move shocked Nick as he didn’t suspect Jiang Chen to jump across.
[An eight-meter distance, two-meter height difference?
Nick didn’t let his guard down when he saw Jiang Chen sneak into the building, his rifle aimed directly at the head stuck outside the window. If he looked up and saw Jiang Chen, Nick would have to kill him. Stealth entry would become a battle.
Fortunately, it seemed that it was inconvenient to look up while wearing a hat, the terrorist didn’t see anything odd, so he retracted his head. From common sense, no one could jump onto a building.
Jiang Chen was relieved as he rolled onto the roof.
The reason why he dared to use brute force to jump over was not that he didn’t think it through. Instead, when fury was activated, he saw the distribution of the people in the room. He estimated that the risk of being spotted was small, so he decided to use four times the strength of a regular people and jumped over.
First, silence device.
NATO special forces equipment, he purchased at the Sixth Street Junk Yard for 30 crystals. The device could silence up to a radius of ten meters. Although not as useful in the apocalypse, but quite handy in the modern world. It can be activated for 15 seconds.
He laughed and took out the device from where Nick couldn’t see. He pressed the device against the roof. He then started the drone and made sure the IS soldiers were unaware before he rotated the silent device’s button.
It produced a sound of buzzing electricity. The surrounding air became unstable under the unique field, all sounds were erased.
The brick roof was exploded open with dynamite.
Jiang Chen did not hesitate as he took out his pistol and jumped into the room.
Future tech was indeed powerful, no one noticed the violent explosion.
With both feet on the ground, Jiang Chen saw Robert in the corner. He ripped off his headscarf and smiled.
“I can’t believe you are the one saving me, my friend,” Robert said with a bitter smile.
“Oh? Are you disappointed?” Jiang Chen shrugged with a joking voice.
“No, I appreciate your help.” Robert stood up and genuinely bowed down. “If there is anything I can assist you with in the future, please don’t hesitate to tell me.”
“You still owe me a deal.”
Robert was confused for a brief second before he smiled.
“Not just a deal, my friend.”
Jiang Chen didn’t continue talking with him. He retracted the silent device and walked to the door. Robert surprisingly looked at the pistol in Jiang Chen’s hand. For as long as he has been in the firearm business, he never saw a gun like it.
As well as the silent explosion.
But Robert didn’t ask, everyone had their own privacy. It would be impolite to ask.
If he could rescue people, it won’t be hard to kill people.
“Nick, the hostage is rescued. Cover me,” Jiang Chen spoke into the communication device.
“I understand,” Nick replied emotionlessly as a cruel smile appeared across his face.
[You bastards, I’ll kill you all.]
He opened the safety.
He locked onto a terrorist that looked like a commander and pulled the trigger.
The blood hole penetrated through the target’s head as he dropped down onto the floor.
“It’s the UA citizens! Quick!” But what they didn’t know was, the one firing was a Byelorussian, and the one rescuing was an Eastern man.
Shouting noises resonated through the door, as well as the explosive firing of the assault rifles.
Jiang Chen monitored the outside with the drone.
Nick was indeed an experienced soldier. A single rifle was enough to suppress all the IS soldiers. The screaming bullets accurately penetrated through flesh and ended their sinful lives one by one.
Nick managed to control the soldiers around the building. Jiang Chen waved at Robert signaling their retreat. He aimed his pistol at the wooden door.
The wooden door was slammed open. A terrorist screaming a foreign language rushed in with an assault rifle and met a pistol in his face.
With a hole in his forehead, the man dropped dead.
“Instincts, don’t worry about it,” Jiang Chen joked with the shocked Robert before he rushed out.
Instinct? The drone’s instinct.
Jiang Chen replied to the nonsensical screaming with a bullet. Although the 11 tactical pistol was only a pistol, it was technology from 100 years later. Despite the same size bullet, the material of the bullet as well its accuracy was far superior compared to modern weapons.
Although it was a pistol, it could easily shoot through the brick wall.
The highly penetrative bullet made the IS soldiers around the stairs not dare to come close to the wall. But as they continued to hide, it troubled Jiang Chen as well. Since this is an IS-controlled territory, there was no way they could escape if this dragged on.
Time to try the thermal detection grenade.
A grimace appeared on Jiang Chen’s face. The thing he got from Zhao Chenwu, the firearm dealer from the apocalypse.
He popped the switch and threw the grenade away.
The grenade in midair suddenly paused as flames began to spit out from one side. It was as if it had eyes, it flew directly at the IS soldiers around the stairs.
They didn’t even have time to duck down.
The grenade exploded as soon as it detected heat.
The explosive chips destroyed the entire staircase. Jiang Chen could almost sense the violent explosion.
“God, what are these things?” Robert hid behind Jiang Chen’s back as he blankly stared ahead.
“Some new gadgets. Stop talking, follow me.” Jiang Chen changed a clip and rushed to the stairs.
Thermal detection grenade. Those things were slightly pricey being five times the price of a regular grenade. It was only useful on humans and would be interfered by the cheaper EMP grenade or heat bait, so they were not as useful in the apocalypse.
All the sudden, the wooden floor crashed open on the side.
“Allah!” A man with an assault rifle dashed out and tried to smash his gun against Jiang Chen’s head.
But he did have a reflex of 29, so he would not get hit by a surprise attack like that.
A violent stream of air ripped through Jiang Chen’s arm as the almost liquid phase nitrogen slammed onto the man’s chest like a hammer.
He flew away like a bomb and smashed against the wall.
[Should be dead.
Damn, this thing could be used as a close range weapon.] Jiang Chen pleasingly looked at the metal bracelet on his arm.
Robert stared dumbfoundedly at him. Jiang Chen glanced at him, and half-jokingly said.
“I guess you are going to keep the secret for me, right?”
Robert continued to stare dully, but he nodded.
[God… is this a Hollywood movie.]
Jiang Chen was pleased by Robert’s reaction as he signaled for him to follow and rushed downstairs.
He was not afraid of Robert not keeping the secret, no one would believe some of the things that happened.
Especially if he were smart enough, he would shut his mouth.
