Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 136
2/5 weekly chapter, enjoy.
“You’re not… in love, are you?”
Seeing Barbara’s silence, Mathison leaned close to her ear and whispered.
“You talk to your boyfriend every night, right?”
“What did you say!”
Barbara suddenly pushed Mathison away with a black face. This guy doesn’t what she is doing, how can she enjoy love?
“You can eat rice, but you can’t talk nonsense, how could you say that, Mathison!”
Barbara was extremely angry. Mathison actually doubted her feelings?
“Then what on earth do you have to hide from me?”
Mathison’s tone suddenly calmed down, and he looked at Barbara’s face indifferently.
“We are childhood sweethearts who grew up together, right, shouldn’t we be honest with each other?”
“In Gotham, you not only didn’t hide your plan to catch the Phantom Kid, you even dragged me together.”
“Why are you hiding everything from me now?”
Barbara’s eyes darkened as Mathison said this.
Yeah, why did she hide it from Mathison?
This obviously makes him think she doesn’t trust him.
But Barbara still didn’t want Mathison to be in danger.
If she tells the existence of the High Tide Organization to Mathison, he will probably prevent her from pursuing it alone.
“It’s really nothing, I’m just…just practicing the new code, what Pamela sees is the way I’m typing the code.”
Barbara still wanted to fool him.
Mathison shook his head. This girl is usually shrewd and capable, but can’t even tell a complete lie in front of hiù.
“Barbara, I know you as you know yourself. Actually, I can guess that you must be thinking about your superhero game.”
“New York is not like Gotham. There are many unnamed street police officers here, but Gotham only has Batman… You want to join them, right?”
Mathison leaned close to Barbara again, his eyes seemed to see everything through her.
“Did you find any strange signs?”
“I’m sorry, Mathison, I shouldn’t have kept this from you, but this is my own business and I can handle it alone.”
Barbara took a deep breath and wanted to turn around and escape.
Who knows, Mathison pulled her from behind, and under the action of mutual force, Barbara’s body landed on Mathison’s chest.
Feeling the warmth behind, Barbara’s face turned red for a moment.
“Hey, Mathison…you, what do you want to do?”
“I, I, I, I will sue you for sexual harassment.”
Mathison just smirked in response. He lifted Barbara’s hair and rested his chin on Barbara’s shoulder.
“What does Mathison mean by this action? He really likes me, right! But why doesn’t he keep telling me”
Barbara couldn’t help thinking about it.
Is her wish for many years finally going to be fulfilled today?
“Barbara, tell me what trouble you are having, maybe you need my help.”
Why does Mathison want to contact the Rising Tide organization so much?
Worrying about Barbara is only one of the reasons. He believes that the oracle can’t beat the high tide.
What’s more important is the information in the hands of the rising tide organization!
What Mathison lacked most at this time was not power. After all, he could get rewards by stealing treasures, and it was not difficult to increase his combat power.
The biggest problem is the location of the treasure, what kind of treasure is he stealing, and how to judge the preciousness of the treasure.
Inquire about related legends?
It’s hard to tell what’s true and false.
Go to the black market to buy intelligence?
The cost is not worth it.
Now Mathison already disdains to steal the average treasure.
Precious treasures are relatively easy to obtain during this time in New York. He only knows space gems and spiritual gems.
When these two show up, that’s when the Chitauri army attacks New York.
During this long period of time, Mathison was ready to make Phantom Kid disappear temporarily.
Then, the high tide organization entered Mathison’s line of sight.
This hacker organization who likes to die and to collect various secrets in the world and plans to make them public.
Naturally, they will not miss the legendary magical treasures.
As long as he destroys the high tide organization or goes undercover, he can easily get this information.
With Barbara’s help, he doesn’t even need too much manipulation.
It completely saves the cost of collecting intelligence by Mathison. Isn’t it a good thing?
To be honest, S.H.I.E.L.D. is the best source of intelligence, but it is a pity that Mathison has no possibility of joining them.
Maybe it was Mathison’s persistence that moved Barbara, or it was for other reasons.
Barbara finally confessed to Mathison her plan to break into the Rising Tide organization.
It turned out that Barbara is not a full member of Rising Tide.
Although her hacking skills are recognized, of course, this is not Barbara’s full level.
However, the Rising Tide group seems to have some doubts about Barbara’s virtual identity.
But they shouldn’t find any real evidence, otherwise, they would have cut off all contact with Barbara.
In short, with Barbara’s unremitting efforts, she finally gained the trust of the rising tide organization.
She only needs to pass the last test, she can become a full member of the Rising Tide organization, a few grades better than the outside cannon fodder.
“The final test, where, what do they want you to do?”
Mathison asked curiously.
“I don’t know,” Barbara shook her head. “They told me to wait for someone by the road in the suburbs tomorrow evening.”
“As for who this person is, what he looks like and how to contact him, they didn’t tell me.”
Waiting for someone on the highway means that the person came by car. If he is taking someone else’s car, it will undoubtedly increase the possibility of his exposure.
Mathison is curious about what kind of people the Rising Tide organization will send to test Barbara.
In the evening of the next day, Barbara came to the road designated by the high tide organization as scheduled.
They chose a good location, and it is almost impossible for anyone to come at this point in time.
The surrounding environment is unobstructed, and other people cannot be hidden.
Mathison did not follow Barbara. After all, the only person to be tested by the High Tide Organization is Barbara.
At this time, Mathison was hiding on the hillside thousands of meters away from the highway, observing the situation through binoculars and eavesdropping devices.
That’s right, Mathison installed a bug on Barbara’s body, and it was made of special materials to shield the signals of commonly used detection devices.
It didn’t take long for a modified van to drive over from a distance.
Barbara’s eyes condensed, and she was finally about to meet the people of the high tide organization.
Along with a harsh brake sound, the van stopped in front of Barbara.
Then, a young girl about the age of Barbara opened the door and got out of the car.
“Hi, are you Barbara Gunnhild? I’m Skye.”
The girl who called herself Skye walked up to Barbara and stretched out her hand to her with a smile…
