BONUS Chapter brought to you by KingSpy, enjoy!
“Charlie, Gotham will soon have a showdown in which GCPD, Penguin, Black Mask, and Bane will all be involved.” Mathison was flying towards the Diamond District while contacting Charlie at the same time.
“Take care of Lucius Fox, don’t let him run around until I come back.”
“Don’t worry, he has no intention of leaving at all.”
Charlie’s response came through the communicator.
“Remember not to let Lucius hear you.”
“Ha, as long as you don’t feed him the Translation Konjac, he won’t be able to understand me.”
Charlie was confused.
Why does Mathison always ignore such simple truths?
Mathison was speechless for a while. While Lucius might have never eaten the Translation Konjac, he had, so Charlie’s voice is no different from human speech in his ears.
“Although Lucius had no intention of leaving the place after you left, he started using the laptop you left behind and seemed to be trying to contact someone.”
Hearing what Charlie said, Mathison smiled knowingly.
“I knew who he was trying to contact, and that’s why I left the computer.”
“He has tried many times so far and it has all failed.”
“Well…” Mathison pondered for a while, “I didn’t expect this situation, it seems that our guy hasn’t climbed up from the well.”
“By the way, Charlie, you’re staring at Lucius. Didn’t he ever suspect you?”
“Of course, I don’t stare at him all the time. Occasionally I run over to take a look. Not only he doesn’t doubt it, but he thinks I’m quite… lively?”
Charlie was powerless to complain.
“You’d better find out where the damn truck went, I don’t want to stay in this broken city any longer.”
“Although you said that… wait, I’m sorry.”
Just when Mathison wanted to say that finding the missing truck was not an easy task, he suddenly saw two familiar figures coming from the direction of the Diamond District.
Yes, it was Barbara and Pamela.
“How could the two of them appear here, and from the direction, it seems that they have just come out of the Diamond District…”
With a throb in Mathison’s heart, he ended his contact with Charlie and adjusted the angle of the glider to dive down.
“Pamela, haven’t you found Kid yet?”
On the ground, Barbara asked Pamela.
Pamela closed her eyes, her spirit connected with the surrounding plants, trying to detect Phantom Kid’s presence.
However, when Mathison rescued Lucius, he flew in the sky almost the whole time. Except for a few potted plants on the roof, none of the plants had the right angle to gain a view and spot Mathison.
It had been quite a struggle to track him all the way to this location.
After all, at Pamela’s current level of ability, forcibly connecting with a potted plant is very energetically consuming, which is completely different from manipulating plants with roots in the ground.
With Pamela’s ability’s activation, sweat on her forehead suddenly began to become dense.
Seeing this scene, Barbara had to console her, “Forget it, Pamela, if you really can’t do it, don’t push yourself too hard. We can continue moving forward for a while.”
“Maybe we will find Kid in a while, isn’t that the case just now…”
“I saw him!”
Pamela suddenly said, and then immediately opened her eyes.
“I saw Kid!”
Barbara was overjoyed when she heard the news and hurriedly asked, “Where did he go?”
Pamela shook her head with a smile on her face.
“He’s near us now…”
“Hey, two beautiful young ladies, it’s very easy to encounter danger on the road if you head home this late.”
Before Pamela could finish speaking, a warm and familiar voice interrupted her.
The two women turned around quickly.
Sure enough, Phantom Kid had appeared behind them at some point. And the only thing that remained the same, apart from the slight smirk on his lips, was the white cloak that floated without any wind.
Ah, and of course, those monocles with unscientific backlighting.
Barbara was the first to react and called out.
Pamela woke up right after, and then she made a move that shocked everyone present.
Pamela rushed to Mathison with a brisk pace and threw herself into his arms.
Then, just as Mathison was about to push her away, Pamela whispered into his ear, “I don’t suppose you want Barbara to know who you are. And by the way, I know where the fusion reactor, alongside the truck, is…”
These two sentences obliged Mathison to freeze for a moment, and he glared at Pamela without saying a word.
“If you want me to cooperate with you, then put your arms around my waist.”
“I know it will make you very unhappy, but…only in this case can I enjoy your hug, even if it’s fake, please forgive my selfishness…”
Mathison glanced at Pamela with mixed emotions. What kind of emotion would push her to do this?
He was silent, with a smile on his face, his hands stretched out to Pamela’s back, one arm wrapped around her slender waist, and the other hand caressing it
All his movements were so natural and skilled.
But then again, Pamela’s shape was really good, even though she was wearing two layers of clothes, he could still feel the softness and size of her…
Barbara, who was watching from the side, couldn’t help but feel a tinge of envy, and at the same time had a feeling of being deceived.
“Looking at them like this, could it be that Pamela is already with Kid… Damn, I thought that her love would remain without fruit before and felt bad for her, but I never thought they would ……”
It turns out that the smart person was herself!
Recalling that not long ago, Pamela pretended to tell her that she was envious of her relationship with Mathison.
What a lie!
So, Pamela turned out to be such a woman?
“Ahem, Pamela, don’t forget we still have a business to do!”
Obviously, the scene in front of her irritated Barbara perfectly, and she interrupted the two of them with a gloomy face.
Mathison released his hands at the right time and gestured to Pamela with his eyes, “That’s enough, don’t be greedy.”
Pamela pouted and stepped back to Barbara’s side.
What happened next was simple.
After a brief explanation by the two women, Mathison finally knew the ins and outs of their presence here.
It has to be said that it is good news that the location of the statue organ is already known.
It saved Mathison a lot of time.
Then, led by Barbara and Pamela, Mathison came to the location of the four statues.
It’s just that there seems to be a strong sour smell along the way. It’s unknown who had secretly eaten a lemon.
Probably an illusion.
