Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 231
Although one may not detect anything abnormal when conversing with Jade at first, after a careful observation, it can be found that the little girl’s eyes were flickering erratically.
Jackie Chan stared at Jade suspiciously for a while, but in the end, he didn’t see anything wrong.
From what he knew about Jade, the possibility of her sneaking here alone is at least 99%.
“Okay, Uncle Jackie, aren’t you going to catch Phantom Kid? We’d better not stay outside for too long.”
Jade didn’t want to listen to Jackie Chan’s nagging, she just wanted to hurry into the museum.
She couldn’t wait to see Phantom Kid.
Of course, Jade knew that such a clumsy lie could not be concealed from Jackie Chan, but so what, for a child her age, having what she wanted was more important than anything else.
“Okay, but I have to call Uncle Chan first. If he comes back here later, he won’t be able to get in. Sheriff Stacy only let me out to pick up people once.”
Jackie Chan sighed and said, he really didn’t have time to spend here, so he had to believe Jade’s words.
If Uncle Chan is still in San Francisco, then he can rest assured. After all, Uncle Chan is not young, and a city with a strong sense of technology like New York is not suitable for him.
As for Jade…
Let’s just wait till this thing is over to deal with her!
Jackie Chan took Jade’s hand and walked to the door of the museum.
When the two left, a sneaky woman followed closely behind.
Sure enough, the guards knew Jackie Chan and did not stop him, but just routinely checked the items he was carrying.
Jade is very clever, she maintained a well-behaved look.
“Mr. Chan, is this your niece? She looks very well-mannered “
Jackie Chan was speechless for a moment, his niece was simply a clever little psycho.
It would be great if she used this ingenuity in her studies.
“But Mr. Chan, you didn’t say that your girlfriend would come too.”
The guard winked at Jackie Chan.
Jackie Chan glanced at the guard inexplicably.
“Yeah, isn’t this beautiful woman following you your girlfriend?”
Jackie Chan’s face changed. There was someone behind him?
He didn’t even notice it at all.
He turned around suddenly, feeling his body sink. Then came a woman’s voice.
Jade stared blankly as a woman she didn’t know pounced on Uncle Jackie.
“Oh, I thought Uncle Jackie had always been a lone wolf, but I didn’t expect him to know such a beautiful lady.”
Jade rolled her eyes, revealing a mischievous smile.
Originally, Jackie Chan planned to break free, but after Viper said a few words to Jackie Chan, he calmed down.
Jackie Chan explained to the guard, “She is not my girlfriend, just a friend I know. Her name is Xiao She.”
Hearing this, the guard suddenly showed an expression of sudden realization and winked at Jackie Chan again.
“I see, man, being able to face off against Phantom Kid will definitely impress the ladies.”
He felt as if this guy had misunderstood something.
Jackie Chan was powerless to complain.
«No, Uncle Jackie is lying.»
Jade was very keen to discover the slightly unnatural expression on Jackie Chan’s face.
She looked at the viper curiously. This big sister seemed to have said something to Uncle Jackie just now. Jade was full of curiosity.
Soon, several people entered the museum.
Jackie Chan took Viper to an empty corridor near the curator’s office, and then took Jade away.
“You said that you have information on Phantom Kid and you want to tell me alone, now is the right time.”
That’s right, the reason Viper made Jackie Chan agree to bring him into the museum was intelligence.
Viper brushed her slender hair with a playful look in her eyes.
“That’s right, Mr. Jackie Chan.”
“The information I’m going to tell you is…”
The viper leaned towards Jackie Chan’s ears, “Phanom Kid has already sneaked in, right among the police!”
“That’s why I could only tell you alone.”
Jackie Chan’s pupils shrank, and he said cautiously, “How did you know, why should I believe you, and who are you?”
“It doesn’t matter who I am, I am not Kid anyway.”
In front of Jackie Chan, Viper pinched her face hard, proving that she did not disguise herself.
Phantom Kid can’t let anyone see his face.
“You should know very well that the best thing Kid is good at is to pretend to be other people. Sheriff Stacy has indeed implemented a smart way to strictly control the museum.”
“There aren’t many visitors at the museum whom Kid can get disguised as, so… why can’t he disguise himself as a police officer?”
“But these police officers came here together after gathering from the New York Police Department, and since yesterday, they have been patrolling in groups, so Kid should not have the opportunity to mix in.”
Jackie Chan looked thoughtful but quickly shook his head.
“How do you know that Phantom Kid wasn’t among the police force coming out of the NYPD?”
Viper said confidently.
Of course, what she said was just unfounded speculation, but she was pretty sure Kid would do such a thing.
This is what she would have done as a thief!
Because if she had that miraculously disguising technique, she would have made that choice herself.
“Even if I believe you, there are so many police officers here, which one is Phantom Kid? If you don’t know this, it doesn’t make sense at all. Instead, people will be suspicious of each other thus giving Kid the opportunity to act.”
Jackie Chan began to believe Viper’s words, but he couldn’t figure out what Viper’s purpose was.
“I have a way to know who Kid is disguised as.”
Viper smiled mysteriously.
After listening to her method, Jackie Chan’s eyes lit up, it was indeed a very inconspicuous but effective method.
Jackie Chan looked serious, glanced at Viper, and asked, “Who are you, why are you telling me this?”
“Just treat me as a private detective. It is the common dream of all detectives in the world to catch Phantom Kid.”
Viper said calmly. As a thief, it couldn’t be easier to deceive Jackie Chan, a kind and simple man.
“Okay, now I’m going to investigate alone. As for you, go to Sheriff Stacy and tell him the way I told you to identify Kid.”
After speaking, Viper waved at Jackie Chan, then turned and left without looking back.
“Kid, If you get caught this time, don’t blame me, although I don’t think this little trick should be enough to get you caught.”
Jackie Chan didn’t know whether to believe Viper or not, but at least, the method she mentioned was feasible, and he was sure that she was not Kid.
So now it seems that the other party should really come to help them.
After thinking about this part, Jackie Chan ran to find George.
After the two figures disappeared in the corridor, a small figure suddenly descended from the ceiling.
When Jackie Chan and Viper were talking, someone was eavesdropping on the ceiling, and they hadn’t found it yet!
“Wow, it turns out she’s a detective who is determined to catch Phantom Kid. That’s cool, I think I’ll have to follow up and see how detectives usually investigate.”
“And, if she’s really good, I’ll have to help Kid…”
The person hiding up the ceiling was Jade, and she slowly and steadily landed on the ground from the air.
In her hand, she held a hexagonal stone with a chicken pattern on it…
