Phantom Kid in the World of American Comics - Chapter 83
“So, the person you like is Phantom Kid?”
After helping Mathison clean up, Barbara asked affirmatively.
Before getting along, Pamela has told Barbara her story. Barbara naturally knew who was the person who saved Pamela from the abyss.
“Kid, hmm… he rarely does something this good.”
Looking at Pamela’s lonely expression, Barbara felt a bit sympathetic towards her.
She is not the same as the group of fans who like Kid. She is truly caught in the web of love. This is an emotion that only a woman would understand.
“No one knows the true nature of Phantom Kid. Plus, he is a very sneaky person, and it is so difficult to meet him. Being in love with such a person, you must be very sad.”
“Actually, it’s okay, at least I don’t regret my choice.”
Pamela put away her low mood and said with a strong smile.
“If you ask me, that thief who stole your heart should be responsible for it… but he has to realize first that his actions are a deformed way to bring justice.”
Barbara clenched her fist and said.
“I do not think that Phantom Kid’s justice is deformed.”
Pamela replied with a frown as soon as Barbara finished her sentence.
“Ahem… I think that this topic is a little too heavy, it is better if we change it.”
Mathison coughed lightly, trying to stop the two women from continuing their discussion further.
“That’s right, talking to you guys about this must affect your mood, sorry.”
Pamela said apologetically.
“Don’t say that, Pamela. I’m the one who shouldn’t have brought up this topic.”
Then, the three of them finished their lunch in silence.
“The cafeteria at NYU is not bad, right, just a little bit more expensive than the one in Gotham University.”
Pamela commented with a smile.
“Well, but the cheeseburger patty is also a little thicker than at Gotham University.”
Barbara nodded, then turned to Pamela after glancing eagerly at Mathison.
“You should try Mathison’s cooking. He’s the best at making Chinese food, and many times I can’t help but think there’s no food in the world better than what he cooks.”
“Is that so? I must try it if I have the chance, assuming that Mathison is willing to cook for a woman other than you.”
Pamela marveled, in America, it is a miracle to find a young man able to cook. In fact, girls cook way more, but sometimes they would rather order pizza or go to a fast-food restaurant.
Barbara interrupted her with a red face, and while Pamela was looking at her, she couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
“Hey, Barbara, you’re too shy, that’s not how an American girl should behave.”
Pamela looked at Barbara with a look as if to tell her that she should be more competitive.
“We have a long day ahead of us, shouldn’t we think about where to go?”
Barbara ignored Pamela’s looks and changed the subject.
“Mathison, what do you think, don’t always sit there speechlessly”
“I think it’s okay. We are only in New York occasionally, we should really have some good time. Only that we can’t afford to spend too much.”
“Well, then let me, as a schoolmate, be your guide.”
Pamela lifted the red hair around her ear and said.
So, under the guidance of Pamela, the three of them strolled around many places in Manhattan Island, such as the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Broadway, the Natural History Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and so on.
In fact, Mathison has long strolled through it.
Pamela took really good care of her hometown students, picking the location of all the famous attractions, while the expenses were not even high, or sometimes were even free.
And so, the nightfall arrived.
The chosen place was in Queens, a very famous steakhouse, and the price was very affordable.
After all, the per capita spending in Manhattan is too high.
After dinner, Pamela wanted to go straight back to school, but Barbara felt a bit underwhelmed.
The same goes for Mathison, except that he kept his mouth shut.
With the company of two beautiful women, whatever activities you do will make you feel good.
“Not far from here is Roosevelt Island. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park is a great setting, just right for an evening breeze.”
Pamela said after thinking about the nearby attractions.
“Let’s just go there for a stroll, and then go back to school afterwards, by then it’s just about time for Mathison to go tutoring.”
It was kind of interesting to think that Pamela would remember the time that Mathison mentioned before
“Well, it’s still about two hours away, so you should be on time, right?”
Barbara asked, looking at Mathison.
“Don’t worry, there’s still plenty of time.”
Mathison gestured to her to put her mind at ease.
Then, several people walked toward Roosevelt Park.
Roosevelt Island is an important location connecting Manhattan Island, Queens, and Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park. It is located at the southern end of this long narrow island.
The three, including Mathison, walked on the road and passed the subway station.
A mile or so further on would lead them to the park gates.
A rather strange point is that this point is not particularly late, but there is basically no one on the street, and the further you go towards the park, the more obvious it becomes.
When almost at the park gate, Pamela suddenly paused for a split second before continuing on, and her steps were noticeably faster than before.
“Pamela, are you not feeling well?”
Barbara asked worriedly.
“I’m fine, don’t worry.”
Pamela smiled gently as she told Barbara so.
Only Mathison noticed that Pamela’s face became very dark and ugly for a moment, but it quickly returned to normal.
Mathison’s eyes narrowed slightly. He knew that things were not as simple as Barabara thought.
He did not feel malice in Pamela’s body, indicating that the hostility she unconsciously erupted just now was not directed at him or Barbara.
Then because of whom?
Thinking of the strange absence of people near Roosevelt Park again, Mathison raised his guard.
Especially when they saw that “construction ahead, no entry” sign was put on the entrance to the park, things became even more interesting.
“Are there regulations prohibiting visitors from entering the park during construction?”
At this moment, Barbara also sensed that something was wrong.
Besides, there was no sound of construction coming from the park.
“Pamela, Mathison, it looks like we’re not having much luck, why don’t you guys leave first? I’ll just stroll around Roosevelt Island by myself, you all have your business, no need to accompany me together.”
Mathison took Barbara’s hand and smiled, “Since we’re all here, it’s better to move together.”
“Don’t run! Stop!”
Suddenly, a shout came out from the park.
Mathison and Barbara looked at each other and tacitly rushed in at the same time.
Then, they saw a man in black was running towards here at speed, holding a sharp weapon in his hand.
And behind the man in black were three men in green trench coats in pursuit.
Mathison recognized them, the same ones who ran out of Mo’s dojo that day.
“Those in front, catch that man in black, you can get five million!”
