The First Interstellar Energy Gambler - Chapter 130.1
Chapter 130: Back to the Capital Planet
It was the middle of the night, the cruise ship was on its way back, and everyone was resting in their cabins, but the light brain in Xing Mo’s hand vibrated slightly.
Xing Mo immediately sat up and quickly pressed a series of commands on the light screen to connect it to the monitoring center of the cruise ship, but the screen was completely dark. Someone had deliberately turned off the monitoring system.
However, Xing Mo didn’t show a surprised expression. Obviously, this kind of thing happening was within his set of expectations. He pressed a series of new commands on his light screen again, and a monitoring screen appeared shortly after.
What appeared in the picture was the corridor in front of the confinement room. This camera was an infrared monitor specially installed by Xing Mo. He had suspected that someone in the patrol team was collaborating with the assassins, but for the time being he had yet to find out who it was. Just in case, Xing Mo had secretly installed the infrared monitor he was currently tapped into. Once someone approached the confinement room, a silent alarm would be triggered.
It can be clearly seen in the picture that the door of the confinement room has been opened, and the people in the confinement room were missing. Apparently the group of wanted criminals who were being detained in the confinement room had escaped with the help of the traitor.
Xing Mo narrowed his eyes slightly. He didn’t expect these people to move so fast. He used his highest control authority to forcefully restart the cruise ship’s main system. After the restart was completed, he would be able to fully control the ship.
Soon after the restart was completed, Xing Mo turned on the ship-wide alert.
The loud sound of the alarm immediately rang through the entire patrol ship, and all the patrol team members who were still sleeping woke up and quickly rushed out of their rooms with their weapons drawn.
“Attention to all members, attention to all members, the fugitives have escaped from the confinement room! The fugitives have escaped from the confinement room! I have closed all gates and am checking the surveillance. Each team member immediately stand under the nearest surveillance camera and report you positions to me. Blind spots will be checked one by one later. They must not be allowed to escape! I repeat…” Xing Mo’s voice was broadcast throughout the ship through the ship’s intercom, the gates of each passage were forcibly closed, and the elevators were locked and could not be used. All that was left was to catch the criminals who had become like fish in a barrel.
Xing Mo knew that these fugitives could never have escaped by themselves and must have been helped by someone from the patrol team. They had only just come out of the confinement room and wouldn’t have been able to run far. He closed the gate and blocked their way out.
The reason for letting the team members report their positions was simple. The team members’ rest cabins were on the upper deck while the confinement room was at the bottom of the patrol ship. He had given orders previously that they and couldn’t approach the confinement room without his express permission.
Therefore, at this time, if someone was found to be located at the lower level of the ship or wasn’t standing under the surveillance to report their position, then that was the traitor.
Xing Mo maximized the monitoring screen. The person on duty was on the main ship bridge, and the two people responsible for patrol were on the upper deck. The other team members were basically all in the rest area, except for two people.
“Gu SiYan, what are you doing on the lower floor?” Xing Mo saw Gu SiYan standing under the surveillance device that monitored the stairs on the second floor and immediately initiated a call to him.
Gu SiYan explained in an eager voice, “Captain! I’m not a traitor! I couldn’t sleep and suddenly heard a small noise next door. I went out to have a look and found that Li Tian was sneaking out of his cabin. I followed him here! He’s on the lower floor right now!”
Xing Mo believed Gu SiYan’s words, because there was another person who hadn’t reported their position for a long time, which was none other than Li Tian.
“Are you sure he’s still down there?”
“I’m sure! I didn’t dare to follow too closely, so I waited here and didn’t follow them. I’ve been keeping watch over the stairs, but he never came back up.” There were four floors below. Gu Siyan was worried that Li Tian would hear footsteps, so he deliberately kept a distance from him. Before the alarm went off, he had been standing on the second floor for a few minutes and had planned to wait until Li Tian was unprepared to see what he was doing.
“Since there is doubt, why not report it immediately?!”
Gu SiYan bit his lip without answering.
In fact, Xing Mo could guess a general idea without him answering. Gu SiYan must have guessed that Li Tian was a traitor and so had the idea to personally catch Li Tian himself in order to avenge the sacrificed of his innocent crew mates.
“Wait where you are, and I’ll take someone down right away.”
Xing Mo left the room, gathered the team members in place one by one, and then headed towards the lower floor together.
At this moment, Xing Mo’s light brain suddenly rang. He took a look and found that the person requesting the communication was Gu SiYan.
“What’s the matter?” Xing Mo accepted his communication request.
“Captain! I heard the sound of fighting below, the situation has changed, I request to go downstairs immediately!”
Xing Mo was stunned when he heard the words. He didn’t expect them to start fighting. He didn’t know what happened…
