Xinghe smiled. "Do you think you can live if you don't answer?"
"Since I'm dead either way, why should I give you the satisfaction" Ryan flared up thinking about his men that had died.
"Fine, if that's your wish, then I'll fulfil it for you." Sam raised his gun.
Xinghe stopped him suddenly. "Give him the gold."
"What?" Sam was shocked.
Xinghe repeated herself, "Give him the gold bars as promised."
Sam understood what Xinghe's meant. Even though he was reluctant, he still heaved up the chest and dropped it in front of Ryan.
Ryan looked at the chest and asked, "What's the meaning of this?"
"Tell me where Charlie is and you can walk away with this chest of gold," Xinghe answered coldly.
Ryan widened his eyes in shock and asked with obvious disbelief, "If I tell you, you'll let me go with all this gold?"
"That's right, this is also your only chance so don't play any tricks on me."
"You'll really let me go?" Ryan was still skeptical.
"Do you have any other choice than to believe me?" Xinghe questioned. Ryan was quiet; she was right, this was the only chance he had.
"Fine, I'll tell you!" Ryan came to a decision. He grabbed at the chest and held on to it guardedly, "Charlie is in Barron's hands!"
"What" Sam's gang thought they heard him wrongly. Charlie is in Barron's hands
Even Xinghe was surprised by this revelation. After all, Charlie had helped Barron more than once before and Barron was a General. What kind of use he would have for capturing Charlie?
"Why does Barron have him?" Xinghe asked solemnly.
Ryan shook his head. "I have no idea. I only know that he has Charlie, I have no idea why."
"Then what else you do know?"
Ryan thought about it before answering, "Barron is also selling drugs, the Grey Rats have helped him smuggle drugs once or twice."
"No wonder he values your people so much!" Sam concluded. "What else?"
"That's all," Ryan hugged the chest and asked hesitatingly, "I've told you everything I know, can I go now?"
"You can." Xinghe nodded. Ryan got up immediately and hobbled towards a car parked not far away with his injured leg.
Wolf stared at his retreating shadow and frowned. "Are you sure it's a good idea to let him go?"
"He has so much gold on him. If he's lucky, he might rise again - but I doubt he is that lucky," Xinghe said softly, not at all worried that Ryan would come back for revenge. After all, he needed to be alive to do that.
"Let's go, we will return to the house for now," Xinghe said and turned to leave.
Suddenly, the leader of the mercenaries called her, "Miss Xia."
Xinghe turned to look at him. "Yes?"
The leader whispered, "I have some business to deal with, I'll be back in a bit. Can you give me some off-duty time?"
Xinghe stared at the leader and the leader didn't move his eyes away, not at all afraid that Xinghe could read his thoughts.
"Sure," Xinghe allowed without giving it much thought.
"Thank you," The leader nodded in appreciation and his gaze turned coldly down the direction Ryan had left.
