In a room, there were a few computers. Every screen was further split into nine sections, surveying various positions in the district. For example, the lift, the underground garage, etc.
All the surveillance cameras in the district were connected to this room.
However, this wasn't a monitoring room. It was a house in the district that had three bedrooms and a living room.
Due to the fact that the curtains of this house were drawn every day and there were occasionally strangers entering and exiting the house, someone in the district thought that there were illegal activities going on in the house and called the police. Yesterday, when the police arrived at the doorstep of this house, the people in the house were stunned.
The police left only after the people in the house showed them their identifications.
One had to admit that this incident was laughable. Now that the people in the house thought about it, they were speechless.
The residents in this district were comparable to the omnipotent residents of Chaoyang District. Their level of vigilance was extremely high.
"How did they discover us?" A short-haired girl looked at the monitor screen impatiently.
Initially, they had been observing Ren Baqian's house with binoculars from a house across the street. They could observe Ren Baqian the moment he returned home. One day, however, their higher-ups suddenly told them that they had already been exposed. As a result, they quickly moved to this house and stared at monitor screens every day.
"Who knows? Don't forget the higher-ups' reminder, they aren't ordinary individuals," a spectacled young man said. He took out a cylindrical metallic object and sucked on it. Following which, he blew out a huge cloud of smoke. After a while, the room became paradise-like.
"The smoke from this thing smells so much better than cigarettes'!" the short-haired girl turned around and said.
The spectacled young man spread his arms and replied, "Actually, I wanted to smoke cigarettes, but after seeing how big your reaction was, I decided to smoke with this instead. However, I now realize that this kind of electronic cigarette is not bad either, it's much better than I thought."
"Not bad, you're quite tactful!" The short-haired girl leaned on the table. "Previously, both of them suddenly appeared in the house. Are there really superhumans in this world?"
"How do I know? Boss might know, so you can ask him." The spectacled young man took out a glass bottle filled with liquid and used a dropper to obtain some of that liquid. Then, he deposited the liquid into the electronic cigarette. Following which, he began to blow out clouds of smoke again.
Looking at the pleasantly dazed look on his face, those who did not know he was smoking an electronic cigarette would think that he was taking drugs.
"They are back." The short-haired girl quickly patted the spectacled young man. A frame at the top-left corner of the screen showed someone opening a window in the house.
"Could it be the housekeepers?" the young man looked at the screen and asked. The surveillance camera had a bottom-to-top view, hence they couldn't see what was going on in the house. The surveillance camera was placed in such a way that it wouldn't be discovered.
"It can't be, the housekeepers would not come at this time," the short-haired girl replied.
Following which, both of them began to look at the monitor attentively.
Now that their target had appeared, both of them had to take note of when he disappeared again. Previously, this wasn't a difficult task. All they needed to do was to look through binoculars to see when their target disappeared. However, they now had to keep staring at the monitor.
This was why the short-haired girl had a resentful look on her face.
"What's the point of staring at them?" The short-haired girl did not understand what was going. In the past, she automatically knew what to do whenever she was tasked with a mission. This time around, all she needed to do was to stare at the screen and report the daily routine of Ren Baqian to her superiors.
It had been a few months, and their higher-ups had not given them any new instructions.
"Go and ask Boss. I don't know anything."
Naturally, Ren Baqian did not know his convenient lie would cause these two people to resentfully stay in a small house for more than 20 days.
After opening the window, Ren Baqian discovered that the weather today was quite good.
It was the beginning of May on Earth. The temperature during the day was more than 20 degrees Celsius. The sun shone brightly, and it was the best time to take a stroll outside.
After he opened the window, he turned around and heard the sound of a door closing. The empress had entered her room to change her clothes.
She did not even finish eating her ice cream. Ren Baqian could tell that she couldn't wait to leave the house.
It was very hard to believe that the empress was so interested in amusement parks.
By the time Ren Baqian went upstairs to put on a hoodie, a pair of jeans, and his sneakers, the empress was already sitting on the sofa in her dress eating her ice cream.
Indeed, the empress would never disregard eating; it was a matter of priority.
"Let's go to the amusement park!" Ren Baqian snapped his fingers. The empress threw a pillow at his face.
"I always feel that that action is very disrespectful!" The empress looked at Ren Baqian from the corner of her eyes and nibbled on her ice cream.
"How is it disrespectful? It's an action that reinforces my tone. For example, you have eaten enough." Ren Baqian snapped his fingers again. A pillow hit his face once more.
"Your Majesty, it's time to set off!" Ren Baqian bowed and reached out his right hand to hold the empress's hand by her fingers.
"Not bad!" The empress was very satisfied, and she conveniently helped Ren Baqian straighten out his cap. She had washed her hands just now because they had become sticky after being stained with melted ice cream.
They left the house and boarded the elevator. On the seventh floor, the elevator stopped and a young girl walked in. When she saw Ren Baqian and the empress, she was shocked. Following which, she gave them a bow.
"Thank you for saving my life the other time," the girl thanked Ren Baqian. She had visited Ren Baqian at his house to invite him for a meal, but was rejected. Even now, she still felt scared whenever she thought about the accident.
Therefore, she wanted to express her gratitude when she saw Ren Baqian.
The girl's chest was quite big, and Ren Baqian took a sweeping glance at it.
"Smack!" The empress gave Ren Baqian's nose a slap.
"Ouch!" Ren Baqian groaned in pain as he grasped his nose. The empress wasn't looking at him, so how did she know where he was looking at?
Following which, Ren Baqian felt his nose turn moist. As he touched his nose, his hand got stained with blood. His nose was indeed bleeding. Quickly, Ren Baqian raised his head upward and took out a banknote. He rolled it up and stuffed it into his nose.
"What did you hit me for?" After stuffing the banknote up his nose, Ren Baqian talked with a muffled voice. Just now, he clearly saw that the empress had not turned around to look at him.
"Intuition!" the empress turned and replied to Ren Baqian.
Ren Baqian, "..."
Your Majesty, you have watched too much Final Destination.
You just feel like giving me a slap, right? You simply don't care whether or not I did anything wrong.
That girl looked at Ren Baqian and the empress and snickered. When she saw Ren Baqian glaring at her, she quickly apologized, "Sorry, I can't help it."
After alighting from the elevator, Ren Baqian looked at the reflection in the empress's sunglasses. With the banknote stuffed up his nose, he looked like an elephant now.
Ren Baqian drove to the largest amusement park in Shencheng. From outside, he could already hear the rumble and screams coming from the roller coaster. The empress's attention was immediately captured by the roller coaster.
"It's that one!" The empress's eyes lit up. It seemed that Final Destination 3 had left a deep impression on her, so much so that she headed straight for the roller coaster upon arriving at the amusement park.
Surprisingly, the amusement park was filled with people. Ren Baqian wondered whether or not it was because of the good weather. There were many parents that brought their children here to have fun. There were also many couples going on dates here.
Ren Baqian subconsciously held the empress's hand as well.
