At the critical moment, with the help of Jaydon, Bruce was able to catch his breath and raise his gun.
“Ah!” The criminal was shot in the chest and took a few steps back before falling to the ground.
In the blink of an eye, the three robbers were subdued.
The flight attendants looked at the two men in front of them in disbelief.
He did not expect them to be able to deal with the criminals with such ease.
In the economy cabin.
When the three remaining robbers heard the gunshot, they quickly came over to check.
As soon as they appeared, their leader was shot down.
Bruce’s marksmanship was very accurate. He almost never missed.
Unfortunately, there were only six bullets in the gun.
Now the bullets were all spent.
When the two criminals saw their four accomplices lying in a pool of blood, they immediately raised their guns to take revenge.
“You’re courting death…”
Bruce, Jaydon, and the others were all shocked, picking up one of the criminals and using his body as a blockage.
“Ah, ah, help!” The air stewardess exclaimed and the passengers all screamed in fear.
The two criminals took a step closer, preparing to fire a second round.
Six or seven more men stood out from behind them.
Bang! Bang! Crack!
Shane, Alvin, and the others attacked from behind, catching the two criminals off guard.
They were all bodyguards of Bruce, so naturally they were very skilled.
In less than three minutes, the two criminals were also dealt with.
Shane hurried forward to check. “Mr. Everett, are you injured?”
“No, it’s just some minor grazes. Nothing serious,” Bruce said as he subconsciously glanced at Jaydon.
However, he could not bring himself to express his gratitude.
Jaydon’s face tensed up, pretending to not notice.
In any case, he wasn’t deliberately helping Bruce. It was just that the situation was critical. He did it for the larger picture.
Bruce was Joanna’s most beloved man and the father of her child. Even if it was for Joanna, Jaydon could not leave Bruce in the lurch.
It took less than twenty minutes.
A plane crash was unavoidable.
The terrorists’ original plan was to hijack a plane and crash into the tallest and most luxurious landmark in Saumi Cradia, the Star Century Building.
However, they had never expected to be defeated before they could attain their goal by a couple of men.
The flight attendants took some time to react.
“Clap, clap, clap.” The surviving passengers applauded Bruce and Jaydon.
“Thank you for saving all our passengers.”
Bruce frowned. “We were just trying to save ourselves.”
Everyone was still in shock. They felt like they had just escaped death.
“Thump, thump, thump…”
The plane was flying when it suddenly started descending rapidly.
The aircraft started shaking and jerking uncontrollably.
The criminals’ bullets had pierced through the circuit board and control panel of the plane.
The plane was losing control and gradually deviating from the original flight path.
“Gosh, is the plane going to crash?”
“Why is it shaking so badly?”
“Boohoo… I’m still so young. I don’t want to die yet…”
The passengers immediately started panicking again, their eyes filled with fear.
The air stewardesses were also flustered. They quickly comforted the passengers through the radio. “The plane is only encountering slight turbulence. There’s nothing to worry about.
“Please take your seats and don’t move around.”
Buzz, buzz, buzz!
The plane suddenly fell again, almost jolting everyone out of their seats.
“Where’s the parachute? I want a parachute…”
In the cockpit.
The captain was also panicking, nervously controlling the plane while radioing the aviation service station.
“Palisrian City flight to Saumi Cradia. Flight HD307 is malfunctioning. Please get ready to land.”
“Because of the damage to the plane’s engine, we need to land urgently.”
“There may be bumps or vibrations during the descent. Everyone, please remain calm.”
Some passengers were already crying in fear. Others even took out their phones and notebooks, preparing to jot down their last words. “God bless us!”
Bruce and Jaydon were also a little nervous.
They shared a look, feeling a wave of indescribable nausea rising from the bottom of their hearts.
“I really didn’t expect to die with a nuisance like you.”
“Shut up, you jinx.”
“How can you still be in the mood to argue at a time like this?”
Bruce sighed, a trace of sadness appearing in his heart.
Even if he died, he wanted to find Joanna. Only after confirming that she was safe could he die in peace.
“We’re about to die. Let’s be optimistic!”
“We won’t be lonely on the path of death.”
Bruce’s throat froze. He originally wanted to curse Jaydon back, but the plane suddenly fell again.
The captain could only land at the nearest airport.
In the cockpit.
estail of fo
The captain used all the methods he could think of to save the situation.
Finally, with the captain’s tireless efforts, the plane rose again, albeit flying unevenly.
After another arduous ten minutes, they arrived at the nearest airport.
The plane prepared to make an emergency landing…
This was Celia, Saumi Cradia’s neighbor. It was also a very small country, but experienced internal strife all
As a result of the war, the country’s GDP fell sharply, making it the poorest country in the Medsland region.
However, since the plane was malfunctioning, this airport was their only hope.
At a height of three to four yards from the ground, the captain finally lost control of the aircraft.
The plane landed heavily on the ground, gliding a few hundred yards before finally stopping.
The moment the plane stopped, the passengers stayed still for a full minute or two. After everyone confirmed that they were safe, they finally cried tears of joy.
“Phew, God bless.”
“We have landed safely. We have landed safely.” The passengers were scared to death. After experiencing such a terrifying moment, many couldn’t help but cry.
“Everyone, please get off the plane quickly and gather at the terminal.”
When the passengers heard the announcement, they rushed off the plane, not even bothering with their luggage.
Ten minutes later.
Bruce and Jaydon also got off the plane.
“How far are we from the capital?” Bruce frowned and asked the airport staff in Antlenish.
A flight attendant replied, “About 430 miles away. We’ve already informed the airline. Another plane will be sent to pick
“Please forgive us for the inconvenience caused by this flight.”
“How long will the new plane take to arrive?” Bruce asked with a frown.
“It will take at least two days. Many passengers got injured and will have to be sent to the hospital.”
“Will it take at least two days? Can’t it be faster?”
The staff smiled politely. “Sir, this is already the earliest.”
“Then it’s alright.”
“430 miles…” Bruce frowned in thought.
430 miles. If he drove fast, it would only take him seven to eight hours.
However, it would take at least two days for the airline to send a plane over.
He really couldn’t wait.
Moreover, there was no telling what would happen in two days’ time. The airline was notorious for being slow.
He had only booked the flight out of necessity.
“Please stay at the airport and don’t move around…” The airport staff were busy taking care of the passengers.
“Shane, go rent a car.”
“Mr. Everett. This is a small city in Celia, poor and desolate. Besides, this country is a riot zone now. There’s war everywhere.”
“That’s right! Why don’t we wait for the airline to send a plane over?”
Bruce only turned angrier. “Didn’t you hear me?”
“Yes, yes, yes. I’ll go find a car now.”
An hour later.
Shane had returned with an almost obsolete old car.
Apart from the four wheels that were intact, there was almost no other part that was not damaged. Either the paint had fallen off or the iron sheet was missing. There was not even a window glass or headlights.
Bruce glanced at the car and immediately turned ashen with anger.
“I told you to find a car. This is what
With a constipated look on his face, Shane said, “Mr. Everett. It was already extremely difficult to get this car.”
“That’s right. There are wars here all year round, with various warlords fighting for territory. The civilians are barely able to save their own skins, and their economy and productivity have all stopped. Even this car had to be bought at a high price.”
“Forget it, forget it. Let’s go quickly! We’ll think of something on the way.” Bruce frowned.
He had never been in such a lousy car before.
As soon as he sat down, his butt was pricked by something.
“Ugh, damn it!” Bruce cursed, quickly getting up again.
Which bastard put nails in the seats?”
He had sat down in a hurry, and a nail had pierced a hole in his hip. It was so painful that he wanted to hit someone.
“Mr. Everett, did you get pricked?”
“What do you think?”
Shane and the two other bodyguards looked at Bruce in horror.
Mr. Everett was covering his butt so tightly. Could it be that he had been stabbed in “that” place?
“Hurry up and drive.”
“Hum! Hum!” Shane started the old car.
After a long time, the engine finally started.
“Tut, tut, tut…”
The clutch released, and the car made a tractor-like sound.
The car shook with every step, like an old cow panting.
“Do you even know how to drive?”
Shane was already nervous. Now that Mr. Everett was throwing a tantrum, he felt even more afraid.
In his nervousness, his legs loosened from the clutch. “Tut, tut…”
The old car stalled.
He was unable to start it again.
Bruce glared at Shane.
Shane was so frightened that his forehead was covered in sweat. The more anxious he was, the more he could not start the
Bruce was so angry that he kicked the wheel. “Useless, all of you are useless.”
He really wanted to hit someone.
“Hiss…” The range of his movements was too big, hurting his injury again.
Bruce was so furious his face turned green.
A sidecar motorcycle passed by and stopped in front of him.
Jaydon took off his helmet and glanced at Bruce. “What a coincidence! We meet again.”
Bruce turned to look at Jaydon and turned even angrier. “Jaydon, hmph, you’re really persistent. Why do I bump into you everywhere I go?”
