Xiu Mei turned to look at him, "You are free to go, unscathed. Tomorrow night, I'm going to execute the plan. Please walk out and save your life. You have already favored me enough"
Ghost was surprised by her intrepid eyes. She is a marvelous woman, who can fight through every situation without letting her spirit down.
"No matter what, I'm not leaving you alone. Either we are getting out of this mess together or dying together" He spoke firmly.
"I'm not dying" She raised her chin up and said confidently, "I've promised someone to grow old with him… He will come! He will definitely come for me"
He smiled and patted her head, "Fine! We'll go as per your plan. But before that, get some sleep. Yesterday night too you were working on watch"
"No! I've to keep time check when the officials of control room change their shift" She said in a voice that allowed no further discussion and then looked at Zeus' room "Also I want to see when that woman will come out who was send inside his room a while ago"
"Ok! I won't force you, but do take some rest"
After some time, two officers enter inside Zeus' room. She frowned when they didn't knock but used the spare key. Hiding herself behind the pillar Mei saw the girl lying over the shoulder of an officer while the other one quietly closed the door behind him.
She stepped out from her hidden position and looked at the girl….. waiting…waiting…. The girl didn't move much but gave her thumbs up.
With a content smile, Mei walked out of there. She helped the girl being a woman who has experienced something similar in the past and didn't expect anything in return.
FEW HOURS BEFORE
A woman was being forcefully dragged inside Zeus' room by two of his adjutants. According to the gossips she had heard while strolling on the premises, every night a new girl is sent to his room. Today when she saw the crying girl being dragged inside, begging for mercy, her mind wandered to the night seven years back when she was doing exactly that and Feng Dingxiong saved her.
"Useless and stubborn girl, can't believe you are acting the way you do. Consider yourself lucky that a lowly girl like you is being served to our mighty master" Xiu Mei walked up and gave a hard slap on the face of the girl who was struggling to break free from the tight clutches of the officers.
It boosted the ego of Commander Zeus' who was standing not too far… He tried to take a look at the boy but cringed at how dirty he looks. Coal was smudged on his face and clothes.
To hide her face from Zeus, Mei smudged the dark matter from the fireplace.
Mei looked at one of the officers who were dragging the girl to Zeus' room, "Allow me" saying she took the position of the officer and pulled her towards the room.
She was surprised to see how luxurious his room was. In a city like this where people are finding it impossible to afford two meals a day, Zeus was savoring the flavor of expensive whiskey.
"You slut!" Officer slapped the girl when she kicked her legs when he tried to tie her up. Mei stepped up again, "Don't worry sir. I'll handle and knock some sense in her. Please don't dirty your hands, they are not meant for this petty work"
He smiled, feeling satisfied by the buttering and stepped away from the girl. "Fine! I'm standing at the door. Hurry up"
"Please let go of me… Don't take my innocence… It's a sin… I beg you" Hearing her constant pleading Mei placed the girls' hands on her breast and pressed it. "Shhh… Quite! These are boobs! Yes I'm a woman like you"
The girl looked at her with a horrified expression.
"I can help you but only if you'll cooperate with me" Sneaking glances at the door where the officer was standing she gave her an injection and continued talking to her while tying her limbs loosely, "Will you?" When Mei saw her nodding her head she explained her plan as briefly as possible and stepped out of the room.
The injection Mei gave her was sedative which she stole from the pharmacy while scanning the premises. All she wanted the girl was to behave naturally the way she was doing, but this time it will be acting. In order to come out of the wolf's den alive without any suspicion, Xiu Mei asked her to use it at the correct time, without letting him see the injection.
She left the judgment of what is the correct time to the girl herself.
But she instructed the girl to make it look like he has actually done the deed. Under the influence of alcohol, he won't remember anything and would shrug the thought. After all, next day he will be served with a new woman, so why would he bother to pay attention to the activities of the previous night.
Control room officials change their shift three times a day as they have to remain vigilant all the time. While for the other officials their shift changed twice a day.
During the change, the control room remains vacant for a small duration of ten minutes. These ten minutes are more than enough for her to tweak the surveillance until she carry forwards the next part of her plan.
Xiu Mei and ghost shared a secret glance and nodded.
Taking advantage of the change in shift she sneaked inside the control room. She walked hastily towards the control room but wrongly bumped into an officer the moment she pushed open the door.
"F*ck! What the hell is he doing here?" Cursed Xiu Mei as she glanced at the officer. Before he could ask anything or reach for his gun, she leaped forward and snapped his neck before dragging his body behind the couch.
'Mei, only 6 minutes are left. Hurry up'
She started operating more than a few computers, the timer set on her mobile was running out quickly as her fingers flew over the keyboard at a lightning speed to successfully tamper the system and simultaneously look for the chamber where women are locked up.
