HA\LF: Dead nor Alive

Chapter 144 Getting an alibi.

“How coincidence that Victor himself is in the building right now, should we go and talk to him?” Faye asked as she looked at them.

Archie glanced at Eve then he glanced at Ruby who stared at them both the moment Faye asked that question.

“Sure, why not,” Eve answered with a smile on her face.

“Alright, lets go down, hes on the ground floor,” Faye said as she stood up and put all the documents on the drawer and locked it.

They all went to the ground floor and Archie was a bit nervous because if Victor really an underling of one of the Adams, he didnt want to be exposed. The chance the Adam who owned Victor was the first Adam was really high and that was the only reason he got nervous.

Faye was the first one to exit the lift, and then the others followed her from behind.

A man with black hair and green eyes in a grey suit was accompanied with a group of people in black suit, they were all Axis Humans and were stronger than Ruby. One thing that made Archie a bit relieved was because Victor wasnt the Adam, and that meant Victor was an underling.

“Good evening, Mister Victor,” Faye said as she walked toward him and saluted him.

“Lieutenant Colonel Faye, Im sorry if Im taking your time,” Victor said as he walked toward them.

“No, I was about to ask you about the mission as well, so this is a perfect timing,” Faye replied as she shook her head. “Should we go somewhere else to talk about the mission?” Faye asked.

Victor hummed as he looked at everyone and then his eyes stopped when he looked at Eve.

“Is she in your team?” Victor asked as he pointed at Eve and his gaze was enough to annoy Archie. Not just him, but Eve was disgusted by the way he looked at her.

“Yes, she is. Her name is Eve and shes in fact the strongest member that we have,” Faye introduced Eve to Victor. Faye turned her head to look at Eve but Eve stared at her dead in the eye as if she was angry at her.

“Eve, huh? What an interesting name,” Victor said while staring at Eve. “Shall we use the meeting room?” Victor asked and looked at Faye.

“Yes, after you, Mister Victor,” Faye replied with a smile and then she looked back at Eve again and she was still making the same expression.

Archie, Ruby, and Vincent glanced at Eve who looked pissed at Faye, they knew why she was so pissed. It wasnt really Fayes fault to mentioned Eves name to Victor since she knew nothing about what was going on.

They entered the meeting room and all of them sat down at the oval table.

“So, what do you want to talk about the mission? Have you decided?” Victor asked Faye and kept stealing glances at Eve.

“Yes, we decided to go and hunt for the Ex-Human and we are ready to go,” Faye answered as she nodded her head.

“Great! Where are you going to look for her? Do you have any ideas or guesses where shes at?” Victor asked and looked at the others.

“We believe for someone like her to be able to do something like that, we believe shes a strong one and she might be equal to a King-type parasite. So, we discussed about this earlier and believe that she might be in FalCon-1 right now,” Faye answered with her arms crossed.

“FalCon-1? Are you sure that she will be there? Its going to take a lot of effort to get there,” Victor asked as he pressed his hands together and put them in front of his mouth.

“We dont know, but its worth to try and even if shes not there, it would be best to check FalCon-1 as well since it has been a while since anyone step their foot in there,” Faye answered as she exhaled deeply.

Victor hummed as he nodded his head but he didnt sound convinced at all.

“Maybe you should go and check somewhere else because she might be still around here,” Victor said. “She could be hiding in the forest on the west, and maybe shes inside one of those caves that leads to the dept of the Earth,” Victor continued.

“Yes, we have talked about it as well, thats why our final destination would be FalCon-1. Before that, we will be checking everything on the west and divided into many teams to make it easier and faster to find where she went,” Ruby explained and then she looked at Victor with curiosity. “Is there a reason why you dont want us to go to FalCon-1?”

“Not really, but its going to be a waste of time,” Victor answered with his eyebrows raised.

“A waste of time? What if shes there? Have you checked FalCon-1 after the incident?” Ruby asked with her eyebrows furrowed and started to feel suspicious about why Victor didnt want them to go to FalCon-1.

Victor looked at Faye and immediately lowered his hands. “Oh, no, its just I think its too far for her to be there in the first place,” Victor answered.

“But she could fly, I dont think theres such a thing being too far,” Faye replied and kept staring at him with confusion.

“Ah, youre right. Then its possible that shes in FalCon-1,” Victor said as he cleared his throat. “Well then, since its already late, how about we discuss about it again tomorrow morning? I still have another thing that need to be taken care of, and I will ask them to prepare all the necessity for the mission tomorrow as well,”

Victor left the room and didnt say a single word after he said that, and he looked a bit panicking when he got confronted by Faye. Ruby, Vincent, and Archie looked at each other and thought that Victor might know something.

“Faye, can we have a talk?” Eve said as she stared at Faye.

“Yeah, sure,” Faye nodded her head and knew that Eve was pissed at her for some reason. Before she could what made Eve pissed at her, Eve stood up and approached her.

“What the fuck was that?” Eve asked as she put her right hand on the table in front of Faye and stared down at her.

“What do you mean? Whats wrong?” Faye stared back with a puzzled look.

“Why did you introduce me to that guy? Do you think I like it when someone introduced me to someone who I dont care?” Eve asked with her eyebrows raised.

“I thought you would be fine with it,” Faye replied as she gulped nervously.

Eve scoffed and held back from grabbing Faye on the neck by clenching her fists. “Dont ever introduce me or say my name to people that I dont know. Even if I want them to know who I am,, I can do it myself,” Eve said as she leaned her head toward Faye.

“Okay, Im sorry. I wont do that again,” Faye replied.

Eve kept staring at Faye and didnt say anything for quite a while, and then she walked away and sat back to her seat. Archie, Ruby, Vincent, and Nova were silently stared at Eve and didnt do anything because they had no idea what to do or say.

“Alright, since its already late, you guys are dismissed,” Faye said. “You can ask for a room, Archie, the receptionist will give you a key to an empty room,” Faye continued and glanced at Eve.

“Oaky, I will do that now,” Archie replied as he nodded his head with understanding.

All of them left the meeting room, Archie and Eve went to the ground floor and asked for a key to the receptionist. They both got a room right in front of Rubys room, and right next to Novas room, both Ruby and Vincent then visited Archies room.

“What do you guys think? That Victor guy is one of you or not?” Ruby asked.

“No, hes not one of us, so I think hes just an underling. It would be nice if you can get something from him, because he must be hiding something from us when Faye confronted him back there,” Archie answered as he sat down on the bed.

“Yeah, we both think so too, he was kind of suspicious and I think he knows something about FalCon-1 that we dont,” Ruby said as she nodded her head in agreement. “By the way, what are you going to do now? Do you think hes going to report Eve to his boss?”

Archie looked back and saw Eve was staring down at the city through the window.

“Possibly, but even if he did, that didnt affect our plan at all,” Eve answered with her arms crossed. “As long as he only knows what I look like, everything will be fine,” Eve continue and looked at Ruby from the corener of her eyes.
