Zhuo Chu Yuan picked up the telephone again, dialed Zhong's number, while she said, "Are you in the mood to take a trip to the airport?
The autumn sun peeked into the terminal from the west.
A light breezed danced through the deep blue sky. It was a beautiful day.
Through the large glass window of the airport arrival gate, Ling Duyu watched an airplane gracefully descend to a runway that reflected blinding rays of the sun back to his eyes.
Ling Duyu hid the fact that he was attentively looking around, but the enemy was concealed very well. He couldn't spot anyone suspicious. He only noticed a few plainclothed detectives watching him from distant locations. This was Zhuo Chu Yuan's so called "protection", but they were also using him as bait to make the enemy reveal themselves. They also forced him to wear a wire-tap on his body so they could listen to anything he said. It goes without saying that he was extremely irritated.
Within the large concourse camera flashes mixed with joyous laughter. Moving around exitedly several Japanese tourist from a travel group were taking pictures of each other. If someone told him that the entire group were made up of Japanese Bunya Okono members he wouldn't be suprised. The Bunya Okono easily hast that kind of power.
It was near Zhuo Chu Yuan where he first noticed three people by the telephones. One had to be a governmental spy, one had to be a Bunya Okono family member, and the third certainly had to be "M".
Ling Duyu laughed to himself, who is going to guard him, they didn't assign enough people for that, it looks like Zhuo Chu Yuan is going to be defeated by him. At this moment she was waiting on the tarmac. As soon as the plane landed Director Zhuo arranged a special deboarding so they could retrieve Chen Wupeng who would be accompanied by several special police. An elaborate escape plan had already been set up. A bullet proof car used for dignitaries, followed by two police cars and an escort of six motorcycles. In addition the honor guard was commissioned to protect Chen Wupeng as he deboarded. Even heads of state didn't receive such a welcome.
Flight 708 drew a beautiful arc in the sky as it slowly approached the airport. It turned toward the runway and began its slow descent. It was like watching a slow motion sequence in a movie.
Ling Duyu still felt at ease when suddenly his facial color made a drastic change.
He suddenly felt a dangerous premonition. This was the second time in the day. The first happened at 2:00 am while he was meditating in his office, and the second had just occurred.
He felt that a major crisis was approaching, but he didn't know what it was.
The quiet runway under the gentle sun extended out, the airplane's landing gear was lowered, like a large bird extending its wings the airplane descended toward the tarmac.
All was normal.
But Ling Duyu's hands and feet were ice cold, a shiver ran up his spine.
He knew that a horrendously terrible event was about to happen.
By now Zhuo Chu Yuan and several heavily armed airport special security officers were standing to one side of the runway near the airport terminal, they were all staring at the other end watching the jumbo 747 make its descent. On that airplane was their distinguished guest, Chen Wupeng who they were waiting for respectfully, he was possibly the only clue left in the world for this investigation.
She was holding a radio tuned to the pilot and air traffic control's frequency.
The pilot said, "Everything is smooth, the landing gear is down, start decelerating and initiate the landing procedure, please report the runway conditions. Over."
"Runways is open, you are cleared for landing. Over"
Following the transmission there were 34 seconds of silence.
The airplane descended straight to the runway.
Zhuo Chu Yuan held her breath, the investigation was about to move on to a new stage.
So far everything had gone smoothly, but suddenly the nose of the airplane dropped from a 45 degree angle to a 75 degree angle, straight towards the runway.
Zhuo Chu Yuan's heart gave a jump as her face turned a grayish white. The people around her all began to rush to the other end of the runway.
The radio control tower shouted a trasmission, "708, what happened?!"
A sorrowful voice responded, it still sounded like the pilot but was strangely different, "Nobody can destroy me, when I have enough strength I will certainly be back." The transmission continued with wild laughter that covered up the shouting from the control tower. Then the sound of struggling mixed with a loud alarm could be heard from the airplane transmission.
The nearly vertical airplane hit the runway.
In the concourse of the airport, Ling Duyu could not believe what was happening before his eyes.
He saw the airplane hit the runway.
"BOOM", a ball of flame instantaneously spread out onto the runway, it looked like a series of continuous detonations.
Ling Duyu jumped up quickly, wildly shouting, "NO!"
The entire frame of the Jumbo 747 passenger jet disintegrated in the flames, dense clouds of smoke shot up miles into the sky. Debris was scattered all around the runway from the staggering impact.
There was another explosion and more fire.
In front of Ling Duyu the concourse windows all shattered. The force of the explosion was so strong that the glass couldn't withstand the shockwave.
The airport seemed to calm down before another explosion rocked the foundation of the building.
Following it was a deafening wave of sound. There were some people who fell down, some people were scrambling towards the exits, suddenly thousands of people were thrown into chaos.
Ling Duyu's eyes smoldered, he never thought this would be possible, but it really did happen.
What is this "Magic Stone"?
What power caused the destruction of the entire airplane?
