Riley didn’t speak .
Huo Mian was clearly angry at herself for not thinking of this earlier .
“When we land, you give me half of the antidote and I’ll take you to my contacts to make an ID for you . ”
“No need,” Huo Mian refused without hesitation .
“You don’t trust me?” Riley chuckled .
“Of course not . You’re Huo Siqian’s man . I don’t want to return to that goddamned place . ”
That said, Huo Mian walked to the stern and watched the turbulent waves disturbed by the engine with complicated feelings inside .
She had to think about the problem of her ID; fortunately, she knew English, or she’d not be able to survive in this place .
The boat finally moved closer to the pier…
Without anyone’s help, Huo Mian was the first to leap onto the pier, looking like a tough woman .
“Miss Huo, where’s our antidote?” Riley extended out his hand .
“I’ll take John with me . When I come to a place that I think is safe, I’ll give your antidote to John . ”
“No . If you run, where do I get the antidote?” one of them objected .
“I won’t run since John will be with me . You don’t trust him?” Huo Mian asked .
Riley was silent as if he was considering Huo Mian’s words .
“Boss, I won’t disappoint you and will return with antidotes . I won’t let the woman get away,” with a gun in his hand, John promised .
“Boss, what do you think of the plan?”
“Miss Huo, now that you’ve left the island, the least you can do is giving part of the antidote to us,” Riley said .
“Mr . Riley, don’t bargain with me . Even though we’re on land, I won’t hesitate to die with you if you don’t agree to my terms . ”
Huo Mian was determined not to budge .
“Woman, how can you do this to us?” one of them cursed her in English .
“You must listen to me since I have your antidote . ”
“Do you have the antidote or not? I hope you’re not lying . When you left the island, you didn’t take things with you, right? Where is the antidote? I just don’t believe you,” one young white guy asked .
Hearing his words, everyone looked toward Huo Mian’s bag which was the only thing she had taken with her upon leaving the island .
No one knew what was in it because she had never opened it during the trip .
She even brought it with her when she went to the washing room .
Everyone was tempted; after all, if the antidote was in the bag, they could just grab it and take the antidote .
“Of course I have the antidote . I advise you not to have other ideas, or you’ll take the consequences . ” Huo Mian glanced at Riley mildly .
“I don’t believe her . I think it’s in the bag . No, we can’t let her go . I want the antidote now…”
The young white guy lunged at her .
“Mathew, stop . ” Riley didn’t like Mathew’s idea .
During the time since he had met Huo Mian, he had found the woman was very smart and horribly attentive to details; she could easily outmaneuver these guys .
So, he didn’t think she would do such an obvious thing as to put the antidote in her bag .
But the white guy looked like a pot abuser on crack and didn’t obey Riley .
He walked to Huo Mian and grabbed her bag from her shoulder rudely .
To his surprise, Huo Mian didn’t resist .
When he opened the bag, he saw only some ordinary objects such as a towel and a toothbrush… There was also a moderately-sized wooden box .
“The antidote must be in here . ” Hearing the young white guy’s words, the others perked up .
“I advise you not to touch my stuff…” Huo Mian warned him with a dark expression .
