Chapter 2261: Starting from the School

“It was you who promised me with your life that the person you were sending was trustworthy,” Mo Fan echoed back to him.

“I…I didn’t know. Golden Canary was one of the Enforcers I trained myself!” Zhu Meng had no idea how to explain himself.

“Zhu Meng, I’ve always trusted you. I know what kind of a person you are, too. You might be righteous, but that doesn’t mean your men are the same as you. Luckily, I was being extremely careful. Otherwise, we would have lost the important name list,” Mo Fan sighed.

“It’s my mistake. I didn’t think everything through. If you think I’ve neglected my job… you can do whatever you want to me!” Zhu Meng called out in shame.

“There’s a man called Iron Bee here. Is he one of your men too?” Mo Fan asked.

“Yes, he is,” Zhu Meng let out a relieved sigh when Mo Fan did not dwell on his mistake.

“You should talk to him about his working attitude,” Mo Fan passed his phone to Iron Bee.

Iron Bee was standing right beside Mo Fan, and was clearly able to hear the conversation between Zhu Meng and Mo Fan.

For some reason, he felt a chill running down his spine the moment he took the phone.

“Iron Bee? Tell me what happened,” Zhu Meng ordered.

“I…I came straight to the gathering point after receiving the order. I saw Golden Canary was badly injured, so I asked what happened to her,” Iron Bee said.

“What was your order?” Zhu Meng demanded.

“To fully comply with the Special Duty Commanding Officer’s orders,” Iron Bee reported.

“Did you see the Special Duty Commanding Officer?” Zhu Meng asked.

“I did…” Iron Bee’s voice was so soft that it was barely audible.

“Have you forgotten the code of conduct of an Enforcer after working in the field for so long? Should I summon you back and teach you everything again?

“Golden Canary is a member of the Black Vatican. I swore to Mo Fan with my life that he could trust her, yet she tried to destroy the list of names. A Chief Enforcer and a Councilman have already proven it to be true. Does he still need to report to you and get your approval? Or perhaps you would like to say something in defense of the traitor? Sure, I will now give you a chance to appeal to the Enforcement Union on her behalf!” Zhu Meng scolded him angrily.

“I…I didn’t mean that, Councilman! I was being arrogant. I will apologize to the Special Duty Commanding Officer right now!” Iron Bee was struggling to stand properly after the scolding.

A Chief Enforcer and a Councilman had already proven that Golden Canary was the traitor…

“Just do your job as a Field Enforcer. Golden Canary has become a disgrace to our Tianbei Enforcement Union. I don’t want you to destroy the remaining pride that we have left!” Zhu Meng rebuked him.

Zhu Meng was in great shock himself. Golden Canary had been an elite Field Enforcer. Zhu Meng had put much faith into her, so he immediately sent her to Mo Fan after he found the important evidence. To his surprise, she was the one helping the Black Vatican to destroy evidence!

Not only did the traitor almost kill Vice Chief Leng Qing last time, she almost helped over a thousand members of the Black Vatican escape!

Chairman Shao Zheng had already scolded Zhu Meng. Zhu Meng had quickly called Mo Fan to explain himself and get his understanding.

Luckily, Zhu Meng had provided Mo Fan with some help during the incident related to the Parthenon Temple, and they were pretty close to one another. Otherwise, not only could he lose his job as a Councilman because of his grave mistake, he might even be placed in custody for investigation!

His life would be over!

Zhu Meng did not even dare to doubt Mo Fan’s decisions now, yet one of his men, Iron Bee, was bold enough to ask unnecessary questions. Zhu Meng had the urge to slap Iron Bee in the face if he had not been an ocean away....

Zhu Meng clearly knew the reason he was not being arrested and interrogated now was because Mo Fan had asked for mercy on his behalf when he reported his findings to Tang Zhong and Shao Zheng.

If Mo Fan had not told Chairman Shao Zheng that he believed Zhu Meng was innocent, what Golden Canary had done could easily drag the person-in-charge of the Tianbei Enforcement Union down with her!

Iron Bee seriously did not know his place. Did he not realize that it was Mo Fan who had just saved the Tianbei Enforcement Union?

Iron Bee finally behaved himself after the scolding.

Mo Fan was not unforgiving. After all, he needed all the help he could get.

Mo Fan took his phone back. Zhu Meng said sincerely, “Mo Fan, thank you so much for what you have done. Not only did you prove I’m innocent, you also helped us to find a traitor.”

“We’ve known each other for so many years and been through so many things. It’s fine as long as you don’t blame me for entrapping you,” Mo Fan smiled in reply.

“Of course not, you have made such a huge discovery. I wouldn’t blame you even if you did set me up. Do I still need to go to you?” Zhu Meng asked.

“Yes, I won’t be able to manage the operation well without you being here as a Councilman,” Mo Fan said.

“Alright!”

Miyamoto Shin was very efficient at his job, as expected of a high-achiever from the Aorus Sacred Institute. He had managed to break up the thousand members of the Black Vatican in a short time.

Iron Bee and the others were still digging for more clues in the church. Miyamoto Shin was already done with his task by the time the moon had just risen into the sky.

“Sir, I’ve filtered out the people who are from the Aorus Sacred Institute. If they really are plotting against the school, we should take them out first!” Miyamoto Shin called out.

“How many are they?” Mo Fan asked.

“There aren’t a lot at the school, thirteen members in total. Three of them are Blue Deacons, and the rest are Clergymen. However, they have a lot of disciples among the workers in the villages,” Miyamoto Shin reported.

“Sure, we will start from the school,” Mo Fan nodded, agreeing with Miyamoto Shin’s suggestion.

“Sir…” Iron Bee spoke up softly.

Mo Fan looked at him.

Iron Bee was obviously intimidated by Mo Fan now, like a subordinate who had made a mistake. He continued in a humble voice, “The members of the Black Vatican each have a main contact person, but they might also personally know some of the disciples, too. If we take them out one at a time, they might warn the others to run away.”

“You don’t agree with the plan?” Mo Fan asked him.

“No, I’m just saying that if the Black Vatican bribed Golden Canary and decided to abandon the people on this list, we can ask Golden Canary to send out a quarantine command to prevent the members of the Black Vatican from escaping,” Iron Bee suggested carefully.

Mo Fan looked at Miyamoto Shin, who nodded and agreed, “That’s not a bad idea. It’s very likely the others will run away, since we are taking them out in order.”
