After the introduction, the trio clicked instantaneously. After a short while, they moved into the ballroom and Vincent noticed Sophie turning her head left and right. He lowered his head a bit and moved closer to her ears.
"What are you looking for, Sophie?" His voice startled Sophie.
"Nothing. Just wondering why didn't I see Mr Shawn anywhere."
John that was listening in answered Sophie.
"Shawn received an emergency call, so he left. Is there anything you need from him?"
Sophie turned her head side to side, then glanced the black leather dress watch on her brother wrist.

The rest of the event went smoothly and the guest dispersed gradually around 10 pm. Sophie kissed her brother goodbye and left the hotel with her modified black Toyota Century car.

Find me his trial run, go back 10 years if can. Tell everyone to remain low and stay safe. The bomb doesn't exploded and missing, they would definitely will come and investigate why."
"Understood." Both Gilligan and Abby replied.
"By the way boss. It seems that underworld is blacklisting the Blakes. What should we do?"
"When did this happened?" (・・ ) ?
"Around next month. Should we still continue our plan? "
Sophie nodded in agreement, then disconnect the connection afterwards. Uno rolled up the lowered partition and continue to drive Sophie home while she silently look out of the window, drifting her mind....
