Sabertooth - Chapter 33
Chapter 33: Reappearance of Logan
“Wolfman? A person who can communicate with the wolves? What the hell? Tina, we are the formal department, not the rumor terminator and approaching science!”
After solving Mrs. Greenhow’s case, a report from the western border was placed on Victor’s desk.
“What is the science of approaching? But our department has the function of dealing with supernatural. So this kind of thing is finally assigned to us! Your nickname is ‘Sabertooth Tiger’, will your head become like the real Sabertooth Tiger?”
Tina, the little secretary of the terrier, was very interested in Victor’s story.
In fact, at the beginning, she refused to do things under the mentor, who was transferred with such a rumor that he likes to tear the enemy and kill people without blinking. She is still young and does not want to be slapped by the ‘Sabertooth Tiger’.
When the result was transferred, she discovered that Victor actually spoke unexpectedly to her. And when he secretly drinks in the office during work hours, he will obey when she asks him to hand it over.
But that expression is like a kid being taken away from a beloved toy, inexplicably a little cute. But she still suspected that he was drinking secretly, because she could often smell alcohol on him.
“What the hell is the tigerhead? Speaking of it, it’s just rumors, did we really have to solve it!”
Obviously Victor didn’t want to mix this kind of thing, he had to think about recruiting people, and it wouldn’t be good to be a commander in a straight shot. Although after solving Mrs. Greenhow, he was specially approved for a quick reaction force, but in fact, the M company that originally belonged to him.
As for the commander of this unit, he was his former lieutenant: Tom, he and the guys of company M were very happy to return to Victor. The salary and treatment have also increased, so this is double happiness!
“It’s not just rumors! There are photos and eyewitnesses! Look, there is a photo. This person’s hands can stretch out a long claw! Sir, you seem to be able to come too, let me see first!”
As soon as the little secretary Tina’s voice fell, the picture on her hand disappeared. Victor looked at the photo with the hands outstretched and his claws blurry, and a cold smile appeared at the corner of his mouth.
“How did this photo come from? Won’t it be a fake photo created by the local people to attract attention?”
Although Victor has guessed, who the person in the picture is, there are still some things that need to be determined, such as why Wolverine will be photographed.
“It’s not just photos! There are many witnesses! The photo you took was taken by a local reporter. It is said that the ‘Wolfman’ was fighting with a bear at the time.”
Tina is slightly dissatisfied with Victor’s doubts. After all, she is very interested in these supernatural things, especially she very much wants to see Victor’s performance, when fighting with the Wolfman.
“Tina, go prepare the train ticket, and then ask Tom to gather troops, we will go and meet this so-called ‘Wolfman'”
He hope the person in the photo is Wolverine. After telling Tina, Victor thought again that he could only take the train to the west. He was still very resentful, and he was extremely envious of the future of the X-Men’s black technology aircraft and the aircraft carrier. However, in this era when gliders are not available, he can only take the train.
Moreover, the department’s funds are not large, so that they have to buy train tickets of ordinary trains. The military trains have been transferred to support the southern battlefield.
Victor heard that the Federation had a victory in Gettysburg, repelled the invasion from the Southern Union. However, General Hook, who had promoted him, did not serve as the supreme commander. General George Mead replaced him.
However, these things have no relation with him for the time being. He is now directly under the president. It is estimated that it is difficult to return to the frontal battlefield unless there is a particularly big crisis. However, after the Battle of Gettysburg, the backbone of the south was basically broken, and the rest was just waiting for them to shed blood.
Although the imminent victory in the civil war was a happy event, Victor always felt that he had forgotten something important. After failing to remember, Victor gave up the memory decisively and began to consider how to recruit Wolverine.
After all, they don’t know each other, so he can shout: “Wolfman! My long-lost brother!” And then Wolverine immediately bowed his head, and start working with him.
When Victor thought of such a picture, he felt too much happiness, and couldn’t look directly at it. Wolverine at this time is not yet a superhero, he wanders between wildness and humanity, facing the same choice as Victor had originally.
It can be said that Wolverine at this time is quite dangerous. Especially for ordinary people, it is a huge threat. The enraged Wolverine can kill without blinking.
What Victor has to do is to find Logan, and recruit him under his command. At least he should be included in his own control, and the province will be controlled and used by people with heart in the future.
Some people closed and opened, and the day passed. Some people stayed shut and passed their lives. Victor kept it closed, and the snail-like steam train took him to the destination of this trip: a small town on the federal border.
The environment in the town is quite complicated. British Americans, Americans, immigrants, and fugitives may be hidden among them.
In view of the complex situation in the town, Victor asked Tom to take the whole team and take others to the nearest Federal Barracks, only to reappear when Victor needed it.
Victor, himself, put on casual clothes, wore a mink fur neck, dangling a cigar, and hugged Tina, the little secretary, who also changed into casual clothes, and then went into the town.
“Sir, are you sure we have no problem like this? Willn’t people in town be identified? Also, I don’t have a boyfriend yet!”
But apparently her words were ignored by Victor, and Victor was treated like a newcomer with arms around the beauty, which did not arouse anyone’s vigilance. But he did not know that the newcomer was thinking that he was not handsome without sunglasses.
Soon after entering the town, Victor first found themselves a place to live. Originally he wanted to go to the hotel to open a room to deal with, but because the little secretary refused to sleep in the same room with him, so he took two rooms.
In the end, he directly found a snake head in the town. After the little secretary educated the ‘head ethics’ of the snake head, Victor bent the head of the snake out of his crotch. The snakehead take out his pistol.
“Young man, don’t think about pistols every day. Call your little brothers, let’s go to the biggest bar in town and celebrate, I’llpay the bill!”
Victor said, while he threw the revolver, which he squeezed into a scrap of iron into the arms of the snake head, and then walked to the largest bar in the town with the young secretary.
“Where did these two monsters come from? The little girl is not very young and can really fight like this. And is that man really human?!”
Thinking that Victor had just squeezed his pistol into a pile of scrap iron, and then remembered the Wolfman, the former snake head, Brock, shuddered, and then greeted the little brothers to keep up with the new boss.
The younger brothers are very happy about the generosity of the new boss. Although being beaten by a little girl is very shameful, but that woman is new boss’s girlfriend. Of course, it’s not easy, and those who live at the bottom can only comfort themselves in this way. And then continues to live.
Victor felt that Brock and the others had followed him. He felt that the former snake head was quite good. He wouldn’t kill them when he turned around. Send them to the prison to get a labor correction.
Because of the familiar face of Brock as a guide, Victor naturally merged into the tavern group and began his dream of drinking.
“What do I say to carry out the task, I think it is clearly to drink! He actually took advantage of me! After going back this time, I want to confiscate your possessions!”
Obviously Victor didn’t know that he had irritated his little secretary. After returning, his treasured baby wine would suffer. He is still drinking happily and has already drunk five big men.
In the tavern, the most popular people are those who can drink and are bold like Victor. He quickly became one with the others and got the intelligence he wanted:
Not long ago, there was indeed a raw face like Victor, named Logan. But the man has been living in a simple way, carrying a shotgun to the woods outside the town every day, as if looking for and tracking something.
There were also people who wanted to strike his attention, and then the body of the person who beat him up appeared in the gutter of the town the next day. In view of the situation in the town, the sergeant treated everything as if he was drunk and drowned.
“Going into the woods with a shotgun every day? What is he doing? Tina, leave!”
After asking about Logan’s residence, Victor whispered something to Tina and asked her to leave the town to find Tom. But he did not expect that the drunken drinker said that Logan really looks like him.
