“My name is Anne, I am in charge of the Asia branch of Global Lifeform Research Organization. Global Lifeform Research Organization is a national public service organization, our purpose is to research mysterious lifeforms worldwide and develop their applications thereof.”
My companion here is Wei Xingshan, head of the Asia Mobile Unit.”
When she finished the introduction, Wei Xingshan had finally recovered from the shock from the starling. Standing upright, he gave Lin Shuo a perfect military salute.
Lin Shuo nonchalantly gave the st.u.r.dy giant a glance and didn't say anything.
“We apologize for visiting you unannounced, and this is the reason,” as she spoke, Anne reached into her purse and retrieved something wrapped in a piece of white cloth. She unwrapped the item slowly and showed it to Lin Shuo.
Lin Shuo was indifferent up to the point he saw the scale in front of him. His faced dropped slightly.
He sniffed a couple of times to get a better smell of it.
A familiar smell. Behind his spectacles, his eyes squinted. Reaching out, he took the scale from Anne.
He examined it carefully. The scale was the size of two palms. Under the sun inside the adobe house, the scale was completely black with a peculiar copper-like glow.
When he tilted it a bit, he could see a three-finger wild dark red line in the center.
A gut-wrenching feeling overtook him. Turning page, he thought to himself, “it's it?”
The starling who resting on the desk fluttered it's wings, flew over and landed on Lin Shuo's shoulder. He joined Lin Shuo at examining the scale and said, “Shuo ge, how is this possible?”
“It was impossible before, it is possible now.” Lin Shuo held the scale closer to his nose and sniffed again, “It is it. And the smell is fresh, it had fallen off no more than a month ago.”
“it was still alive?” The starling fluttered it's wings anxiously, “I thought it was…”
“No point in speculating,” Lin Shuo interrupted the starling and looked up at Anne, “Where did you find this?”
“Eastern federal district of Russia, northern part of Heilongjiang.” Replied Anne immediately. “Two weeks ago, 182 people disappeared from a village approximately 20 kilometers north of Heilongjiang. Seventy-three of them are Chinese citizens.”
During the Russian police investigation, they discovered what looked like crawl marks of a giant creature along with this scale.
Heilongjiang bothers both China and Russia so it hindered the Russian police's ability to continue with the investigation. In addition, this entire incident was very bizarre so the Russian government contacted our organization and hope we will take over the investigation.
This incident was of high interest to our organization because…”
“Hold on!” With a raised hand, Lin Shuo interrupted Anne's narration. Frowning, he asked, “You said, this scale appeared near Heilongjiang?”
