ked toward Cecilia and handed her the large wicker basket. ”Go and take this basket down. Be careful with it. ”
Taking the basket, Cecilia had a closer look at the contents inside. She was stunned to see a little baby sleeping soundly with his little mouth opening occasionally to breathe.
”Wah! Its so cute. Don tell me this baby is the cause of the energy influx? ” said Cecilia with disbelief.
”I don know yet. That is why Im staying here to look for more clues. ” said the captain.
”Ehe, well see ya. ” Cecilia gently carried the basket down the stairs with excitement.
Cecilia soon met the group on the second floor and informed them of the discovery on the fourth floor. The group showed faces of grimace as they heard about the squashed heads and the horrible smell.
Cecilia also met with the girl and asked her about the baby, but the girl told her that she knew nothing about it. She was soon perplexed, but she didn have the energy to think about it.
The investigation of the building soon reached its climax as the local police were informed and the media started reporting on the issue. Reporters flocked to the area but were immediately blocked by headquarter troops.
The issue started calming down after the professional clean-up team gathered all the evidence and sealed the building off.
At the entrance hall of the headquarters, it was absolute chaos. There were many homeless people leaning against the long hall as the headquarters guards tried to move them away. The place was crowded with many people, some were yelling and others were waiting in long lines. There were also random vendors selling their food and wares.
”Sure is crowded here. ” said Cecilia.
”Its probably due to the upcoming expedition. The government is pretty desperate right now so they
e funding the headquarter quite a lot to get as many recruits as they can. So, the pay must be extremely good. ” said Catherine with a smile.
”It seems like you
e unusually happy today. What happened? ” asked Cecilia.
”It has something to do with the abandoned building. ” said Catherina as she pulled Cecilia to the sides and looked both ways cautiously.
”We tested the girl to see if she held any magic essence after your captain kept nagging us about it, and the mana crystal responded. ” said Catherina with a serious look.
”Currently, she doesn know how to activate her magic, so we don know what abilities she has or what level of power she possesses. But its always good to have a magic user on our planet. This also means our research team will be able to gain more knowledge about the magic essence. ” Catherina was so excited that she couldn hold back her grin.
”What about the baby? ” said Cecilia.
”Unfortunately, we couldn find any trace of magic essence. The mana crystal didn have any response, so we concluded the baby was probably stolen as an ingredient for the cults ritual. However, there was no similar trace of DNA from the baby in the headquarters database. The headquarter plans to put the baby in an orphanage until they are able to find his biological parents. ”
”What a pity. I would have adopted the baby. ” sighed Cecilia.
”A person like you? ” said Catherina with a sarcastic smile.
”Hmph… Lets get our bonus so we can finally go home and get some much-needed rest. ”
