Kevin returned back to his own car. Neo was busy checking the information while Mike drove the car. Based on the three vertical and horizontal lines, there were nine places that they located. Neo was checking each of them carefully to figure out what was the best place to do the research.
"What do you find, Neo?"
"Four of them are pointing to the streets, which are totally impossible. Two of them point out to government offices and the other three points out to abandoned buildings."
Kevin frowned. "Where's their location?"
"Three of the streets are in our territory, one of the government offices is in our territory, and one of the abandoned buildings is in our territory too," Neo answered.
"Send people to investigate the place. I want to have a talk with the elders."
Neo quickly called the others from the clan to make the check towards the place. They could check the place in their territory, but it was impossible for the others in the other places.
"Whose territory is the others?"
"The last street and one of the abandoned buildings are in Souhon Clan's territory. The other abandoned building is in the Merion Clan's territory while the other government office is in the Tamari Clan's territory."
Kevin frowned. Even if he could tell the others about the location of the suspicious places, there was no certainty that they would move. It was not going to be easy to make them understand that this was a dangerous weapon.
"Boss, should we make a call to the other three clans?"
"Two clans are enough."
Neo was stunned. "What about the other one?"
"Fiore Group should have contacted Souhon Clan. Tommy and Jay are pretty close."
Neo thought about their days back in school and knew that it was rather true. Tommy and Jay spent a long time with one another, to the point that they often beat up one another. Of course, Tommy held back every single time because Jay would die if he didn't.
"Boss, are you sure that they're going to do the same thing with us?"
Kevin glanced at Neo with an indifferent expression. "What else is their reason to earn the information?"
Thinking about Kevin's question, Neo's mind spun harder. Normally, groups were created because they needed money. However, if Fiore Group just wanted some money, they would not attempt this dangerous trade. They had gotten half of the information, which many small factions wanted.
Posting the fact that they sold the information in Black Market was already more than enough to earn them millions. There should be another reason why they wanted the other half of the information. Only one reason was the most plausible.
They wanted to destroy it too.
Thinking about it this way, Neo felt more certain that it was true. They must have caught wind about the dangerous weapon and the families' intention. If those people succeeded, the Black Street would be in constant turmoil.
"You're right, Boss," Neo nodded his head. He was convinced. "How much do you want me to tell the other two clans?"
"Just say we get information that there's a suspicious place in their territory. Whether they check it or not is not our business anymore," Kevin answered.
Even as the leading clan, he was not that invincible yet. His position was not that strong outside his territory as he was still too young in their eyes. Besides, based on the rules, he had to be 18 to be proclaimed as the legal leader. As he was still 17, he still needed to wait.
He could not force the other clan to make a move. If they colluded with the two families, they would not get anything from leaking the information. Of course, it would be better if they tried.
It didn't take long for them to reach the headquarters of Ryukalin Clan. Their headquarters were located near the southeast of the city and were quite strategic. As the biggest clan, their headquarters was spanned across hundreds of meters. When they heard that their leader issued a command, they came out from their place to greet Kevin.
The moment Kevin came out from the car, they greeted him in unison.
"Welcome back, Clan Head Kevin."
Kevin looked towards the people in front of him with an indifferent expression. He waved his hand to dismiss them as he walked towards the first building in front of him. It was a large house, which served as the meeting hall for them. Several people were already waiting for him inside the hall.
"Clan Head," they stood up when Kevin came in.
Kevin nodded his head. He walked towards his seat at the edge of the room while Neo and Mike took their respective seat on the side.
"Thank you for coming so late at night. I call you all here because of the matter regarding the secret weapon research that the Aida and Nali Family conducted lately."
The elders were frowning. They had heard about this matter for quite some time. Some people said that this was only a rumor because the two families didn't have the power to do it. On the other hand, a portion of them told that this was true that the two families were going to make new weapons.
Some of them tried to investigate the matter, but so far, they hadn't got the decisive news about it. Since Kevin had said it out loud, they could guess that this young man must have known about it.
"Boss, is the news true?"
Kevin nodded his head. "I obtain a list of several suspicious places. Several of them are in our territory, so I ask them to investigate further."
When he was talking, a young member came in and bowed deeply. He was tasked to deliver a message to Kevin. Neo took the paper from the boy and handed the paper to Kevin.
Reading the result of the investigation, Kevin nodded his head. "We're going for a battle. Who wants to come?"
Facing that question, nearly all of the elders raised their hand. Since the Boss had spoken, it would be a disgrace if they didn't try to move forward. After all, they knew that accompanying Kevin was a big honor.
Neo scanned the elders and noticed the few that didn't raise their hand. Some of them were indeed too old, but there was also someone who was still in middle age. Internally, he shook his head. Even after more than two years, there were still several elders who didn't want to accept Kevin as their leader.
However, he was pretty sure that they would change their opinion soon enough. There was still more than enough time before Kevin reached the legal age, so he shouldn't be impatient.
"Lou, you pick some of them except the Old Man," Kevin instructed.
Old Man looked towards Kevin begrudgingly. He was still young! How insolent!
Neo walked towards his father and patted the latter's back. "Father is already too old to move around too much. Just stay here and allow us the youngsters to finish the case."
Old Man looked towards his son and snorted. "If you lose, don't come to me begging for help."
"I won't lose."
Neo smirked before heading towards his own room to prepare for their departure. Old Man watched as his son walked away with a smile on his face. Ever since Kevin became the clan head, the one who became more active were those from the younger generation.
On his side, his old pal, Ryan, stood up. "They're not going to allow too many old members participates. This is not a massive battle. Those youngsters are already enough to handle them."
"I just miss the time when we're on the field," Old Man laughed.
"The time has changed, and it's to be expected. Our Clan Head is trying to move forward and train the future generation to uphold the clan," Ryan took out a cigarette. "Don't feel too down. He's working hard to erase the shadow of his father."
Old Man stood up and walked away too. Ever since the dead of Kevin's father, the boy has been trying hard to lead the clan without anyone help. Towards that expressionless boy, they could not do anything as they knew that the boy's pride would not allow himself to rest. No matter how hard it was, he was standing at the forefront of the clan to lead them all.
When the preparation has finished, Kevin led them towards the abandoned building under the pretense of conducting illegal business under his lead. He noticed several people were guarding the place carefully.
"This is an abandoned building, what are you doing here?" Mike asked with a mirthless smile on his face.
The men looked towards the group of men with uncertainty. "Who are you?"
"We're the owner of this territory. Now, I want to meet with the one who authorizes the place," Neo answered.
The men looked towards each other. Before they could answer, a gun was shot towards them and they fell to the ground. Kevin and the others immediately took cover.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
"They don't seem to be up for negotiation," Mike smiled wryly.
Kevin readied his gun. "We're going in forcefully, then."
The Ryukalin Clan's men moved swiftly and swept the entire place. Their number was overwhelming that it didn't take a long time for them to clean up the entire place.
When they finished, Kevin found the weird weapon on the underground storage. He asked his men to clean them all up.
"The weapon is going to be quite dangerous if we let them be."
"Clean them up," Kevin answered coldly. "How's the call with the other two clans?"
"Tamari Clan checked the place, but they don't find anything suspicious. Merion Clan refused to cooperate," Neo answered.
Kevin arched his eyebrows. The third abandoned building was located in Merion Clan, so it was not going to be easy if they wanted to destroy the place. If he broke the rules of their territory, war between clans was going to happen.
"Post a mission in Black Market."
Since they didn't want to cooperate, he would just use a different method to achieve his aim.
