"Slam!" The doors of the cafe were thrown open, and a dozen or so uniformed soldiers holding soul laser guns rushed into the room. They aimed their guns at the customers in the cafe, and a wave of alarmed cries instantly rang out.
Tang Wulin's eyes narrowed slightly, and he was clearly rather perplexed by this situation.
From these soldiers' uniforms and equipment, it was quite clear that they were from the military. Why had they suddenly appeared here? Could it be that they had come here for Mo Lan?
A dozen or so soldiers naturally wasn't a cause for alarm, but this was Bright City, and only the most exceptional soldiers were stationed here. Whenever they appeared on a scene, it was very likely that major trouble was going to follow.
No matter how powerful he was, it would be very difficult for him to save Mo Lan if the military were determined to plot against her.
"We're here on official military orders! Everyone, put your hands on your heads and don't move! We're here to search for the suspect of a crime."
The cafe wasn't very large, and with the influx of the dozen or so soldiers, it was virtually completely packed. Tang Wulin wore a heavy expression as he appraised the soldiers.

In the past, she was strong, brave, and selfless, but she clearly didn't possess such an overbearing side at the time. Her aura alone was rather intimidating, even to him.
The soldiers that were about to spring into action instantly faltered slightly upon hearing her interrogation, and Tang Wulin almost reflexively positioned himself in front of Mo Lan, shielding her from the soul laser guns being aimed at her.
"What right do you have to be asking these questions?" a second lieutenant asked in a cold voice, "Search this place! We'll be held responsible if the suspect gets away."
Mo Lan harrumphed in an enraged manner, "Over my dead body! Does the military just do what it wants now? You're being paid by the federation to protect the general public, not to enforce tyranny on the people! Let me see who's abusing their power like this! Litt
