There are these heavily-armed gunmen who are chasing them at this very moment. It seems like someone has figured out their location as well as the string of kidnapping incidents that they have been conducting. As for their identity, he can think of only one individual who can plot such a dead set pursuit within a short span of time -
The very core of the corruption in their company.
Of course, Adrian is still not completely certain about it. However, it still makes sense, considering that not even the highest-ranked officials can easily see through their schemes. Charles and Asher had been extremely cautious in furtively sourcing information from private records. He himself has thought that everything has been flowing smoothly.
Adrian is quite arrogant, so he is confident to say that the only people who can outwit him in this game are those who have made the rules.

At the very least, they still have an escape plan to follow.
In the end, only the two of them have stayed together. There were a couple of gunmen who were chasing them by that point. In the meantime, they went into hiding in hope that they would eventually lose them.
"Mister Shady, there is that guy over there..." Cassidy chimed in all of the sudden, pointing at an unconscious man who was lying on the ground a few meters away.
"You ran out of bullets, right? Let's take his weapon."
"No, we can't let our pursuers see us. We're staying here," Adrian protested, deeming her plan as a bad idea.
