“Jerry, how do we catch up to it?”
Seeing the owl in Jerry’s hand pick up the letter, it spread its wings and disappeared into the night. Coulson then remembered that they didn’t seem to have any means of transportation to catch up with the owl.
Jerry turned his head and showed a smile, “Would you like to experience the joy of riding a dragon?”
“Riding a dragon?” Everyone suddenly remembered the dragon that the Wizard rode in the video about the Battle of New York.
A moment later, in the sky above downtown Los Angeles, Coulson stood on the back of the fire dragon, feeling the strong wind blowing on his face, and sighed to Jerry, who was flying in the sky next to him, “I never have I ever thought that one day I would ride a dragon. Although it’s a bit scary, I have to say. It’s pretty cool!”
Fitz, who was behind him, leaned on the dragon’s back tightly and complained, “This is crazy. I hope it doesn’t throw us off.”
After finishing speaking, Fitz also shouted to the left with a worried look,
“Jemma, hurry up!”
“I know, Fitz!” On the back of the smaller Peruvian Vipertooth dragon on the left, Jemma hugged the dragon’s neck and replied excitedly.
It turned out that because of the large number of people, Jerry released both Norbert and Norsa. Norbert was bigger, so he carried Coulson, Fitz, Grant, and Mike, and while Norsa was smaller, he carried Skye, Jemma, and May.
Jerry used his flight magic to fly beside them and applied a Disillusionment Charm to make everyone invisible. After flying like this for about half an hour, the owl in front suddenly began to descend and landed on a wooden house in the east area of Los Angeles.
In the center of this wooden house, a military helicopter and seven or eight black cars were parked. More than a dozen men with guns could be seen guarding the room.
“Why is there an owl here? a letter?” Raina, who was pulling Ace out the door and about to take a plane to downtown Los Angeles, suddenly saw an owl landing in front of her, with a look of surprise.
Reaching out to pick up the owl and pulling out the letter from the owl’s mouth, Raina’s eye suddenly shrank. Because there is a name written on the envelope – “Ace”.
“Be careful!” Raina immediately issued a warning to the soldiers guarding.
However, as soon as she finished speaking, she discovered that the dozen or so guards with guns were instantly taken out.
Four of them were centipede soldiers who had been enhanced. With their physical strength, they tore off the shadows on their bodies.
A strong wind suddenly hit her, and the flying gravel forced her to close her eyes temporarily, and then she heard two huge dragon roars.
When Raina opened her eyes again, she was surrounded by Coulson’s team, and the centipede soldiers had been torn into several pieces by two huge dragons.
What surprised her was what happened next because a young man actually floated in the air, stretched out his hand, and put two dragons into a suitcase.
“Ms. Raina, I’m Agent Coulson from S.H.I.E.L.D. You are under arrest.”
At the same time, the Office of the President of the World Security Council.
“Sir, Fury has been secretly doing little things lately, and I’m worried he seems to notice something.” Agent Sitwell adjusted his glasses, and his expression became a little more uneasy.
Pierce got up, walked to the glass window, and sighed, “Maybe the last time we attacked the Wizard’s family made him suspicious. He came to me this afternoon and told me that there was a traitor among the top agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and asked me to call a Security Council to vote on postponing the implementation of the Project Insight.”
“So, is the plan still going on now?” Sitwell worried.
Pierce turned around and looked at Sitwell sharply, his tone full of firmness, “Of course, we have to continue. Our preparation for so many years is for this project. How can we give up because of such a little setback? Since Fury wants to step in, then take him out.”
The reason why Fury was chosen as the director was because he felt that under the leadership of Fury, S.H.I.E.L.D. could grow at the fastest speed. Under Fury’s management, the strength and scale of S.H.I.E.L.D. are now more than ten times larger than before.
Now that Project Insight is about to be completed, Fury’s role is dispensable, and he has also noticed the existence of Hydra. It is the perfect time to kill him and let Hydra come out of the darkness again.
“I’ll take care of Nick Fury. You continue to complete the project. I want those three aerospace carriers full of weapons to be able to launch on time as planned.”
“Yes, sir!” After Sitwell replied, he hurried out of the office.
Pierce took out a specially made mobile phone, and after dialing a few keys, he ordered, “Start the plan. Send the Winter Soldiers to execute. Hail Hydra.”
“Hail Hydra.” A reply came from the other end of the phone.
On the plane.
Jemma used a chopstick to pick up a piece of chicken with difficulty, and after a long time, she finally got it into her bowl, “I can’t imagine how you can pick up food so flexibly with these sticks.”
As a biological expert, her hands are very flexible, but today she was having trouble with chopsticks.
May skillfully pick up a bean, put it in her mouth, and replied, “You’re just not used to it, and if you’re used to chopsticks, you’ll find it’s the most flexible and convenient way to eat.”
“I think so too.” Skye picked up a piece of food, put braised pork on the plate, and then ate it.
Jerry looked at the way Skye used the chopstick and shook his head with a smile,
“Since you can’t use it well, you can choose to use the tableware you are used to. Like knives and forks, just like Fitz.”
“This is Chinese food. It would be more appropriate to use chopsticks. It just feels different if you use normal tableware.”
Jemma echoed, “When you eat steak in a restaurant, everyone uses a knife and fork, and then one person uses a spoon to eat one. Doesn’t it feel weird?”
Fitz silently put down the knife and fork in his hand and then picked up the chopstick again.
Seeing this, Jerry shrugged, “Well, whatever suits you well.”
After successfully capturing Raina and a group of soldiers, Jerry directly opened the portal and brought everyone back to the plane. After returning, Mike took his son back, and Coulson and Grant began to interrogate Raina and the members of the organization.
Because of her hunger, Jemma proposed using a microwave to warm up the hamburgers stored in the refrigerator. Jerry used his magic to make a table of food. Hence they were eating well right now.
Just as everyone was chatting and eating halfway, Coulson and Grant returned to the large living room after the interrogation.
“Oh wow, this looks delicious. May, Did you make it? I didn’t know you could cook.”
“Wow, really? I guess from now on, I’ll be cooking you guys food for our daily needs.” May continued to hold the vegetables and replied without looking up.
The last time she ate such authentic Chinese food was when her father cooked it for her when she came home a few years ago.
“Nah, I’ll skip. I don’t want to get into trouble with you.”
Coulson sat next to May and picked up the bowl that May had prepared for him in advance.
“Jerry did it. To be honest, I don’t think you’ve seen that kind of magic before!”
Skye remembered the scene where Jerry waved his wand just now, and then in the kitchen where Jemma only occasionally went, it started to move on its own and cook the whole dishes. Before she joined S.H.I.E.L.D., she wouldn’t have to eat bread in the van every day if she had this magic.
“Did you get anything from there, Coulson?”
Jerry saw that everyone was gradually talking about food and quickly brought the topic back to the mission.
Coulson skillfully picked up a piece of chicken and shook his head, “Everyone, including Raina, has never seen Clairvoyant and only executes orders over the phone. Every time they execute a mission according to Clairvoyant’s order, the mission will be successful, so they all believe that Clairvoyant has the ability to predict the future.”
“Coulson, why are you so good at using chopsticks?” Skye looked at Coulson with surprise on her face.
“Oh, I learned from May. We have been partners for over ten years but have not eaten Chinese food together.” Coulson replied casually.
He and May have known each other for a long time, and the two became agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. almost around the same time. But because of this, the two are often assigned to perform tasks together.
Now the two are partners again.
“Did you find out why they came for you?” Jerry asked again.
When Coulson was about to interrogate, he proposed to use the owl to locate Clairvoyant and then went to catch him. But Coulson insisted on interrogating them first, and if he couldn’t really interrogate his true identity, then he could only make the last choice.
Hearing Jerry’s question, Coulson paused, and a complicated look suddenly appeared on his face, “I got it. According to them, it’s because of Clairvoyant’s ability that he couldn’t see everything that happened after my death, and he wanted to know how I was resurrected.”
“They suspected that a part of my memory had been deleted. The strange machine in their base just now was designed to stimulate my brain once again forcefully.” Coulson was quite speechless about the information he got.
He felt that he was no longer here. His memory had been deleted by Jerry with magic before and obfuscated.
When he woke up, Fury told him that he was just seriously injured and his life was hanging by a thread. After he was finally rescued, he was in a coma for a long time before he woke up. But Raina told him that he was dead at that time, but now he is alive again.
“Your memory has been deleted again? How so?” Hearing Coulson’s answer, Jerry subconsciously replied.
When Coulson heard the word “again”, he wanted to say something to Jerry. It wasn’t deleted for the first time, but in the end, he changed his mind and asked, “Jerry, the director showed you the video of the time when the base was attacked. Did I really get killed in the video?”
“In the video, you were pierced by something. Normally speaking, you should have been dead at the time, so none of us doubted your death.”
At that time, Coulson felt weird.
When he saw Coulson alive, he also sighed that S.H.I.E.L.D.’s technology was really advanced, and they could treat such a serious injury. But now it seems that is not the case.
“After dealing with Clairvoyant’s problem, I will personally ask the director. Now, let’s get back to the real thing.” Coulson thought for a moment and said to Jerry.
Without interrogating to get the true identity of Clairvoyant from Raina and others, Coulson could only rely on Jerry to complete the mission. If it wasn’t for a special situation, Coulson didn’t want to rely too much on Jerry because that wasn’t good for their team.
If they depend on Jerry for everything, their ability to complete the task will decrease in the future when they encounter a crisis. Jerry is not always available, and it is impossible to call for help every time they encounter a problem.
“Very well then.”
Jerry took out an owl from the suitcase again, then took out the letter, left the name “Clairvoyant” on it, and handed it to Fitz.
“Apply your tracking liquid to the letter, then let the owl fly with it!” The location of the Clairvoyant is currently unknown. The owl may take a long time to get there if the distance is too far away.
So he asked Fitz to smear the tracking liquid on the letter while everyone could rest in the plane, let the computer on the plane track the owl’s position, and fly slowly towards the destination.
“Grant, you don’t want anything?”
When Fitz took the owl and went to the laboratory to apply the fluid according to Jerry’s instructions, Coulson looked at Grant instead of sitting down to eat.
Grant turned back and smiled, “I’ll get it later. I just got myself a set of chess pieces to busy myself with the time. I think the owl will take a while to find Clairvoyant.”
“Good idea, but none of you are my opponents when it comes to playing chess.”
Recalling that Grant did seem to have bought a new chessboard two days ago, Coulson didn’t think much about it, turned his head, and asked Skye, “Where’s Mike and his child?”
“They’re in the room. You know, Mike feels a little guilty about the whole situation.” Skye replied.
Coulson shook his head: “I can’t blame him. S.H.I.E.L.D. didn’t protect his children, so this happened. As a father, he didn’t do anything wrong. Go and call them to take some dinner. Ace should be hungry.”
Jerry nodded secretly on the sofa beside him when he heard the conversation between Coulson and Skye. In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., his favorite agent is not Fury, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Maria Hill, or Coulson.
Maybe Coulson wasn’t the best fit as a subordinate, but as a friend, he was more reliable.
For example, one day, by sacrificing Jerry can save a large number of people, Fury will not hesitate to sacrifice Jerry even if he has a relationship with him. But if it were Coulson, then he would do his best to save that group of people without sacrificing Jerry, even at the cost of his life.
In terms of results, Fury’s choice was the best, but as Jerry himself, he definitely preferred Coulson. This is also the reason why most Avengers have a good impression of Coulson but have always disliked Fury.
On the other hand, after returning to his room to take out the newly bought chess, Grant did not immediately leave the room. Instead, he removed a very strange communication device from a small box under the bed and quickly moved on it.
After a while, the screen of the communication device lit up, and he briefly edited everything that happened today into text and sent it out. It was not until he saw the reply on the screen of the device that he put it back in the small box, grabbed the chess set, and returned as if nothing had happened.
