The first thought that came to Hattori Kazuo’s mind after he had thoroughly surveyed the scene was that this mission seemed a little too easy.
You know that when they helped Ryojin Matsumoto to kidnap Su Zhi Fei and Su Zhi Yu, the mission was much more difficult than this.
That time it was to silently take out all of the Su family’s entourage and then take the Su siblings away from a building several dozen storeys high, this mission as a whole seemed much easier than that one.
That operation against the Su siblings had also involved Kazuo Hattori, only after the mission was successful, he did not take the siblings to Kyoto.
So, this mission was not technically difficult in his eyes.
After exploring the scene as a whole, Hattori Kazuo asked Qiao Feiyun, “Mr. Yun, I wonder if you can reveal any information about the target person this time?”
Qiao Feiyun said indifferently, “You don’t need to know the identity of the target for the time being, I will tell you on the 11th.”
According to Qiao Feiyun’s plan, the matter of inviting Gu Qiuyi to the charity dinner was to be kept absolutely confidential at all times.
Even the word of communication with Gu Qiuyi was for her to attend as a mystery guest, which would not only increase the mystery of the charity dinner, but also ensure that Gu Qiuyi would not be tracked down and chattered by the media and fans when she came.
When Gu Qiuyi arrived, the pre-arranged staff would bring her and her entourage directly into the lounge, and a special VIP lane was prepared for her, so that Gu Qiuyi’s motorcade could park directly in the backyard of the ballroom and enter the lounge directly through the back door.
That way, even the members of the New York Chinese Chamber of Commerce who were attending the charity dinner that night did not know that the famous Gu Qiuyi would be under the same roof as them.
Therefore, it was even more unlikely that Qiao Feiyun would let Kazuo Hattori know the target of the kidnapping in advance.
Moreover, what Qiao Feiyun did not know was that Hattori Kazuo not only knew about Gu Qiuyi, but also personally liked Gu Qiuyi’s works and was considered a fan of Gu Qiuyi.
Not only that, back at the time on Ye Ling Mountain, Hattori Kazuo had personally seen Gu Qiuyi appearing next to Ye Chen.
If he had known that the target of the kidnapping was Gu Qiuyi, he would have left the United States without saying a word.
In his heart, he knew that although money was a good thing, he had to have a life to spend.
Hattori Kazuo, who was in the dark, saw that Qiao Feiyun was unwilling to reveal information about the target, so he stopped asking and changed the subject, asking, “By the way, Mr. Yun, may I ask what are the origins of the other party’s bodyguards, are there any ninjas, or martial arts masters from China?”
“No.” Qiao Feiyun said with certainty, “Her bodyguards, who are all from US-based security companies, are basically retired US Army Special Forces and Special Police.”
Hattori Kazuo nodded gently.
The overall strength of the Iga ninja was considered the highest among the four major ninja clans in Japan, so the only thing he was actually afraid of in his heart was the martial arts experts of China.
In the past, he also did not put Chinese martial arts masters in his eyes, until he saw Ye Chen’s strength with his own eyes on Mount Ye Ling, at that moment he realised that Japanese ninjutsu, in front of Chinese martial arts, was not worth mentioning at all.
After ascertaining that the target could not have a martial arts expert by his side, the only worry in Hattori Kazuo’s heart was completely dispelled.
As far as he was concerned, he would be able to complete this mission with ease and return home in triumph.
The day after Kazuo Hattori arrived in New York with the Iga ninja, Gu Qiuyi arrived on a chartered plane with her own team of over 100 performers.
There was a lot of enthusiasm from Chinese people all over the United States, and many American fans were also excited.
When the plane arrived at JFK, thousands of fans went to the airport to greet them.
The scene was so big that it caused traffic and order chaos at the airport at one point.
It was a 40-minute drive from JFK to the Buckingham Palace Hotel in New York where Gu Qiuyi was staying.
However, due to the frenzy of the fans, it took two and a half hours for Gu Qiuyi to arrive at the hotel.
And before she even arrived at the hotel, many local American media had already reported the riot at the airport.
However, these media basically could not believe that a Chinese female singer had such a strong fan base in the United States.
