Chapter 275 Lambs to the Slaughter
As soon as Nicole heard this, she immediately dismissed the idea of turning around and running.
It would be too pitiful if they got shot to death from behind! However, what could they do if they could not run? The air was terribly cold, and the smell of cigarette smoke permeated with the fishy smell of the seawater engulfed them.
The three men were right in front of them.
At this rate, they would not be able to hold out any longer. Nathaniel was so scared that he began to tremble.
Although he was an explorer, he had never experienced anything like this before! Nicole was not much better, but when she saw the pirates approaching, her heart gradually calmed down instead.
Three men approached, two of them tall with strong bodies. The other one was a little shorter and thinner, but his face was cold, and his hawk-like eyes were the most terrifying of all.
He looked at her with a gaze that was intense and filled with greed. Although Nicole’s clothes were wretched, her beautiful and elegant features could not be concealed.
Noticing his gaze, Nicole glared fiercely at the slightly shorter and thinner man that was closest to her. 2/9 Chapter 275 Lambs to the Slaughter The man let out a provocative sneer.
His cold and sinister eyes glinted with danger. He whistled and sized her up with a lewd gaze. The next moment, he raised the gun and pointed the cold barrel under her chin, forcing her to tilt her head up.
He looked at her like a vanquisher surveying his plunder.
His evil laugh as he joked with his companions was filled with coldness and greed. “Look, this woman’s quite a fetch.
We got ourselves a large haul this time…)) The men at the back laughed arrogantly and unrestrainedly in agreement.
Their eyes seemed to graze Nicole’s neck like the tongue of a venomous snake.

The atmosphere was tense.
They all knew that Nicole and Nathaniel could not escape.
Nicole’s body stiffened, but her heart settled down.
The howling sea breeze blew around her face.
It was prickling, but it made her particularly clear-headed and calm.
Her fists at her sides clenched tightly and her palms bled from her nails digging into them, but it did not matter.
She could still smell the burnt gunpowder on the barrel of the gun after it was discharged.
It was a warning of death.
At the moment when the pirates looked at each other and laughed, Nicole suddenly reached out and grabbed the gun in front of her.

Opposite them, the pirates cussed and glared viciously at Nicole.
This damned woman! Their guns were not props. A bullet could shoot out of the barrel at any second “Do you want to die? Let him go!” Nicole’s gaze was grim
. She laughed coldly as she fiercely knocked the man’s head with the back of the gun.
“I want a helicopter.’ “Impossible!” One of them cursed at her for her insane demand! How dare she threaten pirates on their turf? She was asking for death! Nicole did not expect her demand to be met.
However, since she had a bargaining chip, she suddenly became less afraid.
The other pirates shouted toward the distance, and the men on the ship were swiftly dispatched.
Their trained response carried a ruthless killing intent as countless muzzles were soon aimed at Nicole..
