For weeks Deneley works endlessly to try and track Corona down and put an end to her schemes, but so far she has remained elusive.

Deneley stares at the file with tired and blurry eyes as he tried to make sense of the writing in front of him, before he simply lost all his patience and threw the file onto the floor.

"Damn it all! Why did it have to be her?! She is most dangerous and wanted criminal of her time! I saw her die in that explosion!"

Exhaling a sigh of deep frustration and fear he rubs his hands over his tired eyes as he tries to calm his shot nerves.

To be continued!
