Carrying a small backpack, Christopher Noman reached the entrance to the Batu Caves. The statue of Murguan towered over the entrance to the stairs. The 272 steps stairway lead to the limestone caves, one of the many famous tourist attractions in Kuala Lumpur. It was almost midnight and the area was deserted under the full moon.
He quickly ran up the stairs and halfway through he saw a guard lying on the ground hidden behind a bush. As he moved up further, he saw a few more guards that had been taken down. Taking on this man physically was out of the question. Christopher Noman knew that. The cold night brewed the adrenaline rush with the fear of death, creating a cocktail of emotions inside Christopher’s mind. He still kept going. After walking up what felt like never ending series of stairs, he was finally near the entrance of the cave. After emptying his backpack, he went inside.
‘Where’s the cavalry Mr. Noman?’ shouted Durus from a distance, his voice echoing in the labyrinth of the caves.
