As soon as He Zhichu’s harsh voice began to speak, Huo Shaoheng immediately cut him off to ask, “So does Professor He know exactly what’s going on?”He looked at He Zhichu inquisitively, and, from the corner of his eye, he saw Gu Nianzhi also look up and earnestly grab He Zhichu’s arm . She asked hopefully, “Professor He, you know! You know! Isn’t that right? They never succeeded… That sort of evil plan can never possibly succeed!”
He Zhichu instantly realized he had fallen into another trap when he heard Huo Shaoheng’s question .
Huo Shaoheng was really willing to use any methods necessary to pursue Gu Nianzhi’s origin…
A subtle sneer appeared on the corner of his lips as he instantly composed himself to coldly ask, “Why do you even need to ask that? Just look at Nianzhi’s age and think about the timeline for Operation Borrowed Seed . How can Nianzhi possibly have anything to do with it?”
Gu Nianzhi was going to turn 20 years old in six months, so she was only 19 and a half .
“She was raised by you from the age of 12 on and before that she… She lived with her father in South America . Gu Yanran and Ye Xuan can both testify to that . So Huo Shao and Reinitz, did you both agree to act out this big show together?”
He Zhichu calmly exposed the flaws in what Huo Shaoheng and Reinitz were saying .
He used the angle of Gu Nianzhi’s age and actually presented a very strong piece of evidence .
Huo Shaoheng keenly noticed that He Zhichu paused briefly when he said that Gu Nianzhi lived with her father before the age of 12 .
Squinting his eyes, his fingers subconsciously tapped on the desk as he calmly replied, “Professor He, it’s very obvious . If Nianzhi is related to Operation Borrowed Seed…”
“I have nothing to do with it! I can’t have anything to do with it!” Gu Nianzhi nervously interrupted Huo Shaoheng and pointed at Reinitz as she said, “Reinitz told me that my father even wrote a pregnancy diary for my mother when she carried me in her womb! They didn’t give birth to me in a concentration camp!”
He exchanged a glance with Huo Shaoheng .
They were both considered to be from the same line of work, but Reinitz discovered that he wasn’t in the same class as Huo Shaoheng when it came to the ability to conceal his emotions .
The woman Huo Shaoheng loved most was about to have a mental breakdown right in front of him, but he was still able to control the situation emotionlessly . This kind of restraint and self-control made Reinitz feel very inferior .
If he was the one that Gu Nianzhi loved or if he was Huo Shaoheng, he would not hesitate to wipe this all away .
He would not give Gu Nianzhi any cause for concern and would only hope that she would continue to live happily .
Unfortunately, this was merely a beautiful aspiration .
Reinitz knew that he wasn’t actually able to do this, either .
Perhaps people with roles like himself and Huo Shaoheng were not destined to put love as their first priority…
“Pregnancy diary? What is that about?” Huo Shaoheng looked at Gu Nianzhi and asked, “Did Reinitz tell you about this?”
He then turned to look at Reinitz . “Can you explain this? How did you know about Gu Xiangwen writing a pregnancy diary?”
Reinitz had only revealed the pregnancy diary because he wanted to make Gu Nianzhi interested enough to help him find the data .
Gu Nianzhi hadn’t even had a chance to tell Huo Shaoheng about it yet .
Reinitz had already calmed himself down by then and although the depression was growing in his heart, concealing this emotion wasn’t a very hard thing for him to do .
Reinitz struggled to stand up once again and supported the chair to pull up his numb leg . His voice resumed its normally gentle and polite tone .
“…I saw it in Gu Xiangwen’s transcripts, which were the transcripts and letters that Gu Yanran gifted to the Angels on Earth charity . I worked at that charity for several years before . ”
He looked at Huo Shaoheng calmly and knew that the other man must understand what he truly meant when he said he worked at the charity for several years .
Huo Shaoheng and his men were certainly familiar with that sort of thing .
Averting his gaze, Huo Shaoheng looked down to type on the computer before him, calmly replying, “Yeah . Even if that’s the case and Nianzhi has nothing to do with that concentration camp, what about her grandfather, Gu Haoze? Could he have nothing to do with that concentration camp, either?”
Reinitz’s heart plummeted as he instinctively looked at Gu Nianzhi .
He was the one to tell Gu Nianzhi about her grandfather, who was also the father of Gu Nianzhi’s father, Gu Xiangwen .
Gu Nianzhi had already told Huo Shaoheng about Gu Haoze in the short period of time between then and the night before?
It looked like she truly trusted Huo Shaoheng down to her very core .
Reinitz supported himself against the back of the chair to slowly sit down . Rubbing his kneecaps with his hands, he nodded and answered Huo Shaoheng’s questions .
“That’s right . Gu Haoze, who is Cereus’ grandfather, was sent from that concentration camp to our bureau . ” Reinitz’s expression was solemn as he said, “Gu Haoze was truly a master of psychology . He took all related data with him . The only things left behind were bits and pieces of information in the memories of our bureau’s predecessors, as well as conclusions drawn from physical interactions with him .
“Our bureau’s predecessors clearly recalled that Gu Haoze was a genius produced by Operation Borrowed Seed . His intelligence was off the charts, and he had an unbelievable memory . He only had to read a book once to memorize it forever . He could earn perfect scores on any academic subject by just reading through information about them once . There was nothing he couldn’t learn, only things he refused to learn .
“Afterwards, he became obsessed with psychology, and we assumed it was due to the inherent nature of a genius that he looked to challenge unknown academic subjects and fields . But we never expected that… After he studied psychology for six months, he was able to invent a very powerful type of hypnotism and single-handedly defeated everyone in our bureau . From the top-ranking officers down, from the Director to sentries, they all fell victim to him . ”
When Reinitz said this, he looked at Gu Nianzhi with a gentle yet conflicted gaze .
How could he ever forget that Gu Haoze’s granddaughter Gu Nianzhi had also performed a great hypnosis on their entire bureau’s online system?
That time, she had completely wiped out all the data in their online system and was even crueler than her grandfather, Gu Haoze…
Could this be the legendary learning that ran in their blood?!
At the same moment, Huo Shaoheng and He Zhichu also both recalled what Gu Nianzhi had done .
Huo Shaoheng’s eyes were full of unbridled admiration and affection .
However, He Zhichu’s eyes reflected shock and confusion…
But this suspicion only flickered in his eyes for a moment, so no one noticed it .
Gu Nianzhi also recalled what she did to the Gestapo the last time and revealed a small smile . However, she insisted on stubbornly refuting him, saying, “Even if my grandfather came from that concentration camp and was also a genius, that can’t prove the Japanese Operation Borrowed Seed actually succeeded . Moreover, that can’t prove that my grandfather was the result of Operation Borrowed Seed .
“Also, why didn’t they mass produce geniuses if they had really succeeded? Why would they send such an excellent product to the Gestapo for nothing?
“You think that Japan would put in all that effort just to help make the Germans look good?”
Reinitz froze when he heard Gu Nianzhi’s rebuttal .
He automatically argued with her, saying, “…Actually, it wasn’t the Japanese who gave him to us for nothing . At that time, World War II was coming to an end, and the Japanese were about to lose the war imminently .
“If they hadn’t sent him to us then, the Huaxia Empire and the other victorious countries would have taken him away along with all the data . They didn’t want anyone else to benefit, and this type of thing involved an ethical taboo . Even scientists who pursue this type of study today are working very hard to find the balance between ethics and scientific progress . ”
Huo Shaoheng’s brows furrowed tighter as he listened to this .
He always had a certain suspicion but didn’t have any evidence to prove it, so he would never reveal it easily .
When he recalled this, Huo Shaoheng glanced at He Zhichu again and asked discreetly, “Professor He, you are very close with the Gu family . May I ask if you knew Nianzhi’s grandfather? Where is he right now? Is he still alive, or has he already…?”
He Zhichu answered this question especially quickly .
“Gu Haoze? He… He passed away a very long time ago . ” He Zhichu seemed to recall something in his memories, or perhaps he was trying very hard to remember .
“He passed away even before Nianzhi was born . Nianzhi’s grandmother passed away even earlier than that . ” He Zhichu thought about the Gu family’s situation and said, “Gu Xiangwen and Gu Tian lost both their parents at a young age . Gu Tian and Gu Jing were both raised by Gu Xiangwen . ”Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
