Yin Shixiong was silent for a while, then said, “She seemed to recuse herself, so I didn’t see her speak to Little Ze at all . But…”Yin Shixiong paused, then looked ahead uncomfortably, saying, “When she thought no one was noticing, I saw her looking at Little Ze in a daze . ”
Gu Nianzhi, “…”
“Since everyone was noticing, how did you notice her?” Gu Nianzhi’s focus was rather strange .
Yin Shixiong was stumped by her and couldn’t help but glare . “You’re amazing! You even dare to tease Brother Xiong!”
“When did I ever dare to do that…?” Gu Nianzhi smiled and held her hands out, saying, “Pure logical analysis, pure logical analysis . Brother Xiong shouldn’t get angry . ”
Yin Shixiong chuckled . “Actually, our line of work requires us to look in all directions and listen to any sound . Others may think we haven’t noticed anything, but we have already seen right through them, inside and out . ”
“Really?” Gu Nianzhi cocked her head and said, “But Brother Ze is not as smart as Brother Xiong . ”
“Well, I admit that my computer skills are not as good as Little Ze . Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, so that’s why they have their own duties and specialties,” Yin Shixiong said disapprovingly . “I mean that while we are not all experts on everything, I’m a little more skilled than Little Ze when it comes to social relations . ”
Therefore, out of all four of Huo Shaoheng’s personal secretaries, Yin Shixiong was always the one to communicate with others .
Technical support was always left to Zhao Liangze .
Gu Nianzhi leaned on the car window and said thoughtfully, “Yes, you are good at social relations, and Little Ze is good with computers . But I think Huo Shao is good at both things…”
“That’s a given . How else would he be a major general, while I’m just his personal secretary? Nianzhi – I’ll tell you that I rarely give anyone my full respect . But Huo Shao is the only person that I can fully give my respect to . ”
Yin Shixiong was not only loyal to Huo Shaoheng but also worshipped him .
People like him believed most strongly in relying on speaking with strength .
Gu Nianzhi nodded as she calmly changed the topic to Huo Shaoheng . She was hoping that Yin Shixiong would stop asking about Bai Shuang and Zhao Liangze .
However, her strategy was soon discovered by Yin Shixiong .
He glared at her and said, “I’ve told you everything; now it’s your turn to tell me . What happened between Bai Shuang and Little Ze? If the two are so in love and engaged, why would Bai Shuang… sacrifice herself??”
Gu Nianzhi quickly thought about a way to answer Yin Shixiong’s question without revealing confidential information .
Although Yin Shixiong was also a member of the Special Operations Forces and a Deputy-Chief, he had not participated in this operation .
Gu Nianzhi had no idea how much he was allowed to know or how much he should know .
But just as Yin Shixiong said, she could still tell him a little bit about the relationship between Bai Shuang and Zhao Liangze .
But this bit of information was closely related to their operation .
It was rare that Gu Nianzhi had a hard time thinking about something .
She sighed and slowly enunciated her words as she said, “…Actually, you can consider Brother Ze’s actions as… Someone whose true love had suddenly passed away, so his actions are the result of a spontaneous reaction due to severe psychological trauma . ”
Yin Shixiong, “…”
He understood each individual word, be he didn’t know what Gu Nianzhi was talking about when she strung them together .
“…Speak like a human . ” Yin Shixiong stepped on the gas pedal expressionlessly .
The car suddenly accelerated with a roar, overtaking a few cars in the fast lane .
Gu Nianzhi grabbed the lever over her head and said helplessly, “It’s true . Think about it yourself, if…”
“Shut up!” Yin Shixiong cast a glare at Gu Nianzhi . “Don’t use Little Ze and Bai Shuang’s situation on Qiqi and me!”
“That’s not it!” Gu Nianzhi closed her palms and breathed a sigh of relief .
She finally managed to fool him .
Gu Nianzhi really didn’t know if she would be leaking intelligence if Yin Shixiong questioned her any further .
Fortunately, Yin Shixiong did not ask any more questions .
He didn’t actually want to know the details of their operation . He just wanted to learn more about Zhao Liangze’s situation so he could help him .
They had a strong relationship as colleagues and brothers for so many years, so they had long become a family even though they weren’t related .
Yin Shixiong felt terrible seeing Zhao Liangze lose his purpose in life .
Yin Shixiong was even more sympathetic to Zhao Liangze since he had a happy relationship and would soon have a happy marriage .
Now that Yin Shixiong understood that it was indeed a relationship problem from the little bit Gu Nianzhi revealed, he was relieved to learn that there was nothing else involved .
Gu Nianzhi noticed that Yin Shixiong had stopped mentioning Zhao Liangze and Bai Shuang, so she was also relieved and turned to the topic of Yin Shixiong and Ma Qiqi’s marriage .
“Brother Xiong, when do you plan to hold the wedding after your marriage report is approved?”
Yin Shixiong turned the steering wheel to get on the highway to the airport and calmly replied, “Actually, I wanted it to be as soon as possible . But now that something happened to Little Ze, I can’t enjoy the happiness on my own . I plan to wait a year, so the matter between Little Ze and Bai Shuang fades before we will discuss our marriage . ”
Gu Nianzhi nodded in agreement . “Brother Xiong, I’m relieved you said that . Anyway, Qiqi is still young, and there is no hurry . ”
“She’s not in a hurry, but I’m in a hurry!” Yin Shixiong glared at Gu Nianzhi and said, “Who is closer to you, anyway? Why do I feel that you’ve betrayed me for her?”
“But Qiqi is my good friend . ” Gu Nianzhi spread her palms . “You are my brother . Friends are like siblings, and brothers are like clothes . Which one do you think is important?”
“Hmph! I don’t want to be clothes . ” Yin Shixiong reached his hand out to ruffle her hair as he said, “I will be your friend, a friend as close as a sibling . ”
“Yeah . ” Gu Nianzhi smiled and squinted her eyes . “Friends are like siblings, and brothers are like brachial muscles . Are you happy with that?”
“Nianzhi, you are becoming more and more amazing . I can’t win against you anymore . ” Yin Shixiong was happy, proud, and also felt a little warm from Gu Nianzhi’s words . “You must know that I am widely recognized as a glib tongue . ”
“No, no . ” Gu Nianzhi pretended to be humble . “I am just supported by my peers . ”
“Hmph! You gloat over a few words of praise, and that’s not okay . We have to be humble . Do you understand that?” Yin Shixiong laughed and teased her as he pulled into the airport parking lot .
Inside Huo Shaoheng’s car, he wore a Bluetooth headset while he drove to discuss business with General Ji .
Huo Shaoheng had only given an official briefing at the meeting today, so there were many specific things that he certainly could not say during it .
General Ji read the briefing and thought of the letter from Gu’s family that she had read out loud . He couldn’t help but feel more curious about Gu Nianzhi’s father, Gu Xiangwen .
He called Huo Shaoheng and asked, “Shaoheng, did you find the whereabouts of Gu Xiangwen?”
Huo Shaoheng paused .
He had stationed Zhao Liangze at the waters of Cape of Good Hope near Cape Town to search for information about flight MH210 .
However, Bai Shuang had perished while the whereabouts of the plane was still being investigated . Huo Shaoheng didn’t know how long it would take Zhao Liangze to commit to work again .
He rubbed his eyebrows gingerly but calmly replied to General Ji, “General Ji, we are still investigating . At present, many clues indicate that the situation is not optimistic . ”
Li Dexi was considered to be a master of intelligence agencies across Europe and America . Since he personally came forward to pursue items related to the Gu family, that meant Gu Xiangwen had probably perished already .
