ind the research here. To the higher-ups, the projects given to these new recruits were only a cover for the outsiders to see. He still had his own experiments to do, and did not want to waste time on these meaningless chores. Even if Ye Chong were to blunder up, it would not matter. Donald hoped that the work would be good training for Ye Chong. To him, that was what most young people lacked.
Ye Chong said nothing. Donald was happy to see him so steady, and so declared that the meeting was over.
"Assistant Gao, please have a look at this matrix arrangement."
"Assistant Gao, can you please look at this new photon circuit schematics? I can’t seem to find out where the problem is."
There were too many requests like these coming in, and Ye Chong soon earned their respect. Qiu Man did not object to Donald’s decision after her return. Besides, Ye Chong’s performance surprised them all.
Even Donald, who gave the role to Ye Chong, was also surprised. He did not expect Ye Chong to do his job so well. To him, the young man may be a genius, but he was only a 20-year-old teen, and knowledge took time to accumulate.
However, Ye Chong’s performance was too impressive.
Ye Chong had a solid foundation, and was familiar with a wide range of subjects that people began to wonder is he was actually a Great Master in mechs in his previous life! Almost all problems presented to him were easily solved, and while they may be very difficult, some of them involved some relatively unknown mech subjects.
Who was his teacher? What would it take to produce such an exemplary student?
In particular, his creativity and flexibility were astonishing. His creative solutions were all easy to realise, and mose people began to wonder if he was actually an old veteran in mech modifications. Young people may be bursting with creativity, but most of them were unrealistic ideas, impossible to translate into actual products.
This was the difference between reality and ideas.
Only a truly experienced mech modification technician could handle the delicate balance between the two. Soon, the researchers found that the young assistant called Gao Ye was able to translate his creativity into practical solutions. This ability that did not match his age won the approval of the other researchers.
The atmosphere in the research center was cheerful, and Ye Chong’s performance won respect and approval. No one doubted the appropriateness of Donald’s decision.
In fact, Ye Chong was quite taken aback by the atmosphere around him. Fortunately, he still remembered his original mission. His keen sense told him that the woman called Qiu Man was watching him. Many a time did he find that woman’s smiling eyes flash meaningfully at him.
The woman was an annoyance to Ye Chong. Her smile was always faint and unreadable. Ye Chong found that no one could stand against her. Even Old Donald, with his skin all wrinkled up from age, would blush at the sight of her.
This made Ye Chong wary. He dared not relax whenever the woman was around. Fortunately, nothing strange had happened so far. The woman’s influence was so strong that it surprised Ye Chong. Just a glance, and Ye Chong could feel his heart racing for no reason.
When it had happened the first time, Ye Chong was almost scared out of his wits, thinking that he was attacked by an unknown force. Was it an infrasound wave attack? Fortunately, he quickly caught up to what was really happening.
"Biology class really does come in handy." Such was Ye Chong’s first thought upon his realisation.
Ye Chong never thought that a person’s glance could be so powerful. Fortunately, he was also very good at controlling himself. Even as he trembled inside, his face betrayed nothing. This became something of a legend in the research center, as Ye Chong was the only man who could stay composed before Qiu Man.
Ever since that last incident, Ye Chong was very conscious of his own reactions. It was not that he thought badly of this natural response, but he felt that it would put him in danger.
Ye Chong remembered someone saying that the difference between humans and animals is that humans could control their natural instincts.
Besides, the expressionless man standing behind the woman was also someone he should be careful of. While Ye Chong could not see any reason for that man to attack him, the situation was still unclear. If he grew careless before a combat expert and made a mistake, he would be so dead.
Qiu Man smiled enticingly and called, "Gao Ye."
It was like a flower had bloomed in full glory, and everyone in the entire room except Ye Chong experienced a lapse in attention. Ye Chong acknowledged with a wooden expression, but inside he was tormented. This was not the first time for him, but Ye Chong had no choice. His reaction was also the center of attention. If he ignored the woman any further, he would create further problems for himself.
For the time being, Ye Chong did not want to stir things up, but this did not mean that he was averse to it. Ye Chong lowered his head, and the flash in his eyes went unnoticed.
