Chapter 1321: The USB Flash Drive Has Been StolenTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Three hours later, the old man moved his eyes away from the microscope and looked at the pills he had made. His shoulders shook with excitement.
He quickly found his phone and took a photo. Then, he pulled out the few contacts in the communication channel and sent it to the person marked Q.
It was still six in the afternoon in Beijing. The summer weather was just right.
Qiao Nian returned to the apartment and went upstairs to take a shower before coming out, wiping her shiny black hair with a towel.
Seeing her laptop light up on the table, she walked over and clicked on a button with one hand. With the other, she picked up the bottle of mineral water lying beside her. She unscrewed the cap and leaned sideways against the edge of the desk. Tilting her head back, her throat moved up and down as she took a sip.
She screwed the lid back on and put the mineral water down. Without moving her eyes, she clicked on the photo sent to her.
The photo showed a series of cryptic numbers.
Qiao Nian read the experimental data ten lines at a time. Her fingers covered the mouse as she calmly disposed of the photo, ensuring that no one would steal it through the Internet.
She finished and picked up the towel again, intending to continue drying her hair.
In the end, she received a call from Liang Conglin.
Liang Conglin’s voice asked her anxiously as soon as the call went through.
“Qiao Nian, do you still have a copy of the robot system you made this afternoon on your computer?”
The robot system she made this afternoon?
Qiao Nian narrowed her eyes in surprise. “No.”
She wasn’t in the habit of making backups. Basically, the things she handled were unique, including the heated virus outside, the iris verification system, and so on.
There was only one copy for every creation. She never made a second copy.
Furthermore, the robot operating system that Liang Conglin had mentioned was only an assignment for the competition. There was no reason for her to specially make a backup.
However, Qiao Nian keenly sensed the anxiety in his tone. Her eyes darkened as she whispered, “Principal Liang, what happened?”
“The flash drive you handed to Professor Du and the others was stolen!”
Liang Conglin had seen Qiao Nian’s connections and strength in the illegal district and knew that she was not just an ordinary student.
He did not have so many scruples when talking to her and told her about the emergency at school without hiding anything. “We’ve already checked with the security room, but we’re not sure if we can find the missing USB drive. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to find it, so I thought of calling you to ask if you have a backup on your computer…
“If you don’t have a backup on your computer, we have to find your USB…”
Qiao Nian raised her eyebrows, her tone surprised. “My USB drive was stolen?”
Who would steal a USB drive for no reason?
Furthermore, the other party could enter the teacher’s office of the computer faculty of Qing University to steal things.
Qiao Nian couldn’t help but think of the few students she had bumped into when she left in the afternoon.
One of them stood out among them—Yin Wenzhi.
She did it?
Qiao Nian tilted her head. Her skin was extremely fair, and her lowered eyelashes hid the emotions in her eyes. The line of her neck was perfect and smooth. Her black and shiny hair, which had just been washed, made the skin on her neck look even fairer.
“I don’t have a backup on my computer.”
“I understand.” Liang Conglin’s voice sounded loud on the other end of the call. “I’ll check the surveillance cameras with the school teacher first and see who stole it. I’ll try my best to get the USB flash drive back. If we really can’t find it… we’ll have to think of another way!”
