Embers Ad Infinitum - Chapter 316
Underground building, 349 floors.
Unlike most floors, even after nine o’clock in the evening, there are still sporadic street lights on the street. There will be no light at all, but it looks dim and will not affect the rest of the residents.
After Jiang Baimian entered his home at No. 12 in District C, he found that his parents had not yet returned, so he went to the study first and used his father’s computer and his account to browse the news in recent months.
Except for the Natural Sect, there is nothing worthy of attention… Nor did the follow-up investigation of the “Life Sacrifice” sect… Is it based on secrecy, no Internet access? Or, Lao Jiang’s authority is not enough? When Jiang Baimian turned the mouse wheel and flipped down the webpage, he sensed three weak electrical signals approaching outside the door.
Three shares? Jiang Baimian stood up questioningly and walked out of the study.
As soon as she opened the door, she saw her father Jiang Wenfeng and mother Xue Sumei.
In addition, there is a middle-aged man she is not familiar with.
The other party’s hair is thick and jet black, but it’s a bit messy, and it doesn’t pay much attention to the external image at first glance.
He has a pair of gold-rimmed glasses on his nose, and his temperament is very gentle.
”Dad, Mom.” After Jiang Baimian said hello, he cast his eyes on the stranger.
Jiang Wenfeng, with some silver threads in his black hair, understood what his daughter meant, and explained with a smile:
”Called Uncle Mei.”
”Uncle Mei is good.” In front of the elders, Jiang Baimian has always been well-behaved.
The middle-aged man surnamed Mei smiled and nodded:
”Is it Mianmian?”
I don’t like being called by a nickname… Jiang Baimian tried his best to keep a smile, and replied with “um”.
”You look so good, you seem to have a D7 level, right?” While the middle-aged man named Mei spoke, he turned his attention to Jiang Wenfeng and Xue Sumei, “If it weren’t for my child’s young age and only teenagers, I really want your family Mianmian is my daughter-in-law.”
Jiang Baimian has listened to this kind of praise a lot, and will no longer be embarrassed.
Xue Sumei was about to say something politely, when the middle-aged man surnamed Mei suddenly burped for a long time, as if there was a lot of gas surging up in his stomach.
”Haha, old stomach problems, old stomach problems.” He then explained with a wry smile.
After a few more greetings, the middle-aged man surnamed Mei waved goodbye to the Jiang family and walked to the other side of the C area.
Jiang Baimian watched his back disappear to the corner, and asked curiously:
”Dad, why haven’t I seen this Uncle Mei?”
”It’s strange that you have seen him. He is the M1 who has just risen recently. Hongmeng Research The deputy director of the institute.” Jiang Wenfeng said as he walked into the living room.
M represents the management, and M1 is the lowest level, including the deputy positions of major departments and the heads of important research projects.
Xi Yu, the deputy minister of the Ministry of Security, and Jiang Wenfeng, the father of Jiang Baimian, are among the ranks.
”Oh, just moved here.” Jiang Baimian suddenly realized.
In order not to be nagged by Xue Sumei, she turned to ask:
”Where did you go, how did you come back?”
Jiang Wenfeng, who was over half a hundred years old, glanced at his little daughter:
”Not only does your ears fail , but your memory seems to be bad Great.
”Have you forgotten that today is Huang’s birthday?” At this time of year, we will take you to his house as a guest. “
Jiang Baimian was taken aback for a while, “Ouch” said:
”I’m getting confused these days. “
Huang Lao, whose full name is Huang Renhui, is a member of the board of directors, chief scientist and M3 level management of “Pangu Biology”.
Xue Sumei immediately stared at Jiang Baimian when she heard this sentence:
”You talk about you, all day long, how can you be the leader of the investigation team for the causes of the destruction of the old world? You are not afraid of harming those team members. Is it better to transfer to the company and stay in the company? You are not young anymore…”
Jiang Baimian heard the blood vessels in his forehead twitch slightly, looked at Jiang Wenfeng with help-seeking eyes, and whispered:
”Ah. , What did you say, I didn’t hear it?” Jiang Wenfeng raised his hand and touched his ear.
He learned from Jiang Baimian’s usual performance very well.
Baimian was angry and funny, his thoughts turned sharply, and he asked: “Is that Uncle Mei also been a guest at Huang’s home just now?
” Where is his wife?” “
She knew that this topic must be the type that her mother was interested in.
Xue Sumei really got the trick and looked out the window:
”I heard that she passed away a year ago. Really, she couldn’t wait until Mei Shou An Sheng M1…”
”What does Uncle Mei study? Jiang
Baimian turned the topic to the direction where his dad would chat about this. Jiang Wenfeng sat on the recliner by the window and said with a smile:
”Actually, you still met him a few times when you were a child, but it’s been too long. I definitely don’t remember.
”He was also engaged in plant science before, but then he somehow switched to studying the mysteries of the human body. This is what he is mainly responsible for at the Hongmeng Research Institute.
”You look through various reports, documents, and news. Whenever you see a number at the beginning of C, His projects are more or less related to him. “
”No wonder he knows my nickname…” Jiang Baimian suddenly realized.
She had just finished speaking, and she was stunned.
She remembered one thing:
The experimental project that Shang Jianyao participated as a volunteer was called “C-14”!
Studying the mysteries of the human body…”C-14″…Shang Jianyao became the awakened…Uncle Mei just recently promoted the M1 management…Jiang Baimian combined these information together, showing a thoughtful expression .
”What are you thinking?” Jiang Wenfeng glanced at her and asked.
”Ah, what are you talking about?” Jiang Baimian habitually touched his cochlea.
Jiang Wenfeng repeated it angrily.
”I’m wondering if I have seen the item starting with C.” Jiang Baimian replied half-truth.
Jiang Wenfeng sighed:
”Your ears, let’s find time to get an implantable cochlea. “I’m
really scared, so I’ll find a psychiatrist for treatment first. “
Xue Sumei followed and nagged about this matter.
Jiang Baimian smiled and dealt with his parents. With his emotional intelligence and eloquence, he finally passed this level.
next day, Jiang Baimian got up on time and washed up. After going out,
she took the elevator to the 647th floor. She didn’t relax herself because of the vacation, and she was
fine at home anyway . After she changed into a fitted fighting suit and took a fresh and clean towel, Jiang Baimian turned into the training room commonly used by the group.
As soon as she walked in, she saw Shang Jian Yao practicing handstand there.
”What’s the use of practicing this? “Jiang Baimian asked with a slightly complicated expression.
There are more and better ways to purely exercise balance.
When Shang saw Yao’s legs fell, he used his waist and abdomen to stand up.
He said earnestly:
”I am preparing for some day to meet the same type of awakened person.
”When my hands can’t make movements, I still have feet. “
Although Jiang Baimian felt that this was indescribably strange, she had to admit that Shang Jian Yao’s logic was self-consistent.
She thought about it and said:
”The better way is to get some chip-assisted weapons.”
”It’s like some modules of Gnawa.”
Shang Jianyao’s eyes lit up:
”Yes! If I transform one hand into a machine, I won’t be afraid that my hands will be missing.”
Jiang Baimian thought intuitively This topic will develop into a very dangerous direction, and I hurried to ask another thing:
”Didn’t you say that you are about to break through the third island?”
She has confirmed that there are no surveillance cameras in the training room and no hidden bugs.
”Breakthrough.” Shang Jianyao gave the answer in a tone of what he had for breakfast today.
”What has changed?” Jiang Baimian asked in surprise.
Shang Jianyao gave a rough description of his experimental results, and finally said:
”The specific values will not be finalized until the tester Xiaohong arrives, but they should all be within the range I said.”
”How do you always bully others Xiaohong .” Jiang Baimian laughed out loud, “Come on, I’ll be a volunteer.”
”There must be more than one.” Shang Jianyao emphasized.
At this time, Long Yuehong, who had changed into training clothes, walked in and asked with a smile:
”What are you talking about so happy?” As
soon as the voice fell, he saw Shang Jianyao and Jiang Baimian looking at him at the same time.
”You guys, what are you going to do?” Long Yuehong took a step back in fright and almost ran into Bai Chen who was about to enter the door.
After a while, the “old tune group” team activities ended, Jiang Baimian nodded lightly and said:
”It’s still almost an increase of 50%.
” The exact range of the “inference clown” is nine meters.
”I don’t know what Shang Jianyao’s next island will look like…” Long Yuehong muttered to herself curiously.
Suppliers see Yao serious thought:
. “I think we should be afraid of those islands should be a”
!! “I have confidence ah,” Jiang white cotton laughing voice, “Come on, physical activity, prepare training”
This does not include white In the morning, the fracture of her shoulder hadn’t healed completely, so she came to the training room mainly to maintain her physical condition.
At the end of the training, Jiang Baimian remembered the Uncle Mei he met last night, and turned his head to look at Shang Jianyao:
”Do you remember who hosted the’C -14′ project you participated in?
”Have you seen it? ” Is Mei Shouan this person? “
Shang Jianyao recalled:
”I was in a bed at the time. A nurse wearing a mask injected me with anesthetic, then fell asleep and entered the’Hall of Stars’.
”When I woke up, I was asked and checked by different researchers, but I don’t know who Mei Shouan is.”
You said earlier? Jiang Baimian immediately described Mei Shouan’s appearance.
At this time, both Long Yuehong and Bai Chen looked at Shang Jianyao, waiting for his answer.
They were quite interested in the research project that Shang Jianyao participated in.
Shang Jianyao quickly said in a sure tone:
”I just turned over my memory last night, there is no such person.”
”Okay.” Jiang Baimian asked no longer.
The four separated immediately and went to the small bathhouse.
After washing themselves and changing their clothes, they first met in the corridor and then returned to Room 14 together.
At the door, Jiang Baimian checked the mailbox casually, and there was a letter lying inside.
She took a look and found that the recipient was Shang Jianyao.
”Yours.” Jiang Baimian entered the room and threw the letter to Shang Jianyao.
She didn’t feel too strange about this, because the “Old Tune Team” was Shang Jianyao’s “work unit”, and it was normal to send a letter here.
Shang Jian Yao quickly opened it, glanced at it, and calmly said:
”The’C-14′ project asked me to do a test. This is a follow-up observation within half a year.”
Just half a year, he was on the surface, so when he came back , The letter is here.
